    JERSEY BOYS - (movie review) - at FORCES OF GEEK

     

    Produced by Clint Eastwood, Graham King, 
    Robert Lorenz
    Screenplay by Marshall Brickman, Rick Elice
    Based on Jersey Boys by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
    Directed by Clint Eastwood
    Starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, 
    Michael Lamenda, Vincent Piazza, Christopher Walken



    John Lloyd Young stars as Frankie Valli in the Clint Eastwood directed movie Jersey Boys, based on the jukebox musical of the same name.

    This retelling of the origin of the Four Seasons flips from being Goodfellas to Bye Bye Birdie, adds a bit of previously unknown dangerous element to the pop groups’ origin, and offers another outlet for Eastwood’s directorial oeuvre

    The talented cast are triple threats in the classical show-biz way, and the romantic notion of cutting a record and shopping it around to labels is illustrated in the musical as the quartet finally gets a name and a ‘sound’.

    Told partially by having each of the members of the Four Seasons break the fourth wall and narrate the story, we start out with Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire) as founding member Tommy DeVito. His criminal activities, black market dealings and revolving door at the state prison make for a very Henry Hill intro to the movie.

    THE COSMIC TREADMILL LOOKS AT 'AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE: BOOK ONE' (REVIEW)

     

     

    Afterlife with Archie: Book One collects the first five issues of Archie’s first horror comic that oozes blood, terror and Archie family in-jokes that is sure to make you run from Riverdale.

    Don’t run too far, because the art is by Francesco Francavilla and is written by screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Glee, Big Love) who’s understanding of the Archie-verse allows him to turn this town on it’s head.

    His most spectacular feat is making transforming Jughead into a monster of Freddy or Jason proportions.

    Zombies. Halloween Dance. Teenage romance. ‘Don’t go in there’.

    The most unsuspecting comics company took a turn for the morbid with this series.

    With the announcement of a Sabrina the Teenage Witch series in the same bloody vein, it looks like the supermarket comic crowd is in for a terrifying surprise.

    KICKSTARTER KORNER: FROM CAN MAN TO FILE 13; CHILDHOOD COMIC GETS REIMAGINED FOR KICKSTARTER

    This edition of Kickstarter Korner kicks the Can with Dan Hosek and also, apparently Keith Koppenhoefer, who jumped in so as not to be silenced any more!

    File 13 is a fun retro superhero comic looking for that last boost to make a childhood dream a reality.

    Consider your pledges after the jump! 

    FOG!: Dan, thanks for taking the time to tell us about File 13! What’s the general scoop?

    Dan Hosek: Thanks for having me, Clay. File 13 is a full-color, monthly series about Scott Solson’s high tech, high adventure “hero’s journey” (with a healthy dose of absurdist humor thrown in). The stories draw on equal parts classic superhero storytelling, pop culture references, high drama, science fiction, and historic events that are stranger than fiction.

    At its best, it will drop your jaw then make you laugh three pages later. Its also the culmination of a 30 year journey for me and this character.  I created the basis for the book—well, the book now hardly resembles anything like what I created when I was 12, but the basic characters are there.
