? Punisher: War Zone Call me crazy, but this film’s trailers looked great, although it still got savaged by critics and the box office. Who saw it? What was the problem? It can’t be worse than the Tom Jane one, can it? How worried should I be that Netflix is mailing it to me tomorrow?
? Twilight Sparkling vampires. I’m tell you it’s getting released today because I think many (or, possibly, any) of you will buy it, but to warn you if you head to Best Buy to pick up anything, you’ll be dealing with several million tween girls in “Team Edward” shirts.
? The Princess Bride I think I’ve bought more copies of Princess Bride than any other movie. Anyways, this one is the Blu-ray; I’m sure there will be 8 more incrementally better versions later, so you might want to hold off.
? The Spectacular Spider-man Vol. 2 and 3 Look, we both know I have to list this because it’s a Spider-man cartoon, but you’re only going to potentially buy this series if it comes out in a real season one set. So let’s just move on.
? Princess Resurrection Collection 1 Holy shit! ADV actually put out an anime! Enjoy it, since it’s about a princess who kills classic monsters with a chainsaw (and various other weapons) and because god knows if ADV will survive long enough to put out collection 2.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
