So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious?  See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.

What Movies Could Sneak Into 2015’s Top Ten Grossing Films? (or “How Bad is Ryan’s B.O.?”)

In a January article by Gabbing Geek’s own Ryan Garcia, he predicted the 2015 Top Ten Grossing films (domestic).  Rule of thumb says that to crack the top ten,  a film will need to surpass $200M+. Some of Ryan’s picks were right.  Some were wrong.    Where will we wind up and what could spoil Ryan’s top ten list?

“X-Soup” Casts a New Nightcrawler

Jenny has complained several times on the Gabbing Geek podcast about how Batman v Superman is turning into Batsoup with all the characters being cast.  Maybe X-Men:  Apocalypse is the next soup du jour, because after ALL the casting news of late on the next franchise installment featuring the mutie scum, we now have a new Nightcrawler.

Movie Remakes That Actually Make Sense

remakesRemakes are always a controversial subject.  A few weeks ago, I wrote about how a remake of my favorite Hitchcock film made my nervous, even though it was to be helmed by one of my favorite directors.  I think that is why Roger Ebert once said that they shouldn’t remake great movies; they should remake movies with great premises which were poorly executed.  Here are ten movies that fall between interesting stinkers and some of the most beloved classics of all time.

Stewart/McKellen will NOT appear in the next X-Men movie!


The old make way for the young:

In an interview with Larry King, Patrick Stewart (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”) delivered some sad news. When asked if he was going to be in the next X-Men film, Stewart replied, “No. Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either.” Wow, not only is Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier not going to be in it, but  McKellen’s master of magnetism Erik Lehnsherr, aka Magneto, won’t appear either. That’s a bummer, man.

Probably the right move, but I like these two so much that it still makes me a little sad.

Casting Rumors for Young Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey

Time travel makes all things possible.  Because X-Men: Days of Future Past employed the ol’ “time travel to fix problems” move, we will see Wolverine and folliclely UNchallenged Professor X cultivating the talents of younger versions of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey.  Such a reboot like that could only be found in….well….in an X-Men COMIC BOOK.  So now, we get to recast these roles with young talent to battle Apocalypse.  Who will it be???
