Film Review: 'Alice Through The Looking Glass'

5 hours ago

At some point midway through the follow-up to Tim Burton’s live-action Alice in Wonderland, the heroine asks an antagonist, not sarcastically, “Can I have a moment of your time?”  Moviegoer beware: if approached with such an entreaty about watching this movie, you best politely decline.  This time around, Alice Through the Looking Glass, based in name only on Lewis Carroll’s sequel to his immensely popular Adventures in Wonderland, gives viewers little reason to care about the characters or their latest escapades.  Despite rescuable technical elements, the film instead becomes the first big dud of the summer blockbuster season.

The movie actually begins promisingly, with a short but intense action sequence of Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) in a daring escape from chasing pirate ships. James Bobin, the director (of The Muppets fame), though showing crispness during this sea voyage, soon founders as Alice reaches land and, later, Wonderland.  Alice »

Star-Lord Will Finally Go Home in Infinity War

7 hours ago

Next in the installment of "obvious news finally being confirmed by important people", we can say that the Guardians of The Galaxy will be in Infinity War. The writers for Captain America: Civil War, and soon Infinity War, were interviewed by Nerdist in which the had a discussion on whether or not any of the powerful cosmic heroes would show up in some capacity in Infinity War. The writers then playfully made a comment on how both of Thanos' children showed up in Guardians Of The Galaxy, and that we should "do the math." Well, I don't know what more someone would need to finally have this news confirmed. Maybe the Russo's should tattoo "Gotg in Infinity War" on their forehead or something.

This info is also cool because we have an even broader mental image of the scope that these movies will have. This isn't going to be a personal film ala Civil War, »

Yes, Geoff Johns is working on Batman with Ben Affleck (he finally said something about it)

8 hours ago

It's odd how much of a 180 degree turn has happened behind the scenes for DC. Not to long ago it was announced that Geoff Johns, an actual comic book writer and person who has some form of interest in the characters, would be the big boss at the head of a new branch at Warner Brothers labeled 'DC Films'. And hot off of that news we found out just how important Johns' other project 'DC Rebirth' truly is, and how it seems to change a few things for the better in the DC comic book universe. So to add to the streak of rather positive DC news, and more importantly, Geoff Johns articles, is the confirmation that he will in fact team-up with Ben Affleck to tackle the task of bringing a true and good Batman story to a theater near all of us.

Johns was interviewed by ComicBook and »

New Black Panther Casting Call Rumors

9 hours ago

Black Panther may be over two years and five Marvel films from its release, but that hasn't stopped immense hype surrounding the movie. In addition to solid introduction the character received in this month's Captain America: Civil War, the fact that there will be a black actor leading a superhero film is quite the big deal. Sure, it's happened before with the Blade series, but in the current generation of films, most non-white actors have been reduced to side characters. With a reported 90% African or African American cast, Black Panther promises to be a step in the right direction for diversity in Hollywood.

Ever since Civil War hit theaters a few weeks back, there have been tons of reports and rumors surrounding the cast. In talks to join the flick have been Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan, but of course there is a much greater cast surrounding the flick, »

His marriage to a former slave, Rachel, and his subsequent establishment of a mixed race community was unique in the post-war South.

Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War. »

Rumor: How Big Will Batman's Role be in 'Suicide Squad'?

12 hours ago

Most fans and critics seem to agree that Batman was one of the best things to come out of the recent Batman v Superman film. Ben Affleck managed to bring us the scariest, most demented Batman ever realized on the big screen, and considering how well received he was, it's great that DC and WB had already thrown him into the next film in their cinematic universe, Suicide Squad.

The biggest question going into practically any film set in a shared universe is how much time a certain character will have on screen. In this instance, fans are wondering how extensive Batman's involvement will be in the movie, and who he will interact with. Given DC and WB's track record, will they make the entire premise rest on Batman's shoulders, or will they have the confidence to trudge forth down a new path? Sounds like the latter may, »

Comic Book Review Civil War II #0

15 hours ago

   The problems with sequels is expectation. When you have a project that is received so well by an audience, a follow up is not always able to reach the levels of expectation people want from that product. For every “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Godfather II” there’s “The Matrix Reloaded”, a sequel that advanced the story but did not reach the level of expectation people had for it.

   The biggest Marvel event of the past decade was Civil War. Marvel, doing what they do best, assembled every character in their arsenal and gave us a story that touched upon some real life issues in a way that wasn’t preachy and didn’t pound you over the head with it’s obviousness. To create a sequel to a story that is so well received would be a tough job for any team.

Will Elsa Get a Girlfriend in 'Frozen' Sequel?

16 hours ago

Sounds like the gears of progress may be working their way in Disney's upcoming Frozen 2. While there has been no word from Disney regarding Elsa's sexual orientation, it sounds like many fans out there desperately want to see the character come out of the closet in the next Frozen film.

In case you haven't heard, there's a fan petition out there that goes under the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, and while this is by no means official by any stretch of the imagination, we know now at the very least that Frozen actress Idina Menzel has heard the cries. In a recent interview with Et Online, the film actress and Broadway star expressed her support for the campaign.

“I think it’s great. Disney’s just gotta contend with that. I’ll let them figure that out. No matter what, [Elsa] changed my life.”

If Menzel has heard the cries, you can rest »

'Independence Day: Resurgence' Gets A Super-sized Extended Trailer!

18 hours ago

I vividly remember the experience of seeing the first Independence Day. I had just turned 13, and to celebrate my official arrival to teen-dom, my father took me to see Independence Day (which opened July 3). I remember feeling like this was the first "event" film I'd ever been to. It had a mystique about it, since it wasn't a sequel or related to any other known property. The trailers had built it up to be this one-of-a-kind cinematic event that had to be seen in theaters, and I imagine I had an experience similar to the folks that lived through the first-ever "summer blockbuster," Jaws in 1975. 

The theater was packed. People were excited. When the lights went down, and the action began, you could feel a communal sense of awe. Remember, while these kinds of wide-scale destruction are commonplace these days, back in 1996 to see an alien ship hover over the »

Confirmed: The Identity of The Dead Robin In 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

18 hours ago

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice was something of a techno remix of classic DC Comics storylines. Zack Snyder provided the main beat, but he worked in samples of several beloved classics to spice things up. In there, you had the obvious two, which were The Dark Knight Returns and The Death Of Superman, but there was also a reference to Batman: A Death In The Family. 

Seen briefly in the film was this glimpse of the costume of one of Batman's former Robins. As those of us who follow the books know, several people have taken on the mantle of Robin, and there was one- in particular- that famously bit the dust. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice didn't give us much to work with, aside from Bruce Wayne glancing at the suit, and a split-second of time to read what appears to be The Joker's vandalism of it. »
