    Comic-Con '11: 'Knights of Badassdom' Gets Trailer & First Look Image

    LARP Movie Ruled Hall H With A Foam SwordBeing the geekiest panel at Comic-Con's Hall H takes some work, but for our money, the honor goes to the LARP horror-comedy "Knights of Badassdom" and their Saturday nerdfest. For the uninitiated, LARP stands for "Live Action Role-Play," so picture Dungeons & Dragons with costumes and foam swords on a battlefield off a highway somewhere (you'll recall some of this from the subplot and ending of "Role Models"). Before the panel began, actual LARPers in costume led the audience in a shout of "huzzah!" and director Joe Lynch clearly was in awe of his film's Hall H presence, walking on stage and saying, "H...

    DVD review: Forget The Film, Watch The Titles!

    I’ve always loved ingenious title sequences. Saul Bass, who created some of the greatest movie openings of all time (Vertigo, Psycho, North by Northwest, Walk on the Wild Side, That’s Entertainment, Part II and a handful of Martin Scorsese films, to name just a few), remains one of my heroes, along with Maurice Binder (who did those unforgettable James Bond titles) and Pablo Ferro (who once sent me a hand-inked note in the exact typeface he used for Dr. Strangelove!). In recent years such talented conceptualists as Kyle Cooper and the team at yU & Co. have generated graphic ideas as innovative as any of their predecess...
