In honor of Pokemon Day let's take a moment to have a good laugh about our beloved franchise. Pokemon is an absolute blast to play but there is no denying that the formula hasn't changed in the last 20 years. Smosh Games has created a new "Honest Trailer" for Pokemon Black and White that is sure to make fans of the franchise laugh.
"From the developer that had exactly one idea about twenty years ago, comes the fifth iteration of the exact same game you bought over and over, and over, and over again – Pokemon Black & White!" Also, bless Smosh Games for giving all 156 new Pokemon in these games hilariously great names in the "Starring" section of this video. Wow. Simply wonderful. Enjoy!

Happy 20th Anniversary, Pokemon!

Image
Happy Pokemon Day! Happy 20th Anniversary, Pokemon!
Today is the 20th Anniversary of the original Japanese release of Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green, two games that would soon launch a world wide phenomenon. (Pokemon Blue was soon released later that year by Game Freak, the Pokemon game's developers, that became the basis for the English translations of the games which are now known as Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue. (Now available in the Nintendo 3DS eShop!) I originally came in on Generation 2, so last night at midnight I downloaded Pokemon Red and have been having a blast playing it today!


No matter what year you started playing or what Generation was your first, I hope you are playing Pokemon to celebrate today and joining millions of trainers all over the world to honor a game that has brought smiles to all of us. Happy Pokemon Day!

Ghostbusters fan favorite character, Slimer, will appear in the new Ghostbusters film!

Image
As the release date for the new Ghostbusters film approaching more news keeps coming out about the film. A new interview with actor Michael K. Williams (Boardwalk Empire) confirms the addition of another fan favorite character; Slimer!

Williams will be playing a FBI agent in the film who works for the Mayor. The reveal came when Williams stated,
""I'm not going to lie, working with Melissa (McCarthy), and Kristen (Wiig), and Kate (McKinnon), was really dope. But I got to work with Slimer, dude. Like Slimer!!! I'm in a scene with Slimer! I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan and it was a dream come true."" I have to admit that I am excited to see Slimer back on the big screen for a new generation of fans. I'm also curious if they'll change his look at all for this film. Are you excited to see Slimer return?

Ghostbusters will be in theaters on July 16, 2016.

The Princess Bride - What’s the difference between the book and the film?

Image
The film The Princess Bride is held by many fans to be one of the all time great adventure films. It has everything; action, sword fighting, love, memorable characters and quotes, and so much more. As you should know know from the film, this film was based on a book.

Since this is an adaptation, the ultimate question is how do the film and the boom stack up to each other? What are the differences between the two? This incredible video from CineFix answers just that and you'd be surprised by the answer.
"The Princess Bride is a book within a book that was adapted into a book within a movie that garnered most of its success on home video. Now it’s time for us to read between the lines to find the differences between the book and the film.   The Princess Bride is a romantic comedy about lost love, revenge, torture, kidnapping, desire, and much more.

Marvel and Netflix cast Game of Thrones actor Finn Jones as Iron Fist.

Image
It appears as though Marvel and Netflix have finally cast their lead in the upcoming Iron Fist show! Actor Finn Jones, who is best known as Loras Tyrell in the hit HBO show Game of Thrones, has been chosen to play Daniel Rand, aka Iron Fist.

I think Finn looks great for the role and that he is nail it. At the moment there is a lot of mixed feelings towards the casting with many fans wondering why another white actor has been cast in a lead role. The simple truth of the matter is that Daniel Rand is white. There is nothing to argue this time around as in the comics the character is white. The fact that he knows martial arts should not mean that an Asian actor should have been cast, like many wanted.


Show synopsis:

"In the comics, Iron Fist is Daniel Rand, who at age of 9 travels with his family from New York to a lost mystical city called K’un-L’un. After some tragic twists of fate, Rand is adopted by the city’s ruler and taught advanced martial arts and the mystical power of the…

Image
WOW! Netflix has just released an all new trailer for season 2 of Daredevil and I am blown away! Completely filled with new footage that gives fans a great look at the main story for the season, this trailer will make you wish it was March 18th today! You get a really deep look at Elodie Yung as Elektra, The Hand, tons of fight scenes, and the strained relationship between Matt and Foggy. Don't fret though, there are some scenes in there of the Punisher doing his thing as well. I cannot wait!

Season synopsis:
"Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.  Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as …

New Supergirl promo pics show Laura Vandervoort as Indigo fighting Supergirl.

Image
Wow! Take a look at these new promotional photos from CBS' Supergirl! They come from next week's episode titled "Solitude" and feature Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) fighting the new villain Indigo (Laura Vandervoort). Fans may recognize Laura Vandervoort, or at least the name, as the actress who played Supergirl on the hit show Smallville. I think it is great that they were able to include Vandervoort in this new show. I loved her on Smallville. I can't wait to see how she does on this new show.
If you missed it yesterday, check out the promotional images of Supergirl in Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

Actor Norman Reedus appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and debuted a new hilarious (fake) clip from his show The Walking Dead.
"Lately the people behind “The Walking Dead” have been bringing more modern elements into the show. When actor Norman Reedus stopped by our show, he provided us with an exclusive clip from an upcoming episode that’s a very good example of that." Enjoy!

Supergirl visits Superman's Fortress of Solitude in new promo pics for the next Supergirl episode.

Image
Wow! Take a look at these new promotional photos released by CBS that show off Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) in Superman's Fortress of Solitude in the next Supergirl episode!

The next episode is appropriately titled "Solitude" and has Supergirl going to the Fortress to find clues on how to defeat the new villain Indigo (Laura Vandervoort). Fans will remember that Vandervoort played Supergirl in the hit CW show Smallville. The funny thing is if I am not mistaken, I believe this Fortress of Solitude set is the same one used on Smallville, or at least modeled after it. That is brilliant! This is going to be one great episode!





Supergirl "Solitude" will air on February 29, 2016.

A promo photo, seen above, gives us a great look at Elektra and the new look that she'll have in the show while a promo video, seen below, shows off her hand to hand combat skills on a rooftop in Hell's Kitchen.

The Dating Games - A funny parody trailer of The Hunger Games.

Image
The Hunger Games franchise may be about a sadistic game that pits children against each other in a battle till the death and a country that rises up against it's evil government, but a large sub plot revolves around a love triangle. Who will Katniss truly be with; Peeta or Gale?

See set photos from the set of Supergirl for the Supergirl / The Flash crossover episode.

Image
The photos that fans have been eagerly awaiting are finally here. Thanks to ComingSoon.net we have our first batch of set photos from the Supergirl set where we see Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and The Flash (Grant Gustin) together.

This amazing crossover episode is titled "World's Finest" and will be airing on March 28, 2016. At the moment there is no confirmation of any other characters from The Flash coming over for the episode. From these photos we can see that the characters Livewire and Silver Banshee will be included.

If you have been watching The Flash and know that Barry, aka Flash, jumped to Earth 2 and saw an image of Supergirl in the wormhole between universes you can assume that Supergirl may live on another Earth, maybe Earth 3 or Earth 4. This is going to be a really exciting episode and I cannot wait!

Synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "spin-off" Marvel's Most Wanted is revealed.

Image
Fans have known about the Marvel spinoff Marvel's Most Wanted for some time now but we still didn't know what the show was about. We know that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. characters Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird, (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) would be at the center of the story but that was it. Now, Deadline has given us a full synopsis of the show and what fans can expect.

The Sound of a Galaxy: Inside the Star Wars: The Force Awakens soundtrack with John Williams.

Image
When it comes to composing a film score, John Williams is arguably the best out there. (The best in my own opinion.) He truly knows how to bring a film to life with his music and when it comes to the Star Wars franchisel this couldn't be more true.

This incredible video takes you behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and shows you John Williams himself discussing how he created the music for the film and how he approaches creating themes for both new and old characters.

Find out Deadpool's deleted scenes, jokes, and characters.

Image
For as much that was allowed in Tim Miller's Deadpool, there was still a lot that was left on the cutting room floor. Mr. Sunday Movies has put together a great video that compiles all the deleted scenes, jokes, and even characters that were taken out of the film to make way for others.

Here's what Mr. Sunday Movies had to say about the video,
"The amount of people who have given Deadpool a watch has proven that there is massive success to be had in an R rated comic book franchise. But like all movies there are a number of Deadpool scenes left that ended up being deleted including extended joke sequences that will probably end up on a gag reel, crippling insults and things deemed too violent even for this movie.  The Deadpool movie also went through a number of drafts that had the inclusion of an alternate set of villainous henchmen, the major action sequences being shaved right down, a PG-13 cut that nobody probably wants to watch and a list of unexpected names on the D…

Art set delivers samurai inspired designs for Star Wars: The Force Awakens characters.

Image
Fan art can deliver us some of the most beautiful interpretations of our favorite characters and this art set is no exception. This art set is inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens and puts a classic Japanese samurai spin on them. This set was created by artist Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey and is extremely well done. I have to say that I like the idea of turning BB-8 into an akita. It makes sense. Which of these designs is your favorite?
