‘Suicide Squad’ Is The Most Mature Superhero Movie This 13 Year Old Has Ever Seen

suicide-squad

Finally! A superhero movie that captures the darkness, insanity and violence I’ve always wanted to see in a superhero movie. Hi. It’s Nas from 2001 here, and I gotta tell you that I am psyched to see The Joker sport some grills, even though I don’t know what those are because RiFF RaFF hasn’t even been invented yet. And is that a serious, angelic choir cover of a song by The Bee Gees? Why yes, yes it is. That is an incredible idea. I wish they got a punk band to cover it instead though. That would have made this trailer for me.

Thanks To This Video, We Don’t Need Another Star Wars Trailer, Ever

Thanks To This Video, We Don’t Need Another Star Wars Trailer, Ever

Star Wars may have been the first franchise to ever inspire immense cynicism from me. I loved it growing up, but watching the prequels and seeing all the energy people put into making something that just didn’t work made me want to forget those stories set in a galaxy far, far away had ever happened.

More Like Batman V Superman’s Parents, Right?

You’ve already seen it. We know you’ve already seen it. It’s been the biggest deal on the internet this weekend: Warner Bros debuted the full trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice aka Superman 2: Batman Is So Much Cooler Than Superman, bro. And I must say, ridiculous wig on Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor aside, I think it looks quite fun.

The New Steve Jobs Movie Looks Better Than The Last Steve Jobs Movie

The New Steve Jobs Movie Looks Better Than The Last Steve Jobs Movie

Here’s how much of a bad idea JOBS, the previous Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher was: it was almost called iJOBS. It’s like the producers knew it would be read as an accidental comedy no matter what they tried to do. The new Steve Jobs biopic, appropriately titled Steve Jobs, seems to be making every effort to avoid that same problem.

‘Ex Machina’ Has As Much To Say About Men And Women As It Does A.I.

‘Ex Machina’ Has As Much To Say About Men And Women As It Does A.I.

It’s been another solid blockbuster season at the movies. Mad Max: Fury Road managed to be the rare thought-provoking action movie, Jurassic World seems to have reignited everyone’s inner 10-year-old and, even though it ultimately felt like the year’s least interesting offering, I enjoyed the odd lighter beats in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

‘Dragon Blade’ looks like a ton of historical fun

‘Dragon Blade’ looks like a ton of historical fun

I mean “historical” fun, of course. There’s no other way to accurately describe John Cusack playing Roman general Lucius n a historical epic about war with the Han dynasty along the fabled Silk Road. Adrien Brody and Jackie Chan star alongside Cusack as rival Roman general Tiberius and Han dynasty commander Huo An.

John Oliver Says The Internet Sucks For Women

John Oliver Says The Internet Sucks For Women

Enjoying your time on The Internet today? Me too. You know who isn’t? Anybody being dismissed for having an opinion or worse, threatened with rape and murder because of the genitals they inherited through what seems to be genetic fluke. If you can’t figure out why this is in any way disturbing or problematic (I know you’re out there), maybe you should watch John Oliver explain the deep, dark corners of The Internet.

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are back in ‘Daddy’s Home’

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are back in ‘Daddy’s Home’

The second I hear the word “daddy” I picture The Rock. Dwayne Johnson has managed to train an almost Pavlovian response into me, and because we’re talking about The Rock, the second I think about him I start grinning. This post has nothing to do with The Rock though. It’s just about a movie called Daddy’s Home (there he is again) that reunites The Other Guys stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg after five years of both started doing kinda shitty movies despite their general awesomeness.

Listen To Our ‘Shamanic Bad Times’ Playlist

Listen To Our ‘Shamanic Bad Times’ Playlist

It’s a good day for a playlist that’s all commiserations for the bad times. Last week’s list offered a selection of pretty contemporary stuff that I have in heavy rotation right now – some Kendrick Lamar, Jamie xx, Unknown Mortal Orchestra. That’s the stuff that keeps me engaged during a daily routine that involves staring into a computer screen from a chair all day.

Foals Tease Newer, Angrier Foals

Foals Tease Newer, Angrier Foals

Maybe you saw FOALS when they came down to South Africa last year. Maybe you didn’t. Whatever. They’ve released this short video that implies we’re about to get new FOALS. And it looks like it’s going to be a lot more of that newer, angrier FOALS that was lurking beneath the surface of much of their last album, Holy Fire

Pac-Man Invades Hong Kong, Is The Actual Flavour Of The Day

Pac-Man Invades Hong Kong, Is The Actual Flavour Of The Day

It’s been a grueling 24 hours in the adult world, folks. I want out. I want back to the simpler, kinder days when all I had to do was consume, drop e, party and eat ghosts. No wait, that’s Pac-Man. I’m always getting myself confused with famous 1980s gaming icons.
