Soon after a successful showing at Def Con, I interviewed the filmmakers of the techno-thriller Reboot, director Joe Kawasaki and producer Sidney Sherman. Both have graciously provided with me a half-hour of insights and experiences about Def Con, the making of the movie, the alternate reality game, Joe’s time in Kuwait, and more.
I saw the case and HAD to buy it. This was crazy from Jump Street. It’s got pro wrestling manager Jimmy Hart in it! You have a tournament of creatures versus the undead . A vampire, mummy, the Frankenstein monster, Wolfman and more! Plus, anytime I can see Kevin Nash act, I’m just not gonna pass that up. Continue reading “Monster Brawl Review”
Tina Sauls is a lady of many hats in show business. This Valdosta, Georgia native is a production assistant for several major projects proving that being from a smaller town doesn’t equal small aspirations.

The movie will be shown at Fantasia in Montreal and Def Con in Las Vegas. Continue reading “Interview: Emily Somers”
The Dark Knight Rises is an excellent conclusion to probably the best superhero movie saga in terms of quality. Rises is not a perfect movie and it’s not as fun as The Avengers but Rises still satisfies.

Bane, built like a classic pro wrestler, shows great cunning in his power grab. Meanwhile, catburglar Selina Kyle prefers, initially, to take whatever valuables she targets.
What about Bruce Wayne? He’s not the man he used to be after leaving the Batman identity behind eight years after Harvey Dent’s death. After meeting Selina, Bruce eventually gains the non-stop fighting spirit and gets into the suit again. Continue reading “Dark Knight Rises Review”
Roshawn interviews Ben Perkins, digital compositor for The Amazing Spider-Man. Perkins bring special effects to the screen.
First off, I would like to say thank you for doing this interview with me Ben. I really appreciate the time you took out of your day for this :)
**CONTAINS SOME MOVIE SPOILERS**
Red-Headed Mule: What job did you have on The Amazing Spider-Man?
Ben Perkins: I was a compositor and stereo lead.
RHM. Nice. How was your time working on the movie?
BP: I enjoyed it. With that movie, there were pretty concerned with every pixel in every shot. They went through each shot with a fine tooth comb so we had to do a bunch of different versions for every shot, because they wanted to make it look perfect. Continue reading “Interview: Ben Perkins”
