Today’s edition of The Sunday Spew is brought to you from my bed, where I have remained for the best part of the day in an effort to recover from the weekend’s misconduct and the many plank-walkings that Captain Morgan made me do last night.
Despite not being able to discern if I’m too hot or too cold, or if this loss of vision is permanent or temporary, I have news to report so we must battle onward in the name of This Week In Geek.
A MOVIE OF A GAME THAT’S LIKE A MOVIE – Sony reportedly registered multiple domain names for The Last Of Us movie. While that doesn’t necessarily mean a film is a foregone conclusion, it is something that is obviously being discussed. Do you think The Last Of Us movie needs to be made?
Everyone is making googly eyes at Spidey. The trailer was released this week prompting all sorts of discussions and observations. For some hawk-eyed screenies and an excellent breakdown of the SEXY LITTLE SPIDER-MAN SNIPPET, see Tim’s Film Reviews.
FURIOUS WOMAN – We’re getting a Wonder Woman for Bats Vs Supe apparently, in the shape of Gal Gadot. The Miss Israel beauty is known for her recent role in Fast & Furious 6. The news was surprising to say the least, and one would think that controversial geek debate would break out but the common consensus seems to be that she can’t act.
In more MARVLIX news we hear that Drew Goddard has been drafted in to direct and write the Daredevil pilot.
THE IRON IS HOT – Before X-Men: Days of Future Past is even released, we get some spoilerific news from Bryan Singer himself, who prematurely ejaculated all over Twitter and revealed that X-Men: Apocalypse will follow in 2016.
And finally, THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 2 gets an official release date of 17th December. I’ll be there with bells on to greet returning Clementine and Omidget, my favourite gnome.
In Spew news this week I managed a post again, celebrated a few gongs and spread some award STDs among special friends and talented writers. Admire the link diarrhea here.
Again there were plenty of posts to keep me entertained these last few days while I pretended to work. MissRhiosace from Adventures of a Girl Gamer produced yet another brilliant GTA V post, where she detailed all of her favourite things to do online. The fabulous Jordan and Eddie take on one of my favourite comedies, Black Dynamite. Craig from 1001-Up.com gives us an idea of what could happen When Slender Man Retires (hint: still a better love story than Twilight).
The ape-strengthed Brian from Hard Ticket to Home Video returns with more deeply philosophical tweets from everyone’s favourite child star, Jaden Smith. Joseph from The Cinema Monster is hosting a Best of 2013 Vote so get over there and have your say, post haste, and this week I was introduced to the Five for the Fifth feature from Ruth and her most awesome blog, Flixchatter. My boy Dylan from treatmentofvisions also posted an awards acceptance speech, wherein he never forgets to thank The Cumberbatch and posits that I may be an invading lizard-alien. If you haven’t checked out his blog yet then you simply must, it’s extremely entertaining.
As I lay here, pondering last night’s Dr. Phil Night with the BFF (Dr. Phil Nights consist of consuming a lot of wine with Bestie and solving each other’s problems. Eventually with enough juice consumed we solve the ENTIRE WORLD’S problems and the therapy session usually ends in drunken dancing to celebrate), I feel a distinct lack of The FEAR, which normally accompanies such nights. Why is this, I don’t hear you wonder. Well, it could be because tomorrow heralds the beginning of my last week of work before the Christmas break. I managed to wrangle an early finish so I can sit around on my hole doing nothing but playing games and catching up on my mammoth Must Watch List. I may also venture outside once or twice to see loved ones. Maybe.
Have you anything to add? Tell me your news below!
With that joyous news out of the way, I will leave you on this beautiful parting note, courtesy of Kevin from The Mental Attic.
