Why Has Optimus Prime Died So Many Times?

Optimus Prime has died more than 25 times in the last 30 years across comics, cartoons, movies, and video-games. In fact it’s to the point where it not only has become a running joke among Transformer fans, but it’s even been joked about in the comics themselves. Megatron said it best in “Other Voices, Part 2” with the quote “Oh, you Optimuses do love to sacrifice yourselves, don’t you?” So what’s the reason for this? Why do they keep killing off Optimus Prime? Here are some possible reasons according to the Transformers Wikia: It allows for him to be

Second Trailer for 'The Boss Baby' Featuring the Voice of Alec Baldwin

"Mom, Dad! The baby can talk!" DreamWorks Animation has released a second full-length trailer for their next animated comedy, titled The Boss Baby, made by the same director as the Madagascar series and Mastermind. The first trailer introduced us to the "Boss Baby", an adorable baby voiced by Alec Baldwin who carries a briefcase and harbors a malicious desire to put an end to ever-so-cute Puppy Co. Other voices in this are Miles Bahski, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire, and Steve Buscemi. This looks fun, and they're obviously selling the sibling rivalry and cuteness above all else, I just hope there's something more to this. Maybe the story of them becoming friends is the core emotion. Check it out below. Here's the second official trailer for DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby, direct from YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for The Boss Baby here, to

The Best Movies of 2016, According to IndieWire Critic Eric Kohn

The Best Movies of 2016, According to IndieWire Critic Eric Kohn
Every December it bears repeating: Anyone who thinks this was a bad year for movies simply hasn’t seen enough. In an age of binge-viewing, a preponderance of must-see premium cable shows and, hell, even smartphone apps that command far more attention most feature-length achievements, the true range of quality cinema is often obscured by the noise of an ever-cluttered media landscape. To really assess the state of modern movies, one look beyond the obvious. Sure, it was a weak year for movies that stand out mainly due to star power and sizable marketing budgets, but those options represent only a small fraction of the marketplace.

The film festival circuit provides an ideal alternative to conventional channels for discovering movies worth talking about all year long — and, if they’re lucky enough to land distribution, they quality for year-end celebration on lists like this one. This year, every single finalist

Emily Whitten’s New York Comic Con 2016 Round-Up!

  • Comicmix
New York Comic Con has once again rushed by in a giant, fun, crazy blur, and although I didn’t get to nearly all the things I was hoping to, I did have a rockin’ time and see some really cool things I can share.

The first of these were a few great panels I landed seats for, including, as is my tradition, the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel. If you don’t know I love the current Tmnt, then what are you, new here? But seriously, I love it. And each panel I have gone to brings something new and different.

This panel (with Andrea Romano (voice director), Eric Bauza (Tiger Claw), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Shredder), Greg Cipes (Mikey), Rob Paulsen (Donnie), and Ciro Nieli (Executive Producer)) was particularly fun, because one of the things they did was a live read of episode #420, “The Super Shredder,” which

Alec Baldwin Voices a Cute Baby in Animated 'The Boss Baby' Trailer

"Fine, I can talk. Now let's see if you can listen." DreamWorks Animation has released the first teaser trailer for their next new comedy movie, titled The Boss Baby, from the director of the Madagascar series and Mastermind. Alec Baldwin voices the adorable little baby, seriously called just "Baby" in the film, who is a suit-wearing briefcase-carrying kid that teams up with his seven-year old brother to stop the dastardly plot of the CEO of Puppy Co. Other voices include Miles Bahski, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire, and Steve Buscemi. This teaser makes it look like there is quite a bit of tension between the baby and his brother, but it seems like they'll probably end up friends by the end. What do you make of this? Here's the first official trailer for DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby, direct from YouTube: He wears a suit, speaks with the

‘You’re the Worst’ Recap: Edgar’s Terrible Day Anchors a Great Episode

‘You’re the Worst’ Recap: Edgar’s Terrible Day Anchors a Great Episode
Do not read on unless you’ve seen “Twenty-Two,” Wednesday’s episode of Fxx’s “You’re the Worst.” And if you haven’t the episode (or the show), rectify that situation as soon as you can.

I laughed out loud several times during “Twenty-Two,” which is one of many compliments this spectacular episode deserves. “You’re the Worst,” which was renewed today, never tires of showcasing the inherent absurdity of life, and it has characters that are custom-made to shine a spotlight on the idiotic and sympathetic things friends are capable of, as well as the impulsive and contradictory life choices of alleged adults. On this show, those choices range from admirable to amusingly deranged, and yet tonally, “You’re the Worst” is never confused about what it is or what it’s going for. It’s one of TV’s most reliable pleasures — but part of its appeal is its willingness to take chances, as

Film Review: ‘Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle’

Film Review: ‘Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle’
Those looking for a straightforward concert film may be thrown by Maurice Linnane’s BBC documentary “Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle.” Certainly the songstress, who died in 2011, is shown in top form during this 2006 appearance, delivering soulful renditions of “Back to Black” and other standouts for the delectation of some 80 souls in the small church of an Irish fishing village. But much of the documentary is concerned with placing the artist and the playdate in context, and exploring what made Winehouse’s performance in Dingle so special. At just under an hour, the film seems best suited to fest and tube play.

Striking panoramas of a remote seaside town at the edge of the world are interspersed with explanations of how Dingle’s Other Voices festival became such an illustrious televised musical platform. The pastor of St. James’ Church, program officials and bass guitarist Dale Davis, one

Review: The Terminator

  • Comicmix
In 1984, The Terminator was a relatively low budget ($6.5 million) action-adventure film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, hot off Conan and Linda Hamilton pre-Beauty and the Beast. Written by James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd, it was a fun little science fiction film of a potential future that needed to be avoided. Things blew up and Arnold stoically told a cop and the audience, “I’ll be back.” No one knew at the time that the film would trigger such an enthusiastic response, giving us sequels, comics, novels, and a television series. Suddenly, SkyNet, John Conner, Sarah Conner and the Terminator T-800 model would become a part of the social fabric of pop culture. It also got Cameron sued by Harlan Ellison, who successfully argued that the story lifted a lot from the classic “Soldier” story penned for The Outer Limits. Little wonder then, that when Blu-ray discs started showing up, it

Fox orders animated comedy about inept cops
Fox has ordered 13 episodes of a new animated comedy dubbed Murder Police, which the net says follows a “dedicated, but inept detective and his colleagues – some perverted, some corrupt, some just plain lazy – in a twisted city precinct.” The series from David A. Goodman (Family Guy) and Jason Ruiz will bow sometime during the 2013-14 season.

“David and Jason came to us with a really fresh take on law enforcement that we’ve never seen before,” said Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly in a statement. “With Murder Police, these guys are taking a staple genre of television – the cop show

Blu-ray Review: Awesome 5-Disc Set For ‘Terminator Anthology’

  • HollywoodChicago.com
Chicago – It’s incredibly easy to make jokes about the 3rd and 4th subpar films in the “Terminator Anthology” but that’s missing the point. Yes, the series goes downhill a bit after the amazing “T2” and slides even further in the pretty awful McG finale but collectors don’t care. This is a set, exclusive to Best Buy and the WB Online Shop, for true collectors, those of you who get excited for nifty packaging and the ability to hold a whole series in your hands. It’s a great box set even if not all four movies could correctly be called “great.”

Rating: 4.5/5.0

The first two undeniably could. James Cameron’s “The Terminator” and “T2: Judgment Day” are two of the most influential and entertaining sci-fi films of all time. They are timeless. “Rise of the Machines” has moments that work but it’s creatively a step down,
