tom-hiddleston

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I'm not a betting man — I only gamble when I know I'm going to win. Far more useful to me is when it's used to gauge who the next James Bond will be. UK based bookmaking business, Gala Coral Group, has suspended all betting, after a recent rush of bets pushed … [Read more...]

Simon Kinberg Still Wants To Make Fantastic Four 2

Fantastic-Four-2015-full-team

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Remember the worst superhero movie of 2015? Probably not, since most people didn't bother to show up to watch Fantastic Four. Oh, how I envy thee. The film did terribly at the box office, and despite the poor reviews Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has (27% … [Read more...]

Jurassic World Screenwriter Penning Pacific Rim 2

pacific-rim

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Pacific Rim 2 is a film that always seems to be destined to go into production before the plug is yanked.

jumanji-remake-to-be-directed-by-jake-kasdan

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I'm not the biggest fan of a Jumanji re-imagining, and I'm not even that much of a fan of the original film in the first place.

Rogue One Comes To Star Wars Celebration, Talk Show Launched

rogue-one-rebels

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Each Star Wars film, in both the original and prequel trilogies, averaged about three years in between each episode.

A Geek’s Reaction To Assassin’s Creed Trailer

assassins-creed-gallery-04-gallery-image

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Video game adaptations tend to be... not very good, to say the least. They tend to be mediocre, but fun at best (Mortal Kombat), to absolutely atrocious (Mario Bros).

the grand tour

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Sometimes I find it odd the things I enjoy. I don't own a car, I'm a terrible driver, don't know much about cars, and yet I love Top Gear.

men-in-black_21-jump-street

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I'm still not sure how on board I am with the Men In Black and 23 Jump Street crossover film idea. I really don't get a say in if it gets made, and I haven't read the screenplay, so I can't tell you whether it's a bad idea or not, but I can tell you it is … [Read more...]

TV Review: Game of Thrones – Episode 3: Oathbreaker

oathbreaker-recap-8-700x300

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) The past two episodes of Game of Thrones feel like they've been racing at a breakneck pace (read my reviews here), so it's nice that this episode has gone at a slower speed.

dr-jekyll-mr-hyde-1931-2

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Universal doesn't have a stable of superheroes from which to make a shared version like the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC Comics Cinematic Universe, but they have the next best thing: The classic Universal Monster library.
