Glenn Hauman: On Kickstarter, their current situation, and what we’re doing

Glenn Hauman: On Kickstarter, their current situation, and what we’re doing

You may have heard that Kickstarter has had some internal strife recently, which has included some recent firings of various people who have been involved in efforts to unionize the workforce there. Those workers, and the union they have been working with, filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board accusing the crowdfunding company of wrongfully terminating them.

As a company, Kickstarter has been helpful to the comics and publishing ecosystem, helping thousands of projects find both funding and an audience, raising over $15 million for comics last year alone. We here at ComicMix have raised over $150,000 on Kickstarter for various projects, contributed to other campaigns both personally and corporately, and helped others raise more for their projects. And right now, I’m writing a short story for a campaign that ends in less than three days, Pangaea:

Clearly, they’re an important platform for comics. But, as Slate reported, there have been in-house problems— and it started with a comic.

REVIEW: Dark Phoenix

REVIEW: Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Arrives for Home Viewing in September

The Dark Phoenix storyline is revered by creators and fans alike, yet twice now it has failed to work as a feature film. The main reason is because a two-hour film isn’t long enough to deal with the cosmic forces in play or the corruption of Jean Grey. Remember, the story effectively began in X-Men #101 (1976) and concluded in issue #137 four years later.

Simon Kinberg’s script uses the space shuttle incident and Phoenix force to kick off the film, currently title Dark Phoenix, but the slow infusion of cosmic force and human psyche has little time to manifest. What the force is gets very little explanation, including why it was contained within a human form (Sophie Turner).

As she’s evolving, everyone else is going about their business with Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) beginning to wonder about their place on the team and at Charles Xavier’s school. Xavier (James McAvoy) is suddenly a lauded wunderkind and this incarnation begins to bask in the limelight, creating resentment.

Off to the side and woefully underdeveloped, the last remnants of the D’Bari race, led by a mysterious woman (Jessica Chastain), have come to Earth having trailed the cosmic entity. They have isolated Jean and are now off to obtain her or the force.

Jean’s powers have been heightened and then go off the rails and she can’t control it and rejects every helping hand offered her, until she discovers that Xavier tampered with her mind when they first met, making her think dad died in the car crash that also claimed her mother’s life. She goes to seek him out setting up Jean vs. the X-Men with Mystique paying the price.

Because the production can’t resist, she goes seeking help from Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who wants to help but she is quick to reject him, probably so she can be somewhat seduced by Chastain. All of which builds up to humanity hating the mutants (again), Xavier and Magneto joining forces to save the world, and Chastain inexplicably displaying more power than any other D’Bari for a less than satisfying climax.  

Kinberg has been living with these characters for a long time and was building up to this story. The cast has come to love him and convinced him it was time to direct. Apparently nobody was around to point out the story has multiple plot holes, some terrible storytelling logic, and uses the X-Men without really giving them much to do. Jean is badly served despite being the focal point of the story. I suspect if you took out all the alien invader nonsense, there would have been more time for a stronger story with a human element. Instead, what we have is a film that wastes the biggest cosmic story in the mutants’ history and ends the 20th Century Fox incarnation with a thud.

The movie is out now from 20th Century Home Entertainment in numerous formats, including a Blu-ray/Digital HD combo pack. The 1080p high definition transfer nicely captures the night shadows, the colorful cosmic special effects, and all the tones in between. The Dolby Atmos audio track nicely balances voice, Hans Zimmer score, and effects.

The film comes with the usual assortment of special features, all of which describe their love for one another and for the project. I wish I saw the film they thought they were making. We have an Audi commentary from Kinberg, who also narrates a series of deleted scenes, none of which are truly missed. There’s a 90 minute multi-part making of piece that is sliced and diced, making sure everyone gets their final moments in the sun. It’s nice to see Chris Claremont discuss his cameo and the story’s importance, although he totally skips over all the controversy inflicted by then-Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter, forcing him to make a hasty change to the ending.

As this comes out, rumors are already bubbling up as to what Marvel Studios has planned for the characters and it’ll be interesting to see how and when they’re integrated. The 20th Century Fox run had some brilliant casting, some strong writing, and more than a few misfires. It’s probably for the best the franchise takes a short rest before being resurrected for a (hopefully) eager audience.

REVIEW: The Dead Don’t Die

REVIEW: The Dead Don’t Die

The zombie fad appears to be in its final days given the trickle of new novels, movies, and television shows. Another sure sign of its impending end is the arrival of satire, this time in the form of The Dead Don’t Die, a atar-studded comedy that shambled on and off the screen before you noticed it.

The film, out on disc now from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, should have been a laugh riot, a brilliant takedown of the genre., At least, that was the expectation that came with the pedigree: Writer/Director Jim Jarmusch, Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Rosie Perez, Carol Kane, and yes, both Iggy Pop and Tom Waits.

Set in a small town in west Pennsylvania, clearly an homage to the godfather of zombie films George A. Romero, the film starts off well enough but by the midpoint, shifts from comedy to action/comedy and loses its footing, decayed bits falling off with a thud.

While local farmers begin noting oddities, we’re told that Earth has shifted its rotational axis resulting in the birth of zombies, out for living flesh to consume. The battle for survival sets the stage for hilarity to commence. We certainly chuckle here and there, but Jarmusch never fully commits to poking fun at the zuvembi, not like the Zuckers did with the airplane disaster genre, and we the audience are all the worse for it.

We’re treated instead to chuckles, the occasional guffaw, and then loses itself and never recovers, leaving you deeply disappointed and dismayed. There should have been a lot more social satire interwoven with the genre spoof, but everyone plays it cautiously.

The film is out in the usual formats including a fine Blu-ray and Digital HD combo. The 1080p high definition transfer works just fine although not perfectly, much like the film itself.  The same can be said for the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Together, they make for a satisfactory home viewing experience.

The assortment of special features proves, perhaps, more disappointing than the film itself, since they are all very short, avoiding any depth, analysis, or background for the curious. We have  Bill Murray: Zombie Hunting Action Star (1:21); Stick Together (2:47) where the cast praise their director; Behind the Scenes of The Dead Don’t Die: six-parts — Zombie Tai Chi (0:55), Growl Practice (0:18), A Spin Around the Set (0:32), Craft Services (1:00), Undead Symphony (2:16), and, Finger Food (0:22).

Hobbs & Shaw Race for Home in November

Hobbs & Shaw Race for Home in November

Universal City, California, September 10, 2019 – Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, available on Digital on October 15, 2019, as well as on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-rayTM, DVD and On Demand on November 5, 2019, amps up the high-stakes action and sharp-edged humor like never before, taking fans down an exhilarating new road. Unforgettable franchise favorites Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson; Skyscraper, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham; The Meg, Spy) forge an unlikely partnership that provides fresh insight into their backstories. Johnson and Statham’s “sheer movie star charisma” (Scott Mendelson, Forbes) take the action, spectacle, thrills and humor to a new level and have already earned the film more than $680 million at the global box office.
Hobbs & Shaw features over 80 minutes* of never-before-seen bonus content including an alternate opening, deleted and extended scenes and several featurettes with the filmmakers and cast that take fans further into the thrilling story. A hit with audiences, Hobbs & Shaw earned an “A-” CinemaScore and is “the most exciting movie of the year” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), with non-stop action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
For years, hulking lawman Luke Hobbs and lawless outcast Deckard Shaw have traded smack talk and body blows. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton Lorr (Idris Elba; Thor: Ragnarok, The Dark Tower) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever, Hobbs and Shaw must partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves. Joining the cast as Shaw’s sister Hattie, Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible-Fallout, The Crown) “is convincing as a woman who can take care of herself” (Rafer Guzman, Newsday). Directed by David Leitch from a story by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan and a screenplay by Morgan and Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Iron Man 3), Hobbs & Shaw is produced by Johnson, Statham, Morgan and Hiram Garcia (Skyscraper, Rampage).
