Mr. Gene and I ranted about things that only Nerds would understand our rage. Please note, during the making of this podcast, due to technical issues, I lost 1/2 of the podcast content. Still, I believe there is enough content to entertain our fans (all three of you.)


The Monster

Check out this episode!

the_lego_movie_2014This will be a very short review. Trust me when I say, “Everything is Awesome!!!” By writing any more and to include a spoiler alert would not be fair to you. Trust me when I say, I was completely blown away and so will you. Go watch it now.

While I am not going to give you the details about the “adult” parts of this Batman XXX, I will say, this was a lot of fun to watch. Yes, I know that is not exactly what I wanted to say but for a parody plus the production value makes this something you may want for your own collection.

What fanboy or fangirl haven’t surfed the net to see images of superheroes and villains in compromising positions? This is the next logical step to push the envelope to see our favorite characters in a new light. Just like the zombies have made there way into parodies of great literature works, I for one would like to see more high quality productions like this and move into other areas of comic fandom. Zan and Jana getting it on and then switching partners with Wendy and Marvin, doesn’t that sound like a winner? Or give us an ultimate battle of Marvel vs. DC – adult style? For gay parodies, why not have Aquaman and Namor do something – for god sakes they are both seamen… (hehehehehe). In any case, what superheroes would you want to see in an adult setting? In the meantime, take a look at the Batman XXX trailer which is SFW but really to be on the safe side, just wait to you get home and the kids are asleep and it’s 3am. Enjoy!

Mr. Gene briefly told me about this yesterday and I was pissed to hear about this. Reading further on the reason Guillermo left the project is understandable but it is really us that will suffer. In the meantime, we have just the animated movie I saw with my cousins many, many moons ago. Here is a small preview:

Hobbit Director Abandons Ship

This is certainly a heavy blow to Middle Earth dwellers. Guillermo del Toro has officially quit as director of the two-part The Hobbit movie due to production delays and MGM’s ongoing financial woes.

“In light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming The Hobbit, I am faced with the hardest decision of my life. After nearly two years of living, breathing and designing a world as rich as Tolkien’s Middle Earth, I must, with great regret, take leave from helming these wonderful pictures,” he said.

Del Toro will, however, stay on to co-write the screenplays. The director of both Hellboy films has said that all creatures, sets, and wardrobe have been designed for a film that has yet to be given the thumbs up from MGM.

Speaking to fansite, Peter Jackson had this to say about del Toro’s departure as director.

“We feel very sad to see Guillermo leave The Hobbit, but he has kept us fully in the loop and we understand how the protracted development time on these two films, due to reasons beyond anyone’s control, has compromised his commitment to other long term projects.
