Streaming Review: Stranger Things 2

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) In July 2016, Netflix premiered the sleeper hit of the summer. An eight episode series called Stranger Things set in the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in 1983. I started that review with a single sentence, which went, “If you’re going to binge watch anything this week, make it Stranger Things.” For season two, […]

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) The Star Wars Han Solo spinoff has gone through some rough times. Written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the film was initially directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who were fired deep into production.

Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Blade Runner 2049 is going to be one of the most difficult reviews I’ve ever had to write. I’m still trying to process exactly what I saw, and put it into words with the backdrop of this being a sequel to a celebrated classic. But here it goes. The original Blade […]

Did Disney step in to save Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) No one disputes that Marvel Studios is pretty much the king of the box office when it comes to superhero films. Every year they release two or three movies, and every year they make it into the top ten grossing films, and […]

A Geek’s Reaction: Linda Hamilton Added To Terminator 6

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Terminator’s Sarah Connor is one of the most iconic female action figures of all time, so it’s always been a bit of a head-scratcher that Linda Hamilton never returned to the franchise. The character was brought back in 2008 in the short-lived TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and played by […]

JJ Abrams Officially Returns to Direct Star Wars: Episode IX

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Lucasfilm hasn’t had a very good track record when it comes to directors since the company was bought by Disney. The first sign of trouble was when Josh Trank stepped down from directing an anthology film, which was then followed by issues plaguing Rogue One with Tony Gilroy writing and […]

Learning From Sundance: El Mariachi

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Last time we were looking at Clerks for lessons we can take away from previous independent films, which was shot for under $30,000. Today, we look at a film that was shot for even less: Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi was filmed for a little over $7,000. El Mariachi is action shlock to […]

Learning From Sundance: Clerks

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Every film tells two stories, the one on the screen and the one behind the scenes. This is the best part of independent filmmaking, sometimes the story behind the film is just as entertaining. And informative. There’s probably no better place to learn the craft of low-to-no budget filmmaking than […]

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) It’s been a while since we heard about Avatar 2, so it was just a matter of time before someone asked James Cameron about it.

Streaming Review: Marvel’s The Defenders

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I have been waiting what feels like a very long time for Marvel’s The Defendersr. When the Marvel/Netflix partnership was announced, I was incredibly excited that we would get four solo series — which included series such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist — that would culminate in a […]
