FREAKISH Makes its Hulu Debut
During Saturday detention, bells ring signaling a containment drill and evacuation – not out of the ordinary for a town with a large chemical plant.
The 20 students and the basketball coach retreat to the school fallout shelter for the duration of the drill.
Only it’s not a drill…
When the sirens stop and they return to the school lobby, they find their town has been decimated by an explosion.
They see no signs of life outside their high school’s front doors.
More frightening, those who were not in the bunker appear to be infected…

HACKSAW RIDGE In Theaters Nov. 4

HACKSAW RIDGE In Theaters Nov. 4

“HACKSAW RIDGE” is the extraordinary true story of WWII medic Desmond Doss, played by Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spiderman), who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, miraculously saved 75 men in a matter of hours without firing or carrying a gun.

He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, except the simple prayer he uttered before he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, under constant enemy gunfire and artillery bombardment.

Doss’ courage and faith won the admiration of his commanders and fellow soldiers, as he saved the lives of the very men who had persecuted him for refusing to carry a gun.

He believed the war was just, but to kill under any circumstance was wrong.

Doss was labeled the first conscientious objector (he called himself a “conscientious cooperator” as he volunteered) to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor.

“Hacksaw Ridge” is directed by Mel Gibson (Braveheart, The Passion of the Christ) and also stars Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Vince Vaughn.

Coming to theaters nationwide November 4

#Thisfunktional #FathomEvents Brought Adam West’s Batman Back to the Big Screen

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Fathom Event’s brought new animation “Batman Return of the caped Crusaders” to the big screen with a special intro by the cast of AMC’s “Geeking Out.”

With Tiffany Smith, Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg of “Geeking Out” exchanging stories of their introductions to Batman and how the caped crusader has impacted their lives, the intro gives a bit more of a nostalgia factor as Adam West voices Batman, Burt Ward voices Robin and Julie Newmar voices Catwoman once again.

There’s something about West’s Batman which keeps fans returning to this version of Batman.

The animated feature has the caped crusaders facing four of their iconic villains, but also has one surprise adversary which is unexpected.

The voices of Jeff Bergman as the Joker, William Salyers as the Penguin and Wally Wingert as the Riddler blend well with the style that West’s Batman is known for.

This story feels like actual fans of West’s Batman took great care to properly honor the classic series.

“Batman return of the Caped Crusaders” is available on Digital HD on Oct. 11 and will be available on Blu-ray on Nov. 1.

I give this animated movie 5 out of 5 Popcorns. The original voices are great to set the story in the same Batman storyline as the classic series. The comedy of this version of Batman is well set and much more than a dark knight, this Batman makes audiences believe that being a good person, good citizen and conscious of positive beliefs can make a hero. It’s a much different Batman than audiences have had for the recent versions of Batman. The use alliteration and tone keep audiences glued to the screen.
