San Diego Comic Con - Skyward Sword Trailer

Image
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has a new trailer that was released at San Diego Comic Con this week. At just shy of two minutes, this trailer features lots of new footage with bright vibrant colors. You even get to see what looks like a traveling Goron towards the end. I am definitely excited to get my hands on this game. The new footage that keeps getting released gets better and better!

In the last two weeks we have gotten glimpses of some of the dwarves that we will see in the upcoming Hobbit films. Well today Peter Jackson took it one step further and released an official image of the full dwarven company in one beautiful shot.

RBS's Quick Review - Alphas

Image
Alphas sets out into familiar waters that we have seen in recent shows but tries to take its own route. The show focuses on a group of people known as Alphas, which are people who have special abilities. This small group, with varying skills, is being used as a special ops team to track down other people with such abilities. It has the feel of a cop show with the flair of a sci-fi show which is quite interesting. The show has aired two episodes thus far and I must say that for the time being it has my interests peaked. I like the new spin on the ‘powers’ show and am glad to see that there is a little more structure than ‘random people get together’. Though she show is early on and most characters aren’t that complex there are one or two characters that are starting to branch out and develop which is nice. The group chemistry is fun to watch and many of the laughs come from the bluntness of an autistic character which makes you ask yourself if you really should be laughing. But then yo…

The Amazing Spider-Man Trailer Gets Released!

Image
The Amazing Spider-Man trailer has hit the net and fans are liking what they see! It seems that the talks of a darker Spider-Man movie was true and at first glance it looks like it has the potential to be as great as the first Spider-Man movie.
I actually really like the first person perspective at the end of the trailer.


Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows 2 - Review

Image
A theatrical journey that started in 2001 has come to an end after ten years and fans are filled with a variety of emotions. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 has officially hit the theaters and after 10 long years, movie goers will finally get to see the showdown that has been building up between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.

Let me begin by saying this is not a straight book adaptation (far from it) and if you are still expecting that then there is something wrong with your expectations. After seven movies you should be fully aware that the eighth movie will follow suit and be its own entity. After seven movies you should be able to cope with this. So I won’t be focusing so much on the differences.
*Possible Spoilers Ahead At just over two hours (2 hours 10 minutes) The Deathly Hallows Part 2 has amazing flow and at no point in the film do you feel that the story is dragging or boring. Throughout the movie you hear classic Potter riffs from John Williams intermingled wit…

'The Avengers' Trailer Leaks Onto Net

The Avengers trailer has officially hit the net but as for how long it will stay, nobody knows. Its a safe bet this will be taken down soon but take a look at what is to come. The official trailer will be shown at San Diego Comic-Con and I will hold comments on it till it debuts. Though I will point out that it looks like Captain America is wearing a new suit at 38 seconds. This version may be dark but enjoy it for what it is; a sneak peak at what fans have been anticipating for a long time.
