November 27, 2012 - NEWS - More War Of The Worlds Reviews
Reviews continue for War Of The Worlds: Goliath, which seem to be similar to the previous reviews I mentioned. You can check out some of them here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. The general consensus is that the movie looks good, sounds good, and is well designed. But the story and character development are very simple, and is a bit rough technically with voice acting and some animation. However, overall the movie is well received and entertaining, as long as you're not expecting anything too deep.
November 16, 2012 - NEWS - War Of The Worlds Mixed Reviews
Reviews are starting to show up for War Of The Worlds: Goliath. It looks like it's getting mixed reviews. You can check out some of them here (starts 01:08:35), here, here, here, here, and here. Some of the positives are that it has good looking backdrops and machine animation, good 3D, good pacing, and great battle scenes. Some of the negatives are that it has too much action, needs more character development and emotion, a little too much over the top, poor character animation, cheesy dialogue, and poor open ended ending. Also, according to an interview with Digital News Asia, it looks like WotW:G won't be getting it's wide theatrical release in North America, like we hoped. Depending on how well the movie does in Malaysia, we'll probably see a limited theater release in North America before going to DVD/Blu-ray and Video On Demand.

November 12, 2011 - 10 Years
I started this Heavy Metal Magazine Fan Page on November 12, 2001. Now, 10 years later, I've decided to semi-retire the News portion of my site. I will also be removing any future unreleased projects, such as movies and games. I will also stop posting new issues of the magazine. The majority of the rest of my site will remain the same, focusing more on the history of Heavy Metal, rather then the future of the franchise. The reason for this change is that I'm looking to free up some of my own free time. I love doing this site. It's a hobby I enjoy. But keeping this site updated does take up a lot of time. However, my site won't be completely abandoned. By freeing up my updating time, it will give me more time to tidy up or expand the rest of my site. I may also add new things from time to time after they're released, such as new movies, or magazines. In the world of Heavy Metal, there are many things to look forward to, such as movies. Of course the new Heavy Metal movie with Robert Rodriguez, that has been quiet since the announcement in July. Metal Hurlant Chronicles is also quickly coming up (check out the newest trailer). It still needs to find a home in North America though. Europe will start seeing it April 2012. I'm not sure what's happened to the Barbarella remake. It's been quiet for over a year, and was in slow development even before then. Although Captain Sternn looks promising, as it's currently developing a 3 minute trailer to promote to studios. Fistful Of Blood has also been quiet for the last year. Although there's a new movie recently announced, called Sundown Seven. Could this be the same project, just updated? It will also have a graphic novel published by Heavy Metal at some point. And of course there's War Of The Worlds: Goliath. This is the one project I will keep posting news on, until it's released, which should be mid-2012.
November 11, 2011 - War Of The Worlds
Sorry, I've been a bit slow on the news front lately. Some new info on War Of The Worlds: Goliath is that Epic Pictures has picked up the movie for European and North American sales, set to release mid-2012. You can check out a new updated trailer for the movie on their site. Also, Mark Sheppard (Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural) has been added to the cast. Check out the WotW Facebook page for a lot of great new images and info.
