'Idiocracy' is everyone's favorite movie about a dystopian future in which everyone has become really, really stupid. The movie's writer, Etan Cohen, seems dissapointed in how close he seems to have hit the mark.

'Idiocracy' is a cultural touchstone that everyone likes to use to point to how ridiculous modern life has become. Even Terry Crews (AKA President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho) used the premise to poke fun at the current election cycle.

Future President Camacho is right guys, can't we all just crack open a Brawndo and chill?

The long awaited Deadpool has finally been released and who better to review it than the internet's favorite grandmother, Betty White. Sure, it's already gotten a 'certified fresh' rating from Rotten Tomatoes but what does she think of it?

Betty White loves it, she gave it four Golden Girls... FOUR! And to parents petitioning for a PG-13 version of Deadpool well, don't bother, she says it's fun for the whole family. And we're not taking that out of context at all...

The 'Internet of Things' is a phrase people keep bringing up that references the real life trend toward a world where all your things have become working props in a science fiction movie. Kind of like this:



Let's be honest, so far this neat idea has mostly translated into putting a touchscreen on everything. That's why Max Braun got crafty and made his own futuristic mirror using Google's Android system. So far it automatically shows the weather, the time and the day's headlines but he hopes to include more.  He's also made a diagram showing what makes the mirror tick.

Mystery surrounds the nature of the new Power Rangers reboot but it probably won't be very similar to the well recieved "gritty" NSFW short unauthorized reboot everyone was talking about last year. 

Star Wars Sound Editor Reveals The Details Behind Those "Additional Voices"

Matthew Wood, supervising sound editor for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has just written a long, detailed list of the voices in the background of the latest Star Wars movie. He writes:

Part of Skywalker Sound’s and John Williams’ job is to complement the visuals ofStar Wars and enhance the storytelling with a rich audio soundtrack. Just as our sound designers have to create sound effects for new weapons, vehicles, and ambiences, the dialogue department will turn to voice actors to populate these new worlds. And so it was with The Force Awakens.

You may have seen a section in the credits of The Force Awakens titled “Additional Voices,” with some familiar names listed. But who or what did all those familiar names play? I’m happy to finally reveal everyone below, running through the film chronologically.

It seems like a thankless job that is pretty important to making the world of the movie seem real. Notable examples of voice contributions include:

“BLAH!” — Matthew Wood and David Acord

“Blast ‘em!” — Matthew Wood

Stormtrooper (fights Finn with riot baton): “Traitor!” (fight efforts) — David Acord

“Hey!” — David Collins

“Ma’am.” — Meredith Salenger

“Hey!” — Nigel Godrich

Very distorted commands — Devon Libran and Sam Witwer

And of course, the Kevin Smith cameo you've probably heard about by now:

Stormtrooper (reacts to incoming Resistance fighters): “We have incoming at 28.6! Move!” — Kevin Smith

Production assistants who worked on blockbuster films such as 'The Wolf of Wallstreet' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' who were in charge of parking are now suing Paramount Pictures and other associated production companies. 

The suit claims that they were not allowed to leave their assigned locations, which led them to start keeping "bottles and buckets" in their vehicles for any inevitable bathroom breaks. 

On top of that, they claim that in cold weather they had to leave their cars running continuously but were never compensated for it.  And they had to work 60-100 hours a week regularily while being paid a flat rate of $150 a day without overtime. They were also not given food on set during their 12-hour-on-average days. 

The suit is an attempt by the PAs to get compensation for such poor working conditions.

In light of the massive success of Star Wars VII, Disney has moved the release date of Star Wars VIII from late May 2017 to December 15, 2017.  They released a statement explaining their logic and providing some facts on the record breaking success of the seventh Star Wars movie. 

The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861.3 million and the third biggest global release ever with $1.886.7 billion.

This film is about a woman who is kidnapped by a survivalist who claims he saved her life and forces her to stay with him in his survival bunker. It was originally going to be called 'Valencia' but it was all a trick! 

The twist here is that the creepy survivalist kidnapper totally did save her life because this is the SEQUEL TO CLOVERFIELD. Actually, according to Collider, J.J. Abrams has called it more of a "blood relative" than a direct sequel.  

The movie is still going to be directed by Dan Trachenburg who got a lot of attention in the past for his short film based on the video game Portal.

By Grabthar's Hammer what a devastating loss. Esteemed British Actor Alan Rickman has passed away at 69 after a battle with cancer.


Rickman was known by many for his exceptional portrayal of the complex and conflicted villain Severus Snape in the films adapted from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books.


But real-talk the strapping lad could make most anything epic.


From his acclaimed role as criminal mastermind Hans Gruber in Die Hard:


To that time when director, Kevin Smith, recognized he'd happened upon a British stud who had a voice deeper and richer than a Ghirardelli 98% Dark Chocolate bar. Yeah the voice of a god. Literally:


To what was one of his arguably best roles as Colonel Brandon in Ang Lee's 'Sense and Sensibility':


Throughout his career Rickman continually demonstrated an awe-inspiring range, while at the same time establishing himself as something of a legendary 'bad guy.' Let's get real though, his bit in Galaxy Quest — the epic sci-fi romp — kind of takes the cake.


RIP Alan Rickman, you'll be fiercely missed.

Even the snobbiest film buff is liable to break down into tears at the beginning of UP but it turns out that there's a lot more to Pixar movies for a cinephile to appreciate. This short video shows, shot for shot, how many sneaky references to classic films are packed into these kids movies. Some are easier to spot than others, you probably had no idea watching Toy Story for the first time that this scene was a reference to Total Recall but an adult who's seen Total Recall may have noticed it:



On the other hand, who could have guess how many references Finding Nemo would make to Kramer vs Kramer:

Yup. As fate would see fit, it just so happens you've only scratched the surface of highly refined, impressively customizable, Netflix-binge-a-thon experience.

Netflix usually operates with a user-navigation system configured such that you can search for shows and/or movies by titles or common genres--Romance, Action & Adventure. Thing is, there's a hidden way to work around this.

The URL for something simple as 'Documentaries" is http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839; but by changing the numerical segment at the end the URL you can discover 'Controversial Foreign Movies' (2273) and a whole mess of other uber specialized genres.

This little Netflix hack opens up a world of possibilities, and all cheesy slogans aside, there's about to be something for everyone looking to kick back and check out with this clutch streaming service.
