Trailer For DEAR DICTATOR with Michael Caine, Seth Green, and Jason Biggs is Hilarious

Contrary to what many movies would have you believe; high school didn’t suck for me. I wasn’t a jock, or a popular kid by any means, but it still didn’t suck. However, I still really enjoy teen high school movies like Mean Girls and John Tucker Must Die. Dear Dictator seems to be another high school teen movie that I am going to love and we finally have a trailer for it! Before we get to the trailer though, here’s a quick synopsis:

A notorious dictator finds refuge with a single mother and her teenage daughter after a coup. While hiding out in the suburbs, he teaches the teen how to start a high school revolution by taking down the popular students.

Sounds great, right? Well then you throw in the cast of Jason Biggs, Michael Caine, Seth Green, Katie Holmes, and Odeya Rush and things get even better! Dear Dictator is set to come out March 16, 2018, and I’m excited.

Sundance Review: JULIET, NAKED is the Rom-Com We’ve All Been Waiting For

JULIETTE, NAKED-social.jpg

Based on the novel by Nick Hornby, Juliet, Naked tells the story of Annie (played by Rose Byrne) and her boyfriend Duncan (Chris O’Dowd) whose one main quirk is that he is obsessed with a now MIA musician named Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke). Duncan runs an online blog/forum about Tucker and obsesses over his music, specifically one particular album titled “Juliet”.

At her wit's end, Annie one day infiltrates the online forum and posts a negative comment, to which she receives an email applauding her honesty from none other than Tucker Crowe himself. The two begin emailing back and forth, mainly sharing regrets that they haven’t lived their best lives up to this point. Their exchanges are innocent and platonic, but shortly after Duncan and Annie break up, Annie finds herself frantically picking an outfit and hopping on a train to meet Tucker, who is visiting his daughter in nearby London.

Rose Byrne shines as the quick-witted yet awkward lead and Ethan Hawke is as charming as ever as the washed-up rockstar who’s really trying to be a better person. And it’s impossible not to like Chris O’Dowd, even when he’s being an ignorant jerk. I’m not big on romantic comedies, especially not any made outside the 1990s, but this movie was great. It’s nothing flashy. It’s simple, sweet, and really enjoyable. Plus, despite its suggestive title, they keep the mushy stuff at a minimum. Some may be disappointed by that, but I appreciate a movie that leaves the audience wanting more.

Physics Girl Talks Breaking Wine Glasses with Your Voice

We’ve all seen in movies and TV shows that when people sing a high pitch and glass or glasses break. Do you know how or why that happens though? In short, it’s not about hitting a high frequency but hitting the correct frequency for a long enough period of time. The Physics Girl YouTube channel explored how this happens and some explanations behind it using science. I love that there are awesome YouTube channels that explain things with science! One of the nice things about Physics Girl is that she uses simple analogies and explanations for most people to understand. Have you ever broken anything with your voice?

Video Catches You Up on Who Thanos Is

Are you excited for Avengers: Infinity War? Of course, you are, who isn’t? Well, then you know Thanos is going to be the big bad guy and has been teased since The Avengers came out in 2012. But who is Thanos? If you don’t know, or just want to brush up on your Thanos knowledge, Screen Rant has you covered. They recently published a video that explores the history of the character including how he came to be, how he was “inspired by” DC’s Darkseid, and how he’s changed over time. It’s a little over 5 minutes, so it’s not too long and gets you caught up on who the big bad will be in Infinity War. I’m sure they’ll once again change a few things to better match the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but you’ll get the gist of his history.

Here’s Viggo Mortensen Speaking Seven Different Languages

It doesn't take much to convince the GeekTyrant audience Viggo Mortensen hung the moon, but here's something that should impress even his most stringent critics. Check out this video of Mortensen speaking seven different languages, and not just going through the motions, but speaking as if he truly understands what he's saying in each one! How anyone can do that and have room for any other talents is amazing to me, so I guess what I'm saying is I think Mortensen is amazing. Let us know in the comments if you think he is as well:

Free Lootcrates Are Coming For PUBG Players On The Xbox One

download (5).jpg

PUBG Corp. has revealed recently that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has reached over 4 million players on the Xbox One. As a treat for Xbox One fans, the developer is celebrating this milestone by giving away Battle Points for Xbox players to use on loot crates. 

Xbox One players will get a total of 30,000 Battle Points that they can use on in-game cosmetic items, given that they have purchased the game and created a character before the cut off, which will be by 12 AM PT/3 AM ET /8AM UTC on January 31. 

Veteran players of PUBG knows just how far 30,000 worth of Battle Points can go. Usually, when a player wins a solo game, they get rewarded with 1,000 BP. With 30,000 BP, players can already buy six crates in a week, that would cost around 21,700. Of course, if you want your money to go further, it would be best to wait for the weekly reset instead of buying all 6 in one week. Instead you can buy one per week and it would get you 42 boxes for your 30,000BP, however, it will take 42 weeks to do so. 

PUBG Corp is definitely changing its tune when it comes to loot crates as compared to the many controversies PUBG has faced last year with its loot crates system. Last July, fans showed their disappointment when real money keys were required to open certain crates. This outcry from fans quickly prompted a personal apology from the game’s creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene. Lastly, earlier this year, PUBG has published the drop rates of certain cosmetic items in the game, that received tremendous backlash from the gaming community, which resulted to critics claiming how PUBG is crossing the line between mirco-transactions and gambling. 

How will you spend your 30,000 Battle Points from PUBG to celebrate the game reaching 4 million players on the Xbox One?

DEAD CELLS Is Coming To The Switch, PS4, And Xbox One This Year

Dead Cells, the highly successful Steam Early Access game from French developer, Motion Twin, is now officially heading to consoles. The developer of the game has already confirmed before that the PC title will also be coming to consoles, but has just announced specifics on its development for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. 

In a press release, Steve Filby, the producer of the game at Motion Twin said that, “we’re thrilled to finally confirm that we’ll be bringing the Dead Cells experience to console players.”

Although Motion Twin is still yet to announce a specific date for the console release, they said that it will be coming “later this year.” The PC version of the game was initially launched last May via Steam Early Access, and the developer is also yet to announce a date for the official PC release. Although FIlby also mentioned in an interview with Polygon that, “ideally, we would like to release all the console versions and the PC version simultaneously.” So we can probably expect the official PC release to take place later this year together with the game’s console versions, if not earlier. 

Filby also shared that Motion Twin will be handling the console porting of the game itself, and the company even hired extra help to make it happen. Besides the Windows version of the game, Motion Twin is also planning to bring the game to both the Mac and Linux, which “should be coming out over the summer.”

Currently, the Steam Early Access of the game has been a hit on the PC since its initial launch eight months ago. Motion Twin was able to sell more than 600,000 copies of the game on Steam and GOG. The popularity of the game stems from its combination of Metroidvania elements.

Hugh Jackman Has Now Joined in on the Fake CROCODILE DUNDEE Sequel Fun!

The teasing of this fake Crocodile Dundee sequel continues! This time, with Hugh Jackman! The actor recently shared a video showing of his character and it came with the note, "You didn’t really think they’d bring back Dundee ... without me, did you?! #DundeeMovie".

Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home, has been confirmed to be a big Super Bowl commercial created for Australian tourism. The project also includes Danny McBride, Chris Hemsworth, and Paul Hogan

Crocodile Dundee is back. Well, actually, he’s missing in the Outback. And the only person who might be able to find him is the loudmouthed American son no one knew he had. Introducing Danny McBride as Brian Dundee. This son of a legend is forced to channel his Aussie roots as he embarks on the ultimate adventure in the land down under. It’s time to live up to the family name. Unlike his father, Brian grew up a true city kid. But that won’t stop him from picking up his dad’s oversized knife and launching into the Australian outback, completely unprepared for what lies ahead.

Hemsworth takes on the role of Wally Jr., the son of Dundee’s business partner Walter “Wally” Reilly, who was played by John Meillon in the first two films. It's kind of a shame that this whole sequel to Crocodile Dundee is fake. At least we will be able to enjoy all of the things that this elaborate advertisment brings us!
