Check out this awesome Birdman toy commercial

There's not really much to say other than this is a neat little ditty promoting Birdman's victory lap through some theaters after taking home the Best Picture Oscar. But it's just really, really neat. If you haven't yet, you should watch Big Birdman too.  "Smells like balls."

First official trailer for Ted 2 photo
First official trailer for Ted 2
by Nick Valdez

Ted was a nice surprise. Seth MacFarlane's passion project shined with all of the humor and heart that I would've never expected from the guy who brought us Family Guy. Then A Million Ways to Die in the West came along and well, now I'm not so sure what Ted 2 will bring. 

Now that we have our first trailer (playing during the Super Bowl on Sunday) for the sequel I'm not sure what to think. Although comedy sequels rarely turn out well, maybe this'll be that rare gem? I honestly laughed quite a bit, even if it steals that semen joke from Family Guy. But can a guy steal from himself? Ted 2 releases June 26th.

Ouija 2 is happening because money

It may not have been a good film, or even entertaining, but Ouija is going to get a sequel on top of its already bare bones story because it made near $85 million dollars from its slim $5 million dollar budget.  In an in...

Review: Ouija photo
Review: Ouija
by Nick Valdez

Ouija, read as "wee jah" and not "wee gee," is the latest in a line of films I can't believe exist. Movies are pretty much made from anything with a recognizable name now. I mean, we're in a post-Battleship world here people, so sky's the limit for potential money makers. What's next? An ultra dramatic adaptation of Operation? A super depressing Life? What about a science fiction take on Mouse Trap? 

But Ouija wants to avoid all of this by attempting to be a horror movie that just so happens to involve a certain toy...sort of like the million other films that feature the game. But the main question here is: Can Ouija mine horror tropes and go beyond its namesake to become a film capable of standing on its on two feet?

Not really, no.

My Little Ponies coming to the big screen

I have actually never watched an episode of the new My Little Ponies, but man are they popular. Like, scarily so. Who knows that it is. Well, I'm sure I could find plenty of fans who could tell me what it is, but that's not t...

NYCC: So... someone made "sexy" female Freddy vs. Jason figurines

You know what I've never once thought? "There should be female versions of Freddie Krueger and Jason Vorhees!" And even if I had, I certainly wouldn't have followed that thought with, "Let's put them in skimpy outfits and sex...

First trailer for Ouija, a movie someone thought was a good idea

I really, really can't believe this exists. You know how on some TV shows you'll see a joke about an intentionally bad trailer based on a random product? This is exactly like one of those. In the same vein as Battleship, Oui...

Here are images of Max Steel, a movie I just found out existed

To be honest, I only chose this story because it reminded me about that one episode of The Simpsons where Homer changed his name to Max Power (He's a man whose name you love to touch...but you mustn't touch), and any chance I...

Sony planning live action Barbie movie  photo
Sony planning live action Barbie movie
by Nick Valdez

Looking for the next Transformers or The LEGO Movie, Sony's search for the next big toy movie has brought it to Mattel's Barbie. Closing a partnership with Mattel, Sony hopes to start a franchise based on the children's popular toy starting with a live action comedy that'll reflect Barbie's more empowering qualities. With a script in the works from Jenny Bicks (The Big C), the film will take a young cast and "use [Barbie]'s personal and professional skills to step into the lives of others and improve them, almost like a modern day Mary Poppins."

Although Mattel has released thousands of Barbie animated films to home video, this is the first time something like this has gone down. I'm curious as to what will come of this. Sure the Barbie name has a few stigmas, but done the right way, we could get more of a Lisa Lionheart than a Malibu Stacy.

Review: The LEGO Movie photo
Review: The LEGO Movie
by Nick Valdez

Since its first delightful teaser over a year ago, I have been eagerly anticipating The LEGO Movie more so than any other movie releasing in 2014. I was instantly drawn to the idea of seeing the very Lego sets I played with as a kid (and still play with on occasion) recreated in a loving stop motion/CG film. I'm just not quite sure why I was so excited in the first place. Is it nostalgia or some kind of attempt to rekindle my lost childhood? Now that I've grown up, should I completely forget things that once made me happy in order to fit in with the professional world? 

Wait, am I really thinking about all of this? It's The LEGO Movie we're talking about here! Strange thing is, The LEGO Movie actually builds on these philosophical dilemmas in an intelligent, wacky, and surprisingly sophisticated manner. 

So yeah, everything is awesome.
