It is with great sorrow I must say that at the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin passed away today of pancreatic cancer as reported by People.  This one of a kind woman was loved by many and rose to stardom at a time when not only women, but people of color in general struggled to have a voice. Aretha Franklin would go on to become the Queen and icon of not only soul but an entire era of musicians that to this day look back at with pride and in awe of what she accomplished. It wasn’t just her music that people loved, with hit songs such as Respect that became a battle cry for the civil rights movement and women’s rights. movement.

Aretha Franklin will be missed my millions, may she rest in peace and the gaming gods bring her glory.

Movie Pass Limiting Options.

The-Meg-Eats-MoviePass-Header

Movie Pass, the awesome service that lets you go see a movie once a day for an insanely low price just got a bit less awesome. They are now limiting 2 movie choices a day. Screen Rant has more of the details, but I honestly am not sure how anyone thought this was sustainable as a business model. The idea that millions of people would be able to see a movie everyday for the insanely low price of $10 (rounding) a month is asinine. Tho I suspect that maybe the plan was to get a bunch of people to sign up, then raise the price in hopes most people would stay or that similar to a gym member ship most people simply wouldn’t go. Either way it will be interesting to see how this goes. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

As many of you may be aware Margot Kidder died back in May. While it was at first thought, or at least announced, that she died peacefully in her sleep, her family and Park County Coroner Richard Wood confirmed she died of “Self inflicted drug an alcohol overdose.”

Margot Kidder reportedly has spent her life suffering from mental illness including bipolar disorder. For more info feel free to check Screen Rant. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Flash Movie Set to Film in February

Going to be 100% honest,the lego flash picture has nothing to do with anything, I just liked it. Anyway reportedly the solo Flash film will start filming come February 2019. Anyone that saw Justice League (2017) will probably be expecting this to be a pretty comedic role, much like I am. So for flash fans, next year shall be interesting, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Halloween and William Shatner

No I am not here to tell you something pretty much every horror fan already knows and explain about The Halloween mask and the Shatner mask. The producer of Halloween would actually like to work with William Shatner and some how get the Iconic Star Trek captain that has essentially lent ( unwillingly admittedly) to the Halloween universe. Now I am not a huge fan of Halloween tho I do enjoy it, but I would love to see this happen. Check out more here and let me know what you think. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Venom trailer 3

Holy shit, what a turnaround from that first generic trailer. Seriously, I’m really digging where the direction seems to be going. The effects look way better and we get so much more Venom in all his badassery. I do have an issue though: the villain seems generic as hell but with Venom done right, I think it will pull it off. May the gaming gods bring me off.

SDCC 2018- Torsten’s Summary

sdcc 2018

SDCC 2018 has been surprisingly epic  and as a nerd and blogger I’m truly thankful. At the end of this post I’m leaving all the links to the posts I’ve done regarding trailers from this year’s SDCC. I’m sure I missed stuff and I know there’s plenty to cover so feel free to leave suggestions in the comments and I’ll be happy to look into it. For right now I’d like to take this time and pretty much just talk about stuff that really popped out to me and bring up stuff I wish we got.

Normally, I’d say let’s start with the positives but this time I want to start with the worst thing I’m pretty sure most of us came out of this year’s SDCC, a trailer the internet, fans, and haters alike have banned together to trash and that’s the Titans live action trailer. Fuck Batman? No, fuck you trailer, enough said.

I have to say my favorite thing to come out of SDCC this year was the Glass trailer. I’m genuinely pumped for that movie and I hope Shyamalan makes a comeback. My close second favorite trailer was for Aquaman and thankfully I don’t think I’ll be disappointed come December.

I was surprised by quite a bit by a lot this year. Shazam looks funny as hell and I’m not even a huge fan of the character so that says something. The same can also be said of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, it’s hard to not get goosebumps during the trailer. Alita: Battle Angel I feel could be the surprise gem of the bunch while Overlord’s trailer was the hardest hitting surprise for me.

With the exception of Overlord trailer, I’m a little disappointed at the lack of new horror content. I was hoping for a new Halloween 2018 trailer or a new trailer for the Nun. Predator 4 is shaping up to look sweet and though I’m sure it will dominate next year’s Con, I wish we got a little bit more of IT: Chapter 2.

The lack of Disney/ Marvel presence was sorely missed. Seriously, besides a trailer for Iron Fist season 2 and the return of Clone Wars, that  was all they brought to the table. No Avengers 4 tease, no Captain Marvell tease, no Daredevil season 3 peek, no Star Wars Episode 9 news. Hell, even the Fox part of Marvel was quiet; I was expecting a Xmen: Dark Phoenix trailer.

In the end, it was a great year. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
