The Final Countdown: Mourning Colbert, Minor Inventions and PS4 and Xbox One Sales

Published by under Final Countdown

colbert

Go here to see why we should mourn Colbert.

“The human condition is the art of holding completely contradictory emotional responses in perfect tension in one’s heart. So I’m ecstatic that Stephen Colbert got the nod and gets to go to the big leagues, so to speak. I’m not one to sing Morrissey over someone getting the big promotion. But at the same time, it makes me deeply sad.”

Cosplay of the Day: Don’t Mess with Mecha-Chu

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

mecha

What happens when Pokemon meets Warhammer 40K? Why, Mecha-Chu is born, of course.

This badass costume was spotted at Supanova in Australia by Furbeach, and there’s one more photo below.

I think my favorite are the Pokeball shoulders and the string of Badge-ribbons on his chest. I’m half surprised he’s not toting Meowth’s severed head on his belt, but perhaps that would have been taking things a bit too far. Continue Reading »

Super Mario Brothers Theme Being Played on Wine Glasses and a Frying Pan

Published by under Videos

We here at Unreality are very much into the finer things in life. Among those finer things is a nice bottle or glass of wine. Little did we know however, that someone would take some perfectly nice wine glasses (and a frying pan) and make some amazing art out of them. We say art because the display you are about to see is nothing short of art. We’re sure that all of you are quite familiar with one of if not the most successful video games of all time: Super Mario Brothers.

While the game itself has an endless supply of references, famous levels, pictures, and characters worth repeating, the theme of the game might be one of the most recognizable themes in the history of games, movies, TV, you name it. Countless fans have tried to alter the theme into various medleys using multiple instruments and tools.

Every once in a while something amazing comes along where a new spin on the Super Mario Brothers theme is created. This video is such an amazing thing. We present to you this guy playing the Super Mario Brothers theme on wine glasses and a frying pan.

Mike Wrobel is Back With a Few New ’90s Game of Thrones Entries

Published by under Images,Television

game 90

You will all remember Mike Wrobel’s series of 90s-themed Game of Thrones characters. Well, he’s continued to make them all this time, and now that season four has rolled around, I figured I’d go back and scoop up the ones I missed.

There are I think five that I don’t remember posting before, my favorite being the sweater-wearing Tormund above. You can see the others below and honestly, I’m not sure what characters are left to feature. Maybe new ones like Oberyn Martell and Daario. Check out the rest below: Continue Reading »

Getting to Know Your Big Screen Mixed Martial Arts Stars

Published by under Lists,Movies

mma

It’s funny that while politicians are still trying to convince the public that mixed martial arts is akin to “human cockfighting”, the stars of the sport are creeping into the mainstream more and more. Say what you want about the virtues (or lack thereof) of having two trained fighters test their skills against one another in sanctioned competition for our entertainment, but one thing that is undisputable is that MMA has some of the most colorful personalities of any sport in any era.

With so much of our onscreen entertainment being dedicated to people attacking one another, it’s only natural that the casting directors of the world look to some of the biggest badasses in the world to see if they can translate those skills from the ring/cage to the silver screen. With the magnetic personalities of leading actors and the physical skills of the best stuntmen, it’s only logical. So far, the results have been pretty positive.

The MMA scene features a lot of people with really entertaining dispositions, so expect the word “charisma” to come up a lot.  Beyond their skills as real life action stars, a lot of these people were chosen for their roles based on their endearing or outrageous personalities and the potential crossover appeal that represents. Let’s answer some questions about some of the most prominent mixed martial artists to make the jump to the big screen. Continue Reading »

5 Pieces Of Pop Culture I’m Embarrassed To Like (But Still Do)

Published by under Lists,Oddly Enough

080211_dark_laptop

Everyone has their guilty pleasures.  If you love fiction as much as I do, it’s almost inevitable that along the way you’re going to fall for some real clunkers.  When a TV show does one thing right, when it captures your interest in the way that makes your socks roll up and down, you’ll overlook some pretty horrendous flaws.  Looking at you, Heroes.

Sometimes it goes beyond that, though.  Sometimes you like a show, a movie, a band, a book series, or a video game for no earthly reason… or at least no reason that you’ll admit to yourself.  Come journey into the depths of masochism with me as I examine one item from each category that I’d never admit I actually liked to my friends in a bar, even if they were shoving bamboo into my fingernails, yet will happily disclose to everyone on the internet for some reason.  (The reason is comedy.)

Sam Spratt’s Beautiful Queen of Dragons

Published by under Images,Television

sam spratt

Sam Spratt is no stranger to this site, and has more talent at 25 years old than I do uh, at a few years old than that. The guy is an absolutely incredible artist with corporate clients ranging from National Geographic to Game Informer to FX.

Today, he’s turned his attention to Game of Thrones and has released this gorgeous Daenerys Targaryen piece. I’m not sure if it was for HBO directly, but they should damn well pay him a bunch for it and use it somehow. Really incredible work, and I’d love to see him do more of the cast.

Sparrow v. Loki

Published by under Images,Movies

(click to enlarge)

Jack Sparrow and Loki don’t have too terribly much in common other than both being charming and owned by Disney, but here they are going head to head in a treasure vault as imagined by artist Imbong Hadisoebroto.

Buried in the background are a whole host of Easter Eggs from both their universes, and a few others. See if you can spot them all! It’s more fun than Where’s Waldo? Well, at least for me, because I was colorblind and his damn red stripes meant nothing to me.

The Morning Link: Five Types of Movie Adaptation That Must Be Stopped

Published by under Morning Link

public

“Audiences love familiar stories. When we’re deciding what movie to see, we have a tendency to breeze past original plots in favor of watching Peter Parker discover his puberty superpowers for the 18th time. The people who make our movies have grasped this, and that’s why cinemas are crammed with adaptations of books, comics, television shows, foreign movies, old movies, new movies, movies that came out in 2010, breakfast cereals, and so on.”

The Final Countdown: Game of Thrones Recasting, TV Show Pregnancies and Halo Composer Fired

Published by under Final Countdown

recast

Go here to see how Game of Thrones was recast.

Game of Thrones has gone through as many actors as Walder Frey has wives. There’s been three Mountains, two Berics, two Daarios — hell, Emilia Clarke wasn’t even the original Daenerys Targaryen. In Sunday’s episode, “The Lion and the Rose,” the new Tommen made his debut, and now he’s 37 years old. Margaery’s one lucky lady. Anyway, let’s take a look at the complete history of Game of Thrones recastings, beginning with a Mountain of a man.”

Disney Firefly is Just Plain Shiny

Published by under Images,Television

I’m sort of in love with this Disney version of Firefly, like that’s any surprise. Artist Stephen Byrne has transformed the series into animated form, with nary a princess to be found.

I actually like how he’s fully adapted the characters into Disney archetypes, with River literally being a little girl, and Book uh, a little wizard, or something. But both fit well. Wash looks suspiciously like a blonde Joss Whedon, and I can’t tell if that’s on purpose or not.
