Guardians of the Galaxy review

I’m still trying to figure out how Guardians of the Galaxy works. It’s a movie set in an unfamiliar universe, it introduces several new characters with diverse backstories on numerous worlds, and features a talking raccoon, a fighting tree, familial death, and multiple villains, all set to seventies and eighties pop music. On paper, there’s no way the movie should work. But not only did writer/director James Gunn find the perfect mix to make it work, Guardians of the Galaxy soars. All of those elements marry each other just right to tell a singular, direct and entertaining story. Along the way there’s room for jaw-dropping and innovative action, beautiful visuals, robust characterizations and more laughs than probably all the other Marvel movies combined. Yes, Marvel has another winner in Guardians of the Galaxy. Read the rest of our Guardians of the Galaxy review below. Read More »

Simon Pegg won’t appear in Star Wars Episode VII, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be part of the film in some other way. In a recent interview, Pegg continued to say what he’s always said about the film. He’s a huge fan, he’s friends with writer director J.J. Abrams, he’s visited the set, but him appearing would take people out of the movie. So he continues to say he won’t be on screen in Episode VII. But he also won’t, and hasn’t, said that he’s not in the movie at all, which is now leading to speculation the Shaun of the Dead actor might provide some kind of voice or performance capture where his face wouldn’t be an issue.

Dragonriders of Pern movie

If I had to name one fantasy or sci-fi book series that I can’t believe hasn’t been turned into a film or TV series yet, it would be Anne McCaffrey‘s Dragonriders of Pern. Actually, I did say this, and not even that long ago. The Pern books are a strange blend of fantasy and sci-fi, filled with great, well-defined characters, politics and scheming, and giant telepathic dragons. It’s stuff that might have been a hard sell ten years ago. In the wake of Game of Thrones and so many other sci-fi and fantasy successes on TV and in film, the time is right. And Warner Bros. has just optioned all of it.  Read More »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Poster header 2

The phrase “epic fail” may not be as fashionable as it once was, but sometimes it really is the only way to express just how horribly something has gone wrong. Case in point: Can you come up with a better way to describe a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster that combines exploding building imagery and a 9/11 release date? Yeah, didn’t think so.

Gawk at the controversial Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 9/11 poster the jump.

Atari Game Over trailer

In 1983 Atari dumped a ton of unsold E.T. video game cartridges in a New Mexico landfill. That’s s documented fact, but one that is strange enough that it took on the allure of urban legend. Last year a company excavated that landfill as part of a documentary on the fall of Atari and the early ’80s video game industry. The results have been seen in photos, but now you can see video, thanks to the Atari: Game Over trailer. Watch below. Read More »

Maze Runner Poster header

That new trailer wasn’t the only Maze Runner item to hit the ‘net in the past few hours. Nine new Maze Runner posters, most of them created by artists outside the marketing department, were released. They really sell the scope of this story, which is based on a novel by James Dashner and directed by Wes Ball.

In the film, a young man named Thomas  (Dylan O’Brien of MTV’s Teen Wolf) finds himself in The Glade. That’s a mysterious open space in the center of a massive maze, with seemingly no way out. As he and many other young guys try and figure out what’s going on, the game changes when Teresa (Kaya Scodelario of Skins) arrives. Not only is she the first girl, she has memories of who Thomas was in his life before the Glade.

You can see lots of that and more in the trailer and fans loved the movie. Plus, Fox teased a potential sequel a month before release. So things are looking good for The Maze Runner, and these posters look good too. Check out the new Maze Runner posters below. Read More »
