Spoiler alert! The latest and greatest Biff Bam Popcast is up. In this edition, Glenn Walker, JP Fallavollita, Emily McGuiness, Jason Shayer and Andy Burns talk Star Trek Into Darkness, what we liked (lots), what we didn’t (more than we thought) and much more.
As well, we take a look at the gorgeous new IDW hardcover, Star Trek: The John Byrne Collection. As mentioned in the popcast, IDW continue to knock it out of the park with their licensed properties and this book is no exception. Take a look inside during the popcast and then order your own copy here.
I always love it when a film sneaks up on you. I think I’ve said that before and it remains the case with a small movie called Deadfall. You likely havent heard of it, as it had a minimal release before making it’s way onto Blu-Ray/DVD a few weeks back. However, with a solid cast and an intriguing story that kept the Queen and I guessing all the way through it, Deadfall is a film that definitely deserves a wider audience.

Of all the films I’ve talked about with friends over the last few years, I don’t think that there’s one that has split people more than G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra. Some folks absolutely enjoyed the flick, which introduced us to a team that featured Snake-Eyes, Duke, Scarlett, General Hawk and others doing battle against The Baroness, Storm Shadow and the men who would eventually become Destro and Cobra Commander. Then there were others who hated the plot, the acting and the fact that Cobra doesn’t become Cobra until the end of the film.
I rewatched Rise Of Cobra last week and while, to my mind it’s not a particularly good film, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I remembered it. That being said, its sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is hugely superior in every regard.

What’s with our obsession with celebrity? The whole TMZ, Perez, gossip sites that so many of us venture to regularly to get our fix – why do we do it? Is it the glamour? I suppose. Maybe we all have a little voyeur in us? Could be. Or maybe we just like watch a train wreck.
In his new film Collaborator, actor/director Martin Donovan shines a subtle light on the power of celebrity and how it can save and ruin lives. Check out the trailer and then read our review after the jump!
You probably haven’t heard about Girls Against Boys, an under the radar vengeance flick directed by Austin Chick and staring Danielle Panabaker and Nicole LaLiberte as two young women out to even the score against some very bad men. The film had a very limited release and is out on DVD/Blu-Ray/VOD today.
Do not miss it. Stop reading, go and order this asap and watch it. Or check out the trailer below and then read a glowing review.
Here’s a little insight into my brain. I don’t like writing negative reviews. There are ways to be clever about doing them, of course, where you can spill massive amounts of vitriol at a band or a film or a book. There’s even some art to it. But often it feels like a waste of time to put effort into something that is based on negativity.
But sometimes I can’t help myself.
Twenty-seven minutes of my life. That’ what I lost trying to watch Silent Hill: Revelation.
You’ll only have to lose two watching the trailer. It’s pretty decent. Check it out and the read what little I can say about this film after the jump.
What happens when a beloved yet underground comic book character hits the big screen via creators and stars who seem to have zero clue what makes said character tick.
Now, let me be clear – back in 1995 I actually enjoyed Sylvester Stallone’s Judge Dredd. I thought it was vastly superior to Batman Forever, which brought in all the money that summer. Though it featured a helmet-less Dredd for the majority of the film, something that never happens in the comic, and a ridiculous buddy role for Rob Schneider, the movie was still a lot of fun. Of course, fun doesn’t always translate to money, and Judge Dredd was a box office bomb. Just like 2012′s take on the character, simply titled Dredd.
That’s where the similarities end, mind you. The big difference between the two is quality – which this latest version has in spades. Check out the trailer and then read my take on the flick after the jump.
Who would have thought the kid from 3rd Rock From The Sun (and a few episodes of Roseanne) would become one of the best actors in the 2010′s. Not only that, but I’d consider 2012 a huge breakout year for JGL, who stared in a series of strong films, all of which deserve your eyeballs. In the case of The Dark Knight Rises, you probably did catch him, but you may have missed Looper and Premium Rush. So this Saturday At The Movies, consider this a three for all with a heavy slant on our new favourite actor.
