Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'The Wolverine' & More

26 July 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying." – Woody Allen

Greetings from the apocalypse! Woody Allen may have been cracking wise with that quote, but when it comes to Wolverine, eternity is no laughing matter. Somehow this weekend has found a way to include both in your moviegoing diet, so let's feast, shall we?

Pow! In Theaters

Bias Admission: When Darren Aronofsky announced that he would be directing "The Wolverine," I went out and bought up the original Chris Claremont/Frank Miller source material, absorbing the Japan-set rōnin's tale in all its '80s glory. Then the "Black Swan" helmer dropped out, James Mangold took up the reins and I promptly sold that graphic novel. Why? It wasn't worth getting invested in anymore. Aronofsky is a visionary director, Mangold is a journeyman, and as soon as he signed on »

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'Much Ado About Nothing' & More

7 June 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Greetings from the apocalypse! Along with my trusty dog, I'm currently gunning the last of the V8 Interceptors towards a fortified gasoline refuge in the middle of the Australian outback. While I'm thus occupied, why don't you innocent clanspeople of Tomorrow-morrow Land check out some of this weekend's most fruitful distractions … unless you're chained to a car with handcuffs made out of high-tensile steel. Man, I've been there …

New On Blu

Oh man, oh man, oh man … The 'Mad Max' Collection on Blu-ray! It's all three of the most-worshipped post-apocalyptic vehicular mayhem movies ever burned onto celluloid, including for the first time on Blu-ray the amazingly bizarre "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome." Unfortunately there's not much in the way of new bonus content on any of these, but the prints are all glorious — especially "Thunderdome," which looks like a brand-new movie. There's a great doc on the first "Mad Max, »

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'After Earth' & More

31 May 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"I don't know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason. I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived." –Will Smith

Greetings from the apocalypse! It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n' roll, but if you're Will Smith's kid it ain't that long. The thoroughly Thetan-free father-son gods among us will be exemplars of human perfection on screen this weekend, but that doesn't mean you have to give them your money. There's plenty to see, do, touch, taste, smell, snort and vomit with the fully stocked weekend of entertainment I have lined up for ya, kiddos.

Pow! In Theaters

M. Night Shyamalan hasn't exactly been an audience's best friend for the last, oh, decade or so, which is why the studio wasn't generous in name-dropping him as director of "After Earth." Indeed, »

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'The Great Gatsby' & More

10 May 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy." ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Great Gatsby"

Greetings from the apocalypse! This is an exciting week for me, since I'm making my art gallery debut and all — I'm celebrating with two docs covering cool artistic subcultures (gig posters and tattooing), as well as a hella ton of Mother's Day recommends. Let's get to it, shall we, old sport? Yep yep.

Pow! In Theaters

Glam filmmaker Baz Luhrmann's reimagining of F. Scott Fitzgerald's timeless Jazz-age romance "The Great Gatsby" looks like my 11th grade book report had sex with a disco ball, but that's par for the course. Luhrmann had previously razzle-dazzled "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet" and reunites with Leonardo DiCaprio as enigmatic rich dude Jay Gatsby, clinging to the memory of a past dalliance with Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan). Clinging tragically, »

Emerald City Comicon Exclusive: Day 1

8 March 2013 1:02 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Welcome To The Emerald City Comicon!

While it’s no San Diego Comicon, maybe that’s a good thing. This past weekend, from March 1st to 3rd, Seattle hosted the 11th annual Emerald City Comicon, an event that has ballooned in size to an almost unwieldy horde of nerds, freaks, geeks and cool kids. On the strength of its celebrity guests and its massive hall of comic book writers and artists, with a heavy bent on the independent scene, for one weekend, the Con takes over downtown Seattle.

For awhile now, it’s been clear that the Con is not just for the periphery, for those that toil in their parents’ basement subsisting on Mountain Dew and WoW (though they’re welcome). The Con has become mainstream, for better and worse, and is a family event that appeals to nigh every demographic.

This year, after two years volunteering behind (and »
