Apparently, motion posters are a thing now. If you’re wondering what a motion poster is, it’s a quick video where the subject is moving against a static background. Okay.
Anyway, the upcoming Daredevil show from Netflix just released a bunch of motion trailers over the last few weeks. And since I was still scratching my head over the concept of a motion trailer – no matter how cool it looks – I didn’t care much.
Mortal Kombat X is a game I am looking forward to. I don’t know, maybe I’m a sucker for bloody video game violence that’ll make a couple of parents’ groups gasp and do the sign of the cross while I’m on my phone in the bus. I really don’t care if the gameplay is exactly the same as Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile, and I really hated that game when it first came out. Right now I’m still playing it everyday, grinding like there’s no tomorrow, so I can tap like crazy and get that Superman. I don’t know. I stopped caring. I just like beating the hell out of the Joker.
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.
