(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Stranger Things 3.)
When Netflix provided me with screeners to review Stranger Things 3, they included a laundry list of spoilers that could not, under any circumstance, be mentioned in the review. As a rule, I try to avoid any and all spoilers in a general review, but this list was daunting to say the least. Now, the cat is out of the bag. Stranger Things 3 dropped on July 4, and I’m guessing if you’re reading this, you went ahead and binged the entire season over the holiday weekend. That means its time to head back to Hawkins, and delve into the details that Netflix was so hellbent on keeping a secret.
Spoilers follow – obviously.

The latest season of Stranger Things got into the post-credit game with an unexpected scene that brought back an unexpected character and hinted at the fate of another. The moment comes as a big surprise – if you’re not waiting for it, you might even end up turning the show off before the scene arrives. But just what is up with that Stranger Things 3 post-credit scene? And what does it say about the future?

David Harbour has more than Stranger Things hitting Netflix this month. The actor also stars in Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein, a truly strange mockumentary in which Harbour plays himself, and also his own father. Harbour sets out to gain insight into his father by studying a TV production of Frankenstein unlike any created before. Watch the Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein trailer below.

The kids of Hawkins, Indiana aren’t really kids anymore. Demogorgons and other slimy monsters are plenty scary, but not nearly as scary as the passage of time. In Stranger Things 3, the third season of Netflix’s mega-hit series, characters who once seemed so childish and young are on the cusp of young adulthood, and facing down the future. “One summer can change anything” says the tagline for the season, and it’s an apt description. After a lackluster, slipshod second season, Stranger Things roars back more exciting, and emotional than ever, with a third season that moves things forward at a thrilling pace, and sweeps us along with it.

The Hellboy reboot arrived in theaters in April, and it was gone in a flash. The R-rated reboot of the Dark Horse comics hero starring David Harbour pulled in $21.9 million at the box office, less than half of the $50 million it cost to make the movie. Based on that, pretty much no one thought a sequel would be following. But just to be sure, someone asked David Harbour to confirm as much. It should come as no surprise that Harbour doesn’t really see that coming together anytime soon, if at all. Read More »
Remember the Hellboy remake? It’s okay if you don’t, because everyone seemed hated it, and it bombed at the box office. Now, a few months removed from the release date, star David Harbour is opening up about the film’s failure. Sort of. In an attempt to remain diplomatic, the actor has compared Hellboy to chocolate, offering a somewhat muddled analogy.

The new Hellboy movie is currently sitting at a miserable 12% on Rotten Tomatoes. Our review calls it “one of the worst comic book movies ever made.” When that level of negative buzz swirls around a movie, it’s inevitable that stories will begin to emerge which attempt to lay the blame at someone else’s feet – because if there’s one thing that’s remained true in Hollywood since its earliest days, it’s that nobody is going to willingly accept blame if it can be shuffled off elsewhere.
So in the wake of such a poor critical reception, it’s not surprising that a new report has arrived detailing some production troubles on the Hellboy set, including claims that the producers attempted to undermine director Neil Marshall (one of the producer’s attorneys denies this), star David Harbour butted heads with Marshall, and more.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Lionsgate is making sure Hellboy is a movie that will be seared onto your eyeballs, and your eardrums.

On top of that, our the first listen of the Hellboy music score composed by Benjamin Wallfisch is out on the interwebs, and it is literal fire. Read More »
Hellboy arrives next weekend, and we’re not so sure the movie has the goods to get audiences into theater in the way that Lionsgate is hoping. Sure, the presence of David Harbour as Hellboy might be appealing to a certain sect of Stranger Things fans, but otherwise, this looks far less stylish and impressive than what director Guillermo del Toro already did with the Dark Horse comic book property.
If you need anymore convincing that the audience awareness for Hellboy a boost, Lionsgate has debuted what they call an R-rated sizzle reel, which is basically a short red band trailer. The whole point of this tease is to tout all the blood and gore that will be on display, not to mention dropping some salty language. Watch the bloody Hellboy trailer below. Read More »
