More Books From Jo3bot

Published by under Images,Movies,Television

Artist extraordinaire Jo3bot is back with another pair of kids book covers. Based on the famed Golden Books we all read as kids, this time he’s taken Ninja Turtles and Kill Bill and turned them into rather adorable covers.

The Bride is below, and I just now noticed he makes them all “A Little Mutagen Book” or “A Little Hanzo Book” depending on the topic. And the same goes for the symbols in the golden spine on the left side. CLEVER JO3BOT.

One more below: Continue Reading »

The Feline Terror of Hoth

Published by under Images,Movies

cat

No, this isn’t just a replica AT-ST that an avid Star Wars fan made and his cat happened to crawl inside. He specifically made this for his cat, as what kitty wouldn’t want to march through the snow on two metal legs as puny rebels flee in terror? And then nap inside afterward?

But yeah, cat toy aside, this is some pretty quality workmanship, and this guy deserves all the internet fame he can get from this. I’m fully expecting a Death Star doghouse out back.

Good work, Jackson Galaxy.

Casting the Amalgam Universe Movies

AMALGAM POSTER

In comics, chocolate and peanut butter are rarely mixed.

As much as we may wish otherwise, the big two remain Houses of Ideas divided. Aside from the occasional mini-series (that, obviously, doesn’t really count in continuity), Marvel and DC usually keep all their toys to themselves.

But once, long ago, in a mystical hazy time we call the mid-90s, where Rangers were Powerful and a hundred thousand Tamagotchis all sang out in chorus, the stars aligned. DC and Marvel squared off against each other in Marvel vs. DC, and the result was…well…this: Continue Reading »

Living in the Age of Ultron

Marvel just debuted a new preview poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is actually eight posters showcasing all eight of the Avengers that will appear in the next film. Additions are Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, seen in a few panels above.

I’m also not quite sure who the guy in the cape is in the distance there, any guesses?

Hawkeye is really struggling here. I guess having actual superpowers is sort of important when you’re fighting murderous robots. Although Black Widow appears to be punching them in the face just fine.

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman Debuts at Last

Published by under Images,Movies

Well, I though that Diana Prince might only have a cameo in the new Batman V. Superman movie, and certainly wouldn’t be in costume yet. But Zack Snyder just proved me wrong at SDCC, debuting Wonder Woman as the last part of the film’s “Holy Trinity.” She will be in the film, though apparently isn’t important enough to squeeze into the title.

Many have criticized Gal Gadot for being too model-y to play the part, as the role requires someone sturdier and less wisp-ish. I think this photo proves with the right costume and workout routine, most actresses can probably make for a badass looking Wonder Woman, her included.

My problem with Gadot has never been her look, it’s that while Marvel takes even secondary female roles and gives them to stellar actresses like Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Gwenyth Paltrow, Wonder Woman is literally the most famous female supehero ever, and DC casts the one girl from the Fast and the Furious movies. No not that one, the other one. Still no, the other one. There you go.

Perhaps its unfair to judge Gadot on one relatively paltry role, but it does seem like something of a risk. I suppose we won’t know how this will all play out until the film itself, but at least we know she’ll look the part at the very least.

The Greatest Movie Conspiracy Ever Told

Published by under Images,Movies

plan

If you’ve made it all the way to the bottom of this absurdly long image, you probably get the gag already, but one film fan uncovered/invented an exceptionally elaborate conspiracy theory involving Harrison Ford and James Earl Jones trying to kill Hitler across both the Indiana Jones and Star Wars franchises.

It mainly has to do with two recurring bad guy actors who appear in both franchises, one of whom is Hitler himself. Anyway, stop reading this and scroll back up and follow along. \

I highly doubt 9gag actually came up with this, but respect to whoever actually did.

Worth a Read: The Story of How Galaxy Quest Got Made

Published by under Movies

galaxy quest

It’s the 15th anniversary of the release of Galaxy Quest, a movie it’s almost impossible not to like, and one of my favorite films, sci-fi, comedy or otherwise. I watched it when I was a teen, and many, many times since, and it’s amazing how great the concept is, how much talent there is in the cast, and how well it holds up over time.

MTV has a rather lengthy interview with those behind the film, and it’s a fascinating read as to how the movie actually got made in the first place. It was originally called “Captain Starshine,” but it evolved from there into the cult classic it is today. I highly recommend giving it a full read, and naturally, watching the movie again in honor of its anniversary.

Never give up, never surrender.

The Darth Car is Real

Published by under Images,Movies

When I saw glimpses of the Hot Wheels’ Darth Car online the other day, I thought it was just that, a Hot Wheels car. The tiny kind you run around plastic loop-de-loop tracks. But apparently I missed the fact that this thing is very much real, and on display at SDCC right now.

Though it does exist as a toy, Hot Wheels actually built a real life version of the car that’s more or less what Darth Vader would transform into if her were in a Michael Bay movie. It’s half ridiculous, half awesome, and I’m hoping it shows up in Star Wars Episode VII. Check out more photos of it below: Continue Reading »

Black Milk Moves On to Disney Princesses and Villains

Published by under Images,Movies

DIS001-DisneyBaddiesLegs-1-WEB_1024x1024

I’m about 30% certain that Black Milk is just browsing Unreality when it comes to crafting their new product lines, as they’ve gone from superheroes to Star Wars to Harry Potter, and now all the way to Disney princesses and villains.

Or they just realized that Maleficent made like $700M worldwide.

In any case, they’re debuting pieces of a new Disney inspired line that ranges from villainous leggings to Snow White onesies I expect to see Miley Cyrus wearing soon enough. You can check out the other pieces of the collection below, and buy them as always here. Well, “soon” at least. Continue Reading »

Lil Wonders By Patrick Ballesteros

Published by under Images,Movies

Artist Patrick Ballesteros is back with a whimsical new series based on coin-operated cars and pop culture icons. When I grew up, the only coin operated rides like these were those creepy brown horses that seemed to infect every grocery store in the US before bored kids just started playing Game Boys and iPads instead.

But these? I would totally have loved to ride in a Batmobile, DeLorean or the shark from Jaws. The entire series is pretty cool, and you can check it out for yourself below: Continue Reading »
