Ms. Vampy earns Brooke Lewis another award

Regular listeners know there's much love in The Basement for our No. 1 scream queen, Brooke Lewis. Already a multiple-award winner, including for her role in Slime City Massacre, the lovely lady's work has once again been recognized . . . and we couldn't be happier for her.

Brooke's TV pilot and web series, Ms. Vampy's Tween Tawk, Teen Tawk & In Between Tawk, has won a Honolulu Film Awards Silver Lei Award For Comedy/Family/Talk Show!

"This is the most special project I've created! I want to inspire girls of all ages. I'm still a teenage girl at heart who deals with her own issues and insecurities and, if I can make a difference in the lives of tweens and tweens today, then I have done my job. VAMPT IT OUT!," Brooke said.

Brooke followed up her successful 2009 Ms. Vampy web series with this new inspirational series aimed at young girls, with discussions around body image, self-esteem, peer pressure, caring about what others think of you, being popular, facing your fears, following your dreams, boys and Twilight. 

Oddly enough, Brooke encountered some resistance from Hollywood when she embarked on the project. Apparently they believed a vampire icon or character couldn't be a positive role model for teens. Brooke and The Basement say bullcrap to that!

"I feel that a win like this . . . confirms my creative convictions and instincts all along! I am proud to be an actress and producer in the horror genre and I know that Ms. Vampy can be a positive role model  to everyone!"

Congrats Brooke, and keep up the great work! You do The Basement proud!

Review: The Proposal (2018)

"Admit it: that was cool as fuck."

Star Marc Natoli says that line about half way through the action short The Proposal, and there's no better way to sum the film up. Although just 10 or so minutes long, The Proposal is everything an action fan could ask for.

In fact, the only complaint I've got is I wanted more!

Will "Batman" actor "bale" on a "Justice League" movie?

One thing that entertainment news shows and websites have in common is that they report on rumours floating around the ether in regards to upcoming movie projects and the names that might possibly be attached to them.

This article continues in that proud tradition of saying, "Here's some juicy movie gossip".

In the wake of the extremely popular "Avengers" movie- and even before it, there has been rumours of Warner Bros. and DC Comics putting out a "Justice League" movie.  The current round of rumours surrounding this project are pretty much as follows:
1.  Warner Bros is courting Christopher Nolan of the recent "Dark Knight" trilogy to be involved with pretty much EVERY superhero project at the studio.  Nolan is also responsible for bringing Superman to audiences with "Man of Steel".  This rumour has been enhanced by the fact that a re-write of the "Justice League" script was ordered a few months ago; 2.  Zack Snyder is …

Review: Daredevil Season Three

While the Mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe has proven a powerful force at the box office and among fans, Marvel's Netflix lineup is a bit shaky. Each series has its own merits (maybe not Iron *spits* Fist) but only The Punisher has managed to hold my interest through the full season.

The Punisher and, of course, Daredevil.

Daredevil is hands down the best of the Marvel Netflix shows, and one of the few remaining now that Iron Fist and Luke Cage have been cancelled. The series continues in fine fashion with this third season. In fact, after a slow warmup, this could be the strongest run yet for Matt Murdock and company.
