Justice League Dark Director

Last week, DC Comics fans were given a bit of bad news as it was reported that director Doug Liman became yet another filmmaker to walk away from the adaptation of the long-gestating Justice League Dark. Since Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment don’t want to waste any time getting this movie together as part of their growing DC Extended Universe, they’re already on the hunt for a filmmaker to replace him, and there are a few options on the table.

Not long after news of Doug Liman dropping the position of Justice League Dark director, we learned that Stephen King’s It remake director Andy Muschietti was on the studio’s list to possible replace him, and now another surprising candidate has just surfaced as well. Read More »

Twin Peaks review part 3 and 4

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

Last week, Showtime unveiled the two-part premiere of Twin Peaks (or Twin Peaks: The Return, as it’s being called on their website). The premium channel dropped parts 3 and 4 online immediately afterwards, and then aired those back to back on the traditional channel last night, marking the final time until September’s season finale that they’ll release two parts in a row on a Sunday evening.

Ahead, we dive into the best scenes of parts 3 and 4, including Cooper’s trip through space and the jaw-dropping introduction of a new character named Wally Brando.

pixar experimental shorts

Pixar has a problem.

It’s a problem that’s well-detailed in The Atlantic article, “Did Disney Ruin Pixar?” which proposes that the once-great animation studio has reached the end of its golden age, weighed down by halfhearted sequels and poorly received original films. But maybe with the recent announcement of a new experimental shorts division, Pixar can recapture the spirit of its early days and make a comeback.

lemon scented you review

(Each week, we’ll kick off our discussion of American Gods by answering one simple question: which character do we worship this week?)

Last week gave us a taste of mortal malaise, but this week we return to the pantheon. American Gods continues to give answers at the price of a hundred new questions, as ‘Lemon Scented You’ offers us a seat in the war room for the first negotiations between the Old Gods and the New. As Laura Moon comes head-to-head with the unlucky Mad Sweeney and Mr. Wednesday comes head-to-head with Mr. World, we finally learn the nature of the storm.

John Williams a cappella tribute

It’s graduation season, and though we’ve already seen one spectacular musical performance as part of Will Ferrell’s outstanding commencement speech for this year’s graduates at the University of Southern California, we have a new favorite moment from this year’s round of college grads.

Over at Harvard University, John Williams was given an honorary doctorate in music for his lifelong work as a composer of motion picture scores. To honor the man who has brought us countless memorable themes, Harvard’s a cappella group Din and Tonics gave him a musical tribute featuring a medley of some of his most famous pieces, including the themes for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Jaws and more.

Terminator 2 Remake in Grand Theft Auto V

Since it’s Memorial Day, a lot of people are enjoying an extended weekend. Whether you’re one of those people chilling out at home or stuck at work trying to kill some time as everyone else outside the office has fun, we have a good way to kill some time.

Someone with a massive amount of time on their hands decided to recreate Terminator 2: Judgment Day in its entirety by using a modded version of the video game Grand Theft Auto V. It’s surprisingly well done, and for those who don’t have the time to sit through all of the real film’s running time, this version is only an hour long and still hits all the finer points of the film.

Logan Lucky trailer

Steven Soderbergh‘s “anti-glam Ocean’s 11” looks, to put it simply, like a blast. Based on the first footage from Logan Lucky, which arrived over the weekend, Daniel Craig‘s performance alone as Joe Bang may be worth the price of admission. We haven’t seen Craig quite like this before, and the same can be said for the rest of the stellar cast in Soderbergh’s blessed return to filmmaking.

Below, watch the Logan Lucky trailer.

Deadpool Blooper Reel

The big screen adaptation of the Marvel Comics title Deadpool was already pretty raunchy when the R-rated action comedy hit theaters early in 2016, but it turns out there was plenty more filthiness from Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth that we didn’t get to see.

Deadpool was a highly improvised movie that allowed Ryan Reynolds to ad lib a bunch of his lines, and the result is endless alternate takes and jokes, many of which didn’t end up in the final movie for one reason or another. Thankfully, a Deadpool blooper reel gives us plenty of those alternate takes along with some of the flubs that were made on set during production.

Wonder Woman TV Spots - Gal Gadot

Wonder Woman doesn’t hit theaters until the end of the week, but fans are already wondering (no pun intended) if the film will follow suit from the previous DC Extended Universe releases of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad by having alternate cuts available on home video. The good news is, the movie that we’ll see in theaters in under a week is the only cut of the movie that will ever exist, the potential bad news is that means there aren’t really any deleted scenes we’ll be seeing.

Director Patty Jenkins recently talked about how the long journey to get Wonder Woman on the big screen resulted in a rather finely tuned movie that didn’t require much retooling in the editing room, at least when it comes to cutting scenes. Furthermore, the director also discussed preparations that might be underway to get a sequel off the ground.
