Game Review: The Bunker
The Movie God   |  @   |  

The Bunker

I’ve played a lot of video games in my day, but don’t recall many—if any at all—that included live-action gameplay. I’m sure there’s been a couple along the way, most likely in some arcade in the ’90s, but nothing I remember specifically. Recently I got to play the excellent Quantum Break, which included live-action episodes within the game but not live-action gameplay.

So when I first heard about co-developers Wales Interactive’s and Splendy Games’ The Bunker—a game that’s entirely live-action, and was filmed in an actual decommissioned nuclear bunker—earlier this month, my attention was surely obtained. The game releases this week, and I was able to give it a try. You can read my thoughts on it below!

The Red Turtle header image

A film that has been literally making waves in its film festival run is Studio Ghibli’s The Red Turtle. It won the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and won over audiences at TIFF, and soon will be making its way to the states where it will be shown at Fantastic Fest, where I’m sure it will be just as well-received.

But for a film that lacks dialogue makes up in everything else. That’s because British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit‘s film doesn’t have any dialogue, and explores the circle of life through the beauty of simplicity and animation. Check out the full trailer below.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Xbox Games With Gold

One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.

The four free games being offered to Xbox players for Games With Gold October 2016 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.

TV Review: Gotham 3.1 “Mad City: Better To Reign In Hell”
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  

Gotham 301-13

Season 3 Episode 1: “Mad City: Better To Reign in Hell”
Directed by Danny Cannon
Written by John Stephens
Created by Bruno Heller
Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards, Chris Chalk, Michael Chiklis
Air Date: Monday, September 19th, 2016, 8pm

Last season, Gotham was besieged with villainy – and most were super crazy. Arkham Asylum was the drain we circled, with the psychotic Doctor Strange (the incredible BD Wong) experimenting with life and monstrous death. Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) got so much closer to the truth, and a glimpse of his future in the batlike Azrael (James Frain), who started out as only a madman on the inside, set on destroying the Wayne family. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) was committed and freed, reunited with his dad at his mother’s grave (Tabitha killed mommy), but that happiness was fleeting. His stepfamily murdered his father, and Penguin returned in full force. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) completely split apart after killing his girlfriend and framing Gordon for murder. He was caught and thrown into Arkham just in time to join the crazy party. The showdown at the end resulted in all the monsters going free, including season 1 resurrected baddie, Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith).

Exclusive World Premiere Video: Dead Register “Grave”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Dead Register Band Photo

The Atlanta-based band known as Dead Register describe their sound as “genre-bending, monolithic, gothic-tinged, gloomy, melodic, doom-gaze.” If you’re having trouble getting your head around that, just picture Type O Negative covering a Pinkish Black song in the style of Bauhaus and that should put you on the right mental track.

Formed in 2013 by married couple M. Chvasta (vocals, bass, bass vi) and Avril Che (bass synth, textures, keys, and background vocal accompaniment), the band spent a year demoing material before recruiting drummer Chad Williams to round out their unique trio. Another year was then spent fleshing out the tunes, all the while writing a bunch more. Eventually in 2015, Dead Register picked six of their favorite compositions and entered the studio to record what would become their debut full-length album Fiber. The album was released back on May 6th of this year and has been gaining steam ever since.

Now Dead Register are gracing us here at Geeks of Doom with the exclusive first look at their creepy new video for the track “Grave.” The song may hold a special appeal to our readers, as it encompasses elements drawn from horror movies, video games, and (of course) heavy metal. Check it out below.

Spoilers for Mr. Robot below…

“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide…” — “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Queen

After last week’s penultimate episode of Season 2 of Mr. Robot, that song was all I could think in relation to creator Sam Esmail’s cyber drama. I feel just like Elliot (newly crowned Emmy winner for Best Actor, Rami Malek). I don’t know what to believe, I don’t know what is real anymore. Last week was a surreal nightmare. After spending the majority of the season thinking Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom) was dead from a gunshot wound he delivered personally, Wellick joins Elliot for a bizarre cab ride, leaving us desperately searching for clues as to who and what is real. Is Tyrell another manifestation of Elliot’s subconscious like the Mr. Robot himself (Christian Slater)? In the Season 2 finale, Episode 2.12 “eps2.9pyth0n-pt2.p7z,” all of fsociety’s paranoia, as well as the craziness caused by the 5/9 hack come home to roost.

Mute Concept Art

Long before Duncan Jones got the gig to direct the blockbuster adaptation of Warcraft, he was a small indie director with only a few features under his belt. In fact, Moon wasn’t even supposed to mark his debut as a director, that moment was reserved for his passion project, Mute.

Now that his obligations to Warcraft are behind him, the filmmaker can start focusing once again on bringing Mute to the big screen, and has announced that production on the film will commence next week. More on the story below.

‘Between Two Ferns’: Zach Galifianakis Grills Hillary Clinton In Hilarious Interview

Between Two Ferns Zach Galifianakis Hillary Clinton

No matter which side of the political spectrum you are on, it’s always nice to see the U.S. Presidential candidates take a break from all of the seriousness to appear on comedies. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have already been making their late-night talk-show appearances throughout the campaign, but the former stopped by for a visit on Zach GalifianakisBetween Two Ferns. This is a pretty significant moment (and by significant moment I mean that for Funny Or Die) as the very informal interview show is finally back after a long hiatus.

Those familiar with the show will recognize the brand of humor that BTF delivers as host Galifianakis is known to ask very awkward and out of date questions. And this interview with Clinton is no different from the rest. Check it out here below.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ Starts Filming This November; Jing Tian Joins The Cast
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Pacific Rim

Though Pacific Rim was a bit underwhelming in the U.S, where it grossed $101 million, but found huge overseas numbers, particularly in China, where it grossed $111 million. Those numbers were just enough to garner a sequel, Pacific Rim 2, that will be directed by Steven DeKnight. Currently, the film stars John Boyega and Scott Eastwood, and it’s still not clear if anyone from the first film will be returning. While Charlie Hunnam has said he will not be reprising his role in the sequel, Guillermo del Toro that most of the original cast would return.

With most the major pieces already in place, it was only a matter of time before Legendary would be announcing a start date for the production. Now the production company can say that Pacific Rim 2 will begin lensing this November, and Chinese actress Jing Tian will be joining the cast. More on the story below.
