For reasons unknown…seriously unknown…there’s a petition online to have George Lucas direct Star Wars Episode IX.
2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
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.
Last week on the podcast, I was actually there.
No. Really. That was me. I got to smell Watson’s various odors.
Disney owns a lot of stuff right now. It freaked me out a wee little bit last year when I stopped at a Disney Store last Christmas and was reminded they now have Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and the Muppets.
Point is, we here at Gabbing Geek have inadvertently ignored one of those properties because another one just put out a new movie.
Anyway, here’s some thoughts on the new Netflix series Jessica Jones. SPOILERS after the cut.
Look, do I need to draw a map? Everyone knows what came in #1 last weekend. The only question is how much did it come in #1 by. Seriously, was there any chance it wouldn’t?
You know what’s even odder? All the Gabbing Geeks have seen that movie by now, and no one has written a review for it. Not even Ryan listing all the things that were wrong about it, which he even does for movies he likes.
Anyway, more results after the cut.
OK, Star Wars fans. quick question: which movie was worse, Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones?
See, Menace has the comedic stylings of Jar Jar Binks and obnoxious pre-teen Anakin Skywalker. Attack has a lot of half-assed romance and obnoxious post-teen Anakin Skywalker. I’d actually rather see Phantom Menace given the choice. At least that one had some pod racing.
But hey, we’re not skipping Attack of the Clones.
I don’t get to the movies as often as I would like, which means sometimes I am a bit late seeing things. But they give me space to write here, so here’s a quick review of Big Hero 6.
There may be some mild SPOILERS after the cut.
Once again, there was no podcast this week. Furthermore, both of our regular readers may have noticed that there’s been a continuous drop-off in the number of daily published articles. Does this coincide with the advertising that mysteriously appeared? I dunno. Maybe.
But apparently, whatever made Watson disappear has become contagious.
Hey, another weekend passed, and our usual box office guy, Watson, is still on special assignment covering the civil war in Ukraine. He said there was geek value to it, and who are we to say no to Watson putting himself in harm’s way?
So, here’s another box office report.
This week on the podcast, there wasn’t one. In fact, this marks the second podcast-free week in a row.
In fact, there’s also been a slowdown in Gabbing Geek article production if anyone cared to notice. The reason for both these things is sad and unfortunate.
Watson is missing. Please help us find our Watson.
