Resident evil, all wrapped up
This past weekend I took the opportunity to wrap up the resident evil movie collection and saw Resident Evil: Retribution, and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. I had seen Resident Evil: Afterlife in the theaters in 2010, but I had been putting off the rest. All movies pick up from another another (well, at least the last three did), so I think they are better seen consecutively :-).Resident
First contact day is upon us!
Monday, Mar 27 2017 18:34 | Entertainment, Films, MMORPG, online, Sci-Fi, StarTrek, video games, VideoGames
I saw, on the the STO blog, that First Contact day is almost upon us! For the event, STO will be doing the following:Captains who participate will search the area for useful parts, just like Cochrane scavenged the pieces for the Phoenix. Using these parts in conjunction with a basic hull assembly, captains will make their own model of the Phoenix by combining engines, hull, and stabilizer parts found
Assassin's Creed (the movie) | a brief review
Last week I headed off to the movie theaters to see the new Assassin's Creed movie, which I have been waiting for with great excitement for a while (now, if only the Splinter Cell movie were to come out soon!). We also went during the day when there were only about 10 of us in the movie theater (seems like a waste, but I did like having more room to spread out, and if I laughed out-loud it wouldn't
Meanwhile Thor was being a normal mortal...
What Thor was doing during the events of Captain America: Civil War. LOL. :-) This came by way of faceboook...

Star Trek Beyond: trailer 2
Now THIS trailer looks way better than the first one! Of course the main question in my mind is this: If the Enterprise gets destroyed in this one, what will the NCC 1701-A look like? ;-) And, will it come with new uniforms, sort of like Wrath of Khan, or will they go in an alternative direction? Imagine if they went sort of like the uniforms that they (almost) used in Star Trek:
Assassin's Creed Movie Trailer (woah!)
The trailer for the Assassin's Creed movie is out (with a date of December 21, 2016!) I can't wait! I love that it's taking place during the Spanish Inquisition (so the games can't be messed up and completely mangled). I wonder if that's Desmond or some other assassin. Can't wait! (giant grin!)
Renegades on final approach
Seems like the whole Paramount/CBS Lawsuit vs. Axanar is having additional ripple effects (at least that's my take on it). Along with the two cancelled fan productions I mentioned last week, Star Trek Renegades posted to the Kickstarter announcements yesterday some bittersweet news. First, they will be making both episode 2 and episode 3 (now called Part I and II of the episode), even though
"The War of 1996” | A United World News Special
I love this Independence Day sequel promo. Looks and feels like a news reporting segment. It gets you immersed into the alternative reality of the world. Can't wait for the movie to hit theaters!
Jason Bourne is Back!
Woot! I can't wait! :-) Seems like Greece is in the movie ;-)
Star Trek Farragut - new episode out
The Crossing, which I think is the penultimate episode of Star Trek Farragut (or is it Starship Farragut?) is now available on YouTube! And, guess what? It's a mirror universe episode! Can you tell I like the mirror universe cross-overs? ;-)I am wondering if their next endeavor is going to use the Wrath of Khan style uniforms, or if they are going with those funky 70s inspired Motion Picture
Ghostbusters 2016 trailer looks great! :)
I had my doubts about the New Ghostbusters film (mostly because I thought they were going with the old ghostbusters just rehashed), but this seems like it's going to be a really good film picking up from where the original quartet left off! Can't wait to see it :-)
Something more for the history books, in case someone looks back at this blog in the future. Today David Bowie passed away at the age of 69. The amazing thing is that he just released his last album a few weeks ago (well it seems recent anyway). I wasn't that big into his music, but I really enjoyed the music chosen for the series Life of Mars and Ashes to Ashes on the BBC which used his
Adieu | Yahoo! Screen!
Well...another service bites the dust! This time around Yahoo is cleaning house with Yahoo Screen. It's pretty funny because a day or so before I read the news of the closure of the service I deleted the app from my iPad. I had originally downloaded the app in order to view the last season of Community. Once I finished that (and I sure did take my sweet time to watch it), I
The new star wars ain't bad!
While I am not a huge Star Wars fan, episode VII (The Force Awakens) seemed like an interesting film from the trailer so on new year's day Kristin and I were off to see it in IMAX 3D. Prior to this I had seem some of the previous films. From the original trilogy I'd give a new hope 3 stars, empire strikes back 4 stars, and return of the Jedi 3 stars. From the prequels the Phantom Menace
Star Trek Beyond - first trailer
Tuesday, Dec 15 2015 10:58 | Entertainment, Facebook, Films, Movies, Sci-Fi, StarTrek, trailer, youtube
Well, the first trailer for Beyond is out... and it looks like Mission Impossible in Space. It's not that it's bad. I like the trailer - but it' just very generic looking. It looks like a generic, space, action movie that just happens to have the Star Trek logos and crew in it.Maybe other trailers in the future will be more indicative of what the movie is actually about.
Terminator timelines explained
Another youtube find. This one explains the the timelines. No explanation of where the Sarah Connor Chronicles fit in though... As Janeway said - time travel gives me a headache ;-) Video curtesy of "New Rockastars" on youtube.
Terminator Genisys Easter Eggs
Even though the movie has been out for a while, I just came across this video of terminator references in the most recent Terminator movie :-) Courtesy of "New Rockstars" on Youtube
Captain Pike (Kickstarter #2)
Tuesday, Nov 17 2015 04:00 | crowdfunding, Entertainment, FanFilm, Films, Sci-Fi, StarTrek, Television
Seems like Captain Pike is back, with a second kickstarter (or is it an indiegogo campaign?) going to finish off episode 1. It looks quite promising, and it's the second fan film (or independent Star Trek production in case people are offended by the term 'fan film') that takes a character from the original Trek series, that we've seen once on screen, and getting their back story. Wonder how
Stranglehold | Done!
Well, this past weekend I slogged through stranglehold, and in all honesty it was just to get it done! I had some pretty high expectations for the game, it being a John Woo game with Chao Yun Fat as the lead character (Tequilla).That said, the first couple of hours of the game really tainted it for me, mostly because I was getting Alone in the Dark vibes from this game: in other words, nice concept,
PhD - the Movie
Thursday, Jul 14 2011 17:29 | Films
PhD comics is coming out with a movie version! I have to say that I really like the comic strip but I don't really know how well it will translate into a movie. The Garfield movie seemed ridiculous (disclaimer: I have not seen it but I may if it's on Netflix) and no one has made a Calvin and Hobbes movie yet ;-) I fear that what seems like witty in a five panel comic strip will look pretty
Starship Troopers - the book
Over the weekend I took the opportunity of having nice weather to sit out in the sun and finish off the remainder sixty or so pages in Starship Troopers that I had started reading a few weeks ago. I had watched the movie adaptation when it came out quite some time ago (1998?) as well as the two sequels to the movie: Starship Troopers Hero of the Federation and Starship Troopers Marauder. The
Thoughts on some recent movies
This past weekend was quite a movie weekend for me. I honestly have not seen that many movies in a while! Some were good, and some were just plain disappointing! Let me start off with my MAJOR disappointment: Resident Evil Afterlife. I really had high hopes for this movie. I meant to see it in the theaters, in 3D, but I ended up missing it. I think I was lucky that I did
You're in the Matrix Now Mr. Phelps!
OK, I've mixed my movie metaphors a bit - Mission Impossible, the Matrix, James Bond, but it's all in good fun. Last night I was out at the movie theater to view Inception. The movie was a couple of hours long and I was getting a bit twitchy by the end, but it actually went by quite fast!I really liked the movie, It was like the Matrix had a mash up with Mission Impossible, Life on Mars
Movie (procrastination) weekend
I love summer! I can actually kick back on the weekend, without any homework and just enjoy the weather (or a movie). This past weekend was a movie weekend (to the detriment of house chores - oh well!) In any case, here is a brief overview:GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra: this wasn't a bad movie - I was expecting it to be far worse than it actually was. Yeah sure there may have been a couple of plot holes
The Social Network movie
When I first saw this title, initially I thought that it was a "scary movie" type of movie - boy was I wrong. It's a movie about FaceBook and it looks pretty bad - well pretty bad in terms that it is actually based on actual events.** shivers **
A friend from work sent me this yesterday - I have to say for a parody trailer it's pretty well done! Now when is the movie coming out? ;-)
Legion - Good, but has tons of holes...
This past weekend I took the opportunity to watch Legion. I must admit that I was pretty psyched about the movie...until I saw it. Don't get me wrong, the cinematics, the costumes, the acting, the people, the effects were all awesome! It was a great movie in that sense! Where it broke down for me was the plot: there wasn't enough back-story to this movie.Essentially what happens is that God is pissed
Dead Snow - Campiness to the max!
OK, so this past week the wife decided to try out Netflix. I've been avoiding Netflix because I don't want yet another recurring charge on my stack of bills - somehow recurring charges are there, but I tend to not use the service. Seeing how summer is upon us, I won't be having any courses to keep me late (or require me to do homework) and that most people will be hitting our public libraries for
Prince of Persia trailer
I've been keeping an eye out for video-game to movie franchises and our good ol' prince has made it (or is making it) to the screen this coming summer.The trailer looks kind of generic, if I do say so myself. Don't get me wrong, I am going to go see this movie, but I am only going to see it as someone who's played a number of the classic (DOS and Amiga) and newer (PSP) Prince of Persia games. This
Office Space - BYOGR....
I think the funny story of the week goes to the Computer Smash. For once whole dollar you can get 30 seconds of computer smashing pleasure. Got a PCLOAD LETTER error that's frustrating you? Is the copier insisting that there is a paperjam where there is clearly no paperjam? Then perhaps this is the event for you!Now if you want a real office space scene re-enactment, you have to bring your own gangster
Oh save us!
A number of years ago, when VHS tapes were still populating the video clubs, I was looking for a film with a taste of Greece. This is before I was able to find Greek films elsewhere.In any case, I was staring at this film called Ulysses' Gaze. Saw that it was made by a Greek director and that it had gotten some prize so I decided to rent it. What a horrible idea. The film is three hours long of
