Not just another summer sequel with Hamlet 2. Does Castle Crashers live up to its name? We discover a Traitor! Mario Super Sluggers swings for the fences. Plus, the good and bad of Warren Ellis
This week in Movies:
Alex, Dan, and Jeff may have crowned the funniest movie of the summer too soon! The Steve Coogan comedy, Hamlet 2, might just be a worthy successor to one of the best theater parodies of all time, Waiting for Guffman.
The new thriller, Traitor, is about a man suspected of being a terrorist. Find out if the guys are wit' 'em or again' 'em.
This week in Video Games:
The Wii launch title, Wii Sports, offered a fun, if simplistic baseball minigame. Now, Nintendo has expanded the concept and thrown its trademark characters into the mix with Mario Super Sluggers. Alex, Dan, and Jeff grab their wiimotes to knock this game out of the park.
The string of excellent Summer '08 downloadedable titles continues this week with The Behemouth's Castle Crashers . The guys endure the broken online mode to enjoy some retro-arcade goodness.
This week in Comics:
Warren Ellis' prolific career includes some of the most imaginitive and challenging comic book work of the last decade. Alex, Dan, and Jeff check out a couple of his most popular series, Planetary and Transmetropolitan.

The Totally Rad Show is Revision3's explosion of movie, video game, TV, and comics news and reviews. TRS was born in the depths of geek culture, at an epic game of Dungeons and Dragons in 2006. Alex Albrecht, host of Revision3's Diggnation, and Dan Trachtenberg, former host of Revision3's Geekdrome, met Jeff Cannata, former video game columnist, at the D&D table, and became fast friends. Intense debates over Star Wars characters, late night frag-fests in Gears of War, Heroes- and Lost-watching parties, and the sharing of dog-eared copies of Preacher graphic novels followed, leading the guys to one clear realization: This is the stuff we love. This stuff is totally rad. Individually, Alex, Dan, and Jeff had always wanted to find a show that approached geek culture with as much fervor as they did, that wasn't embarrassed to roll dice or dress like Jedi, that realized that nerd is the new cool. Together, they decided to make it. But one component was still missing. Luckily, they turned to uber-video god and bona-fide geek in his own right, Steve Koncelik, to help create a look and feel that was as rad as the subject matter. Several months, and hundreds of exploding fist-pumps later, the Totally Rad Show debuted on Revision3. Four dudes in a garage. One green screen. A cubic ass-ton of enthusiasm. The Totally Rad Show is all about the feeling of sharing a great new movie, or video game, or tv show, or comic with your buddies. It is about the excitement in finding a piece of entertainment you love, or the pain in realizing something isn't as rad as you had hoped. It is about finding friends who share your interests and get just as excited as you do. If it is out there and it is Rad, it is on the Totally Rad Show.
