Trailer for the E Book Meg:Origins

Posted on 26 October 2011 by TH3 No08

The on again, off again shark book that could have been a shark movie Meg is getting a prequel that looks to be only in E Book form. I really dug this book when I first read it back in the 90′s but I’ve never been really shocked that it’s not been able to be made into a movie. The ending is pretty far fetched and to do the story right would probably cost about 200 million dollars. Check out the trailer below and head over to his website to pick it up for only .99 cents.
From the Press Release:

As a teenager, NY Times best-selling author Steve Alten read JAWS

RIP Gamestation 226

Posted on 25 October 2011 by TH3 No08

 

It seems like only yesterday that i brought you home, all shiny with that new console smell. I had waited a long time to pick you up in the hopes that the price on you would come down but I had a pocket full of money and you looked like a orphaned puppy in need of a new home. I remember the first game we played like it was yesterday. we popped in a fresh copy of GTA IV and set out on a great adventure that I still think about to this day. It was a great first couple of months that turned into a great couple of years. What a ride huh?
Truth be told the real reason I bought you wasn’t the great games you promised but the opportunity to watch movies in HD for the first time. We picked up RAMBO and when we popped it in for the first time we were stunned. The picture was amazing. No more silly compression artifacts or low quality AC3 audio for me! We jumped straight into 720p video and uncompressed audio that damn near blew the windows out with that high bit rate and thunderous low end. (I know, I know, 720p was all my tv could handle at the time but that has since been remedied as I know rock the full 1080p plasma. Trust me the wait was worth it.)
You weren’t just a great console/entertainment center you were also a great friend to my kids who have both grown up playing your awesome games. I still remember the first time my 3 year old son and 6 year old daughter went multi-player on Lego Star Wars. I watched in amazement as they got along and played cooperatively on a video game that was graphically light years ahead of anything I could have imagined just a few years ago. In my children’s short time as video gamers they have experienced gaming opportunities that I never dreamed was possible as a child who grew up playing Super Mario Bros and Zelda on a little 12 inch black and white television.
It seems a bit ironic that you died just a few hours into what was one of the most promising new games I’ve played in a long while. Batman Arkham City was just too much for your little processor/Blu-Ray drive to take. So while I will soon replace you I will not be getting rid of you anytime soon. You have now become a 400+ dollar Netflix player who I hope my children will appreciate and take care of when you move off the big tv and up stairs to one of the kids rooms. In closing I’d like to thank you for the hundreds of hours of entertainment you’ve provided my kids and I over the last few years and I look forward to your shiny new replacement who may take your place on my entertainment console, but will never take your place in my heart.

RIP Gamestation 226, The best console a boy could have ever hoped for.

The Poster Wall: The Woman In Black

Posted on 21 October 2011 by TH3 No08

In his first post Harry Potter role Daniel Radcliffe is going horror in a remake of a British made for tv film. The trailer looks kind of creepy but I’m really digging this poster. What did they see? Why are their eyes scratched out? Who dresses their kids like that? We’ll find out soon enough…

COMICS: Marvel Reveals Plans For Ongoing Dexter Series By Creator Jeff Lindsey!

Posted on 17 October 2011 by Christian

They may now be owned by Disney, but that doesn’t mean Marvel have gone soft! At yesterday’s “Cup ‘O Joe” panel, it was revealed that the creator of the TV show will write an ongoing comic book series featuring the serial killer…

Well, this should please fans of Dexter! However, if like me you prefer the TV show over the novels, this may not come as such great news due to the fact that the planned comic book series will be written by the creator of the character and set in the world of Jeff Lindsey’s books – and as you may know, they’re pretty different from the Showtime series starring Michael C. Hall! Many thanks to Comic Book Resources for the following.

The panel wrapped with Quesada saying, “I don’t know if you guys are fans of this little series called ‘Dexter’…” He then revealed that novelist Jeff Lindsay will bring the popular character to comics with an all-new ongoing series with new stories set in the world of the “Dexter” novels (as opposed to the TV series).

And thanks to the guys over at Bleeding Cool for this photo taken at the panel in New York.

Bryan Singer’s Excalibur Is No More

Posted on 17 October 2011 by Christian

The X-Men director’s planned remake of John Boorman’s take on Arthurian legend has been shelved. Singer speaks to SFX all about it and reveals that plans for his Battlestar Galactica movie are still on.

As you may or may not know, Bryan Singer was developing a take on the Excalibur legend which was said to be a loose remake of the 1981 John Boorman movie of the same name. That film is considered a classic by many and while I am a fan of it there is no doubt that it has not aged well. So I was looking forward to seeing a new version of the story. Unfortunately it won’t be happening, at least not in the foreseeable future and not with Warner Bros and not with Bryan Singer at the helm. The director spoke to SFX at their annual Sitges Film Festival..

The Most Well-Written Video Games of the 90′s

I started playing video games in the good old days of the NES. And after I performed the usual ritual voodoo to get the cart to work (you had to blow on it, tap it three times, and sacrifice a squirrel) I was usually treated to writing that consisted of
