    ‘Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made’

    Everybody has a favorite movie, but it takes a truly cultured mind to have a favorite movie that doesn’t exist. It might be the Wachowskis‘ Plastic Man movie. It might be George A. Romero’s Resident Evil. Or it might be the movie that serves as the subject of the new Taschen book release: Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never […]

    ‘Game Over, Man!': The ‘Workaholics’ in a ‘Die Hard’ Riff (Trailer)

    When in doubt, rip off Die Hard. It’s one of those classics that you can borrow from and everyone will recognize it as homage, like It’s a Wonderful Life or The Wizard of Oz, but with Bruce Willis saying “motherfucker.” The people behind Workaholics recognize this with their new project: Game Over, Man!, coming soon to Netflix.

    Now we have yet another reason life in Australia seems pretty chill. It’s the Starbucks Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino, the newest addition to the coffee chain’s famous Frappuccino line, incorporating, you guessed it, a blend of popcorn and pretzels.

    ‘Jurassic World Alive’ Augmented Reality Game (Video)

    I don’t know if we’re past the point of needing to describe every major augmented reality game based on a major media franchise as potentially being “the next Pokémon GO,” but the comparison seems pretty apt for a game that appears to be essentially Pokémon GO but with dinosaurs. It’s called Jurassic World Alive. Here’s the developer on what the […]

    Believe it or not, it’s been about ten months since I first told you about Sweet Heat candy, a line of spicy variations on popular candies Skittles and Starburst.

    “Welcome Home”: Spike Jonze Directs FKA Twigs for Apple HomePod (Video)

It’s called “Welcome Home.” I’m actually pretty annoyed at how cool “Welcome Home” is. It […]

    ‘Music from The Transformers': Soundtrack Available for First Time

    It’s safe to say that the 1980s Transformers toy line has been a resounding success. There’ve been TV shows, movies, and toys, toys, toys, but for one reason or another there’s never been a proper soundtrack release for the music from the original TV series. So it’s pretty cool that Hasbro has announced a new Music […]

    ‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Date Announcement Trailer (Video)

    It’s gotten to a point where upcoming Marvel programming is as reliable as monthly comic book deliveries, perhaps in some cases more so.
