Rooney Mara is One of the Most Underrated Actresses Out There

Published by under Debate,Movies

Rooney Mara

The Girl Who Played With Fire is eventually going to get its time to shine with David Fincher at the helm once again. In the meantime I’ve went back and watched the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo again and wanted to point something out – Rooney Mara deserves far more credit than she got for this role! Sure sure, she was nominated for an Oscar (her only nomination to date) and lost to Meryl Streep for her role in the Iron Lady. Now granted the Iron Lady was a strong film and I felt that Meryl deserved the nom (as she ALWAYS does) but the gold statuette should’ve been given to Rooney.

The Missing Season 1 Episode 4 Review: “Gone Fishing”

Published by under Television

8171927-large

At the end of the last episode of The Missing we discover video footage of Oliver after he has been taken so the efforts of Julian and Tony seem to have paid off, but we are only half way through the series and it’s pretty much a given that we aren’t going to gain answers just yet. “Gone Fishing” does take great strides though, I figured that after the fast paced last episode the action would slow down a little bit to pad out the storyline as there were still five episodes to go but I was wrong. In the latest episode the scenes that we are seeing in the flashbacks and present day seem to becoming a bit more bridged, I thought the 2006 scenes were more to explore the characters rather than the investigation but I was wrong as the investigation is featured quite prominently. I’d like to now stick two fingers up to the people that were doubting the use of the flashbacks.

Why The Animated Hobbit Is Better Than Peter Jackson’s

Published by under Books,Movies

The Hobbit

Please hear me out before you start hurling stones at me. I’m a fan of everything that Peter Jackson and his crew have accomplished over the past 13+ years. Peter has done wonders for Tolkien’s work by bringing it to the forefront of popular culture. He’s made it possible for the masses to not only enjoy the stories but to know everything about Middle Earth without ever having to endure the books. Sure a few details might be altered here and there but when does a book ever get translated into a movie word for word?

10 Video Game Toilets You Don’t Want Any Part Of

Published by under Video Games

Dead Space

In our everyday lives, the restroom is designed to be a place of sanitation.  While not every bathroom in the world is a fun place to be, in theory they’re supposed to be places of cleanliness and an environment conducive to doing your business.  However, in the gaming world, as many of you have seen, all bets are off.   Many video game toilets, are pretty much guaranteed to be disgusting.  So we decided to grab ten that we just wouldn’t even come close to in real life.  Inspired by IGN’s article of a similar name.

Twitter Users Share Pics of the “Snow-Pocalypse” Taking Place in New York

Published by under News

Snow House

We kid and joke about a possible apocalypse all the time.  I mean searches for “How to prepare yourself for a Zombie Apocalypse” have risen ten fold in the last five years.  Sure it’s because of shows like Walking Dead but do any of us really think that we’re going to be eaten by humans at some point?  Well, I do but that’s besides the point.  The point is that a true Apocalypse is taking place under our very noses at this very moment in time.  It just happens to be in the Buffalo region of the U.S.  But man is it eerie out there.  These are some pictures that twitter users have captured of the massive storm (including the one above which  looks like a house that’s more than welcoming the snow, it’s even happy about it!)

If Skyrim Met Dragon Age, We’d Have the Perfect Fantasy Game

Published by under Video Games

dragon age3

I’ve been playing Dragon Age: Inquisition for the past uh, 15 hours or so, and it’s been the first time I’ve stepped into a fantasy video game world (that wasn’t LOTR-based) since Skyrim. Bethesda’s game is arguably the best single-player fantasy title in history, yet Dragon Age has its own set of strengths. In a perfect world the two would combine to create a simply unstoppable force, though I’m not sure if it’s physically possible given the enormous work it goes into making each game their own way.

Skyrim’s Strengths

There is no better open world fantasy map than Skyrim, and before that, Oblivion, and before that, Morrowind, and you get the idea. Skyrim is a game where you can start in one place, and then literally go anywhere and do anything. Yes, there’s some vague semblance of linearity, but you can sink 50 hours into the game without ever getting past the first few intro missions.

Skyrim also has an absolutely incredible amount of cool quests, many of which go many beyond the simple “go here and fetch this variety’ that usually plagues the genre. The Daedric ones in particular were more memorable than any story quest, and the amount of quests and the beautiful, hidden locations in which you find them. Continue Reading »

Parent of the Year Award Goes to Whoever Made this Groot Tree Swing

Published by under Images

Groot Tree Swing

So far the most fitting thing comment I’ve read about this Groot Tree Swing picture is this:   How deep does that thing need to be anchored? How deep does awesome go?  That about says it all.  I mean what parents out there decided that they would carve their backyard tree and turn it into a swing?  And you know there’s just no way their kids understand or even know what the hell Monarch of Planet X is let alone its sentient tree-like creature superhero Groot.

Thanks to Poptartdinosaur for this incredible find and if you’re the parent, you rule!

10 Gorgeous Cosplay Outfits That Will Always be in Favor

OK, I admit it. This is just an excuse to post a ridiculous awesome cosplay picture I saw of Red Sonja.  Frankly you could put this female in an outfit Rorschach and she’d still find a way to look amazing.  However, being that I’m our resident cosplay guy here, you know that every once in a while we like to share what’s trending in the world of beautiful women out there who like to dress up as their favorite video game, comic book, and movie characters.  Here are 10 that we thoroughly enjoy….

James Cameron’s ‘The Potential Spider-Man’: What Almost Was

Published by under Columns,Comics,Movies

Image1

In June of 2002 I had my first real Spider-Man experience. Seeing Raimi’s web slinger swinging through New York City was a spectacle that really struck a chord with me. And it obviously stuck, because Spidey has been a subject of a number of my articles on Unreality. And today I want to talk about the Spider-Man that nearly was.

Jump back another 10 years to 1992, where the world is still basking in the metallic glow of Terminator 2 (I was three at the time, so I’m taking some atmospheric liberties here). James Cameron had stoked a fire under the simmering blockbuster wok, and now had his pick of recipes. Would he stick to the sci-fi world where he’d found comfort with his aliens and robots? Or was it time to scale new territory?

What’s Wrong With All The Spider-Man Games Out There?

Published by under Comics,Video Games

Spiderman Games

How many Spider-Man games must we go through before a game developer out there *cough ROCKSTEADY cough* will do the web crawler some much needed justice!? I’ve only played a handful of the web slinger’s escapades and I can tell you that I’ve played enough to know that I don’t need to partake in the rest of them. I thought we could take a moment and go through some of the reasons why these games never seem to capture the gaming frenzy as others like Batman or The Last of Us do.

If Superheroes and Villains Existed in the 16th Century

Published by under Images

superheroes_16_century_01

While we’re not 100% sure, we’re all but certain there were no Comic Con predecessors that dated back to the time where men wore skirts, crowns, robes, and Shakespeare type gear.  Sure people were into nerdy stuff in every century but can you imagine if today’s superheroes and villains existed in the 16th century?  Maybe the joker fits in because of the whole court jester thing but what about these other guys?  Not so sure….
