I've been a fan of Luc Besson since The Professional. I love The Fifth Element and I'm even a huge fan of Lockout.
So when I saw the trailer for Lucy and realized I was gonna get Luc Besson and Scarlett Johanssen in a kickass movie, I pretty much clapped for joy.
Which is why I'm sharing the trailer and some pics from the movie after the break.

A little while ago, Sideshow Collectibles sent me their DC Comics Catwoman and I pretty much lost my mind with happy.
I also did my first action figure unboxing and had a delightful time taking bad pictures and squeeing over details. But, as cheesy as I thought I was, the folks at Sideshow seemed to like it because they sent me something else.
Their Wolverine Sixth Scale Figure from The Wolverine.
I'm going to admit that I squeed. I promptly undressed him. I put him in fun poses. We (The GeekBoy and I because I need help with some of this stuff) laughed a lot when we took off his head to take off his tie and his head went rolling. (We're so pro). And I took some (shaky/blurry/sometimes okay) pictures.
But here's the main thing, bad photography aside. This figure blew my mind. The details are just unreal.
In my effort to get him down to his iconic undershirt and pants...
...we had to take off his overcoat, his suit jacket, his tie, and a black shirt -- all of which had the teeniest buttons. Details like having to take his head off and then flip up his collar to get a tie off are just...awesome. Hilarious at my house, but I can't tell you how many times I just sat there...staring at how intricate this was.
In the end, we got him posed up and got the adamatium claws on him (Oh yeah, he comes with, like, a gazillion hands: fists, relaxed, bone claws, adamantium claws)
and posed him on the mantel. He's chillin' there pretty happily.
I think my favorite picture is the one where the sunlight is reflecting off his claws.
If you want to see awesome pictures and, more importantly, get yourself this epic figure, you can get him now from Sideshow for $224.99, which I think is an amazing price for this level of craftsmanship.
Enjoy my hilariously bad photography after the break.

I know I've already proven I love musicals, but I just realized that my love for Timothy Omunson hasn't been put on the blog record, so me doing a happy dance over Galavant may need a little explaining.
Omundson has become one of those actors firmly in the crushworthy but not fan stalker-y column. He's voiced one of my fave companions in SWTOR (Trooper Aric Jorgan), he recently put a spin on Cain in Supernatural in which he kicked all sorts of ass and sported a killer beard and now...
To top it off, he seems like a really nice guy and interacts with his fans on Twitter like a normal person.
I mean, really? How am I supposed to not want this man to have all of the amazing to happen to him?
Not to mention, how can I not love a good musical show that doesn't take itself seriously (::cough:: Glee) and comes from creative minds like Alan Menken and Dan Fogelman? Total no brainer.
Just..yay. Today is good.

I preface this by saying that I haven't read the Hellblazer comics, so maybe this is totally wrong and I don't know it.
But I do know this. I'll watch the hell out of this show. Love this trailer and am so happy to see it on a major network.

I admit, I love Dance Moms and I get a kick out of the recaps my friend Katrina does over at the EW Community.
But the crazy of the show isn't why I watch. I watch for the dancing. I think Maddie Ziegler is a hell of a talent and Sia's new video for "Chandelier" showcases her brilliantly.
This kid is 11, y'all. Mind blowing.
Great news, Fannibals. Hannibal has been renewed for a third season thanks to a very strong fan involvement. This means more Friday night Live Tweets with Bryan Fuller and company!
As for me, I'm super stoked. You may not know this, but I've been recapping the show for The Community over at Entertainment Weekly and it's been such a blast that I would have been sad to have to stop.
Nicely done, Fannibals. You earned this one. Here's to tonight! Love and kidneys!

It's so nice to know that US Marines have the same reaction to this song as I do. You gotta watch. You'll love it. I'm all kerfuffled in the feels.
