  1. After this pasts weeks Altered Geek it be cool to hear you guy’s favorite movies as well.

  2. The latest X-Men DOFP trailer has really sold me on the movie. The look of the Sentials was weird to me but seeing them in action made it make more sense. Did you guys ever have something like that? When photos or images of the look of a character turned you off at first but when you saw it in action you didn’t mind it.

    1. I hated the look of X-Men First CLass’s uniforms but they ended up being okay as well. Jury is still out on the Sentianals a

    2. I’m really hoping the new Turtles will be that way after seeing the glimpse of them in the trailer.

  3. I don’t know about Channing Tatum being Gambit. Can he do the accent? I don’t see it. He is more Superman or Cyclops than Gambit.

    1. He as Cyclops I could see. That is not a bad idea. If they go Age of Apocalypse in the next movie and Cyclops is bad that could really work.

  4. I wouldn’t call The Longer Ranger the worst movie of 2013. Die Hard 5, Movie 43, Hansel & Gretel : Witch Hunters, and the Old Boy remake are much worse in my book. The Longer Ranger was bad of course. I didn’t hate it though. Parts of it are batshit insane, like the eating of the heart that comes out of nowhere, parts of it though were highly entertaining like the last 20 minute action sequence.

    1. I don’t believe we said it was the worst movie of the year, it was one of the, if not the biggest box office flop of the year and we did say it was regarded by many as the worst movie of the year, both of these are facts. In fact when Dan and I did our year in review of 2013, neither of us had this as the worst film, we did however list Die Hard and Movie 43…

      1. Oh no I didn’t think you were calling it the worst movie. Just that in the beginning you said people were calling it that.

        1. I would call it the worse movie of the year. Over budgeted nonsense that gives nothing in return with a cherry of racism to top it off.

  5. Yes I am very much looking forward to gone girl, mainly because its Fincher. The trailer was the typical first trailer for a Fincher movie. More music than actual dialog and plot details.

    Also I believe Dom Hemigiway is still on VOD and if you are going to watch The Raid 2 you’ll want to watch The Raid: Redemption first. It picks up only hours after the first one ends.

      1. I thought Dom Hemingway was very fun, but does get tiring by the end.

  6. The only other character I could see showing up in the new Star Wars is Lando Calrissian. Billy Dee Williams wouldn’t mind the work I am sure about that. Other than that I hope they try more on creating new characters than forcing in old ones.

  7. If you are going to bring back a Star Wars character, I know it is an obvious choice, still how could it not be Bobba Fett. I know people call him overrated but in the EU he has some kickass stories. He’s even cooler than the movies show him to be.

    1. I never understood the Fett fandom. The coolest thing he did in Star Wars was die.

      Let’s hope they bring but the Ewolks! Or better Jar Jar Binks! J/K

      Honestly bring back Yoda somehow. A kickass Yoda ghost? I’d sign up for that.

      1. Maybe J.J. Abrams could call in Spock. He apparently likes to do that in his movies.

        Yoda would be cool or Admiral Ackbar. Just to say his famous line.

      2. Fett looks cool so people love him. Plus he has a jet pack. That always helps.

      3. Have you read any of the novels or anything about him or are you just basing that statement from the movies?

  8. I’d like to see a scene with Gredo’s son Gredo Jr. He walks into a room and Han Solo shoots him for no particular reason except to solve the classic question of who shot first.

  9. I am going to go the opposite direction and say don’t add any more old characters. Make these movies their own. Do not get too caught up with the past like the new Trek and the Prequels did.

      1. The over indulgence on the droids, the use of the original Yoda puppet in Episode One even though it looked lifeless, making Jango Fett into a larger part than he should have been just because people love his son, unneeded cameos from characters like Chewbacca. Need I go on?

    1. yeah like @optimussolo:disqus asked… HOW did they….. and I thought that was the point of the prequels to give us the dirty details of how Anakin turned to the dark side!!!!

    1. LOL Lando is kinda old these days… BDW has done some awesome work though after Star Wars!!! LOVED him in several guest spots. Every time I see him show up I’m like hey Lando!!!!

      1. Yeah I know, but it would be good to see if the chemistry was still there between him and harrison ford

        1. I’m sure it would be. I know this is gonna sound weird, and I’m sure @optimussolo:disqus will make fun of me for it, but BDW was the mysterious janitor on General Hospital Night Shift… a sub series of the regular GH a few years back. LOVED him in that.

          Also loved him in the episode of White Collar he guested on. He was a former criminal, wanted to do the right thing.
