In this episode of GameTyrant Audio, I have included 5 awe-inspiring video game songs from history that I think you might dig. If you haven’t heard these, this will be an intro to some of these masterful works of art. From 16-bit era to recent gen, this music has laid the groundwork for...read more on Gametyrant
Look, you don't have to justify why you don't have the time to read the Civil War comic. I get it! You're busy! You have A LOT on your plate. I COMPLETELY understand why you don't have the time at all in the next 2 months to read one of the most critically acclaimed comics of the past 15 years.
Because you're SOOOO busy, I embedded this animated short which breaks down the entirety of Civil War as it happens in the comics. Obviously a bit of it will change in Captain America: Civil War, but you'll get the gist of it from watching this!
All my patronizing aside, thanks to Noah Sterling for making this for people who are too busy to read the series.
Sean Parker, founder of Napster, is trying to bring Civil War and other high-profile films to your home on release day. What's crazier is he has the support of guys like Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, and J.J. Abrams saying that his new service, Screening Room, is a good idea.
Screening Room, according to Guardian, is a service that will allow you to get first-run films screened directly in your home. One movie costs $50, and $20 of that goes to the theaters who would lose your business. The set-top box itself will cost $150 and will come with anti-piracy measures, and is designed to draw in an audience who does not currently go to theaters at all.
Are the obscenely wealthy not attending the movies?! $50 for a single showing of a film?! I might do that once in my life if I were able to find a bunch of people to chip in! Furthermore, I would not buy a special box for the service that I would, once again, only use once. No wonder the film industry is loving this idea...they're making out like bandits!
Maybe families with multiple children would benefit from this? From a two person household, I'm not seeing the light! Am I missing something?
You're going to see this trailer and, like I did, instantly think it's some live action viral marketing for Rise of The Tomb Raider! I think the most awesome thing about this mind blowing trailer is that it's entirely FAN MADE by the crew at Freakin Rad...Read More At Gametyrant
As someone who's watched and posted a lot of these types of trailers, I know these can typically be shaky in quality. That said, I think this is the best "recut in chronological order" trailer I've seen in a very long time. It contains 11 minutes of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage, and it gives so much! I felt like I better experienced the vibe this film is going for, got a much better feel for Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne (which I like), and even came to appreciate Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Really excited for this one.
If you're a Star Trek fan, you've likely heard of the ongoing battle between CBS/Paramount and the crowdfunded Star Trek fan film Axanar. If you haven't, CBS is suing the filmmakers, who asked for donations to help complete their film, which was a prequel to the original Star Trek series. Their first complaint to the courts was dismissed due to the non-specific nature of "copyright infringement." Now THR reports that CBS is back with a specific list of things the fan film infringed upon, including "pointy ears," yellow shirts, and the Klingon language!
Sure, Klingon was a language created by the Star Trek franchise...but is that something you can copyright?! You can't copyright the English language, so how is this any different?
We'll see how it plays out in court, but unfortunately we may have to watch this guy's home tour in a non-intergalactic translation.
It's been a while since we've had a geek film where opinions are divided 50/50 down the middle. Perhaps this video will serve as the tie breaker in the new Ghostbusters debate. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, with the help of Darren Wallace, has posted his thoughts on the new trailer...you can see his reaction below.
No...you are not about to see a 6 month old who is a prodigy at video games. This is more or less a showing in how simple and little effort it takes to beat Street Fighter V's story mode...read more on Gametyrant
When asked his opinion of the R-rated superhero movie trend, Stephen Amell pulled no punches Saturday at Chicago's Heroes and Villains Fest. The conversation started when a fan asked him what villain he would like to see for a potential (eventual) Arrow feature film. His response was pretty interesting...
"It'd be great if it were, like, a parade of villains...but overall I think it would have to be Deathstroke right?"
That first part of the response was interesting considering the shelved script for a Green Arrow film years ago that had the Green Arrow running through a gauntlet of foes in Iron Heights. Perhaps Amell is familiar with it? He kind of ran with the question at that point and really got into what he would want for a film:
"We get compared to Daredevil a lot and I love that...I always think of the things we could do if we had THEIR freedom. If we had the ability to cut off heads and show it? I absolutely would. I think an Arrow film would — SHOULD — be rated R."
He then went on to how he lovedDeadpool and loves that it's opened the table for more R-rated hero films. He even gave an interesting little connection between the film and the show:
"All the stunt people who die on the bridge scene? They're all literally the same people I kill in season one of the show! It's crazy."
I'm not at all wanting every hero film to become rated R. I did however get a little excited when I heard Amell say this! I know that Arrow has evolved throughout the course of the show... but sometimes I miss the intensity of the first season! Are you for the idea of a rated R Arrow?
