    Each year, Hollywood unleashes a string of high-profile movies in the summer. These movies often dominate the box office for the entire year. While the quality of these films usually vary, they are meant to be major crowd-pleasers that rack up big bucks for the studios.

    A recent trend shows that it is not always necessary to release a film in the summer for it to be a massive hit. If the story is strong and has broad appeal, a film can enjoy success any time of year. So, the big question is, after the big movies of summer 2013 Read more …

    With the success of the Avengers franchise, and with Iron Man, Thor and Captain America all receiving sequels to their highly successful movies in the next few years, the superhero industry is seeing a boom. However, just because we’re seeing a lot of something doesn’t mean that we’re seeing the best!

    Though there were promising rumors of a Black Widow movie, it seems like nothing is moving forward. The Black Widow offers a fascinating chance to look a the darker side of the superhero business, as the titular character, Natasha Romanoff, started Read more …

    You might have seen it on your Cable TV or Dish Network.

    The only thing more shocking than the announcement of Men in Black 3 (seriously, someone cite me some relevance on this Hollywood fiasco) was what transpired on the red carpet during the premiere that Mr. Will Smith attended with his wife, Jada. What seemed like some harmless ribbing between an interviewer and Mr. Smith soon turned ugly when the interviewer apparently attempted to kiss Smith on the lips. Smith spurned the advances and reacted incredulously before promptly smacking the interviewer to the hoots and hollers of adoring fans all over.

    Ever since, people have spoken about the incident and Mr. Smith’s reaction. While some people saw his reaction as a mixture of genuine outrage at the unwanted advance and his attempt at keeping his cool in public, some saw the incident has a show of homophobia. While Smith has never truly spoken ill about the homosexual community, he has certainly never demonstrated any real slant toward it and it is clear, if nothing else, that he was merely a straight man reacting quite reasonably to the unwanted romantic advances of another man. Either way, this incident will probably be remembered for far longer than MIB3. Here’s hoping.

    There has been a history of successful superhero dramas. There is even a history of a cheesy live action super hero children’s show, although the 60s Batman is quickly and wisely being forgotten by many. In a television atmosphere that included Heroes and No Ordinary Family, it seemed odd that the cape would fail. After all, audiences were tuning into Smallville on the Warner Brother’s Network.

    Smallville and even Heroes had something that the Cape didn’t. By acquiring the rights to the DC comics characters, the makers Read more …

    Will they ever bring “Firefly” back with new actors?

    Well, actually, they did. “They” being the fans.

    Browncoats: Redemption is a fan-made movie that premiered at DragonCon on September 4, 2010. Whedon was not involved in its production, though he did “give his blessing,” according to the project’s website. The film functioned as a sequel to the official Firefly movie, Serenity, and was released on DVD and Blu-Ray and shown at various conventions. The profits were distributed to Read more …

    The American Sci-fi Drama, Dead Like Me, found a way to make serious and depressing situations hilariously funny and light hearted giving fans a much needed fresh interesting television series. Unfortunately 2 seasons and one movie later it was canceled leaving many hardcore fans of the show wondering if there would ever be a season 3.

    Well I’m sad to say after 6 years since the last season of the television show and 2 years after the debut movie Read more …

    Joss Whedon’s series “Dollhouse” may have ended up flopping, but don’t count Whedon out. Whedon, who is best known as the creator of “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel” and “Firefly,” is already on to another project that seems quite likely to soar.

    Whedon is helming what is already being touted as one of the biggest, if not the biggest, movie of 2012. “The Avengers” is set to hit theaters next year, but there is already plenty of buzz circulating about the superhero flick. Stories, leaked photos Read more …
