Pitch Perfect 2 Headlines This Week’s Trailers

Published by under Lists,Movies

Pitch Perfect 2

It’s been a month since our daughter was born and the wife and I are finally breaking out of the house and going to go see a movie! WOO HOO! *whistles the Hunger Games theme out loud to celebrate* … Yes, that’s right, I’m going to go see the Hunger Games finale part 1. I was upset with the first film for falling flat and not delivering on what my hopes were. (as every film obviously needs to pander to me of course) Katniss’ second outing was far better and a lot more entertaining than I was anticipating due to how the first film left me. Now were on the verge of attacking the Capitol and I feel that the cliff hanger of part 1 will leave us either at the mountain or after it’s been taken down. Regardless, I’m holding out hope that they can finish this trilogy (do we still consider it a trilogy?) in grand fashion and give the fans of the books a decent send off. Stay tuned for the review!

It’ll be interesting to see what trailers might be shown in front of the movie tonight.

Let’s do this.

Come See How Outrageously Bad the New Sonic The Hedgehog Game Is

Published by under Video Games

sonic boom rise

We’re at a very, very strange place in the lifespan of poor Sonic the Hedgehog. After being king of the video game universe, or at least crown prince after Mario, Sonic has now seen his series become a rollercoaster of quality, racing between “pretty good” and “hilariously awful.” Guess where we are right now?

Well, we’re at the point where Sonic is now having a video game made out of a TV show which was of course, made out of his former video games. That would be “Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric,” and it’s far and away one of the worst reviewed games of the year, if not the past few years. The best part? It’s only on Wii U, SEGA’s former eternal rival. Continue Reading »

A Great Collaboration of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Tribute Art

Published by under Images

Pokemon_Art_1

Recently I came across an amazing piece of work by a Brazilian artist on Deviant Art who was paying tribute to a character from Pokemon Omega Ruby.  As it turns out this was only one image in a bunch that were created as a tribute to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.  So I decided to share the collaboration of works made by these Brazilian artists as a tribute to the new Pokémon games.   We’ve also included credits to the Facebook pages of each artist.  Hope you enjoy!

Benedict Cumberbatch Getting the Meme Treatment

Published by under Images

cumberbatch_meme_01

Everyone loves Benedict Cumberbatch these days (including us).   His latest clip of him doing 11 impersonations in one minute furthered our little man crush on the guy, but one of his latest photos made it really hard to resist turning it into a meme.   As you can see, Cumberbatch is getting swarmed by a bunch of girls as he sits in the back of a car.  The internet decided to replace said girls with other stuff that would greet him outside his window.  Check out the results after the jump….

Why The Muppets (2011) Actually Worked

Published by under Editorials,Movies

Muppets

Before watching it for myself, I simply couldn’t fathom why 2011’s The Muppets was as popular and as well-received a film as it ended up being.  The Muppets were those fuzzy, rainbow-colored puppets from the seventies that my grandmother liked to watch reenact A Christmas Carol, Treasure Island and The Wizard of Oz.  After being cancelled in the early eighties, they parleyed their popularity into a string of increasingly modest grossing films before falling out of the mainstream entirely at the end of the last century.

Reviewing Foxcatcher Before it Comes Out

Published by under Movies,Reviews

Foxcatcher

It’s no secret that I was a fan of Foxcatcher after watching that first teaser trailer. (you’ll find me gushing about it here, here and oh here) Hailing it as my most anticipated movie of this year and giving it accolades like “Oscar winner” etc. was something that I had grown accustomed to and still hold firm on. It had a limited release on November 14th of this year but now for whatever reason they’re releasing the film as a “slow opener” across the US in January of 2015. They just want to see me squirm, I know it.

Is Constantine the Best Comic Show on Television?

Published by under Comics,Reviews,Television

constantine

Comic book culture is on a major roll these days with an almost constant stream of films and television series making household names out of their characters. But let’s forget about movies and just look at TV. We’ve got The Flash, Arrow, The Walking Dead, Agents of SHIELD, Gotham, and no less than five new Marvel shows upcoming as Netflix originals. And that’s just live action series.

All of the shows I mentioned get discussed in an almost water cooler fashion amongst both nerds and mainstream viewers, but you know what? I’d take Constantine over all of them. It’s got the mythos, it’s got the source material, it’s got the perfect lead, it’s got a great mix of humor and grittiness, and it’s arguably got more potential at this point than every other comic-based show on the air. It was put together by David Goyer, the co-architect of the Dark Knight and Blade trilogies. That’s got to count for something (or at least 2/3 of something). Plus Neil Marshall directed the pilot. The talent is there. Continue Reading »

Will Finding Dory Live Up To Finding Nemo?

Published by under Movies

Finding Dory

Already pushed back to 2016 from it’s original 2015 date, is Finding Dory going to dry up before it ever hits the cinema screen? Finding Nemo is up there on my list of great animated movies and I, along with countless others, were surprised that it took this long for the sequel to get a green light. You can’t tell me that they haven’t had the story and ideas already waiting in the wings of Pixar studios just dying to be released to the world. It’s not as if Pixar hasn’t been successful with sequels before, so why the precaution this time around with arguably one of the most celebrated of their films?

The Sound Room of Hans Zimmer is Amazing

Published by under Images

hans_zimmer_studio_01

He’s one of the most if not most prolific movie composer of the last 100 years.  Hans Zimmer has done the soundtrack or been a composer to nearly 300 works on film.    You may best know him for doing the score to movies like The Lion King, The Dark Knight, Rainman, and about a zillion others.  He has a very specific style and if you listen closely during films you can sometimes pick him off and know it’s Hans doing the score.  If you’re going to be doing the score to all these amazing films you might as well have an amazing studio right?  Check out Hans Zimmer’s musical digs after the jump

BioShock Fan Art That’s as Good as the Game Itself

Published by under Video Games

bioshock1

BioShock has been one of the defining game series of this generation, and it’s one of the few that have propelled games into “art,” though the definition of that word can be debated to death for all eternity. But BioShock was one of the most prominent series to take on serious literary and philosophical concepts in a way that manifested themselves in both the worlds of Rapture and Columbia. We will probably see another BioShock game at some point, but with Irrational mostly scattered to the winds, it won’t be the same, and the original game and Infinite will be the two lasting memories of the series for years to come. Probably not BioShock 2. We don’t talk about Bioshock 2.

Naturally, the game has spawned legions of fans over the years, and as such, there’s a huge community producing fantastic fan art related to the series. The art deco style of the game is simply gorgeous and lends itself to imitation. Or at least it would if I knew what “art deco” meant. (Googles). Oh yeah, that’s pretty accurate.

In any case, I’ve scoured the internet for a few of my specific favorite pieces from the game which you can check out in gallery form below. And trust me, I had to sift through far, far too many Elizabeth hentai adaptations. The first time is funny, the seven hundredth time is gross. But yeah, much respect to all the talented artists who managed to restrain themselves to produce actual art. Continue Reading »

5 Classic Movies I Couldn’t Trick Myself Into Liking

Published by under Movies

full-metal-jacket

Classic movies are classics for a reason.  They’re widely recognized as important movies, movies of quality, movies that defined a moment in time.  You can quibble about ranking, you can debate the way they stand up to the test of time, and you can argue about their overall quality, but it’s tough to deny that classic movies are important.

But when it comes to the experience of actually sitting down and watching a movie, things get a little more subjective.  Where you watch something, when you watch, who you watch it with, what’s going on in your life when you watch it – all of these can have an effect on your viewing experience.  And sometimes, a movie with great elements – plot, characters, acting – can, for whatever reason, simply not coalesce into a coherent whole.

When this happens, and the movie is one of those famous ones, a clear Top 100, a real classic, it’s usually better to never bring it up in conversation.  Or, if it comes up, to just fake it.  Trust me, you’ve never experienced Purgatory until you’ve had a 15-minute conversation with two moderately drunk film majors about why you’re an idiot because you didn’t get Repulsion.
