Roberto Orci No Longer Involved With ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Franchise
eelyajekiM   |  

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Header Image

Sony’s decision to reboot the Spider-Man franchise may have come too soon and has painted them into a tiny corner with their planned universe, since the rebooted franchise has struggled to please critics, and has not fared well at the box office, with each film earning less than its successor. The news that the studio would reschedule The Amazing Spider-Man 3‘s 2016 release to a rumored 2017 release did not bode well for the franchise, and now things are about to get much worse.

Roberto Orci, who was hired to write the script for the second sequel, plus the script for the Venom spinoff, will no longer be involved with developing The Amazing Spider-Man cinematic universe. Losing a writer at this critical juncture is one thing, but Orci says that he has no idea what the studio’s plans are for the franchise.

Hit the jump for more.

Tommy Ramone, Last Original Surviving Member Of The Ramones, Dies At 62
Stoogeypedia   |  

Tommy Ramone

Tommy Ramone, whose simple but jackhammer driving backbeat propelled the legendary punk ensemble The Ramones to soaring heights and becoming one of the most influential punk bands of all time, died on Friday in Queens, NY, according to Variety. He was 62.

Born in Budapest, Hungary, and raised in Forest Hills in Queens, NY, Tommy Ramone, whose real name was Erdelyi Tamas, was the last surviving original member of the group, which included singer Joey Ramone, bassist Dee Dee Ramone, and guitarist Johnny Ramone. Erdelyi became a member of the band by accidental proxy back in 1974, the year they formed, and all the musicians opted to take on the surname “Ramone” as stage names. Originally, lead singer and driving force Joey Ramone was relegated to the drum throne, but ultimately couldn’t keep time with the band’s three-chord, yet ultra tempo songs. Erdelyi, who was at first going to be the band’s manager, soon took over drum duties and wound up drumming and co-producing the band’s first three albums, which spawned a slew of memorable tracks, which to this day are now punk folklore: “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend,” (which Erdelyi wrote), “Pinhead,’” “Give Me Shock Treatment,” “Beat on the Brat,” and the band’s signature song, which also showcases in a way their instantly recognizable signature sound, and which was also penned mostly by Erdelyi, “Blitzkrieg Bop.”

Behold! The Monolith Overcome Tragedy, Return To The Stage With New Lineup
Ides Bergen   |  

behold_the_monolith

The Spring of 2013 was shaping up very nicely for L.A. stoner/doom rock outfit Behold! The Monolith. The band had just released its second full-length album, Defender, Redeemist, which was recorded with legendary producer Billy Anderson at the helm. The record was gathering steam and the band was set to embark on a nationwide tour. Then on June 21, two weeks before the tour was to commence, the unthinkable happened: lead singer and bassist Kevin McDade was killed in an automobile accident at the all too young age of 29.

Devastated by the loss of the man who they considered as much a brother as a bandmate, remaining members Chase Manhattan (drums) and Matt Price (guitar) could not initially even conceive of continuing on without their beloved frontman. It was only after receiving the blessings and encouragement of the McDade family that they could begin to pick up the pieces.

Bassist Jean-Yves “Blacky” Thériault has left the band Voivod for “personal reasons,” according to an official post today on the band’s Facebook page.

The announcement states that the 51-year-old bassist will no longer be performing live with the Canadian thrash metal outfit he co-founded back in 1982 and that he has left the band entirely. Blacky first quit Voivod after the release of their 1991 album Angel Rat, but returned to the fold in 2008 and was on their latest effort, 2013′s Target Earth.

Black Metal Friday: ‘Black Metal Satanica’ Full Documentary
Ides Bergen   |  

black-metal-iconic

I am in the process of transitioning all of the columns from my personal blog over to Geeks Of Doom. I already started with Thrashback Thursday, so now it’s time for Black Metal Friday. For this column, I usually spotlight a band video or, more often, an audio link, since many black metal artists shy away from making videos.

For my first installment on GoD, I have decided to share with you all a fantastic and riveting documentary on Scandinavian black metal. Black Metal Satanica is a very thorough examination of the genre. For anyone interested in knowing more about the subject, this is an excellent place to start! Watch the full documentary here below.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Movie Review by Adam Frazier

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Director: Matt Reeves
Screenwriters: Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver
Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Judy Greer, Kodi Smit-McPhee
20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 130 Minutes
Release Date: July 11, 2014

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is to Rise of the Planet of the Apes what The Empire Strikes Back is to Star Wars. An incredible, awe-inspiring epic; a monumental achievement in genre filmmaking and one of the year’s very best films.

Directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In), the film begins with a montage of news reports showing the collapse of human civilization in the wake of the ALZ-113 virus. Ten years after the “Simian Flu” epidemic, Caesar (Andy Serkis) governs a growing nation of genetically enhanced apes in the Muir Woods. With his wife Cornelia (Judy Greer) and son River (Nick Thurston), Caesar has established a thriving community for his species – one free of human interference.
