Colette and Warner Bros. have joined forces to celebrate 75 years of DC Comics with six pairs of comic stylin’ footwear featuring the likes of Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern. If you want them prepare to shell out some cash because they don’t come cheap (boasting a near $100 price-tag per pair).


We had a lot of fun with Isaiah Mustafa‘s original “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” Old Spice commercial which ended with the fast-talking pitchman on a horse. Well now Old Spice has made another commercial with the actor. Is it as good as the first? Maybe not, but it’s still worth a look.

Few films have been so fair game for mocking and online-snarkery than the Twilight movies – two flicks that failed to achieve any resemblance to reality, and spiraled instead towards Mary Sue stereotypes perpetuated by stiff, unintentionally hilarious dialogue and acting.  Revelers of the awful cinema, like myself, certainly have no room to complain.  But with Eclipse, the third in the series, we’re all going to have to give Jacob, Edward and Bella a break because it turns out – hold onto your butts – The Twilight Saga: Eclipse fails to be a that bad of a film.

Maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger missed his calling as a musical star. In the same vein of The Mountains of Mars from from Total Recall (the Musical) comes Conan’s musical celebration of his god Crom.

Sillof has created a gallery of Star Wars-themed Pixar characters. Like them, you will.


The title says it all. You have 60 seconds to race through a collapsing castle to save your Queen. Think you have what it takes? Find out after the jump.

Seems Warner Bros. is raising the stakes with the final Harry Potter book, broken into two films, or at least that’s what their marketing department would have you believe. Trumpeting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I as “The Motion Picture Event of a Generation” may be just a wee bit much, but I’ll let you watch for yourselves. Harry’s final journey begins on November 19th with Part I’s release. Part II is set to follow next summer.


Troy McClure has had quite the career. I think I’ll always remember him mostly fondly for “Android Beach Party” and “Hitler Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.”

We still miss you Phil.

in Short Film

I’m not sure what makes assembly lines so fascinating on film. The truth is they’re anything but in real life. Play comes from the minds of Davut Toy, Emrah Ozçelik, and Ahmet Serif Yıldırım who created the short film as part of a school project. I hope you got a good grade; you certainly deserve it.

I think most people would agree that by the time a film series or franchise gets to number three, it’s usually out of ideas.

The struggle for this list (which was not nearly as Herculean as the Top Fourth Movies in a Franchise list from last year) was disqualifying all of the great movies that didn’t quite fit the rules of being “third in a series,” as narrowly defined by the fact that it must have the same main characters, more or less.

So you get your Top 10 for sure, but this time instead of just listing the ones that were disqualified, I wrote about them too. Enjoy the Top 10 Third Movies in a Franchise list.
