Alien Raiders

Tony Almeda is in this film, sans his soul patch! Isn’t that enough to warrant renting this film to begin with?

A group of “criminals” take a grocery store hostage, looking for “something” that they’ve traced to that location. Of course, as with every siege in cinematic history, stuff goes wrong, the cops show up, there is a hostage negotiator who develops a rapport with the lead crook, etc. etc. Still, sporting a pretty decent cast, including Tony Almeda (do you even care what his real name is?), Mathew St. Patrick (from War and Six Feet Under), and Rockmond Dunbar (C-Note from Prison Break), the acting is better than the acting in any film named Alien Raiders should be. Seriously, they couldn’t come up with a better name than that? I guess all the good titles with the words “alien” or “space” in them were already taken.

Red Mist (aka Freakdog)

I’m going to start about by saying I like just about every actor in this film.  I’ve liked Arielle Kebbel since seeing her in Reeker and American Pie: Band Camp. Sarah Carter was just about the only thing I liked in DOA: Dead or Alive.  MyAnna Buring from The Descent, Martin Compston (Doomsday), and Andrew Lee Potts (Primeval and Return to House on Haunted Hill) round out a cast of pretty talented folks.  In addition, Shrooms, the previous film from director Paddy Breathnach, was in my top 10 list of 2008 films.  So I was really looking forward to this film.

Fairy Quest

Back in December 2006, probably my favorite living comic book artist, Humberto Ramos, announced a project that he and Paul Jenkins (one of my favorite comic writers) were working on together called Fairy Quest.  Now, like I said, I’m a HUGE fan of both of these guys, and absolutely have loved everything they’ve done together – a run on Peter Parker: Spider-Man, starting up Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 2, and finally, and most importantly, Revelations.

Th3rd World Studios

Somewhere out of the blue the other day, I came across Th3rd World Studios, an independent comic book publisher started in 2006 that, to be honest with you, I had never heard of.

Checking out their website, it looks to me like they have some great comics.  Here’s just a sampling of some of their titles:

King of the Hill

I don’t know…maybe it’s just me, but I’d never think to call 911 if I didn’t know where I was. I mean, if it’s from a land line, no biggie, but from a cell phone? That just seems pointless. Yet it happens so often in movies.

Oh well, I digress…by the way, MILD SPOILERS for anyone still planning on seeing this flick.

Why the hell haven’t I read about this somehere? TMNT 25!!!!

Seriously?  The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles turn 25 this year.  Why the hell haven’t they made a bigger deal about…

Turtles Turn 25!

Seriously?  The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles turn 25 this year.  Why the hell haven’t they made a bigger deal about this?  I mean…the Turtles are a phenomenon!  Well, were.  I still think their current cartoon is pretty popular.  Check out www.tmnt25.com for all the latest news on the upcoming planned events for the Turtles’ anniversary.

The one thing I’m looking forward to the most is the TMNT Road Trip, where the Turtles (yes, the real ones…duh) travel the country in their party van and do performances!  Heh…just like in the latest movie where Michaelangelo performs at kids’ birthday parties.  The tour starts at the end of April in New York and ends in July in San Diego.  Sadly, it’s not coming anywhere near Virginia, but in June it’s coming to Dallas, Texas!  I’m going to make Aron go to it.
