At the end of this week’s Elseworlds, the three-part event unfolding across The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl, The CW’s crossover continuity teased a major event straight out of DC comics. It’s been hinted at ever since The Flash debuted in 2014 and now it’s official: the 1985-86 landmark Crisis on Infinite Earths will finally make its way to screens in the Fall of 2019. What’s more, everything these shows have been doing for the last few years, including and especially this recent event, justifies it in spades.

Last night, the Arrowverse crossover event Elseworlds came to an end, and it concluded with a tease of another threat yet to come to the comic book universe shared by Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

I sat down last night at the screening of Mortal Engines, and had just about no idea what to expect. Greeted only by a bland, vague tagline and a pair of glaring blue eyes staring out from the screen, I wondered, “What is this movie all about?” The bland, vague tagline should have been enough of a hint. What unfolded once the lights went down was a film so in search of an identity of its own that it simply scavenged from the remnants of other, far more accomplished genre and/or fantasy stories. There are flashes of a smart, sometimes quite sweetly emotional story here, but Mortal Engines is mostly inert and uninspired. It’s a particularly disappointing mix, considering that the screenwriters are none other than Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Peter Jackson, who once brought the Lord of the Rings trilogy to life.

Once Upon a Deadpool hopes to be a Deadpool for a wider audience during the holiday season, featuring a heavily edited PG-13 version of Deadpool 2. But is there anyone even slightly interested in such an idea? Even with the bonus incentive of a portion of the proceeds going to charity, this last-minute cash-grab fails to justify its existence.

One of the most beloved pop culture artists is Tyler Stout. His unique detailed style is a favorite among collectors, but the artist rarely produces new work to be sold to the masses, so whenever he chooses to release a piece, it’s kind of a big deal. However, his latest screenprint is a little more obscure than you might expect.
Tyler Stout has created a print for True Romance, the 1993 romantic crime film directed by Tony Scott and written by Quentin Tarantino, using his signature style that fans can recognize anywhere. Check out the full print and get details on the price, different versions and edition sizes below. Read More »
