I attended the 2015 Texas Frightmare Weekend and thought it made sense to post the first video of this year's video interviews in conjunction with "May the 4th Be With You Day" and "Revenge of the 5th" Day. One of the themes of this year's convention was the Scream films. I had the opportunity to interview actor and model Joseph Gatt, who voiced Lord Scourge in Star Wars: The Old Republic. He's been in movies like Thor, Star Trek Into Darkness, Pulse, Banshee, Teen Wolf, and more. Gatt also voices legendary characters in other video games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and God of War: Ascension.
The stand-alone films in the Star Wars Universe will be framed by the title Star Wars Anthology. The first of the movies to be announced and receive a teaser trailer and showcase concept art is Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, which centers on a rogue band of resistance fighters who unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans and bring new hope to the galaxy. Now is the perfect time for someone high up in the ranks of Lucasfilm to pitch the idea of a Death Troopers film to the powers-that-be.
Actress Ambyr Childers is quickly making a name for herself in different genres on television and in movies. Since taking her first job in the BBC comedy series S Club 7 in L.A., she's moved on to bigger opportunities like a role in the popular long-running American soap All My Children and supporting characters in The Master, Gangster Squad, 2 Guns, and several others. With Vice, Childers re-enters the world of science fiction she first dabbled with in the award-winning 2011 independent film Love.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. Childers about her work on Vice. She shared her experiences working with Bruce Willis and tells readers what to expect from the movie. Childers also expands on her role of Kelly the "Artificial" and takes us behind the scenes of the making of the film.
Michael Ironside is one of the most recognized faces among genre fans. He’s become known as the fearsome baddie who gives everyone’s hero a run for their money. Among his 229 film credits, many of those include appearances in sci-fi and horror productions like Scanners, Total Recall, Highlander II: The Quickening, Terminator Salvation, and many more.
The year 2015 is upon us and it’s safe to say that we haven’t lived up to all the expectations filmmakers had for us. Some of their negative predictions might be reflective of what’s come to pass while other less pessimistic ones haven’t quite transpired. I’ll let you be the judge of whether or not the good outweighs the bad when it comes to where humanity sits in the grand scheme of things after watching a few or all of the movies I’ve listed which take place in the year 2015.
Marvel and Disney give the gift that keeps on giving all year round with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy on 3D and regular Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Download. Although high expectations were had by both studios, I was up in the air until seeing it in theaters. Why would anyone want to see a movie about a bunch of characters no one is familiar with flying around the universe? Thankfully, I was wrong. What we get is an exhilarating space opera with enough connections to the Avengers to pull in a mainstream crowd hungry for more super hero escapades.
Not many directors these days have the lofty ambitions Christopher Nolan possesses. He goes against the grain of Hollywood more so than any other modern filmmaker. Even his Dark Knight Trilogy wasn’t as conventional as many would think a super hero movie would be. His latest endeavor, Interstellar, pushes Nolan even further into the realm of exceptional and atypical storytelling.
If the success of Guardians of the Galaxy has taught us anything, it’s that the world is ready for heroes as bizarre as a raccoon handling a large laser rifle and piloting a starship. Who would have thought even six months ago that audiences would be so open to such a seemingly ridiculous sight? That being said, I think it’s time for another Disney-owned property to pull a literal rabbit out of their hat. The world is obviously ready for Lucasfilm’s own version of a gun-wielding four-legged furry creature. Jaxxon, the green-haired hare should get his own Star Wars spin-off!
Another week goes by and yet more Star Wars: Episode VII rumors have bubbled to the surface. Fortunately this time brings a little more potential details on plot, specifically giving a reason why Luke Skywalker may have been missing all this time. Come inside to check out the latest (though potential spoilers abound), and some scuttlebutt on who's piloting the Millennium Falcon these days.
Although I’m not a big Marvel Comics fan, I have no problem admitting that they’ve found a successful formula for their cinematic universe and stuck by it justifiably. After testing the waters with the Thor movies and Avengers, they’ve fully committed to the genre and jumped into science fiction territory with Guardians of the Galaxy.
