The Legend of Korra returns to television!


It appears that Nickelodeon has once again changed it's mind regarding the outlet in which they want to release their hit show The Legend of Korra. Starting Friday, November 28, 2014, The Legend of Korra will be premiering Book 4 from the beginning on the channel Nick Toons!

The first half of the season for Book 4 has aired on Nick.com and the Nick app and it appears that new episodes will continue to be released on schedule at these locations. However, if you want to rewatch the season on television this is your chance. Nick Toons will start from the beginning of Book 4 and will run through its entirety.

This has been a very confusing time for Korra fans trying to keep track of when the show will be airing and where. This newest change, although a welcomed one by many, does not make things any less confusing.

In the end let's all celebrate that Korra will be back on television where she belongs!

The Legend of Korra premieres on Nick Toons this Friday, November 28, 2014 at 9pm ET.

First trailer for Pan is released! Find out the origin to Peter Pan's story!

The first trailer has been released for director Joe Wright's Peter Pan inspired film, Pan!

I have to admit that I really did not know what to expect from this film but the trailer looks pretty interesting. Yes, it's an origin story for Peter Pan but it still has some very interesting ideas and concepts shared in this trailer. The one thing that I am still not sold on is actor Hugh Jackman as the pirate Blackbeard. I don't know why but I am not liking his look all that much.
"Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, the action adventure follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny—to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.  
The film stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) as Hook; Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) as Tiger Lily; Adeel Akhtar (“The Dictator”) as Smee; and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter."
Pan is set to be released in theaters on July 17, 2015.

Super Power Beat Down - Batman vs Darth Vader!

The newest episode of Super Power Beat Down features a brutal brawl between Batman and Darth Vader! This is by far one of the best, if not the best, episodes that they have released.

The victor of this fight was determined by more than a 1/4 million fans who voted on the SPBD website. In previous appearances on SPBD Batman defeated Deadpool but fell at the hands of Wolverine. Darth Vader on the other hand won his only other appearance on the show against Gandalf from the The Lord of the Rings franchise.

In this episode Batman races to the Death Star to save an ally, but finds Darth Vader standing between him and his mission. Find out who walks away from this fight as the winner and let me know if you agree with the outcome.

The park is open! Watch the trailer for Jurassic World!

Universal Pictures has released the trailer for Jurassic World earlier than they had announced and it is absolutely amazing! Until now I have been cautiously optimistic about this film but this trailer has sold me. I don't want to spoil the trailer so I'll just say that seeing a fully functioning dinosaur park, Jurassic World, and seeing both new and old dinosaurs running around had me bouncing in my seat. I'm also excited to see what Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard bring to this film.

Jurassic World opens its doors to the public on June 12, 2015.

Final Fantasy IX - Black Mage Village acapella!

The String Player Gamer has released some great acapella video and in this one he tackles a video game theme that might not jump out to gamers at first. Listen in as he sings the "Black Mage Village" theme from Final Fantasy IX.
"Black Mage Village is one of those tracks that take a little time to grow on you, but once it has, you're stuck with it forever! This is one of my most favorite Final Fantasy 9 tracks, and in my opinion a great way to kickoff Final Fantasy 9 month!"
