Comic Book Review – The Bloody Best of Lenore

2 hours ago

Calum Petrie reviews The Bloody Best of Lenore…

For those of you who may not be familiar with Lenore, this comic series of short stories is based loosely around the titular character. Lenore is a little girl who just happens to be dead, a la the poem by Edgar Alan Poe titled “Lenore”. The comic series has been in circulation since the late 90’s, with a “best of” graphic novel filled with her adventures being released today by Titan Comics.

The Bloody Best of Lenore features 17 short stories where the misadventures of this little dead girl can confuse, perplex and have a reader scratching their head if they had never encountered the character before. The off brand humour would appeal to the fans of Dave Firth web shorts (Salad Fingers, Salisbury Toast Boy); the humour in most stories comes from the randomness of the situation and how shocking the events »

Flickering Myth Film Class: How To Do An Ensemble Film

3 hours ago

In the latest instalment of Flickering Myth’s film class, Tom Jolliffe looks at how to pull off an ensemble film…

The art in pulling off the ensemble film. It’s a tricking balance. In the vast majority of cinema you may be limited to one or two clearly defined protagonists with a cast of supporting artists. On occasions though, a writer wants to create an ensemble piece. It may have one particular character who dominates the screen a little more than the others, but you could have four or more characters who share screen near equally.

How do you do it right? Well firstly, whether you have four characters, six, ten, or whatever, the most important element is to have clearly definable characters. You could call them archetypes certainly, but it is important to ensure that ‘character one’ is different from the rest. If you craft one character who »

Robbie has already worked with the directing pair on two films, Focus and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, so the rapport with the directors is already there for her.

Zack Snyder says he won’t be returning to help complete Justice League

4 hours ago

Despite rumors that he would be returning to the set of Justice League to assist Joss Whedon in finishing the film, it looks like Zack Snyder has stepped for good.  Speaking to Wired about his latest film Snow Steam Iron, a short film that he has shot entirely on an iPhone [watch the trailer here], the director provided an update in regards to where he stands with Justice League.

Snyder stressed that returning to production would be “unfair in a lot of ways” before going into further detail: “I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job. But I’ve kind of just let them do their thing.”

As we know, Zack Snyder decided to step down from directing duties following »

Matthew Vaughn wanted to make a young Wolverine movie before X-Men: Days of Future Past

5 hours ago

Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class breathed new life into a franchise in dire need of resuscitation after the fiasco that was Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand. By going back to where it all started, Vaughn was able to flesh out the stories of the series’ two cornerstone characters: Charles Xavier and Magneto. What resulted was a very satisfying film that focused a lot on character.

Strangely, after the success of X-Men: First Class, Matthew Vaughn opted out of any further sequels. One of the biggest reasons, of course, is that Bryan Singer wanted to take back control of the franchise. However, speaking to Uproxx, Vaughn reveals another surprising reason:

“The reason I haven’t done sequels in the past is they just weren’t exciting me. And on Days of Future Past, even though I co-wrote the bloody thing, the reason I bailed out of it is two things: First, »

Synopsis:

The true story of the 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs.

Long before Mayweather vs McGregor was a sporting showdown for the ages; a one-on-one matchup that actually occupied societal landscape-altering overtones for both the close-minded present-day perspectives and future generations. Billie Jean King taking on openly proud male chauvinistic pig Bobby Riggs in a 1973 tennis match wasn’t just a dog and pony show built on ego and superiority alone, it represented the gender equality war (everything from raw talent to short-changing women when it comes to payday »

Taika Waititi in talks to direct Akira adaptation

7 hours ago

As we approach the release of the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film Thor: Ragnarok, we may have an idea of what director Taika Waititi’s next big blockbuster project will be, as Deadline is reporting that he has entered talks with Warner Bros. to adapt the graphic novel series Akira into a live action feature film.

WB has been looking to make a Akira film for several years, but the project has remained in development hell for a long time. The series consists of six graphic novels which will apparently be split into two films, three books for each movie. If he accepts the deal, Waititi will be the next in WB’s line of directors to attempt this film. Leonardo DiCaprio and Andrew Lazar will produce through their Appian Way banner.

Waititi won’t get to this film for a little while longer; he be directing the World War »

The Five Best Star Trek Episodes Ever!

7 hours ago

Andy Naylor with his five best Star Trek episodes ever…

After 12 years away from the small screen, Star Trek returns on Sunday 24th September with Star Trek: Discovery. While we have had the re-boot J.J.-verse in that time, with mixed success, sci-fi fans have been sorely missing one of the most popular shows to ever grace our televisions.

To celebrate this beloved franchise I’ve taken a look back at what I think is the best episode from each series and why you should watch it.

Star Trek: The Original Series – Balance of Terror – Season 1 Episode 14

Kirk and the Enterprise respond to distress signals from outposts along the Romulan Neutral Zone and discover they are being wiped out one by one. On the surface this episode is a standoff between two experienced commanders who are trying to force the other into a mistake. It reminds me of The Hunt for Red October »

Comic Book Review – Star Trek Boldly Go #11

Villordsutch reviews Star Trek Boldly Go #11…

After the summer break we return to Star Trek Boldly Go touching on the past, and a turning point in the Federation’s history with Captain Garth and the return of Eurydice along with her daughter Thalia, who we last saw in Star Trek ongoing #45.

With our story opening on Captain Garth, we get to witness a rather bold maneuver in which the USS Heisenberg outwits Klingon Battle Cruisers above Axanar.  Years later, this tale is being recounted to the Starfleet Academy with Cadets Kirk and McCoy in attendance.  Then even more years later we witness Captain Garth meeting his fate on Antos IV.

Time passes and we join Kirk on board the Endeavour, reflecting on how he’s going to miss both ship and crew, though this reflection is cut short by the arrival of Thalia – without Eurydice.  Her mother has gone missing on Antos IV, »
