 Flashbacks can have their ups and downs. The memories of a lost and drunken weekend in Las Vegas can bring on a negative aftermath, but a flashback from a past convention has a better chance of a more positive outcome and will be less dangerous.

 At the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, the Nowhere California team crossed paths with a flashback from conventions past and talked with Jason Beckwith. Jason is the creative mind behind multiple independent comic books, such as “Taking Eden” and “The Tool”. Also, Jason is a fixture in the convention circuit and can be usually found in “Artist’s Alley” portion of the convention floor, this is where the guys from Nowhere first crossed paths with Jason at the 2016 Long Beach Comic Expo.

 One year later, we had the pleasure to talk with Jason about the current state of his comics and the world of the convention floor..

 There is a conflict that the fake news networks are too afraid to report on and this battle is something that blurs any political lines. This fight is as old as time and it is the war of MAN vs. ROCK, where some fear to tread two men continue to spread the word and Nowhere California was lucky enough to talk with these men for a second time.

 At the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, the Nowhere California Hack Pack crossed paths with Kevin Bieber and Victor De Troy to discuss the world of MAN vs. Rock, since their last meeting. The conversation runs the range of topics from their new monthly column to MAN vs. ROCK hitting the shelves of your favorite comic book store and anything else that might escape the minds of everyone involved in this interview.

A Look From Nowhere At Special Unit..

 The worst cop in Los Angeles has hit rock bottom and his commanding officer has a new assignment for him. In a swing from the fairness in disability act, Officer Garrett Fowler has to train the department’s four new handicapped detectives and keep his sanity intact.

 Now, with that being established, here is the trailer for the movie “Special Unit.”

“Special Unit” was written and directed by stand-up comedy artist Christopher Titus. Titus has been a stand-up comic for many years, jumping into the mainstream with his stand-up specials and underrated FOX sitcom. This film has been a pet project for a few years and the pieces fell together into possibly a darkly hysterical piece of independent film. The tone for the movie is quickly set in this trailer and the cast of “Special Unit” is a gathering of some of the most talented minds in comedy.

During the 2016 Studio City Film Festival, “Special Unit” was an official selection of the festival and will continue to travel to other events. This is one of those dark comedies that will gain the right audience and will gain a positive word of mouth wave.

Nowhere California has history of love for the world of independent films and creativity, so we will work towards viewing this movie and give you our review.

Forget about Batman versus Superman and Captain America versus Iron Man doesn’t hold a candle to a battle that has been fought for centuries. The war of the ages have been fought between the worlds of man versus the brutal beasts we know as ROCKS! During the 2016 Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Convention, the guys from Nowhere had the pleasure to talk with the men behind the insanity known as MAN Vs. ROCK.

Kevin Bieber and Victor De Troy are the creator of this comic book madness, the world of MAN Vs. ROCK is something that has to be seen to be believed and the same can be said about talking to these two men. The Nowhere California team didn’t have a video camera ready, but the audio will allow you to take fun journey.

During Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Convention, the guys from Nowhere crossed paths with a friend of con’s past and caught up with Taz.

The last time the team had crossed paths with Taz was at the 2014 Days of the Dead Convention, during the conventions Saturday morning cartoon screening and a friendship was formed through a alcohol charged commentary.

Since that chance meeting, we have been looking for a chance to cross paths with Taz and that opportunity came at this year’s Los Angeles Comic Con. There wasn’t a cartoon screening to riff our way through, but Taz and I had a great conversation about his return to the states. Also, the conversation delves into Taz’s musical life and his work with the band “As Flesh Decays” (CLICK HERE for As Flesh Decays EP “SINISTER”)

Childish Gambino is entering a galaxy far, far away and a very important piece of Han Solo’s past has been casted for the upcoming spin off. The rumors have been confirmed and the official Star Wars Twitter account announced that Donald Glover will play the future Baron Administrator, Lando Calrissian. Glover will be joining Alden Ehrenreich, who will be playing a younger and still breathing Han Solo.

The still untitled entry into the Star Wars universe will revolve around their early life in the intergalactic underworld.

Since there is still a lot of time before the 2018 release, the casting and story information will becoming quickly. As this world continues to grow and the movie begins to get filmed, stay locked into this site and http://www.starwars.com for any new information.

A few weeks ago, Nowhere California was introduced to the independent horror/comedy “CONJOINED” and I was quickly intrigued by this bare bones, but highly creative movie. I wrote a review for this movie and posted my thoughts to this website.

Recently, I was able to talk to one of the creative minds behind this movie and talk to Joe Grisaffi. Joe was the director of “CONJOINED” and this interview dives into the evolution of a crazy story idea. Also, our conversation takes a look at Joe’s career and his adventures in the 8-bit video game world.

Returning To The Party..

In the world of documentaries, entertainment can easily be lost to information overload and that will vary from subject to subject, but that is where “Glory Daze:The Life And Times Of Michael Alig” takes the road less traveled. It is these traits that lead to my interview with Ramon Fernandez, the director of “Glory Daze”, and our conversation delves into a case that still fascinates many to this date.

The curious case of Michael Alig begins in the rise of the New York Club scene of the 90s, where the club kids and drugs ran the street. Alig became the leader of this party revolution and felt untouchable, but the party came to an end and Alig was convicted of murder.

This documentary will give you a look at a life and a moment of time that could easily be forgotten, but dissects this period to every level. The entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Ramon for talking with us and giving us some insight on the making of this film.

COMIC CON 2016- There Is A Witch In The Woods..

It’s time to return to Burkittsville, but first we have to take a detour through the woods and take a look at one of the biggest cinema surprises in a very long time. As this year’s San Diego Comic Con becomes a memory, one of the event’s more shocking moments came from an unlikely source.

That was the teaser trailer for a movie known as “The Woods” and this movie could easily have been swept under the rug, but there were a few things that quickly stood out. First, the soundtrack and the tone that was set. “Every Breath You Take” is an iconic song, it’s a song that can have dozens of meaning and that depends on the listener. Also, the meaning could be taken to a different level by the performer and this interpretation was brought to a fitting level in the world of horror cinema.

The next aspect of this teaser trailer would lead the most wayward horror fan to see that there was going to be more to “The Woods” then just another camping trip and I’m talking about the critics comments, as the trailer begin you are quickly met with the glowing praise of this movie. The praise all says the same thing and it’s the start of something huge in the genre.

Now, this brings us to the 2016 San Diego Comic Con and a special screening of “The Woods.” The reality of the screening was revealed before the projector even warmed up, leaving the select members of the media and a few lucky Comic Con attendees pleasantly surprised. As the screening’s guests waited to enter the theater, crew members took down the promotional posters and banners for “The Woods” to replace them with the real title of the movie.

blair-witch

The long rumored return of the Blair Witch was a reality and it was kept off the radar of the normally spoiler fueled Hollywood. This movie was written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard, both having blood on their hands from the V/H/S film series and modern horror classic “You’re Next”.

“Blair Witch” follows a group of college kids into the woods, as James wants to know what happened to his sister 20 years earlier and the group quickly realize the reality of this legend. As the screening proceeded and word spread, the internet was hit with a new trailer for this cult classic’s sequel.

As a fan of the original, I am excited to see the Blair Witch return and this new movie seems to stay faithful to the classic. The concept of found footage movies have become such a common place in cinema, that the scare factor has been erased and this movie looks to change that.

The critical praise seems to be legit and everyone should be ready to jump in their seats, when “BLAIR WITCH” comes to theaters September 16th
