Movie Review: The Snowman

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 01:00:27 +0000

The Snowman
Director: Tomas Alfredson
Screenwriter: Hossein Amini, Peter Straughan
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, Toby Jones, David Dencik, James D'Arcy, J.K. Simmons
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 119 Minutes
Release Date: October 20, 2017

A good mystery thriller has us on the edge of our seats and has us convinced we know who the criminal is at some point in the movie only to realize it wasn't who we thought it was. It builds upon itself with great characters giving more than terrific performances. And it has a story that keeps us engaged for the entire duration.

But Tomas Alfredson's adaptation of Jo Nesbø's The Snowman is anything but the aforementioned qualities. It is sporadic, horribly paced, and lacks any sort of structure. Instead, we are given a fairly predictable film that feels like it was just piled on top of each other trying to pass itself off as a decent movie. My full review below [...]

Trailer For Documentary About Jim Carrey As Andy Kaufman In ‘Man On The Moon’ Released

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 22:00:05 +0000

(image)

When it comes to the best performances of Jim Carrey's career, most would argue his best work was done in either Man on the Moon or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and maybe even The Truman Show for some.

Netflix has released a trailer for a new documentary about one of these performances, titled Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond. The movie features never before seen behind the scenes footage of Carrey on the set of Man on the Moon, in which he played his idol Andy Kaufman and often stayed in character even when not filming.

Trailer For ‘Star Wars: Battlefront II’ Single-Player Campaign Released

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 20:00:28 +0000

(image)

A new trailer has been released for Star Wars: Battlefront II. The new trailer focuses on something the first game did not have, a single-player campaign, which follows Commander Iden Versio (played by Janina Gavankar).

With the unsettling news that EA has decided to close Dead Space developer Visceral Games, and "pivot the design" of the much-anticipated single-player Star Wars game they were working on, the hopes of many of us who aren't content will multiplayer alone lie only with this Battlefront II campaign. If it's not surprisingly good, we'll all be very, very sad.

On that slightly depressing note, continue below to read more about the game and watch the trailer [...]

The Punisher has been riding on the waves of high anticipation since his character debut in season 2 of Daredevil. But much, if not all, of that excitement died out in the wake of the Las Vegas shootings.

Marvel Television respectfully pulled their NYCC panel, which was rumored to unveil the release date. At the time, some believed that the series would be released this month. But a new trailer confirms that The Punisher can be streamed next month. Check out the full trailer below [...]

Tessa Thompson On Valkyrie In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ and All-Female Superhero Movie

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 23:03:47 +0000

While Marvel Studios has paved the way for strong heroines, they still are way behind in getting a female superhero standalone film out. So as fans anxiously await the arrival of Captain Marvel, many other female superheroes are making a case for their own standalone feature and even an all-female Avengers-type film.

Case in point, Tessa Thompson who plays Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok. As Valkyrie, she is a strong fearless warrior who proves to be more than a match for Thor. But she hides a few battle scars that she received from an encounter with Hela (Cate Blanchett).

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast of Thor: Ragnarok, where Thompson talked about her role in the film, her response to some of the changes to Valkyrie, and how she rallied her fellow female superheroes and asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige for an all-female superhero film. More on the story below [...]

South Park: The Fractured But Whole
XBOX ONE l PS4 l PC
DEVELOPER: Ubisoft San Francisco
PUBLISHER: Ubisoft
RELEASE DATE: October 17, 2017

One of my favorite games of 2014 was South Park: The Stick of Truth. A game that transported fans into the world we've been watching on TV for a couple of decades now. Now the highly anticipated sequel, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, has arrived.

In the game you once again play as the new kid in town, a frustratingly quiet kid who also happens to possess some impressive special abilities, especially in the art of flatulence. And as you quickly find out, the neighborhood children are no longer playing in the fantastical world they were in the first game. Now, they've moved on to superhero franchises [...]

EA Closing ‘Dead Space,’ Unreleased ‘Star Wars’ Game Developer Visceral

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 23:45:57 +0000

(image)

It's been four years now since Disney decided to close down longtime Star Wars gamemaker LucasArts and instead sign an exclusive licensing deal with video game factory Electronic Arts. At first things showed some promise, with multiple titles expected including first-person shooter Battlefront, a third-person game from Dead Space developer Visceral Games, and more.

But in the four years since it's all been a bit of a nightmare scenario for fans. And it keeps getting worse, as EA has announced that they've decided to shut down Visceral Games. Though there is some good news: the Star Wars game they've been working on is not being killed off with the developer like Star Wars 1313 was years ago. Not yet, at least. Read the full announcement below [...]

Han Solo Standalone Film Now Called ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 18:10:26 +0000

These Star Wars spinoffs are a part of the larger universe and are meant to tell stories that aren't about the core saga. We saw a little bit of that in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and we will see that once more in the Han Solo standalone film, which has been going by that non-title since the beginning of production and well after Ron Howard came in to direct the film.

But now the film has got an official title. So prepare yourselves, because come May 2018, we will see Solo: A Star Wars Story. More on the this below [...]

Movie Review: Happy Death Day

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 17:00:56 +0000

Happy Death Day
Directed by Christopher Landon
Written by Scott Lobdell
Starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, Laura Clifton, Rob Mello
Blumhouse Productions
Rated R | 96 Minutes
Release Date: October 13, 2017

If you’ve watched the trailer for Happy Death Day, then you know exactly what you are walking into. The writer and director make no effort to hide their influences, to the point of literally name-dropping Groundhog Day and Bill Murray IN the movie. One character’s last name is even credited as “Spengler” (Harold Ramis was Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters). That said, if you’re gonna walk the line between parody and homage, you better be careful and to their credit, writer Scott Lobdell and director Christopher Landon do a pretty great job. In order for this to work, like Groundhog Day, the lead character and actor playing them has to be convincing. While I’m not comparing Happy Death Day's Jessica Rothe to Bill Murray, she does do one hell of a job here and the results are a perfect little 95-minute meta-slasher film right in time for Halloween [...]

All Episodes Of ‘Futurama’ Coming To Hulu This Month

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 14:00:37 +0000

Though it wasn't listed on the lineup of things coming to and leaving this month, Hulu has a surprise for its subscribers. Coming soon to the streaming service (soon like today) is Futurama. Every single episode, including the four straight-to-video movies which helped to bring the beloved animated series back to life in 2010.

But while the news will no doubt be exciting to some, it's not at all surprising. Recently many Netflix subscribers---many of whom routinely fell asleep to episodes each night---were outraged to discover that they would not be renewing their contract with FOX, meaning many shows including Futurama would be disappearing. It was assumed at the time that the show would end up on Hulu, because FOX is a part owner there and it only made sense. And so here we are.
