Looks Like We May Be Getting A Dead Island Movie
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 4th of August 2014 - 01:00 PM ]
Near the end of last week Deep Silver and Occupant Entertainment announced that a Dead Island film adaptation is in the works Time to hear the resounding cheers and jeers for the announcement of a Dead Island film. Yes, it looks like we may be getting a film adaptation of Deep Silver's largest zombie themed game. The first Dead Island has sold over 8 million copies of the game to date so it seems like it would be a perfect time to rake in more dough on the franchise. Zombies are still all the rage so it makes sense. Read More...

April Fools: So It Begins With The Killzone Movie: A Helghastly Adventure
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 31st of March 2014 - 01:00 PM ]
Over the weekend 'The Killzone Movie: A Helghastly Adventure' was 'announced' from Guerrilla Games. So April Fools Begins… I guess we are letting the 'fun' of April Fools begins early with The Killzone Movie: A Helghastly Adventure. Just in case you missed this, over the weekend this 'announcement' was placed on Killzone website for all to see. I personally think someone pulled the trigger too soon on posting this up on their blog but here you have it; the first of the April Fools' jokes that you all know I love so much. If this is not an early April Fools joke then I am a monkey's uncle. Read More...

Review: Wreck-It Ralph
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 30th of October 2012 - 06:41 PM ]
For the last few months we've all been bombarded with ads and trailers for Disney's upcoming Wreck-It Ralph. A film that looks like it will do to video games what Toy Story did to toys. But how well is the question? Well sit back and enjoy our review of Wreck-It Ralph. The Story: 'Wreck-It' Ralph is the villain of a 'retro' game in an arcade who is pretty much crapped on for being the villain. He hates it. Who wouldn't? Read More...

You've Got To Be Kidding Me. New Mortal Kombat Film In The Works
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 3rd of October 2011 - 11:48 AM ]
Please gods don't let there be another video game film craze coming again. Earlier this week we found out Dead Island has been optioned for a featured film. Now, Mortal Kombat is getting the same treatment. Yes, another Mortal Kombat film is in the works. Although it has potential to be really good but only if things work out as alluded to. Apparently things went way better for the Web Series that was directed by Kevin Tancharoen than Warner Bros. expected. Read More...

Dead Island The Movie... Do We Need It?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 27th of September 2011 - 02:44 PM ]
Do we need yet another zombie film? Or even better, another zombie film based on a video game? I mean are the Resident Evil films not enough for us? If you answered along the lines of "Yes, give me another zombie film based on a video game." then I have some good news for you. Lionsgate has just announced that they have optioned the film rights to Dead Island the movie. Yea… I think… I am being a little hasty here though. It looks like the reason has been optioned is all based around the concept of the first trailer we were given back in February of this year. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 8 - Same Old Story
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 1st of June 2011 - 06:28 PM ]
What a twist! Who knew that Quan Chi was the master mind behind the whole Sub Zero/Scorpion plot? My mind is blown! Completely didn't expect this "reimagining" to go there. Madness! Wait… What…? That is the basic canon of the Mortal Kombat universe? It wasn't something amazingly awesome thought up by the people who wrote something amazing to get the WB behind this little web series? Damn… I was really hoping for something here. Now that my sarcasm has been given the chance to be out in the open for the day, let's move on. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 7 - Scorpion The Family Man
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 25th of May 2011 - 04:55 PM ]
That didn't last long. The awesome reimagining of the Mortal Kombat franchise that was shown in episode 6 seems to be thrown to the side as we are back on the path of the stories we already know. Oh, and just like the Kitana/Mileena story, this one is set up the same way only with franchise favorites Scorpion and Sub Zero. That includes the "To Be Continued" at the end of the episode. I will give the episode a bit of credit as it does expand on the whole rivalry story between the two characters. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 6 - Raiden's Gone Crazy
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 19th of May 2011 - 05:59 PM ]
Finally we get something that was originally pitched way back when. It only took six episodes before we got another gritty take on the Mortal Kombat universe. While it was nothing as insane as how Baraka or Scorpion were presented, it does ask the question of "What would happen if a god fell in the modern age?" It also answers it pretty accurately too boot. This week's episode features Raiden who seems to have fallen out of power and into the grounds of a mental institution. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 5 - Sibling Rivalry...Kind Of
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 11th of May 2011 - 05:02 PM ]
The latest episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy has hit the web and it continues down the path of just retelling the story from the game. I have given up hope that they would begin to go back to the "reality based" version. So I am going to try and approach this from a different angle as my original excitement was for something that seems will never be. Anyway, this episode continues the animatic and story of Kitana and Mileena that was approached in last week's episode. It has the girls vying for their "father's" approval by fighting each other and following out assassination plots. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 4 - Let's Go To Outworld
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 9th of May 2011 - 11:48 AM ]
Um…I really don't know what to say this time. Other than it looks like the previously mentioned boat has now brought that jumper to the ramp before the shark. This new episode has completely deviated from the original pitch from last year. It reeks of either studio demands or that the production team stopped caring about bring what was originally hyped. I knew Baraka was going to be grossly different than the "real world" rendition, but they went all fantasy on it. Outside of fully deviating from the original gritty real world feel, most of this week's episode is also done in an animatic format. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 3 - You Got Caged!
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 28th of April 2011 - 12:36 PM ]
Now here is a gross deviation from everything that was going on with Mortal Kombat: Legacy. First Johnny Cage isn't killed outright and he is actually failing as the actor he claims to be. A show called "You Got Caged." Really? All I could think about was the first line of from one of my favorite web shows. It's silly yet fun. I would love to know why the dirty, realistic gritty version of MK:L seems to have been abandoned though. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 2 - Kano's Eye
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 20th of April 2011 - 02:33 PM ]
Ah foreshadowing is a fun mistress. Remember in the first episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy when they showed the laser eye? The normal eyed Kano held it up and asked about it. Of course you do. Well let's just say that it made its way into this episode in a nice gory way. Other things to look forward to in the below continuation of the web series: Explosions. A way cooler fight between Jax and Kano. Back alley surgery…with robots. Read More...

Here Is The First Episode Of Mortal Kombat: Legacy
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 12th of April 2011 - 02:36 PM ]
The wait is finally over. The first episode of the Mortal Kombat web series is finally out for all of us fans and webiphiles to enjoy. The video is below, so I'll put the rest of my words after that. I know you're just going to jump down and press play anyways. That small clip from before makes so much more sense. The creep factor from the very first "viral video" is a bit lost here, but then again this is just the lead up. I am sure that as it continues it will get darker and creepier, but not so much right now. Read More...

Let's Get Teased! Mortal Kombat: Legacy
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 8th of April 2011 - 06:43 PM ]
The time is almost here. The time for that awesome live action Mortal Kombat web show to hit the net. Obviously that also means that it is time to tease it a little bit before. Here is said tease. Ok, so nothing as awesome as the first short, but I am sure it will fit in well somehow. I mean with the huge splash that the first video made it would be ludicrous to try to slop out some crap afterwards. At least it is a look at Kano and Jax, although we got a basic look already of Jax. Read More...

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 25th of January 2011 - 06:33 PM ]
Remember that viral video for Mortal Kombat: Rebirth that we brought you back in June of 2010? Sure you do. I am also sure that you have already heard the rumors and speculation that it was actually going to become a ten part web series with some of the cast coming back. If not, do some Google searches and I am sure you will find what I am talking about. That or just keep reading here as it has now been officially announced from Warner Premiere that the project is actually a go. With the response the "viral" video got it is really no surprise that something is moving forward with it. Read More...
