FanX 2018 – T-minus 5 days

FanX logo

Well, it's crunch time for Salt Lake City's premiere pop-culture event, FanX 2018 (obligatory "screw you, San Diego"). Cosplayers are desperately rushing to finish their outfits, props, and perfect their make-up. Fans are frantically combing through the early version of the schedule and crying over which panels they will have to miss in order to … Continue reading FanX 2018 – T-minus 5 days

Video from Phoenix Comic Fest 2018 – Manu Bennett

Finally got up and running to get this video put together for you. It's a 25 minute "press conference" with Manu Bennett MCed by Kristin Rowan of Phoenix Comic Fest. Turned into more of a press-only mini-panel, but still some good stuff for his fans. I had to play with the audio because the room … Continue reading Video from Phoenix Comic Fest 2018 – Manu Bennett

DC Cinema, The Future, and The Batfleck

Well, I haven't read any of the reports coming out of SDCC, but boy, howdy, who needs to? There's enough headlines and exposition from media to get down to brass tacks. So here's my 2 cents. DC, on the heels of it undeniably most successful entry, Wonder Woman, in it nascent interconnected cinematic universe, is … Continue reading DC Cinema, The Future, and The Batfleck

From a fan, and a father…

I’m not sure what to call this… It’s not an apology. It’s not a celebration. It’s not a mea culpa. So what is it? Let’s back up a minute. Yesterday, the news broke (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/zack-snyder-steps-down-justice-league-deal-family-tragedy-1006455) the writer and director of the upcoming Justice League movie, Zack Snyder, was stepping aside for personal reasons and that Joss … Continue reading From a fan, and a father…

Follow-Up on NBC’s “Powerless”

I have been making a concerted effort to catch up on all of the multitudinous television that I am woefully behind on watching. While it may take me awhile, I am happy to say that I have at least made myself current on The Walking Dead (Ho-LEE shit) and now NBC's not-superhero superhero show, Powerless. … Continue reading Follow-Up on NBC’s “Powerless”

Vindicated (With a Caveat)

In one (very early, very rough) episode of the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast, we lamented that DC and Warner Brothers hadn’t had enough faith in its already well-established and well-loved television universe when it trying to kick-start its cinematic Extended Universe. Having already established Green Arrow (Arrow), the Flash (The Flash), and countless other heroes … Continue reading Vindicated (With a Caveat)

“ARQ” – Movie Review

Written and Directed by: Tony Elliott Cast: Robbie Amell, Rachael Taylor, Shaun Benson, Gray Powell, Jacob Neayem, … Continue reading “ARQ” – Movie Review

The Superman Conundrum

I’ve been thinking about this for some time, and finally just decided to blurb it all out here to try to make sense of it. DC has now released THREE cinematic versions of Superman/Kal-El/The Man of Steel in the last 10 years. One of those versions, Superman Returns, had Brandon Routh in the lead, while … Continue reading The Superman Conundrum

“Legends of Tomorrow” Season 1

I just finished watching season 1 of Legends of Tomorrow. Only 627 more TV shows to catch up on. Anyway, I wanted to put down some thoughts about how I felt about the show and what it's doing. First, there is what the cast of Star Trek used to call "spaceship acting." Hokey, but effective, … Continue reading “Legends of Tomorrow” Season 1

“Into the Wild” – Making the Movie Review Sausage

If the title of this post sounds a little strange, that's because what you're about to experience is a bit strange. We've all read or watched or listened to people reviewing movies; they're always (well, often, anyway) professionally done, well-considered, logically argued, and presented to you for your consumption and consideration. Well, do you suppose that … Continue reading “Into the Wild” – Making the Movie Review Sausage
