Amber Heard looks fan-freakin-tastic in James Wan’s Aquaman

If there’s one thing that we can agree on about the DCEU it’s that Zack Snyder has a particular aesthetic. Blues that look like grey, greens that look like grey, greys that look like darker greys, you get the picture. Turns out that James Wan has a different take on things. Huzzah!

Star Wars: The Force-Feeding Continues

Editorial, News / Comments Off on Star Wars: The Force-Feeding Continues

I’ve been told that New Star Wars will finally wake up on December 18th. To be honest I actually had to ask Awesome Friday’s Matt when it comes out because I have Star Wars blindness. I’ve been muting commercials, and dead-eye scrolling through twitter feeds for months now.

I don’t like Star Wars.  I’ve never liked Star Wars.  And now that it has become inescapable, I downright loathe it.

But… Am I the only one? Continue reading…

Paul Rudd + Evangeline Lily

Holy crap, Marvel has updated their film schedule again with a sequel to Ant-Man titled Ant-Man and The Wasp. This will be the second film with a heroine’s name in the title (Captain Marvel has been rescheduled, more on that in a moment) which is a good thing. This also makes 2017, 18, 19, and 20 all 3 Marvel movie years, which is nuts.

News / Comments Off on Hey Vancouver: VIFF is Happening!

VIFF 2015

Just a heads up Vancouver! In case you’ve been living under a rock you know that the Vancouver International Film Festival is happening again right now! This will be my second year in attendance with a pass and I couldn’t be more excited. Stay tuned to this space over the next two weeks for reviews from the films I’m seeing.

There are a lot of interesting choices this year and you should make some time to see some of them. Lots of people work very hard to put this thing on, the least we can all do is attend! So head over to the VIFF website and plan a day to see a film or three. It’s good for you. Maybe I’ll see you there.

Zootopia Poster is full of Animal Puns

News / Comments Off on Zootopia Poster is full of Animal Puns

Zootopia

The direct of Zootopia, Byron Howard, has released the first poster for the movie. It seems to take place in a world with anthropomorphic animals. In a Disney movie. Weird, right? Is also seems like the primary industry in that world is pun manufacturing. Also weird for a Disney movie. There’s gotta be more to it, right? Some vast conspiracy.

We’ll find out just how deep this mystery runs next spring.
