Thor movie trailer

Another upcoming movie that looks good is Thor. I never read the Thor comic book so I can't say I know much about it, but watching the trailer it seems interesting. I got to check it out when it's released. Watch the trailer below.

I Am Number Four movie trailer

I Am Number Four looks like an interesting movie that will be coming out next year. Check out the trailer below. Anyone know if this is based off a comic book or something else? Or just an original idea?

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon trailer

Here's the trailer for the upcoming Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon movie. The trailer doesn't show much but it looks like it'll be a good one. Director Michael Bay has stated that this will be the last installment in the series. This new movie will be in theaters July 1, 2011.


The Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There's new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime Transformers character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.

Want to get the first Transformers movie or the second one as a gift for someone? Check out the deals on Amazon.com.

AMC The Walking Dead episode 6

Pre-order The Walking Dead: Season One now! Season one of The Walking Dead ended Sunday night with episode 6. If you haven't yet seen episode 6 don't read on. *Spoiler alert* So episode 6 named "TS-19" starts with them showing back during when things go wrong, as they show Shane in the hospital trying to take Rick out of the hospital but soldiers appear to be killing hospital staff and walkers/zombies that are trying to get into the hospital. After an explosion the hospital equipment shuts off and Shane tries to listen for Rick's heartbeat but doesn't hear it so he leaves the hospital, but not before blocking the doorway with a stretcher.

Then they come back to the present with the group going into the CDC building and meeting with the scientist there. They talk to the scientist about what is going on but he doesn't have much more info about it. The scientist goes a little mad, locking everyone in the building as it's about to decontaminate itself, which means it will explode in thirty minutes. Rick finally talks sense into the scientist to open the door and they break their way out, but not before some decide to stay behind. Some do change their mind and join the rest of the group in the vehicles. Before Rick left, the scientist whispered something into his ear. I wonder what he said to him. The episode ends with the vehicles driving off. So will next season start with the group heading to another city? This series has definitely been my favorite TV show this year. I don't watch much TV except for sports but this show kept be interested and coming back for more. Season 2 doesn't start until October 2011. That's a long time to wait but well worth the wait if they make it as good as they did in season 1.

The video below is a good watch as they talk to the characters and go through the episodes.

AMC The Walking Dead episode 5

Tonight I was able to watch Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead. Don't read on if you haven't seen episode 5 yet. So in episode 5 the survivors bury those who were killed in the last episode, we find out that Jim was scratched by a walker/zombie, the group decides to follow Rick's instincts to go to the CDC to look for anything. On the way there Jim tells them to leave him as he is getting sicker. They leave him and get to the CDC where there are lots of dead bodies on the ground. There's what looks to be a scientist in the CDC building alone and he looks like he may be going a little crazy. At first he won't let the survivors in but he eventually does. And that's basically where it leaves off. We'll see on Sunday what this lone scientist is up to and if he can explain what's going on and how all of this started. You can watch a preview for Sunday's episode named "TS-19" here.

If you missed any of the episodes, you can buy the episodes for $1.99 on Amazon.com and watch them on your computer.

Amazon.com also has The Walking Dead graphic novel series in books available. Maybe someone you know is a fan of The Walking Dead and this may be a good Christmas gift for them.
