THE HERALD OF GALACTUS #2: Marvel’s Ultimates, Flashpoint controversey, the Governator, X-Men: First Class

DC Comics look like they are going down the same route as Marvel this September, when they reboot their whole line back to issue one. Marvel recently announced the complete overhaul of their Ultimates universe for the second time. They are streamlining these titles down to four: Ultimate Spider-Man, Ultimate X-Men, The Ultimates and Ultimate Hawkeye (yeah, the last one […]

MOVIE ROUND-UP: The Avengers, Seth Rogen in 50/50, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Total Recall, Django Unchained

Spoilers beware! A villain for Marvel’s superhero team-up has been revealed. Or, to be more precise, heavily speculated. It is well-known that Thor‘s Loki will be the central antagonist (likely using the Cosmic Cube to bring forth alien race the Skrulls). But Latino Review are saying that the Avengers will also do battle with Thanos, the “Mad Titan”, who uses […]

George Lucas is too cheap to make that Star Wars TV show

George Lucas is too cheap to make that Star Wars TV show

Do you want, or need, more adventures in a galaxy far, far away? The prequels have had their fair share of put-downs, and it’s reached the point where making jokes at their expense is somewhat futile. They were rotten. What’s done is done. With the Blu-Rays on the horizon, a potential cinema re-release on the cards (in 3D, no less), […]

Trailer Trash #2: Killer Condom (1996)

God bless Troma. Only they would have the balls to distribute a film named Killer Condom. What else do you really need to know? It’s all in the title. There’s condoms…and they kill people. Or as the Trailer Guy puts it, “the rubber that rubs you out!” Before you start laughing uncontrollably, bear in mind that this German production has […]

Admiral Adama jumps into Dexter

Admiral Adama jumps into Dexter

Edward James Olmos. Here’s an actor that brings class to everything he touches. Galactica‘s former Admiral has been cast in a recurring role on Showtime’s much-acclaimed Dexter, which is just about to enter its sixth (and potentially final) season. He’ll be joining the already-announced Colin Hanks and Mos Def, playing a “brilliant, charismatic professor of religious studies.” As if I […]

Vin Diesel takes a pay cut to keep Riddick going

Vin Diesel takes a pay cut to keep Riddick going

It must be said that I’m a fan of Vin Diesel’s intergalactic bad-ass Richard B. Riddick, who was introduced 11-years ago in Pitch Black. The actor is a perfect fit for the role, and while The Chronicles of Riddick dropped the ball, his screen presence kept the film alive. His enthusiasm for the part was evident in an animated short […]

MOVIE ROUND-UP: Star Trek 2, The Dark Knight Rises, Green Lantern, Richard Linklater’s Bernie, The Muppets

It’s been two years since J.J. Abrams successfully restarted the Star Trek franchise. The 2009 hit proved to be popular with mainstream audiences, and demand for a sequel has been high. The plan was to get the film into theatres for June 2012, but the studio has been forced to delay it until December, as pre-production creeps along. Abrams, who […]

Heed the Call of Duty once more with the MW3 trailer

Heed the Call of Duty once more with the MW3 trailer

There’s a lot riding on Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Not in terms of sales, mind you: The last instalment became the fastest-selling entertainment release in history, and Black Ops only kept the streak alive. Yet, many are expecting a significant drop in quality following the publisher’s much-publicised rift with Infinity Ward. They have passed the reigns to […]
