Valerian is a complicated sci-fi cat. Like Besson's The Fifth Element, it relies heavily on style and quirk, but lacks complexity or depth in its two youthful characters.
The trailer for the heated story behind the creation and creator of the Wonder Woman character and comic has finally landed, and after the worldwide success of Warner Bros. Wonder Woman, it couldn't come at a better time.
The Leftovers and Lost writer Damon Lindelof is currently in talks for a television adaptation of Watchmen with HBO.
Guardians 2 is a clever and entertaining sci-fi / action romp with amazing pop culture references and wit, which towards the end, is almost completely ruined by ridiculous plot twists, poor leads, and layer upon layer of cheese. Thank god for Baby Groot.
A high school disaster film fuelled by wonderfully quirky performances (from big names) and psychedelic animation. My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea is as whimsical and original as its name. It's Daria meets Titanic.
Recently I was fortunate enough to sit down with Spanish illustrator Miki Montlló. Originally hailing from Terrassa, a small town outside of Barcelona, Miki was a guest judge and speaker at the RAW art wrestling illustration semi-finals in Prague last weekend, talking about his successful comic book series Warship Jolly Roger, his work with big shot animation studios like Cartoon Saloon and Laika, as well as his concept art for the new J.A. Bayona film, A Monster Calls, now showing in Czech cinemas.
