Ready for take-off.

Posted in General on June 27, 2008 by Vincent Kremer

After lots of sweating and stressing everything is prepared for vacation , all work is delivered , house is cleansed , photo camera recharged and mp3 player fully loaded. Norway here I come!

Luckily I have some spare time to write one last entry before I vanish for 3 weeks , so what’s up? Well let’s start off with the movie stuff that hit the interwebs shall we?

With my staying in Norway for 3 weeks I won’t be able see the The Dark Knight   debut , so that will have to wait till I get back and I will have to avoid anything Batman related to prevent spoilers or people and internet that will spoil it.

Also , haven’t you heard or seen it yet The Dark Knight is loaded with viral ads like TheHaHaHa Times which is the Joker’s own parody to the original Gotham Times and next to that we have Harvey Dent’s campaign called We Are The Answer and I Believe In Harvey Dent.
And ofcourse you have the 10 different but almost the same superbowl, TV spots and trailers clips to gaze upon.

Next on is the film The Green Hornet which will be in theaters 2010, the film based upon the mased crime detective will be written and starred by Seth Rogan.
The guy that wrote Superbad and Knocked up and the upcoming Pineapple Express , so that should be interesting.

One other movie I really look forwards too is Hellboy 2 which will be in theaters July 11th.
Couple of weeks ago watched the first movie again to freshen up my memory, story and characters, really liking the Aw Crap attitude, they gave him. Anyhow for the people who are just as excited as I am here are two clips to lessen your thirst.

Oh and Wanted debuted today , make sure you don’t miss that , have seen the exclusive clips I’m sure it’s going to be awesome.
And no I haven’t read the comic yet , but I will soon.














Went to see The Incredible Hulk couple of days ago awesome movie and much better than I thought it would be at fist.

I never really was a big Hulk fan but this re-do of the previous Hulk movie changed that, so if you’re planning on going but not sure if it’s worth it , I promise you it is.

Oh and the G.I Joe movie coming in 2009? I honestly don’t know man, never really was into Joe back in the day, but can we trust this guy?

Anyhow! that was it concerning movies , time to switch over to the comics.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve bought a bunch of comics I’m sure I will like and will keep me busy for a while , so these are the books I bought.

Gemini #2!
The first one was original , refreshing and on top of all a lot of fun and I can not stress this enough people , if you already haven’t picked up the first issue yet , get it while it’s still in the press and get the second one while you’re at it. You won’t regret it.







Cable & Deadpool Volume 3: The Human Race
Currently the funniest series I’ve read so far, with Cable’s seriousness and Deadpool’s wacky ways of doing and saying things really makes it a first class comedy series.

The New Invaders : To End All Wars
Bought this one because it had Blazing Skull and Union Jack in it, not much to say about it since I’m not really familiar with the Invaders.







The Watchmen
Finally caught it people , after having to remind myself to get it!
Anyhow , really excited to read this massive graphic novel because of the great reviews it was given.

Kill All Parents #1

The thing that spoke to me most in this one , was the art and its freshness it had, this series also received lots of good reviews and positive input.






And that’s it people , my last entry for 3 weeks, when I come back I will give all of the above movies and comics a review so.. stay tuned and see you in 3 weeks!

Not dead.

Review : Marvel Zombies #1

Posted in Comics, Marvel, Review Archieve with tags , on June 16, 2008 by Vincent Kremer

I started reading this because I thought it could be fun but unfortunely the first issue of Marvel Zombies was a disappointment with a pretty boring start and weak humorous comments and jokes.

The first page shows us a introduction what caused them to turn into zombies which is in my opinion very vague and not so interesting, anyhow like the intro tells us is Magneto the only survivor left after The Fantastic Four went send into an alternate dimension where they are stuck for all freakin’ eternity because Magneto destroyed the Warp Machine to prevent the zombie Flash in the sky force, figuring out he hasn’t much longer to live as well.

So eventually the Marvies meet up with Magneto , Magneto tries to flee but the zombie squad of hunger chases him.
With Zombie Colonel America (who is for some reason Colonel in the zombie universe ) on his tail he grabs his shield and magusfies it through the head of Captain America who crashes onto the ground where he finds Spider-man with a broken leg.

With America on the ground he takes the change to flee and stops some blocks further, however Hawkeye Zombie awaits him there and shoots Magneto , but Magneto is one bit faster and decapitates Hawkeye with America’s shield, Just like that.

Magneto has the upperhand this time , until he was caught off-guard by Zombie Wasp and bites a chunk out of his neck, seeing that Wasp is having dinner the other zombies start to whine the would like to have a piece as well and that she should save something for the rest of the zombie crew.

Zombie Thor and Hulk don’t waste time and both grab magneto, with the Hulk grabbing his leg and rips it off like it’s made out of playdough.
And because Zombies apparently are whiny bitches , Giant Zombie Antman whines about that the hulk has his whole leg and suggest for a share with Hulkazombie only replying with “okay” , which is weird because The Hulk never shares food.

Agreed on the share they all feast on Magneto’s corpse if it’s an all you can eat sparerib restaurant.

When done feasting upon the flesh of the fallen they all sit down to talk about how their zombie stomachs aren’t working like it’s suppose , and ofcourse zombies are bitchy and whiny creatures Zombie Spidey turns all emo because just now he asks himself why he ate his aunt and his wife and asks god to die. * sigh * Zombies.

They continue their zombie-wise chatting about a bone sticking out of Bruce’s stomach because he changed back to Bruce after eating , causing also his stomach to schrink and not creating enough room for the bones of foodyfied Magneto.

However they got interubted because Zombie Luke Cage sees something in the sky , which is no other than… * drum roll*

Yep, Silver Surfer and with the show-up with the silver fellow ends this issue.

My slice of cheese

Like I mentioned above I started reading the zombie series because I thought zombies could be fun, if used correctly and in a good way. However the first issue wasn’t that interesting story or humor wise because it didn’t feel like an actual marvel comic , instead it felt like a bad fanfic with a weak attempt of humorous jokes, another thing this issueis lacking.

However i’m not judging this series yet since this was only the first issue and it would be unfair to judge it only by it’s pilot , so yeah. Stay tuned for the next review.
