The opening few minutes to the upcoming Cloverfield
The biggest surprise of the latest console wars has been the addition of Nintendo into the realm of competitors. The Wii has outstanding sales and demand which is something Nintendo has not seen in almost a decade.
With the PS3 struggling and many game makers having difficult dealing with or affording to developing games for SONY the guys at Nintendo decided it was time for them to start opening up their system to 3rd party and developing game manufacturers.
It's not hard to created a budget between $5-15 million for making a game for the PS3. Nintendo sells the financial aspect of the business to developers in that for one game on the PS3 they can work 5-6 titles from Nintendo.
The XBox, plagued with hardware problems, and the Wii both have outsold the PS3 by millions of units in the U.S. The two biggest problems with the PS3 have been its price, at around $600, and its lack of original games. [ ...more ]

Marilyn Manson - Heart-Shaped Glasses (When The Heart Guides The Hand)
This began as a thank you from Tim to Rancid fans, to be released one track at a time on the Internet to tide fans over until the next Rancid full-length. But when KROQ in LA began heavily playing the explosive track, "Into Action", plans changed. So here's Armstrong's first solo release, backed by some of the strongest radio support since the days of "Time Bomb" and "Ruby Soho". With a killer old-school two-tone groove, helped along by Hellcat label mates The Aggrolites, "A Poet's Life" is loose, punky, infectious, and shamelessly danceable. Bonus DVD features videos of every song and a cool featurette on the making of the album and videos.

Reno 911! - Miami (Unrated Edition) pops up on DVD today in case you missed it in the theaters.
Our review is short and simple. If you like the series then you'll dig this movie. It's like watching a long episode with the nudity not blurred out.
Check out some video clips of the movie where the bumbling officers take a trip to Miami where they trip into a situation where all the cops in the area are under quarantine. That leaves Reno's finest to help out the city.
Welcome to Miami

Also, the Batpod pictures are up. It's the new motorcycle for the Dark Knight that looks pretty mean. It sits on two huge wheels with the motor casing built inside them. There are no bars to steer with. Batman uses his weight, somehow, to shift it around and guide it. [ ...more ]

Lost - Synchronised events around Plane Crash
Sure to be the next big one after the Halo sequel is the Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) sequel which takes the player back to Liberty City. It looks like the boys at XBox got themselves a leg up in that venture with the makers of GTA IV when they will market exclusive content to the XBox. [ ...more ]

Customizing action figures for us growing up usually involved setting a G.I Joe on fire or drawing on him with a Sharpie.
One guy in particular, Ray Carro Roel, takes the art of customized action figures to an artistic level with this "Zombie Superman."
Geeks of Doom sits down with Ray to discuss toys, painting, and zombies!

Indiana Jones is losing it's eldest member.
Sean Connery announced he's 'out' of the series and wants to spend more time studying for Celebrity Jeopardy. Connery is currently retired and declined on the movie role as Indy's dad.
Loosely translated, Lucas couldn't come up with enough "$" to make his retirement sound boring. Pity! But, we don't really blame him. Hell of an actor. Let him do what he wants. The good news is that Harrison Ford is now old enough to play the part of old geezer in the film.
The incident, which immediately recalled the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II in 1981, occurred at the beginning of the Pope's weekly general audience in St Peter's Square in the Vatican. Pope Benedict did not seem to notice the man and continued his audience as usual.
A Vatican official said the man, who was wearing a pink t-shirt, black shorts, a cap and sunglasses, managed to reach the back of the Pope's open-topped vehicle before the pontiff's team of eight guards wrestled him to the ground. He is being questioned by Vatican police.
Disney has made a deal to purchase "All About Adam," a story by Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, which follows the biblical Adam as he trails Eve to modern-day Gotham after they have a lover's quarrel. Adam discovers Satan was behind the breakup.

Spaceballs-When Will Then be Now?
iPhone ad -- never been an iPod. Coming June 29th
The good part of this is that they can go out on a high note. Ratings have dropped but the show is still popular. If they leave next season, which won't start till 2008, then they have a chance for fans who have left the show to get caught up and allow for a huge promo push to make their last season their best and most popular. The problem with a lot of Sci-fi based shows is that after they get popular they seem to hang on too long and turn to crap. You know the ones. We're proud of the series and what it has done and we look forward to the DVD sets and possible spin off in the future. [ ... more ]
Update: Sci Fi Channel has confirmed the end of the series as of today so it's official.
To help celebrate the show, here's some of Tricia Helfer's Playboy spread.
Andy and Larry Wachowski, the brothers who are making their first directorial effort since The Matrix trilogy, are bringing the "Speed Racer" cartoon to the big screen. A lot of Americans got their intro into Japanese animation with the "Speed Racer" series but will have to wait another year for the movie. Slated to appear in the film are Christina Ricci (Trixie), Emile Hirsch (Speed), John Goodman (Pops Racer), Susan Sarandon (Mom Racer), and "LOST's" Matthew Fox (Racer X).

Collect 1,000 Schrute Bucks and you'll get 5 minutes extra on lunch. Cash value is 1/1000 cent.
If the Schrute Bucks are not your thing then head for the collectible "Stanley Nickel." The going rate is around 5,000 Stanley Nickels to 1 Schrute Buck or the same ratio as leprechauns to unicorns.
Well, lucky for us we found the answer.
Sneak Peek at Michael Moore's "SiCKO"
Unlike the new Die Hard sequel which is aiming for a teenie-bopper audience with a PG-13 rating, Stallone looks to be keeping to what a good action film should be. An R-rating. Rambo is an angry killing machine and he doesn't look like old age has slowed him down too much.
While we collectively scratch our heads and wonder why, it must be pointed out that this has not been 100% confirmed. So, let's all hold hands and pray...."No, 20th Century Fox. Don't be wimps and cut out a trademarked line from an action hero we all love."
Taser Makes Him Scream Like A Girl

The Transformers are coming to the big screen this summer and the geek in us is freakin' out about the new movie. We can't wait to see if this movie lives up to our expectations. With Michael Bay behind the wheel it's safe to say it's gonna be hit or miss. Will it look like a 2 hour commercial or 'balls-to-the-wall' action flick?
While we'll have to wait 'till July to find out the boys at Yahoo! Movies have released some new pics and short videos to help wet our appetite. We must say we were initially disappointed in Megatron and Starscream. Both look like they are in need for a serious paint job. We have a bad feeling that Starscream won't carry over to the big screen with his cartoon voice, either. That's a shame...
