Spider-Man 3

Some may say that Spider-Man 3 was where the franchise went wrong. Of course since Sony rebooted it with The Amazing Spider-Man, it really hasn’t gotten any better. So as fans call for Sony to make a deal or just give the rights back to Marvel, Sam Raimi is finally admitting that Spider-Man 3 was awful, and if he were to make another Spider-Man film, he wouldn’t make “that movie.” But it doesn’t stop there, Raimi also talks about his most recent hit Oz the Great and Powerful.

The director stopped by Chris Hardick’s Nerdist podcast, where he opened up about some of the best and worst movies in his directing career. Hit the jump for more.

Horror movies were becoming one-dimensional and sequel-crazy. By mid-1984, three Halloweens, and four Friday the 13ths had come out. Then along came Freddy Krueger.

Freddy was different from all his horror icon predecessors. Whereas Michael Myers and Jason were silent masked stalkers, Freddy had personality. A child killer murdered in an act of town-coordinated vigilante justice, he unfortunately becomes a dream demon and stalks the children of his killers while they sleep. His grotesquely burned face left nothing to the imagination, and his ability to work within the dream world made him limitless as a killer and gave the filmmakers the freedom to go crazy with off-the-wall kills.

Comic Review: Star Trek/Planet of the Apes #1

Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive #1
Written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton

IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios
Release date: December 31, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Comics book publishers IDW Publishing and BOOM! Studios bring two fan-favorite franchises together for the first time in Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive, a 5-issue miniseries which sees the original Star Trek crew enter the world of the original Planet Of The Apes. While this crossover seems unlikely, this is Star Trek we’re talking about – Captain Kirk and crew manage to boldly go where no man has gone before and live to tell about it.

Star Trek/Planet Of The Apes #1 is mainly set-up for the collision of these two worlds in what largely feels like a typical Star Trek comic book story. Crew members in disguise beam to the surface for some quick reconnaissance, hasty retreat required; Spock ascertains just enough information from the data retrieved to make the daring Captain Kirk want to rush into uncharted territory to investigate; and there’s a whole Captain’s Log portion that gives you the background you need so that the action can begin.

New Poster For Adam Green’s ‘Digging Up The Marrow’
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Digging up the Marrow Header Image

An effectively creepy new poster has been released for Digging up the Marrow, the upcoming movie from Adam Green, writer and director of Hatchet, Frozen (no, not that one silly), and Hatchet II.

The movie has been on the way for a few years now, but hasn’t received much attention yet, which has been the intention. Green described the movie as an “art documentary” for a while, and despite a release fast approaching very little has been sent out to promote it including no trailer yet, creating a healthy dose of intriguing mystery around it.

What the movie is exactly is a bit tricky to explain, so I’ll let those behind its creation do it! You can check out the cool new poster for Digging up the Marrow, read more about it, AND watch a video of Green talking about the project and how it came to exist below.

Play-Doh Cake Playset Contains Penis-Shaped Tool; Parents Are Pissed
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset

As a child, I played with my share of Play-Doh, the wildly popular, colorful modeling clay used for both fun and education. As an adult, I’ve gifted a ton of the stuff to my hordes of godchildren, nieces, and nephews. These days, there’s all kinds of variations of the modeling compound with many accessories, playsets, and other tools to accompany it.

But, let’s talk about one of those tools – one that appeared to be more dildo than Play-Doh. Yes, that’s right, I said dildo, as an “extruder tool” that comes with the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset is, in fact, shaped like a penis. And when you squeeze the Play-Doh out of it to make the “icing,” well, you can imagine what that looks like, right?

‘Stranded Deep’ Trailer: Like ‘Cast Away’ In Video Game Form
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Stranded Deep Game

Everyone loves a good survival story—a story of someone going through the worst of the worst of experiences, becoming stranded, and having to figure out a way to survive as long as possible with whatever they have in hopes of eventually being found and rescued. One of the first things that jumps to mind when thinking of stories like this is the Tom Hanks movie Cast Away.

As video games continue to evolve, and as virtual reality finally starts becoming what we’ve always hoped it would be, games now can offer unique experiences for players, such as throwing them into one of these horrific survival situations…with far less horror than they would face in real life. One such game, titled Stranded Deep, looks very similar to a Cast Away situation, where players stranded on a deserted island will search/hunt for food, build a shelter, and try not to die.

A teaser trailer for the game, which comes from Beam Team Games, has been released, and can be seen below along with plenty of info on the game.
