Pixels is the classic Hollywood tale of something interesting and new shoved through the Hollywood meat-grinder, mangled and twisted into something horrifyingly repulsive. Seriously, the only thing the Adam Sandler Pixels movie is good for is helping you get a nap in on a lazy Sunday afternoon. An afternoon so lazy you can’t bring yourself to exert the energy to reach for the remote to change the channel as you drift off into sleep. I found myself nodding off just watching this Honest Trailers look at the disaster that is Pixels. (more…)
It’s no secret that Adam Sandler‘s movies tend to fall into one of two piles for people- absolutely love, or absolutely hate. With the ups (Grown Ups 2), downs (That’s My Boy), and in-betweens (Pixels and Blended) of the actor’s recent releases, it was anyone’s guess how The Ridiculous 6 would fare when it was released- available only through Netflix. The streaming service is proud to announce, however, that less than a month after adding the Western comedy to its selection of films, The Ridiculous 6 has already earned the title of the most watched movie on Netflix. Ever! (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.
Hello prospective listener, thank you for your interest in the RadioBastard Podcast. Do you like weeks that give bigoted comic book fans a case of the sads, talkin bout tacos, ninjas that do karate, long term planning for your movie ticket purchases, Caroline in the City jokes and 8-bit video game warriors? Swell, because we’re talking all about those things and more on RadioBastard!
Also, do you like details? You’re in luck! Here’s something close to that… sort of! On the show this week, Jeremy and Jason discuss: (more…)
It all started with a fantastic short Pixels back in 2010 by film maker Patrick Jean. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, we’ve embedded that short for you below. From there it quickly moved into development over at Columbia pictures and Happy Madison Productions. That’s right Adam Sandler and company are bringing this Pixel short concept to the big screen. (more…)
Video games and movies are being taken to the next level with the upcoming flick, Pixels. The movie is set to take video game characters and bring them into the real world to cause all sorts of chaos, with only a group of gamers able to save the day. And whether you like the idea or not, it looks like they’ve picked up a new star, one that people might want to see – Peter Dinklage. (more…)
While the cream of Hollywood celebrated the best that cinema has to offer during the 2014 Academy Awards, across town the worst of the year’s cinema was being heckled and dis-honored with the announcement of the Razzies. (more…)
Every year the Razzies takes a hard look at the worst of the Hollywood worst when it comes to what’s hit the big screen. You can have your Oscars, your Emmys, your Golden Globes, but I’ll take a huge helping of what the Razzies is dishing out. (more…)
This time on The BastardCast, Jason and Jeremy board the Botany Bay and find Matt Jackson, naked, alone, and full of evil intent. Together, they crash the serene quiet of the cosmos with a ghetto blaster, a crappy but lovable star cruiser, and a mission to punch at the heart of this week’s nerdy news with acid wits and embarrassing bitch tits.
WHAT WE TALKIN BOUT BRUCE WILLIS? We talkin bout nananana Batman! Is Wonder Woman going to crash DC’s upcoming spandex sausage fest and will anyone care about a Batman-less Jim Gordon/Gotham City TV show? We’re also talking about the upcoming Constantine TV show, and whether DC is building it’s own wide universe on the small screen.
More Batman? But of course, we’ve got EXCLUSIVE and surprising audio from casting sessions all throughout Batman’s long on-screen history. Eion Bailey ain’t got shit on the Godfather in spandex!
Alright, maybe you’re an acolyte of Marvel. Part of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. For you, we have our views on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and later, we discuss Avengers 2: Age of Ultron in TRAILERGASM (and also Need for Speed, bitch!)
We also realize that the name Michael Jordan is somewhat common, that Alan Moore is not a clown (sorry, Grant), why Dumb and Dumber makes us sad now, the Firefly comic, our Halloween plans, and what the world’s worst rap battle looks like.All that and MOAR (We’re contractually obligated to spell more like that. Please help.)
The BastardCast: The gentleman you see in the image above is our God, worship him with mutton in your mouth and a Pegasus in your soul.
This week on The BastardCast, Jason and Jeremy are visited by internet Land Baron Matthew Jackson and a case of the sillies. What will they discuss? All of it.
Oh, you have a thirst for detail and a hunger for madness? Aren’t you the lucky bumble bee, cause this week, the boys and guest boy #1 discuss the persuasive charms of fried chicken, Vin Diesel‘s illuminating Facebook page, NERF‘s war against zombies and the children who have an appetite for squishy genocide, and the limited brilliance of Sharknado (needs more Nado and more Home Alone references!).
Also on the show: Bryan Singer tweets the back of maybe Michael Fassbender‘s head (and other parts), a porn company wants to work with Paula Deen (but not her pie), we ask Matt if robots knock-a-da-boots in PAC Rim, a couple of people take issue with the way Captain Kirk fancies cats.
Do you require more sustenance?! Suck on this, Pinky Tuscadero: we’ve got a full throated discussion on the critical roundhouse throat kick being delivered to Grown Ups 2, wonder about whether the possible X-Force movie could bring about Deadpool’s cinematic rebirth while also making Rob Liefeld‘s nipples hard, and a celebration of the brave cheetah who almost took out Adam Sandler on the Serengeti.
All that and the band, Coco Phunk and the Methhead Conquistadores (w/ special guest Slow Motion Jeez Rocket)
The BastardCast: They will find us with no pants and all of the chicken wing bones.
