Jason McAnelly

  • Profile: Jason is perhaps best known to everyone as “that one guy who did that thing,” but few people know of his struggles in life. After making a name for himself training zombies to make pasta, he wandered the earth in search of the sacred cheese. Though the cheese eluded him, he discovered a talent for writing and has been working on perfecting his skills ever since. He is currently working on a fantasy novel and tapping keys for the folks at NerdBastards. Eventually, he will be rich and famous and way cooler than you.

Westworld Season 1, Episode 3 Air Date 10/23/16 Pictured: Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Robert Ford

Back in 1973 (a year some of our readers may even be old enough to remember), there was a movie by the name of Westworld that was destined to become a cult classic. Now, some 40+ years later, Hollywood has finally decided it’s time for another crack at it. The marketing has been hitting the Internets for weeks thus far and now, shortly before the release is scheduled, HBO is sending us yet another look at their creation. Scroll on to check out the newest Westworld trailer, ‘Dreams’. (more…)

Fans of the The Big Lebowski (which should include anyone with good taste) may remember a character by the name of ‘The Jesus’. He was a bowling rival to the titular character and just happened to be played by John Turturro. Now, if the rumors are correct, The Jesus may be making his way back to the big screen via a spin-off centered around his character. (more…)

batman villains

One of the chief complaints that even fans of Gotham have about the show is the seeming desperation of its writers to cram in as many iconic Batman villains as possible. While we’ve seen certain villains work out rather exceptionally (Riddler and Penguin in particular), others have been less-than-stellar. Still, the need to keep bringing in more baddies is not something that will be subsiding anytime soon. In fact, according to producers of the show, we’ll be getting the chance to see at least three incredibly familiar faces as the show goes on – Harley, Killer Croc and Solomon Grundy. (more…)

The time is fast approaching when fans of The Tick will have their squishy vengeance against the TV networks what refused to continue telling his epic story. He’s been limited to 3 seasons in cartoony format and just one season in the live-action format. Now, The Tick is back and he’s looking for that thing he’s always looking for – JUSTICE! But before we can see him in all his bright blue glory, we have to settle for some pics from the set. Scroll on, o’ lover of costumed shenanigans, for there are Tick pics aplenty! (more…)

killing jokee

The long-awaited release of one of the most memorable Batman stories ever – Batman: The Killing Joke – is almost upon us. In just a few short weeks some lucky folks will be able to check it out on the big screen. The rest of us, however, will likely just be picking up a hard copy when they’re released a week later. But, to whet our appetites, the folks at DC are giving us a small taste. Check out a short video and a few minutes of The Killing Joke in the video below. (more…)

lost in space

Netflix has been pretty damned good about bringing viewers some quality “television” shows over the past few years. Their foray into producing their own series has brought us such amazing programs as House of Cards, Daredevil and more. Now they’ll be jumping on the reboot bandwagon, though the property they’ve chosen to bring back is one that just might be ripe for a new interpretation. What show is that, you ask? The 1960s sci-fi classic Lost in Space. (more…)

Kellan Lutz

A lot of folks out there grew up with The Masters of the Universe as one of their staple cartoons. And though it was originally conceived as little more than a way to sell some toys, the franchise has taken on a life of its own and continues to adapt and adopt into the present day. The latest attempt at bringing the muscle-bound He-Man back into the limelight involves a second attempt at the big screen. Now, it seems as if Sony Pictures may have their eyes on the guy they wish to play the lead – Kellan Lutz. (more…)

rogue one cast

There’s a tendency out there in Internet Land to panic whenever something appears to be going wrong. What’s worse, plenty of people have little-to-no idea how a movie is put together and so when they hear a word like “reshoots”, they freak the hell out. So is the case with the next flick from the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. To be fair, when some movies go back for reshoots, it’s because the execs have no faith the movie will stand on its own given its current incarnation. With Rogue One, however, both director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm guru Kathleen Kennedy are stepping up to reassure the fans that it’s no big deal. (more…)

Because we live in a world where it’s cheaper and easier to remake an old movie rather than pay writers to come up with something new, there is another old classic in the (re)works. This time around, the recycling machine has spit out 1974’s Death Wish. The remake has already secured one of Hollywood’s biggest actors for the lead role and now it looks like they have their new directorEli Roth. (more…)

shrek angry

It’s been a while since the first Shrek movie came to the big screen and dazzled audiences with its charm and genuinely clever sense of humor. It’s been 15 years, in fact. Another Shrek dropped in 2004 and had an equally good reception. Then the downhill spiral began with Shrek the Third (2007) and Shrek Forever After (2010). Now, the new holders of DreamWorks Animation hope to bring the big, green bastard back. Scroll on to learn the how and why of it. (more…)
