It’s taken a long time for a legitimate Judge Dredd movie to come along, and we finally got one with Dredd last year.
Even though we cover a lot of technology here on TG, I for one would like to state for the record that I hate cell-phones. It also infuriates me that with so many cell phones, Blackberrys, and iPhones out there, you still can’t get your messages returned or get anyone to pick up the phone to save your life.
I still have very fond memories of Beavis and Butthead, and used to watch it faithfully every night on MTV when it was the hottest thing since sliced bread. Creator Mike Judge was clearly no one hit wonder, going far beyond B & B with King of the Hill, Office Space, Idiocracy, and more.
Lego has confirmed it will be rolling out three new Mindstorms model kits just in time for the summer.
It was a very unfortunate irony that once the Star Wars saga was up and running again with JJ Abrams at the helm that the plug was being pulled on Lucas Arts, the division that made the Star Wars video games.
While we’re not exactly that thrilled about how a movie’s box office performance has become a big horse race with the public, it’s often fun to track how a movie does when it finally hits the theaters.
Right now, screenwriter Damon Lindelof is getting a lot of attention, and it’s good to see writers front and center in the media, because many times they’re toiling away anonymously.
This summer, there are two movies that have a lot on the line: The Lone Ranger, and World War Z. A Wall Street analyst even predicted they could end up being the biggest flops of this moviegoing season, if not the year.
It’s taken four years to finally get to this point, but Star Trek Into Darkness is several days away from hitting theaters, and the reviews are pretty positive overall.
You would have thought that with the incredible success of Independence Day that there would have been at least one sequel by now, but there’s only recently been any serious talk of one.
It’s one of those things that make you feel old, but we were just reminded that The X-Files is now twenty years old. It’s often very hard to make genre work on TV, but sci-fi usually does better than horror, and The X-Files crossed over to all kinds of viewers, becoming a pop culture phenomenon.
We all know that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career has seen better days, but the guy’s now a senior citizen, what did we expect? A decade ago when he realized his days as an action star were numbered, he reinvented himself as a politician, and let’s face it, if you’re still trying to be an action hero stud in your sixties, it can be embarrassing.
There’s great nostalgia for the Amblin films of the ‘80’s, especially Back to the Future and Goonies. Gremlins was a big hit in its time, and outraged parents with its gooey creature FX, which by today’s standards are nothing, but it helped create the PG-13 rating.
Horror has been a big part of gaming for a long time, going all the way back to the first Texas Chainsaw video game.
Star Trek Into Darkness, the long awaited follow up to JJ Abrams’s reinvention of the classic sci-fi franchise, will finally be here in IMAX on May 15, and everywhere else on May 16, a day earlier than the original release date.
Marvel mania is absolutely back, and bigger than ever. Iron Man 3 looks to be the biggest movie of the summer, if not the year, and with a number of TV shows getting the green light, renewed or cancelled this week, the upcoming Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series has won a full season order for ABC.
It looks like the biggest movie of the summer has already hit theaters, even though the summer just started. Iron Man 3 is the box office juggernaut to beat this year, although we still have Star Trek Into Darkness and many other big contenders this season to come.
So we know the next Star Wars movie is supposed to be top, top secret, that’s a given. But some people involved in the next film just can’t seem to help themselves, and quite a few people like Carrie Fisher also have diplomatic immunity.
Thinking about the staff roster at a major game developer such as Valve, I would expect to see computer programmers, graphic artists, and all sorts of other executives and workers on the list.
Difficult as it is to believe, Jurassic Park hit its 20th anniversary this year, and by most accounts, it’s held up very well. When it came out in the summer of 1993, Jurassic Park was the blockbuster to beat.
