Other TV Shows That Could Take Place in Minnesota


Fargo made its debut on FX this week. It was a gripping premiere, full of plenty of the shenanigans we’ve come to love from the Coen catalogue. Having lived in Duluth, Minnesota briefly, I got a kick out of hearing locations like Bemidji and Duluth referred to regularly. Then on Twitter, I saw this banter between IndieWire editor Sam Adams and Daniel Fienberg of HitFix:

Naturally, this led me to wonder what other Minnesota-themed TV shows might be created. Continue reading

Quiz: Which Gravity Character Are You?

Facebook has infected the universe with quizzes. Which Geico caveman are you? Which 50s sitcom are you? Which character in Jabba’s palace are you? These are all a waste of time, because I’ve created the perfect quiz. It’s so much more meaningful than the others. Which character from the Oscar-nominated film Gravity are you? Now we’re getting somewhere. Find out after the jump. Continue reading

The Most Delightful Song About Slaughtering Zombies You’ll Ever Hear

Last night, I had the opportunity to check out Cockneys vs. Zombies (2012). The movie was a tad uneven, although it certainly has its successful moments as a horror-comedy. In fact, the song that plays over the ending credits works as a perfect totem animal for the film’s horror and comedy roots. It’s a delightful tune… about killing zombies. Check it out after the jump. Continue reading

Star Wars Lounge Music is a Thing That Exists

The other day while everyone else was working on a Monday and I was on a massive pub crawl because of a movie, one of our crawlers chimed in from the backseat. “I have a surprise for you,” he said to another crawler, probably, but my memory is understandably hazy for direct quotes. He then handed me a cassette tape, presumably dormant since 1999, and asked that I pop it in (yes, my Explorer has a tape deck… shut up). After determining that it was not a new mix tape (“I no longer possess the technological means to make mix tapes”), this is what played, resulting in several minutes of drunken laughter: Continue reading

Tale of the Tape: Wolverine vs. Freddy Krueger


The latest installment in Marvel’s Wolverine film series, The Wolverine, comes out later this week. With the film just around the corner, it’s only natural to wonder- is Wolverine the best movie character that wreaks havoc with claws? There’s really only one other contender, and he lives on Elm Street in Springwood, Ohio. Maybe a proper tale of the tape will help put it in perspective. Continue reading

Great Moments in Movie History (Using Stick Figures): Sharknado (2013)

Sharknado Fever gripped the nation last week. That is to say that an absurd amount of people were obsessed with a movie about a tornado full of sharks. It was the highest point in human history since the History Channel debuted The World Needs Ditch Digging Swamp Truckers or whatever. There’s already a SyFy sequel in the works. But for all of Sharknado‘s bluster, it didn’t really make it big until today, when it became a crappy MS Paint-style drawing with stick figures. I present to you Great Moments In Movie History Using Stick Figures: Sharknado. Continue reading

Great Moments in Movie History Using Stick Figures: The Avengers (2012)

Summer movie season is officially here. There have already been a few good releases, with many more still to come. Still, I’ll be shocked if I enjoy any of the popcorn movies this summer as much as I enjoyed The Avengers last summer. And that’s why I’ve chosen to memorialize it using stick figures. There are a lot of options for scenes, but there’s one that stands out in particular. Its magic was created with the use of two simple words. Continue reading

Poster Art: If Goodfellas was a Romantic Comedy


If there are two things I love, it’s Goodfellas (1990) and making fun of shitty romantic comedy clichés. Chief among the rom-com clichés is the poster art, which has five or six different templates to choose from. Just add two actors who have given up on awards and you’ve got yourself a rom-com poster. Here’s one version of how a Goodfellas poster could play out if it were a rom-com. Continue reading

Tale of the Tape: Bear Pit Fight Scenes


If you watch Game of Thrones, then you know that there was recently an epic scene involving a pit with a bear in it, a blonde, and a heroic idiot who risked his life to save her. In other words, it was just like that scene in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. For all of their similarities, there were a few differences. Which bear pit scene was better? Only through the magic of the tale of the tape can we find out. Continue reading
