With summer con season winding down, one of the newer kids on the comic/pop-culture convention scene wrapped up this past weekend. The Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo enjoyed it’s sophomore year by shattering last years attendance by Shatnering those in attendance. You could say the more than 13,000 attendees experienced the Wrath of Con and even Rescue 911 couldn’t save them from getting T.J. Hooked… uh, um, I am trying to say that William Shatner was there through the power of puns because someone told me the kids are really into puns these days, ok?
Anyway, yes Captain Kirk was there and it was as awesome as you’d expect which would then make for a decently successful expo, right? Sure, but Sask Expo 2015 wasn’t satisfied with just being decently successful, it was shooting for a spectacular second year. Did it cross into the final frontier of fantastic? Will I keep ham handedly forcing these Shatner puns?
Let’s find out! (more…)
It’s almost like we never abandoned you for two months.
Jeremy and Jason have returned, but where were they and who have they become?! Learn about their harrowing tale (busy working and playing Playstation) and also learn about their thoughts on Stephen Colbert‘s late night takeover, Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s takeover of The Apprentice, Batman V. Bourne, Godzilla V. King Kong, the almost Pulp Fiction cast, the unkillable Fantastic Four franchise, gritty Mary Poppins, sex bot ethics (RIP HitchBot), plus Donald Trump: herald of the end times.
DOUBLE BONUS PLUS: an all new, all nude edition of #TacoTalk. (more…)
That is, he actually kinda sorta looks like he is suppose to look.
When the internet got it’s first look at Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse in the villains eponymous X-Men movie, well let’s say it was less than kind. Yes, we all know he bore an uncanny resemblance to a certain oozy purple Power Ranger villain and yes it was kind of rough seeing the big budget Hollywood blockbuster costume pale in comparison to some great, source clinging cosplay. Well, maybe that’s not his final form?
XMenNewz has posted some photos that, if legit, might make even the most cynical X-Fan rest a little easier about En Sabah Nur’s big screen debut. It also might spoil parts of the movie so the pic and a super special surprise bonus are up after the jump. (more…)
For anyone with lingering doubts on how the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil will portray Marvel’s premier pistol packing vigilante, The Punisher, well this should sort those out. Jon Bernthal tweeted a photo that clearly displays they are getting something right this time around. (more…)
Well, the internet seems to think there is… This morning a picture started making the rounds on Reddit (and we all know that they can’t post something there if it’s not true…) reportedly from an alleged Warner Bros. Animation office of some kind showing what appears to be posters of possible animated productions that the studio may or may not be producing. One of these supposed posters features what could possible be an indication of what could be an all new Justice League cartoon… Begin wild speculation now! (more…)
If you are familiar with the Fallout games then you already know the shear joy of wandering the wastelands and exploring. Spending endless hours tooling around the post-apocalypse gathering bobby pins and teddy bears and running across the odd TARDIS here and there or a nuked fridge complete with fedora wearing archaeologist (what’s left of him at least.)
When Bethesda rolled out the latest in the series, Fallout 4, at E3 this year we were treated to more than a few videos showing off what awaits in what is left of Boston. I am sure the game will have a story about saving something or someone and probably a whole wack of quests about just that, but don’t let those distract you from what you are really there to do. The true meaning of the game will be finding the burnt out husk of a bar with a skeleton in a postal uniform and a particular rotund feral goul and finding out if they do know your name.
Anyway, wanna see 5 minutes of Fallout 4 exploration footage? (more…)
Surrounded by an ocean of discarded lanyards, empty hand sanitizer bottles, nerd tears, and a slowly dissipating funk cloud, it’s Bastard-Con 2015!, North America’s 4th biggest wholly audio nerd convention.
This year, Jeremy and Jason offer an exclusive (ish) preview of X-Men: Apoplectic, Deadpool: F*ck Your Face, Star Wars Episode 7: Practical Magic, Batman V. Superman V. Expectations V. Ash V. Evil Dead V. Studio Crocodile Tears.
by…rising a machine or something.
Hey Internet, do you like movies about ineffective robots that go back in time to muddled and defective plots riddled with holes? Then do we have a movie for you. Yes, Terminator Genisys is out and it is not good so we turned on the microphones and were unnecessarily harsh on ol’Arnie’s new movie. (Young Arnie was mostly saved from the rancor because he’s not really real.) (more…)
Abducted and probed thoroughly and lovingly by aliens or rednecks, Jeremy and Jason made their escape after a month in captivity, their only motivation to go home and podcast for you fine people. So… here’s the RadioBastard Podcast, live (taped) and in living color (it’s audio).
On the show this time: Raptor Strike Force Bravo (Jurassic World), The Rock vs. Skyscrapers, depressing Disney cartoons, Jason shouts at SDCC attendees, and one more sexy primate.
From the harsh terrible wastelands (the internet) come two brave heroes (chubby guys with microphones) to do battle with (talk about) the evils of this world (ok, that last bit might be pretty accurate.) This week, Jeremy and Jason run through how Snoop Dogg failed grade 8 history, why Alan Thicke and his wife aced sex-ed, and where Harry Shearer will have to accept that job has the school janitor.
Also on this weeks show: (more…)
