Activision Finally Announces the Spyro Reignited Trilogy

  • Cinelinx
After months of leaks and rumors, Activision has finally officially announced a remastered trilogy for everyone's favorite purple dragon, Spyro! Since an announcement likely wouldn't have been enough, they also included a trailer and release date!

When go through video game lore, there are characters that have stood the test of time, that people still have fond memories about. Mario would likely come to mind for most, but Spyro the Dragon had a deep impact on my video game education. I remember growing up in Greece, I had to go to a video game shop to play all the latest video games. Unlike in America where you could rent out games for days, you could only play for about an hour. The game I spent the most time with was Spyro.

Spyro the Dragon is one of my all-time favorite platformers because it allowed gamers to fly, breath fire, be a Dragon.

Oscar Race Is the Year of the Character Actress

Oscar Race Is the Year of the Character Actress
Ask Melissa Leo about the challenges of being a “character actor” and she’ll respond with a hearty laugh.

“Because I get hired at the last minute my moniker for myself is ‘Last-Minute Leo.’ They call me in when they don’t know what else to do,” Leo says. She adds that it’s “a badge of honor.”

Actors who have the “character” label may not always land magazine covers (or want them, frankly), but a number of lauded actresses known for getting lost in their roles are dominating this particular awards season with a vengeance. The legendary Frances McDormand (four Oscar noms and one win) in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is one of them, Lesley Manville in “Phantom Thread” is another. And of course Leo, who won an Oscar for her role in “The Fighter.”

In the 1960s period drama “Novitiate,” Leo pays a Reverend Mother whose world is turned upside down by new reforms

Canon Of Film: ‘Paris, Texas’

This week, we will be looking at Wim Wenders‘ classic, ‘Paris, Texas‘ in honor of Harry Dean Stanton, who recently passed. For the genesis of Canon Of Film, you can click here.

Paris, Texas (1984)

Director: Wim Wenders

Screenplay: Sam Shepard, adapted by L.M. Kit Carson

As much as I admire the leader of the New German cinema movement of the sixties and seventies, R.W. Fassbinder, and as much as I admire, probably the best and most important director in that movement Werner Herzog, if I actually had to pick a favorite New German Director, and one of my favorite directors of all-time, it’d have to be Wim Wenders. I rank his film ‘Wings of Desire‘ among the Ten best films ever made, and all his films–even his less-than-stellar ones–all have this intuit sense to them. It’s not empathy; it’s almost spiritual. While Herzog is constantly

Is Riz Ahmed Playing Chameleon in Venom and Silver and Black?
Sony recently announced the release date for Spider-Man spin-off Silver and Black. Now it seems that Riz Ahmed may be featured in both it and Venom, possibly starring as Chameleon. It was recently reported that Rogue One star Riz Ahmed is in talks to join the cast of Sony's Venom. Now a new report suggests that he'll also show up in Silver and Black. Since Ahmed is rumored to be in both of the spin-offs, which character is he going to play?

When it was announced that Riz Ahmed was in talks for Venom, many began to speculate that he was going to be playing the villainous Carnage, but it appears that he may be an entirely different character if the rumors of the actor joining the cast of Silver and Black are true.

Spider-Man: Homecoming villain reportedly confirmed for Sony’s Silver & Black

Despite the best efforts of Amy Pascal to convince us otherwise, Marvel’s Kevin Feige has made several statements confirming that Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoffs will not exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, if rumours are to be believed, that isn’t going to stop Sony from potentially linking the spinoffs to Spider-Man: Homecoming, with The Hashtag Show reportedly confirming the previous rumours that Mac Gargan, a.k.a. the Scorpion, is set to feature in the Silver Sable / Black Cat movie Silver & Black.

Gargan was portrayed by Michael Mando in Spider-Man: Homecoming, although it’s not yet clear whether he’ll reprise his role for Silver & Black. Depending which way this goes will presumably finally give us clarification one way or another as to whether Sony intends on having the spinoffs existing in the same reality as Homecoming.

In addition to Scorpion, the rumour also claims that Mendel Stromm/Gaunt,

The Sea Chase

John Wayne plays a German sea captain in a film that goes out of its way to create a favorable image of our former enemy, with hardly a Nazi flag or even a German accent in sight. Wayne and his co-star Lana Turner are as Teutonic as Blondie and Dagwood, yet the film works as a basic adventure – we like the charismatic star, and the sea chase format guarantees extra interest.
