Gandalf Europop Nod

Posted September 25, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

While the movies conveniently left anything chronicling this aspect on the cutting room floor, it seems that anyone traveling with Gandalf were subjected to hours upon hours of him nodding to "his beats."

Sure, they didn't have mp3 players or even turntables in Middle Earth, but he was a freaking wizard. Magic was his mp3 player and the world was the floor on which he danced...badly.

Tonight On AOTS:

Ben Schwartz continues his AOTS guest-hosting duties with Candace Bailey, welcoming actor Michael C. Hall into the studio to talk veteran hit show Dexter and checking out the latest in indie games.

The Wolverine: First Official Photo

Upcoming X-Men prequel-sequel, The Wolverine has released its first official photo. (Yesterday. m(._.)m )

We now get a look at the titular claw-snikting, wound-healing mutant who, for the fifth time, will be played by Hugh Jackman.

Judging from the pic, Wolverine will certainly be "big in Japan" as he is buffer and veinier than ever, ready to tackle ninjas, samurai, and heartbreak in this adaptation of the iconic 1982 Wolverine comic book miniseries by Frank Miller.

The Wolverine goes into berserker rage at theaters on July 26, 2013.

"For God's sake, let me get those glasses off your face, already!

You look like some kind of euro-hipster who listens to bad techno music and collects out-of-print Foucault books.

Now, give me some affection, dammit! -- More! Affection me more!"

Suspicious Bag Looks Suspicious

Suspicious Bag Looks Suspicious

Oh, please! This girl's just having fun at the expense of the terrorism-conscious.

It probably just contains a book, some makeup, sunglasses, and a few sealed letters addressed to her congressman filled with anthrax.

Find Me In The 90's

Baxter
Posted September 20, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

The folks of FakeLife have dropped a gigantic 90's nostalgia bomb with a blast radius too large to determine.

Sure, for some, the 90's was an odd time of borrowed styles, filled with screechy cookie-cutter post-Nirvana alternative acts, old-school style hip-hop about big butts, and 16-bit video game systems stretched to their absolute graphical limits.

However, for those who were younger during that period, it was a more magical time of Pokemon and Nickelodeon-infused color where songs about being a Barbie Girl in a Barbie World, would play in the background amidst split-screen GoldenEye deathmatches and Mario Kart races. 

Indeed, it was a world where Michael Bay asteroid movies made you cry and the most sexually-scandalous book out there was not Fifty Shades of Grey, but The Starr Report.

Nostalgia away!

The Hobbit Releases Second Trailer

The first entry into what is now a trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has released its second trailer.

Nearly a year after its debut trailer satiated fans who have waited a long time for J.R.R. Tolkien's first Middle Earth novel to hit the big screen, this second one goes a bit deeper into obstacles that await Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and the baker's dozen band of dwarves.

Besides giving us more scenes with the hideous goblins our heroes will encounter under the Misty Mountains, we also get our first real glimpse of ex-Doctor Who, Sylvester McCoy as eccentric, nature-loving wizard, Radagast the Brown.

Check out the trailer below or risk getting taken by giant trolls who argue how they should cook you.

Voldemort's Masterpiece Horcrux?

It looks like "He Who Must Not Be Named" has done that which shall not be mentioned, embedding himself into a timeless masterpiece.

Now known as "Volda-Lisa," he's biding his time to find a way out of this predicament and get his revenge on Harry Potter after making him go out like a punk in Deathly Hallows Part II.

Wonder Woman Returning To TV...Again

It appears that DC's iconic Amazon will be making another attempt to lasso a spot on the small screen.

According to a report from Vulture, Wonder Woman will indeed be back on television, this time developed as a drama on The CW network chronicling the character's origin which will be titled, Amazon.

Just a little over a year after the pilot for the last attempted Wonder Woman TV series starring Adrianne Palicki would be scrapped by NBC, it seems that Diana of Themyscira will be featured in a prequel series similar in context to Smallville depicting her formative, pre-stars-and-striped bikini days.
