Cowboys & Aliens is the major release this weekend, and you can believe I will be there to see it on the big screen. Not since the days of the Radio Ranch (1935, Gene Autry versus the aliens living underground and hiding from the cowboys) have we seen a story like this. If you are not already familiar with it, check out the Phantom Empire series, which you can watch online. It is nice to see these classic stories coming around again to entertain us all.
Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D is an animated movie built from the Machinema underpinnings of a world class game, much as Final Fantasy was. You get one shot at seeing it on the big screen, on Tuesday, the 26th of July (yes, that would be tomorrow) at 7:30PM local time. It is being presented as a one time movie event, part of the Fathom Events package, where a live presentation happens in one location, and gets broadcast via satellite to movie theaters across North America. They also use this for Opera, Sporting Competitions, Business Meetings, and church services, so it is nice to know they are using it for something worth the bandwidth.
