Men In Black Reboot:

This week rumors started circulating the web that Sony are working on rebooting the Men In Black franchise without Will Smith; which would be the next series after Ghostbusters to be redone by Sony.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter and others, the franchise’s producers were asked about upcoming projects, including their hopes for more Men in Black. And the answer was quite positive, though they offered few concrete details.

“We’re in the middle of [talks],” Walter Parkes said when asked if he and Laurie MacDonald were discussing a potential revival of Men in Black at Sony. “It’s very active.”

Jordan and Dale discus their opinions on these plans – with some talk on the franchise as a whole from the brilliant first film to 2012’s Men in Black 3.

Angry Birds Movie:

In this section we chat about the first teaser for the upcoming Angry Birds film – that showcased the loveable birds in their animated journey.

It’s no secret that Rovio has been having some trouble, but it’s easy to imagine that a lot of kids will want to see this. That’s not because The Angry Birds Movie looks good (it doesn’t), just because it’s about Angry Birds, which is still quite the phenomenon. So here you go, parents (and, I guess, Angry Bird fans): this is what you’re in for next May.

– The Verge

We talk about the new take on these little fellas including the crazy Anger Management club called “The Angry Birds” and the immense voice cast featuring Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage.

Blade:

Earlier this week Wesley Snipes in an interview stated that he and Marvel have been in talks, about potentially brining Blade into the MCU via his own reboot.

That would focus on a new Vampire Slayer called Fallon Grey who is currently being introduced into the comics – Jordan and Dale talk about their opinions on such a reboot with a brief retrospective.

What is your opinion? Please let us know.

In this section we discuss a rumor that came out 2 weeks ago which stated the 2017 Christopher Nolan flick would be an anime adaptation of Akira – which has a big cult following in the west.

Since the 90’s Warner Bros. have been waiting to provide a live-action Akira movie for the general audience, which would basically be Mad Max meets Judge Dredd.

Any anime fans listening?

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  30. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  31. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    You’re a star, thanks for taking the trouble to put this up and lots of useful comments- page favourited. The manual is diabolical and I’d had lots of trouble finding how to get the unit to put turn signals up over the display screen I was looking at.I have the City maps, and use the Garmin Connect planner, which in my view is pretty good, and uploads straight into the unit.Needless to say, I sync the Edge with Strava when I get home to see how bad I still am compared to everyone else!Nice cars by the way- S3 XJ is one of my favourites, and in that colour combo!
