    Unlike so many of my nerdy brethren, I am not a lifelong fan of John Carter, Warlord of Mars. I was dimly aware of the character of course - it would be very difficult to travel in my circles and never hear his name - but I knew very little about him. He was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the novels were about a human on Mars, he was a comic book star for a while in the 70s and Disney was making a movie about him... yeah. That was just about it. And as such, that upcoming movie wasn't one I was massively interested in. The attachment of Wall-E's Andrew Stanton was way more interesting to me than John Carter himself.

    Despite my previous comments about what has been keeping me busy, I have had some free time – all of which has been devoted to, since August of last year, one thing... a video game. After years of writing about them this revelation is not going be in the running for Surprise of the Year, but note that there was not a plural form in there. Along with major changes in my personal life I also got one of the best possible birthday presents ever – being invited to The Old Republic beta. While this happened a lot later than I was hoping, the fact that it still happened was awesome. Maybe BioWare does love me after all.

    ... yeah, that may have been taking things too far.

    US SEALs race against time to stop a Terrorist attack on US Soil.

    Starring: US Seals, Jason Cottle, Alex Veadov, Roselyn Sanchez
    Screenplay: Kurt Johnstad
    Directors: Mike McCoy, Scott Waugh
    Producers: Jason Clark, Max Leitman, Lance Sloane, Scott Waugh, Mike McCoy
    Presented by: Relativity Media
    Release Date: February 24, 2012.

    I'm sure everyone has heard of the story behind the making of Act of Valor. The Directors managed to secure active duty SEAL Special Forces to portray themselves in a fictional account of their exploits. They are, I'm sure, trying for the ultimate example of authenticity in cinematic history. But this desire is a double edged sword.

    Let's begin with the story. Seems a Chechnya Rebel named Abu Shabal doesn't appreciate how America has ignored their attempts at achieving freedom for their homeland, as well he doesn't like America's occupation of Muslim lands. So he initiates a large and complex plan to exact some measure of revenge on the US.

    This month, the $40 Pull List goes video!

    It’s been five years since the $40 Pull List started up on cxPulp, and I thought it was time to try something a little different. With that in mind, this is the first video installment of the Pull List. Check it out, and please do let me know what you think by posting a comment. If you like it, I will look at continuing it as a video presentation.

    Suggestions are welcome! I found after wrapping this up that it was a bit longer than I had hoped, so for future installments I am considering doing it weekly instead of monthly. Of course, I’d love to hear your comments on that.

    cover for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Microseries: Donatello

    Review by: Walt Kneeland (walt.kneeland@gmail.com )
    Quick Rating: Great

    Taking some time to get away from his brothers, Donatello visits a science fair and comes face to face with his online nemesis, and stumbles across something even more sinister.

    Script by: Brian Lynch & Tom Waltz

    This is the third issue of the TMNT Micro-Series. While it's billed as #3 (of 4) it's really a one-shot, spotlighting a solo adventure of Donatello, apart from his brothers. The issue opens with Donnie finding himself invited to a science fair. Opting to venture out into "his" world of science folks, Donnie leaves his brothers in the sewer, as he heads topside to mingle. When an invention doesn't work quite as planned, Don finds himself face to face with his online nemesis. The two deal with a common challenge: one Baxter Stockman. As the battle plays out, Don and the scientist's rivalry does as well. In the course of this, Don comes across Stockman's latest plot, which has disturbing potential against the turtles.
