Screen Junkies are at it again this time giving Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange the Honest Trailer Treatment. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel when it comes to Marvel origin movies. Marvel has a set path and follows it to success every time, just be like Iron Man without being like Iron Man. Watch the video below and you’ll see what we’re talking about. (more…)
It was destined to happen, after President Luthor declared the Daily Planet “Fake News” someone had to come in and set things right. Who better to replace Perry White than the man who unmasked that criminal, web-crawling Spider-Man. It’s a fact that J. Jonah Jameson isn’t going to take Lois or Clark’s crap, he’s there to sell newspapers, not change the world. Check out what happens when J.J. shows up for his first day running the Daily Planet.

Doctor Strange, the most recent installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has certainly left its mark. Now up for an Oscar for Visual Effects, it has earned its place among its better known partner films. In anticipation of the film’s DVD/Bluray release date, Marvel Studios has released a teaser for the Doctor Strange gag reel. It’s as funny as one would expect.
Check it out below: (more…)
For the last couple of weeks now, Mark Hamill has been enjoying giving his old Joker voice some exercise by imbuing the tweets of the new President of the United States with a decidedly different clown vibe. Given that these stories frequently make our trending post list to the right, we can see that you’ve been enjoying them too, so in that spirit, another DC Animated Universe actor has gotten in on the fun because every Joker needs a Harley Quinn. If you saw yesterday’s Meet the Press, then you know where this is going… (more…)
Ever dreamed of teaming up with Captain America? Who hasn’t? Short of an adventurous night out with an outgoing Cosplayer, being buddy buddy with ole Cap is only ever a fantasy in the minds eye. But what if there was a chance to spend a day with Captain America actor Chris Evans – to be held up in a mysterious room together as you’re forced to combine your wits and escape a seemingly inescapable room? Alright, maybe not everyone has pictured that exact scenario but the opportunity for it is here! (more…)
Throughout the original Star Wars Trilogy, Han Solo had the looming threat of Jabba The Hutt looming over his head. Because he owed money to the intergalactic gangster, he was always one second away from abandoning the Rebellion so that he could remain in hiding. Jabba dispatched bounty hunter Boba Fett after him and when finally caught, Han was captured and frozen in carbonite, needing Luke and the gang to rescue him in Return of the Jedi. When we finally met him, he was a larger than life (and disgusting) space slug that ran his own palace under his iron fist and was finally stopped by Leia. But, was he really a bad guy?
For all the joy that our favourite movies bring us by being clever and funny and exciting, there is another level of enjoyment altogether that comes with giving them a little poke in their flaws. Nothing makes it clear how much you love something like an affectionate roast. And no one loves movies quite like the guys at Cinema Sins. They have made it their mission to give every movie a thorough critique, with every plot hole, every clumsy moment, every hastily made decision exposed. No release is immune from the treatment and this week they’ve taken on Deadpool. (more…)
No one likes The Star Wars Holiday Special….and no one SHOULD. Even George Lucas has expressed regret over allowing it to happen. But here we are again. All those Wookiee Life day memories come flooding back, thanks to this newest holiday video featuring Chewbacca.
Chewie sings the Wookiee version of “Silent Night”. The clip comprises several clips from across all the Star Wars movies, and sounds just as one might expect – like a symphony of coke cans being streaked across a desk. It’s magical. (more…)
Back in 1995, when the first of the Mortal Kombat game series was still dancing (or splattering blood) in people heads, the impossible happened: news of a Mortal Kombat movie! Images of bloody spinal cords, gory decapitations, and perhaps a few sweet ‘Flawless Victories’ danced in the skulls of fans. Of course, an R rated, extreme, Kung Fu, violence-fest is NOT the film that was delivered. Still, at the time, it was the greatest damn movie to anyone in the second grade. Even now, 20+ years later, it still holds up as the best film adaptation of a video game. Given the MK movie featured a giant four-armed man puppet getting punched in the dick, that’s saying something!
Of course, 2 years later, the dumber-than-a-bag-of-hammers Mortal Kombat Annihilation happened and shat in everyones cereal.
Looking back at these two earmarks in video game movie history, are the guys from Screen Junkies. They’ve given the MK movie franchise the ole’ Honest Trailer treatment. As one might expect, they were not kind. (more…)
