Sorry for the delay in posting today, friends! I ran into a wall last night while I was working on this and a few other things and didn’t quite get everything done. But before we start, let me say: Happy Captain America: The Winter Soldier release day! I’m so looking forward to seeing it tonight.

I also ran across this article about the new game from the Mass Effect creators, which involves “space nuns."

The NEStalgia series of papercraft art by Steph Caskenette are very cool.

  1. Oh man, the TMNTs are going to annoy me so much now that I've seen how much better they could look with their original turtley snouts! I knew they looked super gross and creepy and just wrong when I watched the trailer but now I know precisely what it is that's so wrong.
    While they're replacing their voices, can they also fix their faces? LOL

  2. Can't wait to see Captain on Sunday!!

    I didn't even know Fantastic Beasts was being adapted, yet alone into a trilogy. Not quite sure how I feel about it. Could be cool to see; part of me just want's to say 'Let it rest!'.
    I don't even want to talk about how sad I was at the Ninja Turtle trailer. Ugh.
    The concept for Pixels sounds pretty sweet - I hadn't heard of it before!

    Holy. Crap. That Sherlock art is stunning.
    Kermit as a human is terrifying.

  3. Bane Cat! xDDD And so much good movie news. Again. (except the new Ninja Turtles; the trailer almost made me cry and not in a good way)/

    And Tom Hiddleston could sell anything. Literally, anything. He could sell me a rock.

  4. Right? I'm so uninterested in seeing Michael Bay ruin childhoods with this movie. I really hope it turns out way better than everything's hinting it's going to be.

  7. Good gravy it was amazing!! I loved it so much more than I was expecting. As in, I liked it as much as Avengers (seriously), and that's a big deal. We are actually considering seeing it again in theaters, which we haven't done with a movie SINCE Avengers.

  8. Yay! Glad to hear that. I LOVED it. I'm so in awe of how Marvel keeps making better and better movies.
