“I miss when SNL was funny” is a statement you often hear around the water cooler, but not today. SNL and Chris Pratt nailed it last night with this parody that isn’t too far from the truth.

There’s a new group of blockbusters coming down the pipe from Marvel, including Bus People, Fancy Ghosts and Some Shopping Carts. (more…)

Boy, this has been some week for Deadpool news. First, our favorite wise crackin’ “Merc with the Mouth” gets a confirmed live action movie deal slated for 2016 (all thanks to that leaked test footage and the internets power to move mountains). Like an endless platter of savory fish tacos, the heaping portion of satisfaction continues. Now, Sideshow Collectibles has announced the first entry in their Marvel Comics 1/6 scale figure series, Deadpool. And sweet Christmas if it isn’t everything you ever wanted in a premium Deadpool figure – 12 inches of red coated righteousness.  The first figure ever to break the 4th wall!   (more…)

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

- 09-11-14Comics, Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

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…)
