The Final Countdown: Movie Songs, Zelda Henchmen and Time Gates

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see out of place songs that work well in movies.

“Sometimes songs just seem to fit a movie. For example, it’s obvious that one would use the song “Singing in the Rain” in a movie where the guy is actually singing and it’s actually raining. However, some movies play a song and you think to yourself, “Dude, what the hell is going on here?” and you just can’t fathom why the song has been used. However, after thinking about it you realize how disturbing, yet indescribably appropriate the use of that song was. Here are my picks (in no particular order) for the 10 most out of place songs that work really well in movies.”

The Final Countdown: Sophia Vergara, Fan Answers and Heavenly Sword Movie

Published by under Final Countdown

Premiere Of Warner Bros. Pictures' "New Year's Eve" - Arrivals

Go here to see why Sophia Vergara is like Arnold.

“I admit, before putting this together my knowledge of Sofia Vergara was generally limited to her late night appearances and glancing at her magazine covers — but being careful not to stare for too long — in the supermarket line. Few celebrities have left their home country and climbed the “American dream” ladder as high as she has. She’s basically a female version of Arnold Schwarzenegger.”

The Final Countdown: Police, Exodus and Hearthstone

Published by under Final Countdown

Peruvian anti-riot police officers participate in a military parade to celebrate Peru's Independence Day in Lima

Go here to see how police are starting to look like supervillains.

“Despite a continuing lack of rich vigilante superheroes, crime in America has been dropping for decades. Among other things, this means that police officers now have it easier: It’s safer to be a cop today than it has been in over 50 years. In fact, the number of police officers killed by guns in 2012 was the lowest since 1887, and I’m pretty sure guns back then were steam powered and required 10 minutes of hand cranking.”

The Final Countdown: Animated Blockbusters, Kindergarten Detective and The Cole Train

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see highest grossing animated movies of all time.

“Animated movies are not only for children. While they are usually targeted at the younger crowd, filmmakers know they’re not getting children into theaters unless parents are willing to see a particular movie with them, which is why so many animated films have an underlying sense of humor adults can appreciate and children adore. It might not surprise you to see which animated movies are the highest-grossing animations to date; four of the top five were created in the past decade.”

The Final Countdown: Doomed Movies, Best Episodes and Free, “Free” and Free* Games

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see upcoming movies that are doomed.

“There are a thousand things that can go wrong at any moment and torpedo an entire movie production. Sometimes the actor playing Jesus gets struck by lightning, or a nearly mummified Han Solo breaks his leg on an angry door that was surely possessed by the ghost of Greedo. And other times you need strangers on an Internet comedy site to tell you when to throw in the towel on your unwatchable boondoggle.”

The Final Countdown: Actor Methods, Engineering Jobs and EA is Wrong

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the craziest ways actors got into character.

“Method actors be crazy. Everybody knows that Christopher Walken devours six live doves before each take, and that Daniel Day-Lewis owns and makes liberal use of a time machine to research all of his roles. But there’s nothing that says method acting always pays off: Sometimes you fall in love with a role, take a big gamble and sacrifice huge parts of your time, life, and career to living in that role, and then end up starring in Hope Floats.”

KFC Introduces New, Healthier Menu

Go here to see five awesome KFC commercials.

“Ever since I saw a Walter Payton KFC Ad (which is in this list), I kind of wanted to find a bunch of KFC Commercials.   Honestly I have no clue why.  I suppose Burger Kind and McDonalds are better targets.  However, I’ve eaten at both of these places.  For some reason I’ve never, in my entire life, had the pleasure of eating at a Kentucky Fried Chicken.”
