My review of the book WARHEAD [Written by Kerry Cepero]
Ok so as some know I enjoy a good comic book, and or graphic novel as much as the next geek! I've been getting into the Company Man series since meeting the creator Pete Hernandez III a couple of years ago, and when speaking to him recently he told me about the WARHEAD book, and how it's something I should check out but to take my time with it.

See If your looking for some light reading this graphic novel isn't for you. But if you are looking to get totally captured, and taken by a story like nothing you have read in a long time then stay right there, and keep reading... You see while Warhead features a total of 247 pages it will keep you engaged all the way through, and this much I can guarantee to you! You won't be bored.

I've become an instant fan of both this series, and this book which now I'm on my second time thru it, and I can honestly say that it's an excellent addition to the storyline, and the overall mythology created here by Pete Hernandez III.

As soon as you start reading Warhead you will find yourself relating to the characters who deal with real issues, while still having what we would call "Super-powers." With this book "Warhead" Pete enlisted the help of Writer Kerry Cepero who has delivered like I said a great addition to the overall storyline. This being the very first book based on the trilogy "The Company Man" which is a comic book series created by Pete Hernandez III.

The art work, and Illustration was done by Pete Hernandez III again...

This time around Kerry Cepero takes us right into the action with character David Vega. The story starts at a US EMBASSY a white building that has stood here since 1961. "A fortified establishment which serves as a beacon between this nation and one of it's greatest friends."

After having just woken up at 3pm for graveyard guard duty which by the time the morning is over around half a million people will have died, and millions more could suffer from sickness, and it's all his fault. Soon we find David being chased by the mysterious corporate company "Daltrix," and he finds himself in the cross hairs of a radical African Military Group.

David is driven to the edge of sanity as he finds out that not all super powers are worth having...  I honestly found myself lost in this story created by Kerry Cepero who really has managed something here which I'm sure will connect with a lot of readers, and with the art work by Pete this really does have a real cinematic feel to how the story flows.

This would be an excellent book to turn into a movie someday, and I hope it's only the start of the line for books collaborated by Kerry Cepero, and Pete Hernandez III.   Together they have really created something short of a masterpiece here, and I hope more fans take note. This is about as good a book as you will find around in the indi circuit today.

If you get into Company Man I'm sure you will find that it does indeed speak to both young, and old readers in it's own way unlike many books out there do...  So with that said...

Welcome to WARHEAD!

My Rebuttle to Mark Alexander's President Obama on Zimmerman/Martin Rebutal

In one of the classiest, and probably finest moments as president, Mr Obama took on the heated debate of the Zimmerman/Martin case which has been causing major controversy all over the world of radio, tv, and print news on Friday on C-SPAN.

This case has split the nation down the middle. You are either on the side of the victim the 17 year old kid who was shot in cold blood, and murdered by an overzealous wannabe cop named George Zimmerman, and think that he got away with murder.

OR on the other side of the coin we have people who have shown support for the murderer, and think the verdict was 100% right but looking further into the case it's not shocking that mostly white republicans are on Zimmerman's side.

There are some black folks who think the verdict was fair but those are usually employed by racist ass Fox News, and or are self hating black people who hate President Obama, and are using this tragedy to further themselves in their political party. Make no mistake all these sellouts as some are calling them or Uncle Tom's as they are also being called by some are coming out in Support of Zimmerman and are again only doing so to further their own agenda.

I didn't find ANYTHING the President said to be a cause for people to bash him publically I mean this matter is a very sensitive one, and the President who is half black, and is married to a black woman, and has black children also has every right to express his thoughts on the matter, and he did before the trial when he made a very accurate statement that if he had a son he would probably look like Trayvon, and that he feels for the family, and that this is a tragic thing that happened. Yet people again racist white assholes took that, and twisted it like a knife to the back of the President.

Why wouldn't he comment on this tragedy? He did as soon as the verdict came down, and he asked for peace, and the Right wing racists took that, and over looked it, and kept asking "When is the president going to make a statement about the verdict?" Like if he had not said anything. Either they are ignorant, and stupid. OR they are trying to bait the President, and trying their hardest to trash his views on this case... Knowing full well he's got the right to have his own opinion on this matter.

First off in this country you have the right to protest, and so what is he going to do tell people not to speak their mind? Ignorance by some people after this verdict is just speaking badly for this country.

I'm all for protesting, and letting your voice be heard in a peaceful manor which doesn't result into riots or anything which harms lives. I understand the anger in the black community because these crimes just don't stop, and all to often they go un punished. Just like this case where the man who stalked, and murdered a 17 year old kid who was doing nothing but trying to get home.

George Zimmerman is a person who's been caught lying during pre trial, he's a person who was accused of molesting his cousin, he's got into problems before with the law which includes him beating up a police officer. He's not a saint by no means but you would think he was if you listened to morons on the right who have turned Trayvon the victim into some sort of nightmarish thug out trying to pick a fight MMA style.

The thing which really "grinds my gears" as Peter Griffin from Family Guy would say is how people are turning a tragedy into a platform to further their own political agendas, and using the death of an innocent kid to make a statement that he was a thug or a criminal when he had no prior record, and was a good student with a football scholorship in the works.

Then there are assholes like Mark Alexander who feel the need to take it on themselves to bash the President even in one of his finest moments as President. This only shows Mark that you are a race bating asshole.

Mark went to answer Obama like if he was having a conversation with him so I'll do the same.

Obama: I gave a preliminary statement right after the ruling on Sunday, but watching the debate over the course of the last week I thought it might be useful for me to expand on my thoughts a little bit.

Alexander: In other words, there is more political capital to be squeezed out of Martin's death.

Alex you cannot have it both ways you can't have right wing morons begging for days for the President to make a statement then bash him when he does. You sir are a moron.


Obama: I want to make sure that, once again, I send my thoughts and prayers, as well as Michelle's, to the family of Trayvon Martin.

Alexander: How about Obama offering thoughts and prayers to George Zimmerman and his family, whose lives Obama, et al., turned upside down by politicizing this case 16 months ago. Otherwise, there never would have been a trial as there was no basis for the charges -- and the jury and virtually every legal expert agree.

His life wouldn't have been turned upside down had he never stalked, and murdered the kid who's life has ended tragically, and you racist assholes seem to forget this simple fact. The kid was doing nothing wrong, and he was followed, and shot to death by a sissy wimp with a gun.


Obama: There are very few African-American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. ... There are very few African-American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. ... There are very few African-Americans who haven't had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off.

Alexander: Obama is referencing an unfortunate stereotype, unfortunate because that stereotype is well earned. Black males between the ages of 16 and 35 commit a grossly disproportionate share of crime across our nation. Until that changes, the stereotype profile will not change, nor should it. Most people of all races have decent instincts about threats to their person or property, and they respond accordingly. The problem is not that a particular demographic of our society is subject to increased scrutiny, the problem is that demographic has earned that scrutiny.

Jackal: Alexander people of all color, and nationality steal, and rob or hurt innocent people.. Not just blacks. So don't tell me that only black people commit crimes. Fact remains that criminals don't have a color or nationality. Criminals come in all shapes, and sizes, and color but racist white people still think that anytime a black person is around they will rob them. How about the black kid who recently saved the life of a little white girl? Did you even hear about that? You asshole.

What the President said was 100% correct it's just sad your too ignorant, and racist to understand.


Obama: The African-American community is also knowledgeable that there is a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws, everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws. And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case.

Alexander: The racial disparity in arrests and convictions of blacks is commensurate with the racial disparity of crimes committed by blacks. To suggest otherwise is flatly disingenuous.

Jackal: People commit crimes for the most part due to the enviroment they are raised in... If someone lives in poverty their whole lives they will eventually turn to a life of crime if someone is from a Rich family, and has a silver spoon in their mouth since birth they will probably not to crime. Not always is the case but most of the time. But for far too long in this country Black people have been abused by the system which didn't allow them to have a future!

It's only recently that some of that has started to change, and having a president who's half black has made a major difference in gaining acceptance in their own country. Yes black people spent hundreds of years as slaves, and this country was build in large part on the backs of the slaves. FACT!

But even once slavery was over racism wasn't, and they still didn't have it easy. Some white people are ignorant to such facts because they have never been in the situation that most black males find themselves in on a daily basis. I have a lot of black friends who are not thugs or criminals some have great jobs, and families. I'm the godfather to black child, and love him to death. I have black friends who make a lot of money and yet are still followed in stores, and people are still racist towards them.

This is a mind set most white americans carry because yes Black people have been forced into criminal activity to help them survive in a world that only caters to white elitists. If you are white the skys the limit. If you are black the limit is the sky. Alexander has never had racial issues due to the protection by his complexion.


Obama: Now, this isn't to say that the African-American community is naive about the fact that African-American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system, that they are disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence. It's not to make excuses for that fact, although black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context.

Alexander: They are not "disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system," they are disproportionately involved in crime. In Obama's hometown of Chicago, in the seventeen months since Trayvon Martin's death, more than 700 black men, women and children have been murdered, mostly by black men, and Obama has said not a single word about a single one of those murders. Apparently black-on-black murders do not fit the Left's race agenda. Obama then, in the same sentence he suggests "it's not to make excuses," he asserts "historical context" as an excuse. I should add that Obama makes the case that it is OK for black folks to respond to circumstances based on history, but if white folks respond to circumstances base on history, that constitutes profiling and racism -- a shining double standard.

Jackal: The crimes in Chicago are also a tragedy, and so is any senseless murder or crime. Still shouldn't take away from what happened to Trayvon, and why it's important to make sure these things don't happen again. The Stand your ground law is one of the worst laws on record, and it got a murderer off.

Obama made a clear statement don't get butt hurt because he didn't mention Chicago... He said it clear that yes "African-American community is naive about the fact that African-American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system, that they are disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence." How you can twist that to fit your agenda is pretty hilarious. You Alex are a moron.


Obama: We understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.

Alexander: Actually NOT. The "violence, poverty and dysfunction" can be traced to decades of liberal social policy, which created the urban poverty plantations upon which generations of poor blacks have been enslaved, and which have become breeding grounds for an unprecedented culture of violence besetting our whole nation.

Jackal: No Alex the president is 100% correct again, and you sir are again making up crap as you go along. People commit crime due to their situations in life, and if you are raised piss poor with no hope for a future. What do you think will happen you silly bastard?


Obama: Now, the question for me at least, and I think, for a lot of folks is, where do we take this?

Alexander: Apparently, to the political bank.

Jackal: How about to our hearts, and so we could learn to grow as a people, and learn to set aside racial differences. Instead of trying to heal the country people like this Alexander are doing nothing but splitting us more apart. Why don't you shut the hell up, and think before you talk, and stop being a moron.


Obama: I think it's important for people to have some clear expectations here. Traditionally, these are issues of state and local government -- the criminal code. And law enforcement has traditionally done it at the state and local levels, not at the federal levels.

Alexander: Then why did Obama federalize the case in the first place? Obviously he thought they would win this case. Now, he is attempting to punt the blame back to "the state and local levels."

Jackal: How about no! He's simply stating that hey this is a state issue, and not a federal issue but understand the reasons why people want to bring up a Civil rights suit. Trayvons civil rights were clearly violated, and if you were not a racist you would see that.

Obama: Number one, precisely because law enforcement is often determined at the state and local level, I think it'd be productive for the Justice Department, governors [and] mayors to work with law enforcement about training at the state and local levels in order to reduce the kind of mistrust in the system that sometimes currently exists.

Alexander: But Obama and his NeoCom cadres fomented the distrust in this case, as they do with every political opening -- and to suggest now that he will step in with training to correct the situation is arrogant and ludicrous. We already know that Obama thinks police "act stupidly."

Jackal: Alex it's not just the president who thinks that... The facts have always said the same. Police officers do act stupid. Like not giving a drug or alcohol test to the shooter but doing it on the victim. Nothing but stupidity at it's finest. Or maybe like Alex they saw a black man shot, and said "well he clearly caused this fight! He must have he's black!" without looking at the facts in the case.


Obama: I think it would be useful for us to examine some state and local laws to see if they are designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of altercations and confrontations and tragedies that we saw in the Florida case, rather than diffuse potential altercations.

Alexander: Florida's "stand your ground" law, as well as those of 22 other states, do not encourage tragedies, they prevent them.

Jackal: Wrong again what happened in this Trayvon Martin case was a tragedy you imbicil.


Obama: I just ask people to consider if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?

Alexander: No. Zimmerman did not attack Martin. Martin attacked Zimmerman, case closed. And for the record, more blacks, as a percentage of the population in Florida, have invoked the "stand your ground" defense than whites or Hispanics -- or even "white hispanics."

Jackal: So you were there? You know for a fact that the kid being chased for no reason who was not told why he was being followed was the attacker? Why because he's black? Were you there? Did you see Martin attack him? Was anyone calling about a black man chassing a poor helpless white guy with skittles in his pockets, and an ice tea in his hand? WTF Where do you even come up with it? Oh yea you heard the shooter tell his lie, and you bought it because well Alexander you are a racist, and a fucktard. Case closed.


Obama: "If a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different."

Alexander: Yes, it would have been very different because "white hispanic" on white does not play with the political agenda of the first "white black" president. Thus, nobody would ever have heard about it. Likewise, there have been seven clear cases of black-on-white hate crimes assaults and murders in the last week alone, but not a word from Obama on those.

Jackal: Again taking an acurate statement by the President, and trying to spin it into something it's not. Had Trayvon been white he would not have been followed. Zimmerman admitted to racially profiling him when he said that he followed him because there were robberies in the block in the past 11months done by blacks. He saw a black kid, and chased him. You are wrong once again ALEX.


Obama: We need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African-American boys? There are a lot of kids out there who need help who are getting a lot of negative reinforcement. And is there more that we can do to give them the sense that their country cares about them and values them and is willing to invest in them?

Alexander: The best place to start would be to reverse the liberal social policies that created the problem.

Jackal: No the first way would be for you to shut the fuck up Alex!


Obama: Finally, I think it's going to be important for all of us to do some soul-searching.

Alexander: Start with your own soul, Obama, if you haven't completely sold it out.

Jackal: And Alexander you have no soul! There is a special place in hell for fucktards like you.


Obama: You know, there has been talk about should we convene a conversation on race. I haven't seen that be particularly productive when politicians try to organize conversations. They end up being stilted and politicized, and folks are locked into the positions they already have.

Alexander: Obama launched the Zimmerman/Martin "conversation on race" so on this point, he is correct.

JackaL: Obama was right about everything he said, and you sir are wrong on every statement you made. You are an asshole... FACT!


Obama: Finally, ask yourself ... am I wringing as much bias out of myself as I can; am I judging people, as much as I can, based on not the color of their skin but the content of their character? That would, I think, be an appropriate exercise in the wake of this tragedy.

Alexander: This from the titular head of the Democrat Party, which has turned Martin Luther King's challenge about color and character upside down. Indeed, for Obama and the Left, color trumps character.

Jackal: And you Alex your character is one covered with a white pointed hoodie. Go fuck yourself.

I'm done... This Alexander guy is a total tool for the right racist FOX NEWS.

[inside] Tha Jackals Head [The Zimmerman Verdict] America in SHOCK!

So after a year, and many weeks of court the verdict of Not guilty was given by a clearly lunatic bunch of Jurors. The man GUILTY of killing Trayvon Martin has been set free.

The entire justice system is broken folks. We now can kill children, and get away with it in Florida. First Casey Anthony, and now George Zimmerman.

Tonight the fall out over the Not Guilty verdict is here… This is an incredible miscarriage of justice.

Open lines I want to hear from anyone who has an opinion on this case, and also I will play audio from the case, and will speak my mind on this trial. Or Miss trial as it really it is.

The state attorneys who prosecuted this case should all lose their license. They were horrible in this case, and fumbled their way into a loss. I believe they did this on purpose as they were paid off. This is the only way they could have messed up this bad.

There was truly no justice for Trayvon, and now a murderer walks free… There will never be justice for an innocent 17 year old kid who did nothing wrong other then be a black teenager in a white neighborhood.

Art Bell says he won't be returning to radio!

Very sad for all us fans of his show but looks like radio legend Art Bell isn't coming back to radio anytime soon. At least that's what he just said.

Turns out we did come close to getting him back on radio, and from the looks of his post he's not very happy with the current state of Coast 2 Coast AM the show he built, and created.

As sad as it is knowing he's not coming back to radio honestly I can't blame him for saying no. Radio is very demanding, and he's got a wife, and daughter. He should spend his time with them, and living a relaxed happy life, and so I wish him well, and I'm happy to see that he's happy.

That's all that matters... Here is a post he put up a few hours ago on his facebook wall telling his fans that he decided against returning to radio.

Coast 2 Coast AM has become rather stale the last few years. I've all but stopped listening really the last few months, and don't miss it much. Art Bell returning to radio would be amazing, and sure we all want it but he's not getting any younger, and he's got a family he wants to spend time with. Cannot blame him one bit. Good for you Art. Enjoy life brother. 

Any thoughts on his decision on turning down his two proposals? Drop a comment below!

‘Star Wars’ 3D Re-Releases Cancelled by Disney in order to focus on "Episode VII"

In what can be called as upsetting news to some of us who were looking forward to watching these movies out on 3D Disney has announced that they will not go forward with the 3D releases of the Prequels or the original series in theaters.

As many know The Phantom Menace was released last year, and while it didn't break box office records it did bring in about $43 million domestically, and a total of $103million world wide which did cover the conversion cost, and earned Lucasfilms a nice profit. So it was worth it, and I know a lot of people who were more hyped about the last two then The Phantom Menace, and of course we all where waiting to see the originals back on the big screen in 3D so this is a sad day to report that they will now not release them at least not for now. [by: Alex Maidy] has reported on their site the following.
The latest decision from the studios is the choice to cancel the releases of all 3D conversion of the STAR WARS movies in favor of focusing on development of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and beyond. I think this is the right move and not just because 3D re-releases are a waste of time. Up until the merger, STAR WARS was relegated to ancillary products since there were no big screen prospects in sight. Now that Lucas has loosened his grip on the series, focus can now be given to making blockbuster movies.
I would assume that at this point in the process, they would have at least been close to completing the 3D conversion on EPISODE II or III, but you never know. I am sure the lackluster reception for STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE in 3D had something to do with this decision. So, if things go well with progress on STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, we may see these all on the big screen someday.

Didn't shock me honestly while it's still upsetting news it makes sense if you are making another trilogy don't over saturate the market with Star Wars to the point that it gets watered down.

And honestly the 3D FX While great, and I enjoyed the movie again in theaters on 3D I'm sure they will use 3D for the new movies. So it's not the end all be all of Star Wars on 3D, and I can wait on these other 3D conversions if it means them focusing on making the best Star Wars films possible for the new movies coming out.

But what do you think? Should Disney/Lucasfilms have released the others in 3D? We had the prequels this year planned, and the originals next year as planned. What would you have liked to have seen them do? Or did they do the right thing? Tell me in the comments.

Samsung Electronics' smartphone The Galaxy S3 has now taken the title as the world's best-selling smartphone! Since last quarter anyway...

Tossing out the Apple iPhone, which has had the title for about two years, research firm Strategy Analytics said.

An estimate 18 million Galaxy S3 models in the third quarter sold last year, compared with iPhone 4S sales of 16.2 million. Take that iPhone!

The flagship Galaxy S3 saw Strong sales at the end to take the title for the year, and also it's won over most of the smartphone public even iPhone users now wish they could switch. There is no phone better on the market right now, and the GS3 which comes with a large 4.8 inch touchscreen - helped Samsung post a record $7.3 billion operating profit in the July-September quarter.

Oh, and the Galaxy SIV is on it's way soon. Apple stop player hating, and get your act together.
"Samsung's Galaxy S3 has proven wildly popular with consumers and operators across North America, Europe and Asia," said analyst Neil Mawston, adding the new iPhone 5 would likely reclaim the top spot for Apple in the current quarter. (Reporting by Tarmo Virki; Editing by David Holmes)

Apple drops patent claim vs Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

You know what's funny? I don't understand how Apple won the lawsuit. There is a major difference between both iPhones, and the Galaxy S3. The iPhone sucks, and the Galaxy S3 doesn't. lol Major difference.

I recently showed off my GS3 to a friend who has the latest iPhone, and she's not a tech nerd she just got it because everyone says apple is the best right?

So she went with apple she had to be like everyone else.. But wait the GS3 has been kicking iPhones ass recently which is why Apple is all emo butt hurt, and has been laying the lawsuits at Samsung.

But See 5 simple minutes with my phone and my friend was cursing at how horrible her phone is compared to mines, and how she wanted now to take her phone back, and get a GS3.

Again Apple stop bitching like bitches, and trying to sue companies into submission, and make a better product. I don't get how people are so stupid they actually buy Apples bullshit products.

Are we not living in a society where we have a free market? So why are they not letting others compete? This is a joke. I lost all respect for Apple, and will never buy any of their garbage products. From iPhones to iPads they all iSucks as far as I'm concerned.

Screw APPLE! I hope they go out of business... Here is the report.

The Samsung
Galaxy S3 Mini.

Apple has agreed to withdraw patent infringement allegations against Samsung's new Galaxy S3 Mini in exchange for assurances that the South Korean electronics giant will not market the smartphone in the U. Apple disclosed the agreement today in a filing with the U.S. District Court for Northern California.

The iPhone maker requested last month that the new smartphone and other Samsung products be added to the ongoing patent dispute between the two companies. Samsung countered that the S3 Mini was unavailable for purchase in the United States, however Apple noted that the new smartphone was listed on Amazon's U.S. storefront and had been purchased and delivered to multiple U.S. addresses.
"Apple will agree to withdraw without prejudice its request to include the Galaxy S III Mini in this case given Samsung's representation that it is not making, using, selling, offering to sell, or importing that product into the United States," Apple said in its filing.
The unlocked phone quietly appeared on Amazon last month, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and featuring a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a dual-core 1-gigahertz processor, 1 gigabyte of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. While the new phone supports either T-Mobile USA or AT&T, it lacks support for any 4G LTE connectivity.
Apple had previously argued that the device infringed on the same patents included in its $1.5 billion verdict against Samsung. However, Apple has been unsuccessful in securing sales bans. Representatives for Apple and Samsung declined to comment.

Will JJ Abrams will still be involved with Star Trek 3?

Now that word is out that JJ is the new director of STAR WARS Episode VII word also has come out that he will still continue on his Star Trek adventure, and possibly even as director. No nerd should have this much power!

Well for sure it's certain he will indeed be on as producer but yes he might still have a chance to come back, and direct the next installment of the Trek series.

All he would have to do is jump right back into it after he finished STAR WARS. When the news broke last night most fans thought to themselves well what's the future hold for Star Trek now?  The answer didn't take long.

Well now we know that Abrams is set to serve as a producer on both the third Star Trek movie and the next Mission Impossible (presumably under his 'Bad Robot' banner). Today it was confirmed by Rob Moore Vice Chairman of Paramount Studios"J.J. will continue to develop projects for us including a new ‘Mission: Impossible,’ and he is committed to produce another ‘Star Trek," he said. Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that Abrams won't direct the third installment like I said all he would have to do is just go from Star Wars back to Star Trek, and continue forward if he chose too.

However, that may end up being dependent on whether or not Disney will want him back for Episode VIII & VIII bbecause they want to turn out new movies every 2 years. So this brings up a new question... Is this deal for the new trilogy of STAR WARS Films? Or just Episode VII?

The force is strong with JJ Abrams... Disney confirms!

Looks like the Disney people have confirmed the news, and yes it's now official Star Trek, and Super 8 director JJ Abrams will indeed be at the helm of the new Star Wars movie.

We spoke about this possible leaked news yesterday on the show "The Answer to movie troll insanity" which airs on on 9pm est. We discussed this, and we all agreed that this was probably for the best but we all were sort of disappointed at it because we were expecting him to be true to his word which was that he wasn't going to do the movie. But it turns out the joke is on us! Because as Disney has released the news is out now, and yes he will direct it, and even was quoted on the major move.

J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII, the first of a new series of Star Wars films to come from Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy. Abrams will be directing and Academy Award-winning writer Michael Arndt will write the screenplay.

“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie,” said Kennedy. “J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”
George Lucas went on to say “I’ve consistently been impressed with J.J. as a filmmaker and storyteller. He’s an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film and the legacy couldn’t be in better hands.”

“To be a part of the next chapter of the Star Wars saga, to collaborate with Kathy Kennedy and this remarkable group of people, is an absolute honor,” - J.J. Abrams said. “I may be even more grateful to George Lucas now than I was as a kid.”

J.J., his longtime producing partner Bryan Burk, and Bad Robot are on board to produce along with Kathleen Kennedy under the Disney | Lucasfilm banner.

Also consulting on the project are Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg. Kasdan has a long history with Lucasfilm, as screenwriter on The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Return of the Jedi. Kinberg was writer on Sherlock Holmes and Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Abrams and his production company Bad Robot have a proven track record of blockbuster movies that feature complex action, heartfelt drama, iconic heroes and fantastic production values with such credits as Star Trek, Super 8, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, and this year’s Star Trek Into Darkness. Abrams has worked with Lucasfilm’s preeminent postproduction facilities, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound, on all of the feature films he has directed, beginning with Mission: Impossible III. He also created or co-created such acclaimed television series as Felicity, Alias, Lost and Fringe.

Anyway this is good news right? I mean this guy brought Star Trek back from the dead! I mean it was fucking dead, and as dead as it could be, and he not only brought it back he made the biggest Star Trek movie of all times at the box office  both international, and domestic. SO With that said Star Wars with him as Director will be probably the biggest movie of all times.

Seriously this has the chance of being that big! Phantom Menace could have been the biggest movie ever due to the hype it had, and all the fanboys wanting it to see it so bad. The movie not being that good, and the poor word of mouth stopped it short of 500Million domestic.

Still made tons of money, and with them having their flaws I enjoyed them, and watch them from time to time, and there are a lot of great things about the prequels. Just like there are many bad things. They aren't perfect by no means.

Still Phantom Menace almost made a run at it but Titanic also was out, and that movie took in the fanbase S.W never had! Horny teenage girls who had the hots for an actor. One major mistake George Lucas made was in not casting Leo as Anakin Skywalker or someone as good an actor as the role needed.

He went with an unknown who couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. NOW We have a chance to redeem all that, and maybe this will finally be the movie the majority of Star Wars fans have been waiting for.

The story of Anakin or Darth Vader is over so nothing we can do short of a total reboot in 30 years. But who wants that anyway? I say just move forward, and let's see what Luke Skywalker, Leia, and Han Solo are up to these days.

35 years after the Battle of Endor... What new dangers are there for our hero's to face? I just hope Luke is played by Mark Hamill, and it's a follow up tale where he's the wise old Jedi. I just don't want them to recast the roles with new actors. I HATE THAT SHIT.

Either way this is in all good news having someone like Jar Jar Abrams (Sorry that's just too easy not to use Jar Jar) on a movie like this will bring respect to the series again, and will add a lot of fanboy hype.

I fully expect the Trekkie's to be mad, and wouldn't doubt if they make a big deal about it once the next chapter of Trek is out after the movie this year. Which will have a different director I'm sure. Maybe they can make another movie to compete on 2015 with Episode 7.

I originally didn't want Abrams because he directed Trek, and I don't want the films to look to much a like in style or the way they are cut together but I have seen all his movies, and he is some what of a chameleon when he wants to be. He can make a movie which doesn't normally look like a typical Abrams flick. Mission Impossible 3 comes to mind. But one thing is for sure! Even those movies have one signature thing. Lens flare!

Get ready for an epic amount of Lens Flare!!
In a galaxy far far away!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I sense a great disturbance in the force... And can someone get that lensflare out of my face? I mean seriously enough with the Lensflares!

Ok so the word is out on the street kids, and the word is that JJ Abrams director of the last Star Trek movie that was out in 2009, and the director of the one coming out this year "Star Trek into Darkness" is ditching his Trekkie nerds for Star Wars Nerds.

Now this comes from a site called "TheWrap" They are making the claims to have an inside source that has leaked them the information that after months of back, and forth, and even a denial by JJ that he would direct it looks like Lucas/Disney have found their ubber dork... err director to return us to the Galaxy far far away.

First let me introduce you to what you have in store...Lensflare!!!!!

J.J. Abrams will direct the next "Star Wars" film for Disney, taking stewardship of one of Hollywood's most iconic and lucrative film franchises, an individual with knowledge of the production told

 "Argo" director Ben Affleck was also in contention, another individual with knowledge of the talks told TheWrap.

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm last year and announced it would make new "Star Wars" films, fans, members of the media and industry executives have speculated about which director would take the job. Abrams' name always came up, but he told Entertainment Weekly in November that he wasn't going to take the job.

  • He did say "Star Wars" was the first movie that "blew my mind" in terms of special effects.

Lucasfilm Chief Kathleen Kennedy has been courting Abrams, one of the most successful directors and producers in Hollywood -- and a man beloved by fanboys. He runs one of the industry's top production companies, Bad Robot, and created or co-created television franchises like "Lost," "Fringe" and "Alias." He has also directed film spectacles "Mission: Impossible III," "Star Trek" and "Super 8."

The lure of the Jedi was too strong, and it will no doubt complicate his relationship with Paramount, where Bad Robot is a top supplier. Abrams has been feverishly working on "Star Trek Into Darkness," his second Star Trek film since he rebooted the franchise in 2009. "Into Darkness," still in post-production, opens May 18.

Though he has several producing jobs in front of him, Abrams had been uncommitted as a director. He will have to jump right into "Star Wars," which Disney has slated for a 2015 release. "Little Miss Sunshine" screenwriter Michael Arndt is penning the script.

Reached by TheWrap, Lynne Hale, spokeswoman for Lucasfilm, declined to comment immediately. Neither CAA, which represents Abrams, nor Bad Robot immediately responded to requests for comment.
So there it is folks! We have a new director? Maybe? It's not been confirmed yet by Disney or Lucasfilms but I will bring you the latest as it breaks. The galaxy far far away now might have taken it's first steps into darkness... If true I have mixed emotions about this. I mean he's responsible for the best Star Trek movie to date sure, and the sequel looks fantastic. But this is why I have mixed emotions.

He's doing such a great job on Trek I would hate to see him repeat Bryan Singers mistake. See Singer left X MEN after 2 movies which the public likes, and embraced him with. He left to make Superman Returns which turned out to be more like Singerman Returds.

His career has never been the same, and after years of fanboys bitching we never got a sequel to his Superman movie, and he has not directed anything notable since.

Unless you count the pilot turned tv movie of Mockingbird lane (Munsters Remake) as anything special. Personally hated it by the way.

I like JJ As a director, and have enjoyed his work until now... But I have a bad feeling about this.

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Script Has ALL Eleven Doctors

PM2687668@I Have recently become a fan of the show Dr. Who over the last couple of months at the advise of some friends who told me that I needed to watch this show that it would be something I liked. I have heard from many people about the show over the years, and I had seen some of the older episodes pre the 2005 relaunch, and to be honest I had never been very impressed with the series. But there is something to say about what has been done with this new series which now enters it's very special 50th anniversary show. While they do a special every year, and they seem to always pay tribute to the show's origins some how. This year it will be something very special as has reported the following.
As of today Steven Moffat has confirmed that he is completing a script that will feature the current Doctor, Matt Smith, facing a foe so great that he will need assistance from all ten of the previous TARDIS inhabitants. That’s right, rumors say Eccleston is in!!! The producers have gotten agreements from all living actors who have ever played the Doctor; Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith. With some studio special effects they have even resurrected William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, and Jon Pertwee.
This is awesome news for anyone who's a fan of the series, and like myself a fan of the current show mostly. It's going to be very near to see actors "Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith" all on the screen together. I think it was mostly the charisma of Eccleston that won me over, and made me a fan early on in the first season, and I was very disappointed to find out he only did one season before being replaced by David Tennant who to his credit really did a fine job in the role himself, and only took about 3 or 4 episodes for me to accept him as the new Doctor, and again when he was replaced I was a bit disappointed. But that's the thing about the show. As a fan one must get used to the change of the Doctor, and accept it, and move on. This show can last forever literally since they can simply regenerate the doctor into a new body after a few seasons with a main actor. Having the older actors on the show again should be a lot of fun! I Don't know how they are going to pull this off but this sounds like a really epic way to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Doctor. Now I've heard the rumblings that Matt Smith wants to leave the show soon due to the overload of work he's having to put in to make the show. He's been a lot of fun as the Doctor in a comedic way, and has slowly grown on me. They all have brought their own quality, and charisma to the show, and while many many fans miss David Tennant who seems to be the main fan favorite of the new 3 Doctors it's Christopher Eccleston who I'm most excited to see return for the special. I hope this isn't some cheesy scene on the computer where they flash scenes from past episodes tho. That would be lame. I can't wait to see the rest of this season, and see what happens, and if Matt Smith makes it all the way past it, and comes back. Either way make sure you don't miss this season when it picks back up.

Guillermo Del Toro turns down STAR WARS EPISODE VII

So Guillermo Del Toro becomes the latest director to turn down STAR WARS EPISODE VII which shouldn't shock many as a lot of directors which the fan-boys want are the type of people who like to "Create" their own universes, and like to develop films which haven't been done before or take adaptions to the big screen on properties which haven't been touched like Del Toro, and Hellboy.

With that said I'm as big a Del Toro fan as any, and have always wanted to see what he could do in the Star Wars or Lord of the Rings universe. We almost got to see him Direct the Hobbit but Peter Jackson eventually got his hands on that property.

But Star Wars was the one which always seemed more up Del Toros alley. So it came with sad news to hear that he has turned down the next Star Wars movie due out in 2015. Del Toro admits that he was indeed offered the job, but had to turn it down due to having so much on his plate already. However, he does give the name of the man he would love to see take the reigns instead.
"We got one phone call to my agent saying, 'Is Guillermo interested?' And basically I have so much stuff already of my own, and I'm pursuing stuff that I'm generating already..It was very flattering. It was just a phone call, it didn't go past that, it was very nice to be asked, but believe it or not, I'm busy enough."
Del Toro said. "As a geek, I would have loved to see Brad Bird take it." for those who are not familiar with Bird's work he was the director on  Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol which most fans agree was an excellent film in a series which had lost some of it's luster with the third movie. He's also responsible for such great animations as "Ratatouille" and " The Iron Giant" Bird would seem to be a nice fit for the Star Wars universe.

Now I don't know if Disney wants one director for the trilogy or if they will have different directors for each film. I would rather see the later myself.While Bird would be a good fit, and a good suggestion he does seem to have some other projects in the way one with George Clooney called 1952 (pre-production) and another called 1906 (pre-production) I think the movie names being years might just be an odd coincidence. But either way he has two movies in pre production, and might not be available to get a major motion picture like Star Wars off the ground in the next two years. Which is what is needed.

The director I personally think would be the best choice is Matthew Vaughn who made the only X men movie I've enjoyed to date.  X-Men: Days of Future Past and sadly took himself out of the directors chair for the sequel in a very odd, and mysterious way. Almost as if to make sure he's available for another project which might come his way that is bigger then X MEN.
He's also the man who brought us Kick-Ass, and Layer Cake both great movies. He's done very good work in his few directing gigs he's impressed a lot of people. I think something as big as Star Wars is right up his alley.

It's becoming clear that the Star Wars franchise may be more challenging than Disney had originally thought.. At least finding a director!

First, J.J. Abrams passed on taking on the role of director, he announced he was sticking with Star Trek out of loyalty to that series. And not that they called him, but Quentin Tarantino wasn't too interested either. Honestly neither of those two would have been right anyway so it's no loss. But there is a good list of candidates still out there with Matthew Vaughn right on top of my list.

Another good candidate available other then Matthew Vaughn or Brad Bird would have to be Iron Man (2008) director Jon Favreau who also like Vaughn, and Bird would be an ideal choice. His history would seem to show us that he can take on epic films like Star Wars, and deliver a great movie.

So the force is strong with us right now... Only time will tell who will end up getting the gig but whoever it is better be ready for his or her life to change forever. Star Wars is bigger then any other movies. This is why I'm not shocked so many are passing on it.

2015 cannot get here quick enough... So who would you like to see in the directors chair?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected disappointment

First off I want to say that I am a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, and own the books, dvds, blu rays, and a few other items as a fan of the universe he created, and Peter Jackson brought to life on the big screen.

While yes I am a bigger Star Wars fan then I am Lord of the Rings fan I will say that as books go Tolkien's work is priceless, and while I was extremely excited for the past few years about this movie.

Last time I remember being this hyped up about any film I would have to go back to the Fellowship of the Rings which was a very good movie that did everything it had to do just right.

But I don't think I've been this let down in more then a decade. I mean I think maybe the sequel to the Matrix was a bigger let down for me then this but not by much. Not by much at all. In fact this movie is so bad at times that one has to wonder if it was made bad on purpose out of some grudge being held by Peter Jackson for all the shenanigans that went on for years with the studios, and him concerning this trilogy.

There is a long dark history attached to getting the Hobbit to the big screen, and to be honest It's almost as if this was his way to pay the studio back for anything they put him through. It's about the only thing which makes sense unless we consider that Peter Jackson isn't the master Director some nerds have pegged him to be since he wrapped up the Rings trilogy.

But to the root of the matter this movie fails to capture the heart of Tolkien's characters, and the main issue with it is the slow pace the movie suffers from. This is due to the movie being stretched out to three pictures was a bad idea. This has become clear after watching this first movie. Now we have 2 more movies to go.

The film suffers from terrible character development, and it all starts with the Dwarves who were not developed as characters at all compared to LOTR where u got to know, and like each of the characters.

This move felt as it spent more time finding who looks funny dressed up rather then actors who would bring something epic to their roles, and we are left with characters which feel  out of touch with the rest of the movie. Which leads me to my issues with the over use of comedy. This movie tries way to much to be funny.

I mean did George Lucas have something to do with the humor in this movie? Because honestly this felt as bad as Jar Jar Binks in Phantom Menece. I mean Literally in one scene the dwarves fall through a door and a "bowling pins knocked over" sound effect is played.

Too much is played for laughs, and not enough storyline is developed... There is so much hype build up to a very anti climactic ending.

I know there are two movie coming out still... This could be the main problem. The Hobbit is a weak book compared to LotR already as it is! To stretch it out to 3 movies really makes me think that the sequels aren't going to be much better, and we might be looking at another 30minute exit scene like in "Return of the King."

I was very hyped about this movie but after watching it I now find myself less interested then I was for Attack of the Clones. Maybe Peter Jackson should have stayed away from this movie, and had allowed Del Torro to direct it as planned at one point because Peter Jackson to me was going thru the motions on this movie, and his directing has got worse over the last decade not better.

Peter Jackson has a long body of work which includes a lot of stinkers like "King Kong," "Dead Alive," and many other turds. In fact look at his IMDB his only good work has been The Lord of the Rings movies, and even those have many flaws to them. Like the earlier mentioned 30minute exit scene at the end of Return of the King.

The fact is that Peter Jackson isn't the skilled master director that some think, and he's crafted a very expensive, very cartoonist, very boring movie to start a trilogy. I was expecting so much more then this but I pray he fixes some of the overwhelming issues, and flaws from his first movie.

I hope there is enough story to make the next two movies worthy of making this a trilogy at the end, and that this doesn't turn into the next prequel trilogy most fanboys love to hate for years to come.

Either way I'm let down by this movie, and haven't been this let down in many years.
