“Star Wars” has some rabid fans, and sometimes those fans create some pretty cool things.
Take, for example, this ammo box inspired by R2-D2:
How cool is that? It was for sale, but it done sold. Bummer, cause it was $45 and I think I might have pulled the trigger on it.
And then there’s this sweet artwork by Benjamin Carre:
That’s one big Rancor. But I think it could legitimately take on an AT-ST.
My favorite book of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series is going to begin seeing the light of day as a television adaptation in the third season of “Game of Thrones,” and I’m ecstatic.
“Game of Thrones” was renewed for a third season today, though it’s no big surprise. The second season has seen more than a 50 percent increase in viewers over last season, which is more than enough to get fat-cat executives salivating for “more, more, more!” As viewers, that means some more solid storytelling and memorable characters.
I was counting down the minutes until tonight’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” especially after last week’s whet the appetite for the show’s second season. Last week was a ton of exposition, and this week wasn’t all too different. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, since tonight’s episode, “The Night Lands,” made some great progress with moving the story along rather than just catching us up on where the players are at this point in the game.
Bringing the lolz, Middle-earth style.
Streaming services has taken nearly 3 million subscribers away from television; and why that might not mean much
Between 2008 and 2011, 2.65 million Americans cut the cord to their television, satellite and telco subscriptions, and jumped into streaming services. No doubt people see streaming services as a cheaper, more customizable option compared to the tiered pricing subscription model television uses. I know my fiance and I did when we made the jump in 2010: We turned our $70 cable bill into a $16 streaming bill when we began using Netflix and Hulu Plus.
There have been some rumors running amok on the Internet suggesting Liam Neeson is going to be in “The Dark Knight Rises,” reprising his role as Ra’s Al Ghul. Turns out, those rumors are true, as confirmed by the “Wrath of the Titans” production notes.
Starring Jeff Daniels, “The Newsroom” is about the goings-on of a fictional television news channel.
The trailer premiered before last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” and it’s quit compelling. Daniels looks to be in top form.
“The Newsroom” premieres June 24.
“Game of Thrones” is one of the finest television shows to come along in some time. It’s first season sort of took everyone by storm: Unless someone was already acquainted with author George R.R. Martin’s work, no one knew what to expect from the fantasy airing on HBO. What people got was an epic tale that has been commonly referred to as “Sopranos” set in medieval times.
This looks fun.
