November’s almost upon us, which means it’s once again time for us to once again sit and watch the Charlie Brown specials for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. These specials are a somewhat of a cultural event giving us a blast from the past and fill us with nostalgia. Another cultural event that recently gave us a mega dose of nostalgia was the critically acclaimed Netflix series, Stranger Things.
Majestic, powerful, mysterious… The legacy of Doctor Strange is one that has remained unmarred for generations. A truly unique hero, his abilities are a mystery to even the most intelligent and well traveled of the Avengers. No matter how brilliantly intelligent or well versed in alien skills, there are some things they just can’t handle alone. As if he needed to be any more magnificent, the newest movie stars Benedict Cumberbath as the Doctor himself – a positively regal man who has stepped perfectly into the role of neurosurgeon turned legendary mystic artist.

Our good friends at Screen Junkies are at it once again, this time taking on X-Men: Apocalypse. The third sequel in the “First Class” trilogy was not well received by critics and fans. You can see our review of the movie here. After nailing the second film, Brian Singer returned to the director’s chair to have supervillain Apocalypse fight the X-Men. Some parts of the film worked, most didn’t. Screen Junkies, never willing to hold a punch, created an “Honest Trailer” for the latest mutant film.
After they flew like leaves on the wind and before they were Con-men, Nathan Fillion and Allen Tudyk took some time to do a little adult screen work under the supervision of pre-Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn in a little web series known as James Gunn’s PG Porn. Everything you love about porn movies… without the sex. Check out their porn-tastic performances below. (more…)
Oh look! Another article about Honest Trailers. Yes, we have indeed discussed the wit and genius of the YouTube series time and time again. From critical bombs to acclaimed masterpieces, no movie is safe from a good ole’ Screen Junkies roasting. They have lampooned so many Hollywood movies over the past few years, that why should we even bother doing another article about them? Because their recent video took aim at perhaps one of the most deserving targets of the year: Batman: The Killing Joke. (more…)
A lot of first looks from San Diego Comic Con 2016 this summer, are beginning to make their way out for public consumption. Marvel Studios, who had the internet abuzz during their Hall H panel at the pop culture convention back in July, left fans disappointed by not releasing any of the footage shown that day online; with the exception of a new Doctor Strange trailer which debuted simultaneously online. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok had no online presence of what played in Hall H for fans, until today.
Stop motion paper animation is one of this NerdBastards favorite things. Tatooine by Jeremy Messersmith, if you haven’t seen it, is a good place to start. Now Wired has gotten into the mix with this latest Data Attack video DC vs. Marvel Box Office Battle. Entertaining and educational, what else could you ask for? (more…)
There’s enough crazy stuff going on every day to drive you to the brink of insanity, or at least drive you to curse at someone in your life who really doesn’t deserve it. We all need something to put a little smile on our face and help us stay out of the red zone of daily hectic life. That may be why there are so many cat videos on the Internet. If you couldn’t find a cat video to help lower your blood pressure today, how about this new video from the Prop Wars series by Sneaky Zebra. It’s just the thing for someone who’s having a rough week so far. (more…)
Over the last 5 years, it has been a tradition at San Diego Comic Con for former Mythbusters star Adam Savage to walk the con floor going incognito, dressed in elaborate cosplays of his own making. He’s appeared in a spacesuit replica from Ridley Scott’s Aliens, the Mercury Spacesuit from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Noface from Spirited Away, Hellboy, Judge Dredd, and more. Given his decades worth of experience in visual effects, prop making, and machine work, he has the tools and the talent to make some truly awe-inspiring cosplays. He also has an incredible amount of patience, an obsession really, to make sure his costumes are 100% screen accurate down to even the smallest of details. For an example, he even spent 10+ years making the spacesuit from Aliens, that’s right, 10 years before he was ready to roll it out at SDCC.
So… at SDCC 2016, what did Savage comes dressed as this year? Well, you might have already seen/heard of his hilarious life-size bear suit from The Revenant complete with a Leo prop! But Adam also came dressed as someone else…. (more…)
