Bob Woodward’s tell-all book Fear, which documents the first year and a half of the current Presidential administration in the United States, has been selling like hot cakes. Unsurprisingly, the reply from President Trump has been that the novel is largely a work of fiction and ultimately, “fake news”. With his battle against the media reaching new heights, we thought this was a good time to … Continue reading Why HBO Should Bring Back ‘The Newsroom’ In 2019 – ScreenHub Entertainment
Spoilers for Avengers Infinity War, but if you haven’t seen it by now we figure you’re just not that interested.
Infinity War starts things off with a bang, with Thanos attacking, killing half of the Asgardian refugees and claiming the Space Stone for himself. Victims of this cleansing include Idris Elba’s Heimdall and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki. The deaths definitely set the stage for the rest of the film tonally, as it proved that no one will be safe this time around. But upon rewatching the movie at home, I began to wonder if there was more to Loki’s death than meets the eye.
CD Projekt Red has recently released 48 minutes of gameplay for their upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077. The footage, which was initially for behind closed doors purposes only, has taken the internet by storm with praise being heaped on the developers for their amazing vision as well as their transparency on the future of the game. The game boasts a massive open world full of futuristic … Continue reading An Introduction To Cyberpunk – ScreenHub Entertainment
Announced in 2012 with a reveal trailer shown in 2013, Cyberpunk 2077 has become something of an internet myth, largely due to how invisible the game and the developers have been on promoting content for the game to the public since then. The dystopian Blade Runner inspired game from The Witcher developers CD Projeckt Red has been shown to press twice in 2018, once at E3 and more recently, at Gamescon in August of 2018. Each time though, the public ended up getting denied access to that footage, which both infuriated fans and increased the hype around the game. Now, the Polish studio has pulled the veil back and has given us a 48-minute gameplay demo. The studio has stressed that this isn’t a reflection of the final game and that anything is subject to change, but we now have our first impressions of the game. Here are our thoughts on the game!
The future is digital. When it started, Netflix was the only competitive name in the international market for online streaming content, offering competitive prices and a wide variety of content. Needless to say, the playing field has changed since 2007. Now, audiences have a wide variety of services to chose from, including Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Go and the upcoming Disney Streaming Service, which will offer original Marvel content and the upcoming, $100 million Jon Favreau Star Was show. There are more top-tier options to chose from as well, including Sling, Playstation VUE and CBS streaming site All Access, which recently revealed Patrick Stuart’s return as Picard in an upcoming Star Trek show. YouTube has gotten into creating original content with Cobra Kai and Apple is looking to create original content by 2019 after investing $1 billion in the venture.
While the cost of streaming still is cheaper than regular cable for most, how long before those combined costs surpass the cost of cable?
When you say it out loud, The Meg sounds ridiculously dumb. The film is about a megalodon, a prehistoric shark that makes the Great White look like a goldfish coming back to haunt modern waters. The only thing in its way is Jason Statham and a group of marine biologists and engineers. And to be fair, the movie actually is pretty dumb. But it’s not as bad as I think we all thought it was going to be. Despite some horrendous writing, the movie actually turns out to a really fun/dumb movie and will be a treat for those who grew up on the monster and disaster films of the 90s.
There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Lord Voldemort, the chief antagonist to Harry Potter in the books and films, ranks among one of the best villains of all time. He keeps good company, generally sharing lists that have the likes of Darth Vader and the Joker on them. But while he is a great antagonist, he’s not per se the best character among the Potterverse’ villains. There is another and while he’s not as menacing as Lord Voldemort (yet), I do think Gellert Grindelwald may, in fact, be a better character than Tom Riddle ever was.
Usually, when a film franchise reaches its sixth film, we as audience members tend to roll our eyes and say it’s a lack of creativity, they’re milking it and that it won’t be that good. And while that may be true of most film franchises, the same cannot be said of Mission: Impossible, which just released its sixth film, Fallout, this past weekend. The series is known best these days for the seemingly psychotic stunts actor Tom Cruise pulls and Fallout brings that fact to the next level.
The big winner at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con was without a doubt Warner Bros, dishing out a ton of amazing trailers and news, including a sneak peek at Wonder Woman 1984, a surprise trailer for Shazam!, a look ahead at their TV programs including a look at the DC streaming service, and killer trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald; a contender for best trailer of the show in my opinion. But the clear audience winner was the trailer for Aquaman. At the time of the start of this writing, a day after the trailer debuted, it’s still the number one trending video on youtube. The film is due this December and has only just started its marketing campaign, causing a lot of hype and anticipation around the film. Now that the trailer has surfaced (sorry), let’s talk about it and why it was actually a bit of a letdown.
You may not know who Julian Glover is off hand but there’s a good chance you’ve seen something with him in it. The 83-year-old English actor has had an illustrious career, co-starring in such films as The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Troy, Dr. Who, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, co-starred as the villain in 007 For Your Eyes Only and most recently, was seen quite a bit in the smash hit HBO show, Game of Thrones. Talk about a portfolio. I got front row seats to hear the thespian talk about his craft, his experiences, influences and more at Montreal Comiccon.
