I recently had a chance to spend a few moments with Andy Fickman, director of Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. Fickman has a long career of direction in the fields of film, television, and stage. His work includes The Game Plan and Race to Witch Mountain with The Rock, “Liv and Maddie” on The Disney Channel, and musical productions of Heathers and Reefer Madness!. Meet me after the jump to get to know him a bit better and learn more about Mall Cop 2.
Horror films are just as unpredictable to create as they are to watch. Audrey Cummings, director of Berkshire County, knows this. In her latest work and first feature-length picture, she presents all the ingredients necessary to the babysitter in peril story. However, even with so much aligned in her favour, the process to completion has been rigorous, demanding, and rewarding.
Black Mask Studios is putting out a lot of great work right now. Some of it maybe flying under the mainstream comic radar, but their titles are well worth tracking down. Last week, Ron McKenzie gave a stellar review for the studios Ballistic compilation, written by Adam Egypt Mortimer and illustrated by Darick Robertson. This week, we’ve got an interview with Matthew Rosenberg, writer of the series We Can Never Go Home, its second issue now currently available in shops and online. I was impressed with the first issue, and the second one carries on with the strong storytelling and excellent art. So check out my interview with Matthew and find out why you should really be reading We Can Never Go Home.

I was fortunate enough to watch a Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, 2014 Australian film called Predestination. This science fiction story is about time travel and it was written and directed by Spierig brothers, Michael and Peter. The film is based on a short story called “All You Zombies” written by Robert A. Heinlein and stars Ethan Hawke, as a Temporal Agent (time cop) on the search for a terrorist known as the Fizzle Bomber. Noah Taylor plays Mr. Robertson, the head of the Temporal Bureau and, the fabulous Sarah Snook plays a male writer named John. Using the pen name of “Unmarried Mother”, John is famous for writing confessional testimonials in a magazine. Sarah Snook gets to play two different versions of her character, starting out as female and ending up as a male. Sound confusing? Thanks to the wonderful acting of the two main stars, I was able to keep up to all the time jumps and gender switches. I was very excited to speak with Sarah Snook about her role in Predestination.
