Alison Brie and Jennifer Lawrence in a 2007 Buffy Parody That Never Aired

Published by under Television,Videos

I had to do a triple take here to see if this wasn’t some bad Funny or Die skit, but it’s a very real clip from a very real show which thankfully never aired. It’s a 2007 show called “Not Another High School Show,” which debuted in the height of the “Not Another Teen Movie” craze, meaning someone thought it was a good idea.

It’s so, so egregiously terrible, but the worst part is that it actually has a great cast with Alison Brie as Buffy parody “Muffy,” H. Jon Benjamin as a janitor, and Jennifer Lawrence as…I don’t even know. In the short clip you’ll see that Buffy, The OC and Dawson’s Creek are all parodied, and I genuinely don’t think I could have watched any more of this without bursting into tears from its awfulness.

Thank god all of these actors managed to get past this and move onto bigger and better projects like Community, Archer and winning Oscars. I’m not sure their careers would have survived if this ever actually aired.

DC Characters Turned Pokemon Trainers

Published by under Comics,Images,Video Games

Batman-Zubat-top

Superheroes plus Pokemon? I’m all over it.

In this series of illustrations from Creees Lee, he imagined which Pokemon would pair well with which famed DC superhero (or occasionally, villain). Obviously Batman would be surrounding by a flock of annoying Zubats, but what about Shazam, Flash, Aquaman and Catwoman?

You’ll have to check out the others below to see, if you haven’t guessed them already. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Ice Warrior Elsa Ready for Battle

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

elsa-armor-main

In the Disney film, Elsa may have “let it go” in the end, when it came to hunting the people who ostracized her, but not so in this cosplay version by Mimiru Riley. In her parallel Frozen universe, Elsa is ready for battle with self-made ice armor, and ready to jump into the fray right alongside her mutant snowman friend.

Poor uh, what’s her name again? Anna. She’s the lead of that movie, yet she’s always playing second fiddle to her sister with magical ice powers. I suppose magical ice powers will do that.

Angels in the Apocalypse: How the Events of “Angels in the Outfield” Led to Humanity’s Extinction

ANGELS 2

Leave it to the happiest company on Earth to end it.

In 1994, Disney released what’s become a family cinematic staple: the screwball sports comedy classic, “Angels in the Outfield.” The film was fairly star-studded with Danny Glover, Christopher Lloyd, and a pre-Robin Joey Gordon-Levitt all in starring roles, and had future Oscar winners Adrien Brody and Matthew McConaughey as side players. And it had Tony Danza shirtless.

The film was a success, and kids across America owned the clamshell case clad comedy on VHS, myself included. As a kid I must’ve watched the movie just shy of one billion times, and loved it. But it wasn’t until a recent viewing (and more on just why I revisited the film later) that I realized something sinister was brewing behind the bases. “Angels in the Outfield” seemed like good fun…but have you ever really thought about what happens after the Angels (SPOILER ALERT) do win the pennant?

Well…I have…and I’m here to say goodbye to the human race. Continue Reading »

Well You Don’t Get More British Than This

Published by under Images,Television

tardis tea

Feeling impossibly British at a given moment? Well, it might just be time to impulse buy this Doctor Who teacup set from where else, Etsy. They’re made to order, and $36.00. They do not come with a guarantee that when you pour your tea, it will not disappear into a black hole of space and time.

Still, I’d get one. If I drank tea. And had $36 budgeted for mugs this month.

Fall 2014: The Most Exciting Time for Video Games?

Published by under Editorials,Video Games

assassins_creed_unity_e3_2014_4

I used to think that last fall was the most exciting time in video games in the last five years. With the arrival of new consoles, who wouldn’t feel excited about video games last November? Gamers saw the dawn of a new generation, but there weren’t a lot of game releases to sustain the momentum in my opinion. The transition is always awkward and there can be a bit of a drought as the industry gradually adjusts to new hardware.

Others would say that 2015 will definitely be THE year for gamers. However, Fall 2014 still has a lot in store for gamers down the line. If this year isn’t the most exciting, then it’s definitely the perfect kickoff to another great year in gaming. My wallet is already crying because it knows it’s going to lose a lot of weight in the next few months.

Let’s take a look at some of the upcoming highlights.

The Morning Link: The Five Worst Things To Ever Happen on True Blood

Published by under Morning Link

worst

Yup, I’m one of the few people who’s still watching True Blood, and nope, I don’t have a good reason. I’m just one of those people who once they start watching something, they have to finish it. (Likewise, I saw Dexter all the way to its lumberjack-y end.) With next Sunday’s True Blood series finale in mind, I forced myself to remember all the ridiculous things that have happened on this show, and picked out the five worst.”

The Hawaiian Style TV movie that was later chopped up into four syndication-edible episodes is not included, nor are the Good Morning, Miss BlissThe College Years, or The College Years‘ Las Vegas movie, for reasons that should be obvious. Saved by the Bell: The New Class is a totally different show; kindly get the hell out of here for even asking about it.”

It Should Be A Movie By Now: Deadpool

Published by under Comics,Movies

deadpool-featured

I feel that Deadpool is a staple of the Unreality world. There have been plenty of contributors who have had a few tales to tell about the Merc With A Mouth – Paul, Nick, and Remy to name a few. Figured it was high time that I add to that pool of people and rant about the fact that we still don’t have a Deadpool movie!?

A little background on this subject pertaining to yours truly…Wade Wilson did not start off as my go to favorite comic book character. As a kid I can remember being totally obsessed with the X-Men and Spiderman. I probably knew enough about the X-Men to rival a lot of the comic book nerds twice my age. The day that all changed was when my parents dropped me off at the local comic book store and I was trying to haggle a price with the old man behind the counter for one of my comics and I noticed in the case a comic with a guy that looked like Spiderman but more BA. Clearly I asked to see the comic … never before as a kid had I witnessed a comic book character with that type of personality or one that broke the 4th wall. Spiderman had a wit and great sarcasm about him, but nothing that touched what I was to soon learn about Mr. Wilson.

Captain Spidey Want YOU to Write For Unreality!

Published by under News

captain spiderman

It’s that time of year again! Where I go fishing for brilliant new Unreality writers. We have a new spot opening up ’round these parts, so I thought I’d put out the casting call yet again.

If you like, movies, TV, video games, comics or fiction, and also like writing, we may have a place for you here. Yes, we’re a lot of cosplay and Pokemon and Disney Princesses and so on, but our favorite pieces are those written by our staff about anything and everything across pop culture. We’re looking for essays, editorials, recurring columns, lists, and other longer form stuff on a weekly basis.

If you want to join our legendary ranks, send me an email (paultassi@gmail.com). Either give me some links to similar content you’ve written elsewhere, attach a sample post of something you might write for Unreality, or both. Even if you’ve applied before, feel free to have another go. Space constrictions force me to cut qualified candidates sometimes, and even though there’s only two spots now, that could change and plenty of people have come off the wait list to work here.

Will look forward to seeing your stuff, and let’s leave this open for about the next week or so.
