Review Round-Up: Camera Obscura, Aaron’S Blood, and The Little Hours

3 July 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

June ended up being a particularly busy month of releases, and here’s a look at three different indie films that I had the opportunity to check out over the last several weeks:

Camera Obscura: For his feature film directorial debut, co-writer/director Aaron B. Koontz concocts his own “weird episode of Goosebumps” (to borrow a phrase from the film) in Camera Obscura, which feels like a mash-up of Shutter (the original, not the remake) and Final Destination, with a bit of a slasher twist thrown in for good measure. Koontz deftly maneuvers through familiar genre tropes to create an unexpected horror treat, anchored by a strong performance from Christopher Denham (Shutter Island, The Bay).

In Camera Obscura, we meet photographer Jack Zeller (Denham), who has been struggling with Ptsd after returning from shooting photos in the Middle East. His supportive fiancée, Claire (Nadja Bobyleva), decides to pick him »

Comic Book Review – Wonder Woman #25

30 June 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews Wonder Woman #25…

Writer Greg Rucka weaves together the threads of “The Lies,” “Year One,” “The Truth,” and “Godwatch”—every story in Wonder Woman since the start of the DC Universe Rebirth era—in this extra-sized anniversary issue!

See Also: Check out a preview of Wonder Woman #25 here

Greg Rucka’s time on Wonder Woman finally comes to an end with #25 in a bittersweet anniversary issue. He wraps up nearly everything in his run, but sends Diana off with an emotional resolution that caps off everything he’s been building towards since the very first issue.

Rather than focusing on the loose threads left in his story, such as Cheetah’s or Doctor Cyber’s whereabouts, Rucka ops to examine Diana’s character and her emotional state following the events of Wonder Woman #23 and #24. It’s a side of Diana that we rarely see, one consumed by anger, »

Ricky Church reviews Batman #25…

“The War of Jokes and Riddles” part one! Don’t miss this extra-sized anniversary issue! In his own words, Bruce Wayne narrates a harrowing, never-before-told story of the Dark Knight’s greatest failure…and the horrors it unleashed! In the spirit of Year One and The Long Halloween, prepare to see a side of Batman you’ve never seen before—get in on the ground floor of a classic Batman epic in the making!

It goes without saying The Joker and The Riddler are two of Batman’s most formidable foes. Joker often challenges Batman on a philosophical level while Riddler an intellectual one and while both share an obsession with Batman, the two couldn’t be more different in how they operate against the Dark Knight. Tom King sets out to examine what happens when happens when Joker and Riddler go to war in Batman »

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #9 Review

7 June 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review contains some spoilers.

Although I found the previous issue to be less than stellar, it’s well-documented that I’ve been a strong advocate of Dark Knight III: The Master Race. This week, it’s forced to pass its true litmus test because the closing chapter will ultimately determine if it’s the stuff of legend (The Dark Knight Returns) or a complete farce (The Dark Knight Strikes Again!).

While we may need more time and perspective in order to properly determine if this entry in the series is indeed legendary, I will say that it’s a worthy successor to the original through and through, and that Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello have succeeded in crafting something that needs to adorn the shelves of all Batfans.

An undeniable strong suit of this book has been its ability to callback to Miller’s earlier works without seeming like a rehash. »

Carson Daly Wouldn’t Let Go of His First Emmy for ‘The Voice’

6 June 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In 2012 Carson Saly was a newcomer to the Emmy Awards. NBC’s “The Voice,” which Daly hosts and produces, had received its first Emmy nomination. Though the show lost that year, it won in 2013, becoming the second show to beat “The Amazing Race” since the inception of the reality competition category in 2003. Since then, Daly has taken home two more Emmys (in 2015 and 2016) for the singing competition show. No one is more surprised about his trio of Emmy hardware than Daly.

In 2013 did you think “The Voice” had a shot against perennial favorite “The Amazing Race”?

I didn’t think we had a chance. We were shocked the year before to be nominated because we were nominated and “American Idol” wasn’t, so we figured we got the singing spot. Year one we knew we wouldn’t win. Then come year two, we figured the same thing. You have to remember we were still in the afterglow »

Great Job, Internet!: There were some great, unmade Batman movies

5 June 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Among major superhero film series, Batman’s saga has been relatively straight-forward. There are really three eras: the early, beloved Tim Burton movies; the campy, much-ridiculed Joel Schumacher films; then the legendary Christopher Nolan trilogy. Unlike Superman or Spider-Man or The X-Men, which have all shuffled hands and chronologies a few times, you can draw a pretty clear line of the stewardship of the Batman franchise, leading up to today, when it rests in the sturdy, dark-blue-tinted hands of director Zack Snyder and the gruff Ben Affleck. But there were a million false starts along the way, as a new video from Looper explores. Which ones might’ve been good?

Darren Aronofsky’s fraught take on Frank Miller’s Year One comic series could have been something of a classic. (It had treatments written by the Wachowskis and Joss Whedon, all to no avail.) Mad Max mastermind George Miller was »

Comic Book Review – Wonder Woman Annual #1

31 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews Wonder Woman Annual #1..

The world of the Amazing Amazon expands in a collection of short stories that take Wonder Woman around the globe! In the days after “Year One,” Diana comes face-to-face with Superman and Batman for the first time, as illustrated by “Year One” artist Nicola Scott…and years later, Liam Sharp brings you the story of how their friendship has evolved!

See Also: Check out a preview of Wonder Woman Annual #1 here

To begin, Wonder Woman Annual #1 is not entirely what is advertised above. The annual is more of a collection of short stories from various writers and artists than one cohesive story. While Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott do tell the first meeting between DC’s main trinity, it is only a short and Liam Sharp is nowhere to be found in the issue. Those expecting a full issue from the current Wonder Woman »

Greg Rucka Discusses Wonder Woman Annual #1 In New Video

30 May 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Saying that this is a big week for Wonder Woman is certainly an understatement. Not only is there much buzz surrounding her first solo outing on the silver screen (you can read our review here), but her first annual yielded by the Rebirth era is also set to hit shelves.

Although said annual is slated to be an anthology of sorts, many readers are likely looking forward to the contribution made by Greg Rucka, who has served as writer on the flagship title for the past year, and artist Nicola Scott, who was paired with him for the Wonder Woman: Year One story arc.

In the latest episode of DC All Access, co-host Whitney Moore chats with Rucka about his 10-page tale that actually takes place within the same time frame as Year One, effectively showing how Diana first met Batman and Superman in current continuity. Sure, we’ve all »

While Willis definitely kicks a** in his new movie, would he ever return for a sixth Die Hard film?

DC Reveals Wonder Woman Day Books

30 March 2017 10:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you’re a DC fan and happen to like free books, well, it looks like you’re going to have a rather joyous spring, doubly so if you love Wonder Woman.

By now, I’m pretty sure everyone here is familiar with the concept of Free Comic Book Day. If not, here’s the gist of it: Every year on the first Saturday in May, all of the top comic book publishers send out a title or two for participating retailers to hand out. Not only does this provide an opportunity to reel in new readers, but it also increases foot traffic in those shops, kind of making it the industry’s equivalent of Black Friday.

When it comes to 2017’s offerings, DC has already been confirmed to be putting out two books heavily focused on Wonder Woman: An excerpt from the upcoming Wonder Woman: Year One trade paperback »

Batman Group Solicits June 2017 Gallery 1 of 5

More From The Web Click to zoom 

Last week, we brought word that it appeared as though Joker and Riddler would be going head to head in the pages of Batman this June and, thanks to a freshly released batch of solicits, we now know that it’s an absolute certainty. Not only that, but we’ve also learned what’s on the horizon for related books such as All-Star Batman, Batgirl and Super Sons.

First, let’s talk about Batman, since I imagine you’re all anxious to hear about that one. As it turns out, we’re still in the dark when it comes to the wealth of the plot, but seeing as how DC is invoking the holy names of masterworks such as Year One and The Long Halloween, we can only assume that rumors saying the upcoming »

New Star Wars: Darth Vader series will pick up from the end of Revenge of the Sith

11 March 2017 11:01 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

IGN is reporting that Marvel is set to launch a brand new Star Wars: Darth Vader ongoing comic book series from writer Charles Soule and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli, which will pick up from the end of Revenge of the Sith and explore Vader’s ‘Year One’ as the apprentice of Emperor Palpatine.

“The book begins one second after the end of Revenge of the Sith,” Soule tells IGN. “Darth Vader is in the armored suit that we see throughout the rest of his life, most of his life. He is just awakening to that moment and that realization. So he has shouted ‘No!’ in the way we see in the film, and then it picks up immediately after that point. So we see him adjusting to that. We see him learning to be more machine than man. We see him going through some really, really cool early moments of his early mythology and history. »

Darth Vader Comic Reveals Red Lightsaber's Origin & Vader's Rise To Power

10 March 2017 1:22 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you have not been following all the Star Wars comics published by Marvel, then you are losing out. Some of these comics, and there have been a few series now, have sold better than the regular Marvel superhero books. As Revenge of the Sith comes to an end, a new book about Darth Vader will be arriving, and in the series we learn quite a lot of new information about Anakin, including the origin of his legendary red Lightsaber. 

The book is being written by Charles Soule (the goto guy for Star Wars comics and Batman: Year One) and drawn by Giuseppe Camuncoli (best known for his Spider-Man work, and my favorite is his work on Daken related books). This will be the second Vader book, and it is being thought of as Darth Vader: Year One. IGN was able to get a phone interview with Soule and ask »

The Division Year 2 Content Includes Two Free Expansions, First Planned For Summer Release

8 March 2017 8:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ubisoft will release two free expansions for The Division in 2017, both of which will focus on PvE content. The news comes by way of an interview between Ubisoft Massive and Game Rant (via VG247), which comes ahead of a stream planned for later today that aims to go into more detail on what players can expect from the shooter for its second year. Both expansions have yet to be named, but the first is due to drop within the next few months, with the second planned for the tail end of this year.

Explaining the decision to give all players some substantial free content, Ubisoft’s Julian Gerighty told the site that “tt’s a philosophy of generosity and rewarding players for spending time in the game and playing and driving them to player-driven activities where they can craft their own unique stories.” For those hopeful that either content drop »

Bill Condon interview: Beauty And The Beast, Twilight, fandom

Beauty & The Beast director Bill Condon on the film, Twilight, fandom, F/X 2 and Die Hard...

Very mild spoilers for Beauty & The Beast. Big spoilers for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Brave man, Bill Condon. The director who has given us films as diverse as Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh, Dreamgirls, Gods And Monsters, two Twilight movies and Kinsey has turned his attention to the live action take on Disney’s 1991 classic, Beauty And The Beast. During his stop off in London to promote the movie, he spared us some time for a chat. Here’s how it went…

I’m your toughest crowd, I suspect. I always wondered what it’d be like if someone ever remade my favourite film and I had to interview them.

What’s you’re favourite film?

Er, the 1991 version of Beauty And The Beast.

Oooohhhhh. Well tell me the things you miss from the original film. »

Wonder Woman Vol. 1: The Lies Review

28 February 2017 8:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based off a volume that collects Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1 and Wonder Woman #1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11.

Call me crazy, but no in continuity Wonder Woman story has really resonated with me since Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang concluded what I would call a definitive run. Believe it or not, I did think Meredith and David Finch’s material had some bright spots and, when it comes to Greg Rucka’s current take, I think it’s good but it doesn’t “wow” me.

Maybe that had to do in part with how this title was structured when it came to publishing. You see, all odd numbered issues – in this case, the ones that comprised The Lies – take place in the present, whereas even numbered ones are set in the past and make up the Year One arc. It was a clever way of balancing the respective workloads of artists Liam Sharp and Nicola Scott, »

Can Matt Reeves Save Batman & The DC Universe?

13 February 2017 12:10 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You’d think that getting a movie about Batman into production would be the easiest thing in the world. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939, the billionaire who dresses up as a rodent to fight crime has consistently been one of the most famous characters in pop culture, across multiple mediums and incarnations. And cinematically speaking, he probably still stands as the most consistently popular superhero.

But despite all of that, history is littered with unmade or what-if Batman movies — a third Joel Schumacher film, Darren Aronofsky’s “Year One,” an aborted early battle with Superman that Wolfgang Petersen would have directed.
