The Best Thundercats Cosplay for Each Character

Published by under Images

Thundercats

I’m a fan of the Thundercats, this is of no surprise to anyone. I’m sure that most of the readers that flock to Unreality are probably fans of the 80’s classic cartoon as well. For most of us, going through cosplay photos is an easy and fun way to kill some time while at work. (obviously we all love the internet for this reason – am I right?) If you’re waiting for that paper jam to clear, or are on a conference call and need to keep yourself from falling asleep, the internet cosplayers are there for you. I had never seen any “great” Thundercats cosplayers and made it a challenge to seek them out. So I’ve scoured the interwebs looking for the best of the best and these are some of my favorites that I happened upon.

Ranking All of the Star Wars Movie Trailers (So Far)

Published by under Lists,Movies,Videos

trailerbanner

So apparently there’s a new Star Wars trailer dropping this week. Even though I’m not necessarily sold on the new direction of the series, it’s hard not to marvel at the event. We haven’t had a new Star Wars trailer — or movie — in almost ten years (surely that Clone Wars theatrical release doesn’t count).

To whet our appetites for our first real glimpse at what Abrams & Co. have in store for us next year, I’ve assembled a completely subjective, but nonetheless entirely accurate, ranking of trailers for all the existing Star Wars movies (at least, the ones that count).

As Mr. Tetrault would say… let’s do this.

Smash Others: Suggestions for Future Smash Brothers Fighters

Published by under Video Games

ROSTER

With the release of two new Smash Brothers games this year, I’m of course thinking about one thing: who they should include in the next one. Yes, yes, I’m that awful cliché of a gamer who can’t be happy with what I’ve been given and have to hold out my hand asking for more more more. Shame on me.

But what can I say? I adore the smashing of all siblings in the digital domain and hope that Nintendo makes new iterations of the series for every system. Even if it is…considerably…similar to the game that first appeared centuries ago on the N64, I think of it as one of gaming’s best examples of “if it ain’t broke.”

So with my eye to the far future of electronic entertainment, I’m going to suggest some new gaming guys and gals to enter the fray. I’ll be borrowing on past Smash traditions, showing how they could fit into the gameplay and aesthetic of everyone’s favorite Nintendoriffic nostalgic free-for-all. Get ready for some left turns down Wacky Way this week, Unrealtors. But, hey, it’s Smash Bros. This is a game where Kirby once ate Solid Snake. Anything goes.

The Theory Of Everything Deserves The Oscar Buzz

Published by under Movies

TTOEpic

I’ll start by admitting that I haven’t actually watched most of the movies that are in contention for the Academy awards, I stopped paying attention to them a few years ago because the awards were more about campaigning than which was the best film or who gave the best performance. This year we still have our typical Oscar bait films that we’ll no doubt be hearing about until early next year, but we do have films that deserve it this year, films that we’ll still remember in years to come. Of course we have the excellent Boyhood which will win best picture if there is any justice in the world, and last night I watched The Theory of Everything which I can confirm deserves all the buzz that it has been getting.

Ripper Street Season 3, Episode 3 Review: Ashes and Diamonds

Published by under Television

4Qo3Dky

The last episode of Ripper Street seemed to mark a turning point with Inspector Reid, an honorable police officer, killing an unarmed man because he was led to believe that he had both abducted and abused his daughter which then led to her death. Due to this my excitement for ‘Ashes and Diamonds’ was at an all time high, I assumed we may abandon the procedural format for now because of what had happened and follow Reid while he was on the run, or attempting to somehow clear his name. Instead we had Inspector Drake taking over ‘H’ division in Reids absence, trying to protect Reid when he is questioned by Abberline at the beginning of the episode and after that we don’t hear much about Reid from the force. Instead of following up on Reid we have another case of the week which follows the team as they track down the culprit in the murder of a clairvoyant.

JJ Abrams Teases 88-Second Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

Published by under Movies

star-wars-jj-abrams-113535

J.J. Abrams is one of the best social media marketers in the business.   While many people don’t realize it, the guy spends almost zero money and hypes his upcoming projects with cryptic tweets including set pictures, videos, etc etc that make fans go absolutely insane.  Case in point?  The wait for the next Star Wars teaser trailer will soon be over.  Abrams, director of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, took to social media today and left fans a sneak peek of what’s in store for them.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Movie Review

Published by under Movies,Reviews

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

Part 1 of the series finale feels like nothing more than a lengthy lead in to what we all know will be a stunning conclusion to Katniss Everdeen’s story. I’ve read the books so this review will contain spoilers, little FYI for ya. If you’ve been watching each film not knowing what’s going to happen next and are in full appreciation of this, then perhaps you should skip out on my little review. What I don’t plan on doing is writing something that utilizes “big” words in order to illustrate an “educated” perspective on the source material or the movie itself. Nothing annoys me more than trying to read a movie review only to know if the movie is good or not while being bogged down with words that seemingly have no purpose. I will tell you that Mockingjay Part 1 is nothing more than ok and I would almost warn the Unrealtors that it’d be worth holding off on this one until Part 2 is set to release.

British Culture and Harry Potter is a New College Course We Have to Take

Published by under News

west highland railway

I graduated college a long time ago in a land far far away.   It’s been over a decade since I received my degree.  The coolest class offered at my school was called “The Grand Canyon” in which students went to the actual Grand Canyon for 2 weeks and had to write about it.   That was the entire class.   So what else has been going on in the last decade?  Plenty.  From classes that explore The Big Lebowski to World of Warcraft strategies the latest such awesome class comes to us from California State University and is called “British Culture and Harry Potter.”   The class focuses on learning about the locations that inspired the Harry Potter books and the ones used in the film. Students will travel to places across England and Scotland such as King’s Cross Station, Warner Bros. Studio, Durham Cathedral (Professor McGonagall’s classroom), Alnwick Castle, and more.

Here are what the goals of the class are according to CSU.

Explore and experience through travel the cultural and historical locations in England and Scotland that inspired the Harry Potter series Identify and assess the similarities and differences between the novels and films and the ways in which each drew inspiration from cultural sites in Great Britain Develop critical thinking skills about complex social issues relating to inequality, race, and gender within the context of contemporary Great Britain.

Incredibly Awesome Christmas Sweaters and Socks for Gamers

Published by under Images,Video Games

Gamer Sweaters 1

While the holiday season isn’t technically here yet you know that people are already getting into the Christmas mood.  And we can always start a little early, right?  Unfortunately we’re not 100% sure if you can order these in North America but they are available in the UK so I would highly suggest you give them the old college try here in the states.   Their “delivery” section mentions they accept International orders but we haven’t confirmed any purchases yet.

In any event, we’re talking video game Christmas sweaters and socks.  Honestly, things just don’t get much better than this.   Pics via

Would You Watch a Double-Priced, Five Hour Movie To Avoid Split Stories?

Published by under Movies

JAY

I just finished watching The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 last night, which I found perfectly okay, yet agreed with what everyone else was saying that it was mostly filler, leading up to the Capitol-invading finale where the real action happens.

Splitting a final installment in half is a trend recently, and we’ve seen it in everything from Harry Potter to Twilight as a way “better tell the story” by not having to cut down large books. In some of these cases, it does sort of make sense, as the final Harry Potter book was more than three times as long as the first one, and cutting so much out would really hurt the story.

But for Mockingjay? The final book in the trilogy is literally the exact same length as Catching Fire, practically to the page. It’s a story that really did not need to be split at all, at least not for dramatic reasons, and the result is nothing but a cash grab. Continue Reading »

5 Of The Best Pixar Short Films

Published by under Movies

Lava Pixar Short

Does anyone ever look forward to the short films that appear before the Pixar features? I always do. Sometimes I leave the theater remembering them more so than the movie that I was there to watch. What started as experimenting in computer animation is now something that showcases what Pixar is fully capable of. The style, story and characters of each short helps illuminate the artistry and talent that Pixar can muster within a handful of people. If you’re one of those people that always forgo the trailers and come in to the movie a few minutes late, these little gems are reason enough to show up a few minutes early.

Pitch Perfect 2 Headlines This Week’s Trailers

Published by under Lists,Movies

Pitch Perfect 2

It’s been a month since our daughter was born and the wife and I are finally breaking out of the house and going to go see a movie! WOO HOO! *whistles the Hunger Games theme out loud to celebrate* … Yes, that’s right, I’m going to go see the Hunger Games finale part 1. I was upset with the first film for falling flat and not delivering on what my hopes were. (as every film obviously needs to pander to me of course) Katniss’ second outing was far better and a lot more entertaining than I was anticipating due to how the first film left me. Now were on the verge of attacking the Capitol and I feel that the cliff hanger of part 1 will leave us either at the mountain or after it’s been taken down. Regardless, I’m holding out hope that they can finish this trilogy (do we still consider it a trilogy?) in grand fashion and give the fans of the books a decent send off. Stay tuned for the review!

It’ll be interesting to see what trailers might be shown in front of the movie tonight.

Let’s do this.

Come See How Outrageously Bad the New Sonic The Hedgehog Game Is

Published by under Video Games

sonic boom rise

We’re at a very, very strange place in the lifespan of poor Sonic the Hedgehog. After being king of the video game universe, or at least crown prince after Mario, Sonic has now seen his series become a rollercoaster of quality, racing between “pretty good” and “hilariously awful.” Guess where we are right now?

Well, we’re at the point where Sonic is now having a video game made out of a TV show which was of course, made out of his former video games. That would be “Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric,” and it’s far and away one of the worst reviewed games of the year, if not the past few years. The best part? It’s only on Wii U, SEGA’s former eternal rival. Continue Reading »
