The Morning Link: Batman Villains Who Should Never Be on Gotham

Published by under Morning Link

gotham8

I don’t know about you, but I love a good comic-book origin story, which is why I’m excited to check out Gotham on September 22nd. Serving as the origin story of Commissioner Gordon, as well as displaying the formative years of Batman/Bruce Wayne, we’re bound to get some dark, brooding, crime-ridden goodness.

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

Published by under Final Countdown

hated

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?”

Going Somewhere Solo?

Published by under Images,Movies

solo

A simply gorgeous piece by Kevin M. Wilson showing the famous showdown between Han and Greedo, right before Han shot him under the table. Actually. Judging by that table, there really wasn’t anything for the laser bolt to pass through, so I’m calling shenanigans on this piece.

Just kidding, it’s absolutely amazing, and I’m just sad it’s not available to buy as a print yet. This needs to be over my fireplace in like 4×4 frame.

Cosplay of the Day: Lady Sherlock

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

sherlock-cosplay

Sherlock appears to be yet another one of those characters like Link who is more effectively cosplayed by the opposite gender. I’m not sure what that says about Benedict Cumberbatch in this case, but it’s hard to say that cosplayer  Mi-caw-ber has done anything other than a bang-up job with her costume here.

You can see a few more shots of her in action below, including the full trenchcoat which is a must-have for any Sherlock ensemble. Scarves can only get you so far, after all.  Continue Reading »

Harry Potter as Told By Other Students

Though Harry Potter was the hero of his story, it was just that. HIS story. What about if the events of the books were seen through the eyes of the other, unnamed student at Hogwarts rather than just Harry and his friends? They’re just wizards trying to learn wizardry, damnit!

I believe these are from Tickld, though I could be mistaken. In any case, I had to put them all above the jump because they’re funnier when consumed that way. What’s that? I should probably go re-read Harry Potter for the eleventh time? Yeah, sounds about right. Oooh, I haven’t read the ebook edition yet!

ROYGBIV: A Pixar Supercut

Published by under Movies,Videos

I don’t quite know what the loose consensus is on Pixar these days. Is your average movie fan still on their team? Losing faith? I’m more in the latter category, but hopefully their upcoming slate of movies will erase the disappointing memories from their last handful of projects. Still, even Pixar’s more middling movies tend to stand above the competition.

Part of this is due to the way Pixar folks really embrace the possibilities of animation: in essence, you can put anything on that screen. With the power of their best visuals, it’s not unusual for the most striking Pixar sequences to eschew dialogue completely (just look at the opening of Wall-E, or the trash melter in Toy Story 3). Heck, the entire premise of Up can be summed up in a single frame.

The point of this rambling lead-in is that some cool person made a video that celebrates Pixar’s über-cinematic use of the entire (visible) color spectrum, and y’all should watch it. It’s up at the top of the article.

Team Extreme Archeology

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

QAsDP5y

The most famous two archaeologists in pop culture (outside of Indiana Jones, who inspired them both) are most definitely Lara Croft and Nathan Drake, and though they never appear together in a game, they make for rather excellent couples cosplay.

I tried to dress up as Nathan Drake a few years back on Halloween, but I’ll admit this guy does a wayyy better job of it. Mostly due to that scarf. And handsomeness. Obviously lady Croft is flawless as well. There are more pictures to check out from their shoot below. I love that she bought an ice pick.  Continue Reading »

The Morning Link: Why You Don’t Want a New Hulk Movie

Published by under Morning Link

hulk

“It’s one of the most talked about projects for Marvel, especially after The Avengers cleaned house: A new Hulk movie. It’s such a topic of discussion, Lou Ferrigno can claim they’re working on a new solo movie and a TV series, and it’ll make the nerd blogs. But do people really want a new Hulk movie? Probably not.”

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.”

No, Tim Burton is not working with Disney again to reboot all your beloved Princesses in ragdoll/zombie form (as cool as that may be). Rather, these are some pieces from artist NoFlutter who has given the Princesses a scary-ish makeover, while retaining maximum adorableness in the process.

There are individual shots of all the girls for you to check out below: Continue Reading »

Skuzzles’ Cult Horror Post Remakes

Published by under Images,Movies

Skuzzles-with-Dan-Mumford

Skuzzles has taken on a number of classic horror films, remaking their posters, but they haven’t done it just for fun. This is part of a larger commissioned project, it seems:

“Earlier in 2014, Skuzzles partnered with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Studios and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in developing artwork for 13 cult classic horror films. The DVDs and Blu-rays feature illustrated limited edition artwork created by a collective of incredible artists from all over the globe (Ghoulish Gary Pulin, Jason Edmiston, Todd Slater, Randy Ortiz, Josh Budich, Justin Osborne, Paul Shipper, Gregorz Domaradzki “Gabz”, Francesco Francavilla).”

That’s pretty awesome, and you should definitely check out the full colelction of covers below. The Last House on the Left is my favorite above (and my favorite film on the list), but they’re all worth checking out. Continue Reading »
