Oz the Great and Powerful – Movie Review

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on March - 15 - 2013

When a source of entertainment has reached the level of influence, regard, and recognition as 1939’s The Wizard of Oz, it’s hard to match, let alone top. While not initially successful upon release, over time The Wizard of Oz has become a legend; a film regarded as being so masterful and perfect that the idea of its legacy being tainted by the touch of another seems abominable. Memories of being whisked off to the magical Land of Oz are a defining moment in many childhoods, and a tradition that has been passed on from parent to child for decades. The songs, sets, characters, and Technicolor magnificence evoke strong emotional reactions in millions of people, to the point where the film’s quality is elevated far above what is actually achievable.

Mysterious Cloaked Figure in Walking Dead Finale

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on March - 19 - 2012

In tonight’s (March 18th) Season 2 finale of The Walking Dead, viewers caught a glimpse of a mysterious, cloaked figure who saved Andrea from certain doom.

The hooded, katana-wielding savior who was walking two armless zombies on chains could only be one person: Michonne.

Michonne is one of the most popular characters from The Walking Dead comic books, and fans — as well as co-executive producer Gale Anne Hurd — have been trying to implement her into the show since its inception.

Actress Danai Gurira (Treme/The Visitor) has been cast in the role of Michonne for the TV series.

Ghostbusters 3: Aykroyd Relentlessly Pursuing Disaster

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on February - 18 - 2012

Ghostbusters taught us that when asked if you are a god, you say, “yes!” Bill Murray has taught us that when asked if you want to make Ghostbusters 3, you say “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts.”

At least, that is the story that has been circulating. The National Enquirer recently reported that Bill Murray had attached a note with the aforementioned quote to a copy of the latest GB3 script rewrite, and then mailed it back to Dan Aykroyd, shredded into confetti.

Keaton And Burton On Board For Beetlejuice Sequel

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on February - 14 - 2012

Seth Graeme-Smith, the writer responsible for The New York Times best-selling novels Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, as well as The Spider-Man Handbook: The Ultimate Training Manual, is working closely with Tim Burton and Warner Bros. on a follow-up to the 1988 cult classic Beetlejuice.

Burton is already producing the film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that Burton will want to continue to work around Graeme-Smith –- because when Burton likes someone, he will use them to fucking death.

Captain Planet Live Action Movie Rumor

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on February - 10 - 2012

Hollywood is in denial. They are fully convinced that they should remake everything at least once, even though it rarely works out. I can understand the financial motivations of wanting to revisit some successful franchises, capitalizing on the nostalgia factor. Hollywood knows that if they remake something like Transformers, even if the movies are abysmally awful – which they are – that people will still flock to see them for the sake of sentimentality.

Apparently the same producer behind the Transformers reboot, Don Murphy, is rumored to be working on a live action version of Captain Planet. Yeah, that’s right – Captain fucking Planet, that glaring genital wart attached to after school programming in the early 90′s.
