Splatoon 2 Review

18 July 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As odd as this may sound, I keep having to remind myself that the original Splatoon came out only two years ago, as I often find myself thinking it originally released long before May 2015. Of course, this misunderstanding can be chalked up to the less-than-stellar Wii U lifecycle. Like many, I enjoyed Splatoon during its opening months, but I often found myself focusing on other games (or more accurately, other consoles), and before long, I had gone months without so much as looking at my Wii U, and by extension, Splatoon.

And frankly, that’s a real shame. Even with a lack of proper online profiles and voice chat, Nintendo created something special when they rolled out their unique take on third-person shooters, and until Blizzard released Overwatch last year, I can’t think of many games that kept me amused and addicted as Splatoon managed to. It came as »

Emmy Nominations: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises

13 July 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With more than 400 television shows to choose from and only a handful of ballot slots per category, the 21,000-plus voting members of the TV Academy had no choice but to leave quite a few strong contenders off the 2017 Emmy ballots. However, with such a plethora of worthy candidates, there were also quite a few pleasant surprises along the way. Now that the official nominations have been announced, Variety breaks down the biggest snubs and surprises of this small-screen award season.

Snub: Oprah Winfrey

You may have thought the Academy could never snub Winfrey — voters just spot her name on the ballot, and even if they haven’t seen her in the role for which she’s nominated, they’ll usually still give her the nod. But this year that proved not to be true, as Winfrey was overlooked for limited series “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.”

Surprise: “Westworld” ties with “Saturday Night Live” for the most »

The Top 5 Uses of Zz Top Songs in Movies

5 July 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

You know when their sound hits that you can’t resist tapping your foot and getting into the music. In films Zz Top is just as addictive. It’s easy to see considering that they’ve had such a prolific career and have seen their songs used for TV and film alike. There was even an episode where one of them was linked to a King of the Hill character through family. Their unique sound is infectious in a way that makes a person want to sing, dance, and just have a good time in general. 5. Evan Almighty – Sharp Dressed Man

Rome – Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody will be feted by the Locarno Film Festival with its Leopard Club Award for lifetime achievement.

Brody is expected to make the trek to the prominent Swiss fest dedicated to indie and cutting-edge fare, where his tribute will include an Aug. 4 screening of Roman Polanski’s “The Pianist,” for which Brody won the Academy Award for best actor in 2003, in the lakeside town’s 8,000-seat Piazza Grande. There will also be a public conversation with the actor.

“Brody gained a lasting place in the collective imagination of the movie-going public when he played composer Wladyslaw Szpilman in ‘The Pianist’ (2002), and has since demonstrated his status as one of the most versatile of actors, appreciated by filmmakers in Hollywood and beyond,” the festival said in a statement. Brody won the Oscar when he was 29 years old.

He made his acting debut as a teenager in Francis Ford Coppola’s “New York Stories” (1989) and »

The Top Five Exterminators in Movies

14 June 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

As much as I fear insects, and the thought of giant ones or a swarm makes my skin crawl, I love movies where it’s the humans against nature in the form of giant bugs. Who didn’t shudder during “Mimic” or “The Swarm”. My husband who once worked as an exterminator says the field is full of odd personalities. This makes sense as you take a somewhat normal person, expose them daily to toxic chemicals while crawling under houses and you get a man or woman on a mission to as Dale Gribble from King of the Hill says “Kill the

That’s why even writers rooted in live-action series, like Dan Harmon and Bill Lawrence, have found themselves dabbling in the animated world.

Video Game Review – Farpoint

26 May 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaun Munro reviews Farpoint…

Impulse Gear’s much-anticipated Vr shooter Farpoint has been touted as something of a killer app for the Psvr, which though swimming in dozens of titles and “experiences”, has served up few certifiable must-have Aaa games so far, the most high-profile being the magnificent Resident Evil 7.

Though Capcom’s terrifying Vr jaunt remains King of the hill, Farpoint does benefit hugely from its not-so-secret weapon – literally – with the marvelous Aim controller substantially elevating an otherwise boilerplate space shooter that most players likely wouldn’t touch were it merely a 2D game with a conventional control scheme.

One of the game’s most alluring boasts is the promise of a full-fat Vr campaign, which places players in the shoes of a shuttle pilot who, following an accident involving a space anomaly, ends up stranded on an alien planet and must battle through a fleet of murderous creatures »

Howard Stern Favorite Reveals Secret Cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

8 May 2017 1:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Richard Christy shared his never-ending excitement on the Howard Stern Show this morning about his cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Anyone that has ever listened to the Stern show in the last 20 years is familiar with the loveable Richard Christy and even his raccoon eating dad (don't tell Rocket). Christy and his annoying partner in crime, Sal "the Turtle" Governale are often the highlight of the Stern show, going to any length imaginable to get a laugh out of their grumpy boss Howard Stern, usually with a phony phone call. While most know Christy for his comedy and drumming skills, he's also been spreading his talented wings into the world of acting.

On Friday afternoon Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn Tweeted that he is a fan of the Stern show and particularly Christy. Here's what he had to say.

In Praise of 'Daria': 20 Years Later

12 April 2017 6:59 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This year marks 20 years since the debut of Daria, the MTV series about a bespectacled, combat boot-wearing misfit whose defining trait was, on the surface, a deep disdain for those around her. In the years since viewers were first introduced to Daria Morgendorffer, she's become a heroine of sorts for many who saw (or still see) themselves as outsiders – particularly women – for whom mainstream depictions of non-traditional characters were, at the time, few and far between. (Cher from Clueless and the Spice Girls weren't exactly relatable if you were a weird girl in the 1990s. »
