Comic Con: a place for fans

Comic Con: a place for fans

With hundreds of panels and 130,000 attendees, San Diego Comic Con is arguably the biggest fan event of the year. It’s a place where fans can get exclusive sneak peeks of movies, TV shows, comic books and games, a place where a regular Joe can ask a star a question during a panel, and a place where fangirls and fanboys can meet their idols in person for autographs or photos. With the increasing number of … Read entire article »

Confessions of a fangirl

Confessions of a fangirl

Every year, I go to Comic Con for Trashwire to cover the event, from the cosplayers to the celebs on panels. But, every year, there’s always something special that becomes my personal Comic Con goal—my own little fangirl quest, if you will. These quests can involve something simple, like attending a cool panel, but they usually involve something far more fangirly than that. They usually involve my celebrity crush du jour. … Read entire article »

Back into the fray! Trashwire heads to San Diego Comic Con 2013

Back into the fray! Trashwire heads to San Diego Comic Con 2013

Trashwire is in the hizzouse (yes, I realize how ridiculous and dated that sounds) for San Diego Comic Con 2013. Pop culture mecca is bustling again with celebs, superheroes, a fair share of obscure cosplay, and more than a few Targaryens—in fact, about two dozen Khaleesi clones were spotted in our first few minutes at the convention center. While Thursday is still pretty early into the con, we spotted Lost stars Josh Holloway and Evangeline … Read entire article »

Dream team DiCaprio and Lurhmann dazzle with ‘Gatsby’

Dream team DiCaprio and Lurhmann dazzle with ‘Gatsby’

First of all, I just want to offer a warning that it’s going to be very difficult for me to write this review without totally fangirling out over Leonardo DiCaprio. You see, I’ve absolutely adored him since the days of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? and I am absolutely confident that he is the best actor of my generation. I should probably also mention that I think Baz Luhrmann is an incredibly inventive and talented director … Read entire article »

3D brings new dazzle to ‘Jurassic Park’

3D brings new dazzle to ‘Jurassic Park’

When I was nine years old, I had my mind completely blown when I sat in the movie theater and watched Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park for the first time. The story, based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name, was gripping, the special effects were breathtaking and the movie was one of few I’ve ever seen that could genuinely classify as a cinematic adventure. After 20 years, Jurassic Park still holds up and now, with the addition … Read entire article »

Imaginative sci-fi bogged down by teen romance in ‘The Host’

Imaginative sci-fi bogged down by teen romance in ‘The Host’

We all know Stephenie Meyer from Twilight, the franchise that set teen hearts aflutter with sparkly vampires and bland high school love interests. She’s back with something of the non-blood-sucking variety with The Host, adapted from her sci-fi novel of the same name. The film takes an classic sci-fi concept (aliens taking over the human race) and mixes in the teeny romance Meyer is known for, creating a sort of Star Trek meets The Notebook … Read entire article »
