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“Due to the 30 year time jump in The Force Awakens, it makes sense that C-3PO is presumably an outdated […]

The Marvel universe will NEVER BE THE SAME because I give up…

Here we go again. More change for the sake of change. I guess we have to talk about something on Wednesdays.   Tweet

…so odd, and so wrong!

The Tower may be vacant for a well-deserved vacation, but you can’t take the Tower out of the gang. The Repeater always has his ear to the ground for a Bigfoot story, and he emailed the group this latest bit of GEEK NEWS, a sort of mini BIGFOOT ROUNDUP. Have you guys seen this? It’s […]

The new Doctor is such a tease(r)

A new short taste of the latest & greatest Doctor just for you, because that’s how The Tower does it! Tweet

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 […]

Happy 30th Birthday, Transformers!

May 8th, 1984 is generally thought of as the “birthday” of the Transformers as we know them in America, as it is the day the first issue of the Marvel comic came out. Below is the commercial – for the comic! – I saw during an episode of G.I. Joe, where I first witnessed the […]

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 […]

The new Transformers 4 trailer is F***ing with me.

The new trailer for TF4 has hit the electric internet and gives us more of an idea as to what the story is. Transformers are in exile, the government is building/salvaging TFs for their own use, and oh BTW Dinobots. The opening scenes show us that Marky Funkabunch is a good ol’ boy, a hard […]
