5-things-the-walking-deadThe Walking Dead is the most popular show on cable TV, with ratings that continue to skyrocket.

Woodbury is a Real Place
The prison where Rick and the rest of the survivors was really an elaborate set built on the lot of Raleigh Studios, the home of The Walking Dead in Senoia, GA. But Woodbury is a real place, it’s just not called Woodbury. The picturesque downtown of Senoia, GA was transformed into Woodbury during Season 3 of The Walking Dead. The Woodbury…

Proving that movie studios are going to keep churning out as many comic properties as they can buy Warner Bros studio announced recently that it has no less than 10 films on the schedule based on DC comic superheroes. Some of those films will be crossovers and will feature several heroes from within the DC universe. Others will be based solely on one superhero figure although some of the other DC characters will probably end up making cameo appearances. The films are staggered, with some of them not appearing for another six years, but Warner Bros wanted to let fans know that their favorite comic superheroes will be making their way to the big screen eventually. Well some of them will. Notoriously absent from the superheroes who got their own films are fan favorites like Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. A Sandman movie is in production, but is going to be released…

zombiielandFans of the original Zombieland cult classic film have been waiting anxiously for news about a sequel. So far news has been hard to get because the project has been stalled out. But recently it seems that Zombieland 2 got a push forward when it was confirmed that Sony Pictures has hired Dave Callaham to write the sequel, Zombieland 2. Callaham wrote The Expendables script and has worked on other dark scripts in the past so he is a good choice to write the sequel. Unfortunately there is no director assigned to the project yet and the stars of the film have been silent on what role if any they want in the sequel. Since the original film several of the stars have gone on to quite successful careers and they might not want to revisit their Zombieland past. Only time will tell at this point.

stay-puftPeople have been fascinated with magical creatures and the supernatural for a very long time. If you look at the most popular stories of mankind, you will realize that most of them are based on fantasy creatures that live side by side with us, humans.

There are some TV shows and movies out there that have really brought out everyone’s fascination with these mythical creatures and characters. Supernatural (featuring Dean and Sam Winchester, two brothers who hunt these creatures), Grimm (featuring a descendent of the Grimm brothers and many fantasy characters) and Ghostbusters (featuring a team of people dealing particularly with ghost hunting) are among these TV Shows/movies

Ghostbusters is probably the oldest one out of all the 3 mentioned above. The first movie was released in 1984 and ever since then, it has managed to somehow make everyone out there be fascinated with it from multiple points of view.…

horse-maskHave you seen photos on social media that feature people artfully posed wearing animal masks? These photos are usually heavily filtered and presented as art rather than traditional photographs. They are everywhere on sites like Facebook and Instagram and the trend is not showing any sign of slowing down. These photos can be funny, disturbing, creepy or intriguing but they are rarely boring. People who love to take photos are exploring trends like this as a way to present their work and get their photographs noticed. Social media is so choked with photographs every day that it’s easy for photos to get lost in the endless parade of selfies and photos of meals. Animal mask photos stand out and make people stop and look, and they’ve been around for longer than you might realize.

As far as anyone can tell the trend of taking artful photos while wearing animal head…

comicconFan conventions used to be only something that fans of science fiction and comics attended. Since those things were considered to be nerdy, and nerdy was not something that was socially acceptable to be, those conventions were generally not too well attended or popular. But the San Diego Comic Con changed that. Commonly just called Comic Con or SDCC this convention made it socially acceptable to go to conventions.

Now fans of action, science fiction and horror films, TV shows, comics, and video games regularly attend cons. Major movie studios and TV studios regularly debut trailers and other marketing materials at cons. Some studios even develop special companion comics to a large scale release specifically to build interest about a movie at a con before the movie actually premiers. Studios host panels at SDCC where the stars, writers and producers of movies and TV shows talk about their work. And…

gotlogoIt is close to impossible not to have heard (at least!) about the great HBO TV show Game of Thrones. This fantasy-like show has caught millions of people around the world and every season is eagerly awaited by them. Every single episode makes you stick to your chair in awe and amazement and every single end of the season leaves you thirsty for more. Once you watch the first couple of episodes in this show, you are bound to get addicted to it.

got2Crimes, sex, love, hatred – you name it and you’ve got it all. Sometimes bloody, sometimes downright erotic and other times simply sweet, this show is meant for a lot of types of viewers and regardless of whether you like war-themed movies or fantasy movies, you will most likely love Game of Thrones.

The secret lies in perfect writing and in impeccable acting as well. The plots are always surprising and it is really difficult to predict what will happen next. The characters are extremely well built and they will win your heart (or your hatred) in an instant. Even more, you will end up loving some of them one second and then hating them the next because none of them are just “good” or just “bad”.

As for the acting, each and every actor in the show makes a great job at bringing to life its character. There is something extremely realistic about portraying a world that is mere fantasy and where dragons, walking dead people and witchcraft are daily thing all characters deal with. read more

confirmedwhoghostbustersDan Aykroyd confirms Ghostbusters 3 goes into pre-production in Spring 

Among all the movies with a supernatural theme out there, Ghostbusters definitely plays an important role. While the main theme may not be original (it was certainly not the very first ghost story put on the big screen out there), the characters, the plot and the production of the movies have gained it a huge fan “database” that is eagerly awaiting for a new movie to come out (even if it has been several years since the last one was released).

Ghostbusters – The Original Story

The first movie featured Aykroyd (one of the scriptwriters), Bill Murray and Harlod Ramis (the other one of the scriptwriters) as parapsychologists living in New York who want to start a business focused on catching ghosts. At first, everyone is naturally skeptical to the idea of such a business, but the boys soon gain…

the shiningThe Shining remains a Halloween tradition.  When Stanley Kubrick started a film adaptation of Stephen King’s novel The Shining he didn’t set out to make a masterpiece. He was coming off of the release of a film that wasn’t a very big success commercially and he wanted to make a commercially appealing film that would generate some box office cash and hopefully get a little critical acclaim. But the primary motivation was commercial success. Thanks to his relentless attention to detail and his ability to use suspense and other elements he ended up creating one of the scariest films of all time. The film was released 1980 but is still culturally relevant today. References to scenes within the film are everywhere in popular culture. References to “Redrum” and other plot devices are almost universally recognized.

Even though the film is an adaptation of the novel there are some large differences…
