The Final Countdown: History Myths, Doubtfire Sequel and Elder Scrolls Bug

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see scenes from history everyone pictures wrong.

“Whether it takes the form of a somewhat historical film like Braveheart or an only slightly more fictionalized epic like Lord of the Rings, we do love watching some old-timey combat. Vikings, Samurai, Roman Centurions — there’s just something so much cooler about the way men fought back in the old days.”

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

Published by under Final Countdown


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.”

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

Published by under Final Countdown


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.”

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see why people spoil things.

“There have been countless articles written on the Internet devoted to the rules of spoilers: When they are appropriate and in what venue. Should you wait a week? A day?

The Final Countdown: Secret Superpowers, Mad Men and Assassin’s Creed Movie

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see sensory superpowers you didn’t know you had.

“Fiction loves to explore the crazy idea of humans having some kind of magical “sixth sense” (like in that Bruce Willis movie, The Fifth Element) but that’s kind of silly, considering how we barely use the senses we have.”

The Final Countdown: Archie Dying, Fan Communities and Super Smash Bros.

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see why Archie is dying.

“Archie Publications has, in recent years, gotten smart with the books they put out. Afterlife With Archie takes what should be a dumb idea, Archie fighting zombies, and makes it a disturbing, even sad, book. They’ve tackled issues ranging from the Occupy movement to same-sex marriage. And now, they’re going to kill Archie.”

Unreal Movie Review: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

Published by under Final Countdown


The existence of the TV and movie-spanning Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to amaze and astound me. When you pull back and realize that eight different movies focusing on a collection of heroes has all worked together almost seamlessly for the better part of a decade, and even more films and TV shows are being added to the mix as time goes on, it’s one of the more impressive achievements in popular culture history.

At this point, if it’s Marvel and it’s Warner Bros, it’s bound to be good, and those involved with the uber-franchise only seem to be getting a better hang of it as time goes on. The Avengers was better than all the individual films that came before it. Iron Man 3 was the best of the bunch. Thor 2 beat Thor 1 handily. And now Captain America: Winter Soldier is more interesting that The First Avenger ever was.

Captain America has always run the risk of being the “lesser” Avengers franchise. Thor has the wonders of Asgard and the forever-entertaining Loki. Iron Man has Tony Stark, a one man show. But Captain America? He’s a frozen soldier with a shield, played by Chris Evans in a way where he’s got looks and muscles, but he leaves most of the charisma to other team members. It’s a conscious decision by him and his directors, as everyone on the team can’t really have the same personality. His background and willingness to work as a team make him a natural leader, but can he be compelling? Continue Reading »

The Final Countdown: Movie Lessons, The Raid 2 Game and Xbox One Gold

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the insane lessons you didn’t notice in famous movies.

“But what I find fascinating is that occasionally Hollywood will crank out a beautifully made film that is received with universal praise but whose moral is just utterly fucking bizarre. All of the films on this list are wonderful films, but that’s the point: You get so distracted by the spectacle that you don’t notice how freaking insane they are.”

The Final Countdown: Sitcom Finales, Marketing Disasters and GTA Online Heists

Published by under Final Countdown

Last Forever Part One

Go here to see why sitcom finales are hard to pull off.

“Backlash to the series finale of How I Met Your Mother started pretty much the moment the credits rolled. (Spoilers ahead, obviously.) After nine seasons and more than 200 episodes, it was revealed that Ted (Josh Radnor), who had ostensibly been telling his kids the story of how he met their mother, was actually telling them about how much he also used to love the woman they know as “Aunt Robin” (Cobie Smulders), and further, that he was looking for their approval to pursue a relationship with her.”
