Grant Morrison’s Sci-Fi Mahabharata?! Sign me up!

Kurukshetra

Oh hell yes! Lunatic comic mastermind Grant Morrison is re-imagining one of India’s greatest ancient epics, as he puts it;

“… like a psychedelic The Lord of the Rings with Star Wars technology”

My god, that’s what the term “geekstasy” was made for! How is this the first I have heard of this stunning project? Apparently this was originally planned as a comic book to be published by Virgin Comics but having since been bought out and absorbed by Liquid Comics, it has been re-conceived as 3 hour epic CGI drama! Check out the teaser over at 18-Days.com, where you can also read Mr. Morrison’s extensive notes on his vision of the tale, along with a gallery of gorgeous concept art. Feast your eyes and drink in the transcendent nerdery!

KICK-ASS Brings the Pain!!!

KickAss_MustHave_Cover Thanks to an intrepid comic-con attendee we have our first blurry, bootlegalicious looks at the Matthew Vaughn directed Kick-Ass film adaptation! We get to see the titular hero’s first shaky attempts at vigilantism, an 11 year-old girl who makes Charles Bronson look like…well…an 11 year old girl, and one clip that begs for the tagline;

“You won’t believe a man can fly”

Seeing these clips I get the feeling this may just make an even better film than a comic. Since the entire premise is “what if this happened in the real world”, once you actually see it with your own eyes in concrete reality, the absurdity and brutality of it is absolutely infectious!

Watch ’em while you can!

Heroes Season 4: Redemption or Revenge?

Heroes

First look at the upcoming season of Heroes!

Vol 5: Redemption

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I realize I may be in the minority here but I simply didn’t hate the last couple seasons of Heroes like so many of my very vocal nerdy contemporaries. Sure, I have a few criticisms here and there (ok, so I did kinda want to hit Claire’s season 2 boyfriend in the face with a hammer) but overall I still think it’s an incredibly fun show with endless potential.

That being said, like everyone else, I too hope this season is able to reclaim the spark of the first and college lesbian experimentation and super-powered circus freaks are as good a place to start as any!

Heroes season 4 will commence with a 2 hour premiere Monday, September 21!

Secret Societies: The DHARMA Initiative Exposed!

Like a little truth sprinkled in with your fiction?

Part 1 of 5 of a 1980’s exposé of the of the clandestine group The DHARMA Initative.

Having read my fair share of conspiracy research you can imagine my eyes opened wide upon viewing this latest viral clip from the producers of Lost. It’s not a sign of paranoia when you think the TV is giving you secret messages is it?

On an amusing sidenote check out DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.comNuff said.

Mixed Reactions to Marvel Anime

We got our first glimpses of 2 of the 4 planned Warren Ellis scripted Marvel Anime series this weekend, Iron Man and Wolverine! While I am stoked as hell for anything that mad bastard Ellis does, I’ve got mixed feelings about what I’ve seen here and judging by general buzz of my geeky brethren around the internet I am far from alone.

First off, I thought Iron Man looked incredible and seemed especially well suited (no pun intended) for the anime treatment. The detail of the armor is fantastic and the action looks powerfully kinetic!

Wolverine however leaves me feeling a bit wary. They went for a very uncharacteristic thin and lanky look, very gaunt face with a ridiculous anime mullet. In fact, aside from the claws there is absolutely nothing in his design that indicates that this is Wolverine. Now it is important to keep in mind that these are meant to be Japanese re-imaginings of the characters so they do have a bit more creative leeway. Hopefully Mr. Ellis will deliver a story bad ass enough (which he says will be loosely based on Claremont/Miller miniseries) to make us forget how friggin’ weird he looks.

Both series are expected to debut Spring 2010.
