Charlize Theron: The Reigning Queen of Action

Multi-faceted actors that seamlessly transition between jaw-dropping action and tear-jerking drama are few and far between. These true talents are generational treasures that often cover every magazine, control whole summers with their blockbusters, and occasionally get notable Academy recognition as well. Among these screen legends of past and present one iconic actor from South Africa currently sits as both a wrecking ball in her action performances, and nearly unparalleled performer in her dramatic roles… Charlize Theron is often referred to

Modern Marvels in Multiple Roles

In the horror and sci-fi genres a great acting performance can really tip the scale of what makes the movie or series stand the test of time. As spoiled audiences, it isn’t enough anymore to just scare us with a terrifying CGI ghost or a knife-wielding killer; and because of this some of Hollywood’s best are now choosing stranger roles in darker cinema. The most talked-about performances, in any genre, are the roles of actors playing more than one character

Creative Comparison: Dwayne McDuffie & Donald Glover

Across the globe, the bell for societal change has been rung, and movements for racial equality are being heard in all corners of our everyday life. Predominately, the focus has been towards the changing of how Black Americans are treated by the police and the systematic oppressive system which keeps them crippled, but the fight against injustice is one that is incredibly multilayered. In the film community, creators and studios have stated that they are looking into reflecting a more

Ruby Rose is leaving Gotham City; Fan Casting a new Batwoman

Ruby Rose is no longer Batwoman… It was reported earlier today by various news sources (most notably Variety) that the 34-year-old actor will be stepping down from the lead role of the CW series Batwoman. This came as a shock, as season 2 of the show is still in motion to come in 2021, and now we’re all kind of left wondering who is going to be our new Kate Kane? As a big fan of the character from the

The Great Debate: what type of sci-fi movie aliens would be in that Pentagon footage?

The Pentagon has recently released three videos of UFOs, and the Internet has become momentarily distracted by the slight possibility of aliens flying in our skies. It’s good to have a bit of a break from our new norm, and currently this is one of my favourite conversation topics going around that doesn’t involve the Corona Virus, so any dialogue about it is great to hear. As the different news sites and experts discuss whether or not the videos are

The Fourth Wall Is Meant to Be Broken: From Deadpool to The Dead Don’t Die

Breaking the fourth wall is an interesting storytelling technique that first began in theater, and then later made its way to television and film. The term refers to when a character speaks directly to the audience, and are aware of the fictional nature of the medium they are in. It’s somewhat of a rarity in film and television due to the fact it takes the audience out of what they are watching, but occasionally it can been used creatively (and

Deep Sea to Deep Space: A look at Modern Monsters

The battle of man vs. monster has been prevalent in our stories and myths since the dawn of time, and the creativity of the human mind has always given us some excellent nightmare fuel from the very beginning. Modern horror and sci-fi filmmakers are always working to shock and scare us with their content, which means coming up with new monsters can be challenging when trying to get the attention of fans who have already seen so much in the

The 90 Day Horror Film Binge

Due to the pandemic, some medical experts are predicting that social distancing may be our new normal for at least the next two months or, even longer. Which could mean (among other things), that eventually we’ll run out of things to watch during our extended couch binges while we wait for the streaming services to give us a new hit series or movie. Not to worry though, if you’re a horror or science fiction fan looking for new or old

Stay inside and rewatch your favourite movie… for self-care reasons

What’s your all-time favourite movie? Your perfect 10/10 that never loses its luster no matter how many times you watch it. The one that you can argue about for hours because (in your opinion) it has zero bad moments, and while other movies may come close, they never quite touch that level of satisfaction in your heart. My personal choice is the 2007’s Edgar Wright directed classic film Hot Fuzz, which stars an amazing ensemble cast, but most importantly, UK’s
