I started to write last night and what came out was the beginning of an amazing story focusing on a strong female lead, great concept of a cyberpunk future, all around really friggin cool stuff. Then this morning I hop on facebook like most of us do and and what do I see? A trailer for a movie called Ex Machina. Now if you know me, you know as much as I love fantasy, Science Fiction is my home. But as I watched the trailer, Ive fallen in love with this concept. Whats up with female A.I./androids lately? First Ghost in the Shell starring the wrongfully picked Scarlett Johannson (should be Rinko Kikuchi of Pacific Rim fame jus sayin). Am I on the right track? if so I need an artist for this. Whos down?
Hey there nerdcore Nation! Have you heard much about The Amazing Spiderman 2? I have heard almost nothing about plot line or story HOWEVER, I can come to a conclusion. The way the villains are being set up eventually I believe we will be seeing the emergence of The Sinister Six. I’m going to go on record and say that I am not a huge fan of Jamie Foxx as an actor. Hes a great comedian and I will always watch one of his if they are on. Jamie Foxx as Electro is something I am also very apprehensive about. I hope I am proved wrong and I hope that his costume is drastically improved upon throughout the movie because the black hoodie and dark jeans just doesn’t cut it to me as an Electro costume.
This movie has been saved in my opinion from anything that could make it suck for the simple fact that it has Paul Giomatti as The Rhino before the suit. In my opinion Paul Giomatti is one of them most versatile and plain badass actors that I have ever seen on film. Finding out he is in it made me want to see that movie even just that much more. I can’t wait!
Hey there Nerdcore Nation, how are you all doing today? Ive spent this morning pretty busy and out but here I am to bring you a couple posts throughout the day today being that it is OUR 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! One year ago today I started out to bring you the coolest and newest news, comic reviews, stores of science and awesomeness that I could. For those of you who have followed me through all of this and for the new folks I appreciate all of you. Now onto the fun!
In this movie Superman has been switched up quite a bit. From his suit, to his powers, down to the way he flies. So why wouldn’t his weaknesses change? I have read through a few articles this morning talking about Superman’s new weakness that will more then likely exploited in the up coming Man Of Steel. Its not kryptonite. It’s not a poorly written story. It is not a Lex Luthor kidnapped Lois Lane. It is…. his Isolation! Yep all that isolation and being different will be the cutting edge of weaponry in this movie. Not some radiated crystal from a far away planet. We all know (I’m sure we have all felt alienated at least one time in our life) what it feels like to be alone. Now just think how off the wall that would be with x-ray vision, super speed, flying, super strength, ice breath, blah blah blah. It would be soul crushing I would think. But somehow out of all of the chaos and confusion we get a man not of man tempered to steel. Lawful Good Steel.
If you have been following the little bit leaked info about the movie we know that Zod will be the BBEG (Big Bad Evil Guy) for the movie. It seems that Zod will be throwing his weight mentally at Superman in this film, which to me would be a fresh new idea rather then some nearly unbeatable monster. Im thinking this might actually be worth watching and I am in no way a superman fan.
Ok here we go. I love zombies. Absolutely love them. However when it comes to my zombies I am pretty elitist. I prefer the original Night of the Living Dead to pretty much any othe zombie movie out there. The exception is however Sean Of The Dead and iZombie. But when I saw the preview for Warm Bodies while watching The Walking Dead with my wifey I knew deep down in my undeadheart I would have to watch this. It is a story about a boy who is infected with the plague. He has a best friend and an unending hunger. Then he meets a girl and all zombie hell breaks loose. I love the idea of this movie so much I’m going to include the trailer so you dont have to track it down by yourself.
Here is an oldie but goldie. The Killing Joke is a graphic novel exploring further the complex relationship between Batman and The Joker. All the while giving a possible glimpse into one of The Joker’s possible origins. As he has said it himself:” If I have to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!” Anywhoo there is a petition right now to have The Killing Joke turned into a animated movie with Mark Hamil returning as the Clown Prince Of Crime. I think this is one of the few things that we as comic book nerds are owed. Such a big stepping stone from Batman and The Joker’s past should indeed be made into a movie with all the bows, bells, whistles and booby traps. So when you get a chance head over to your facebook (unless you are a hipster then it would be too mainstream) and go to this link: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Petition-to-get-Mark-Hamill-to-play-the-Joker-in-animated-Killing-Joke/395872280428559
Ok my dear Nerdcore Nation! I got two video blogs up for you to take a gander at. I have a Before and after blogs of The Dark Knight Rises. It was so good I had to make two videos for it. Yeah it was that amazing. It was so crazy. It honestly kept me on the edge of my seat. Even though I kinda knew what the plot entails to an extent it was still something amazing to see. Check out my before and after videos for more information. Ill toss you the links to the Nerdcore Channel on youtube.
