Dennis O’Neil’s Big Quandary

20 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy night. • Bettie Davis, All About Eve, 1950

Well, maybe it’ll be a bumpy night. I mean, I’m just beginning this column. How do I know how it’ll turn out? Do I look like a prophet to you?

Okay, onward! One confession, coming up:

I am not going to continue to duck, dodge, elude, evade, ditch or even do an end run around something I should have dealt with months ago.

But… where to begin?

Before beginning, let me present to you, at no extra charge, what I imagine my delinquency concerning the matter that may be the subject of this column – it’s still early – would look like, if it existed, which it doesn’t.

...a shard of mirror, jagged and pointed and sharp, thrust into my soul stuff…

Please don’t ask me to describe “soul stuff »

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of Mario Bava

14 July 2017 7:38 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Us one sheet for Black Sunday (Mario Bava, Italy, 1960).Earlier this week I featured Francine Spiegel and Dylan Haley’s terrific new poster for the re-release of Mario Bava’s Kill, Baby...Kill!, which has been playing at New York’s Quad Cinema in a 50th anniversary, 2K restoration. (Full disclosure: this week I started working for the film’s distributor, Kino Lorber, although I can take no credit for that design.) Today, the Quad follows up that run with Mondo Bava: 20-film retrospective of Bava’s films with many of the films on 35mm.Though Bava made over 30 films in various genres over the course of more than two decades, he is best known as perhaps the greatest stylist in horror, the maestro of the macabre. The posters for his horror films may not always convey Bava’s sense of style (notable exceptions being the French posters »

Watch: The Discovery Channel Unveils A Scary New Reality Show – All in the Dark!

13 July 2017 8:26 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

You’ve got to hand it to the Discovery Channel.

The network has found yet another way to push people out of their comfort zones — and this one is terrifying.

The network is unveiling Darkness, a survival show that plunges participants into the pitch black. Inspired by sensory-deprivation training used by Nasa and Special Forces, the show is a grueling challenge of mental and physical survival.

Here’s how it goes down: three survivalists are trapped at different points inside underground cave systems for up to six days. Their goal is to find each other and then find their way out of the cave. »

Joe Corallo: United Against Hysteria

3 July 2017 6:15 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I didn’t think I was going to write about Howard Chaykin, Image Comics, and The Divided States of Hysteria. When the first controversy sparked up the beginning of last month I had already committed to an interview with a team working on a Kickstarter project for my column that followed said controversy. While people still talked about it some after I thought people had basically covered the scope of the issue and I wouldn’t have anything constructive to add.

Then this happened followed by this apology from Image Comics and Howard Chaykin. I tend to discuss these sort of occurrences in the comics community and I really haven’t lately so it’s time for me to get back to that.

Full disclosure: I have met Howard Chaykin before at a few conventions, got a Lois Lane sketch from him some years ago, and attended a panel »

In Defense Of: “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” (1997)

2 July 2017 2:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Full disclosure: Jurassic Park is my favorite movie. Always has been, always will be. I was born in 1989, and though I grew up on a steady cinematic diet of the usual staples like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, I was, essentially, late to the party. I wasn’t there in 1977 when the world was first taken back a long time ago to a galaxy far, far away. I wasn’t there in 1981 when audiences first met Indy, or in 1982 when a young boy became best friends with a stranded extraterrestrial, or in 1985 when Marty McFly traveled back to 1955. These were the types of stories I grew up on, love, and cherish, of course, but it wasn’t until 1993 that I had the chance to be present as a film became something else, transcending into a cultural event of its own.

Review: ‘Despicable Me 3’ Isn’t Genius, But it May Make You Laugh

30 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Full disclosure: I have seen neither Despicable Me nor Despicable Me 2, but the franchise’s third installment kind of makes me want to. Now let me set the record straight: Despicable Me 3 is no crowning achievement in animation. You’re not going to be wondering how they pulled off the effects. You’re certainly not going to break down in tears once the credits roll. Simply put, it probably won’t restore your faith in studio animation. But it may make you laugh.

Unlike so many of its peers, Despicable Me 3 is filled with clever humor that goes — if only a smidgen — deeper than your typical face-value gags and physical body humor that’s so present in a majority of today’s animated films. Steve Carell is mostly to thank for this, starring in the film as both ex-villain turned villain-catching agent, Gru, and quite hilariously, »

Dennis O’Neil: Sherlock and Theseus’s Paradox

29 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

So there’s this ancient Greek named Theseus who builds a ship. Over time the ship needs repairs and pieces of it have to be replaced and finally everything has been replaced. Not a single splinter of the original craft remains. Which brings us to what is known in some circles as Theseus’s Paradox. We ask: Is the ship our man Theseus ends with the same one that he built years earlier? Please remember that nothing of the original remains.

Want to push this a bit further before we introduce comics characters into the discourse? Okay, I’m a ratty rival of Theseus and I take every piece of what Theseus has built and use it to build my own ship. I add nothing, I simply reuse Theseus’s materials. And now the question becomes: Whose ship is this anyway, mine or Theseus’s? (Never mind that Theseus might be a big, »

What Does ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’s Box Office Performance Mean for the Franchise’s Future?

Full disclosure: I have not seen Transformers: The Last Knight. (I’m currently listening to the /Filmcast’s highly entertaining review of it.) But just because I haven’t seen the movie yet, that doesn’t preclude me from exploring its box office performance and attempting to draw some conclusions about where the Transformers franchise might go from here.

You Don't Have to Be a Basketball Fan to Appreciate Steph Curry's Good Looks

23 June 2017 11:53 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Full disclosure: I'm a diehard Cleveland Cavaliers fan. Fuller disclosure: despite how much I love the Cavs, I also have a deep appreciation for everything Stephen Curry has going on physically. Whether it's the full-on heart eyes he's always giving to wife Ayesha, how sweet he always is with his unbelievably adorable daughters, or his killer abs on display, Steph has a lot of good things going on. To top off how seemingly perfect his personal life is, he's also riding high in his professional life as well. He and the rest of the Golden State Warriors just won the NBA Championship over the Cavs and he is understandably celebrating in style - and also shirtless, which we are fully Ok with. People of the world, it's time to get on board with the sports, because athletes are seriously ripped, and we can't get enough. They work hard day in and day out to perfect their game and their bodies and are in ridiculous shape, all so we can stare and drool. Ok, so maybe it's all for the love of the sport, but athletes are also nice to look at. Don't believe me? These ridiculously attractive photos of Steph should absolutely change your mind and have you googling key basketball phrases so you can keep up when basketball season rolls around again later this year.

Insights: Should Espn Now Stand For E-Sports Network? There Are Worse Ideas.

16 June 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Here in the week of E3, the videogame industry’s biggest conference, it’s time to ask if e-sports has finally broken through after years of underground but massive growth. It’s also time to wonder if Disney bet on the wrong horse when it bought Maker Studios instead of Twitch three years ago.

Yes, I know. If you’re over the age of 35, e-sports can seem mystifying. You likely can’t imagine anyone sitting in front of a TV (or computer) watching someone else sitting in front of a computer playing a video game. But as I’ve always said, why is it different than sitting in front of a TV watching someone play games such as football, basketball or baseball?(Full disclosure: I played all three sports growing up and am a gamer, too.) Or for that matter, why are e-sports different than participating in a dance »

This Is Us: This Is TVLine Deciding to Not Obsess About Jack's Death

15 June 2017 8:09 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The quality of NBC’s This Is Us, which was far and away the best network drama of the past TV season, is at risk of being overshadowed by so, so much blathering about how, why and when Jack Pearson died. As such, TVLine has decided to cease playing any part in perpetuating that deafening deluge of speculation.

Daytime Divas Series Premiere Recap: Will You Return for a Second View-ing?

5 June 2017 7:58 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“What a s–t show!” Vanessa Williams’ character declares as the series premiere of VH1’s Daytime Divas reaches its dramatic conclusion. “And the most fun of I’ve had in years.”

PhotosMay Sweeps In Memoriam: 40+ Deaths From Supernatural, Scandal, Arrow and More — Which Loss Hit You Hardest?

Williams’ character may be referring to The Lunch Hour — a fictional daytime talk show not unlike, say, The View — but her words are just as relevant to Daytime Divas, itself. Monday’s series premiere, an hourlong parade of brawls, backstabs and bitchy one-liners, is a solid sampling of what the grade-a guilty pleasure has to offer. »

Will Danny Rand Discover Some Maturity In The Defenders?

22 May 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Netflix and Marvel's Iron Fist was a strange, frustrating show. The corporate business storyline was confusing and clunky (at best), while the season finale ended with a thud and lacked closure. However, the biggest and most obvious complaint I've heard was that Danny Rand, played by British actor Finn Jones, simply wasn't a very likeable character. He couldn't manage his anger, he was petulant, and his personality seemed to regress throughout the season.

And yet, the show definitely had its moments.

Buried within Iron Fist's considerable flaws was an interesting premise with lots of cool ideas to explore. But I still can't get my head around the Rand/Iron Fist character. Was the issue in the script, the direction, or the acting? Granted, each of the Netflix/Marvel shows have their share of warts (primarily the second halves of each season), but Iron Fist's problems were evident right »

‘Renowned Explorers’ & ‘The Emperor’s Challenge Dlc’ Review (PC)

22 May 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Full disclosure: I’ve enjoyed my time with Renowned Explorers much more than I thought that I would. This charming, beautiful and deceptively detailed adventure game is everything that makes independently developed games such a rich and diverse source of engaging content. I say that because being a little bit frank, there’s a lot of goodness hidden inside Renowned Explorers, but like the buried treasure so often found in the game, you’ll have to dig for it a bit.

The concept of Renowned Explorers should be obvious enough from the title, but with that said, it’s amazing how few games actually focus on The Golden Age of Exploration in the way that this one does. Essentially, players form a crew of three characters that must then undertake a series of five expeditions, each of which takes place in some historically recognizable place such as a pyramid, »

Director Amber Tamblyn on Making Art in the Time of Trump

18 May 2017 5:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

When I get actor and director Amber Tamblyn on the phone on Monday morning, she has her hands full. Metaphorically, because the first movie she directed, Paint It Black, is hitting theaters in just a few short days; literally, because she's stocking her fridge with breast milk for her infant daughter, Marlow. In the last 13 months, Tamblyn has somehow managed to finish her first feature film, release her third book of poetry, Dark Sparkler, welcome her first child, and take my call. I am impressed. Paint It Black revolves around the intimate, tense relationship that forms between Josie (Alia Shawkat) and her boyfriend's mother, Meredith (Janet McTeer), in the wake of his suicide. (Full disclosure: while I'd never met Tamblyn before, I do have a personal connection to this project. Janet Fitch, who wrote the novel Paint It Black, taught in my Mfa program and remains a mentor to me. »

Jason Jones On Life and Work With Samantha Bee After ‘The Daily Show’

25 April 2017 5:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Daily Show” may have entered a new era with host Trevor Noah, but it’s not like the old cast went into retirement. Husband-and-wife contributors Jason Jones and Samantha Bee are among the most productive former members of the Jon Stewart “Daily Show” years — which is particularly notable once you discover they came close to taking over the program themselves.

Instead, the pair found a welcome home at TBS, where Bee hosts the weekly satiric news program “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” (which will air the special “Not the White House Correspondents Dinner” this weekend) and Jones serves as an executive producer. Meanwhile, the couple is also behind the TBS comedy “The Detour,” a subversive family comedy that they co-wrote and in which Jones stars.

Now wrapping its second season, “The Detour” began as an over-the-top road trip comedy with Jones as a corporate whistleblower moving his family across the country. »

Mauro Ranallo Out As WWE Smackdown Live Announcer

24 April 2017 10:18 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Newsweek is reporting that Mauro Ranallo, announcer for WWE Smackdown Live as well as boxing and Mma organizations, has left the company. Last seen on WWE television on March 7th, speculation has run high as to the reason why Mauro had been off the air. Some speculated it was due to his bi-polar disorder, which Mauro has been open about. Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, one of the preeminent wrestling news organizations in the country, has been adamant since the story broke that the reason for Mauro leaving was due to bullying from Jbl. Citing the March 13 episode of Bring It To The Table, starring Peter Rosenberg, he cites that Jbl's verbal jabs at Mauro for winning the Best Announcer Award from the Wrestling Observer were cause for Mauro to leave. Mauro had this to say to Newsweek about his departure.
