Sad Autobot: Transformers FAIL?

Quite a sad Autobot...I found this while browsing this evening. The article I was viewing is all about how the Transformers movies should have been done and how they more resemble GoBots than anything related to Transformers. Quite an interesting read.

I haven't heard anything good about the new Transformers movie yet, mostly bad things such as how it's too long and that the first one was much better. Have you seen it? What do you think?

Alice in Wonderland (2010) - New Pics!

Below is a great video compilation (with great music) of just released pictures for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland which is due to be released March 10, 2010. Burton told Disney's Disney 23 Magazine (D23), "It's kind of a mixture of some distorted live action and animation. I can't relate it to anything because I'm not sure what to relate it to. It's kind of new territory for me."

Im sure it will be quite interesting and have a spin on Alice none of us have ever seen before. Unless you read the Grimm Fairy Tale "Return to Wonderland" by Zenescope Entertainment.

Nothing more to say...Im sure it will be creepy. ;)

Magic Kindgom for Sale--Sold! By Terry Brooks - FREE Download on Suvudu.Com!

"Magic Kindgom for Sale--Sold!" by Terry Brooks is now available as a FREE download in PDF, Kindle, Sony Reader, and Scribd formats via! I recently started reading Terry Brooks' "The Magic Kingdom of Landover" series and I love it! At first I found it a bit too "kiddy" for me, but then it started evolving into a great world and a wonderful story. Funny enough, I havent read "Magic Kindgom for Sale--Sold!"and it's the first in the series! I apparently started at book number 3 and went forward.

Book Teaser:
"After Ben Holiday purchased Landover, he discovered the magic kingdom had some problems. The Barons refused to recognize a king and the peasants were without hope. To make matters worse, Ben learned that he had to duel to the death with the Iron Mask, the terrible lord of the demons--a duel which no human could hope to win..."

If you enjoy Terry Brooks Shannara series but haven't had a chance to read any of the "The Magic Kingdom of Landover" series, I highly suggest you do! Immerse yourself in a fantasy world that with a little lighter atmosphere and some very memorable characters.

Here is the US commercial for HeroQuest, a roleplaying board game published back in 1989 and 1990. Basically a stripped down Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) board game, but it is amazing and I love it! I finally found someone else to play with, my brother in law! It's older than he is, but he still enjoys it and thats the key component! Its fun to watch him smile and laugh when I use my Dungeon Master "voice" during the introductions and when the game calls for it. The local comic book store said I could arrange a game if I wanted and use their massive gaming space which could be amazingly fun and bring some HeroQuest back to my area! I'll probably get laughed at by all of the D&D leet gamers, but who cares, Im having fun!

If you don't know anything about the original HeroQuest you can visit the wiki here. This isnt the silly video game someone made or the "newer" version of the roleplaying game after the name was sold off, its the board game! The good one! :)

Oh and if you have this game and want to play let me know! Or if you want to sell it and any of its expansions, extra pieces, etc, I'm interested!

The Old Republic Trailer: Deceived

This is just amazing. It had me smiling and giggling like an 8 year old on Christmas morning. This trailer is by far the best video game trailer I have seen in a long time. Excellent lightsaber battles with large groups of Jedi and Sith. You can't get any better. Even some Matrix action in there to make it that much more awestriking. "You have been deceived". You gotta love that stuff. I'm going to watch it again before bed.

Synopsis from trailer website (I can't summarize it any better!):
The Sacking of Coruscant. It was the crowning achievement of the Sith Empire’s ambitious military strategy and the moment that changed the history of the Old Republic forever. You may have read about it before, but our first cinematic trailer captures this event with breathtaking action and beautiful detail.

Republic leaders have traveled to Alderaan to engage in promised peace talks with the Sith Empire. The most powerful Jedi have accompanied them to safeguard against an Imperial deception. The Empire’s real motive, however, was simply to lure the Republic’s strongest defenders away from Coruscant and set the stage for an audacious attack. Under the command of Lord Angral, the Sith fleet approaches the Republic’s capital planet for the first time in centuries. In advance of the fleet, the strongest Sith Warriors have flown a stolen Republic ship into Coruscant’s orbit. Their mission is critical – to destroy the planet’s defense grid mainframe hidden in the heart of the Jedi Temple.

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra Trailer

I'm not sure how I feel about the movie "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" thus far. I've always been a fan of the series, some great animated movies have come out of the franchise, but this one just isn't doing it for me yet. So far I've seen no "GO JOE!" that we have all come to know and love, or the other few simple things that made the original cartoon great. I'm sure I will grow to love it once we start seeing more and more through trailers and more screens. Until then...enjoy this!
