Last month we spotlighted 2nd Serve, which you can watch for free on Snag Films. From romantic comedies to b-sci-fi, the free movie site has a lot of variety. Today we are spotlighting Dragon Wasps, a movie by Joe Knee that stars Corin Nemec, Dominika Juillet, Nikolette Noel, and Benjamin Easterday. As you can imagine, the 2012 movie was a SyFy flick and seems to completely fit their mold.
Giant killer wasps. I’m totally down.
Official Description: Entomologist Gina Humphries goes searching for her lost father in the jungles of Belize with the help of U.S. soldiers. When they get caught in the crossfire of a guerrilla army controlled by a mystical warlord, the army takes them hostage. The guerrilla army and the captive group of soldiers must band together though, when a horde of giant dragon wasps attack them as their survival depends on each other.
This week we’re going to spotlight issues from the big two. Marvel Comics launches their big line-wide summer crossover Secret Wars, and DC continues blending pre-52 with the new 52 with “Convergence”.

Independent horror movie The Eve has released an all new scene online. A shower scene featuring Maria DiDomenico that pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. The movie pays homage to a number of classic horror movies, including Jaws and Friday the 13th. The Eve is currently available on VOD though iTunes, VUDU, Playstation, and Xbox. The independent horror movie was produced by eBass Entertainment and distributed by Indie Rights Movies and Cinedigm.
Description: Friends head off to the remote island of Martha’s Vineyard to celebrate New Year’s Eve and reconnect. As tensions rise, an unforeseen presence halts celebrations and instead turns their holiday into a fight to live through to the new year. The movie stars Al Thompson (The Cleveland Show, A Walk to Remember), Evan Bass (We Need Girlfriends), María DiDomenico (Game Time), and Miranda Wilson (As the World Turns).

One of the best things about the web is being able to find new (and sometimes obscure) movies that are streaming online for free (ad supported, but that’s no biggie). These movies are a mix of indies and the type of movies that you might have found in the dollar bin back in the 90s.
2nd Serve belongs to the second category; it stars a mix of actors that you’ll recgonize, but might not know the names of, it has a goofy but enjoyable plot, and an extra cheesy poster.
Official Description: When former tennis pro Owen “Game Set” Match (Josh Hopkins, TV’s Cougar Town) gets fired from his cushy job at the affluent Fountain Club, he’s forced to take a position at the not-so-posh public courts of the Derby City Recreation Center. There, he contends with his new co-workers, a ragtag group of tennis misfits; his boss, single mom Sherry (Alexie Gilmore, World’s Greatest Dad); and her son Jake (Cameron Monaghan, TV’s Shameless), a teenaged goth and secret tennis hopeful. Slowly Owen wins over his colleagues, mends his broken friendships, helps Jake fix his serve, and even makes a love connection with Sherry. But just when things are looking up, Owen’s former boss and court nemesis challenges the rec center to a showdown in the annual Combo Cup tournament. As he leads his team of oddball amateurs, Owen learns the most valuable lesson of all: on the court or off, everyone deserves a second chance. A raucous sports comedy in the tradition of Caddyshack, 2ND SERVE co-stars Sam McMurray (Raising Arizona, Christmas Vacation), Kevin Sussman (TV’s Ugly Betty, Hitch) and Guillermo Díaz (TV’s Weeds and Scandal).
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly we have our first look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and I have to say, he looks fantastic in the role. When they initially announced Eisenberg I was surprised and my first reaction was that it wouldn’t work. But as time has passed, I’ve grown more and more in support of the choice and I think he has the chops (and now the look) to knock it out of the park.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder states that Eisenberg’s Luthor is not “…any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure.” As much as I love Hackman and pushed for Spacey, neither was nearly as brutal, blood thirsty, cunning, or evil as Luthor should be. Both were a mix of real estate mogul and comedic relief. I have high hopes that Snyder will take us far from the theatrical Luthor’s of the past and pull more from the comics.
We already know that the superhero team up/fight will bring together Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), with a strong rumor pointing to us also seeing the Flash (Ezra Miller). That is a lot of heroes for Luthor to deal with, will he have any other DC villains on his side? We are exactly a year before the movie’s release on March 25, 2016, so I have a feeling that we’ll be learning a lot more soon.
How do you feel about the look of Eisenberg’s Luthor? Think he can stack up to past Luthors Gene Hackman, Kevin Spacey, and Michael Rosenbaum?
