Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix has jumped from small-screen and so-so feature film debuts to big-budget film exclusivity. I’m not saying Netflix wasn’t on their A-game before, but being the sole place to find the new Adam Sandler movie is a little different than being the only outlet to carry the new Will Smith (‘Collateral Beauty‘) action flick, and that’s exactly who they are now with the debut of ‘Bright‘.

There are some things that are certainties in life. Disney is slowly making their way through their animated film catalog and reconstructing them as live-action films. Another certainty we can count on is that big stars are climbing onto these new films like crazy. So it’s no surprise that Will Smith is eyeing a leading role in the classic 1941 story ‘Dumbo‘ that’s been in pre-production for a while with director Tim Burton.

When it comes to Marvel comic-to-movie VS. DC comic-to-movie transformations, Marvel has a clear leading edge with interlaced storylines and sheer numbers that have been released. It pains me to type that because I am a DC fan. HUGE fan of DC characters, the heroes and their amazing villains. To me, the villains are absolute top notch and beat out anything Marvel can throw out. The colors, the histories, the wicked laughs and plots are perfectly my brand of crazy. Among these vivid characters that leap off the pages are Two-Face, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn and of course, The Joker.

Brilliance

 The silver screen adaptation of the Marcus Sakey novel ‘Brilliance‘ is courting Will Smith to star. This film was already on a ‘to watch’ list when Julius Onah (‘The Girl Is In Trouble‘), the Nigerian-born up and comer, was on tap to direct, but if Smith signs on to act, it will widen the number of people who will be viewing.

‘Aerosmith’ – The Unbalanced Note #17!

Here is the infamous Music podcast under the MULTI-MEDIA MEN banner called ‘The Unbalanced Note‘, where the show is related to all things MUSIC! Here on this new show, musician Jacob Douglas and I talk about everything we love or dislike about music, musicians, and the music industry.

Smithereens is a film from 1982 that focuses on the end of the punk rock scene in New York City. Directed by Susan Seidelman (She-Devil), the film focuses on a young woman who will do whatever it takes to be a part of the punk scene. I don’t mean a musician either, but rather a groupie or someone in the background. Unfortunately, in real life, there were a ton of these people who met their demise early on in life by way of crime, drugs or alcohol. This one is no different and while it might not be as brutal as Sid and Nancy, it’s just as tragic in a subtle way. It’s a fantastic film and Criterion Collection has brought the film to their amazing collection on Blu-ray. With a new transfer in HD, a mono soundtrack and excellent extras, this film Smithereens is Highly Recommended. Please listen to the review in podcast form below.

Filmmaker Kevin Smith defined a cinematic generation back in 1994 with his iconic motion picture ‘CLERKS‘, which he financed himself on a dozen or so credit cards. Smith enlisted the help of his friends to perform and make the movie itself on a low budget about a couple of people who work at a low-end convenient store and video rental place. It was a philosophical and hilarious look at the lives of everyday people and what goes through their mind. Some 25 years later, ‘CLERKS‘ is still as relevant and important as it was in the early 90s.

Since 1994, Smith has made a ton of movies in a variety of different genres, along with some A-List actors. The dialogue he writes is so realistic, quirky, and downright hilarious yet sentimental that you can’t help but fall in love with all most every character he comes up with. Let’s backtrack three years ago where Smith filmed a TV pilot called ‘HOLLYWEED‘ that stars himself and actor/comedian Donnell Rawlings (Chappelle Show/HBO’s The Wire), where the two work at a cannabis dispensary, talking about their issues with society and going on weird adventures – much like Dante and Randal did back in 1994 at the Quick Stop.

Kevin Smith is everywhere these days. He’s making movies with food that wants to kill you, podcasting in multiple cities, selling his comic books at his retail stores, and even conducting interviews for IMDB at film festivals. “The guy is like MacGyver. No, motherfucker’s better than MacGyver.” Since his last film ‘Yoga Hosers‘, Smith has been making some DC television series on top of teasing us with stories of a ‘Clerks III‘ film and a ‘Mallrats‘ sequel series, both of which I would have sold my Michael Jackson statue to see.

When superstar director Kevin Smith and the man of 1,000 faces, Johnny Depp, put their daughters in a movie together, you know it’s going to be one to watch. and it’s ‘Yoga Hosers’, especially with Depp taking on yet another persona to appear next to his daughter. This one looks very interesting. Justin Long, star of the first of Smith’s True North Trilogy – ‘Tusk‘, appears along with an all-star cast featuring Smith and his partner-in-crime Jason Mewes. The stars are the Colleen’s played by Lily Rose-Madder Depp and Harley Quinn Smith. We’ve even got another appearance by the legendary Stan Lee.

Seth Grahame-Smith Directing DC’s ‘The Flash’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 5th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

480x277_seth_grahamesmith

Seth Grahame-Smith  is putting some distance between himself and the novels that rocketed him to stardom (‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘ and ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘) by turning his eye to directing. The project in question isn’t an adaptation to one of his novels, but to ‘The Flash‘.

Kevin Smith is a film maker that turned the business of making movies on it’s head. He hit the jackpot with 1994’s ‘Clerks‘. The script had “personal experience” written all over it and it made a very unexpected splash. Since then Smith has laid some pretty decent comedy on film, excluding ‘Jersey Girl‘.  I adore most of his films and it all started with ‘Clerks‘. Smith kept the indie-style film making with him the whole way. Nothing could prove that more than his latest film, ‘Tusk‘.

Interview with Kevin Smith at Fantastic Fest 2014!!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 26th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

kevin-smith-ears

We had the distinct honor to talk with the legendary director Kevin Smith in Austin, Tx at Fantastic Fest 2014. Smith is one of the pioneers of the indie film genre with cult hits such as ‘Clerks‘, ‘Mallrats‘, ‘Chasing Amy‘, ‘Dogma‘, ‘Jersey Girl‘, and ‘Red State‘. His new film, ‘Tusk‘ is quite the film. I’ve never seen anything like it. We discuss his ‘Red State‘ premiere in Kansas City, ‘Tusk‘, and his favorite scene in film, which might surprise some of you. It was a pleasure to talk with him and go see ‘TUSK‘. Enjoy!

There are few actors as widely known in Hollywood as Johnny Depp is right now. If you take his fan base and star power and attach it to a  writer-filmmaker of remarkable erudition like Kevin Smith, what results is going to be momentous. Smith has a farcical sense of humor and everything he writes is peppered with the same wry commentary that is fan-freaking-tastic!

I love a good book adaptation, but first, I love the novel. The next book I have to add to my download list, besides Michael Punke’sThe Revenant: A Novel of Revenge‘, is ‘The Good Lord Bird‘ written by James McBride. This adaptation brings in big talent from Liev Schreiber (‘Ray Donovan‘,  and Jaden Smith (‘The Karate Kid‘, ‘After Earth‘).

Hello, Jana here,

Karate_kid_ver2

If you’re the star of a movie that makes $343,000,000 worldwide with a budget of only $40,000,000, you would be safe in betting there is a sequel in your future. If you’re Jaden Smith and you’re one half of the doomed project ‘After Earth‘ and a studio is still willing to bank heavily on you, you thank your lucky stars and say “yes”.  If you can get millions of people to look past the fact that the film is called ‘The Karate Kid‘ and features NO Karate, only Kung-Fu, then audiences deserve way less credit than I give them.  Of course I’m talking about the box office hit and re-make, ‘The Karate Kid‘. The director, Harald Zwart, will not be responsible for this venture as it appears he is going to be tied up with another sequel, ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes‘. Instead, Breck Eisner is taking the reigns. Eisner most recently directed ‘The Crazies‘ that starred Timothy Olyphant and Joe Anderson.

Fox’s Batman prequel series ‘Gotham‘ has been adding names left and right for the past few weeks to its cast. Ben McKenzie will play Jim Gordon while Donal Logue will play Harvey Bullock. Now, the network has cast Jada Pinkett Smith (‘The Matrix‘) in the series. Smith will play a ruthless villain called Fish Mooney, a sadistic mob boss who might be in cahoots with The Penguin.
