Doctor Who blogging: “Listen”

14 September 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

[previous: “Robot of Sherwood”]

warning: spoilers!

So, the monster under the Doctor’s bed when he was a kid was Clara. Well, why not? She’s been responsible for every other important thing in his life.

And while we’re at it, why not another example of Steven Moffat’s recycling his own ideas — whatever you do, don’t look; the monster in the shadows; the impossible astronaut — and other Doctor Who-ish things: the knocking from outside in a place where nothing’s supposed to be alive; the stranded time-traveler who’s related to someone else in the episode. As long as it’s all a fairy tale anyway, it doesn’t need to actually hang together as a narrative, right?

Because: awwwww. The Doctor as a little boy! Fear is a superpower! Toy soldiers!

Anyway, none of it’s really real, right? Everyone has the dream about their ankle being grabbed from under the bed, »

Ubisoft Announces Toy Soldiers: War Chest

11 August 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ubisoft has announced a new entry in the much beloved Toy Soldiers franchise coming to the PS4 and Xbox One platforms, with War Chest.  Come inside to learn more about the return of this series and check out the game's first official trailer!

I'm not entirely familar with the franchise, but it is not to be confused with 3Do's Army Men series. Instead the series plays out with a bigger group of toys, beyond Army Men, and this time includes a Barbie doll like army! The game is very similar to a tower defense title. It looks rather neat if you ask me. 

The release date for Toy Soldiers: War Chest is early 2015 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. 

From Ubisoft: 

“Partnering with Ubisoft presented an opportunity to create the Toy Soldiers game we had always envisioned,” said D.R. Albright III, founder of Signal Studios. “Gamers of all »

Toy Soldiers: War Chest Brings War And Rainbows Together

11 August 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today, Ubisoft and Signal Studios took full advantage of the pre-gamescom buzz, by revealing Toy Soldiers: War Chest, a sequel that is noticeably more upbeat than those that came before it. Then again, I can’t remember seeing rainbows, unicorns and childhood toys in any sort of war-themed video game before.

Coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC in “Early 2015,” War Chest pits four armies against each other in confined, diorama-based warfare. The kicker is that this isn’t a traditional, man-versus-man conflict, but one that involves colourful toys and bubbles instead. That’s just one of the title’s four armies, though, and only two have been revealed so far. The remaining couple will not be detailed until closer to launch.

The game’s debut trailer is certainly an interesting one, which brings back memories of the previous Toy Soldiers games, before ditching tradition for hot pink and happy dances. »

Nick Minaj's unveils touching new single, 'Pills N Potions': Listen

21 May 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nicki Minaj shows a gentler side on “Pills N Potions,” the first single from “The Pink Print,” her upcoming album. Against a gentle, but persistent beat,  Minaj opens the song by singing in a vulnerable voice that she still loves someone and no amount of pills and potions can make her forget. She then goes into a rap that continues to show her softer side, as she declares “I still don’t wish death on them/I just reflect on them.” Phew! Produced by Dr. Luke, “Pills N Potions” is reminiscent of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s “Same Love” musically in terms of its tempo and Martika's 1988 hit, "Toy Soldiers" with its big drum beat.  “I get high off your memory/In time, you’ll be mine,” she sings in the ascending bridge. Those who like their Minaj with a dose of nasty may be turned off by this side of Minaj, »

The Legacy of Nolan’s Batman Trilogy: Good or Bad?

8 February 2014 7:48 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is acknowledged as a triumph of the action film/comic book genres, did the series ultimately do as much harm as good to the entertainment industry? As well done as they films were, is the vast shadow from the Nolan/Bale trilogy doing damage to the film/TV medium?

When something in the entertainment industry is popular and successful, it’s inevitable that it will have an influence on future films. For instance, the popularity of Die Hard began the ‘one-man-in-a-limited-area-battling-a-group-of-terrorists’ trend. (Under Siege/Under Siege 2, Air Force One, Speed, Toy Soldiers, Cliffhanger, Sudden Death, the Rock, Passenger 57, Con Air) Some of these movies are good, and some aren’t, but they are all examples of how Hollywood sees imitation as the sincerest form of profit.

The Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman trilogy was immensely popular, highly profitable and critically well received. Therefore, »

Dead Island And Toy Soldiers: Cold War Are Your Games With Gold For February

31 January 2014 12:34 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two very different Xbox 360 titles make up this month’s Games With Gold promotion, as Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Cold War are the latest free offerings from Microsoft.

Available starting February 1st will be Dead Island, the zombie-themed first person shooter from Techland. Normally carrying a cost of $19.99, the title first burst onto the scene in early 2011 with a gorgeous pre-rendered trailer depicting the death and infection of a small child. Although the final product had little to do with that trailer besides the fact that they both featured zombies, Dead Island still averaged a decent 70% on Metacritic and received a solid review from us back when it launched.

Coming on February 16th will be Toy Soldiers: Cold War, the 2011 strategy title from Signal Studios. As the sequel to the original Toy Soldiers, Cold War transported gamers away from World War I setting of the original to »

Spotlight On…David Koepp – Co-Writer Of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

7 January 2014 12:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Each month, we turn our spotlight onto the unsung artists behind the biggest new movie releases. This month: David Koepp, co-writer of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

A graduate of UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television, David Koepp has a name that is familiar to moviegoers around the world, although they may not realize why. It’s one of those names that crops up regularly, on all kinds of film posters and credit rolls, in all sorts of capacities. He has worked as a Producer, Actor, Second Unit Director, Assistant Director, Director, Writer and even Songwriter, on an epic roster of films that would make even Spielberg’s toes curl – though he had a hand in some of them.

While his resume shows him to be a man of many talents, it is screenwriting that has made his name internationally recognizable. David Koepp is one of the most prolific screenwriters in Hollywood, »
