Latest Star Wars rumours seem to have been focused on who would direct the latest in the franchise. Now it has been chosen (Imagine I said that in the style of Yoda….) JJ Abrams!

Well, I would have to agree that it would seem one of the better choices of director, I’m no fan of Trek, but the reboot was pretty cool. He admits that growing up he was more of a Star Wars fan than Star Trek, so hopefully he’ll kick ass!

Trust me, it could have been worse, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say. This will either make or break him in legendary terms in movie history.

we will see….

Release date for Jurassic Park 4 confirmed

14 Jan

BBC – Newsbeat – Release date for Jurassic Park 4 confirmed by Universal.

Fans of Jurassic park should be stoked at this news, as another film is in the works. Its about time they finally got off their butts and got around to it after years of faffing about.

No real details of cast or plot, but as long as we have dinos Vs humans, that’ll do for me!

13th June 2014 is slated for its release (no doubt in 3D as is the trend nowadays) and with the involvement of Kathleen Kennedy, who is now Lucasfilm head, we can expect heavy involvement by them too.

Lets hope with the likes of Spielberg, Lucasfilm and now Disney, they can refresh the saga, and give us some more great monster movies!

Disney buying Lucasfilm, Star Wars Episode 7 coming in 2015 | Den of Geekalt.

OMG! jeezuz I can’ t believe it, Lucas has sold Lucasfilm and its other companies to the big bad Disney corp! It’s reported that a massive 4 Billion and odd dollar deal has been done to secure his “retirement” fund!

I can see Walt Disney’s frozen head in a block of carbonite right now! Lets just hope that StarWars episode 7, 8, 9 and beyond are going to be better than the prequels. My question is, what about the planned Star Wars “Underworld” series? Will this just be watered down for kiddie Disney XD? or abandoned all together?

Time will tell.

Quackers over Cthulhu, Disney style….

26 Sep

Quite accidentally I came across something funny, the web is a strange,but informative place.

It so happens that Cthulhu has an alternate version of himself, albeit in Walt Disney style, and a duck. The result is an entity called “Duckthulhu”

Image

If any of you are old enough to remember the cartoon “Darkwing Duck“, a spin off of “Duck tales” with scrooge McDuck etc. Neither of the cartoons were any good to be honest, and if you did miss out on watching them, you really didn’t miss anything at all. The surprising thing is that this is from the comic version (which I didn’t know existed either) which I believe has quite a following.

Image

I was never keen on any Disney pap, but Duckthuhu might grow on me. (Not like an organism, but a fondness!) Whatever will be next? In the mountains of Mouseness? All I can say is Mr Lovecraft would be surprised at how successful he was in the long run. It’s a shame that he died before he saw how much a part of popular culture he was to become.
