Blu-ray Review – I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016)

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I Am Not a Serial Killer, 2016.

Directed by Billy O’Brien.

Starring Christopher Lloyd, Laura Fraser, Max Records, Karl Geary, Matt Roy, and Molly Gearen.

Synopsis:

A sociopathic teenager discovers that his elderly neighbour may have something to do with a spate of murders.

I Am Not a Serial Killer begins in a not-too-dissimilar way to Tom Holland’s Fright Night in that a small town is being plagued by brutal killings and a teenage boy with a keen interest in such things discovers that one of his neighbours may be responsible. However, the filmmakers don’t make things easy when it comes to defining who is ‘good’ and who is ‘bad’ and the serial killer of the title could refer to either one of the two main characters.

The boy in question is John Wayne Cleaver (the brilliantly named Max Records from Where the Wild Things Are) and his »

Idw Brings Funko To Comics This May

18 February 2017 9:29 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By now, you’ve no doubt seen Funko Pop! Vinyls at retailers – most likely Hot Topic, where they dominate a good chunk of floor or wall space – and possibly own one yourself, or at least know somebody who can’t get enough of the cutesy interpretations of pop culture characters.

This May, thanks to publisher Idw, Funko are set to take the leap into comics as part of “Funko Universe Month.” At first, I was wondering if they’d have to create original characters before getting the full details that came with the announcement, but luckily, they’re taking full advantage of some of the many popular franchises Idw has license to.

As for which properties will get the treatment, readers can look forward to five one-shots that will give some of their favorite characters the small body, big head makeover: Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The X-Files, Strawberry Shortcake and Judge Dredd. »

Moulin Rouge Secret Cinema – the delights of Montmartre comes to the capital.

'From the Balcony' ('Fra balkongen'): Film Review | Berlin 2017

15 February 2017 4:10 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In Norwegian filmmaker Ole Giaever’s From the Balcony, the actor-director spends a lot of time sitting on his, well, balcony, contemplating both the view and his life. Whether he’s catching the last warm rays of the fall, braving the snow in winter or enjoying the first moments of spring, he can always be found right there, accompanied by a hot cup of tea in a Back to the Future mug. The type of cup might seem like a trivial detail, but a more circuitous view of history actually feels quite appropriate here, as From the Balcony ponders nothing less than »

The Leftovers: brave, beautiful television drama

Jamie Andrew Feb 16, 2017

HBO's The Leftovers returns for its third and final season this April. Here's why it deserves your time...

I’d like you to stick with me, fellow geeks, because this word-train you’ve boarded is taking a rather circuitous route to its final destination. First stop, the Wild West. Or a robotic simulation of it at least.

Hot Wheels Dlc Announced For Rocket League, Adds Two New Cars

9 February 2017 7:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Psyonix has announced some new Dlc for its popular car soccer title Rocket League today, and it’s another crossover collaboration. This one is a little different, however, as there’s no film license in sight. We’ve already seen the likes of the iconic DeLorean from Back to the Future and the Batmobile be introduced to the title, but how about some racers based on toys? On February 21, two new cars based on the Hot Wheels line of die-cast toy cars will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC for a modest $1.99, which also includes a set of exclusive wheel and decals.

Twin Mill III and Bone Shaker are the two new rides included in the bite-sized add-on, both of which you can see in the trailer above, but if you’re not sold on dropping any more cash on Rocket League than you already have, Psyonix says »

Films that led to other films being cancelled

9 February 2017 2:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 15, 2017

Had Tomorrowland been a hit, we might have had a Tron sequel. We look at movies whose fate had a knock-on effect on other films...

You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback.  In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.

The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »

Film Review: ‘Duckweed’

7 February 2017 4:41 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The biggest surprise about “Duckweed,” the sophomore feature written and directed by China’s superstar writer-blogger Han Han, is its absolute predictability. A dramedy in which a car racer time-travels to the late ’90s and becomes his estranged father’s partner-in-crime, the film features plot turns and emotional arcs that are all easy to anticipate. What the movie does reflect is how China is moving ahead so fast that millennials are already glancing at the not-so-distant past and its values with jaded amusement and nostalgia. More relaxed and carefree than any of the Lunar New Year blockbusters jostling for the holiday crowd, the film is sprinkled with witty grace notes and is crowd-pleasing without being too ingratiating or idiotic.

Those who admire Han’s pithy prose or the sublime poetry of his debut feature “The Continent” may feel he’s punching below his weight here, but the absence of intellectual »

The 6 greatest ever Batmobiles

7 February 2017 3:36 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Feb 20, 2017

Batman's wheels are almost as iconic as he is. But which of his Batmobiles is the finest?

Robin: “I want a car. Chicks dig the car.”

Batman: “This is why Superman works alone.”

Man, how we marvelled at the Dark Knight as he responded to Robin’s whinging about wanting wheels of his own in 1997’s Batman & Robin. Yes it was the opening scene of the movie and true, we’d already experienced a higher latex-clad buttocks to screen time ratio than in your average imported specialist German exotica but still, that line… it hinted at the beginnings of a shared universe where Batman and Superman might one day occupy the same screen, sending us into geeky raptures of possibility-flavoured wonderment.

Looking back at the garish daftness that followed, that first minute of the film was probably the best bit. We’d wait another 19years, »

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »

Ellen Ripley, Alien, and the rise of the modern Ripleys

5 February 2017 7:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jennifer Leigh Williamson Feb 16, 2017

How Star Wars, Rogue One, Stranger Things and more are marking the rise of a new wave of Ripleys...

“Is that the only flamethrower?”

Most of us have long heard the fun fact that the role of Ellen Ripley in Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece Alien was originally written for a man. Like Eric Stoltz filming for four weeks as Marty in Back To The Future, it's one of those fun Hollywood tidbits that seems ridiculous now as Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley has become one of the greatest heroes in movie history.

Going on to star in four (rumoured to soon be five) Alien movies, Weaver has been nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA for her portrayal of this iconic character and its easy to see why. In a world of damsels, love interests and totty, Ripley is a woman: a well rounded, intelligent, confident, »

Four Different Versions of Back To the Future’s Hill Valley Simultaneously

4 February 2017 6:46 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Back to the Future will always go down as one of the more classic movie franchises.  Despire the glaring amount of plot holes the movie had, audiences loved all three movies.  While the first and second installments by far outweighed the third, the third still held its own.   With regard to the movies themselves, all of the movies are set in the fictional “Hill Valley.”  And in each film we get to see Hill Valley in a different time period.  In the first movie it’s the 1950s.  In the second film, Hill Valley turns into a 21st century city as

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Hot Potato Soup

31 January 2017 9:53 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There are guest stars, and then there is Patton Oswalt. And then, there is Patton Oswalt. And more Patton Oswalt

On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 12, Oswalt's Agent Koenig was back. As was Agent Koenig. And Agent Koenig. And – surprise! – Agent Koenig's sassy sister, L.T., otherwise known as "the original Koenig."  Didn't see that one coming, did you?

Considering that "android" was always the most obvious explanation as for why there appeared to be an army of Agent Koenigs (clones being the other option regularly debated by fans), it was inevitable that Koenig and Kompany would resurface during the Lmd storyline. 

The opening scene, featuring Oswalt quoting iconic lines from Back to the Future and Star Wars while wheeling around an arcade on a hoverboard, was an ideal way to be reintroduced to the character, who always brings a welcome dose of levity to S.H.I.E.L. »

6 Potential Projects That Telltale Could Tackle Next

31 January 2017 11:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since The Walking Dead, Telltale Games has taken a series of existing IPs and adapted them into vastly interesting multi-episode experiences. From Batman to Back to the Future, they’ve consistently impressed. Through all of these adaptations, they’ve proven themselves to be both excellent storytellers and world-builders. With their next project being Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s exciting to think about what may come after that.

Considering the wide array of IPs that could match well with the Telltale format, it’s difficult to narrow it down. However, with this list, we believe that each of these would be an excellent next step in their studio’s future. In terms of how these picks were decided, it really came down to three simple criteria:

Is the world interesting enough to explore thoroughly? Are there fresh and original stories available to tell? Can it work as »

Anyone who is a fan of the Back the Future trilogy knows that there are plenty of visual and narrative parallels shared between the three films.
