19 strangely Christmassy sci-fi and horror movies

23 December 2010 1:55 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Christmas has a hell of a PR agent. A good PR maximises the audience for their client, always looking for lateral markets beyond the core appeal of the product. So if Christmas is fundamentally about giving, goodwill and forgiveness, there's no harm - from a PR's point of view - if it can also be made to be about sex, death and loneliness too. We seem to have had our traditional - and always sad - fusillade of pre-Christmas celebrity deaths this year, and if we're lucky, the period between now and new year will bring no new and nasty surprises in that line.

In the meantime our TV screens have filled up customarily with ads for perfume and booze which remind us that Christmas is also a Pagan-style locus for celebrations of the carnal and sensory. And with campaigns targeted at those who have no invite to the celebrations »

'The Walking Dead' Season Finale, Krampus, And 'Yogi Bear' In Today's Twitter Report

6 December 2010 10:44 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Last night's "Walking Dead" season finale on AMC turned out to be mighty divisive in the Twitter Report feed. Rob Liefeld was a big fan, but Brian Keene, DJ Coffman and Brandon Jerwa all had criticisms to discuss, and Christos Gage had a theory to share about the whisper.

You can find out whose side you're on after the jump, where you'll also find a TwitPic link to some celebratory Krampus art from Guy Davis, a "Yogi Bear" movie-related wish and some harsh words for the Green Bay Packers' jerseys yesterday.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and these retweets comprise the Twitter Report for December 6, 2010.

@GuyDavisART "It's beginning to look a lot like Krampus! Ev'rywhere ya go~" http://twitpic.com/3den9b

-Guy Davis, Writer/Artist ("The Marquis," "B.P.R.D.")

"The Walking Dead" pt. 1: @BrianKeene An underwhelming and ultimately unsatisfying finale, but still better than 80% of the other sh-- on TV. »

Over the Halloween weekend, The Daily Beast asked Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese (The Departed, The Aviator) to put together a list of his favorite horror films of all time.

4th Scary Movies Series at the FilmLinc: Jim Mickle's Stake Land

29 October 2010 1:05 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Last night Stake Land opened Film Society of Lincoln Center’s fourth annual “Scary Movies” festival. The festival is rather unique as it blends some of the familiar classics, such as Hellraiser, Carrie, Dead of Night, with some rarities like Jack Cardiff’s The Mutations and Legend of Hell House to new flavors such as Australia's The Loved Ones, Triangle and last night’s opener, the Tiff Midnight Madness Audience Award winner, Stake Land. The Walter Reade Theater was packed – due to the films’ pedigree coming from almost entirely New York city production companies. The face in the room who everyone knew was budding cult celebrity and horror film superstar Larry Fessenden. He and his partner Peter Phok produced the film for Glass Eye Pix, and obviously Fessenden had his signature cameo. Additionally, those guys who lay claim to four of the first five Red Cameras in existence, Offhollywood, also producers on the film, »

'Mad Men' Reviews, 'Halo: Reach' Encounters, And Marvel Cats In Today's Twitter Report

20 September 2010 11:29 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Last week's "Halo: Reach" release has been generating happy tweets on a daily basis in the Twitter Report feed. Yesterday, artist Mike Norton offered an assessment of the game and Nathan Fillion joked around with someone whose name you'll probably recognize at a "Reach" party.

Elsewhere, there was no shortage of "Mad Men" opinions pouring into the feed Sunday night. Mark Millar is just now getting acquainted with the series but if you caught the newest episode "The Beautiful Girls," you'll know what David Gallaher and Paul Southworth were talking about. Find out if you share their sentiments down below where you'll also see some Marvel characters drawn as cats and a "Doom Patrol" work post from Brian Keene.

Clip Joint: ventriloquists

1 September 2010 10:06 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Stitch the lip and swap one glove for a puppet as Alexandra Coghlan mumbles through the best ventriloquists on film

There's something reliably disturbing about a ventriloquist act. Third only to taxidermists and gynaecologists among people you'd rather not find sitting next to you at a dinner party, ventriloquists reverse the natural order of things – giving grinning life to what should be inanimate, dead, silent.

Together with taxidermists (and gynaecologists, for that matter) these preternatural puppeteers have spawned a cinematic sub-genre all their own, feeding off our deepest psychoses of identity, or perhaps just exploiting an appealingly perverse avenue for horror.

Uncanny in the truly Freudian sense – at once familiar and deeply alien – a ventriloquist's dummy is the dysfunctional cousin of Chucky and Frankenstein who has yet to cut the paternal apron strings. These ties work both ways; as much as the ventriloquist gives life to his dummy so his dummy takes it from him. »

Promo Trailer for Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night Starring Brandon Routh

17 August 2010 7:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After the barely-a-first-look at Dylan Dog: Dead of Night from a couple weeks ago, we now have a real promo trailer for the movie.  The film’s been kicking around post-production for a while, but this promo trailer could be a good signal that it’s finally nearing a serious release date.  Then again, after seeing the promo trailer, perhaps the movie belongs in post-production hell.  While I understand promo trailers are cut to entice buyers rather than the general public, this one makes Dead of Night look like a bad episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer crossed with Hellboy if Hellboy wasn’t any good.

Dylan Dog is one of the most popular comic books of all-time in Italy.  I wonder how fans will feel after seeing this trailer.  Check it out for yourself after the jump.

Twitter Report: 'Scott Pilgrim' Box Office, NFL Pre-Season, And Beer In Afghanistan

16 August 2010 12:16 PM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

"Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" may not have fulfilled box office expectations with its reported $10.5 million weekend. You'll be hard-pressed to find negative feedback in the comics community on Twitter, though news of the theater receipt totals from the last several days has sparked concern and debate.

After the jump, you'll be be able to see where Erik Larsen, Skottie Young and Brian Michael Bendis weighed in, as well as how Ron Marz feels about the NFL's pre-season games kicking into gear again. All of this was accompanied by a shot from the Afghanistan trip that Steven Cloud is currently on and a slice of life tweet from "B.P.R.D." artist Guy Davis.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 16, 2010.

Toy Story 3 | Film review

17 July 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Brimming with wonderful satire and lump-in-the-throat nostalgia, the final Toy Story film provides a fitting end to a classic trilogy

As always, the generous gang at Pixar films offer excellent value, starting with the usual bonus of an animated short as a curtain raiser for the feature. In this case it's the delightful, five-minute Day & Night, directed by Teddy Newton, who worked on The Incredibles, Ratatouille and the magnificent Pixar short Presto, which accompanied Wall-e. Two amorphous, asexual creatures – like cartoon ghosts – confront each other against a flat, black background. One, it transpires, is the surly Night, the other the cheerful Day. Within the outline of each two-dimensional figure we're shown 3D images of the world in sunlight and moonlight, of Las Vegas neon-lit by night and under blue skies by day. The pair mime their challenges and at the end come to accept their happy, complementary roles.

Went the Day Well? | Film review

13 July 2010 2:47 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

One of Alberto Cavalcanti's supreme masterworks

Alberto Cavalcanti (1897-1982), born in Brazil to Italian parents, is one of the key figures in movie history. He studied law and architecture in Europe before making a reputation in France as a production designer and a pioneer director of the style that became known as poetic realism. In the mid-1930s John Grierson recruited him for the British documentary movement (his most famous picture from that time is Coal Face), and during the second world war Michael Balcon brought him to Ealing to give the studio's output a shot of documentary realism. Known to his colleagues as "Cav" and signing his movies with just his surname, his first film there was Went the Day Well? (1943), the best, most ferocious picture of the war years. He followed it with three films very much in the British vein Balcon sought to mine: Champagne Charlie, »

Our debt to Alberto Cavalcanti

2 July 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He was behind the Ealing films and made a handful of the most polished, imaginative and enjoyable movies of the 1940s. It's time the name of Alberto Cavalcanti was better known, argues Kevin Jackson

'Directed by Cavalcanti" runs the last of the black-and-white title credits. Back in the 1940s, the ordinary chap in the Odeon's ninepenny stalls is baffled, even annoyed. Who on earth is this jumped-up foreigner, thinking he's so bloody famous that he doesn't need a first name? (In fact, Cavalcanti was widely seen as one of the most self-effacing, charming men ever to have worked in film.) And why is a bloody Eyetie in charge of a British film – let alone an Ealing film, the most British productions of all? (In fact, Cavalcanti was Brazilian.) But those in the audience who had noticed the unusual credit once or twice before settled deeper into their red plush seats, »

25 June 2010 9:01 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Way back last year, you may remember hearing some rumblings about a "Firebreather" series headed to the Cartoon Network. Well, creator Phil Hester tweeted some info yesterday that you may be interested in about a certain TV movie being discussed at San Diego this year.

By the time Comic-Con roles around, I'm sure people will still be discussing the iPhone 4, which came out this week. A handful of creators have been tweeting about the reported reception issues the device has been experiencing. Check out what their consensus is after the jump, as well as a "Glee" episode micro-review from Phil Jimenez and some comics criticism from Gail Simone and Brian Keene.

Ray Alan obituary

24 May 2010 10:52 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Popular television ventriloquist paired with the aristocratic puppet Lord Charles

Popular television ventriloquist paired with the aristocratic puppet Lord Charles

In his heyday, Ray Alan, who has died aged 79, was described by some as the world's greatest ventriloquist, and his dummy was the boozy Lord Charles. The hoity-toity aristocrat with his put-down catchphrases, such as "Blurry fool!" and "You silly arse!", proved to be a long-lived inspiration at a time when so many other ventriloquists and their dummies were going out of business.

Lord Charles enabled the British and American publics to enjoy on television a send-up of the British aristocracy. The fact that his lordship's speech was drunken and slurred enabled the ventriloquist to speak with a minimum of mouth movement, even when under the scrutiny of television cameras. For those less ingenious than Alan, the fact that they were "throwing" their own voices into a dummy was all too visible. »
