The Final Countdown: Movie Plots, Cheap Cars and Destiny’s Scale

Published by under Final Countdown

Go here to see dumb things movies do to advance the plot.

“Hollywood has endless ways of making us feel bad about ourselves — movie heroes and villains alike are always sexier, richer, funnier, and far more capable of kung fu than we are in real life. That’s why pointing out the dumb mistakes that movie characters make is one of our favorite things to talk about.”

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.

Of Course You Want to Watch The Game of Thrones Season Four Gag Reel

Published by under Television,Videos

Game of Thrones may be all fire and blood by the time we see it onscreen, but unsurprisingly, it’s actually a lot of fun to make. As part of the “we’re not going to reveal anything important” philosophy of the show’s appearance at SDCC, they debuted their new gag reel for season four.

While it may not answer burning questions about how the show will match up with the books in season five, it is quite hilarious, and it’s always funny to see the actors in costume breaking character as they screw up their lines or miss a cue. Oberyn Martell almost burned himself alive with a wall torch, it seems.

Be sure to stay all the way to the end – #DINKLAGESWAG.

Video Games are Better Without the Hype

Published by under Editorials,Video Games

watch dogs

San Diego Comic Con was on everyone’s radar recently and I was expecting to go crazy for it too. I normally eye livestreams, social media pages, and what not during events like these. However, it’s strange how I let the weekend by without paying attention to any of the news that came out. I only found out about stuff through my Facebook feed or my friends. Promise of information about my favorite games didn’t do much either. I was satisfied knowing in my own way and in my own time. I even stopped looking for The Sims 4 news almost every day even if I love the franchise to pieces.

Sometimes you can appreciate games more the less you know about it…

A Plea To Game Developers To Keep Making Single Player Games

Published by under Lists,Video Games

f

A lone man stands on a broken, old highway, with the wind blowing in his hair. In front of him he has miles of destroyed and dilapidated Washington D.C to explore. But a big part of this for him is how alone he is. All around him, only threats loom in all directions. Mutants who want to tear him apart. Bandits who wants to rob and kill him, leaving his body to rot in the dust like carrion. SUDDENLY, three of his friends “drop in” the game and start obliterating everything around him. All sense of dread, loneliness, and solemnity are gone, and he strides forth with his three friends, decimating all that stand in their way. As you can see from the following statement, Fallout 3 would have been ruined by multiplayer. I wrote that specifically to make a point. I live for single player game experiences. I am a loner, Dottie, a rebel. Yet the forthcoming landscape of games seem to hint that this is going to be a thing of the past. All games are trying to cram multiplayer into their game (and even build entire games around it), and I will now tell you why that has put the single player game on the soon-to-be-extinct list, and why that kills the entire purpose of video games (for me, at least).

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.

“While I love to poke fun at the sheer ridiculousness of San Diego Comic Con, there are some pretty cool things about it. One of the things I’ve always enjoyed reading about is celebrities getting the chance to walk through the crowds completely incognito, thanks to a mask or costume.”

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.

Cosplay of the Day: Batman’s Most Dangerous Foe

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

batmanrine

Well that’s one bit of mash-up cosplay I’ve never seen before. What would happen if universes collided at the Wolverine merged with Joker? We’d get the Jokerine, seen above with one real claw, and one gag one.

It’s not impossible, because I remember back in the Marvel vs. DC days, that saga ended with a whole bunch of crossovers between worlds, though Joker/Wolverine wasn’t among them. Amalgams, they called them, right? I’m so good at comic books.
