Geek Tip: Don’t Go See Allegiant

No one can save you from the final movie except yourself.  Rise above!
No one can save you from the final movie except yourself. Rise above!

I’m here to save you.  Yesterday, Tom posted a first look at the Allegiant trailer.  He didn’t know, so we can’t blame him.  But Allegiant wasn’t just a bad book, it was so bad it ruined the previous two books.  And there’s no way the movie can be any different.  I won’t spoil it for you, because even I’m not that evil, but if you saw either/both of the first two Divergent movies, please jump after the break to read why you should absolutely, unequivocally avoid the third movie.

Podcast Reaction: The Ryan Edition

Ryan likes this movie.

I’ve been doing podcast reactions for a while now, even before I got tapped to write for this site.  In that time, I have picked on Jenny and Watson quite a bit.  Why not?  Jenny is three ducks in a woman suit who doesn’t know who Max von Sydow is despite his memorable roles in both The Exorcist and Flash Gordon–leading to my theory that someone is finally continuing Flash Gordon‘s “To be continued” tag when Ming the Merciless is revealed to be the bad guy in Star Wars Episode VII.  Watson just has that one picture that makes it rather easy.  Heck, it doesn’t matter what other pictures I use, that picture will be the one that appears on Facebook for any article I write and use it for.

But aside from pointing out just how much Ryan likes the awful, awful Krull, I don’t pick on him that much.

I’m not going to pick on him now, because this post is an intervention.

Kate Beckinsale Bought A New Leather Jumpsuit, Figures May As Well Make Another Underworld Movie

katebeckIf someone were to look up Kate Beckinsale’s mortgage payments you could probably track to the exact month when she makes a new Underworld movie.  The first movie, hated by critics (a harsh 31% on RottenTomatoes) was still loved by movie-goers for its novel vampire/werewolf war and Matrix aesthetics and stunts. Evolution, the second in the series, was hit with a 16% while the third and fourth in the series earned a 29% and 26%. They’ve all pulled in over $50 million, with the exception of the third perhaps because Ms Beckinsale only narrated.

Still, if you loved the first four films then you’ll be pleased to know the fifth is on its way.  I’m sure it won’t at all be like the other four but you’ll enjoy its thoroughly unique tight leather outfits, dark set pieces, and slow motion stunts as vampires fight werewolves with swords and bullets.
