Is Mirror's Edge worth a leap of faith? Which one of us will be Left 4 Dead? The new Need for Speed: just Burnout for babies? Is Special special? Should u c JCVD?
This week in Movies:
Alex, Dan and Jeff take a look at 2 movies this week that aren't the big blockbusters. The first is Special, a super-hero movie unlike any other.
The second is the Jean-Claude Van Damme's smei-autobiographical drama, JCVD.
Could both these movies be worthwhile alternatives to Twilight?
This week in Video Games:
Mirror's Edge does a rare thing in video gaming these days: it tries something new. Alex, Dan, and Jeff take on this first-person parkour simulator to see if the concept actually works.
The long running Need for Speed series continues this fall with Need for Speed: Undercover, borrowing several concepts from Criterion's Burnout Paradise. Is it a solid alternative, or sad imitation?
The newest game from Valve is a 4-player co-operative shooter set during the Zombie Apocalypse. Watch the 4 TRS guys give it a go, and see who gets Left 4 Dead

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.
