    Thoroughly flawed, but enjoyable.

    I'm skipping the reveal until the end but let's look at the story without it. Hordr as a concept is actually pretty sound. Watching a target, gathering information, ransoming their servitude. A villain with that kind of power over people can be as deadly as any super powered villain but then you see the flying buses, solid shadow ninjas, the needless cameo of Toymaster, the metal mask ID passes... that's when it all falls apart.

August 1, 2015: DC Fan Film - "Turpin: Terrible Toys" Kickstarter CampaignPrint

Filmmaker and Superman fan Robert Dodrill has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his DC fan film "Turpin: Terrible Toys" - a short film that takes place in a pre-Superman Metropolis. It follows Detective Dan Turpin as he sets out to find a serial killer who uses toys as weapons.

    My goal with the project is to create a unique and entertaining fan film based on the character of Detective Dan Turpin of the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit.

    You might be asking why Dan Turpin? Or even who is Dan Turpin? As a comic fan (especially a huge Superman fan), and also as an aspiring filmmaker, I have wanted to take on a fan film for quite some time. But I wasn't quite sure which direction I wanted to take it, or which character I even wanted to do.

    The project began while I was brainstorming the possibilities of a Superman fan film. I eventually landed on an idea where Toyman would be the antagonist.

Visit the Kickstarter page for "Turpin: Terrible Toys" for more details and to help fund this project.


July 31, 2015: Nicolas Cage Talks About "Superman Lives" DocumentaryPrint

Nicolas Cage as Superman With the release of the full-length documentary "The Death of 'Superman Lives'; What Happened?", Yahoo! Movies asked Nicolas Cage to comment on the film and his thoughts about people now seeing more from the film in which he would have starred as Superman.

    There's a new documentary about the Superman movie you almost made with Tim Burton. Your costume as the Man of Steel is quite something.

    The only thing I'll say about that - because that is such a lighting rod hot topic and if I say anything at all it just seems to snowball - but I will say that I had great belief in that movie and in what Tim Burton's vision was going to be for that movie. I would've loved to have seen it, but I feel that in many ways, it was sort of a win/win because of the power of the imagination. I think people can actually see the movie in their minds now and imagine it and in many ways that might resonate more deeply than the finished project.

    People have really done a lot of imagining about how the film would have looked.

    Tim is the total artist, a pure artist with a real vision, and I've often said that he can create worlds and that's exactly what he does. I saw some of the tests of different characters and costumes for Krypton and they were just so surreal and so magical and beautiful. He's definitely one of my favorite filmmakers because of his originality, because of his vision.
