I love the line at the end: “We have a Hulk”

New Hunger Games Trailer

The Hunger Games was such an enjoyable book. I’m looking forward to the movie but, I hope they keep it faithful to the book.

Thor Opens This Week

This summer there will be a bunch of comic and fanboy movies being released.  This week kicks off them all off with Thor. When I first saw still pictures of the Thor movie I was a bit put off but after viewing the trailer I think it may actually turn out pretty good.

The Walking Dead On AMC

Just when all my favorite shows have come to end or been canceled a glimmer of hope for a new favorite TV show comes along. Casting and shooting has begun for the television adaptation of The Walking Dead, a comic book by Robert Kirkman about life after a zombie apocalypse. At this point you may be rolling your eyes thinking this TV series will fail immediately, but The Walking Dead isn’t just another zombie story. It’s about people dealing with and surviving an unimaginable catastrophe. Zombies are just one of the many things have to live with while dealing with everyday life.

The Walking Dead revolves around many characters that come and go throughout the epic tale, but at the center is Rick Grimes a small-town police officer from Cynthiana, Kentucky who gets stuck down while on duty and wakes in a hospital all alone only to find out the something really bad has happened and there are zombies walking around.  The story continues as Rick sets out to find his wife Lori and son Carl.

One thing that is also pretty great about the television adaptation of The Walking  Dead is that Robert Kirkman, the author of the comic is a consultant for the television series.  I am hoping that the television story follows the comic story line pretty close.  The Walking Dead is scheduled to air on AMC in October of 2010.

Batman – City of Scars is a 30 minute fan made Batman movie about the Joker escaping Arkham Asylum and kidnapping a boy and his parents.  It’s up to Batman to rescue them.  The film made is by Bat In The Sun Productions cost a little over $27, 000 to make and took 21 days to shoot over a 16 month period.  Even though Bat In The Sun Productions is not allowed to make any money off the film it is certainly a nice way of showing what they are capable of.  Thank you Bat In The Sun Productions for this little gem while we all patiently wait for a third Batman film by Christopher Nolan.

Tron Legacy: This looks great but I’m on the fence as to if Disney is just cashing in on Tron fans or if this is going to be a good sequel. One of the best parts of Tron was the incredible effects it offered. We will have to see what the new Tron has to offer besides Disney 3D.

Astro Boy: What can I say besides it’s about time. Astro Boy came out in the 1960s as a cartoon and in the 1980′s as a comic book. Always fun, enjoyable and kid friendly!

terminator_the_sarah_connor_chroniclesNot sure if anyone else is watching Terminator The Sarah Conner Chonicles Fridays on Fox, but I am hooked on the show.  When I first heard they were turning the Terminator franchise into a TV show I thought it would be terrible.  All I could imagine was week after week of the Conners getting attacked by new terminators.  Turns out that they actually pulled off a great show.  With many plot lines going on at the same time and character developments that are shocking yet enjoyable the show has turned out to be great.  Now into the second season and ending soon I think, episode 21 jsut aired last week and 22 airs this week at 8pm EST.  One of my favorite characters is Cameron, played by Summer Glau who you might reconize from the show Firefly.  Cameron is a reprogrammed terminator sent back from the future to protect John Conner.  Lending from the S.M. Stirling Terminator books, Cameron is an infultrator model and thoughout the she shows human characteristics while posing as John’s sister and fighting off threats to the Conner family.

Goodbye Battlestar Galactica

Funny my last post was about Battlestar starting back up again.  Well last friday was the final episode of Battlestar Galactica.   I have to say I’m somewhat sad to see it end.  I know when it all started we were told that there was going to be a definite ending and at the time it was good to hear that the show would not linger on if it became popular.  During the airing they did show a commercial for another Battlestar mini-sereies that will give us all a glimpse of things from the Cylon perspective so I’m looking forward to that. All in all I was very pleased with the series as a whole.  Most series start to fizzle out or go off on some tangent that loses people after gaining popularity and momentum.  Thank you to all the everyone involved with making the show, it was a fun and enjoyable ride!
