Say "CHEEEEESE"

SAN RAFAEL, CA, May 5, 2009 – Telltale and Aardman are announcing the release of The Last Resort, the latest of four monthly Wallace & Gromit games that open up the world of West Wallaby Street like never before. “The Last Resort” is available today for PC from www.telltalegames.com as part of the Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures series. The games will also be coming soon to Xbox LIVE® Arcade.

Telltale’s Wallace & Gromit games are like interactive films, with humorous storylines and creative characters conceived in collaboration with Aardman’s award-winning team. In the new episode, Wallace and Gromit’s Blackpool holiday is rained out, so the enterprising inventor and his clever dog bring the beach to their basement with the construction of West Wallaby Waterworld, a makeshift resort complete with sun, sand, and Wallace’s homemade boardwalk attractions. Keeping their guests satisfied turns out to be tricky business, particularly after one is thumped on the head by an unknown assailant. Everyone is a suspect! Now Wallace and Gromit must work together to finger the culprit, with a little help from Wallace’s latest invention: the Deductomatic.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine – REVIEW

X-Men Origins: Wolverine – REVIEW

X-Men Origins: Wolverine had a lot of shitty Tweets: everything from “Wolverine sucked!” to “Wolverine wasn’t half bad.”  Granted, I went into the movie thinking that it was, indeed, going to suck. I assumed it would be another one of those unbalanced movies where storyline overwhelms the action, romance overwhelms the character development, titties overwhelm the… well, you can never have enough titties.

Surprisingly, I kind of liked the film. There were a couple of areas that definitely needed improvement (i.e. casting Will.I.Am), but it was a good mix of story and action. You would learn about something, then see action. And so on. However, the character development of each mutant was very weak. The movie did a poor job at explaining where each mutant was coming from and things felt unfinished.

If you’re not doing well in our current economy, save your money and wait for it when it comes to iTunes rental: it’s not really worth the popcorn money.

Cast members, writers, producers, directors, and the composer from NBC’s Chuck came together to thank their fans for rallying behind the show and encourage them to watch the season finale, airing Monday, April 27th on NBC. Save Chuck, watch the show and DVR the rest!

As fans (that’s you and me!) of NBC’s critically acclaimed show Chuck continue to rally behind the show and ask NBC for a third season, a star-studded lineup from the cast and creative team came together to thank the fans for their efforts on Chuck vs. the Podcast leading up to the season finale, airing Monday, April 27th. From London, New York, Toronto, and Los Angeles, they were all eager to reach out and share their gratitude for the fan campaigns, excitement about the finale, and passion for the show.

“The grassroots campaigns to save Chuck have been nothing short of remarkable,” says series lead Zachary Levi, calling from London. “It means so much to know that the fans are doing so much to keep the show on the air.”

Adam Baldwin, who plays gruff Colonel John Casey, expresses his gratitude as well. “I think the campaign by the fans for the renewal is very helpful, and I appreciate all the support that’s out there.”

The cast and creative team gave a few clues about what to expect in the season finale as well, promising an episode that will thrill fans and whet appetites for a third season.

“It’s going to be epic,” promises Joshua Gomez, who plays Morgan Grimes. “Whether you’ve been watching the whole time or not, you’re going to get your money’s worth. I think people are going to be really excited when they see it.”

“The finale is going to be a game changer,” teases Ryan McPartlin, aka Captain Awesome. “The finale is going to get the fans’ mouths watering for a third season.” McPartlin also discusses his excitement at fan reaction for the penultimate episode of Chuck, and how he plans to join the fans in the campaign for a third season.
