Thor: Rangnarok – Review

Don’t go into hibernation yet, all you Marvel movie maniacs! Face front, because for the first time we’ll take another trip into the multi-connected film universe begun way back in 2008 (can it really be a decade next May). Now, this past spring we took another joyride through the cosmos in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. Then, just a couple of months later, the web-slinger headlined his first solo (he did get some mentoring from Iron Man) outing (a team-up between Marvel Studios and Sony) in the entertaining Spider-man: Homecoming. So, is this new flick another big many-hero slugfest? Yes, a bit, as was with Captain America: Civil War, but just one hero’s name precedes the colon, the mighty Thor. He’s overdue since it’s been over four years since Thor: The Dark World. During that time he helped saved the Earth once more as a

2017 Remember Me Thursday Global Pet Adoption Awareness Campaign

This month, Helen Woodward Animal Center will once again unite with animal welfare proponents and organizations worldwide for the 5th Annual Remember Me Thursday.

Honored on the fourth Thursday of September, the campaign asks pet lovers and animal rescue groups to create an unstoppable, integrated voice advocating for homeless pets to live in forever homes, not die waiting for them. Grassroots candle-lighting ceremonies and a global avalanche of social media buzz will shine a light on the millions of animals still awaiting adoption and encourage communities to opt to adopt and reduce the millions of homeless pets euthanized each year. As in previous years, some very big names are stepping forward to lend their support to the cause, including Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress, Kristin Chenoweth, who has been named the 2017 Official Spokesperson for the campaign. Helen Woodward Animal Center encourages the world to join with these philanthropic celebrities and

The 17 Best Indie Movies of 2017 (So Far)

The 17 Best Indie Movies of 2017 (So Far)
Yes, we know: It’s a little premature to assemble a list of the best movies of the year when there’s so much left of it. We have yet to see a lot of exciting new work from major auteurs like Christopher Nolan (“Dunkirk”), Alexander Payne (“Downsizing”), and Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), not to mention heavy-hitting studio-produced spectacles like “Blade Runner 2049” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” But those last two wouldn’t even qualify for this list of the best independent films of the year, anyway, and they’ll have plenty of time to hog the spotlight.

Fortunately, we’ve found plenty of movies from around the world to celebrate, and while they haven’t all been box office sensations, they provide overwhelming evidence that the art form is thriving well into the second decade of the new millennium, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Black Lightning Static Shock Team-Up? Salim Akil Loves The Idea

This fall The CW may need to consider changing its name to the DC Super Hero Network or something similar with as many super hero shows as it has lined up. Starting with Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. If that weren't enough, soon they will also launch Black Lightning. As many of us have already seen, they have already released a promo image as well as a trailer for the show. This show as confirmed by the CW President Mark Pedowitz will not be part of the Arrowverse as they are not looking to make a 5 way crossover, not to mention that while the other shows are produced in Vancouver, Black Lightning is produced in Atlanta. But I think that they will be crossed over at some point. Supergirl wasn't supposed to cross over either but that quickly changed as well all remember. So for now with

Cars 3 – Review

As we creep along to the midway point of Summer, this can only mean one thing at the multiplex (aside from added matinees): another installment of a big studio franchise (formerly a series) will be occupying several screens. We’ve already had a new Alien, and another Depp pirate pic as the Planet Apes and Transformers wait in the wings, along with that wall-crawling wonder. I suppose we’re due for an animated sequel, but this one’s from the most celebrated studio of the last couple of decades, Pixar. Aside from Toy Story, they avoided follow-ups to their other hit films until 2011 when the Cars gang refueled for Cars 2. Then one of the other hits got a prequel, Monster University, and another spawned last year’s box office smash, Finding Dory. Now here’s the automotive, track-burnin’ “hat trick” as good ole’ number 95, Lightning McQueen roars back

Film Review: ‘Cars 3’

Film Review: ‘Cars 3’
Cars,” back in 2006, was the first Pixar movie that was far more beloved by audiences than critics. That meant something, since Pixar had long been a critical darling. The movie struck many reviewers as being less heady and artful, more insistently conventional, than the “Toy Story” films or “Finding Nemo.” And after it was followed up by the critically revered triple whammy of “Ratatouille,” “Wall-e,” and “Up,” “Cars” languished, in reputation, as a “lesser” Pixar movie. Yet it found a deep place in the hearts of kids (and in many adult kids too), and the critics, in my view, were always too down on its shiny and sentimental off-the-beaten-track-of-Americana appeal.

It was clear that the co-director of “Cars,” the founding Pixar guru John Lasseter, felt close to the film and even protective of it, so five years later, when he made “Cars 2,” you can sort of understand why he shot the works.

Another Round Of Shazam Rumors Point To Superman Cameo And A Story Inspired By Geoff Johns’ New 52

Though Dwayne Johnson’s Midas touch wasn’t enough to salvage Baywatch from the murky depths of mediocrity, the former WWE superstar continues to be one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood, and one glance at his IMDb page will tell you that Johnson has filled his slate all the way into the year 2020.

From Jungle Cruise to Rampage, San Andreas 2 to the as-yet-untitled ninth installment in Universal’s Fast and Furious saga, it’s a casting docket that mixes budding franchise-starters with blockbuster sequels. But the one Dwayne Johnson project that has undoubtedly sparked a sense of enthusiasm among DC fans is Black Adam.

The actor first signed on to play the hulking anti-hero three years ago and in those intervening years, he’s been busy raising awareness for Black Adam – heck, The Rock has even gone so far as to identify who he’d like to

Daniel Bryan hopes for 2018 wrestling return, big WWE return announced – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

In an interview with Inside The Ropes, seemingly recorded over Wrestlemania weekend, Kenny McIntosh asked Daniel Bryan when his contract is up with WWE – health depending – will he give management the ultimatum: either let me wrestle for you, or I’ll go and wrestle somewhere else.

“Yeah. I understand why they won’t let me wrestle. It’s a liability thing. It’s also they’re trying to protect me and that sort of thing. But there’s good reason to believe that I should be able to wrestle…so we’ll see in a year and a half what happens.”

A lot can change between now and when Bryan’s WWE contract expires next year, though. Things like, the birth of your baby daughter.

Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, Lea DeLaria And Lewis Hamilton Join Disney·Pixar’S Cars 3

Miss Fritter (voice of Lea DeLaria) loves the smash-and-crash life of demolition derby. A local legend at the Thunder Hollow Speedway, Fritter’s formidable school-bus size is intimidating, but it’s her smoke stacks of doom, razor-sharp stop sign and crazy collection of her victims’ license plates that usually steers her opponents in the other direction. ©2017 Disney•Pixar.

Disney•Pixar’s Cars 3 reveals key voice cast and characters, featuring award-winning stars. According to director Brian Fee, the roster includes both new and returning characters. “We’re introducing some fun and really appealing characters in ‘Cars 3,’” said Fee, “so we really wanted to find the right voices to help us breathe life into them.

Author: Zehra Phelan

On your marks, get set go!!!!!!!!! Back at the beginning of January, we reported that Disney Pixar where adding two new characters in the form of Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) and Cruiz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) to the next instalment of Cars.

It has now emerged that we have another three newcomers joining Lightning McQueen in the battle of his career and a return vocal performance from Three-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton who lent his voice to Cars 2 as himself.

WWE Nxt 10/12/16 Review – Sanity make their in-ring debut, Shinsuke Nakamura returns to knock out Samoa Joe

Shaun Eddleston reviews the October 12th edition of Nxt…

This week promised more action from the Dusty Rhodes Classic tournament, which started last week (read my review). We have the debut of the mysterious group “SAnitY”, whose video vignettes have been interrupting Nxt broadcasts since TakeOver Brooklyn II, facing off against the fan favourite team of Bobby Roode and Tye Dillinger – under the genius moniker “Glorious 10” – in a first round matchup. We were also promised more chaos from Samoa Joe in his quest for the Nxt championship, which has seen him absolutely destroy Nxt competitors over the last few weeks. Would Shinsuke Nakamura show up? or would William Regal have to relinquish the title and hand it over to Samoa Joe?

Sanity vs. Glorious 10

Bobby Roode and Tye Dillinger made separate entrances to tremendous fanfare to kick off this week’s show. Their opponents in the first round of The Dusty Rhodes Classic?

The big guns are on display in Space Hulk: Deathwing’s Arsenal trailer

Focus Home Interactive have released a new trailer for their upcoming first person shooter set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk: Deathwing. This latest trailer, titled ‘Arsenal’, showcases the big guns that your Space Marine Terminators will get to use throughout the game.

Adapted from the famous Games Workshop boardgame, Space Hulk: Deathwing puts players in the role of a Terminator of the Dark Angel’s ‘Deathwing’ First Company who have boarded a Space Hulk to take on the Genestealer menace.

Deathwing Terminators are equipped with the most prized armour a Space Marine chapter can possess and allows a Space Marine to carry some amazingly powerful weapons that would normally have to be mounted on vehicles with any other army. The trailer showcases many of these devastating weapons including the humble Storm Bolter, the flesh shredding Assault Cannon and the deadly Plasma Cannon. The trailer also showcases some of the

Jotun: Valhalla Edition Review

When it comes to Thunder Lotus’ Jotun: Valhalla Edition, the first game people will think of is Stoic’s The Banner Saga. Despite very different gameplay styles, the initial comparisons are obvious. Both games feature Norse mythology. Both use beautiful hand-drawn visuals. Both feature relatively long periods of quieter gameplay, followed by combat sequences. Also, both have been scored by composers with incredible amounts of talent.

But to tie the games together in this way would be unfair to both titles. As I say, the gameplay styles are very different. Jotun is a direct-controlled action affair where you play as Thora, a Viking woman who has suffered an inglorious death, meaning that she’s prevented from entering Valhalla. The great Odin offers up a second chance for the warrior though, tasking her with impressing the various gods by defeating them in combat. Do this, and Valhalla awaits.

Exclusive: Composer Bill Brown discusses working on Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six along with revealing two never released tracks

With the recent release of Tom Clancy’s The Division by Ubisoft and the news that Jake Gyllenhaal will produce and star in a movie based on the game we decided to speak with a person whom is very familiar with Tom Clancy’s work, composer Bill Brown. Brown began his career scoring Clancy’s Rainbow Six in 1998 and since then scored eight more Clancy games along with many other projects such as CSI: NY and Season 2 of Dominion. In this interview Bill discusses his time working on Clancy’s games along with releasing 2 never before heard demo tracks from Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Raven Shield was released in 2003. What differences in the game do you think there would be if it was released today, in 2016?

I’ve heard that politically / diplomatically they would have to handle it differently today. All of that is above my pay grade though.

13 More Interpromotional Dream Wrestling Matches We Must See

El Rey Network/WWE.com

Back in November, I wrote an article that looked at just how permeable the walls between the world’s biggest wrestling promotions had become. Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and New Japan legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger showed up to wrestle in Nxt. Alberto Del Rio, then the reigning Aaa Mega Champion, showed up on WWE television and pinned United States Champion John Cena.

You’d think that was the climax, but no.

On the heels of New Japan’s WrestleKingdom 10, another international shake-up occurred as WWE lured away four of that promotion’s top stars. Aj Styles has already made an impact in WWE, while Shinsuke Nakamura is Nxt-bound and a healthy fraction of the Bullet Club are waiting in the wings.

Simply put, the matches on this list aren’t mere fantasy anymore. The time-honored smark tradition of hypothetically matching up rivals from different promotions
