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.

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.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Well at the ABC UpFront presentation today, Joss Whedon showcased a long trailer for the ABC upcoming series ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘, which will focus on the agents and other superheros from the Marvel universe, which I bet will tie in loosely with the next ‘Avengers’ film. The series will air in the Fall on Tuesdays at the 8pm time slot. I cannot wait for this.  The trailer looks amazing. And yes, COULSON LIVES!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

We all saw this coming, right?  Disney CEO Bob Iger announced today that Joss Whedon will be back to write and direct the sequel to ‘The Avengers’.  Add to that, Whedon will head up a live action TV series involving the Marvel characters.  There is no title or release date yet for the sequel, but it’s look like it will be at least 2015 before the sequel hits.

Hi Bryan Here…..

Joss Whedon revealed that he worked on secret project on twitter last night and released sort of a press release about it.  Whedon brought us the Buffy universe, the Firefly universe, and now he is bringing us ‘The Avengers’ for Marvel.  This secret project definitely sounds interesting.  Check out the website HERE.

Hi Bryan Here….

Kenneth Branagh wasn’t the only director on ‘Thor’.  It seems that Joss Whedon directed the “after credits” scene that Marvel Films has come so accustomed to since ‘Iron Man’.  Joss Whedon as you know will be directing the upcoming epic ‘Avengers’ film.

Hi Bryan Here…

Did you ever think we would get an ultimate big budget Avengers film??  I didn’t.  But with he success of all these comic book films and ever since Iron Man one is where Marvel Comics pretty much took control over their characters and films was the start of this whole Avengers film.  All those years ago.

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 Saddest Moments in TV History!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 17th, 2019

Days are getting shorter and it’s starting to feel slightly cooler outside. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of autumn where leaves start to fall and orange spiced everything is available for mass consumption. This new season also signifies going back to school, starting something new whether it be a different job or living in another city. Whatever the case may be, it’s for sure an emotional ride.

Thank goodness for entertaining television though, right?

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.

4K UHD Review: ‘Justice League’!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 13th, 2018

 

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Dan Moran)

There are several things about Justice League that are good. I think the cast is terrific. Gal GadotBen AffleckJason Momoa, and Ezra Miller are great in their roles. They each have a character moment (earned or not) that makes me interested in seeing their next solo adventure. DC/WB has put some talented filmmakers in charge of the next slate of movies. Justin Lin doing Aquaman sounds great, Patty Jenkins taking Wonder Woman on her next adventure, and Matt Reeves writing and directing The Batman. These are world-class filmmakers who have a great actor in the title role and hopefully that leads to some great story telling. I have no idea who is directing The Flash but I did enjoy him as the comic relief character in Justice League and would like to see if he is more than that in the future. Even Henry Cavill’s “new” Superman was delightful as he is reborn in this film and is no longer a whiney douchebag with terrible parents. Man of Steel 2 is actually on my radar now! But those are the nicest things I can say about Justice League. I loved the cast and I look forward to their solo adventures because having them all together in whatever Justice League was/is/supposed to be was a horrific insult to the fans of DC and moviegoers in general.

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….

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.

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.

There’s a new Justice League Trailer!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

At San Diego Comic-Con today, the cast and crew of the upcoming Justice League movie debuted more footage, which looks amazing. Zack Snyder’s style is all over this film, however you can tell where Joss Whedon stepped in. The trailer shows all sorts of actions, characters and gives more insight on just what is going on in the film and where it’s going.

DC Announces its next movie will be Shazam!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The cat is out of the bag. The next big movie in the DC Cinematic Universe will be Shazam!, which is a story about a boy who transforms into the mightiest mortal on Earth. Filming should begin at the start of 2018 and will release the following year. They even have a director now, which is David F. Sandberg – a horror filmmaker. Sandberg made Lights Out and the upcoming Annabelle: Creation, according to THR. That’s pretty much it. Now he’s getting a big comic book franchise. It’s exciting for sure and judging by Lights Out, I’m sure he’s more than capable.

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

One of the finer horror/comedy movies to ever be released on the big screen is finally getting the 4K UHD treatment. That movie is The Cabin in the Woods, meaning we will get all those monsters and mermaids in glorious HDR. I just can’t wait to watch this all over again. The 4K release will also come with the standard Blu-ray, as well as the Digital Copy, which will release on September 5th. Below is all the information you’ll need.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Bryan Kluger 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.
