Today’s Geek deal is the entire series of the beloved tv show, “I Love Lucy” show.
At a press conference in Dubai, Tom cruise announced the title for his upcoming role as Ethan Hunt in the 4th installment of the Mission Impossible franchise. Read the rest of this entry »
Finally, we get to see actor Chris Evans suited up as the first Avenger, Captain America. This is a photo on the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly.
So the next season of Big Love will start on HBO on January 16th, 2011. But sadly it will be its final season. Last season we ended with the family announcing who they really are to the public. It was a short season, by about three or four episodes. Hopefully, we will get a full 12-13 episode season for its final season.
The press release is below.
Conan will do a test show called “Zero” this upcoming Monday which will be broadcast via streaming on Facebook, Youtube, and TeamCoco.
Halloween is coming up in a few days, and Halloween costume parties have already begun. I hope you have your costumes already so you do not have to rush around last minute to create that perfect costume.
The powers that be over at the Lucas Compound is set to announce sometime soon that all of the Indiana Jones films will be converted to 3D. After they are converted they will be re-released into cinemas around the globe. Now, I am pretty tired of this 3D bullshit and converting older movies into 3D, but it would be pretty cool to see the original Indiana Jones films on the big screen again with a very enthusiastic audience.
In a recent interview with Christopher Nolan, a lot was said about the upcoming third Batman film. Now I know we have heard tons of rumors as to who will be cast and which villains will be showing their faces. Nolan gives us a pretty good clue as what to expect so far.
Last week, The Beastie Boys announced that their new album will be entitled Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. This was changed from Hot Sauce Committee part 1 which was supposed to be released last September, but was delayed indefinitely because of Adam Yauch’s cancer diagnosis. It seems that the track list for this Part 2 release is almost identical to the track list which would have been released on Part 1 last year.
MCA said: “Strange but true, the final sequence for Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 works best with all its songs replaced by the 16 tracks we originally had lined up in pretty much the same order we had them in for Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1. So we’ve come full circle.” Who says these guys don’t have a sense of humor anymore?”

Elijah has not done much since Lord of the Rings or Sin City with the exception of a couple of small movies. He has mostly been doing animated shows and movies.
The full press release for the show is available after the jump.
From the upcoming Thor movie from Marvel and directed by Kenneth Branagh, it seems that somebody is selling Thor action figures online already. It shows Thor and Odin I think and what appears to be some sort of Ice Monster.
What do you think?
Now I am not a huge fan of Family Guy or The Cleveland Show or American Dad, but some of the jokes in those shows are decent, I just think they are held back by basic cable to show its true potential.
I think Seth McFarlane is a comedic genius though and given the right crew and script, he can come out with something truly amazing.
Well it seems that Seth has been asked to make a hard “R” comedy called Ted. Ted stands for Teddy Bear.
It is suppose to be a big budget filthy rated “R” comedy about an adult male’s sentient, drug addicted, womanizing Teddy Bear.
They are in talks with Mark Wahlberg to play the lead role. Which I think is great. Wahlberg has great comedic timing.
Looking forward to seeing what all comes of this.

I was an addict of Fallout 3. I loved roaming a huge blasted landscape while listening to old time music. I loved choosing between being good, warm and kind and dastardly evil. At times getting to make decisions where either way your hands are dirty. I was excited by the notion of taking that game engine and those game elements and throwing it from DC to the vicinity of Sin City.
To put it bluntly and briefly: the movie often bored me, was often shot uglier than expected and had one scene that was nearly perfect. I don’t know what to make a movie that seems so flawed that has a single scene so touching, so well executed.
Knocking out this list on time and schedule nowadays. Feels good. Some great films on this part of the list. Some that I have not seen in a while that I will have to watch again soon. We’re getting down to the #1 spot pretty quickly. Enjoy this part of the list #’s 68-54. As usual, you will get the title of the movie and the date it was released plus a mini review/memory by me. Also a link to purchase the movie if you are ever so inclined which would donate a small percentage back to this website so we can keep giving you AWESOME material and prizes.
68_ Iron Man – May 2, 2008
Another comic book film. Iron Man is really really good in pretty much every way. Robert Downey Jr. is killer in this film as the super-hero and Jeff Bridges is a pretty convincing bad guy. This film is a lot of fun and full of laughs and action. Can’t wait for the sequel and Avengers film. Go Sam Jackson as Nick Fury.
67_ Brick – March 31, 2006
This film is great. A wonderful homage to the old 30’s noir films. Set in present time but take the characters and have them talk like they did in the 30’s noir film and a plot and story line likewise. It is so great. Tons of twists and turns. Joseph Gordon Levitt is amazing. I am proud to have this on the list. Love this film.
66_ Drag Me To Hell – May 29, 2009
Sam Raimi’s return to the horror genre from his long stint on the Spidey franchise is 100 % AWESOME. Sadly no Bruce Campbell, but Drag Me To Hell is Evil Dead I & II and Army of Darkness rolled into one film. Yes it is that great. This is your standard tale of a gypsy woman curing a young girl this curse activates a demon to terrorize its victims and DRAG THEM TO HELL. Good scares and great laughs. A lot of fun.
65_ Zoolander – September 28, 2001
Ben Stiller is great director and a great character actor. Tons of quotable lines from this film even today. A dark comedy in the world of super-models. I mean in the first five minutes of the film a few super models die in a gas station fire which they started. HILARIOUS. Tons of great cameos and acting all around. Zoolander will always have a place in my home and heart. I mean he did found the Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good.
64_ Napoleon Dynamite – June 11, 2004
I saw this film five times before it was initially released wide and I loved every minute of it. I really cannot tell what time period it is in other than sometime in the vague present, but Napoleon is a kid in high school who is maybe the most awkward kid ever, but he means well. This is the story of his life in the span of a few weeks. It is quite hilarious in this dry humor. This character is one of the cult icons now in history. The dance number at the end to Canned heat classic. Love this film.
63_ Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – March 19, 2004
A gem of a film from Gondry. This film is fantastic film. Almost like you are in a dream and nightmare at the same time through out the whole film. A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with. Truly fantastic.
62_ Ratatouille – June 29, 2007
I really liked this pixar film. All about the restaurant and food and cooking industry. So much heart and love is in this film. It looks beautiful and and the voice acting by Patton Oswalt is wonderful. Anyone can cook, even a rat. Love it.
61_ The Departed – October 6, 2006
A really great gangster film from the best gangster director. That is Marty Scorcesse. Boston gangs. All-star cast and tons of twists and references to other mob films. Leonardo Di Caprio plays an undercover agent in the mob and tries to keep his sanity and wits during the whole time. What a great film. Alec Baldwin is hilarious in this film.
60_ Munich – December 23, 2005
A Spielberg film about the true events and revenge of the horrible attack at the Munich Olympic games against the Israel team. Eric Bana leads the grou to kill one by one the terrorists responsible for the murders. What an amazing film. Everything is great about this film except for the last ten minutes which is what to expect from Spielberg films.
59_ Thank You For Smoking – March 17, 2006
I really loved this film. This about lobbyists in our nation. Lobbyists for tobacco, guns, and alcohol and how they persuade politicians and important people to keep their industry making large amounts of money. It is very good and entertaining. Pretty scary too that this actually goes on. Great writing and acting all around.
58_ The Hangover – June 5, 2009
Form the director of Old School and Road Trip comes the next film about a crazy Bachelor Party in vegas with strippers, guns, tasers, naked people, Mike Tyson, tigers and much much more. I believe this film is the highest gross out of any R rated film ever. It is very funny. Very funny. Leslie Chow.
57_ Superbad – August 17, 2007
Oh this great comedy film brought tears of laughter to my face. Oh so funny. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera are best friends in their last days of high school who have only really hung out with each other and are invited to a huge party and are asked to supply the liquor which is the “entire funness” of the party. This is their journey to accomplish this with their friend McLovin who is a cult icon now too. This film is great and has most of the Apatow gang in it. Not only does this film bring the best jokes but it also has a great heart and soul in it as well. Friendship.
56_ Serenity – September 30, 2005
Man Joss Whedon kicks ass. His vision of a sci-fi/western world is phenomenal. This was a television series before a film. The film is equally awesome as the show was. I wish more films were like this. It is entertaining, scary, funny, romantic, and pretty much all the emotions across the board in the span of two hours. This will entertain you for years to come. There is a reason all these shirts and posters say Joss Whedon is my Master now. It is true.
55_ 300 – March 9, 2007
Frank Miller’s brutal Spartan comic became a reality when director Zack Snyder took the helm and adapted it into a movie. This movies is 99% shot on a green screen with a “crush” technique that gives the film its rustic vintage look. I was wondering how they were going to turn a 32 page comic book into a whole two hour feature length film, but they did. And did it well. I saw a screener of this movie way before its initial release and it was introduced by UFC Champ Chuck Liddell. Chuck got us all in the mood for a hardcore brutal film about honor and freedom. The fight scenes were filmed extremely well and has been copied in many other movies after this one. I am referring to the normal pace to the slow- mo action beats all in one shot. The use of heavy metal music was an added booster to the balls this movies has. I really liked this movie. Very entertaining.
54_ Hot Fuzz – February 14, 2007
The second feature film from BADASS director, Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), brings us his vision of the ultimate fast paced action thriller in Hot Fuzz. This film starred the same cast as Shaun of the Dead, and was about the best police officer in London getting re-assigned to a very small quiet village. The people who live in the village are not what they seem. This film packs a huge punch of action and gut busting laughs. The end action sequence lasts about 25 minutes and is balls to the wall AWESOME. Edgar Wright can do NO wrong. I saw the U.S. premiere of this film at AFI, and met Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright, and Dolph Lundgren (who introduced the film). A great film that I will enjoy through the ages and one of the best action films EVER.
