Movie director and renowned internet darling (ahem) Michael Bay has been doing the press rounds for his new movie, Pain and Gain. You can read Den Of Geek’s take on that film here. While charming the pants off of the press like the roguish cad that he is, Bay took the opportunity to comment on the hubbub surrounding the upcoming Ninja Turtles movie reboot that he’s producing.
Last year, the internet slumped to the floor, red faced from screaming and overcome with emotion, as Bay suggested in an 11 second comment that the Ninja Turtles would be aliens in the upcoming film.
Of course, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have, traditionally, been mutants. It’s in the name. Such a significant change to their backstory seemed »

With his latest film out now, Matt looks back at Rob Zombie's directing career to date, leading up to the nightmarish Lords Of Salem...
I love Rob Zombie. Here at Den Of Geek, we prefer to match the film to the writer most likely to enjoy it. You know, we actually like enjoying films. I’m Den Of Geek’s go to guy for all things Rob Zombie, and not just because I look weird and have a cool beard. What I’m getting at here is that if you’re looking to have a moan about the divisive director, this isn’t the article you’re after. Try Google, you’ll definitely find it. But we’re celebrating Rob Zombie over here, and we’re simply having too much fun to have time for anyone trying to bring us down.

The recent straight-to-video output of Wesley Snipes comes under Matt's spotlight, as he delves into four obscure action thrillers...
It was thought to be around 400 years ago that nature asked the question. We only learned the answer in 1962 – it was Wesley Snipes. Ever since, scientists have been working around the clock, trying to identify just what the question was. Not so we can ask it again, nor avoid asking it – just so we can be aware that if we do ask it, Wesley Snipes is the consequence.
Not for the first time, Den of Geek has to step in for science, as it’s going horribly wrong. To spend your time working out what caused Wesley Snipes is fine, but not at the expense of keeping an eye on what he’s been up to. Simply locking him up in a prison cell and »

The conviction of newly released straight-to-video action movie fight-fest Maximum Conviction was never in doubt. The film is set in a prison, after all. But its maximumness? That’s raised a few questions. I’m in the question answering business, so I sat down to watch the film to see just how maximum it was. The answer is that it was surprisingly maximum. In fact, it was so maximum that I felt compelled to list the 10 most maximum things about it. Why 10? Because it’s the maximum the editors would allow me.

The recent announcement that Megan Fox will be playing April O’Neil in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film caused the internet to do that thing it does whenever Michael Bay’s name is mentioned. While I love bellowing, I’m not really going to get into that today, as it seems like the thing people are most angry is about is Michael Bay’s face and I don’t really have a problem with it. I think his face is all right.
What I will mention, though, is my surprise that they didn’t cast someone made entirely out of Lego bricks.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lego has just come out, and goodness me, it’s great. »

For cheap entertainment, look no further than your local discount shop. Here are the three gems Matt managed to dig up...
Conjecture over how we will watch films in the future is always riveting. We’re all lucky, then, to live in a time when you’re unlikely to go as long as seven minutes without being accosted by a self-proclaimed expert who’d like to vomit their opinions on the subject into your ears.
I have no interest in going fully digital until Poundland stops selling DVDs. For those unfamiliar with Poundland, it’s a chain of large shops in the UK that sell a wide variety of items for a pound. Some of the stuff is great, some terrible and some utterly baffling. There aren’t many places you can go to buy a toilet brush, an army action figure, a box of After Eight mints, »
