Tom Jane

31 Days of Horror - October 2011

They said it couldn’t be done. A fifth year of 31 Days of Horror? 31 more terror, gore and shower scene-filled movies worth highlighting? But Rejects always say die and never back away from a challenge, so we’ve rounded up the horror fans among us and put together another month’s worth of genre fun. Enjoy! Synopsis Dick and Gina, two newlyweds driving across the desert on their honeymoon, find themselves embroiled in a mystery of Twilight Zonian proportions when they come across a severely injured stranger on the dark country road. Who is the man? What does he want? And more importantly, when things go sour, what do they do now?

Dirty Laundry Tom Jane

At the 2012 San Diego Comic Con we got an exclusive first look at Tom Jane‘s Dirty Laundry, a short film that saw the fan favorite actor return to the role of Frank Castle – The Punisher. It was an awesome, violent piece that got a lot of people hungry for a new bad-ass movie. If you liked the short, which you can see here, or if you just like seeing how things are done, we present to you a Behind-the-Scenes short on the making of Raw Studios’ Dirty Laundry. We get to see plenty of Tom Jane, the active directing style, the fight choreography, and most interesting to me, some insight into how they executed the disgustingly vicious double-leg break!

Tom Jane at Comic-Con

When I arrived to check out the RAW Studios Panel, the brainchild of actor/writer/director Tom Jane and master illustrator Tim Bradstreet, I was a bit early and took a seat for the 10th Anniversary of something called Courtney Crumrin, which from what I could tell, was an innocent enough book as they talked about there being no real cursing, no sex, and a children friendly Victorian something or other. As they went on and as the RAW panel came closer and closer, the room got decidedly more rock and roll as guys dressed as The Punisher came in with girls in tight mini-dresses and the number of beards in the room roughly quintupled. Once our rough and tumble crowd of around 250 people took over the room, it was time for the RAW panel to begin – though some technical difficulties shifted the schedule around and we started with an announcement that the 1980’s anthology series Alien Worlds was being relaunched by the team, with master fantasy artist William Stout on board to rock out one of the first stories: Before & Afta, which will feature dinosaurs!

All the cool kids who are too cool for Comic-Con and all about trying to be cool by saying how not cool Comic-Con has become try to be cool by going to the cool comic area and buying cool things. Cool, right? But seriously, I always like to put the “comic” in Comic-Con and take a walk around the all the different comic vendors, big and small, and find cool stuff to buy. This year is no different and I found a few things that piqued my interest and raped my wallet. Have a peek into my barely literate world!

What to Expect at Comic-Con 2012

Check out a preview of what the Rejects will be up to this year at the San Diego Comic-Con, beginning with SDCC virgin Brian Salisbury… Having never been to Comic-Con, in fact having never before set foot in the state of California, I can’t help but feel a tinge of trepidation as I pack for San Diego. Chief among these concerns was whether I’d even get an adequate feel of the Con on my first outing as I darted from roundtable to roundtable, from press screening to blogger party. Would I leave my first Comic Con with no legitimate understanding of what keeps people coming back year after year? It was then I decided that, as a noob, it was best to experience the convention as a fan and not an industry professional. I needed to separate these two factions of my personality, to make a clean break from the behind-the-scenes journalism aspect and the intrepid geeks who walk the floor without the benefit of credentials. That’s when the idea of wearing a mask came into the picture, to disguise myself and resist the temptation of professional perks. I will walk the floors, stand in lines for panels in the various halls, and talk geek shop with the other attendees; providing journal entries for each day. This seems doubly fitting given the amount of cosplay that I’ve heard takes place at Comic Con. I will blend in even under fantastical vestments. So what character would I choose? What hero, outlaw, […]

Episode: “Even Steven or Luckiest Kid in Detroit” (Season 2, Episode 10) Synopsis: The second season comes to a close as Ray gets ready to bet (almost literally) the house on reuniting with Jessica and makes a decision on who’ll be his pimp in the future- if he sticks with the business. Review: The season finale of Hung went out firm in the knowledge that they’d be returning for a third season. Rather than wrap anything up or make an explosive exit, the show set up a lot of endings, but really didn’t bring forth any closure. If you’re looking for that, settle in for the long wait ’til season three.

Episode: “Fat Off My Love or I’m The Allergen” (Season 2, Episode 9) Synopsis: Ray is suddenly stuck between two angry lady pimps as Lenore accuses him of betraying her while Tanya, her actual betrayal widely known, snaps. Jessica probably still has feelings for Ray and Ronnie isn’t too happy to hear it. Review: I’ve got to admit, even though I’ve long asked for Tanya to get kicked off the show so Ray could get his screw on full time, I was a bit nervous as their relationship shattered. I guess I’m just used to her effeminate pimp style, though I still stand by the idea that her whiny, flower child personality is annoying and we (and Ray) could do much better.

Episode: “Third Base or The Rash” (Season 2, Episode 8) Synopsis: Ray considers playing in the Alumni game while Tanya’s double-dealing with “The White Whale” teeters on the edge of discovery. Ronnie and Jessica’s marriage develops a crack via a rash. Review: Hung is very lucky to have an actor as magnetic as Tom Jane in the lead role. By now you know we Rejects get at least half-hard-ons for Jane, but it is his presence alone that keeps me interested in this series when the show begins to falter. When he’s off-screen, I find myself likely to stare out the window. Or, at least, much of the time, though in the last few episodes Mike’s subplot about his quest for true love while Tanya play-pimps him out unbeknownst has been great.

Episode: “The Middle East is Complicated” (Season 2, Episode 7) Synopsis: Tanya gets more advice, and some compassion, from a real pimp while Ray searches for the secret to retaining clients without being attacked over his neutral view on Middle Eastern politics. Review: This episode started off on a most excellent note: a fully nude Lenore (Rebecca Creskoff). She was looking fantastic and not ashamed to strut around Ray’s burned out husk of a home showing it all. If they worked this into every episode, I’d be a happy man. The only thing that could improve upon that would be a nude neighbor Yael scene. She shows up, but fully clothed. You win some, you lose some.

Episode: “A Man, a Plan or Thank You, Jimmy Carter” (Season 2, Episode 5) Synopsis: Damon moves forward with his poetry slamming while Ray prepares for a date with the White Whale Tanya has finally convinced to partake in the service. Review: Could Damon and Darby be any creepier? I mean, jeepers creepers those two give me the willies. Damon’s poem about twins was the height of grossness. Now, I’m no twin and I get that there may be some sort of special relationship between them, but the stuff he was saying sounded more like he wanted to bone her than just hang out more often. Grossness.

Hung

Episode: “Sing it Again, Ray or Home Plate” (Season 2, Episode 4) Synopsis: Ray is increasingly weary of Lenore, who is holding court with Jessica trying to save her marriage – or so she says. Also completing Ray’s life is an increasing number of people become alerted to his strange schedules and trouble relating to his son, Damon. Review: Back a touch towards the depressing side after last week’s relatively uplifting episode, we still get some good stuff and even a sex scene. After all, Ray is a pimp, but a pimp that has less sex than most movie critics. Okay, that’s not true, we’re all virgins.

Hung

Episode: “Mind Bullets or Bang Bang Bang Bang Mother Fucker” (Season 2, Episode 2) Synopsis: The battle for pimp supremacy heats up as Tanya and Lenore battle it out for dominance in selling Ray’s privates to ladies. Complicating matters are Ray’s children, who are facing low self-esteem issues, and a co-worker of Tanya’s who demands free sex.
