Donkeyhead Review: Agam Darshi’s Directorial Debut Reconciles Cultural Tradition with Personal Identity

Donkeyhead Review: Agam Darshi’s Directorial Debut Reconciles Cultural Tradition with Personal Identity
You see it often. The “successful” children leave to start families of their own and the so-called “donkeys” (or khotas in the case of this Punjabi household) are left caring for the parents that were hard enough on them to make the level of compassion necessary to do so tough to understand. Mona (Agam Darshi) was the black sheep in many ways growing up. She was the artistic type. The rebel. The “lesser” twin. Growing up in a Sikh home with a demanding father (Marvin Ishmael) and more pliable and obedient siblings meant discipline, screaming, and beatings. So why did she stay? Why nurse him through seven years of cancer? Love is complicated.

So too is Darshi’s directorial debut Donkeyhead. Her Mona is a failed writer (the details of which come out during the course of the film) living at home with her ailing father, desperate to finally win his affection.

Arrowverse Fans Are Divided Over Stephen Amell’s Spectre

“Crisis on Infinite Earths” finally returns to our screens in less than a week, with the final two parts of the ginormous Arrowverse crossover airing on The CW next Tuesday. To mark its arrival, the network released a new poster for the event a couple of days ago that gave us our first look at Oliver Queen in his latest guise. Once again, he’s had to become something else, someone else. No, not the Green Arrow, but supernatural superhero the Spectre.

The merging of the Emerald Archer and the avenging spirit has been a highly anticipated development of the climax of “Crisis,” but now that we’ve seen him in costume as the Spectre, not all fans are blown away by his look. Sure, it’s awesome that Ollie’s alive again, but couldn’t they have made his new suit a bit… better?

Crisis On Infinite Earths Poster Reveals First Look At Stephen Amell’s Spectre

After a month’s break, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is finally set to return in exactly one week’s time. And ahead of the conclusion of the mega DC TV event, The CW has now dropped yet another poster for the crossover.

As well as bringing the Arrowverse’s heroes together, it’s most notable for giving us our first look at Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen in his new guise as the Spectre. Overlooking the Super-Friends, meanwhile, is the evil Anti-Monitor (Lamonica Garrett).

Under his right arm, we have Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh), Dreamer (Nicole Maines), Heatwave (Dominic Purcell) and Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer). Beneath his other arm, there’s Frost (Danielle Panabaker), Martian Manhunter (David Harewood), Diggle (David Ramsey), Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Ryan Choi (Osric Chau) and Atom (Brandon Routh). Then, at the front of the group are the leading heroes: White Canary

New Crisis On Infinite Earths Promo Teases Oliver Queen’s Return

The very first episode of “Crisis on Infinite Earths” killed off Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen, with the Emerald Archer sacrificing his life in order to save a million extra people from the dying Earth-38. However, this being the DC universe, it’s likely not the end of the Green Arrow. Something that’s heavily teased in this new trailer for Part 4, which arrives on The CW in a few weeks.

The 30-second promo sets up the high-stakes new status quo: with just a handful of heroes still alive in the multiverse, they’re now giving the evil Anti-Monitor (Lamonica Garrett) all they’ve got. And, somehow, they’ll be joined by the late Oliver. In one clip, we see him throwing punch after punch at an unknown enemy – this doesn’t seem to be the Anti-Monitor, either – with the voiceover featuring the vigilante saying: “My entire life prepared me for this fight.

Crisis On Infinite Earths To Feature At Least Six Surprise Characters

There’s been some discussion from fans about whether too much has been revealed in the run-up to “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” With the Arrowverse crossover due to see the entire multiverse at threat, many iconic faces from across DC history are dropping by for either key supporting roles or cameos. A significant number have been already officially confirmed, too, which has left some upset that these surprises have been spoiled.

But maybe we don’t have anything to worry about, as Ep Marc Guggenheim has now promised that there’s plenty more where they came from. In an interview with IndieWire, the producer revealed that there are at least six surprise characters involved in the first three episodes of the event alone that fans have no idea about.

“I like how there are at least six characters who appear in the first three hours that we haven’t announced.

First Look At Jim Corrigan In Crisis On Infinite Earths

Not only will “Crisis on Infinite Earths” be bringing together virtually every familiar face in the Arrowverse, but it’ll also introduce a couple of new heroes, as well. Osric Chau is joining the franchise, for instance, as Ryan Choi Aka the second Atom, while Stephen Lobo is also being brought on board to play cop Jim Corrigan, who’s destined to become the supernatural superhero the Spectre. Speaking of which, The CW has just revealed our first look at the character.

Around since the Golden Age, Corrigan’s story usually involves him being murdered on the job and then resurrected when he becomes the host for an all-powerful spirit of vengeance known as the Spectre. This image only shows us Corrigan in his human form, so it seems as if he’s not the Spectre by the time “Crisis” begins. However, the odds are high that he’ll perish

Supernatural Alum Stephen Lobo Cast As The Spectre For Crisis On Infinite Earths

Though the inclusion of the Spectre in the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event should’ve been obvious to all, it’s not something I’d really thought much about until this week. After all, one can’t be too sure of which DC Comics characters The CW will gain license to, but now we know we’ll be given yet another nod to the rich source material.

Earlier this week, Arrow star Stephen Amell dropped a cryptic Tweet causing some to speculate that he would indeed wind up playing the Spectre himself. As it turns out, we didn’t need to wait very long at all for the matter to be cleared up, for another actor has landed the gig.

To be more specific, Stephen Lobo has been cast as Jim Corrigan, one of several identities of the Spectre in comic book lore. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim didn

Crisis on Infinite Earths Adds The Spectre

Jim Dandy Oct 16, 2019

Supernatural vet Stephen Lobo joins the Crisis as potentially one of its pivotal characters: the Spectre.

Big casting news out of the Crisis team, as it was announced today that Stephen Lobo of Supernatural fame would be joining the enormous CW DC crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths. His character is a very interesting choice.

According to IGN, Lobo will be playing Jim Corrigan. Corrigan was introduced in 1942, in the aptly named More Fun Comics, where he was murdered on his way to his own engagement party, stuffed in a barrel of concrete, and tossed in a river. He was sent back to Earth to exact vengance on his murderers and...wait a second is he just Spawn?

Corrigan later became a conduit for John Ostrander, one of the co-creators of the modern incarnation of the Suicide Squad and one of the most underrated comic writers of the last 30 years,

There are a plethora of really shitty movies based on video games being released each year. None of them holding a candle to the source material it is based on. However each and every time I get suckered in because I want to be impressed by these attempts, as a movie fan and a gamer I need to be impressed. And let’s be honest, the premise of the Dead Rising games is just about absurd enough to work as a movie and with this being the second outing well have they learnt.

Based on the worldwide smash-hit video game series, Dead Rising: Endgame is the sequel to last years
