Dec/2018

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Again, how old am I? It’s the 25th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (The Movie) and is getting a Blu-ray release and for the first time ever – a digital HD release #DigitalVampires.  Joss Whedon sure struck gold with this horror-comedy vampire genre that took place in high school, which spawned one of the best tv shows ever made. With an-all star cast that includes Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens, Luke Perry, Ben Affleck, and Rutger Hauer, it’s all vampires, blood, guts, cheerleading, and prom.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Good news and bad news, folks. The good news is that Fox is releasing two amazing TV Shows for their Anniversary  on September 19th, being Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly from Joss Whedon. There will be new packaging and collectibles with each set. The bad news is that there still isn’t and won’t be a Blu-ray or high definition version of Buffy, which just sucks and drives a stake right through my heart. This show looks terrible and is in badly need of an HD upgrade.

Hi Bryan Here…


It is very difficult to imagine a Buffy Universe without any involvement from its creator, Joss Whedon.  I can’t believe it was 1992 when I was first introduced to Buffy.  I was 11 years old.  Then I went on to enjoy the Buffy universe through tv shows and loved every minute of it.  But now, we will get a reboot on the big silver screen of the Buffy universe.

The TV series  may have ended but Joss Whedon continued the series in comic book form right where season 7 left off.

Season 8 of the Buffy universe debuted a few years ago and it is pretty spectacular.  Great storytelling and artwork.  Now it is getting the motion comic treatment on bluray and will be released on January 4th, 2011.

No extras have been announced but Fox says trivia, artwork galleries, and featurettes will most likely make it to the release.

Very excited about this.  Love me some BUFFY.

Justifying the Female Villain: An Essay by Tuesday Shank!

Justifying the Female Villain

By Tuesday Shank

(Find Tuesday Shank on Twitter and Instagram!)

I stumbled through my college career. After the better part of six years, I began my work on my senior thesis. I undertook the easiest thesis I could think for myself to do: analyze a television show. My advisor’s academic expertise was gender studies. As a fan of Joss Whedon, I knew of Joss Whedon’s reputation for feminist characters and decided to use my thesis to sing Whedon’s praises.

Thus, I began my work on “Careful Jayne, You’ll Scare the Women: An Analysis of Gender Representations in the Television Show, Firefly”. I watched Firefly enough that I’m still not eager to see it again. Halfway through the semester, I just wanted to watch anything else.

Film Review: ‘Rebel in the Rye’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

The Catcher in the Rye took the U.S. by storm nearly from its initial printing. The author, J.D. Salinger, transformed from obscurity to magnified limelight causing him to retract from the world. The more the public wanted to know him or be his infamous character, Holden Caulfield, the more withdrawn Salinger became which increased the mystery. In the past 66 years, the novel has been printed, re-printed, translated and massively distributed throughout the world. Schools have both required and banned the reading for reasons of profanity and its message. Rebel in the Rye details Salinger’s (Nicholas Hoult) life and progression as a writer. From his early years as a willful, smart mouth to an obsessed literary giant. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This is definitely on my radar now. Jeff Bridges and Chris Hemsworth, meaning The Dude and Thor are most likely going to star in a new film called Bad Times at the El Royale, which will be directed by Drew Goddard and released by 20th Century Fox. Despite the awesome two actors and the cool title, filmmaker Drew Goddard is one to watch for sure.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Cruel-Intentions_612x380_0

Cruel Intentions‘ was a popular movie back in 1999. It starred a young Sarah Michelle Gellar, a young Ryan Phillippe, and a young Reese Witherspoon. Not to mention a dozen other “before they were famous” stars now. It was so popular back then, that it spawned a sequel or two. Now, NBC is doing a tv series, which is I guess a sequel of sorts. And Sarah Michelle Gellar has just signed on to reprise her role from the original 1999 film.

Dallas Comic Con 2015: Georges Jeanty Interview!

cbr-georges-sdcc13-pic

Georges Jeanty is known in the comic world as the man who reinvented Buffy and Kate Kane, aka Batwoman. Did you know Joss Whedon asked for him personally? He wanted someone who draw comic book style art but still hang on to the likenesses of our favorite characters. Jeanty has a penchant for that. I had the distinct pleasure to talk to him at Fan Expo Dallas and ask him about his work with Joss and on the Buffy series and other Joss projects. He was gracious and kind, and I look forward to talking with him again.

Top 10 Soundtracks We Want To See Released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

say-anything

Many of you might already know that I love listening to movie soundtracks. I always have. Since I was a little tyke who could barely see over a counter, I was infatuated with movie scores and soundtracks, particularly the ‘E.T.‘ original motion picture score and the ‘Beverly Hill Cop‘ soundtrack. From there, my love and passion grew for all types of music. My parents had a pretty good record collection that included all three original ‘Star Wars’ albums, ‘The Wizard of Oz‘, and ‘Star Trek I and II’ to just name a few. Throughout the years, I now have a fun record collection that spans all genres of music from Frank Zappa to Rage Against the Machine, from R.L. Burnside to The Pixies, and so on. Along the way, digging through the dirty stacks of crates at local record shops and estate sales, I became hell bent on having one of the best Soundtrack collections. And over the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to acquire some very sought after albums. But there are still so many soundtracks that have never found their way to vinyl, either commercially or ever really. So here is a list in the hopes that maybe Varèse Sarabande, Mondo, or Death Waltz will consider releasing these albums in the near future.

Comic Con: Dallas Fan Days 2015!!

Hillary T., Here…

cc011

As a fangirl, I love comics and dressing up. I love being someone else for one day and let’s not lie, Comic Con is my mother ship. This weekend was no exception. I spent two days basking the glory and adoration that was formerly Sci-Fi Expo and is now Fan Days 2.0! It’s my family, and walking through the doors of the Irving Convention Center is always like being at home. It is very much like a space ship or the Sandcrawler from ‘Star Wars’, with its four levels, an over powering awning, and yet, when the parking attendant took mine and Taylor’s (lead camera) money, we were excited and ready to get out of the car and start mingling with everyone and see what Fan Days 2015 had to offer. I decided to go ahead and dress up, because hey, who doesn’t like it when press looks like someone else? My costume of choice? Totally obscure and amazing! I was ready to go as Special Agent Dale Cooper, from Twin Peaks. I even brought along a thermos of “Damn fine coffee,” and a bag of donuts. Dead Laura Palmer would be waiting for me at the convention, for sure!

The New ‘Daredevil’ Series Comes to Netflix on….

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Mark your calendars for April 10th, because that is when the new Marvel series ‘Daredevil‘ will debut exclusively on Netflix. Season one will have 13 – one hour episodes, which will all be available at midnight on April 10th. I really enjoy the first attempt at the feature film that starred Ben Affleck, Jon Favreau, Colin Farrell, and Michael Clarke Duncan. Let me rephrase that, I enjoyed the director’s cut of the film, which is Highly Recommended. But this new series is shaping up quite nicely.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Paul-Feig

With the death of Harold Ramis came the end of what I hoped for when I thought of a Ghostbusters 3. Not only did we lose Ramis but we lost Ivan Reitman as director also. A sequel effort had been talked about, hoped for and in various stages of development since the second film released. I never miss a chance to give a “Don’t cross the streams!” quote, especially when my boys are peeing off the porch. As a fan, I had to bury my hopes for gathering the original crew of Ramis, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray along with the comedic genius when he passed.

As a huge fan of Buffy, I couldn’t believe it when my friend Michael Champion posted a picture from DCC Fan Appreciation Day with James C. Leary, known for his role as “Clem” on seasons six and seven of Buffy the  Vampire Slayer. I thought to myself, “How does he know THAT guy?” So I did what any good Fangirl would do, I stalked his Facebook page. Turns out his path and mine were about to cross in a seriously awesome way- James works in Austin, at company run my by, none other than my brother. This was my IN, my way to a dialogue. My message to him on FB starts, “So do you know Josef Hall?”

So we’ve known for a while that there is going to be a re-make of the Marvel superhero ‘Daredevil‘. We know that Marvel has partnered with Netflix to bring us a 13-episode drama based on the comic book stories of the blind, lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen.

We’ve known for a while that Charlie Cox (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) is going to play the eponymous Matt Murdock/Daredevil, and that Vincent D’Onofrio (‘Law and Order‘)  is going to play the juxtapositional Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin. Today, we’ve gotten some more casting news. Deborah Ann Woll, Jessica from ‘True Blood‘ has been given the role of Karen Page.

FILM REVIEW: ‘COHERENCE’!!!

by Justin Cline on Jun 3rd, 2014

Justin C. here…

coherence poster

Certain movies defy traditional review.

It has nothing to do with ambivalence on the part of the reviewer but rather a desire to maintain a spoiler-free experience for moviegoers yet to come. In a time when Hollywood seems hell-bent on telling the same story and over again—practically requiring that any variation on theme be revealed in the trailer—, who am I to do damage to one of its few original, thought-provoking works by revealing too much?

Coherence is one such movie. Read the rest of this entry »

Hello, Jana here,

In_Your_Eyes_Tribeca_poster

Movies have been moving to digital platforms for a long time. I still think back to the original movie collection I had when I became a total movie buff. I actually worked at a video rental store in high school called ‘The Movie Buff’. It was the greatest job in the world and set me up for a life-long fascination with film. Thinking back to that movie collection, I had over 450 VHS tapes. Over the years, I’ve had to get rid of them to make room for the newest platform of DVD’s. Way too many years later, I have no VHS tapes, but have tons of DVD’s and am now copying my collection over to a digital format.

Sony to Reboot ‘Zorro’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 10th, 2014

Hello Jana here,

Zorro

 The last swashbuckler to hit the big screen was Captain Jack Sparrow in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ films, but before him, there was another. Back in 1922 the tales of Zorro gripped the world with his master swordsmanship  and championing the defenseless. Since then Hollywood has made some bank off of the masked man at least a dozen times and with varying success. I’m pleased to announce there is going to be a reboot of the Zorro films. Not so much a reboot of original stories, as a new movie based on a new book about Zorro. If that made sense, I might have a future in writing!

If you don’t know who Dr. Horrible is, I’m going to assume you have been living under a rock, on Mars, or in a cave with no sunlight and/or internet access. ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog‘ is a comedy, tragedy, musical….a comtragical? I like that. I officially coin ‘comtragical’ TM pending. The story in 3 separate acts stars gorgeous voices and wonderful voices from Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day.

You can’t call yourself a proper sci-fi geek without quieting your outrage at the improper treatment of the genesis television show named after the beloved transport ship that is the Firefly named Serenity. For those of us that memorized insults in Mandarin – Fox programming execs are just BUN tyen-shung duh ee-DWAY-RO, which is to say “stupid inbred stack of meat” – Firefly is the greatest show that never had the chance to burn out on its own. Big nod of appreciation to this site for the translation and pronunciation.

The Top 20 Vampire Movies Of All Time!!!

I love making lists. Grocery lists. Bucket lists. Holiday lists. Favorite movie lists. Favorite VAMPIRE movie lists. I bet that got your attention, didn’t it? This is MY list of the top 20 Vampire movies ever made. Why did I point out that it was MY list? Easy. So you read this knowing it wasn’t an Academy vote that got a movie on this list. No one paid me to promote their movie. However, I’m NOT against this, just to be clear. Why spend time putting movies in a list? Maybe it satisfies some Freudian lack of paternal affection I suffered as a child. But the real answer is, “Why wouldn’t I make a list as awesome as this?”

Hi, Bryan Here….

much-ado-about-nothing_612x907

Joss Whedon has taken off his brown coat and hung up his Avengers costumes for the time being and has given us a laugh-out-loud and fresh telling of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing‘. With amazing characters, comedy at every turn, and an excellent eye for direction, Whedon pulls off this amazing tale with grace and fun, and is different enough to stand on its own from Kenneth Branagh’s version from twenty years ago. I imagine that fans of ‘Firefly‘, ‘Buffy‘, and ‘The Avengers‘ will be first in line this weekend to support their hero Whedon, but I also expect this to gain a bigger following with a wider audience, making a decent theatrical return.

Spielberg’s Next Movie Will Be……

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2010

Steven Spielberg’s next project he will direct will be “ROBOPOCALYPSE”  which is based on an upcoming novel written by Daniel H. Wilson.  The book is set to hit shelves on June 7, 2011 which you can pre order by clicking HERE.

It is a story about humanity trying to survive a robot/android uprising.  Sounds familiar.

Drew Goddard will pen the screenplay.  Goddard’s previous work includes: Buffy, Alias, Lost, Cloverfield, and Angel.

They anticipate a 2013 release for this movie.  After all, Spielberg has got his TinTin films coming out before then.

Click the link/picture below to pre-order the book.  I’m looking forward to reading this.
