Nathan Fillion Wants To Find Drake’s Fortune

15 Oct

by Captain Oblivious

 

Well this sounds familiar. Seems about a year ago I did a bit of fantasy casting for the Uncharted movie and while I ultimately said Chris Pine would be a great Nathan Drake I though Nathan Fillion would be awesome also.

Seems Fillion thinks that also. He is on a very public campaign to try and get the lead role in the upcoming movie based on the very popular Playstation video game. And where do you begin a grassroots campaign for anything these days? Why Twitter of course. Fillion wants his 650,000 fans to champion his cause and I for one am with him. He would be the not so obvious but nonetheless amazing choice to take over this hopefully soon to be franchise.

 

Captain’s Pick 3- October 2010

11 Oct

Welcome back to another thrilling edition of the Captain’s Pick 3. Ahh October is here bringing with it cool weather and a month filled with horror movies. Unless you live where I do and it happens to be October 11 and it is 93 degrees outside. Nature is a fickle mistress. Anyway let’s roll…..

 

3. Taco Bell


I told you the Pick 3 could be anything. Why Taco Bell you may ask? Well because as a person of limited fundage the bell of taco has kept food in my gullet on a regular basis for a long time. Now add in the 2 dollar combos and two new sauces (verde and fire roasted FYI) and Taco Bell is going to have a big October in my house….and colon.

 

2. Jackass 3D


Am I really that immature? I just put Taco Bell as my third most important thing in October so you tell me. Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn and the rest of the crew return to try and make me dry heave again only this time in the full wonder of the third dimension. HIGH FIVE!!

 

1. Fable 3

Ok I admit. I am a Peter Molyneux apologist. Does he over-promise on every game he has ever been involved in? Yes but that doesn’t mean that they are not fun, quality games. I put over 80 hours in Fable 2 and still did not complete all the side quests. It was one of my favorite games two years ago and I am super psyched about the third installment which has you building an army of followers to take over the throne of Albion. But when you do become ruler how will you rule? With a gentle heart or an iron fist? Hmmm can’t wait to see.

Zack Snyder Takes On The Man Of Steel

5 Oct

by Captain Oblivious

Thank holy God in heaven! As a nerd you wish certain things would happen that will make your nerdiness seem worthwhile and today is one of those days. Zack Snyder has been tapped by Christopher “the godfather” Nolan to direct Superman: The Man of Steel.

When it was announced that Snyder was on the short list of directors I was readily excited but still kept my reserve thinking the job would go to someone else. Nolan must have seen what I have in Snyder’s work. A love for the material he directs and an attention to detail that is almost unmatched except, possibly, by Nolan himself. Snyder is no stranger to the superhero flick already having the excellent Watchmen under his belt. Now he can add the apex of superheros to the mix.

Now the only question is who will Nolan, Snyder and company pick as their new Man of Steel. I would hope Brandon Routh would at least be given a chance to come back but I realize this is a reboot and it will be a fresh face.

Superman: The Man of Steel is targeted for a holiday 2012 release.
