Jem and the Holograms

For quite a few years, I’ve done my best to keep an open mind about remakes and re-imaginings of older movies, TV shows and songs.

Why the Batman V Superman Trailer Has Me Excited, and Why People Are Judging It Too Harshly

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

After months of anticipation, and waiting, and hoping, and to some degree praying, we finally got a well and true Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. In case you forgot what it was, here it is. Once I saw this (in its true form, not the bootleg version), I knew this movie was going to […]

When you think of the James Bond movies, what comes immediately to mind? Is it the villains? Is it the gadgets? Is it the Bond Girls? Is it the Bond character himself? For me, while all those things come to mind later, immediately, I think of the songs. Music is an important part of the […]

AINO has announced a new Asteroids game (AINO stands for “Atari In Name Only” since it’s actually a French company that purchased the name and trademark. The real Atari died in the mid-90’s) called Asteroids: Outpost. If it looks a bit different, that’s because it’s a sandbox-style survival game where you mine for resources, build […]
