It’s JULY!! And as always July is the one month each year the Movie Issues guys devote to one of their favorite actors. This year the guys are giving it up to the one, the only, the original science fiction badass: Sigourney Weaver. From fighting aliens and ghost or just being one cool chick in movies, she really has done it all and with a old Hollywood style. So this month is all about Saint Sigs of the Weave! First up one of her comedies, we give you the 2001 comedy Heartbreakers. Weaver plays a con artist along with her daughter, Jennifer Love Hewitt. Conning their way all the way to the bank. Please download and enjoy the month with us as we give all the love the Weaver! Read On
We are currently experiencing the Golden Age of Geek, where you can literally turn on almost any channel and get some high quality sci-fi, fantasy or even comic book TV shows. I can tell you, it didn’t always used to be that way.
Growing up there was the big two — Star Trek and Star Wars. The Trek you could find almost anywhere on TV, while Next Generation is still one of my favorite shows everyone was hoping for another Star Wars. There was one sanctuary, a channel called Sci Fi (before it turned into SyFy) and it played the classic science fiction; Buck Rogers, Lost in Space, Twilight Zone and the all time classic Battlestar Galactica. While I was aware of the series there’s a big difference to actually watching it.
Once again it’s a nerd’s favorite problem: how to fit in all the San Diego Comic-Con panels you want to see and still have time to get cosplay photos, buy decorations for your personal Starbase, and maybe remember to eat something.
The following panels are a teeny percentage of the ones I thought looked cool. (The full schedule is here.) Some of them have time conflicts, so I’ll either have to make a decision, or race from one to the other as fast as Security will let me go. I’ve got my running shoes, someone distract the guards…
This week we’re ditching the formula and just rambling some rambles, since a new Night Vale episode dropped (*checks watch*) yesterday, which didn’t leave us enough time to listen to it, record a recap, and post it without the aid of a TARDIS or Time Turner. (If you know where we can rent one, please leave a message in the comments. We will worship you if we get one.)
So instead, we have a quick talk about how San Diego Comic-Con starts up in one week, some Convention tips, what we’ve got planned, what we hope to see, and how many Welcome To Night Vale cosplay photos we want to take. (Answer: all of them. Please let us know if you’ll be there in your Night Vale cosplay, we really want to get your photo.)

It’s been three years since Magic Mike crawled across a movie theater screen and into your panties. Now after a long, hard wait the next chapter for the Kings of Tampa has come back to those screens today, in Magic Mike XXL.
When the first Magic Mike came out I admit that I was intrigued. Male strippers? Channing Tatum dancing in a g-string? Matthew McWhat’sHisFace in a tiny banana hammock? I was sold before the first trailer even hit.
What I thought I was going to see was a light hearted movie about strippers. For me, the original MM suffered from an identity crisis; I was never sure if it wanted to be a dark and artsy drama or if it was supposed to be the Showgirls for, well, girls. Luckily, Magic Mike XXL has definitely surpassed my admitedly low expectations for a sequel.
This Fourth of July weekend you have many movie choices. You could take the family to enjoy Inside Out, or run from dinosaurs again with Jurassic World. Hell, get your girls or guys together and go watch Channing shake his ass once again in Magic Mike XXL. Or, what you should do, is go fight for the future once more with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator Genisys. The new trend is the reboot-quel, the awkward new movie creature that resembles the movies we’ve loved. Resurrecting characters, catchphrases, and plots to lure us in. This new iteration annihilates all previous story threads with a bit (or a bunch) of time travel, so it can weave its own stories, unencumbered, and adding younger, sexier stars. Some are good, most are really bad, but for Terminator Genisys, it is a great welcome back to the franchise, giving it new life, kicking ass, and blowing everything up along the way.
This week the crew talks about some DC books..that they actually enjoyed! It’s the end times!! But seriously, DC had a couple decent ones this week. After that they mention books from Image, and Boom! (and Marvel of course), so they’re all over the place this episode. (This week’s header image is from Image’s Mythic #2, artwork by John McCrea.)
Also, San Diego Comic-Con 2015 begins in one week! Make sure to check in with pixelatedgeek.com every day, we’ll have continuing coverage of panels, exclusives, off-site events, cosplay, and more!
Street Fighter V is the latest title in Capcom’s iconic fighting game franchise. As of yet the time in which the game takes place hasn’t been confirmed, but it definitely appears as though it takes place after Street Fighter VI. Main stays like Ryu and Chun-Li return in this iteration of the game as well as a few other familiar faces from previous Street Fighter titles. At E3 2015, I had the chance to play Street Fighter V for about thirty minutes. Although thirty minutes is a relatively short amount of time to really nail down the mechanics of Street Fighter V, I did walk away from the experience satisfied. Hit the jump for my full hands on impressions of Street Fighter V. Read On
