Review: Fullmetal Alchemist (2017)

It seems that in recent years there has been an uptick in the amount of manga based stories getting live-action treatments. Some of them good, some not so good, some really bad. So it's no surprise that the show that was voted as the most ...


Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...


Oz Perkins to adapt A Head Full of Ghosts

Oz Perkins has been tapped to rewrite and direct an adaptation of Paul Tremblay’s novel A Head Full of Ghosts. The novel tells the story of a woman recounting her childhood experience of her family treating her older sister’s ...

A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 gets a second trailer

A Series of Unfortunate Events was one of my favorite book series growing up. It was morbid, dark, and had a very British sense of humor. Thus far, Netflix has been doing a bang up job adapting the series. Season 1 had plenty of twists and...


John Cena in negotiations to star in Duke Nukem movie

Well, color me surprised. According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Cena is in talks to star as Duke Nukem in an upcoming film adaption of the 90s FPS franchise. Yeah, you heard that right. The film was originally going to made by Dime...


Review: The End of the F**cking World

An adaptation of the 2013 graphic novel by Charles Forsman, The End of the F**king World is an early 2018 drop for Netflix aimed to cash in on the troubled teen variety of television series' success. Maybe it's done in a slightly diffe...


Andy Serkis' Jungle Book movie retitled and given synopsis

A long time ago (in this galaxy) WB announced that they were going to make a Jungle Book movie with Andy Serkis directing a mo-cap heavy film. Then Disney came along and said they were making one too, and then they made one, and then i...


Danger Girl movie rights scooped up

I'd like to tell you that I got into the Danger Girl comics when they first came out because I was into their tongue-in-cheek take on the James Bond spy film genre. But I was a teenage boy in the 90s so I think we all know why I picked...

News has been brewing for days now that Amazon was pursuing a deal with Warner Bros. and the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien to bring an adaptation of The Lord of the Rings to television (or streaming), and today, it was confirmed.

News broke Friday that Amazon is in discussions with with Warner Bros. and the J.R.R. Tolkien estate to acquire television rights for the epic fantasy classic. Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, is looking for content that is "large-s...


Disney announces the cast for their live action Lion King

And the live action adaptions continue. We've known that Disney has been and will be rolling out live action versions of their classic movies until they don't have anymore to adapt, and the next one on the docket is The Lion King. With the ...


Review: Last Flag Flying

Richard Linklater's movies tend to work best when they feel like hanging out. There's a breeziness to the language as people walk, talk, and spend time with one another that resembles genuine conversation. The Before trilogy best exemplifie...


Review: Blade of the Immortal

Takashi Miike is, in the purest sense of the word, prolific. He has dedicated himself to churning out film after film, year in and year out, often with wildly differing levels of success. Sure, it’s easy to look at fantastic works lik...


Runaways come together in official trailer

Following the release of Runaways' teaser trailer earlier this month comes the official full trailer for the latest TV entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The show adapts the comic series created by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, Y: The Last ...


Review: Wonderstruck

Watching Todd Haynes' Wonderstruck is like watching a juggler who can't quite find the right rhythm. Parallel narratives unfold 50 years apart (one in 1977 and one in 1927), but it takes 20 minutes before the cross-cutting finds a proper fl...


Newest Black Panther trailer shows its claws

By the success of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the looks of Thor: Ragnarok, and this latest trailer for Black Panther, it seems Marvel is learning from their past mistakes and allowing their directors a bit more wiggle room within their...


Bob's Burgers serving up a movie for 2020

Bob's Burgers is one of those shows I never expected to love as much as I do now. It started a bit slowly, but once it really steered into its grounded absurdity (an oxymoronic nature Bob's Burgers balances so well) it took off and some of ...


Sonic the Hedgehog movie now at Paramount

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is moving studios. Deadpool director Tim Miller was going to produce with his pal Jeff Fowler directing and Sony had the rights to make it, but they put the proj...


NYFF Review: Zama

Zama is a novelistic film, but not because it's an adaptation of a 1956 Argentinian novel by Antonio di Benedetto. Watching Zama creates a feeling that's similar to reading. The shots are so carefully composed, the sound design so meti...


Netflix's 1922 trailer cashes in on Stephen King It craze

Hot off the heels of the wildly successful film adaptation of Stephen King's It, we're getting a Netflix adaptation of a King novella, 1922, park of 2010's collection Full Dark, No Stars. It looks like we've got some dirt farmers who aren't...


Taika Waititi in talks to direct reborn Akira adaptation

It's not like we haven't been here before so no one get to excited, but Deadline is reporting that Taika Waititi is in talks to direct a live action Akira adaptation. WB has kept the adaptation in development hell for years now wi...


First poster appears for Alicia Vikander's Tomb Raider

We're getting closer and closer to a time when we can all say we've seen a Tomb Raider movies without Angelina Jolie, and as such we now have a poster for that movie. As you can see in the poster this new film takes its cues from ...


Review: American Assassin

There was a time back in the 90s and early 2000s when an American spy or hero or killer guy in a movie could go over to another country, kill all the terrorist bad guys, come back and the audience would think, "Yup, that was OK to do." But ...


Review: It

Summer is over. We're entering the weekend past Labor Day. And yet, officially, technically (sorry everyone back in school), we've still got two more weeks. Lucky us. Lucky that now, when someone comes a knocking slinging nonsense like, "Th...
