It’s been a busy week here at Reel Goddess HQ! But alas, now it’s Friday and the weekend is almost upon us. There’s some good stuff in the theaters right now and I’m planning on hitting up Hanna and Source Code this weekend so look for those reviews next week. Meanwhile, on to the Goodie Wrap.
Products / Replicas:
Viper II Artisan Replica: I’m not much of a collector of anything these days. I moved around so much as a kid I learned to travel light. If I was able to drop a dime on anything my little heart desired however, I would drop a dime, or actually 14,990 of them on this. It’s an artisan replica of the Viper Mark II from Battlestar Galactica. Yeah yeah, I know, BSG again! But the craftsmanship is amazing! It even comes with burn marks! How cool is that??

Star Trek Retro Movie Poster Set: Naturally, as I perused Qmxonline I found other things that I would love to spend my hard-earned cash on. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned how I love the old retro type posters. Well I found this set of Star Trek posters that are awesome and pretty to boot. One of these days, I’ll have my Geek Cave and these will be proudly displayed! (via Qmxonline.com)
Gunbrella: When I first saw this it was on a UK based site, but after searching around, I’ve found it on a couple of US sites. I’m not much of an umbrella carrier, but I would make an exception for this one. I. Love. It! (via Gunbrella.co.uk)
Ham Solo: This is a prime example of someone with entirely too much time on their hands. There really isn’t anything else to say except that I’m now a little hungry. Behold….Ham Solo. (via That’s Nerdalicious)
Did you ever wonder what a sequel to When Harry Met Sally would look like? Well apparently the folks over at Funny or Die did and decided to make a trailer. Billy Crystal is back along with Helen Mirren, Adam Scott, Rob Reiner, and loads of others. This shows Billy Crystal and Rob Reiner pitching a sequel and it goes from there. This is good for a laugh but due to language and…..other stuff is NSFW and probably isn’t for kids either.

Jeremy Renner has been tapped to pick up where Matt Damon left off with the Borne franchise. Both Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass stepped away from the franchise but the next installment, The Borne Legacy is moving forward. This isn’t a sequel, or a reboot however. The story takes place in the Borne universe but will be an independent story which gives Damon the option to come back and reprise his original role if he so desires. I’m not against this casting. I like Renner well enough and he’s proven that he’s quite capable of handling these types of roles. I loved the Borne trilogy and will be keeping an eye on this one.
If you didn’t get to see Top Gun in the theaters well now’s your chance! The film is celebrating its 25th (yep, 25 folks!) anniversary with a two-day engagement only at AMC theaters. I did see Top Gun in the theater but I just might have to get tickets and go back. You can find a list of theaters here.
I haven’t seen Clive Owen in anything recently and that’s a damned shame. He needs to do more. That is all.
I hate that both Being Human series are ending. But I can’t wait for Dr. Who to come back and Game of Thrones to start.
Now that Netflix is finally going to offer Mad Men on Instant, I can see what all the this hubba-ballo is about. I’ve heard it’s a great show so I’m going to check it out. I also heard that the next season isn’t coming back until 2012 which give me plenty of time to get caught up. Although if I had followed it faithfully, I’d be pissed at having to wait so long. It’s like the writer’s strike all over again.
That about covers it this week folks. Tune in tomorrow for the trailer wrap and I hope to have some more reviews up next week. Have a great weekend!Tags: Adam Scott, AMC Theaters, Battlestar Galactica, Being Human, Billy Crystal, BSG, Clive Owen, Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Gunbrella, Ham Solo, Han Solo, Jeremy Renner, Mad Men, Matt Damon, Netflix, Paul Greengrass, posters, Rob Reiner, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Borne Legacy, The Borne Trilogy, Top Gun, Viper Mark II, When Harry Met Sally
