The Avengers is A… Remake?

Thanks to YouTube user whoiseyevan, we can now enjoy the trailer for the original Avengers film, made in 1952… Which, oddly, is about a decade before the Avengers debuted. Oh well, enjoy – and check out his site for many more ‘Premakes’!

Plus, check out this video’s frame-by-frame breakdown!

IT’S HERE!! It’s Here, It’s Here, It’s Here!

I don’t think that I’ve ever achieved quite this level of geekdom happiness before.  As I mentioned here once before, Johnny Sokko and his Giant Robot was one of my favourite childhood TV shows. Thanks to the magic of DVD technology I now own the entire series. Twenty six episodes of cheesy sci-fi goodness, plus the feature-length movie. I need to go regress to the level of a 6-year-old now (albeit with beer) so I’ll be stepping offline in a moment, and may be gone for some time. Stand by for a review.
