Batman Protective iPad Case for Kids!

I saw this on Toysrus.com and thought some other batfan parents might appreciate it!

Did Batman vs. Superman put the Kabosh on a Shazam Movie?!

Curse you Batfleck!  Does your tomfoolry know no bounds?  I can hear it now, lol.  Actually, Director Peter Segal was putting together a Shazam movie, but in a recent interview with ComingSoon he said Superman being rebooted really took the steam out of it.

“Shazam has always lived this tortured life going against Superman. This dates back to the 1930s. Because Captain Marvel had similar powers to Superman, the DC folks back then sued what was the most popular comic book on the stands at that time. Years later, they bought it and it became a DC property but, as long as Superman stays hot in the market place, there seems like a little bit of a crossover between the two characters. After Bryan Singer’s ‘Superman Returns,’ it seemed like there was a moment in time where Shazam was going to see the light of day. That’s when you heard those stories. Now that Superman is being invigorated and going up against Batman, I think it’s difficult for DC to figure out how to launch this character in the wake of Superman’s resurgence”

“At its core, it’s a lot like Superman. There’s this boy trapped inside of a superhero’s body. He’s still a boy inside, so there’s this opportunity to play a lot of humor with the action. Originally, Stan Lee brought me Fantastic Four a number of years ago for that very reason. I always have the question when people bring me superhero properties, ‘Why me?’ With Stan, he said, ‘It’s because there’s a sense of humor within all Marvel characters.’ These characters are flawed and, within those flaws, there is humor. When [producer] Toby Emmerich came to me with Shazam, it was because of those same reasons. To draw from that humor and to mix it with great action and pathos. I’ve always loved Shazam, but I don’t know if it’s going to see the light of day anytime soon.”

Batman v Superman Movie RUMOR: Denzel up for Lex or Green Lantern?


Ok, this is dumb...but I'm putting it out there for you, just in case Denzel is slumming it with a Zack Snyder movie.  Denzel is reportedly up for Lex Luthor..or maybe even Green Lantern in the new Man of Steel 2, featuring Batman and Wonder Woman, lovingly referred to by us nerds as Batman vs. Superman (with Batman's name first...of course! lol).  Ok, that is all.  Back to your Sunday!

The Berlin File DVD Review

The Berlin File DVD Review


Synopsis: Exposed during an illegal arms trade gone wrong in Berlin, a North Korean "ghost" agent finds himself in the cross-hairs of an international manhunt. Was he betrayed by his wife or his country?

Review: The Berlin File is a great new South Korean action epic by director Seung-wan Ryoo.  You may know Ryoo from his other greats like City of Violence and Crying Fist.  This one has everything...betrayl, guns, action..and of course intense chase scenes!  The action is over the top in that fantastic Korean style.  I'm really happy this one was imported over, it was a great watch.

The Lone Ranger (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) Review

click the title above to read the full review...

The Lone Ranger (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) Review



Synopsis: Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in THE LONE RANGER, from Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Director Gore Verbinski. It's a wild ride of high-velocity action, explosions and gunfights that brings the famed masked legend to life through brand-new eyes. The Lone Ranger (Hammer), the last of his kind, teams with Tonto (Depp), a dark and mysterious vigilante, to seek vengeance after justice has failed them. It's a runaway train of epic surprises, as these two unlikely heroes must learn to work together before the ultimate showdown between good and evil explodes.

Review: I remember as a kid playing with Lone Ranger toys.  I saw some re-runs of the old show and I dug it a little, but I was never a hardcore fan, by any means.  Then, I saw that Johnny Depp was going to star in this remake and that it was being done by Disney....that sold me immediately.  I knew that he would make it fantastic, and true to form, he's done just that!   The film is funny, action packed and a wonderful adventure.  Our entire family enjoyed the heck out of it!  I highly recommend this one!

Troma News! RETURN TO NUKE 'EM HIGH, VOL. 1 theatrical engagement​s announced!

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story....
Anchor Bay Films and Troma Entertainment announce exclusive
New York and Los Angeles theatrical engagements in January 2014
Launching Troma’s 40th Anniversary on the Big S-C-R-E-E-N!

Anchor Bay Films and Troma Entertainment proudly announce that RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL.1, the film that marks the return of Lloyd Kaufman to the director’s chair and kicks off Troma Entertainment’s 40th Anniversary celebration, will have exclusive theatrical engagements in New York and Los Angeles starting in January 2014 at the following venues:

January 10th – Village East Cinemas, 189 2nd Ave, New York.
January 17th – Laemmle’s NoHo 7 Theaters, 5240 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood

Q&As with Lloyd Kaufman and cast & crew will be take place at both NY and LA locations, with exact dates and times TBA.

With its inclusion in the NY Museum of Modern Art’s “The Contenders 2013”  film series (Lloyd shares the same roster with such directorial luminaries as David Lynch, Sofia Coppola, the Coen Brothers and Woody Allen), and recently named “People’s Choice Award for Film of the Year” at the Bizarre Atlantic City festival, RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL. 1 is Lloyd Kaufman’s latest Tromasterpiece. A hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi event film with themes ripped straight from today's headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world's food supply, rampant bullying and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. The film -- a revisiting of Troma's 1986 Class of Nuke 'Em High -- is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock 'n' Roll High School and Carrie, but it's seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team.
  
Welcome to Tromaville High School, where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters, but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?

Come celebrate Troma’s 40 years of creating some of the most revered – and reviled – films of all time!

SCIENCE CHANNEL’S IDIOT ABROAD, KARL PILKINGTON, PONDERS LIFE’S BIG QUESTIONS IN THE ALL-NEW SERIES THE MOANING OF LIFE

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story....

SCIENCE CHANNEL’S IDIOT ABROAD, KARL PILKINGTON, PONDERS LIFE’S BIG QUESTIONS IN THE ALL-NEW SERIES
THE MOANING OF LIFE

--THE MOANING OF LIFE Premieres Saturday, January 18 at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel--

(Silver Spring, Md.) – For the past three years, more than 66 million have watched as Karl Pilkington set out on ambitious expeditions organized by his pals Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant on Science Channel’s AN IDIOT ABROAD. The network’s most successful series concluded this past February, but Karl is embarking on an entirely new, solo life adventure on Science Channel in the all-new series THE MOANING OF LIFE. Two all-new episodes premiere back-to-back on Saturday, January 18 at 10 PM and 11 PM ET/PT only on Science Channel.

Now that Karl is 40 he’s officially “middle-aged” and ready to reassess his life and look at things a little differently. In THE MOANING OF LIFE viewers will see a now very well-traveled Karl experience how other cultures face up to some of life's biggest issues while he simultaneously plans for his own future. As Karl attempts to put his life in order, he’ll be dispatched around the world on a crash course to find out how other cultures deal with children, happiness, marriage, career and death.

“At this point Karl has become a beloved part of the Science Channel family,” said Debbie Myers, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Science Channel. “He’s a fan favorite and we think audiences will enjoy his take on life’s big questions. It’s a provocative and humorous journey of self-discovery.”

“I've been on the planet for 40 years now, and I'm still none the wiser as to what it's all about really,” Karl said. “I've never worried about life's big questions. People at my age sit about pondering about ‘why are we here?’ The only time I ever asked meself that is when Suzanne booked us a surprise holiday.”

THE MOANING OF LIFE Episode Descriptions (all times are ET/PT):
“Happiness”
Premieres Saturday, January 18 at 10 PM
Karl hasn’t given much thought to happiness and isn’t sure it’s something you should pursue. However, Karl wants to see how other people achieve happiness, and is travelling to Mexico to meet a tribe that gets happiness from running ultra-marathons and a group in Guadalajara who get pleasure from pain. In Los Angeles Karl finds his first dose of happiness comes when he meets a group of “hip hop clowns” and dances through the streets of Compton. From there Karl experiences a day of beauty with a plastic surgery addict, as well as a day of anger before having a go at giving up all possessions to see if the simple life is the answer to happiness.
 
“Kids”
Premieres Saturday, January 18 at 11 PM
At the age of 40 Karl doesn’t have kids and has never felt the need to start a family. But all his friends are having them and think he should too. Karl sets off on a worldwide journey in an attempt to understand why people have kids. It begins in Japan where Karl attends a traditional fertility festival centered around a parade of giant phalluses before he finds out whether he’s even capable of having kids by getting his sperm tested. Karl continues his journey in Bali where he helps out at a natural birthing center, babysitting a new born child and lending a hand to the midwives as they deliver a baby. In the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi, Karl joins of group of sea gypsy kids on a fishing trip and discovers a more relaxed approach to parenting. Karl’s journey ends in Los Angeles where he puts his learnings into practice and comes up with an unusual parenting test for a young couple thinking of starting a family.
 
“Marriage”
Premieres Saturday, January 25 at 10 PM
Karl’s been with Suzanne 20 years but has never seen the need to get married. But now he’s travelling around the world to see how other cultures do it and to see if he’s in the wrong. Karl starts his journey in Delhi, India where he gets a taste of an arranged marriage by going on a date with a prospective wife and her parents. Then he goes on patrol with one of India’s growing band of “wedding detectives” hired to spy on potential husbands and wives. In Bangalore Karl attends a big Indian wedding and is enlisted to help a couple of elite wedding planners get the groom ready for the ceremony, deal with catering and look after thousands of guests at the reception.  Karl’s journey continues in Los Angeles where he explores using science to meet an ideal partner before driving to Las Vegas where he searches out an alternative to the huge wedding he experienced in India. His trip concludes with a unique wedding ceremony that he’s invented using the information he’s learned along the way.
 
“Vocation”
Premieres Saturday, February 1 at 10 PM
Karl has gone from job to job without any grand plan. He certainly never felt he had a vocation. Karl starts by meeting an 85 year old inventor in Japan who attempts to teach Karl how to be a genius. Failing that Karl tries his hand as a traditional Japanese odd-job man. To get a taste of the high life Karl travels to South Africa to meet a flamboyant self-made millionaire who enjoys his money by driving sports cars, flying helicopters and eating sushi off naked women. In Los Angeles, the land of opportunity, Karl sees whether you really can do anything you want by trying his hand as Catwalk model in a Hollywood Fashion Show.
 
“Death”
Premieres Saturday, February 8 at 10 PM
Karl has never been to a funeral or thought much about death in his life. But now he’s embarking on a journey around the world to see how other cultures deal with death to help him prepare for his own funeral. Karl’s trip begins in Ghana where he seeks out alternatives to the depressing funerals on offer back home. He goes shopping for a Ghanaian “crazy coffin” (a customized coffin designed in the shape of anything from a hammer to a bottle of beer) before attending his first ever funeral, helping the undertaker display the embalmed body for relatives, before joining a carnival atmosphere of the funeral parade the next day. Karl continues his journey in Taiwan where he’s taught how to cry and deal with grief by a professional mourner before heading to the Philippines where he discovers a community of people that live and work with the dead, and an unusual alternative to burial on the side of a cliff. The journey concludes back in Britain where he organizes an unusual memorial for the woman whose funeral he attended at the start of his trip.

WWE: Goldberg - The Ultimate Collection DVD Review
 

Synopsis: Goldberg was one of the most dominant and talented individuals ever witnessed in sports entertainment, exploding onto the scene by amassing an epic win streak of 173 matches. Throughout his WCW career he defeated legends such as Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Diamond Dallas Page. As he crossed over to the WWE, this powerhouse continued his dominance taking on such Superstars as The Rock, Triple H, and Brock Lesnar among others. This 3-disc compilation features some of the biggest matches in Goldberg's impressive career and showcases why his legacy will forever be cemented in sports entertainment.

Review: In the late 1990s I had long been done watching wrestling.  What drew me back in was the NWO and Hollywood Hogan over at WCW...and what kept me there was a rookie that was flattening everything in his path.  Bill Goldberg.  Goldberg was instantly a favorite of mine from the first time I saw him flatten an opponent.  Eventually, the powers that be would ruin his character's run in the WCW by letting Kevin Nash dominate him, but it was quite a ride!  This DVD set has a great documentary and some fantastic key matches in Goldberg's WCW and WWE career.  I certainly hope he can return again, I'd love to see another run from him.
