Watching Red Band Society from the Perspective of Someone Who's Been There

Sep
22

To begin, I was born with a heart disease known as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. In 2010, I was told by my cardiologist that I needed a new heart because my enlarged one was hardening. In the summer of 2012, I was admitted to the hospital for three months. A month after leaving the hospital (October 28), I got my heart transplant. Because of all of this, I may skewed view on various medical shows, but especially with The Red Band Society.

Channel Surfer: Dollhouse, A House Full of Pretty Girls

Oh, Joss Whedon, will you ever win? Wait…I guess directing the a billion dollar movie about characters you loved as a kid could be considered winning. From that point of view, I really don’t feel bad that Dollhouse was yet another failed Whedon TV project.

I'd Call the New [AS] Show 'Mr. Pickles' Disgusting, But... Then It'd Win...

Sep

Adult Swim is premiering two new shows this week: one is Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories, and the other is Mr. Pickles. Astoundingly, Tim and Eric have been outdone in terms of evoking disgust and revulsion, and that isn't necessarily a good thing for the new cartoon about a dog that is actually Satan, unbeknownst to his beloved boy companion Tommy.

Imgur User Makes Astoundingly Detailed Analysis of 'Interstellar's Hard Sci-Fi

Sep
19

Welp, if all copies of Interstellar were inexplicably lost, this Imgur user's analysis could reconstruct the film--or at least Endurance, the spacecraft from upcoming sci-fi blockbuster. The album is an eye-buggingly detailed explication of the hard-science principles used in the spacecraft's engineering. Simply put, I can't believe this was cobbled together from JUST TRAILERS, it's like an owner's manual, or a featurette out of an astroengineering textbook . . .

Paranormal Activity lost me as a fan three Paranormal Activities ago, but the latest one's recently revealed title has me interested again.

Aubrey Plaza Will Be Grumpy Cat in an Upcoming Live-Action Movie

Sep
18

Whether Grumpy Cat needs a movie at all is still open to debate, but at the very least, they managed to cast the perfect voice for the role. According to a new report, Aubrey Plaza is set to play the irritable feline in an upcoming Lifetime movie (yeah, that Lifetime) called Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.

This guy is officially the biggest Doctor Who fan in the world (or at least the one with the most stuff). Manchester, UK's Ian O'Brien has been certified by the Guinness' Book of World Records for owning the single largest collection of Doctor Who merchandise anywhere.

We still have a ways to go until Avengers 2 hits theaters, but at least now we know what the movie is about. Disney has released the official plot synopsis for the upcoming sequel, read on for potentially spoilery details.

Did Marvel Secretly Introduce the Punisher in Captain America: The Winter Soldier?

Sep

Did Marvel just stealth-drop the Punisher into the Cinematic Universe? According to Joe and Anthony Russo, the introduction of a new character was set up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and their description of the mysterious newcomer sounds very familiar.

Pooh-pocalypse Now, An Unexpected Mash Up From 1987

Sep
13

Much like crude forms of sampling existed before purpose built sampling technology, mash ups existed before non-linear editing equipment and digitized media made it easy. Just as tape trading thrived before Bandcamp, bootleg VHS tapes made the rounds of the country, doorstep to doorstep and hand to hand before YouTube. Though often these tapes were violent, pornographic or just plain bizarre, plenty were pet projects, experiments and forgotten cult classics that refused to die. So it is with this nearly thirty year old mash up of Disney's Winnie the Pooh and Apocalypse Now.

Channel Surfer: The Top 5 Longest Running Primetime US TV Shows (Right Now)

Sep
13

Hey Folks! This week, I felt like looking up the longest running scripted television shows in American as of today. This means that any show currently on air right now counts, excluding news programs and reality TV (because who cares, right?). To simplify things, I’m also only counting shows airing during Prime Time (7pm-11pm), which means no Sesame Street, Power Rangers, or Saturday Night Live.

Sep
12

Oh my god, Rocket's head, I'm dying. The above image is from an ongoing anime series in Japan called Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers and while it's not particularly good by most accounts, it will have the distinction of being the next show to featured the Guardians in animated form.

TNT Working on a Live-Action Teen Titans TV Series

Sep
11

The Teen Titans have a long history of comic book appearances, but if you're anything like me, you know them best from the 2003 TV series. That, or the recently revived incarnation of the show, which despite its comedy focus, is actually not bad. Now it seems the Titans might finally be making their way to live-action, with a pilot in the works at TNT.
