#583: Creatures’ Features

April 25, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #582: Gateway to Horror

The obvious response to this — and don't think Jason wouldn't have brought it up — is that the audience's imagination is scarier than anything Hollywood can throw at you, but that only works to some extent. There's only so much a movie can avoid showing you before it gets ridiculous: you can't shoot around everything. Try imagining a Jaws that absolutely never showed a shark. (Also, bear in mind this strip is specifically talking about creature design, not gore, which doesn't need to be explicit to be effective.)

So, anyway… bit of announcement today. Some of you may have already noticed the link graphic at the top late last week, but in case you didn't: Multiplex is now part of the Blank Label Comics collective, along with Dave Willis's Shortpacked, Kel McDonald of Sorcery 101 and Spike's Templar, Arizona. If you don't already read them, buy their books! (Or, you know, read them online.)

Unrelated note: I kinda want to make Kurt's T-shirt.

Trailer Watch: The Theory of Everything trailer

Friday, August 15, 2014

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.

James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
