New Trailer Released For ‘Birds Of Prey’

We are inching ever closer to the upcoming release of the highly anticipated Warner Bros. film “Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) which will hit theaters on February 7, 2020. Now the final trailer for “Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)” has arrived giving us even more of a glimpse into what will be in store for the film’s plotline. It helps introduce us to even more of the ever-growing DC-Universe and certainly has us intrigued. In the trailer, we get a better look at the villainous Black Mask aka Roman Sionis, and many believe he is after Harley Quinn due to the fact that she is seen in the trailer opening driving a truck directly into Ace Chemicals which ends up blowing up. It should be noted that the gate guarding the Ace plant reads Janus Corp which is owned by Sionis … hmm…definitely leads to some questions. The official synopsis for the film can be found below: You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the …

Nightmare Cinema Delivers The Horror Fan’s Deserve To See

This past Christmas I treated myself and got a subscription to Shudder the thriller and horror streaming service. Shudder has a lot of treats to offer horror fans including the hit series Creepshow and Joe Bob Briggs Last Drive-In just to name a few. The movies Shudder has to offer range from the supernatural to the slashers. One of the selling points in getting Shudder was the movie that I’m about to review called Nightmare Cinema. I’m a huge Mick Garris fan, and when I  heard about this film while listening to his podcast Post Mortem, I couldn’t wait to check it out. Nightmare Cinema was the first film I watched on Shudder. The film is an anthology series that follows five strangers into an abandoned theater where they watch their deepest fears playout on the big screen. It was a treat to see Mickey Rourke playing the Projectionist who owns the twilight zone like theater and his different conversations with his victims Each story in the movie is directed by a well-known director in the realm of horror. These …

One Of The Worst Hollywood Ideas Of The Year. Pitting Cats Against Star Wars

It takes a team of dedicated people to make a feature film. If you don’t believe me just watch the ending credits of any film that has come out in the last sixty to seventy years. It takes a lot of hard work and time to tell a tale in ninety minutes, and it can take one or two executives to turn it into a flop. A case in point is the decision to open Cats around the same time as Star Wars. In fact, on further investigation according to IMDB, both films were released on the same day. It is a crazy idea to release a film like Cats against Star Wars which has a built-in fan base of forty plus years. The idea of the fandom and the fan’s thirst for this film should have been enough warning to the producers of Cats and the studio to move the release date. That means somewhere out there someone who gets paid lots and lots of money sat in a board room and the idea of a Cats and Star …
