Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven says they'll be using Wonder Woman's DC Comics' "New 52" reboot origin rather than the story imagined by her original writer and creator William Moulton Marston. I think using the New 52 origin in general, much less in these films, is a mistake which diminishes the character and goes against why she was created in the first place.Read More
The Hunger Games and so called "selfie culture"... now there's a prompt from which a whole thesis paper could be made. Not all of Jaemyc's creative juxtapositionings of movie posters with posed subjects provide as much food for thought as this one, but they're still a diverting way to spend a few minutes. We've gathered ten here for your viewing pleasure, but if you'd like to see there rest check out Jaemyc's instagram!Read More
So. Many. Frames.
Stop motion fascinates me, mainly because I know full well that I wouldn't have the patience for it. This quick watch whisks us through stop motion movies old and new, from King Kong to The Boxtrolls. I find myself struck with a powerful need to rewatch The Nightmare Before Christmas.Read More
Not coincidentally, most of the related posts I found were written by Sam.
Hearken back to that long ago time of "last weekend," the time when our associate editor Sam Maggs was my counterpart. I am very glad that she has leveled up, but I admit that my work day doesn't feel the same without her. So, in lieu of her actually being here (sob), I'm going to share this video of her unabashedly fangirling over Robert Downey, Jr. Take it away, Sam.Read More
Thus leaving us agog.
Music services like iTunes brought digital distribution into the spotlight long ago, but in the years since, concern over the ease of copying files have led to Digital Rights Management (DRM) issues and a slew of different solutions. Launched back in 2008 under the name Good Old Games, GOG.com has made a name for itself in DRM-free video games, and they just launched an initiative to bring the same freedom to movies and TV. But will Hollywood go along for the ride?Read More
This is very serious, you guys.

Conner and Palmiotti’s Indestructable Heroine Painkiller Jane Tapped for Movie Adaptation with Female Directors
TIL there are twin ladies who direct horror movies so brb never sleeping again.
Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti's Painkiller Jane is no stranger to film adaptation. The character enjoyed her own made-for-TV movie in the mid-00s that lead to a short lived television series. But now she may see another life on the big screen from horror directors the Soska sisters.Read More
In the strictest sense.
I have a liking for literal humor, so these clever movie posters by Danish Ahmed tickled my funny bone (figuratively). To be honest, I kind of want to see his version of The Wolf of Wall Street. It's got potential.Read More
Review: Syfy's ISA
When we were approached with the possibility of reviewing ISA, a movie collaboration between the Syfy, Chiller TV, and Telemundo, we jumped at the possibility. A cyberpunk movie set in Los Angeles' most Hispanic neighborhoods with a super-intelligent Latina lead? Absolutely up our alley.Read More
