2019 Phoenix Fan Fusion

Image result for phoenix fan fusion




Prepare yourself Phoenix! Fan Fusion is coming! Thousands of fanatics from all walks of life are about to invade the streets of downtown in hopes to mingle and celebrate all things fandom. With a little over a week to go from this year Phoenix Fan Fusion, taking place May 23-26, final preparations are taking place.  From artists to actors and cosplayers to gamers, you are pretty much guaranteed to see something that will put a smile on your face.


Every year this event seems to get bigger than the previous year with different big names actors brought in for meet and greets/photo ops along with the brilliant minds behind our favorite comic books and stories, the four-day event always has something going on for everyone.  This years biggest actors include Jeff Goldblum, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Summer Glau, John Barrowman, Catherine Tate, Elijah Wood, Matthew Lewis and many more. If the comics are more your speed, don’t you worry, they’ve got some pretty great artists coming as well like Neal Adams, Kevin Eastman, Joe Staton, Joel Gomez, Seanan McGuire, James C. Mulligan, Dennis O’Neil… honestly the list just keeps going. The great thing with the artists though, most of them have tables on the exhibitor floor, so if you aren’t able to make it to a panel to see them, they are usually pretty accessible at their tables. Side note, if you have a favorite comic or print from any of them, bring it! They will most likely sign it for you and usually will have a pretty decent conversation with you at the same time. 

Along with appearances, there are also panels. SO MANY PANELS!!! There is pretty much a panel for everything… like almost everything. Make sure you check out the schedule to see if there are any workshops or celebrity panels you want to attend and set a reminder to make sure you don’t miss it. The panels are a great opportunity for fans to ask questions and learn new things, also they are a great chance to sit down for an hour or so and relax. To top it off, panels are also a great way to meet other fans who maybe in the same fandoms as you, which honestly is one of the best parts of these cons. 


Also, don't be afraid to venture outside of the con. Many restaurants and stores have sales and specials to go along with the Con. Plus, there are usually food trucks and possibly local breweries and other drink specials. 

It wouldn’t be fair to not issue a couple warnings for this event as well. Sounds scary right, but be prepared. Like actually be prepared. This event is huge! So bring those walking shoes because you are going to be using them! Also, hydration! It’s very important everyone. We are in a desert and this event has the unbelievable habit of landing on one of the hottest weekends of the year. Be patient, there are going to be lines. Take the opportunity to strike up a conversation or maybe post some of those pictures you've been taking, it will honestly make it feel like the line is moving faster. 

Last, but not least, have fun. Everyone is here to have a good time and for the most part everyone acts that way. This very large group of people might very well be the nicest mob of people you will ever encounter. So if you see some thing you like, stop and talk about it.  If it’s something at a booth for sale, talk to the artist/maker. They might even have something else you might like more. If you see a cosplay you think is great, let them know. Most will even take pictures with you, but remember, Cosplay is not consent! On that note, see you all next week!

"Darkest Hour" - Movie Review

Germany is advancing its forces across Western Europe. Belgium is about to fall and the French are about to surrender. Concern is mounting in the United Kingdom that Hitler’s Nazi forces are positioning themselves to cross the divide and begin bombing runs on the Island. The fate of the Kingdom is looking grim and a newly appointed Prime Minister has the weight of Western Europe on his shoulders. So, does “The Darkest Hour” paint an accurate picture of Churchill’s life in this dark time or should we abandon this film? Let’s dive in and take a look in this review.


This is the third film in a years time that examines the events leading up to, beyond or singularly Dunkirk and World War 2. Two of the three films examine the appointment of Winston Churchill while the other examines what life on the beaches of Dunkirk must have been like during that time of war. All three films have a different approach to how the story is told but each enjoyable for that specific reason. I can say this as I have seen and reviewed all three films (Churchill, Dunkirk and Darkest Hour).



Gary Oldman deserves all the high praise he has received for his portrayal of Churchill. He delivers a performance that is a complete transformation into his role. Unlike the movie “Churchill” this film looks more at the human side of Winston and how its no simple task to be the voice of opposition as a leader whose leadership abilities are already in question before even having accepted the role of Prime Minister. It’s clear from the beginning that the parties and the King of England are all hesitant in the decision to bring Churchill to the valued and important role of Prime Minister. In fact, he is not their first choice in the decision to replace the current Prime Minister and they explain why. So we get a clear sense of who he is before we meet him and a glimpse at why he comes across as bullish or unflexable.



The supporting cast in this film does well enough to seem believable without overshadowing Oldman’s performance. Ben Mendelsohn as the King came across as determined, thoughtful and understanding. Lily James has once again delivered a performance that was enchanting. Her role as Churchill’s personal assistant was believable and the emotion that she delivers on screen added much to the moments she shares with Oldman. Overall, the roles that everyone had to play they did a fine job with. If any two actors stood out, it was Oldman and James.



Darkest Hour” is playing in theaters now! I am definitely recommending a big screen viewing of this film. While you could easily skip this film until it’s available on DVD/BLU-Ray and get just as much from the story, you would miss out on the opportunity to talk about the importance of the story, Winston Churchill, and how well shot this movie was. Director Joe Wright did a great job slowing moving in and backing away from characters using just the right amount of speed on the camera. The color pallets used to help emphasize the mood of each scene was also very enjoyable. This is a dramatic story that looks at humans as fallible, passionate, determined, intelligent, caring and more. So much of the human experience is wrapped up in each of these characters as they contemplate what it would mean to surrender to the Nazi’s or fight until all lives have been lost. Go see this film!
