The Final Countdown: Political Movies, RDJ and Destiny’s Loot Problem

Published by under Final Countdown

star trek darkness

Go here to see movies with political agendas you didn’t notice.

“Lots of movies try to send messages. Some are obvious, some are subtle, and some are so ham-handed you end up hating the movie even though you agree with the sentiment. On the other hand, we’ve pointed out before that a few messages can be so nuanced, pretty much every viewer misses them. Feel free to disagree with us, but we think we’ve found compelling cases that …”

The Final Countdown: Overrated Shows, Michael Bay on TV and Defending Destiny

Published by under Final Countdown

doctor who

Go here to see TV shows that get more praise than they deserve.

“Listen, I get it. People like what people like, and, with so many options available, complaining about the inferior choices made by others is kind of pointless and petty when you could just as easily skip those things altogether in favor of something else. So, in that respect, that I’m about to spend a couple thousand words of column space explaining why the shows a lot of you enjoy are a little more beloved than they deserve to be might seem like kind of a dick move.”

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see unintentionally hilarious scenes in movies.

“Listen, filmmakers, we understand — sometimes you just want your movie to be taken seriously. Unfortunately, in trying so hard to maintain that status quo, really stupid scenes manage to slip in. Our readers have brought you some of those scenes for your viewing pleasure.”

The Final Countdown: Robots, Foxcatcher and Destiny’s Secret

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see five reasons to be less worried about robots taking over.

“Cloud storage, wearable computers, self-driving cars — the Brave New World has finally arrived, and it’s only a matter of time until the robot takeover is complete. Of course, it’s only natural that as they become more and more human, the machines will want what we want — our cars, our cool hairdos, even the very objects of our hearts’ affections. So how do you compete against a realistic android who smells great, never forgets a date, and never gets smashed at children’s birthday parties?”

The Final Countdown: Internet’s Most Hate, Bond 24 and Destiny Fixes

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see five things learned from being the most hated person on the internet.

“Editor’s Note: A few weeks ago our message board and general inbox were bombarded with demands we address something called the “GamerGate Scandal”, posts written with the urgency and rage one would associate with, say, discovering that Chipotle burritos are made entirely from the meat of human babies. It’s apparently a big deal in some circles, so we followed the links and read the piles of data presented, and had to stop and take a deep breath just to grasp it all. “Gentlemen,” we said amid the stunned silence, “do you realize that if what they’re saying is true, then this is still the most pointless fucking bullshit anyone has ever forced us to read?”

The Final Countdown: Late Night Diversity, Iconic Movie Scenes and Gaming Lessons Learned

Published by under Final Countdown

late night

Go here to see why late night is afraid of diversity.

“Kathy Griffin came out last week as saying that a while back, she took a meeting to express interest in replacing Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show. So much interest, in fact, that her go-to line was “I can start Monday.” She was told, however, in no uncertain terms, that they were “not considering females at this time.”

The Final Countdown: Dancing Scenes, Hardy’s Pup and Groot the Hero

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the five best dancing scenes on film.

“I have two great loves. The first is poutine, because I’m a proper Canadian. The second is any movie scene of diegetic dancing. That may sound weirdly specific, but it my love for such scenes runs deep. I love movies, and there is nothing I love more in a film than watching characters start dancing out their emotions within the reality of the story. Musicals with choreographed dances are great, but that’s not quite the same. The way I see it, there are few things more cinematic than allowing dialogue to drop out in favour of characters letting loose to a great song.”

The Final Countdown: Spider-Man, Insane Movies and Destiny Endgame

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see how Andrew Garfield would have fixed Spider-Man 2.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was… not amazing. And, as the third movie gets delayed and will possibly never arrive, the buck-passing has begun, starting with Andrew Garfield. Garfield is currently on the press circuit promoting a do-gooder documentary, so he sat down with the Daily Beast to talk about said documentary. Cutting through all the boring and pretentious parts, we come to this.”

The Final Countdown: Box Office Woes, Insult Art and Destiny Liveblog

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see why the box office is the worst its been since 9/11.

The estimated overall gross at the box office this weekend is $63 million. The last time the overall weekend gross was this low was was September 21-23, 2001, and you can guess why the box-office was so low then. That is to say, the last time a weekend was this bad at the box office, we’d just come under attack by terrorists and George W. Bush could boast a 92 percent approval ratings.”
