All American Men of War v2 #55 - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert All American Men of War v2 #55, 1955 - Under fire from the enemy, a GI has to speed up his reaction time in order for him and his unarmed buddy to survive. Joe Kubert's cover lacks some foreground detail, but his story art is expertly paced and sequenced. The underwater dive on page 10 and the encroaching enemy tank on page 12 are scenes that are artistically on target. This story [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Finally, Some Good News. A ‘Borat’ Sequel Is On The Way

Getty Images Very nice For the past few months there have been faint whispers on the wind that comedian and certified master of disguise Sacha Baron Cohen’s been cooking up something new. Over the summer he was spotted numerous times around Southern California dressed as Borat, one of his most famous characters who hasn’t been seen since 2006. As it turns out, the rumors are true, we’re getting a Borat sequel. News which, frankly, is pretty shocking, simply because anytime something act...

Chinese Ghost Stories

The Six Weeks of Halloween marches on with a pair of Chinese Ghost stories. Literally! The title is A Chinese Ghost Story (and we watched the sequel too). While not notably “scary”, per say, these movies do feature lots of spooky imagery, plenty of unexpected, bonkers elements, and a not-exactly-seamless blend of horror, romance, fantasy, martial arts, comedy, and even musical numbers. We’ve tackled similar fare before in the 6WH, and these types of movies represent an interesting change of pace...

Three Cases of Murder! (1955)

32 Days of Halloween XIIIMovie Night #1 An omnibus film of horror from across the pond is the first bit in our film festival. The biggest name involved is Orson Welles, but don’t tell that to some of the cinema chains in the UK. According to Wikipedia, which is always right, a couple of them found the film to be mediocre, and that Welles wasn’t a big enough draw to make up for it. Ouch. Pretty sure it is out of print stateside. So enjoy it while we have it.

‘His House’ Trailer: A Refugee Couple Faces Unspeakable Evil in Their New Home

A refugee story turns into a full-blown nightmare in His House, a new Netflix horror film from director Remi Weekes. The story follows a young refugee couple from South Sudan who moves to a small English town and begins to experience some sort of “unspeakable evil.” It’s a tad vague, all in the name of keeping the shocks and jolts fresh, but the His House trailer below is plenty effective as-is. His House Trailer His House premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and a...

‘Greenland’ Starring Gerard Butler Skipping Theaters and Headed to VOD in October

Greenland, a new Gerard Butler movie about a family trying to survive a cataclysmic natural disaster, is headed to where it belongs: VOD. While STX was hoping to release this baby theatrically, and even moved the theatrical date around a bit, let’s be honest – a disaster flick with Gerard Butler seems like the perfect VOD fodder – and I don’t mean that in a negative way. Greenland While there has yet to be an official announcement from STX Films, a list of new titles coming to Amazon in...

‘Bill and Ted Face the Music’ Has Made 10 Times More on PVOD Than in Theaters

It’s been something of a rarity to get a clear look at how certain movies have performed financially during the COVID era than it was in the Before Times. However, a picture is beginning to emerge around MGM and Orion’s Bill and Ted Face the Music which indicates that dropping the film on PVOD was a smart play by the studio. A new report says that Dean Parisot‘s comedy sequel has made just about ten times more on PVOD than it has in theaters so far. Deadline reports that the movie, which was ...
