The presses have been offline for a while thanks to real life, but real life didn’t stop news from happening. Here are a few of the stores we found interesting or exciting while we were sleeping.
Movies, News, Television / Comments Off on Awesome News: Catch-up Edition #1
Movies, Television, Trailers / Comments Off on Trailer Roundup: Bad Boys, Invisible Men, Animated Hedgehogs, and mind bending horrors
I’m behind with the trailer roundup this week so the write-ups may be brief, but there are a ton of trailers to get through so let’s do this thing! You will have noticed the red band at the top of this post so yes at least one of the trailers is rated R, which seems like a natural fit with the kids’ movies also in this post. Fun!
Movies, Television, Trailers / Comments Off on Trailer Roundup: A Grudge, A Photo, A Flower, A Banker, A Classic, and a New Pope
This week we only have a few new trailers for you. There’s a new remake of The Grudge, a scifi horror festival darling in Little Joe, romance in The Photograph, awards bait in The Banker, grime in the new CHristmas Carol adaptation, and a brand new pope on HBO. Let’s watch!
Movies, News, Television / Comments Off on Awesome News: Getting out of the Star Wars, Going Back into the Spider-Verse
There has been more than a few big news stories this week and I barely know where to begin. Let’s dive right in!
Movies, Posters, Television / Comments Off on Poster Gallery: The Mandalorian, Queenie & Slim, Little Women, and more!
Little Women, Richard Jewell, The Aeronauts, and Ford v Ferrari all have new posters this week but I know you’re only here for The Mandalorian.
Television, Trailers / Comments Off on Trailer: The Mandalorian (+ 70 Captures)
There’s a new trailer for the Disney+ series The Mandalorian. Let’s take a closer look!
It has been kind of a slow week for movie trailers, but HBO and Netflix have released some series trailers that are definitely worth taking a look at. This week we have trailers for The Mandela Effect, Bloodshot, and Adopt a Highway as well as HBO’s Watchmen, the final season of Silicon Valley, and 2020 series The Outsider, and finally, Netflix has released a trailer for the third season of The Crown featuring a whole new cast.
Oh, and a B-Movie franchise called "Star Wars" released a trailer as well.
Reviews, Television / Comments Off on Review: ‘The War of the Worlds’ is a thoughtful, Edwardian adventure
The War of the Worlds is a classic story that has been adapted numerous times. Whether your favourite is the Orson Welles radio drama, the Tom Cruise/Steven Spielberg adaptation, or Independence Day this is clearly a story you’ve seen before.
What’s interesting though is that despite the many adaptations there are precious few that take place within the time frame of the original written story. Which is one of the two refreshing changes with this thoughtful adaptation of the story produced by the BBC and airing on T+E in Canada.
If you’re expecting an action blockbuster I’m telling you that you should temper those expectations right now, this adaptation is a thoughtful slow burn more concerned with the effect the invasion would have than the invasion itself. That is to say, it’s pretty good.
Movies, News, Television / Comments Off on Awesome News: Lost Scorsese films, new musicals, a reunion, a spinoff, and more!
All the news that is news or at least all the news that I found interesting. That’s called "curation" folks. Let’s dive right into what was going on this week, shall we?
Television, Trailers / Comments Off on Trailer Roundup, TV Edition: Star Trek, Star Trek, Snowpiercer, and also Star Trek
