The 1978 Project: Kaedrin Movie Awards Winners

The nominations for the 1978 Project edition of the Kaedrin Movie Awards were announced last week, to much fanfare. After a week of rampant speculation and record-setting bets in Vegas sportsbooks, it’s time to announce the winners. Next week, I’ll announce the winners of some more goofy, freeform categories that we call the Arbitrary Awards, and not long after that, I’ll post my top 10 of 1978. And now, the KMA goes to: Best Villain/Badass: Michael Myers, played by Nick Castle in Halloween. ...

How the Original ‘King Kong’ Influenced ‘Godzilla’ (And How Lesser-Known Dino Movies Influenced Them Both)

When Godzilla vs. Kong roars onto HBO Max and storms into U.S. theaters on March 31,   it will mark the first full-fledged crossover in the seven-year cycle of shared-universe monster movies from Legendary Pictures. The current MonsterVerse is young, but for its giant denizens, it’s merely the latest chapter in the history of two long-running, closely intertwined film franchises. Both Godzilla and Kong lay claim to the title of “king,” which puts them immediately at odds, and it wouldn’t be a f...

Warner Bros. and DC Have Decided It’s Time For an ‘Hourman’ Movie

Folks, the time is almost upon us: the moment we’ve all been waiting for since before World War II, when a certain comic book character first graced the pages of Adventure Comics #48. I’m talking, of course, about everyone’s favorite comic hero, Hourman, and the fact that Warner Bros. and DC have finally – finally – given in to the cacophonous clamoring of the populace and decided to do what they should have done years, nay, decades ago: make an Hourman movie.

Michael Crichton‘s books and films have helped shape pop culture of the 20th and 21st century — from Jurassic Park to Westworld to The Andromeda Strain, the late author was an inarguable force in genre and action storytelling.
