Visual Guide to Marvel Character Movie Rights Infographic

Why isn’t Spider-Man allowed to join The Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Why won’t we ever see “Mutants” in the Marvel movies? Why can’t the Fantastic Four meet the X-Men on the big screen? The answer to these questions is that the Marvel character movie rights are owned by different studios who are (so far) uninterested in working together. Artist Maurice Mitchell of The Geek Twins (found via LaughingSquid) has created “The Visual Guide to Marvel Character Movie Rights” Infographic which illustrates the current state of the Marvel movie universe, divided by which studios own the rights to which Marvel characters.

the history of horror movies video
Filmmaker IQ has published another one of their long-form video essays. This 30-minute Film School lesson teaches you the history of horror movies “from it’s roots deep in Gothic literature, through B-movie status and director’s proving grounds to ultimate respectability as an important filmmaking genre.”

The history of horror is a vast and perhaps foolhardy thing to tackle. No matter how hard you try, there are films and horror subgenres that will slide through the cracks.. But horror is somewhat unique among the film genres in that there is a recognizable pattern that happens again and again. A film will come along and terrify an audience capturing their imaginations and making bank- Filmmakers flock to the cash cow like vampires to blood which leads to sequels and imitators – sometimes better than the original. But eventually the sequels run out of steam and the subgenre created by the original smash hit fades into memory lurking in the corners of history waiting to be rediscovered and reborn- this process is commonly referred to as cycles. Although other genres behave similarly, the unique appeal of horror from its low budget requirements to broad multinational appeal, make horror especially susceptible to these boom and fade cycles. But as we look at how the genre changes over time, we must not think of the history of horror as being a rigid one way street. New films borrow from old films all the time, a constant remix of subgenres and new techniques to make something for the contemporary culture.

Turbo Kid review

Turbo Kid is insane. It’s remarkable that a film like this was produced at all. Imagine what a movie might look like if it came from the mind of a ten-year old kid from the ’80s who is obsessed with Mega Man, and who just saw the Mad Max movies for the first time. Take a step further, and picture the film, if it was produced by a competent team of filmmakers with a budget affording that kid access to a good team to create practice special effects and makeup.

Of course, Turbo Kid wasn’t brought into the world under those circumstances, but it certainly feels like it — and that is the highest compliment I can give this movie. Read our Turbo Kid review after the jump.
