Last week Shout! Factory released their very good Blu-ray of the very bad killer bug movie, "The Nest" (1988). Watching this TV-movie-on-a-budget horror film about mutant cockroaches made me think about my own outsized fear of these tiny, eyeless monsters, some of the horror films that may have inspired it, and how even the most well-intentioned horror movie can thoroughly make the thing it's trying to scare you with dull.



No, I don't mean a reboot of that beloved 1980s "Real Ghostbusters" cartoon -- I mean a genuine, honest-to-God Ghostbusters movie, with possibly the original cast reuniting to provide voicework.

A source exclusively told the site Bloody Disgusting that Sony might be considering the move as a "Plan Z," after many failed attempts to get a live-action flick going (and multiple "nos from Bill Murray). Though Murray has turned down (and strung along, and turned down again) the idea of doing a "Ghostbusters" sequel, he does seem quite open to providing his distinctive voice to movies, such as the "Garfield" series.

In this week's episode of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," the gang breaks into the mysterious TCRI headquarters and discover Kraang's true intentions. But before they can stop the oncoming alien invasion, they'll have to deal with Traag. General Traag, a holdover from the original animated series is looking a little tougher than his boulder-like counterpart from the 80's.

You can catch this week's episode, "TCRI," this Friday, March 1 on Nickelodeon as part of a two-hour Turtles Takeover Marathon from 7-9 PM. Plus, the first DVD, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rise of the Turtles" is out now.

And check out a pic of the mighty Traag after the jump.



While we still wait on the CW's "Amazon" to come out, this rad Wonder Woman film by Jesse V. Johnson is just the thing to tide us over. We get WW kicking Nazi butt in World War Two, making "bullet-time" bone-crunching moves, and being the all-around general awesome superheroine we know she can be.

Which begs the question: with so many good superhero fan films like this and "Batgirl Spoiled" out there, why don't we see more of the real thing on the big screen? Read More...

It's official: Joe's Comics, the imprint that created Midnight Nation and Rising Stars, is back in business. And MTVGeek has exclusively learned from JMS himself that the first comic book from the new line will be "Ten Grand," illustrated by best-selling artist Ben Templesmith ("30 Days of Night"). The comic will officially debut May 1st -- but a convention variant will be unveiled at C2E2 in Chicago the week before for those who can't wait.

Ryan Murphy, you had me merely curious about the third season of your insane/ridiculous FX series, but now you've added "Misery" star Kathy Bates to "American Horror Story?"

Well, now I'm committed.


A Republic-shaking manhunt begins in this prequel webisode from the NBC lights-off drama.

After Monroe (David Lyons) survives an assassination attempt, he orders Captain Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) to turn the Republic inside-out for traitors. While the heroes of "Revolution" might be a little hapless and a bummer to watch, this brief, sweaty and tense glimpse at its villains shows what "Revolution" is capable of.



Killing superheroes is big business -- but the buggers have an annoying habit of not staying dead! Could there be any "loophole" that Damian Wayne could find to escape the eternal dirt nap, as Jason Todd did before him?

Here's five ways I think it could go down: Read More...


Nasser-Ali Khan is a pathetic human being. The talented violinist, crushed by the destruction of his beloved instrument, wracked with professional regret, disconnected from his wife and children, has decided to kill himself. And so we watch him lie in bed, haunted by his memories as a narrator takes us through his past and his children's future in this whimsical drama from "Persepolis" writer Marjane Satrapi and her collaborator on its film adaptation, Vincent Paronnaud.

The French-language "Chicken With Plums," set in Satrapi's native Iran, is a beautiful bummer, a deeply-felt and sumptuous movie that by the end I wanted to flee with as much speed as my feet could muster, Nasser-Ali's misery and the misery of his family suffocating inside of a gilded box constructed entirely out of whimsy.



Burt Ward, Robin during the beloved 1960s Tv series, has strong words for DC Comics regarding the recent death of the Boy Wonder. According to TMZ Ward said:

"Holy self-inflicted wound! Not good for corporate profits!"


Here be spoilers for the most talked-about comic on the stands this morning: "Batman Incorporated" #8. If you haven't read the big reveal splashed across the NY Post on Monday, or on the DC Comics site today in the form of a large pop-up ad that basically gives it all away -- my deep apologies. The Internet, and all that; what can you do?
