It’s hard for me to pick the one I’d like to see come on top of this ultimate match-up when both characters deserve to die a horrible death, but if I absolutely need to choose who will win between The Walking Dead’s Negan and Batman’s arch nemesis, The Joker, than I think that the Clown Prince of Crime is crazy enough to pummel Mr. Barbed Wire Bat. So without further ado, let’s get ready to rumble! Enjoy.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock in a galaxy far, far away, you will be aware that a little movie called Star Wars: The Last Jedi is coming out in theaters. In honor of this event, I will be posting a lot more artistic tributes to this classic sci-fi franchise, starting with this stupendous Rogue One alternative movie poster by Martin Ansin. Enjoy.
As the Star Wars franchise slowly takes over the entire universe, Funny or Die submits a different kind of story for our consideration. Dare I say it? This “official” trailer for an inter-species indie drama boldly goes where no sci-fi movie has gone before. Enjoy.
It certainly looks like the Avengers (and the entire Marvel cinematic universe) are going to get their asses handed to them in the upcoming Infinity War extravaganza. We know (?) that our heroes will ultimately prevail, but at what cost? According to this latest musical mashup by Voordeel, the stakes are quite high indeed.
I love, love, love Dave Stevens’ The Rocketeer. This glorious comic, featuring the adventures of Cliff Secord against those dreaded Nazis, harkens back to serialized pulp stories of the ’50s (much like Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones franchise). Now, I’m not so old that these bring back fond memories of my youth. I simply adore the storytelling genre where heroic men and women find themselves in fantastically dire predicaments and we have to wait until the next issue or episode to find out how they get away and defeat the over-the-top villain of the day. To me, The Rocketeer encapsulates this storytelling trope perfectly. And this beautiful Mondo statue of the high-flying pilot and his girl Betty perfectly distill the essence of this classic comic book. One more thing to add to my already overflowing wish list.

Now that the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room is all the rage due to the release of James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, we’re going to see a lot more of this truly horrific actor, starting with his revised edition of the Star Wars films (kidding!)
