Maybe it was the fantastically long lead-in to this movie, or all the hype Disney's stellar marketing team built up around it's release, but I found myself slightly disappointed with their new Avengers: Age of Ultron. To be fair, this sequel had a lot to live up to. Not only was it expected to top 2012's Avengers, but there have been four other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies released between that year and 2015 - Iron Man 3, Captain... Read more

The Avengers: Age of Ultron opened in local cinemas last Wednesday, and to coincide with it's release, The Block SM City North Edsa is hosting an exhibit of life-sized statues of some characters from the movie.
The main stars of the exhibit are the statues of Captain America, Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, Iron Man and the Hulk.

In the US, Avengers: Age of Ultron is launching on May 1st. But here in the Philippines, the Age of Ultron party is in full swing. The movie launches today, April 22, 2015. So from now until it premieres in the rest of the world, the Age of Ultron celebration will be at a fever pitch. And this is how Marvel is celebrating.
Ultron will be invading ALL THE CURRENT MARVEL GAMES!
Out of all these games, only Marvel heroes is the... Read more

It's hard not to compare Netflix's first Marvel show, Daredevil, with Fox's Gotham. Both are based on superhero comics that are relatively well known, and both are kind of experimental in a way. The former is Marvel's first foray into video-on-demand programming through US Internet subscription service, Netflix, and the latter is a Batman show without Batman. However, both of them share a strong crime drama bent; they focus more on the crime and corruption in their cities, rather... Read more

There are only a few shows that catch my attention straight out of the gate. Even one of my favorite programs of all time, Firefly, didn't wow me when I first watched the pilot episode. So when Hollywood comes out with a winner like this one, I feel I need to spread the word. iZombie is a series that airs Mondays on CW, the home of other great comic-based tent pole shows, The Flash and Arrow. It's a little... Read more

Transistor is a game that I never would have tried if not for the perks I get from my PS+ subscription and a recommendation from a friend (Yes, Pao, I mean you). On the last few days that it was free on PS+, a buddy of mine told me about Transistor and how awesome it was supposed to be. And just in nick of time, I was able to snag it up absolutely free.
In Transistor, you play as Red, a... Read more

Yes, Disney may have acquired hot property like Marvel and Star Wars in the last decade, but that doesn’t mean they have lost their touch when it comes to making a good, old-fashioned fairy tale come to life in a brand new way. After their smash hit Frozen (2013), Disney explores the story of another formidable princess with the live-action retelling of Cinderella (2015).

A few weeks ago, I got an idea for a post here at GeekOut.ph thanks to an email I received from Carmudi. I thought to myself "Man, it'd be cool if Carmudi had every conceivable car on their listing." With that rattling in my head, I listed down what cars from fiction would just be awesome to drive down the Skyway while blasting some Katy Perry or some Taylor Swift. Let's go take a look at that list right now!
Let's get... Read more

Do you guys remember the Christmas guide last 2013? We mentioned the Iron Man Gauntlet on the list. Though Iron Man 3 was a bit of letdown, the Mark 42 armor was pretty cool. We found one store where it was available but it quickly disappeared.
Well, good news - it's back on the market for only P1,620 at Abubot.ph! Here's their write-up:

Starting the year with a blast! Got my hands on the latest Marvel Legends figures by Hasbro and man, I love this wave. Before I forget, I want to give a very big shout out to Basti Golez and Kramer Toy Warden for securing me a set

Toy reviews come a dime a dozen, but there are only a few really worth watching. Unfortunately, I wouldn't call mine any good, but there are a few Filipino toy reviewers that I really look up to. You've got guys like Dennis "Slangards" Domingo and Dominic "Advocate Pinoy" Dimagmaliw. And today, I think I'll add a new guy to that list of awesome Pinoy toy reviewers.
Today, I watched Japoskee's review of Stealth Tech Donatello. It is literally one of the... Read more

The one thing I've always frustrated me with the PS3 was the inability to record gameplay or even take screenshots. If you wanted to capture any screenie or footage, you'd have to hook your PS3 up to a capture card, which doesn't capture in HD, if I'm not mistaken. I recall it was due to their harsh anti-piracy tactics. I guess Sony peeps were afraid people would just capture HD video off Blu-rays being played.
It was something people did not... Read more

What I love about the current direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that they're slowly taking relatively unknown superheroes (at least, unknown to non-comic book readers) and making them household names. And they're doing it the right way - by treating their characters right. The reason why people fall in love with these characters in the first place is because of who they've been built up to be over the years in thousands of pages of comic books. Marvel... Read more

Last year I wrote out every single movie I wanted to see this year at GeekOut.ph. Despite my best efforts, I've only been able to see some of the films I posted about on that article. Some were moved to later release dates (Jupiter Ascending and Tomorrowland), others were put on the back burner after some pretty awful reviews (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transcendence), but I was able to see a good number of them in the theater, which is...

One of the biggest stories surrounding the upcoming 'Man Of Steel' sequel, 'Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice,' is that Wonder Woman is joining the story. Naturally this idea has been celebrated as the first appearance of a full-fledged female superhero in modern film, as well as a general expansion of DC's cast of characters on the big screen. For those reasons, many will probably love Wonder Woman no matter how she's depicted by director Zack Snyder and his crew... Read more

Here we are again, the zombie apocalypse. At this point of the trend’s life cycle, a game has to have a gargantuan amount of innovation and entertainment to reel me in and keep me hooked. Dead of Winter does just that. It gets the zombie apocalypse theme and runs with it beyond the finish line and goes where no similarly-themed game, or any other game for that matter, has gone before. It is exploding with theme, and narrative. YES. NARRATIVE... Read more
