New Masters of the Universe Series

While Sony Pictures is currently getting a new Masters of the Universe movie together, there’s another treat in store for fans who have been anxious to head back to Eternia. Filmmaker Kevin Smith announced at Power-Con that he will act as executive producer and showrunner on a new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series at Netflix that will pick up where the original series left off back in 1985.

Super Mario Bros Blu-Ray

Super Mario Bros. The Movie is one of the weirdest and most mystifying major studio releases of all-time. In an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the Nintendo video game franchise of the same name, Hollywood Pictures and Buena Vista Pictures, the movie brought the game to life in one of the most perplexing fashions, trying to shoehorn as many references to the original game as possible in a nonsensical way. The result was a dimension-hopping blockbuster bomb, and believe it or not, there’s more of it we haven’t seen yet. Read More »

Black Panther 2 Update and Black Widow Cast Addition

Even though Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn’t include Black Panther 2, we know that there are plans behind the scenes to get the sequel off the ground at some point. Though we’re still very much in the dark about where the sequel will take the African superhero next, we do know at least one cast member who will return from the first movie, and they’re not even from Wakanda. Martin Freeman will return as CIA Agent Everett Ross for the sequel

Meanwhile, Black Widow will be the first movie that officially kicks off Phase Four next year, and even though the project has been filming for a couple months now, we’re just now getting word about them bringing in a massive new cast member who will likely be quite the formidable threat for Scarlett Johansson.

Find out more about this Black Panther update and Black Widow cast addition below. Read More »

Peter Fonda Dead

The films of the 1960s and early 1970s broke so many of the conventional rules of filmmaking, and they reinvigorated cinema with a creative edge that would change the landscape of Hollywood for decades to come. Right at the center of it all was Peter Fonda, the star, co-writer and producer of Easy Rider, one of the most rebellious and influential films of all-time. Sadly, this counterculture icon has died at 79 years old after a battle with lung cancer. Read More »

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week, we acquaint ourselves to a musician dancing to the beat of different pianist, deal with family drama, bend reality a smidge, try to escape the Taliban, and go on a bougie holiday. Read More »
