Everyone can use a little pressure relief and for many, video games are the outlet to let off some steam after a long day in the trenches of real life. Activision recognizes this and used it in their latest Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare live action trailer featuring Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and the ever bad boy actor Danny McBride. Take a five-minute break from your hectic day to check out the video below. (more…)
Stop if us if you’ve heard this one, but an online streaming channel is bringing back a beloved hit from the 80s! It’s a story that seems to make the news every other week, but this time it involves your second favourite plot device, a talking car. If you have fond memories of the classic NBC series Knight Rider, then there’s good news for you because Machinima is bringing it back, and to help them out, they’ve recruited a man that knows about the sacred love between a man and his car as they save the world together, Fast & Furious and Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin.

The title says it all, it’s not my thing, but it’s also something that can’t be avoided in its entirety. That means bit the bullet and prepare yourself for some snuggled up Gilmore Girls binge watching come November 25th. Consider it payback or paying it forward for those weekends Marvel releases a new Netflix series and your significant other watches with you, although you can pretty much tell they would rather be somewhere else. Suck it up and watch. (more…)
Remember a few years ago when Warner Bros. announced that Ben Affleck would be playing the Caped Crusader in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice? The reaction was not overly heart-warming. Even though Affleck had done a lot of growing in the decade after Daredevil, there were a lot of us who could not accept Batffleck until we saw the finished movie and realized, “Hey, he’s not bad.” (Because nerds play it cool.) So now we’re all eagerly anticipating the next Batman movie, and even though Warner Bros. doesn’t even have it scheduled yet, Affleck is already diligently working on the script in what he calls “full-on Batman research mode.” (more…)
Superman might be long gone – not dead, but temporarily forgotten – so it’s back to the Supergirl Power Hour. It’s Supergirl’s (Melissa Benoist) show, after all and despite the brief, two-episode interlude where Supergirl and Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) got to play Super-Cousins together (to the delight of millions of fans), a return to the status quo, welcome or not, was not far behind, ultimately leaving fans with a Superman-sized hole in their collective hearts. But just as one superhero exits, another superhero enters, Olivia Marsdin (Lynda Carter, TV’s Wonder Woman), the first female president of the United States. To Supergirl and her human alter ego, Kara Danvers and her superhero counterpart, intrepid cub reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media, Marsdin is the real thing, a bona fide hero. She might not have superpowers, but to Supergirl, she might as well have them.
You know what’s totally heinous? Being reminded how old you are. But, hey, that’s what happens when reflecting on pop culture classics of yesteryear. If you’re a child of the 80’s/early 90s’, and remember Bill and Ted, then you’re an old dude (or babe). It’s been a whopping 27 years (Whoa!) since rockin’ nitwits Bill S Preston Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan hopped in a phone booth and traveled through time, meeting up with historic figures like Genghis Khan, Socrates (pronounced in Bill & Ted speak as “So Crates”), Billy The Kid, Abe Lincoln, Joan of Arc and Napoleon. And, 25 years, since their follow up sequel Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, which saw the happily dimwitted duo go the hell (literally) and back.
Regardless of the passage time, and despite the long promises of a 3rd movie from actors Keanu Reeves and Alex Winters, the fandom for Bill and Ted is still strong. So much so, that NECA, purveyors of toys and collectibles from the hottest IPs, have released a most triumphant figurine boxed set. (more…)
As many of you already know, director Tim Miller abruptly stepped down from directing the Deadpool 2 movie several days ago. However, no one really knew why he did, especially considering the success of the first film. And now reports are coming out as what really happened. As it turns out, the tipping point eventually came over the decision as to who would play Cable. In short, Miller was in favor of Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights), but Ryan Reynolds wanted to go another route, although there are no specifics as to who he wanted to play the role.
Netflix and Marvel have been hitting it out of the park. We already have 2 seasons of Daredevil, the first season of Jessica Jones, the first season of Luke Cage, and are about to get Iron Fist early next year before all the street level combine in The Defenders. Each show does a great job showing the gritty side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) was a pleasant surprise and it dealt with such hard-hitting issues as rape and control in a well-made psychological thriller and was told through the viewpoint from its female lead.
