Back from the savage wastelands of the catocalypse Batman (Jeremy) and Tanner (Underoos) must journey to protect the sacred crystal skull of knowledge… So… They meet a new Indiana Jones? And a Janitor.. that, um… something about movies.
Look, it is a podcast and this week the guys run through the great hashtag fights of the 2016. Captain America: Civil War, Batman v Superman: Orphan Fight Club, and then round out the hour by (finally) endorsing a new Indiana Jones and fixing the plot problems of Terminator franchise and a couple other things.

The Star Wars Expanded Universe has been a thorn in many a nerd’s side for years now. Ever since Disney pretty much uprooted the existing franchise, kicking off a brand-new series with The Force Awakens, many diehard fans have been wondering whether we’ll ever get another chance to look deeper into the cosmology and setting of the long-ago galaxy, far far away. Thankfully, the Rogue One initiative seems to be taking the first step to expanding to new mediums, after announcing their releases coming this Fall…
Star Wars cosplay at cons is so ubiquitous it could, and should, be it’s own category. So we created one. Toronto ComiCon this past weekend was no exception for the inclusion of that parade of Star Wars costume love for both regular fans and the ever growing and swelling ranks of the local chapter of the 501st Legion, a staple of any Toronto area con. Of course this was the first Toronto con after the release of The Force Awakens, and the usual march of Stormtroopers, Jedi and Sith Lords was joined by many Kylo Rens, Reys, and even a few BB-8s. (Yes, you can cosplay BB-8. See below.) (more…)
While Harrison Ford may have stumbled into the role of Han Solo, the casting of the young Solo in the Star Wars spin-off film will not be left to luck. From a pool of actors that sources tell THR originally numbered over 2,500, Disney recently made the cut from ten down to three. Two notable names that didn’t pass the screen or costume test portion were Miles Teller (Fantastic Four, Whiplash) and Ansel Elgort (Divergent franchise). (more…)
Filming for Rian Johnson‘s still untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently underway on set in Dubrovnik, Croatia. TMZ recently snagged some on set pictures featuring some new aliens and vehicles which might get you wondering where and what is going on for Rey and the rest of the Rebel Alliance gang. Spoiler warning if you don’t want to know what these aliens look like, don’t click-through. The rest of you, enjoy! (more…)
When we last left Lara Croft on the big screen, she was played by Angelina Jolie and under the direction of Jan de Bont. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your opinion of those films), Angelina Jolie refused to return for a third Tomb Raider film, and we haven’t seen Ms. Croft in theaters since. In recent years, the success of 2013’s Tomb Raider video game and the announcement of a new film adaptation of the series has inspired several fan casting articles online. Fans everywhere have been wondering the same thing: who will be the next woman to don the braided ponytail? Today, that question may finally be answered.
When it comes to the Star Wars Prequels, most fans of the franchise would rather forget that the missteps ever existed in the first place. Unfortunately, until science catches up with science fiction, the ability to completely erase Episodes I-III from your mind isn’t possible. Still, it wasn’t ALL bad. One of the few aspects that the films (well, at least The Phantom Menace) got completely right was the awesomely badass Sith Lord, Darth Maul. The only real issue with the scary-as-hell assassin is the amount of screen time that he received or, more to the point, the screen time he did NOT receive. Well, thanks to a new fan made film, fans of the dark character can now revel in over 17 minutes of Maul-ness. (more…)
Star Wars made space opera big and its millions of fans made sure it stayed that way for decades now. With the overwhelming success of The Force Awakens and with Episode VIII well on its way into shooting, you can now quell those hype-pangs by attending the next big scifi themed amusement park, appropriately named Star Wars Land! If the promotional video is to be any indication, this one is going to be one hack of a ride.
With perhaps one of the most expansive mythologies of all time, Star Wars has been more than deserving of the theme park treatment. So with last year’s announcement of a Star Wars Land coming to Disneyland and Disney World, it’s pretty much needless to say that Star Wars fans are already prepared to throw even more money at the Mouse House. The park isn’t likely to open for a few years, but the hype behind it isn’t likely to die off any time soon. Among the attractions confirmed are a Milenium Falcon attraction, a Battle Escape attraction, and a few shops and restaurants for good measure. This sounds amazing enough, but in the words of every generic infomercial host: “that’s not all!”
Wise beast-man of the star-ways, best co-pilot a galactic smuggler could have, professional wailer, for decades, Peter Mayhew has been the man behind the iconic hairy alien sidekick of Star Wars. Recently reprising his legendary role in The Force Awakens. Mayhew’s recent Twitter teases, however, have caused quite a stir, as he began to upload screen shots of his own original Star Wars script, simply titled Journal Of The Whills. What’s more interesting however, is the unedited original bit of text which reads… (more…)
