Halo Helljumper: The live-action Halo film series

Halo Helljumper

It is probably safe to say that any modern gamer, and some non-gamers, know of the Halo Universe. With several books, an anime series, and seven video game titles (with an eighth on the way,) it is hard for most not to know of the Halo franchise. Many have felt for a long time that the Halo Universe still needed more. Some have even demanded that they see a live action Halo movie. Well, that time has come with Halo Helljumper, a live action series of short films.

Halo Helljumper takes place in the year 2552, right at the end of the Covenant Human war. The series is going to be highly based on the book “Dirt” by Tobias S. Buckell, and the talented team at “Filmpocalypse” has been brought together to make this monster. Directed by Dan Wang, and produced by Helena Hilario and Dan Wang, Halo Helljumper is going to be an Independent series of short films. There is not much else that we know about the series right now except that it is due to be released later this month.

E3 2009: DiRT 2 impressions

DiRT 2 e3 2009 impressions

As a big fan of DiRT and having put in many hours into the game, I was extremely excited to get my hands on the demo at the Microsoft booth at this years .  DiRT 2 looks and feels like DiRT, but with a kick. Powered by the third generation of the EGO Engine’s racing game technology, DiRT 2 offers tuned-up car-handling and new damage engine effects.

It’s all about details and that’s what makes the difference. Depending on your car, tuning or even what type of road you are on, every vehicle will feel different. Find a car you love?  You are able to use your favorite vehicle and tune it with add-ons. With seven vehicle classes and a large collection of officially licensed rally cars and off-roads vehicles, I doubt you will have any problem in finding the best vehicle.

Courteney Cox Scrubs In at Sacred Heart

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, ABC, Scrubs, News,

Courteney Cox ArquetteWhat could possibly irritate Dr. Cox more than Dr. Kelso? Having a female Cox as his boss.

When Scrubs returns for its eighth season, viewers will have to get used to more than just a channel change. They’ll also be seeing a new person sitting in the Chief of Medicine’s chair this fall.

In a three-episode stint, will assume Kelso’s role and roam the halls of Sacred

Grace

Heart. Thanks to FX’s cancellation of her series, the actress now has a new place to combine the bitchy persona she tried on Dirt with the comedic talent she honed on Friends.

According to an EW source, Arquette’s character will “ruffle feathers.” So shall we thank ABC now for giving us the opportunity to witness Perry’s pain?

FX Cancels Courteney Cox’s Dirt

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, FX, Cancellations,

Courtney Cox on DirtAlthough she tried hard to set aside her nice girl persona, fans apparently had a tough time accepting as a badass. Either that, or they simply didn’t like her show.

After only 2 years on air (1.5 if you take the writers’ strike into account), Arquette’s has been yanked from the FX network. Interestingly enough, this is about the same length of time Matt LeBlanc’s Joey managed to stay on air. The drama also hung around longer than Matthew Perry’s Studio 60 and Lisa Kudrow’s The Comeback.

Despite earning 3.7 million viewers for its January 2007 debut, the program eventually experienced a dramatic decline. By April, Dirt‘s second season finale was down to 1.06 million. I guess that kiss with gal pal Aniston didn’t have much lasting power.

AquaTune for nano

AquaTuneWhile we are still getting scatterings of snow and rain, we are thinking that Spring will never come. So since the showers continue, this might be a good opportunity to pick up an AquaTune nano v2. The case will withstand dust, dirt, sand, and water up to 1 meter in depth for about 30 minutes. It also has a waterproof speaker in case you want to sing along in your shower. Hang on to it until it’s time to beach it. The AquaTune is available from Focal for ¥10,800 (~$107.00.)

Digging Up the Dirt on More American Idols

We all knew someone from would eventually have their trash uncovered….but four different contestants?

Last week, Amanda Overmyer’s brush with the law was revealed.  This week, we have a foul-mouthed boy, a former male stripper and a girl who likes to take semi-racy photos with her friends.

First up - .  I’ve hated the pouty mouth singer from Day One.  (His attitude overrides any shred of talent he might have.)  Now there’s this video that has surfaced on MySpace.  It may have been intended as a joke, but I fail to see the humor in it.  (I do like making fun of him though.)

Men in Trees

(You can find our Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (2/25)
  • A Raisin in the Sun (ABC, 8pm):  and the rest of his Broadway cast bring the play to the small screen.  I’m sorry - I believe his theater name is Sean Combs.
  • The Moment of Truth (FOX, 8pm):  Special night.  Apparently this episode is so controversial, the producers debated airing it.  Then they realized what network they were on and just went with it.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Hope makes some new friends so she won’t be alone on Friday nights.” Their names?  Jack and Daniels.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  “The women receive a surprise visit from JC Chasez.”  They, too, are wondering why he doesn’t have anything better to do.

Renewals Aplenty at FX

Eddie IzzardAt least there’s one network that’s not so quick to cancel every new series. FX has announced that freshman series Dirt and The Riches will both be back for a second run. While I couldn’t get into Dirt, it seems to get solid ratings (and that kiss between Courteney Cox-Arquette and Jennifer Aniston probably didn’t hurt either). I couldn’t wait to see The Riches because I’m a huge fan of Eddie Izzard, however, I haven’t had the time to keep up. Thank goodness for DVR! After watching the first two episodes, I’ve been recording the others and will have a bunch of episodes to catch up on once all of the other season finales are over with. FX president John Landgraf commented, “FX now has six original dramas, more than any network in the history of cable television, cementing the network’s status as a leader in quality original series.” Dirt pulled in about 5.2 million vieweres per week, while The Riches drew 5.9 million. Rescue Me returns on June 13th, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia comes back for season three in September, and new seasons of Nip/Tuck and 30 Days will come later in the year.
