ABOVE: Just to prove a point about how many characters have made their way through Futurama, here’s a piece of work that shows every damn character that’s had a part in the series.  The question is, are you hardcore enough to name an episode that each one of them appeared in? – By Deviant Art user Unrellius

ABOVE: I know what you’re thinking, hey, that’s Christian Bale in American Psycho. WRONG! This is dude who must have made some sorta deal with the devil and looks uncannily like Bale. Who then dresses like Bale’s characters to fuck with people. Hey, wouldn’t you? [Reddit via Fashionably Geek]

It was just another flight for Wynard Mullins until his fellow Qantas passengers got a little antsy over his Princess Bride t-shirt. You’ve probably seen one, or if you’re like me, have one hanging in the closet.

 “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

It’s got to be high in the top 20 list of the most widely spoken nerdy movie quotes. I can’t remember the last D&D gaming session where it wasn’t shouted out at least once.

Unfortunately, some of Mullins fellow passengers on the New Zealand-bound flight didn’t see the humor in Mullins’ T-shirt and simply focused on the “prepare to die” part of the quote.

Mullins now says his T-shirt, may not have been the best clothing choice for a flight (Post 9/11), but he believes the reaction of Qantas was over the top. While other passengers took their seats, Mr Mullins was approached by a flight attendant who said some people on board were intimidated by the words on his shirt and asked him:

“Are you able to remove it because some of the passengers are quite intimidated by it.”

Mr Mullins said he didn’t have another shirt and the flight attendant left in search of another T-shirt, but never returned, and according to Mullins, didn’t make eye contact with him again.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they had someone watching me the whole time, the whole experience was a bit over the top, but also a bit comical.”

Qantas was asked for a comment, but the airline’s spokesman said they had no record of the incident, and it appeared the incident had been handled by the crew on board.

“Qantas does have dress standards for passengers traveling on our aircraft . . . particularly for slogans which other passengers may find offensive or threatening.”

You can pick up a shirt with the slogan with a simple Google search, there are a number of styles and graphic sizes to choose from. Maybe Mullins should have flown Air New Zealand instead of Qantas, ANZ is used to unusual characters on their aircraft and appear nerd friendly as seen in the video below.

This time on The Bastardcast, Jeremy and Jason talk about the Hulk Hogan sex tape, a time traveling attorney, topless dungeon masters, variant cover pollution, the worst DC hero of all time, and much, much more.

After HEADLINES, Jason talks to Halo: Forward Onto Dawn director Stewart Hendler about casting Master Chief, how much creative freedom he had, and the process of adapting the world of Halo for the screen.

Are you not entertained?!?! Too bad, because at the end there is another round of VERSUS where Jason lobbies for the TARDIS as a superior time machine to the DeLorean, which Jeremy meekly advocates… and now you know which one of us writes these little descriptions. #TeamTardis

It is the 25th anniversary of the beloved fantasy classic, The Princess Bride and the cast and crew all celebrated by attending a screening at the New York Film Festival.  They chatted a bit about what impact the movie had on them, related some stories from the shooting of the film and expressed their adoration of the devoted audience that still loves the film 25 years after its modestly successful release.

So what about making a sequel to the film?  Some might say that would be a wonderful idea while others… well, we might be skeptical, to say the least.

Author William Goldman had a few things to say about the possibility of another story in the Princess Bride world.  He says he would love to continue the tale, but doesn’t have the slightest idea how he would do it.  Or, to put it in his own words:

I’m desperate to make it and write it and I don’t know how. I would love to make it, more than anything else I’ve not written.

Of course, the guy is 81 years old, so there’s not much time if he does decide to try to pen more.  And good luck finding cast members for a sequel, since all the old ones are properly old now and Andre the Giant (may the Viking gods bless his soul) is no longer with us.

Personally, I’d be happy to dodge the sequel bullet on this one.  Everything that needed to be said was said in the first.  It had a beginning, a middle and a wonderful end and to add on to it for no other reason than franchising the title would be blasphemy.

What do the folks at home think?  Would you watch a Princess Bride sequel?  Is it even possible to make one, or would that just destroy the point of the original?

 

Thanks to /film for the good luvin.

The Princess Bride Reunion? Inconceivable!

No, they are not getting back together to make “Princess Bride 2: Electric Boogalo”, damn it. They, that is most of the cast from the classic movie, got together to record a puff piece on Good Morning America for the talk show’s “Totally Awesome ’80s Week.”

Wait, come back. It’s the “Princess Bride”, damn it. I know its lame network morning programming centred around the banner of  “Totally Awesome ’80s Week” (having typed that twice, I feel the urge to drive a salad fork into my fore arm.) You are going to want to watch this, even if it just to see how old they are! It’s also all warm and fuzzy because as they remember making the movie, you remember watching it. Again and again and again.

24 years later, the cast of Rob Reiner’s modern-day classic get together to talk about a movie that is near to the nerd heart. Obviously Peter Falk (RIP) and André the Giant (RIP) could only attend in spirit. Fred Savage was also not in attendance, I assume he couldn’t get the time off from Arby’s. Hey, those Bacon Cheddar Melts don’t make themselves.

Watch the video after the jump, and then watch the whole movie for the 24th time on your own time (you know you want to.)
