The Slow Burn of BoJack Horseman’s First Season

Published by under Best of the Web

todd-bojack

At first, BoJack Horseman is a fairly simplistic, consistently clever little satire of Hollywood superficiality, a familiar story told through the lens of the absurd world it was set in. BoJack, a former 1990s sitcom actor (on the long-running, thoroughly mediocre Horsin’ Around) and current washout, partied and philandered around his mansion and LA, consistently surrounded by reminders of who he once was; from “Chapter One” to the season’s seventh episode “Say Anything”, BoJack is a series of well-trodden stories about a horse-man’s mid-life crisis as he tries to explore the most successful (and darkest) periods of his life with the ghost writer of his memoir, Diane (a woman he’s slowly falling in love with, as well).

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies Infographic or Should we Say Battlegraphic

Published by under Movies

the_hobbit_the_battle_of_the_five_armies-wide

Via Shirts.com: It all began with the words, “In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.” The Hobbit trilogy is coming to an end this year with the final film, The Battle of the Five Armies, and we got to thinking…just how does one have a battle with five armies anyway? That sounds confusing! We explored the words of J.R.R. Tolkien himself and used them to create this interactive battle map and companion infographic. They’ll give you a detailed play-by-play of the final chapter in this epic fantasy!

A couple of final notes before we get into the good stuff. First: All of the animation, information, and battle movements in this piece are derived from the novel’s version of events, not the film’s. Next: We’ve left out some minor details for the sake of brevity – Tolkien may be many things, but brief he is not. Finally: This post contains MASSIVE SPOILERS for The Battle of the Five Armies, which is based on a book that is 77 years old.

5 Movie Series That Started Terrible and Ended Up Awesome

Published by under Best of the Web

352614_v1

As tough as it is to create worthy sequels to great cinema, it’s nearly impossible to take a terrible movie and, while staying in the same franchise, improve upon it. Many movie plots deal with an underdog story, but that’s difficult to pull off in real life when the first film is a narrative at the height of its power and later films feature ideas like taking Jason to Manhattan or are called Batman Forever.

The following are rare examples of series that would eventually turn great but that started off as pathetic experiments in seeing what happens when you give inept people cameras and tell them, “It’s cool.”

Lord of the Rings Let it Go Parody is Worth a Peek

Published by under Videos

At this point you may be sick of all the Frozen parody videos out there but we’re not. Anything that makes fun of “Let it Go” is worth a shot in our book. This video for example, is a strangely appropriate Lord of the Ring-themed parody of “Let it Go” by the folks over at The Hillywood Show.

Were you a kid in the 90s?  I was.   And I distinctly remember wanted a number of the items you are about to see.  It’s funny because today we’d laugh at all of these.  Then again, if someone offered me a brand new Super Nintendo, I’m 99% sure that I would take it.   That and WWE (then WWF) wrestling buddies.  I mean who wouldn’t want an Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan doll for the holidays?  Check out all the items after the jump…

McDonald's Same Store Sales Up 7.1 Percent In January

Ridley Me This: Can Ridley Scott Make Good?

Published by under Movies

317110-560x282

Ridley Scott is a brilliant filmmaker. From the ‘70s to the early ‘00s, he dazzled us time and again with big screen spectacles. Alien was one of my first horror experiences, and shares credit with Blade Runner for introducing me to, and educating me in science fiction. Ridley Scott’s early work simply epitomised how movies are made. If you want to create an epic action film, you look to Gladiator for guidance.

It was somewhere around Kingdom of Heaven in ’05 that his path become slippery, and some traction was lost. Matchstick Men came two years previous, confusing though exciting us with its complex plot of conmen conning conmen. It seemed to start a trend. Whereas the early films were clear and well executed, now came a day of twists and turns that managed to confound instead of amaze the cinema-goers. American Gangster and Body of Lies were comparatively forgettable affairs, and it certainly appeared that Scott’s vision had taken a Thelma and Louise style tumble.

Published by under Movies

So all this time you’ve been saying “Beam Me Up, Scotty” because that’s what you thought the correct line was right?  Wrong.  It’s actually “Beam me aboard” which I personally think is 100 times worse.  Then again, I wasn’t the writer so it wasn’t my decision.  Speaking of which, there are more occurrences than that then you think.  Here are 14 examples of movie quotes you think you know, but in actuality they are something quite different.
