Come And See review

Come and See
Directed by Elem Klimov
Starring: Aleksey Kravchenko, Olga Mironova, Liubomiras Laucevicius, and Juri Lumiste
U.S. Theatrical Release Date: February 6, 1985
Available on FilmStruck

Often my daughter comes running to me in a state of pure excitement prompting me to either “come and see this” or “come and see that.” She’s undoubtedly enthralled by whatever it is that seems to have captivated her for that specific second. She’s a child with boundless wonder, finding everything very fascinating.

A similar childlike wonder is on display in the 1985 Russian film Come and See, which documents the ruthlessness of the Nazi forces as they tear their way through Belarus villages in 1943. Aptly titled, writer and director Elem Klimov’s film is told totally from the perspective of a child. It just so happens the child, Florya (Aleksey Kravchenko), roughly 12 or 13 years old, is completely enraptured by war and the valor and courage that he believes comes with it. He can’t wait to tell his mom to “come and see what I’ll be doing.”

Heroes Villains Fan Fest 2018: Firestorm panel

The Heroes and Villains Fan Fest emanated from the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center in Edison, NJ on September 8th and 9th, where the biggest stars from comics television and film were there and fans were able to pose for photos with them, get autographs, and take part in Q&A panel discussions. The fest heavily featured stars from DC’s TV Universe or “Arrow-verse” on The CW. Stars from Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and more were there as well as stars from Fox’s Gotham.

The opening panel of the weekend was the Firestorm panel featuring the trio of actors who’ve portrayed the character: Victor Garber, Robbie Amell, and Franz Drameh. The stars talked about their superhero favorites, and took an array of questions from the eager crowd. And moderating the panel was my wife Athena (Olympus Athens) and myself Dan (Dr. Zaius) of Geeks Of Doom.

Birds of Prey

Warner Bros. has made some excellent progress when it comes to adding diversity in their DC films. They were among the first to have a solo female superhero film to be directed by a female director. And now they’ve taken another huge step with Birds Of Prey, an all-female DC superhero ensemble. Directed by Cathy Yan, the film will see Margot Robbie reprising her DCEU role as Harley Quinn, who will be joined by DC characters Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain, and Renee Montoya in a fight to defend Gotham City against one of Batman’s most notable villains, Black Mask.

While Robbie is the only confirmed actress to board the film, a new report says Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Justina Machado,, and more are being considered for various roles. More on the story here below.

Ash vs Evil Dead Dana Delorenzo Kelly

This weekend, the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ, hosted the New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival. Fans packed in to meet and greet their favorite celebrities, take photos, shop the vendor tables, and indulge in Q&A panels. The panel area opened up Friday night with a dynamic duo from Ash vs Evil Dead as stars Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly Maxwell) and Ted Raimi (Chet/Henrietta) took to the stage… or should I say took over the stage. Despite the series being cancelled by the STARZ network earlier this year, DeLorenzo had one of the most consistently packed lines at NJ Horror Con and there were plenty of Ash cosplayers. They gave the fans a hell of a fun time during their panel’s Q&A.

Transformers Bumblebee

One of the biggest criticisms of the Transformers film franchise is that it looked nothing like the Transformers fans knew and loved. However, Bumblebee, the first Transformers film spinoff, represents something new and exciting. The teaser trailer gave us a brief look at the fan favorite Autobot’s first mission on Earth, as a VW Bug.

Now Paramount has released a brand new trailer for the film, and it’s filled with even more 80’s references and old school Transformers than you can roll out at. Check it out here below.

Marvel X-Men and Avengers crossover

Marvel Comics may share one universe, but when it comes to films, that’s a different story.

Sony has their Spider-Man-Less universe, Disney has the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and FOX has X-Men and Fantastic Four. But since Disney acquired Fox earlier this year, for $71 billion, many are hoping things are going to change. And it looks like that may be happening. Just how soon remains to be a question.

Disney CEO Bob Iger recently spoke about what the merger could do for their Marvel properties. But one thing is for sure, Iger believes that there should not be “two Marvels.” Check out the story here below.
