You heard that right! In Archie #600, Archie Andrews proposes to Veronica Lodge. Not a dream! Not a hoax! Not an imagina – no, wait, it IS an imaginary story! From Newsarama: Now make way for this special story that takes a look at Archie and his friends after they graduate college! What careers will …
Mary Poppins vs Cthulu Who would you choose? I have an idea for Anthony Fremont (from the Twilight Zone) vs the Tick more info here: Anyone have any matchups of their own?
The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, which contains both the titular game and its precursor, 2004′s Escape From Butcher Bay, goes a long way to addressing and, for the most part, improving, the various beefs I have with the genre that is my least favourite and yet the most popular among my “demographic”, …
I’m referring of course to the 80s TV movie/TV series, not the Alan Moore Film. Here are some stills:
If Gorilla City from Flash comic books really does exist in our universe, and it’s the size of Topeka, KS, then we had better watch out for Gorilla Grodd! Bob and Brian cover this story.
The latest direct-to-video DCU Trailer is up on YouTube. An adaptation of the first arc of Jeph Loeb & Ed McGuMcGuinness’ Superman/Batman monthly. Superman/Batman: Public Enemies Trailer I’m amazed at how well they’ve brought McGuinness art style to the screen. Marvel & DC have both promised in the DTV movies that they will bring us …
One-hit deaths. Fiendish-but-fair level design. Spikes. Lasers. Robots. Isn’t that what action gaming is really about? You’ll find all five of these must-have elements in RUN JUMP, the new platformer from, um, me. RUN JUMP is platforming reduced to its simplest and purest elements– there’s no story, no weapons, no power-ups. Just moving from one …
AOL has a piece on the Star Trek casts then and now. Levar Burton is podcasting and you can follow him on Twitter? I don’t know if that’s cool or sad.
Big Lost finale was tonight. I just knew they’d leave us hanging on something for another year. SPOILERS One odd bit. The Comicon Season 6 teaser video of Dr. Chang acknowledging President Bush and the Internet in 1977 did not get addressed this year. In fact, I don’t even see how it can have happened …
Open thread: What are your thoughts on the new Star Trek movie?
All this struggling with the poor quality of my podcast recordings… could it really be that my Microsoft LifeChat LX-2000 microphone headset just really sucks? Tonight, I plugged in a headset that my team uses at work, and it sounds nice. Well, dang. I feel like a doofus. Podcast, coming up! And the next one …
In just a few days, J.J. Abrams launches his new “Kirk and Uhura’s Infinite Playlist” movie, and I am forced to admit that the Onion video I linked a few days ago was pretty much about me. This new movie is about a car-stealing reprobate who gets challenged to enter Starfleet and he makes it …
It is a sign of a great movie that I love it despite the massive hippie-ness that infests the plot. Star Trek IV is a great movie. If they needed to go back in time to fight Gorn Marines to save San Fransisco hippies to insure the future… it really wouldn’t change the fact that …
So in tribute:
From the Onion News Network: “Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As ‘Fun, Watchable’“
Without even looking beyond the title, I can name 10 women who HAVE to be on this list: Lynda Carter Barbara Feldon Raquel Welch in the fur bikini and/or swimsuit Lucy Lawless Nichelle Nichols Yvonne Craig Julie Newmar Michelle Pfeiffer Carrie Fisher Margot Kidder (even with the crazy) Teri Hatcher (even with the crazy) Probably …
