Interviewing Simon Pegg looks like an awful lot of fun. Pegg sat down with Popular Science Magazine in May and gave them an earful about everything from warp drive to on-ship pizza delivery. He talks about his favorite piece of technology, explains warp drive, and answers the classic question about who’d win a fight, Kirk or Picard. Show More Summary
How many of you know Jon Lajoie? I’ guessing at least a few of you have heard of the guy as he’s both a YouTube star AND he played Taco on “The League”, which was a damn funny show. But did you know that before all the comedy he was a serious musician working in […]
A team of worldwide creators set to market Fantastic Beasts over the coming months was introduced this week at VidCon. As this is one of the biggest fan conventions based around the power of online video, (originally conceived by YouTube’s Vlogbrothers, Hank and John...Show More Summary
When I first relayed the reveal of the post-apocalyptic PS4-exclusive Days Gone, I compared it to The Last of Us and “Sons of Anarchy”. This was before I realized one very cool thing the game is borrowing from Hollywood’s commercially successful, albeit woefully generic, adaptation of Max Brooks’ eponymous novel that ultimately had little to […]
When it comes to food, I have a very open mind. I’ll try pretty much anything you put in front of me, within reason of course. I’ve had bull testicles, sea urchin, alligator, ostrich, and other animals that I can’t even remember the name of. I always felt that trying new things is a great […]
If you’ve ever built your own potato gun, you probably don’t think twice about the explosions that launch the projectile—mostly because they’re hidden within it. But SmarterEveryDay’s Dustin built his potato cannon out of clear plastic so when filmed with a high-speed camera at 20,000 frames per second, the explosions are revealed. And they’re terrifying.

Guest Review By: Andrew Campana It should be immediately noted that this film started off as a joke—a fake April Fool’s Day trailer on the website of the latest Ju-On movie, teasing the ultimate face-off between the main villains of J-Horror’s two most popular franchises. In December of last year, though, it was announced that Sadako vs. […]
‘That Was a Franchise?’ is a recurring feature that looks at classic horror films that you might not have realized actually spawned entire franchises. This feature is meant to shatter that notion and explore if in the end these classics should be remembered as a franchise or solely as the original film Believe it or […]
The talented pilots and cinematographers of France’s BigFly skillfully piloted a camera-equipped drone through the sanctuary of the 137-year-old Église Saint-Louis de Paimbœuf. Given the church is filled with priceless art and architecture, the skills needed to ensure the drone didn’t hit anything are easily as impressive as the stunning footage they captured. Read more...
The promo for “Happy Birthday to Me” had me thinking Scream was going to go full bottle episode on us, which would have been great. Unfortunately the party that was marketed to us only took up about a third of the episode (though it was a highly entertaining third at that. Fortunately, this proved to be Scream’s strongest […]
Re-visiting the UK’s radically unique horror-comedy series, ‘Psychoville,’ on the seventh anniversary of its premiere Mixing horror and comedy is hard. There’s a reason that the niche sub-category of horror-comedy hybrids is a hard one to nail successfully in film, and arguably an even more challenging balance on television. We might currently be experiencing a […]
There wasn’t anything particularly wrong with the opening credits for Killjoys—it was a fun, pop-fueled retro introduction to the show. However, for season 2, the show is going with an eye-popping new introduction. Read more...
THIS is the blog entry you’ve all been waiting for. Melissa O’Neil, Dark Matter’s TWO, answers YOUR questions. And there are A LOT of them so let’s not waste anytime and get to it. But first, let me just say this about the lovely Melissa. I remember watching her very first audition for the role of the […]
The team that taught us how to press ‘x’ to Jason in Heavy Rain are returning with another gritty cinematic thriller, this time of the neo-noir variety and set in a dystopian vision of Detroit not too far from now, where humans and androids coexist and everyone gets along just fine. That last bit was […]
Per those that should know, Finding Nemo is Pixar’s third highest grossing movie to date. Meaning that expectations are high for its 10-years later follow-up, Finding Dory. But is it worth the wait? Pretty much, yes. [Read more......

Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness is one of the most important “gateway” horror films, which opened the door for many of us into the genre. In fact, I often see people mention that they saw Army before they even knew The Evil Dead or its sequel existed. No matter what order you experienced Sam Raimi’s […]
I’ve been lauding the work of composer Joseph Bishara for a while. While he composed several films since beginning in 1998, it almost certainly was the 2010 supernatural horror film Insidious that propelled him into the mainstream, his music reaching and haunting new and wide audiences. The last few seconds of “The Insidious Plane” is […]
I’m not a huge toy collector. I generally exercise my nerd muscles in other ways, like re-watching certain films over and over, including 2001: A Space Odyssey. But this recreation of 2001's iconic monolith may make me reconsider—though it’s $300, a sum that would probably buy an unlimited supply of bush babies. Read more...
