Gamora Hot Toys Figure Is The Green Goddess Capt. Kirk Always Wanted

So J.J. Is Directing Star Wars. First Lense Flare Joke Gets Punched In The Throat.

i

Alright here we go. Now Star Wars Episode VII is really real.

Yesterday’s announcement of J.J. Abrams as director of the next story in the Star Wars saga came with a general amount of surprise by most. So many directors have been mentioned (by me also) as possible candidates including Matthew Vaughn, Steven Spielberg, Jon Favreau and even Ben Affleck were in the running. But here is my official statement on Lucasfilm hiring Abrams to take over the world of lightsabers and breathing machines.

THANK GOD.

Look, a lot of directors could have worked well with the new Star Wars film if the script turns out to be very good. I especially would have loved Matthew Vaughn’s take on it but Abrams doing this gives me a general sense of hope and excitement. The guy helped create Alias, Lost and Fringe. He has directed the best Mission: Impossible (M:I 3), the wonderful Super 8 and took the Star Trek franchise and breathed new life into it and made it relevant for a new generation. The man has one damn impressive resume. You can not deny it.

There are rumors out there that the new flick may have a female lead and that some have been pushing for Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz to star. If any of this is true I will be a happy camper. We have had six movies of male leads, how awesome would it be to have a kick ass female Jedi on screen (ahhh Mara Jade).

So to recap, nice job Lucasfilm. The weight of nerd worry has lifted a bit from my shoulders. Now let’s make a damn Star Wars movie!

Check Out My Review For Looper

I recently watched Looper and my review is up for consuming by your eye holes over on NerdRating.com. It is one of the most unique time travel movies made and should easily make its way to any sci-fi fans collection.

It’s Like I Am Only Here To Post Darth Vader Videos

When you find something good you might as well keep going till folks hate you.

Don’t worry, I am sure this is almost the end of the Darth Vader dubbed over voice video craze. Then again, if I keep finding ones like this Schwarzenegger voiced Vader one, this blog may become a one trick pony. That is assuming I even have a trick to begin with.

Darth Vader Say What?

Sometimes the simplest ideas turn out to be the best. After watching this video let’s see if you were like me and laughed a little bit more than you thought you would when the video began. Darth Vader is a bit hard of hearing and that’s it. No witty explanation needed. If this is the Vader we get in the new trilogy, I wouldn’t be opposed.

Django Unchained Review

Django Unchained got reviewed by a lucky guy known as me over on NerdRating.com

Go check out my review and let me know if you agree or disagree and let me know your thoughts on Taratino’s latest. The easiest way I can describe it (from my review) is that it is like Blazing Saddles and Pulp Fiction had a lively, witty kid.

What is real?

What is Recall?

Does the three breasted chick show her jugs? (Yes, she does)

Is this movie any good?

Be sure and check out my review for Total Recall over on NerdRating.com.

I mean Beckinsale and Biel are in it so it has to be a 4/10 right off the bat just for those four, I mean two reasons. Only place to go is up.

Check This Out: Star Wars Sequel Debacle Simulatron

I would like to share with you what has taken up my entire morning and will most likely take up my entire holiday vacation. The Star Wars Sequel Debacle Simulatron The basic idea of this very simple but insanely fun program is you pick your writer, director and star of the next Star Wars movie then pick a title and how much action, romance, etc. then the program gives you a grade and written blurb about the movie and how much your Star Wars flick would make.

For example here is my first flick I did:
Writer- Kevin Smith
Director- JJ Abrams
Star- Nathan Fillion
Grade- B-
Gross- 330 million domestic

Shit this is seriously fun. Try not to lose tons of time with this. Be sure and post your hits and flops in the comments. Let’s compare!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review

Hello fellow Middle-Earth-ers? Middle-Earth-ians? Dammit….hey Hobbit fans my review for our first of three return trips to Middle-Earth is now up for your viewing pleasure. Give it a read and let me know what you though about the movie and if the changes made were welcome ones or did it seem like filler material?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review

Hey, It’s The New Man Of Steel Trailer. Let’s Have A Look.

Excuse me for a moment………gotta wait for this to go away……

Look, Zack Snyder gets a lot of shit and a lot of it is not deserved. I love how everyone absolutely loves 300 but says that Snyder is a shitty director. Let’s face it, he has only tripped up once in his directorial career. The Dawn of the Dead remake was good, 300 was great and Watchmen proved that the “unfilmable” graphic novel could be made into a great movie. So I can forgive him for Sucker Punch (which I never thought was as bad as people said). But I digress.

Man of Steel trailer. Now haters are always going to try to nitpick every single thing but I’ll be damned if this trailer isn’t beautiful and get a whole lot accomplished in two and a half minutes.

First off, Henry Cavill (in costume) is fu**ing Superman. I have always liked the new costume because of the New 52 look to it. At the halfway point in the trailer when he leaves the fortress and flies up (who did this music BTW, amazing) into the sky it was over. This movie should be on every nerd’s must watch list.

Second, we only get a quick glimpse of Michael Shannon’s Zod but he certainly has the right look and it appears that Supes will be fighting an interstellar force by the end of the preview. I am seeing a whole lot of Mark Waid’s Birthright story here and that is a great thing.

The entire first part of the preview is Ma and Pa (mostly Ma) giving Clark advice. We don’t see a whole lot of Amy Adam’s Lois but there is plenty of time left before the June release date to show her off more. This trailer needed to hit all the right notes especially being shown in front of The Hobbit this weekend because a very large audience is going to be watching.

Bring your doubts, your Zack Snyder hate. I will be waiting on June 14 when this movie turns out to be the Superman movie this generation has been waiting on.
