The Muppets play The Hunger Games!

When they were building up the anticipation for “The Muppets” movie’s release in theaters, they made a cleverly crafted parody of “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” Now, ahead of the film’s release on DVD and Blu-Ray, Kermit and Co. bring to us their take on “The Hunger Games”! Does this whet your appetite for more… Continue reading ‘The Muppets play The Hunger Games!’



Second “Avengers” Trailer hits the Internet!

On May 4th, the culmination of 2 years of Marvel movies will be realized with the release of “The Avengers.” (Technically it’s called “Marvel’s The Avengers” – and is even titled “Avengers Assembled” in the UK, which all sounds like some silly branding issues.) The first trailer met with rave reviews, and this second one… Continue reading ‘Second “Avengers” Trailer hits the Internet!’



Kevin Smith gives fans a chance to see him “Live From Behind”

As someone who has seen Kevin Smith speak live and in person, I would recommend seeing him at least once.  He has the type of personality that excels at speaking to large audiences, and he’s always candid about his work and personal life.

The Dark Knight Rises…and gets sweded too!

On Monday, the second teaser trailer to “The Dark Knight Rises” was officially released on the web.

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Trailer hits the Web [VIDEO]

Everything that I HATED about the last G.I. JOE movie – the stupid “accelerator suits”, the campy humor – is notably missing in this trailer to the sequel, which is introduced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for Machinima: THIS is what the last G.I.

WWE Superstar John Cena returns to the big screen in “The Reunion”

The last time John Cena was in a feature film, it was in the family-friendly, sports-themed drama LEGENDARY. This time, he ventures closer to the action/comedy genre with THE REUNION, co-starring Ethan Embry and Amy Smart. I gave his last flick a mediocre Geek Factor Rating, so does THE REUNION fare any better? THE STORY:… Continue reading ‘WWE Superstar John Cena returns to the big screen in “The Reunion”’



Back To The Future skateboard scene re-scored A Capella

With all the attention that the Back to the Future films have been getting, they have been inspiring all sorts of geeky goodness.

Superman in Chicago: Chicagoans speak out!

This week the city of Chicago is playing host to the crew of the new film “Superman: Man of Steel.” Even before the production hit the Windy City, businesses and locales across Illinois were serving as stand-ins for Smallville, Kansas, Superman’s childhood hometown. Ask any of the folks who live in Plano or Sugar Grove,… Continue reading ‘Superman in Chicago: Chicagoans speak out!’



“FANBOYS” screenwriter Ernest Cline turns novelist with “READY PLAYER ONE”

When he first made his mark on pop culture, Ernest Cline did so as the screenwriter for the cult-classic film “FANBOYS.” The movie told the story of a group of friends who wanted to break into the fabled Skywalker Ranch to get their terminally-ill friend a look at a print of the then-yet-unreleased Episode One:… Continue reading ‘“FANBOYS” screenwriter Ernest Cline turns novelist with “READY PLAYER ONE”’
