We'll miss you, Harvey.

 Welcome back to News Day Tuesday, where you might find my reporting to be rather lackadaisical because I’m so sad about Harvey Pekar.  Also: I’m lazy.  

  

The 2010 Comic Con schedule is up! Go here to make yourself physically sick with envy, just like me!

  

I’m not sure how I feel about this All About Evil trailer. Perhaps…warmly? Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Insert Clever Headline Here!

 Hello all! Thanks to the delightful Reverend Jon for subbing last week. Let’s get to it! 

 

Movie titles keep getting dumber and dumber, to my infinite delight. 5nal Destination is going to rock my gleefully mocking/secretly enjoying ass off!

The international trailer for Let Me In looks like the shit just shit. Even Hit Girl can’t save this one! Check out the original,  folks (titled Let the Right One In, from Norway). It’s easily accessible from your friendly neighborhood Netflix account. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! More panic-inducing Dark Tower news!

 Yes, before it was JJ and now it’s Ron, but either way it’s WRONG. However, I do approve of the television series angle

 

Speaking of JJ, he has a secret project coming up called Super 8 which may or may not be a sequel of sorts to Cloverfield

 

I saw this Jonah Hex trailer last night for Nightmare, and oh lord, is it lolz-inducing. Continue reading

Kick-Ass

Posted in Comic Book Movie Review, Film Review with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2010 by xymarla

You guys! Hit Girl and Big Daddy is totally the best movie I’ve seen this year! It’s so heartwarming and original and provocative at the same time! I love their relationship and their fearlessness, and…oh wait.  This movie is called Kick-Ass? Well, I guess it’s still pretty awesome.

Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic book  is fiercely entertaining. The superhero genre has been taking itself far too seriously of late (Dark Knight, I’m looking at you!), and Kick-Ass takes those gloomy conventions, drenches them in twisted irony and spits them back out.

Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson, center) is an ordinary, somewhat nerdy high school student. There’s no romantic devastation to his life. His mother died of an aneurism when he was young, but he lives with a loving and attentive father. He’s got a couple of friends, a curly moptop, no special powers and no all-consuming lust for vengeance. Dave’s understated voice-over tells us early on not to expect a lot of melodrama from his origin story: “Like most people my age, I just existed.” Continue reading

 presskid by you.

Hello, my little scoop-hungry fiends! I’ve got all sorts of goodies for you this week, so let’s hop to, shall we?

twilight

Okay, so I’ve never read nor seen Twilight, and I doubt I will. But this screenplay purports to tell the story of What If Twilight Were Short and Also Made Sense? And that movie? I would watch. Although I probably still wouldn’t read the book.

vampire chronicles

Need further evidence of the pervasive magic emanating off Robert Downey Jr? This news has me actually interested in a new movie with the word “vampire” in the title! GASP!
