Fun Find: Live Action ‘Monopoly’ Movie Trailer

By: Erik Davis on April 19, 2011 at 11:33AM Comments (11)


There’s been some kind of Monopoly movie in the works for awhile now, with Ridley Scott attached to produce (and possibly direct). From time to time we’ll get a vague update from Scott or from someone at Hasbro, but nothing much after that. Last we heard they were attempting to get a Monopoly movie in theaters by 2012 or 2013...

Angry BirdsIf you own a portable device that supports the Angry Birds app, then chances are you’re already an addict. I have no idea what it is about shooting birds through a slingshot, but the damn thing is the most addictive game ever. With the game’s popularity growing more and more each day – complete with new plush dolls for each bird and more merchandise...

Fun Finds: ‘The Legend of Zelda’ as a John Hughes Movie

By: Erik Davis on February 15, 2011 at 2:44PM Comments (7)

'The Legend of Zelda'This isn’t the first time fans have toyed around with a Legend of Zelda movie. It’s one of the only popular video games that hasn’t seen a live-action adaptation hit theaters, though that’s not stopping hardcore Zelda fans from creating their own live-action versions (via amusing trailers) of the game that follows our hero Link as he continually attempts to rescue Princess Zelda.


Fun Finds: Awesome ‘Groundhog Day’ Musical Remix

By: Erik Davis on February 2, 2011 at 4:14PM Comments (2)

'Groundhog Day'Today is Groundhog Day, which is an exciting holiday because it’s totally one of the weirdest ones we have. Essentially we pull a poor groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil out of its hole, and if he sees his shadow we get six more weeks of Winter. If the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, then we get an early Spring. It’s quite ludicrous, to be honest with you...

Well then see what you can do with this image, which, according to TheBoredNinja, includes 50 different movie titles. Some are a little bit easier than others (like the image of Shakespeare holding a heart, or that fist crunching up a bunch of dollars), but...


Fun Finds: Christian Bale Sings Powerpuff Girls and 2010: The Cinescape

By: Erik Davis on December 16, 2010 at 3:01PM Comments (3)

Christian BaleWhile promoting The Fighter, ABC sat down with Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg for an interesting little conversation that somehow ended with Bale singing the Powerpuff Girls theme song and Wahlberg recreating his "You’ve Got the Touch" moment from Boogie Nights. Fans of Bale will remember that early on his career he starred in the movie-musical Newsies...


Fun Finds: What If Disney Made 'Twilight' and 'Harry Potter'?

By: Erik Davis on November 23, 2010 at 10:58AM Comments (4)

Twi-sneyOur friends over at Next Movie created a humorous picture spread imagining what the posters for several films would look like had they been created by Disney instead of their original studios. What's funny is that when Disney-fying even the most horrific of movies like Saw V, we still find ourselves smiling and itching to watch the film with whatever small children we can find around us.

South Park explains 'Inception'Still trying to figure out what, exactly, happened in Christopher Nolan’s Inception? Well, aside from watching the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray multiple times while filling a notebook with ideas and clues and important lines of dialogue, you could just turn to those troublemakers over at South Park for answers. After taking on Jersey Shore last week, the boys...

Fun Finds: ‘Scott Pilgrim’ vs. ‘The Matrix’

By: Erik Davis on August 25, 2010 at 4:03PM Comments (8)

'Scott Pilgrim vs. The Matrix'It’s not hard to see that the action stylings of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World were inspired somewhat by The Matrix. In fact, The Matrix paved the way for a lot of the action films of the past decade – what with its super slo-mo fight scenes mixed with fantastical leaps, kicks and punches. Some of the greatest assets of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World are...
