TV Review: Archer 4.13: Sea Tunt: Part 2
Goodman   |  

Archer - Season 4 Finale Review

Archer
Season 4, Episode 13 – “Sea Tunt: Part 2”
Directed by Bryan Fordney
Written by Adam Reed & Rick Cleveland
Starring: H. Jon Benjamin, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Chris Parnell, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal, and Jon Hamm.
FX
Air date: April 11, 2013

What always works so well for me in a comedy like Archer is how well developed each and all of the characters are. Guest stars or series regulars, Adam Reed and company nail the interactions between all involved. “Sea Tunt: Part 2” fully capitalizes on some of the exact situations you’d expect to happen when Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) and the rest of the ISIS field agents go to an underwater base. But there are still just enough swerves and twists and turns to make the episode enjoyable and downright hilarious.

‘Insidious’ & ‘The Conjuring’ Director James Wan Set For ‘Fast and Furious 7′
The Movie God   |  

James Wan Image

We found out earlier this month that Justin Lin would not be returning to direct another movie in the Fast and Furious franchise after running things for the last four installments, including the upcoming Fast & Furious 6.

Now comes word that James Wan has been chosen to step in for the departing Lin and take the helm for Fast and Furious 7. The choice is an interesting one, to say the least, as Wan is known primarily for his work in the horror genre. His credits include the original Saw, the surprise hit Insidious (as well as its upcoming sequel), and this summer’s The Conjuring.

Former ‘Walking Dead’ Showrunner Glen Mazzara To Write Prequel To ‘The Shining’
The Movie God   |  

The Overlook Hotel Image

We’ve heard about the sequel to Stephen King’s horror masterpiece The Shining, which is titled Doctor Sleep and follows young Danny Torrance as an adult using his abilities to help the terminally ill pass on painlessly, and that the book is set to hit store shelves on September 24, 2013.

But what you might now be aware of is that there’s also a prequel in the works, this one being of the cinematic variety. The prequel is titled The Overlook Hotel, and is of course set before director Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of King’s book. Nothing else is known about what story the prequel will tell.

What is known, however, is who will pen the screenplay. It’s being reported that Glen Mazzara, the man who replaced Frank Darabont as showrunner of AMC’s The Walking Dead (only to later be fired himself) will write the movie’s script.

‘The Hangover Part III’ Trailer: Todd Phillips Wants You To Experience A Different Kind Of Hangover

The Hangover Part III Header

After holding off on months and months of promotions for The Hangover Part III, the WB marketing team has released its second trailer for the film. While we’ve been waiting to hear how this film is unlike the first two, the first trailer didn’t seem to clarify how it would separate itself from its predecessors. So this new trailer gives us a few hints as to how it will do just that.

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis reprise their respective Wolfpack roles, so check out the latest trailer for the film to find out how this Hangover film is different from the rest.

Disney In Depth: Celebrating Roger Ebert and The Disney Films He Reviewed
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

Roger Ebert will forever be remembered as an emblem of film criticism, a man whose appreciation and critical analysis of the medium defined his life. He wrote many books that compiled thousands of movie reviews, and opened the eyes of millions of Americans in looking at more than just the face value of a film. In 1987 Ebert and fellow critic Gene Siskel’s PBS series caught the eye of Buena Vista Entertainment, Disney’s formerly-named television division, when they syndicated the show to mass audiences.

Ebert’s relationship with Disney would continue for two decades as co-host of the series, which went through many names including Siskel and Ebert and the Movies and later Ebert & Roeper. Though having a show essentially owned by Disney could have clouded many a critic’s judgment, Ebert was never one to shy away from the truth. He loved some movies. He hated others. But no matter the review, Ebert always shared an informed, well-reasoned opinion that viewers could relate to, as if he was just another friend sharing his thoughts.

Comic Review: Harbinger Wars #1
PS Hayes   |  

Harbinger Wars #1Harbinger Wars #1
Written by Joshua Dysart
Story by Joshua Dysart & Duane Swierczynski
Art by Clayton Henry, Clayton Crain and Mico Suayan
Color art by Brian Reber
Letters by Dave Lanphear
Covers by Lewis LaRosa, Clayton Henry, Clayton Crain, and Patrick Zircher
Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: April 3, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Harbinger Wars #1 is the first effort in a line wide crossover from the newly returned Valiant Entertainment. Now, I haven’t been keeping up like I should have or wanted to with the rest of the Valiant line, but thankfully the whole team has done a great job not to let me get lost and make it an enjoyable read.

Joshua Dysart, the writer of this series, does a nice job in the first few pages in bringing you up to speed on who’s who and what’s what in the Valiant Universe. It’s never confusing or convoluted, and flows naturally with the kind of story telling that he’s using in this issue. That said, I’m not a huge fan of first issues of big crossover story lines because the author normally DOES spend a number of pages catching the audience up with what has come before. Again, that being said, this one is quick and painless and then hits the ground running. This issue certainly gets the ball rolling bringing several of the Valiant Universe characters together in what seems is a confrontation that’s been brewing for awhile. Very cool, nicely written issue.

Twisted Tails Film Festival Now Accepting Submissions; All Proceeds Go To No-Kill Animal Shelter
FamousMonster   |  

Twisted Tails Film Festival Logo

Founded by Twisted Central’s Tammy Dupal, The Twisted Tails Film Festival began in 2011 as a fundraising event for homeless animals with a screening of All American Zombie Drugs. Over the course of that year, Twisted Tails gained the attention of independent filmmakers and horror lovers alike.

In 2012, Dupal’s event screened the award-winning horror film, Brutal, and included celebrity guests A. Michael Baldwin, Alan Howarth, Camille Keaton, Bill Oberst Jr., and Cleve Hall.

For this year’s event, Dupal and her team have decided to switch things up and create a full-fledged film festival, with 100% of the proceeds going to Paws in the City, a no-kill animal shelter in Philadelphia, PA.

Comic Review: Green Hornet: Legacy #34
PS Hayes   |  

Green Hornet:Legacy #34Green Hornet: Legacy #34
Written by Jai Nitz
Art by Jethro Morales
Colors by Alexandre Starling
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Cover by Stephen Sadowski
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 10, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Green Hornet: Legacy #34 is the first issue of the title previously known as Green Hornet. And I have to say, adding the word “legacy” to the title was a great move by Dynamite. First, it distinguishes itself from the Green Hornet title by Mark Waid. Secondly, it deserves the title, as this is the story of the modern day Britt Reid carrying on the legacy that was started almost a hundred years ago.

Jai Nitz takes this book in a new direction, focusing on the modern day Britt Reid and his Kato and their quest to bring order back to Central City. When we join this issue, Britt has been in a coma for the last several week and while he has, Clutch has become the Green Hornet in his absence, although a VERY different kind of Green Hornet than Britt was. This is just a really fun super hero book, with all the trimmings. It’s got costumed bad guys, a city going down in flames, and a terrific last page cliffhanger.
