Star Trek: Discovery to Premiere in Late Summer or Early Fall

A Geek’s Reaction to the Final Kong: Skull Island Trailer

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Giant monster movies like Them! and the amazingly terrible The Giant Claw are something that seemed to disappear in the United States after the heyday of b-movies in the 50s. None of them ever lived up to the 1933 classic King Kong. That’s probably why the film has been remade several […]

On Set Sound – Part 3

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Location, location, location. One of the biggest mistakes I see made on first time productions is location scouting, for everything from set decoration to cinematography and sound. Not that the locations are not well picked for what the film requires (if you want the best example of this, however, watch […]

Lego Batman Director In Talks To Helm Live-Action Nightwing Film

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Last week we received some good news about The Batman. Matt Reeves is stepping in to helm the film, which is a pretty big win for the DCEU, as it tries to course correct its growing universe. Ben Affleck welcomed him via a tweet, so all of those who still think […]

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Word has come in that reshoots for Star Wars: The Last Jedi will commence in March.

On Set Sound – Part 2

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) One of the key things about sound for production is choosing the right mics. There are several good brands for microphones like Audio-Technica or Sennheiser. Even better, recording technology hasn’t really changed too much over the years, so a good mic today will be a good mic tomorrow. To give […]

Matt Reeves Officially Set To Direct The Batman

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) It seems that every time I write something about The Batman specifically (and the DCEU generally), I start off with something along the lines of, “One of these days I’ll write an article about only good things happening in the DCEU.” That day has finally arrived! Warner Bros. has officially […]

Fox Releases Alien: Covenant Prologue Called Last Supper

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) The Alien franchise goes back almost 40 years and in that time only one great sequel was ever produced. Alien 3 was a studio mess, Alien: Resurrection was just just strange, and Prometheus saw Ridley Scott return to spearhead a prequel. The prequel was uneven at best. Beautifully shot but […]
