Cleveland According to Movies and Television

19 July 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Our perception of the Forest City having only seen it on screen.

All this week, Cleveland, Ohio, is being overrun with politicians, their supporters, and protestors of their platforms as the Republican National Convention is being held at the Quicken Loans Arena through Thursday. To help get a better sense of this “Cleve-Land,” as Howard the Duck calls it, we’re looking to entertainment, specifically movies and television, for what it can tell us about this city. If there’s anything we miss or misunderstand, blame Hollywood.

Cleveland Rocks

It’s the Rock and Roll Capital of the World, home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so it’s not surprising that, to an outsider, Cleveland primarily looks like a city where music reigns. You could make a nice concert with all the fictional bands based there, including Cherry Bomb from Howard the Duck, The Barbusters from Light of Day, the »

This Week on Marvel Unlimited

5 July 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Print is a dying breed. Newspapers and magazines are seeing subscriber numbers dwindle in the wake of the digital revolution. Why should folks pay for a physical copy of a publication that may not survive the wrath of a poorly trained paperboy or a malicious mailman when they can get the same content on their mobile device?

Comic book companies, while still selling pretty consistently, are finding ways to adjust to the changing ways folks buy their products. Marvel Comics stands out with their Marvel Unlimited app. For $9.99 a month or $69 a year, subscribers have access to over 17,000 comics and counting. New comics hit every Monday. Comics that are on sale at your local comic book store today will hit Unlimited about six months after they hit shelves. Marvel Unlimited is a great tool for folks that want to dive into the Marvel Universe, yet are hesitant due to not knowing where to start reading. »

Nicolas Cage: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

4 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 5, 2016

We dig through the ten recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Can we find a gem in there?

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical – version of love prevailed over boring old steadfast responsibility.

She would watch Dirty Dancing three or four times in a day, rewinding the ending relentlessly and bawling her eyes out. A VHS of Baby Boom was worn down until the tape resembled a type of grey, flimsy nylon. I hesitate to imagine what she was projecting with repeated viewings of Overboard, »

Is This Why the Original Ghostbusters Don't Exist in the Reboot?

25 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new TV spot for the Ghostbusters reboot debuted last week that had certain corners of the fan community raising their eyebrow. And it's very strange that it is included in the marketing materials at all. But it's been cause for alarm for some people. And it's calling into question various aspects of this franchise restarter from director Paul Feig and Sony Pictures. The footage has Melissa McCarthy's Abby Yates cracking wise to Toby Huss' Officer Stevenson about the 1990 movie Ghost. Now, some fans are clinging to a new theory that this may prove the original Ghostbusters still exist in this rebooted world, and that it all ties into a phenomenon known as 'The Mandela Effect'.

'The Mandela Effect' is a very real thing, in so much as certain individuals truly believe that the conspiracy exists. And yes, it's what some might consider a wackadoo conspiracy theory. Whether »

Lea Thompson featured on Howard the Duck #9 variant cover

10 June 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having made a cameo as herself the the conclusion of issue #8, Hollywood star Lea Thompson graces Joe Quinones’ variant cover for Howard the Duck #9, some thirty years after appearing in the George Lucas-produced movie as Howard’s love interest Beverly.

The issue, which goes on sale on July 9th, sees Thompson hiring Howard to help her investigate why she has been losing amounts of time over the years, and the answer to the mystery ties in to her appearance in the 1986 movie.

Lea Thompson returns to Howard the Duck

30 years after appearing in the Howard The Duck film, Lea Thompson is making a return appearance to his world...

"I can make it here in Hunger City, nothing's gonna stop me. I'll know I'll survive."

Those lyrics from Cherry Bomb's "Hunger City" from the Howard The Duck soundtrack have proven to be quite prophetic in the three decades since the infamous megabomb first hit theaters. As someone who was there on opening day and has enjoyed seeing the transition that the movie has made from cliched punchline to cult hit, there's more than a little bit of vindication that I, an outsider, feel about the flick's reversal of fortune. So I can only imagine the daffy trip that Lea Thompson must look back at the Howard The Duck experience as.

Over the years, Thompson has regularly discussed the film without any real shame or snark. It was a bomb for sure, »

The Good That Secretly Came Out Of Howard The Duck

8 June 2016 1:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Few comic book movies have attained a level of notoriety achieved by Howard the Duck. Released during the very infancy of the entire genre, the 1986 film has widely been regarded as one of the worst comic book movies ever committed to celluloid. However, not everything about the movie is a total disaster. In fact, the failure of Howard the Duck ultimately led to one actress’ involvement in a much better, more iconic movie.   During a recent interview with THR, actress Lea Thompson revealed that the failure of Howard the Duck is what ultimately drove her to take a role in the 1987 classic, Some Kind of Wonderful. She explained: I had to get on another movie. I wouldn’t have done the movie if Howard wasn’t such as bomb. … Things that seemed bad had turned out to be good in the end. It was a »

Comic Book Review: Black Widow #3

15 May 2016 8:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

   Natasha Romanov is on the run from Shield. Tasked with retrieving an item from the deadly Red Room in Russia from a man calling himself Weeping Lion, she battles through her enemies as well as her memories to retrieve the object he wants. But all is not what it seems…

   I love Black Widow. The character is so intriguing. Starting off as a Russian spy and turning her life around to be a long time member of Shield, she carries the weight of her past on her shoulders. The previous run by Nathan Edmondson and Phil Noto brought some of the best Black Widow stories I have read as well as producing some of the best art I have seen in comics. When their run came to an end I had to wonder how Marvel could top such a great run.

By now, you've probably heard that there's a new Marvel movie out; that's it's title — Captain America: Civil War — suggests some serious internal turmoil happening among the Traveling Wilburys of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a.k.a. the Avengers; that everybody short of Howard the Duck and your mom shows up to duke it out in the film's battle royale centerpiece; and that the nerdistrocracy (along with several prominent critics) has declared it the greatest superhero movie of all time.
