2015 was a good year for new movie and TV fun. It brought us Galavant, The Librarians, iZombie, The Flash. Agents of SHIELD hit its stride. Age of Ultron was the Golden Corral buffet of comic book action while Ant-Man delivered a small concentrated dose of charm. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation was the most sprawling…
Leigh Lahav’s new video perfectly encapsulates why we’ll be forever watching the MCU... at least until the triplets are born or Kurt Russell sends us all back to the Stone Age.
Leave it to Hiddleston to make the words “Big League Chew” seem menacing.
Make sure you read ALL THE COMMENTS. They are all HILARIOUS. (sidenote: I'm glad they at least changed it from Arabic to Tengwar in the item name)
Highlights: the sound guy's tusken raider impression (b/c we totally did that in college), the Piggy/Kermit cameo, Lobot, the probe droid, Salacious Crumb, Chewie, and Nien Nunb. And best stay for the credits, too, for the McConaughey ramble!
Someone made this amazing fan trailer for Return of the Jedi, incorporating many of the unsettling tropes characteristic of David Lynch's style. Yoda talking backwards is going to haunt your dreams tonight.
Lily has a good point. Plenty of letters left in the alphabet.
If you're feeling those Friday morning doldrums, antsy for the weekend to start already, pep yourself up with the unbridled exuberance that is the Mario Kart 8 soundtrack. This music would even make me want to dash around and clean the house.
BBC Radio 1 got Arthur Darvill to sing on-air about his life post-Doctor Who.
This is like a perfect blend of io9 catnip. Watch the first one for the amazing Joffrey crazy-flails, but the second is just well done all around. The singer has a really great voice, although they certainly contorted the lyrics more than a few places to fit the syllables into the tune.
Remember when it was announced David O. Russell would direct a movie adaptation of the Playstation 3 blockbuster action/adventure series Uncharted? It was supposed to star Mark Wahlberg and Robert de Niro and be about how Nathan Drake belongs in this dynastic family of treasure hunters? I haven't really played more…
IS IT 8:00 PM YET?!!
Since Amazon streaming was where I caught up on the last 2 seasons of Veronica Mars, I went back to look up the movie's VOD release and noticed this amusing bit of weirdness in the search results.
Anyone want to venture a guess on what those glowing green rods by the bridge are? (at 2:10)
Corgi omuraisu, of course.
B/c Joseph Campbell will ruin your life. As Jack Slater said to Arnold Schwarzenagger, "You've brought me nothing but pain."
"I've been working on that one since the third grade."
Amazon has locked up exclusive streaming rights to all 3 seasons of Veronica Mars, which will be great for those of us who want to catch up on the show before the movie hits in March. I only had the 1st season boxes, which had a defective disc that skipped and seized up mid-episode, so I know what I'll be watching…
Pacific Rim on Tesla coils. 'Nuff said.
In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, a Carolina Panthers player declared his alma mater to be "Hogwarts" in the opening minutes of Sunday Night Football. I was so certain of what I thought I'd just heard but was still incredulous b/c I wasn't paying enough attention to the screen to see the guy hamming it up in…
