I was a huge Power Rangers fan back when I was a kid. I knew it was stupid twenty years ago but I didn’t care. I got to see Megazord punch another guy in a rubber suit week after week. And it was all that mattered. Oh, Pink Ranger Kimberly was hot, too, but that’s a totally different – and not to mention awkward – blog post altogether.
I’ve always wanted to keep my Power Rangers silly and campy. Imagine my apprehension when Lionsgate announced a Power Rangers reboot film. With the whole trend of pushing everything into dark territory, I know that the Power Rangers will get the Batman Begins treatment eventually. And it’s scary.
I’m not much of a gamer. But I used to play games a lot when I was a kid, and that was when I realized that, like so many things in life, I suck at them. However, there was one game I went back to all the time, and it is Doom.
Yes, I spent countless hours playing Doom. From completing the missions and having impromptu LAN parties when in computer class when our teacher is out sick, to installing on my first smartphone, I have fond memories of walking around the halls of Mars, blasting away at various demons. It formed much of my childhood. Which explains a lot, actually.
I never thought I would want to play Doom through one of 32 Instagram filters and a selfie stick. Continue reading
You have no idea how happy I am to have two of my favorite things, LEGO and Doctor Who, come together. I’ve always wanted a LEGO TARDIS and now it’s officially happening this year as part of their LEGO Ideas program. LEGO hasn’t announced which Doctors and companions are getting the LEGO treatment, but I’m willing to bet that we get at least Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor alongside Clara Oswald. And maybe a Weeping Angel, Cybermen, and Daleks. And a LEGO TARDIS. And there’s a LEGO Wall-E too, but I’m not too excited about that one.
Dear God. Take my money. All of it.
Marvel may be lording it over DC right now in the theaters, but compared to DC’s small-screen offerings, Marvel isn’t doing too well. Sure, Agents of SHIELD‘s second season is fantastic, and Agent Carter continues to be great, but Arrow and The Flash are currently killing it on TV.
In “Last Christmas,” the 2014 Doctor Who Christmas Special, the Doctor and Clara team up with Santa Claus and his elves to save the universe. Pretty much a great idea. Can’t wait for Christmas so I can watch this.
Also, if they won’t use the Wham! song in this episode, I will be severely disappointed, Moffat.
Oh look, it’s December! What do you want for Christmas? I’m pretty sure you have a great wishlist. But since we’re on the topic, how about you check out the things I want for Christmas?
I have a dream bass every year, and it changes a lot. This is this year’s dream bass, Seriously, look at that sexy beast. It’s either the Jaguar or this fantastic Rickenbacker that I still have not given up on owning.
I seriously never thought I’d see another new Star Wars movie in my lifetime. But here it is, The Force Awakens, and it’s coming next year. And it looks like it’s taken the best parts of the original trilogy and set the dial to 11.
So go and click play, and may the force be with you.
But let’s talk about that lightsaber. How awesome is that one? And who else got goosebumps when the Star Wars theme came on?
Are you excited for The Force Awakens? Let me know in the comments!
I don’t know about you, but it’s been far too long since we’ve had a proper Doctor Who fix. We were left hanging after Matt Smith regenerated into Peter Capaldi way back in December’s The Time of the Doctor. Now it’s eight days before August 23, and we’ll get to watch Capaldi play a reportedly darker Doctor.
Are you excited? I know I am. Sound off your thoughts in the comments!
So last night, DC released this new image of Superman from the impossibly-titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
So here’s Superman standing and scowling at the rooftops of what appears to be Gotham City. Probably moments before Batman pounces on him and stabs him with a kryptonite knife.
So he has very minimal costume changes, but apparently a whole lot of fanboys have started to dissect the image and see what minuscule clues a heavily-photoshopped image can provide for the plot of a movie that is coming out in two years. Continue reading
Now that 2013 is coming to a close, it’s time to reflect on the year that passed. Think about all the things you’ve done, the experiences you’ve had to get to this point, and finally all the things you’ve learned this year. This is the new year, and I know you want to take all these lessons and have an epiphany and change your life for the better. But most of us will just go back to our old routines and be the same old people we were before the holidays. Continue reading
