Does YOUR Star Wars fan film include the original Tatooine locations in Tunisia? No. It probably does not. Ironic that being "from" the desert planet is a point of pride in real life, when everyone in the movies was trying to get away from it.
I don't notice anybody claiming to be from the forests of Endor.More >>
If you're a fan of Adult Swim in general or just someone who constantly wish for more adult-themed cartoons, damnit, then chances are you may have recently stumbled upon that network's newest large-scale does of high concept silliness, Rick and Morty. Springing from the minds of both cult animator Justin Roiland and cult Community godfather Dan Harmon, the show was double-stamped for nerd consumption from the beginning and already seems to have hit it off with viewers and critics alike. Most of them, anyway...More >>
I know, the Aswang is a demon from Filipino folklore that's somewhere between vampire and werewolf. But its name is "ass wang."
I don't have a joke. Do I need one here? Who's afraid of an ass wang? Want to see a good ass-wang penetration? Because there's video of an ass wang probing. Will the ass wang drain your fluids?
I checked with a Filipino friend - the "a" sound is generally pronounced "ah," though the "s" and everything else are pronounced as you;d expect. So if you say it properly, you sound like an English person saying "arse wang." Which is even better.

Seriously, who would have thought the mind behind Family Guy could somehow Voltron up with Carl Sagan's widow and the man, the mustache, Mr. Neil deGrasse Tyson to make a big deal science show that might just get everyone in your household hyped about the universe, life, and the origins of both?
Fox and NatGeo invited Topless Robot out to Space Camp in Huntsville to view the premiere of the 13-episode series and have a chat with its co-creator and Carl Sagan's widow, Ann Druyan in advance of its March 9th premiere. And I have to say Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey is good - very good. So good, I would hazard to say that the reinvention of the classic '70s science series is actually important. And we're going to tell you the eight reasons why you shouldn't miss it.

"Got my back to the wall, this is a rap, this is war, take a sabbatical, I battle anybody who want it." Game of Thrones is arguably one of the whitest shows going, but it's getting an official "mixtape" called Catch the Throne for free download, in which rappers sampling the show's soundtrack will create "songs that encourage and inspire listeners who may not have been immersed in the storylines to catch up on previous seasons of Game of Thrones using HBOGO." (Somehow I doubt there'll be one entitled "Pay for Premium Cable, Yo," but that does seem to be the subtext.)
"I sit and think when I'm in my zone, cuz life is like a game of thrones." Starting March 7th, you can download it for free. Will you?More >>
For us...appropriately...it's Tuesday.
(Yes, I can see where you'd think I'm overdoing this reference. But this is actually a Street Fighter movie parody. It won't get MORE appropriate)
And Jeebus, Jean-Claude Van Damme will just do ANYTHING now, huh?More >>
Via a non-embeddable trailer at Game Informer, and a DC All Access video that has apparently been removed by the user right after they sent me an email asking me to post it, comes a look at the new Arkham game, which initially seems to begin like The Dark Knight Rises, with an asthmatic, raspy metal voice I presume to be Bane and a crowded bridge. And in a touch I really wish had been left behind to the cinematic past, this Batman appears to have the magic disappearing black paint around his eyes.
(Andolini in comments below has posted an embeddable version, so just keep scrolling down to see)
Looks like a pretty epic scope, though. And you can drive the Batmobile...or play as Harley Quinn. Now, in TV news...More >>
The guy who traffics in "ironic" racism and obvious '80s references, the producer of Star Trek: Voyager, and the genius who's making science fun again walk into a TV Studio. Surprisingly, they come out with something that looks pretty good, though I guess in a way it plays to all three of their strengths - the original Carl Sagan Cosmos is an obvious '80s reference, it's an effects-heavy voyage through uncharted space, and it needs a smart guy to host and make it fun.
Keep reading for a first-look at the new Cosmos...More >>
