Superman: Doomsday is the first in a series of DC Universe animated straight-to-video movies that will be released over the next year or so. The series has also released Justice League: The New Frontier, Batman: Gotham Knight, and the most recent Wonder Woman movie which Marla has been so grievously coveting of late (I’ll SHOW you “very long wait,” Netflix!). I’ll be reviewing the entire series in due time.

Holy crap! Kick-ass American Psycho director Mary Harron signs on for the film version of Rachel Klein’s twisted vamp novel The Moth Diaries! Ginger Snaps screenwriter Karen Walton’s name has been attached to the project. A female director helming a female screenwriter’s adaptation of a female author’s horror novel? SIGN. MARLA. UP.

Near Dark

There’s been some noise lately about a remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s groundbreaking 1987 genre-bender Near Dark.  And while praying to a merciful god to prove this lamentable rumor false, I realized that the time had long since arrived for a rewatch of that beautifully strange film.

Both Frog brothers are in for the straight-to-vid Lost Boys 3. Riveting?

Review Preview:

Near Dark this week, Superman/Doomsday next week, and I’m trying to decide whether or not to watch and review Alex Proyas’ Friday release Knowing. What do you guys think? I mean, it has Nic Cage in it, which means it has a 5% chance of being outrageously magnificent (Adaptation, Raising Arizona) and a 95% chance of stinking like a hatful of assholes (Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, ConAir, and every other movie he’s ever made). But then there’s also Alex Proyas. Help Marla out! Do you guys care about this movie at all?
