Daredevil: Season 2, First Reviews.


131415

The first serious look at Daredevil was released a few days ago, however, the first set of reviews for the entire season are starting pour in… Much to no one’s surprise, they seem to be exceedingly positive.  That said, from the sounds of things some of the pacing issues and jarring tonal shifts that became an issue during the Man Without Fear’s first TV outing are also present – but for the most part these initial reactions are very positive.

As expected, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle/The Punisher seems to have emerged as a highlight, with his take on the vicious vigilante being hailed as a brilliantly complex antagonist the same vein as Wilson Fisk. Another new character we haven’t seen as much of is Elektra, so fans should be very happy to hear that Elodie Yung is highly praised for her incarnation of the seductively skilled warrior in every review so far.

Fear The Walking Dead: First Look.


fear-1

Although it was announced at Comic-Con that Fear The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC on August 23rd, the first look surfaced online recently. The companion series is a prequel dealing with the zombie outbreak, and this first trailer does a great job of setting the tone. Will it live up to the series it’s based on? That remains to be seen. Once again, we’ll update this post with a region-free version of the trailer the second it becomes available. What do you think about this first look at Fear The Walking Dead?

How To Make A Zombie.


The walking dead is one of my favorite shows on TV right now (since Entourage ended).  It’s just interesting to me to see how everyone involved can take a simple zombie movie premise and turn it into a full blown series.  For anyone who hasn’t seen it, it’s a damn good ongoing story that not just all about shooting the undead in the dome.  One of the things that never really grabbed my sense of curiosity was just how they made the zombies in the show.  But the make up designers for the show recently put up somewhat of a tutorial on how exactly they do it.  Check the method.

1. The “Walking Dead” makeup team fits actor Kevin Galbraith with a bald cap and accentuate his high cheekbones to make them look sunken.

2. Next, Galbraith is fitted with rotten-looking, custom-made dentures that can fit under a prosthesis.

3. A custom-made, foam latex prosthesis extends from Galbraith’s forehead to his neck.

4. Makeup artists Kevin Wasner (far left) and Jake Garber glue on individual body wounds. “We had to do his entire upper body. It took 45 minutes,” Nicotero says. Zombie blood is a mixture of Karo syrup, red and yellow food coloring and caramel, plus a drop of detergent so it soaks through clothing.

5. Garber next fits the greasy, sparse zombie wig to the bald cap.

6. Zombies have no time to shave so Wasner adds some stubble and some disgusting dried blood around Galbraith’s mouth. “It’s black sludge in their veins,” says Nicotero.7. The application of hand-painted white contact lenses is the final step of Galbraith’s transformation from working actor to frightening zombie. “The most inspiring part of what we’re doing is that you can have the same person sit in your chair 10 times and they won’t look like the same person when they walk out of the makeup trailer,” says Nicotero.

For all of those who were disgusted, appauled, and still totally obsessed with Jersey Shore (like my older sister), you now have something new to look forward to.  The second season of Jersey Shore premieres on July 29th for 12 episodes.  The season is reported to start out in Miami, and mid-way, return to the great state of New Jersey.  (The change is necessary, because the temperature in Jersey won’t support tourism until mid to late June)
