If there’s one thing James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies have going for them, it’s a love and appreciation for some amazing music from the ’70s and ’80s… Ok, there are also some amazing characters, story structures, CGI effects, and a hell of a lot more, but those Awesome Mixes are, well, AWESOME! Fans who purchase a copy of the second film for their home collections will be treated to an additional feature that music lovers and fans of the film will absolutely die for: a special music video made just for the fans and it stars David Hasselhoff because… well, he’s the Hof!
Hot on the heels of last week’s first look at Domino (Zazie Beetz) Ryan Reynolds has just tweeted out a first look at Josh Brolin as Cable and it is glorious. Deadpool 2 is shaping up nicely and while some may have had issue with Beetz’s look for Domino, there isn’t a comic book fan alive that can argue that Brolin’s Cable isn’t straight from the comic book pages. Check it out below. (more…)
It’s not even the last season of the show (let alone the last episode of the penultimate season) and Game of Thrones keeps getting better and better. Last week we saw the long-awaited meeting of Daenerys and Jon Snow. Unfortunately, things did not go as well as Jon had planned in their first awkward encounter. Daenerys did allow Jon to mine for dragon glass in her ancestral home in the hopes of the two forming an alliance. Sansa and Bran reunited in Winterfell. Unfortunately, Bran is now not really Bran and with his Three Eyed Raven powers have become someone else and not really able to know how to relate to his sister (evidenced by the fact that he tells her how beautiful she was on the night she was raped). It looks like it’s the last time we will see the San Snakes of Dorne as Cersei gave Ellaria’s daughter a poison kiss and forced her to watch her die. Lastly, Daenerys’ Unsullied army took Casterly Rock, but the Lannister army wasn’t really there as they took over Highgarden where Jamie came face to face with Olenna Tyrell who gave him the ultimate shade with her dying breath. As we are not almost halfway through the seventh season (why is there only 7 episodes?!?), how did this week of Game of Thrones end up?
One of the most repeated criticisms of the DC Extended Universe series of movies so far has been their bleakness, their negativity, and their general sense of nihilism. There’s literally a line in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice where Superman says, “No one stays good in this world.” Great message from the man who stands for truth, justice and the American way, right? Well, an antidote may be coming in the form of a man who’s very much like Superman in terms of super-powers, but now Shazam! will have to find the fun and light-heartedness of the being a superhero in the DCEU.

After a very successful theatrical run ($860.6 million USD!) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to household screens (legally) later this month. Of course this means that the James Gunn directed smarmy spaceman/talking tree/angry trash panda sequel will hit digital and physical video packed with bonus features and deleted scenes, right? Of course! and you can check out one of those features, the gag reel, here, Now! BELOW! (more…)
As you’ve undoubtedly heard, Game of Thrones is the most pirated show in the world. Although millions and millions of people tune into the show every Sunday night on HBO, millions and millions more torrent or stream the show on various pirate sites. If you’re one of the latter, you may already know that the next episode of season 7 has already made its way online. It’s another blow to the premium cable channel who’s been on pins and needles all week worrying about a leak after it was announced they were hacked. Just one thing, this leak didn’t come from the hack, or the hackers. (more…)
Thanks to Netflix, a new generation of fans are being brought into the world of Voltron (with the release of Voltron Legendary Defenders Season 3 just dropping this morning!). Back in the 1980s, kids could play with a special die-cast set of all the tigers and combine them into a tall Voltron set. It was cool, but it was also very expensive so few kids had them and they are highly collectible now. With so many new toys hitting the market, it’s time for a new Voltron set anyone can afford and play with, so LEGO has come to the rescue by approving a fanmade set of the legendary hero!
With the summer movie season winding down, many of the heavy hitters have already hit theaters. While such movies like Beauty and the Beast ($504 Million), Wonder Woman ($396 Million), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 ($387 Million) have been making serious bank, these films also had massive budgets for film production and marketing costs. Sure, they’re making a large amount of money through box office receipts and merchandising, but they don’t have the biggest Return on Investment (ROI) for their massive budgets. Turns out the most successful film of 2017 so far did not involve talking silverware, Amazonians, or superhero raccoons, but instead were small budget horror films.
