For all the little gangsta's out there R* just updated their site with GTA V! Most people realize the V is a roman numeral 5 so why the word FIVE bannered over the V? I'm gonna take a guess that the V either stands for Vice City or Vegas..Any other guesses?
So check R* on 11-2-11

Movie Review: Batman Year One

Got a chance to watch Batman Year One yesterday, Warner Bro's animation studios did a great job realizing Frank Millers graphic novel. The movie starts with Bruce Wayne returning to Gotham and Lt. James Gordon starting his career over in Gotham after being transferred from Chicago PD, the two quickly realize just how corrupt Gotham is. Gordon meets his new partner, Detective Arnold Flass, Flass tells Gordon how things "work around here". Gordon realizes he's got his work cut out for him.
Like the saying goes "there's nothing more dangerous than an honest cop."
Gordon begins to go against the grain when he saves a bunch of child hostages from an Arkham Asylum escapee single handedly without the help of Gotham's SWAT team lead by LT Brenan. Meanwhile Bruce Wayne struggles to find the persona that will strike fear into the fear mongers of Gotham, but after a street fight with a pimp, his ho and Selina Kyle, Bruce Wayne barely manages to escape and make his way back to stately Wayne manor. It's there that the Dark Knight is born and soon word of the Batman makes it's way to Commissioner Gillian Loeb's office. Batman crashes Carmine Falcone's dinner party where he promises to all the crime bosses and crooked politicians that they will be brought to justice.
Commissioner Loeb puts Gordon in charge of a special task force to bring Batman to "justice" this is where James Gordons career against crime in Gotham becomes intertwined with Batman's ...

Batman Year One is a fantastic movie that is as entertaining as Batman Begins, with many of the same elements and characters seen in Nolan's films. Wether you're a fan of Nolan's series or not, this animated movie should be seen! The story is so well written and the characters are perfectly developed, I never knew Jim Gordon was such a bad ass cop! And the little fan service sprinkled throughout is a nice touch, Scarface in Loeb's office!
The movie deals with very adult theme's and I don't recommend it for younger viewers under 7, but if you're mature enough this is a great movie that stands on it's own and compliments Christopher Nolan's films very nicely! Any fan of the Dark Knight owes to themselves to check this out!

Transformers Prime Season Finale Review

I just sat thru a 3 & 1/2 hour Transformers marathon and my childhood memories were resurrected! I started off my little marathon with a trip back to 1987 with The Transformers animated movie, then I fired up the ol DVR and watched Transformers Prime episodes 23 24pt1, pt 2 and pt3.

Absolutely amazing! This show is written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, recognize the names???
They are the co creators and executive producers of Fringe with J.J. Abrams, which in my opinion is one of the best shows on TV today, and interestingly enough they are also the writers of the first two Michael Bay Transformers movies...which, again, my opinion are absolute shit fests.  I think we all know who is to blame for those hot messes.
Anyway any fan of the G1 series will not be disappointed by Transformers Prime, I can't hype this series enough, give it chance you'll be pleasantly surprised! Transformers Prime airs Saturdays 8:30 pm EST / 5:30 pm PT.
For more intel on Transformers Prime check out hubworld

Movie Review: Real Steel

It's sad when a movie based on rockem' sockem' robots has more heart than a multi-million dollar franchise about sentient robotic life forms from another planet.
Real Steel doesn't pull any punches, what you see is what you get, a dead beat dad down on his luck, an adoptive couple who want a child but don't want to sacrifice their lifestyle in the process, a son who losses his mother and now finds he's an inconvenience to both his father and the couple who plan to adopt him and an old G2 sparring bot that bridges the gap between father and son.
Hugh Jackman did a decent job playing a total asshat in this movie, even by the end I really didn't care for Charlie Kenton, his son Max on the other hand was enjoyable and brought a solid performance to this movie, as I was watching him in the movie I was thinking to myself. "this kid would've made a much better anakin Skywalker than Jake Loyd" but then I remembered who wrote and directed TPM...
The real star in this movie was Atom, the old second generation sparring bot recovered by young Max. Seeing Max working with Atom was cute but the fights were the highlight of this movie, the effects are well done and are as entertaining as watching Rocky Balboa go toe to toe with Apollo Creed especially the title fight where Atom fights Zeus.
The movie is rife with stereotypes like Japanese make great tech but can't operate it....but neither can adults....only teens "get it". The movie also hints at the tension between good ol boys and blacks, that scene felt forced and really didn't didn't need to be in the movie.
Real Steel has some charm and you'll be routing for Atom till the bell rings,the fights are entertaining and the special effects are well done. Basically Real Steel is rockem sockem robots meets Rocky.
