I consider this Lame with a capital L. Variety reported yesterday the Ghostbusters video game set for release this October may never reach stores due to merger of Activision and Vivendi Games, now called Activision Blizzard. Someone's not happy and it's not just the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Enjoy! (If you'd like to view it in HD click here.)
I'm always excited for the Harry Potter films but this trailer looks amazing. They really seem to have gotten the dark mood just right for this one. Young Voldemort (Tom Riddle) is being played by Ralph Fiennes' nephew Hero Fiennes-Tiffin who I expect to be in my nightmares tonight. He's that good. Half-Blood Prince hits theaters (not soon enough) November 21st.
At this point it would probably be more productive to try and figure out which Batman characters AREN'T going to be in the game. The Lego series usually has over 80 which leaves a lot of room for even the lesser-knowns, though there will be multiple Batman's, Robin's and Nightwing's for sure . We'll probably wind up getting some non-Batman characters as un-lockables as well. Maybe Superman and Wonderwoman? (Crossing my fingers for Zatanna!)

He actually went inside Mongul and came out his eye. It was amazing. I actually cheered and comics rarely make me speak out-loud. The distraction gave the Lanterns what they needed and they blasted Mongul back to the planets surface where Mother Mercy's children are currently feasting on his body.

"He smiled and gave the stock answer that he'd love to play the character and that Captain America has always been his favorite comic book superhero. Clearly, though, the notion did not take him by surprise and he ended up admitting there had been discussions with his agents and meetings on that very issue."

They're actually reporting that the Christian Voice has an issue with this new Black Canary doll. She's part of Mattel's fall line of collector edition Barbie's that also include Batgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman and some REALLY creepy baby dolls of Batman and Catwoman.
I remembered seeing it was going on-sale months ago but completely forgot about it until Freakgirl and Geekboy reminded me today. I was turned on to Spaced this year by my boyfriend and a few other friends who told me I'd love it. I'm usually hesitant when people push something on me like that but I eventually gave in and...I loved it of course.

Stakes (no pun intended) are high as Buffy is charged, once again, to reseal the Hellmouth. The original story is being penned by Robert Deshotel, writer of one of my favorite Buffy episodes, The Puppet Show. Strangely enough, the game is set after the Season Seven finale but you'll be able to explore Sunnydale High and the Bronze. If you're a fan of the show you realized that's a rather obvious contradiction. None of those places exist after season seven. I guess it's safe to say this game is not canon but rather holding hands with canon.

One trade of the Vertigo title Exterminators was enough for me. Not that it was bad, it just grossed me out way too much to keep reading. But if you're into that sort of thing you'll be happy to know the title has been picked up for development by Showtime.

You are all well aware I have no problem with costumes. In fact, I usually encourage them. That being said, I saw two teenagers sitting outside the mall today in full Dragon Ball gear. I considered taking a picture and asking them why but then I thought better of it.
I had been wondering whether or not Poison Ivy was going to make an appearance in the Lego Batman game coming out in September. I assumed she had was going to be included, especially with the number of characters usually involved in the Lego games, but now I've got proof. And she's very redhead.

"Hellboy would much rather sit and eat a pizza and watch a Marx Brothers movie than go out and save the world." - Ron PerlmanThe second, Mike Mignola, Hellboy creator, didn't see character's success coming, is a candid interview with Mignola and how after all his success he still worries no one likes his work. My favorite quote comes from his experience working on concept art for Bram Stoker's Dracula:
"As a reward for the little bit of stuff I did, Francis [Ford Coppola] invited me up to watch a rough cut of the picture," says Mignola. "I assumed it was going to be a dozen guys, but it was just me, him and George Lucas. At that point I was thinking, 'Well, my life has taken an odd turn.' It was pretty weird."
"If you have ever wondered what was going bump in the night, the video game 'Hellboy: The Science of Evil' has the answer. It's Hellboy punching the forces of darkness. Repeatedly." - Stu Horvath
