Silver Surfer: And Them Other Four

Just a quick update on the naming of the new Fantastic Four movie. A couple of weeks ago it was officially let out of the bag by jessica alba that The Silver Surfer would be appearing in the sequel to the 2005’s Fantastic Four. Well, now that the official title of said sequel has been […]

Box Office: Supes vs Spidey

In typical ‘God hates elroy’ style I was stuck in meetings all day yesterday, so I didn’t get a chance to slip into my blue and red pajamas and hit the cinema to see Superman Returns. My absence doesn’t seem to have hurt the box office numbers for the man of steal’s opening day, which […]

Spiderman: Suit up!

Me, not a huge fan of the first two Spidey movies. I’m not saying that they were crap or anything, far from it, I’m just saying that I didn’t think they were as good as all of the (follow up) hype gave them credit for. I’ll admit though that they have completely changed the landscape […]

BoyTown: Love Handles

Last night I was lucky enough to be amongst the first audience to see a new Australian comedy called BoyTown. Now, normally, if you were to trick me into sitting down in a theater before uttering the words ‘Australian’ and ‘Comedy’ I’d run screaming from the building, concoct some elaborate torture method and then come […]

Wonder Woman: First Draft

One upcoming bit of geek gear that I’ve as yet neglected to post about is the fact that the extremely personable Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy, Angel and Firefly/Serenity is currently working on a long awaited film version of everybody’s favorite Amazonian hottie, Wonder Woman. To be fair though, I haven’t mentioned it because, for […]

IronMan: Get the Lead Out!

Jon Favreau is probably better known to most people as Peter Becker, the rich guy who dated Monica on Friends for a short time, or maybe as Mike Peters from the movie Swingers. He’s one of those guys who just seems to show up in everything (Seinfeld, Chicago Hope, The Larry Sanders Show, The King […]

Futurama: It’s Back Baby!

Grab your dictionary folks, go to the ‘F’ section and add an entry titled: F*CKIN-A! Next to that include a short paragraph describing how Comedy Central, who paid some thirty million smackers in October for the license to re-run episodes of Futurama, has now just answered every fanboy’s prayers by commissioning 13 new episodes from […]

Yellowbeard: On DVD Finally!

There have been two movies which, since the day I bought my first DVD player, I’ve wanted to own a nice crisp digital transfer of. Both have been unavailable at anything less than a ‘reasonable’ quality thus far, however in the last month that has changed: Back on the 6th I posted about the upcoming […]

Blade: Spike Series Sans Snipes

The idea of a Blade television series has been floating around for a while. Last I’d heard it was full steam ahead and, aside from the total absence of Wesley Snipes, very little information was available. Well, it seems that the progress has gone much further than I’d anticipated and Blade: The Series is set […]

Aquaman: Sucks to be you!

Presuming that you’re ever required to create a list of the lamest superhero’s ever, know that you can complete said list with one name and one name only: Aquaman. Yet despite the fishy character’s inescapable suckyess I have to admit that I’m more than a little surprised that The CW (the ‘new’ television network which […]
