To the batpoles, people! This one goes ALL the way down through the bottom of the barrel that is New 52 Week 4. Kick Ass makes us hate life, and we’re a bit gobsmacked that Aquaman brought the most fun to an otherwise really depressing week in comics. Join alphamonkey and the Cap’n for a traipse through the broken dreams of our soggy pull box!

If you’ve followed any of the press for 50/50, you know two things:

– This is a funny movie about Cancer.
– There haven’t really been funny movies about Cancer before.

These are both true. But they might imply that this is a black comedy, or at least an unconventional one. But this last point could not be further from the truth – for all its thematic uniqueness, 50/50 is about as straight-laced a movie as it can be. With an even temper consistant in the tamest kind of Dramedies you find in a cineplex, this is a movie that breaks zero taboos. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

“Oh, hi de ho officer. We’ve had a doozy of a day. There we were, minding our own business, just doing some chores around the house when kids starting killing themselves all over my property.”

You’ve seen this story before, but never quite like this. A group of college kids on a road trip run into a couple of unsavory types in the back woods and terror and mayhem ensue. So what makes Tucker & Dale vs. Evil so different? The script by Morgan Jurgenson and Eli Craig turns the overused premise sideways and provides one of the craziest movies of the year.

So the 90s were about sex, grrrl power, and being selfish? Sounds about like I remember them.




After providing an engaging first series centered around a troubled genius detective with a mean-streak and a penchant for breaking the rules Luther returns for another season on BBC America.

Very cool. Created by Mark Pallan & Amanda Speva with sound mixture by Erik Rasmussen.



Written and directed by Bevan Walsh, “Love Does Grow on Trees” was named one of the top five shorts at the Tribeca Film Festival by New York Magazine. The short film is a coming of age story of a teenage boy who discovers “adult magazines, girls and the embarrassment that goes with both.”

The two audio tracks aren’t combined as well as I’d like on this parody but I do applaud the absurdist sentiment of mashing together Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker’s duel from Revenge of the Sith with Corbin Bleu‘s “Push It to the Limit” (which oddly enough lintly was humming just yesterday).

Ashley Tisdale, Leah Remini, and the folks from Funny or Die give us a “where are they now” look at a child beauty queen who still hasn’t moved on.
