Wonder Woman 8-Bit Trailer Mock-Up

A YouTube channel by the name of JoBlo videos has uploaded a trailer of what they believe an 8-bit tie in game for the soon-to-be released Wonder Woman film. Anyone who has actually played an 8 bit system can immediately tell that the envisioned game would be far more than any of them could handle. While the Sega Master System was able to pull off some decent looking graphics by the end of its life-cycle, I don’t think even that system would be able to achieve the fluid and quick gameplay shown in the trailer without sprite-flickering to the point of unplayability.… Read the rest

Contra to see a Live Action Movie Release

It was released in Wednesday that the class NES side-scrolling platform shooter would be made into a live action movie – in China. The film was given the green light by the Chinese Film Bureau and of course the setting of the game has been taken from the original south pacific island (off the coast of New Zealand) so some remote island in the South China Sea. A teaser for the film was even released; …which tells us roughly one-tenth of sweet fuck all about the actual film. Though to be fair, it’s kind of refreshing to see a trailer that doesn’t give away the entire film in 90 seconds or less.… Read the rest

Movie Remakes I’d Like to See: Weird Science

Released in the summer of 1985, Weird Science took movie goers on a rollercoaster ride of a film with two bumbling nerds who create a woman on their computer who is brought to life by a well-placed bolt of lightning. You might be interested to know that the film was based on a one-off comic titled “Made of the Future” which appeared in a 1950’s EC Comics magazine called, you guessed it, Weird Science. Gary, played by Anthony Michael Hall who was well known at the time for playing the ‘awkward teenage boy’ character, absolutely steals the show with his tenacity, while his shy friend Wyatt, played by Ilan Mitchell-Smith, lays a solid foundation to the pair’s act.… Read the rest

Games Based on Movies that Don’t Exist: James Bond – The Duel

James Bond : The Duel was released on the Sega Genesis and its 8bit relative, the Master System in 1993 by Domark, which no longer exists as a game creator. Domark actually produced a long list of games before being swallowed by Edios software, with Klax and Desert Strike being among their more notable releases. They also produced video game adaptations of A View to a Kill, 007: License to Kill, The Spy who Loved Me and The Living Daylights, so it’s probably safe to say that they know their shit when it comes to James Bond video games. The game stars Timothy Dalton in his last ever role as 007.… Read the rest

Movie Remakes I’d Like to See: Flight of the Navigator

Compliance! Flight of the Navigator captured the hearts of a generation. The tale of a boy pushed forward through time due to a miscalculation of an alien spacecraft and its computerized on-board navigation system was, for many, the movie of 1986. Almost any child of the 80’s will have memories of this film. 1986 was quite a while ago. The actor who played David, Joey Cramer, is now 41 years old. Forty-fucking-one. Feel old yet? I know I do. Or at least my liver does. At any rate, I would say that this movie is well overdue for a remake. Since Flight of the Navigator was released, both the Spider-Man and Superman film franchises have been remade three fucking times.… Read the rest

Big Trouble in Little China to be Remade?

With Dwayne can-you-smell-what-the-rock-is-cooking Johnson taking the leading role of Jack Burton? Well, ‘leading role’ in the loosest sense here; Jack Burton wasn’t the hero of the film as he just kind of stumbled through it looking for a truck and came out the other end in one piece. God damn I love that movie. Big Trouble in Little China was a video store classic back when we would spend our hard earned allowance at an actual shop that rented out physical copies of movies on VHS and browse the drama section because is was right next to the room with the porno films and we would always try to get a sneak peek at some major boobage while the lady behind the counter rolled her eyes.… Read the rest
