Everyone enjoying the Olympics? I’ve been pretty consumed, I must admit. And any time not spent watching the Olympics has been comprised of reading up on the Mars rover, Curiosity. I’m sure you’ve seen my posting about that.
But anyway, moving on from incredible achievements of the body and mind, here’s what I’ve been reporting on lately. There’s yet another possible title for the third ‘Hobbit’ movie. I sure hope Peter Jackson knows what he’s doing. Promising us a third movie is big, and expectations are incredibly high. If it doesn’t live up to ‘Lords of the Rings’? Oh god, the nerd outrage will be unbelievable.
Speaking of sequels with very high expectations to live up to: FOX is Planning a ‘Prometheus’ Sequel for 2014 or 2015 – Scott, Rapace & Fassbender Already Signed On |More ‘Catching Fire’ Casting News: Lynn Cohen is Mags – Kick-ass, 80-year-old, Hunger Games Victor
And this isn’t in anyway a sequel, but the next film from ‘Fanboys’ director, Kyle Newman will be a comedy/biopic about Peter Mayhew -y’know, Chewbacca - called ‘Chewie’. It sounds awesome, and they really couldn’t have picked a better guy for the job. Have you seen ‘Fanboys’? Do yourself a favor and check it out. It’s one of the best ‘Star Wars’ movies of the past 13 years. Easily.
Why not watch it again!
Oh man, I can’t believe they still haven’t announced an official return date! Need. Doctor. Who. NOW.
And finally, back from the dead, it’s Nerds Say What!?
What is Nerds Say What!? you ask? It’s a half-brained, half-assed podcast hosted by myself, my boyfriend Jonnie (@Mallrat667), and our friend Noah (#NonTweetingNoah). If it’s nerdy, we talk about. Movies, Video Games, Television, Comic Books - you’ll find any and all discussed on our podcast.
Back from an unexpected hiatus we’ve got TWO, count ‘em, TWO new episodes. The first is an oldie but still a goodie, it’s out Comic-Con coverage wrap-up. The second is our ‘Dark Knight Rises’ review, The Dark Knight Rambles. Try as we might we can’t stay on topic at all during this review, but I think you’ll find it entertaining anyway.
