Characters "Halloween" 2018 Deletes from Franchise History

2018's "Halloween" is a brutal, gory, and supsenseful follow-up to John Carpenter's original 1978 thriller. It completely ignores the continuity established in the franchise's previous seven entries featuring Michael Myers. While I welcome a new take on what happened after the Night He Came Home, there's one thing I really miss. I feel like Michael being Laurie Strode's brother added an additional depth and motivation to the storyline that really served a purpose to the old canon. That connection is missing from the new Halloween. It's not the only thing missing, though.

January will bring issue #6 of the crossover comic Archie Meets Batman '66 and it sounds like things are going to get crazy in Riverdale. Honestly, I can't think of a more fitting mashup than the campy Caped Crusaders and the cool crew of Archie. can the team-up save Riverdale and the world from certain doom, though?

Superman: The Theatrical Serials Collection Back in Print

Before Henry Cavill, Christopher Reeve, or George Reeves, there was another Man of Steel. His name was Kirk Alyn and he starred in the two first ever live-action movie serials featuring Superman. It was released in theaters a mere 11 or 12 years after the superhero premiered in the pages of Action Comics in 1936. After being out of print for a while, Warner Archive is bringing Superman: The Theatrical Serials Collection back for those who weren't lucky enough to get it the first time or are new to the party.

Live-Action Aladdin Trailer Takes You to a Whole New World

Well, that was rather... anti-clamactic. Don't expect too much going into this trailer for Guy Ritchie's upcoming live-action debut of Aladdin and you won't be disappointed. I'm still trying to digest the fact that the guy who makes the Sherlock Holmes movies and other such films as Snatch, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and King Arthur is helming a Disney movie of this importance.

Check out the trailer and poster for the live-action Aladdin after the jump.

Scream Factory Brings Urban Legends to Special Edition Blu-ray

Scream Factory continues their reign of terror over horror fans with the release of Urban Legend Collector's Edition and Urban Legends: Final Cut in new Blu-ray versions that boast some great new bonus material. I've always been a big fan of Urban Legend, which boasts several actors who were up-and-coming when the movie came out. Urban Legends: Final Cut wasn't quite as thrilling as its predecessor on first viewing, but improved with multiple watchings. I do find it interesting that Scream Factory didn't release Urban Legends: Bloody Mary, which is the third entry in the franchise and more entertaining than the second in my humble opinion.

Check out the press release, Blu-ray covers, and trailers for both Urban Legend Collector's Edition and Urban Legends: Final Cut after the jump. 

Home Entertainment Review: "Ant-Man and the Wasp"

Filled with good chemistry and lots of fun action and humor, "Ant-Man and the Wasp" still falls short of capturing the magic of the first film. The main problems with the film are its messy structure and disjointedness and rather weak villains. While Ghost has some pretty cool superpowers and is a sympathetic character, both her and Walter Goggins' arms dealer just don't quite have the same impact as Thanos, Hela, or any other Marvel nemesis. Michael Pena's humorous and charming character and some great special effects definitely help make this a worthy watch in the end, though.

Voltron Legendary Defender Final Season Teaser Trailer is Here

I'm a bit late here on getting this posted. However, my son would never forgive me if I didn't post the teaser trailer for one of his favorite shows, Voltron Legendary Defender. When I see it, all I can think of is I'd rather be watching Gatchaman / Battle of the Planets.

Check out the trailer and press release for the final season of Voltron Legendary Defender after the jump.

Movie Review: Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

Whether you have ever read one or not, everyone knows of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books. With over a 100 books in the series it was only a matter of time that it jumped off the page and it did just that in the 90s with the popular TV series of the same name. The franchise took an even bigger step in 2015 with the big screen feature of the same name starring Jack Black. Now the next chapter is here with the Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween starring Ken Jeong, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Chris Parnell, Madison Iseman, Ben O’Brien, Caleel Harris, and Jeremy Ray Taylor, but does it offer up the same fun as the original or is it not a book worth reading?
