Doctor Who K9 Slippers (via Shut Up and Take My Money)

I'd love to hear what you think of the Internet's greatest moments in this week's "Geek Bits."


10. Vic’s Review – “Candyman” (1992) (via Vic's Movie Den)

A great review of one of the classics of black horror.

GOTHAM Gets the Trailer It Deserves (via He Geek She Geek)
...but not the one it needs right now.

8. Second 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Trailer Rocks (via Never Mind Pop Film)
Humans look like real jerks.

7. Why Miles Morales Needs to be in a Marvel Movie (via Nerds of Color)

Long overdue

6. Wednesday Versus: LUTHOR VS JAMES BOND (via Geek Soul Brother)

3. Fantastic Four Director Tim Story Explains How Summer Movies Go Wrong (via io9)

"With those types of big movies, you're directing three movies. There's the movie you're shooting, there's the second-unit action stuff, and there's the visual effects movie. You've got to learn how to deal with all of them...

"The other thing I learned from those two Fantastic Four movies, is that sometimes you can be too lax on how much control you give to the visual effects team, or the production design team, or whoever. If you end up in situations and you're not happy with certain things, it's because you didn't stay on top of them"

I can tell from interviews I've done that the special effects team drove the design of Galactus.

2. Death Star Dress (via The Mary Sue)

This Death Star gown is fully armed and operational. By which I mean it has arms. And it’s… operational. Oh, shush. (Badlands Garrison via Geeks Are Sexy)

1. Everything shatters in Marvel poster for S.H.I.E.L.D.'s finale (via Blastr)



Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Ragtag" (01x21) Recommended

Synopsis: "In the last episode before the epic season finale, Ward 's betrayal and HYDRA's shocking secrets are revealed as Coulson's team goes undercover on a mission that leaves no one unscathed, on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
This episode blew my mind in a lot of ways as we finally learn more about Ward's past and his connection to Garrett. It's crazy what that guy put him through. Coulson and May get some great scenes as techs infiltrating the Hydra tech facility and we learn Garrett is the original Deathlok! What a twist. The real shock is the revelation of Skye's parents. What did you think of the episode?

Arrow "Streets of Fire" (02x22)

Synopsis: "MALCOLM MERLYN RETURNS — Oliver (Stephen Amell) rallies his team as Slade’s (Manu Bennett) soldiers attack the city. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) gets a call from S.T.A.R. Labs with game-changing news and Thea (Willa Holland) comes face-to-face with her father – Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman)."
Another great episode as it leads to the season finale next week. Oliver goes through another life-changing experience as he comes to terms with the importance and risks of teamwork. Brother Blood gets some characterization and Thea confronts her father in an emotionally powerful scene. It's great to see Glau kick some serious tail as the new supervillain that doesn't have a name, but is probably "Ravager." Diggle gets some great scenes. What did you think of the episode?


The Amazing Spider-Man (2013) Not Recommended
You've already read my review on Monday calling it worse than Spider-Man 3, but here are a few reviews from around the blogosphere

  1. Arrow seems to be channeling The Dark Knight Rises for this season 2 finale. Who do you think Slade is going to kill: Thea, Laurel, or Sarah?

  2. It really is Pat. Especially with the League of Shadows. I would guess Sara since she's only been on the show one season and her death could motivate Laurel to become Black Canary. What about you?
    -------- Original message --------

  3. gotham looks interesting.... so many things coming. my wife and i have been re enjoying the sarah connor chronicles... sad it ended so quick, love me some summer time fun.

  4. Man, Arrow blows me away every week! Please destroy the city each episode because this has been awesome.

    The only minor nitpick is that Ollie is seeming largely impotent ever since Slade showed up. Every time they say "we're taking the fight to him!" they really don't lol. "Ollie, you have allies!" yes, allies that are largely inconsequential as it turns out. Oh well, I guess someone besides Oliver needs to be beaten up to round-out the ass-whoopings...

  5. Sarah would make sense. I'm hoping for Laurel as she's been pretty useless this season.

  6. Great links as usual! Thanks for the Godzilla shout out.
    Gotham has the look, I hope it is half as good as Arrow.
    I agree the about the humans, especially Gary Oldman's character. If only we could let them live in peace!

  7. That dress might be just a little over the top. haha

  8. If Gotham is half as good it'll be awesome! The first movie did the same thing with the apes. All the humans were cruel or clueless. No justice no peace! Right!

  9. Yeah, he's surrounded by hanger ins like Jay-Z. At least Felicity has computer skills but they need to leverage Diggle's military training more. Who do you think is the most useless member of the team?

  10. Yeah, it had a good time and Glau shined in that series.
