The Geeks Of Doom Round Up 12: The Amazing Spider-Man and The Beastie Boys

The twelfth episode of The Geeks Of Doom Round Up is here, and Greg takes a look at the underplayed third trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield and directed by Marc Webb. For our music selection this week, Andy pays tribute to Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys who sadly passed away this week, with "Fight For Your Right To Party".

Later, we take a look at an awesome Metal cover of the music from Doctor Who, by phenomenal guitarist Eric Calderone aka 331Erock. We also take a glance at the new intriguing comic series by Brian Churilla called The Secret History of D. B. Cooper.
