Comic Book Reviews: DC Round Up Week 09-14-2016

DC is settling into its new focused style of content storytelling, and producing some fantastic stories thanks to the new approach. While mostly everything has been a hit, there have been a few snags as well. One issue I keep having is trying to figure out how it all “fits” together in a bigger picture. Some books seem closer connected others; some appear not connected all to the larger DC Universe. This might not be a problem for most, it can be a little jarring for me, when I’m reading Batgirl is running around Japan in her book, but is also hanging out with Huntress and Black Canary in the Birds of Prey series, while appearing in Nightwing and referencing her time currently in Japan, but Black Canary appears in Green Arrow without any indication she’s even been to Gotham or around Batgirl.

Michael Ironside and the evolution of his missing body parts

One of the all-time great screen villains, Michael Ironside also has a tendency to lose body parts. Phil celebrates the Laurence Olivier of the missing limb...

If there is one thing guaranteed to get me to watch a film, regardless of my mood or the movie’s reputation, it would be the sentence, “It’s got Michael Ironside in it”. I’m just a huge fan, and have loved his work ever since I first saw the original V TV mini-series one balmy childhood summer while I was staying at my Auntie Anne's.

As Ham Tyler, the leather jacketed ex-cia agent who becomes an instrumental figure in the Los Angeles Resistance movement, Ironside seemed to dominate every scene he was in, and what impressed me most about his zero tolerance approach to the alien visitors was that here was a good guy who looked and sounded like a bad guy.

Fridrik Thor Fridriksson’s Sunshine Boy trailer

It’s been a while since ICeland’s first and only Oscar nominated feature director Fridrik Thor Fridriksson released a film, his last being Niceland in 2004. Since then he’s been producing mostly, titles like Guy X, Beowulf and Grendel and most recently Baltasar Kormakur’s Reykjavik Rotterdam. He has how ever been filming a documentary on the down low that will be released next January here in Iceland and is about a woman’s search for answers about her son’s autism called Sunshine Boy.

Autism is a strange disease which affects each person differently, it can completely shut a person down or transform him/her in to a some sort of genius. Did you know for instance that Nasa is the largest employer of autistic individuals in the Us? Why? Because they are incredible problem solvers and mathematicians. Can you imagine that individuals that most people would label

Nmff: Day 5

  • The New Montreal FilmFest is starting (for real this time). Ooooohh. Aaaaaaah. Something seems to have happened at the festival. Have Spectra's prayers been answered? The press office now seems to be as crowded as a hive of bees. There are actually people in the room! The 8 computers for journalists are now occupied most of the time, a flagrant contrast with the first few days of the festival. Screenings, while they remain mostly empty are now more crowded than ever. I was surprised to see about 100 people at a Lithuanians movie screening on a Thursday at 5Pm!! Who the heck wants to see a Lithuanian film at that time? Well, apparently a hundred people did—mostly aged Lithuanians. On the first day of the festival, a 5Pm Russian film got about 30 spectators or so. So, the attendance seems to be getting bigger. Later today I went to a screening of Sabu's Shissho.
