Mania Review: John Wick (Article) - 10/24/2014 9:11:50 AM

Theicon...you are obviously not an animal lover.  I know quiet, bookish little women that love their dogs more than people who could turn into killers if someone dared to harm them,  so I can definitely buy into a whacky tale about a hitman going over the edge when his pooch gets offed.  Besides it's Reeves - Point Break, The Matrix, The Replacements, Constantine, Speed...I think his movies are a gas.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: A Hen in the Wolf House Review (Article) - 10/23/2014 1:04:31 PM

 Tim Janson  Disney seems fine with the poor ratings (no rumors about cancelling the show) so why worry. If you like the show do you really care  if a bunch of others also like it.  Moving it to Sunday nights as someone suggested vs. Sunday Night Football, The Walking Dead, and HBO and Showtime original programming doesn't make sense to me.  MAoS apparently serves some purpose for Disney or why would they support it so strongly and pump so much money into it.

Tim says that the show is finally becoming what we hoped it would be all along. What is that specifically? I'm not sure what Shield, Hydra or this show are all about? 

Disney appears to be making some moves in an attempt to grow the audience.  For instance they are adding more eye candy, and some guy / girl relationship angles which make the show look and feel more like Hawaii Five-0 (Five-0 gets better than twice as many viewers, based in no small part on the fact that some women actually watch that show).

Personally I wish they'd stop with all the crazy gadgets (Wonder Woman wants her invisible jet back). It looks like it's taking place in 2014 but all those gizmos they use not only don't exist they probably never will.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Predestination Official International Trailer #2 (Article) - 10/22/2014 7:42:38 PM

 Looks mildly interesting.  I like Ethan Hawke, sad that he seems to have lost out in the Dr. Strange sweepstakes.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer Premiere Date! (Article) - 10/22/2014 7:26:23 PM

Marvel's twitter response was witty / funny.

My guess is that Marvel leaked the trailer...Why wouldn't they. I don't think Disney is showing this trailer on MAoS to save money.  Disney has a license to print money. I'm sure they'll broadcast another trailer for the flick during the Super Bowl.  I expect that they're showing this here and now to generate more interest in the TV series.  I doubt that airing the trailer on MAoS will cause an appreciable increase in viewers for the series, since all those excited about the trailer are all ready loyal fans of the weekly show.

I was curious, so I watched the trailer on Dailymotion.  I'm not a fanboy.  I thought that it looked...well...errrr...familiar. I expect my grandsons' will drag me out to see this film next April. I'm also pretty certain that when we leave the theatre after viewing it, the earth and all the important Avengers will be fine (watch out  fringe characters like Hawkeye / Jeremy Renner).

Personally I'm more interested in Birdman because I think it will be like nothing I've ever seen before and I don't know in advance how it will end.

 

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION Volume II (Article) - 10/21/2014 8:52:11 PM

I looked up the word cinephile in an online dictionary and it had a picture of Hanso's Cesar Romero / Joker avatar.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Movie CLIPs (Article) - 10/21/2014 4:48:15 PM

 I was wondering about the 31 Days of Halloween as well, but Robert Trate who was the author of that feature appears to be stretched to his limits, especially now that he's writing the weekly reviews for The Walking Dead and refereeing the ensuing squabbles in The Walking Dead comments section.  Look around the Mania website and you'll see that  Trate is responsible for about 90% of the content .  That must be a daunting task.

Ghost in the Shell offered to Scarlett Johansson (Article) - 10/18/2014 7:30:57 AM

Now they have to find actors that look like animated renderings?  Good luck with that.

Mania Review: Birdman (Article) - 10/17/2014 2:39:56 PM

aww...you're just mad at Eddie because he couldn't turn that lemon, The Hulk, into lemonade.  Believe me, no actor on the planet could have rescued that steaming pile of manure, not even the humble, self effacing Robert Downey Jr.

Warwick Davis Cast in Star Wars: Episode VII (Article) - 10/16/2014 10:04:20 PM

 Sanity...Enjoyed your comments. Unfortunately the Empire's gross incompetency continues in Star Wars Rebels.

Why is it that the people who make these genre movies think that fans can't stand an ounce of tension.

Star Wars, The Avengers, The Hobbit...the battles are always so pathetic.

Why does every fight between the good guys and bad guys have to be such a one sided romp.

Can't they make a conflict between good evil, closer to an even match once in while...keep us on the edge of our seats wondering if there's a chance that our heroes or heroines may be beaten.

I'm not saying they should kill off a Hero. I realize there are a lot of big sequels(and a helluva lot of money) to be made and the movie star playing the hero has signed on for several pictures..
