Jeremy R! Hudson
Profile: Hailing from parts unknown (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.. it's in Canada!) jeremy r! hudson is a broadcaster, writer, artist and self styled new media renaissance man. Once described as the second last hope of the human race. Pop-culture, comic books, science fiction, video games and your sister are just a few of his many interests. When not trying to be a real life Buckaroo Banzai (wait, Buckaroo Banzai wasn't real?!?) he helps raise the next generation of nerds with his lovely and far too forgiving wife. He can be stalked via twitter, facebook and following him home at night.
The New 52 is dead. Long live the New 52 (sorta)!
Earlier today, DC Comics announced that following this spring’s Convergence event their entire line-up will be overhauled and a bold new direction for the comic company will begin, one focused on diversity, accessibility, and every other buzzword comic book companies use to describe major shake-ups such as this.
Still, when you look into the details it seems that DC might have some method to this madness. Fresh talent working with long time veterans. Bestselling fan-favorite series will be joined by a very interesting (and surprising) list of new titles. (more…)
Hey, did you know they are rebooting the Fantastic Four? The guys watch the trailer and give a honest to goodness mature review. Not really, but truth be told, Jason seems truly afraid and curious to see if the film’s seemingly antiseptic view of the FF mythos will start a trend.
Hey, did you know there is also some other reboot and non-reboot news this week? (more…)
Now that 2015 has fully rung itself in, let’s make with something new in the way of an all new Loot Crate! If you haven’t already heard, subscription box services are quickly becoming a popular ‘thing‘ and Loot Crate is arguably one of the more popular ones available. Once a month, and for less than $20 USD including shipping, the guys and gals at Loot Crate fill up a little black box with geeky nerdy little things just for you! Pretty sweet of them if you ask me. Plus, they promise that each box will be of at least $40 USD in value!
Now, before you grumble about how they clearly sent this to me for free, (and I will obviously say nice fluffy, buttery things about them for doing that) they didn’t. I am paying for this service, so my twenty bucks (well… more like $30 since I am a Canadian, but anyway,) my cash is on the line just like yours. Did January’s Loot Crate satiate my nerdy cravings? Will I find what my geeky heart desires? Let’s open the thing up and see… (more…)

Here are the other things! (more…)
After decades of development, we’re finally seeing the next chapter in George Miller‘s Mad Max saga. Months after the reveal of the teaser trailer at this years San Diego Comic-Con comes the first full two and a half face melting minutes of Mad Max: Fury Road in the form of a full theatrical trailer. In Millers own words, the movie is a “a western on wheels” and a “105 minute car chase” and this trailer solidifies that (ok, maybe I don’t see the ‘western’ aspect just yet but I am sure it’s in there. Somewhere.) It’s bombastic, sweeping, epic. It’s everything that Miller gave us in The Road Warrior (or Mad Max 2 depending on where you live,) doubled, doused in gasoline, set on fire and pushed off a cliff while some dude dressed like he failed his GWAR audition cackles maniacally.
It’s safe to say that this is a highly anticipated movie (personally I’ve been waiting for it after the first 10 minutes of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, seriously. what the crap was with that movie? Why was he walking everywhere? What the hell was up with the kids from Peter Pan in the cave… Why is everyone talking so much and not impaled on the grill of a semi-hauler with spikes welded on to it?)
The trailer does a great job of upping that anticipation. Check it out. (more…)
This time on the show, we’re talking about Star Wars and a bunch of stuff that isn’t Star Wars (but mainly Star Wars,) so buckle in for some talk about Star Wars ’cause we’ve got the teaser trailer, the careful and calm dissection of that trailer, adorabot naming rights, the finer points of DYI light sabery and, disbelief over the John Boyega hate.
Oh, and the other stuff? How about: (more…)
As promised in yesterday’s teaser, today is Judgement Day…. and by that I mean the day we judge our first look at the latest installment in the Terminator franchise.
Yes, the first full trailer for Terminator Genisys hit the ‘net today and as far as first looks go, it doesn’t look half bad. We have a new Sarah Conner (Emilia Clarke,) a new Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney,) and even a new John Conner (Jason Clarke,) sporting more facial scars than any actor in the role ever! More mean it’s good, right?
The real good news is that the Terminator remains the same. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger returning as the (a) T-800 is not news, we’ve known for a while now that he’ll be back as the aged cyborg from the future that raises this new timeline version of Sarah Conner since the history has been officially reset in this apparent soft reboot. At first look, the trailer eases some of the concerns many of us had about this redux of the franchise. (more…)
