Frozen Taking Over Disney Parks – Classic Epcot Ride Being Rebooted and Cinderella Castle To Be Elsa’s

- 09-12-14Film, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

Disney’s Frozen came out almost a year ago and people are still singing that damn “Let it Go”. It’s starting to become as obnoxious as the “It’s a Small World” tune. That’s actually the perfect example for today’s story. Just like “It’s a Small Word”, Frozen is to be inducted as yet another ride at Disney parks where passengers will be trapped on a log chute while a title track plays on an endless loop (I was once trapped on It’s a Small World for 45 minutes while the song played, so you can imagine my deep rooted horror). Hit the jump to read on more about what classic ride is being updated, as well as Disney World’s plan to transform their castle for Elsa. (more…)

What Marvel is Presenting At New York Comic Con Is a Painful Reminder That You Should Have Bought Tickets

Going to New York Comic Con this year? Feel good and smug about it? Well, just so you know, I hate you. I’m super jealous and totally regret not getting tickets. Especially after hearing what Marvel Studios is presenting. They’ll be coming to town showing off some spiffy footage (or more) for two highly anticipated properties, leaving us non attendees to scour the net for leaked butt cam footage or second hand footage descriptions from people who suck at telling stories (they’re the worst!). What could Marvel be showing off that’s got me all hot and bothered? Here, I’ll let Marvel’s head of Television Jeph Loeb explain (or you can simply figure it out from looking at the header graphic, duh!): (more…)

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Isn’t Being Released Until When? Oh, Man!

- 09-09-14Comics, Videogames Posted by Luke Gallagher

Batman-Arkham-Knight-2014-Latest-Wallpaper

Maybe it’s just me, but I only know a handful of people who have adopted to next generation gaming. I know more people who are instead holding off on getting an X-Box One or Playstation 4 until better gaming titles are released. With the Holidays around the corner, there happens to be a slew of big titles coming. Titles that will undoubtedly push a few fence sitters over to fresher gaming pastures.  One of the biggest, most anticipated, and outright siiiiick looking titles – Batman Arkham Knight - was arguably the sole reason to buy a new system before the end of 2014.  Well, unfortunately, those who were ready to throw their money at the nearest Gamestop will have to wait. How long? I don’t think you wanna know. But, hey, there is some good news too! (more…)

Kevin Smith No Longer Too Fat for 40 – The Director Shares His Weight Loss Secret

- 08-30-14Cool Stuff, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

yoga-hosers-105885

Kevin Smith is a successful writer, director, podcaster and traveling story teller. He is all those things, yet, most folks just think of him as that funny fat guy who talks a lot and made those Jay and Silent Bob movies.

If you’ve been paying attention to Smith these days, you may have noticed that he’s done a complete 180. Not only has he jumped film genres, but the sharp tongued funnyman has lost a tremendous amount of weight.

Having Tweeted the photo above earlier today from the set of his latest film Yoga Hosers, fans will no longer see Smith as a funny fat man, and instead just a funny man.

How’d he do it? Smith has a rather remarkably simple tip. (more…)

Karen Gillan Takes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Dressed as…The Pink Ranger (Umm, What?)

- 08-29-14Funny Videos, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

gillen-ALS

Just when you thought the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge fad (a good charitable fad that has served its purpose in raising ALS awareness, but still, a fad) is behind us, Doctor Who and Guardians of The Galaxy star Karen Gillan answered Matt Smith’s Nomination and keeps the awareness and cold water flowing.

Everyone’s favorite red head (her hair is growing back nicely) gets style points for dressing up as the Pink Power Ranger and having the Red Ranger and a little person dressed as the Green Ranger get her wet (no, that was not a sexual innuendo). Why the Power Rangers theme? No clue, it’s not explained. That’s what makes it great. The random absurdity of it. (more…)

‘Yoga Hosers’ Will Reunite Stan Lee and Kevin Smith

- 08-28-14Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

stan-lee-kevin-smith-102560

Writer/director Kevin Smith built his career off the back of his love for comic books and geek fandom. While his proclivities for geek culture seeped into many of his movies, none so more than his 1995 romantic comedy Mallrats.

Besides the film featuring a main character who collects comic books and has a weird obsession with super hero sex organs, the stand out fan-boy moment is when Marvel comics legend Stan Lee makes a cameo as himself and tells a story about “the girl that got away”.

A delightful and inspiring scene on what was otherwise a juvenile movie. Really, though, I think Smith simply wrote the scene as an excuse to work with one of his comic book heroes. Whatever the case, it worked. Smith and Lee have become life long friends. A geeks dream come true.

Now, 20 years later (feeling old are you?) Kevin Smith and Stan Lee will reunite for Smith’s upcoming film Yoga Hosers.
