Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: walt on June 27, 2011, 03:54:52 pm
Come on, you're not even the target audience for that movie.

Did you watch PREDATORS? Robert pushed hard for that movie to see the light of day, and it was awesome.
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: D'Evil on June 27, 2011, 11:03:01 pm
I love most of Rodriguez's works, From Dusk Till Dawn, for example, is one of my favorite films of all time. I just don't think he can do kid's movies. I mean some movies targeted for kids like Baby Geniuses are terrible films, but most people who dislike them aren't in the target audience either.

Probably a bit of both. But I think more of the latter. Glee is incredibly popular.

It is also incredibly terrible.

FOX ORDERS DOUBLE D’OHS OF “THE SIMPSONS”
Longest Running Scripted Series on Television is Renewed Through Season 25

FOX has renewed THE SIMPSONS, the longest-running comedy in television history, for an incredible 24th and 25th season, bringing the series total to an astonishing 559 episodes. THE SIMPSONS airs Sundays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

In the words of Homer Simpson, "Woo Hoo! I outlasted Andy Rooney!"

The longest-running scripted show in television history, THE SIMPSONS exploded into a cultural phenomenon in 1990 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world. Matt Groening created the iconic family: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. In February 2012, THE SIMPSONS will celebrate its historic 500th episode. The series has won 27 Emmy Awards, been the subject of a hit feature film, created “Krustyland” and a revolutionary virtual coaster – The Simpsons Ride – at Universal Studios, received a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame, been honored with five U.S. postal stamps personally designed by Matt Groening, and named the “Best Show of the 20th Century” by Time Magazine.

Following the MLB American League Championship Series and World Series games on FOX, THE SIMPSONS returns with all-new episodes beginning with “Treehouse of Horrors XXII,” on Sunday, Oct. 30 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT). In the spooky opener, Homer takes a dangerous dive into an isolated canyon on Candy Peak, but when a crashing boulder traps his arm, he channels Aron Ralston (guest voicing as himself) to save himself. In “The Diving Bell and Butterball,” the first of three hair-raising Halloween tales, a venomous spider bite leaves Homer paralyzed, but when Lisa discovers Homer’s ability to communicate through natural gases, he is able to express his love for Marge. The killer spells continue in “Dial D for Diddly,” when Ned Flanders, devout preacher by day, transforms into a cold-blooded vigilante by night. In the final terrifying tale, “In the Na’Vi,” Bart and Milhouse are assigned on a mission to access a sacred extract on a distant planet. They morph into the land’s indigenous one-eyed avatars, but when Bart finds love and an eternal mate abroad, he is caught in planet warfare.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film Roman, a Starz Media Company, is the animation house.

PLEASE END THIS SHOW

Post by: senorfro on October 08, 2011, 03:13:30 am
Avatar's not horror.  Though I'm not surprised as this isn't the first time THOH has used a popular media of some sort (Transformers was in a previous one).  How I long for the days when they used actual horror and/or mystery in their Halloween specials.  Oh well.

I heard that there was a money issue and the Simpsons may have been ending.  Obviously that's not true.

Post by: Titiln on October 08, 2011, 03:37:29 am

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has long complained that people have treated him like a music industry joke, a punch line to the question, "Seriously, what's with that dude in the backward red baseball cap?"

But the nu-metal maestro may have the final laugh thanks to a deal he recently signed with CBS and CBS TV Studios to develop a half-hour sitcom. According to Deadline Hollywood, Durst will star in and produce the untitled show, which has a not-ready-for-primetime working title that perfectly fits the "Nookie" singer's self-deprecating image: "Douchebag."

CBS has committed to looking over a script for the show, which centers on a "rock legend looking for balance between his high-profile lifestyle and trying to raise a family." The script is being written by Matthew Carlson ("Mr. Sunshine"), who will also serve as executive producer.

one of my favorites is hosting the golden globes again even though he laid some sick burns the last time he hosted
Quote
After weeks of rumors, the organization announced Wednesday that Ricky Gervais will be back to host the Golden Globes for a third year.

 NBC pushed heavily for Gervais to have another stint on the show, but many members opposed his return.

 A year ago, the prospect of Gervais taking the stage again at the Beverly Hills Hilton seemed impossible. The British comedian presided over an insult-laden broadcast that poked fun at major stars such as Bruce Willis and Robert Downey Jr. and the non-profit organization behind the awards show.
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/11/16/idUS26788581520111116

this is cool but it also means he definitely won't be doing this thing (http://larryfire.wordpress.com/2011/09/08/ricky-gervais-wants-to-host-a-golden-globes-podcast-with-louis-ck-chris-rock-jon-stewart-larry-david-karl-pilkington/) which i would've enjoyed a lot more

Joss Whedon has a big-budget movie The Avengers coming out next year, but he's moving one step closer to making the sequel to the Internet sensation Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog happen.

Dr. Horrible, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion, was released in parts on the Web in 2008. Ever since its success, fans have been wondering when the followup will come. In an interview with Yahoo, Whedon gave an update on the progress of the project.

"We have been working on that for a while. It's been hard, because we all have jobs, and some of them are extremely taxing," Whedon said. "But we have had a vision of the thing for a while, we have been working on it, we have a bunch of songs and a few scenes. We need a little free time and right now that's plenty hard to come by."

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/dr-horrible-sequel-joss-whedon-263974

Now I want Avengers to come out and be done with just so Whedon has more time to do this.

FAQ: What about this one joke?

about 4003130102 ppl have asked about this. I believe this is the only overt reference in the series to the books being black & white.

answer: I DONT KNOWWWW YET! heahaerahaha. I haven’t tackled vol 3 yet -its color edition won’t be out for over a year. You’ll have to pick it up in 2013 and find out what new, even meta-er jokes come out of this humorous situation.

They are remaking Silent Night, Deadly Night. Malcolm McDowell is in it because he really likes starring in horror movie remakes, I guess. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/silent-night-deadly-night-is-getting-a-remake-with,71997/)

I wonder if they will sneak in a GARBAGE DAY reference (yes I know that is from the sequel but that is probably the only reason most people have even heard about this series (which has 5 movies!!! seriously?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!)
And now I guess I have to post a clip of GARBAGE DAY. But instead of posting just the part, here is the full rampage which I saw for the first time today which is just amazingly bad (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cA9vLK1VllA&feature=related)

Change that to "has been canned" (or for a more accurate term "has not been renewed").
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/marveltv/news/?a=61109

No third season for Avengers: EMH. Instead, it will be replaced with a new Avengers show called "Avengers Assemble," which will presumably fit into the same universe as that horrible Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon and the upcoming Hulk and the Agents of SMASH cartoon (which sounds like it'll be just as bad (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/marveltv/news/?a=59757)).

By default I'm not that interested, but it's nice for once to have a book that's not a translation of Japanese stuff, and one of the preview images at once confirms Captain Commando takes place in Metro City and uses Charlie Nash as a full name. If the book actually turns out to cover what little original plot points those games had (and dropped by MvC2), like Shadow and Shadow Lady, I might actually even bother with it.

Sega and Sanrio are teaming up for a series of character collaborations. The first product to result from the partnership shouldn't be too surprising:

This Sonic x Hello Kitty Super Jumbo Plushy will be available in late July at Sega amusement facilities throughout Japan. The item is meant to commemorate the long awaited July 14 reopening of Sega's Tokyo Joyopolis facility.

Sega says that it will be staging this collaboration project worldwide starting in Summer 2013.

Announced early this morning via USA Today, Archie Comics has released two pieces of art in support of its upcoming 12-issue crossover featuring the first meeting of video game legends Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man.

The story, written by Ian Flynn, the current writer for both character's regular ongoing titles, celebrates in part Archie's upcoming 20th year producing Sonic comics. "I'm already living the dream by writing the 'Sonic' titles," Flynn told USA Today "Then I got to live the other dream of writing for 'Mega Man.' With that many dreams being handed to me, I figured it was only a matter of time.

"Going in, I want this to be the story fans wanted to read -- not just our regular comic fans, but fans of both franchises -- so we're holding nothing back," the writer added. "Who knows when the stars will align and we'll get another chance to do something like this again, so I'm making sure this is the end-all, be-all crossover."

Official Press Release

Archie Comics, the leading children’s comic book publisher in the world and the home to some of the most recognizable pop culture characters, including Archie, Betty and Veronica, Jughead, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Josie and the Pussycats, announced today in conjunction with SEGA and Capcom® plans for a Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man® comic book crossover, starting next year.

The comic book event marks the first time the two legendary video game characters have crossed over, making it a landmark meeting for comic book and gaming fans around the world. The story will be written by best-selling and longtime SONIC THE HEDGEHOG and MEGA MAN writer Ian Flynn and will feature cover art by superstar artist Patrick “Spaz” Spaziante, who illustrated the hit SONIC: GENESIS storyline and the highly-successful MEGA MAN comic book launch.

“This is a historic moment for not only Sonic and Mega Man, but for Archie,” said Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “We’ve had a long, fruitful history with Sonic and are enjoying great success with Mega Man in all our markets. Bringing these characters together was something we’ve been hoping for since we got both licenses, so this is very much a dream come true for the company.”

The crossover, spearheaded by Archie’s Executive Director of Editorial Paul Kaminski, will be a universe-spanning tale that involves not only the legendary characters, but their expansive and diverse supporting casts and villains for a tale that’s certain to go down as one of the most acclaimed and best-selling comic crossovers ever.

The 12-part storyline will run through the ongoing SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, MEGA MAN and SONIC UNIVERSE titles and be available in print and digitally.

“We’ve been gearing up for this for years,” said Kaminski. “From the moment we had Mega Man at Archie, we knew we wanted to bring Sonic and the Blue Bomber together. It’s a big budget movie featuring two of the most storied video game franchises. This has never happened before. We’re making history here, and it’s going to knock people for a loop. This is what comics are all about – drama, fun, action and tons of surprises. Fans will not be disappointed.”

Universal has tapped Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to rewrite God of War, the studio adaptation of the video game from Sony Computer Entertainment.

Quote
Melton and Dunston made their names writing four installments of the Saw horror franchise. To branch out, they wrote a spec called Monstropolis which was well-regarded and caught the attention of the makers of Pacific Rim. Their work with Guillermo del Toro on Rim has now set them on the action tentpole path.

Namco Bandai and ShiftyLook announce Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-07-14/big-o-hitoshi-ariga-draws-klonoa-webcomic-for-shiftylook
Quote
Namco Bandai Games' ShiftyLook webcomic project announced at its panel at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday that manga creator Hitoshi Ariga (Big O, Mega Man Megamix, Megaman Gigamix) will be illustrating a webcomic adaptation of the classic video game franchise Klonoa. This is the first time ShiftyLook is using a Japanese manga artist for one of its webcomics, and ShiftyLook has provided ANN with exclusive art for the new series (see below).

Klonoa will be written by Jim Zub. It will premiere on the ShiftyLook website in August, and it will be updated on Mondays and Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Rob Pereyda, Producer and Editor-in-Chief of ShiftyLook, told ANN, "When we did the survey with ANN when we originally launched ShiftyLook back in March, we were pleasantly surprised to see just how popular Klonoa still is with anime fans. Their insatiable demand for more Klonoa content led us to the decision to develop a brand-new set of adventures in webcomic form. And it helps immensely that Jim Zub is a die-hard Klonoa fan."

Klonoa had ranked at #2 on ANN's poll in February with 18.84% of the votes. ShiftyLook also chose to adapt the Time Crisis video game into a webcomic based on ANN's poll.

Zub provided ANN with the following comment:

The first time I played Klonoa, I was blown away by its intricate balance of 2D gameplay in a beautiful D-rendered world. It really stuck with me as one of the best Playstation 1 Games I ever played. By the time Klonoa 2 was released, just over 10 years ago, I was well and truly hooked. Namco had Taken a great game and made it better in every way - art, Design, game play and story. I've been a big fan ever since. I Feel that Klonoa is right at the top with other great game mascot characters like Mario and Sonic.

Getting the chance to create a brand new adventure story for Klonoa with NAMCO BANDAI on ShiftyLook and being able to collaborate with legendary mangaka Hitoshi Ariga on it is an absolute dream come true. I love the source material and am working hard to ensure that Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol lives up to the legacy of this amazing franchise. I truly hope longtime fans of Klonoa and new readers alike dive in and enjoy.

Viz Media published Ariga's Big O manga, and Udon Entertainment published Ariga's three-volume Mega Man Megamix and the three-volume Megaman Gigamix manga in North America.

ShiftyLook also announced at its panel that it will create and stream two web animation series titled Bravoman: Cartoon of Unequalled Excellence and Mappy: The Beat. Additionally, the company will host webcomic adaptations for the 1980's vertical-scrolling arcade game Dragon Spirit and the 1990 arcade shooter game Golly! Ghost!.

Namco Bandai Games launched the ShiftyLook project earlier this year. The webcomics are available in English worldwide for free through web browsers as well as iOS and Android devices. The website currently publishes webcomics for Valkyrie, Rapid Thunder, Rocket Fox, Bravoman, Wonder Momo, The Five-Dimensional Adventures of Dirk Davies, Rapid Thunder, Alien Confidential, Scar, Xevious, Dig Dug, and Sky Kid.

DC Entertainment has got some catching up to do if it wants to catch up with Marvel Studios’ slate of superhero movies, but they’re trying their best to rise to the challenge. Although Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is the only DC movie due out in the next three years, Warner Bros. has a slew of other comic book adaptations in various states of development at the moment, among them the long-simmering Lobo adaptation.

The project’s been kicking around for a few years, and at one point had Guy Ritchie attached to helm. He eventually moved on, though, and this past spring Brad Peyton was announced to rewrite and direct. Now he’s trying to get his charismatic Journey 2: The Mysterious Island star Dwayne Johnson to help him bring the story to life.
 
Whispers of Johnson attaching himself to a DC movie have been swirling for a while, and the star himself added fuel to the fire a few months ago when he hinted via Twitter that he could have something in the works with the studio. At the time, we weren’t sure just what that meant, but he gets more explicit in a newer tweet (via The Playlist). “Rumors of me possibly playing LOBO are true,” he wrote over the weekend. “Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun.

Yeah, that's what we need.  The guy who starred in the goddamn Tooth Fairy playing Lobo.

Louis C.K. at least got a best comedy actor nomination. But still... Obama

Also it seems Community DID get one nomination, but in writing, for Remedial Chaos Theory (the one with the different timelines). However, I'm still just as angry, as Archer didn't get either a voice over nomination nor a best animated series nomination. Because apparently "The Penguins of Madagascar: The Return of the Revenge of Dr. Blowhole" is funnnier.

fuck you emmys stop being terrible

EDIT: oh well it looks like Glee only got one nomination, and it was for guest actress. So this year is slightly better than previous ones!

EXCLUSIVE: Jon M. Chu is in talks to helm Masters Of The Universe, a live-action film based on the signature Mattel toy line that is in high gear at Sony Pictures and Escape Artists.

Talks are just getting underway with Chu, who is in the middle of a 3D conversion on G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and is preparing to shoot a couple of new scenes for the film, which was pushed to a March 29, 2013 release by Paramount. The Masters film revolves around He-Man, a prince who transforms into a warrior and becomes the last hope for a magical world that has been ravaged by the sinister Skeletor.

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K, dudes: Vulture hears exclusively that a long-thought-impossible third Bill & Ted film is coalescing -- and yes, both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are attached to star.

Original Bill & Ted creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson have also attached Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) to direct their script. Unlike so many recent studio remakes, which have simply recycled old material for a new generation, Solomon and Matheson took the unusual step of writing their third Bill & Ted script on spec in an attempt to ensure a take that would address where Mssrs. Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq. are in their lives today as opposed to being a reboot or remake. Insiders tell Vulture the hope is to make a mid-priced studio comedy like Hot Tub Time-Machine.

Quote
"I tried to read the “Robocop” remake, but 20 pages in my nose started bleeding and I forgot my name. #nobueno #reallynobueno

I’ll share this one detail. In the film, when Murphy is turned into Robocop 1.0, it’s described “a high-tech version of the ’80s suit.” Then they show a focus group scene where criminals laugh at the design. “He looks like a toy from the ’80s!” So they redesign him to look “meaner” as Robocop 2.0, who passes focus group approval. So they not only make sure to include the original design, they also point out it’s dated and stupid. *facepalm*

Hold onto your sides for more hilarious “Robocop” details. They outsource his construction to China. #seriously

And we meet the ED-209s in the field in Iran, where they’re used to subdue suicide bombers. #ineedallthedrinksnow

Short version: this script makes my stomach hurt very, very badly.

Ahhh… now they just dropped Robocop 3.0 onto an Al Queda training camp to see what he does.

“He should be programmed to incapacitate in all scenarios.” “Agreed. Let’s keep him PG-13, Dr. Norton.” No. No. No. No.

By page 54, they are already onto Robocop 4.0, who looks like a “cop on steroids painted metallic blue.”

Oh, god… oh dear god… Robocop is a Transformer. He goes from “social mode” to “combat mode” and back. Full transformation.

I’m going to go stand in my backyard and scream at the moon for a while. My brain needs a shower.

Write it down. Page 55, the “Robocop” remake beat me. I’m done. I can’t hurt more than this.

Okay… the two “best” lines in the script. First up is at the unveiling ceremony for Robocop in Detroit, from a TV reporter covering it. “I think it’s safe to say that Alex Murphy is now part man, part machine, ALL COP!” Yes, I too remember the original poster, asshat. Second, after the traumatic first meeting with his father, Alex’s son retreats to the apartment of Lewis, Murphy’s male partner. The scene ends with the action line “David sits, catatonic, looks at the TV — MGM REMAKE TBD.”

Good god… it just keeps topping itself. It’s like someone wrote a script scientifically fine-tuned to destroy me. Someone shows Pope, head of the OCP project, some mock-ups for Robocop action figures. “Are you kidding? I wouldn’t buy that for a dollar!” Yeah, that just happened. NOT SO FUNNY NOW, IS IT?!

When this thing hits theaters, people are going to call up Len Wiseman’s “Total Recall” on the phone and apologize for being so mean. “I’m sorry, ‘Total Recall.’ I had no idea how bad things could get. You’re starting to look like a masterpiece right about now.”

I’ll say this: once the script stops all the winky-winky crap and just starts telling a story, it’s not terrible. But it’s way too late. If you can get past Robocop The Transformer, there are some interesting action beats. And I’m sure Padilla will direct the hell out of it. But overall? Ouch. Ouch. Ohpleasedon’t. Ouch. And a big side order of ouch."

What?
Quote
They duo told us they really want to get back to Batman’s detective roots. Watson says this series will be different in three prominent ways: “One: it’s the first CGI Batman show which is a huge part of it. Two: we’re taking Batman far back into his roots of being a detective. At its core, the show is a procedural. Even though Batman has his gadgets and his gear and his cars, at his core, it’s about a guy looking at clues and figuring things out and putting the pieces together so that ultimately he can solve the crime with his brain as opposed to just with his fists. And the third biggest difference is that you’re not going to see any villains that have ever been shown before in any animated show. There’s no Joker, Penguin, or Riddler. It’s all new villains pulled from the DC universe who are either well known or not known at all. All of those things give the show a completely different feel than shows in the past.”
Sounds great to me.

The last good Star Wars series was the Clone Wars cartoon that the guy who made Dexter's Laboratory made. It actually managed to make the prequels look cool, and General Grievous was a badass. Hell even Anakin was a badass.

New Line is still trying to make that Y: The Last Man movie happen. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/new-line-readies-y-the-last-man-movie-again,84796/) While a script from "former writers from Jericho" doesn't inspire a lot of confidence from me, I think it's a step up from the previous director, DJ Caruso.

Plus it means Shia LeBeouf probably isn't gonna play Yorick, and that's probably the best news ever.

Well, I almost had a heart attack, because I saw an article with the words "Mark Millar", "creative director", and "Marvel movies" in the title. But worry not, true believers! It's only Fox's Marvel movies! (http://www.avclub.com/articles/mark-millar-will-now-be-the-creative-consultant-on,85815/) So he'll be overseeing the two X-Men movies (X-Men: Days of Future Past and the "I can't believe they're going with that title" X-Men movie, The Wolverine), as well as a Fantasic Four reboot. And this is all a really bad idea because Millar is terrible.

Now, for everyone besides the 4 people who know who I'm talking about: Mark Millar is a popular comic book writer who first became famous for his work at DC in the 90's, and then exploded in popularity when he began working pretty much exclusively at Marvel in the 00's. Unfortunatly, Millar's Marvel work has pretty much been universally terrible. His plots are boring, he changes characterizations to fit those plots, no matter how nonsensical they are, and he enjoys gratuitous violence and rape scenes.

His recent work has wiped out a lot of people's goodwill: Kick-Ass has all those troubling racial issues and that weird thing where they kept insisting it was totally realistic man, just ignore the katana wielding 11 year old who overpowers full-grown men. And Nemesis had this:

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.comicsalliance.com/media/2010/12/vaginatrap.jpg)
Yeah. That happened.

So anyway, that's all creator owned stuff, who cares? What about his Marvel stuff? Well he did launch Ultimate X-Men way back in 2001, and that was sort of OK? Despite Wolverine sleeping with a 19 year old Jean Grey? I dunno? Oh, and Ultimate Fantastic Four. That was pretty lame. OK, let's move onto mainstream Marvel stuff. Civil War's characterization of Iron Man and those on his side as a bunch of literal facists has been something the Marvel universe has been struggling to undo. Real nice work there, Mark. Hmm, there was that Spider-Man run he did where he revealed Electro is bisexual because he liked getting raped in prison, because that's how things work. Ooh, and there his shitty Fantastic Four run where, among other things, he had Dr. Doom bow before his previously unseen (and unknown, because it makes no sense) master...

I can't wait until Marvel gets their characters back.

Goddard Film Group's producing team of Gary Goddard, Roger Lay Jr and Eric Carnagey are working with former Paramount Television Senior Executive Jeffrey Hayes, who was responsible for such television hits as STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION, FAMILY TIES, and CHEERS, to bring back Goddard's Sci-fi Cult classic CAPTAIN POWER AND THE SOLDIERS OF THE FUTURE in the form of a weekly one-hour drama series titled PHOENIX RISING.

They have enlisted writers/producers Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens to develop this next evolution of the series. Recent television credits for the Reeves-Stevens include creating the new science-fiction drama series PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD, the North American spin-off of the UK hit PRIMEVAL. They also served as writers/producers on STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE for Paramount and RACE TO MARS for Discovery.

Giancarlo Esposito? :)

No? OK fine because people hunger for another serialized genre show like Lost, and it follows a predictable cycle. First it premieres well, then they drag out the central mystery and don't offer any answers to some question or even good character moments (which is how Lost sustained itself). That causes people to lose interest and stop watching. And then the show gets canceled and never answers the questions it raised. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

or TL;DR version

the viewers were loaded, OKAAAAAY?

It just looked so BAD in the trailers.

It was demoralizing and painful to read as a whole.  I hoped for it to get better as the series continued but it only did the opposite.
At least Mark has nothing to do with the horrid X-men Vs. Avengers series which ironically, follows a similar path as the Civil War story.

Yeah it's not very good. The art is nice but making Cap a horrible racist caricature is the worst idea ever. And all the characters are unlikable douches and everything is made XTREME: Hulk eats people! Hank Pym doesn't just accidentally hit his wife once, he abuses her and then LITERALLY TRIES TO KILL HER. WITH BUG SPRAY (and ants)! Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are totally banging (although I guess it was still ambiguous until Loeb made it explicit because Loeb is a terrible terrible terrible writer)! Hawkeye's family gets killed and he escapes from captivity by killing people with his fingernails! And what can be said about that comment by Cap about France?

There were some interesting things in there, like Thor maybe being a crazy hippie and not actually a god, but then all ambiguity was removed to have a Lord of the Rings battle at the end of volume 2.

He really didnt had a choice , ironman blasted it apart, it possessed the strongest five mutants avaliable.

four of them were ex villains, and went mad pretty fast, but while they were still all okay they were helping people all over the world. Cyclops was still sane even with the full power boost, and then they had to press him until he snapped and went insane.

Now suddenly its his fault that he was possessed?

No, it is that after it happened, he thought he'd be special enough to control it. Last time I looked at it, he was thinking "hey, you know, if I kill Emma, I'll get all of the Phoenix Force just for me."
edit - and of course before it happened the very idea that it was possible to use for themselves a cosmic force that spends time turning worlds to space dust, doesn't give a shit about Earth, and has never once met its match in the universe, was ridiculous. This kind of storyline has been used before, except it was always the villain trying to do that. Now the hero thinks he's special enough to succeed in doing something they themselves have always stopped villains from doing.

Do you really read comics? the phoenix was jean grey for years being good. The hellfire club manipulated her and made her evil. Before that the phoenix was NOT blowing up planets etc etc. The avengers fucked up the whole plan of allowing hope to use the force to bring back mutants. Which is what it came there FOR. Because of stupid ass wanda's "NO MORE MUTANTS"

I agree the storyline was stupid as shit. But to say the phoenix force was always evil is just silly. Because it's not.

just finished watching 1st episode of season 8 Supernatural, I hoped it would have shown more of life in purgatory in several early episodes instead of several flash back here and there showing scenes. anyway I hope it would be a better season than the last 2 seasons

They should have just ended it with S5 like the creator wanted. It was perfect. Though, yes.... I'm still watching too for some reason. But I'm not liking it!!!

Also WOOT! new Godzilla?! Very pumped!

at least the car is back and here and there funny lines ... that is the only good point so far.

Do you really read comics? the phoenix was jean grey for years being good. The hellfire club manipulated her and made her evil. Before that the phoenix was NOT blowing up planets etc etc. The avengers fucked up the whole plan of allowing hope to use the force to bring back mutants. Which is what it came there FOR. Because of stupid ass wanda's "NO MORE MUTANTS"

I agree the storyline was stupid as shit. But to say the phoenix force was always evil is just silly. Because it's not.
I guess I didn't read about all that and mostly saw it associated with the danger of the Dark Phoenix, but in my defense the first issue of AvX straight out redefines the Phoenix as that ("a parasitic force of destruction that lays waste to the environment"), with confirmation from the likes of galactic cop Nova. With that definition, Cyclops is a dumbass, and seeing the contradiction with what you say, the story is just worthless, making heroes do the exact same thing as the villains they usually battle.

At this point, the Phoenix is actually a parasitic force of retcons that lays waste to continuity.

Nova is the idiot who didn't know what he was talking about. The phoenix was sent there to restore mutants. the avengers didn't allow the X-men to deal with it and set everything into motion. And no,they weren't acting like villains. Cyclops was trying to let hope have the phoenix so she could restore the mutant race (which she did). Then Iron man shot the phoenix while everyone was on the moon and split the force into 5 pieces. After this the 5 who got it DID NOT DESTROY SHIT. They fixed the world up. And the president was weary so the Avengers decided to keep poking at cyclops over and over. Until he finally snapped.

Cyclops was right in the end. And captain america along with Wolverine are giant idiotic tools.

that was after he had enough of the avengers prodding. before that they were fixing the world up. And slowly the phoenix started to bring out more of their worse traits.

This whole event was bullshit though. It was a lame way to change the status quo. And basically make wolverine sole leader of all the X-men.

this is wrong for SO many reasons.

Exactly. When the hero becomes Dark Phoenix and starts Armageddon on the whole planet in a matter of minutes and is ready to erase mankind and the planet saying "the world will burn to ashes and a new world will rise" you're a little past the point where you can say "oh, he snapped". Even being "pushed" into it by others is just blinding yourself. The point is, in this story, this is what the Phoenix does. It does sound like the writer just went to town with whatever he wanted and ignored everything else.

I'm not denying the nature of dark phoenix. That wasn't my point. The point was he wasn't going darker when they all were fixing shit. They were making the world a better place. No one was doing anything bad. The avengers show up at utopia and attacked the kids at the house. They were watching tv and out of nowhere the avengers just beat the crap out of them.

Then again they attacked him, not trying to talk just blatantly attacked him he still hadn't done shit at this point. It was just way too forced. They tried to do the same thing in civil war with Iron man and Cap. this time Cyclops is Cap and Cap is Iron man. The end of it has captain america pouting like a little baby. While cyclops accepts everything that happened during the whole fiasco.

Coulson Lives! Today at New York Comic Con's Marvel Television panel, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb announced -- by way of a special video starring The Avengers director Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige -- that Clark Gregg will be reprising his role as Agent Coulson in ABC's upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series.

"There was never going to be a 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' show without Agent Phil Coulson," said Feige in the clip shown in the middle of the panel. "He's headlining the S.H.I.E.L.D. show and always was," said Whedon.

Coulson's upcoming adventures on TV follow his appearances in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers, plus the marvel movie shorts "The Consultant" and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer."

Agent Phil Coulson proved so popular onscreen that he's now an animated character (voiced by Gregg) on Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man and has been integrated into the mainstream Marvel comic book continuity as well.

The status of the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series on ABC has been tentative up to this point despite the mega success of the Avengers film and persistent casting rumors. With the announcement of Gregg's involvement, however, its fate as a full series seems potentially cemented.

The ins-and-outs of how Coulson, who died battling Loki in The Avengers, will find his way back to the land of the living are still unclear. Theories joked about by Gregg himself at the panel include his death being faked in the film by way of one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s famous life model decoys, resurrection via being reincarnated as Vision, and the UK's censored cut of his death in The Avengers. Of course, these could all be moot if the new S.H.I.E.L.D. series simply takes place BEFORE the events seen in previous Marvel films.

The idea of Clark quitting the Daily Planet isn't in and of itself horrible, but the direction they're going with this seems god-awful. But that's to be expected for Lobdell. I mean, just read that preview, it's a lame copy of the scene in All-Star Superman where Superman tests his strength but this time the scientist is a hot lady and also he's been lifting weights for 5 days (!!!) because it's not like he has other obligations like saving the world or anything. And then there's a mention about half the world hating Superman because DC has no handle on their universe and thinks it'd be a good idea to lose their defining elements of a populace that implicitly trusts superheroes, especially Supes. And then of course there's that page where Lois has lost all journalistic credibility because the writer can't show the Clark is right without making Lois a complete idiot who has lost all her ethics.

And really, it isn't that bad compared to this gem that was mentioned:
Quote
Issue No. 13 is a prelude to the upcoming “H’el on Earth” story line, in which Superman crosses paths with H’el, a tragic character from Superman’s home planet, Krypton.

Agree, right off the bat in this article they have this quote saying "Clark Kent is not just Superman's disguise" well you know, yes, actually, he is... Making him someone who wants to take a bigger place in the active life (and the spotlight) is against his initial need to completely blend in, it just them wanting to have socially active & meaningful characters, even those that are supposed to be the exact opposite of that. It's one thing that people close to him don't recognize him just because of a haircut and a pair of glasses, it's another if he starts being louder for the whole world to look at him and hear his voice which he thinks is more important.

Hm, I dunno. He kind of isn't just a disguise, since Crisis on Infinite Earths. Before Superman was the real him, and Clark was just a mask. They flipped it because it makes more sense the other way: Superman is Clark's superhero identity, but the way he acts around his parents and Lois is the true person. Someone (I don't remember who) described Superman being 3 people: Smallville Clark (his true self), Metropolis Clark (an exaggerated, bumbling version of the former but shares his same basic personality) and Superman (a more stoic and trying to be a symbol). It's kind of like the whole Batman having different personalities thing, except Superman's aren't really separate personalities but instead how he behaves in front of different people (which is something everyone does).

Making him someone who wants to take a bigger place in the active life (and the spotlight) is against his initial need to completely blend in, it just them wanting to have socially active & meaningful characters, even those that are supposed to be the exact opposite of that. It's one thing that people close to him don't recognize him just because of a haircut and a pair of glasses, it's another if he starts being louder for the whole world to look at him and hear his voice which he thinks is more important.
I'm of two minds about this: on the one hand I think that Clark would never stop himself from doing something he thinks is right because it would jeopardize his disguise. On the other hand, he can't be careless about this kind of thing and becoming someone like Arianna Huffington is definitely going to raise his profile (even if he's usually been portrayed as being pretty famous for a reporter)

so yeah I dunno, he could pretty easily get Batman to be the public head of this news thing, I guess? That'd make much more sense because Bruce Wayne would get all the attention while Clark could do all the reporting. But maybe that idea makes too much sense for DC.

Other comic book news - Eddie Brock is now Toxin. 

Maybe I'm late to the party, but this could of been interesting and is now just bleh.  Toxin was always one of the more interesting symbiotes b/c he actually had a relationship with his host (they had conversations mentally and such).  And the host actually had a large degree on control over the symbiote, so it wasn't just the same old mindless rampage thing that we get with Venom a lot.  But now, it's is/was bonded to Brock and we get the mindless rampage version.  It's probably due to the fact that the new Venom is essentially the Toxin of before (human looking symbiote acting like a hero with a constantly struggle for control), but why couldn't we just leave Brock and Toxin alone?  Why mash them together into another generic symbiote character?

oh and the show is from a Big Bang Theory writer, in case you had any semblance of hope for the world left

next, Andy Serkis aka Gollum is going to do his mo-cap thing for an adaptation of Animal Farm, which he will also direct. But don't worry guys, Serkis is gonna make this version of Animal Farm "family-friendly"!

We’ve heard a few times that it’s likely that Electro will be the villain of the next Spider-Man movie, and Variety are echoing that once more tonight.

What’s more, they’ve learned that Jamie Foxx is negotiating to take the role.

An angry Jamie Foxx is pretty scary. It was inevitable he’d get cast as a villain in a big tentpole sooner or later. I fancy that they’ll shave his head an go the Ultimate route.

Update: Seems that Foxx is more than up for the role. Here’s his Halloween tweet:

We're even going back to having absurd numbers of variant covers for a single issue.

To be fair new 52 Constantine seems to be doing pretty well and the writer for his new book is pretty good so who knows.

does it make the marvel ultimate universe look like a masterpiece ?
Depends on what book; like, I'd say it makes the middling to kinda bad ones (like Millar's X-Men and Ultimates and I dunno that one with Ultimate Batman and Robin knockoffs) seem like masterpieces. But nothing will ever make Loeb's stuff a masterpiece. Not even Catwoman (my face doesn't appear for 2 pages, but you can see my ass and tits as I get dressed!) or Batman (Joker cuts his face off for some reason) or Suicide Squad (Amanda Waller is now a thin woman in her late 20's, also juggalette Harley Quinn is making out with Deadshot after she put the Joker's severed face over his mask). Those still don't come close to the systematic destruction of an entire line perpetrated by Loeb.

TBH, I liked Ultimate Spider Man b4 the Loeb Massacre of the line, and of course the "NEW AND IMPROVED ULTIMATE SPIDER MAN" who was an obvious PR stunt from the get go.

I wonder what Animal Man (which so far seems like the only good new 52 comic to me) makes Loeb's stuff look like.

They were recently talking about making 2099 come back, so it might fit, though I wouldn't say it's automatically that.
Miles may be called a PR stunt but at the end of the day it's not illogical, demographically speaking, and using Spider-Man is better than characters like Luke Cage who only looks like Dumb Muscle at first glance, and Black Panther is rare. Why not, no reason to hate it just for that. They only have to make it look decent.

More seriously: the book had a very unique narrative and way of looking at a zombie apocalypse and the movie has basically discarded every single thing from the book save for the name. I understand that there was no way a movie version would use the mockumentary format and I made piece with that when the movie was first announced, but this trailer is just... awful. I mean, goddamn fucking seas of CGI zombies climbing over one another like it's the battle of fucking Helm's Deep. The GOT TO SAVE MY FAMILY subplot. Brad Pitt being the chosen hero who must save humanity for some reason. And of course they're fast zombies because fuck you.

It just feels like this was made by Roland Emmerich, with the CGI tidal waves taken out and replaced by hordes of CGI fast moving zombies.

Seriously, I am so fucking pissed off. >:[

So for those of you who are hooked on Criterion Collection stuff, today they just released Heaven's Gate, which has the Criterion fans divided between factions of "this film is underrated excellence" and "this film is dog shit." Criterion responded by releasing a clip from the movie of Christopher Walken being unironically bad ass.



Their upcoming lineup of other films looks decent, but I'm mostly hyped for Sansho the Bailiff coming out in next year February. That film is wonderful.

Everything the kid says makes sense. And even if I liked the show when Charlie Sheen was on, the show needs to die ASAP.

Angus has a 1 more year contract, and given what he said, he probably won't sign a new one even if offered, so Chuck Lorre should start thinking about how to wrap this shit up for good with a little dignity.

If that's the case, I hope he gets cancer in the balls.

I mean, he has successfully put together many sitcoms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuck_Lorre). He knows how to assemble a cast, to set a situation and theme, he should just start over instead of puttin on this morbid show on "see how long this car can run on fumes".

People just watch the show to see when/why/how it will crash and burn, and not anymore because it's funny.

Dubs often sound worse than expected when you read the content.  Example, after reading Shaman King for years, and learning it got an anime, I was overjoyed...until I saw it, and had a hard time resisting ripping off my ears and sewing what's left shut.

This is not really newsworthy but I thought it was vaguely amusing so: The casting call for that Wonder Woman show called Amazon was released, and the description of WW herself is a bit weird. (http://www.deadline.com/2012/11/cw-warner-bros-explore-casting-the-lead-in-wonder-woman-origin-project-meet-iris/): "delighted—and just as often horrified—by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream".

Yes, Wonder Woman will be scared of ice cream. I wonder if that's just a jab at last year's Wonder Woman pilot?

Anyways, I was sort of bothered by this part: "And she’s completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what’s on her mind at all times."

If they're going with her traditional origin, then why would she be completely inexperienced with dealing with other people? I'm not saying that she would fit right in, she's from an isolated island with a weird kinda backwards but also simultaneously advanced culture. And also the whole "never meeting a man until adulthood" thing. I'm probably just nitpicking though.

Also kinda disappointed by "And she doesn’t have time or patience for politics or tact because she’s too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer.", because the George Perez and Greg Rucka runs, the only two runs in WW's history that could be called classic heavily focused on dealing with WW as an ambassador of Themyscira.

An MMO?  I dunno, Megas is a bit old to be coming out with something like that now.  As great as it was when it was around, it also wasn't exactally CN/Toonami's top show, either.

Besides, they bariely considered adding Megas when CN came out with Fusionfall.

Which reminds me, wonder what's going on with that little project of theirs...

Anyways, if it weren't for that tag to that Disney show, I would have guessed this was just another previous CN show moving to Adult Swim, maybe with a reboot, considering it's tagged to Valve, and Adult Swim and Valve have some sort of partnership going on that they haven't done much with.

Stephanie was great, and barbara was way more important as oracle. Dc went backwards with a lot of things. Like dick not being a batman anymore. I loved that. he feels like he took a step backward.

My rule of thumb when it comes to Deadpool:
If you think of a Deadpool moment and you remember it looking like Joe Mad, it was Kelly.
If you remember the moment and it looks like Street Fighter, it's Simone.
If you remember the moment and it looks like a painting, it's Remender.
If you remember the moment and it was shit, it's Way. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH

Dick going back to Nightwing I can kind of rationalize since he was Batman for a shorter amount of time.  It always struck me as a more temporary thing anyways.  But I agree with you on Oracle - she was Oracle for so long and was a much more intriguing character as Oracle.  Hell, I find it odd that Barbara's still prominently featured as Oracle in the Arkham City universe while she switched back in the comics.  God, I hope they don't have her switch back to Batgirl in the Arkham-verse.

(using this link since Bleeding Cool had to remove the picture)

Quote
A teaser for the upcoming Hollywood reboot of king of kaiju, Godzilla, screened at this past summer's Comic Con. It opens with shots of a destroyed city and the voice of J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atomic bomb) heard reading from the Bhagavad Gita – “Now, I am become death.” A centipede-like creature crawls through the rubble, then the dust clears and Godzilla roars in. That fades to the English and Japanese movie logo. For the first time, we can see that damage.

(http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3/8f87c5c7290aa1112c27b7297e8d7a921355856841_full.jpg)

The new Hollywood Godzilla will be directed by Gareth Edwards, who previously wrote, directed and created visual effects for 2010 indie kaiju/road trip movie Monsters. Concerning the teaser, Edwards told the SDCC audience, "I wanted to see this movie this way all my life." The director continued, "I've never worked this hard and this long that lasted this few seconds since I lost my virginity."


"We're going to take it seriously. If this really hapened, what would it be like? It's very grounded [and] realistic." 


“There is nothing sci-fi about this movie,” Edwards said. "If this really happened, what would this be like?"

(http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3/5080d09313f1b4e230fe2b7129709bf51342455960_full.jpg)

Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) signed onto the project in October for a rewrite of the script. David Callahan (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) scripted earlier versions.

 

According to Variety, the polish wasn't being done because studio Legendary Pictures has any major problems with the script; it wanted to age up the characters so that they fit the prototype of the actors they would like to target.

 

Casting is expected to begin soon with the movie slated for May 2014.

The Vampire Diaries is actually a pretty great show, it goes through entire seasons worth of plot in single episodes.

So I dunno, maybe the Battle Royale show could've been good, but the CW has a really terrible track record with a few exceptions.

well, there is still a chacne that in another 2 years they revive the battle royale project, after all they already did that once and hunger games hype should still last a few mroe years because there are 3 novels, afaik.

Ok. Calm down. So, Syfy canceled one of my favorite shows, Alphas, a smart, thoughtful sci-fi show about people with superpowers that often reflected their own mental issues. It was well-written, funny, and the acting was great (it had David motherfucking Strathairn!), and subtly explored mental illness through an X-Men like lens (http://www.avclub.com/articles/why-syfys-superhero-series-alphas-is-tvs-best-show,87682/).

So obviously that had to go to make way for shit like Ghost Mine. Ghost Mine. Seriously. Fucking Ghost Mine. I hate you Syfy. You cancel Eureka, and cut down it's final season to one episode (there was gonna be a musical episode you assholes) without telling them until the last minute, leaving them scrambled. And then this happens. Fuck you Syfy, you're almost as bad of a network as NBC. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHH

The channel indeed gotten worse and worse since the name change, but they at least had a few token actual science fictiony shows. And now there's what, two? And the rest of their programming is wrestling or UFC or whatever and ghost shit? UGH

And speaking of terrible decisions, FX may split into two different channels, one for older viewers (featuring dramas like Justified and Sons of Anarchy) and one for youngers viewers (featuring comedies like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League and... Anger Management :noo:). The younger-skewing channel would take the place of Fox's soccer channel, because lol soccer, and which might pose problems because said soccer channel is not always on cable packages. Also, the dramatic channel would keep the name FX, while the comedic channel would be called "FXX".

Yes, seriously. So, to sum it up:

Why couldn't they just keep their comedies on FX? Have the original comedies on FX and there you go. It's not that difficult, people.

Network television is run by out of touch suits and dinosaurs. Its decisions like this that only quicken its inevitable downfall. They cancelled Alphas? Are they frickin' serious? The show was getting darker, and gaining more emotional resonance plus David Stratharin's arc in season 2 was brilliantly done. There was just so much that the new show-runners were getting right with this show, they made you interested in every character. I just can't like anything anymore. Decent, ambitious, well made programming will always be cancelled before its given its due. If it ain't Ghost Hunters I guess it ain't happening. I'm still going to hope against hope that they'll revive Alphas like Fox did with Family Guy, its honestly the only reason I had left to tune into SyFy at all since I can catch a Twilight Zone marathon on youtube if so inclined..

Oh and I'm pretty sure that SyFy is a part of the NBC Universal mega-corporation family so this cancellation order seems well in line with Jack Donaghy's master plan to nuke the network by terminating decent shows and replacing them with God Cop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy_sMrsOVJU) or yet another run of M.I.L.F.

FX had some sports recently (college football and UFC coverage) but, yeah. That's FX in a nutshell: Reruns of old shows and (edited) movies with a bit of really good original programming (that is going to be split apart because whoever runs FX is probably about as smart as a vegatable)

And of course David Stratharin was really fucking good.

There was just so much that the new show-runners were getting right with this show
I remember when I was worried the new show runners were going to make the show lighter and more episodic. I was so happy when the exact opposite occurred. But now all of that is over because Ghost Mine and whatever the fuck that reality show about dark rooms is called. The one hosted by Urkel. UGH

In happier news, Archer's ratings have gone up (http://www.uproxx.com/tv/2013/01/good-job-everyone-a-lot-of-people-watched-archer-less-people-watched-anger-management/), which doesn't happen most of the time for continuing shows.

...why are you all looking at me like that and why are some of you holding baseball bats?

Sure the science on DT isn't exactly solid and half the show is more travel ad than anything productive, and sure they really abuse cheap tension-building tactics to sandwich commercial breaks.  But I appreciate and enjoy Gates' humor and antics along the way.  That and they honestly seem to care about trying to find whatever they're looking for, doing things you just don't see people do on similar "chasing things that may or may not be there" shows.    Plus, considering how rare it is they find anything even slightly related to what they were looking for, I'm inclined to believe they aren't making shit up for ratings like the Ghost Hunters.

As for Face/Off, I find watching them make and apply makeup and prosthetics to be an interesting process.

We had the unbelievable pleasure of hosting a conversation between three amazing artists: the legendary movie poster artist Drew Struzan, director Frank Darabont and genre powerhouse actor (currently on Being Human) Sam Witwer. Throughout the week we will be sprinkling tidbits from this amazing round table and eventually releasing the entire audio file. Listening to these three creators talk what they do will knock you over. But for now, here's a taste of the awesomeness to come, starting with Darabont's thoughts on his most recent project, Godzilla (which he is currently rewriting).

Godzilla has its origins as an allegory for the atom bomb, but today it's more of a straightforward monster movie. Do you want to restore some of that allegorical significance to the franchise?

Frank Darabont: What I found very interesting about Godzilla is that he started off definitely as a metaphor for Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And some of the atom bomb testing we were doing in the South Pacific in the subsequent years. The giant terrifying force of nature that comes and stomps the shit out of your city, that was Godzilla. Filtered through the very fanciful imaginations of the Japanese perception. And then he became Clifford the Big Red Dog in the subsequent films. He became the mascot of Japan, he became the protector of Japan. Another big ugly monster would show up and he would fight that monster to protect Japan. Which I never really quite understood, the shift.

What we're trying to do with the new movie is not have it camp, not have it be campy. We're kind of taking a cool new look at it. But with a lot of tradition in the first film. We want this to be a terrifying force of nature. And what was really cool, for me, is there was a very compelling human drama that I got to weave into it. It's not that cliched, thinly disguised romance or bromance, or whatever. It's different, it's a different set of circumstances than you're used to seeing. And that's tremendously exciting as a writer when you're asked to do something else.

Sam Witwer: Is Godzilla going to represent a different kind of metaphor, something that we're dealing with as a culture? Because I'm working on a Mothra rewrite right now.

Frank Darabont: I think there is, but I do believe that there's a margin of interpretation, as Drew mentioned earlier. I love leaving a few crumbs on the table for the audience to determine what they think. Let them bring something to it as well. That's why a movie like The Green Mile is so satisfying or why The Mist is so satisfying to me. Because it stirs their participation and they have interpretation. I've heard metaphors that people apply to Shawshank Redemption, for example, that are fantastic that I never, ever would have thought of. And I say, you know what? You are absolutley right. That is exactly what it means to you. And how satisfying for me to have served you this meal and you identify flavors in it that I never even intended. That's one of the great rewards of what we do.

Sam Witwer: And then also pretending like you did it on purpose.

Frank Darabont: That's sometimes true. It depends on how much you want your ass kissed.

Are you looking to connect it to a different contemporary issue?

Frank Darabont: Yes I am, but I'm not going to give it away.

That's just a taste folks — stay tuned for a whole lot more, including some of the most amazing stories we've ever heard, courtesy of the master artist Drew Struzan.

ABC has canceled Don’t Trust The B---- In Apartment 23, which is too bad because it was apparently very good. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/abc-pulls-dont-trust-the-b-in-apartment-23-from-it,91467/) Happy Endings also looked to be on the chopping block, but thankfully it has thus far been spared.

Movie ends with a close up of his feet, which are actually diamond shaped points otherwise unrecognizable as feet, and Stan Lee waking from a nightmare, breathing a sigh of relief, standing up out of bed to find his feet have been Liefelded and screaming all over again while they cut to credits.

Damn, beaten to it.

Perhaps he's drawn to comical impotency of the character. What IS the Rhino, after all, but the culmination of every Paul Giamatti role ever in a fugly gray Rhino suit?

Yes, I'm also including the time he played Elmer Fudd in Shoot 'Em Up. Critical part of the Rhino's psyche.

Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series are dead.  Powerpuff Girls reboot Genndy Tartakovsky mentioned months ago turned out to be some CG special. (http://io9.com/5979661/powerpuff-girls-will-live-again-but-young-justice-is-dead?popular=true)

God-awful re-design confirmed as well.

Don't know what to make out of Ringo Starr performing a Powerpuff Girls song...

At least it's on Adult Swim's Toonami. (That's on one night, at terrible hours...)

I would have been happier if they kept to the original Thundercats design, in looks and character, but it was still an ok show.

This re-boot...ugh, I do hope they're incorrect about that being the new look.  Was really hoping it would return to Adult Swim....it had its beginnings up on Space Ghost, next to Dexter's Lab and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, would have hoped it would be there again. (Besides, Aqua Teen and PPG reference each other enough times they should be on the same part of the network)  After CN's treatment with Genndy and these other re-boots on day-time CN, it already looks like this is going to fail.....even if it was the network's biggest show.

Amazing Spidey 2 has an official synopsis now, and a new cast member who is rumored to be playing the Vulture.

Up All Night is being retooled again! This time, it is retooling itself as a show without Christina Applegate. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/up-all-night-now-being-retooled-as-a-show-without,92320/) You know, the co-star. Without whom the show would collapse because it's about a couple raising a baby. The network is considering recasting the role with Lisa Kudrow, because why not.

I'm just... wow. I can't... what the fuck? They've been through 3 showrunners, a retooling at the beginning of the second season that made the show incredibly insular, and then they were retooling it again to turn it into a multi-cam sitcom, and now this. This is absolutely ridiculous.

I'm glad I stopped watching after the first episode of season 2. This show has never really been great, but it had the potential to be, and it was just a very pleasant show to watch; it wasn't always funny but it was just nice to hang out with the characters. So I will not mourn for Up All Night, but instead I will pour one out for wasted potential. Oh well.

This news is "a bit old", but I think you should know about it:

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c8/The_Leading_Man_Comic.jpg)
The Leading Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Leading_Man_%28comics%29) is a 2006 comic made by Oni Press and it's about a famous actor who's also a secret agent and spy... and which boss in The Agency (secret organization which he's part of) is also his manager. Well, Universal Studios bought the rights to make this movie in 2011. There're 2 big facts about this:
-This would be the second movie based on Oni Press comics, the first one is Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (which also was made by Universal)
-Justin Lin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Lin), famous for Community TV series and Fast & Furious franchise will be the director of this adaptation

The reason I put this 2011 news is... The Leading Man would be the next Lin movie after he finish FF6?? I hope so, I read the comic and it's great, you should take a look ;) (in the news itself there's a review of it and some extract of creators' interview)

I guess they could adapt those 2 series, since Macross is a big enough franchise to be adapted by itself and most of us recognized it just as Macross instead just Robotech.

I know it's not technically part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it's Marvel movie news so whatever.

Quote
Deadline is reporting that Matthew Vaughn will produce the new Fantastic Four film for 20th Century Fox. Based on the classic Marvel Comics superheroes created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, the film is to be directed by Chronicle's Josh Trank and is a reboot and unconnected to the studio's previous efforts, Fantastic Four and its sequel, Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Vaughn's involvement with the FF reboot is unexpected but not really a surprise. As a director Vaughn has quite the comic book pedigree, having made X-Men: First Class for Fox, as well as films based on Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' Vertigo (not-really-a-comic-)book Stardust and Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.'s Kick-Ass. Vaughn is also closely associated with Millar, who recently took a position at Fox where he'll consult on the studio's various superhero films, including Fantastic Four.

The guy who made Kick-Ass and X-Men First Class is producing the Fantastic Four reboot.  So we may just end up with a good Fantastic Four movie.

It doesn't really fit with the rest of the thread though, the MCU thread is about the entire cinematic universe and if we start including Fox and Sony's movies into it everything will be muddled!

The guy who made Kick-Ass and X-Men First Class is producing the Fantastic Four reboot.  So we may just end up with a good Fantastic Four movie.
I dunno, the fact that the Chronicle director is what makes me interested; producers only do so much, after all.

I just wish the F4 were relevant ... like, at all.
They were more relevant than Iron Man and Thor, even before the 2004 FF movie came out. And they got a sequel to that one too. They'll be fine.

That'll be shitty, it seems like The Thing costume is not that hard to pull since even the shitty 90's F4 had a great costume for him.
I thought the last two movies had a decent costume, they just needed bigger eyebrows. Or maybe Michael Chiklis made it seem better than it was, because that dude can act.

A Robosapien movie is actually being released (http://io9.com/5988110/robosapien-trailer-is-everything-that-is-wrong-with-our-world).

I'll let this speak for it:

Quote
This Robosapien trailer is a real trailer and not a Saturday Night Live sketch, despite all signs to the contrary. Producer—and heavily marketed as producer—Avi Arad's baby (one of the many faces behind the Sony-based Marvel movies), this might be the absolute worst thing we've ever seen in video trailer form. And that's before the Black Eyed Peas song starts up. Sweet Christ this is bad.

another idea under consideration:
Quote
Ultimately, a script was written in which Applegate, Arnett and Rudolph played actors portraying the characters Reagan, Chris and Ava on a fictional show called Up All Night. Off the show-within-a-show, Arnett's character would live at home with his mother, and Applegate's would be dating. Rudolph's real-life pregnancy was being written into the storyline — and included a "who's the daddy?" twist.

The changes were too much for Applegate, who quit on February 8 to focus on Anchorman 2

New Evil Dead remake trilogy planed. (http://www.slashfilm.com/evil-dead-2-script-already-in-the-works-remake-trilogy-planned/)

Quote
During the post-show Q&A last night the director and co-writer of the new installment of the horror series said “I guess this is an official announcement: We are already writing Evil Dead 2.”

Bruce Campbell, star and producer of the original, and a producer on this remake, chimed in to say that a trilogy is being imagined.

I wasn’t wild about this remake; it never quite unbinds itself from Raimi’s original. But I liked Jane Levy in the lead role, and the end of Alvarez’s Evil Dead suggested that there could be enough spirit left over for a second film. If this sequel can evolve into more of its own creature than something really dedicated to recreating what Raimi originated, I’ll be curious to see it.

For those wondering if the second film will remake Raimi’s own Evil Dead 2 (which featured a partial remake of Raimi’s original The Evil Dead) I would guess the answer is no. We don’t know that for certain, but the events of this film lead me to think the sequel will go in a different direction. As for the trilogy idea that Cambell mentioned, I would also guess that the third film would be something different than a remake of Raimi’s Army of Darkness. But that’s a guess based on the first film, and no one has let any specifics slip just yet.

Emmerich says he's also working with an art department staff to see how the world of ID Forever might look. "It's a changed world. It's like parallel history. [Humans] have harnessed all this alien technology. We don't know how to duplicate it because it's organically-grown technology, but we know how to take an antigravity device and put it in a human airplane," he explains. And while there may be some familiar faces in the sequels -- Bill Pullman has already confirmed that he is onboard; Will Smith has not -- their storylines will focus on a new generation of human heroes, including the stepson of Will Smith's Independence Day character (played in that film by Ross Bagley).

I've been a Hello Kitty fan ever since I was a wee Whit, and I still am to this day. (In fact, last week I mentioned a new HK children's book I got for my daughter!)

Today I'm psyched to tell you that the adorable feline is poised to star in an animated series for The Hub. The unexpected twist is that it'll be a mashup ... with Kiss.

Yes, I'm serious: Kiss Hello Kitty (working title) is now in development, and it's based on this line of Kiss x Hello Kitty products, which made its debut in 2010. The show will feature "four Kiss x Hello Kitty characters living their rock 'n' roll dreams and bringing pink anarchy to every situation they are in."

Kiss' Gene Simmons is slated to be one of the executive producers, and the band sounds pretty pumped about the project. Says Paul Stanley: "Knowing and viewing The Hub as I do daily with my three children, it is the perfect home for us to bring the Kiss Hello Kitty juggernaut to yet another generation."

You heard it here first, folks. I'll keep you posted on when the series will make its debut.

Quote
Director Fede Alvarez dropped a bomb on WonderCon audiences during an Evil Dead panel this Sunday in the Anaheim convention center n California.

Back when the red band trailer had been released, We had pointed out some interesting imagery that suggested that maybe the new Evil Dead, in theaters April 5, was actually a sequel. Alvarez confirmed this to the WonderCon crowd, while also adding something major.

He told audiences that an Evil Dead 2 (followed by a planned Evil Dead 3), and the recently announced Army of Darkness 2, will eventually crossover for the ultimate cult horror movie Evil Dead 7, reports Movieweb. So, after two sequels to the current remake – the remake universe will collide with the old “Ash” universe in a film that will amount to be the 4th installment in both franchises.

At this time, Sam Raimi and his brother Ivan Raimi are working on the screenplay for Army of Darkness 2, which will continue the story of Ash as seen in the original The Evil Dead from 1981. While Fede Alvarez might have been joking, suggests the site, who was on hand for the panel, he seemed serious when he said he plans to join both his new franchise together with Sam Raimi’s old franchise.

Hail the king, baby.

Just give him a big budget and have him crank out an animated Justice League movie Warner, c'mon.

So FX is splitting up into three different networks, one of which will seriously be called FXX: (http://www.avclub.com/articles/upfront-roundup-all-cable-is-fx-and-fx-is-all-cabl,95741/)
vanilla FX will have custody of all the dramas
FXX will get all the comedy shows, along with reruns of stuff like Arrested Development and Freaks and Geeks
FXM, will be a safe, welcoming place for those ads that keep saying FX HAS THE MOVIES that play every single commercial break. Oh and movies, probably.

David Zucker, fresh off such hilarious gems like An American Carol and Scary Movie V, has decided that now it would be a good time to reboot The Naked Gun, (http://www.avclub.com/articles/scary-movies-david-zucker-sees-no-reason-not-to-re,96308/) which was one of his earlier and less funny works.

I wonder what it would take to pull off a Naked Gun kind of movie so people don't say it sucks. Comedy is way too varied and subjective these days, no movie can satisfy all niches and humours, and be considered universally funny.

Believe me, I just watched all of them a couple of weeks back, and they were silly as shit, filled with silly puns and silly physical comedies. By today's standards there's no way a movie like (or even the Naked Guns themselves) that would make a good box office hit.

Hey, I liked Heroes.  Yeah, the second and third seasons were complete ass, but that was when that idiotic writer's strike was going on and every show sucked during that time frame.  It got good again in Season 4, once the stupid strike was over and they actually had professional writers working on the show again.

That being said, I'm not exactly thrilled to hear that they're thinking of trying again.  Some things are better left dead.

Hey, I liked Heroes. 
I liked Heroes too! I was even among the people who thought, when the first half of the season was airing, that it was "Lost done right"! Of course, that sentiment faded away quickly, just compare their respective finales, with Lost's explosive, almost movie-quality two part season 3 finale (those explosive game changers: NOT PENNY'S BOAT, and WE HAVE TO GO BACK, KATE, god I'm getting chills just thinking about them). Heroes meanwhile did a nonsensical retread of Watchmen's ending, featuring the magically empty streets of New York, middling resolutions to the storylines, and an overall sense of "who cares".

And then the second season quickened the decline. The writer's strike certainly played its part, but it mostly affected their episode count, and the ability to tune up the existing scripts. A lot of season two's issues were ones that couldn't be touched up, they were deep and fundamental. Plus, tons of other shows were able to deal with the writers' strike (to bring up Lost again, they managed to do great, and even produced their single best episode, The Constant).

Yeah, the second and third seasons were complete ass, but that was when that idiotic writer's strike was going on and every show sucked during that time frame.  It got good again in Season 4, once the stupid strike was over and they actually had professional writers working on the show again.
Wait, what? The third season wasn't affected by it. (well I mean they did plan to do the first half of season 3 in season 2, but still). It was still watchable and there were a few good episodes here and there in both those seasons, but it was clear that they were never going to live up to the potential they showed (and displayed in episodes like "The Company Man"). Also, I think you're confusing the seasons with the volumes; season 3 had two, the first half being the wretched Papa Petrelli storyline, and the second half being the pretty good fugitive one (easy to see why it was better, Bryan Fuller came back for that half). Season 4 is the one with the evil carnies. Good lord, what an awful, terrible season. I couldn't keep watching it after 10 or so episodes. And it only got worse, from what I hear. Tim Kring just didn't know what he was doing. And when all the people who kept the show good left, it spiraled out of control.

Wasnt Loeb on S2 and S3?
Loeb came on right after the pilot, and left after the first half of season 3. He wrote some episodes and was a co-producer (which means he had some influence over the direction the show took, but I'm not sure of the specifics). He wrote some pretty wretched episodes, but they weren't the worst the show would do.

Post by: Byakko on April 20, 2013, 03:05:47 am
I hated Nathan all the way, and I hated Peter most of the time for just being useless. That goes for the entire seasons revolving around them by extension. The storylines were going in circle all the time, with characters being so dumb and blind and useless, believing anything they wanted and fuck the world. Quinto's character (forgot his name already) was pretty much the only interesting thing in the show. The starting concept was interesting but not that interesting, and not that well done. And god damn it, the three cloned sisters or whatever, or how to recycle a bad actress when they figure out her character is garbage by giving her more garbage characters. The first season was good for novelty, variety (even if it were just little things and nothing notable), and for Quinto, but the nuke storyline already went in circle fast.
Oh, and... forgot his name already, normal badass dad Company Man, he was great too but there were a few occasions where his character was really on the verge of being just as blind stupid as everyone else.
As a whole, you can only conclude that the characters were pretty badly written. Except for Sylar and Noah Bennet (Wikipedia'd their name) but it doesn't seem like they always knew what to do with them either.
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Jmorphman on April 20, 2013, 03:24:58 am
Sylar was really terribly written after the first season; they could never decide on a direction for him, so his character was super disjointed and only held together due to Quinto's acting. And that's all because he was supposed to die in season 1, but they decided he needed to come back, go on a road trip in Mexico, lose his powers, be brainwashed into thinking he's Nathan, squander that storyline, and turn into a good guy after being stuck in an alternate dimension with Peter in an extremely homoerotic episode, apparently. (of course Heroes shows that episode after I stopped, god, just hearing about it makes me tempted, oh jeez that would be hot UMM NOTHING)

HRG/Mr. Bennet was handled much better, and like Quinto, Jack Coleman often was the only thing making his scenes work, as the script, the direction, and the other actors actively worked against him.

Hiro was probably the character handled the worst, always behaving incredibly dumb and never doing anything because his powers were just too powerful, and then they gave him brain cancer for some reason, and then it was cured magically when he hallucinated being on trial in his own mind or something?

I remember having visceral hatred for Claire's boyfriend in season 2, West, but I cannot for the life of me remember. I guess, for once, I actually did end up blocking something from my mind because it was so bad!
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Byakko on April 20, 2013, 03:33:21 am
Yeah, Sylar was all over the place, but Quinto made it work, and quite well, so it didn't look as bad as it really was. He has that phase where he begins being a good guy with that blonde electricity chick (I think, I forgot), starting to think he doesn't actually need to kill people to learn, and then a little later he goes bad again and kills the girl anyway just because lol fuck you after all. That scene was pretty well done, but only because it was Quinto, as a character it was just another change of direction. They did try to make us believe hard in his "I'm a good guy now" phase when we see that alternate future where he's a good daddy, but blows up (literally) again when his son is killed. That also worked because of Quinto.

Holy shit, I thought NRS' redesigns of DC characters for Injustice were bad, but get a load of Square Enix's figures :
Green Lantern (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10226802)
Batman (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10226801)
Wonder Woman (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10226803)
Jesus Christ this is terrible. Square Enix is usually better than that on figures, but this here is just "what if DC superheroes were the main character of a JRPG"...

Forgot to post about this: AOL has shut down Comics Alliance. (http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2013/04/aol-pulls-plug-on-comicsalliance/) For some reason. It certainly wasn't for lack of hits, they've been doing better than ever lately.

So, why does this matter? Aren't there a lot of other comics sites? Well, shut up, imaginary person I invented, and read this:
 http://comicsbeat.com/viva-comics-alliance/ said:
If Comics Alliance was known for anything – aside from the much-needed essays on prejudice and progression, aside from discussion of Batman punching people with car parts, aside from advice on how to make and celebrate your favourite characters via cosplay – it was for being a website where people enjoyed being immersed in their favourite culture. There’s a tendency, especially as you find yourself growing older than your childhood heroes, for people to turn cynical and dismissive, to take joy in hating things and seeking out misery. It’s prevalent all across the internet. No matter what your passion is, people online want to tell you you’re stupid for having it. Comics Alliance, to me, was a site which refused to fall into that pit.
I'm feeling really bummed about this, and combined with the recent AV Club departures (http://www.avclub.com/articles/an-update-from-the-av-club,97016/), it leaves me wondering where to go to read the kinds of things they provided. :(

At least the AV Club's news and TV divisions are mostly unaffected, at least...

Holy shit, I thought NRS' redesigns of DC characters for Injustice were bad, but get a load of Square Enix's figures :
Green Lantern (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10226802)
Batman (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10226801)
Wonder Woman (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10226803)
Jesus Christ this is terrible. Square Enix is usually better than that on figures, but this here is just "what if DC superheroes were the main character of a JRPG"...
Sweet merciful Christ. What the fuck? These aren't just awful designs from a "faithfulness to the original version" kind of thing, they're just incredibly awful from a general design perspective.

I didn't say Matt Groening's mother was a stupid thing, I said your title was a horrible choice of word because it made people think it was someone else. All you had to do to make it right was specify "Marge Simpson's inspiration" instead of just "Marge Simpson", and no one would have been annoyed by the title change. You're a fucking ass.

The thing is when people see "MARGE SIMPSON IS DEAD!!" they're more likely to think her voice actress, Julie Kavner, died. Either that or they killed the character off for god knows what reason.

I really don't see the point of misleading titles like that.

All the broadcast networks just ordered series and renewals, so a bunch of news came out.

Most importantly COMMUNITY SEASON 5 (http://www.avclub.com/articles/community-renewed-for-fifth-season,97627/)!!!!! 13 episodes ordered so far, but who knows if that will change. Chevy Chase will not return, but I'm not sure what will happen with Ken Jeong. He signed onto a pilot early this year, but I'm not sure if it was picked up and if it would affect his presences in this new season.

And Parks & Recreation was renewed for a 6th season! (http://www.avclub.com/articles/parks-and-recreation-reportedly-renewed-for-a-sixt,97561/) It wasn't really in doubt, but NBC is insane, so it's nice to have it confirmed.

Meanwhile, Whitney and 1600 Penn fell in battle (http://www.avclub.com/articles/lets-all-pretend-to-be-sad-that-whitney-and-1600-p,97567/), and Up All Night was finally put out of its misery (http://www.avclub.com/articles/nbc-also-mercykills-up-all-night-and-guys-with-kid,97570/), which is, again, the show that considered having a magic portal connecting the old, single camera reality of the show, to the new, multi-camera revamp of the show (that only had a single episode filmed in that format, if it was filmed at all, I'm not checking, sue me), a magic portal that only the baby could see. Also mercifully canceled was that horrible, horrible Ryan Murphy show, The New Normal (http://www.avclub.com/articles/upfronts-update-cbs-cancels-four-univision-wants-t,97630/), the one about a bunch of stereotypes trying to adopt a baby.

But it wasn't all good news, they also declined to pick up that John Mulaney show (http://www.avclub.com/articles/nbc-opts-not-to-pick-up-john-mulaneys-sitcom-presu,97618/), which is too bad.

And ABC canceled Happy Endings, which is complete and utter bullshit. (http://And ABC canceled Happy Endings, which is complete and utter bullshit.)

Also, Adult Swim is making a cartoon starring Mike Tyson solving mysteries with a talking pigeon. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/adult-swim-also-had-upfronts-where-it-announced-a,97617/)

Remember that episode of Futurama with Fry's dog, and how sad it made you? And they they brought Seymour back, with diminishing returns in a series of events we'd really all would rather forget because it kinda ruined the first episode? Anyways Seth MacFarlane is gonna be voicing Seymour in an upcoming episode. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/sad-futurama-dog-to-become-much-less-sad-with-addi,99240/)

Yes. Really. Voicing him. Because he can talk now? And will be voiced by Seth MacFarlane??? :|

Thanks for not mentioning this key bit:

in an Aug. 14 episode that takes place solely in Fry’s dreams.
Even so, it sounds like something the executives at Fox would have come up with.

The fact that it's in a dream doesn't really change anything to me. It's still really weird and frustrating and I dunno I'm sure it'll be funny because it's Futurama and Seth MacFarlane is a pretty good voice actor but I'd rather they stop bringing Seymour back.

They're not as good as the earlier ones, but they're still funny, and there's been definite classics. This last season has felt like they got their groove back.

The movies I would definitely call mediocre, though.

A bunch of the older seasons were fun, though sometimes it felt like you were expecting something to be fun and it was just a random parody of something you didn't care about. It does have some of the greatest episodes of a comedy show I know, but currently, it feels like it's a lot of those parodies or simple mockery of something, so IMO it's getting a little tired (last week's Fast and Furious parody is an example of something I didn't give a shit about, for one, so it didn't feel too funny to me).

Also, big news. Legendary Studios is severing its ties from Warner Bros. (http://www.comicsalliance.com/2013/06/25/warner-bros-legendary-split-up/) They did all three Nolan Batman movies and MoS. So... this is a pretty big deal. I think this means Nolan probably won't be involved with the sequel? Maybe?
I know this is from the DC thread, but I wonder how this would effect something like say, Godzilla.

I've never seen any of the Fast and Furious movies, but I thought it was pretty decently funny (mostly the girl going on and on about the unspoken verbal abuse she suffered). I would've said the episode was a kinda stinker but then BAM suddenly Flatland parody and it really redeemed the episode, IMO.

I meant stuff like why now (and not 6 months ago), why he is sorta echoing the stuff the NRA and buddies were throwing out after Sandy Hook (violent games and movies are the problem, not our precious innocent guns), or even what his lack of "support" is gonna be.

Because the movie is about to come out and it has
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
and Carrey is a big gun control supporter, also a big christian and his effort since then on gun control would be called in question the moment he was pictured
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

so he is pushing in his christ chips and cashing out before shit hits the fan. His long term plans probably include politics.

My question is why isnt he giving away all the money he made out of the movie to charity if he has such a huge moral hangup on a movie he fullheartedly supported.
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Jmorphman on June 27, 2013, 04:34:24 am
He could've easily "withdrawn his support" right after Sandy Hook happened, he saw the script over a year ago and filming had almost certainly wrapped by then, the fact that he's doing it now seems a bit fishy to me.

I would've said the episode was a kinda stinker but then BAM suddenly Flatland parody and it really redeemed the episode, IMO.
Yeah, the gags were still decent, although the unspoken verbal abuse girl is exactly the kind of reference I didn't care for (I'm guessing it was a reference given how many times they repeated it). 2D world was an okay idea (I had no idea it was a parody of something), although not much more than that : there was nothing much going for it other that "they're in a 2D world, okay".

I meant stuff like why now (and not 6 months ago), why he is sorta echoing the stuff the NRA and buddies were throwing out after Sandy Hook (violent games and movies are the problem, not our precious innocent guns), or even what his lack of "support" is gonna be.
Oh, I didn't think Carrey was specifically echoing the NRA against violent movies in defense of guns. It's just violence in general that he's sick of.

he saw the script over a year ago and filming had almost certainly wrapped by then, the fact that he's doing it now seems a bit fishy to me.
He said he'd finished filming a month before it happened, yeah, but given he said "I can't support this film", what I understand by "support" is that he doesn't want to participate in promotional events and interviews and whatnot, which should be around the corner as the release comes close. It's the right timing IMO if that's correct. No one would have cared if he'd said it several months before it even started.

(http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/moviesnow/la-et-mn-james-cameron-avatar-sequels-20130801,0,6518554.story) Strange moment to confirm this, especially since he has been sued for plagiarism for this movie (http://www.3news.co.nz/James-Cameron-sued-by-British-artist-over-Avatar/tabid/418/articleID/303273/Default.aspx)...

Hah ! I was always thinking it was a little telegraphed that the Doctor was mostly played by older men beyond their 40s in the first era, and by people not beyond their 30s in the revival. Trying to fit in the current mold of the pop star and all. I'm okay with that - not to mention that having a younger guy always made it feel like there should be romance with the doctor, except it's not really a show for that and it wouldn't be good (the River Song arc made it work differently).

That really awful looking Fox show, executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, Dads, is creating a brouhaha about its depiction of its Asian character. (http://www.avclub.com/articles/asianamerican-group-asks-fox-to-please-do-somethin,101725/) Also, the co-creator tweeted this back in 2011: “If you wanna feel better about this earthquake in Japan, google 'Pearl Harbor death toll’". Which is uh, OK. Yikes.

And then Fox basically just said nah, don't care (http://www.avclub.com/articles/not-surprisingly-fox-is-just-going-to-ignore-its-r,101837/).

Gene Parmesean is being wasted in this.

Sounds like silly wishful thinking (because the whole concept is indeed silly). But hey.

I'm going to totally ignore any potential continuity issues with this seeing as the overarching "continuity" of Power Rangers only ever comes up for the sake of conveniently explaining crossovers and the rare throwback (Rita Repulsa being the Mother of Magic in Mystic Force, for instance).

With that out of the way.  I think this could work as a one-off special.  I don't agree that Tommy has the franchisability of Wolverine, but a mostly standalone hour-long anniversary special featuring Green Ranger kicking some ass could be pretty sweet.  Keep the language toned down but dial up the violence to PG-13 levels would work, I think.  Throw in some Dragonzord action for good measure.

It'd take some serious finagling, but this might be the opportunity to provide the Lord Zedd fight we never got in MMPR.  I can't think of how right off hand, though.  Maybe Rita left him and he's bitter or something.

Likewise, the ATAS should require 500 words of rationale per category, just so morons aren't allowed the privilege of anonymity anymore.

Doing so might result in satisfactory explanations for why:

Jim Parsons wins anything, when his job as an actor is to play someone who neither understands nor cares about emotion, empathy, motive, etc. — all the stuff an actor reacts to and exhibits — thus almost guaranteeing that other contenders for the same nomination are doing far more work at far more risk of exposing their shortcomings

Eh, they've won before. Though Jeff Daniels winning best actor is a fucking joke (seriously it's such an unchallenging role, and the show itself is awful and smug as shit) and Hamm should've won.

At least Colbert won, finally. Well deserved, especially with the Super PAC stuff he was doing.

The makers of the two Atlas Shrugged movies (you know the ones that bombed miserably) have turned to Kickstarter to help finance the advertising (http://www.avclub.com/articles/atlas-shrugged-producers-turn-to-kickstarter-for-h,103253/) (but not the actual movie budget, no way, what do you think they are, useless moochers asking for charity, you stupid parasite?) for the third part of their trilogy (or tetralogy I don't know nor care) desperately unwanted adaptation of a shitty book designed to espouse a horrible and scummy philosophy.

I'm sorry I can't take this seriously they're asking for fucking charity to make their shitty movie that has been rejected by the all powerful market twice over and their shitty philosophy is morally opposed to charity and ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

IFC has signed a deal with Earwolf Podcast Network (of Comedy Bang Bang! fame) to produce a bunch of shows (http://www.avclub.com/articles/ifc-greenlights-a-garfunkel-oates-series-signs-a-d,103517/), starting with The Embassy, starring James Adomian in a whole bunch of roles, which sounds utterly fantastic.

And they might be interested in turning some more podcasts into shows. (http://splitsider.com/2013/10/talking-to-scott-aukerman-and-jeff-ullrich-about-earwolfs-new-tv-production-arm/) Could Affirmation Nation the show be far off? Wouldn't a How Did This Get Made? show be BONKERS? I can't wait to see what they'll cook up. :)

Doesn't mean they shouldn't win again (would have been the first for Banks). Unlike other repeat winners (Parsons) their characters drastically evolve between seasons and naturally so do their actor's performances. I agree about Daniels, can't comment on Hamm since I've only seen 2 episodes of MM.

Wilfred has been doing very very poorly in the ratings this last season, which makes its renewal both simultaneously surprising and understandable, because it will also only be 10 episodes, and it will be the show's last (http://www.avclub.com/articles/fx-sending-wilfred-to-live-with-its-sister-network,103671/). Hopefully they'll wrap up everything satisfactorily.

The original showrunner is also returning the show (working with the showrunners of season 3), so hopefully this last season will be more like 2 and not so insular and somewhat scattershot like season 3 was.

Hamm hasn't won once and it's ridiculous and he deserves to win.

Freaks and Geeks creator/Bridesmaids director Paul Feig wants to
make a gay romantic comedy with Channing Tatum (http://thedissolve.com/news/664-the-heat-director-is-not-making-a-gay-romantic-com/), though it should be noted that it's more of a pie in the sky type deal than anything remotely close to being in production.

If Johnny Storm's race doesn't matter, why bother changing it?  Claiming it's diversity for the sake of diversity is a cop out to avoid the issue of affirmative action as a means to combat racial imbalance being a flawed principle.

Miles Morales. That one was a good way to use a big name and inject some "diversity", because it's actually a NEW character, and they constantly compare him with the previous version - WITHOUT being obnoxious about it, and without feeling like "just another ripoff / clone". Of course the moment he appeared it felt a bit like "creating Black heroes for the sake of diversity" (and that was only because it was done to such a big name, Spiderman) but in this case it disappeared as soon as the character had a couple of pages to his name.
Taking an existing character and changing him will obviously feel forced. Why not just create a new character ? That's how you do it if you want nobody to care that he's Black.
tl;dr the problem isn't that he's Black, the problem is that it's a change. Don't start calling people racist for no reason.

Arbitrarily changing a character's race is stupid by virtue of being arbitrary.  There's nothing wrong with it in most cases from a storytelling point of view, but there was nothing broken about the character before that a race lift would fix.  Best case, it adds nothing; worst case, it adds an excuse for writers to wax poetic about racial inequality.  That said, the only real drawback is the alienation of long-time fans.  While I understand and to an extent agree with the idea that sticking to the established is better, a race change is so low-impact a change that getting upset about it is almost as stupid as the change in the first place.

I said all that to basically say "meh".

I'm well aware of it. So now you have to show that Johnny and Sue have mixed parentage and you probably have to waste a throwaway line or two explaining genetics to people who AREN'T aware of such things (your average moviegoer, for one). Or you take the easy route and make one of them adopted. Okay, which one? THIS is what I mean about unnecessary backstory. You make them both black, you don't have this problem.

And I was totally serious earlier. You make them ALL black. You get to say right from the start you're making the FF black, so the discussion is over and done with. Terry Crews gets to be the Thing like he wants. You get a prominent black leading man who otherwise would have to choose between Blade, T'Challa, Luke Cage, [insert B or C tier character that nobody's heard of and/or cares about]. You get a prominent black leading lady who's got even less choice when it comes to superheroes because Halle Berry has a stranglehold on Storm. You get Tyler Perry involved somehow (not as Reed, please) to bring the illusion of family friendliness and sell it to people who otherwise wouldn't care all that much. You make money.

It was a brilliant move when you think about it. They further cement their revisions of the characters as timeless storybook fairy tales, and they protect themselves from any lawsuit from Warner Bros. on behalf of DC Comics and Bill WIllingham.

You know, since they kind of stole the idea from Fables.

So it turns out Allison Williams is not Sue, but everyone in the running is still white, which is still silly. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/10/fantastic-four-allison-wiilliams_n_4077675.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003)

And apparently Jon Snow from Game of Thrones is in the running to play Reed, (http://www.avclub.com/articles/kit-harrington-kate-mara-and-michael-b-jordan-have,104094/) which is just, fuck you. Reed is not a goddamn teenager, don't do Ultimate Fantastic Four or something. God, Michael B. Jordan just got my hopes up, made me forget that Mark Millar is helping with this, that Fox is still in charge.

What exactly is the benefit there?
Puts new spin on franchise, helps distance the reboot from the last two movies, gives the opportunity to say something about race and family, gives Michael B. Jordan an acting role, tons of things. Who gives a fuck if it messes with "lore"?

I'm not talking about the change but about a new Fantastic Four movie being produced. One of the lamest superheroe franchises ever.
Get out.

And then read the original Lee/Kirby run, and also maybe the Waid run. Shit is fantas--it's great. Really good. Some of the most inventive comics ever.

You know, I think there's another POV in this situation, what if the current actor was the best suited to play as Johnny Storm? Maybe they picked him because he was the best in the casting and not because he was black.
I would guess that he was chosen (well technically he's not officially cast, only doing been asked to test, but whatever) because he worked with the director before (in Chronicle) and he has gotten and is getting a lot of praise for his acting work.

They should make them ALL black. Michael B. Jordan, Kerry Washington, Terry Crews and Denzel. Who wouldn't see THAT movie?
I was actually thinking that Kerry Washington would be a good Sue; she's great, and she's not stupidly young. But oh man that cast is so good!

You know, since they kind of stole the idea from Fables.
Eh, well, Willingham did go out of his way to say they were distinct and it was in no way a ripoff, but even so, I just can't stop seeing it as a cheap imitation, or at least a failure in taking advantage of its premise like Fables does.

God I want a Fables TV show.

What are you talking about. It gives them an opportunity to say something interesting, though I doubt they'd take try anything, even if they used, say, Speedpreacher's imaginary cast. But the potential is there, and the potential is interesting.

All that it says about race and family is that they don't understand anything about it.  You want a compelling black character?  Then you write a compelling black character.  You can't just take a white character, change the color of its skin and nothing else, then point to it and say "this means we are racial diversity now."

He was literally designed to be Samuel L. Jackson, of course everyone loves him. Was the previous version even any popular in the first place ? I didn't even know he used to be white when I first saw the SLJ version, I vaguely knew the name (not that I knew much about comics at the time).
The Fantastic Four, despite their lack of recognition as serious characters, are still more or less known for their antics. The brain, the hot blonde, the big guy, and the "rich kid with a sports car" - as in "rich white kid" of course.

White fury was huge with fans, samuel jackson was well received because the ultimate comics were neat at start( they got progressively worse).

The one you have in the movies are the ultimates looks with the original's personality.

In the main continuity there are two fury's now, the original one and a black one that is his kid.

Part of it's due to the fact that the original is still running around but yeah you're right.

Some good news and bad news. Good news: Tim Burton is working on a Beetlejuice sequel (http://www.avclub.com/articles/tim-burton-is-reportedly-really-officially-working,104529/). Bad news: it's recent Tim Burton of Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows fame.

You can't just take a white character, change the color of its skin and nothing else, then point to it and say "this means we are racial diversity now."
Sure you can. Ultimate Fury, Liz Allen in Spectacular Spider-Man, even Alicia Masters in the old FF movies (played by Kerry Washington?! holy shit I didn't realize that, but now that I think about it she was a bright spot in those shitty movies) They didn't make a big fuss about it, and it didn't change any of the characters. Well, besides Ultimate Fury, who became "Samuel L. Jackson as spymaster", personality-wise.

Hah, so the black one does go the "new character" route, and I reckon he doesn't get the bad "pandering to diversity by changing an existing character" attention. QED !
Original Ultimate Fury did not go the "new character" route, he was just that universe's version of Fury. I'm pretty sure there were some other race changes in the Ultimate universe but the only other similar change I can think of is Ultimate Colossus being gay. Which is to say, since nothing sticks out, the changes were ultimately irrelevant to the characters, and weren't used to say anything about interesting about diversity or whatever. Well, Colossus, I guess, what with the whole X-Men are minorities angle.

But yeah 616 Fury Jr. just comes off as a silly attempt to make 616 exactly like the movie universe and stuff

There's a John Belushi biopic back in production (http://www.avclub.com/articles/that-john-belushi-biopic-is-back-on-wont-star-any,104579/), and the people being considered are Nelson Franklin (of The Office US and Veep), Emile Hirsch, Adam Devine of Workaholics, and "even Joaquin Phoenix’s name has 'also surfaced,' presumably in the whirls of a mystical fountain divined by a hydromancer who is drunk."

" Kevin Tancharoen Departs Mortal Kombat
Source: Kevin Tancharoen
October 25, 2013
Although he was optimistic about the project just last month, choreographer-turned-director Kevin Tancharoen, the man behind the Mortal Kombat reboot webseries, just announced via Twitter that he is no longer involved in bringing the property to the big screen.

"After 3 years of Kombat," Tancharoen writes, "I've decided to move on to other creative opportunities. I wish everyone involved in the movie big success. Thanks!"

Tancharoen's “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” recently released its second season. The cast includes Harry Shum, Jr. ("Glee") as the warlord adviser "Kuai Liang," Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) as martial arts film actor "Johnny Cage," Brian Tee (The Wolverine) as Shaolin Monk "Liu Kang," and Mark Dacascos (Cradle 2 the Grave) as "Kung Lao" - a close friend of "Liu Kang." Additionally, Ian Anthony Dale (“Hawaii Five-O”) returns as the resurrected ninja “Scorpion,” and Cary Tagawa reprises the role he made famous in the first Mortal Kombat theatrical release as the powerful, arrogant sorcerer "Shang Tsung."

Although Tancharoen hints that the project will move forward without him, no other talent has been named at this time. Check back for details as soon as they become available."

After long time, Ryan Reynolds speaks again about Deadpool movie (http://www.themarysue.com/ryan-reynolds-deadpool-update/). It's short, but an interesting read after all, and sounds like a legit script for Wade Wilson :D I hope this would be done finally
What will we get first, this or the X-Force movie that will probably also include Deadpool?

Evil Dead remake sequel/Army of Darkness 2 news hour time

The director and the co-writer have said they won't be on board with any sequel (http://www.avclub.com/articles/fede-alvarez-and-rodo-sayagues-wont-be-doing-an-ev,104940/), because they're doing an adaptation of that Dante's Inferno game, for some reason. Or wait, maybe they are doing the sequel after all (http://www.avclub.com/articles/hold-on-the-evil-dead-remake-guys-are-probably-sti,105001/), they're just waiting for Army of Darkness 2 to come out, and Bruce Campbell himself said that he and Raimi were going to do that. (http://thedissolve.com/news/719-bruce-campbell-says-hes-making-an-army-of-darkness/)

But then again, one shouldn't trust what comes out of Bruce Campbell's mouth, says Bruce Campbell, because nothing is actually happening yet. (http://thedissolve.com/news/845-bruce-campbell-says-you-shouldnt-trust-bruce-campb/)

I hope the guys who made the remake do come back for the second one in some form, since they really did make that first one so much better than was expected.

The CW is developing a show based on the DC hero Hourman, who invented the miraculous vitamin Miraclo, which imparts an hour of super strength to whoever takes it, (http://www.avclub.com/articles/the-cw-developing-dc-comics-show-about-hero-who-ca,105181/) but it's also addictive and causes cancer, except when it doesn't.

But it seems like the show is just going to focus on the rarely used precognitive abilities of the second Hourman that was given to him by the third Hourman (an 853rd century intelligent machine colony who is awesome and I miss his series and probably doesn't exist anymore because fuck you new 52), and be devoid of any other powers. Seems like it will be Rex Tyler (the first Hourman) in the role, as there is mention of an ex-wife and son. OK then. :-\

Post by: Bad Mr. Basara on November 07, 2013, 09:14:14 pm
^ I like the idea of Hourman has his own series. More than the character itself, I'm more interested about what Hourman implies: he's part of JSA, and that's also mean Earth-2 (pre-New52), and also Infinity Inc. and Hawkman, so it's a good opportunity to see those chars in this series even as cameos
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Jmorphman on November 07, 2013, 09:17:51 pm
It doesn't sound like it would tie into JSA or anything; it sounds like a present day thing, which means no JSA, no Infinity Inc, no legacy heroes, and so on.

Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Jmorphman on November 07, 2013, 09:25:57 pm
But the premise of the show explicitly precludes doing a JSA type deal, unless they make it set in the present day, and have it be unconnected to any JLA movie.

Smallville had room to put in a bunch of WWII era superheroes (with some minor retconning, but nothing major), but this doesn't. Or I guess it could do it but Hourman himself would not be a member. But I doubt they'd do that, because old people are gross and the current DC comics don't have a WWII era JSA either.

I think what the new RoboCop is going to have a hard time trying to replicate is Murphy's inner struggle once he begins to reclaim his human personality. The 1987 film did such a phenomenal job with that subject and it made the film work. Very well. You also had a very convincing antagonist and a well written story to go along with those two things The new RoboCop, while a little interesting, is gonna fail on so many parts. I'm gonna see it for sure, but with expectations and comparisons turned off. Well, the best that I can try at any rate. ;D

Last I heard it wasn't planned until 2016, so that Flintstones remake isn't due for some time.  Then again, I also heard it was going to be oriented for children, which seems weird when it comes to MacFarlane, so I could be mis-informed there.  All I know is Dino is bound to end up learning how to speak and drink martinis.

American Dad is easily the best of his shows, but that's not saying real much.

A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land.

AMC may or may not have ordered a pilot for an adaptation of the comic book Preacher (http://www.avclub.com/article/amc-and-seth-rogen-are-the-latest-to-try-turning-p-105739), which is of course the whimsical tale of a preacher who travels across the country with his girlfriend and a friendly Irish vampire and get into all sorts of crazy adventures.

oh and it's being developed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, which seems weird but I guess This Is The End is kind of sort of similar to Preacher in a way, maybe?

That's absurd and completely myopic of the larger picture (Green Hornet is an old forgotten property no one cares about and they gave it a comedy spin to differentiate it, whereas they'd clearly be more faithful to something like Preacher)

With the way they've set up genetic engineering with the Lizard, Spidey, and possibly Electro (jellyfish, apparently?); it'd make tons more sense to go with "Paul Giamatti gets a rhino injection and grows thick rhino hide (no costume) and then I dunno maybe grows a horn too or something.

It just seems weird that they'd develop a plot thread that would connect all of Spidey's villains' origins to each other and then ignore it to do a goddamn Transformer.

I really like the Ultimate concept of Rhino because it feels like an organic update of the original origin. Well, minus the fact that he can get out of the suit but I'm sure they could've have fixed that in the movie.

Hope there isn't too much with the kid (I guess he's the son of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen), because there's potential to be a bunch of OH NO OUR SON IS IN PERIL stuff and who wants that kind of cheap melodrama.

Fox wants to create its own Marvel movie universe, but with the Fantastic Four and X-Men (http://www.avclub.com/article/fox-creating-its-own-marvel-movie-universe-though-106286), which sounds like a bad idea but it's better than what Sony is rumored to be doing, which is the same thing, making an interlocking Marvel movie style universe, except Sony only has Spider-Man stuff so they're extremely limited on what they can do.

There's gonna be a new Terminator film trilogy that sounds a lot like a reboot (http://www.avclub.com/article/terminator-reboot-now-also-includes-a-new-terminat-106297) except it's not, probably. And Schwarzenegger will be back and somehow is supposed to be playing an non-aging cyborg when he's pushing his seventies. The plot for the first movie will apparently have him protect Sarah Conner throughout her childhood, which is just, what.

and also there will be a tie-in TV show to the trilogy, because it's not enough that the amazing and unjustly cancelled Sarah Connor Chronicles was canceled and ignored by the movies, but now they're gonna make a new TV show that sounds awful and that will tie-in to the movies and will make everyone forget the first show ever existed .\/.

While I love Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, their movie work leaves a lot to be desired (they've literally called their movie scripts schlocky and have even written a book about how they've made a ton of money selling not very good scripts for a lot of money (http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Movies-Fun-Profit-Billion/dp/1439186766), they are pretty upfront that their scripts are not at all good), and I doubt it will be the Garant and Lennon who made Reno 911! writing this. And even if they were, I'd still be wary, because the ZAZ (the trio who made Airplane!, Police Squad/The Naked Gun/Top Secret) style of comedy is pretty tough to pull off well, as their later filmography will readily attest, even they couldn't keep it up. Although David Zucker's descent into crazy right-wing lunacy probably didn't help. (http://www.avclub.com/article/america-hating-flag-burning-commie-pinko-case-file-72981)

And then there's the casting: Ed Helms is a very funny actor but he is absolutely wrong for the role. Frank Drebin needs someone who can effortlessly say the most ridiculous lines completely straight:

I don't think Ed Helms could pull this off. It is the work of a master. I mean, Helms is pretty great at physical comedy, so he'd be pretty adept at the more slapstick-oriented style of the movies, I guess, but still... it just seems like a horrible, horrible idea. The whole thing.

Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) is the new Sarah Conner. (http://www.avclub.com/article/are-you-sarah-connor-no-game-of-thrones-emilia-cla-106500) Funnily enough, her costar Lena Hedley was the last Sarah Conner, whose show The Sarah Conner Chronicles deserved way more attention because it was great and why didn't people watch it but did watch dreck like Salvation? >:[

Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital, Human Giant, Burning Love) will star in an IFC series as a man who lives in a storage facility and is probably mentally ill.

The basic concept is good (villain crossover! the villains have kids too! their kids and the good guy kids meet!) but the way they've set it up sounds really bad (the kids have to be stranded on the evil villain island too? that's really douchey) and it sounds like it'll just be a stupid teen show with all the school elements. And it also kinda seems like the Disney Channel's version of Once Upon A Time, which is very bad, because that show is godawful, and a retread will probably be worse.

Joseph Gordon-Lveitt has directed a grand total of one movie that was pretty mediocre and didn't display any kind of the technical prowess to pull off something grand and sweeping like a movie about the Lord of Dreams.
David Goyer is a terrible screenwriter whose ideas are awful and has trouble with complex hu-mon emotions and motivations, unless the movie is about Wesley Snipes fighting vampires with a sword.
A Sandman movie is a huge undertaking and it will be immensely challenging to capture even a smidgen of the grand scope of majesty of the comics. I don't relly trust any of the people invovled with that, and certainly not DC and Warner Brothers with it.

Shia LaBeouf's directorial debut (http://www.avclub.com/article/shia-labeouf-plagiarizes-daniel-clowes-comic-for-h-106565) is apparently a pretty shameless ripoff of a Daniel Clowes comic. Like, straight up plagiarism. The whole thing, it seems; whole lines of dialogue, visuals, taken wholesale.

Pretty fucking nuts. What a douchebag, that guy.

Deadline reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is finalizing a deal to produce Sandman at Warner Bros. with David Goyer, who pitched his treatment for the Neil Gaiman comic book classic.

It has been rumored that Gordon-Levitt might star, and the deal he’s making attaches him as the protagonist. In addition, he’s eyeing the project as a directing vehicle! Gordon-Levitt made his feature directorial debut on the well received Sundance pic Don Jon. (http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3269399/joseph-gordon-levitt-becomes-sandman-for-warners/)

Ugh. the comic that was about dreams and the essence of being, that touched in shakespeare and homosexuality and all that good stuff that most wouldnt touch with a pole and did it right, the comic that had a sympathetic cute death , done by the people that think superman should snap necks and blow up buildings to look cool.

I can see Morpheus holding a dream shotgun already while hunting down the villain, Despair.  A fat woman with hooks for hands that is driving men to suicide with the help of the sexy big titted Desire.

About time...

http://www.ign.com/videos/2013/12/18/news-frank-darabont-sues-amc-over-the-walking-dead
AMC has as long a history of mistreating it's showrunners as it does a history of making original TV shows. Having said that, I'm pretty glad Darabont got fired because his some of his ideas for the second season were godawful and, aside from the pilot, his work on the series were pretty terrible. Of course, that doesn't excuse the shitty treatment he seems to have been getting.

I can see Morpheus holding a dream shotgun already while hunting down the villain, Despair.  A fat woman with hooks for hands that is driving men to suicide with the help of the sexy big titted Desire.
Since Gaiman has some amount of clout, I suspect it will at least pretend to be a close adaptation. So they'll probably do a Preludes and Nocturnes arc with Dr. Destiny or Lucifer or whoever as the main villain, and then make it a big franchise because Avengers. But it'll be stripped of all subtly and nuance.

he also got in trouble for some comments he made about black people too.
the idiot redneck guy on the subject of growing up in Louisiana pre-Civil Rights ere said:
I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field. ... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people' -- not a word!

Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues

Xbox is producing a slate of original shows, to be broadcast exclusively through Xbox Live. (http://www.avclub.com/article/xbox-to-start-producing-original-shows-starting-wi-106645) The first is a documentary series focusing on the digital age, whose first episode will be about E.T. the video game, and other shows include another documentary series (about soccer players), and a Halo show.

And an update on Duck Dynastygate: the rest of the family doesn't seem that inclined to keep doing the show (http://www.avclub.com/article/the-duck-dynasty-family-cannot-imagine-progressing-106648), as various news commentators like Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin have shrieked in outrage and shouted FREE SPEECH, not really understanding the whole concept of free speech because it doesn't mean you can say hateful shit and be free of consequences from a private party. And it sure is funny that Palin was silent on the issue of free speech when Martin Bashir was fired not two weeks ago after making disparaging comments towards her...

bringing up free speech regarding the constitution for his case isn't really proper. such freedom also means that a&e are free to associate and disassociate themselves with whoever they want to. i just don't like the precedent this sets

i just don't see the point in suspending him, the people that were offended by the comments aren't going to watch the show anymore (they probably didn't watch it in the first place) regardless of his suspension or firing. filming for the season that's airing next is already wrapped up so he'll be featured in all those episodes unless they edit him out.

http://ideas.time.com/2013/12/19/the-duck-dynasty-fiasco-says-more-about-our-bigotry-than-phils/ said:
I’m reminded of something Bill Maher said during the height of the Paula Deen controversy: “Do we always have to make people go away?” I think the question applies in this situation too.

Why is our go-to political strategy for beating our opponents to silence them? Why do we dismiss, rather than engage them? One of the biggest pop-culture icons of today just took center stage to “educate” us about sexuality. I see this as an opportunity to further the discussion, to challenge his limited understanding of human desire, to engage with him and his rather sizable audience — most of whom, by the way, probably share his views — and to rise above the endless sea of tweet-hate to help move our LGBT conversations to where they need to go.

The Shia LaBeouf Plagiarism scandal continues

Quote
Lawyers for Daniel Clowes recently sent LaBeouf’s representation a cease-and-desist letter.

     “Your client is seriously out of control,” the letter reads. “He must stop his improper and outlandish conduct.”

And so, in response, LaBeouf copied the letter to his Twitter feed, followed by a tweet of what appears to be a photo of a Xerox of a photo of the original tweet containing the storyboard—an endless mirror creating layers upon layers of reproduction, in what continues to pass for LaBeouf’s grand unifying statement on how he, and therefore everyone, has nothing to say.

He will apparently continue making that statement until everyone really, truly gets it.

So, notoriously contrarian film critic Armond White (he famously champions Adam Sandler movies as unflinching portraits of emotional honesty that aren't couched in class and gender guilt like Apatow movies, or something insane like that) was very, very upset that the New York Film Critics Circle gave the best director award to Steve McQueen. So he decided to start complaining, loudly. And so he made some very strange, racially charged comments, along with a good old-fashioned "fuck you". During the ceremony. (http://www.avclub.com/article/armond-white-rings-in-another-year-by-calling-stev-106756)

So naturally people are upset with him, especially since he does this shit all the time. So the NYFCC are going to hold a vote to expel him (http://blogs.indiewire.com/criticwire/new-york-film-critics-circle-to-vote-on-armond-whites-expulsion), and good fucking riddance to this shit stain.

To counter-act the prequels, the Boba Fett spin-off movie planned for 2018 has an interesting twist pitched by Episode VII writer Lawrence Kasdan: the spin-off will start with a complete stranger killing Boba Fett and taking his armor, starting a Man-With-No-Name bounty hunter tale. So: someone kills the Boba Fett from the prequels and takes his armor and name. One this is for certain is that Kasdan didn’t like the prequel and wants no Bobba Fett Clone in the spin-off film.

Of course, Quicksilver (and Scarlet Witch) will also appear in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, to be played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Why introduce one version of Quicksilver, then have a second version appear in a different movie (a different studio non-the-less) with a different actor?  Sounds like Fox is playing with (legal) fire.
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Byakko on January 29, 2014, 04:38:48 pm
They're not playing with legal fire. They have the right to the X-Men franchise, QS and SW aren't specifically tied to them, and if Fox had used them sooner Marvel wouldn't have been able to do it, but Whedon or someone else said they'd be important in Avengers 2 and suddenly Fox said WAIT WAIT WAIT they'll be in our film too, and they'll be important, I swear !
They're not playing with fire, if anything they should win if X-Men comes out first, but since everyone knows they went full bullshit on this one and they announced them after Marvel, it doesn't seem like Marvel's in any trouble as long as they don't make them "mutants" or don't have their father be Magneto.

Oh, and that happened months ago.
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Bad Mr. Basara on January 29, 2014, 05:45:52 pm
As the few I know about that, probably was accorded to split character in 2: Pietro Maximoff, son of Magneto who as superspeed as mutant power for X-Men DOFP; and Quicksilver persona, member of Avengers with the same powers, but probably another person unrelated to Magneto and just with superpowers instead being a mutant for Avengers 2
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Jmorphman on January 29, 2014, 06:12:24 pm
He's gonna be Pietro Maximoff in Avengers 2 as well. :I

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch's entire identities don't depend on Magneto being their father. It's not ruinous to their characters. All Fox's shoehorning in of Quicksilver is not really going to affect the twin's appearance in Avengers 2 because there's already a fuck ton of characters in Days of Future Past and no one is going to especially remember Quicksilver's 5 minute scene, and especially not when Wolverine is hogging all the spotlight because he's the best there is at what he does, and what he does is, er, that.

Anyways both Fox and Marvel are legally entitled to use both characters specifically because they fall into a grey area between X-Men and Avengers; Fox however can't mention anything relating to the Avengers when using them and Marvel likewise can't mention anything about Magneto or mutants when using them.

How do you make a romantic remake of a dystopian story?
A better question: how the fuck do you make a romantic remake of a dystopian story that specifically and ruthlessly crushes the idea that "love will conquer all"?

I don't even know if I agree with Tarantino here. He's acting a little childish, but it is a betrayal, and his movies may have less impact if most people know the script before hand.
In any case, fuck the agent.
It seems to be less about the script itself being out there than the betrayal itself:
Tarantino said:
I am not talking out of both sides of my mouth, because I do like the fact that everyone eventually posts it, gets it and reviews it on the net. Frankly, I wouldn’t want it any other way. I like the fact that people like my shit, and that they go out of their way to find it and read it. But I gave it to six motherfucking people! Starting this week, I’ll be setting meetings with publishers.
The betrayal itself probably tainted the entire project in his mind, and he'd rather work on something else instead. It's a real shame but I can't exactly blame him. Besides, he has a ton of other scripts to work on so it's not like we're losing Tarantino movie, we're just gonna get a different one.

oh and now he's suing Gawker (http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2014/01/28/the-novel-legal-issues-in-tarantinos-copyright-suit-vs-gawker/)

New Line has one year to make a Y: The Last Man movie or the rights will revert back to the creators, (http://thedissolve.com/news/1308-new-line-has-a-year-to-make-their-y-the-last-man-m/) and thank god, we're in the home stretch now.

Y'know a female Doom could probably work, but you'd have to be careful to avoid any weird sexual politics in the rivalry. And it goes without saying there should absolutely not be any kind of romantic relationship or one side having a crush on the other.

But Fox is probably the last people I'd expect to delicately handle that. So yeah, ugh.

They could use her new gender to explain her motivation to be the ruler of Latveria and a global powerhouse.  Not like the story hasn't been done before, but a Mrs. Dr. Doom striving to fight against gender inequalities and then going to far to become a villain might make for a good story since we've all seen the normal megalomaniac, control-freak version time and time again.

Psych has been canceled. (http://www.avclub.com/article/usa-cancels-psych-after-eight-seasons-107551) The finale episode is promised to tie up most of the loose ends. Not really unexpected (Maggie Lawson is already a regular on another show), and it was getting long in the tooth anyway. It's a good time to end it.

It's official: AMC is doing a Preacher adaptation (http://www.avclub.com/article/amc-officially-developing-preacher-as-a-tv-series-107573), from executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldburg. Garth Ennis and Steven Dillon are also involved in some capacity and Ennis himself has praised Rogen and Goldburg so it sounds like it's in good hands. I'm pretty curious how they're gonna adapt it for basic cable (not enough to watch it, I'm not really a fan of Preacher, but still) because... well, let's just start with the fact that a major character is named Arseface and leave it at that.

also being adapted: Neil Gaiman's first prose-only novel, American Gods (http://www.avclub.com/article/neil-gaimans-american-gods-is-getting-another-chan-107558), which is really freaking great and I dunno some people are kind of down on it but screw 'em, it's great. >:[
Anyways it hasn't found a network yet, but here's hoping. And then they can do an Anansi Boys spinoff movie/series!!!

Finally, The Michael J. Fox Show is on its last legs (http://www.avclub.com/article/nbc-basically-cancels-the-michael-j-fox-show-107555), it seems very likely that it will be canceled. Which means that once again NBC's new comedies have all failed, and they'll have to grudgingly renew Parks and Rec and Community again because they can still outperform every new show NBC brings out each year. Six seasons and a movie is gonna happen bitches!

If this does not tie into Shaq Fu 2 someway, somehow, there will be blood to pay.

I also suspect some reference to the many Slam Jam mixes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1UuEHmxG0U).

But wait, will they use old Lola or new Lola?

OK a Space Jam sequel sounds pretty fucking stupid (because that movie was awful) but I guess it probably makes financial sense. However, shut up. Something more important just happened.

NBC is making a Heroes sequel miniseries. (http://www.deadline.com/2014/02/nbc-heroes-miniseries-2015/)

I just... why? Why??? Was anyone asking for this besides creator Tim Kring? Like literally anyone? It went from the pop culture sensation to failing dud within less than a year, who wants more? This is the show that, after being hailed as "Lost done right"*, so decidedly shit the bed creatively, that it so thoroughly erased all the goodwill it had built up, somehow getting worse and worse each season until they reached the nadir: season four, the one where the bad guys were evil carnies.

*one must remember this came early in Lost's third season, where it was at its most wheel-spinning-iest; Heroes could do something like "Company Man" (which is probably the only episode of Heroes worth rewatching, looking back) while Lost had polar bear cages for weeks. Of course, Lost then kicked into high gear, culminating with its amazing third season finale (NOT PENNY'S BOAT :_;) while Heroes started showing its seams in its season finale. And then season 2 happened.

There will be another version of Anchorman 2 coming out in theaters, with pretty much all new jokes (http://www.avclub.com/article/anchorman-2-coming-back-with-new-jokes-and-an-r-ra-201342). This is somewhat similar to the direct-to-DVD alternate cut of Anchorman 1, which had an entirely different plotline composed of alternate takes and cut scenes. Pretty weird, but I'm probably gonna go see it!

The Lego Movie sequel already has a release date. (http://www.avclub.com/article/that-lego-movie-sequel-has-a-release-date-201376) Pretty nuts, hopefully they can keep the same quality as the first one.

I hope nobody was excited for that iZombie TV series, because it looks like they are changing everything from the original story other than the fact that the main character has to eat brains.  None of the characters on the show are characters from the books.

Quote
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero’s TV adaptation of the Vertigo comic iZombie has made its first casting choices, including the male lead. That role, a police detective named Clive (a character who wasn’t in the comic), has gone to Malcolm Goodwin, who starred in the A & E series Breakout Kings. Alexandra Krosney of the sitcom Last Man Standing and Alias‘ David Anders have also been cast as female lead Liv’s best friend, Peyton, and the chief antagonist, Blaine, respectively.  If none of those names look familiar, it’s because the TV version of iZombie is shaping up to be vastly different from the Chris Roberson and Mike Allred-created comic that inspired it. Even the lead character’s name has apparently changed from Gwen to Liv.  The one remaining plot point from the comic appears to be that the lead character has to eat brains to keep her human appearance. But the plot of the show is pretty wildly different from the comic, which featured gravedigger Gwen getting into strange adventures in Eugene, Oregon, with her supernatural friends.

A week after Terry Gilliam shared the ending (http://www.avclub.com/article/terry-gilliam-had-suitably-crazy-ending-mind-watch-201681) to the Watchmen movie he was attached to but never made, Visonary Director Zack Snyder says he himself made the Watchmen movie to save it from the Terry Gilliam's of the world. (http://www.avclub.com/article/zack-snyder-says-he-made-watchmen-save-it-terry-gi-201743)

And you know, he's right, only he could save Watchmen from falling under the thumb of such awful people like Terry Gilliam, member of Monty Python, director of such classics as Brazil and 12 Monkeys, Alan Moore's first and only choice as director. Only the visionary director of Sucker Punch and Man of Steel could truly bring Moore and Dave Gibbon's masterpiece to life. Ayup.

Hey, he hadn't made those movies yet when he did Watchmen, just 300.
The movie's problems were the techno, slow-mo and bone breaking action (x-ray style), but if that's not a huge problem to you, the movie was just fine. The ending made just as much sense as that of the comic, and the giant squid would have been too over-the-top, so just regular nuking was a logical alternative, while still working out in context for what it was supposed to to.

Well, if it's about the guys being regular people in masks (they get turned into brawling freaks who break bones with a punch and smash through walls and shit), in the end the fights were just cosmetic, IMO the point demonstrated by Ozy is still there (in the end they don't matter one bit and they're regular powerless individuals). The superhero-tier fights are just eye-candy. It's annoying if you really want to stick to the original comic with regular everyday Joes, but you can chalk it up to Hollywood otherwise and still enjoy the point.
I liked that quote from I don't remember where that went "it's a superhero story where Superman is a retired mysanthrope and Batman has erectile dysfunction issues". It's still a good summary, and IMO that's all the movie needed to keep, even with the bone-breaking action.
Title: Re: entertainment news that don't deserve their own thread
Post by: Jmorphman on March 04, 2014, 01:15:45 am
I dunno, the fight scenes were just so over the top, reveling in the violence instead of having it be appalling and an example of the heroes overreach (which then leads into the larger theme of Ozymadias taking that judge, jury, and executioner stance of the other vigilantes to the worldwide stage) and so brutal (although, I think if maybe there was a strong was something added to the fight scenes that showed how detached the heroes are, how fucked up mentally they are to do this, it could've worked, maybe). But as it is it just comes off as being cool for cool's sake, and it's very jarring, tonally.

(although, I think if maybe there was a strong was something added to the fight scenes that showed how detached the heroes are, how fucked up mentally they are to do this, it could've worked, maybe)
Rorschach's character is all that's needed for that viewpoint (his detached attitude in everything) - and that only makes his final scene all the more powerful.
I think the root of this separation is Nite Owl's costume that just looks like a straight-up copy of Batman - the Dark Knight when it was pretty silly in the comics. And I just don't think that the comics version would have worked more than 2 seconds before being completely ridiculed. So in a way I just don't see how the Dark Knight could have been avoided, and that's what just made the Hollywood-superhero fights something obvious.

edit - oh hey, at least it wasn't done by Warner Bros along with the other DC movies of today ! So in a way it couldn't have been done before because superhero movies were garbage, and it couldn't have been done after because Warner Bros doesn't even care about sticking to the source material one second. At least Snyder stuck to the slightest panel. ... I mean beside the bone-breaking punches.

As reported in a report from The Hollywood Reporter reporter Rebecca Ford, the game’s creative director, Neil Druckmann, will write the screenplay for a film adaptation of the post-apocalyptic zombie-virus survival game. That’s a departure from standard practice for game-to-film adaptations: The typical approach is to not give a shit who writes the movie and also to cast Dennis Hopper as Bowser.

It’s not clear how much Druckmann will need to (or choose to) rework his original script, as Joel and Ellie’s journey across the virus-ravaged American interior already hews closely to a three-act structure. Plus, the characters in The Last Of Us have depth and nuance, and their motivations feel humane and authentic. In other words, this isn’t exactly Mortal Kombat here. Naughty Dog, the game’s development studio, makes games with a cinematic feel—the developer’s Uncharted series has been described with the phrase “it’s like playing an action blockbuster!” on so many occasions that most critics have set up a keyboard macro so they don’t have to type the whole thing every time. That said, Naughty Dog has had some trouble making the jump from cinematic video games to cinematic cinema. A proposed Uncharted movie has been stuck in a desultory development process for years, with the latest news being that Seth Gordon is slated to direct, for now. There’s no director attached to The Last Of Us yet, but if Uncharted is the precedent, there will be plenty of directors to come.

Well considering how narrative driven the game is and how much naughty dog games ape hollywood these days, this might not be a bad idea.

Also, very funny comedian Paul F. Tompkins will be the lead in a pilot for ABC (http://www.avclub.com/article/paul-f-tompkins-star-new-abc-pilot-probably-201980), playing a teacher who decides to quit his job and move to New Hampshire to open tourist cottages. Hopefully there will be some kind of narrative device that forces his character to adopt a series of disguises patterned after various famous people, like perhaps the Cake Boss (Cake Boss!) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJDRaAWRUrc), Werner Herzog (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rARtOlFENJg), Garry Marshall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah_s_bxLF1g), and/or Dame Sir Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eez6KUhR7ZI).

In an homage to the “Bronies” subculture, Tina attends her first Equestra-con, a convention based on her favorite animated pony show, “The Equestranauts.” To her surprise, she finds that the show’s fans are middle-aged men (called “Equesticles.”) When a powerful super-fan tricks Tina out of her rare toy pony it’s up to Bob to go undercover and get it back.

Fox canceled Raising Hope, (http://www.avclub.com/article/fox-cancels-raising-hope-202016) which sucks because that's such a nice, sweet, charming show. I hope the cast finds new work soon because they're so goddamn great. :(

Yesterday, The Simpsons said goodbye to Mrs Krabappel. (http://www.avclub.com/article/simpsons-finally-said-goodbye-mrs-krabappel-last-n-202010) I cried. :'(

Charlie Sheen apparently hasn't been showing up to work on his FX sitcom Anger Management, (http://www.avclub.com/article/charlie-sheen-delaying-tv-show-he-got-delaying-pre-201992) prompting the use of a stand-in to shoot scenes without him. His show is already doing horribly in the ratings, but FX is mandated to make 100 episodes of the thing; I'm sure they've got a legal team pouring through that contract looking for some way to use this as a way out of it.

Finally, Ed Helms is going to star in a movie that is seriously called Epic Fail. (http://www.avclub.com/article/ed-helms-star-epic-fail-movie-actually-called-epic-202038)

Eh, Smallville didn't really pretend to be super grounded. Maybe the first season or two, but you very quickly ran into immortal kung-fu witches; by the end of the series everyone from Braniac to Metallo to Doomsday to Darkseid had shown up.

But I guess they did sort of do the whole "make fun fantastical things boring and 'realistic'" with their version of Mister Mxyzptlk, who was, naturally, a foreign exchange student from Eastern Europe who came to Clark Kent's high school to run an underground gambling ring and had Scarlet Witch's powers.

Smallville was fucking terrible, you guys.

Honestly I prefer a costume more inspired with realistic clothing (Arrow works fine on that, as long as it's not "just a jacket with one symbol tacked on it") rather than a full body suit like this one, even disguised to look less uniform.

I dunno, the 90's series's sculpted muscles looked pretty goofy. What worked on the Batman costumes doesn't really work when the outfit is bright red. :-\

OK, so, potentially huge FF news: there's a rumor going around that Fox wants to dump the director, screenplay, and cast of the FF movie, six months before shooting is supposed to begin (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/03/14/fox-looking-to-dump-fantastic-four-director-screenplay-and-recast-six-months-before-they-are-due-to-shoot/).

Then, a Marvel exec tweeted a picture of Galactus (https://twitter.com/AgentM/status/444592988899905536), with no context. People started going nuts, thinking it's a clue. There are already rumors of Marvel trying to do a villain swap type deal, like they wanted with Daredevil (Marvel wanted Galactus and Silver Surfer from Fox in exchange for Fox keeping Daredevil a bit longer). Still others are saying that Fox is gonna lose the rights entirely, or cede creative control to Marvel but still distribute it, like Universal did with Hulk.

But it's all rumors at this point. It's entirely possible that the new FF will proceed on schedule, and we won't be able to see an actually good FF movie for many more years. Unless of course you count The Incredibles.

Quote
After journeying to the outer limits of space, giant robots, and Mark Wahlberg’s acting ability, Michael Bay will soon follow the lead of other blockbuster directors and little mermaids and head under the sea. The Hollywood Reporter says Paramount has picked up an untitled adventure pitch for Bay to produce and potentially direct, one where its plot details remain a mystery, possibly even until after it premieres. However, it is known that this thriller will be steeped in “real science”—though few who have seen Armageddon, which was based on the writings of Carl Sagan, would expect anything less from Michael Bay. And it’s also known that it will have an “undersea component,” as Bay journeys down to where each little clam here knows how to jam here. That’s why it’s hotter under the water. (Also because of the fireballs.)

Remakes really are truly contagious, as there’s now a Jem And The Holograms movie in development. While a gritty movie about a group of kick ass pop stars and/or secretive regular folk could be great, news of who’s actually developing the movie—Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum, and GI Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu—should give fans pause. To the trio’s credit, Braun, Blum, and Chu have created an official Jem website and are seeking fan contributions toward making the live-action movie. Chu says that, “rather than asking for money,” the group’s asking for creativity, including help writing the songs, designing the costumes, and even casting the flick. In fact, aspiring Jem wannabes can even send audition tapes via the aforementioned website, something that will probably prove to be as annoying and fruitless as those endless American Idol audition specials.

(http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/columbia-pictures-reportedly-working-on-dark-edgy-sonic-the-hedgehog-movie/#)

Quote
Hollywood insider website The Tracking Board is reporting today that a big-budget Sonic the Hedgehog film is currently in production over at movie studio Columbia Pictures.

According to the site, the movie will be a “dark, edgy version skewed towards older audiences,” and will be a mixture of live-action and CG animation. (I’m picturing a project done in a similar fashion to films such as Garfield or Alvin and the Chipmunks, just obviously with a much different overall tone.) With how the Sonic series has evolved over time, and the introduction of far more human characters to the world, this isn’t as surprising a direction as it may originally seem.

However, it does bring up at least one interesting question instantly: will Doctor. Eggman be real or CG? If they do go the live-action route for him, then I can’t help but think back to a certain fan-created poster that imagined Danny DeVito in the role.

Sonic is no stranger to the world of entertainment, and this isn’t even the first official Sonic movie to be produced—of course, the other was a direct-to-video anime release developed by well-known Japanese animation house Studio Pierrot.

Because everyone knows when you mix Sonic with 'dark' and 'edgy' only good things ever come from it. (http://1-media-cdn.foolz.us/ffuuka/board/vp/image/1368/90/1368903817640.jpg)

Fifth and final Phantasm movie incoming (http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3285913/breaking-phantasm-ravager-story-details-and-full-cast/)
Quote
BREAKING: It was officially announced to Bloody Disgusting by Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli Thursday that Phantasm: Ravager has completed principle photography. For those wondering, it will be the fifth and final entry in Coscarelli’s classic horror Phantasm series.

For the first time in the franchise’s history, a new director is helming the production, one David Hartman. Hartman is a multiple Emmy-nominated animation director, whose work can be seen in such celebrated shows as “Transformers Prime” and “Roughnecks: Starship Troopers.” Serious genre fans have long been familiar with Hartman’s edgier output, including two blood-soaked music videos for Rob Zombie (“American Witch,” and “Lords of Salem”), and his illustrations of Steve Niles’ “Strange Cases” for Image Comics.

Ravager features Reggie Bannister (a veteran of all five films) in his decades long pursuit of the malevolent Tall Man, and it finally forces him to confront the mysteries at the heart of the Phantasm saga. The entire original cast is back including Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester and Angus Scrimm, along with some great new characters. “There are also some surprises thrown in that I promise will astonish long-time fans,” teases Coscarelli.

The original Phantasm was a worldwide critical and box office smash, spawning a huge cult of fans around the world and three well received sequels.

Coscarelli co-wrote the film with Hartman and produced the film under his Silver Sphere banner along with Executive Producer Brad Baruh.

“I felt it was time to let someone else play with my train set,” noted Coscarelli, speaking to David Hartman directing the fifth film. “David and I go back to my film Bubba Ho-Tep. He did terrific visual effects on that, and more recently created a wild animated sequence and some amazing visual effects in my most recent film, John Dies at the End. Our aesthetics are in sync and he’s quite an experienced director in his own right,” Coscarelli stated.

“Having worked with Don [Coscarelli] before, and being a huge fan of the entire Phantasm franchise, it was a great honor to do Ravager with him,” added Hartman. “This film is a real turning point in the series. There’s real closure for the core characters that I hope fans will respond to. We were fortunate to shoot amazing new sequences with horror icon Angus Scrimm—he has terrific scenes with Reggie (Bannister) and Mike (Michael Baldwin) that are truly powerful.”

Production on Ravager took place in secret in and around southern California over the past two years. “The Phantasm films have been a guerrilla operation for decades now, totally outside of the studio system,” Coscarelli notes. “We do them for the fans, and I think Ravager will definitely please them. In the past few years several studios have made offers to remake Phantasm with large budgets, but the fans were very vocal that they wanted the original cast to return and finish this iteration of the story with class. And for the first time there’s an extended sequence on the Tall Man’s home world. I know Phantasm fans will be as excited as I am to see it.”

At the same time there's not a lot of different ways you can show a dude on a hovering wheel-less wheelchair. And it's kind of the point of being in a wheelchair that he can't be in any other position :P

He shouldn't have been placed in the front most part, covering the other characters though. I dunno, it just looks really awkward for me.

Good point, but then you don't get to see his awesome hovering wheel-less wheelchair of death from the future. So...

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is probably getting a sequel. (http://www.avclub.com/article/tucker-dale-vs-evil-probably-getting-sequel-202749)

The first was a pretty fun movie, hopefully this one is the same.

Oh dear.
Goddammit. And it sounds like he was basically forced out, maybe? (http://www.avclub.com/article/boondocks-aaron-mcgruder-confirms-he-wont-return-f-202818)

Well, fuck that. I was really looking forward to another season, and McGruder was so integral to the show that I have no interest in seeing this new season.

It's Goin' Down is probably about the most perfect finale The Boondocks can ever have anyway.

MUSTACHE-LESS GORDON, A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE >:[

I'm calling it now: they'll have a shaky first season, then the actor will pull a Frakes and just not shave his mustache on the first day of shooting the next season. The show will suddenly become a fan favorite.

Fox hires a new writer for Chronicle 2. (http://www.avclub.com/article/fox-hires-new-writer-chronicle-2-202917) This comes after rejecting the pitch by the first movie's screenwriter (which would be totally disconnected from the first, and focus on a lady becoming the world's first super-villain. Instead of something cool like that they're probably just gonna do a straight up sequel starring the only surviving powered dude from the first one, who also happened to be by far the least interesting and dullest character in the movie. Hurray!

The guest list for the third season of Comedy Bang! Bang! (the TV show) was announced. (http://www.avclub.com/article/exclusive-here-are-seasons-comedy-bang-bang-guest--202858) And I'm sure there are exactly zero people here besides me who cares. :(

But now, some really good news: visonary screenwriter David S. Goyer wants to do another Green Lantern movie. (http://www.avclub.com/article/david-s-goyer-would-also-do-another-green-lantern--202936) Just imagine how much worse that Green Lantern movie would've been if Goyer was involved!
