Doctor Who's Clara Oswald May Be Leaving the Show Very Soon

Aug
18

Doctor Who's current "companion" character is Clara Oswald, played by Jenna Coleman. She's become something of a fan favorite over the course of her run, and her presence also provides a nice bridge between Matt Smith's doctor and Peter Capaldi's. Sadly, and despite all of that, it sounds like she won't be sticking around much longer.

Aug
18

It's been one bumpy road, but Marvel's Ant-Man movie is finally beginning production today with Peyton Reed at the helm. It's a project that's been over 11 years in the making, and actually predates the first Iron Man by half a decade. So what the heck happened, and why did it take so long to get the cameras rolling?

Marvel's Doctor Strange Movie Won't be an Origin Story

Aug
18

Superhero movies and origin stories seem to go hand-in-hand, but after literally decades of watching them, the formula is starting to get a little played out. For every Iron Man out there, there's a Green Lantern; and even the Thor and Captain America movies were far surpassed by their eventual sequels. Luckily, it sounds like even Marvel is getting tired of the origin formula, and Doctor Strange might be the movie they choose to finally buck the trend.

One Fan Is Remaking Shenmue in HD All on His Own

Aug
18

No matter how badly fans want it, SEGA seems very uninterested in pursuing a remake of the cult classic Dreamcast game Shenmue. It's not hard to figure out why. After all, the game cost a ridiculous amount of money (estimates vary between $47 and $70 million, in 1999), and although it's developed a healthy fanbase, no amount of Dreamcast game sales in the world were going to make it a financial success for SEGA.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Expendables 3, and the Problem with PG-13

Aug
17

This weekend I found myself with a little bit of free time, and with the end of summer fast approaching, I decided to get in some last minute blockbusters, opting to go watch The Expendables 3 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Sadly, I didn't particuarly enjoy either of them, largely for similar reasons though.

Huh? Did WB Change the Title of Edge of Tomorrow?

Aug
17

Despite being a really solid and original sci-fi movie (with international film icon Tom Cruise starring to boot), Edge of Tomorrow failed to do much at the box office when it hit theaters in May. It seems that in a last ditch effort to recoup some of their investment, Warner Bros. has decided to quietly rename the movie ahead of its home video release. While that sounds like a pretty dumb idea, the new title is legitimately a heck of a lot better (and probably should've been the original, theatrical title in the first place).

Ten Reasons (Some Believe) Paul McCartney is Dead: Part I

Aug
17

It's a simple fact of life: everyone knows a Beatles fan. However, most people are not lucky enough to know someone who believes that the real Paul McCartney is actually dead. Luckily for you, you know me, and I believe all sorts of crazy shit. Like Bigfoot. He's real. And The Loch Ness Monster. He's really real. And aliens are real, and we never went to the moon and Abraham Lincoln killed JFK. Yep, I'm that guy.
