Stuff You Need to Know: Comic-Con Fallout Edition

Very quickly, because some of us have lives…the high points from this past weekend. The stuff you actually do need to know. More fallout, I’m certain, is coming. Sort of like winter. But the fallout won’t take several books. Count on it.

  • Before you get all excited about World’s Finest (or whatever they end up calling it), just remember: we’ve been here before. And the fact that they’re doing this instead of Man of Steel 2 and then leading on into Justice League says to me that they have very little confidence in the road they’re on. Also, Christian Bale said he was out–but that might just be him asking for more money. Who knows? Regardless, it is way too early to start lining up for it. Fancy logo or not. Source.

New Era Cap has just launched a line of G.I. Joe caps and we’ve got four of the Snake Eyes ones to give away. (They’re black, of course we got those.)

    They’ve sent us four of them. Want to win one? Excellent. Here’s how that happens: you enter using the form below. Remember you can enter once a day. If we draw your name when the contest ends, you snag it! Good luck!

    Stuff You Need to Know: How Many Times Have I Told You Not to Use My Good Tools to Kill Zombies?

    Walking Dead Season 2 Blu-Ray Limited Edition

    We’re back after some time away because sometimes everybody needs a little time away. Now, the purpose of these posts is to keep you up to date on what’s happening in the world of pop culture. Just one post, as is warranted, to bring you up to speed. Because you have better things to do than read a bunch of re-printed/paraphrased press releases. Enjoy.

  • Walking Dead Season 2 is hitting home video on August 28th. I could have sworn I mentioned this somewhere, but I must have hallucinated it. It’s available on DVD, Blu-Ray, and the special limited edition Blu-Ray set that has a zombie head for a case. If you turn the screwdriver and the remaining eye lights up–total score.
  • Also in the pre-order department, look for Avengers to have some options for you. There’s a 2-disc DVD and 2-disc Blu-Ray, yes. But also a ten-disc limited edition set with all six movies enclosed. They call it “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One: Avengers Assembled.” Is Phase Two going to involve the Defenders? Anyway, you have pre-order links there and yes, for the record, there are single-disc versions available but…honestly? Why bother? No definitive release date yet. Also, no 3D home video version announced yet. Interesting.

So we try to make the process as painless as possible so you can be up to speed. Thus, we will do a drive-by commentary, so to speak. That’s the plan with catching up on trailers–we got a bit behind with the holidays attacking us like they did. So here we go.

    Win a Hasbro Toy Grab Bag!

    Han Solo: Star Wars Legacy Collection Marvel Universe: Green Goblin
    Scarlett: Desert Ambush Transformers 2: Sideswipe

    Here’s a random array of Hasbro Toys. They sent them why? Because they love you. And we figured we’d just give the whole shebang away to one lucky person. What you see is what you get–almost. The Han Solo: Star Wars Legacy Collection 3.75″ figure is not a “1st day” one as pictured. (Why is that important, anyway? Are the molds fresher?) Anyway, also in the mix is a Marvel Universe: Green Goblin 3.75″ figure, a G.I. Joe Scarlett 3.75″ figure and a Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Sideswipe figure.

    How do you win? Enter using the form below and enter once a day. If we draw your name when the contest ends, you snag all four toys. Good luck!

    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) – 27 Second Review

    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie poster

    Written by: Stuart Beattie, David Elliot, Paul Lovett, and Michael Gordon
    Directed by: Stephen Sommers
    Starring: Ray Park, Marlon Wayans, Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid, Rachel Nichols, Byung-Hun Lee, Saïd Taghmaoui, Joseph-Gordon Levitt, Christopher Eccleston, Sienna Miller, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Arnold Vosloo, Jonathan Pryce

    Review: Casting Ray Park as Snake Eyes earned them a lot of leeway. I was even willing to forgive the fact that they put lips on his mask. It’s the ninja equivalent of Bat-Nipples. But they countered that with a good deal of brilliant homage, as well as enough kicksplode to entertain me for the two hours needed. Even if they twisted a fond childhood memory a bit (Accelerator Suits…? The hell?), the action made it a fun movie. Not a great movie by any means, mind you, but a fun one.

    Time: 21 seconds

It also features a special Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow tattoo from the Arashikage ninja clan and other exciting bonus content.

    We’ve got three copies of the set here–and you can win one. It’s easy to do: just enter using the form below. Enter once a day. And if we draw your name when the contest ends, you win. And now you know.

    Stuff: The Things That Happened Before The Thing

    The Thing prequel

    An entire website’s worth of pop culture news in a single post. Because it’s silly to rewrite press releases into 500 word articles…wouldn’t you say?

  • I understand there’s something or other called the Super Bowl happening today…or…something? All I know is that Amazon has got the Super Bowl I-XL collector’s set for $54.99, which is 63% off the list price of $149.98. As always, it’s good for today only and while stocks last. Click here to buy yours.
  • The Thing is getting a prequel where we find out the story on the Norwegian camp that got wasted before we joined our heroes. Since Norwegian horror seems to be taking off, I would be behind this if they shot it like one of the Norwegian indie films we’ve seen recently, like Dead Snow or Cold Prey. I would trust Norway to do this right before I’d trust Hollywood. Source.
  • The BAFTA nominee full list is now available here. Speaking of awards: wow, Kung Fu Panda was named best feature at the Annie animation awards.
