Movie Hype: Comic-Con Thanksgiving? Everything Old Is New & Anime Movie Making Movie

 

Most of the internet is going, "What the Hell?," with an in-real-life Comic-Con. Comic-Con responded with a, "Eh, it might not even happen." The main reasoning is that it's already the busiest travel weekend in the USA, surprisingly more then even Christmas?
 
 I've recently though about devoting time to a weekly section that covers reboots, sequels or anything from our past becoming a show or movie. But then, I really could cover anything else.
 

 
It sounds utterly strange to have a sequel when one of the faces that came off is dead in the movie...Yeah, that's all it's strange, but Adam Wingard, director of the upcoming Godzilla Vs Kong might be have enough to pull to make a sequel. We're hopping for it being called Body/Off.
 

 
It's really great to hear the guys that gave us the sci-fi horror The Endless are gonna be making Moon Knight, they seem perfect from the track record of the films they've made and written.  
Kevin Tong

 

 
Another great choice of someone to run a tv show. Sadly, on a service hardly anyone watches. We loved the work of  Kim Jee-Woon on I Saw the Devil a petty revenge thriller that so perfectly shows off the genre of Korea revenge films.

-‘John Wick’ Writer Derek Kolstad Adapting ‘Hellsing’, the Japanese Manga That Reimagines the Dracula Story

Dang, I don't know how the Hell the could pull off Hellsing. Especially as a movie for Amazon? Would it be live-action? Oh, I hope not. 

-PG: Psycho Goreman’: Get a “Hunky Boy Reel Meal Deal” at Ontario’s Lester D’s Reel Diner! [Retro Commercial]
 
We loved Psycho Goreman, if you haven't seen it, then frig you. It's online and on Blu-ray. This is pure nostalgia for anyone who grew up in the 90's and watched Power Rangers and horror movies. But there's so many other nods. It was a treat beyond treats.


And, lastly, check out the trailer for Pompo: The CinĂ©phile, which  goes over the production of making a movie. It's out in Japan in June. Hopefully, we get a dubbed or subbed version soon after.

 

What We Found On The Net: Alien Easter Eggs, PEPSI x PEEPS & Razer's Face Mask Was Just A Concept?

 

Don't forget you can still get Alien Easter Eggs from Walmart. Sadly, you can only get them online and they won't arrive until April 8th at the earliest.



Even hard to find is the PEPSI x PEEPS Marshmallow Cola. You can't get it in any store. You have to win it online. Learn more here.

The Project Hazel face mask that can light up and looks like you're in a dystopian future was just a concept design. We're a bit angry about Razer not making it clear that it was essentially an idea. It seemed very much like a project that was being made. Still no word when it will come out and what price.
 
They way Razer treats people interested in its products though, is pretty awful. I don't recommenced pre-ordering, whenever that is, but looking for a company making a similar mask or buying a knock-off that's as effective.

LA Mag Did A Very Bad Map Of What's Closed Downtown

 


No, not Unidentified luggage shop!
 
We keep up to date with the other LA media online and sometimes you can tell when things were rushed or someone didn't try very hard. That's the case for LA Magazines "The Vanishing", duh-duh-DUH! 
 
Check it out here 
 
The worst part is that the article says some places are closed permanently, but doesn't indicate which ones? Why even write...do that if you don't have that info. So, some of the places might re-open? Which ones? Put an asterisk near them.
 
In any case, it's depressing to see what's closed and "possibly" gone forever.
 
R.I.P.  A Shop Called Quest, you were a cool comic book shop downtown in the worst parking lot ever. Hopefully, your website tells people your closed one day.

A program did the map for the writer, something called Cartifact. The horrible alphabetical numbering system makes a mess of finding similar businesses in the same areas. Like #1 and #31 of food should have been #1 and #2; it's annoying to find things.

Game Hype: Welcome To The Neo Retro Future

 


Narita Boy, after a Kickstarter and a long wait, comes out at the end of this month. On March 30th  you finally can get lost in an 80's dimension making fun of classic tropes from the era. It'll be out on Steam, PS4, Xbox ONE, Nintendo Switch. It's fun genre would be called neo-retro, remixing past games based on what people thought the future would be.
 

Another neo-retro game coming out is based on a movie in the same genre, Turbo Kid. We loved the movie when it premiered in LA and find it funny that 6 years after it came out someone decided to make a game about it. Not a lot of details other then it's in production.




Coming out in a few days is It Takes Two, which has had some good reviews, but not perfect. Looks like a fun game to play, while still stuck inside.
 
Coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, March 26, 2021

 
 

Hopefully, one day will get this cute looking game about a dragon caring for a little princess. via Destructoid.
 


Limited Run is selling No More Heroes 1 & 2 for Switch with special editions.
 



Strange idea of anything goes controller patented by Sony.  


Here's some more info on the upcoming Inkulinati.
I never heard of this game, but it's great to finally see some game play of Crow 64 as you delve into the problems of it being made. All the way back in the 64 era, nostalgic.
 
 

Bless you Alex and your dumb ideas you go full-in on.
