starfighter

I have a confession to make. I’ve never seen The Last Starfighter. I’m not sure how it happened, but I missed out. It’s been one of those movies that’s always been in the “meaning to see it” category and now, after seeing this modern day re-cut trailer by Tim Gonzales, it’s in my “watch it tonight” category.

Well, the trailer and my long standing crush on Lance Guest and love for Robert Preston which, now that I think about it, makes the fact that I haven’t seen the movie even more odd.

Either way, head after the break and watch this new “modern” trailer.

sandman chess

Is it me, or is there something highly poetic about playing chess with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman characters?

This set includes 32 intricately sculpted, cold-cast porcelain chess pieces and a wooden game board.

It’s estimated to arrive in July of 2015 and it’s available for pre-order now.

groot swing

One of the things that makes director James Gunn so much fun to follow on social media is just how much he enjoys other people’s expressions of love for Guardians Of The Galaxy.

For example, this picture of a Groot swing that some fans made for an upcoming reality show called Super Fans, Super Builds. He posted it to his Tumblr to show it off and let people know how much he loved it.

I want one of those swings. Now.

Okay, seriously, I give up. I just need to accept that Funko is on a mission to take over the world and prepare to tithe a percentage of my paycheck to them on a monthly basis. Because, seriously, they just keep making things that cause me to make grabby hands!

Just when I was getting over the Big Trouble in Little China POP!s and the Warcraft POP!s, they announce a new line of POP!s based on The Matrix.

Teeny Trinity is the new best thing ever.

The only upside here is that they’re not expected until March of 2015, but you can pre-order now.

Head after the break to check out the rest of the figures.

esb trailer today

Movie trailers have changed quite a bit since the original trailer was released for The Empire Strikes Back, so it’s pretty interesting to compare and contrast this version by Cameron Arrigioni. It imagines what a trailer for ESB would look like if it were made today.

My thoughts: I think it gives away too much of the plot and Han and Leia sure do look super in love. Hunh, I guess it really is like a movie trailer these days.

Watch it after the break.

I can’t be the only person who feels like Funko needs to just set up a service in which they deduct money from my account on a subscription basis and send me all the POP!s they make, can I?

Big Trouble In Little China POP!s. Seriously. So cute. We’ve got Jack, Gracie, Lo Pan, Lightning, Thunder, and Rain.
