Blightyvision: “The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff”

Written by Mark Evans Directed by Ben Fuller Starring Robert Webb, Katherine Parkinson, Stephen Fry, and Tim McInnerny I’m pretty sure this blog’s demographic has, overall, read enough of the work of Charles Dickens to see the common threads that run through his stories.  That many encounters with nutty names and stark Victorian poverty do […]

Trailer Watch: The Pig with the Froggy Tattoo

In case the title isn’t obvious? This is another absolutely wonderful parody trailer for The Muppets. Including a fantastic original song. If these trailers are any indication, The Muppets is going to be one of the funniest, most clever films of the year. And they’re certainly building anticipation wonderfully.

Trailer Watch: The Muppets, Red Bands for 30 Minutes or Less and Conan the Barbarian and more

I’m a diehard Muppets fan and if the movie turns out to be half as clever as its marketing, I’ll be seeing this in theaters more than once. Check out the trailer and the synopsis below. On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, […]

Lincoln’s Video of the Day: The Assassination of Yogi Bear by the coward Boo Boo

Yogi Bear opens on Friday and well….it doesn’t look very good. This short, however, a parody of the film as well as The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, is pretty fantastic.

Trisha’s Link of the Day: Well played, Rob Liefeld

When I was a nascent comics fan in the mid-1990s, one of the most important things I learned about the art was that Rob Liefeld can’t draw feet.
