The Cloverfield News blog first drew my attention to this upcoming straight-to-DVD attempt to cash in on J.J. Abrams’ monster movie. The plot synopsis on the AFM Films’ website describes the film thusly:

After a massive earthquake in Tokyo, two American filmmakers document the true cause of the destruction.

In case you can’t make out the tagline at the top of the poster, it reads: “On 1-18-08 the truth will be told.” Truer words were never written. Perhaps AFM might consider making a sequel and have their monster fight the Transmorphers.

Powerpuff Girls: All Monsters Attack

Here’s another little online computer game to eat up some spare time- this one is based on the Powerpuff Girls cartoon and involves fighting three different monsters in the “Little Tokyo” district of Townsville using a giant robot named Dynamo. The game play is pretty solid (although the last opponent is a bit of a grind) as is the animation.

You can play it here (requires a Shockwave plug in to play)

Rip-Offs in Disguise!

I came across this little gem the other day in my neighborhood Blockbuster store and just had to share. It’s another entry in the “ye olde straight-to-DVD release that attempts to capitalize off of another more popular movie by putting out a box cover that mimics said property as close as one can without actual legal repercussions in order to confuse stupid/near-sighted people”-school of filmmaking. Awesome.

You can also watch the official trailer on YouTube for further pain. I won’t bother posting the link as I’ve already committed too much attention to this thing than it properly deserves.
