Avengers: Age of Ultron

Craig's Movie Report

Viewed – 29 September 2015 Online rental

With the never ending juggernaut that is Marvel Studios, it would be easy to say this cash-cow is getting milked dry. However with a plethora of comic book stories to mine from, those udders aren’t drying up any time soon. So we come to this sequel to the highly entertaining Marvel Avengers Assemble.

avengers

We are thrown straight into the action as our heroes attack a Russian Hydra base to steal back Loki’s sceptre (which you’ll recall him wielding during the last movie).  However little is explained as to what is going on or why, and so despite having seen all the other Marvel movies up to this, I still felt a bit in the dark. Now here’s the first issue – this is again a sequel that relies on you having a very good recollection of not just the last Avengers movie but also Thor:…

A Few Notes on Film Noir

Summerville Profs

Yesterday, I revisited an article I read in grad school, Paul Schrader’s short but phenomenal “Notes on Film Noir.” The article isn’t rigidly academic. It’s the best sort of analysis that ends up making you want to go back to the object of its study, in this case, the so-called “black film” of American cinema, ca. 1940-1960.

Schrader’s article provides all sorts of lists: the four major influences, the major stylistic flourishes, the major themes, and then noir’s four major periods. Schrader basically argues that unlike thematically defined genre pictures like the gangster movies of the 30s or the westerns of any decade, noir films were united primarily by their tone. This world-weariness was a sort of paradox. During the 1930s, Hollywood’s movies were almost relentlessly upbeat. Now, in the wake of WW II and the post-war boom, the movies got cynical and jaded in a hurry.

So…here’s a…

On This Date September Cults and Classics

Cult Crap and Classics

Well time has come to write this movie blog. Every month, and I slacked all the way to this point, but here it is. What a list we have. Probably the best list yet! And if you haven’t seen any of these yet please do, make a watch list and do work!

Eraserhead: September 28, 1977 Arguably the best cult movie of all time. And to some people it is not an argument, it is without question the best of all time. The third time was a charm for this to sit right with me. I felt it’s art and expression more so the first and second time and by the third time I just gave up trying to follow the plot, because it is almost impossible. Please don’t even try it is just such a subjective taste that it runs different for everyone. For that Fincher you are a…

A Comic That Accurately Sums Up Depression And Anxiety ~ UpWorthy

Live Your Life Inspired

Sarah Flanigan has been fighting depression since she was 10 years old and anxiety since she was 16. “I wish everyone knew that depression is not something that people can just ‘snap out of,'” she explains. “I mean, if I could ‘snap out of it,’ I would have by now.”

Depression and anxiety disorders are real illnesses. Mental illnesses are not “in someone’s head,” they’re not something a person can “just get over,” and they affect so many of us — over 40 million people in the U.S. alone.

Despite how common they are, it’s still really difficult to explain to people who may have never experienced a mental illness.

Enter: cute, clever illustrations that get the job done.

Nick Seluk, who creates the amazing comics at The Awkward Yeti, heard from reader Sarah Flanigan. She shared her story of depression and anxiety with him. If it could help…

And I’m Back

WGB, Home of AWESOME Reviews

DSCF3277

Evening folks,

Chances are you weren’t at all surprised to see nothing being posted to this site over the last week or so, after all I’m hardly the most consistent writer, opting to focus more on reviews and posting only the occasional bit of news and sometimes even an opinion piece.

But hey, there was actually a different reason I was quiet this week! Other than, y’know, swearing loudly at the computer screen while I hammer the keyboard in a very ape-like display, attempting to eek out a review. No, this week I was absent due to being lucky enough to get a press pass to Glasgow Comic-Con, an epic 2-day event that was an absolute blast to attend. Lots of cool stalls, lots of awesome people, lots of amazing costumes.

But I’m back now! Hurrah! Don’t look too excited or anything, yeesh.

The plan is to put up an…
