Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Wally Wood Panel Recap

13 April 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

50 years ago, an artist named Wallace “Wally” Wood (or Woody to most people) changed Daredevil’s costume from his original yellow suit to the iconic red and black outfit he still wears to this day. (Even in the Daredevil Netflix show.) But Wally Wood did a lot more than redesign Daredevil and had a long career doing newspaper strips as well as horror and sci-fi books for EC Comics and humor for the immortal Mad. At East Coast Comicon, comic book artist and philanthropist J. David Spurlock, who co-founded the Wally Wood Scholarship Fund and co-wrote a biography of Wood, and veteran comics creators Larry Hama (G.I. Joe) and Bob Wiacek (Uncanny X-Men) swapped stories and chatted about Wood’s life, work, and legacy.

Larry Hama began the panel by saying he learned about Wally Wood during the mid-1960s through a friend at High School of Art and Design, »

Interview with Shawn Gabborin of Action Lab

5 April 2015 7:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wednesday marked the release of the new Puppet Master series from Action Lab Entertainment. Puppet Master is based on the horror film series of the same name from Charles Band and production studio Full Moon Entertainment. Band’s film and Action Lab’s series focus on a group of puppets created by the mysterious Toulon and brought to life with an ancient Egyptian spell. Action Lab’s release marks the first Puppet Master comic since Eternity Comics’ mini-series in 1990. The new series is helmed by Action Lab founding member Shawn Gabborin, who you may remember from my earlier reviews of Snowed In and Victor Season.

I had an opportunity to talk with writer Shawn Gabborin this weekend at the fourth of his book signings. Gabborin was seated at a table inside New Dimension Comics when I walked in. After we shook hands and introduced ourselves, my first question for him was obvious. »

Written by Seth M Sherwood, the film will be directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, and is tipped for release in 2016.

Dorff most recently finished filming American Hero with Eddie Griffin and The Motel Life with Emile Hirsch and Dakota Fanning. »

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

30 March 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by »

Stephen Dorff To Play Texas Ranger In Leatherface

27 March 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The next romp into the Texan backwoods, where teenagers continue to venture and get chopped up, might be dropping the eye-catching ‘Chainsaw Massacre’ part of the title but it’s still got both. Leatherface, the next instalment in the decades-old franchise, comes from Millenium Entertainment and Lionsgate, with Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the duo behind the slasher masterpiece Inside on board to helm.

Of course, no blood-letting romp in Texas with power tools is complete without bodies! Bloody Disgusting now reports that Stephen Dorff (Blade) has entered talks to appear as Texas Ranger Hal Hartman. In the prequel, his character is described as “a lean, mean Texas Ranger who has a vendetta against the teen boy who grows up to become Leatherface.” Who that boy may be is another mystery that’s a part of the film’s twisty plot design.

Thus far, two actors have been cast as »

10 Actors Seeking a Comeback This Pilot Season

3 March 2015 10:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wesley SnipesIf this list were a competition, Wesley Snipes would win this hands-down: the "Blade" actor is lining up his first potential starring role since finishing up a three-year prison sentence (for tax fraud) in April 2013. After competing with (and ultimately losing to) Terrence Howard for the lead in Fox's smash hit "Empire" last year, Snipes has nailed down a starring role in the NBC drama pilot "Endgame." He stars opposite Philip Winchester ("Strike Back") in the Las Vegas-set thriller, which examines the convergence of crime, gambling and conspiracy in Sin City. It comes from "The Blacklist" executive producers John Davis and John Fox, and the description for Snipes' character, Johnson, reads as follows: "An unflappable guy with a dry sense of humor. Highly intelligent and analytical. Mysterious and unreadable." Once the star of the hottest vampire franchise around, Snipes is hoping "Endgame" is the path »

How Marvel went from bankruptcy to billions

12 February 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In less than 20 years, Marvel has risen from bankruptcy to multi-billion-dollar business. Ryan charts its rise and rise...

Just about every great comic book story has a darkest hour moment: a point in the tale where all seems lost. The heroes are on their knees, the city's a smouldering ruin and the villains are closing in for the kill. For Marvel, its darkest hour came in the winter of 1996.

A company that had grown in stature throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s thanks to the often stunning art and storytelling in such comics as Fantastic Four and The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel's financial success had reached a peak by the early 90s. But then a series of bursting financial bubbles and questionable business deals saw Marvel's stock value collapse; shares once worth $35.75 each in 1993 had sunk to $2.375 three years later. An ugly fight between a group of very rich investors followed, »

If you take a look at the top 100 all-time highest worldwide grossing movies, fifteen of them are either Marvel or DC comic adaptations. According to Box Office Mojo the third highest grossing film of all time is The Avengers (2012) at over a billion and a half dollars. Comics, it would seem, are major players in the world of entertainment.

Seventy-five years ago it was all very different. Comics were for children and were disregarded as both an entertainment medium and as an art form. Comics were disposable. Because of their ephemeral nature surviving early copies now trade hands for vast sums. »

The 100 Greatest Nintendo Games Pt. 1

31 January 2015 9:39 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nintendo celebrated its 125th Anniversary last year, with the company founded on 23rd September 1889 in Kyoto, where its headquarters remain. The company has had an extraordinary history, originally producing handmade handful playing cards and several small niche businesses (including a cab service and luxury hotels), but since 1977, Nintendo has grown into one of the world’s most prolific and beloved video game makers.

Nintendo became a household name outside of Japan in 1985 with the release of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The best-selling gaming console of its time, the Nes helped revitalize the Us video game industry following the video game crash of 1983. Nintendo has since been the most enduring and influential company in the medium and its consoles, branding and innovative game achievements have given the company a momentous status in popular culture. And so 30 years after the Nes hit North American shores, we’ve decided to compile a list »

Reality Check: Ghost in the Shell Will Be Another Generic Action Movie

7 January 2015 6:26 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For those excited for a robust, live-action version of Ghost in the Shell, I’ve got some bad news for you. The announcement of Scarlett Johannson signing on to star is a sign that this thing is a bit more real than it was before, but it’s destined to look a lot more like Aeon Flux than Blade Runner, and there’s a simple reason for that. Saying, “I want to make a live-action version of Ghost in the Shell” is a lot like saying, “I want to make The Matrix.” It requires an unbelievable cocktail of skill, sci-fi understanding, nuance, innovation and luck. The filmmakers involved would need to be at the top of their game as well as be dedicated to focusing on existential issues even after the bullet casings hit the floor. Instead, we’re getting Avi Arad and Steven Paul. Arad has been involved in the superhero resurgence since EPing Blade in »
