good omens review

The road to a good screen adaptation of a beloved book is paved with good intentions, but often littered with bad executions. But if a show were made of pure good intentions, it would be Amazon’s Good Omens, which is a show eager — even desperate — to do justice to its source material. And thanks to the delightfully absurd performances by stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen and an irreverent Monty Python-inspired touch from director Douglas Mackinnon, it just about succeeds.

When you think of Armaggedon, the first thought is of death, destruction, and the sinister Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. And while all of those are present in Good Omens, Amazon’s upcoming fantasy-comedy series based on the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel of the same name is going to introduce all of those things with a twinkle in its eye. That’s including the Antichrist at the center of this whole end-of-the-earth thing, who happens to be an angelic-looking 11-year-old boy who only dreams of spaceships and hell.

The heavens truly are blessing us today: The first Good Omens trailer is here.

The Amazon Prime series finally brings the acclaimed Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel to life, and there’s no one better to headline the dark comedy than David Tennant and Michael Sheen.

Apostle Review

Stepping out of his signature style of riveting action-thrillers, Gareth Evans delivers a delightfully diabolic tale centered around a religious cult in his new film, Apostle. The Welsh filmmaker is known primarily for his fight choreography by way of Indonesian martial arts, yet he presents audiences a slower, more atmospheric horror story filled with a menacing score that supports the brutal mentality and withered imagery of the early 1900s.

Slaughterhouse Rulez trailer

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been collaborating for decades, from the British TV series Spaced to director Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy and the Greg Mottola alien comedy Paul. But now the beloved duo have formed Stolen Picture, and they’re both co-starring in the new production company’s debut film called Slaughterhouse Rulez. It’s a cheesy-looking horror comedy that sort of looks like what might happen if Harry Potter stepped into the world of Attack the Block. But lower your expectations, because that combination suggests a level of quality that is sadly lacking in this new trailer.

Iron Man 3 Female Villain

Guy Pearce is no stranger to playing shady scientists conducting mysterious experiments on soldiers in comic book movies. After all, he played that part to sleazy perfection in Iron Man 3. So it’s no wonder that he’s been cast in a similar role in Sony’s upcoming comic book adaptation Bloodshot, replacing original actor Michael Sheen.
