I'll just get this out of the way in the beginning. If you were coming to this with the expectation that it would pick up right where Sam Raimi's dancing, emo Spider-Man left off then you will not be happy.…
“…Along with the mind-blowing cinematography, fun on-the-edge-of-your-seat scenes and interesting characters, there is a pretty gnarly part which provoked me to leave the theatre for a minute to get some fresh air. Yep. I almost passed out. I can handle horror movies and icky violence, but this particular scene struck a phobia chord. However, even with the onset of sweaty lightheadedness, I still think the scene was done well. When I looked at the faces of people around me, I could tell they were stunned, jaws clenched and brows furrowed. A few had even covered their eyes…”
As the title indicates, this movie has a main plot line involving both Snow White and the dubious Huntsman. However, the real star of this movie is the queen. Charlize Theron embodies all that is wicked, but in a sympathetic and majestic way. Her beauty and talent for making you believe- more than that, understand why she is so evil really carries this film.
This week Bioware hosted a screening of Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker in San Francisco and other locations. I’ll admit, I had no idea this movie was going to be even shown in theaters, much less anywhere where near I live. So, I braved rush hour on the Bay Bridge and headed into the city to take a peek.
A movie called “The Woman in Black” appeared in my Direct TV queue the other day and because of my unnatural obsession with all things paranormal, there was little I could do to combat its pull. Now, before you get all “OMG, I can’t believe you didn’t know about it” or “Ugh, isn’t that the one with Harry Potter not being Harry Potter” on me, hear me out. This film was quite good. Yes, it can be difficult to see Daniel Radcliffe as anything other than the brooding kid with glasses and an owl, but the way the movie progressed from first conflict to denouement was outstanding. I literally screamed at a couple key points in between, so the thrill factor was certainly present.
Believe it or not, somewhere one Earth Marvel’s Ant man is somebody’s favorite Avenger. With Avenger mania sweeping the planet (and draining wallets everywhere) Marvel Studios is fully aware that Ant Man has the potential to be HUGE (see what I did there). Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright will soon be bringing us the misadventures of Hank Pym, also known as the Ant Man. Considering Mr. Wright has consitantly given us cinematic gold, we have high hopes for the Ant Man franchise. Now, last we heard there is no solid plan to bring Edgar Wright’s Ant Man into the current Avengers film universe, but if we whine enough we may get our way. More importantly however are the following questions. Who exactly is the Ant Man? And, who is the perfect actor to portray the super genius Hank Pym?
No not nudity you pervs. But let me warn you, yargh, there be spoilers ahead. I am highly anticipating this movie, and in a blockbuster summer schedule that includes a Ridley Scott alien epic, a new Nolan Batman, a Whedon…
Yes, a new Dark Knight Rises trailer is upon us. What can we gleam from it? Christopher Nolan likes to work with the same actors over and over again. Oh, you mean plot wise? Well it seems that Joseph Gorgon…
So there you have it! After a ton of amusing videos and some great guerrilla campaigning our buddy Brea Grant’s upcoming feature film Best Friends Forever met its 75,000.00 kickstarter goal! As we promised on Twitter, if you happened to donate some of your hard earned shillings to the Best Friends Forever’s kickstarter campaign AND happen to be in San Diego this for Comic Con International, then we owe you some pizza pie!
Since we last posted about our buddy Brea Grant’s upcoming feature film Best Friends Forever, their kickstarter campaign has picked up a lot steam with donations from all around the world. With only SIX days left, they need a bit more of our help to cover post-production costs (they shot on expensive 16mm). As you guys are probably well aware, if the goal of 75K isn’t met, all of the funding goes *poof*.
That’s right, Brea is working on her directorial debut Best Friends Forever, and she needs our help finish it up. Shot on glorious 16mm fim, a rarity in our digital age, BFF won’t be cheap to finish, but the final product will sure look pretty.
