I’m sure you all can believe it, but there are already tons of Star Wars: The Force Awakens fan art that exist on the internet. Without knowing much about the movie still—besides that it will be super awesome, of course— fans have already shown their enthusiasm in so many ways. Isn’t it cool we live in the digital world where we can see, watch and listen to other people in fandom freak out over a movie that isn’t even out yet?
In this episode, Mike Myler joins us to talk about his latest project, Hypercorps 2099 — a cyberpunk world full of superheroes, monsters and badass historical figures. We also discuss how games can change lives and all the Star Wars movie news! Even though it made Mike cry a little and not in the good way.
This is a jam packed episode as the Lady Geeks fangirl over the new Star Wars Episode VII teaser trailer, the Jurassic World teaser trailer, and the official cast announcement for the Suicide Squad movie. SPQ has lots of Late Movie Reviews and Fanfic Theatre is back!
In a galaxy far, far away, our Lady Geeks fantasize about the greatest fish tacos that will unite the light and dark side of the Force and will bring peace to the entire galaxy. Because they are that damn good. Also — Thor in Disneyland, finally?!
Last night, Gizzy B and I watched Star Trek Into Darkness and we really enjoyed it! We won’t say much for now because we don’t want to spoil it for everyone out there, but feel free to let us know what you thought of the movie if you’ve seen it!
What were your favorite parts? Personally, I am not the biggest Benedict Cumberbatch fan (don’t worry, everyone else on Defective Geeks are inlove with him . . . just not me! Ha!) but what did you guys think of him in the movie? Who was your favorite character? How did this one compare to the first movie?
Zoey Zaldana rocked Uhura so hard, I thought! And the Kirk and Spock moments? Priceless.
If you happened to hear a distant, piercing shriek sometime on Tuesday morning, sorry, that was probably me. Because that was when it became official: Karl Urban is co-starring with Michael Ealy in the pilot for a scifi buddy cop series. I swear to god, I am not making any of this up.
“The drama, which is now going by the title Human, is described as an action-packed buddy-cop show set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved humanlike androids. Urban will take on the leading role of John Kennex, a respected police officer who has shut down emotionally after a tragic mission that claimed the lives of nine of his fellow elite officers and left him critically injured.” (1)
Michael Ealy was cast back in February as the android Dorian, “who understands humanity more than his human partner.” (2)
In summary: Karl Urban is a damaged cop with a Tragic Past, Michael Ealy is a beautiful android with Feelings. This pretty much sums up my thoughts on the matter.
The Lady Geeks discuss unemployment and jobs while we all worry about leaving children around Fortune Cookie. They also discuss the semi-old news of J.J. Abrams directing ‘Star Wars’ while the Space Pirate Queen gets overly excited by ‘The Vampire Diaries’ spin-off show.
Gizzle and I made it out to the LA Film Festival on June 20th at Downtown LA for the Edgar Wright Saves the World panel, co-hosted by J.J. Abrams. The discussion involved Abrams asking Edgar Wright (director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the upcoming Scott Pilgrim Saves the World movie) questions as they showed different clips that encompassed Wright’s entire career. We even caught a glimpse of one of his earliest indie film that involved mostly his friends running around with guns at a park.
Wright talks about the television series, Spaced, his first project involving Simon Pegg; music videos he directed in between his transition from TV to movie; to his hit movie Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz; and then the night ended with a completed 9-minute clip from the Scott Pilgrim movie.
It was really neat to see these two well-known directors talk to each other and to the audience and we learned more about Wright’s directing/film career. It was a great opportunity for fans of his work to get to know the man behind the camera, as they say.
