It does indeed rain in Southern California

That’s right it raining!!!  Woot!!

Yes I am one of those weird Californians that love the rain.  I love the snow I love all weather associated with Winter.  When it gets cold like this I like to sit on my patio with a cup of coffee and a smoke and enjoy the cold.

Weather like this is also a great time to bundle up in the house and turn on some good music and do some reading.  It is also a good time to chill out and watch some movies.  I have done both in the month since my last post.  Aren’t you proud?

First I want to talk about the movie 9.  Now I know a lot of people out there were complaining about this movie and how they didn’t like it.  I have no clue what the hell they were talking about.  I liked this movie.  In fact I almost loved it.  Almost.

Here’s the synopsis:  Basically it’s your average Scientist creates a machine to help mankind and the military comes in to take the project to use it for a war weapon.  Common theme right?  Here is the twist it takes.  Basically this scientist creates the perfect machine.  This machine is capable of independent thought when it comes to the creation of other machines.  The military wants to use it to create war machines and it does.  The machines, of course, become sentient and eradicate the human race.  In desperation and out of guilt, the scientist creates 9 sack dolls and stores a piece of his soul into each of them killing himself in the process.  The 9th doll wakes up to a post apocalyptic world and through a series of misadventures he comes to discover their true purpose in recreating the world of man.

Yes while it is a story we have seen before, I still liked it.  The soundtrack was fairly cool and the visuals were outstanding.  The voice acting was top notch as well.  I don’t understand what everyones complaint about the movie was.  I have even heard some people say they didn’t understand what the movie was about.  After watching the movie I was wondering if we were all talking about the same movie.  If you haven’t had a chance to watch this movie then do so.  I am sure you will enjoy it.  If not then pop me an email and lets discuss it.

Pandorum is a movie that has Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster waking up in a space ship and wondering where they are.  They quickly come to realize that they are the crew of the ship put into hypersleep and awoken to relieve the crew before them.  Unfortunately for them all is not what it seems.

I heard a lot of people not digging on this movie as well.  In fact the box office numbers even show this.  I, however, dug the hell out of it.  I am a sucker for cool sci fi and this one didn’t let me down.  It was creepy and depressing all at the same time.  This one will look awesome on blu-ray when it comes out.

On the comic front, I haven’t really been reading to many new series.  I am still loving the Deadpool series and all the other regular series that I have been reading.  I am glad to see that the Dark Reign storyline is coming to an end.  I am excited to see The Siege and War of the Hulks beginning to start.  Powers Vol 3 #1 came out and I ran down to grab it up.  I was not disappointed.

On the FP front, I am proud to announce that ZKS #0 is finished.  Unfortunately we ran out of funds in getting it created and may have to delay printing.  We would like to ask for donations though (we aren’t THAT proud) and if you feel like donating please do.  Make all checks out to AJ Herrera and send them to:

Any and all donations will receive a free signed copy of the comic as well as a limited edition poster.  Let me just thank you now for it heh.

We will also be appearing at the Rose Bowl Comics and Collectibles Show on Dec 13.  This is going to be a big event as it takes place during the Rose Bowl flea market which in itself brings in 10,000-15,000 people.  Please come out and see us!!

Dec 17th at midnight will find us at the IMAX in Ontario, California to see the midnight release of AVATAR in 3-D.  Please come join us for that as well.

Well that’s all for now.  Stay tuned for some more awesome news coming as well as Panelcast!!!
