Marvel has been on a strong cartoon streak for awhile, but no era of their cartoons will ever top the theme songs produced in the 90s. I know some of you are already humming the X-Men theme in your head as I make that statement, but damn that's only the tip of the Iceberg! Spider-man, Iron-Man, Hulk?! If you don't remember any of these, you need a refresher. This video will bring you up to speed, and probably have you humming at least one of these themes throughout the day:
If you're looking for the best late-night interview on television in 2018, you've found it. Jim Carrey showed up during Jeff Daniels' Conan interview and it turned into the most amazing, hilarious, and heartfelt interview I've seen in a long time. Daniels and Carrey cut up like it was old times, told the viewers who didn't like the Dumb and Dumber sequel to go screw themselves, and generally proved they were best friends in real life. Check out the interview below, and then call up your best friend and tell them you love them:
Dwayne Johnson is killing it once again at the box office with Rampage, but there was once a point where the actor threatened to not do the film at all after he got peeved reading the original ending. Spoiler alert for those who haven't seen the film, but The Rock took issue with the original film's ending featuring his albino gorilla buddy George kicking the bucket at the film's end. Johnson explained why he didn't like that ending, and why it almost kept him from doing the film (Source: Rolling Stone):
“I don’t like a sad ending. Life brings that shit – I don’t want it in my movies. When the credits roll, I want to feel great…We had a big meeting where they gave me all the reasons they thought George should die. He sacrifices himself saving the world. Killing these animals who had ill intentions to harm mankind. He sacrifices himself like a brave soldier. OK. But this is a movie! There’s a crocodile the size of a football stadium – we’re not making Saving Private Ryan.
My problem is I have a relationship with an audience around the world. For years I’ve built a trust with them that they’re gonna come to my movies and feel good. So every once in a while, you have to drop this card, which is: You’re gonna have to find another actor. We need to figure something out, otherwise I’m not gonna do the movie.”
Well, at least we never need to worry about a film with The Rock in it having a sad ending I guess? It's kind of crazy he has that kind of pull in Hollywood, but not surprising considering the money his films bring in! Do you think the film is better with the ending it has, or do you think the original ending would've been better? Does it really matter?
Whether you're a fan of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia or you aren't doesn't matter, you will crack a smile at some point watching this video. This compilation will really give you a great look at some of the show's wildest moments, and how this show is still on the air over a decade after it first aired. Check out the clips, and tell me your favorite moment from the show down in the comments:
Since 2011 Lars von Trier has been banned from Cannes Film Festival. For those that don't remember, the ban came after von Trier made the controversial remark that Hitler did "some things wrong," but that he could ultimately sympathize with the dictator. The comment was not well received by critics or audiences, and ever since, he's been out of the festival, until perhaps now.
Variety reported that Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux said von Trier could make his return to Cannes with his upcoming controversial film The House That Jack Built, which stars Uma Thurman, Matt Dillon, and Bruno Ganz.
Will von Trier accept the invitation, or will he tell Cannes to stick it where the sun don't shine? What do you think he should do, as well as what do you think he will actually do?
Star Wars fan Allan Carver from Queensland, Nova Scotia built himself an incredibly cool looking electric powered TIE Fighter that's totally rideable! It's roughly one third the scale of a real tie fighter as depicted in the movies. I would absolutely love to ride around town in this bad boy!
The TIE Fighter is powered by mobility chair motors and tops out 6mph so it's not very fast. It can also be piloted remotely or from inside the cockpit via a remote controller. If that's not enough for you, it also makes TIE Fighter sounds! Carver says:
"I didn't want people to look at this and start picking it apart. I want people to look at this and go 'That's a TIE fighter.' The proportions are right, the details are close."
"I was like 'You know what would be cool? If you could actually drive a giant TIE fighter.'"
It's pretty sweet Star Wars ride and Carver should be proud of his TIE Fighter creation. You can check it out in action in the video below!
The most delicious sounding drink is coming to Japan this summer, although Americans should be well acquainted with the taste by now. Coca-Cola is releasing a lemon twist on a new Coca-Cola Frozen product, which will be released in the packaging seen above and below:
I'm already mad because I know this isn't coming to America anytime soon, but I guess if I really wanted to I could probably whip up my own Frozen Lemon Coke float. Is this a summer treat you'd like to see in America?
American sushi is delicious, as is traditional Japanese sushi, but the two have taken different paths as time goes on. So, what would it look like if someone who makes Japanese sushi offered a traditional take on modern American sushi? JunsKitchen has an answer for us. Honestly, it doesn't look all that different to me except there isn't a ton of chipotle mayo, but maybe that's the difference maker:
This past weekend offered the world its first ever look inside Tesla's Model 3 factory, as the company struggles to keep up production with consumer demand for its first commercially viable car. I'll be honest, the tour of this car factory looks basically the same as any other car factory, but it is cool to see Elon Musk talk about his products and the passion he shows for them, so I think this one is worth a watch. Check it out below:
A few months ago, developer Housemarque, creator of Super Stardust HD and Resogun ended their stint in the arcade genre with their last title, Nex Machina, which was warmly received in the gaming community. However, Housemarque revealed that “lackluster sales” of the game forced the company to change directions if they want to stay in the business of making games. Now, the developer announced a new upcoming title called Stormdivers, which will be a “multiplayer-centric experience,” Housemarque announced ay Reboot Develop 2018.
The developer has been working on Stormdivers for two years now, and Housemarque’s Ilari Kuittinen and Mikael Haveri shared the game’s first preview, which you can watch below:
Stormdivers will be the first title that Housemarque will “treat as an on-going service.” It will implement a “high flying and heavy hitting experience.” Although the first trailer doesn’t reveal much information on what the game will be about, it is apparent that this won’t be a typical top-down perspective game that has been a constant feature with Housemarque titles.
“As a part of our recent transition away from our core genres, we’ve had a hard look at what really makes up an arcade game and how can we bring those elements to whole new heights,” said Housemarque. “Fortunately a few greats have been able to show the way and bring gameplay centric experiences to wider audiences. We hope to expand that progress as we bring our explosive effects and second-to-second gameplay to new genres.”
