This is what Awesome looks like

I never thought an album cover would get me to buy a CD, but then I saw soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy. Available now for pre-order at Amazon, it features Hooked on a Feeling, Spirit in the Sky, plus some Bowie, Jackson 5, and a lot more. Track listing at The Playlist.

Ranking the Marvel Universe

It's been a while since I posted, and since I've missed out on reviewing the last couple of entries into the Marvel Universe, I figured I'd do what everyone else is doing and rank the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, based on the incredibly objective scale that is my own personal preferences.

Star Wars VII cast announced

Good morning and here's your cast for Star Wars Episode VII a few days earlier than rumored, via press release from starwars.com.
The Star Wars team is thrilled to announce the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film. 
Director J.J. Abrams says, “We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.” 
Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.
So this is exciting, and probably means Andy Serkis wins some sort of prize. No information on who the new characters are, but this can be your excuse to see the excellent Attack the Block

The Guardians are here

Can we just take a moment to talk about how awesome the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer looks? Rocket Racoon's rap-sheet: 13 counts of theft, 14 counts of escape from incarceration, 7 counts of mercenary activity, 15 counts of arson. Star-lord has a walkman. Chris Pratt (star of The LEGO Movie, the best thing I've seen this year) looks perfectly cast. Zoe Saldana is green (which is hotter than blue) and wielding a huge sword (which is always hot). Basically, Marvel's riskiest gamble to date looks like it's going to pay off.
