When critic Caryn James saw Black Swan and Never Let Me Go the same day, she thought they'd both be Oscar bait. So why is Swan about to crack $100 million and Never Let Me Go hitting DVD and iTunes on Tuesday? Never Let Me Go is a haunting love triangle, the year's most unjustly overlooked film, according to both New York Times-turned-Indiewire critic James and the Phoenix Film Critics; Black Swan is, as novelist Scott Rose says, "Night of the Living Dead in tutus." Yet it's the $2.5 million-grossing lonesome-clones movie whose theatrical run is dead. Ironic, since one of Oscar season's pivotal players is Andrew Garfield, the Never Let Me Go star who plays Mark Zuckerberg's victim in The Social Network, the most critic-raved film in recent memory (though Black Swan is James' fave). And if Social Network beats King's Speech, you can thank the emotional wallop of Garfield's betrayal scene. It's the one scene producer Mike De Luca points to as the movie's beating heart (and … [Read more...] about Oscar Smackdown: ‘Black Swan’ vs. ‘Never Let Me Go’
x Review of: Deadpool Vs. Old Man Logan #1 Reviewcomic books: Thomas BaconReviewed by: Tom BaconRating:4.5On October 18, 2017Last modified:October 18, 2017Summary:Don't expect Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan to change the industry, just expect to have a lot of fun reading it.More DetailsDeadpool is all the rage right now. He’s long been one of Marvel’s most popular comic book characters, and the House of Ideas love to pit him against other heroes. In this case, he’s up against one of Marvel’s many Wolverines, Old Man Logan. It’s a promising premise. Both are semi-antiheroes, both enjoy going at it with impunity, and they even have something of a history. After all, Old Man Logan is an alternate-future version of the Ol’ Canucklehead himself. That means the dynamic is pretty similar to the one shared between Deadpool and Wolverine. Just with a lot more age-related jokes. Writer Declan Shalvey knows both characters well. He has experience writing … [Read more...] about Deadpool Vs. Old Man Logan #1 Review

BEGIN SLIDESHOWWe chat with Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo and Arielle Carver-O’Neill on the Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 setLast year, ComingSoon.net got a chance to visit the Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 set in New Zealand and chat with the cast, including Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo and Arielle Carver-O’Neill, who plays Ash’s daughter Brandy.This season promises to be even bloodier than last time we saw our intrepid gang of Deadite hunters. It’s also got a twist. Ash has a daughter. We got to check out the set, which was covered in blowing leaves and the debris of a town that has been through a Deadite war. The scene took place at the end of the Episode 10 finale, so there isn’t much we can reveal, but let’s just say that there are cars upside down, the town is trashed and everyone we spoke to was covered in sticky fake blood. Well, that actually happens every episode, but we can tell you this; the scene was … [Read more...] about Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Set Visit at ComingSoon.net
When I was younger, Martin Luther King Jr Day was like a preview for Black History Month. We were taught about King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the March on Washington, and how he took his inspiration from Gandhi to pursue non-violent tactics towards Civil Disobedience. I was not taught that, in his time, King was seen as an extremist.American History tends to mythologize its heroes to the point where it becomes blurry as to what was the actual truth about the men, women, and movements that helped shape this country. Martin Luther King Jr. has been used as the equivalent of rolling a D20 (D&D reference there) in discussions about groups like Black Lives Matter, The Black Panthers, or other Civil Rights leaders like Malcolm X. During the election, I would see Bernie supporters complain that black people who were voting for Hilary over Bernie were “choosing a Goldwater girl over someone who marched with MLK!!” They complain that groups … [Read more...] about How Yesterday’s Enemies Become Today’s Heroes: Martin Luther King Jr.
