I Threw It On The Ground
Seth Rollins is back! He didn’t bring his bleached hair, but I can forgive that at the moment. Right now i’m just too excited for “The Architect” of The Shield to be back in a WWE ring. What’s more is, he seems to be fightin’ ready. No, he didn’t put on a full match, but for a guy that obliterated his knee, hitting Reigns with a Pedigree 30 seconds into his return is a good sign. Furthermore, he came onto Monday Night Raw and had the difficult task of turning the warm welcome he was sure to receive into sheer hatred. And man did he pull off the greatest trick the devil ever played. Continue reading Wrasslin’ State of Mined: Seth Rollins Returns to Reclaim Title (05/23/2016)
A Reboot Crafted by the Original
News has hit the interwebz that Blumhouse and John Carpenter are partnering to give the Halloween franchise yet another shot. Early rumors had it slated as a TV series, but John Carpenter himself has announced that this will, in fact, be another film release for Miramax. And yes, Michael Myers will once again be The Shape that terrified audiences back in 1978. Continue reading John Carpenter Will Be “Hands On” With Halloween Reboot
Find Dory, and Chill
A little less than four years ago, while they were only slightly leading the movie/TV streaming world, Netflix signed a monumental deal with Disney for exclusive rights to their films. At the time it only really included Disney and Pixar films, but the house that the Mouse built has been a little busy over the past four years, and now, they’ll be a lot more for them to offer. Continue reading Netflix Gains Exclusive Disney Streaming Rights….This Fall
Imagine for a second that you don’t know the source material for Beauty and the Beast. Yes, that may be a stretch for our nostalgia drenched culture, but go with it. If you had no idea Disney’s latest live action re-telling of their most famous animated stories, this teaser could easily be for a medieval times horror movie. Which, if you ask me, Beauty and the Beast always was. Poor girl, with a mentally unstable dad, gets held captive by a chimera, then develops Stockholm Syndrome. So romantic.

We Kinda Saw This Coming
If you’ve seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice you may have noticed the memorialized Robin suit in the Batcave. With the words “Ha Ha Ha Jokes on you Batman” spray painted across the chest. Thanks to a video posted on Batman-News, fan speculation has been confirmed as that was the suit of Jason Todd. The Robin character that was tortured and killed by The Joker. Reveal at the 1:33 mark below.

Not His Daddies Trek
The Abrams Star Trek films have been hit or miss with me. I enjoyed the first for what it was, but Into Darkness relied way too heavily on the “mystery box” that production company Bad Robot has come to be known for. The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond was met with mixed enthusiasm. While people were excited for a new Trek flick, this one co-written by Simon Pegg and directed by Justin Lin showcased a more action oriented adventure than the last two outings. And while “real” fans thought it was too much, too unlike the old-school Trek they loved. Now, with this trailer, it appears to be the most faithful Trek of the recent outings.

Live Fast. Die Young.
The year, 2002. Pop culture is deep in the waters of decadence and glitz. MTV Cribs is still a hit, you could still call in to TRL, and TV still hadn’t fallen into the hellmouth that is reality everything. Oh, that was looming on the horizon, but not quite there. In some respects, networks were still willing to take a chance on new shows aimed at young, hip audiences. One such show was Fastlane. Clearly a spiritual successor to Miami Vice, the show made the police procedural fun, sexy, and as over the top as any music video you were still able to watch in the early aughts. Then it was cancelled after one season for its trouble. Why? Because it had the misfortune of premiering just a few years too soon.
