It is practically impossible to find a person in an English speaking country right now who hasn’t heard of Game of Thrones. The HBO show has taken western culture by storm in a way that is almost unrivalled by any other piece of modern popular culture. Based on the still unfinished series of novels by George R. R. Martin, the series has launched the fantasy genre into mainstream viewing in an almost unique way. (more…)
Yet again, it’s another movie that sets my Dredd Sequel Senses screaming into the night. We can get a movie about Angry Birds from a one-dimensional point and click video game, but we can’t see Karl Urban‘s Dredd bring justice and save Mega City One from Judge Death. No… we’ve got to see this. Just click-through and watch the damn trailer, I’m to angry to write any more intro. (more…)
I was really hoping that someone had photo-shopped an Iron Throne made out of Emmys instead of swords because it would be very apropos to Game of Thrones virtual sweep last night at the 67th Annual Emmy Awards. The HBO series grabbed 12 Emmy Awards last night, breaking West Wing‘s (1st Season) 9 Emmy award wins in 2000 for a single season. Game of Thrones had earlier won 8 Emmy awards at the Creative Arts Emmys which celebrates technical and other similar achievements in American television programming. Which four did the series win last night to push them over the top? (more…)
While Peter Dinklage has been killing it on Game of Thrones, his voice over work in Destiny has left quite a lot to be desired by players. Most chalked it up to the actor taking a job he really wasn’t interested in and when they lob great handfuls of cash in your face for a few hours work in a studio, who can blame him for cashing in. Yesterday the big 2.0 Destiny patch went live with the added replacement of Dinklage’s voice over work as Ghost by veteran voice actor Nolan North. How do the two compare? (more…)
Like the “average” summer movie fare, Pixels has good stuff and bad stuff. Like most films that want to be profitable and seen as a “hit” in the eyes of the public, the question must that must be asked is “does the good stuff outweigh the bad stuff?” If you’re an eager pre-teen movie-goer, a parent of an eager pre-teen movie-goer, or a thirtysomething who really digs some deep-reaching retro references, then Pixels is probably right up your alley. And if you don’t fall into one of those categories? Well, let’s just say that your princess might be in another castle.
Disney has been going trigger happy with their acquisition and production of Live-Action re-tellings of their animated works due to the overwhelming popularity of Maleficent & Cinderella these past two years. So their roster of films currently includes The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Pinocchio, Tinker Bell, and Cinderella’s Prince. Yeah you saw that right, The Prince is getting a prequel live-action, but they aren’t stopping there.
Maidens of Westerous get ready to swoon, the Halfman is about to pick up the mic and let loose with some rocking crooning. To help the comedy fundraiser Red Nose Day, Peter Dinklage teamed up with Coldplay to deliver the best musical Game of Thrones wrap up ever put to music. (more…)
The first full length Futurama movie based on the episode Anthology of Interest II from 2002 has its first trailer online!
Wait… who’s that? Sorry, I gotta take this call, I’ll only be a moment. What? I’m trying to do a post here man. Are you sure? You’re just messing with me aren’t you? Pinky swear? OK, I believe you.
I’m being told this isn’t a Futurama movie by Matt Groening, but an Adam Sandler movie called PIXELS. That’s what I get for not paying attention to the opening. I’m sure this was also an episode of The Simpsons, but I was too lazy to look it up. So there’s a new trailer out for Pixels starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage, and Josh Gad. Wait… where’s David Spade and Chris Rock? I thought this was an Adam Sandler movie… (more…)
We’ve been teased, we’ve been clipped, and now we’re finally getting … trailerd… trailered(?). That’s right the first trailer for Season Five of HBO and George R. R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones has finally hit the Internet. (more…)
One of the interesting and fun things I love about fandoms is the periods between seasons and episodes when fans gather to discuss the series details, spin and speculate about why things happened, and what might possibly happen next. George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones has loads of fan interaction from both the book readers and the HBO television series watchers, often those fans being one and the same. Now we’d like to present you with one fan’s theory, feel free to insert “crazy” or the adjective of your choice in there, about everyone’s favorite wine drinking and whoring Lannister, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). Prepare to have your Game of Thrones mind blown! (more…)
