Discussion: Pacific Rim

Remember that one time when you were a kid and you ate way too many Swedish fish and you got the stomach ache to end all stomach aches?  Or that Halloween a few years later when you ate so much candy you puked chocolate for days?  Or how bout when you were 18 19 20 21 and you drank so much liquor you got sick as a dog?

Yea.  I hate when that happens.  Well…that’s Pacific Rim.

Yup!  I’m totally dissin’ Pacific Rim.  Nah.  Not really.  I just didn’t love it.  You can read the rest of the article, Movie Review:  Pacific Rim over at Fanboyfactor.com

My Top 5(ish) Things in July’s Previews

It’s that time of the month again…Previews!!!  What did you think I meant?  Anyway, the past few months I’ve been doing this bit as the “My Top 3 Picks from (the current month’s) Previews”.  But, for the Fanboy Factors premiere…I’m making this thing bigger!  I’m talking My Top 5(ish) Picks from July’s Previews (if I could afford it, there would’ve been a drumroll along with that announcement).  Yes!  Two more picks!  Tell me that didn’t just make your day.

But, enough of all that.  Let’s get on with the show…

Don’t you just hate stepping on them?

Then again, it’s not like any of us do, either.
Remember when I posted here about Sideshow Collectibles and their cursed, expensive, wonderful toys?  Well, the Pope left a comment on the FB page about Lego, and their cursed, expensive, wonderful toys.  Which totally took the wind out of my sails, cause I was going to mention Lego in a follow up to Sideshow.  Now, the Pope thinks he’s gonna get all the credit for giving me the idea about Lego.  And he’ll probably want a percentage of the total revenues for the month.  And if that’s the case…I have one thing to tell the Pope.  Even 75% of zero is still zero!  So nuts to you!

Just Stop Picking At It!

just stop picking at it star wars

From AICN:  Goddamnit, George…No!

I don’t love Star Wars anymore.  To be honest with you, I don’t think I like it much anymore, either.  I’m  really not one of those superfans.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’ve watched the original trilogy more than my fair share of times.  But, I don’t get my panties in a bunch when Lucas makes changes to the movies.  I really didn’t give a shit if Greedo shot first.  Or that the Emperor’s verbiage was changed in The Empire Strikes Back.  To be honest, most of the changes Lucas had made I’ve kinda liked and made sense to me.  Purists are purist, though.  So…whatever.
