Mania Exclusive Interview: Adam West (Article) - 11/11/2014 3:59:42 PM

"Pure West" - that's awesome Dazzler! :)

Star Wars Rebels: Rise of the Old Masters Review (Article) - 10/30/2014 2:06:52 AM

I know that the Dark Horse comics are now non-canon, but Master Luminara Unduli was killed on Kashyyyk during Order 66, and whilst her death isn't shown in Episode III (only in the comic adaptation), she is still seen in the film, on Kashyyyk when Yoda is there. I guess she could have been captured, but I thought Order 66 was just about killing the Jedi. I know I'm nitpicking, inconsistency just bugs me, hopefully they'll have an explanation for her survival that makes sense.

Vinjoy - yeah, I did see those movies, because RDJ isn't a violent thug who used to beat his wife and rape a 19 year old. Half the music and movie stars in the world have had drug problems, and that's something they're doing to themselves, so it in no way bears comparison to sexual violence, in and of itself. Drink driving is serious, to be sure, and people who do it over and over are putting more lives than their own at risk, and that's pretty deplorable. Presumably the fact that RDJ isn't doing that and never killed anyone means he got over that time in his life, and it may have been pure luck that he didn't kill anyone, we'll never know. But he also never raped a 19 year old, which isn't something that just happens by accident when you've had too much to drink.

Anyway, like I said, I've got no problem with Mike Tyson making this show or doing whatever he's doing to get on with his life, I just have no interest in watching this because I'm not comfortable with that. Not sure why that warrants any kind of response like the one you gave.

Yep, looks great!

Maybe it's just me, and I admit it does look really funny, but I have to say that a convicted rapist making a comedy cartoon doesn't sit well with me. I'm all for letting the guy get on with his life, having paid the legal penalty and all, but I don't think I could watch this :P

31 Days of Horror: Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 (Article) - 10/3/2014 6:06:25 AM

Two things about this movie - firstly I agree with everything in the review, and I would add that one of the amazing things about the film is the music - it's epic. Secondly, I can completely understand where Bob ^ is coming from - I remember watching the UNCUT version of this movie many, many years ago with friends while we were all very baked, and the scene where the psych patient tries to slice maggots off his skin with a straight razor that OH DEAR GOD JUST GOES ON AND ON AND ON left us all screaming and traumatised (one of my friends managed to get off the couch and crawl across the floor like Quaid at the end of Total Recall, and turned the tv off). Thankfully when I bought the film on dvd (I got the UK edition) it was NOT the uncut version. Hellraiser II is a great example of a film that a) surpassed the original and b) benefitted from having some of the EXTREME torture porn cut the fuck out of it!  So, talking about my nicely edited dvd, I freaking love this movie! The uncut version, not so much. Strong is my stomach for the gore, but not that strong, and with this film, it seriously detracted from what is otherwise a fantastic horror film.

Using archival footage of Rik Mayall - RIP :(

Millennium Falcon and X-Wing Spotted! (Article) - 9/10/2014 7:35:52 PM

You think there won't be green screens? Or are they just going to pick up a full size Millennium Falcon and plunk it down on whatever full-size no-cgi-anywhere set they've created?

Doesn't look very 'found footage'.

First Look: New Superman Suit Spotted! (Article) - 8/20/2014 7:06:33 PM

Looks like the muscles are painted on? Cavill's got the physique, they didn't do that in MoS, so why now? Or is it added moulding? Or just the way the light is catching the suit?
