The Crow: Shreds of Memories – Fan Film

 

 The Crow is a film/comic series that many of us have loved for years. So it is with great joy and enthusiasm that I introduce Italian film maker Pietro Cinieri, who recently produced a fan-made Crow movie. So what inspired you to create a Crow fan film?  I was inspired by my big passion for Proyas’ film. Furthermore, as a comic lover, I couldn’t not admire O’Barr’s work. These two factors, together with the themes of the story, feed my imagination. What was the production like?  The production wasn’t simple, particularly because it was a zero-budget project. We spent one year finding the right actor for Eric. In 2013 we bean the shooting and the production lasted one year because […]

Metal Pangolin’s Deadpool Review

 

 Deadpool was not treated well the first time he appeared on screen in X-men Origin’s Wolverin. The attempt by 20th Century fox to tell the origin story of the beserker, adamantium skeleton-laced, Canadian, claw popping mutant known around the world as Wolverine. In this botched attempt at a movie, Deadpool was only recognisable as the character he is in the comics by name alone and this left fuming. I guess this is the point in the review where I tell you who Deadpool is and what his powers are and all that other stuff but like the movie, I think it would be appropriate to go back to the start and recount how the character came about in the comics.

ZASCHITNIKI “GUARDIANS” – Upcoming Russian Superhero Movie

We have become so accustomed to superhero’s appearing on the big screen (particularly the Marvel variety) that they no longer seem exciting anymore due to the same formula that they use in their movies. Perhaps this is the beginning of the decline in the comic book movie genre…but, let us not get ahead of ourselves just yet. Let us take the example of this promising movie hailing all the way from Russia. Directed by Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan , “Zaschitniki” or “Guardians” tells the tale of a team of heroes created during the Cold War and imbued with extraordinary powers that allow them to perform incredible feats in the event of an attack by supernatural threats upon Russia. Years pass […]

Alan Rickman – The actor, the voice, the hero

We have lost many cult heroes in January. David Bowie, known for his unique sense of fashion, his movie roles like the Goblin King in Labyrinth and also his hit songs like “Space Oddity” and “Let’s Dance” died after an 18-month battle with cancer on January 10th. Glenn Frey from the band The Eagles who co-wrote the cult favourite song, Hotel California with Don Henley passé away on January 18th. Another legend, Alan Rickman, died on January 14. He died of pancreatic cancer. January is a sad month for those that followed the careers of these legends. But today we celebrate Alan Rickman. He died of cancer at age 69, after quite an impressive career. Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman, born […]

Ash vs evil dead

 

 I adore the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise. I love Ash. He’s amazingly entertaining. And the Deadites are such an entertaining bag of undead crazies. For those that do not know, the Evil Dead franchise is one of the most influential pop-culture film series in history. Before the ‘Supernatural Bromance’ we had Ash, and the deadites. So you can imagine how excited I was when I discovered they were not only making an Evil Dead TV series, but that it was not a reboot, and that Ash would be in it in all his Bruce Campbell like glory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unnLg1TPCYM The series takes place some three decades after Ash returns to Earth. (American ending of Army of Darkness). Obviously, Ash is working in […]

The Brink

 

 America and Pakistan stand on the edge of destruction. The rest of the world has joined them on the precipice. Obviously there is only one man for the job, Jack Black. Yes, that’s correct, Jack Black is the only man capable of saving the world in this twisted black-comedy. Welcome to the wonderfully entertaining American TV show. Welcome to ‘The Brink.’ This short series (10 episodes) follows a diverse group of people, both American and Pakistani, as Pakistan falls to a vile dictator who plans to nuke Israel and more. Obviously the characters have a mixed response with American generals drooling over the prospect of a world war. Pakistani civilians complaining about the dictator. And Jack Black running around making […]

Star wars videos: episode 2

Not so long ago, in basements, dorm rooms and anywhere with a decent pc, fans were slaving away making fan videos….. Guardians of the galaxy star wars trailer Mashup Alex luthor’s Mashup videos are always on point and pretty well done to say the least. This is no exception. When Guardians of the Galaxy was released it was hailed by some as the next Star wars, but we all know that Star wars remains the dominant sci-fi epic. So to put these two in one epic trailer makes for some entertaining viewing. Mad max/Star wars Mashup The popularity of the latest instalment in the mad max movies was sure to lead to this. Watch as furiosa brandishes a lightsaber and […]

Into the badlands

 

 “The wars were so long ago nobody even remembers. Darkness and fear ruled until the time of the barons, seven men and women who forged order out of chaos. People flocked to them for protection. That protection became servitude. They banished guns and trained armies of lethal fighters they called Clippers. This world is built on blood. Nobody is innocent here. Welcome to the Badlands.” – Opening credits. I enjoy Fallout. I enjoy post-apocalyptic worlds. (Apart from Mad Max. I don’t touch anything Australian, on principle). So when I got my hands on ‘Into The Badlands’ -the latest gore fest from AMC- I was rather excited. The show is only six episodes in, and it is pretty much up in […]

Blindspot

 

 There is something delicious about mysteries. For me, it’s the twists and turns of the journey, the encounters with delicious characters and the glorious eureka moment when the scales fall from your eyes and all becomes clear. There is almost nothing as delicious as that. Now my personal choice of mystery/thriller/crime series tends to lean significantly more towards the UK. I’ve always found the British thriller to be far more entertaining and twisted than anything North America can produce. That is until I found Blindspot. Blindspot is a relatively new TV series (September 2015), that revolves around a group of FBI agents and their latest colleague -a tattooed woman with no memory of her life before they found her.  Now […]
