Militant Ginger

Born and raised in the cathedral city of Winchester, Roland earned his Eurotrash merit badge in Paris before moving to America to seek his fortune. If you've seen it, please give him a shout, because he's still looking. A digital Don Draper with a Hemingway complex, Roland pays the bills with his social media savvy, but under various nom de plumes is a top-ranked Amazon author after hours, and is impatiently awaiting the day he can give up the rat race forever and write schlock in a cabin in the mountains.

Has Louis CK Lost His Edge?

Militant Ginger 2
Has Louis CK’s comedy career floundered? On Friday, I attended Louis CK’s new show at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park – and it was both the best and worst performance I’ve seen him give. Now, I’m not going to lie. I’ve never been much of a fan of Louis CK. Objectively, I think he’s […]

Axanar lives!

Militant Ginger 0
Paramount are dropping their lawsuit against fan-film Axanar. We’ve been reporting on the ongoing legal battle between the fan-filmakers behind Star Trek: Axanar, and the official owners of the Star Trek brand CBS and Paramount – and it looks like there’s been a stunning development. In a totally unexpected move, the producer of the upcoming Star […]

It’s ‘Official’ – Craig is ‘Done’ with Bond

Militant Ginger 1
Daniel Craig has turned down $68 million to return as James Bond. Just yesterday we reported that Tom Hiddleston was being touted as the next James Bond. It looks like there’s more to that than more rumors now, as Britain’s The Daily Mail has reported that Daniel Craig has officially quit the franchise after turning […]

MacGyver is back?

Militant Ginger 0
In the spirit of the never-ending reboot, MacGyver is exploding back onto the small screen. As a child of the eighties, you can pry my classic TV shows from my cold, dead hands. Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, The A-Team and, of course, MacGyver. The first three on that list have already had cinematic or […]

Ghostbusters is… looking good?

Militant Ginger 0
The director of the re-booted Ghostbusters, Paul Feig, has the dubious honor of having his name attached to the worst-received trailer of all time. There’s no doubt that the first trailer for the controversial movie was a shit-show – but it looks like trailer #2 is something else entirely. It’s…. dare I say it? Good. […]

Stand by for the unexpected, with Tickled

Militant Ginger 0
Tickled is a seemingly cute and funny documentary that turns dark fast. Coming from the UK, I cut my teeth on documentaries about weird and wacky people. If there’s one thing we Brits love, it’s going off to visit German nudists or American evengelicals and make ourselves feel better by making fun other of people. […]

Toby Jones to play “one of Doyle’s finest villains” in Sherlock

Militant Ginger 0
Respected British actor Toby Jones – who seems to be relegated to playing weasels and villains – is set to stay true to typecasting as he joins the cast of the hotly-anticipated 4th season of BBC’s Sherlock. “We’re delighted to have Toby Jones on board,” Sherlock showrunner Stephan Moffat accounced recently, “bringing to life one […]

Set Photos: Idris Elba is Roland Deschain

Militant Ginger 1
The first set photos have been released for The Dark Tower. I’m not going to lie – I’m still skeptical of Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, the eponymous Gunslinger from Steven King’s iconic Dark Tower series. But if these set photos from South Africa are anything to go by, he certainly looks like a gun-slinging […]

Jack’s Back!

Militant Ginger 1
Fan-favorite Captain Jack Harkness might be back in blue for the Doctor Who Christmas Special. Doctor Who fans are going to have to wait until 2017 for a whole new season – but we can get a fix this December, when the annual Doctor Who Christmas Special launches onto our screens. And this year, the […]

It’s REALLY happening! Super Troopers 2 releases poster!

Militant Ginger 0
Broken Lizard have released the first poster for the hotly-anticipated Super Troopers 2. So we all have our areas of expertize at Echoba.se. Mine is James Bond, pissing people off about political issues, and those scallywags from Brozen Lizard. It’s been a while since we reported on the start of filming for this iconic sequel, […]

On Her Majesty’s Secret Hiddleston?

Militant Ginger 3
Could Tom Hiddleston be the next James Bond? There’s still a lot of debate about whether or not Daniel Craig is going to hang up his Walther PPK. Some people quoted him as saying he’d rather ‘slit his wrists’ than play 007 again, while others point out that he still has another film left on […]

The Death of Disney Infinity Announced

Militant Ginger 1
Disney has announced that they’re discontinuing their Disney Infinity video game project. As a parent, there are always a gazillion things your kids demand you spend your hard-earned money on. Pokemon, Yo Kai, and Lego Dimensions figures are examples in our house (although the Lego figures are kind of for mom and dad, as well.) […]
