Inner-Geek Update

Well, it’s probably the most beautiful day of 2009, but a lingering 4th of July ”headache” coupled with a first-of-the-year super-red sunburn from yesterday kept me homebound.  So, here’s some assorted things that interested my inner geek online today:

First of all, it’s just ten days until Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out!  I love the book and have high hopes that the movie will be much better than the recent adaptation of Phoenix to the silver screen.  See it.

Next, when I caught Transformers 2, I saw a trailer for a new Tim Burton movie called 9.  It looks like a cool, digital cartoon post-apocalyptic Matrix-like morality tale with an all-star cast to boot.  Check it out here – great choice of Coheed and Cambria’s “Welcome Home,” and the visual style of the film instantly caught my attention.  I’ll be there on 9-9-09. 

Finally, though I’m not a fan of the “Expanded Universe,” this video game trailer for Star Wars — The Old Republic looked really cool (I guess they make full-length trailers for video games now?).  Why didn’t Uncle George make this into a movie rather than that overdone Clone Wars crap?  Regardless I’m not going to buy the game (the last video game system I bought was the N64!), but the quality of the trailer certainly is really top-knotch.
