Funny Video Reveals the ‘S#!t Nerds Never Say’

- 10-15-13Funny Videos, Nerd Culture Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

shit-nerds-never-sayRemember when that viral video/meme about the “Shit ______ Never Say” was making the rounds? That is not a rhetorical question, the speed of the internet has rotted my brain away to the point where I don’t know if it was last month or sometime shortly after penicillin was discovered.

Regardless, it is old, outdated and therefore no long funny, right? WRONG. This past weekend Filmmaker Bill Scurry took to New York Comic-Con to breath new life into the long dead burnout husk of a joke with some rather amusing (and telling results.) The Next 60 seconds hits pretty close to home with ‘Shit Nerds Never Say‘ from con attendees including the most convincing Lloyd Kaufman of Troma fame cosplay I have ever seen. I defy you to disagree with Scurry’s findings. Video up after the jump. (more…)

WATCH: The Amazing Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short

- 10-15-13Comics, Film, TV Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Superman-75-Animated-ShortFans of comic books and the superhero genre in general have to give credit where credit is due… and that is to big blue. He was the guy that kicked off this crazy little cape and tights thing way back in 1938 after all. I am sure you are already aware that Superman turns a spry 75 years old this year and DC Comics has been doing a lot to celebrate the Man of Steel’s diamond anniversary, including a new animated short that debuted over the weekend at New York Comic-Con. Covering the Last Son of Krypton’s full 75 year history (even the parts we’d want to forget like the mullet/earring combo and the extremely lame Red and Blue days,) in this amazingly well done 2 minutes of animation. Check it out after the jump. (more…)

The Leaked Script for George Miller’s ‘Justice League: Mortal’ Tells a Great Cautionary Tale

- 10-08-13Comics, Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

george-miller-justice-league-mortal

Just not in the way the writers intended…

For the past few years we’ve only spoken of George Miller‘s mysterious (and long dead) Justice League project in hushed tones filled with speculation and rumor. We know that back in 2007  production on Justice League: Mortal was suddenly halted and the superhero team-up flick (that predates the Marvel Cinematic Universe FYI.,) faded off into the limbo of lost movies… a project that would eternally be shrouded mystery. That is until now. Superhero Movie News leaked an apparently authentic draft of the script online late last night. I have read it, and to quickly summarize: we’re very lucky this JLA movie was DOA. VERY damn we are lucky. (more…)

Footage From ‘Godzilla’ Reboot is Here, Is Awesome

- 10-04-13Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Gozzilla-Reboot-Footage

Oh thank you Legendary Pictures. Thank you.

A teaser trailer filled with footage from Gareth Edwards‘s new westernization of the Japanese kaiju classic, Godzilla, has stomped its way onto the internet.  To sum it up in a few words… It looks perfect. In fact it looks so good I’m not going to sully the the minute and half by evening mentioning or making comparison the previous attempt at making a North American version of the King of the Monsters.

In fact when this movie finally hits theaters May 16th 2014, I believe all memory of the previous one will be wiped clean from our collective memories and we can finally find joy in our hearts again because if this teaser is any indication, we are going to get exactly what we should. A monster mashing, building crashing, radioactive breath having cinematic slice of perfect.

Okay, I maybe a little excited for this, but you have to admit it looks damn good. Word is that we should see a trailer on the 3rd of November. For now? You can check out the teaser below.  (more…)

Three New ‘Machete Kills’ Clips Because Boobs or Something

- 10-02-13Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Machete Kills - Danny trejo and Michelle Rodriguez

With it’s release date looming (October 11), it’s nice to see the people behind Machete Kills aren’t going to mess around and leave anything to our collective imaginations. Oh sure, some movies rely on things like teasers and trailers and little featurettes to slowly build hype before hitting theatres, but not Robert Rodriguez et al. Nope, so far they have released so many clips from this Grindhouse inspired sequel that I am guessing only about five minutes remains unseen.

Why tease and titillate a film audience when you can let it all hang out like it’s last call at a Tijuana saloon and the donkey has already left…

Up after the jump we get treated to Charlie Sheen with the absolute best presidential campaign ad featuring a machine gun (sorry John McCain), Michelle Rodriguez sports an eye-patch and shows us how when one sense is lost another grows stronger, and finally, a wonderful re-enactment of grandmas old saying ‘don’t get distracted by cleavage and hairspray.’

Here’s the SDCC ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Teaser in HD, Plus Possible Plot Synopsis

- 09-26-13Comics, Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Avengers 2 Movie - Age of Ultron

Yesterday leaked footage from San Diego Comic-Con featuring the teaser from Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron was making the rounds. It was grainy, shaky and I think filmed with a stapler.  Luckily someone’s gone and released an HD version of the minute long teaser for Iron Man and Friends 2: Avenge Harder.

But wait, There’s more! A possible plot synopsis was uploaded to the Internet Movie Database today giving us a few more shreds of info to chew on!

Both are up after the jump.

Check Out This Awesome Animated Open Letter to J.J. Abrams About Star Wars

- 09-26-13Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

star-wars-jj-abrams

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that you probably have an opinion on how J.J. Abrams should handle the next Star Wars movie. If you don’t (or if your opinion gets clogged up with prequel rage and you just sit in a corner rocking back and forth muttering, “no Jar-Jar, no Jar-Jar,” and some nonsense about how making a movie will somehow sexually interfere with the abstract concept of your childhood) here is a video that can help.

Prescott Harvey (from the creative agency Sincerely, Truman) and his team have created this beautifully animated video offering Abrams four suggestions on how he can make a galaxy far, far away closer to what we want. Check it out: (more…)

Casting Rumor Points to Wonder Woman in ‘Batman vs. Superman’

- 09-25-13Comics, Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Batman-vs-Wonder-Woman-vs-Superman

Ok… ‘Points to’ is strong phrasing… How about gently nudges in the general direction that may or may not contain a certain Amazonian princess.

Apparently Brendon Connelly over at Bleeding Cool has caught wind of a recent casting call for the upcoming (and still untitled) Man of Steel sequel/Batman vs Superman movie. The admittedly vague article says that Warner Bros. is looking for a female between 25 and 33 that is ‘physically strong.’ Apparently this has led some agencies to assume that they are sending actresses to audition for the role as Wonder Woman.

Here’s That Sexy ‘Walking Dead’ Costume No One Wanted

- 09-20-13Comics, TV Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

grimes_costume_package

I think we can all agree upon the inherit sex appeal of AMC‘s The Walking Dead. It has to be the sassiest show on TV right now, and as if to capitalize on the hot hotness of it all, SpiritHalloween.com is selling the perfect costume to show off the steaming sexuality of the post-zombie apocalypse. For just $49.99 you can go out trick or treating as ‘Sassy Rick Grimes’. Here’s the product description:

Take control of the group and lead them all to survival when you sport this officially licensed Walking Dead Sassy Rick Grimes Women’s Costume. Sheriff outfit comes complete with shirt and functional pockets, skirt, hat, badge and belt.

Functional pockets? SpirtHalloween, you spoil us.

Just one thing, and I don’t want to be one of those nitpicking purists but the costume could have been a little more authentic had they included ‘stuff’ and ‘things.’

You can check out a bigger photo of the costume after the jump.

So, About That ‘Jurassic World’ Pitch Trailer…

- 09-11-13Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

jurassic-world-Universal-Pictures

Hot on the heels of the official announcement that Jurassic World, the much delayed forth in a franchise hellbent on squeezing every last little drop of blood out of a Micheal Crichton novel (figuratively) encased in amber, will hit theaters the summer of 2015 comes this. A video that was uploaded in the wee hours of the morning, from a YouTube user claiming shown at the recent Star Wars Celebration Europe II. 

The following is the text from the original poster and you can check the video out after the jump:

“All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”
