Good evening fellow Melters!  While it is usually my job to keep you guys updated on things that are going on in the store, new releases, etc, there have been a lot of interesting story developments in our favorite mediums these past few days.  Here are some interesting pieces of news and stuff that plain old just interests me that you, the people, should be aware of.

Once again, I must reiterate, I am NOT a sports fan.  If its not sports entertainment (wrestling) I’m usually not interested.  While I am not into sports whatsoever I do respect athleticism and superhuman feats of strength, so whenever I see something that makes me go “oh wow” then I feel it is my duty to share it with my readers.  So in a women’s gym meet UCLA faced off against Utah.  During this meet UCLA gymnast Sophina DeJesus did a routine that simply must be seen to believed.  I really wish I could put it into words, but it involves a lot of Nae Naes and Dabbing.  See for yourself the awesomeness.


It was announced today that Disney has started principal photography for Star Wars Episode 8!  We are still reeling form the geek porn that was Star Wars The Force Awakens, and it seems that Disney will not let up on giving us more tales from A Galaxy Far Far Away.  Thats not all, Disney CEO Bob Iger also announced the planned release date for a stand alone Han Solo movie!  The Han Solo origin movie will be released May 2018.  We are getting Star Wars Rogue One next year as well so we have plenty of Sci Fi goodness to look forward to.


Some of you may or may not be aware that Sega has partnered with Sony Pictures and production has started on a Sonic The Hedgehog movie.  While we don’t know much about the movie as of yet, it was revealed today that the movie will be a Live Action/CGI hybrid, much akin to the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies.  This method has not been done perfectly yet (see the Smurfs and/or Chipmunks movies) but I am willing to give Sony the benefit of the doubt and wait until we see some footage to pass my judgement on this.  Sega’s track record hasn’t been all that great to the Blue Blur recently which further leads me to worry since Sega is developing the all the CGI for the movie.  While we all know and love Sonic’s original Sega Genesis titles the most recent outings by the Sonic Team have been pretty much garbage.  Will this be a faster version of the Garfield movies?  We shall see.


I am a huge fan of old school horror movies.  I literally could watch any of the original Universal Horror Monster films any time of the week front to back.  These movies changed how horror was done and made characters such as Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster as famous as Elvis or Mickey Mouse.  Universal has announced plans to reboot a lot of their Horror Monster properties and one of said properties in development is the Invisible Man.  This is definitely one of my favorite movies due to the fact so much went into the character devolpment of the Invisible Man that we didn’t get with most monsters in cinema.  A character actor was definitely needed for the role and I don’t think they could have picked a better actor for that role than Johnny Depp.  Yes Johnny Depp himself will be playing the Invisible Man in the upcoming reboot.  I love this casting choice and can’t wait to see more from this project.

So some genius took Mario Kart, and Star Wars and gave us this masterpiece.  It’s not a real game and more than likely never will be, but its always fun to play “what if?”  Check it out for yourself.
