Here’s one that’ll get you right in the feels, as the kids say nowadays:
After being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in January, 4-year old Jack Robinson of the small village of Denmeade, Hampshire in England–through the generosity of his community and several celebrities–completed a “Bucket List” that concluded with an unique Star Wars funeral.

Brace yourselves, Jones fans, for the original Raiders of the Lost Ark will be hitting the big screen once more, though this time the screen in going to be really big. That’s right, Raiders will be coming back briefly via some huge-ass mutha-fkn IMAX!

For me, it’s always been the bigger the screen, the better. It’s the only marked contrast we have to the generations that are seeing our movies on phones and hand-held platforms. It’s a complete relief to be able to see a film that many people have just experienced on a palm-sized platform technology, suddenly hurled at that them on an Imax-sized screen.
And, thankfully, nothing has been screwed with. No guns being digitally edited out and replaced by candy-canes or walkie-talkies or whatever. So we get to see it in all its original glory, as God himself intended.
The IMAX release will only be running from September 7th to the 13th, so make sure to plan ahead if you want to see it. Where is it playing, you ask? We have no idea yet. Official theater lists will no doubt be announced soon, at which point we’ll let you all know.

Welcome to Ask the Bastards, a new weekly feature in which you, the readers, get to ask us, the staff of Nerd Bastards, all the questions you want on our favorite nerdy topics of interest. Why? Well, because we’re nerds, and we love to give lengthy explanations to things. We’ll be here every week sounding off on comics, TV, film, video games, toys, cosplay and everything in between. This week we’re kicking things off by tackling questions on hated comic book characters, Batgirl and Batwoman, Final Fantasy 7, the future of DC Comics on Film and just how Nerd Bastards was born.
Dorkly’s got an awesome new rap posted, called “Wish I Had A Portal Gun”. It’s actually pretty fuckin’ amazing. The prime uses of a Portal Gun are to basically teleport places, to impress chicks, to escape from family and losers, and to jack yourself off — or, better yet, to go down on yourself. Pretty fuckin’ handy, huh? Sounds like a good deal to me!
