Written by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent, Renee Castle
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, July 26th, 2017, 10pm

Blood Drive on Syfy is television’s weekly foray into grindhouse madness. Last week there were Mad Max-style Amazon biker babes who used men as milk machines, you know the usual. Things came crashing down though for Grace (Christina Ochoa) whose entire motivation for joining the Drive was to rescue and help her sister Karma (Alex McGregor), found out Karma died initiating a rebellion that created the female-dominated society in the desert. The range of of emotions shown by Ochoa was fascinating. Usually such a sarcastic stone-cold badass, the episode ended with her heartbroken to silence as Arthur (Alan Ritchson), ever the steadfast and stoic good guy, tried desperately to reassure her things would get better. Getting better, is staying alive in the Blood Drive and defeating Heart Enterprises.

Check out my review of Blood Drive Episode 1.7 “The Gentleman’s Agreement”:

Movie Review: Atomic Blonde
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Atomic Blonde review header

Atomic Blonde
Director: David Leitch
Screenwriter: Kurt Johnstad
Cast: Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella, Toby Jones
Distributor: Focus Features
Rated R | 115 Minutes
Release Date: July 28, 2017

Usually, when “atomic” is used as an adjective it means something that is propelled by atomic energy. Or if you prefer to use one of Urban Dictionary’s definitions, it’s a “devastating experience of epic proportions from which nothing is salvageable.” So when you have John Wick co-director David Leitch direct Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde, an adaptation of the famed The Coldest City graphic novel, you’d expect something to leave an impact that is befitting its title. But Atomic Blonde is anything but atomic, at least from a narrative standpoint. It’s thin, has very few characters to care about, and casually shoehorns in 80s British pop songs. But if you are looking for a film with some great action and excellent framing, plus the occasional consumption of vodka, then Atomic Blonde is your kind of film.

‘It’ Trailer: This Cursed Town Has Got A Serious Clown Problem

Pennywise It Trailer

Clowns are pretty much at the top of the list of things to be afraid of. Though they can bring laughter with slapstick comedy, but one can’t get over the fact that there is something truly terrifying about them as well. Which is why coulrophobia — the fear of clowns — has been popularized in pop culture. And we owe a great deal of thanks to Pennywise from Stephen King‘s novel It for manifesting those fears of clowns.

A brand new adaptation of It, from Mama director Andy Muschietti, is just a few more months away, and now WB has released a new trailer that brings back all those fears we thought we suppressed. Check it out here below.

Netflix Logo

While finding out what’s new to Netflix streaming each month is always exciting, those titles will be available for a while. There’s no rush to watch them immediately. You can chill whenever you choose.

On the other end is the far less exciting list of what’s leaving Netflix soon. A list that adds a ticking clock to a bunch of titles you may have been planning on watching. Below you’ll find the Leaving Netflix list for August 2017, so you can binge anything you’ve been meaning to watch before it disappears.

Cover by Derek Charm, Nelson Daniel, Nick Roche & Nelson Daniel
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 19, 2017

I certainly hope you took my advice last month and read the first issue of this series because Clue #2 is where the action is and I would hate to think you were not up to speed with the goings on after the death of A. Boddy. With so many suspects, though, it will be difficult for the two detectives on site to catch the villain. And now, one more person is found murdered!

Lupita Nyong’o Dressed In Cosplay At SDCC, and No One Seemed To Notice
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Lupita Nyong'o

Anyone who is anyone would know that an actor would probably have a hard time walking amongst the crowd at the San Diego Comic-Con. So most of the stars blend in using some ingenious cosplay. We’ve seen Maisie Williams dress as Spider-Man. John Boyega simply put a Stormtrooper helmet on. And Bryan Cranston dressed as his own Breaking Bad character by putting a Walter White mask on. So if you are at Comic-Con and see someone wearing a mask, you might never know who is behind it.

Case in point, Lupita Nyong’o. The Academy Award-winning actress who played Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and plays Nakia, a member of T’Challa’s personal guard, in Marvel’s Black Panther, took to Comic-Con this past weekend dressed as the pink Power Ranger while wearing a jabberwocky mask with sunglasses, and no one seemed to notice. But she did take a couple of videos to prove that it was her. Check it out here below.

‘Atomic Blonde’ Interview: Director David Leitch On Use Of 80s Music, Stunts, ‘Deadpool 2’
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron

Creating killer soundtracks for a film appears to be in very high demand nowadays. From Guardians of the Galaxy to Baby Driver, the way that pop culture music is being used makes it feel as though they are a character in the film itself. And that couldn’t be truer for the upcoming action film Atomic Blonde.

Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, Atomic Blonde takes place just before the fall of the Berlin Wall, with Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) assigned to investigate the murder of a fellow MI6 agent, who was in possession of a top secret list, which in the wrong hands could expose every spy and operative. But as she searches for this elusive list, those working closest to her steer her in the wrong direction, in more ways than one. Without anyone to trust but herself, Lorraine finds out that getting that list and out of Berlin, alive, won’t be easy.

So just imagine the Cold War canvas of bright 80s neon lights with contemporary covers of 80s British pop songs and action sequences that could only come from the mind of John Wick co-director David Leitch. We had a chance to talk to the director about his approach to the film, what he pitched to the producers, his use of music, that incredible one-shot action scene, and Deadpool 2. Check out our full interview with him here below.
