Villordsutch reviews Judge Dredd Megazine #349…
“It’s the final confrontation between Psi-Judge Anderson and her enemy in ‘Dead End’; there’s an epic smackdown in the Cursed Earth in the finale to ‘Red to the Bone’; Tony Tubbs tips off the Judges in ‘Tales from Mega-City One: Two Tonnes of Trouble’; and a long-lost spaceman comes crashing down to Earth in ‘The Man from the Ministry.’ And in the bagged graphic novel, ‘Judge Karyn’ by John Freeman and Adrian Salmon.”
The unfortunate thing for me here is I’m walking on the middle of stories that have unfolded over a fair few issues. It happens with every new reader and here I am jumping in on three stories that I’ve missed the opening to; in the case of “Anderson, Psi-Division” which is up to Part 7 , the final part it appears, I’ve got no clue on what’s happening. »
With season 4 not even cold in its grave, we take a spoiler-free look ahead to what Game Of Thrones season 5 has in store…
Warning: contains major spoilers for the season four finale, The Children, but designed to be safe for non A Song Of Ice And Fire readers.
“Season five gives me nightmares”. It may not be the most inspiring quote from Game Of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff, but as A Song Of Ice And Fire readers will tell you, his fears aren’t unjustified.
Book four of George R.R. Martin’s series - A Feast For Crows, the events of which would ordinarily be adapted for season five - is easily the saga’s least popular volume. Were season five to follow it slavishly, we wouldn’t see fan favourites Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow back next year as none features in the fourth book. Instead, »
While the gaming industry is as technologically advanced as it has ever been, there are always gamers out there who clamor for the days of old. A time when finishing a game to completion was something only the most skilled of beings could pull off. Nowadays, they say, why can’t new releases be as challenging as the original Mega Man? While I enjoy the era of gaming we are currently in greatly, they do have a point in some regards.
Developers know this too, as indie titles such as Super Meat Boy and Vvvvvv have been hits largely due to their unforgiving nature. Looking to also make a splash in the genre is Scientifically Proven’s Blood Of The Werewolf, which is part old-school platformer part homage to the Universal Monster pictures of the early 20th century.

Will they or won’t they? Are they or are they not? Newcastle’s move for Pierre-Michel Lasogga was swept up in a maelstrom of confusion at the weekend leaving us wondering if we are intending to try and sign the promising German striker.
On Saturday the Journal ran with a story claiming the Magpies had terminated their interest in Lasogga on account of Hertha Berlin slapping a £10 million price tag on his head – a valuation we knew the Club would be reluctant to meet for a player with zero Premier League experience.
But that conflicts with the tale spun by the Northern Echo on Monday morning which implies that Newcastle still retain hope of bringing the Under-21 international to St James’ Park this summer.
It was allied by an encouraging quote from Hertha general manager Michael Preetz, who said: “It is only about three clubs; Hertha, »

Shopping in the bargain basement is a cross Newcastle fan must continue to bear so long as Mike Ashley remains in power at St James’ Park and persists with his quest to construct a team on the principals of financial frugality.
But in the age of inflated transfer fees and ludicrous salary demands there can surely be no greater triumph to a chairman or manager than plucking a supreme quality freebie from the unattached shelf without having to relinquish a single penny from the club coffers. It’s the equivalent of finding a pristine pair of Gucci brogues in the knock-off bin at Aldi.
They say the best things in life are free and Newcastle have shopped exceptionally well in Bosman aisle. The signing of Jack Colback from Sunderland is testament to that with the Geordie midfielder running down his contract at the »

Newcastle hope to clinch their third signing of the summer this week after reportedly offering the Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis a colossal €2.5 million signing on fee.
Following the arrivals of Ayoze Perez and Jack Colback in recent days the Magpies have turned their attentions to securing the signature of Gomis and French daily L’equipe say we are prepared to break the bank to bring him to St James’ Park.
It’s thought Mike Ashley is open to the idea of bringing Gomis to Tyneside and will make the France international an offer he can’t refuse, including a €370,000 yearly salary, with Turkish giants Fenerbache and Galatasaray looming.
We’re in urgent need of striking reinforcements before the season begins and Alan Pardew will undoubtedly relish adding a forward of Gomis’ calibre to his attacking arsenal having lost top scorer Loic Remy during the close season. »

Sunderland have aimed a cheap shot at Jack Colback and admitted his exit left a “bitter taste” after Newcastle completed the signing of the Geordie midfielder yesterday.
The resentful Mackems were left to stew last night after losing Colback on a Bosman free transfer to their greatest rivals and issued a statement illustrating their disappointment at not recouping a fee for the 24-year-old after nurturing his talent through their academy.
And it was even suggested the boyhood Newcastle fan had indicated that he was prepared to extend his contract at the Stadium of Light only to ruffle the feathers of our Wearside neighbours by penning a long-term deal with the Magpies to fulfil a lifelong dream to wear the Black and White stripes.
“This wasn’t about money – the club agreed to all of the terms demanded of us during discussions and we were always led to believe that »

Pop the champagne corks, Newcastle United have signed a player! Although the Club are yet to officially announce it the Chronicle understand that we have completed a deal for Tenerife striker Ayoze Perez.
Photographs of Perez parading a Black and White shirt inside St James’ Park made their way around social networks last night in the clearest indication yet that the 20-year-old Spaniard will be a Magpie next season despite there being no official word from the Magpies.
It’s understood that Perez will cost around £1.5 million and has signed a four-year contract to become our first permanent signing in 18 months, although he’s not the marquee purchase many fans had hoped for.

This week's 'Best Shot' film Zorba the Greek (1964) was a first-time watch for yours truly. Oscar chose it for us since it won Walter Lassally's the Best Cinematography (Black and White) statue in the year we happen to be celebrating this month. At one point in the picture Zorba (Anthony Quinn and Anthony Quinn's giant expressive face), catches his employer Basil (Alan Bates, in young, stuffy, super pretty mode) sipping at alcohol. Zorba, a man of big appetites, forcefully tilts the bottle higher to get more booze down his boss's throat.
Don't be delicate..."
He tells his boss. That's good advice if you're watching Zorba the Greek which is, and I cannot understand why no actressexuals warned me of this, a fairly reprehensible motion picture. If this series were called Hit Me With The Shot That Shows Your Feelings About This Movie, my choice would be a »

With the launch of her 2 latest collections, ‘Char Bagh’ and ‘Lady Sahara’, Payal Singhal has created looks that the who’s who of Bollywood can’t get enough of.
Char Bagh, which means “four gardens,” is a Persian-style, quadrilateral garden layout that is divided by walkways or flowing water into four small parts. The collection consists of a color palette of pale blush pink and black in earthy, natural fabrics like silk mul, cotton and crepe silk.

When you think back to your college days, nothing comes to mind except drug-fueled parties, elaborate pranks, and parents with babies ripping shots in the corner, right? No, that was just me? Kidding, not even I lived that crazy a college life, but Nicholas Stoller’s new movie Neighbors has all of that, until turning into an all-out fraternity war between Zac Efron’s legendary Greek family, and the parents next door suffering a midlife crisis. Yes, the film is as riotously funny as that scenario sounds, which I was happy to report after screening Neighbors when it premiered at South by Southwest this year.
While doing his press rounds in New York City last week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with director Nicholas Stoller to talk about this wild, one-of-a-kind comedic event featuring so many hilarious comedic talents. I was sure he’d have a ton of »

Director Nicholas Stoller’s latest film, Neighbors, opens in theaters this weekend, and while tackling the divide between a fraternity and their thirtysomething neighbors certainly provides plenty of comedic material, Stoller’s planned next film offers a unique avenue to explore. Tentatively titled Black and White, the comedy would star Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart as the first white cop/black cop pairing in history, with the story taking place in the 1940s. We previously spoke with Stoller about the film and he was very enthusiastic about the prospect of it being his next feature, and when Steve recently sat down with producers Evan Goldberg and James Weaver in anticipation of Neighbors, the duo also discussed Black and White. Goldberg noted that the setting and premise gives them “a free pass to be racist”, as they’re able to tackle race-centered jokes because the film is about how terrible racism is. »

Influenced by the Italian Giallo movement, Belgium Writer/Director partners Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani's second feature The Strange Colour Of Your Body's Tears continues in a similar vein to their 2009 erotic thriller, Amor and short O Is For Orgasm that made up 2012s' ABCs Of Death anthology.
A stressful opening onslaught of sound escalating in volume and tempo, contrasts with the quiet breathing of a man slumbering on a plane to the sound of its engine and sudden turbulence. Black and white snapshots in sinister freeze-frames show disturbed dreams accompanied by the amplified sound of a knife being pulled out of a corpse. Unnerving close-ups of frescos, stained glass windows and tilted shots looking up at an old Art Nouveau house introduce us to where the majority of the film's action takes place before a kaleidoscopic effect and loud crunching noises reveal the film's lengthy title. »
All week I've said it and I'll say it again: Nicholas Stoller’s Neighbors is an extremely funny movie filled with laugh out loud sequences. You should definitely see it this weekend in a crowded theater. If you haven't seen the trailers or read our previous coverage, the film stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a married couple with a newborn baby who must deal with a fraternity—fronted by Zac Efron—when it moves in next door. Neighbors also stars Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jake Johnson, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo, Jerrod Carmichael, and Lisa Kudrow. A few days ago at the New York City press day, I landed an exclusive interview with Seth Rogen. During our wide ranging conversation he talked about transitioning from a struggling actor to being able to get movies made, how Neighbors changed from its inception to the final release, how and why they cast Rose Byrne, »

With his iconic laugh and maniacal mean streak, Wolf Creek's Mick Taylor is on par with Baby Firefly as one of the coolest cinematic killers – just not nearly as attractive. John Jarratt brings Mick to a new low as the gritty, downright dirty evildoer from Down Under in the long-awaited sequel.
Inventively entitled Wolf Creek 2, the flick is due out in theaters on May 16th. We got the chance to pick John’s brain (before Mick could pick ours – thank goodness the interview was done over the phone), and here’s what he had to say to all the horror fans who’ve been anxiously awaiting his return.
Dread Central: It has been a long time between the Wolf Creek films; can you tell us why the delay for Mick’s return?

Review by Kathy Kaiser
Dan Wechsler’s vision as he chronicles the life of street photographer Matt Weber, is truly mesmerizing, as the film More Than The Rainbow brings an innate sense of realism to Matt’s life, and the streets of the city where his life and compassion for art combine – New York City.
Going from being a cabbie for 12 years on the streets of New York, this film shares how Weber’s love of photography evolved from the quick snaps out of his taxi cab window, to the full time street photographer he is today.
Along for the ride of telling not only Matt’s story – but sharing their own – are numerous fellow photo journalists, who know where Matt’s passion and realism comes from, as they too, make a living doing what they love – taking images of “their world” – sharing their own lives, passions and personalities along the way. »
