Netflix Review: Hulk Vs.

Hulk Vs.

Directed by Sam Liu and Frank Paur
Starring Fred Tatasciore, Bryce Johnson, Steven Blum, Matthew Wolf, Nolan North
Marvel Animation and Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Originally Released: January 27, 2009

For Marvel Fans, the summer release of The Avengers directed by Joss Whedon has been a challenging act to follow up with. It was an impressive epic release of geekporn, complete with its faults, and since its release, it's been tough to find other previous Marvel releases to fill the void left by Whedon's stunning success.

And while it's no alternative for The Avengers film, Netflix does have a bunch of Marvel flicks worth having a look at, including their animated line of releases. One that proves to be a fun diversion is Hulk Vs., an animated double feature that sets everyone's favorite green giant against Thor and Wolverine. [...]

Creature from the Black Lagoon Image

Universal has no problem rebooting their classic monster movie properties every now and again. Not too long ago they remade the great 1941 Lon Chaney classic The Wolf Man, and recent reports have indicated that new versions of Frankenstein (being developed by Guillermo del Toro) and The Mummy (currently set to be directed by Len Wiseman) aren't too far off.

Another property Universal has been trying to remake for a couple of decades now with little luck, is 1954's Creature from the Black Lagoon. [...]

Sinister Poster

Directed by Scott Derrickson
Written by C. Robert Cargill
Starring Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance, James Ransone, Vincent D'Onofrio
Summit Entertainment
Rated R | 110 Minutes
Release Date: October 12, 2012

From the producer of Insidious and Paranormal Activity, and the director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister stars Ethan Hawke as Ellison Osborne, a true-crime novelist hell-bent on uncovering the mysterious circumstances regarding a family's grisly murder.

Sinister opens with Super 8 footage of a family standing under a tree, their hands and feet bound, with bags over their heads and nooses around their necks. Slowly, the family of four is lifted by their necks and strangled, their legs kicking for life, until they are dead.

Months later, Osborne moves into the murdered family's home with his wife, Tracy (Juliet Rylance), and their two children Ashley (Clare Foley) and Trevor (Michael Hall D'Addario). While his family has no knowledge of their new home's trouble past, Ellison has strategically moved there to fully investigate the crime scene, as he plans on using the family's murder as the basis for his new book [...]

NYCC 2012: Report & Photos From The Convention Floor

NYCC 2012: Photo Gallery banner

New York Comic-Con, the gathering of all things geek, sci-fi/fantasy, comic books, and action figures, has hit the East Coast, as the Jacob Javits Center in New York City is hosting the convention all weekend. You can see our photos of Friday night's coverage here below.

While certainly not as big as the convention held annually in San Diego (which is generally considered the archetype mecca of geek conventions), the NYCC has its share of zealous minions who congregate in the large glass and steel edifice that is the Javits Center, milling and moiling around its carpeted floors, checking out its voluminous amount of booths filled with sci-fi/fantasy arcana, figurines, T-shirts, original and reproduced artwork, comics books dating back to the Silver Age, and the artists, writers, and creators of said minutiae. But without question, one of the coolest appeals of the entire convention has to be the scores of fanboys and fangirls, just regular Joes and Janes, decked out in costumes of their favorite superheroes, ranging from dollar store versions to authentic, mindblowing replicas of the genuine articles [...]
