32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 20: The Raven!

So today we kick off with a #TrackoftheDay that’s mainly Halloweenish by association. Yes, you may recognize this song–it was covered by INXS for The Lost Boys. But “Good Times” originated back in 1968 with another Australian band, The Easybeats. Both versions have their merits, but for tonight, here’s the original. Next, we revisit a radio show we’ve hit now and then over the years…it’s The Price of Fear, starring none other than Vincent Price himself. This episode from the BBC series ...

‘His Dark Materials’ Review: The Golden Adaptation Fans Have Been Waiting For

We do not speak of the 2007 feature film The Golden Compass. Chris Weitz’s botched adaptation of the acclaimed Philip Pullman fantasy novel came at the tail end of a string of Harry Potter knock-offs, and suffered from being reduced into a typical children’s fantasy adventure without all the religious themes and dark undertones that made Pullman’s epic inversion of Milton’s Paradise Lost so great. But I’m inevitably going to draw comparisons to that nonsensical disaster of a film in this review...

What’s The Deal With the Squid In ‘Watchmen’?

If you watched the Watchmen premiere last night (and you should’ve, because it was incredible), but have never read the Watchmen comic, one particular scene might have left you puzzled. In involved a quick rainfall of baby squid coming from seemingly nowhere, and it was something the characters on the show are clearly used to. There’s even an alarm system in place and an official squid street clean-up crew. So what’s the deal? If you’ve read the comic, you probably figured it out. But if your k...

Francis Ford Coppola Calls Marvel Movies “Despicable” While Martin Scorsese Holds His Beer

Martin Scorsese threw fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe into a tizzy recently when he said that the films of Marvel Studios and other superhero movies alike were not what he considered cinema. Instead, he equated them to theme park rides and even took it a step further by saying movie theaters needed to support what he called “narrative films” instead of superhero movies. At the same time, he did acknowledge the hard work that goes into them, though he reaffirmed his belief that they are no...
