X-Men: First Class Gets Posters and raised eyebrows

We have the latest X-Men: First Class posters today, but I have to step aside and question the design choices here because these are pretty awful and it goes down on many levels. Aside from writing here I work often in the graphic realm, it’s a busy area and honestly with the volume of work that has to be produced there is space for a brain fart here or there.

These posters, they’re not really anything cutting edge, and the decide to fade in the heads is pretty 90’s, worse than that is the fact that for some reason they’re both heads fixated around the crotch area. Seriously guys, is it the primary goal to tank this before it can even launch?

Return of the terrible movies – Megaforce

1982 was a good year, well. Kind of. Okay so I can’t think of a ton of media or entertainment events that shook the world like this gem in the rough.

Megaforce (1982)

Normally I throw down a full length movie for these B or even F movie bombs, unfortunately Megaforce is still under legal license so I’ll drop the trailer and the most epic use of special effects that I can think of right now.

Awesome Bluescreen:

Seriously, why is he even trying to steer that thing with the handle bars? It’s supposed to have a friggin jet engine attached. I haven’t seen the whole movie but I will no matter how painful it is… okay maybe not, Amazon is selling it for $23 on VHS.

Marvel hates what you hate! Crappy games!

Marvel seems to be tightening up their belt a lot this year, reducing interest in movie adaptations, rebooting existing properties and now taking a step back in the gaming realm by doing QA on the games that arrive to market. The quote from Ira Rubenstein was “Actually, wait … we are not doing crappy movie-based games anymore. You can quote me on that.”

Word is that Marvel has been actively watching over Iron Man 2 for development and hopes to raise the bar to levels like with Wolverine, maybe in less of a movie tie-in capacity but still to that action and damage factor. Iron Man for the consoles and pc ended up being a complete nightmare, having a polished horrible handling title for the 360 and PS3 and a PS2 port for the Wii and PC was a complete nightmare that went completely unexplained especially when it came to packaging.

Hopefully Marvel does turn it around, it would be nice to get Super Hero based games that don’t make me want to throw the disc into a fire pit. If we’ll ever get a dedicated BAMFAS review for one is another story, I think our Marvel fan blood might keep us out of the running for now.
