Knights Of Badassdom: Upcoming Movie Will Kick Your Ass

Knights of Badassdom is an upcoming movie from the great Joe Lynch, an ex-g4tv.com mini-boss and crazy talented director. Badassdom tells the story of a group of live-action role-players who must battle a demon when they accidentally summon a demonic force for real. It stars Steve Zahn, Ryan Kwanten, Summer Glau, Peter Dinklage, Margarita Levieva and Jimmi Simpson.

Why am I telling you about it? For two reasons:

  1. You will like it.
  2. You should like it. Specifically, like its facebook page.

If over 1000 people hit the Facebook “like” button for this film, we’ll get to see the first publicity still for the movie. I really want to see that picture.

Mark Millar’s Superior Lands "High Profile" Star?

Posted on December 26, 2010

Mark Millar's Superior Lands

Comic book legend Mark Millar has sort of a “reputation,” if you will, for stirring the pot of rumors for upcoming projects. With a recent tweet, it seems that he’s showing no signs of stopping. Talks of a movie project for his still-new title Superior with Marvel’s creator-owned Icon label have already been swirling. However, if we were to take the word of the quirky Scotsman, then said project is set for what he is describing as “the most high profile actor of 2010.” From that quote, general speculation seems to be pointed to Leonardo DiCaprio. However, those are just opinions and we will apparently get the official word in January. Without even specifying which role the actor in question would be taking, this is one of those news tidbits that essentially serves only to tell you what you don’t know. However, another critical question one might have is: What is Superior?

As Millar tweeted:

“Huge News: Superior movie just locked down most high profile actor of 2010. Official release in January. PS Issue 3 is out today. GET SOME!!”

With its first issue having hit just this fall, the title focuses on Simon Pooni, a young boy who once had it all as a popular basketball player in school, but was struck down with multiple sclerosis and confined to a wheelchair. His imagination became his only escape, specifically with a superhero movie centered on a character called Superior. However, fate would soon have plans for Simon that would exceed merely living vicariously through fiction when he was visited by a powerful alien. Told that he was chosen out of all the people on Earth, he was give one magical wish. The result, was his transformation into the very superhero he idolized. As the living embodiment of Superior, he fights crime, while dealing with the fallout with his parents from his alleged  “disappearance” after his transformation.

So, this is essentially a take on the old Billy Batson/Captain Marvel story, but with some touching elements that make the character’s rise to greatness even more poignant. Though unlike Millar’s other recently film-adapted Kick-Ass, this is a story that focuses on a protagonist that understands each side of the coin between adulation and humility. If the “high profile” actor Millar mentioned is to be for the role of Superior himself, then judging by looks alone, is either Simon Worthington, Josh Brolin, or Jon Hamm. Surely, there would be some comic elements, in which case, Hamm may be the better choice. But who knows? It’s all rumors, thus far.

Do you have any guesses as to who Mark Millar is calling “the most high profile actor of 2010?”

TRON: Legacy [Review]

Posted on December 17, 2010
After 25 years we finally have the next installment of the TRON franchise.
Overall Feeling:
TRON: Legacy may be a film that doesn’t offer an immense amount of character or cutting edge story elements, but as a whole the film is one of the most entertaining things I’ve seen this year and it’s a complete orgy to the eyes from a visual perspective. The film may not have that same amount of computer references as the original film had, but this is still a TRON movie despite all the changes that have been made. With action that is perfectly directed and entertaining to watch, a nice cast that brings some depth and likeability to their characters and a plot that offers more than a simple tale of a guy being stuck inside a computer, TRON: Legacy has lived up to the hype and will surely please the fans of the franchise.
The Pros:
Director Joe Kosinski has created a world that perfectly encapsulates the core sensibilities of the old TRON while taking it to the next level. Visually, the movie is an absolute gem as the special effects are stellar and the design of the world is unlike anything we’ve seen before. Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and of course Jeff Bridges all turn in really good performances that help to establish a connection to the audience – or at least to me. Daft Punk’s score is a nice combination of buttery beats and orchestral arrangements that soothe the soul. There are a ton of callbacks to the original TRON including a potential set-up to a TRON: Legacy sequel.
The Cons:
Not enough scenes with TRON. While he may have a strong presence in the film, I would’ve liked to see more of Clu in action. The lack of obvious tech lingo being thrown around may disappoint the hardcore fans of the franchise.
ShogunGamer.com Rating :
9

Upon first seeing TRON as a kid in 1993 I really didn’t know what to expect from the film. Having missed out on the first few minutes but still knowing the basic jest of the plot (dude gets sucked into a computer world), my young mind was trying to process what was going on along with figuring out if the film was as dire as some had made it out to be.  Even at a young age, I knew that TRON had a reputation for being “silly” or “bombing” at the box office, but being a geek I felt compelled to watch it.
