Young Terrorists: Pierce the Veil

Young Terrorists Vol. 1 is the latest trade paperback from Black Mask Comics. Written by Matt Pizzolo, who previously wowed audiences with Godkiller (the premise of which sounds UNBELIEVABLY cool: ‘Fallen gods, weaponized orgasms, sex-addicted technowizards, organ-stealing hookers, government conspiracies…’), Young Terrorists is one of these comics that is meant to ...

The Hugo awards have been steeped in controversy this year. The Sad Puppies, as well as the even more politically extreme Rabid Puppies, took advantage of low voting turn-out in the nominations ballots in order to flood the ballot with their own favourites. Trouble is, their political agenda isn’t what ...

Mistress America: You are much more of an asshole than you initially appear

Mistress America is the latest film from indie auteur Noah Baumbach and another collaboration with Greta Gerwig, following on from Greenberg and Frances Ha. The film follows pretentious, infuriating, self-absorbed people interacting in a vaguely preposterous version of reality. And god help me, I liked it. The film follows Tracy ...

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

In the war on original intellectual properties, we have the latest reinvention of a long dormant series in Guy Ritchie’s muddled spy flick The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The original show was a classic of the 60s Cold War spy craze, fondly remembered by some but not quite having the longevity ...

Trainwreck: You all know one

I know very little of Amy Schumer. With the flood of good reviews for her debut feature film (she wrote the script, Judd Apatow directed), I couldn’t help but sit up and take note. Who is this woman and where has she come from? Having been doing stand-up since 2004, ...

Bill Murray to appear in the Ghostbusters reboot

While having been hesitant to appear in the proposed Ghostbusters 3 after the sequel in the franchise didn’t meet critical expectations (and a supposedly weak script), Murray has said yes to Feig’s all-female reboot. And why wouldn’t he? A cameo is far safer, after all, and given his charisma, there’s ...

Ronda Rousey to star in biopic about herself

I feel like the walls of reality are caving in. Biopics, no matter how much they may be ‘based’ in reality, are always fiction. But when the subject of the biopic is also the star of the film…. Where does reality end and fiction begin? For those of you unfamiliar ...
