Honest Video Game Trailer - Grand Theft Auto V. [video]

Grand Theft Auto has been a hit video game for years even though some of the things in the game are quite comical (and not on purpose). Let's take a look at Smosh Games' "Honest Trailer" for the wildly popular Grand Theft Auto V and watch them point out some of the things that you've been joking with your friends about and perhaps some things that you completely overlooked because you were just having too much fun beating up some poor pedestrian. 
"Take a trip into the virtual city of Los Santos, an almost perfect replica of Los Angeles. Play through the story as not one, not two, but three F**ked up criminals who enjoy life on the edge. But if violence is not your cup of tea (then seriously why'd you get this game?), you can always relax with a quiet game of tennis, a sailboat adventure on the seas, or yoga classes." Enjoy!

Realistic Mario - Brick Break! [video]

Video games recently have been becoming more and more realistic but what would it be like if our childhood games were as realistic as the ones today? Check out this funny video from The Pete Holmes Show that shows what it would have really been like if Mario and Luigi had tried to break brick blocks with their heads (or fists if you take a closer look at how they jump). See what happens in "Realistic Mario: Brick Block".

Batman: Strange Days - Bruce Timm's Batman 75th Anniversary animated short! [video]

In honor of Batman's 75th Anniversary, Bruce Timm, the co-creator of Batman: The Animated Series has created an amazing animated short titled Batman: Strange Days. The short is under 3 minutes long and simply incredible.
"A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman's past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious lair of Dr. Hugo Strange." Using Hugo Strange as the main villain just feels right for the mood of this short given that Strange was Batman's first real villain in the classic comics. It was also fun to see Solomon Grundy in this short. The 1940s film noir / horror atmosphere was also perfectly selected and gave the short a true feeling of greatness.

Watch Batman: Strange Days below and let me know what you think.

Find out where Karen Gillan's hair wound up when she shaved her head for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy!

Image
Fans of Karen Gillan, best known for her role as Amy Pond on the British sci-fi show Doctor Who, were stunned to see that she had completely shaved her head for her role as Nebula in Marvel's upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. The interesting thing is that her hair now has the potential to be seen in some pretty big films itself! (Yes, you read that correctly!) 

During an interview with Collider Gillan was asked if shaving her head was liberating or if any tears were shed. Check out her response.

"No, I was laughing hysterically.  It really hit me when I woke up the next morning.  That’s when I was like, “Oh, my god, where’s my hair?!”  But also, everyone kept me in good spirit.  Everyone was laughing and telling jokes.  Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are.  They treat you really well.  They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people.  It’s just so funny to think that my hair is made into a wig, next to…

Now 17 years later he is creating them again only this time they are no long film props. The glaives came out perfectly deadly and look amazing. Check them out in the video below!

Three new photos released for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy!

Image
Marvel has released three new photos from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy and they show off some great new moments. The first photo shows the Guardians together in prison seemingly after a prison fight. We see Rocket Raccoon holding an impressively large gun and for some reason Star Lord is holding a prosthetic leg. Makes you wonder how he got that and if he used it to beat up other inmates. The second photo is of Star Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) talking over the orb that we saw Star Lord unsuccessfully steal in the trailer. So now I am curious how he got it and just why it is so important that he would go back for it. The third photo that Marvel released is a set photo pf Chris Pratt in costume as Star Lord running across an alien landscape.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters on August 1, 2014.

First teaser trailer for Girl Meets World! [video]

Fans have been waiting for their first look at the new upcoming show Girl Meets World and the wait is finally over. However, if you were born in the 80s and grew up in the 90s you most likely have been waiting a lot longer than most. If you grew up in the 90s you probably grew up watching the original show Boy Meets World from 1993-2000. The show followed the young Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), his girlfriend Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel), and their best friend Shawn Hunter (Ryder Strong) as they grew up and got themselves in all sorts of crazy adventures. The show was able to combine comedy and real life lessons into a perfectly packaged show.

This new show, Girl Meets World, will air on the Disney Channel and will follow Corey and Topanga's daughter, Riley, as she grows up. Taking place 10 years after the events of Boy Meets World, this show will follow Riley as she faces her own life lessons through her family, friends, and school just like her parents did when they were y…

While being interviewed by Entertainment Weekly Donner spoke about X-Men spin-offs stating, "There was a regime [at the studio] that didn’t see the worth in [spin-offs], and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we’re going to do right by it. I’d like to do Gambit. I’d like to do Deadpool. We’ll see. There’s a lot of really great characters." Donner continued by talking about Lawrence's performance as Mystique.
“I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like…

Find out what punishments the Game of Thrones cast would give to those who spoil the show for others. [video]

A big problem today with television shows and movies are people who spoil future events for others. When it comes to Game of Thrones, there are plenty of people who have read the novels and therefore have inside information on what is going to happen in the show. Most of these fans who have read the novels respect fans of the show and do not spoil anything but there are of course those select few who choose to spoil things for their friends and strangers on the internet. Digital Spy caught up with the cast of the show and asked them what kinds of punishments should be done to those who say spoilers about the show and their answers may surprise you! I know I certainly wouldn't let some of them know if I spoiled something for a friend after watching their responses.

Steven Moffat teases answers to why the TARDIS doesn't like Clara on Doctor Who!

Any Doctor Who fan who is currently caught up on all the episodes will tell you that the Doctor's TARDIS has it out for Clara Oswald. For whatever reason the TARDIS just does not like her. But why? Executive Producer and Lead Writer Steven Moffat shares some information that teases possible answers. While responding to a reader submitted question to Doctor Who Magazine Moffat stated,
“As the Type 40 bad girl made clear in The Doctor’s Wife, she doesn’t like him bringing home strays. The TARDIS, as we know, likes to fire her pet Time Lord at interesting moments in history and watch the fireworks. Anyone less mad than the Doctor might have noticed by now the TARDIS navigation always works perfectly when the crisis demands, but never when he fancies lunch, or tea and biscuits at the Eye of Orion. “Now those pesky humans who keep following him home are usually content to stumble about, saying: “It’s bigger on the inside.” and remain sufficiently in awe of the Police Box magi…

Gives me courage, give me wisdom, gives me strength
For her I only hope I'll do the same

Now I won't ever be the same
Ever since I learned this princess's name
Now it seems there's just no other way
I'll win her heart by the dawn of the third day

When I'm high and dry
She's my song of storms
When I'm cold at night
Her Din's fire keeps me warm
I could feel her since the day that I was born

When I'm bloodied, battered, beaten
