    The Rocketeer FINALLY Gets A Blu Ray Release!!

    Last week we got some great news and after months, nay, years of praying one of my very favorite films is getting the Blu Ray treatment it deserves!! For two decades Cliff Secord and the gang have been garnering fans and after all this time this underrated gem has reached the level of cult classic. I’m an admitted die-hard Rocketeer junkie (try typing “The Rocketeer” in our search bar and you’ll find plenty of posts where I’ve either mentioned it or flat out gushed over the film or its fantastic score) and as such Joe Johnston’s serial adaptation of Dave Stevens’ graphic novel has made more trips to the VCR in my childhood than any other film. The previous DVD was…

    Sweet Trailer…'Captain America: The First Avenger'

    It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! Well gang, if you liked the Super Bowl spot for Captain America: The First Avenger and all the sweet images that have been coming down the pike, today you’re in for a treat. This is the OFFICIAL trailer to the film and I have to say that this, looks, GOOOOD! No more words, just enjoy! Maybe it’s just me but I think this has WIN all over it. This is Joe Johnston’s second film focusing on WWII and 1930’s America since he hit a home run with his last comic book adaptation The Rocketeer. Also, this kind of reminds me of how successful…

    Sweet Trailers…'Super Bowl XLV Ads'

    For those of you who saw the Super Bowl you’ll know there were some pretty dope spots for this year’s . This morning I heard a radio announcer say that “in two weeks, a majority of those who watched it will forget the score, but the commercials will live on“. Good point, however I believe the same can be said for a few of most of those Movie Spots. But whether the movie in question will actually be any good (or live up to this hype) is another thing entirely. So whether you missed the Super Bowl and this is your first time them or if you just want to see…

    While You Were Out…1/10 – 1/14

    Well, another week has gone by and again I’ve been tied up beyond belief. On the bright side, work is good, life is good and things are awesome. The down side is that I’ve been neglecting G-S-T as well as everyone else’s awesome blogs (read: my entire blogroll) and that makes me sad. Don’t worry dear friends I’ll get back to my rounds soon. So in case you missed it, here’s what happened this week:

    Off the Shelf…'The Rocketeer'

    For a lot of people out there, the idea of a comic book movie and the reality of one rarely meet in the middle in terms of financial (or fan) success much to the dismay of most audiences.  Countless times, studios have tempted us with intriguing premises for film adaptations of beloved comic book stories but they unfortunately lead to absolutely dismal efforts.  That said some film adaptations actually do well, other surprisingly beat the odds and, in rare cases, a precious few prove to become some of the finest cinema ever made.  Well I wouldn’t put The Rocketeer in that last category, but it is still a damn fun movie and…

    Sweet Trailer…'The Wolfman'

    Now this is a surprise!  Not a word of this movie was uttered between last year’s Comic-Con and now, then all of a sudden we get production photos a few days ago, and then BAM! one very incredible trailer.  For those of you who have seen it I would image we are all impressed with what we were given.  I for one was holding no hope for this film for a variety of reasons, so maybe that’s why I was excited that I thought I would be after watching the trailer.  There’s just something about the quality level of this particular trailer that made me watch it over and over…
