The Totally Rad Show


Some found footage on Cloverfield. Is the Star Trek prequel preview promising? The new Turok demo's a dinosaur. Bionic Commando in 2 dimensions. Plus, the boys review The Boys.

This week in Movies:

The enigmatic monster film, Cloverfield has finally been released. Steve knows this must be recorded, so he whips out his camera while Alex, Dan, and Jeff try to survive the attack (and the motion sickness).

Attached to that very same film is the brand new teaser for JJ Abrams' upcoming Star Trek prequel. Does it make the guys want to explore the universe with young Kirk, Spock, and Bones?

This week in Video Games:

Games based on the comic book character, Turok the Dinosaur Hunter, date back to the Nintendo 64, but it has been a while since they've been considered AAA. Alex, Dan, and Jeff check out the demo for the new PS3 Turok to see if it can recapture some of the series' former glory.

The guys have already weighed in on their anticipation for the upcoming 3D Bionic Commando game. But Capcom has even more in store for the series. Bionic Commando: Rearmed is a 2D remake for XBLA and PSN that might be ever more exciting to Totally Rad guys.

This Week in Comics:

One of Dan and Jeff's favorite comic books is The Preacher, by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. One of Ennis' newest projects is The Boys, which he promises will "out-Preacher Preacher". The guys all check out the first trade to see if it fulfills such high expectations. For in-depth discussion of Preacher be sure to watch iFanboy episode 51.

American Splendor artist, Ed Piskor's new self-published comic, Wizzywig, is based on real-life hackers of the late 70's. Alex, Dan, and Jeff let their geek flags fly as they're drawn in to the phone-phreaking adventure.
