Spongebob Documentary

Watching it right now, and it's great. Just seeing the people who do the voice acting for the show is really cool. And to think, they didn't expect to go past one season...

Zombieland trailer

In October, there's going to be another zombie comedy. This one's called Zombieland.

Honestly, I already said everything I need to say. They won't let me embed the trailer, so go see it here. NOW!

There's a Comic Con discussion panel on it over at Geeks of Doom, too.

Sam Raimi Directing World of Warcraft Movie

WOW. And WoW.

From Geeks of Doom:
Harry over at Ain’t It Cool News has himself a scoop of epic proportions: Sam Raimi will direct the feature film adaptation of the virtual cult online multiplayer phenomenon that is World of Warcraft. Mr. Knowles not only sounds confident in this huge news, he sounds downright positive, and expects the trades to announce it within a week or so....

I'm totally out of the World of Warcraft scene, but this is HUGE news! A Raimi movie based in that setting could be loads of fun.

Board games based on movies

I just read a blog entry on Flavorwire on a great topic, board games based on movies, and how they often suck. Just like movies based on video games...

Sometimes, of course, they don't suck. Sometimes somebody cares, and makes a really GOOD game to go along with a really good license. Fantasy Flight does a great job with licensed IPs, and because I interviewed one of their designers, and because they made the Battlestar Galactica board game I really like, and because in my former life I worked on The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online, this is an interesting topic for me.

However, what really got me excited about this blog entry was ZOMBIES. Bloggers, if your content is rich in zombie references, you will rise to the top of the geek SEO pile. Within their list of good board games based on movies was my all-time favorite movie...Dawn of the Dead (the original, though the remake wasn't bad). Are you kidding me? There's a Dawn of the Dead board game and I didn't even know it? And it's GOOD?

This classic ’70s game proves that sometimes the best things in life involve nothing more than a maps and some pieces of cardboard — things like pretending to be a murderous zombie terrorizing humans in a mall. Ah, sweet childhood.

Wait, this gets better...

you can download it free.

Oh yeah. This day just got off to a great start. Not to mention, the large Dunkin Donuts coffee on my right, and the NOS my "friend" Justin just dropped off to my left. Hang on, this could get rocky...

The Hunt for Gollum

I mentioned this a while back, that there was a really great fan film in the works covering the part of the Lord of the Rings story where Aragorn pursues Gollum, before the events of the Fellowship of the Ring film occur.

I just finished watching it, and it was quite good. There were scenes that were distractingly parallel to Fellowship scenes, but overall, a very nice job and well worth watching.

I do recommend you go watch it full-screen.
