CAPTAIN AMERICA’S TO-DO LIST
Here’s a screenshot from Captain America: The Winter Soldier showing Cap’s to-do list. Poor dude. Frozen for nearly 70 years, there’s a lot he has to catch up on like Thai food, educating himself on the ups and downs of the Berlin wall, and apparently he’s unsure about Rocky II.  At least he got Star Wars out of the way.
Sheesh, Steve! You should put buy a smartphone on that list because there’s totally an app for keeping track of all that stuff. Christ, you could knock that list out in a few days ON a smartphone!

Seven of the Best Film Themed Slot Machines
American poet and philosopher, Henry David Thoreau once said, “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” Nothing seems to emphasise the concept of art being all around us quite like the idea of theme based slot machines. With online gambling sites like jackpotjoy Bingo, we find endless examples of fantastically themed slots, although the true art can be found outside of the web, with the ‘read deal’ slot machines. Film themed slots are personally my favourite, deeper analyzing how creators have transformed a film and its complex ideas into a gambling machine is rather interesting. Here are seven of my favourite film themed slot machines.

The Hangover

With this film taking place in Las Vegas, and with many scenes inside of a casino, The Hangover is an obvious choice for a film based slot machine. In case the symbols, which include a baby, tiger, bloody tooth, liquor and Alan’s infamous man-bag are not enough, the main voiceover that hosts the game is none other than the hilarious Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong). What’s not to love?

Star Wars

With one of the greatest followings of movie history, this Star Wars themed slot has three base games that correspond with the three original movies, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. With a large number of images and sounds from the films, this will have any Star Wars fan hooked.

Star Trek

Another film with a massive following, these slots see symbols of iconic characters, such as Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, as well as the legendary Enterprise. Keeping it old-school with sounds and images, the Trekkies are in for a treat.

The Lord of the Rings

Based on Peter Jackson’s movie adaption of Tolkien’s epic book series, this machine takes you on an adventure through Middle Earth, with the breathtaking official soundtrack to keep you company. ‘The Balrog’, ‘Isildur’s Sword’ and ‘Gandalf’s Fireworks’ are only a few of the fantastic bonuses players can choose from.

Indiana Jones

When the iconic Indiana Jones theme song begins to play, everyone in the casino knows that some brave soul has just begun an adventure of wit and bravery. Outsmart the booby-trap-ridden machine, and you’ll be leaving heavy pocketed.

Ghostbusters

Who you gonna call? Slimer? If you are able to ignore the sarcastic teasing and mocking of Slimer, the ghost that leads players through the game, you are definitely in for a treat. With additional graphics, sound effects and the ever-popular theme song, you’ll be a regular ghost buster after your first spin. 

Willy Wonka

Based on the 1971 classic, this slot bring Roald Dahl’s magical chocolate factory to life. With the perfect amount of adventure, theatrics and whimsical characters, this slot will leave you wanting more… chocolate!

MAGIC: THE GATHERING IS GETTING A MOVIE
It was bound to happen. 20th Century Fox scooped up the rights to Hasbro's trading card game Magic: The Gathering. The studio wants to turn it into a big franchise like Lord of the Rings which sounds awesome. The bad news? They’re getting Simon Kinberg to help bring it to life. Let’s just hope it’s not as awful as another beloved franchise that he brought to life on the silver screen: Fantastic Four.
I’m actually a huge MTG fan and, yes, I even follow the lore. While I’d much rather see a Game of Thrones-esque TV series, I’ll gladly settle for a movie. The lore isn’t anything mindblowing to begin with, so there’s definitely room to improve upon the foundations for a film franchise.

HOW MANY TIMES WOULD HARRY AND MARV HAVE DIED IN THE ‘HOME ALONE' MOVIES?
I always wondered this, even as a kid. Sure, I’d seen hundreds of boulders, anvils, safes, pianos and more dropped on Wile E. Coyote’s head in cartoons, but I still wince when that iron drops on Marv’s head in Home Alone. And then there was the scene in Home Alone 2 where Kevin is chucking bricks at Marv’s skull from a rooftop and I always thought he’d be dead as shit in real life.
Screen Junkies got a doctor to diagnose every injury sustained by the Wet Bandits across both Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York and the final conclusion is further proof that they just don’t make kid flicks like they used to.

This Fan Spent Two Years Re-editing The Dark Crystal And HOLY SH!T

As if the 1982 Jim Henson & Frank Oz fantasy wasn’t creepy enough, scoodidabop went and re-edited the whole thing. This fanmade director’s cut is meant to more closely resemble Henson and Oz’s original vision for the film.

From the scoodidabop:

Early versions of The Dark Crystal were a bit different than the version we see today. Jim Henson and Frank Oz originally sought to create a much darker story that relied more on the audience and less on voice-overs and inner monologues explaining the plot. In this version there’s no narrator, Jen’s inner monologues are gone, and the Skeksis hardly ever say anything in English (Aughra speaks some Skesis too!). This version is much more modern and a little darker with this original audio and the slightly different score. Some of the scenes are moved around too, which adds to the surreal feel of the original film. Some test audiences were more casual moviegoers and responded negatively to this version so the Henson team redubbed the ENTIRE film to help explain the plot to the audience up front and make things more obvious.

The whole thing is currently available in its entirety on YouTube, so be sure to check it out before the copyright lawyers swoop in. Also check out the Menta Floss interview with the mad genius behind this creepy cut.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer

Rhino, Electro, Green Goblin. Tween romance. Wowza. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2014.

This Star Wars Sweater Looks Like An Amusement Park on Shrooms
Check this Star Wars sweater from Rage On, available this upcoming January for the cold winter. It totally looks like a trippy version of a cheap Star Wars amusement park or a Windows 95 screensaver that went batshit insane when it loaded. It’s available for pre-order from the company, and it doesn’t say if it’s officially licensed or not (I’m guessing no), so you might want to take that into consideration if you’re already set on grabbing this crazy sweater.

Guys, This ‘47 Ronin’ Flick Looks Crazy Fun

Okay, I’m a sucker for high fantasy action — especially when it’s infused with Asian influences. Keanu Reeves will whip out those kung-fu skills he downloaded from The Matrix when 47 Ronin hits theaters this Christmas. And look! Rick Genese a.k.a. Zombie Boy makes an appearance!

Here’s A Teaser Trailer For The Teaser Trailer Of Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Trailers for trailers are stupid, but we’re posting ‘em anyway because the Marvel cinematic universe is just plain rad and Black Widow’s new hair-do is super sexy. Not as sexy as those curls in Iron Man 2, but still pretty damn sexy.

The REAL teaser trailer debuts tomorrow. We’ll keep you posted on any developments regarding Black Widow’s hair in the meantime.

'Zero Charisma': One Nerd Movie To Rule Them All [TRAILER]
A group of Dungeons & Dragons players invite a charismatic hipster into their playgroup, but something about him rubs their Dungeon Master the wrong way.
[[MORE]]

Official synopsis:

As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother’s kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip—along with everything else in his life—when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm.

Zero Charisma hits iTunes October 8 and theaters October 11.

First Robocop Reboot Trailer

I love Robocop and I love the character Robocop. I love everything about its liberal fascist agenda and I love the insane amount of criticisms the original had. It’s so…80’s action.

So this reboot trailer is kind of a mix of feelings for me. It looks really cool, honestly, and the new look of Robocop is very sleek. It seems to have strayed away from a lot of the ridiculousness of his original death as well, giving more of a look inside of Alex Murphy’s family life. But hey, we get Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, and Michael Keaton, so I really don’t know what to expect with such an awesome cast. Expect this film to drop in the first quarter of 2014.
