If you're a fan of classic Doctor Who, you're going to need to pick up The Doctors: Monsters! later this year. This upcoming two-disc DVD features a one-hour documentary titled 'I Was a Doctor Who Monster!’ (hosted by seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy) as well as five episodes of the ‘Myth Makers’ series (hosted by the voice of the Daleks Nicholas Briggs) which will also touch on the classic monsters of the franchise and the people who played them.
Daleks, Cybermen, Yeti's and the like will all be featured in this upcoming DVD scheduled to release March 5. Check out some art for the feature below, and give some love to Bloody Disgusting for giving us the heads up!
I've been saying since I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi that Captain Phasma is the new Boba Fett, and this video proves it. I mean that in the sense that her stories outside of the films are far more entertaining, and much like Fett, she died in a way that really undermines just how much of a bad ass she was. Take her armor for example, which I just now learned is blaster resistant and was once the property of Emperor Palpatine. It's a damn shame we didn't see that armor get put to better use, but I'm sure the expanded universe stories about her will make mention of it quite often. Learn the history of Phasma's armor below, and let us know if you think she was a wasted character.
Adidas announced they were releasing a line of Dragon Ball Z themed sneakers awhile back, and now their designs inspired by the series two biggest characters have hit the web. Check out the designs and continue reading below:
Both of these designs look incredible enough to make me want to wear orange and yellow shoes out in public. For those that haven't noticed it yet, Goku's shoe has the Turtle School logo on the back, while Vegeta's shoes are adorned with the logo for Capsule Corp. Personally, I'm a bigger fan of Vegeta's shoe, but I think both of them look amazing. Which one do you think is better? As mentioned in the tweets, both shoes are coming later this year.
In an ongoing effort to analyze moviegoers, Dolby has developed technology that can determine what movie you're watching, based on your breath. Poppy Crum, the chief scientist at Dolby Labs, shared the details at CES 2018 (via Engadget):
"In the cinema, we can measure exhalants [...] and be able to tell what movie they're watching, just by the chemical signature,"
Well that's weird as hell. What's next? Is Dolby going to be sending breath analysis to the front desk to let them know I'm sneaking in snacks?! How do you feel about this technology, and are you ok with Dolby measuring your breath to determine your reaction to a film?
Maisie Williams isn't Arya Stark, but that doesn't stop fans from coming up to her and asking to do bizarre Arya Stark things. The Game of Thrones actress was on Graham Norton and revealed that people often come up to her and want her to recite her kill list but then include their name as well, which I personally think is a bit weird. Watch Williams give an example of how she does this for fans below, and get a chuckle out of her adding Tom Hanks to the list!
If you're a die-hard Harry Potter fan, you gotta check this out. Some fans got together and made a fan film that explores the origin of Voldemort, and it's not bad! Voldemort: Origins of the Heir dive into the character Tom Riddle and his progression to becoming The Dark Lord. And while the acting isn't always top notch, the whole production is pretty solid for what it is.
The film was written, directed and edited by Gianmaria Pezzato, who also did all the VFX work. He really did do a fantastic job bringing this story to life. Check it out below, and let us know what you think!
Have you ever been laying in your room and wishing your projector would just come to you? You probably haven't, because tech like that didn't exist until now, and it's surprisingly less pointless than you think. Essentially Keecker is R2-D2. It can project images for you, roll around the house, and make noises. Beyond that, it can also act as a 360 camera and patrol your house while you're away for home security. Honestly, the more I hear about this robot, the more I don't think its a complete waste of time. Check it out in action below, and tell us if you'd buy a Keecker.
Are you wondering what the true future of 4K lies? Sony might have the answer, but it's nowhere near commercially viable at this time. The company is showcasing the Sony Life UX 4K projector at CES 2018, and for just $30,000 you too can have a 120 inch 4K projector in your home. Constructed within a modestly size coffee table with a marble top, this projector is meant to short throw and keep your projector out of the way of the rest of your living room. According to Engadget, the device also transmits 360-degree atmospheric sound, which definitely makes me more interested in it as the future of television.
Of course, there's no way in hell I'm paying the equivalent of a new car just to keep my living room dim at all hours when the television is on. When I hit the lottery though, this is going to be my first purchase.
Before I get into what this story is about, let me start by saying seeing Gillian Anderson with blonde hair is a jarring thing. Now that I've spoken my peace about that, on to the story. Anderson was on The Late Late Show last night and shared her near miss of what was about to be a very awkward conversation with her son about sex. Fortunately, things aren't as they seem, but I'll let Anderson tell the story because it's a lot better hearing it from her.
What life does one live where they spend their free time playing Star Wars songs on a pipe organ? That's what I'm asking myself as I watch this man wind his way through "Cantina Band," without a care in the world. Where does one even get the sheet music to play that? Did he make it himself? These are answers I don't have, but I do know I will be subscribing to his channel. What about you?
