X-men #55 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith X-men v1 #55, 1969 - Barry Smith's third cover is marginally better than the others in the series. His inexperience shows in the figure drawings and attempts at foreshortening. The layout, centered around a main figure, is commonly used. Still, combined with the intense color palette and textural background, Smith's artwork is eye-catching.

Twilight Zone #9 - mis-attributed Alex Toth art

Twilight Zone #9 Twilight Zone v1 #9, 1964 - No Alex Toth art, despite what some comic book price guides say. There are resemblances, but closer inspection reveals another artist's hand (perhaps Fred Fredericks?). This was not uncommon given that Toth's style was copied throughout the 50s and 60s. The artist's work does appear in Twlight Zone #3 and #4. Other artists in this Gold Key silver [Author: Unknown]

‘Save Yourselves!’ TV Show in the Works at Universal, Based on Last Year’s Sci-Fi Comedy

Save Yourselves!, a science fiction comedy that debuted at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, had a fun premise: a couple decides to go on a vacation to an isolated cabin and leave their phones off the whole time…but wouldn’t you know it, that’s the exact time that an alien invasion happens nearby. Now Universal Television and Keshet Studios are taking that premise to the small screen with a Save Yourselves TV show. Deadline reports that Universal TV is extending its deal with Keshet TV, th...

John Carpenter Says ‘Halloween Kills’ is Brilliant, and He Knows a Thing or Two About These Movies

John Carpenter is a legend, and every time he gives a new interview, he drops enjoyable little quotes that we can all obsess over. Just recently he gave a great interview with The Daily Beast in which he called horrible former President Ronald Reagan an “old piece of shit,” and we all had a good laugh. Now, as Carpenter’s interviews continue for his latest album – Lost Themes III: Life After Death – we have another quote we’re going to zero in on. This quote has to do with Halloween Kills, the ...

Sundance 2021: Karen Cinorre's 'Mayday' Film Fights the Patriarchy

Mayday, mayday! It's time to fight the patriarchy! One of my favorite premieres from the 2021 Sundance Film Festival is this gritty war film Mayday, written & directed by filmmaker Karen Cinorre making her feature directorial debut. There are many, many films being made these days about fighting the patriarchy and the power of modern feminism. There are also plenty of films telling stories about women fighting back against abusive men and pushing back against oppressive societies. But few film...

Talking about car violence on XRAY in the Morning

Listen to the interview below. This morning I was on the XRAY in the Morning radio show and had a nice conversation with host DJ Ambush. He asked how I’m making sense of the intentional vehicular assault in Portland on January 25th and what we should do in response. I expected it would be a short exchange, but was pleasantly surprised that it went longer. DJ Ambush asked thoughtful questions and wanted to delve into the issue. We talked for over 20 minutes. There is a short section in the middl...

‘Amend’ Trailer: Will Smith Hosts Netflix Documentary Series About What It Means to be an American Citizen

In 2016, Netflix released Ava DuVernay’s 13th, a documentary about slavery and the prison system in America seen through the prism of the 13th Amendment of the Constitution. Five years later, there seems to be a Constitutional Cinematic Universe slowly forming at the streaming service.

‘Southland Tales’ Director Richard Kelly Revisits His Infamous Cult Curiosity [Interview]

Southland Tales debuted almost 15 years ago at the Cannes Film festival. All of these years later, love it or hate it, the Richard Kelly film remains something movie fans keep talking about. The conversation around the ambitious science fiction film continues as Arrow Films has released a limited edition Blu-Ray, including the infamous “Cannes cut,” which runs longer than the theatrical version. This version remains unfinished, without all the effects work complete, but nonetheless, Kelly’s pop...

CS Soapbox: Do We Really Want Chris Evans Back As Captain America?

CS Soapbox: Do we really want Chris Evans back as Captain America? It was a dance Steve Rogers has been anticipating for over 80 years—ever since he rain-checked a date with Peggy Carter and she told him, “Don’t you dare be late.” For us, seeing him try some of that life Tony told him to get was a beautiful bookend, contrasting with the satisfying character arc of a fallen Avenger. Irrespective of time travel logic, plot holes, and kissed nieces,  Avengers: Endgame  wrapped things up quite...

‘The Lord of the Rings’ Trilogy Will Play in IMAX This Month, But You Probably Shouldn’t Risk Going Back to the Movies Just Yet

The Lord of the Rings trilogy never screened in IMAX – but that’s about to change. The three acclaimed entries in Peter Jackson‘s beloved Middle-earth saga will screen on IMAX screens in 4K for the first time ever this month, and if things were normal right now, that would be incredibly exciting news! But things aren’t normal right now. There’s still a very deadly pandemic, and it’s probably not the best idea to go to a movie theater right now. Just saying. Back in the summer of 2020, the AV...

‘Together Together’ Review: A Sweet, If Inconsequential, Comedy [Sundance 2021]

Together Together is a love story – kind of. This is not the typical romantic love story that Hollywood usually pumps out; it’s a story about platonic love. About finding a connection with another human being that isn’t based on seduction or romance. And that’s refreshing! More stories like this from the movies would be welcomed. Unfortunately, the film that’s built around that platonic love story is lacking, resulting in a film that’s sweet and kind but also kind of forgettable. Middle-aged...

Fun Kids Silly flips to non-stop sea shanties

Fun Kids Silly is getting even sillier this weekend and rebranding to play non-stop sea shanties. The change of format is in response to the growing popularity of the sea-faring songs on the video-sharing social network Tik Tok.

His song hit the top spot in the charts with a number 1 on the UK Big Top 40 and number 3 Official Charts. F...
