Fork it. Fork it hard.

As I’ve previously mentioned, The Dark Knight Rises is filming in Pittsburgh.  Now, however, some new information has come to light: according to The Daily Bhaskar, filming will also take place in Jodhpur, India.  So… what exactly does that mean for the movie?

Hopefully this will happen at some point.  I'm sure they could work it in.

By now, you've no doubt witnessed the atrocities that are the X-Men: First Class posters.  There’s been quite a few of them, the best of which are slightly less than mediocre.  The worst, on the other hand, are mind-blowingly awful – specifically the ones where Magneto and Professor X have their faces photoshopped onto their respective crotches for some reason.  You can see those little treasures here, though for your sake I suggest you don’t look at them for too long, in order to avoid any negative side effects.  Like projectile vomiting or spontaneous combustion.  Seriously, my grandmother could have done better.  And she’s dead.  Anyway, a new poster was released the other day, and while it’s not as bad as the crotch-face ones, it still sucks.  So, in order to heal your now-scalded retinas, I’ve rounded up some of the best fan-made posters from around the web.  

Here's the new official poster.  It's pretty shitty.

If you’re like me, then you’re a huge fan of Atlus’ Persona series, and are eagerly awaiting Persona 5.  Unfortunately, the wait for Persona 5 is going to be a long one, seeing as it was only confirmed a month ago.  Luckily, Atlus is releasing another game this summer, and it looks like it’s at least somewhat similar to the Persona series.  The game, Catherine appears to be a kind of trippy, sexed-up, mindfuck of a survival-horror game, with some puzzle and adventure elements tossed in for good measure.  In other words, it’s gonna be some weird shit.

Just quick update on a recent rumor that’s been making the rounds:

For some time, one of the more popular ideas about The Dark Knight Rises was that Robin Williams would be playing Dr. Hugo Strange, a creepy-looking bald scientist dude. Then I think the story switched to Tom Hardy playing him or something weird like that. Anyway, these rumors have long since been dismissed as complete bullshit, but now it seems they're back for another round.
Told you he was creepy.

Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, is one of my all-time favorite books. If you haven’t read it already, do so. I insist. You won’t regret it. If you have read it, then you are certainly aware of its awesomeness. Good for you. Anyway, us fans have been taunted for some time with infuriatingly inconsistent rumors of a movie, and it finally looks like we may actually get something. But it’s not a movie – it’s a TV miniseries. As Neil Gaiman recently said on his blog, Good Omens is to be adapted by Terry Jones (of Monty Python fame - oh, and he also wrote the screenplay for Labyrinth) into a 4-part miniseries. Finally! I don’t care if it’s not a movie. Just so long as it doesn’t suck. There’s absolutely nothing worse than a wonderful book being adapted into a horrible movie (or TV miniseries). This sounds like it's gonna be good, though. Anyway, in light of this glorious news, I decided to have some fun and create my ideal cast for a Good Omens movie/miniseries/whatever.

Oh, and another note: I tried to keep the cast as British as possible (seeing as Britishness is an essential part of the book), which was much harder than expected, which is why a large amount of my cast was stolen from Doctor Who and Harry Potter. I apologize in advance.

As you’ve no doubt noticed, superhero movies are all the rage right now. Studios have also noticed this, and are churning out film after film featuring all sorts of tight-wearing do-gooders, often without bothering to give any consideration to the quality of the film. I, for one, do not wish to pay to see these shitty movies, and I’m guessing I’m not the only one. So, in order to separate the good from the considerably less good, I’m going to watch the trailers for several upcoming superhero films, and guesstimate how much I would like them based on said trailers. Oh, and I’m also going to guess what their Rotten Tomatoes scores will be, mainly so that I can feel all good about myself if I get them right. Although, I’ll probably get them completely wrong, so maybe not…

As it turns out, Christopher Nolan has pulled another fast one on us. That’s just how he is, that tricky bastard. But then, I guess that’s why we love him. Anyway, barely a day after I posted my Dark Knight Rises update, I found myself browsing the web, only to discover that Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s roles in the film have both been revealed. Needless to say, they aren’t what anyone expected…

Christopher Nolan planning his next round of mind-fuckery.

Lately there’s been quite a lot of information flying around the internet about The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s third (and seemingly final) Batman movie. Very little news has actually been officially confirmed as of yet, but rumors of all sorts have been making the rounds, so of them stranger than others. Being a huge fan of the Nolan Batman movies (and Nolan movies in general, for that matter), I took it upon myself to do a little research on the film and see what I could find. Anyway, my goal here is to attempt to sort through as much information as I can, hopefully separating fact from rumor as I go (which is easier said than done, I might add).

Gaga can't get a break. Every song she releases a new song it's labeled a copy of something else. Whether it be "Don't Turn Around" for "Alejandro", or "Resepct Yourself" for "Born This Way", it's inevitable. Now with her newest single "Judas", released on April 15th, 2011, people are starting to say Gaga's copied someone else... herself. Calling "Judas" a sequel to "Bad Romance", however, is pretty much spot on. The songs are similar in a lot of ways, but does that make "Judas" a failure? Probably not. To show the similarities, both songs have chants that consist of name dropping herself, both are lyrically about falling in love with the wrong guy. And both show Gaga at her finest.

I finally got around to watching the original True Grit (1969) last night. It was interesting to see how it compared to the version that came out last year, and is a good movie in its own right. And while I can't say for sure whether I liked the 1969 version or the 2010 version, I do know one thing for sure.

Kim Darby looks exactly like Justin Bieber.

Everyone has heard "Poker Face", "Bad Romance", and, most recently, "Born This Way". But there's a side to the pop diva Lady Gaga that few have discovered. Even though she exploded onto the music scene just a couple years ago, Lady Gaga (or Stefani Germanotta) has been making songs for over five years. And some of the early songs rival, even surpass, her most popular songs. There are a lot of rare Lady Gaga tracks, including some amazing demos. Here are the best Lady Gaga songs you’ve never heard.

"You did not just telephone me bitch!"
