The East stars indie darling Brit Marling (Arbitrage, Another Earth) as Sarah, an operative for a private intelligence firm. The firm instructs her to infiltrate a group of eco-terrorists who target major corporations. She locates the group members, who live in an abandoned house in the woods, and she attempts to join them. Each cult member has their own reasons for turning into extremists, which includes Izzy (Ellen Page, Inception, Juno) and the group leader Benji (Alexander Skarsgard, True Blood).
Acclaimed, bestselling author Ned Vizzini (The Other Normals - read my review here) has returned to the world of YA fiction once again with House of Secrets, an exciting, new novel co-written by popular and talented Hollywood director and screenwriter Chris Columbus (The Goonies, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone). In a team up that rivals classic co-workers like Batman and Superman and Anakin and Obi-Wan, Columbus and Vizzini combine their skills as master storytellers, crafting a tale of high adventure that is exhilarating, laugh-out-loud funny, terrifying at times, and always captivating.
While the first issue of Myth could have been a cute, standalone story of its own, Issue #2 picks up shortly after the first, and we find a jealous Sam watching, from afar, as his fellow orphans get adopted into new families. Of course, none of this would have been possible had Sam and his new, mute, giant friend, whom he dubs Giant, had not broken into the orphanage and put a stop to the loathsome old lady who was running the joint.
Gabriel Ehmm died, and then he was given a mission from God (okay, Saint Peter) and sent back to Earth with a talking kitten named Mr. Whispers (also dead) to take out monsters and stuff, but Gabe and Whispers ran into an old Russian lady named Alyona who is about to clue Gabe into a much larger purpose.
Have you ever had a new neighbor move in, and your curiosity about this new individual cannot be squelched? This is the case for Aden, a fallen-from-grace reporter in the upcoming indie film Personal Demons. Aden may have just found the story of a lifetime in his new neighbor, Seth, an acquitted murderer who may not be so innocent. He sees in Seth something else: A released convict who may not be the innocent victim he's playing. When Aden's idle investigating stirs a cat-and-mouse game between the two men—it becomes a game that neither may survive.
If the concept of this film has piqued your interest, the filmmakers behind Personal Demons are looking for your help to fund the production of the film through Kickstarter. Creator Adam Cosco is attempting to raise $100,000 through Kickstarter prior to July 13th, and you can play a part in making this dream a reality.
The talented chefs at Garlic, My Soul teamed up with Fanboy Comics Creative Director Sam Rhodes to review a beer worthy of kings. You ale or you die . . .
Brewery Ommegang has teamed up with HBO to produce several limited edition Game of Thrones beers. AWESOME! The first one released is the Iron Throne Blonde Ale, and it’s a malty, golden beer, sunny enough to make a man of the Night Watch think he’s lounging in a wading pool down in Sunspear. The website describes the beer as “lightly malty, rounded out by honey malt sweetness.” Now, normally I don’t go for the malty beers, and I was a little hesitant at first. But, the more I drank, the more the other aspects of this beer opened up and merged with the maltiness to reveal a truly well balanced and bright beer worthy of a true king.
After Nancy Kerr's family is murdered and she is left dying after being raped, tortured, and stabbed, Nancy decides the only possible way she can deal with what's happened to her is to get revenge.
I want to make it clear up front that I have never been the victim of a crime the likes of which Nancy Kerr or millions of other women have been. I've been lucky in that regard, so my opinion on Hell to Pay's message is going to be different from someone who might “get” what Jenny Thomson was aiming for in her book.
Scott Snyder, DC’s white-hot writer of dark-and-brooding Batman and gothic-horror Swamp Thing, delivers a techno-horror tale of mystery and the unknown under the sea with The Wake.
