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“Due to the 30 year time jump in The Force Awakens, it makes sense that C-3PO is presumably an outdated […]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 […]

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

Today seemed like a good day to think about Arcee, the classic pink Autobot that can kick Decepticon butt and give you a hug at the end of the day. Pretty cool, right Repeater?       Tweet

Transformers 4 … wait… WHAT?

Well, color me gobsmacked.  I was convinced that newish character Lockdown (first seen in Cartoon Network’s Transformers Animated) was being brought into the Bayverse continuity as a herald for Unicron. We hear Lockdown speak for the first time in this commercial and what he says suggests otherwise…and it makes the Bay films even stickier.  “You […]

Optimus Prime and I have something in common

While I have admired Prime for a few decades, I wasn’t aware we shared the same affinity for sweet, crunchy pre-packaged chocolate sandwich cookies. Much like Prime, when I’m struck by a laser blast (or, more likely, under a crippling deadline) a few Oreos perk me right back up – even when I should by […]

Wolverine asks the musical question: “Who am I?”

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 […]

This TF4 promo shot has its priorities all wrong.

Well, I’ve been waiting for an image of Sophia Myles as her character “The Girl in the Lab Coat” from Transformers: Age of Extinction to pop up… and it did, just not where I was expecting. Much to the displeasure of gun nuts everywhere, the lovely Ms. Myles is hogging the screen while the real […]
