X-Men: First Class was a disgrace to comic continuity. There’s no question about that. However, if you disregard comic cannon, you’ll find the prequel offers a good deal of fun. Action, thrills, tough moral questions. It’s all there. In every sense it’s genuinely First Class (ba dum dum tish).
Anyway, if you liked the flick you’ll probably want to immerse yourself in the ‘making of’ experience. It’s all in the BluRay, but if you’re too cheap for that, we got you covered. Thanks to YouTube user jasminemaomao, we have the full behind the scenes ‘Making Of’ videos. It’s pretty interesting stuff, or so I’ve been told. To be honest, I didn’t listen to any of the 8 videos below. I only watched for the boobs. January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence and Jane Goldman (she penned the script). X-Men: FAP Class.
The complete Star Wars saga comes to Bluray this September, on the 12th internationally and the 16th in North America. Yes, yet another version to own and more money to stuff in George Lucas‘ pockets. How many different versions of the original trilogy do you own? Me? About 4; original unaltered not remastered video tape, unaltered remastered video tape, altered remastered video tape and DVD versions. Time for Bluray to join the family.
Anyway, today Lucasfilm released another trailer and if you’re not sold yet give it a watch. Hell, even if you are planning to pick up the Blurays watch; it’ll remind you of all the unreleased footage, rare documentaries and gorgeous picture and sound you’re about to own.
Star Wars and Comic-Con. They’ve been together since 1974 and are one of the longest and strongest relationships in the whole geek world. Could you imagine a Comic-Con without legions of Stormtroopers and Slave Leias? Unthinkable!
This year they brought out some real goodies Star Wars nerds are going to lose themselves over. First, in celebration of the entire Star Wars saga coming to Bluray we were treated to a sneak peak at those promised deleted scenes. This sizzle reel of clips shows off never before seen footage from the original trilogies, like Luke with his new lightsaber and R2-D2 running like hell from a Wampa. Or rolling, he can’t really run.
Excited? It’s new Star Wars that wasn’t a hack job to score more money from fans! Or, wait, these probably are included to give us more reason to throw away money on movies we already own five times over. But, whatever, whoo! Star Wars on Bluray come September!
For the other big Star Wars announcement today, you’ve heard of Kinect Star Wars, right? The new Kinect game releasing this holiday season which will allow you to be a Jedi. Well, as close to a Jedi as Microsoft and LucasArts can manage, which from what I’ve seen looks pretty damn good. With the Kinect you’ll be able to wield a lightsaber, control the force, pilot a pod racer and possibly even murder younglings but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet.
In another totally awesome way to smuggle more money from us they’ve released a Kinect Star Wars bundle with what may the coolest skin for an Xbox 360…ever! It’s an Xbox designed to look and sound like Artoo with a golden controller channeling Threepio’s shiny ass! Just look at it! It’s soooo beautiful. It’s only going to set you back about $500, but for this much beautiful awesomeness, that’s chump change. Here are the specs,
