Marc Alan Fishman: To Boob or Not To Boob

2 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

A short one act play, in response to this recent hubbub during the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con.

To boob, or not to boob, that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind of cosplayers to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fans and parents

Or to take arms against a sea of tsk-tsks,

And by opposing, end them.

To diet (to fit in a form-fitting costume) – to sleep on the floor of your con hotel suite –

No more; and by a sleep to say we end

The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks

That the display of flesh is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wish’d of the fans to see.

For those not playing along, let’s cut to the chase. This past weekend, a cosplay maven – with distinct permission to come in her much-worked-upon Silent Hill cosplay – was jeered and leered at by some in the crowd, »

PlayStation Store and the lack of backwards compatibility

23 August 2017 4:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James Hoyle Aug 30, 2017

Sony has work to do on PlayStation backwards compatibility - an area it's lagging behind Xbox One...

Blood soaks the walls of the fog-filled entrance to a labyrinthine alley.

Bravely, Harry continues into the darkness. A siren wails hauntingly from some unknown place. There is something terribly disconcerting about all this. Perhaps he should go back? And then, in the blackness, he sees a gurney. A bloody sheet covers what can only be a body lying beneath it. And yet, Harry goes on. More blood is splattered on the concrete, even more drips from the chain link fence. And then he comes across it – a horrifying decomposing corpse hangs from the fence in front of him. And what are those figures coming towards him out of the gloom?

Things are looking very bad in the town of Silent Hill.

It is one of the most memorable moments in video game history. »

Top 5: Movies from The Asylum

22 August 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

With Sharknado 5 making a splash on TV screens across the globe these past few weeks, what better time to visit the world of The Asylum? With a myriad of films under their belt, from their beginnings as king of the mockbuster to their foray into original film making, it’s no secret we’re big fans of these bastions of the direct to DVD market and have reviewed a Lot of their output! With that in mind, here’s my pick of the Top 5 (because it’s Sharknado Five… geddit?!?) movies from The Asylum in – shock, horror – order of preference…

5) Avengers Grimm

An off-the-wall mix of Grimm Fairy tale characters and superhero team-up movies which, frankly, should have been obvious given the title, Avengers Grimm’s plot is relatively simple: when Rumpelstiltskin uses the Magic Mirror to escapes to the modern world taking Snow White with him and destroying the mirror in the process, »

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Hulu in September

16 August 2017 5:07 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

August has been Friends Month at Hulu, with the streaming service getting a big collection of movies and TV shows that are all about people who have friends or whatever, so it’s appropriate that September will be Family Month—a month dedicated to movies and TV shows about people who either have families or don’t have families because their parents were gunned down in an alley. In September, Hulu subscribers will be able to catch such family-centric content as The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, season 13 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Batman, Batman Returns, Carrie, My Girl, Robocop, And You Thought Your Parents Were Weird, Silent Hill, Freaky Friday (1977), Freaky Friday (2003), and Lilo & Stitch—though that one’s technically about ‘ohana, which means family.

Subscribers will also be able to watch a bunch of classic Tgif sitcoms, most of which revolve around families »

Daniel Licht, ‘Dexter,’ ‘Children of the Corn’ Composer, Dies at 60

3 August 2017 9:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Daniel Licht, composer for TV’s “Dexter,” died of cancer late Wednesday. He was 60.

Licht scored all eight seasons of “Dexter,” the Showtime serial-killer drama, from 2006 to 2013. Although he also wrote music for movies and other TV projects, it was his quirky music for “Dexter” – employing unusual sounds using bones, knives, scissors, duct tape, wine glasses, didgeridoo, Irish harp and other instruments – that became his best-known work.

Seven albums of “Dexter” music, all featuring his scores, were released. Licht himself played many of the percussion instruments in a 10-minute orchestral suite of “Dexter” music performed live at Poland’s Krakow Film Music Festival in 2015.

Said “Dexter” executive producer Clyde Phillips: “Dan was an incredibly talented musician and composer, but most of all, he was a dear friend. His passing leaves all of us a bit quieter, a bit sadder, and without the gift of his music and his love »

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: A look back at Blade Runner’s video game history

20 July 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The signature neon-and-smoke Blade Runner aesthetic is all over video games, from Hideo Kojima’s 1988 Snatcher to more recent efforts like the Deus Ex series, Gemini Rue, and futuristic bartending sim Va-11 Hall-a. In games, Blade Runner and cyberpunk are synonymous.

Over at Kotaku, Peter Tieryas talks with the folks behind the only two games directly adapted from Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic. In 1985, an 8-bit Blade Runner game came out for the Commodore 64 and Zx Spectrum, but publisher Crl Group Plc was actually unable to secure the rights to the film; as a workaround, it’s technically based on Vangelis’ soundtrack.

The more popular, and better, adaptation is Westwood Studios’ 1997 Blade Runner, a point-and-click PC game that pulls some interesting Silent Hill 2-style tricks with player perception and choice.

“Above all the Blade Runner game is a simulation,” [executive producer Louis] Castle explained. “Each »

The Mist Season 1 Episode 1 Review

22 June 2017 8:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of The Mist

Based on a Stephen King novella from the 1980’s The Mist is small-scale paranoia ramped up by small town mentalities. More prevalent now than upon its initial literary release the show establishes stock characters early, drops in an atmospheric sense of unease within five minutes while setting up small town rivalries and broadly written stereotypes.

There is a teacher (Sutherland) put on suspension because of unorthodox methods, her husband (Spector) the local newspaper man who is trying to raise their daughter. Conspiracy theorists living next door and an abundance of testosterone fuelled police, more interested in male posturing than stopping crimes. After a girl has cause to get the local quarterback in trouble the aforementioned ‘Mist’ rolls in with no degree of subtlety causing havoc.

From that point on people quickly lose their minds, are constantly telling each other there is something in The Mist while still going out into it without hesitation. Special effects are sparingly used and effective without seeming unnecessary. Performances across the board are good considering the confines of character these actors have been gifted. Writers for the show have expressed a desire to explore alienation, fear around people with agendas as well as the infiltration of unknown entities that lead to isolationist tactics and segregation.

These are all noble themes to be exploring and so far The Mist has given us economic storytelling, minus needless filler by allowing characters to slowly be introduced. Now trapped in different locations, surrounded by those they have little trust in things will develop further. Distraction techniques familiar to those who have read or watched King before are all present and correct. Wildlife flying in the opposite direction to the threat, older mysterious people with hidden pasts wandering into places of worship and unresolved family issues playing out independently.

These are themes which are familiar in King’s work but are always done well. As Spike only have ten episodes commissioned from The Weinstein Company, things best move along at a pace. So far there has been no wasted time, no needless fluff and after forty minutes we find ourselves in established territory. Segueing into slow burn thriller territory on a television budget The Mist is thematically equipped to explore the present political and social concerns, through its formless force which has swathed Bridgeville in anonymity.

Using a minimal amount of screen time for expositional purposes this adaptation has hit the ground running, coming across as Silent Hill meets Escape from Precinct 13. Hard boiled characters with a liking for firearms and bags of money stashed in tool sheds are present and correct, while our man in the opening five joins the fray keeping evil at bay.
