Find out in this week's top ten geek bits.
10. Captain America Teaser Poster
Bubbawheat asks a good question.
@Thegeektwins @CaptainAmerica so vibranium isn't scratch resistant?
— Bubbawheat (@Bubbawheat) July 9, 2013
Which begs the question: Is Vibranium scratch resistant? We'll have to wait till the movie comes out to see, but according to the Marvel Wiki, "This shield is composed of a unique alloy of Vibranium, Adamantium, and an unknown third component. It is virtually indestructible." So, it's not technically Adamantium which is "unbreakable."
So, what do you think? Why is the shield scratched?

7. Agent Carter short Film in Iron Man 2 Extras
He Geek She Geek
I absolutely love the B-Movie hilarity of SyFy channel movies and this one looks brilliantly stupid.
Here's the insane plot: "When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. And when the high-speed winds form tornadoes in the desert, nature’s deadliest killer rules water, land, and air." Starring: Tara Reid, Ian Ziering, John Heard, Cassie Scerbo, Jaason Simmons
I was laughing so hard at the trailer I missed it last night! I'll watch it and post a review next week. Here's the trailer:

As exciting as this is, T.S. makes a good point.
@Thegeektwins Oh, so the show's going to get cancelled after all... haha

Sad, but true.

3. Star Wars Bulldogs
Pat's advice and add bulldogs to the site.
2. Snowpiercer Trailer and Featurette
In the most anticipated movie I'll probably never see is the Korean film Snowpiercer.
I wrote a whole in-depth analysis of Snowpiercer for my other blog Film Sketchr, but here's the basic plot: "Snowpiercer is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews."
Here's the trailer and Eli Reyes, from Geek Tyrant, knows Korean and is able to translate the featurettes.
1. Pacific Rim Reviews
Rotten Tomatoes has the movie at a 75% rating and Here's what 11 mainstream critics think of Del Toro's Pacific Rim via Blastr. I'll summarize: it's awesome, but not too deep.
Are you going his weekend?
Do No Harm (4/5 stars)
"Me Likey" - Ian must pose as Dr. Jason Cole at a hospital fundraiser in order to get closer to Olivia.
It turns out NBC is airing the remaining episodes of this "Jekyll and Hyde" show and I couldn't be happier. My favorite part of the show is the dynamic between Ian Price (Steven Pasquale) and Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale). They're always playing tricks on each other and lying to each other while trying to work together. Ian agrees not to go to strip clubs and goes to a bar and gets in a fight. The guy he beat up is in the hospital and ends up being treated by Jason. It's brilliant stuff. They finally resolved the storyline wth his ex-girlfriend Olivia in this episode and its inspired. Jason tries to get him to give a speech and it almost goes horribly wrong. But then it turns out Jason wasn't lying when he said he'd give him Olivia. She's not scared of Ian, but afraid of the person she becomes when she's around him. I do love this show and I'm sorry it was cancelled and banished to the "Saturday Death Zone" of television.
Falling Skies (3.5/5 stars)
"Be Silent and Come Out" - Hal finally reveals his internal struggle to everyone, and it doesn’t bode well for the Masons. Lourdes experiments with a risky new medical procedure. And Charleston’s government sees a massive shift in leadership when a group breaks away on a search and rescue mission. Gloria Reuben guest stars
This is another great episode as Tom (Noah Wyle) has to deal with Hal's (Drew Roy) betrayal and the 2nd Mass struggles to reconcile acting to defend the group and save the man they love. The scene where Hal's trying to talk them out if using the alien Voln tool to get the bug out of him is heat-breaking as he pleads for his life. On the other hand, if they're trying to get me to hate Pope's (Colin Cunningham) character they're doing a great job. Between betting on the death of Hal and Tom and teasing Hal for being freed from the bug, he's becoming more and more unlikeable. Where's freak-baby? Nowhere in this episode.
