This documentary takes an investigative look into accusations that online marketing giant Yelp! is running a mob-like extortion racket against business owners who refuse, or can't afford to pay-to-play.
Dark matter, which is unknown and undetectable in our physical models, would appear to populate the cosmos on a massive scale. For the first time, a film portrays the wild scientific quest that dark matter gives rise to - a real thriller!
Chris Claremont came to Marvel as a young man, and was assigned a book that no one else wanted, a book on the brink of cancellation: X-Men. Over the next 17 years, his work on the title turned it into the biggest franchise in comic book history. Forty years later, his work has been adapted into 10 films, three TV series, countless video games and become a part of our cultural mythology.
A piece of comic book history told in an entertaining way.
Before I was old enought to wonder about how comics were made, two names were engraved in my subconcious by seeing them in many covers of my favourite comics: Stan Lee and Chris Claremont.
When I was a bit older I started collecting the X-men comics in order. Those days, internet was still just and idea, and I couldn't search any information about those names. I couldn't put a face on them. But even teenage me didn't have any doubt: Claremont was a genious. He was the first writer that called my attention, before that, I felt the drawings were the "cool thing" about comics (as any kid, I guess).
This docummentary covers his career and influence, it reveals some of the company reasons why things happened the way they did, and some of the work process of many important moments in X-men history.
It's been years since I've picked an X-Men comic, but this documentary is an homage for a man that shaped some of the mythology of today's collective mind. He inspired many artists and influenced the way other people write comics and tell stories in general. He made people care about his characters as if they were not only real, but as if they were also close friends.
If you have read his work, you'll enjoy this film. If not. treat yourself to 200 or 300 of his comics, become friends with the X-Men, and then go and watch this.
The world would be different today if it wasn't for this guy. A big thanks to the people who brought us this docummentary.
