Suprising Watson Cast in Elementary

Some of you may remember how I mentioned that CBS was getting into trouble with Stephen Moffat's production company, because of their modern Sherlock Holmes show, Elementary, having a bunch of simularities to the BBC's Sherlock.

Details in full here.

Well in the time following the complaints, CBS have been attempting to distance their version from the Moffat version, and one of the major ways is who they've got to play Watson, namely, the awesome...

Order of the Stick Donation Drive Breaks $1 Million

Yeah, so the creator of Order of the Stick started a Kickstarter fundraising drive to raise the money he needed to reprint the collected editions of the webcomic, and a few weeks ago it broke records for donation drives such as this by breaking £25,000.

Well, it seems that people haven't stopped donating money, and as of the time of this post they'd gotten up to $1,010,766, when the initial goal they were going for was $57,750.

Yikes, I know that the webcomic was popular, but not THAT popular!

Lauren Faust's Supergirl Up

There has been kind of a lot of fail regarding DC's treatment of female characters this week, what with the things with Catwoman being tortured via beating while in a "sexy" pose and the decision over in Blue Beetle to have Jaime belt Brenda in the face "for her own good" and all.

So here's something that should hopefully be good.

I'm far more amused by this than I should be.

Doomsday Book Trailer

A trailer for the cool looking Korean anthology movie, which is split between a story about an asteroid about to hit the Earth and another about a robot in a temple that becomes self-aware. Could be cool. :)

Skyrim : 2012

Let Me In - Review and Comparison

Mwhahaha, dance puppets, dance!
It is an odd time to be a fan of the horror genre at present. After the glut of self-referential horror movies in the 1990s, we were subjected to the torture-horror movies of the 2000s that followed the success of the 'Saw' and 'Hostel' franchises, before finally the re-emergence of traditional horror movie monsters in the form of the multimedia zombie blitz that occurred after Zack Snyder's 'Dawn of the Dead' remake and British horror comedy 'Shaun of the Dead'.

And then came 'Twilight', which, for better or worse, was something of a game changer in terms of horror fiction. Besides the books themselves being poorly written dreck and the movies being absolutely hilarious for entirely the wrong reasons, the fact remains that just one franchise managed to seemingly change an entire audience's perception of an entire sub-genre. No longer were vampires aristocratic noblemen, snarky English punks in black leather jackets or irritating guys with floppy hair from around New Orleans. They were no longer seen as being threatening, they had effectively been defanged, to use a pun. Though really, when compared to the sociopathic manipulations of Bella Swan even the likes of Pinhead has trouble matching that manipulative creepiness.
