10 Male Actors In Drag Who Will Sexually Confuse You

11 hours ago

Buena Vista Pictures

It’s pretty easy to spot a man in drag. That’s probably because they don’t impersonate females: they wear eight-inch heels, wigs the size of a small planet, and dresses so tight they stop blood circulating. How many women do you see walking round town like that?

We’re not saying that the actors in this list could pull it off as full-on females in the public eye (although a few of them definitely could), what we’re saying is that they defy all logic in terms of how we perceive male and female: they mix them both and look absolutely ravishing in doing so. Who can deny that Rocky Horror’s Frank-n-Furter didn’t give you rude thoughts, even if they made you uneasy? Yes, that goes for men and women. There’s something about the crazy, overt sexuality of these guys that make »

10 Best Superkicks In WWE History

11 hours ago

WWE.com

For decades upon decades, the signature manoeuvre has been a vital part of any pro wrestler’s arsenal, arguably just as important as any other aspect of a performer’s character.

And while these signature moves are often just that—something distinctive and unique to a certain gimmick—the sheer longevity of pro wrestling means that there have naturally been cases of duplication.

Spinebusters, Powerbombs and DDTs are all prime examples of moves that are no longer exclusive to one particular wrestler. But there is perhaps no move that has been replicated more often than the simple yet effective Superkick.

A clear adaptation from the side kick of taekwondo, we’ve seen the Superkick employed by all sorts of wrestlers from the Japanese, Mexican and American styles, showing just how versatile the attack is.

But of all these talents who have chosen the Superkick as a staple part of their moveset, »

10 Movies You Can’t Stop Watching When They Come On TV

12 hours ago

DreamWorks Pictures

We’ve all been there. You’re channel surfing and notice a movie you love is on, but it’s already halfway through. Oh well, you’ll watch it for a five minutes until something else is on… and the next thing you know it’s an hour later and you’ve watched it through to the end. Well that was a fun half-experience.

It may feel a little outdated in a world of digital downloads, online streaming, DVDs, Blu-Rays and Ultra-Violet, but there’s a plethora of films available for free every day aired on television. Unless you’ve got TiVo or the ability to plan ahead, however, this requires you to be in the right place at the right time, something increasingly difficult in our on-demand lifestyle. Normally you’ll find yourself stuck forever watching movies minus their opening twenty minutes.

This isn’t necessarily a »

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Final Fantasy VII

13 hours ago

Squaresoft

To this day, opinion remains divided on Final Fantasy VII. Many believe it to be one of the greatest games of all time while others view it as overrated and distinctly average overall. Whatever your personal opinion, nobody can deny the effect Final Fantasy VII had on gaming itself. It broke down the barriers that had previously prevented Japanese Role-Playing Games from being successful outside of Asia and brought a bunch of new innovations (mostly technical) to the genre for the first time.

The game’s story is a particular highlight too. On the surface, it’s full of Jrpg cliches but underneath, there’s some darker themes working. This is a game that explores the psyche of its characters and brings their flaws and inner problems to the fore on a regular basis. Many characters are searching for answers to their own identities while journeying the world; the »

10 Video Games That Should’ve Quit While They Were Ahead

13 hours ago

Sony

Ignoring the countless design and interaction elements at play, one of the more unique aspects of video game franchises is their tendency to improve over time. Turn to book or movie series’ and more often than not, there is a general apprehension among fans – concern that future instalments will not equal the first. More of the story may be told sure, but viewer bias tells us the sequels lack that initial hook – and so our opinion of them drops, almost always favouring that first experience.

But things are different with games. Largely thanks to their compartmentalised nature – each instalment usually standing on its own two feet rather than directly relying on its predecessors – games are expected to and typically do improve with age.

Assassin’s Creed IV for example is a greatly refined, polished and distinctly pirate-y form of the repetitive and messy affairs of original character Altair. The »

12 Most Ridiculously Overpowered Video Game Characters

15 hours ago

Konami

The entire point of playing video games is to be able to do things that you never could in real life, be it taking on a horde of aliens on a distant planet or fighting off zombies on this one. A common thread throughout games like these is to make the player feel like a total bada**, and awesome though this is, some games arguably take it too far by overpowering the player character to the point where it’s the equivalent of watching a 90s-era Steven Seagal movie: it’s fun, but also made to look way too easy.

Sure, cutting through the enemies like a knife through butter can be fun to a point, but there’s a fine line between being too easy and too difficult that most games struggle to discover. On the other hand, some games go totally the opposite way and present enemy characters who are ridiculously overpowered, »

10 Most Ruthless Serial Killers In Video Games

15 hours ago

Human Entertainment

As weird as it might sound, don’t you just love a good serial killer storyline?

It’s part of the reason shows like CSI and Criminal Minds managed to explode to incredibly high ratings and reviews only a few years ago, and they’ve continued to keep their fervent fanbases that love piecing together all the clues and pieces of evidence along with the cast.

In games it’s pretty hard to get this sort of thing right, as for the vast majority of players aren’t secret agents or detectives, so it falls to the developers to flag things a mile off, or make it fairly obvious what needs to be put together to implicate who. The newest – and very much underrated – Sherlock Holmes title Crimes and Punishments ended up giving players ‘Sherlock Vision’ to make sure elements in the surrounding world stood out enough to be noticed, »

Marvel Civil War: 21 Predictions For Who Will Side With Who

15 hours ago

Marvel Comics

The recent news that Robert Downey, Jr. is set to appear in Captain America 3 has led people to believe that a Civil War movie is on the horizon.

Whether or not Captain America 3 will actually be that movie is still open to debate, but it’s more than likely that it will merely plant the seeds for a much more grand event – perhaps played out over the course of several movies – in the future.

In the comic books, Civil War is a storyline that revolves around the enforcement of an initiative known as the Superhuman Registration Act.

After a war between the rookie heroes known as the New Warriors and the villain Nitro, Nitro exploded, seemingly killing the entire team and a huge number of civilians (including sixty school children nearby). The United States government were compelled to designate all superheroes and villains as “Living Weapons »

12 Creepiest Video Game Easter Eggs

15 hours ago

Sony Online Entertainment

Oh sure, you could spend this Halloween watching the same old “scary” films. Chances are you’ll probably just end up getting really frustrated, yelling as the screen and angry that the idiots who keep splitting into groups, walking backwards into rooms and having pre-marital sex are. Clearly you’re going to get yourself killed, you moron! That would never happen if you were in that position. That’s what makes playing horror games way more fun. That way you can actually see how you’d fare in those situation – and, usually, it’s not a whole lot better.

Much like horror films, though, a degree of familiarity will kill of any sense of dread. Comfort is the enemy of terror. There are people out there – almost all of whom record Let’s Play videos – who can waltz through the latest Amnesia, or Alien Isolation, without a care in the world. »

20 Hilarious Pornstar Twitter Accounts You Need To Follow

15 hours ago

Twitter @toychloe

Going through puberty in the early 1990s and becoming interested in the opposite sex meant that if you wanted to look at porn, you either had to borrow a well used VHS from a friend or rummage through roadside bushes looking for discarded porno mags. When you did find a few stuck together pages, it was like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and you immediately ran home to lock yourself in your bedroom for an hour.

Things are of course very different now. With the explosion in internet porn, you have the freedom to access all the the pornograhy you wish with a few clicks in a search engine. And while some debate the pros and cons of this unprecedented access to porn, an off shoot consequence is that the internet has turned some pornstars into celebrities in their own right. Visit any »

Avengers 2: 10 Things You Need To Know About New Characters

15 hours ago

Marvel Studios

The trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron was leaked a week before it was supposed to premiere, and by now we’ve all had a chance to get our expectations built up for the return of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to the big screen. One thing we’ve known for a while is this is the introduction of several new characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

First, there’s obviously Ultron, the robotic villain of the film. Then there are the superhuman twins, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Also Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker, who as we saw in the post-credits sequence of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is somewhat involved with Hydra and conducting experiments on Loki’s staff from the first film.

We’ve also got Paul Bettany, who previously provided the voice for Jarvis, the artificial intelligence that helps Tony Stark run his Iron Man armor and his house. »

10 Movies That Terrify You (But Definitely Shouldn’t)

16 hours ago

youtube.com

Remember this guy? You and an entire generation no doubt carry his face deep in your subconscious as the man who warned you that the video you were about to watch might contain “sexy scenes”. Despite the fact we’ve now wholly developed into full-fledged adults, that part still makes us giggle like schoolchildren.

Though he did have an important message – preventing parents from allowing their children to see potentially troublesome issues at a young age – he didn’t honestly tell us everything about a PG movie. It’s fair to say the Video Standards Council were a set of absolute sadists; popping all-age classifications on some of the most disturbing films in history. Well guess what, Vsc? You won! We’re all scarred for life at some of the deeply unsettling “kids” movies deemed safe for viewing in years gone by.

10 Awesome Movies You Won’t Believe Got A Rotten Rating On RottenTomatoes

16 hours ago

Warner Bros. Pictures/Roadshow Entertainment

On the internet people want their information quick and easy to digest, hence why RottenTomatoes has become on of the definitive film review websites. An essential bookmark for any film fanatic, they take all the major reviews for every movie and provide a succinct summary and rating out of 100, making figuring out whether a film is good or not easier than ever before.

RottenTomatoes compiles its Tomatometer scores in a rather simplistic way that gives a nice and understandable output. A review is either marked as good or bad (as a rule, 1 and 2 stars is bad, 3 to 5 is good) and these scores are aggregated, with the percentage representing the amount of critics who liked the film. There’s no way it can be misread.

Well, most of the time. Like any algorithm it’s not without its problems. Unlike Metacritic the opinions aren’t weighted, »

50 Greatest Movie Posters Of All Time

16 hours ago

Paramount Pictures

If there’s one piece of a movie’s marketing that’s vital to bringing in the masses, it’s the poster. Unlike a trailer, the poster has just one shot at attracting the eye and interest of a potential viewer – and is usually the first port of call when entering the theatre or, in this day and age, the IMDb page.

While some posters fail miserably to represent the many layers of a feature film and show little to no artistic merit, others do such a blindingly good job that the film doesn’t even have to be any good. Many lacklustre movies owe their hefty box-office profits to a well designed poster by a more talented artist.

The beautifully hand-drawn efforts of the 1950’s B-Movies are prime examples that using nothing but a sheet of paper and a pencil, the movies can really come alive before »

20 Tragically Unexpected Truths You Learn In Your Twenties

16 hours ago

Twentieth Century Fox

Everybody ages, but hitting your twenties can be something of a rude awakening. Lost forever are the teenage years we all wished away, when turning 18 was basically the holy grail, and gone too are the days of being a student, and with them the incessant mid-week parties, late night library sessions and misconceived ideas of responsibility.

When you’re in your twenties, things have the ethereal quality of seemingly staying the same, but actually changing massively. People expect more from you, you begin to expect more from you, and there comes — to quote The Simpsons — a sudden realisation of great truth. The magic transition we’re to undergo from adolescence to adulthood is in fact, a lie.

As doe-eyed children, we all believed that adults just knew stuff. After all, they were adults, right? In a crisis they’d have the answers, and if they didn’t, »

10 Problems Only Sunderland Fans Will Understand

16 hours ago

Stefan Rousseau/Pa Archive/Press Association Images

“And it’s Sunderland, Sunderland Afc! / We’re by Far the greatest team, the world has ever seen”, or so the chant goes. Of course it isn’t factually correct, but that’s not the point of the song. It’s about pride and devotion, even in the face of overwhelming odds. If there’s one thing it means to be a Sunderland fan, it’s being able to take a kicking and come out the other side with your support intact. It’s a mental struggle with which the Black Cats have provided plenty of practice for over the years.

It sometimes seems as though no club is more finely tuned to infuriating its supporters, consistently promising so much and failing to deliver in the most spectacular of fashions. Quite often, the privilege of feeling such a genuine connection to a football »

11 People Who Probably Most Hated Alan Shearer

17 hours ago

Owen Humphreys/Pa Archive

Former Newcastle captain, walking hero and all round working class hero Alan Shearer can probably go to bed happy every night that he will forever be beloved in Newcastle, and is assured of adoration even despite helping relegate the club. He is untouchable, having scored a frightening number of goals for the club, and more importantly giving everything to the cause every game, and looking double-hard along the way, but for a lot of people who don’t see through black and white eyes, he’s the most hated man in football.

For Sunderland fans, Shearer is Darth Vader – the personification of everything wrong about Newcastle United and their fans – and for far more other football figures and fans, he’s something of a pantomime villain, but one who always got away with his crimes. That’s probably why Aston Villa fans were so happy to see Newcastle relegated under him, »

8 WWE Hell In A Cell 2014 Results Predictions

17 hours ago

wwe.com

WWE’s Hell In A Cell event will take place this weekend on October 26th from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. With WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar not booked for the show, we instead get a double main event – John Cena vs Randy Orton, and Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins. These two cell matches are worthy substitutes for the show not having the WWE title. We are particularly excited for Ambrose vs Rollins which will be a feud ender and promises to deliver a potential match of the year. As for Orton and Cena, they at least carry the stipulation of the winner getting a future title match with Lesnar. That makes this stale match-up feel that little bit more interesting.

The rest of the card looks fairly decent as well. Dolph Ziggler vs Cesaro in a two out of three falls match for the »

7 Hell In A Cell Statistics You Need To Know

17 hours ago

wwe.com

This Sunday, WWE will hold its sixth Hell in a Cell PPV, with two singles matches scheduled to be held inside the Hell in a Cell: Dean Ambrose versus Seth Rollins, and the always-fresh John Cena versus Randy Orton. They will be the 29th and 30th matches inside the cell since its inception in 1997.

Hell in a Cell is like a cage match on steroids. Much like the cage match was in the 70s and 80s, the cell is designed to be an ending point for feuds. Often times, we’ll see a title match end in a disqualification due to constant outside interference, or a competitor repeatedly running away from an opponent, necessitating the cell to keep the two wrestlers in – and others out.

But that’s not always the case with cell matches. Sometimes they are booked oddly, or lately matches are just placed inside the »

Newcastle: Is 10th Place Out Of Pardew’s Reach Already?

19 hours ago

Martin Rickett/Pa Wire/Press Association Images

Despite some silliness where he claimed he thought his newly rebuild side could challenge for the Champions League, Alan Pardew said this summer that he would be “happy” with 48 points this season – a single point less than Newcastle managed last season. Now, even that looks like it might be out of his reach.

At this point last season, Newcastle had 11 points, having won three games and drawn two, and having already played Man City and Liverpool (suggesting that the overall picture of the opponents so far had been tougher than what we’ve faced this term). From there, despite the loss to Sunderland, Newcastle won 7 of their next 10 games, including victories over Chelsea, Spurs and Man Utd, before the wheels came off against Arsenal, with the points gained from that point onwards numbering just 16.

So far, the suggestion that the team are dead »
