From Cracked

If all movies followed the same physical laws as the real world, they wouldn’t be a lot of fun — we don’t want action heroes to break their legs every time they jump off a bridge and into the top of a speeding truck, we want them to roll over painlessly and continue with the chase scene (or, alternatively, to explode for no reason).

However, once you’ve established the rules of your movie universe, the only thing we ask is that you follow those rules. Don’t say that your time traveling robot unicorn is powered by ice cream in one scene and blowjobs in the next. That’s just sloppy writing.

From Cracked

Every movie is a balancing act between making the villain interesting and making them so compelling that we start rooting for them to kill the good guy so that they have an excuse to say something awesome (see The Dark Knight and basically every cinematic depiction of the Joker). We asked you to show us the deleted scenes from great movies that would have tipped the balance too far in favor of the villain.

Another Cracked Photosplasty brings another compilation of awesome images.  This week’s topic: 20 Plot twists no one saw coming.  What this essentially means is that this gallery is a compilation of things that don’t actually happened in movies but would’ve been completely awesome anyways.  Tom Hanks reprises quite the large number of appearances in this list, so enjoy.

Summed up in a series of pictures, this list from Cracked sums up what gaming in the near to far future will entail for us. From holographic homework decoys to an Xbox seducing your significant other (if it hasn’t already for you ladies out there), this article has it all. An interesting series of images to say the least, with a few recognizable jabs at certain online communities such as the all too familiar XBL rage message, detailing how one incredibly angry player wishes to do unmentionable things to your mother or making fun of you for having no life. Either way, you win. Check out the images from the source below!

W. Rowntree and Cracked.com has once again come up with this amazing webcomic about the absurdity behind superhero reboots.  I love the justification descriptions behind each one and they truly represent how ridiculous reboots and revamps are becoming.  That being said, the new Spiderman is completely unnecessary and the only reason I might see it is because Emma Stone is A-Mah-Zing.

Cracked has this annoying tendency to make some of the BEST photoshop contests that attract some of them most clever participants.  And when I mean annoying, I mean awesome.  The premise is simple.  Take a serious drama, action movie, etc. and put the slightest hint of cliche rom-com elements, and you’ve got an amazing new poster for a new movie I’d definitely watch.  I’ve compiled here some of my favorites, but definitely hit the entire gallery here if you want/need more.
