Fanexpo 2008 Cosplay

The end of the summer guarantees two things in Toronto: the first being the CNE, the second, and more importantly to the geeks, the Fanexpo. The Fanexpo is a time each year where geeks can gather with other geeks, dress up in costumes, making the non-geeks look strange for once. Unfortunately, I didn't get to go to the Fanexpo this year (held at the Toronto Metroconvention Centre), so being the geek I am, I scavenged the internets for some awesomely good and awesomely bad cosplay pictures. Well, regardless of whether they were bad or good, credit must be given to these geeks for creating these costumes and just being themselves, they are all fun. (Note: this post is more graphic intensive)

Spiderman and Black Cat

Sora from Kingdom Hearts, and some other girl (possibly Kairi)


Awesome-O Roboto!

Mario and Yoshi

Namor, the Submariner


Cloud from Final Fantasy

A generic black mage from Final Fantasy... this is epic.

Batman with a few from his rogues gallery.

This one is too perfect! The proportions are too right!!!

I don't know where this is from, but it looks familiar, and it looks awesome.

Rorschach from the Watchmen!!!

A blood elf from WoW, well done lady.

That's it for now, later geeks.

So many good costumes this year at the fan expo, well worth the trip. I'm glad to see they expanded the gaming element more as well. Love the blood elf!

REVIEW HAIKUS!!!! (#3)

It's time for another edition of Review Haikus; a feature I like to write when I'm too lazy to write out full reviews~!!! The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Tony Scott schlockfest~! All his movies seem the same. A needless remake. Denzel's a bad-ass. Given up on Travolta. 1 of 2 ain't bad. Public Enemies Well? Disappointed. I expected more from Mann. The pacing felt off. Acting was good though. Man-crush on Depp and Bale. 5 more syllables! Saw VI Yes, another Saw. Harder to tell them apart. Blood, guts, bad story. Why more Saw movies? Each movie makes less and less. End this series now. ====== Later geeks!

Sam Raimi's Dragging Someone To Hell!!!

It's great to see Sam Raimi back in his form with his latest entry Drag Me To Hell . Simply glorious, it is a horror geek's dream. This is the Sam we all know and love from Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness , before he got all caught up in the comic book geek universe of Spider-Man . After 10 years (from the first time I watched Evil Dead 2 ), he has remained my favourite film director... although he did try my patience with Spider-Man 3 . I know this euphoria that I'm feeling now will be short lived, as even as I type this review, Raimi is already at work on the pre-production of Spider-Man 4 (yay?). So what is there to say about Drag Me To Hell ? This is the way a summer movie should be, touching on all those senses that make movie going an actual experience. There were thrills, chills, laughs and cheers; the way things should be! Drag Me To Hell tells a story of a young loan officer named Christine, who in an effort to advance her own career, has to turn down a

Lt. Aldo Raine wants his scalps!!!!!!!!!!!!

I missed The Inglorious Basterds during its theatrical run and it's a shame too because I'm a fool for Tarantino movies. But I finally got to see it this weekend and I'm happy to say that I mostly enjoyed it. I don't think it's his best movie, but it was damned entertaining. The Inglorious Basterds takes place during World War II and tells its story by following three different groups of characters: from Lt. Aldo Raine and his squad of soldiers infamously known as the Basterds, Col. Hans Landa, a Nazi colonel better known as "The Jew Hunter", and from a young Jewish girl named Shosanna, who had her family murdered by Col. Landa. We follow the Basterds in their Nazi killing business (and business is good) as they lay out a plan to take out several high ranking officials all at once. We follow Shosanna as she operates her theater and lays down her own plans in exacting revenge on the Nazis. And of course, the "Jew Hunter" is hot on their trai
