At Sister Love's - Norman T. Ray

What is Sister Love?

To enter in detail into the novel’s plot would be rather counter-productive, since the discovery of Sister Love’s mysteries is gradual in the novel. I can nevertheless say that the novel is of the “superhero” genre, anchored in our reality as much as possible. The largest part of the story takes place in 2014, and a chapter out of two is a flashback featuring the main character. At the contemporary time there are three main characters: - Sister Love, a mysterious African woman who lived in the United States - Steven Thorne, a... [Lire la suite]

Statesman comes back... but not in City of Heroes? WTF #NCSoft ??

My heart missed two or three heartbeats a few hours ago. In a commercial for a video game named Master X Master, I recognized... the Statesman from City of Heroes!! Statesman was a Superman stand-in (one who would have stolen Magneto's helmet) in the massively multiplayer City of Heroes video game, whose kast server shut down on 2012, November the 30th! Plus de détails ici :   http://normantrayeng.canalblog.com/archives/2013/12/06/28600285.html A real geek trauma. So, yes, technically speaking, it's not that bad. ... [Lire la suite]

A #JohnCarter video game proposal from 2012!

While I was searching for some John Carter poster image for the fifth anniversary of the movie's release, I stumbled upon Yan Le Pon's blog, a French storyboarder from the town of Lyon, who apparently proposed a video game to Disney Interactive before January of 2012, proposal that was rejected. On the link below you will find 15 storyboard pages that detail a rescue of Dejah Thoris. Also featured are Woola and some Tharks. Very promising, go visit this blog! "Here is a storyboard for a video game project done at ELB studio for an... [Lire la suite]

Last night I dreamed about the #JohnCarter 2 set!

Last night I had a dream. Usually I don’t remember my dreams at all. Sometimes I remember having dreamed something but without recalling any detail. And some dreams are so powerful you remember everything when you wake up. This is, of course, one of the latter I will write about!  I was, in short, on the John Carter 2 set. It was in my hometown, in France. I had noticed, while walking by, a whole crew building movie sets. And as John Carter in the novels knows instantly that he’s on Mars from the moment he steps on it, I knew... [Lire la suite]

#LegendofTarzan at the box-office!

To this day, after two months since the US release on July the 1st, The Legend of Tarzan eventually had a good box-office, in spite of the unexplainable critic backlash it suffered from. In the United States, The Legend of Tarzan defied all expectations. When some critics were predicting a disaster like Pan, the Warner movie which cost 150 million dollars and had a meager 128 million dollars return at the box-office, The Legend of Tarzan earned week after week since its release more than anticipated, sign of a very good word of mouth...

A Carson of Venus movie in the works !

Thanks to a poster named Nerdvana, we learned the great news announced during the ERB Inc Comic Con panel this year: a movie could be produced out of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels starring his hero Carson Napier. There are four novels, and a short story (even if the fourth novel is composed in fact of four short stories). The movie would adapt the first two, Pirates of Venus and Lost on Venus, which form indeed a whole story. The producers are Harry Kloor and Matthew Rhodes. The treatment is written and the...

#LegendofTarzan Review of a great movie, an unexpected rebirth!

The last live-action Tarzan movie was released in 1998, and the least that can be said about it is that it didn’t make a lasting impression. In that regard it’s odd to see that both “Tarzan and the Lost City” and “The Legend of Tarzan” share many similarities! Both begin in London where Tarzan leads a gentrified life as John Clayton the Third. Particular circumstances lead him back to Africa, where he has to deal with a chief mercenary whose men are in love with their Gatling machinegun… So, what makes the difference in this new and...

#LegendofTarzan Tarzan racist and colonialist? NO!

It seems that some critics have taken upon themselves to embark on a holy mission: keeping you away from The Legend of Tarzan by any means possible, so that you won’t be exposed to this archetypal symbol of racism and colonialism. Because, of course, you’re too stupid to form your own opinion. First thing first, my profound belief is that it’s completely stupid to apply real-world reasoning to imaginary tales. Tarzan doesn’t exist for real, no more so than Popeye or Superman. If you think about it for a minute, le very concept of... [Lire la suite]

Better Love by Hozier, the song from #TheLegendofTarzan

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wm4CrOfbHMI So the singer Hozier (Take Me To Church, among others) has been chosen to sing what will probably be the end credit song for The Legend of Tarzan. The end result is both romantic and grand, as are Burroughs' novels! By the way, regarding Burroughs'novel, here is a little quote: "Even though the novel was written a hundred years ago, it doesn't feel dated at all. I read it in 2015 and was mesmerized and blown away." Alexander Skarsgard

#JohnCarter 2 and 3: the last hurrah announced for September

Andrew Stanton, when someone asked about a John Carter 2, recently answered "Not for me. Maybe an event in the fall". It seems like this event could be a video recorded by Stanton, revealing what would have been the two sequels to John Carter. The video would be recorded in September, to be released on line later on. This would mark the end of the saga for this movie, which was as cursed as it was loved way after its release by many of its viewers, and that would be a wonderful way to thank all the die-hard fans for their...
