News Post: Double-Booked

Tycho: I think that, rather than being arch about the whole thing, the right call is to laud Gabriel’s Krynn Excursion.  First of all, like Hamburger Helper, it occupies a valuable midpoint between homemade and store-bought.  You can partake in the camaraderie and industry of a working kitchen with greater frequency because portions of the toil have been commodified.  I don’t know every aspect of his life but I know that Gabriel is a grown-ass man who has to do a bunch of time consuming shit ...

‘Captain Marvel’ TV Spot: Carol Danvers Searches for the Key to Her Past

Carol Danvers is looking to unlock the answers to her past, but it may be a long journey until she finds the key. In the latest Captain Marvel TV spot, the titular cosmic superhero searches for meaning behind her strange memories of Earth while promising to “end” the war between the Kree and the Skrulls. It’s a narrative we’ve seen before in the last few Captain Marvel trailers, but the latest TV spot gives us a glimpse of some new footage of the first female-led Marvel superhero movie. Cap...

Takane & Hana Volume 6

I read Takane & Hana volume 6 about a month late. It came out at the perfect time, at the beginning of December, for its content, which starts with a Christmas chapter and continues to New Year’s Eve. I gave up reading the series because we were supposed to believe the businessman and the teenager were in love with each other despite treating each other miserably. I didn’t find it believable or funny or entertaining, just mean. However, the situation [...]

Review: Shirkers

— by BEV QUESTAD — “Shirkers” made it to the top five films nominated for Best Documentary by the Online Film Critic’s Society (OFCS). It’s about a film that never got made. It is a silly, waste-of-time movie that tells you absolutely nothing. The narrator says the word shirker means someone who is running away, […]

Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits Volume 1

After reading Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits volume 1, I made the following list of cliched elements it has that I’d seen before: A nondescript but kind-hearted girl Takes pity on a mysterious handsome guy Who kidnaps her to a demon realm where he’s the leader And demands she marry him Because her grandfather owes him a debt And she was orphaned when grandfather died a month ago And she has the ability to see supernatural creatures I only [...]

‘Black Mirror’ Producers Explain ‘Bandersnatch’ Alternate Endings, and Why Season 5 Was Delayed

Unlike traditional movies, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch makes the viewer an active participant in the story, forced to decide the fate of the main character. As a result, there are a slew of alternate conclusions, depending on which decision you make. In a new interview, Black Mirror producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones break down some of the Bandersnatch alternate endings, and confirm that the movie was so complicated that it delayed the release of Black Mirrror season 5. Spoilers follow....

Red Heat

It’s not one of Schwarzenegger’s better films, but it’s not bad either, and is decently directed by Walter Hill. It does the stereotypical “buddy cop” film things, partners at odd and all that, but Arnie does have some fun reactions as the Russian cop, and the cast is not bad either (hey, it’s got Gina Gershon). I don’t regret re-watching it.

Willow

I can always tell that I used to love and re-watch these movies a lot, even though I haven’t watched them since back in the day, if I’m constantly remembering lines and specific sequences from the film. Such is the case for Willow — even though it was a bit of a bomb back then, I always really liked it. At the same time, it’s not like we got a lot of good fantasy films at the time. I still think it’s too bad we didn’t get more movies set in this world, which I’m sure was Lucas’s intention. I’d ...

Appointment with Death

I was a big fan of Peter Ustinov’s Poirot, and I’m a bit surprised that I didn’t really remember much about this movie — I’m assuming I saw it though. It’s about what you’d expect from these Agatha Christie adaptations, which is to say that they’re not terrific, but are still quite enjoyable to watch. The setting here is nice (Palestine), and it’s got quite the cast (including Carrie Fisher), but the one thing that marred the film for me is the awful soundtrack — it’s unfortunately very 80s, wh...

School Daze

I had very little memory of what happens in this movie, and so was quite looking forward to re-visiting it. It’s certainly an odd film, and all over the place, but there’s definitely some interesting sequences to take in, especially the musical numbers (I really like the frat face-offs with no music). And it’s pretty fun seeing a very young Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad‘s Gustavo Fring),

The Muppets Promise a “Big Surprise” in 2019, But What Could It Be?

Right now, Disney is sitting on the rights to some of the most famous puppets in history: Jim Henson’s The Muppets. However, they haven’t been able to figure out what to do with them for years now (even Frank Oz agrees with that), and it feels like they’re just collecting dust. But that might be changing in 2019 according to a tease from Kermit the Frog himself. Could there be a Muppets 2019 project in the works? Kermit the Frog appeared on KCAL’s morning news in Los Angeles back on December ...

Twins

Between this and Red Heat, this is definitely the better Schwarzenegger film of 1988. Silly and goofy, him and Devito do have some great chemistry on-screen, and the ridiculous premise ends up working lovingly. Sure, I wouldn’t describe it as being a great comedy, but it’s a movie you watch with a big ol’ smile on your face.

Review: BlacKkKlansman

— by BEV QUESTAD — The greatest thing about “BlacKkKlansman” is Spike Lee’s totally manifested, constructive genius. Based on the true story of Ron Stallworth’s infiltration into the KKK in 1978-79, his film shows the fluidity, through time, of racist hegemony in the US. But America, we are on a path to getting better. That’s […]

After Hours Volume 3

The Viz yuri manga series After Hours concludes here as it started — with an emphasis on feeling instead of plot, and prioritizing club life over love. I find in general that yuri series are more elliptical than others. I suspect those looking for that kind of content (or to see characters finding themselves and their feelings) like the uncertainty and ability to read between the lines, while I find it annoying. My trying to puzzle out what was going [...]

Maybe This Is The Year

Souljaboy Could Not Crank That SouljaGame Console

After “boldly proclaiming” that the SouljaGame and SouljaBoy gaming consoles are legitimate legal products, rapper Souljaboy was forced to delete his online shop and anything related to his knockoff product. It seems that Nintendo and other IP holders have indeed taken action against the celebrity as he briefly explained on Twitter: The downfall of his […]
