The Emoji Movie February 19, 2018

When a malfunctioning emoji by the name of Gene is threatened with deletion, he’ll venture off into the unknown in the hope of getting himself reprogrammed…in The Emoji Movie. THIS SPACE FOR SALE Directed and co-written by Tony Leonidas, the plain truth about The Emoji Movie is that it is one of the most cynical […]

Imagine Batman with Mouse Ears February 17, 2018

You know what’s weird to me, as a lifelong comicbook fan?   All things considered, DC’s superheroes are more in line with Disney than Marvel. Like Disney’s various works, they exist (and even manage to thrive) in this more idyllic, outdated bubble of storytelling and character work. Stories and conflicts are often distinct in their […]

Black Panther February 16, 2018

In the follow-up to Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther sees the return of Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa, the newly crowned king of the highly advanced–and equally isolated–African nation of Wakanda. But as T’Challa struggles with the loss of his father and his new role as a king, Michael B. Jordan’s Eric Killmonger is looking […]

Bright December 23, 2017

On this episode of The Nightly Chill, we look at Netflix Original blockbuster, Bright (directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis)! Bright is a strange movie in that it presents a great basic concept but has absolutely no interest in presenting any of its ideas or themes in a convincing manner. It’s a […]

Ruling the Marvel Cinematic Universe December 17, 2017

Now I’m just havin’ fun. Here’s another little stinger for another debut into the #Marvel Cinematic Universe. #Avengers4? #AvengersInfinityWar? EXT. HELL Like it says on the tin. Fire. Brimstone. And a large, demonic entity sits atop a throne of damned souls. It swallows the souls by the handful, like they’re candy. This Demon King doesn’t […]

Evolving the Marvel Cinematic Universe December 17, 2017

Lot of people throwing in their two-cents on the perfect stinger for Avengers 4. Here’s mine. EXT. PARADISE – DAY We fade in on a beautiful lake surrounded by wilderness, strange beautiful flora and fauna, small, large, and monstrous.

The Disaster Artist December 9, 2017

A young, struggling actor. A strange older man with a passion for performing matched only by the size of his bank account and the mystery that surrounds every other aspect of his life. And a weird, troubled, but ultimately touching friendship. These are the three key ingredients that resulted in one of the most beloved […]

And Scene. December 2, 2017

The following is a one-scene, two-person play reflecting our current political climate. Enjoy. INT. FBI HQ/OFFICE – DAY A tired, annoyed, overworked, and nearly broken AGENT sits at her desk. Her telephone RINGS. She sighs, rolls her eyes, and then answers it. AGENT Hello, this is Agent-- A VOICE speaks to her on the other […]

Justice League (2017) November 17, 2017

The Measure of a Man November 3, 2017

Ya know, Spider-Man will always be the superhero that I feel speaks the best to us as a people. The self-sacrificing hero, idealistic, flawed, guilt-ridden and self-doubting, but always ready and willing to fight the good fight.   Superman is a beautiful symbol, but a horrific failure as a character. He’s so perfect that he’s […]

Thor: Ragnarok November 3, 2017

On this episode of The Nightly Chill, we look at the most colorful, campiest Marvel movie to date, Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok! When they discover their long-lost sister is also the Goddess of Death, Thor and Loki will have to work together to save the Nine Realms from total destruction in Thor: Ragnarok. RISK AND […]

Murder Party October 28, 2017

When a man with nothing better to do accidentally comes across an invitation to a party on Halloween night, he assumes it to be little more than a typical costume party.

Pulse (aka Kairo) October 19, 2017

Pulse, from writer-director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, sees the dead rising to haunt and prey on the living. But this isn’t a case of the living dead. These aren’t ghouls literally rising from their grave. No, these are the spirits–the ghosts–of the deceased crossing over into the waking world. And the doorway from the other side? It’s […]
