Bumblebee (2018) Trailer

Bumblebee Teaser Poster

Every Journey Has a Beginning I’d heard rumblings but if I’m being honest I either A) didn’t think it would really happen or B) forgot about it. The first trailer for Bumblebee (2018) just dropped and it shows the loveable Bee in all his Generation 1 Volkswagen Beetle glory. Bumblebee is directed by Travis Knight and written by Christina Hodson. It is centered around the titular character and a prequel to the events of the Transformers film series. It will star Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg … Continue reading

Behind the 8-Ball – Time To Catch Up

Behind the 8-Ball

I’ve been a really bad blogger lately. There’s a variety of reasons for this, but suffice to say I’ve not been making writing here a priority the way I’d like to. It’s time to get caught up. Here’s a look at what I’ll be working on over the (hopefully) near future. Movie Reviews I like to review every non-horror movie I see in the theaters here on the site (horror reviews go over on ScareTissue.com). … Continue reading

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Transformer - Age Of Extinction

Yes… I’m posting a review of a movie that was released nearly a year ago. When I first started reviewing flicks here on the blog I had more time, less kids and generally less going on in my life. These days, the only stuff I review is stuff I see in the theater that’s NOT a horror flick. Horror reviews are reserved for ScareTissue.com (head on over if you’re a horror buff). I don’t see … Continue reading

The End Of The Line – G.I. Joe Pursuit Of Cobra

G.I. Joe Action Figures

I’ve been a huge fan of G.I. Joe for about as long as I can remember.  I collected the toys when I was growing up, watched the cartoon religiously and read the comic books.  When it came time to see G.I. Joe in the theater I was one of the few who actually enjoyed it on the big screen. These days with the boys I don’t do a whole lot of toy collecting.  The vast … Continue reading

A Rewatch In 3D

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (2011)

I recently reviewed the Michael Bay flick Transformers: Dark of the Moon after seeing it on opening night.  In that review I stated that I’d seen the flick in 2D and didn’t really see the value in 3D (or words to that effect).  A good friend of mine Stan commented on the blog and said that I should definitely see the flick in 3D… so that’s what I did. I loved the flick the first … Continue reading

Dark Of The Moon – The Final Transformers?

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (2011)

The newest (and perhaps last) entry into the Michael Bay version of the Transformers franchise came out last night – Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.  This review WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS.  If you don’t want to know the story come back after you’ve watched the flick. Before we get started I want to remind readers that I’m a big Transformers geek so this may be a bit biased.  If you want to get a historical perspective … Continue reading

A Bit Of My Geek Collection

80's Toys

In a previous post I talked about how I’d recently gone through some boxes in the basement and pulled out some old toys, specifically my Devastator from back in the day.  That lead to a discussion on one of my favorite podcast’s Facebook page about our collections, etc.  I took this quick video to show a couple of my items and thought I’d share it here as well. It focuses on figures from the first … Continue reading

100 Facts About Me – Or At Least 50

Twitter Logo

There’s recently been a hash tag topic on Twitter called #100FactsAboutMe.  The idea is to tweet 100 facts about yourself (I suppose).  One afternoon I decided that this would be a great idea cause let’s face it… people want to know all about Chewie.  So… without further build up here’s my list: I’m part of the @clevelanddotcom Twitter Twenty! #CLE20 I live in Cleveland but I’m a Steeler fan. In my defense, I grew up … Continue reading

Bringing Back An Old Friend: Devastator

G1 Devastator

As you know if you read more than a post or two here, I’m a geek.  I’m a child stuck in a (fat) man’s body that simply refuses to grow up.  As I’m the father of two and (more importantly in this case) husband to one I have but one room left in the house that I can call mine…the basement.  As the kids get bigger (and require more room to run and store THEIR … Continue reading

Another Childhood Favorite – ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra’

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

Before I start this review I wanted to give you my Joe credentials.  While I’m not old enough to have had the 12 inch figures I was fanatical when it came to the Hasbro figures and the original Marvel comic books.  I watched the cartoons religiously and remember like it was yesterday when I saw the animated movie for the first time – Cobra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!!!  With that out of the way, on to the review. This … Continue reading
