What is ‘Wonder Woman’ (2011 Pilot)?

Standard

When Zack Snyder saw DC’s two biggest names going at it for no desernable reason, leaving a bloody trail of bodies in each other wakes and screaming the name Martha randomly, even he knew he needed something to patch the movie together and that was a job for Wonder Woman. Soon to be the first major blockbuster female led superhero movie, not counting all the other ones we’ve had; where she dates Captain Kirk and visits World War 1. Will it be any good? I don’t know I haven’t seen it, yet. But going off all the other female led superhero movies, probably not. Still this isn’t the first stab at bringing the golden eagle chested heroine back after Lynda Carters defining role. For there was also……………………..

What is ‘Heat Vision and Jack’?

Standard

We’ve had pilots from Ron Weasley, Doctor Who and ever Shaggy but this could be hard to ever top for most star power in an unpicked up t.v pilot. In the distant year of 1999 we have Jack Black then and up and coming comedian, relativly unknown outside of the comedy circtui butonly a year away till “High Fidelity”, Owen Wilson a bit part actor from a number of projects but only a year away from “Shanghai Noon”, Ben Stiller one time t.v actor, one time Emmy winner and only a year away from “Meet the Parents” and Dan Harmon a guy known for singing about masturbation  and yet only ten years away from Community, I know that seems like a relatively long amount of time but the show’s just that good and no I haven’t seen Rick and Morty yet. All of them got together for a television pilot called ………………………….

What is ‘Power Pack’ (1991 Pilot)?

Standard

Today comic books are no longer a children focused media, with gritty adult rated t.v shows, teen aged blockbusters and sexual harassment in every office. They are big buisness and yet “won’t someone please think of the children“, because all their getting is a bunch of cartoon series, where if they ever get good get cancelled oh and Big Hero 6. To find something aimed at kids comics we’re going to have to go all the way back to 1991 with t.v’s

What is ‘Electra Woman and Dyna Girl (2001 Pilot)’?

Standard

In the mid seventies Lori and Judy were ace reporters by day and superheroes slightly later in the day. Now of course they are two youtube personalities but between now and then they were pitching their own cynical reboot.

Now the visual qualities pretty bad on this one so I’m going to be drawing on the power of the internet to get us through my review of…………………………………………………………………….

What is Clerks: the pilot?

Standard

Shortly after Kevin Smith redefined indie hits with Clerks and redefined cinema bombs with Mallrats some television executive decided to bring the “pop culture and expletive laden series” to prime time television. Clerks has been one of those pilots known as one of the worst in existence and also one of the hardest to find. So now that we’ve solved number two lets take a look at number one.

What is Midnight Chronicles?

Standard

midnight

 

It is the third age and a terrible evil has been cast from the heavens, he has since gathered an army of orcs and likewise and marched against the free people. Though they have bested him in the past this time someone misplaced the Hobbits and thus evil has won. This last sentence is about the only thing that separates this from any other fantasy realm but to be honest what a way to separate them. Midnight Chronicles takes place in the dark age after evil has won and hope lies in pieces. Based upon the short lived ‘Midnight’ setting for the dungeons and dragons roleplaying system this movie was done and ready for us only two years before Game of Thrones hit our screens, so it can’t be that bad, right?
