Jason Mewes goes behind the camera for Madness in the Method

Jason Mewes goes behind the camera for Madness in the Method

LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK // July 12, 2019 – Cinedigm has announced it will release Jason Mewes’ meta comedy MADNESS IN THE METHOD in select theaters and on demand beginning August 2, 2019, with a DVD and Blu-ray™ release planned for fall. Fans attending San Diego Comic Con can get a sneak peek at the film on July 18 at the TCL Chinese Theatre at Theatre Box, with Jason Mewes in attendance for a Q&A.

Produced by Autumnwood Media and written by Chris Anastasi and Dominic Burns, the film stars Mewes (Mallrats), Vinnie Jones (Snatch), Gina Carano (Haywire), Jaime Camil (Jane the Virgin), Kevin Smith (Clerks), Danny Trejo (Machete), Stan Lee (in his last onscreen role), Teri Hatcher (Tomorrow Never Dies), Brian O’Halloran (Mallrats), and Dean Cain (God’s Not Dead).
In the film, Mewes, tired of Hollywood’s perception of him, embarks on a quest to reinvent himself as a serious actor. Upon advice from best friend Kevin Smith, Mewes tracks down a highly secretive method-acting book – with disastrous consequences. Joining the star-studded ensemble are David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man), Mickey Gooch, Jr. (How to Be Single), Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club).

Best known as the vocal half of the on-screen comedic duo, Jay and Silent Bob, Mewes has reprised his role as the celebrated character, “Jay,” in a number of films. With cult-fans following his controversial antics, Mewes has captured audiences with rebellious banter against his unspoken other half and longtime friend, Kevin Smith (Silent Bob). Since the beginning of the duo’s offbeat work together, Mewes and Smith have continued to build on their beloved character driven roles from the Jay and Silent Bob series. Most recently, the duo wrapped Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which is scheduled for release later this year.

Trails of Bone, 2nd Relicant Chronicles book, now out

Trails of Bone, 2nd Relicant Chronicles book, now out

This past week the second volume of The Relicant Chronicles, Trails of Bone, was released. Written by best-selling author Aaron Rosenberg, it continues the disparate adventures of a warrior, a monk, a thief, a killer, a soldier, and a ruler, each trying to make their way through a world once rich with magic but now severely diminished.

The first volume, Bones of Empire, was released in December by Falstaff Books in print and digital and Tantor Media in audio. It received sterling reviews. Rosenberg describes the series as “Anime-esque epic fantasy,” or a cross between Game of Thrones and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. In this world, characters absorb knowledge and memories from the bones of the dead, which is a brilliantly twisted way to gain power.

Bones introduced readers to two young brothers who set out on a journey with little money and only a few of the relic bones called aishone, seeking to make their way in a world. Things become tumultuous and the brothers’ fates are changed forever when they are forced to make a dangerous deal that could lead to their success—or their deaths. Meanwhile the emperor has struggles of his own, as do a young graverobber and a remorseless killer, all of them striving to make sense of their world. Their journeys are not only exciting but loosely connected, and readers will find themselves on the edge of their seats waiting to read the outcome.

One reviewer said of it, “The rich, fun, (slightly dark) world that Aaron Rosenberg writes is a delight to travel to and visit.” Another called it [a] fascinating story of a decaying empire, a looming war, and the people caught up in the middle.

The second volume is also available in print and digital from Falstaff and audio from Tantor. The back cover copy reads: “Amid all this chaos an emperor learns about his subjects firsthand, a warrior battles both foes and ancient tradition, a young man tests recently acquired prowess while another learns to rely on himself, a young graverobber struggles to overcome new scruples even as a different young woman with no scruples begins to amass power, a strange pair wreak havoc, and a mysterious new threat approaches the capital.” The book delivers all this and more, giving readers a window into a world thrown into chaos and war, and into the lives of its people and into the magic at the heart of everything.

“In Bones I got to present all the main characters and set them on their respective paths,” Rosenberg explained. “In Trails we get to see each of them starting to come into their own, but also we’re seeing some of them start to intersect. Those connections are only going to increase as the series continues.” The Relicant Chronicles is a five-book series, with the next book releasing at the end of 2019.

Rosenberg is a prolific author across multiple genres and audiences. A founding member of Crazy 8 Press, he is perhaps best known for his game-design work, his tie-in novels, and his snarky character DuckBob, star of the four-book SF comedy series The Adventures of DuckBob Spinowitz.

James Gunn’s Brightburn set for Digital Release in August


What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.


  • 3 “Quick Burns” Vignettes hosted by Actor Elizabeth Banks, Producer James Gunn & Director David Yarovesky
  • “Hero-Horror!” featurette: It’s not often filmmakers successfully and seamlessly combine both Horror and Superhero into a genre-bending “Hero-Horror” category. Hear from Producer James Gunn and Screenwriters Brian and Mark Gunn as we will learn the methods of their filmmaking style and their dotting of the “i”’s and slashing of the “t”’s storytelling process.
  • “Nature vs. Nurture” featurette: Hear from Actor Jackson A. Dunn, Producer James Gunn, Screenwriters Brian and Mark Gunn and understand the creative process involved in flipping the script of the traditional “Superhero” and diving into what motivates and moves our new Anti-hero, Brandon Breyer.
  • Filmmaker Commentary with Director David Yarovesky, DP Michael Dallatorre, and Costume Designer Autumn Steed


Director: David Yarovesky
Executive Producers: Brian Gunn, Mark Gunn, Simon Hatt, Dan Clifton, Nic Crawley, Kent Huang
Producers: James Gunn, Kenneth Huang
Screenplay By: Brian Gunn & Mark Gunn
Cast: Elizabeth Banks (Hunger Games franchise), David Denman (The Office), Jackson A. Dunn (Avengers: Endgame), Matt Jones (Mom) and Meredith Hagner (Younger)

REVIEW: Pet Sematary

Stephen King was on a roll when Pet Sematary came out in 1983, with each horror novel seemingly creepier than the last. After all, everyone loves a loyal pet, and many families can recount how they commemorated an animal/fish/bird’s life at death. Turn that domestic normality on its head and you can terrify most everyone. King admitted this was perhaps his most disturbing work, the one where he may have gone too far (which is saying a lot).

The 1989 film adaptation starred Fred Gwynne, Dale Midkiff, and Denise Crosby and did a fairly good job capturing the spirit of the novel. It performed well enough that it spawned a best-forgotten sequel.

And as with all things, it was been remade this spring and is out now on disc from Paramount Home Entertainment.  

The premise remains the same: the Creeds have moved into a rural home near the local Pet Sematary. No sooner do they settle in than their cat is killed and therefore becomes the latest resident of the graveyard but then things get weird.

Adapted by horror film writer Matt Greenberg, it was polished by Jeff Buhler (David Kajganich went uncredited) and then directed by the duo of Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the movie performed well at the box office but I, like so many others, question “was this a necessary remake?”

The cast of Jason Clarke, John Lithgow, Amy Seimetz, Jeté Laurence, Maria Herrera, and Sonia Maria Chirila are all good in their roles but the entire production has been a read this, seen that already feel and despite trying to explore some new aspects of the town and sematary, it just never rises to the feeling of freshness. The first film did a more faithful job adapting the novel and here they try to go deeper into the mythology of the land but isn’t enough. The more gruesome visuals and thrills also fail to overcome the ho-humness of it.

The film was released in the usual assortment of formats including the $K Ultra HD/Blu-ray/Digital HD combo pack. The 2160p/Dolby Vision UHD is only a slight improvement over the Blu-ray, despite being shot at resolutions of 2.8K and 3.4K and finished at 2K. Yes, the image is sharper overall, especially important when offering an atmospheric film with creepy shadows, lots of night scenes, and shapes that go bump in the night. Colors, notably within the Creed house, do pop nicely. The exteriors build on soundstages are brought into sharper relief here which does spoil the overall feel the producers were hoping for.

The film’s Dolby Atmos soundtrack works quite nicely, well matching the atmospheric feel of the film. The sound effects are sharp and do add a nice feel to the experience.

The Special Features are found on the Blu-ray and contain an Alternate Ending (9:16), followed by Deleted and Extended Scenes (16:09); Night Terrors (4:57); The Tale of Timmy Baterman (3:04); Beyond the Deadfall: Chapter One: Resurrection (16:54), Chapter Two: The Final Resting Place (12:38), Chapter Three: The Road to Sorrow (13:59), and Chapter Four: Death Comes Home (18:07). These are all moderately entertaining and informative but nothing out of the ordinary, much like the film being supported.

The Walking Dead S9 Shambles Home August 20

SANTA MONICA, CA (July 2, 2019) – An iconic pop-culture character says goodbye when Season 9 of The Walking Dead arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital), DVD and Digital August 20 from Lionsgate. New showrunner Angela Kang takes the helm as Rick Grimes prepares to make his exit from one of the world’s most popular TV series. The Walking Dead Season 9 stars award winner Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Heartbreaker), Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, Triple 9), Lauren Cohan (All Eyez on Me, Whiskey Cavalier, Mile 22), Danai Gurira (Black Panther, All Eyez on Me), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, TV’s The Good Wife and “Grey’s Anatomy”), and Academy Award® nominee Samantha Morton (2003, Best Actress, In America).
Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him, and he spared Negan to uphold the values his late son, Carl, championed – values that created conflict within his group. Now, with our survivors rebuilding civilization under Rick’s leadership a year and a half after the end of the war, it’s a time of relative peace among the communities. However, the world they knew is rapidly changing, nature is literally taking over, and, as time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles and danger. But nothing can prepare them for the formidable force they’re about to encounter, threatening the very idea of civilization our survivors have worked so hard to build.
The home entertainment release of The Walking Dead Season 9 includes multiple making-of featurettes, including a look at the memorable deaths of the season, deleted scenes, and a bonus scene. The Walking Dead Season 9 Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $80.99 and $70.98, respectively.

REVIEW: Gotham: The Fifth and Final Season, Gotham: The Complete Series

REVIEW: Gotham: The Fifth and Final Season, Gotham: The Complete Series

When Gotham screened its pilot episode at conventions, I watched with fascination, because it showed such promise as a moody, atmospheric take on the pervasive corruption that created the antibody of The Batman. Sure, it wasn’t entirely based on eighty years of canon, but nothing could do that, so I was prepared.

I stopped watching with regularity halfway through the second season because it stopped being what was promised and became something else entirely. It was a ham-fisted, over-the-top camp take on a modern-day comic, more beholden to the ABC Batman series than the comics.

With each successive season, the twists came faster, the characters stopped making sense, and internal logic was found only in the dictionary. This was a manic Gotham City, where the line between good and evil, moral and corrupt, quality and crap was blurred with every scene.

While earlier a ratings darling, it crashed under the weight of its own absurdity and was given a ten episode fifth and final season to wrap things up, get Bruce Wayne under the cape and cowl and call it a day. Then, Fox granted them two more episodes which felt more tacked on than organic.

Gotham: The Fifth and Final Season and Gotham: The Complete Series are out tomorrow from Warner Home Entertainment. You can find them as Blu-ray or DVDs with nary a difference between them so take your pick.

Apparently, showrunner John Stephens had been planning for their take on the No Man’s Land storyline for some time, and then, for good measure, tried to graft on the horrible Zero Year arc from the current Rebirth line of comics. He shoved both under the title Legend of the Dark Knight, but really, that’s reserved for episode twelve.

The nonsense from season four led to the city being cut off from the rest of America, leaving Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), having found his moral bearing once more, a still-teenaged Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), and others to take the city back from Bane (Shane West), sent there by Nyssa al Ghul (Jaime Murray), seeking vengeance for the death of Ra’s al Ghul (who should be getting better any second now).

Turning the tide against impossible odds is, of all people, the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) who, like Carmine Falcone in the pilot, declares his love for the city, despite its evil. “But then what? Stand on the shores of the mainland and watch the army burn it to the ground? Then watch tasteless industrialists and vapid politicians rebuild it? My life is etched on the walls of every alley and dirty warehouse here. My blood lives in its broken concrete. I’m staying to fight for my legacy,” he declares.

We win, of course, just as Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) has given birth to a daughter, named Barbara Lee Gordon, combining the threesome that fueled much of the romance for five years. We know she’ll become Batgirl down the road so it’s a nice nod even fi the timing makes little sense, like so much else of the show.

My biggest complaint was always that by having Mr. Freeze, the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Penguin, Scarecrow (David W. Thompson), Hugo Strange (BD Wong), and others a decade ahead of Batman’s arrival, would make them too old to be true threats when they would eventually face off. The teen Selina (Camren Bicondova) made more sense as she grew up experiencing much the same as Bruce, only to make different choices. The ever-aging Poison Ivy (Peyton List) also made a kind of sense given the life of a plant.

And it shows in the finale, where we pick up a decade later, but only Selina (Lili Simmons) has aged, the others stuck in place, stretching credulity. Bruce has finally left Gotham City, after leaving a series of farewell letters to Selina and Alfred (Sean Pertwee) for his training, something way overdue, and comes back, shadowing Gordon until things get dire thanks to Jerome (Cameron Monaghan), the faux-Joker of the series, who shoots Barbara and threatens baby Babs at the Ace Chemical plant. We finally get the Dark Knight and then credits roll.

Yes, the show had its admirers and fans, that’s how it lasted five tortuous seasons. It never lived up to my expectations, going so far in the other direction, my distaste grew visceral. Still, if you liked the show, you can relive every quirky, oddball, hyperkinetic moment.

The box set contains the existing versions of the first, second, third, and fourth seasons with nothing new added. The Fifth and Final Season contains several bonus features to sate your appetite for more craziness. There’s the lengthy Villains: Modes of Persuasion, plus Gotham S5: Best Moments at NY Comic Con 2018, Gotham’s Last Stand, and Unaired scenes.
