Jake De Great

A 15 yr veteran of San Diego Comic Con and other cons, his biggest achievement has probably been gaining the patience of a Tibetan monk as a line waiting pro. As a kid, the world was DC and Marvel comics, Saturday morning cartoons (when they were good), and classic NES. As a grown-up, not much has really changed except for better graphics and the death of Saturday morning cartoons. Jake’s movie interests are adventure/action/sci-fi/animation but not much for horror, particularly if it is where the kids are the evil ones…he has a lot of nibilings and doesn’t need a reason to fear them more besides what statues they might break in his home. For video games, story based shooters and action based open world are his go-tos. Other interests are personal technology advancements, kickstarters, and cosplay.

Central Intelligence makes for a semi-intelligent, very enjoyable comedy

Jake De Great 0
I had the opportunity to see an advanced screener of “Central Intelligence” starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson this week. I want to be very honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this film. The trailers (see below) were underwhelming and did not have me convinced that this was a movie I would be […]

Geezlepeats its been a good week for trailers. Between “Suicide Squad”, “Rogue One”, and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”; I thought we couldn’t get any better looks into upcoming films. Marvel went ahead and decided to top that by releasing the first teaser trailer to “Doctor Strange”. The teaser gives a great look into […]

Amazing new ‘Suicide Squad’ trailer from the MTV Movie Awards

Jake De Great 1
During the 2016 MTV Movie Awards (honestly, I didn’t know that was still a thing): Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Cara Delevingne took the stage to premiere a brand new trailer for Suicide Squad! There’s epic new footage, including shots of Batman…lots of Batman actually. Still no real deeper content on Katana, Slipknot, or Enchantress […]

Jake De Great 0
I had the opportunity to go to Stan Lee Comikaze along with Tim and Maddie. It was a great event besides being split in half due to the Obesity Week convention that for some reason needed half of the biggest hall instead of just taking the West hall completely and letting Comikaze be in the South […]

Holy Mana, Battle Chasers Returns? Kickstarter launched today!

Jake De Great 0
Battle Chasers has an opportunity to return through Kickstarter. Boy, I never thought that title would be written in my lifetime. Around 14 years ago, Joe Madureira created this unique world of fantasy, steampunk (before we called it steampunk), mystical martial arts and adventure in a little book called Battle Chasers. The comic book completely blew me […]
