ABOVE: MSTDP by Kat Haynes .If you thought Mystery Science theater was a hoot and a holler before,  then get a load of this mashup! Nothing says breaking the third, fourth and fifth wall of cinema like our lovable man in red, Deadpool. I think if this had been part of the crowd-funding options that whole project would’ve smashed records, but hey the idea can continue to exist in our dreams.  (more…)

joker-and-harley

The romantic relationship between Dr Harleen Quinzel and her once psychiatric patient, the Joker, is once of popular culture’s most compelling connections. One of the comic world’s best fleshed out exploration of Stockholm syndrome and domestic abuse, Harley Quinn is such a captivating character because you understand why she makes so many bad decisions when it comes to matters of the heart. You fall in love with her. But, as an outsider, you also see the pain in her relationship, in the way the Joker manipulates her, in the way he breaks her down from a strong and intelligent woman to a pet he can control.

Take your mind back to the scene in Back to the Future Part II when Marty and Doc arrive in the year 2015. In order to fit in, Doc gives Marty a self-drying/self-fitting coat, a reflective hat, and has Marty pull his jean pockets inside out (which is the style in 2015). But Doc also gives Marty a pair of self-lacing Nike high-top sneakers, which are functional, easy, and spares the back of the lazy man from having to bend over to tie them. But this is the year 2016 now, we have hoverboards (sort of), so the question must be asked: where are our power laces, Nikes? The answer, they’ll be in a store near you later this fall. (more…)

Since their debut in the 80’s, many kids have dreamt of owning a giant Transformer. Michael Bay brought those fantasies to the big screen when he made the first live action Transformers movie. Now, a Turkish company has embraced its inner God Complex and created a real life transforming robot. Should we have done this? Is the world ready for this? What does Michael Bay think? (more…)

Being a nerd is hard work. You burn a lot of calories caring about things so passionately, following them intently and debating them obstinately. It’s important to replenish yourself with some sweet, sweet sustenance before you Hulk-out on your friends and loved ones over whether or not that fall should have killed Rhodey. When the time comes to recharge your batteries, where better than someplace designed specifically with nerds in mind? Sometimes it’s just nice to be among your own people. This article explores the best places in the world to enjoy some nerd-dom while you eat, with everything from an eatery with an actual TARDIS to a bar designed by H.R. Giger himself. It’s kinda like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, except that you won’t have to put up with the guy with the least right to pretentiousness pretentiously pronouncing his last name. So shut the front door and buckle up, because this gangsta trip to Nerdy Flavortown is gonna be off the hook!

It’s here! It’s finally here! One box set to rule them all! The (ultimate) Middle-Earth Limited Collectors Edition has landed as majesticly as the Great Eagles. It’s no secret that over the course of filming the LOTR films mountains of footage was never used (even in the laboriusly extended directors cuts), including bloopers and outtakes. But what is it? Where can you get one, and most importantly WHEN? (more…)

Julian Checkley took his Batman Cosplay based on the Batman: Arkham Origins video game to another level, adding gadget after gadget until breaking the Guinness World Record for Functional Gadgets on a Cosplay Suit.

This is a fantastic Batman Suit with 23 fully functional gadgets. Let’s take a look. (more…)
