Second gameplay trailer for ‘Micro Machines World Series’

24 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Codemasters and Koch Media have today released the second gameplay trailer for the eagerly anticipated (at least by us) Micro Machines World Series ahead of its release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam (PC) on June 23rd. Check it out below:

From the press release:

Racing has always been at the heart of Micro Machines, and Micro Machines World Series sees that heart beat back into action. With hundreds of customisations available, you can race in style and make sure you are seen on the start line. Chief Game Designer Gavin Cooper says: “For the first time in a Micro Machines game, every car has its own entirely distinct personality… and arsenal! Each gives players a different way to play and enjoy the game, meaning fans of the series will have plenty to sink their teeth into.”

“Players will quickly gain an affinity with a particular vehicle and find it suits their style of play. »

12 April 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This week sees the release of British action sequel We Still Steal The Old Way on digital download, with DVD and Blu-ray following on 17th April. The film is a follow-up to the 2014 crime drama We Still Kill The Old Way and sees the return of the old-school Archer gang, led by the charismatic Richie Archer, who this time hatches a plan to pull off an audacious robbery. Halfway through the heist, the gang get caught, and they’re sent down. So far, so good – now they’re in prison they can put into motion their plot to spring fellow inmate George, who desperately needs to get out before his wife dies. Trouble arises when Richie’s arch enemy Vic Farrow gets himself transferred into the prison, wanting to settle some old scores.

10 Crazy Full-Motion Video Game Performances By Well-Respected Actors

23 March 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Tim Curry has stolen my heart and he’s taking it into Communist space.

Full-Motion Video games were a mid- to late-1990s fad that were either semi-playable movies (where you shot at bad guys running on screen) or incorporated live-action cutscenes into otherwise animated games. Think Who Framed Roger Rabbit? but on your grandma’s PC. They’re usually all as silly as you’d imagine, either aimed at a younger audience delighted to watch some over-the-top fantasy or an older audience wowed by the possibilities of technology. It seems like the perfect home for character actors and infomercial escapees to camp it up with little career risk and some quick cash, right?

The weird thing is how many A-list actors — or at least people you’d never expect — appeared in these games. What’s even weirder is how crazy most of their roles were. Nobody’s a heartfelt dramatic lead, they »

The Outsider’s Opinion: Who Can Play the New Doctor Who?

6 February 2017 8:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe with an outsider’s opinion on who could play the next Doctor in Doctor Who

There’s a certain level of fandom reserved for a select type of film or TV show. Think of Trekkies, or Star Wars nuts, or Adam Sandler fans…okay, forget Adam Sandler, but as well as those who know the exact design breakdowns of the Enterprise or the Death Star down to the amount of coffee dispensers, there’s also a group of fans who know all there is to know about Doctor Who. They can explain exactly the science behind the Tardis, or that screwdriver thingy that the Doctor uses. Hell, they know what that thingy is called. Maybe they’ve been avid fans since the relaunch in 2005, or perhaps some of the elder Who geeks have stood by since the days of the Bakers’ or Davison, Pertwee, McCoy etc.

I’m not a Who fan. »

One Star Wars Star Warned George Lucas About Jar Jar Binks

11 January 2017 11:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At this point, it is almost becoming needless to pile onto the hate parade that has been marching in the direction of the Star Wars prequels for more than a decade now. Disney is once again making quality Star Wars movies and hopefully, we can all move on from the prequel trilogy. Still, one of the worst elements of the prequels, Jar Jar Binks, is a thorn in the side of the epic saga that many fans can't quite shake. It turns out that actor Brian Blessed, who played Gungan leader Boss Nass in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, tried to warn George Lucas about Jar Jar during production.

YouTuber Jamie Stangroom has been tracking down some of the lesser known actors from the Star Wars universe across various movies, interviewing them on his YouTube channel. He recently had Brian Blessed on and the subject of Jar Jar Binks came up. »
