     NBC’s Constantine TV show is set to air on 24th October with Matt Ryan in the lead role so there’s plenty of time to familiarise yourself with Vertigo’s paranormal PI.

     Grubby, British, sociopolitical and astute, Constantine’s adventures will appeal to those who want smarts with their supernatural.

     There are bigger, more epic story arcs than the standalones in this graphic novel collection but time in Constantine’s company is always well spent.

     Perhaps you missed The Mist?  Frank Darabont works his magic on another Stephen King novel with a couple of appearances from The Walking Dead cast.  A new 10 part TV series based on The Mist has just been announced so catch-up now.  It’s more than worth a watch for that ending…

     This month’s must see movie has a rather tenuous Middle-earth link and an intriguing take on fantasy and the nature of storytelling.  It also stars Lee Pace, an actor who has hovered on the brink of stardom for too long and may well steal Orlando Bloom’s “Hottest Elf” crown with his darkly enigmatic portrayal of Legolas’ father, King Thranduil of Mirkwood.

     There is still time to catch The Fall before the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.  If you enjoy the trailer then watch the full movie right here!

     It is only the snow and not the vampires that glitter in this must-see Scandinavian horror gem.  No, we’re not talking about Let The Right One In – the thinking vamp-groupie’s vamp movie – but Anders Banke’s Frostbite (2006) known intermittently as Frostbitten (and Frostbiten in Swedish) just to add a little confusion.

     This is what happens when you drop old school scary bloodsuckers into a town of restless youths enduring 24/7 darkness.  Check out the trailer and line-up a full viewing for Halloween.

     So here it is, our first look at the next installment of Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth multiplex pleaser.

     Despite the portentous dialogue snippets it seems much lighter than The Two Towers – a fellow sufferer of middle movie syndrome – and more action-oriented than it’s predecessor, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

     When The Hobbit was first mooted Jackson declined the director’s chair, fearing perhaps that his confidence and experience would lead him to “do a George Lucas” and start tinkering self-indulgently and retconning his screen creation to its detriment.

     Alterations and additions are always necessary when adapting a story from one medium to the next but they are only truly successful if they integrate seamlessly with the original author’s vision:  we have a trailer that looks more like Peter Jackson’s Hobbit than Tolkien’s.

     If Jackson wants to make an Elf movie wouldn’t he be better adapting The Silmarillion?  Poor old Bilbo scarcely gets a look-in as we are treated to tree-running Timotei models who skid into shot with the enthusiasm of sugar-dosed kids on polished floors.  Back in his Rings days Jackson wisely cut leaked scenes of “Action Arwen” kicking Orc at Helm’s Deep after incurring the wrath of Tolkien fans.  Now it is hoped those same fans will accept original invention, Tauriel – a red-haired female Wood Elf who has achieved warrior status decades before poor Éowyn has to sneak off to Minas Tirith in drag.

     The biggest surprise is the full close-up reveal of Smaug’s head.  Despite the opportunity to allow the art department’s imagination to run riot the trailer delivers a very conventional-looking dragon – unless he’s hiding a serpentine body or a clockwork limb.  This may be a way to get the critique over and done with so, by December, audiences can relax and enjoy the flying, fire-breathing and vocal stylings of Benedict Cumberbatch.

     We revealed here some months ago that Cumberbatch had been cast as  Sauron The Necromancer (link to the article below) yet, whichever evil nasty he is portraying New Line seem desperate to keep Cumberbatch’s contributions under wraps.

     It’s nice to catch a glimpse of Luke Evans although such a pivotal character might have warranted a bigger fanfare and what about “sexy” Dwarf Kili – and all the other supporting Dwarves for that matter.  We need a longer trailer, but share your thoughts on this one while we wait…

There's No Room Back Here.

I know I’m late to the game here but this is amazing. I only discovered Street of Crocodiles after reading Bruno Schulz for the first time, embarrassingly only a few days ago. Gotta start somewhere.

EAT YOUR HEART OUT, DAVID LYNCH.

On a side note, Bruno Schulz is my new obsession. I will facebooklike him in my heart for ever and ever and ever. I’m aware that I’m a huge geek because I’m fangirling over a dead Polish author with a very small body of work, a man who was most likely a bit creepy.

Example A:

This is an old picture and the quality is compromised clearly, but LOOK AT HIS FACE. Stop staring at me like that, stop it. No.

In any case, the short novel The Street of Crocodiles / The Cinnamon Shops are online. Go read a book! (On a computer screen.) Even the cover…
