Having trouble letting go of revising Force Awakens

I ran across this weeks-old article from Cinemanblend, and it got me re-writing the film… again. I quietly yearn for a day when I get over it & just enjoy the movie. Until then: http://www.cinemablend.com/new/C-3PO-Red-Arm-Force-Awakens-Explained-102337.html?utm_source=zergnet.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=zergnet_829106 “Due to the 30 year time jump in The Force Awakens, it makes sense that C-3PO is presumably an outdated […]

Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

It’s October and Halloween is upon us. The gang at BeatDownBoogie, as always, does not disappoint with their footage from DragonCon 2014. It is harder and harder to name every character I see, especially with all of the variations and mash-ups. Watch for what I can only describe as “Hawaiian Vacation Cobra Commander.” Below are […]

Show them you love them with the Hate Plague.

Sometimes when I’m listening to the Tower gang I forget I’m not actually on the podcast that week and start talking to them. This was one of those weeks. When they were discussing 28 Days Later, I was reminded of the classic 2-part episode of The Transformers: “The Return of Optimus Prime.” (Spoiler alert: Optimus […]

And now, an image of Arcee, a fan-favorite Transformer

New ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ poster proves the Tower is inhabited by geniuses.

Let’s forget that the poster is another example of somebody Photoshopping a bunch of individual photos together for poor results. See what’s going on there? Something UNSUSUAL about the layout? Yes, Wolverine, X-Men’s literal poster boy is front & center and largest in the group, but in a solid second place is a LADY! Mystique […]
