Movie Issues: The Faculty

This week the guys go back to school with Robert Rodríguez’s 1998s sci-fi horror flick, The Faculty. The teenage version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers mixed with some of The Thing. What we get is a rather fun creature feature with tons and tons of actors who have gone on to become huge stars. Over all a pretty fun flick. The guys also talk Star Wars and more dumping on WB and their “plan” for DC Comic films. Just another average week.  Read On

The Final Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Trailer Revealed

Posted by: |

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain marks the last time we’ll ever see a Metal Gear Solid game helmed by series creator Hideo Kojima.  Despite the now legendary falling out between Kojima and Konami, Kojima was at least allowed to make the final trailers himself. As such, the final trailer for The Phantom Pain is no exception to Kojima’s genius. It is a masterful piece of work that traverses the main line of Metal Gear Solid games (so essentially every game that is considered canon) which not only shows Big Boss’s progression from hero to villain, but even touches on the fate that Solid Snake narrowly avoided. But, in any case, I’ve rambled on far too long about the trailer, hit the jump to see it for yourself! Read On

Introduce The DC Universe – The Family Friendly Way

After a grueling day at work you return home. You are exhausted and all you really want to do is relax, then you feel the tug at your shirt. Your kid then asks one of the greatest questions possible “Da da, can we watch Batman?”

While the instant answer is yes, I then have to ponder the question: Which Batman should I allow my kid to watch. While there are certainly plenty of DC Animated options – there are fewer options in the Family Friendly version. You certainly wouldn’t want to pop on Batman vs Robin or Batman: Under the Red Hood. Luckily DC Animated and Warner Bros has heard the call and has some pretty decent options.

Review: PS3 – J-Stars Victory Vs

Back in the day before the wide spread access to Anime, there were very few places to get your fix – let alone very few series you could watch. Let’s break it down: Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z and Ghost in the Shell.  Now I had somehow gained access to the Dark Horse version of the Ghost in the Shell Manga, and desperately wanted to watch the movie. So desperate in fact, that I somehow convinced my mother into picking me up the movie. She had now idea what she was buying and even was more shocked when we sat down as a family to watch the movie. To her credit she watched it, I think she liked more then Akira

Fast forward a couple of years and Anime has taken off. Might have been the whole Yu Gi Oh phenomenon but during this time there was a magazine debuting in the states for the first time called Shonen Jump. Now at this point in my Otaku-ism I had already ventured to the Japanese Marketplace and had picked up the Japanese version of Shonen Jump on more then one occasion. Even going so far as to pick up Jump Superstars Video game on the Nintendo DS. It was an instant hit for me – but I wanted more… To be a tad specific I wanted a little more variety.

Enter the world of J-Stars Victory Vs which sold me with two characters: Kenshiro (Fist of the North Star) and Jonathan Joestar (Joe Joe’s Bizarre Adventure). What promised to be a smorgashbord of Anime characters mixed with a brawling style fight engine. Was this the ultimate Anime cross over?

Review: The Dark Forest

Review: The Dark Forest

     The universe is a dark forest…

The second book in Cixin Liu’s “Three Body” trilogy picks up right where the first one left off, with the Trisolaran fleet making its way to Earth to wipe out humanity. The sophons – undetectable Trisolaran multi-dimensional computers surrounding the planet – have permanently sabotaged all high-energy physics experiments, guaranteeing that Earth’s technology will never progress to the level of Trisolaris. Earth now has the impossible job of trying to defeat an unbeatable enemy that won’t even arrive for four centuries. And the sophons can see everything that happens on Earth, meaning the Trisolarans and their human collaborators will know humanity’s defense strategies almost as soon as they’re created.

Almost. There’s still one kind of plan that can be kept a secret from the invaders: a plan that doesn’t even exist except in the mind of the person who creates it.  Read On
