Movies of 2016 10 Cloverfield Lane cast

It’s that time once again folks, as we have officially come to the close of the summer movie season and get ready for Oscar season and the winter holiday films. I’ve been looking over my list of new movies I have seen this year — and yes this includes older movies as well, but also movies that I have seen for the first time – to pick my favorites so far. So the easiest step of my process for this post is to first go through and get rid of the older movies and then get into the nitty gritty of compiling my top ten movies of 2016…so far.

So here we go….

Interview: A. Lee Martinez, Author Of ‘The Last Adventure Of Constance Verity’
Waerloga69   |  @   |  

The Last Adventure Of Constance Verity header

I recently had the chance to connect with A. Lee Martinez to talk about his life as an author in general and his newest book in particular. I had previously read a few of his books as my buddy Craig is/was a huge fan and turned me onto his work. It was a year or so later when I got to meet Martinez in Dallas at a Waldenbooks convention and he was so utterly nice and down to earth that I never forgot that day. So, of course, I jumped at the chance to interview him, though to be fair I may have been a bit pushy during one of his Facebook Live Chats. But being the gracious individual he is, he answered all my questions and even expanded on them a bit. Keep on reading to see what all the fuss is about and learn a little more about his new book, The Last Adventure Of Constance Verity.

Black Metal Friday: Darkthrone “Tundra Leech”

Darkthrone Band Photo

You know it’s going to be a good week whenever there is a new Darkthrone track. When said track is a return to form that harkens back to the band’s ’90s heyday, you know it’s going to be a great week. And that is where today finds us. The Norwegian gods of black metal have gifted us with the first single from their upcoming sixteenth studio album Arctic Thunder, which will be released on October 14, 2016 via Peaceville Records. After nearly a dozen year diversion, Darktrhone have decided to cast off the black-n-roll and crust punk diversions and get back down to their black metal roots.

Top 5 Things You Should Know About ‘Ben-Hur’ Starring Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, Morgan Freeman
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Jack Huston in Ben-Hur

Yes. Ben-Hur is indeed another remake in the long line of remakes. The original 1959 film starring Charlton Heston ended up winning 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It may seem difficult to follow that up with a remake of the film, but Timur Bekmambetov‘s telling doesn’t seem to have any intentions of doing that. Instead, Keith Clarke and John Ridley‘s adaptation of the 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ by Lew Wallace draws inspiration from the previous two big-screen films that came before it, while also being sold as a faith-based film.

We were invited to sit down with a group of journalists to talk to Jack Huston, who plays the title character; Toby Kebbell, who plays Messala, Ben-Hur’s adoptive brother; and Morgan Freeman who plays Sheik Ilderim. The three talked about their experience on the set, the training they went through to prepare for the role, and the hesitations of remaking a classic. Check out the top five things you need to know about the film below.

Disney In Depth: Embracing More Marvel and Muppets In The Parks
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Play the music and light the lights. The emergence of more Marvel and Muppets in the Disney theme parks is enough to make the future look very bright! Disney must balance so many properties these days that there is only enough slots during the yearly theatrical schedule to place movies. A few are reserved for “Disney proper,” whereas others must account for Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar.

Likewise, many of the Disney theme parks’ newest offerings are not “originals,” but rather come from preexisting brands. Two Disney brands gaining more exposure in the parks come from arenas that have been relatively absent in Disney parks: Marvel and the Muppets.

Massive Metal Monday: W.A.S.P. “Sleeping In The Fire”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

W.A.S.P. Band Photo 1984

Los Angeles shock rockers W.A.S.P. burst onto the scene in 1984 with what remains to this day one of the greatest debut albums in metal history. The self titled disc was raw, powerful and visceral. This, combined with their legendary live shows, seemed to make the band an overnight sensation.

In reality, the foursome were long-time veterans of the L.A. metal scene. Leader Blackie Lawless had once been Johnny Thunders’ replacement in the New York Dolls and later been a member of legendary underground bands Sister (which also included future W.A.S.P. guitarist Randy Piper) and London (also featuring future Motley Crue leader Nikki Sixx). Guitarist Chris Holmes had grown up with the Van Halen brothers in Pasadena and had even loaned Eddie Van Halen many of the guitars with which he was photographed for many of the early VH promo photos.

Black Metal Friday Preview: Torrid Husk “Carminite”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Torrid Husk and End Swallow Matewan Split Cover

On September 23, 2016, Grimoire Records will release a full-length split album entitled Swallow Matewan that has been over two years in the making. The record features two bands from very disparate parts of the world that share a common vision of black metal and a deep admiration for each other’s vision.

Torrid Husk are long-time Grimoire artists that hail from West Virginia. Their sound is a dense and intricate form of black metal that pummels the listener with layered nuances that lend themselves to the discovery of something new with each listen. End come out of the Athens, Greece scene and practice a more ethereal style of atmospheric black metal. Despite the two band’s different approaches to the genre, Swallow Matewan manages to flow together as one cohesive and monumental work of art.

We here at Geek of Doom are proud to present for your listening pleasure, in conjunction with Grimoire Records and Dewar PR, an advanced preview of one of the Torrid Husk tracks from the Swallow Matewan split. This is “Carminite.”

Interview: Robert Redford On ‘Pete’s Dragon,’ His Legacy, and Future Of The Sundance Film Festival
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Pete's Dragon #3

Walt Disney Studios’ Pete’s Dragon is not like any of the reboots of their classic films. Unlike most reboots that add tweaks to make the film more contemporary while paying respect to the original source material. David Lowery‘s vision sees the tale about a boy and his pet as an old small town folk legend whose tale differs from each storyteller. The film features an all-star supporting cast starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, and Robert Redford.

We were fortunate to sit down with a group of our fellow journalists to talk to Redford about his role in the film, the legacy he is laying out, and the future of the Sundance Film Festival. Check out the full interview below.
