Film4 FrightFest 2014 Review – Show Pieces (2014)

23 August 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Show Pieces, 2014

Written and directed by Mitch Jenkins

Starring Siobhan Hewlett, Darrell D’Silva, Robert Goodman, Andrew Buckley, Ella Smith, Deak Teaser, Khandie Khisses, Alan Moore

Synopsis:

Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins bring a “trilogy of terror” featuring “Act of Faith”, “Jimmy’s End” and “His Heavy Heart”.

Comic book legend and famed adaptation hater Alan Moore teams with renowned photographer Mitch Jenkins to produce the surreal and darkly comedic “trilogy of terror”, Show Pieces. It’s a movie with such a morbid sense of humour and surreality that even The League of Gentleman might think it’s ‘a bit much’.

The three stories are all connected in some fashion, although the third part is a direct sequel to the second leaving the first part to be your “breadcrumbs of clues” as it cameos in the second story. It’s not exactly Pulp Fiction in its intricacies, but it is very subtle. »

Alan Moore wants fans to boycott Brett Ratner’s Hercules

20 July 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary graphic novel writer Alan Moore (Watchmen, V For Vendetta) has called for fans to boycott the forthcoming Hercules movie directed by Brett Ratner (X:Men The Last Stand, Rush Hour), produced by Paramount/MGM and starring Dwayne Johnson. The latest adaptation of the Greek demigod is based on Radical Comics Hercules: The Thracian Wars written by longtime friend Scott Moore (no relation to Alan).

Alan Moore’s issue has nothing to do with the quality of the final piece or even how faithful it’s been to the original source material – like his similar qualms with his own graphic novel adaptations – it is simply to do with how his friend’s name – following his untimely death in March of this year – has been used to help promote the movie. Speaking to Bleeding Cool, Alan Moore explains that following unsuccessful negotiations regarding the rights of the comic books Scott Moore received »

The trailer has been released for Show Pieces, the latest instalment of Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins’ film project The Show, which will debut at this year’s Film4 FrightFest.

Showtime Renews its Erotic Horror Drama Penny Dreadful for Second Season

4 June 2014 8:56 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

There’s a very good chance that the only reason I’m totally digging Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” is because Eva Green is in it. I mean, it’s entirely possible, but I like to think it’s also because of the show’s crazy takes on familiar literary monsters like Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, and all that good stuff. It’s sort of like Alan Moore’s “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” but sexier. And with Eva Green. Thankfully Showtime shares my enjoyment of the show, because only 4 episodes into the show’s freshman run, the paid cable network’s renewed the John Logan-penned/produced horror series for a second season. It’s also no surprise to me that the show is enjoying a big audience on the network’s Showtime on Demand, since that’s where I end up watching most of it, too. Hell, it’s »

Son Of Batman Blu-Ray Review

9 May 2014 8:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The DC Universe Animated Original Movies line has delivered some absolutely terrific comic book adaptations (Jay Oliva’s two-part Batman: The Dark Knight Returns comes to mind), and also some thoroughly mediocre ones (like most of the Superman entries). It’s impressive how much work goes into animating these direct-to-video titles, but a fair share of them have been unfortunately sidetracked by stilted voice acting and weak writing.

Son of Batman, which loosely adapts Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert’s “Batman and Son” arc, is far from the worst of the Dcu Animated titles, though that’s probably the highest praise I can give it. While the animation is damn-near flawless, and the voice acting is mostly above average, this tonally dissonant offering ends up taking on more story than it can handle.

Opening in grand fashion, Son of Batman introduces us first not to the Caped Crusader, but to his young son Damian, »

Together they form an uneasy alliance to try and thwart the criminal enterprise of Deathstroke and his army of ninja man-bats before there are international consequences.

Son of Batman delivers all the elements to create a memorable film – powerful villains, treacherous plot twists and tensions amongst allies,” stated Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. “Showcasing »

Death Machine (1994) Review

25 April 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Death Machine (1994)

Written by: Stephen Norrington

Directed by: Stephen Norrington

Cast: Ely Pouget (Hayden Cale), William Hopkins (John Carpenter), John Sharian (Sam Raimi), Martin McDougall (Yutani), Richard Brake (Scott Ridley), Brad Dourif (Jack Dante)

The early to mid-nineties were an interesting time in horror. To coin a very familiar phrase, “It was the best of times, and the worst of times.” I’ll go with the bad stuff first. Nothing much was happening at the popular theatres in the vein of any quality horror, but on the bright side, we did get some small theatrical release and direct to video gems on VHS. At this point VHS was an established format. The novelty had worn off, but all of these really unique movies that would have never been seen, found a home on the rental shelves. I’ve seen some great ones that still are personal favorites, »

8 Awesome Alan Moore Moments That We Didn’t Get To See On Film

21 March 2014 4:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC

When it comes to graphic novels, there is no writer quite as revered as Alan Moore. His creations – such as Watchmen, V for Vendetta, The Killing Joke and From Hell – have helped to revolutionize the industry, bringing it the artistic recognition that it had previously been denied. So much of the great output that we see in comics and graphic novels today owes a debt to his efforts, and the boundaries that he was willing to push on his way to greatness.

With success such as these, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood tried to adapt some of Moore’s works for the big screen. Unfortunately, though, while the quality of his writing has been consistently brilliant, the adaptations of Moore’s work have been something of a mixed bag. We’ve seen a good Watchmen film, a flawed though interesting V for Vendetta, and adaptations »

Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill have no time for a preamble or set up in Nemo: The Roses Of Berlin, the latest offshoot of their League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series. Within the first couple of pages, they dive right into the story of Janni Dakkar, the daughter of Nemo, and her husband Broad Arrow Jack invading 1940s Berlin to rescue their daughter. When their son-in-law’s airship is shot down over Germany with their daughter inside, Janni and Jack storm Berlin, finding a city that they didn’t expect.
