Video of the Day: "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" 'Sizzle' Reel


     Coming soon from the mind of legendary animator/artist Bruce Timm ('Batman: The Animated Series" & 'Justice League') comes the next big DC Comics animated TV series. "Green Lantern" will feature Josh Keaton (Peter Parker/Spider-man, 'Spectacular Spider-man') giving voice to Hal Jordan, Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814, as he travels to other worlds and assists his fellow Green Lanterns against the evil Red Lantern Corps and their leader, Atrocitus.

          And from the look of this 'sizzle reel' trailer, it doesn't look half bad! The designs of the characters, buildings and assorted backgrounds bits look to be done in the traditional Timm-style. And the CGI animation looks nice and polished, not at all 'clunky' as some CGI cartoons are apt to be. Definitely looking forward to this one!

          "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" will debut in an hour-long special on November 11th, 2011, with the series debut coming in Spring 2012.

Authentic Geek, The PODCAST -- Episode 09 - "Inside the Actor's Swagger"

Episode 09 - "Inside the Actor's Swagger"
(Click the above link to download the episode or click HERE to stream it)

          The Internet defines 'swagger' as "How one presents him or her self to the world. Swagger is shown from how the person handles a situation. It can also be shown in the person's walk." And today, the Authentic Geeks discuss those actors who they feel display copious amounts of the stuff! A trio of sci-fi legends, a legendary caped crime-fighter, a drunken scoundrel, the world's greatest pitchman, the coolest space ship captain besides Kirk and the only man capable of portraying both a Jedi master and Col. John 'Hannibal' Smith!! All this and a few honourable mentions too!

          POINT OF ORDER: Yes, the Geeks did think of adding the master of the 'boomstick', Bruce Campbell to the discussion. No, you can't track the Geeks down and beat them senseless for leaving him out. They bruise kind of easily, y'know. And, YES, Mr. Campbell will get his own spotlight episode in the future.
