The Hatred (Blu-ray Review)

The HatredUnoriginality is the star of the show. “The Hatred” is a film with a hilariously insane premise but no idea where to go once the story is established. The prologue introduces us to Samuel Sears (Andrew Divoff), a former Nazi who escaped to the United States. With him is an amulet he stole from the French, which is apparently evil (of course) and feeds off fear and hate (of course). Through a series of events, he murders his daughter (of course) which results in his wife killing him (of course). Left in the house are evil spirits waiting for their next victim (OF COURSE!).

SDCC 2017: Justice League

Comic-Con 2017Jason Momoa came crashing down from the back of Hall H down the aisles, high-fiving fans along the way. People went absolutely crazy for this. When he finally got on stage, moderator Chris Hardwick said, “makes sense that you’re Aquaman, because everyone is super wet right now.” It was a funny and exciting way to begin a really great Justice League panel.

SDCC 2017: Blade Runner 2049

Comic-Con 2017The Hall H 180 screens continued today with Blade Runner 2049. After a run down of what happened with Deckard and what has happened to society since 2019 (I won’t spoil it), Jared Leto came onstage and began discussing the future and what Blade Runner means to him. After he was done, he disappeared, revealing that we had been watching a hologram the entire time. Pretty amazing.

SDCC 2017: Ready Player One

Comic-Con 2017You’ll need to watch this trailer a couple times to notice every detail. Chris Hardwick was on hand to introduce the Warner Bros. panel, beginning with Ready Player One. Prior to bringing Spielberg out on stage, there was a montage of Warner Bros. films from the past ten years, obviously ending with a huge emphasis on Wonder Woman, which received a standing ovation from the crowd. Wonder Woman is quickly becoming the new face of DC and Warner Bros. I would bet good money that they include her in every poster collage, video clip, books, etc for years to come.

Justice League banner shows some color, but someone is still missing…

Just ahead of the Justice League panel, Warner Bros. released a new poster for the film, and it is pretty amazing. Like most of you, I haven’t enjoyed the dull color palette of the DCCU films (with exception of Wonder Woman). This is making a statement, and it’s about to be shoved in all our faces. Forget the bleakness of old, and get ready for some optimism.

SDCC 2017: Star Trek Discovery Pop-up Exhibit!

Comic-Con 2017


The Star Trek Discovery Pop Up Display at San Diego Comicon was a major highlight of a long day of waiting in line and trying to navigate through the massive crowds. While it exciting to see all these costumes there are definitely some questions being raised while gliding through the exhibit. To balance the eyebrow raising costumes there were many tried and true, classic, props that give hope to a series that could be exactly what we are all waiting for. If anything, at least Harry Mudd will appear, looking great as ever.

In a surprise twist of fate, moderator Jimmi Simpson (“Westworld”) announced that his PSYCH character, Mary Lightly, will make a special appearance in the movie. Is he alive or is he dead? We’ve heard it both ways! Fans also got an exclusive first look at the all-new PSYCH: THE MOVIE, enjoyed a pineapple sing-a-long, and joined America’s favorite brofriends Shawn and Gus as they shared their journey back into PSYCH shape.

SDCC 2017: American Horror Story: CULT

Comic-Con 2017We’ve known for a while that the newest season of AHS would center around the presidential election, but until now, there’s been no word on a title. A series of videos at CC revealed both a new look and the title: “Cult.” Of course, there’s not much provided, but you can’t go wrong with a bunch of clowns in a circle.

SDCC 2017: Bright looks awesome

Comic-Con 2017Bright was the panel I was honestly most interested in. From the moment it was announced, I’ve been following the production. Anything with director David Ayer has my interest. He’s an absolutely insane director, and when he’s not being held back by studio restrictions, he always delivers something that’s compelling and worth discussing after. I still believe that if we would have seen his original vision of Suicide Squad, we’d be singing a different tune. Bright looks precisely like the film to get the naysayers back on the Ayer train.

SDCC 2017: Death Note

Comic-Con 2017I’m curious to see how fans react to Death Note, the Netflix adaptation of the popular manga coming out on August 25th. Director Adam Wingard stated that while the film is faithful, it is through his own unique vision. Surprisingly, it wasn’t approached as a straight horror film, which was apparent in the clip that was shown. There’s a lot of dark humor, spread on thick by Willem Dafoe’s portrayal of Ryuk.
