Wamg Interview: Marlon Wayans – Star and Writer of A Haunted House 2

14 April 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

10 of the Worst Superhero Movie Directors

13 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Even as we enter what seems to be the golden age of the superhero movie, there are still more bad comic book movies than good ones when looking over a list of what’s been released in the past 30 years or so. Why? Well, some may blame a poor choice of actor and others may point to a badly written script, but a lot of issues ultimately come down to the choice of director.

Regardless of whether it’s an obvious lack of understanding when it comes to how the source material should be handled during the transition to live-action or a complete inability to handle action sequences as the larger than life superheroes come to blows with their foes, more than one director has ultimately ruined what could and should have otherwise been a great movie.

We’ve narrowed that list down to ten of the worst superhero movie directors. »

The Ten Best Captain America Artists (Part 1)

1 April 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Captain America is one of the most famous and important superheroes in the Marvel Universe. He is also the oldest Marvel hero to consistently have his own comic as he was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941. Beginning as a figure of anti-German and Japanese propaganda, Captain America and his civilian identity evolved into a man out of time, and one who was filled with great guilt because of the death of his partner Bucky Barnes. He went from wholeheartedly supporting the United States’ policy to refusing to wear the stars and stripes when the president himself was at the center of a conspiracy to hunt him down and kill him. He has fought and been betrayed by old friends and lovers, but Captain America still act as the moral center of the Marvel Universe, and the hero everyone from Spider-Man to The Punisher and Wolverine look up to and respect. »

Batman '66 Preview: Joker and Catwoman Bring Double Trouble to Gotham

1 April 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Batman and Robin are really going to need to load up their utility belts this time. A new story in DC Comics' popular Batman '66 digital series — based on the beloved Adam West TV series — spotlights two of the Dyanamic Duo's most iconic villains.

"For our latest story, artist Jonathan Case who kicked off the series, is returning for another big three-parter where The Joker and Catwoman bust out of confinement and turn Gotham City upside down," says series writer Jeff Parker. "We also see several other regular villains from the series in part one, where the Arkham Institute hosts a talent show featuring their criminal patients! Joker and Catwoman have a scheme to literally mess with everybody's minds."

Batman, James Bond writer Lorenzo Semple Jr dies, aged 91

28 March 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hollywood screenwriter Lorenzo Semple Jr has died, aged 91.

Semple is perhaps best known for playing a key role in developing the 1960s live-action Batman TV series, which starred Adam West and Burt Ward as the Dynamic Duo.

The writer played a key role in the first season of Batman as an executive story editor, in addition to penning the initial four episodes.

He also wrote the 1966 big-screen spinoff, which saw Batman and Robin taking on classic villains The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler and Catwoman.

Semple went on to find success as a Hollywood screenwriter, with his credits including The Parallax View, Flash Gordon and Three Days of the Condor.

He also was responsible for the non-Eon Productions James Bond movie Never Say Never Again, which had Sean Connery reprise his role as 007.

His daughter Maria Semple told The Wrap that the writer died earlier today (March 28). »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Screenwriter Andre Nemec Addresses Fan Concerns

27 March 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Many fans have been extremely worried about the Jonathan Liebesman directed, Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film -- and can you blame them? We've had rumors and conformed details aplenty that make this movie sound like it could turn out to be the next Batman and Robin. Today we received our first trailer, and that didn't really do much to warm up opinions. Comingsoon got an exclusive interview with Tmnt's screenwriter Andre Nemec, in which he reassures that it will be enjoyed by fans, and while making it a feast for action lovers, he states that it will be kid-friendly as well. Nemec also talked about the character's origins, and much more! He started off talking about the film's tone, saying: "The tone was a interesting question as far as how dark we wanted it to be. It’s all in the conflict between the characters. That was the driving principle. »

Person of Interest: 5 reasons you should watch Jim Caviezel thriller

27 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Person of Interest resumes its second season after a hiatus on Channel 5 in the UK tonight (March 27), while it continues to thrill audiences across the pond on CBS in its third run.

If you haven't managed to catch Jim Caviezel's fast-paced action drama yet, Digital Spy has selected five reasons you should tune in or binge on its first season.

1. Jim Caviezel kicks ass

While Kiefer Sutherland may be returning in 24: Live Another Day, there had been a Jack Bauer-shaped hole in the TV tough guys world. This was soon filled by Caviezel, who may surprise you at how awesomely hard he is as John Reese, a former CIA officer who is recruited by a billionaire tech wiz to prevent violent crimes in New York. Caviezel plays it stoic throughout, and is perfect in the role of someone who is damaged but wants to remain on the side of good. »

10 Major 2014 Films That Will Probably Kill Their Franchise

27 March 2014 12:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

Aside from forcing expensive technical advancements on consumers (3D, 48fps, Matthew McConaughey’s acting ability), there’s nothing Hollywood loves more than franchises.

And it’s easy to understand why. For all their rallying against how unimaginative the film industry is, audiences never seem happier than with the safety of a familiar story. The general thinking to be why chance your hard earned cash on some unknown when there’s another Expendables to see; the first two may be rubbish, but at least we know what we’re getting. It may be stifling when every other release feels like it’s a sequel, but it’s yet to stop the box office ticking over.

It wasn’t that long ago when sequels were regarded very differently. Rather than bigger and hopefully better, it was cheaper and hopefully not that much worse. Film series didn’t escalate to massive payoffs, »

9 Beloved Films With Boring Scenes That Everybody Ignores

25 March 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

There’s few things a movie can do worse than be boring. If something is an abomination to the cinematic art at least that warrants a good rant later on. A boring film subdues you by draining you of all ability to be angry.

This differentiation is where the whole notion of “so bad it’s good” films comes from. Of course no film really goes so deep into the bowels of hell and comes out the other end a masterpiece; no matter how hard cine-hipsters may try to be different and claim otherwise, Batman And Robin is objectively awful. But it is possible to derive some enjoyment from films like The Wicker Man or The Room thanks to their complete disregard for quality. They engage you, just as a great film would, only in a different, mildly irritating, way.

And that’s why boring films are worse; they »

Which Movie Would You Erase From History If You Had A Time Machine?

25 March 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Question Of The Day: What One Movie Would You Erase From History If You Had A Time Machine (And What Would The Consequences Be)?

All things considered, Batman and Robin might well be the worst movie of all time. Recall the visually jarring sets, the giddy, hyperactive performances, the onslaught of never-ending puns (oh, God – the puns!), and there’s enough awfulness inherent to every one of its putrid frames to argue a case that nothing – nothing – will ever be quite as bad. Because Batman and Robin, after all, was the movie that turned the Dark Knight into a certified joke – a smarmy, credit card-wielding jerk who cared less about avenging the deaths of his parents and more about partying down. Given its standing as the sequel that drew a close on Batman’s cinematic legacy, then, it seems like a no-brainer to wish it had never been made. »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 17th 2014

17 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

So as promised I watched the first episode of From Dusk Till Dawn the series and….pretty damn good actually. It starts off with a scene that will come to mean more as the series wears on and which calls back to the second straight to DVD From Dusk Till Dawn sequel Hangman’s Daughter which dealt with the origins of Salma Hayek’s Santanico Pandemonium head vampire character. After this we are back in sort of familiar territory with Don Johnson playing a suitably grizzled and weary Texas Ranger Earl McGraw on the look out for the Gecko Brothers who are on the lam and headed for Mexico.

Basically when it comes down to it, From Dusk Till Dawn is like a faithful adaptation of the original novel that the first film was based on if that were the case and it wasn’t an early Tarantino script. So »

10 Worst WWE Pairings Ever

11 March 2014 2:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Batman and Robin, Laurel and Hardy, Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza. Some people just go together. Or, in the wrestling world: Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth, The Four Horsemen and The Outsiders. These are among of the most classic pairings in history. When you think of someone like Randy Savage, you can’t help but think of his lovely valet. When you think of Arn Anderson, you’ll naturally think of Flair.

But when you think of The Undertaker do you automatically think of his ex-wife Sara? When you talk about Scott Steiner does Stacy Keibler naturally follow next in the conversation? Some people have no business being together in wrestling. This is usually due to the fact that they have no chemistry. It’s two people that are forced to team up, but only end up being detrimental to each other’s careers.

Here, we take a look at 10 pairings of wrestlers, »

Marc Alan Fishman: Things Do Not Change; We Change

1 March 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Thank you, Thoreau. The winds of change are ah-blowin’ kiddos. Turn that dial (and yeah I know kids… that term makes no sense to you) to NBC late night, and suddenly the land of Leno is now the field of Fallon. And where Jimmy once sat, now sits Seth. As internet pundits are quick to judge, I’ve been tickled pink at the complex barrage of arbitration that’s befallen the SNL alum already. Some good, some bad. But in nearly all cases? Passionate. Me personally? I’ll give them both the benefit of time. In his stint on ‘Late Night’, I thought Jimmy Fallon really came into his own. Taking that show to the “big leagues” has drawn itself plenty of criticism, and it brings me to my rant-n-rave this week: the outcries of the old who actively hate the new.

 

There comes a time, I assume, in all »

Kevin Conroy on voicing Batman for 23 years

26 February 2014 10:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 1991, Kevin Conroy landed the role of The Dark Knight for the classic Batman: The Animated Series, and while Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale have all hung up the cape and cowl since, he's still lending his voice to the role of the Caped Crusader in Warner's DC Universe Animated Original Movies line, not to mention the hugely popular Arkham video games. During a recent interview (via Cbm), Conroy has spoken about his time as Batman, during which he's established himself as the voice of Gotham's Dark Knight Detective:

"I had absolutely no expectation that this job would turn into what it became. I started recording it in 1991, and it went on the air on Fox in 1992 as a prime time series. Then over 23 years, it just evolved from Batman: The Animated Series to The Adventures of Batman and Robin to Justice League and then Batman Beyond. »

Batman movies in the 80s and 90s: the hero we deserved?

25 February 2014 8:05 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Rob Leane 26 Feb 2014 - 07:19

How do capes, cowls and cultural context intertwine in some of history’s more troublesome Batman movies?

Once upon a time on this site, we looked at Batman’s ability to offer social commentary to different cultural contexts; you can find that piece here. Through analysing the 1943 Batman serial, the 1960s Adam West TV show and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, we saw how the caped crusader had repeatedly held a mirror to his surrounding contextual issues.

In the 40s, the Bat was a government agent enlisted to bring down a newly-made Japanese villain. In the 60s, inspired by Warhol and Lichtenstein, he became a Pop Art icon, actually superseding the popularity of the comics and securing the character’s future. In The Dark Knight Christian Bale’s incarnation went to questionable lengths to bring down an unstoppable terrorist, reflecting the political scandals of the modern age. »

A New York Winter’s Tale (aka Winter’s Tale) review: cold in the city

20 February 2014 10:54 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A leaden, charmless movie that is unable to commit to its own fantasy. So implausible that even Colin Farrell’s own Irish accent sounds fake. I’m “biast” (pro): love Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of “magic realism”

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Thank you, Winter’s Tale movie — aka A New York Winter’s Tale in the U.K. in order that, I suspect, it not be confused with Shakespeare, which was never going to happen — for confirming what I’ve always felt about the weasel phrase “magic realism”: that it is a feeble, lazy attempt to dress up in literary pretensions an inability to fully commit to fantasy. This might not be true of the Mark Helprin novel this is based on; I haven’t read it »

Must Have Batman and Ghostbusters-Themed Slot Car Sets

19 February 2014 5:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Who didn’t have a slot car racing set growing up?! My brothers and I would spend hours building, rebuilding, and combining our sets. I don’t know how much “racing” we did, but we definitely did a lot of crashing and breaking. GeekAlerts recently posted two great sets that turn up the nostalgia meter even further. The sets put you “behind the wheel” of two of the most iconic cars in history, the Batmobile and the Ecto-1.

The first is a ‘60s Batman-themed set called Batman Pursuit of the Penguin Electronic Slot Car Racing Playset.

“This set includes 4 four-gear slot cars, a Gotham City backdrop, AC power pack, 2 variable speed controllers, support pillars, flagpoles, Batman and Robin stickers, and 18-feet of track with a loop. It features multiple layout options too.”

Available for $109.99 at Entertainment Earth and for $104.87 at Amazon

The second set is a Ghostbusters-themed set named Ghostbusters »
