Ultimate Avengers Primer!

With the new Avengers movie coming up around the corner what better way to familiarize yourself with the characters than reading some of the source material! “But Carl where do I begin, the avengers have so many stories? Aren’t the movie versions and comic stories different? With all this Marvel plugging you’re doing lately I’m starting to wonder if they're paying you….Are they paying you?”

The Legend of The Seven Tailed Kaku

It’s Thursday again and we’re finally up to seven. We’re almost at the end of our run on the Nine Tailed Bijuu. Counting from the first Shukaku until now with the Kaku. In the Seven Tailed Kaku is a Bijuu in the form of a badger. It has seven tails and is the smallest Bijuu of the nine, though it is the most cunning and stealthy. Kaku hunts it prey underground  most of the time. It kills by crumbling/destroying the piece of land that is under its target. Making it fall right into her open mouth. Above land, whenever she is around she can transform into any type of creature, but is unable to do it if she doesn’t have clay.

MST3K - Godzilla vs. Megalon

Nothing like starting your Saturday with a full episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The above is to Godzilla Vs. Megalon. Nothing but campy goodness but it is really fun. I love how Jet Jaguar is a complete rip off of Ultraman.

Retro Friday: A Better Tomorrow

Friday is finally here, which means that 1) the long and agonizing work week is coming to an end so your weekend is only a few painstaking hours away, and 2) It’s time for another Retro Friday Action clip!! Now let’s unwind with this scene from the classic film “A Better Tomorrow”.

* Fun Fact: After the release of this movie, teenage boys across Hong Kong started to dress in long dusters to try and emulate Chow’s character despite the climate being sub-tropical. In fact, Trench Coats in colloquial Cantonese are called “Mark Gor Lou” (Literally meaning: Brother Mark’s Coat)!!

The Legend of The Six Tailed Raijuu

It’s Thursday again. We've finally gotten to number six. Which leaves us with three more to go. And so I bring to you the six tailed Bijuu, Raijuu. In reference to Naruto the six tailed Bijuu ended up being a Slug by the name of Saiken. But in actuality Raijuu or Raiju was a six tailed Weasel.

The Raiju is a legendary creature from Japanese mythology but is also separate from the six tailed Raijuu of the nine tailed beast. The “Raiju” of legend has a body composed of lighting or fire and may be in the shape of a cat, tanuki, monkey or weasel. The form of a white and blue wolf is also common. It may also fly by in a ball of lighting or fire which may have tried to explain the ball of lighting hitting the ground and causing fires.

King Joffrey: Prince of Pain

Joffrey Baratheon is one of those characters that can get under your skin. His demeanor is one of privilege and high standing with a hefty degree of inexperience. He is also a play on the idea of herd mentality where a large group of humans will follow anyone they think is powerful and not see the stark reality before them. Joffrey is a puppet that will dance before you until you get so annoyed and frustrated you want to smash him to pieces. Let us take a closer look at the Prince of pain.

Lost Planet 3 Debut Trailer

Get your first look at Capcom’s latest installment in their third-person shooter franchise Lost Planet. The latest is a prequel to the original game, taking place long before the events of the first game. So that means that we're back to playing in an ice-age like environment. Though series creator Kenji Oguro is still the game's director, Capcom has put the responsibility of developing the game externally by Spark Unlimited. So from our first look of the game what we can till is that there are more big guns, more big monsters and even bigger robots!!! What's not to love about this franchise?

More Avenger Goodness!

A quick battle scene from the Avengers. I try to stay away from all the clips but they suck me in like some comic book crackhead and I needs my fix!

The Last Guardian Trailer

Although this trailer is quite old my anticipation is still high! The Last Guardian, the third game from Team Ico is just as wondrous and beautiful as the previous games were in their times! I only hope that it isn't delayed again and it does keep on track to release this year.

Retro Friday: The Battle and Death of Optimus Prime

Welcome back to another Retro Friday. Above are the scenes where Optimus and Megatron fight it out in the Transformers 1986 movie. It still gives me chills and I get a bit misty eyed when Prime turns gray.

Sephiroth: What Makes a Person Evil?

What makes a person evil? Could it be an unforgivable act? Perhaps the loss of a loved
one could set us on the path of destruction. Whatever it may be there is one person who
in my opinion stands above all the rest. His name is Sephiroth (Final Fantasy seven). Now Sephiroth wasn’t always a villain. At one point Sephiroth was a decorated soldier whose skills were second to none. His weapon of choice is a very long katana that can pretty much slice through anything. Is this aspect Sephiroth must be a terror to fight because on top of him being able to wield a blade like a god he’s very intelligent. Being able to play mind games with his opponents he breaks them down mentally leaving them in a state of doubt.

The Legend of The Five Tailed Houkou

Wait what? It’s another Thursday. Well now, I’ve tried my hardest to find more sources to write about the nine Bijuu’s but the more I continue the harder it is to find any sources on the actual creature’s even as I try to refer to creature’s in other mythologies that would at least be similar to those of the Japanese Legend. Every so often Myth’s do travel by word of mouth from culture to culture and sometimes even change to fit the need’s of different culture’s. I would like to say I can understand why the writers of Naruto chased certain aspect’s to the Bijuu’s seeing as how there isn’t much to find on them to begin with.

Hey guys, welcome to the first ever Spin Serpent Short List!

What is the Short list?  The list is simply a few things that just might peak your interest that will be available in the following week. So we decided to take the time to put together a list worth highlighting. Hopefully, the list will help lessen the pain on figuring out what to do this week.

Resident Evil 6 Trailer

Someone once told me Zombies were just a passing fad. And something new would catch our little mind. But no one can get enough Zombie killing. Resident Evil is set to drop Oct 2, 2012. I know a lot of people out their who will be waiting on the midnight release line for this one.

Fear Itself: A Reveiw

When comic companies announce a major crossover event the general consensus is that there will be some major evil to defeat, the heroes may or may not fight each other, and there will be some moral test of one or more of the characters that defines who they are. This tends to be the formula it hasn’t changed much over the years. What has changed is general quality of the writing around the formula.

The Craft of War: Blind

This video has been making the rounds for a few years. It has pretty intense World of Warcraft action through out. The animator created this about two years ago and had it on Vimeo. Percula (animators name) indicated he is in the works to make a part two. Crossing my fingers this will come out soon.

The Legend of The Four Tailed Sokou

And so we’ve reached our fourth Demon God. The Four Tailed Yonbi Sokou. He lives near Mount Fuji and because of the toxic gases and volcanic ash, he transforms into a half chicken and half snake monster (the upper half being that of a chicken and lower half of a snake). Everything around him will wither and die because of his poison. According to the legend whenever he hibernates at Mount Fuji, his snoring will cause the volcano to erupt.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

Seeing as how I’m a huge fan of the resident evil series. It is no surprise that I would pick up the much anticipated Resident Evil Operation Raccoon city. Now when I first heard that this game was coming out I was ecstatic. I’ve played every Resident Evil game and I have had my fair share of disappointments. This goes without saying that
this game would have to be that damn good. Now from the moment I turned on REORC I was hooked. This was a chance to rewrite history in the biohazard world and change the course of the resident evil time line as we know it. The game takes

Total Recall 2012 Trailer

I had my doubts about this movie but the trailer is pretty bad ass. The first one is a masterpiece of violence and cheese but this looks like a decent reboot. I wonder how they will fill it up without mars and three boobed mutants?

Straight from IMDb....

"As the nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai vie for supremacy, a factory worker (Farrell) begins to suspect that he's a spy, though he is unaware which side of the fight he's on."

Bill Nighy as Kuato, yes please!

Game of Thrones: You Win or You Die.

A great recap of season 1. They interview many of the actors and set up many things for season 2. Very worth it. Games of Thrones Season 2 premieres tonight on HBO.
