The List

The Final Answer: Vampires Vs. Werewolves

We've seen it in films like the recently released Underworld: Awakening, we've watched it happen in the Twilight trilogy and now the war over which is better, vampires or werewolves, is going to be waged right here on Attack of the Blog. This nerdy conflict has been going on longer than the actual war between vampires and lycans and today, we're going to settle it! Two children of the night will enter the metaphorical ring, but only one will leave alive undead.

TEAM WEREWOLF:
So, you're going with vampires?

TEAM VAMPIRE:
Yep. It’s not even really a contest. Sure, werewolves are vicious and feral, but they have to do all their work on four legs, and can be undone by a simple silver bullet. Mythos varies on how to dispose of vampires, but at the very least it involves cutting their heads off and lighting them on fire. And even that hasn’t been proven to work. (See: Vampire Lestat, The) Also, vampires are sartorially splendid, and just sexier on the whole. In fact, they raise the general appeal of being undead, which is a miracle, considering they exist in the same class as zombies.

Santa Academy

Whoever said that mall Santas were just drunk fat guys looking for a quick buck during the Holidays?

These guys are rigorously put through the ringer in a program from which they will emerge as lean, mean, sleigh-riding machines that calculatingly plow through their naughty/nice lists like gift-bearing Terminators.

If we were to quantify this list, then by a significant margin, "The Shopping Dead" are the dominant Holiday shopping species. However, to say they even know they're searching for gifts is giving a bit too much credit.

Star Wars Holiday Cards

How adorable is this Star Wars themed holiday card? Drawn by Lovesick Robots Studios, these cards are available in a pack of 10 for only $10 on Etsy. Except the pessimist in me would be scared to have this season's greeting come true. We all know what would happen if they did find the droids they were looking for. Bye bye, Rebellion.

The Amazing Spider-Man: First Look At The Lizard?

Next Summer's franchise reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man has been making efforts to keep the look of the film's villain under wraps for some time, now. However, the proverbial reptile may have been let out of its cage, thanks to a leaked photo of some swag.

Yogurt of Spaceballs might have said that merchandising is "where the real momney from the movie is made," but it appears it may have also unwittingly given us our first look at Rhys Ifans as Doctor Curt Connors as he is transformed into the A-list Spider-Man villain, The Lizard!

The swag? A pair of Pez Dispensers which were found by Jared Campbell, showing up on ComicBookMovie.

Is this the villain we're getting? Or is this some bizarre foreign knockoff?

Celebrate 11/9! The Day of Awesome!

Celebrate 11/9! The Day of Awesome!

Every yin needs its yang to keep the universe in balance. As we have just reverentially celebrated the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, a somber, soul-searching occasion, it occurs to me that the world needs a super happy celebration of all the awesome things on Earth day to make up the difference. A sort of relentlessly positive occasion during which we revel in being alive and take stock of all of the things in life that cause us joy.

I call it 11/9, which is super convenient, because that happens to be today!

So, I took a quick straw poll around the G4 Interactive offices to see what people were going to celebrate on 11/9, the day of awesome, and this is what I came up with. Also, one of my favorite things is making up nicknames and job titles for people, so I'm going to be doing that here.

James "The 1%" Elkin - Master of X-Play Online - I like ice cream and apple pie, and air conditioning just ‘cause. I like photos of puppies in marine helmets, and cats driving tanks. I like Rocky and Rambo, and the parts of Team America that don’t seem French. I like Bourbon and branch, and shotgun serenades.  I like this Marlboro I’m lighting.  I like this photo:
