Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero has died, but he will forever be remembered as a pioneer in the horror movie genre. In 1968, Romero reinvented the “zombie” film with Night of the Living Dead and has since re-visited genre five times with, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, and Survival of the Dead. With the sad news of his passing, I decided to dig up the inaugural Sordid Cinema podcast that we recorded way back on October 27, 2009. In this episode, I invited Detroit Burns (of CKUT), and Al Kratina (of the Montreal Gazette) to discuss Romero’s influential series starting with the original trilogy. At the end of the show, I sat down with the legend to discuss his past, his future, and more.

The first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s upcoming anticipated feature, the stop-motion animated Isle of Dogs, is now available and it’s absolutely fabulous.
With the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey being only the third Mario game in the same vein as Super Mario 64 (following Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine), it is high time to reexamine one of the evergreen staples of the video game canon.

Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.
'Batman and Harley Quinn' doesn't hold a candle to the 90s show it's inspired by, but fans could do worse.
