Movie Review – Life After Flash (2017)

4 October 2017 6:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Life After Flash, 2017.

Directed by Lisa Downs.

Synopsis:

Looking back at how Flash Gordon influenced movies, pop culture and its stars.

Funded partly on Indiegogo back in 2015, Life After Flash is a movie that is made by fans, for the fans. This is its biggest strength, that beating heart right in the centre of this very entertaining piece. It hits on many different levels and gives depth and insight not just into the creation of the movie but into the cast and crew that were involved.

Life After Flash is a wild ride that has been planned out and executed well from director Lisa Downs. Sam J. Jones, Melody Anderson, Brian Blessed and a whole host of others share their stories and experiences of either the filming experience or the effect that it had on them as they watched.

Why Flash Gordon Reboot Has Been on Indefinite Hold

22 September 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in the spring of 2015, 20th Century Fox moved forward with its long-awaited Flash Gordon remake, setting director Matthew Vaughn at the helm, but we haven't heard anything about it since then. It turns out there's a very good reason for that, with Matthew Vaughn revealing in a new interview that he's still been working on it, but his original vision for the story was basically taken by Marvel's 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. Here's what the director had to say below, when asked if he's still working on a Flash Gordon movie.

"Yeah, we've been working on it. For me, the only problem with Flash Gordon is Guardians (of the Galaxy) kind of stole what I would have liked to have done with it. You've got Star Wars, you've got Guardians, so you've got to have your own space opera, but you have to find something that can survive among these two very, »

Is 'Flash Gordon' Too Similar to 'Guardians of the Galaxy' to Return to Movies Now?

22 September 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

With Kingsman: The Golden Circle in theaters, director Matthew Vaughn can turn his attention to other projects on his plate — including the reboot of cult newspaper strip Flash Gordon that he was in talks to direct back in 2015.

Little has been heard about the 20th Century Fox feature recently, and Vaughn — who's reportedly shown up on shortlists for Warner's The Flash and Man of Steel 2 in the last few months — has suggested that one reason might be the difficulty in making Alex Raymond's comic strip stand out in today's crowded genre field.

Taika Waititi Wanted Thor: Ragnarok To Embrace “Cosmic” And “Trippy” Nature Of Comics; Cites Flash Gordon As An Inspiration

15 August 2017 7:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When compared to his fellow Avengers, Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder is arguably one of the funnier members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and there is perhaps no better example of that comedy in action than the Thor solo movies and their fish-out-of-water storylines.

When it comes to Ragnarok, writer-director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt For the Wilderpeople) is poised to double down on Thor‘s quirky qualities and embrace the “cosmic, trippy” vibe of the original comics. Between the fantastical space elements and the stunning lime-green color palette, it’s almost as if Waititi and his team have taken a leaf out of the Guardians‘ book. But as the New Zealand filmmaker told EW, the inspirations that helped mold and shape Thor: Ragnarok stretch back further still; all the way to a certain Flash Gordon.

I loved the kind of cosmic trippy vibe of the Thor comics. »

How sci-fi went mainstream

4 July 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 7, 2017

To tie in with the Into The Unknown exhibition, on now at London's Barbican, we look at how sci-fi has become a major cultural force...

It's not always easy being geeky. The celebrated genre writer Ray Bradbury knew this all too well; as a kid growing up in the 1920s and 30s, he was intoxicated by all things otherworldly and imaginative: classic horror movies, pulp sci-fi stories about Mars, comic strips detailing the exploits of Buck Rogers. Eventually, Bradbury's peers teased him mercilessly, until, in a bid to fit in, he ripped his Buck Rogers comics to shreds. But far from helping the young Bradbury draw a line under his obsessions, the destruction of his beloved comics left him feeling unhappy and soulless.

Bringing Star Wars to the Screen: Episode IV – A New Hope

25 May 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, 1977.

Directed by George Lucas.

Starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing and Alec Guinness.

Synopsis:

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… young farm boy Luke Skywalker becomes embroiled in a civil war between the heroic Rebellion and evil Galactic Empire. Setting off from his home-world, Luke must rescue a captured princess and learn the ways of the Force from Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi if he is to aid the Rebellion in destroying the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star.

During the production of his debut movie Thx-1138 (1971), young director George Lucas had expressed considerable interested in adapting the adventures of Flash Gordon for the big screen but, after being unable to acquire the rights to the character, Lucas soon set about developing his own space adventure reminiscent of the science-fiction movie serials he had watched as a child. »

Film Review: ‘Spark: A Space Tail’

14 April 2017 11:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Parents who make the sacrifice of watching “Spark: A Space Tail” with their children may be modestly amused by writer-director Aaron Wooley’s wink-wink allusions to “Star Wars,” “Starship Troopers,” and the “Transformers” franchise. But there’s nothing much else here to hold the interest of anyone old enough to travel to the multiplex alone. Indeed, it’s hard to imagine that even the least demanding of tykes will ask for a second sampling of this thoroughly second-rate animated feature, which has all the charm, and twice the volume, of a barking dog.

Most of the action, in want of a better term, unfolds on Bana, a simian-dominated planet that is conquered, and partially destroyed, by an evil and seriously height-challenged ape named Zhong (voiced by Alan C. Peterson). Thirteen years after Zhong does his dirty work with the aid of a fearsome whatzit called a Space Kraken, Spark (Jace Norman »

Dead And Buried Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah

19 March 2017 8:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You can try to kill me, Dan. But you can’t. You can only make me dead. ”

Dead And Buried screens Midnights this weekend (March 24th and 25th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of  Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series.

1981 was a stellar year for horror films! Just ask Andy Triefenbach, who programs at Late Night Grindhouse midnight series. The Evil Dead, The Burning, My Bloody Valentine, The Beyond, House By The Cemetary, and Nightmare have all played midnights at the Late Night Grindhouse monthly film series in recent years and they all celebrate their 36th anniversary in 2017. Dead And Buried, co-written by St. Louis native Dan O’Bannon (two years after he co-wrote Alien and 3 years before he wrote and directed Return Of The Living Dead – another Lngh fave) may not be as well-known as those shockers, »

‘Homeland’ Recap: Paranoia Abounds in Episode 8, ‘Alt.Truth’

12 March 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Alt.Truth” ranks as the most paranoid episode of “Homeland” since Nicholas Brody was finally outed as a fellow traveler of terrorists in season one.

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen the March 12 episode of “Homeland.”

Simply put, the eighth installment is the best hour of “Homeland’s” sixth season so far. It has everything that “Homeland” does best — capers, cat-and-mouse chases, the formation of unholy alliances, snappy banter about ideological dilemmas, whiplash-inducing plot twists, and a surfeit of grim-face Saul and quiver-face Carrie. By the end, the bell tolls for a well-loved character. And there’s a touch of “Flash Gordon” in the closing seconds that is forgivable because everything else that comes before is riveting.

“Alt.Truth” is sharply written by Patrick Harbinson, razor-sharply directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, and grounded by incredible work (as usual) from stars Claire Danes (Carrie Mathison), Mandy Patinkin (Saul Berenson) and Rupert Friend (Peter Quinn). The »
