Hey Browncoats! Jana here,
Firefly. I only need that one word to raise blood pressure, inspire hopes and in some cases, cause Mandarin curses through gritted teeth. Joss Whedon’s rag-tag group of soldiers, mechanics, a courtesan, a pilot, doctor and a preacher….and Jane, have burrowed into the depths of each and every Browncoat-loving fan. We curse Fox for their ignorance in airing the episodes incorrectly and then for canceling. With only one season in our grasp, we have sustained the furious fandom that we have, calling ourselves Browncoats.
Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Hey guys, Jana here,
Microsoft surprised fans at ComiCon with a first-look trailer of ‘Halo: Nightfall‘. It’s a live-action series coming in November from Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and Microsoft’s 343 Industries. The story line is set between the events in the fourth and fifth ‘Halo‘ video games. ‘Halo 5: Guardians‘ is coming out next year.

I know what you’re thinking…another Hercules film? The Greek myth of the legendary son of Zeus and a mortal woman, Alcmene. Brett Ratner’s Hercules is a different kind of animal. At first, Hercules opens a lot like The Scorpion King. A nephew of Hercules (Dwayne Johnson), Iolaus (Reece Ritchie), is bound and about to be killed. Iolaus tells his would be murderers tales of the victories of Hercules. Enter Hercules through heavy plumes of smoke, which is quite close to Mathayus emerging from the soot of the fireplace in The Scorpion King.

There is a certain pattern to almost every movie genre. If you watch enough movies, you’ll notice the patterns for yourself. This is especially true in regards to romantic comedies. Look at Kurt Vonnegut’s shapes of stories and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what these patterns look like. Le Chef follows the typical “rom com” mold without any deviation. It is in this rigid devotion to the mold that it falters.

Hey guys, Jana here,
I’ve been anticipating ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2‘ since I saw the last one. We got our hands on not only the trailer for the new flick, but the red-band trailer. It looks like as much fun as the first was with one small hitch. Adam, the John Cusack Adam, is absent. Instead of John Cusack, we have Adam Scott, not that it’s going to ruin the movie, but the same guys we started the journey with are not the same guys we’re going to end it with. Lou and Nick are still being played by Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson, Chevy Chase is back as the repairman and Clarke Duke is Jacob. This time instead of re-living the past, they’re taking on the future.
Disney has made a name for itself with family-friendly entertainment. It’s got a logo that any toddler recognizes and parents can guarantee that if it’s bearing the Disney name it’s a safe bet that at least someone in the family will love it. I’m not saying Disney is getting stale, they are having to work harder than ever now to remain atop the family pyramid of entertainment since there are so many other contenders in that category now.
Hello, Jana here,
Are you sick of the whole ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ thing? The books sold like wildfire to uptight, undersexed women like they were Prozac-filled chocolate bars. I wanted to know what was so exciting about the E.L. James trilogy, so I took a weekend and read them. Boooooooring. That’s the verdict I came up with. Knowing that they started as ‘Twilight‘ fan fiction makes it pretty obvious to see the connections. Domineering male that is either everything or nothing to the girl that always blended in the background, wasn’t the perky volleyball captain, plain in her own way, but he sees something in her. Something he can’t turn away from. He tries because he knows that if she gets too close, it can be dangerous. Blah, blah, blah, blah-blah!
Hey guys, Jana here, .
Unless you’re living under a rock, you know that one of the greatest events of the year for the modern geek is going on. Yes, indeed, I am talking about Comic-Con. DC Entertainment is celebrating one of the most wonderful creations ever – Batman’s 75th anniversary. They pay homage to the caped crusader with his inclusion on a booth wall montage.
