There's an official DC Superhero book that's been published and it includes more than 600 of the most hilariously awful jokes that you've ever seen. How bad you ask? We'll you'll just have to read some of the preview pages below to find out. I understand that the book is for kids, but even kids shouldn't be subject to such terrible humor.
Filled with more than 600 jokes inspired by beloved DC Comics characters and classic art, The Official DC Super Hero Joke Book is sure to provide hours of entertainment for kids ages 8 and up—and for adults who never grew out of liking a solid knock-knock or one-liner.
“When I was a kid, I loved the Super Powers action figure line from Kenner,” said author Noah Smith. “I joined the fan club they promoted and received the first and only newsletter for the club. It included a few jokes, some of which I still remember today—there was the classic about Flatman and Ribbon and one about the Penguin being on a ‘see-food’ diet. Those jokes meant a lot to me way back when, and it’s a nice thought that some kid might get as much of a kick out of the jokes in this book.”
If you want to order a book of bad DC superhero jokes, you can buy it here for $8.47.
It appears someone in the universe has decided to remake Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Yes. The Musical. You know, the one with Donny Osmond and all the songs. Well, apparently Elton John thought it was a good idea so here we are. To make matters better (worse?) it is planned to be an animated film. It was announced at CinemaCon 2017 on Tuesday by Adam Fogelson, chairman of STX's Motion Picture group. The production company known for such great works as The Gift and Secret in Their Eyes. And I'm not even trying to be facetious. They only started in 2015, so their slate of movies is very little.
For those who are completely ignorant of the musical, it is about Joseph, from the bible, who got a colorful coat because he was best boy of his family, and his brothers got in a hissy and sold him to slavers. The slavers slaved him, he worked for a dude who's wife tried to hit on him, got sent to jail, because the dude's wife made up lies about him, like ho's do, and then gets famous by being able to interpret the Pharaoh's dream about farming and agriculture saving the future. And it's a musical with a bunch of musical kind of songs. So now you know.
Look, I'm a guy who likes musicals, and I'm not afraid to admit it. I don't even mind Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.... that much. But if there is one thing I have a hard time coming round on, it's animated bible movies. Especially, animated bible musicals. I just have had too many bad experiences. Maybe it was because my mom made me watch them too much as a child, and I'm sorry, the Bible just isn't as interesting as Animaniacs.
Now, I trust Elton John, because he knows good music, and it is also be worked on by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber who will be writing some new songs for the Musical. It should be known that Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote the music to the original Joseph musical in the late 1960's, as well as Phantom of the Opera. Only time will tell if this will be any good. More news perhaps about this movie as information is released.
Here's a cool video that examines a popular trope in action films, and how it's making action films worse the longer that it is used. I don't really like the name "The Protagonist Throw" as it's not exclusive to characters good or bad, but I do agree with most everything else he says about the trope and how it is overused for the wrong reasons nowadays. Hear what he has to say in the video below and share your thoughts below.
These are officially licensed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 inspired jackets representing Star-Lord and Gamora. I'd totally wear that Star-Lord jacket casually outside of cosplay. These are just slick looking Jackets and they are currently available for pre-order here for about $100. I think I'm going to have to buy myself that Star-Lord jacket or talk my wife into buying it for me.
"When I look at the present direction of our space program, I feel kind of disappointed."
The first trailer has been released for the inspiring documentary about the space race and how things in the space program has changed since the 1960s. The film is called Fight for Space and it takes us through the time where space exploration was fueled by beating the Russians, and how JFK pushed NASA to get us to the moon. It also goes into how things have changed since then and discusses why we stopped pushing space exploration, which is really sad!
I grew up with NASA in my life. I freakin' loved NASA! I was so into it that when I was a kid I helped build a space shuttle cockpit in our classroom and that thing was legit! I could've had fun spending all day in that thing playing around imagining what it would be like to be an astronaut. gUnfortunatley the space program isn't what it used to be. Anyway, if you are a big NASA geek like I am, you're gonna want to watch this documentary. Made my next website venture should be NASATyrant!
Fight for Space explores the past, present, and future state of the US Space Program, while making the argument that the exploration of space brings economic and cultural benefits to the nation. This film probes why and how the space program came adrift, will examine our current plans and asks, why don't we have a more ambitious space program and what steps can be taken to fix it?
Fight for Space hits select theaters starting on May 19th.
If you're a fan of Disney's classic 90s animated series Gargoyles, you're gonna love and appreciate this extremely cool cosplay of Goliath. The costume was created by a cosplayer who goes by the name of Knightmage and he shared it with Geeks Are Sexy. Gargoyles charactersare a cosplay that I've rarely seen. I've never seen it in person at a convention, but we have posted one other Goliath cosplay with Demona in the past, which you can check out here.
Seeing Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen) on the big screen together in Logan was a real treat for fans. It was so awesome watching them fight along side each other and watch their relationship grow throughout the course of the film.
If you aren't a hardcore X-Men fan, there might be a few things that you don't know about the X-23 character. Thanks to Looper we have a great video for you to watch that breaks down some little-known details about the character and the actress who played her.
After 17 years, two of the most recognizable X-Men in the movie world — Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Patrick Stewart's Professor Charles Xavier — have given their final bows as their beloved characters. Logan may be the most dystopian X-film, but it also represents a new beginning, introducing a brand new character — Laura Kinney — played by Dafne Keen. But what do we know about this fresh mutant hero and the young actress who portrays her?
