Funny Buffy the Vampire Slayer compilation shows how often Giles got knocked down. [video]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer was and is a masterpiece show from Joss Whedon. Although there was obviously a lot of fighting on the show, one character seemed to get beat up quite often that wasn't supposed to. Actor Anthony Stewart Head's character Giles was Buffy's "Watcher", or trainer, in the show and although he was supposed to be training her in the background he still managed to get in the thick of it and get beat up a lot.

Check out this funny video that shows off all the times that Giles gets hit or beat up in the show with a very clever song choice throughout. Enjoy!

How To Act Like a Witch / Wizard! Lessons from Harry Potter's Warwick Davis! [video]

If you have ever wanted to act like a real witch or wizard then this is the class for you! This wonderful video from Comic Relief features actor Warwick Davis from the Harry Potter franchise teaching "How To Act Like A Witch / Wizard". There is even a segment with Paul Harris teaching wizard combat. Harris is the man responsible for creating the "physical language known as wand combat".

This video was created to have a little fun but most importantly to bring awareness that children around the world have limited to no access to a school education. If you'd like to donate to Comic Relief you can do so here.

The iconic Star Wars throne room scene becomes quite awkward and funny without John Williams' score! [video]

Music can transform a scene in a film and this video proves it. YouTubers The Auralnauts have taken the iconic Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope throne room scene and taken out John Williams' score. In replace of it they added some awkward coughs and the appropriate footsteps and applause. They even added their own Wookie scream. The result is quite hilarious. This 2 minute scene of silence gets so awkward with the cast staring at each other that you wonder when it's going to end. This is definitely a must watch for all Star Wars and Sci-Fi fans.



Original scene with John Williams' score:

Augmented Thrill Ride Project - Pioneering Oculus Rift VR rides on real roller coasters! [video]

Now this is pretty cool. Take a look at this Oculus Rift project that combines the innovative gaming tech with high speed roller coasters. Users strap in to a real roller coaster while wearing the Oculus Rift and the images they are shown correlate with the movements of the roller coaster to give the user a brand new experience.
"In February 2014, I approached the german roller coaster manufacturer Mack Rides with the idea of extending a real roller coaster by wearing an Oculus Rift headset during the ride. I was wondering if it would be possible to replace the real environment by a synchronized virtual ride.  At Mack Rides, they also saw the potential and entered this ground-breaking cooperation project with me and my students, providing us two roller coasters for research and testing (I'm working as a professor at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern).  Then, on April 7th, we performed our first Oculus Rift VR-ride on a real roller coaster, synchronized to the …

Teen Titans and Supergirl could be getting their own live action television shows soon!

Image
It seems that DC may be trying to take over television with all their new series. Shows like Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Constantine and iZombie are either already airing or set to air in the coming months. It seems that two more shows are looking to join their ranks!

The first show will be titled Titans and will be based off the hero team the Teen Titans! It's being reported that Dick Grayson/Nightwing will be the lead of the show and that he'll be joined by team members Raven and Starfire.


Akiva Goldsman (Batman and Robin) and Marc Haimes (Men in Black II, The Legend of Zorro) will serve as co-executive producers and will co-write the pilot episode for the show.

Secondly, it was recently announced that DC's Supergirl has her own show in development. It is currently being developed by Greg Berlanti (The Flash) and Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and is in the very early stages of development. Berlanti and Adler are currently looking around for a home for the show.

Mexican Harry Potter fan smashes Guinness World Record for most Harry Potter memorabilia!

Image
Until now the previous record for the most Harry Potter memorabilia was set at 807 items. This summer however, that record has been smashed by a Harry Potter super fan from Mexico.

Menahem Asher Silva Vargas of Mexico is now the new Guinness World Record holder for Harry Potter memorabilia. At 37 years old, Vargas has broken the record with 3,092 items! This also does not count the "373 magazine clippings, full magazines, advertising posters, autographs and newspaper clippings he owns that are not considered collector's items for record purposes." That is really impressive!
"I love the story of Harry Potter," Menahem said. "It is my inspiration, my lifestyle. I really love the magic and I want to be known in all world as the biggest fan of 'the boy who lived'." What might be more impressive is that Vargas only started his collection of Harry Potter memorabilia in 2001, four years after the release of the first book and the same year as the re…

Zack Snyder releases the first official photo of Batman v Superman's Batmobile!

Thanks to the leaks yesterday Zack Snyder has released an official photograph of the Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This is obviously a much better photo than those that leaked. The Batmobile looks really cool, I just wish it didn't still have a "tank" look. However, the more I see of the Batmobile though the more I like it. I also wish this official image was a little more angled so that we could see the profile of the Batmobile. I think once I see it in action that I may really like it. I can't wait for this film. What do you think of this new Batmobile?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will fly into theaters on March 25, 2016.


Here’s a real picture of the #Batmobile. http://t.co/47beaZqr6fpic.twitter.com/Ez1ILa8JeE

Civilization IV theme "Baba Yetu" sung by Peter Hollens & Malukah. [video]

Wow! Sit back and take a look at this amazingly beautiful interpretation of the Civilization IV theme song "Baba Yetu". I'm simply blown away. The song is performed by Peter Hollens and Malukah and this video definitely deserves to be spread to every corner of the internet. I have always enjoyed this song very much and listening to this rendition of it reminded me of it's greatness. Originally composed by Christopher Tin this song won a well deserved Grammy in 2011.

Enjoy.



"Swahili Lyrics:
Baba yetu, Yetu uliye
Mbinguni yetu, Yetu amina!
Baba yetu Yetu uliye
M jina lako e litukuzwe.

Utupe leo chakula chetu
Tunachohitaji utusamehe
Makosa yetu, hey!
Kama nasi tunavyowasamehe
Waliotukosea usitutie
Katika majaribu, lakini
Utuokoe, na yule, muovu e milele!

Ufalme wako ufike utakalo
Lifanyike duniani kama mbinguni. Amina."

Agent Carter and the Howling Commandos return in the season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!

Image
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting ready to return and this season they are starting out with some very special guest appearances. During the premiere episode three stars of the film Captain America: The First Avenger will be making a return during a 1940's flashback. Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell), Jim Morita (Kenneth Choi) and Dum Dum Dugan (Neal McDonough) are all set to return. You'll recognize the two males as a part of the Howling Commandos. These characters are said to return for a flashback that will shine a light on the origin of S.H.I.E.L.D..
""Coulson is a big student of history and wants to return to those old ideals of Agent Carter's time," says executive producer Jed Whedon. "He's, like, 'Let's be the S.H.I.E.L.D. we were meant to be!' He wants to do the job right this time."" Are you excited for the return on Peggy Carter, and soon her own show Agent Carter, and the Howling Commandos?

Set photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reveal the new Batmobile!

Fans are being treated to some sneak peeks at Batman's new Batmobile for the upcoming Zack Snyder film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now that filming is in full swing fans were able to take a few great shots of the new Batmobile from the set and you can see that it has a sort of hybrid look. Looking almost like the Batmobile from the video game Batman: Arkham Knight this Batmobile offers a sort of hybrid look between the Tumbler we saw in the Dark Knight trilogy and the more classic Batmobiles. I personally did not like the Tumbler at all so I am glad that that is gone. I'm not crazy excited that this new Batmobile still has a tank-esque look but I'll hold my thoughts until we see it in action. Take a look at the all new Batmobile below!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will fly into theaters on March 25, 2016.

Now all he has to do is convince Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Ken Marino, and the rest of the cast to come along for the ride. PLAY IT AGAIN, DICK is created and executive produced by Rob Thomas (VERONICA MARS and iZOMBIE)."Play It Again, Dick will premiere on September 16, 2014 on CW Seed.
