Last week, an incredibly silly video made the rounds showing off what it would look like if movies ended the second one of the characters said the title of the movie. Having amassed over one million views, creator Chris Huebs decided to create a sequel this week, and against all odds, it might actually be funnier than the original. More →
The Division is a lot of things. First and foremost, it’s a competent, if unimaginative, third-person shooter. It’s an RPG as well, with plenty of loot to collect and experience to gain and skills to choose from. It also shares a great deal in common with the modern MMO, in that you’re never more than a few button presses away from teaming up with other players online.
This kitchen sink approach has doomed other equally ambitious games, but The Division manages to stay afloat, even underneath the weight of all the adjectives that describe it.
You might think Derek Zoolander and Hansel are just stupid male models who don’t pay attention to world events and politics. But it turns out they’re pretty well informed. They know there’s a presidential election coming up and they can totally explain the fashion behind it. Furthermore, they’re very much aware that Donald Trump came in second place at the Iowa “couscous,” and they recently joined the Internet in mocking him.
I know that there are plenty of people out there who love Superman. I have never been one of them, however.
When it comes to superhero stories, there’s something so much more compelling about the tortured soul of Bruce Wayne, who must rely on his intelligence and guile to save the day. Superman, on the other hand, is just way, way too powerful and his “mild-mannered” alter ego of Clark Kent has just never really done anything for me.
In The Atlantic, writer Asher Elbein argues that Superman is still a great character and he can be redeemed if used the right way. I remain skeptical of this argument but it’s very interesting nonetheless. More →
We’re just over a month out from the next season of Daredevil, but the wait has been excruciating for fans of the blind superhero.
After all, Marvel diehards binged all thirteen episodes of Jessica Jones three months ago, and the next Marvel movie doesn’t hit theaters until May, so you can understand why even the shortest teaser would have fans excited. More →
Somehow, despite the fact that the Internet has spent the past month and a half deconstructing each and every moment from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there are still things we’ve missed.
Earlier this week, Nerdist sat down with Skywalker Sound sound editors Matthew Wood and David Acord to discuss the film, and ended up uncovering a few interesting tidbits along the way. More →
For years, Flower has been the game that I’ve shown friends and family when I want to prove to them that gaming isn’t all about shooting aliens and screaming at strangers over the Internet. Flower is beautiful, tranquil and meaningful, but after all these years, I think a new game has finally taken its place.
Earlier today, Vulture released an expertly crafted mashup that takes the plot of Netflix’s Making a Murderer and applies it to the universe of The Simpsons. The brilliant mashup centers on Homer, cast in the role of Steven Avery, being sentenced to prison for crime he didn’t commit (murdering Mr. Burns), only to be released and then re-arrested for murdering someone else just two years later.
It’s been a long wait, zombie movie fans, but The Walking Dead is returning to AMC in just a few short days. We’ve seen a bunch of trailers and official teasers posted online so far, but that’s simply not enough for fans. That’s why you’ll be thrilled to hear that the first four minutes of the show has just leaked. While it’s not great quality video, it’ll definitely give you a taste of what’s coming.
On Sunday night, two teams clashed on the biggest stage in professional football and left it all out on the field in their quest to become the champions of Super Bowl 50. It was an epic meeting for the record books as Broncos quarterback Payton Manning sought to put the ultimate cherry on top of an illustrious career. Meanwhile Carolina QB Cam Newton looked to cap off one of the most impressive seasons of the past decade by continuing the momentum his Panthers had been building throughout the playoffs.
At least, that’s probably what happened. We’re not sure because we were too busy watching all the Super Bowl commercials. More →
Not everybody watches the Super Bowl solely for the action on the football field. Some do it for the commercials, others love the half-time show, and movie fans are likely keen to see what trailers will air during the game. And Super Bowl 50 certainly delivered when it comes to new trailers, offering us sneak peaks at some of the most exciting movies hitting theaters this year.
I’m not typically a fan of TV spinoffs, but Better Call Saul has seemingly broken the spinoff curse that plagues shows looking to capitalize off of the success of previous hits. To be sure, following up Breaking Bad would be a daunting task for any show, but Better Call Saul works precisely because it’s not trying to perfectly mirror all the elements that made Vince Gilligan’s meth-fueled drama so addictive and compelling. Rather, Better Call Saul seeks to carve out its own unique and independent nook within the larger Breaking Bad universe, and it does so quite successfully.
