Chill Out With This Awesome Animation And Music Video

The work week can be stressful, and sometimes you just need something to relax. Those looking to find a chill vibe during this crazy week need to check out this awesome music video featuring the music of Nitai Hershkovits. The animation in this trippy music video is made by prolific and typically trending animator Felix Colgrave, and its pretty amazing. I can't wholly say it's super geeky, but I can say that if anyone can listen to contemporary jazz and animation and feel relaxed, its probably a geeky person. Check it out below:

This Live Version Of “They’re Taking The Hobbits To Isengard” Will Make Your Day

Today I stumbled upon a live version of "They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard," on YouTube, and as much as I don't want hate mail for getting the song stuck in anyone's head today, I had to share it. This beautiful rendition comes from the guys in The Dread Crew of Oddwood, who probably get booked in every geeky event they apply to off this song alone. 

Hear their version of the song, and then check out the original below because you're going to want to listen to it after hearing this: 

DEN OF THIEVES Is The Best Action Movie of 2018, So Far – One Minute Movie Review

NEP3614851.jpg

Christian Gudegast is the writer behind some pretty good action films like London Has Fallen and A Man Apart. Now in his directorial debut he brings us Den Of Thieves, the action thriller that pits two crews on both sides of the law against each other in modern day Los Angeles. Gerard Butler and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson co-star in this action-packed heist film, but is it just another mediocre movie?

Rian Johnson Just Defended A Plot Point Of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI In A Hilarious Way

You can hound Rian Johnson day in and day and complain about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but it doesn't seem like you're going to break him. The director has been making it his goal to address each and every issue fans have had with his film, and his latest might just be his best yet. 

Johnson spent today on Twitter specifically addressing the scene in which Luke uses "Force Projection," to transport himself to the field of battle. Those who dislike the scene have remarked Luke's appearance is far outside of the realm of possibility for what a Jedi can do. I could explain how Johnson proved that's not true, but it's a lot better if you just follow the pictures by clicking the tweet thread (yes there's more than two pictures) below:

Yep, turns out Force Projection is canon. Of course, this is a silly argument to make as if it wasn't, someone would've stepped in and told Johnson he couldn't do it well before the film made its way to theaters. Now if he can just explain how people can survive the freezing cold of space but die of sadness...

Did you have a problem with Luke's scene? Thanks to Comicbook for bringing this to our attention.

Lindsay Lohan Still Wants to Be BATGIRL and Explains How Her Past is Keeping Her From Getting It

First things first, I don’t think Lindsay Lohan should be Batgirl in Joss Whedon’s film. I just don’t think she’d be a good fit. However, the actress really wants this role. She even uploaded this picture to Twitter:

Sadly, she has mentioned that people are bringing up her past mistakes as reasons to not cast her. I didn't realize people were disqualifying her because of her personal past, but I'm not terribly surprised by it given the world we currently live in. To address these haters, Lohan was recently on The Wendy Williams Show and talks about how by bringing up her past, people are distracting from possibilities of her “meeting with people to do Batgirl or maybe doing a Mean Girls 2.” I sympathize with Lohan here. Yeah, she messed up, but it seems she’s trying to fix things and get back into acting. I applaud her for that. I still don’t think she should be Batgirl, but maybe we the people shouldn’t keep dragging her through the mud for things she’s working on. I really enjoyed her in Mean Girls and Freaky Friday. I think she could be great in a more comedic role. I could see her follow in the same vein as Tina Fey even. Maybe instead of drudging up the past, we can just point to her just not being the right fit. I’d love to see her come back into acting though, just not as Batgirl.

Rian Johnson Once Again Explained Rey’s Parents In An Effort To Put It To Rest

If you're someone who is still convinced Rian Johnson intentionally misled people with who Rey's parents were in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, you gotta let the past die. Johnson has once again stated that the call was his to make regarding Rey's parents, and that he ultimately chose Rey's parents to be drug-addicts to show that the Force is not a tool exclusive to a handful of individuals within a Jedi bloodline. 

Check out Johnson's latest comments regarding that in the video below, and continue on below:

I get there were people who wanted Rey to be a Kenobi or something like that, but I have to say I like Johnson's reasoning here if only because it ultimately ensures the health of the Star Wars franchise. Whether you like it or not, Disney is going to continue these films up until the day you draw your last breath, and the only way to ensure that continues to happen is to establish that the story of the Force expands well beyond the Skywalker family.

Whether you agree with it or not, I think ultimately this move is going to be remembered as a pivotal step in the future of the Star Wars franchise be it good or bad. Do you agree, or do you think J.J. Abrams is just going to retcon Rey's parentage in Episode IX?

JUSTICE LEAGUE Blu-Ray Trailer Hints at New Scene

Justice League is one of the many films that seemed to divide fans in 2017. I’ve heard so many mixed reviews from people saying it was great, to meh, to don’t waste your time. Some fans even started a petition to get a Zack Snyder version of the film which as I understand it, would be impossible for Warner Bros to provide. However, the trailer for the Blu-Ray version of the film dropped and it says there is a major deleted scene that would be included. Now, whether this is enough to appease those Snyder fans or even help boost the movie in other fans eyes, we’ll just have to see. Here’s the full list of Bonus Features for the DVD and Blu-Ray bundles:

The SWORD IN THE STONE Live-Action Remake Now Has A Director

The Sword in the Stone live-action remake just got a director, and it's looking like this film may have a much darker tone than the original animated Disney film. THR reports director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has gotten the job, and will take on the script written by Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman. 

If the name of the director isn't ringing any bells, perhaps you'll remember him from his film 28 Weeks Later. Now, we're not expecting Disney to let Fresnadillo go quite as dark as he's capable of with this film, but the casting certainly indicates they're not looking to do a live-action shot for shot recreation of the original film. Beyond the zombie film, Fresnadillo has also directed episodes of Falling Water and Salvation, which definitely show Disney has a different vision for this film. 

How do you feel about a darker Sword in the Stone? I'll be honest I have no strong feelings towards the original so I have no issue with Disney trying something new. What's your take?

A Director Of THE HANDMAID’S TALE Could Be Directing A Future STAR WARS Film

A director of The Handmaid's Tale, Reed Morano, could be at the helm of a future Star Wars film. THR reports the director recently met with Kathleen Kennedy, and while she couldn't say what the discussion was about, she did have nothing but positive things to say about the producer:

“[Kathleen Kennedy is] amazing. We’re talking about adventure movies, and I’m not even remembering that she produced Goonies. Any movie that I put my finger on that I loved when I was growing up was a movie that she produced. Anyway, it was a great meeting. Obviously, I can’t say anything about what else we were talking about...I guess [Kathleen Kennedy] was watching [The Handmaid’s Tale] with her daughter and then called people and was like, ‘Who’s this Reed person?’ She probably thought I was a guy because of my name.

Episode IX is already off limits, but it's been well established Disney is looking to pump out a healthy amount of Star Wars films throughout the next decade and beyond, so it's possible Kennedy was gauging Morano's interest in helming a future film for the franchise. 

Morano has directed three episodes of The Handmaid's Tale, as well as an episode of ShowTime's Billions and AMC's Halt And Catch Fire. That's too wide of a range to speculate what Kennedy might have in mind for Morano and Star Wars, but considering Kennedy noticed her while watching The Handmaid's Tale...could it have to do with a story like that? Anybody got any ideas?
