Extreme Ghostbusters - Darkness at Noon Part 1

Continuing the Halloween Theme, here's the first part of the series opener of the Ghostbusters sequel, Extreme Ghostbusters. Based ten years after the original cartoon, it follows a group of college students teaming up with Egon, Janine and Slimer to combat a new wave of ghosts terrorising NYC.

Mostly a really good show, though it got a little bad towards the end though. Also, is it me, or does the fact that it's the girl who gets the trap and has a tiny gun compared to the guns huge guns going into weird Freudian places?

Happy Halloween!

To start off the posts today, here's Nostalgia Chick's review of the 1980s adaption of the Worst Witch books!

In the books the main character actually continues to suck at her chosen career and only graduates due to hard work, not so much in the movie though.

Tintin Title Sequence

This fancreated title sequence references each fo the adventures had by the tufty-headed boy reporter in one neat montage, and the creators were even given jobs by Steven Spielberg, director of the new movie, because of it. Good for them I say.

Tomb Raider is 15 Years Old This Month!

This month marks the fifteenth anniversary of the Tomb Raider franchise, something that I feel should be marked somewhat.

Lara Croft is very much a character of opposites. On the one hand she was held up as an example of a strong female character that was able to reach a level of fame that few others did in the Nineties, while on the others complained that her sexualised appearance demeaned women and that the character was getting far more publicity that a mass murdering thief really should.

Either way, the impact that Lara had on popular culture is undeniable, appearing in everything from the original games to comics to (albeit bad) movies to energy drink adverts.

To me, she's as an important part of the 1990s, taking a place in the defintion of the decade along with Trainspotting, the Spice Girls, and Pulp.

Sure, the games got kind of ropey for a while, but they picked up again in quality and look to continue to do so into the future.

Anyways, So here's to you Miss Croft! Happy Fifteen Years!

神山健治監督最新作『009 RE:CYBORG』製作発表PV

From the creators of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, the best part of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, comes Cyborg 009, a movie about nine cyborgs that band together to save the world. Could be cool.

Red vs. Blue Season 9 - episode 14

VS (Versus) Trailer

Here is the trailer to Vs, a movie in which superheroes are out to try and stop a Jigsaw-ish supervillain instead of the audience just watching him murder folk for 80 minutes. Could be cool. :)

Beware the Batman news and info. on Lauren Faust's New Show

Though Batman: The Brave and The Bold is drawing to a close this year on Cartoon Network, Batfans won't be without an animated incarnation of the Caped Crusader for long. The CG animated Beware the Batman is coming in 2013, as revealed by Warner Bros. Animation executive vice president for creative affairs Sam Register this past weekend at the MIP Junior conference in Cannes, France. This version of Batman is pictured facing villains like Professor Pyg and Mister Toad with the help of a tough-looking Alfred and new partner Katana (who is apparently not necessarily a full-fledged Robin replacement). Glen Murakami (Ben 10, Teen Titans) has been named as the show's executive-producer. Like Green Lantern: The Animated Series set to debut in early 2012, Beware the Batman seems to adapt Bruce Timm's signature style in CG.

Along with Beware The Batman, Cartoon Network viewers can expect to see an assortment of other DC Comics content soon including Batman claymation shorts from Aardman Animation (Wallace and Gromit), Plastic Man shorts, Doom Patrol shorts, and Super Best Friends Forever, a series of Batgirl/Supergirl/Wonder Woman shorts by the creator of The Hub's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series. Register also briefly mentioned that Warner Bros. was working on a project with Conan O'Brien's production company, which could mean more Flaming C.
