These Four Underrated Musicals Need A Film Adaption Now!
We’re getting a ‘Wicked’ film in 2021! It’s time to celebrate! And how better to celebrate than by selecting four other musicals that we’d love to see as feature length films? I’ve chosen four musicals that have not had film adaptations yet and may not be all that well known by the general public – but each one would soon capture the hearts of the masses once brought to life on the big screen.
5 Animals That Are Basically Pokémon
There's no shortage of animals and objects that Pokémon creators can draw from, yet these five animals have not yet been adapted into the Pokémon world. They're practically there already, so let's take a look and see how they'd fit in!
3 Film Genres That Would Pair Perfectly With Superhero Movies
There’s nothing wrong with a healthy dose of action. I have no doubt that superhero movies, as long as they remain well-written and expertly directed, will continue to fly off the shelves. However, just because people aren’t crying out for something a little different yet, doesn’t mean filmmakers can’t start experimenting early. After all, there were superhero movies before Iron Man (2008), and even before X-Men (2000), we just don’t talk about them much anymore.
Which Classes Should Be Included In Diablo IV
Diablo has brought us some great classes over the years. For Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo III, the designers intended that each class correspond to a classical fantasy archetype. Blizzard wanted to do new classes as much as possible, or at least, do new twists on former archetypes. The class design intended that there be 3 to 5 iconic skills for each class.
Diablo IV: First 2020 Update
Back when Diablo IV was first announced, Blizzard promised quarterly updates on the progress being made. The first of these updates came on 26th February 2020, and its only driven excitement for the game right back up. Although it remains unlikely that we’ll get a release date anytime soon, it’ll be worth the wait if Blizzard continues to listen and act upon the feedback they are receiving from fans. Without further ado, here is what we learned from Blizzard’s first quarterly update.
3 Simple Activities For Kids
Toys are flying, craft supplies are dwindling, and no matter how many snacks you throw at them they are still hungry! Geekology admins are wonderful, but they can be hard work to keep entertained when the only option is the house or your garden. Here we offer you three simple crafts you can do at home with minimal supplies – they worked on our admin team, so we hope they’ll work for your kids too!
Corvid-19 VS Entertainment
Coronavirus has swept across the globe, creating panic in crowded cities and toilet paper aisles alike. Most events hosting over 500 people have been cancelled, including Broadway shows in New York which have been postponed until 12th April. But what else are we going to be kept waiting for? Here is a comprehensive list of all live events, movies and productions affected by Coronavirus so far.
Where the Universal 'Dark Universe' Went Wrong
It all started with Iron Man. No, Iron Man is not Universal Studios, nor is it a monster movie. Yes, I am aware of both of those facts. Nevertheless, it started with Iron Man. Marvel did something that many did not think could be done well. A cinematic universe, a network of independent films that locked together and gave rise to a story that would span an entire decade. Other studios looked upon Marvel and Disney with envy, unable to replicate what they had done. The truth is, the formula was there, they were just too impatient to use it.
3 Live Action Pokémon Movie Plots We Need To See
Detective Pikachu is an incredible show of how a video game can inspire an enjoyable movie. With a worldwide gross of over $431 million, it is the second highest-grossing video game film adaptation of all time (the first being Warcraft which, ironically, has much lower critic ratings than Detective Pikachu). The CGI does a wonderful job of bringing our favourite fantasy monsters to life, and a sequel was announced months before the actual film’s release. As a lifelong Pokémon fan, I found myself squealing and pointing out every single Pokémon I saw – much to the amusement of my partner, who was thankful that we were to busy to see the film while it was in the cinema. Of course, being a Pokémon fan, my mind started wandering to all the untapped potential of live action Pokémon movies. We’ve seen comic book movies take Hollywood by storm, seeping into other genres and showcasing the evolution of the film industry – now it’s Pokémon’s turn to shine.
5 Pokémon Regions We'd Love To See
I was almost six years old when Pokémon Yellow was released in Europe. It was my first Nintendo Gameboy Colour game, and one of only two games I owned for a couple of years. Later, I played Pokémon Crystal on the Gameboy Advance SP – and I was hooked. No matter what my academic grades said, if I were tested on Pokémon, I’d get 100% and extra credit. Many years later here I am, stroking my new Build-a-Bear Piplup, reliving the same frustration I get every time I imagine what a new Pokémon game could look like: Nintendo doesn’t accept ideas from outsiders. Logically I understand why; they’d get thousands of unsolicited ideas a day, and if they’re already working on an idea that then gets suggested they have to waste some money getting rid of someone who may feel entitled to a slice of the profits. Still, as a die-hard Pokémon fan I can’t help but feel disappointed that I’ll never get to share the ideas I have with the designers that I idolise. So, to get some of those ideas out of my head, I thought I’d share them with you.
