    ‘Tomb Raider’ Upcoming Big Screen Reboot (Trailer)

    A little over 15 years ago, some brilliant movie producer realized that those popular adventure games for the PlayStation that rip off the Indiana Jones movies might make pretty good movies themselves. Then, the first Tomb Raider film was born, and Angelina Jolie became in many viewers’ minds the definitive Lara Croft.  Buckle up, though, because there’s […]

    ‘LANDLINE.': Vans’ First-Ever Snowboarding Film (Video)

    This is the year that not one, but two movies called LANDLINE. came out, albeit only one with that specific formatting (neither, tragically, is a Larry Cohen-penned followup to Phone Booth, Cellular, and Messages Deleted). The one we’re concerned with here is not the 90s-set comedy/drama starring Jenny Slate, but instead the first-ever snowboarding film […]

    ‘Red Sparrow': Jennifer Lawrence Spy Thriller Gets Trailer (Video)

    Jennifer Lawrence became one of the biggest movie stars on Earth playing a character linked to a specific bird. Now, it’s happening again, with next year’s Red Sparrow, which despite the name seems to be a somewhat more mature piece of entertainment than anything in The Hunger Games franchise. Red Sparrow refers to a Russian […]

    Aruliden Paddle Case: Intimidate Ping Pong Opponents in Style

    Imagine you’re at your local ping pong parlor, scoping out your next opponent.

    Nerf Bow Trick Shots from DudePerfect (Video)

    Trick shooting is a more or less integral part of the sport of archery, but you really don’t hear much about the top level of Nerf archery – even within the Nerf field, the bow and arrow tends to be overshadowed by the brand’s proud line of dart guns. The YouTube channel DudePerfect has come […]

    Onnit ‘Star Wars’ Fitness Equipment (Video)

    One thing I’ve noticed watching the Star Wars movies, you never hear anybody say anything about going to the gym. You never see any Imperial gyms on board any of the Empire’s giant spacecraft, and you never see any gyms in the background on Tatooine or Hoth. The closest thing to a gym I can […]

    Starcade (not to be confused with WCW Starrcade) is enshrined in television history as the first game show ever to incorporate video games into its structure, paving the way for such future game shows as – well, Nick Arcade is the most important one, so let’s just leave it at that. Now, for some reason, […]
