Gotham Characters

We all know the story of Batman. Bruce Wayne sees his parents gunned down in an alley by a mugger and eventually becomes Batman. What happened in between though? Unfortunately, we get more “answers” than we wanted in Fox’s Gotham premiere. With a Arrow entering season 3, Agents of SHIELD entering its sophomore season, new premieres such as Constantine and The … Read More

Island of Dr. Moreau (1996)Marlon Brando

    You all remember the infamous Island of Dr. Moreau from the 90’s; it came out, you saw it, most likely didn’t care for it, and moved on. If anything, you recall a mountainous Marlon Brando, painted white and playing piano with a tiny man. It turns out there are many causes for that films mediocrity, both conventional and … Read More

Hacked Nude Celebrity Photos for Dummies

jlaw

by Kari Tervo You and I both understand that looking at the hacked nude celebrity photos is wrong. We both understand that it is a sexual violation. We can see that it is a reflection of a misogynistic idea that men somehow, physically and/or visually, have ownership over women’s bodies. That this idea is itself reflected in rape, street harassment, … Read More

We have now reached the halfway point in this year’s Fantastic Fest and as traditional, there is a pretty big movie shown to mark the occasion. This year’s film was an advance screening of the awesome new Daniel Radcliffe movie Horns which is now one of my favorites of the whole fest. I was expecting good things based on the … Read More

4guide_IT FOLLOWS

It Follows pretty well describes the movie monster introduced in director David Robert Mitchell’s newest feature film. Like the embodiment of a guilty conscious or a bad dream, it will always catch up with you wherever you go. The film offers a new twist on the stalking murderer premise with lots of stylistic homage to its predecessors. Let’s take a … Read More

Babadook5

THE BABADOOK is a welcome addition to the movie monster lexicon and a reminder that the ‘Boogeyman’ genre doesn’t always have to be stale. Sure, all of the standards are here: a child in peril, the doubtful adults, and the creature lurking in the shadows but, writer and first-time director, Jennifer Kent has intricately constructed a horror film with depth. … Read More

4Guide_FORCE MAJEURE

The film was recently selected to be Sweden’s entry for the Academy Awards Best Foreign Language Film nomination. I was excited that it was selected to play Fantastic Fest this year, but I must admit I really didn’t know much about the story or characters when I went into the theater. At first glance of the synopsis, I thought I … Read More

Wyrmwood_image_3

Wyrmwood is Australia’s answer to the postmodern, semi-comedic zombie movie and it is pure Ozploitation fun. The plot you know pretty well; comet passes over, makes zombies, survivors gather together to get transportation and escape. Barry (Jay Ghallager) and Benny (Leon Burchill) are two survivors who team up to track down Barry’s sister Brook (Bianca Bradey). She’s being held and … Read More

The Prosecution of an American President

When George W. Bush assumed the presidency, I lost any remaining faith I had in the political process of this country. And, as you know, things just got worse from there. George W. Bush and his associates got this country involved in the dubious war in Iraq, resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths. The Prosecution Of An American President … Read More
