    The First Ghostbusters Trailer Ain't Afraid of No Ghost

    Well, I'm for one am excited. Nothing stands out as exceptionally great, but I think others can agree that an idea of doing something very different than the original in a remake/sequel is at least worthy of some praise. Especially in recent years with almost every remake consistently the same...

    Deadpool - This is a Self-Aware Review Title

    Not gonna say much that hasn't been said by the review or you other chimichanga loving mf's other than this is a "perfect" film. In which I mean, there were tons of noticeable issues like plot and character development, and not every joke is funny (but I promise you'll find something that is...

    Thoughts on the new horror movie "Digging up the Marrow"

    So you might've heard of this new film by Adam Green and gotten really excited with the talk of practical creature effects and being based on the work of an artist named Alex Pardee, an artist known for his fantastical and disturbing paintings of monsters. Every inch of my horror fan self wanted...

    Gargoyles: The Disney/Marvel Team-Up That Needs to Happen

    Oh so many fond memories of this series like most other kids growing up in the nineties. Looking back at it, one of the most interesting things is how well they handled the dark and violent material. The nineties had a slew of overtly violent cartoons that I can't imagine ever being shown today...

    The Big Picture: Age of Heroes

    So I can't remember if this has been addressed, but does anyone have any speculation on how WB's attempt at a DC film-verse will work? Marvel did it right so all the series and movies, for the most part, fit into each other nicely. But since we've had movies and series with varying degrees of...

    Mis-used internet buzzwords : today's discussion brought to you by the word "whitewashing"

    For me this applies in the same way that rape jokes do. You can make a joke about ANYTHING, but the flip side is that your joke can fail, and a failed joke deserves it's scorn. Making a 9/11 joke on 9/12 is risky because there are a lot of obvious unpacked feelings that your joke has to deal...

    Mis-used internet buzzwords : today's discussion brought to you by the word "whitewashing"

    So to get things out of the way first before the pitchforks and knives are brought out, this isn't me going to discount everyone who complains of whitewashing or be one of those ignorant people who acts like racism doesn't exist anymore and we should just shut up and enjoy everything. No, sadly...

    The Big Picture: Broken Movies

    Hmm I don't know, Bob's proposal could be what Hollywood needs to make a great Seuss adaptation. The problem being before that they do add characters and themes that were not present in the original stories and take little time as possible to shallowly address the original's themes and...

    Escape to the Movies: Leprechaun: Origins - Fool's Gold

    Well no need for the eplanation at the end their Mr Bob, I figured it was a slow week after reading the title. My friend, I have to say in my honest opinion "The Doo" was given the Old Yeller treatment a long time back. My guesstimate is somewhere around the time they introduced Scrappy and...

    Assassin's Creed Unity Preview - Should Assassins be Working Together?

    I'm right along with everyone on getting bored with the formula because I was done with it after finishing the first game. I played but could never get into and finish the other games, though I love AC4 but that's mainly due to it being Sid Meier's Pirates 3d with a little AC thrown in. The main...

    Zero Punctuation: E.T. - "The Worst Game Ever"

    Gotta admit I personally like this drought since I'm able to play games I haven't played/finished before the next big IP comes along and gets me all excited before letting me down and making me feel ashamed of myself for thinking it would be different this time ( I have my eyes on you as well...

    Jimquisition: Corrupt, Censoring, Suicidal Indie Devs

    So watching and reading through the different sites that have been covering this unfortunate, but hilarious, fallout I've been wondering if cultural misunderstandings factor into some of these issues considering they are Russian devs. I've seen a couple of comments mention similar problems with...

    NASA Wants Your Ideas on How to Look for Life on Europa

    I believe this is good advice for the premeditated stage of development: Step one: have the involved team watch film Europa Report Step two: do nothing that the characters did in said film Addendum: perhaps consider asking yourself "is this an extremely stupid/asinine idea" each time...

    The Big Picture: Nothing Gold Can Stay - The Most Bizarre Episode of Transformers

    So wow, definitely bizarre but looking back at this show I can't really remember much that isn't due to inherit nature of the show's set-up. Also, am I the only one that thought something along the lines of this as the first scene of the hidden paradise was found? "Zippity doo-dah...

    Name something(s) you're concerned about with the games you're most excited for

    My biggest one, that seems to have been confirmed, is Evil Within that is supposed to be the comeback of "AAA" survival horror games is probably going to do all the wrong things that the "AAA" survival horror games do. I love horror games and when I saw the first gameplay trailer I rolled my...
