I've got nothing today. Get out there and enjoy your day.
Man, there are a lot of internet traditions for Thursdays, aren't there?
And Thong Thursday:
Who could forget Random Space Porn Thursday
And lastly, there's
"Watch a Cinemasins vid of a movie that starts with the letter 'T' Thursday"
Your Video of the Day:
Mile High Island asked us to give our thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy.
Props again to Vicky, Doug and Ryan at Escape Velocity for letting us film there.
And Thanks to Mile High Island for asking us to do a review with him.
Watch the video to hear what we had to say and keep your eye out for dear friends of ihatepeacocks, Rio aka LairOfWonders and Comic Shop Vicky!
Speaking of Comic Based Movies, some Deadpool movie test footage has found its way onto the interwebs. I personally am sick of Deadpool in the comics. He's not a bad character, just over used by Marvel. But after seeing this footage, with voice work from Ryan Reynolds, I gotta tell you, I'd pay to see this movie:
Well, our video review of GOTG isn't up yet, so today, here is a random smathering of stuff that hopefully will capture your interest. Or at least kill a few minutes.
On this day in History:
Below is the first look at Season 2 of True Detective! Click here to read more about the casting choices for the second season of True Detective.
You know, the Aliens from the Alien franchise aren't actually called "Xenomorphs".
While I have know this since 1986, not every one agrees.
(Random people on the internet don't agree on something? Big surprise there.)
Anyway, click the pic to read a rather in depth article on the subject:

I've got to tell you. I was really impressed with Guardians of the Galaxy. I didn't think I was going to like it. Hell, let's be honest. When I heard it was being made,
I flat out said it would suck. Well, I am here to tell you that I was wrong.
This movie is great! It was entertaining, funny, action packed, not too serious or moody and all around fun.
The Entire Cast (yes, even Vin Disel) were fantastic. The story/plot was simple, but not stupid. It certainly was grittier than most of the Marvel Movies but done in a way where it never got too serious or full of itself.
Chris Pratt as 'Star Lord' was awesome:
Zoe Saldana continues her quest to become the Queen of SciFi.
And with her portrayal of 'Gamora', she deserves to be Queen.
She is great in this movie. Her character holds her own against a male dominated cast.
(Karen Gillan was good as Nebula, reminded me of Ventress from The Clone Wars)
I think this is her best SciFi role to date when compared to her Tribal Smurf character in Avatar and Uhura in Star Trek.
And while there is a "Sexy Side Boob" getting dressed scene in the trailer, it was cut from the final screen version. Which is probably a good thing because it would have changed the dynamic of her character and made it feel cliche.
I could rant and rave some more, but tomorrow we're going to post a video review we did with Mile High Island along with some pics from our time at Escape Velocity's GOTG festivities this past Saturday. So I'm not going to say anymore on the subject for now.
