Paul Reubens confirms Pee-wee big screen return, Judd Apatow Producing!

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


Paul Reubens was on the Tonight Show promoting his latest blu-ray release of the Pee-wee's Playhouse series when he confirmed that a big announcement regarding his new film is forthcoming very soon!  Check out the video below.



Personally, I cannot wait.  Paul has still got it and the world can always use more Pee-wee!

Terminator: Genisys Pics & Plot - Win or Fail?

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


The details of the latest attempt at firing the Terminator franchise back up have been revealed thanks to Entertainment Weekly.  The only problem is, it looks REALLY hoaky.  I'm a huge Terminator nerd.  I mean I read the comic books..love T1 and T2..I even dug Salvation..and the Sarah Connor Chronicles is still one of my favorite all-time shows.  That being said, I have to be honest about my initial reactions..this one looks very contrived and forced.   


These pictures are all poses for the magazine, so we still don't know how the film will look, but this exerpt about the plot (SPOILERS!) really alarms me:

Their recipe calls for one part Teutonic monotone with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in a big way, and four parts exciting new cast with geek bonafides that are sure to appease the Comic-Con masses, plus ground-breaking special effects and a few shocking twists on the canon.

Twist No. 1? Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.

“Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” says Ellison. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”

...What do you think fans?

About the CD: La-La Land Records, Warner Bros., Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics proudly present BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES: VOLUME 3, a limited edition 4-CD SET of unforgettable musical moments from the acclaimed BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES. These remarkable scores are game-changers in the world of television animation music, packing supercharged thrills, chills, action and drama within an emotional, musical whirlwind that rivals most blockbuster film scores. Music from such notable episodes as ROBIN’S RECKONING, ETERNAL YOUTH, DAY OF THE SAMURAI, MUDSLIDE, THE CLOCK KING and more are presented here in a knockout compilation with a combined running time of more than five hours!

Bulk, and mastered by James Nelson, this limited edition of 3000 units features a 36-Page booklet bursting with amazing images and in-depth liner notes and analysis by John Takis.

Our Take: This is the third volume in the La-La Land Records series of Batman: The Animated Series show scores!  I cannot believe we're lucky enough to have gotten this far!  The music is as much of a part of Batman: TAS as the animation or script and the cinematic score is brought to us even more in-depth in this third volume.  This one is a super limited edition and is well worth the money!  This absolute must have for any serious Bat-fan!

Product Spotlight: Batman: Assault On Arkham CD

LIMITED EDITION OF 1500 UNITS

About the CD: La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics present the original motion picture score to the DC Universe Animated Movie, BATMAN: ASSUALT ON ARKHAM, directed by Jay Oliva and Ethan Spaulding. Acclaimed composer Robert J. Kral (GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT, THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT, DUCK DODGERS, ANGEL) returns again to the DC Universe with a dynamite action/thriller score that is the perfect compliment to this action-packed tale, based on the hit video game series, in which Batman infiltrates The Suicide Squad, who have been tasked with killing The Riddler. Scored like a contemporary, urban crime thriller by way of the Batman universe, this is a great listen! Produced by Robert J. Kral and MV Gerhard and mastered by James Nelson, this is a special limited edition of 1500 Units features four exclusive tracks not available on the digital download version and liner notes from co-director Jay Oliva. Bat-riffic art design is courtesy of Dan Goldwasser.

Our Take:  Assault on Arkham may well be the best DC Universe film to date...its certainly one of the best.  This cool limited edition soundtrack to the film is a great accompanyment to the film.  Its a beautiful time to be a Batman fan, we get soundtracks to all of the Dc Universe films from La-La Land records!  This would've been a pipe dream a decade ago.  The CD also comes with four bonus tracks that you can't get anywhere else.  There are only 1500 copies in the world, so jump on picking this one up.  It'd make a great unique Xmas gift too.

2 Broke Girls: Season 3 DVD Review

2 Broke Girls: Season 3 DVD Review


Synopsis: Season Three serves up sweet surprises for two of Brooklyn's hottest waitresses, Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs), who continue to dish up sarcasm and smarts. They've got a new cupcake business at the diner's back walk-up window, and Caroline and Max negotiate a work-study program at the Manhattan School of Pastry: Caroline works in the office so Max can study professional baking. Plus, love - and the aroma of freshly cooked tarts - is in the air! Caroline has the hots for the school's hunky master chef and Max falls head over sticky buns for the outrageous class clown.

Review:  2 Broke Girls is one of those rare shows that features a fantastic feature film star in Kat Dennings.  She brings an instant credibility to this series, which features fantastic character banter and some really therapeutic situations for those that have or do struggle with money.   The third season of the show has introduced a handful of new characters and plenty of crazy new situations.  This show is really funny with a very adult and naughty twinge at times.  This one is a must see.

Pee-wee's Playhouse: Seasons 1 & 2 (Special Edition) DVD Review

Synopsis: In 1986, the whole world was invited into Pee-wee's Playhouse, the home of some of the wackiest characters ever seen! From Chairry to Jambi, Cowboy Curtis to Miss Yvonne, Captain Carl to Chicky Baby and the Puppet Band, no one knew how to celebrate each day better than Pee-wee Herman and his friends. And now, for the very first time, you can see every detail of Pee-wee's Playhouse as it's never been seen before: in brilliant high-definition! That's right, boys and girls! Every episode of this iconic Emmy(R)-winning children's series‘ first two seasons is right here, painstakingly remastered from the original film.

5 Exclusive Featurettes derived from All-new Interviews from 25 Cast and Crew Members.


Review:  Ok, so who doesn't love Pee-wee's Playhouse?  If you grew up in the 80s this show was a Saturday morning must see!  Paul Reubens brought this hilarious and bizarre character into our homes with two feature films and a five season television series that even spawned a great toyline.  This DVD set was remastered from the original 16mm film and audio sources!  This is the best possible version of Pee-wee that you can have!   This one includes the complete seasons one and two of the series.  I really enjoyed seeing this again and sharing it with my own kids, who are already big fans!   The just don't make kids shows like this anymore!

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring The Rockettes to debut in Omaha, NE

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

THE RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR STARRING THE ROCKETTES MAKES OMAHA DEBUT AT THE ORPHEUM THEATER NOVEMBER 13 – 30, 2014

THE ROCKETTES TAKE OMAHA ON AN UNPARALLELED
EXPERIENCE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON FEATURING
DAZZLING COSTUMES AND A 50-FOOT LED SCREEN
TICKETS NOW ON SALE

OMAHA, NE (August 19, 2014) – MSG Entertainment (MSGE) announces an all new production of the RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR starring THE ROCKETTES, which will premiere at the Orpheum Theater when Omaha Performing Arts presents the production November 13 through November 30, 2014. Audiences will have the chance to experience the magic of Christmas like never before. Tickets are on sale now.

“We’re especially proud to present this iconic production in Omaha for the first time and to be one of only three cities on this tour,” Joan Squires, president of Omaha Performing Arts said. “It’s an incredible opportunity for families to experience this all-new production right here at the Orpheum which will put everyone in the holiday spirit. So many people have shared with us their own Radio City memories and now Omaha audiences can make their own memories with this fantastic show.”

The Rockettes will dance their way through an awe-inspiring journey with dynamic scenes, an array of glamorous costumes, dramatic lighting effects, a full size double decker bus and a 50-foot LED screen that will enhance the show with breathtaking new imagery.

“We are excited to make our Omaha debut at the Orpheum Theater with the 2014 production of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular,” said Don Simpson, executive vice president of productions, MSG Entertainment. “With state-of-the-art technology coupled with dazzling Rockettes choreography and performance elements, the 2014 production offers a truly immersive experience like nothing Omaha audiences have ever seen.”

The Rockettes are known for their rich history, unrivaled talent, strength, precision and athleticism and have become one of the nation’s most beloved icons. They continue to take the Christmas Spectacular to new heights, dazzling audiences with their performance style, as it continues to be both deceivingly complex and entirely glamorous.

This year’s production will feature a 50-foot LED screen that will transport the audience to Times Square and Santa’s Workshop with Santa and the Rockettes. By incorporating state-of-the-art technology with the Christmas Spectacular’s classic holiday numbers to enhance the production’s breathtaking sets and special effects, this show will immerse audiences in the magic of Christmas in a way only Radio City can deliver.

In addition to fan-favorite scenes, including the high-energy tap number, “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” the Rockettes will debut numbers that will showcase their signature precision dance technique alongside challenging and dynamic choreography.

In one of the most memorable scenes, “New York at Christmas,” the Rockettes will board a life size double-decker tour bus, taking audiences on a guided tour through the streets of New York City. This scene includes show-stopping choreography performed across the landscape of iconic New York City landmarks and culminates in the “crossroads of the world,” Times Square.

Santa Claus will take center stage in two magical scenes: “Magic is There,” in which Santa takes two young brothers on a journey to the North Pole, and “Here Comes Santa Claus,” a number that reveals how Santa can be in multiple places at once. These heartwarming moments highlight the true meaning of Christmas in a way that only Santa himself can convey.

The finale will honor and celebrate the stars of the Christmas Spectacular, the Rockettes. The Rockettes will sparkle from the stage in the finale performance “Let Christmas Shine,” each wearing a costume featuring more than 3,000 crystals.

As the performance comes to a close, audiences will have the opportunity to lend their voices alongside the “Radio City Singers” in an energetic rendition of “Joy to the World.”
Beloved numbers such as “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers,” which continues to set the standard as the signature Rockettes number for precision performance, and “The Living Nativity,” both of which have been performed since the Christmas Spectacular’s inception, still remain a vital part of the show’s core.

In the Christmas Spectacular’s 20-year combined history playing to audiences outside of New York, as well as the 82-year old production at Radio City Music Hall, the show has played to nearly 75 million people. The Christmas Spectacular continues to create memories that audiences have come to treasure, and this year will mark an all new Spectacular experience for Omaha.

MAD Magazine Presents "How To Read The HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1"

On October 29th, DC Comics is releasing the HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1. But this is like no other annual. This issue stinks! Seriously! 
HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1 arrives with “Scent-icular” technology featuring actual, honest-to-gosh real smells. Take a trip through Harley's world in a groundbreaking issue, where the scents — odors like, leather, pizza, suntan lotion and something called Cannibisylocibe 7-A — featured in the issue were chosen in an effort to capture the weird and wonderful world in which Harley lives. 
 
Check out the "Reading Instructions" below, running in DC comic books this week, compliments of the MAD team.  Read, rub and sniff at your own risk!

NYCC: 1st Look at the Batman: The Animated Series / TNBA 6" Figure Packaging!


We get nice shots of the cardback and the stands for the highly anticipated upcoming Batman: TAS and TNBA figure line!  The stands have great black and white turnaround images of the characters.   Personally, I don't care for the packaging, which I'm happy about, because then I won't have any trouble busting these figures out for display!  Pics courtesy of Figures.com



Product Spotlight: Batman TV Logo Metal Bottle Opener


About the Product: Nananananana BATMAN! After a long day of fighting crime and a long night of doing the Bat-tusi, Batman needs to cool off with a frosty beverage. And now you can party like a superhero with this solid metal bottle opener in the shape of the iconic Batman TV show logo! This 4-inch opener comes packaged in a collector case with a full-color wrap. Designed by Barry Bradfield!

Our Take: The first thin that strikes me about this new bottle opener is the great packaging.  I'm still not used to the 1966 Batman merchandising, and its a lot of fun to see. When this one arrived I was struck immediately by how heavy it was.  I opened up the deluxe packaging and could not believe what a gorgeous and well-sculpted item this bottle opener is!  To be honest, I don't have a huge need for a bottle opener, but this magnetic sculpture of the 1966 Batman logo looks amazing on the fridge!  The pics say it all!  This one retails for around $18.

Product Spotlight: Young Justice Soundtrack CD



About the CD: La-La Land Pictures, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation present the original soundtrack to the Warner Bros. Animated Television Series YOUNG JUSTICE, as aired on Cartoon Network. Composers Kristopher Carter, Michael McCuistion & Lolita Ritmanis (BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD, BEN 10: ULTIMATE ALIEN, TEEN TITANS, BATMAN BEYOND) fashion an exhilarating superhero score that is every bit as bold, fresh and exciting as this hit animated series. This compilation brings together must-have musical highlights of the show's first season, as well as the second season, YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION. Produced by the composers and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this is dramatic, action-packed music that makes for a thrilling standalone listen! CD booklet features reversible cover art and in-depth, exclusive liner notes by film music writer John Takis that contain comments from the composers and the animation team!

Our Take: If there is one great superhero cartoon that has captured the imagination of the fans over the past decade its without a doubt Young Justice!  The La-La Land records release of the music from the show covers both the first and second seasons. In fact, fans of the second season, dubbed "Invasion" can even reverse the cover art to reflect the season two cast.  The music on this one is dynamic and a great pleasure to listen to. I like to put this on in the backround while I'm organizing the ol' Batman toys!  The liner notes of this one are also a huge bonus.  It features pages of images and behind the scenes notes from the crew about why they crafted the music in the way they did.  Its a great read and an even better listen!  We highly recommend.

Gone With the Wind 75th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review
 


Synopsis:  Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Olivia de Havilland, Leslie Howard and Hattie McDaniel star in this classic epic of the American South. On the eve of the Civil War, rich, beautiful and self-centered Scarlett O'Hara (Leigh) has everything she could want - except Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard). As the war devastates the South, Scarlett discovers the strength within herself to protect her family and rebuild her life. Through everything, she longs for Ashley, unaware that she is already married to the man she really loves (Gable) - and who truly loves her - until she finally drives him away. Only then does Scarlett realize what she has lost ... and tries to win him back.


Review:  I will preface this by confessing that Gone With the Wind is my all-time favorite film.   I love every second of this classic feature.  This film is adored by millions to this day and what better way to celebrate the pinnacle 75th anniversary than with this box set.  The goodies inside are adorned by a gorgeous box. The insides give us an amazing book, collectible hankerchief and music box, along with the Blu-ray version of the film.  There is nothing about this set that doesn't scream fantastic.  This is not only a must have, but it would also make an amazing gift.  The price is right and the extras are abundant (see below).  There is so much win here, and if you don't agree, frankly my dear,I don't give a damn!  You like what I did there?  Yeah, I knew you would.


Special Features: • Featuring footage including Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh attending the original movie premiere in Atlanta • “Old South/New South” NEW!
