The Hobbit: An Unexpected Review

Akira just got a much much much better chance for success

Akira just got a much much much better chance for success

Perhaps the best bit of news I have heard about Akira thus far. There is speculation abound that none other than Gary Oldman might sign on for the role of the Colonel. This is most definately good news.

Hollywood Out of Ideas: Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego

Hollywood Out of Ideas: Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego

That’s right. That awesome Brøderbund Software game series from the 80’s and 90’s is getting a big-screen adaptation. And because you asked for it, Jennifer Lopez is going to be taking the lead. Wait. I asked for this?

‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ meh.

‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ meh.

That’s right. Die Hard 5 has been titled, and dated. And if you are looking for a great romantic comedy to watch on Valentines day 2013, perhaps Die Hard will be the perfect thing to sweet your loved one off her feet.

Terra Nova… Terra Bad in the making?

Terra Nova… Terra Bad in the making?

Sure, I am setting out to piss someone off but having put up with two episodes of Fox’s new time-traveling-but-not-really-back-in-time-more-sideways-so-we-don’t-have-to-explain-the-time-space-continuum show, Terra Nova, I can firmly confirm that my palm is EXACTLY the same size as my face.

Tron 3, confirmed for 2013. By Tron himself!

Tron 3, confirmed for 2013. By Tron himself!

Tron Legacy was a pretty decent success, and considering the interest that we at WPR had, in some of the extra footage that was included in the Bluray release, it’s awesome news to hear  Bruce Boxleitner confirm that it is ‘in the works,’ for a 2013 release.

Is Superman going to be in 3d? Or is he just happy to see you?

Is Superman going to be in 3d? Or is he just happy to see you?

George Lucas ruined Star Wars Blu-Rays

George Lucas ruined Star Wars Blu-Rays

Oh, let’s just say that I am a little livid. Apparently the news is traveling the web-a-verse faster than Han Solo making the Kessel Run. Lucas has worked his ‘vision’ on the yet-to-be-released BluRays of Star Wars, by changing a few key elements.

I might be crazy, but I could have sworn we were told the new Zach Snyder Superman movie, Man of Steel, was NOT going to be yet another reboot. Oh well.

To boldly go where no theme park has gone before…

Some where within the nation of Jordan, (middle east) someone has managed to secure the rights to and funding for a Star Trek theme park. I didn’t know that the middle east was that into Gene Roddenberry.
