Hey Everyone! Who remembers one of the best movies from the early 2001! The cheesy lines, or the ridiculously funny fashion or the fact you can’t turn left while watching in one the best comedies Ben Stiller (Zoolander) and Owen Wilson (Hansel) Teamed up on. Last time Zoolander was a very funny dim- witted successful for 3 times Fashion designers that made it big in the fashion world for the famous look of Blue Steel and Magnum and Hansel a rookie sensation that’s his competition. Other stars include (Christine Taylor) Matilda Jefferies which is trying to land her big break as a reporter. And of course one of the best villains Mugatu (Will Ferrell) who planned to brain wash Derreck into the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The first movie Ben Stiller was Directed and was involved in the screen play as well as and the story was done by Drake Sather and Ben Stiller. Many cameos included David Bowie, David Duchovny, Jon Voight, Donald Trump, Christian Slater and many more so I wander how many cameos will make an appearance in the sequel. Big hype on the internet is the sequel to the Zoolander right now the release date is set for February of 2016 The plot looks pretty decent as Dereck and Hansel are back into modeling and a company tries to take them out of business, interesting approach after years without a sequal.It will take place 10 years later story wise as Ben Stiller stated in an interview just recently. Currently they are filming in Rome for some of the new movie and recently took a break to and for some relax time and attended a charity dinner to support the children of Haiti very cool guys can’t wait to new news comes and how the film progress and see how the film finally turns out .Until next time This is your Lotus Comics Film Review! Cheers!


Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Review

Movie Review

 Running time 125 min.


Rated R

Universal Pictures

 Release Date 2-13-2015

Hey everyone what can you say about Fifty Shades of Grey. Well originally it was an erotic novel series by E.L James. It has elements of intense sexual practices involving bondage, disciplines as well as practicing sadism/masochism, not a kid kind of book, if you know I mean. The book series had originally sold 100 million nationwide including the U.K. which is pretty amazing. The book is a 3 part series and has been translated many times so getting the adaptation right for the audience, I would image, would be really hard to do, but I’m sure Director Sam Taylor Johnson already anticipates this to make sure the audience is happy with its success. There has been a confirmation that there will be 2 sequels, hopefully with the same actors. The cinematography was really out there and really explicit and I would remind everyone that because of the sexual content it is a great movie, however, I would not recommend anyone under 17 to see it .The thing I enjoyed the most was the character development and the story between the two characters was well done as well. Fifty Shades was a very dark and twisted in that sense and it was very intense to watch. All in all it was a great movie to watch and I would probably give a rating 3 out of 5 stars. Hats off guys, Great job!

Cosplayer: Lynda Carter Q&A

10624800_827284673990566_7034615266524251822_nWhat made you get into Cosplay?

The need to pay honor to the character to which I have identified with all my life.


Why did you choose Wonder Woman as your preferred costume?

It is really hard to be concise and precise. All my life, I dreamed of playing Wonder Woman. heroine who broke all the standards of beauty, and of the time. And she always represented the highest standards of ethics and morality. Perhaps, the opportunity to find myself.
mean, she has Latin blood — x- substance, as I say.

I’ve never seen the Wonder Woman COSPLAY as a costume for Halloween. Ijust came at a time in my life when I most needed it.


What goals and aspirations did you want to achieve when getting into Cosplay?

Using Cosplay is the easiest way to return to the past. For me it is the most perfect time machine. I like the sparkle in people‘s eyes when they recognize “Wonder Woman” whom they grew up with. Courage, humility, peace and an overwhelming happiness are the powers I get when I am Wonder Woman.


What is your opinion on the old-school Wonder Woman costume (the one Lynda Carter wore) compared to the new costume that will be in the 2016 Batman vs. Superman movie?

Times change, and we must always be open to reinvent ourselves.I just think that there are elements of the story that should be respected.


Who do you aspire to be in the midst of doing Cosplay at conventions?9467_791681704224475_6945352432121651249_n

never expect recognition or fame. Children are the ones who motivate me more. Children and my son are themselves the magic that drives me to attend each event. Allow people to relive moments from the past. They are my biggest award every year.


Do you have a favorite comic book? Besides Wonder Woman, of course!

The KingdomCome” by Alex Ross. It is a perfect piece of art, historyand illustration.


Who is the coolest person you’ve ever met at a convention?

Last ComicCon I attended, I met an excellent Cosplayer named Lilia Lemoine known as Lemon Lady. She is an excellent Cosplayer — but more importantly, she is human and charitable.


Which convention is your favorite that you have attended?

So far, in Colombia, we have only had two official versions of the ComicCon. For me, both were unique and memorable. I have also attended local events of equal or more importance. These events are where the foundation for the Cosplay culture is strengthened.


Do you do any costumes besides Wonder Woman?

Even though Wonder Woman is a character that has been and will remain my inspiration in everything that concerns over my life — there are characters like She-Hulk and She-ra that would like to explore.


Do you have any new costumes you’re planning to do soon? If so, what are they?

Coming Comiccon, my creation group and I will be working on doing special honor to Wonder Woman. For other events around country, I would like to take some risk and explore my artistic career as Cosplayer.


What is your view on Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman?

She is a very important icon in the history of the Wonder Woman. She has been her and still is even though now she is not playing this character. She left her personal mark on Wonder Woman.


Do you have any heroes that made you want to get into Cosplay?

Coming soon, She-ra and She-hulk


If you had to choose a superpower, what would you choose and why?

I wish I had more than just one power! But I think flying would be one that I would like most. mean that feeling of freedom must be unique.


Being that you’re from Colombia, how do you view Cosplay based on where you’re from?

Columbia is an amazing places our culture; our people I talk for mine. Medellin is an eternal place to dream of. I must be honest; it has been not easy. Many in here (and I’m sure in other places too don’t respect or they can’t see how wonderful can be one event like Comiccon or any fest like it. Being a Cosplayer is not a waste of time. Being a Cosplayer is just a way to be free and yourself.

Dumb and Dumber To Movie Review – James Peterson

Dumb and Dumber To

110 Minutes


“Something is missing”

By: James Peterson

“Hey… wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?”

That classic line, repeated for a generation, helped stamp 1994’s Dumb & Dumber into classic American

comedy. The movie, though crude at the time, was the directorial debut of the Farrelly Brothers, and

has kept audiences laughing for years since.

The log line for the original film was “For Harry and Lloyd, every day is a no-brainer.” And after raking in

nearly $250 million in revenue – we ALL knew there was going to be a sequel. It was a “no-brainer.”

Unfortunately, that sequel was a prequel. 2003’s Dumb and Dumberer – When Harry Met Lloyd, failed

to connect with the new audience and the difference in revenues were staggering – only $35 million in


So it was up to the Farrelly’s to rescue the situation, and bring back the original Harry and Lloyd (Jeff

Daniels and Jim Carrey). It took them nigh on twenty years to complete, but the finally delivered.

Or did they?

Some highlights of the first film:

-picking on the disabled/elderly

-journey to find a “lost” love

-road trip where they get turned around

-stuck in a case of mistaken identity

-bad guy gets killed

-large helping of crude humor

Now, highlights of Dumb and Dumber To:

-picking on the disabled

-journey to find a “lost” love

-road trip where they get turned around

-another case of mistaken identity

-bad guy gets killed

-extra large helping of crude humor

In the first film, it is easy to feel for the loveable losers; like they might do something to “totally redeem”

themselves, but in this iteration, Harry and Lloyd just seem beyond hope. They are too old, to idiotic –

to the point that they have only gotten MORE crude and pathetic. While Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey

reprise their roles spot-on, their hijinks don’t resonate anymore. I came away wondering how much

better this movie *might* have been if this were made 10 years ago instead of Dumb and Dumberer.

In all, the escapades of Harry and Lloyd are funny – and predictable – will leave you laughing your ass off

while fighting back a tear. So if you want to hear the most annoying sound in the world – again – check

out Dumb and Dumber To.
