Custom X-Wing Miniatures Mission: Capture The Survivors

Xwing_custom_mission_1st-Session_4

A transport makes its escape with rescued survivors.

I love X-Wing Miniatures and my favorite style of play is missions. I went ahead and created a mission and I decided to share it, because I’ve played it a couple of times and it’s pretty fun and I like you and I want you to have fun too. If you just want to play it, skip down to the bottom of this post otherwise I’ll explain it a bit.

Basically, the mission is a sort of a capture the flag type for X-Wing Miniatures. The premise is that a CR90 has suffered some critical systems failure and there are six survivors who are high level Rebel operatives. Both the Rebels and Empire have heard their distress calls (or even the upcoming Scum faction…)

3D Blu-Ray Review: I, Frankenstein

Ifrankenstein3D_Blu-Ray_review_1

I didn’t know anything about I, Frankenstein going in. Never watched a trailer or read a review. The only thing I saw was the above cover (which really didn’t inspire any confidence) and I heard it sucked through word of mouth. My expectations were bottom of the barrel. However, it was on sale for 7 bucks and being a 3D Blu-Ray collector, I thought I’d give it a shot.

The Film

There’s fun/bad movies that I watch like The Room and many Godzilla films and then there’s the muck that just can’t make it even to that achievement. Where does I, Frankenstien fall? Let’s focus on the plot first to figure it out.

The movie starts out as a sort of sequel to the original Frankenstein. Like in the Novel, Frankenstein’s monster (played by Aaron Eckhart) murdered Frankenstein’s wife and then was pursued by Victor von Frankenstein who dies in that Arctic. First of all, it’s pretty weird to watch an action movie where the hero has murdered a completely innocent woman… so this helps lend itself to the un-likability of the monster in this flick.

TheHobbit_battleoffivearmies_1

What is it?

 

The final film in Peter Jackson’s trilogy for J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Who’s in it?

 

Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, and a whole lot of other people…like a super lot of people.  I might even have accidentally slipped into the film and not have known it.

What’s it about?

 

What?  You really don’t know?  Okay, it’s the final leg of Bilbo Baggins adventures with the company of dwarves that were out to reclaim their home of Erebor.  However, with the evil dragon driven from their home, word has reached across Middle-earth that the Lonely Mountain is now up for grabs and five armies seek to claim the riches outside and they are prepare to battle over it…and that’s how they got the title, little one!

The Best Female Character in Sci-Fi & Fantasy: ROUND 2

Brackets for round 2 of Best Female Character in Sci-Fi and Fantasy

What amazing battles! We had some very close votes, some runaway victories and plenty of surprises in round 1. Now you all have one week (through December 21) to vote for round 2. As a community, we will try to assess who the best female character in sci-fi and fantasy is. There’s plenty of wonderful contenders. Beyond even these 16 we had people decry the lack of characters from Farscape, Star Trek, Wonder Woman and many more. We’re right there with you! Our argument is there are TONS of amazing characters that are super popular and Hollywood shouldn’t be gun-shy about greenlighting films with strong female leads. But who is the best? The deepest, most well-rounded character? That’s something no one person can assess, so now it’s up to you. Read on for the round 2 matchups!

10 Genre Movies Set At Christmas (That Aren’t About Christmas)

Santa rides a rocket ship with an astronaut

We’ve all done the fun thing of mentioning movies like Die Hard or Lethal Weapon that are technically Christmas movies. But here at Robot’s Pajamas, we like to dig deeper. Here are ten genre movies (sci-fi, horror, superhero, etc.) that are set during Christmas. It’s pretty easy to forget any of these are set during Christmas because it’s not at the forefront, but they are. In no particular order, here are the ten you’ve probably seen but don’t think of as Christmas movies!

Transformers: Victory Episode 29: “Awaken! Victory Leo”

Autobots moved to Japan

We’re moving to Japan, everybody!

You didn’t miss an episode recap. Episode 28 was a clip show. So here we are, with Autobot leader Star Saber recovering/getting an upgrade and God Ginrai rebuilt as Victory Leo. The Decepticons are still just looking for energy to steal. And apparently the Autobots moved to Japan. How does that huge base move? The shuttle, sure. But the base? Did it roll all the way there? Did they have to pass through cities and towns? Was there a parade? I wish the show would spend an episode letting me know.
