The long honored tradition of debating one thing vs another is always fun, right? Pepsi vs Coke, Marvel vs DC, tacos vs pizza; and the true fun is in the fact that the conversation is eternal, there are no finite true winners (editors note: Coke, DC Comics and tacos.)
Keeping that in mind, well… if you are the betting type, maybe hold off on making an costly wagers in the 600 Jedi vs 60,000 medieval foot soldiers fight because thanks to YouTuber SergiuHellDragoonHQ and a PC game called Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator we have the definitive winner in that match-up.

While there are some that come close – and Logan sure as hell is one of them – no movie is perfect and there will always be something for the internet’s creative types to make fun of. One of the latest cheeky tributes to nerd culture’s most popular releases is the newest video from How It Should Have Ended, which today took on the brutal and heart-wrenching R-rated masterpiece that was Logan. The video touches on the few points in the film that could’ve been improved to make for a more seamless and sensible plot and then goes on to a wonderfully bizarre musical finish. (more…)
If there is one thing that Screen Junkies has made quite clear over the years, it is that no one is safe from ridicule, that any and every movie must be criticised to prove its worth. No matter how great it might be to the untrained eye, the Honest Trailers series will expose every flaw in all the most popular releases. In their most recent video, they’ve taken on be the baddest of the bad. The most dangerous villains in the entire DC universe have come under the critical eye of one of YouTube’s most scathing pop culture critics. (more…)
Majestic, powerful, mysterious… The legacy of Doctor Strange is one that has remained unmarred for generations. A truly unique hero, his abilities are a mystery to even the most intelligent and well traveled of the Avengers. No matter how brilliantly intelligent or well versed in alien skills, there are some things they just can’t handle alone. As if he needed to be any more magnificent, the newest movie stars Benedict Cumberbath as the Doctor himself – a positively regal man who has stepped perfectly into the role of neurosurgeon turned legendary mystic artist.

In a move that has excited all the Pokémon fans who have following the franchise since it was first released, The Official Pokémon Channel on YouTube has released a new series of shorts in the style of the much loved Pokémon Origins. Released regularly between now and the end of year, the episodes of Pokémon Generations will be in three- to five-minute installments and will focus on the key events from the Pokémon game series. While it doesn’t quite replace the anime, which is still primarily targeted at ten-year-olds despite all the adults that remain loyal to it, it’s a step in the right direction for all the ageing nerds who still dream of being Pokémon Trainers.

It would be generous to describe Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as less than a riotous success. Drawing on a mishmash of ideas from multiple storylines belonging to many, many incarnations of the titular superheroes, a cast of Hollywood greats was not enough to save the convoluted plot from severe criticism. Despite being the fourth highest grossing film of 2016 at the time of its release, the small margin by which it profited compared to the expense spent on it resulted in it being described as “a disappointment” – and that’s not even starting on what the fans or critics had to say.

“Kung Fury,” the Kickstarter-backed, 80s throwback, action/comedy, which became a hit sensation, is ready for Round 2. The half hour short film, a creation made in the basement of director David Sandberg, incorporated several green screen shots (along with some mad editing skills) to create an exciting and enjoyable flick destined to be a cult classic. Sandberg took to social media in announcing the film’s one year anniversary of its release on his ‘Laser Unicorns‘ Instagram page.
In his post, the short film’s writer not only celebrates the movie’s anniversary, but takes the opportunity to reveal that a sequel is in the works. The accompanying picture shows the finished script of the as-of-yet untitled follow-up to the throwback action-comedy romp tightly wrapped with the hero of the film’s recognizable red bandana.

The reboot of Ghostbusters featuring an all-female cast has been a point of contention ever since Sony Pictures announced plans to bring the hit 1984 film into the 21st century. Many fans of the original 80’s Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Rick Moranis, question as to why attempt to reboot a film that was beautifully and cleverly created by Ivan Reitman. Others are chiming in by comparing the 80’s version with this latest. There are even a small group of misogynistic individuals attacking the movie for making the four lead characters women. Regardless where it comes from, the fact is director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, arriving in theaters on July 15th, is not getting the press it would like prior to its release. Enter Sony domestic marketing President Dwight Caines. (more…)
If you’re not familiar with YouTube user Mr. Sunday, it’s time for you to set a couple of hours aside and check out his amazing work. The guy has a YouTube channel (and a pretty sweet accent, too), and all he does is two things: 1) win (of course), and 2) root out all the hidden references and subtle “in-jokes” in movies. He’s recently given us a lovely overview of all the easter eggs you’ll find in Ant-Man (making my planned article about the exact same thing largely irrelevant, but I ain’t hatin’), and it’s pretty darn thorough. Give it a watch for yourself below, and then let me know in the comments: is there anything he missed that you caught?
