Which Simpsons character makes a perfect Akira character? What 80s remake is getting a director? Where is the George Lucas Star Wars museum going to be? Why are people scared Marvel's losing the Avengers? How would the Spider-Man kiss scene look if MJ were a dog?
I'd love to hear what you think of the Internet's greatest moments in this week's "Geek Bits."
By the Way...There's a new Geek Twins coming! We're not making a big deal about it, but along with the new look will be some significant changes behind-the-scenes. Stay tuned...

6. ‘WarGames’ Remake Lands Director and Screenwriter (/Film)
Sure, why not drop news of another reboot? The ’80s film WarGames, which originally starred Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy, is being remade by MGM. (The studio has already created a series of other remakes, including RoboCop, Carrie, and Red Dawn, and has Poltergeist and The Town That Dreaded Sundown to come.) Now the studio is poised to hire Dean Israelite to direct and Arash Amel to write the WarGames remake.

I literally screamed out loud when I saw the title...
The Last Ship (2014) (01x01) "Phase Six" [Recommended]
|The Last Ship (2014) (Source)|
This show about a ship stuck in the ocean after a global pandemic is really good, and since both Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are done for the season, there's plenty of time to watch it. Eric Dane does a great job as the Commander Tom Chandler although he lacks a certain gravitas. He would have been better cast as the executive officer. On the other hand, Adam Baldwin rocks as the XO and should have been the captain. Jonathan Mostow does a great job giving it a feeling of isolation and desperation.
