    Home vs Get Hard, how hiding black people equals success.

    in Entertainment

    This weekend had it's own ironic twist. 

    in the face of a UCLA study claiming that diverse casting actually sells movies more there were two movies opening with two very different advertising campaigns. 


    Get hard, a movie Staring Kevin Hart and Will Farrel maketed their movies showing both, in fact selling the movie solely on both actors star power. Home, a movie with a diverse cast sold it's movie primarly on a fat cat and a purple alien. 

    the result? Home brought in 54 million dollars domestically and and another 26 internationally where as Get hard opened to 34 million dollars. 


    which begs the question does diversity really sell? or are people just tired of Kevin Hart.

    Oscar Recap: How Patty Arquette won her last Oscar. Plus: Aquaman is a bum.

    in Entertainment

    It's Oscar Night!! I know many of you are upset that Kai and myself won no awards, nor were we nominated...but there were a lot of other people who won and much like Kanye West we have opinion we believe that are greater than anyone else's. 


    Politics are BIG deal when it comes to Oscars and one thing that seems to constant is that breaking decorum in any fashion almost always has backlash from Hollywood and the Academy itself. Tonight Patricia Arquette made a brilliant speach about wage equality and women's rights and it will be intersting to see how this impacts her career. 


    also we have more BATMAN v SUPERMAN news to discuss as Zach Synder tweeted an image of Jason Mamoa in full Aquaman costume, sparking a shit load of memes and harsh criticism, per usual.

    Artist Responsibility vs. Artistic Freedom. Plus Nintendo announcements!!

    in Entertainment

    Going all the way back to the Attacks on Charlie Hebdo and before people have been hooping and hollering about censorship and artistic freedom, and when in Rome, you scream at Romans until you're arrested for charges you need to be translated 

    so Kai and myself will be throwing our two cents in tbe bucket regarding this concept as it has recently become an issue (big surprise) in the comic book world. A variant cover showing a batgirl being victimized by the Joker, which brough fresh to readers mind's " The Killing Joke" arc in which batgirl was brutally attacked and left for dead. 


    we'll discuss this and some pretty cool videogame news about Nintendo, and some intrgrigue @ Konami.

    2 years later: Was Microsoft right? plus: Wonder Woman gets fully clothed!!

    in Entertainment

    in 2012 Microsoft unveiled, rather clumisly their plans for their next gen console. Discless, Online all the time, Media Hub. Then the gaming world took a shit all over them. 


    Since then Sony has been thrust into the #1 spot in the hearts and minds of games for doing nothing more than being the opposite of what Microsoft wanted to be. So, Sony won right? 


    The battle may've been won but Microsoft may've been ahead of the curve. With video games sales proving not to be bullet proof and more hardcore gamers going for PCs and Mobile options the question has to be asked: Are gaming consoles fading away? 


    Plus the internet loses its shit over Wonder Woman covering up her boobs and legs for the first time i bajillion years.... take a quick guess on which topic we'll spend the most time talking about!

    The Valiance of Valiant Ent.: Super Hero Movie Orgy in the near future.

    in Entertainment

    This weekend Valiant Comics, publisher of comics like Manowar, Shadowman and Bloodshot, annouced a 9 figure deal with Chinese Film company DMG to bring their properties to Big and Small screen in both America and Asia.


    What does thaat mean? it means this is no longer a coke and pepsi game and the Superhero genre may get even more crowded if this deal sets a precedence for other Comic Book publishers in the independant realm. 


    we'll discuss this and talk about Super Girl's costume...because...well...what else is there really?

    Power Rangers: Mighty Morphin' Ban Hammer Plus: Michelle Rodriguez. foot. mouth.

    in Entertainment

    This week we were blessed with a short fan film about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from the production company that brought us " Dirty Laundry" and " Truth in Journalism"  


    unlike the aforementioned shorts POWER/RANGERS was met with with both praise and heavy critcism from both fans and Saban Ent. the guys who own the rights to Power Rangers here in the states. The director of the short  Joseph Kahn, was almost immediately assailed by Saban's legal team demanding that the short be taken down...and for a while it was. 


    we'll give y'all the whole story, plus: 


    Michelle Rodriguez, famous for playing the token tough girl in countless movies (and very well I might add) came under fire for saying minorites need to stop stealing white superheroes and make their own. Then she went on to apologize and elaborate on her comment only to reaffirm what she was apologizing for in the first place. 


    we'll parse it out, insult will likely be hurled.
