Here are the quick hits from the world of movies, TV, video games, energy drinks, toe socks, whatever catches our fancy.

Movies

Pixar

Yes, we led with Pixar two days in a row. Yesterday, it was because The Incredibles and Ratatouille were being re-released in 3D. Today, it is because Brad Bird, creator, writer and director of the first Incredibles is writing the script for a sequel. If I were not a large man, I would be jumping for joy.

Maleficent

Disney has released a new trailer for Maleficent and it further makes me feel indifferent about the movie. Why do we feel the need make bad guys likable? Sometimes people are fu**ed up. Let them be that, not some person who was good and became bad because they were made that way by someone more evil.

Peanuts

Many (like me) were worried when it was announced that a movie would be made from Peanuts. After watching this first teaser trailer I am hopeful that it will retain the spirit of the comic strip and cartoon. There is something about hearing the Peanuts theme that brings a smile.

TV

Gotham

Here is the first look of Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot in Gotham. Another notch in the win column.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Well, I was excited about Deathlok, until the TV budget showed up. New Power Rangers are a go.

Games

SimCity

The game finally gets updated with offline play today. Only a year late and when most have given up on the game.

UFC

EA Sports has released a new trailer for their MMA game coming to Xbox One and PS4 this spring. It is the first extensive look at the graphics in-game and it is looking damn impressive.
