People have a right to cake. That's why Madeira sponge is at the top of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.
With the imminent demise of The Great British Bake-Off in its current form, Den Of Geek saw a gap in the cake-based competion market and duly filled it. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Geeks Bake Things!
The idea is simple: make a nerdily themed cake for something in the area of five pounds (we're not expecting receipts but don't go mad), send us in a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could win something brilliant out of our cupboard. The deadline for entries is one week from today, Tuesday the 27th of September.

With a budget of £5 at their local pound shop, we set three of our writers the challenge of building a Dalek. Did they manage it? Er…
Channelling the spirit of summer school holiday classic Why Don’t You?, Den Of Geek decided its writers should just switch off their television sets and go out and do something less boring instead. That thing would be to construct a home-made Dalek to the best of their abilities, using a budget of £5* and items purchased at their local pound shop.
Here’s what happened.
*We were allowed to go up to £7 if required. Anyone that chose to go up to £7 definitely did not cheat - Lm

Can you build a Dalek for £5 using just items from your local poundshop? It wasn’t a question I was ever expecting to »
Anyone who’s nostalgic for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle” cartoon series from the ‘80s and ‘90s will appreciate a new animated Tmnt short from Jhonen Vasquez, the creator of Nickelodeon’s “Invader Zim.”
The San Diego Comic Con exclusive is a six-minute cartoon entitled “Don vs. Raph,” and it features an epic battle between the brothers over who is the better fighter. While the heroes in the half-shell are known for being equally goofy as they are masters of martial arts, Vasquez’s short sees Donatello and Raphael compete in some pretty bizarre activities after beating each other to a pulp and deciding fighting won’t settle their score.
What kinds of activities? The brothers go head to head in everything from video games to baking to Jenga. There’s also a beauty pageant, »

“Cold War II” in its second week narrowly held off “When Larry Met Mary” at the top of a Chinese box office in which local titles took the first six places.
Hong Kong-set crime thriller, “Cold War II” scored $15.6 million over the weekend, lifting its 10 day cumulative to $85.3 million, according to data from Ent Group. It held top place on Saturday and Sunday but was beaten on Friday by romance “Larry.”
“Larry,” produced by Hong Kong’s Peter Chan, scored $15.6 million in its opening three days. Its per screen averages were weaker than “Cold War” on each outing and it slipped to third place on Sunday behind animation “Big Fish and Begonia.”
“Big Fish” earned $14 million over the weekend and pushed it to $68.4 million over 10 days. That makes it one of the best performing Chinese animation films of all time.
Horror thriller “Tik Tok” opened in fourth place with $7.82 million. »

After weeks of Hollywood domination, the Chinese box office saw a trio of local films take the top places over the July 8-10 weekend.
Top ranked was crime actioner “Cold War II” with $43.8 million, according to data from Ent Group. Second was animation “Big Fish & Chinese Flowering Crabapple” with $34.4 million, with romance “So Young 2: Never Gone” in third with $26.8 million.
“Cold War II” played strongly through all the weekend, peaking conventionally on Saturday. Its success may a relief for many in the industry, as it seems to prove the durability of the Hong Kong crime action genre when well-executed, the endurance of star power (Aaron Kwok, Tony Leung Ka-fai, Eddie Peng and Charlie Yeung among the big names,) and the usefulness as a commercial launch pad of the Shanghai Festival, where it had been the opening film.
The score by “Big Fish” immediately make it one of China’s top home grown animations. »

Chris Cooper reviews Tmnt: Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything! #3…
Chaos spreads and the next stop in Bebop and Rocksteady’s itinerary is Stockgen when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles where just regular baby Turtles!
See Also: Preview of Tmnt: Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything! #3
My initial feeling upon seeing the artists for #3 this weekly series was one of deflation. No Sophie Campbell equals a sad Chris.
The abiding feeling I’m left with upon finishing the issue however is one of shock. I can’t go into it as it would constitute a mahoosive spoiler but suffice to say I saw something that really upset me. In a good story way mind you, I’m not outraged or anything. The very nature of this story, with all it’s time travelling, makes me wonder if anything we see happen will ultimately matter anyway. Would Idw let he outcome of a mini-series affect it’s main title?
To circle back round and pick up the art aspect we only have two artists this week – Ben Bates and Damien Couceiro, with Couceiro taking on the meat of it. I quite like his turtles even though they seem rather toothy. Some of his expressions remind of the original live action film which is never a bad thing. His Rocksteady looks particularly vicious too.
Overall I’m really pleased with how the story is progressing but there is one aspect that isn’t sitting well with me at all. Donatello breaking the fourth wall. He’s done it once before already and does so again. I don’t recall it happening before in Idw Tmnt and it feels very out of place. Mikey is the conduit for things being explained; I don’t think we need to bed spoon fed as much as we are. Time travel is a complicated thing for sure but when it’s coming across well enough in the story itself there’s no need for more explanation.
That’s a nitpick though. The series is still going strong.

The antics of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Donatello were always going to be perfect for a franchise. Not only does it give a chance for adults to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane to their infancy when they used to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in cartoon and movie form, but it allows them to introduce the heroes in a half-shell to their offspring, too. But what are the chances that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows will be followed by another sequel? Well, according to its cast, that.s the plan. I had the opportunity to sit down with the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows last month, where I asked them about the potential of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3. And having only just made his debut as Casey Jones in Out Of The Shadows, Stephen Amell admitted that he is »
“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.
Welcome to June: The Summer Month of Sequels with five such examples ranging from, “That could be cool” to “Who even wants that?” There are a couple studio pictures with a modicum of interest attached worming their way in and A24 is thankfully bringing out two of its latest to help us cope.
So while there will be a lot of new posters at your local cineplex, most of them will be for the same movie infiltrating half the screens available that weekend. Money talks, though. If we »

Some things in life we just know to be true. The sun rises in the east, snow is cold, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles love pizza. Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael – the crime-fighting quartet known as Tmnt – aren’t the only ones who have a thing for a pie of their own. Pizza also happens to be one of those palate-pleasing dishes that pretty much all kids adore. In honor of the newest installment in the franchise, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of...

It wouldn't be a third person brawler game without some character specialties. That's exactly what Activision is showing off in the Character Trailers for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan!
These trailers show highlights of each turtle and what they bring to the team. Leonardo’s determined focus, Raphael’s explosive attacks, Donatello’s calculating genius and Michelangelo’s wild energy are on full display. Not to mention, the environments and enemies that the Heroes in a Half Shell will encounter.
Activision has worked really hard, marketing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. So far, we've seen a couple of gameplay trailers, a villains trailer, and now character trailers. That's a lot of content for most video games. Perhaps, they're trying to pounce on the hype train, as Tmnt Out of the Shadows approaches. It's a smart move for the developer. Especially, since the game looks really good. »

Check out the new Boss trailer for Tmnt: Mutants in Manhattan, that Activision released! It features some awesome gameplay between the Turtles and Rocksteady, Bebop, General Krang, Shredder, among others!
The first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan was pretty awesome. However, this new "Boss" trailer may have gotten us even more hyped for the new game. I love some of the first person aspects they're incorporating. Also, the humor of Bebop is just on point. If you weren't excited before, you have to be excited to play this game now.

The upcoming sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is going to be full of nostalgic fan service. The follow-up to 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is adding a number of favorite characters, good and bad, including the alien Krang, the anti-hero vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell) and the mutated thugs Bebop and Rocksteady. Also, the four "Heroes in a Half Shell" -- Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo and Raphael -- will now have new transport that's basically a fresh take on an old vehicle. Instead of the classic Turtle Van, the movie features a tricked-out garbage truck (according to its toy, it's called the Turtle Tactical Truck). And you can see it in action in this clip that debuted at this week's Kids Choice...

The classic 1980s animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back! The four brothers are returning in their original TV incarnation for a very special episode of the current Nickelodeon CGI-animated series titled Trans-Dimensional Turtles. And that's not the only big surprise this exciting crossover has in store.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seen on Nickelodeon's current series will travel into the 80s Turtles' alternate dimension in order to defeat the Krang from that era. And the original Tmnt crew will be heading to current times to take down Krang Sub-Prime. If that wasn't awesome enough, the Turtles will also be traveling to a third dimension where another crazy surprise awaits.
Yes, we'll also be seeing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as they appeared in Kevin Eastman's Mirage Studios comic book series. If that's not enough to get you excited, then perhaps the first clip from this upcoming animated adventure will do the trick. »
