That’s right folks, it was 20 years ago today that Canadian animator/maniac John Kricfalusi warped the minds of 10-12 year olds across the globe. Never before had toilet humor and outlandish violence been captured so beautifully as it was with the help of an asthma-hound chihuahua and a semi-retarded cat. But if it wasn’t for the disturbing nonsensical chaos that Ren & Stimpy provided, I probably wouldn’t be the jolly ole Viking that I am today. 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 »
“Macho Man” Randy Savage: Speaking from the Heart
While a slew of morons are plastering religious nonsense all over the internet, some rather shocking information elbow-dropped me into my own religious experience….and not in a good way. It seems the greatest, most meticulous, professional wrestler has signed his contract to wrestle for eternity in the halls of Valhalla. Today, “Macho Man” Randy Savage passed away. TMZ has all the details that are known as of now. Read the rest of this entry »
Remembering things that half the world forgot is one of my many mutant powers (being able to spot a female nipple in one frame of a movie is another one). Friends contact me at all hours of the night when they get stuck trying to remember something from their child hood, and 90% of the time I have the answer. It’s that fiendish 10% that gets under my skin. Every now and then my brain only shows me a few images of things that I should know instantly. That REEEALLY pisses me off. But I’m a very patient man. I know that if I wait long enough (and drink enough booze) the veil will be lifted and the knowledge will be mine. Today’s “Throwback” took me over 20 damn years, mostly due to a word that will forever haunt me…..PHOTON. Read the rest of this entry »
So, as many of my friends are aware, I have been looking forward to the first episode of the new web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy. First off, I want to say that I have had a total girl-crush on Jeri Ryan for some time (Voyager brought that on, of course), and while I thought that she might be a little too “mature” to be playing a 20-something Sonya Blade, I thought that she filled the role nicely based on the first episode and she’s as beautiful and intense as ever. Michael Jai White fills the role of Jax near perfection. I was ecstatic to see Tahmoh Panikett (Helo in Battlestar Gallactica) as Stryker. I have to say, I wasn’t super impressed with the choice of Kano for an antagonist, and I was equally turned off by Darren Shahlavi’s (Watchmen) acting, but I’m not blaming him, they couldn’t have picked a worse bad guy to start the series. What an uninteresting choice?!?! Read the rest of this entry »
Originally I thought this was just going to be a re-telling of my favorite childhood cartoon. I was bullshit when I thought Lion-O was going to stay looking as a child. But if this is what I think, and it’s taking place well after the T-Cats have crashed on 3rd Earth, I’m going to be one happy Reptilian. This looks amazing.
