Warning! Spoilers below for Bates Motel!

Last week was the episode we’ve been waiting for since the beginning of Bates Motel. We finally got THE SHOWER SCENE! Except in a unique twist it’s not Marion Crane (Rihanna) who takes the wrath of Norman Bates, but rather Sam Loomis (Austin Nichols). Loomis had been the bane of Norman’s existence this season, cheating on lonely hardware store-owning wife Madeleine (Isabelle McNally) and using the motel for his lusty affairs with Marion, who innocently believed him to be planning a life with her. Freddie Highmore continues to be Emmy bait this season, his scenes with Rihanna in Room 1 are frantic and unnerving. We are watching his Norman Bates fully unravel and as he loses his grip, Norma (Vera Farmiga) tightens hers. Now accepting his mother dead, Norman is forced to accept he needs Norma with him, to help him do the things he can’t or won’t. But for now, they need to dispose of a body…

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

One thing is for sure, Luc Besson really likes to think outside the box. That is pretty clear in what we have been seeing in the marketing campaign for his new film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. A new trailer dropped this morning, giving us another look at the space opera The Professional director has created. Some even call the film the spiritual successor to The Fifth Element. Judging by the looks of things, that is very true.

Check out the trailer below.

Warning! Spoilers below for the last 2 episodes of Bates Motel!

Approaching the series finale of A&E’s Bates Motel, we finally caught up to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic last week with the official introduction of Marion Crane (Rihanna). Unlike the original film, Sam Loomis (Austin Nichols) is already married and Marion is the unknowing other woman. Annoyed by a crap job with few prospects, she absconds with $400,000 and heads out from Seattle to White Pine Bay to be with her man. Except when Sam can’t sneak away from his actual wife Madeleine (Isabelle McNally), Marion is forced to take to refuge at… well, you guessed it. Norman (Freddie Highmore) is dealing with the possibilities of Romero (Nestor Carbonell) showing up at any second after escaping prison, and more importantly, he is struggling with the reality that Norma(n) has been taking over his body for longer periods of time. It’s the beginning of the end…

As we reach the midway point of the final season of A&E’s Bates Motel, Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) is struggling to deal with the walls closing in around him. Mother (Vera Farmiga) refuses to let him make his own decisions, and after telling off Chick (Ryan Hurst), he ends up begging for his friendship. This after Chick gave Caleb (Kenny Johnson) a viking funeral! There’s a new sheriff in town who is starting to poke around, and brings warnings for Norman as Romero (Nestor Carbonell) has escaped custody. Then there is the trickiest of all situations, as Norman gets closer to local store owner Madeleine Loomis (Isabelle McNally), but alas Mother inevitably will ruin that.

Movie Review: Battleship

Battleship Movie PosterBattleship
Directed by Peter Berg
Starring Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, Rihanna, Tadanobu Asano
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13
Release Date: May 18, 2012

Prepare To Be Boarded…
More Like Bored-ed

Battleship was first released by the Milton Bradley Company in 1943 as the pad-and-pencil game, Broadsides: the Game of Naval Strategy, and then as a traditional board game in 1967. Of course, if you’re reading Geeks Of Doom, you’re probably most familiar with the 1989 Electronic Talking Battleship and the classic catchline, “You sunk my battleship!”

After the success of toys-to-films franchises like Transformers and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, toy mega-giant Hasbro reviewed its catalog and selected Battleship as its next project, with director Peter Berg (Hancock, Friday Night Lights) at the helm. In the film adaptation, NASA discovers an extrasolar, Earth-like planet with conditions suitable for life. Using a high-tech communications array in Hawaii, NASA transmits a signal to the far-off planet in an attempt to make contact with potential intelligent life forms.

Watch Now: New ‘Battleship’ Trailer Promises Massive Destruction and Mindless Fun
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Battleship Banner

Yet another new trailer for Universal Pictures’ sea-going alien invasion extravaganza Battleship has hit the web boasting more large-scale mayhem and extraterrestrial menaces that vaguely resemble Master Chief to make the last Transformers movie look like a German indie film.

You can watch the video here below.

Just about every CG-enhanced money shot in Peter Berg‘s board game-based sci-fi adventure has been crammed into these headache-inducing two minutes. The movie’s release is two months away so at this point anyone interested in seeing it has already made up their mind. Battleship looks like decent summer entertainment, nothing more.

Battleship opens on May 18, 2012.
