The Final Countdown: September Movies, Bad Sequel Ideas and New “New” 3DS

Published by under Final Countdown

rigby

Go here to see September movies that may not suck.

“September is rough. After the summer movie season’s ended but before the awards contenders start to come out, it’s one of the months where studios tend to dump movies they don’t know what to do with like so many steaming piles of cinematic shit. (Also: January. GTFO, January.) The bounty is over, and now you’re stuck with Dolphin Tale 2.”

Cosplay of the Day: A Fearsome Lady Zangief

Published by under Cosplay,Video Games

zangief

There’s a first time for everything in cosplay, and yes, this is definitely the first time I’ve ever seen Zangief crossplayed by a woman. I was not expecting the chest hair to carry over, but I’m very glad it did.

The cosplayer is Kayla Rose, the photographer is Micktography. Kayla certainly has the crazed look down, as you’ll see in the other pictures below, and has all the powerslamming abilities of the male variant. Though I will admit her positioning with Cammy looks a bit compromising. Check out the other photos below: Continue Reading »

Prepare to Be Disillusioned by the Game of Thrones S4 VFX Reel

Published by under Television,Videos

We all know that Game of Thrones isn’t REALLY filming in Westeros (I just found this out), but you may not realize the massive amount of VFX work that goes into the show that you never even notice. Obviously some things like dragons are fake (also just learned this), but half the backdrops of every scene you see are greenscreen. Fortunately the tech has evolved to the point where you can’t even tell.

You can see what I’m talking about in the VFX reel from season four above, and I will just assume that something, somewhere in there is a spoiler, so beware.

Damnit Kirk! You Ruin Everything

Published by under Images,Television

Why yes this is Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, and Michael Dorn all together in one picture. And that’s also William Shatner totally crashing the party with a confused look on his face. “Where’s Nimoy” “Where’s Takei?” “How did I get here?”

Anyway, this was taken recently at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con where…oh man I live in Chicago now! How did I miss this! Actually wait, I’m in this photo. I’m the bald guy on his phone in the back. Yep, definitely me.

Remembering Robin Williams Through Good Morning Vietnam

Published by under Editorials,Movies

by Brian Hadsell

Robin Williams’ death took the whole world by surprise.  That affable clown and sometimes father-figure of our youth was now dead.  No, not just dead – hanged.  It’s as if his finals words were a silent curse: “But Doctor, I am Pagliacci!”

The immediate sting of Williams’ loss has begun to fade in the nearly three weeks since his death, and we can begin to look back on the prodigious body of work that he left us with a measure of objective clarity.  It is with this goal in mind that I watched 1987’s Good Morning Vietnam, produced at the cusp of his stardom, in which he plays irreverent D.J. Adrian Cronauer, assigned to a military radio station in 1965 Saigon.  As Cronauer clashes with his superiors over everything from the military’s suppression of news-worthy information to his crass brand of comedy, he befriends a young Vietnamese student named Tuan and romantically pursues the boy’s sister Trinh.

A New Kind of Professional

Published by under Images,Movies

professional

Another unlikely mash-up takes the form of The Professional meeting Guardians of the Galaxy, where Rocket takes the leading role, supervising baby Groot. The art is from Mike S. Miller, in case you missed all the watermarks, and lets rocket get even cooler with colored sunglasses.

I kind of like how baby Groot is like the biggest non-spoiler spoiler of the year. If you’ve seen the film, you understand why that is, but if you haven’t, you really have no idea why baby Groot would be a spoiler at all. Do they have a stick child together??? Keep guessing. Also, go see the damn movie already.

The Morning Link: Jokes You Missed If You Only Speak English

But seeing as that might technically count as juvenile cultural insensitivity, most bilingual filmmakers compromise and season their work with fewer overseas curse words and more actually funny foreign-language jokes.”

Until then, to get your Westeros fix, here’s where you can find your favorite cast members (I tried to include only projects out this year or early next, which is why you won’t see, for instance, Pixels).”

Must-Own: Amazing Breaking Bad Cartoon Figurines

Published by under Images,Television

Bad1

Alright, I thought these were amazing when I believed them to be animations only, but it turns out these are actual, physical figurines made by Trevor and Troy Grove. 

Here is a preview of an ongoing personal project I’ve been collaborating on with my brother, Troy, since last year’s final season of “Breaking Bad”. The idea was to create a series of miniature (approximately 5″-6″ tall) stylized figures based on many of the characters from the show. These are the in-progress wax sculptures, along with some photoshop color composites we’ve done to better visualize the final outcome.”

Personal project??? No! Sell these and make tons of money! What’s a copyright? I don’t care. Please make them! Anyway, if this gets spread around enough, maybe AMC will see how awesome they are and make up some deal with them to get these out of the internet and onto people’s desks. Like mine. Check out all the rest below, including the entire supporting cast, pretty much. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: The Amazing Miles Morales

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

s4

For those of you not following the comic book Spider-Man universe these days, Peter Parker has been subbed out and Miles Morales has tagged in as Spider-Man. The black-hispanic teen is part of Marvel’s ongoing effort to ensure their entire line-up of superheroes doesn’t remain an endless string of white guys. The character was supposed to be inspired by a hybrid of Barack Obama and Donald Glover, hence why everyone’s always begging Glover to get the role in a Marvel movie that doesn’t exist yet.

Anyway, Morales will likely make it to the big screen someday, but before he does, that’s why we have cosplay. Another young man was constantly told he looked like Morales, and so Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey decided that he should probably get a costume to match. Once he’s donned it, the effect is uncanny (errr, that’s X-Men), and you can see more evidence of that in the gallery below: Continue Reading »
