Watch the Full Length Trailer for ‘Godzilla’

Posted 1 year ago by Movies

Wow guys. I haven’t blogged about the new Godzilla movie yet, but I’m super excited for it. I’ve been a huge Godzilla fan since I was a kid, and this new movie from Gareth Edwards (the director of Monsters) looks amazing. It has a killer cast, and it looks like it understands that Godzilla is a force of nature and not just another movie monster.

Ugh I can’t wait to see this on the biggest and loudest screen possible.

Seth Rogen is Making a Movie About the Nintendo/Sega War of the ’90s. Wait, what?

Posted 1 year ago by Movies


Well, this is already my favorite movie. According to everyone on the internet, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are making a movie based on the (as yet unreleased) book Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation. What. the. hell.

I don’t know if we should expect a Social Network like drama about the business dealings behind the console wars, or something more funny and 90s-nostalgia-driven, but either way, I’m in. I was a Sega kid growing up, but discovered the joys of the SNES after it was already old news, and now I’m a huge fan of both.

As a nostalgia nut who gets giddy with excitement anytime a retro gaming console is seen in the background of a movie or TV show, this should be a sensory overload for me.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Gets a Trailer

First impressions? One, between this and Jurassic World, Chris Pratt is going to explode in the next year or two. Second, this movie looks awesome and I need to see it ASAP.

I hope we get a second trailer with some talking Rocket Raccoon sometime soon though. I like the vibe in this trailer and that it doesn’t spoil anything, but I’m afraid the marketing will start spoiling everything closer to summer because Marvel will be worried about making sure people know what this is all about.

What do you guys think?

Toy Fair 2014 Roundup: TMNT, LEGO, Super Powers

TMNT Half-Shell Heroes

I told myself I was going to go to Toy Fair this year, but it didn’t work out. Hopefully next year! I wish it could have happened because there is a metric shitton of cool stuff getting announced. I’ll be keeping tabs on all the cool stuff and rounding up a lot of links and photos this week.

First off, Playmates teased a ton of new TMNT toys and they all look great. I’m lagging behind with their current Nickelodeon line (I haven’t been hunting for new figures for a while), but I don’t know how much longer I’ll try to get every figure in that line. However, they announced a cutesy line of Turtles called Half-Shell Heroes and they are the cutest things ever, so I will be buying all of those up.

It looks like they’ll release Half Shell Heroes versions of just about every character, a few vehicles and playsets, and even some jumbo versions of the cutesy Turtles. I think I may actually like these more than the main figures in Playmates’ current line. They look so fun.

Sonic the Hedgehog Valentine Scans [1994]

Sonic the Hedgehog

Well, the first (hopefully annual) Retro Valentine Giveaway is over, and the most-requested cards by a longshot from everyone who entered were these Sonic The Hedgehog cards. I wanted to get some Nintendo Valentines but couldn’t snag any, so I’m glad I was able to get some that were video-game themed.

These cards came out in 1994 at the height of Sonic-mania. I think I got my Sega Genesis in 1995 on my tenth birthday, and it came with Sonic II. I don’t know for sure, but I bet I had these Valentines at some point.

Sonic and Tails look pretty good on these cards, but I’m sure kids in 94 saved the Robotnik cards for their least-favorite friends (and teachers). “You’re so nice it’s disgusting!”….gee thanks.
