By now the entire world has been made aware of this trailer’s existence. But I am mostly to blame for the lack of promptness and all around good humor that you all have come to expect from RBM. Lots of booze and not enough sleep will cause such problems. Read the rest of this entry »
No amount of prayers will help your movie, Momoa
Since the colossal success of The Lord of the Rings, studio execs have been trying to bank on the grand-scale epicness perfected by Peter Jackson. He managed to take the works of Tolkien to a level never dreamed possible while sticking true to the story and pacing them beautifully. Why other directors can’t follow suit is beyond me. These days they feel the need to bombard their audiences with quick/random cuts, grand swooping shots from the sky, and random scenarios that seem to say “hey, what do ya think of this?”. Sadly, the 2011 take on the classic epic Conan: The Barbarian did just that. Read the rest of this entry »
One would assume that since MARVEL now has the power to make their own films they’d be able to make flawless comic book movies. Not so. Many would simply forget about the Fantastic Four flub, Ghost Rider‘s gaffe, and Electra‘s err…not me. A good handful of spot on renditions have come to the screen to prove that it can be done correctly. It just sucks when someone only goes half way. I just didn’t think the people behind X-Men: First Class would be in that category. Read the rest of this entry »
I know what you’re thinking. “This guy has problems.” Well, if by problems you mean a strong desire to be awesome, then you’re correct. Not many people have the balls to fully embrace something they love to the extent that I do, and that’s a shame. Why wouldn’t you want to absorb might, strength, and power into your daily lives? The Norsemen had the right idea, so grow a pair and live life the Viking way! MARVEL studios has been doing just that, and THOR is all the proof you need. Read the rest of this entry »
ManOwaR: Thor The Powerhead
Since I’ll be going to see THOR on the big screen in a few short hours, there was no other song I could think of to get me pumped enough to slay a few dozen Frost Giants.
“DAMN THEE, DIET!”
There is much excitement in the nerd community surrounding the new THOR movie that’s due out soon. As awesome as the trailer is, a “small” problem has been brought to my attention. Turns out the portly powerhouse Volstagg has been poorly cast. I know, I know. How hard could it be to cast a large and in-charge warrior from the halls of Asgard? Harder than you’d think, apparently. Read the rest of this entry »
This is not the face of a Batman who is a scared of something scary. No sir! This is the face of a Batman who just had his Bat-brains blown six ways past Sunday thanks to a video game trailer. But not just any video game trailer, mind you. He just finished watching some game-play of the new Arkham City game. Care to have your face make the same reaction? Hit the jump and prepare for some sheer kick-assery. Read the rest of this entry »
I guess ole Cap will be taking a little side-quest to Silent Hill at some point. I’d totally watch that.
Is it possible that someone has actually made an X-Men movie the right way? This looks quite good. But I thought that same thing about the Wolverine film. Fingers, start your crossing.
Amy Lee Radigan: Nerdy Girls Need Love Too
Hey! Amy Lee! If you dig older nerds, look no further! Should the whole age thing be an issue, I’m quite sure Professor Hubert Farnsworth has some sort of de-aging devise to make me like 4 years younger. Either way, you’re a cute nerd-girl up in Canada, I’m a gruff looking teddy-bear in Massachusetts. Let’s make this happen!
Damn. I have to admit, this looks quite awesome. The thought of The Human Torch being cast as ole Cap had me quite mad. But after seeing this, I think I’ll be okay with it.
After countless rumors flying around the web concerning who will be the villains in Chris Nolan’s upcoming Batman movie, Yahoo has announced that Oh Mars‘ second wife Anne Hathaway will be dawning the leather as Catwoman and Tom Hardy (of Nolan’s Inception) will test out his pipes as Bane.

Dear MARVEL: Over the years you’ve created some rather awesome superheroes with quite rad powers. However, there’s a rather huge problem that needs a fixin’. This whole giving a face-lift to movies you’ve already made thing needs to stop. I’m sure Andrew Garfield will make a great Peter Parker, but it’s going to take a lot for you to usurp Tobey Maguire. Just sayin’.
BATMAN The Animated Series: Christmas With The Joker
HEY! The Joker’s not suppose to know that song! That’s OUR song! And how in the hell did the guards at Arkham let a rocket-tree slip by their ever watchful eyes?
Hey, Tim Burton. Can I have some of whatever it was you smoked when you thought this was a good idea? I have some mistakes that need making and could sure use the help. Thank you.
Because I’m a nerd, something important in this trailer needs to be pointed out. Did anyone else see Odin magic Mjolnir away from Thor? Thor is the only one strong enough to even lift that hammer; it’s a known fact. What does this mean? Is this the first of many mistakes that await us in this picture? I sure hope not. Although, Volstagg didn’t look all that “Voluminous” to me. Read the rest of this entry »
That does it. It’s time for me to lawyer up and make these pricks stop snapping candid shots of me. Like, seriously. All they had to do was ask. I could’ve given them a much more bad-ass pose than this. Something tells me I won’t even get any cash for them using my likeness. But if this film makes people smile and praise the Gods, I’ll be fine with that.
Today is a very special day. On this very date back in 1605, a group of provincial English Catholics led by Sir Robert Catesby made an assassination attempt against King James I of England. The plan was to blow up the mighty House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament on November the 5th. Sadly, Catesby and his fellow plotters were thwarted by an anonymous letter sent to William Parker, 4th Baron Monteagle, on October 26th of that same year. The pricks gave the building a once-over on the tail end of November 4th and found GuyFawkes chillin’ with a shit load of gunpowder barrels. Read the rest of this entry »
Good thing The Man Of Steel refused to fight. Mr. T would mop the floor with that good-old-boy. All it would take is a little green rock strategically placed in one of his gloves, followed by a bowl of his Mr. T cereal, and the fight would be over before it started.
