The Marvel juggernaut should keep growing strong for at least another two years or so, and this year we’ve got The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as Avengers Age of Ultron coming in 2015.
Last year, Tomb Raider got rebooted with a whole new hi-def look, and there was a question as to whether today’s gamers would cotton to an older franchise. Well, apparently they have, because the game has sold six million copies.
Neil Young may seem like an old hippie to a lot of people, but he’s always been fascinated by cutting edge technology, whether it’s for recording or for his state of the art model train collection. And now he’s got a new music downloading service called PonoPlayer.
We at TGD love time travel stories, and it’s always fascinating to think how you could alter your life, and the destinies of many others, if you go back in the past and start making changes. But what about a Groundhog Day style concept where you go over the past over and over again, but here it’s in the sci-fi mode?
There’s certain video game titles that you know are going to be blockbusters when they’re finally unleashed on the world. Another Halo game? Natch. Call of Duty? Ditto. But what about Titanfall?
No, Michael Bay isn’t trying to launch Optimus Prime on Broadway. Even if something like that was done as a parody, the guy’s not known for his sense of irony. Trans4rmers is the latest musical parody that’s become an underground phenomenon, much like the Point Break musical parody that hit L.A. several years ago.
The late Carl Sagan became a pop culture icon in the eighties with Cosmos, a wonderful show that explained complicated science in a way that the layman could understand and enjoy. Now Cosmos is back, and Craig Ferguson also just got the greenlight for his new show, I F-ing Love Science.
Titanfall is being hyped as the next big thing in gaming, and many are considering it the great white hope to make Xbox One a success. While it remains to be seen if the sales will live up to the hype, the reviews so far have been pretty good, if not uniformly stellar.
Right now, True Detective is one of the hottest shows on TV, and it’s sure to only get more popular now that Matthew McConaughey is the comeback kid. In fact, the show has become so popular, it shut down HBO Go from so many people tuning in to see the finale.
As we recently reported here on TGD, it was rumored that Adam Lambert would be singing for Queen, and doing a concert tour with the band. Now that has officially come to pass, and he’ll be singing with the band this summer.
If you’ve ever contributed to a Kickstarter campaign, you usually get something in return for your help, whether it’s a t-shirt, or some other goodies. Now that the Veronica Mars movie is about to premiere, the fans who helped bring it to life are going to see some reward out of it besides the satisfaction of helping resurrect the show.
Yes, Harlan Ellison’s a crusty, angry old man, but he’s a brilliant writer, and that can’t be disputed either. Now 79, he not only did a hilarious guest spot on The Simpsons, but his work has also been adapted into several graphic novels, which Ellison has embraced whole heartedly.
So many people would love to have a Back to the Future hoverboard, one that can actually hover of course, but we’re still ways away from that kind of technology. (There was a limited edition hoverboard made by Mattel, one that didn’t float in the air of course.) Yet many people believed a recent prank about hoverboards, so much so that it had to be announced it was a hoax.
The Matrix was an incredible new vision when it dropped in theaters in 1999. Two lackluster follow-ups came after, and the Wachiowskis never regained their footing. Should they go back to the Matrix?
While Gravity didn’t win the Best Picture nod, it won more Academy Awards than any other movie on Oscar night. And appropriately enough, the film got another great nod that was very apropos, from space naturally.
The new edition of RoboCop hasn’t exactly taken off with audiences or the critics, but there may be some current speculation, or wishful thinking on somebody’s part, God knows who, that there could be a sequel. Allow us to explain…
There’s nothing more painful than people rapping who have no business rapping, or rap music being used in an inappropriate place. So does rap have any place with Game of Thrones?
While we’re not eager about the upcoming movie Divergent, which we like to call “Hunger Games Lite” here at TGD, there is a big fan base for the books, and according to reports, there’s a huge groundswell of people looking forward to seeing it at the movies.
Batman has gone through so many incarnations, and there’s a lot of different shades of light and dark you can project onto the character. The Christian Bale edition of Batman came to an end nearly two years ago now, and now the Batman video game will be winding up as well.
The news just hit that Scarlett Johansson is expecting a child with her fiancé, Romain Dauriac. This is great news, but it could also be a problem because she could start showing in her Black Widow outfit, so the Avengers 2 shoot has had to do some reshuffling schedule-wise.
