Something to Do: Movies

On Wednesday we get Victor Frankenstein as told from Igor’s perspective, and The Good Dinosaur, an animated Disney/Pixar presentation. Both films are obviously taking advantage of the holiday weekend to pack in a couple of extra days worth of box office receipts to bolster their opening weekend take, but there are a few good things [...]

Something to Watch: Discs

Movies has American Ultra, a wonderfully twisted little spy thriller comedy that everyone should watch at least once. I don’t know anything about Jim Henson’s Turkey Hollow beyond the fact that it is a family friendly fantasy film made for TV and aired on the Lifetime network. But as someone who likes all things Muppet, [...]

American Gods coming to TV

Neil Gaiman’s excellent book American Gods is headed for TV, with screenwriter Bryan Fuller of Pushing Daisies fame heavily involved. The book won the Hugo Award, the Bram Stoker Award, the Locus Award, and the Nebula Award, which is quite a range of recognition for a single novel; I can’t wait to see what they [...]

Something to Do: Movies

The only real choice this week is the conclusion to its series: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. Hopefully this will live up to the story Suzanne Collins created when she wrote the books. Everyone has seen the trailer by now, so instead I am including a wonderful fan tribute parody theme song.

Alice Through The Looking Glass trailer

Several days ago Disney released its first look at Tim Burton’s Alice Through The Looking Glass, the sequel to his Alice in Wonderland from several years ago. It definitely looks like it needs to be seen on the big screen, just like the first one did, and you will be able to do so next [...]

Allegiant trailer

They released The Divergent Series: Allegiant trailer the other week, and it looks quite good. There is a less-than-trivial chance they will close the story with a typical Hollywood ending rather than the original one from the book series, but that might not be a bad thing (at least for folks who were as unhappy [...]

Live Action (sort of) Jungle Book trailer

CGI is getting downright amazing as this trailer for Disney’s new The Jungle Book proves. The film will be hitting the big screens on April 15th, 2016, and as you can see from the trailer it does a great job of blending live action footage of the man cub with computer created animals to bring [...]

Something to Do: Movies

The primary selection this week is Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, based on the second book in James Dashner’s Maze Runner YA series. There are 5 books so far, so if it does well enough at the box office there may be three more films coming. For those wondering, I linked to the Japanese page [...]

Neil Gaiman on Humble Bundle

If you haven’t checked them out before, the folks at Humble Bundle are worth a look. They come up with various bundles of items and offer them on a pay what you want basis, then split the proceeds between the content creators and one or more charities chosen by that creator (if it is more [...]

Fifth Wave trailer

Yes, I know that recently I have been using Friday’s to post about things you can watch streaming online, and I will be getting back to that next week. But I just found the new trailer for The Fifth Wave, so I had to post it. Based on the best selling trilogy by author Rick [...]
