Fox is Making a Minority Report Sequel TV Series

Sep
09

If you didn't get enough precrime action in Steven Spielberg's Minority Report, you're in luck, because apparently Fox wants more too. They've acquired the rights to a small-screen adaptation of the film that will take place a decade after Tom Cruise's Washington D.C. shenanigans.

Sep
09

Guardians of the Galaxy has already dominated the US box office, and in just a few days, it will be making its way overseas to Japan. A few of the TV spots promoting the film in that country have made their way online, and they are fantastic. How fantastic? Well one of them is entirely focused on Rocket Raccoon, and it uses footage of actual raccoons. Thank you Japan.

The Worst Album Art of All Time: Volume IX (NSFW, Very Offensive Material Ahead)

Sep
08

Time to continue our search for the filthiest, the orneriest, the most tasteless and disgusting album covers ever produced by musician-kind. We've seen all sorts of messed up stuff from bearded ladies and saw crotches to over-filled toilets to - GASP - a Nicki Minaj! What's in store for this installment? Grab your eye washin' juice and let's find out! Keep in mind that this post contains potentially offensive images that should not be viewed by anyone under the age of 18. Really.

Forget A Million Ways To Die In The West, Here's 104 Ways To Die In Hyrule

Sep
08

The Legend of Zelda games, despite looking and feeling like they are designed for children, have rarely focused on being easy or simple. Occasionally puzzles require that bizarre type of logic that prevails in adventure games or enemies require esoteric attack combos to kill. This means that Link often faces a fiendish number of ways to die, and a slightly morbid YouTube fan, MasterofHyrule, has put 104 of them together in this brutal super cut.

Imagining The Life Of A Transporter Chief In Comic Form

Sep
08

I don't know about you, but I remember Chief O'Brien as a bigger part of TNG than he actually is. He isn't even the consistent man behind the transporter controls. I really enjoy Colm Meany. I think he's a good actor who brings a certain edge to essentially agreeable characters like Miles. It makes his occasional moral stands both more forceful and fraught. In any case, I remembered a good number of episodes that featured him, and expected there to be a ton more. Even in the episodes he is in, for quite a few he's just standing behind the controls as some ambassador beams on. He really doesn't get his time in the spotlight until DS9 rolls around. I guess Jon Adams also noticed that he wasn't featured all that often and decided to fill in the gaps.

No More Iron Man? RDJ Says Marvel Isn't Developing a Fourth Film

Sep
08

Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark more or less birthed the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the trilogy of Iron Man films are some of the most successful movies ever made. Despite all that though (and the fact that the character will be showing up in Avengers: Age of Ultron), it sounds like Marvel has very little interest in pursuing another Iron Man movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Check Out 5 Pieces of Xandar Concept Art

Sep
08

Guardians of the Galaxy had no shortage of scenic vistas, but none were featured quite as prominently as Xandar, the home planet of the Nova Corp. Given that fact, it's no surprise that the planet went through a heft amount of visual development before the cameras (and visual effects artists) started rolling.

Dancing Groot Is Way More Horrifying in Grand Theft Auto

Sep
08

What happens when you put Guardians of the Galaxy's Groot in Grand Theft Auto IV. Well, if you're modder indirivacua, something way less magical (and way more mind-scarring) than what I was imagining.

Russian Documentary Confuses Team Fortress 2 with WWI Propaganda

Sep
08

Last week, a documentary about World War I was released in Russia, and a segment focusing on Allied propaganda featured a unintentional cameo by Team Fortress 2's Soldier (eating a baby no less). I'm not sure if this reflects really poor fact-checking on the filmmakers' parts, or a really low opinion of the United States in Russia. Probably both.

Wikipedia Is An Ecosystem Full Of Bots And It's SpongeBob SquarePants' Fault

Sep
07

Wikipedia is the largest repository of human knowledge ever accumulated. It has branches in dozens of languages. It is both the savior and the bane of every college student. All of the answers are there, but your professor won’t let you use them because Wikipedia is a den of scum and villainy. It’s curated by non-experts and vandals with no integrity, right? Nope. It’s a giant library that’s mostly (okay, maybe not mostly) run by robots!
