  • Deadpool and the Anti-Hero

  • How Eco-Horror Movies Portray Energy Crisis, Pollution and Climate Change
    hand viewed its gigantic ants as an unintended side product of mankind s meddling who turned about and attacked the very forces who had created them The 1970s and 1980s brought increased awareness of the effects of pollution and toxic waste into the public eye and so environmental horror changed as well 1984 s C H U D served double duty as a warning against both toxic waste pollution and 1980s corporate greed that led to the dumping of the waste into the sewers In the 2000s water pollution became the pollution du jour to fear and films like 2012 s The Bay were caused not by toxic waste but by agricultural runoff Found footage eco horror movie The Bay With the advent of rapid global travel and high populations epidemics are another on screen threat that Hollywood has not shied away from 2002 s 28 Days Later and 2013 s World War Z couched their epidemic through the ever popular zombie metaphor while 2007 s I am Legend displayed its epidemic in more of a vampire variety 2012 s The Crazies combined a few issues with a polluted water supply infecting a town s population with a virus that sent its residents into a frenzy Climate change issues of today have been especially well represented lately in environmental horror This category is particularly topical given recent issues like the 2015 Paris Agreement With a global increase of 80 percent between 1970 and 2004 alone in carbon dioxide according to Direct Energy the situations proposed in the following films seem less and less outlandish 2004 s The Day After Tomorrow took a lot of flack for being an overblown special effects fest but as the general public has become more familiar with terms like superstorm it has begun to seem less far fetched than it did a decade ago 2006 s The Last Winter while featuring a ghost heavy plot also centered around the idea of destructive drilling practices being largely at fault The effects of climate change in disasterbuster The Day After Tomorrow Increasing temperatures are a major factor in the destruction at the heart of 2009 s 2012 though the temperature is of the Earth s core and not the atmosphere and oceans such as we are seeing today And in 2014 s Into the Storm shifting weather patterns due to atmospheric warming causes unprecedented tornado activity similar to activity that has been seen in recent months People are influenced by the media that they consume even something as seemingly diverting as horror movies With the combination of awareness of issues as plot points in environmental horror and visibility in the news the possibility of the public taking these issues seriously may become much more likely If it is real enough to fear onscreen it is real enough to fear in real life and real enough to do something about eco horror feature About the Author Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click here to cancel reply Name

  • 2016 Summer Blockbusters: Can They Top 2015?
    superhero films of 2016 should outperform Ant Man and Fantastic Four with relative ease X Men Apocalypse will look to build on the strong popularity of X Men First Class and X Men Days Of Future Past and will be aided by the addition of Oscar Isaac fresh off a tremendous performance in Star Wars as the titular villain Meanwhile DC and Warner Bros will be rolling out Suicide Squad a curious project based on comics about DC villains being spun into a special ops force But it s Captain America Civil War that should really push 2016 over the top In fact this film could even top Age Of Ultron to become the most popular Marvel film since The Avengers Why Well for one thing its direct predecessor Captain America The Winter Soldier was one of the best reviewed superhero films we ve seen But the film will also benefit from a specific focus on Iron Man and Captain America undoubtedly the two most iconic characters among the Avengers These are the most famous characters of the bunch and have also come to most clearly represent modern Marvel Five films have been made for them specifically they have the most recognisable costumes and they even have the strongest representation in gaming Known for inventive video poker and slot gaming themes Betfair s casino carries numerous superhero titles including all of the Avengers but it has several titles specifically devoted to Iron Man and Captain America They re quite simply the two most important superheroes out there right now and this film will see them square off one on one Animated Films This should come down to a pretty straight up battle and it s really difficult to predict a winner so to speak In 2015 Disney Pixar s Inside Out was something of a surprise hit and is now viewed as the studios best collaboration in years But 2016 will respond with a sequel to another of Disney Pixar s best projects Finding Dory will revisit the world of Finding Nemo in a project that ought to draw a pretty massive crowd In fact it was recently suggested by Forbes that Finding Dory could have a shot at winning the box office this year Action Films Naturally anything in the superhero category could fit here as well But for the purposes of comparing 2015 and 2016 summer releases it s interesting to note that each year will have included an addition to a major action franchise that doesn t operate within the superhero genre In 2015 it was Mission Impossible Rogue Nation the fifth installment in Tom Cruise s larger than life spy series that began back in 1996 The film earned just slightly less than its immediate predecessor Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol at the box office and according to Variety set Cruise up for yet another go as super spy Ethan Hunt Cruise always draws a crowd and this series has always had a certain brand of cleverness

  • The Star Wars Saga: The Franchise From Top to Bottom
    saga Luke and Anakin both undergo major changes throughout the course of the film Unlike most movies in the franchise Jedi ends on a positive note commemorating the end of the original film trilogy 4 Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith 2005 Despite being the best film in the more recent Star Wars trilogy Revenge of the Sith fails to achieve the greatness of the original film trifecta The film traces Anakin s fall from grace and his defection to the Dark Side The film s major weaknesses lie in its awkward stilted dialogue and mediocre plot line The addition of General Grievous and the unrealistic relationship between Anakin and Padme drag the film down Though Sith has its weaknesses its spectacular battle sequences and special effects still make it a film worth watching 5 Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones 2002 Attack of the Clones is among the weakest of the Star Wars films The film follows Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker as they investigate an assassination attempt on Senator Padme Amidala The ten year jump between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones coupled with Hayden Christensen s moody characterization of Anakin Skywalker make the film hard to watch Jumbled dialogue and limited character development plague this film as well Despite its weaknesses the Coruscant chase scene and the visually stunning depiction of the Battle of Geonosis rank amongst the most memorable scenes in the Star Wars saga 6 Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace 1999 The Phantom Menace is by far the most painful Star Wars film to sit through From the dreaded appearance of Jar Jar Binks to the mediocre acting of Jake Lloyd as young Anakin Skywalker the first film of the second trilogy suffers from a number of fundamental issues Arguably the worst part of The Phantom Menace however is the film s dreadful plot The film details the problems associated with trade agreements and political disputes By replacing passion and warfare with tedious dialogue and negotiations Menace loses the spark that made other Star Wars films so great The film s fantastic final duel is one of the only saving graces of Star Wars Episode I The Force Awakens the Future of Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens will introduce a new set of enemies led by the nefarious Kylo Ren Adam Driver a new and mysterious Force wielding villain In addition to new characters The Force Awakens will feature revamped interstellar factions and previously undiscovered worlds Since Disney s purchase of Lucasfilm in 2012 the Star Wars franchise has seen many spin offs and reincarnations New animated programs such as Star Wars Rebels and mini series like Lego Star Wars Droid Tales can now be caught on cable TV more info In addition to new episodes in the Star Wars saga a separate film series known as Star Wars Anthology is in the works with the first film Rogue One scheduled for a December
