IDW Announces “Turtles in Time” Comic Mini-Series
I am way behind on the IDW TMNT series thanks to my iPad mini’s screen cracking (anyone know a good way to get that fixed?), but this Turtles in Time miniseries sounds amazing and I would actually buy physical copies to read it. Inspired by the SNES game? Sign me up.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer
I still don’t know what to think about the X-Men cinematic universe. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 14 years since the original came out. That movie basically got the ball rolling on the entire modern Superhero film genre. I never would have thought that 14 years later, some of the cast would still be playing those characters.

Reddit User tysmurph Paints Stills from Disney Movies
I saw these get posted over the last few days and I really hope it gets turned into a series. First up was a still from The Sword and the Stone, and then the other day one from 101 Dalmatians was posted.

Minecraft developer Mojang’s profits more than doubled in 2013
Minecraft is one of the most interesting gaming phenomenons of the last decade. I felt late to the party when I started playing it a few years ago and it was an obscure PC/Mac game. Now my nieces and nephews play it on their iPod Touches and iPads and it’s making Notch Scrooge McDuck money. And just think, in a couple years WB will release a Minecraft movie and it will explode even more.

‘Gravity’ Teaser Trailer: Alfonso Cuarón Strands Sandra Bullock and George Clooney In Space
I've been hearing about this movie for ages now and from the awesome poster and trailer, it looks like it's going to be one of the most unique movies of 2013.

‘The World’s End’ International Teaser Trailer: A Sci-Fi Conclusion to the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy
'The World's End' is my most-hyped movie of 2013 by a long shot. Edgar Wright is one of my favorite directors and I can’t wait to see the final chapter in his Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End).

I'm such a bad geek, I still need to read this book.

LEGO Master Builder Academy Level 4 coming!
Even though Steampunk is kind of lame and outdated now, these LEGO Master Builder sets look really cool.

X-Men: First Class Trailer Debuts

Posted 6 years ago by Movies

As anticipated, if a little late, today Fox released the first trailer for X-Men: First Class. This X-Men prequel is helmed by Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn and stars James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, and a whole bunch of people I’ve never heard of playing characters I’m not familiar with. We’ll be back with reactions later.

X-Men Volume 5 DVD Review

Posted 7 years ago by Television

Along with Spider-Man and Batman, the 90s animated X-Men cartoon has always been one of my favorite cartoons from my childhood. Back in September I reviewed volumes 3 and 4 of the show’s run on DVD, and now it comes to an end with volume 5.

I never really thought we’d get this many episodes of X-Men on DVD, so I’m pumped to finally have them all. Well, I’d still like to see the 1989 pilot Pryde of the X-Men get a DVD release, but maybe if we buy enough of these sets they will release it.

Volume 5 contains the following episodes on two discs:

X-MEN Volumes 3 and 4 DVD Review

Posted 8 years ago by Television

X-Men

If there’s one cartoon from my childhood that I had been dying to go back to, but never got around to it, it is definitely X-Men. To me, X-Men was an after-school staple in the 90s. I loved the animation style and the action, as well as the 2-4 part series’ that frequented the show. The series ran from 1992 to 1997, and aired on Fox Kids, and later was syndicated on the Disney XD.

Back in April, Volumes 1 and 2 of X-Men were released on DVD, and last week Disney followed up with Volume 3 and Volume 4.
