The Tick vs. The Tick

Ben Edlund’s big blue hero has returned for a third outing onto the small screen, this time through Amazon Prime! You may have seen the pilot last year with Peter Serafinowicz donning the cerulean onesie and antennae, and now we have as far as episode six, certainly enough to start drawing comparisons between both the ’90s cartoon, but more importantly the 2001 short series with Patrick Warburton. 966 more words

Nightmare on Elm Street: The Original vs. The Reboot.

Two distinguished actors, one legendary clawed glove.

Given the fact that today marks the 30th anniversary of the original Nightmare on Elm Street film starring Robert Englund, A comparison review of the 1984 original directed by Wes Craven against Michael Bay’s 2010 reboot seems right.  1,467 more words

Giving a Damn About 'Damnation Alley'

DAMNATION ALLEY is one of those movies that was much, much better in concept than in execution. Released in theaters 40 years ago in October, the super-’70s flick had a cool title, a killer poster, a score by Jerry Goldsmith, a cast that included George Peppard, Jan-Michael Vincent, Paul Winfield, Jackie Earle Haley, and Dominique Sanda — and the ultimate post-apocalyptic survival vehicle: The Landmaster.It capitalized on cold-war fears that nuclear armageddon was right around the corner, and what we’d be left with would be a radioactive wasteland, plagued by bizarre weather patterns and populated by mutated insects and deadly scavengers.The film also had a gimmick: Like BATTLESTAR GALACTICA’s limited 1978 theatrical run that was released in “Sensurround,” DAMNATION ALLEY boasted a big-screen release bathed in “Sound 360” — basically full-range stereo speakers turned up to 11 to envelop the viewer and make the seats vibrate (a technique also used for the release of DAMIEN: OMEN II).Based on Roger Zelazny’s book of the same name, DAMNATION ALLEY had a formidable budget of $17 million and was directed by Jack Smight, coming off such notable films as MIDWAY, AIRPORT 1975, and THE ILLUSTRATED MAN. 482 more words
