I thought I may be the biggest The Walking Dead fan ever, and then I read this nice little Comic Companion Graphic Novel. What this awesome 200 page book does is basically break down every character, conflict, love interest, and hate mongering up until around the beginning of the Whisperer War.
This may be the hugest complement I have ever given a book, but I would love this on top of my toilet seat for at least a year.
Throughout this book, they tend to outline some of your favorite characters and give great detail on the many situations that define them. The Carl segments were fantastic as they speculate on his future, like many of us do, but the writers perception of just who he will become is slightly different than what you may think. Of course, there are huge Negan, Glenn, Rick, Maggie, Andrea and other segments -- all worthy of a good read. »

Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster, AMC’s The Killing) and starring Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious) in the titular role, Wonder Woman made her big screen debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this new film will mark her first time the character has headlined a solo feature – though you’d be hard-pressed to top Lynda Carter’s formidable run as the character on TV.
Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine (Star Trek) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, House of Cards), Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).

It’s Hammer Time again! Every once in a while I like to dip back to that golden age, where the revered monsters of yore were dusted off with loving care for a newly appreciative crowd of teenagers at the Drive-In. Building upon the worldwide success of The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Horror of Dracula (’58), and The Mummy (’59), it was time for another Drac attack. The Brides of Dracula (1960) keeps up the high level horror, as long as you’re okay with a Dracula movie having no Dracula. Looking back on the whole series, Brides stands out (and up) due to this very omission.
Released in the UK in July, with a stateside rollout in September, Brides was another hit for the unstoppable Hammer machine; and why wouldn’t it be? All the staples (by this point, a formula, really) are present: cleavage, gorgeous cinematography, solid performances, and a gloriously elevated Gothic tone. »

If the nominations for best animated feature this year tell us anything it’s that we might be experiencing a comeback for stop-motion animation. Two of this year’s nominees are stop-motion films: Kubo and the Two Strings (a critically acclaimed letdown at the box office) and My Life as a Zucchini (which just so happens to be a foreign film, too). Let’s look at the relatively recent history of the best animated feature category to see how stop-motion is coming into its own and theorize on why that could be happening.
In addition to Kubo and the Two Strings and My Life as a Zucchini in the best animated feature category, there’s a solid showing by other styles. There are two Disney hits, Zootopia and Moana, that feature computer animation and one Studio Ghibli underdog, »

Super Bowl Sunday is just a few weeks away, and while we'll still have to wait and see who'll be playing in the big game, one of the very first TV commercials has debuted early.

In the aftermath of a brutal war between the living dead and the strictly living, a zombie safari offers a unique type of therapy and closure for traumatized survivors, but as our exclusive clip from the new horror film The ReZort shows, a new battle may just be beginning within the shores of the eerie island attraction.
