Those wacky Predators are like the Scooby-Doo Gang of the universe – they seem to cross-over with just about anybody and anybody famous. Over the course of their time in our pop-culture crosshairs, they’ve ran into the Aliens, Batman, Witchblade, Judge Dredd, Superman & the JLA, the Terminator, and even very recently, Archie and his crew from Riverdale. There’s a ton more encounters that are encompassed in fan fiction, too; one particularly well-done version has recently hit online and is making the pop-culture world take notice. (more…)
Nerd Art Dump: How Popeye Should Look, Baby Aliens Vs. Predators, Peter Parker for Playboy and MOAR!
Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!
Now that Sony is finally working on a CG animated Popeye film we’re left to speculate just what Popeye is going to look like, hopefully it’s like this. Created by Lee Romao, this version of Popeye is the furthest thing away from Robin Williams live action film of the early 80s’ and well suited for what Sony should be going with now. Hey Sony, if your reading this, hire the man. [Geek Tyrant]
Hit the Jump for Catwoman, a Doctor Who/Disney Mash-up and MOAR!
That Spider-Man Musical in New York has been a whipping-post for negativity and snark remarks. Rightly so, it’s stupid and it sucks (scathing reviews, countless accidents, re-writes and creative changes galore prove it). It needs to DIE! Or, they should just let the boys from size fourteen entertainment take a crack at it. At-least they know what their doing.
On the heels of their Conan, Terminator 2, Total Recall and Commando masterpieces, the Kaplan boys are going out with their final Schwarzenegger Musical. With the toe-tapping, Predator-trapping ditty “If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It.”
I have been humming this all day. IF IT BLEEDS WE CAN KILL IT! This needs to happen. On Broadway. NOW.
There is so much good Arnie material left! It’s a shame this is going to the last vid in the Schwarzenegger cycle.
What’s up Bastards! After having some damn problems we are back and so is DVD Tuesday! Since Tuesday has just passed on, I decided to do a “lite” version and pretty much recommend what came out last week and this week as well.
In other words, I’m only going to list the stuff that you should at least check out. You can expect a full return of DVD Tuesday next week but for now, check after the jump to see what came out and see if there is something you want! (more…)
Have ya ever wondered if any of the Predators have family raising issues like the normal human beings they hunt? Probably not, unless you were under some sort of influence (if that’s the case, tell where you got your stuff). The fine folks over at CollegeHumor has made a video where you don’t need to wonder anymore. Indeed, the Predators themselves at times have to deal with their teenage kids and realizing that they may not be the son that they want. Check the video out as it’s funny and may be touching to some of you and hey, there’s a “surprise” appearance at the end.
Nimrod Antal‘s ‘Predators’ was the best movie reboot/sequel…EVER! It was a tight, edge of your seat nail biter, with colorful well written characters, and guns blazingballs to the wall action. It was everything we wanted it to be and more. Aw man, we fucking loved it! If you liked it as much as us then you will be pleased to know that a sequel is in the works. At-least that’s what producer of ‘Predators’ Robert Rodriguez is telling us. In an interview with IGN at Comic-Con he had this to say,
The studio said, ‘Let’s do some other ones. What other story ideas do you have? Because it was like, let’s test out the market with this one. They really wanted it to be pretty contained, pretty scaled-back. They didn’t want to put too many of the ideas into it that we could save for a second one.
So we could see what the appetite was, because the bigger movie would actually be what comes following that. That kind of sets up a new storyline, new location and world, and then you can really go crazy from there.
Rodriguez does have “an idea” of where he will go with the next film. He wants to hire different writers to come up with different versions of his take, and choose the best draft. When asked if he would direct the sequel, as Nimrod Antal is apparently out of the picture (busy with another project) he said, “I think I have too many people wanting me to do Sin City 2 first!”
Personally I don’t give a “Sheeeeeeeit” (god I miss The Wire) about Sin City 2. Well, actually that’s not true. I do. Would love to see it, but it’s been in limbo for so long I’ve pretty moved on. Kinda got tired of waiting. I just want MOAR Predators PLZ!

Predators finally gives justice to the original where the last two AVP films and even Predator 2 have failed. Not only is it a much more direct sequel to the first but, it is also a fully enjoyable reboot
of(in this humble reviewers opinion) the most bad ass monster that has ever been or ever will be! This movie is a tight, edge of your seat nail biter, with colorful well written characters, and guns blazingballs to the wall action. From the moment the characters fall from the sky onto this planet until the sequel enticing conclusion, you are going to see everything you ever wanted and more in a Predator movie. Period!
A batch of new photos from the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed Predators have popped up online. These aren’t lame cast and sets pics. No. We are talking, full on, spoiler-riffic shots of the Predators, an un-expectedly buff Adrien Brody, some dude with a Katana (sweet) and much much more.
Awesome, but whatever happened to building tension and revealing the monster in the final act? I realize we all know what the Predator(s) look like, but there’s absolutely no question after all of these images.
click after the jump for a butt load of new images.
Another great addition in the long line of How It Should Have Ended. (HISHE) It always seemed to me in the original Predator that, seriously? All they needed to do was throw aside their weapons and Predator quite possibly may have left them alone. Where’s the fun in killing prey without getting shot back at?
I don’t know. Ask a fucken deer drinking by a lake when a hunter blasts it in the head!!
Friends, rendering software and a $500, Alex Popov has done what few people do well. He has made an incredibly decent fan video of Predators for short change and done a damn fine job. Running at 22 minutes and having some sketchy CGI, you’ll actually be blown away by what this dude got away with his limited funds. (Via ToplessRobot)
