If you're already obsessed with Chris Pratt, then get ready for the impossible to happen, because your crush is about to be amped up a notch. On Tuesday, the actor took to Instagram to deliver some behind-the-scenes commentary about his recent InStyle photo shoot, where he was named September's Man of Style. He captioned a handsome black-and-white photo of himself: "Full disclosure I did not pick out any of the clothes which is kinda funny for a guy who is called the 'man of style' »

Full Disclosure: I know Chris Myers but I don't Know Chris Myers. A few months back we met sitting across from each other at a play by Jackie Sibblies Drury, a difficult but phenomal playwright who had made a piece for an audience of under 50. We sat rapt, both moving and responding like people who watch things with their full bodies. After the play I looked at him and he looked at me and we knew we were kindred spirits. When he left, my friend turned to me and was like, "You do know he's about to be the biggest deal right?" Not knowing this beforehand, I began following his work, seeing that he was the lead in two plays by the seminal young...

“Someone has just thrown Lois Lane from an airplane and she’s plummeting Earthward. But today is Humtyglumf Day, the most sacred day in the Kryptonian calendar – a day on which it is absolutely forbidden to rescue falling females. But if I do nothing, in about a nanosecond Lois will squish…”
Full disclosure: I don’t really know if Kryptonians celebrate Humptyglumf Day. On the other hand, I don’t really know if they don’t. Superman seems to have a lot of information about his shattered home world – he seems to knows a lot more about Krypton than I know about, oh…McCausland Avenue where, I have it on reliable authority, I spend the first four years or so of my life. But nothing about politics or religion.
The profit motive partly explains this. I’m thinking of one of my favorite novelists, now deceased. His name was »

At San Diego Comic-Con, I had the opportunity to speak to several members of the cast and crew of some of my favorite shows. At the press room for Once Upon A Time, I was able to speak with series stars Lana Parrilla (Regina Mills) and Jared Gilmore (Henry Mills) about what’s coming up next in Season 6. Full disclosure: This was my first San Diego Comic-Con, and I really did pretty well in terms of being starstruck and keeping my cool. I am, however, a really big fan of Lana Parrilla, and it got the better of me. One of my

I’ve been back from my Oregon vacation for a couple of weeks now, and though the getaway was a good and necessary one, I’m still in the process of mentally unpacking from a week and a half of relaxing and thinking mostly only about things I wanted to think about. (I also discovered a blackberry cider brewed in the region, the source of a specific sort of relaxation that I’m still finding myself pining for.) It hasn’t helped that our time off and immediate time back coincided with the bombast and general insanity of the Republic National Convention, followed immediately by the disarray and sense of restored hope that bookended the Democrats’ week-long party. The extremity of emotions engendered by those two events, coupled with a profoundly unsettling worry over the base level of our current political discourse and where it may lead this country, hasn »

Hello again, dear readers. This week sees the release of Suicide Squad, the latest DC Comics film adaptation. In the meantime, the latest Trailer Trashin’ is my quick take on some of the major movie trailers to come out of the recent San Diego Comic-Con.
Premise: After Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the world’s top neurosurgeon, is injured in a car accident that ruins his career, he sets out on a journey of healing, where he encounters the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), who becomes Strange’s mentor in the mystic arts.
My take: After the huge superhero brawl of Captain America: Civil War earlier this summer, the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe takes things in a very different direction. This is an exposition-heavy trailer, laying out the basics of who Doctor Strange is and the nature of his powers to help general audiences get on-board with »

Full disclosure: I am a DC fan, and I loved both Man Of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice – while recognizing that they are flawed endeavours. I am also very much looking forward to seeing Suicide Squad, despite the enormous wave of negative reviews the movie has received in the past 48 hours. It seems this objective and optimistic stance may be surprising to some – particularly those who have taken it upon themselves to launch a petition to demand the closure of the website Rotten Tomatoes, based on the suggestion that it promotes some kind of bias against DC movies.
This ridiculous turn of events is absurd for several reasons. Firstly – and as the petition itself states – such a document will not lead to the closure of Rotten Tomatoes, so it is, by its own admission, pointless. »

Full disclosure, Suicide Squad was among my top three most anticipated movies of the year. Not just the summer -- the whole year. It was a risky movie dropped into a year full of riskier comic book films meant to help reinvent a genre that's trying to remain on top when it comes to box office and fan anticipation. Here was this movie that was solely about the villains, and not the heroes. Toss in an exciting, diverse cast and a few deliciously badass trailers, and it's no wonder Suicide Squad is poised to break all kinds of box office records when it hits theaters this week. But is it any good? Well... ultimately that'll be for you to decide, but here are some of the film's pros and cons to get the conversation started. Pro: A terrific...

When it comes to Jason Bourne, audiences accept no substitutes.
They want Matt Damon crushing bones and uncovering government conspiracies. No other tough guys will do. It’s also likely that for Damon to agree to put his body through the car crashes, hand-to-hand fight sequences, and Parkour-heavy chase scenes that define the Bourne series, he will continue to demand that Paul Greengrass be orchestrating the on-screen mayhem from behind the camera.
That gives Damon a massive amount of clout when and if Universal decides to continue to be in the Bourne game. For “Jason Bourne,” the latest installment in the amnesiac spy saga, the studio shelled out a reported $26 million for the actor’s services. Given that the »

You may have seen the trailer for The Killer Robots! Crash and Burn on this very site a few months back. The 101 minute feature is slated to drop on iTunes and Google Play this Friday, July 15th. Full disclosure - I did direct this film and wish to take this opportunity to introduce it to the world. It is a micro-budget sci-fi epic about a universe of warring robots and mechanical monsters. A lot of time, duct tape and recyclables went into the making of the movie and it just recently won for Best Fantasy at the Supercon Geek Film Festival. Check out the 42 second spot below for a sample....

Full disclosure: I’ve never completely understood the mechanics or appeal of Monster Hunter. I’ve sampled a few of the games before — my brother’s fanatical devotion to Tri encouraged me to give that title, Freedom Unite and the two Ultimate games on 3Ds a shot — but none of them have quite clicked with me. That pattern unfortunately continues with Monster Hunter Generations, but don’t fret; after spending so much time with it, I can’t possibly say my personal lack of interest has anything to do with the clear amount of polish and love put into this series. At the very least, I’ve now got a good idea why so many people line up around the block every time a new one comes out — and while those diehards will probably love a lot of the new stuff that Capcom’s cooked up this time around, »

Last time, we took a look at the career of actor-writer-director Albert Brooks. This week’s subject is another unlikely badass, but one who’s had an enviable career as a character actor and is back on the big-screen in this week’s Independence Day: Resurgence... Bill Pullman Full disclosure - I visited the set of Independence Day: Resurgence last year, where I not only... Read More »

Filmmaker and Shock writer talks about bizarre short horror film Glimpse. Full disclosure: I’ve known filmmaker and writer John Nicol more than half my life. He writes for this very site and in other outlets I oversee. We went to film school together. The latter fact is why his latest effort, the surreal and abrasive…

Originally called Summer Camp, the folks at Gun Media scored the Friday the 13th license and got involvement from Kane Hodder, Sean S. Cunningham and even bring back composer Harry Manfredini. They evolved their game from the ground up into Friday the 13th: The Game.
Full disclosure, I backed this game on Kickstarter. I dig the franchise quite a bit, like most of you do, so it was a no-brainer for me. I received an email last night stating that they would live-stream some Early Alpha gameplay footage. However, as someone who works a day job, it was past my bedtime for a Sunday night. Luckily, it looks like Gun Media has uploaded the footage on their YouTube channel. Check it out below:
Ok, excuse me for a second…
Seriously, you can tell that this was made with love and by people who have a genuine love for the franchise. While I would love a new entry, this will tide us over (if not suppress our need for another film). Everything about the clip above just makes me so damn happy. The only thing that I was personally upset about is not knowing (which was a fault of my own) about voting for the different looks of Jason and what won (Jason’s look from Jason Goes to Hell and Jason Takes Manhattan were among the 3 extra looks). Manfredini’s score is so effectively used in this clip along with Pamela Voorhees’ motivational taunts for Jason to “hunt them down”. I’m taking a couple of days off work when this comes out!
If you missed out on the Kickstarter, you can still take part in the Slasher Backer kit. Via the link provided, you can pre-order the game still along with an art book or the soundtrack or some exclusive Dlc clothing packs! If you’re a fan of the franchise and haven’t helped these fine folks out, do so…Now!

USA’s “Mr. Robot” may not necessarily fall under the normal Bloody-Disgusting coverage umbrella as it’s not horror. But from what I hear (Full disclosure: I haven’t seen the show), it’s a tense thriller with stellar acting and an engaging storyline that has gone on to receive critical acclaim. One aspect that has garnered much appreciation […] »
Full disclosure time: the first trailer for Blake Lively's The Shallows was a bit underwhelming. Between a vague tagline that just didn't sound enticing, as well as the extremely limited look at what was going on, the film wasn't selling itself all that well. However, this final trailer more than makes up for that, as it provides the ominous atmosphere the teaser should have. You can watch for yourself below. Our latest look at The Shallows comes directly from Sony Pictures themselves, as they've released this short, yet effective trailer through their official YouTube channel. Clocking in at only 23 seconds more than the previously mentioned trailer, this look at the summer survival film basically encapsulates what looks like the first act of the film. Blake Lively goes to the beach, prepares herself for a fun day of surfing, and eventually engages in said surfing, until a jerk of a »
The original plan was a little different. When I saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, I talked to Paramount about doing an interview with Dave Green, the director of the film. They had a great idea, though, and proposed having Dave visit the new Woven studios to play action figures with Toshi and Allen, who had a day off of school. It would have been very apt, and while it didn’t come together, it was on my mind when I ended up sitting down with Dave myself. Full disclosure up front: Dave and I are represented by the same manager. I forgot that until I got an e-mail from my manager after my review went up. Regardless, I like Dave’s work on both of the films he’s made now, and I opened the interview by paying him a very high compliment. It’s been »

Full Disclosure: I grew up a product of the 1980s and 1990s, which means I was a big fan of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books from Eastman & Laird, the original cartoon, and the first batch of live action Turtles flicks. I still have fond memories of riding my bike to the Fox Village Theater to see the original live action flick multiple times. Hell, I even had the movie novelization and soundtrack.
If the above disclosure describes you in way or the other, then Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows was made with you in mind. It essentially feels like an almost two-hour apology to the hardcore fans of the series. As the movie runs along, tonally it felt like a live-action adaptation of a four-part episode of the original cartoon. In a sense, Out of the Shadows does for Ninja Turtles what G.I. Joe: Retaliation »

The 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday, June 1st, and this year’s Nightfall lineup looks to be yet another strong selection of genre films set to thrill festival-goers night after night.
For those of you in the southern California area, the 2016 Laff runs through Thursday, June 9th and is calling the ArcLight Culver City Cinema home this year. Here’s a look at what we’re anticipating once the Laff begins later this week, and for more information on the festival, please visit:
Full disclosure: Abattoir was edited by my significant other, so I am certainly biased, but my enthusiasm for the film comes from my excitement to see Bousman return to the hardboiled world of horror after working on The Devil’s Carnival musicals and his comedy-infused segment in last year’s Tales of Halloween anthology. »

For most, That Thing You Do! is a sweet musical comedy drama starring and directed by Tom Hanks about a gang of guys who make it big with a one hit wonder and then slowly fall apart. It's got heartbreak, but it’s also pretty fun, as most Tom Hanks romps are…unless you consider the disgusting thing Ethan Embry just bravely revealed he did while filming. I don’t think I could put it into words, so I’ll just let this Tweet from Embry speak for itself. Full disclosure: The day we shot this I shat myself on camera while playing bass cause my pet duck gave me dysentery https://t.co/fsRxiV9dVd — Ethan Embry (@EmbryEthan) May 27, 2016 Hopefully he was wearing his brown pants. Talk about that thing you do-do (last one, I promise). Okay, a couple »
