Ghostbusters: Answer the Call Blu-Ray Review

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story.... 



Ghostbusters: Answer the Call Blu-Ray Review

About this Movie: Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return with Director Paul Feig's unique and hilarious take on the classic, supernatural comedy, led by the freshest minds in comedy today, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. Together they team-up to save Manhattan from a sudden invasion of spirits, spooks and slime that engulfs the city. 

Our Take: Well, here we are. Its the infamous film that got more public attention in 2016 than any other movie. It got hatred piled on it before anyone had even seen the movie. The fact that director Paul Feig dared to remake this classic film took courage. I myself am a HUGE Ghostbusters fan and have been since I was five years old, so I was excited and nervous about this film. I loved Bridesmaids and I'm a huge fan of all the women in the film, so I had high hopes. The movie isn't perfect, don't get me wrong, but it was fun as hell. The special effects are amazing and the characters are fantastic. This film is a great set-up for further movies, which hopefully we will see.  Give this one a chance with an open mind, its a lot of fun.

Mr. Deeds Goes To Town (80th Anniversary Edition) - Blu-ray Review

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story.... 


Mr. Deeds Goes To Town (80th Anniversary Edition) - Blu-ray Review

About the Film: When small-town innocent Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper) heads to New York to collect a $20 million inheritance, he ends up a target of ridicule thanks to Babe Bennett (Jean Arthur), a cynical reporter whose demeaning stories have made him the joke of the city. So when he discovers his sweet and unassuming new girlfriend is actually the hardboiled Bennett in disguise, a disillusioned Deeds decides to give his fortune away, an act of charity his crooked lawyer will stop at nothing to prevent. Winner of the 1936 Academy Award for Best Director and now fully restored in 4K, Frank Capra’s Mr. Deeds Goes to Town is the quintessential screwball comedy, an irresistible blend of laughter, wit and romance.

Our Take: This Frank Capra classic isn't to be missed. I'm a huge fan of the old black and whites and this one is a gem. You may recognize the story from the Adam Sandler remake that was done years back. This original is so much better and the new 4K restoration is amazing. The image and sound are both absolutely crisp and the film is still charming and funny.

NYCC ANNOUNCEMENT: JAMES ROBINSON WRITES JAMES BOND: FELIX LEITER MINISERIES, ILLUSTRATED BY AARON CAMPBELL

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story....



DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES
JAMES BOND: FELIX LEITER COMIC BOOK MINISERIES!

Eisner Award-Winning Writer James Robinson
Pens An All-New Series With Artist Aaron Campbell

October 3, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Superstar writer James Robinson (Squadron Supreme, Scarlet Witch, Starman) steps into the world of James Bond in an all-new miniseries, authorized by Ian Fleming Publications Ltd, centering around the character's CIA ally and friend Felix Leiter. Robinson will be teaming with artist Aaron Campbell (Harley Quinn, Uncanny, Sherlock Holmes) for Felix Leiter's first-ever comic book series!


In the new series, Felix Leiter -- now operating as an independent investigator -- finds himself in Japan, tracking down a beautiful Russian spy from his past. But when the mission takes a turn for the worse, he will discover that there are more deadly schemes taking shape in Tokyo... and beyond!

"Felix Leiter is a fantastically interesting character," says writer James Robinson. "He combines the best elements of the James Bond universe with the dark alleys and darker deeds of crime fiction. A private detective, done with a life of spying, who is constantly dragged back into that world, like it or not. I'm excited for readers to see the tale of intrigue and big action that I've dreamed up for Felix."

"We are incredibly fortunate to be working with such talented creators and great properties. When it comes to James Bond, the character is both an icon and a great property, and we've worked with very talented creators, including Warren Ellis and Andy Diggle, to capture the very essence of literature's greatest spy on the comic page. Now, to work with James Robinson on an immediate follow-up to his current original Dynamite series, Grand Passion, is extremely rewarding," says CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "When we approached him about writing this particular Bond series, we knew he was the perfect writer to bring this character to comics in Fleming's original voice. This is a must-read series for any James Bond fan."

"I've been a lifelong fan of James' writing and it's beyond a thrill to be working with him on not one, but two comic book projects this year," says Joseph Rybandt, Executive Editor at Dynamite. "The expansion of the 007 comic book world this time out focuses on his American counter-part, Felix Leiter, and sends him into Japan. It's a trip all Bond fans are going to want to take this January!"

James Robinson is a multiple Eisner-winning writer perhaps best known for the 1994 reimagining of DC's Starman, reimagining a Golden Age character to find a new widespread audience and take home an Eisner for Best Serialized Series. An expert at revitalizing classic concepts with a fresh new look and perspective, Robinson has also had celebrated runs on Justice Society of America, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Hawkman, and more. His creator-owned series Leave It to Chance for Image Comics won two more Eisner Awards in 1997, for both Best New Series and Best Title for Younger Readers. Additionally, he was nominated for an Eisner Award for Justice League: Cry for Justice, and also wrote the screenplay for the 2003 theatrical version of Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Aaron Campbell has worked as an interior artist on some of Dynamite's most well-known characters, including The Shadow and Green Hornet. He was also the series artist on Andy Diggle's Uncanny, which shares many of the same sensibilities as James Bond.

Felix Leiter first appeared alongside James Bond in Ian Fleming's very first novel, Casino Royale, published in 1953. He would later make appearances in Live and Let Die, Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger, Thunderball, and The Man with the Golden Gun, making him one of Bond's most frequent allies throughout the books. Originally a CIA operative, Leiter has begun to work for Pinkertons as a private detective when Bond encounters him in Diamonds Are Forever, although he is hired by the Agency for specific missions in the later books. In Live and Let Die, Felix is the victim of a shark attack in which he loses part of his right arm and left leg, sporting prosthetic limbs during his subsequent appearances. In this new miniseries, we meet Leiter post-injuries, and working independently from the CIA at his own detective agency.

James Bond: Felix Leiter #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' November 2016 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in January. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies with their local comic book retailers. James Bond: Felix Leiter will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

Batman Solo Film Titled: 'The Batman' According To Affleck



Ben Affleck recently confirmed that the title that is currently being used for the solo Batman film that he is co-developing is The Batman and that the script is coming along nicely. When Batman premiered in the Golden Age of comic books he was often referred to as 'The Batman' instead of simply Batman. The movie will share its title with the 2004 Jeff Matsuda helmed cartoon of the same name.

Stay tuned to Legions of Gotham for the latest on The Batman.

Emmy-Winner Tatiana Maslany Signs Orphan Black Trading Cards

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story.... 




Emmy®-Winner Tatiana Maslany Signs Orphan Black Trading Cards Season 1 from Cryptozoic and Boat Rocker Media

Tatiana Maslany Recently Won a Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Lead Actress
 
Lake Forest, CA – September 29, 2016 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, announces the release of Orphan Back Trading Cards Season 1 in partnership with Boat Rocker Brands, the merchandise and licensing arm of Boat Rocker Media. The set, which will be released in November 2016, consists of a 72-card base set, four different Chase Sets, and randomly inserted authentic Autograph, Wardrobe, and Printing Plate Cards.
 Various members of the cast, including Tatiana Maslany, who earlier this month won the Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for playing multiple roles on the hit show, have signed several Autograph Cards featuring clones Alison, Beth, Cosima, Helena, Rachel, Sarah, and Katja, as well as Felix Dawkins, Donnie Hendrix, and Detective Art Bell, among others. In addition, Wardrobe Cards in the set include several items worn by the cast, including Maslany, throughout Season 1. 
“Everyone at Cryptozoic is a big fan of Orphan Black and Tatiana Maslany’s amazing performance as so many different characters. We’re all celebrating her Emmy® Award and are thrilled to include signed Autograph Cards for this great new set of trading cards,” said George Nadeau, Manager of Product Development, Cryptozoic Entertainment.
The critically acclaimed premiere season of Orphan Black, on which the first set of trading cards is based, follows Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany), an outsider, orphan, and street-wise chameleon with a murky past and a tenuous future. When she witnesses the suicide of a stranger who looks just like her, she assumes “Beth’s” identity, planning to solve all her problems with a quick score. Instead, she stumbles into a kaleidoscopic mystery. The truth is, they are clones. There are more out there—genetic identicals, planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in wildly different circumstances. Not knowing who created them or why, Sarah begins to uncover the insidious plan behind the clone experiment. She forges deep bonds with her identical ‘sestras’, an unusual family that has to dig into the past in order to discover their origin and the designs on their lives.

Orphan Black Trading Cards Season 1, featuring Autograph Cards signed by Tatiana Maslany and other cast members, will be available at retailers nationwide in November.

Product Details:
  • Packs: 5 cards per pack, 24 packs per box
  • Base Set: 72 cards featuring images from Season 1 episodes

Filter to Headline Rock to Recovery this Sunday @ the Fonda, Honoring Mike Ness

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story....




1st Annual Awareness Event and Fundraiser
Supports Program's Dedication to Transformation

Rock to Recovery, a transformative program for those in treatment and recovery, holds its first annual awareness event and fundraiser on Sunday, October 2 at 7 p.m., at the Fonda Theatre. The first band will feature David Silveria, and Zac Baird from Korn, followed by an All Star Jam featuring Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Franky Perez (Apocalyptica), Billy Morrison (Billy Idol), Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction) and Erik Eldenius (Billy Idol) and the band will be joined onstage by some very special guests.
Rock to Recovery is proud to announce that Mike Ness, iconic singer, songwriter and guitarist, will receive the first ever, Rock to Recovery Award.  The award signifies Mike's  journey as a musician who has overcome a deadly addiction, to become a positive role-model not just as aas iconic Rock n Roll legend, but also for his role and commitment to helping people and the community as a whole. 
Also attending in support of the inaugural event will be actor Jason Wahler (The Hills), Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress Jamie Pressley, actor Jeremy Jackson, Californiacation actress Zita Vass, Pro-skater Tony Alva and MMA artist Tito Ortiz and special guest Dr. Drew, among others.
Former Korn guitarist Wesley Geer founded Rock to Recovery on December 12, 2012, in an effort to bring a new type of music expression group into treatment centers. Program participants form a band, write a song together, and eventually record their work, offering a therapeutic release to patients recovering from alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, cancer treatments and more, by providing participants an opportunity to feel a part of something bigger. Rock to Recovery typically operates as an adjunct service to a treatment center's curriculum, and in three short years, the program has become an essential part of the weekly treatment curriculum for nearly sixty programs.
Rock to Recovery's non-profit entity donates its services to state-funded programs and indigent rehabs like Salvation Army and Clare Foundation, programs for at-risk youths including Turning Point and North County Lifeline, as well as Breath of Heaven and the Wounded Warriors of the USAF. The musical nature of its songwriting sessions has proven to be a unique and clinically therapeutic tool, which effectively helps those suffering from PTSD, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, addiction and eating disorders.

To date, Rock to Recoveryhas been almost completely self-funded. Due to the program's success and subsequent demand, the organization endeavors to grow its reach through fundraising in order to bring the healing power of music to more people. 

Ticket information is available at Fondatheatre.com or AXS.com. Purchase tickets by phone by calling AXS at (888) 929-7849.

The event will be an excellent opportunity to celebrate Rock to Recovery's current work, learn more about the program and celebrate its successes, as well as support its goals for future action.

Warner Bros.' Blue Ribbon Content Developing Original Digital Series for Japanese Pop-Metal Sensation BABYMETAL

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story.... 



JAPANESE POP-METAL SENSATION BABYMETAL IS HEADED FOR AN
ANIMATED ADVENTURE VIA A NEW SHORTFORM SERIES FROM
WARNER BROS.’ DIGITAL STUDIO BLUE RIBBON CONTENT, IN
COLLABORATION WITH AMUSE GROUP USA

BURBANK, Calif. (September 28, 2016) — Fresh off the triumphant finale to their unforgettable 2016 world tour in front of more than 110,000 fans at the Tokyo Dome, Japanese pop-metal sensation BABYMETAL will embark on a new adventure with an original shortform series from Warner Bros.’ digital studio Blue Ribbon Content and Japanese powerhouse Amuse Inc’s subsidiary, Amuse USA. Manager and creator of BABYMETAL Key Kobayashi (a.k.a. KOBAMETAL) is also producing. The hybrid live-action and animated project is currently in development, it was announced today by Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series.

Sam Register said: “BABYMETAL have to be seen to be believed — a mind-blowing, fun combination of pop vocals, heavy metal music and dance choreography brought to life by three incredibly talented teenage stars. We are huge fans here at Blue Ribbon Content and are extremely excited to help bring the BABYMETAL phenomenon to U.S. audiences through this upcoming digital series.”

Tatsuro Hatanaka, President, Amuse, Inc. and Amuse USA, commented: “We are grateful for Warner Bros. and Blue Ribbon Content’s interest in BABYMETAL, and to be moving onward with the project. We are very much looking forward to working on this project with Sam and his team, and hope everyone will enjoy our completed work.”

The action-adventure will take viewers inside the magical world of heavy metal music as it comes under attack, and one lonely god, Kitsune, forms the warrior band BABYMETAL to save the day. In the series, SU-METAL, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL join together to ultimately redefine the genre. The series will also feature new live-action performances from the group, who will enter the animated world through a secret portal.

Fronted by three teenage girls with choreographed dance moves to accompany their vocals, BABYMETAL is making waves in the music industry with two chart-topping albums that have solidified the Japanese pop-metal band’s cross-continent success. In fact, the buzz-worthy group recently caught the attention of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who are taking them on their first UK tour in five years.

With a name inspired by “the birth of new metal” and a goal of fusing metal and pop music, the BABYMETAL lineup includes SU-METAL, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL. BABYMETAL has already achieved two major debut singles, both of which ranked in the Top 10 Oricon chart in Japan. Their first studio album also earned the #1 spot on Billboard’s World Album chart, and the official live music video for their debut album’s lead single,“Gimme Chocolate!!,” has garnered more than 60 million views on YouTube. Their sophomore album, METAL RESISTANCE, made them the first Japanese act to make the Billboard 200 album chart’s top 40 in 53 years. They have also won several awards, including:

·       The Breakthrough Act award at the 2015 Metal Hammer Golden Gods
·       The Spirit of Independence award at the 2015 Kerrang! Awards
·       MTV Europe’s Wildcard Best Japanese Act
·       The Discovery Prize at GQ Japan’s Men of the Year 2015 Awards
·       Women of the Year prize at Vogue Japan’s Women of the Year 2015 Awards
·       Best Live Act award at the 2016 Kerrang! Awards
·       Best Live Act award at the 2016 AIM Independent Music Awards

Since its inception, the Japanese metal dance unit has developed a devoted fan base that describes their concerts as both energetic and unforgettable. The band has also received glowing praise from the industry’s top acts, including Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash and Rob Zombie, who told Billboard that BABYMETAL “are like nothing I’ve ever seen before.” The new series will take their energy from the stage to the screen with a can’t-miss adventure for all ages.
