A patriotic Captain America: The Winter Soldier spot; a villain packed Amazing Spider-Man 2 ad, and a reveal of Grimlock and Galvatron in Transformers Age of Extinction made the Super Bowl a very geeky time… for 30-seconds… every half hour or so.
With Bryan Singer currently working and tweeting away about his newest X-Men epic “Days of Future Past” based (loosely it seems) on Chris Claremont’s famous 1981 storyline, it feels like Hugh Jackman’s second solo outing is a bit dwarfed by next year’s towering Sentinels. I may be the only one who wanted this Japanese story to be a direct sequel to the 2009 Origins film, so I was surprised when it started looking like a direct sequel to X3. But the need for it to be a prequel to Days of Future Past is understandable, considering the fact that Logan is replacing Kitty as the main character in Bryan Singer’s take on Days of Future Past.
Needless to say, watching Hugh Jackman tear apart a bunch of overmatched human samurai sure does look like wacky fun!
Tony Stark returns to his life after the events of the Avengers, but things aren’t quite the same when The Mandarin comes calling on Iron Man. As the Marvel cinematic universe grows in Phase 2, it’ll be more and more interesting to see the reasons our heroes come together in movies like Avengers but stay separate in their stand alone films, and this is the first chance to see just how Marvel does it.
Well, this is it, kiddies… unless SyFy has a change of heart, this is the last we’ll see of Young Adama and a shiny new Battlestar named Galactica. We enjoyed Blood & Chrome, warts and all, and as much as we’d love to see the continuing adventures of Husker, we can see how SyFy didn’t have the kind of faith in this pilot as they did in the original BSG mini-series. What did you think? Let us know!
Be sure you’ve seen the FINAL instalment of Blood & Chrome before you hit play on this SPOILER-ridden BSGcast! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mH8EDRptVAQ
The penultimate pair of Blood & Chrome webisodes have been released, and it seems this resort planet is no vacation… unless you count the recreational activities that Husker and the Doctor find themselves up to. Plus, we get our first real glimpse of the CHROME that the title has been promising, and Centurion version 1.5 is definitely a sight to behold!
If you haven’t seen webisodes 7 & 8 yet, catch them right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNHMfK65mnU
Wow… what a waste of time.
It takes 3 entire hours to piss on Batman Begins, No Man’s Land, Knightfall, Knightquest and Knightsend. PLUS Batman only shows up twice in it… and we’re just warming up! Watch the review to get Matt’s entire tirade.

Matt brings on guest Puppetry expert Brian Hogg, founder of Hoggworks, to review Jason Segel’s new instalment to the well loved (and recently poorly handled) Muppet franchise! Since these are two children of the 80′s talking about what a child of the 80′s did with their childhood friends, it could get messy. And long.
The Geekiest movie of the year? Quite possibly.
If you were born in the 70′s or 80′s, the Muppets are as much a part of your childhood as the Transformers, Arnie, MJ, Voltron and G.I.Joe combined.
So when Jason Segel and Disney team up to bring back some of entertainment’s most adored characters, the 7-year old geek inside us all stirs and we can’t quite explain it, but we get a little bit misty eyed at the sight of a felt frog, a blonde pig, and a bear with whoopie cushions.
An best of all, there’s no reimagining, no CG puppets and no bad surgery. They all look exactly the way we remember.
These little fellas have skipped an entire generation, but now is the time for people of all ages to enjoy Henson’s genius on the big screen.
Right where they belong.
