3-2-1- FIGHT! -Fitness Inspiration from the Geek World

Many years ago, I was introduced to video games.  I had always wanted to play them, but the expensive consoles were never in the budget for my Christmas and birthday lists growing up. ( I also believe my mom had an issue with video games in general and being the youngest of three girls, no one we knew had them…)  I FINALLY broke through when I was 15 and asked… no, begged… for a Sega Genesis and got it for Christmas.  Now, it wasn’t a big win, because I was only given 3 games.. Home Alone, Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Little Mermaid.  Yeah I know… absolutely no geek cred there, but I was a kid and had no money and those were the “mom approved games”, so those were the games I played.

Marvel Scraps “Fantastic Four” Comics

Having failed to get back the rights to “Fantastic Four” from 20th Century Fox, Marvel has decided it won’t help out Fox in any way in regards to its upcoming “Fantastic Four” cinematic reboot.

Bleeding Cool reports that Marvel is putting all its “Fantastic Four” comic books on hold.

The characters will still be able to make appearances in other comics, but they won’t be the focus. “Fantastic Four” art has also apparently been removed from Marvel offices.

Marvel tried a less aggressive but similar strategy in regards to “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” a move that has not exactly been successful considering the reviews and business that film has been doing.

Sith Happens. Or.. Does It?

In every parent’s life, there comes a time when a mother and father must ask themselves a very hard question and then decide, for the future of their family, which choices they will make.  The choice creates a path for their family that cannot be undone.  The questions range from what age is best to which medium is used to share it.  Do you explain it, read it, watch it…?  All the while, knowing that with whatever you choose, a new path for your children will be laid before them and a new set of experiences will shape their futures.

The question seems simple but its complexity is is infinite.  The question isn’t just about age or medium or timing.  It’s about passion and how experiencing such a thing when that passion cannot be fully realized could alter perception and render children apathetic to the entire thing.

The question is important.

The question is… When do we let the kids watch Star Wars? Read the rest of this entry »

I know everyone is all freaking out over this, and I have already read several blogs and articles that explain in great detail why this isn’t something to get all angry about, so I don’t really need to add my two cents at this point, but I’m going to anyway.  Because, well, you know… I just can’t stop myself.

The media is responding to this by interviewing children and parents at the parks and walking around Disneyland who all seem to be up in arms about it and feel like it isn’t fair. Read the rest of this entry »

Constantine TV Series Trailer Released Online

 

Based on the wildly popular DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all. The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford.

Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.

Xbox Announces Originals

Xbox Entertainment announced six committed projects, and programs based on the Deadlands RPG, Chuck Dixon and Jorge Zaffino’s Winterworld, and Warren Ellis’ Gun Machine in development as original programming that will be exclusively available on Microsoft devices, including Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Committed Xbox Entertainment projects include a Halo live action TV series with Steven Spielberg executive producing; a Halo digital feature exec produced by Ridley Scott and David Zucker; Humans, an adaptation of Swedish science fiction series Real Humans and several reality-based series.  Halo has the best initial merch prospects, with Dark Horse comics and USAopoly tabletop games among others.

Several of the projects in development are also interesting.  A script based on the Pinnacle Entertainment tabletop roleplaying game Deadlands has been ordered.  There has been some other merch based on the RPG over the past few years, including a board game (Twilight Creations) and comics (Image).

A limited event live-action series based on the Winterworld graphic novel by Chuck Dixon and Jorge Zaffino is being co-developed by IDW Entertainment and Xbox Entertainment.  A new comic series from IDW with Dixon writing and Butch Guice art will launch in June.

A pilot script is being written for Gun Machine, based on the hardboiled detective novel by Warren Ellis, with Ellis exec producing with Brett Conrad (Sons of Anarchy), who will also write the script.

Extraordinary Believers, a stop-motion animation series by the creators of Robot Chicken is also in development.

The new Xbox Originals strategy is similar to the exclusive content initiatives of Netflix and Amazon, but is exclusive to particular devices, while Netflix and Amazon are largely device-agnostic.  Xbox Originals will all include interactive features.
