Seeing Double: ‘Dante’s Peak’ vs ‘Volcano,’ 1997’s Dueling Disaster Movies

(Welcome to Seeing Double, a series where two strangely similar films released around the same time are put head-to-head. This time, we take a timely look at two movies that turn volcanic activity into action/adventure romps for the big screen.) Volcanic eruptions don’t typically get the kind of attention in the US that hurricanes, tornadoes, and sinkholes do as they’re understandably infrequent here in the states. We had Mount St. Helens back in 1980 and then… nothing. The Kilauea volcano on H...

‘Glass’ Spoiler Review: Breaking Down M. Night Shyamalan’s Disastrous Sequel to ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split’

“Please enjoy this film that took 19 years to make!” This sentence greeted me as I sat down at a pre-release screening of Glass last week, as the final part of a letter from its writer/producer/director M. Night Shyamalan to the audience. The upshot of the letter was basically, “Please don’t spoil Glass” (which I’m about to do, so…sorry!) but I could not help but latch onto that last sentence as I steeled myself for the crossover between two of Shyamalan’s earlier films, Unbreakable and Spl...

M. Night Shyamalan Says He’s Had the ‘Glass’ Ending in Mind Since 2000 – But It’s Still the Wrong Choice

Spoilers for Glass follow,obviously. M. Night Shyamalan has completed his superhero trilogy with Glass, now playing in theaters everywhere. The film brings together both Unbreakable and Split for a denouement that left many critics (myself included) rather cold. In my humble opinion, the Glass ending feels like a betrayal of everything I held dear about Unbreakable. But according to Shyamalan himself, he always intended to end his saga this way. M. Night Shyamalan On the Glass Ending In t...

‘Unbreakable’ Was a Superhero Movie Years Ahead of Its Time

The worldwide theatrical release of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass this week has prompted a rush of appreciation online for Unbreakable, the first in what became a trilogy of superhero films spread out over nineteen years. With its deconstructionist take on superhero mythology, the 2000 flick, starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, anticipated the great wave of 21st-century comic book movies and TV shows grounded in pseudo-realism. Everything from The Dark Knight trilogy to the Marvel Cin...

‘Glass’ Review: M. Night Shyamalan’s Superhero Sequel Is Anything But Super

With Glass, M. Night Shyamalan brings together the worlds of Unbreakable and Split, and the result is depressing and disappointing. After regaining most of his directorial mojo with his most recent work, Shyamalan now takes a huge, unfortunate step backwards, tarnishing the legacy of Unbreakable, his best movie, in the process. In 2000, M. Night Shyamalan dropped Unbreakable on unsuspecting moviegoers. The filmmaker was still riding high from his acclaimed, breakout hit The Sixth Sense, with...

Jackson about Marvel Studios’ new title character. Jackson, who plays a younger version of Nick Fury in the new movie, says Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) can time travel. Wait. What?

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Also Double as a Nick Fury Origin Story

Brie Larson‘s Carol Danvers is, of course, the main focus of Captain Marvel. But the superhero film also has a few familiar MCU faces backing her up – most notably Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury. Since Captain Marvel is set in the 1990s, we’re going to see a much younger, eyepatch-free Nick Fury. And based on the trailers released, Fury almost looks like Carol’s sidekick in the film, hitting the road with her when she crashes to earth. Does that make Captain Marvel a Nick Fury origin story as mu...

‘Captain Marvel’ Star Samuel L. Jackson Talks the Origins and Legacy of Nick Fury [Set Visit Interview]

In May 2018, I visited the set of Marvel Studios and Disney’s next superhero movie, Captain Marvel, which was shooting in Los Angeles. On set, we had a chance to talk with Samuel L Jackson, who is reprising his role as Nick Fury in this prequel. He walked in the room with performance capture tracking dots on his face, perhaps to help with the de-aging visual effect that we’ve seen in past Marvel films. Or perhaps they were shooting a scene where we find out how Fury loses his eye, as he also ha...

Honourable Mention: Ripper Street: A White World Made Red

I’d not, before this season 4 episode, watched any Ripper Street – a detective series set in Whitechapel at the end of the 19th Century. However my wife is a fan and had mentioned this episode to me and it came up in a chapter of Dracula an International perspective. In that volume it is described thusly: “The theme {connecting Dracula with the Ripper} was made even clearer through television’s Ripper Street episode, A White World Made Red set in 1897, the year of Dracula’s publication.

Peter Jackson Would Be Very Happy to Be Disgusting Again

Peter Jackson is mostly known now for his Lord of the Rings epics, but he launched his career creating ultra-gory horror-comedies that turned him into a kind of cult legend. Jackson hasn’t returned to the horror genre since 1996’s The Frighteners (unless you want to count King Kong as horror) but that doesn’t mean his gross-out days are done. The filmmaker is restoring his early splatter films, which has inspired him to admit he’d love to be “disgusting again.” Will we ever see a new Peter J...

Holiday Box Office Haul Proves Disastrous for ‘Welcome To Marwen’ and ‘Mortal Engines’

Robert Zemeckis and Steve Carell attempted to welcome audiences to Marwen over the holiday weekend, and audiences replied: “Thanks, but no thanks.” As holiday box office results reveal, Welcome To Marwen is on track to be one of the biggest box office bombs of 2018. The dramedy, which features a bunch of creepy CGI dolls, will have some company at the bottom of the box office heap. Mortal Engines, the Peter Jackson-produced YA adaptation about cities on wheels, is set to lose more than $120 mil...

Alternate Histories: The Two Film Adaptations of ‘Lord of the Rings’ on Their 40th and 15th Anniversaries

2018 is a major anniversary for The Lord of the Rings on screen. It’s been 40 years since the release of Ralph Bakshi’s animated version, and 15 years since the completion of Peter Jackson’s live-action trilogy. This dual anniversary – in addition to an imminent new adaptation on Amazon – makes for a fine opportunity to look at the two versions that exist so far. How do they differ? How do they align? Looking back at both from a distance, the answers surprised even me. A Halfling Half-Mo...
