Columbo Meets Sharknado, as Kevin Pollak is "Sharklumbo"

Peter Falk has been dead for three years, but that hasn't stopped Kevin Pollak from milking one of the two major impersonations he's always done ("Shatnado" will presumably be next). It kinda wo...

Was New TMNT's Shredder Meant to Be a White Guy?

From the beginning, it was perhaps the oddest casting decision made for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - we were told that William Fichtner was going to play Shredder, and his character na...

Finally, a Proper Doctor Who Season 8, Episode 1 Trailer

I'm psyched to see Capaldi, but the whole bit with samurai swords, and Clara stealing one of the Doctor's signature lines at the end, feels a bit forced and cheesy. Then again: Doctor Who? Chee...

Viral Video du Jour: Anime Ambulance-Chasers Will Fight YOUR Otaku Arrests

This is not the slickest viral video ever, but I'm sharing it because (a) ambulance-chasing attorney ads generally aren't slick either, (b) the actors are all English which makes them seem like...

Contact in the Desert: Luke's Mother-in-Law Reports From the UFO Show

When we heard that our weekly advice columnist and favorite ex-cop/crazy cat lady was volunteering at a convention of UFO-buffs, we couldn't resist asking her to send in her thoughts, and pictur...

Weekend Hangover: Anne Rice Rebooted, Milli Vanilli and Mario, Rubber Duck and Bondage

What stories might you (and we) have missed over the weekend? Fear not, dear readers, for many of them have been gathered here for your perusal via reader submissions, and the assistance of Kyl...

Weekend Open Thread: R.I.P. Menahem Golan of Golan-Globus

I'd have written a longer post but I didn't quite feel qualified. It would have all been about Dolph Lundgren movies. I think we need to post some favorite Cannon films trailers and clips in co...

This Isn't a Photo of Zoe Saldana as Gamora

Regular readers know I'm always quite impressed with Hot Toys - but this is a new level even for them. The only reason I know that's not a photo of the actress is because I got it from the Faceb...

Would You Pay $500 to Cuddle Godzilla?

From Steiff, the company that basically invented the teddy bear, thereby assuring that children the world over have a distorted, overly cute view of large ground-based predators, comes this new...

That Time Young Joaquin Phoenix Was a Murderous Superboy

Though this clip has been on YouTube almost as long as Topless Robot has been around, I think, like Mark Millar, that this is the first time we're noticing it. Joaquin, then known as Leaf, does...

The Tick Bites That Will Turn You Vegetarian

On TV and in the comics, the Tick would attempt to stop the Man-Eating Cow. In real life - and most ironically, in Texas - ticks are now preventing men from eating cows. Just like their big blue...

Kick-Ass Artist John Romita Jr. Shoots on Jim Carrey

We remember how this one played out initially, right? After playing Col. Stars and Stripes in Kick-Ass 2, Jim Carrey publicly refused to promote the movie as a grand gesture against then-recent...

Luke's Mother-in-Law Reports in From UFO Convention "Contact in the Desert"

As you may have gleaned from her recent columns, Luke's mother-in-law is volunteering this weekend at the big UFO convention out in Joshua Tree. As time and Internet allows, she may file the occ...

I READ YOUR FANFIC! "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Thriller"

If you want to submit fan fiction for me to read, please send it - or a link to it - to toplessrobot-at-gmail-dot-com with subject line "Read my Fanfic!" Title: "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'...

8 Reasons Why Marvel Studios Won't Make a Comics-Accurate Howard The Duck Movie

SPOILER WARNING: This daily list contains light spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy. If you're one of the millions of people that earned it a record breaking opening weekend, you may proceed. O...

Proposed Resident Evil TV Prequel Series Could Be the Movie We All Wanted in the First Place

I appreciate Paul W. S. Anderson's logic; really, I do. We've seen the story of the game play out already, so why not do something else that's in the same universe? Except that the result didn't...

Saturday Night Live's "Colon Blow" Cereal to Be a Real Thing

As part of a new, massive line of SNL-inspired product, hipster candy chain It'Sugar is actually making something bearing this name. No details on what it actually is yet, though I assume it wil...

TR Review: Into the Storm, the Found-Footage Twister You Didn't Know You Don't Need

It's been said many a time before about a great many movies (as opposed to may great ones), but Into the Storm really does represent a triumph of special effects above any other aspects of cinem...

Drug Droid, Kirk Stormtrooper Highlight "Space Madness" Bootleg Art Toys

Sure, R2 units have a useful tool for almost every job...but have you noticed how they can never keep their companion protocol droids from being hopelessly neurotic, or their owners from being t...

Jim Lee, DC Artists Redesign General Mills Monster Cereals Boxes

Meet Jim Lee's Boo Berry, Dave Johnson's Franken Berry, and Terry and Rachel Dodson's Count Chocula. All of whom will now get their own Warner Bros. solo movies before Wonder Woman. Is it just...
