Smallfoot Trailer

Hello, everyone. I’d like to introduce you to the family film Smallfoot. It’s about a Yeti who goes on a quest to discover if humans really exist. Sounds cute, right? Also, it stars Channing Tatum. But don’t get too excited: you won’t be seeing his abs and dancing skills. Because this film is animated. Sorry, you’ll just have to use your imagination. The Smallfoot trailer is below.

incredibles 2 box office

Audiences have been waiting for Incredibles 2 for over a decade. And perhaps it was worth the wait, at least from a financial standpoint. Early Incredibles 2 box office tracking suggests the film might result in one of Pixar’s biggest opening weekends.

black panther reviews

(Welcome to Road to Infinity War, a new series where we revisit the first 18 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask “How did we get here?” In this edition: we reach our conclusion with Black Panther, a film that finds Marvel reaching its optimum.)

The final stop on the Road to Infinity War is Black Panther, a sprawling superhero epic the likes of which American cinema has never seen. It’s still cleaning house at the global box office just days before its follow-up (a nine-franchise culmination to the Marvel saga), and it’s one of the most important pieces of the Marvel puzzle. Not necessarily in terms of overall narrative – the film is relatively isolated from sixteen of its seventeen predecessors – but rather, as a potentially landscape-shifting benchmark for mainstream filmmaking.

While it’s hard to measure a film’s long-term legacy in just its third month of release, it’s safe to assume that no American film since Marvel’s own The Avengers has had this seismic an impact. Black Panther has flown past all critical and financial expectations (and then some), completing Marvel’s third act turn of stepping outside the norms of Western storytelling – as seen in Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok – albeit to a much more significant degree. It builds on all the tricks of Marvel movies past, dipping its toes in the familiar before transforming the visual and thematic language of the superhero movie entirely. It’s what happens when a studio places its trust in a creative team uniquely suited to the story, and it’ll probably result in other studios taking similar risks on Black filmmakers and other filmmakers of colour, redefining who gets to hold the megaphone of mainstream cinema.

The long-held executive myth that black stars can’t open big movies feels like it’s all but gone, and who knows what other myths will crumble in the years to come.

lady death marvel

A huge motivator for Thanos’ reign of destruction is the Mad Titan’s obsession with Death. Death, that is. In the Marvel comics, the manifestation of death is an on-again, off-again girlfriend of Thanos, and the reason that he seeks out the Infinity Gauntlet — so that he can destroy half the universe and earn her attention and affection once and for all.

But Thanos will have a different backstory in Avengers: Infinity War, according to co-director Joe Russo. And Death will not be a part of that motivation.

The Incredible Hulk Honest Trailer

This weekend brings Avengers: Infinity War to theaters, and it’s been a 10-year journey to get to his epic crossover of half a dozen comic book movie franchises. Though Marvel Studios might have the Marvel Cinematic Universe sorted out now, when they first started back in 2008, it was a bit of a mess, as evidenced by the totally forgettable and disposable events of The Incredible Hulk.

Watch The Incredible Hulk Honest Trailer if you’re looking for a window into 10 years ago when Easter eggs were merely little nerdy references to keep hardcore fans satisfied without laying the groundwork for a whole slate of movies in the years to come. Or watch it if you’re just looking for some jabs to be thrown at one of the worst movies in the MCU. Read More »

cowboy bebop

April 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Shinichiro Watanabe’s anime series Cowboy Bebop. I, like millions of Americans in the late ’90s, discovered Cowboy Bebop on Cartoon Network’s run of Toonami, where the network would showcase a sampling of Japan’s best animation. From Sailor Moon to Gundam Wing they would play the anime that would influence a generation and fans and creators alike.

Cowboy Bebop was one of those animes. Airing late at night, Cowboy Bebop became an instant favorite for me and my sister. We shared a room and we would watch as Spike, Jet, Faye, Edward, and Ein traversed the universe and wrangled up some bounties, all while telling their tragic backstories. Cowboy Bebop indeed broke the mold on what anime could be for American audiences, paving the way for revolutionary storytelling and iconic visuals that would be copied for years to come.
