Hey-Oh, what’s up!?  Another update on how we’re progressing here on Banana Scoop with a couple of new details on what we’ll be working on for the next week or so.  It’s primarily art announcements where I’m talking about some new icons and pictures I want to replace here and there.  The biggest story of the week is how we recently reached 100,000 views overall which is a big deal for a small blog like ourselves.  Check out the full update below!

An Incredible Marker, our 100,000th Hit

Banana Scoop has some fantastic news to share with you all!  It has received over 100,000 hits in total since it’s first conception!  We’re incredibly blessed and over the year ago I started this blog, there have been a combination of both good and bad times.  The older times where, I was all alone with deadlines all over the place and the good times where I was fortunate enough to be Freshly Pressed, twice.

My graphic novel obsession has begun.  I recently dropped $70 on new books [a considerable amount for a college student], on a bundle of new graphic novels/comic books.  Barnes and Noble’s online store had a buy 2 DC comics, get a third one free was too much of a deal and I had to buy 6.  When they came in, despite being in the middle of Mockingjay (a review later this week), I made some of them a priority in reading.  In this article, I include my initial impressions of graphic novels and a relatively spoiler free impression of the ones I did read.

My New Graphic Novels

  • League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 1 & 2
  • Watchmen
  • The Killing Joke
  • Dark Victory

This is a long time coming.  I’ve recently been getting more and more into books.  This truly started around my birthday in February when I bought all 5 existing Song of Ice and Fire novels and crushed 4/5 of them in about 4 months.  Now-a-days, I’ve been trying to finish the 5th book and I can’t stop but already get excited to start writing about it.  Then I realized that I don’t actually have a books section to put it in and putting it under ‘television’ where Game of Thrones technically exists wouldn’t seem right.  So instead, I’m creating a new category for the occasion.  Below, I’ve posted some other novels, comic books, and graphic novels that I’m also heavily interested in once I wrap up Game of Thrones.  I’ll be more than happy to take all of your recommendations!

Sometimes movies need to be cut for the final release because of time constraints or test screens.  But this cut can certainly leave out a lot of plot points that are key to the film’s consistency and flow.  Unreality has compiled a list of Directors Cut’s [Versions of the movies that have been recompiled by the vision of the director] that fix what were once thought of as broken and incoherent movies.  Maybe you’ll think twice before you say, “”Check out the link below.

Director Cuts Significantly Superior to the Theatrical Releases

I love superhero movies.  Everyone loves a great super hero movie.  The classic good vs. evil story line that include great fight sequences with inspiring stories about a character rising up against conflict and succeeding.  They’re almost inspiring enough to make the regular audience think, ‘I could do that, I could fight evil, and protect the citizens.  Why not me?’  Or maybe that’s just me.  I’ve always believed being a superhero couldn’t be that hard.  Dressing up, having an arch enemy, and overcoming evil.  Now I’ve never actually tried to be a superhero[except maybe once when I tried to make my own superhero movie when I was 15, but that’s a story for another time], but Hollywood has a couple of interpretations of what would happen if regular folk tried to become superheroes.  Hit the jump for when Hollywood took a crack at when regular people become Super Heroes.  Spoilers Beware.
