Hitfix came up with this awesome list about 20 movies we’ve been waiting on.  Whether they be sequels of old movies or ones that the director has been always interested in making, it’s all here.  Some of them are even planned and in production as you read this!  I’m already excited for the Arrested Development movie!  Apparently the first episode title of Arrested Development has been leaked.  It’s nothing spectacular being titled: Arrested Development: Michael, but it proves it’s in production!  I can’t get excited enough for such a thing.  Check out this movie and the rest of the stuff below by clicking the link.

Last Tuesday, I gave a maintenance update regarding the state of the blog and what we have in store, and I kinda felt as though we should do that every week!  I like keeping you guys updated with how I’m doing and some of the personal feelings I have towards this blog sometimes.  I’d like for you guys to think that this blog is more than just me posting a lot of cool stuff I find, and that it’s about discussing/geeking out about how much I love popular culture.  Reaching out to you guys almost seems meta.  So like many other scheduled events on this blog, Tuesday Maintenance Letters will try to be a thing these days.  There’s always something I want to be doing for this blog, so I think sharing with you guys what I do will not only tighten our cyber bond, but also make you notice all the effort I put into things that aren’t necessarily obvious XD.

List of Scheduled Events

Monday

Some plot holes are never really covered.  Some plot motivations do not cover the ramifications that happen.  Bruce Almighty  pulled the moon closer so he could get laid.  Cracked covers a small section of that movie where the tv shows news flash about flash floods.  Nice one God.  Below is 4 more movies with plot holes as big as Jennifer Aniston’s augmented assets that Bruce created.

M. Night Shyamalan used to be the master of the movie twist.  Everyone knows what happens in the Sixth Sense and I thought Unbreakable was pretty good.  But Complex has compiled 50 of the best twists.  And while I’m sure M. Night Shyamalan has left his mark, that just means there’s 40 more movies out there that are either better or just as good as his old stuff.  There will be no discussion of how he destroyed Avatar: The Last Airbender.  Bah-doy-doy, spoilers ahead, so only visit if you think you’re bold enough to have watched the best movies with spoilers.  I’m not so bold, but I couldn’t pass the opportunity to test the ambitious.

This is a really colorful image that pitches Aang, the master of the four elements [as stated in the popular Nickelodeon series Avatar: the Last Airbender] against the master of the periodic table of elements, Dmitri Mendeleev. It’s quite hilarious in the way when science and popular culture clashes. In truth, only nerds, engineers, and geeks will truly understand this. And since I fall under all three of those categories, this tickles me greatly.

Scarjo has clearly made the first step as the sexy lady for this summer’s movie as she played the spandex wearing Black Widow.  But of course there many other movies this summer that feature women in exploitive outfits and explosions.  Kate Beckinsale in Total Recall, Emma Stone in The Amazing Spiderman, and Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises.  Head over to Next Movie to get a list of this summer’s hottest stars.

Avengers have officially kicked off the big summer movie bonanza.  There’s a lot of great stuff coming out this summer, and a lot of questions to go with it.  Can The Dark Knight Rises truly surprise us?  What’s the surprise bomb of the summer [this one might be already answered: looking at you Battleship]?  Regardless, Hit Flix has compiled some interesting questions such as those and compiled opinions on them.  Click the link below.

Unreality aka the most inspiring website for this blog has had some very awesome and original articles.  This one features good director cuts [specifically not extended] that feature much more sensical plots that are much better than the theatrical cuts.  Be sure to visit at the link below.

Cracked Photoplasy strikes again with another clever way to put a spin on movies.  This is a galllery of 25 images with clever photoshopping to make any movie significantly cooler.  You’ll see here a range of movies from kids to adults that heavily involve cross culture and penis jokes.

Cracked has broken down 6 friendships in movies that don’t make sense when it comes to why some people develop alliances.  Sure the movie has given some very explicit reasoning as to why two people would work together, but Cracked writers have broken down how their decision was actually rash or faulty.  Check it out below.

Some people do some pretty amazing stuff in Movies that have to do with some sort of extensive tech expertise.  The ATM jacking scene in Terminator 2: Judgement Day, the universal TV public access in V for Vendetta, there are a ton out there.  But more than often, you’d think of this kind of thing to be only in the TV and movies.  But Cracked has compiled some instances in where these crazy hacks happen in real life.  One crazy hack thing I recall was in Die Hard with a Vengeance where they were remote exploding people from their computers and apparently we can’t do this.  Oh well, probably for the best.

Movie Hacks that Actually Exist

A long time ago, I wrote a very long article concerning my favorite comedy: Tropic Thunder.  It wasn’t soon after I published that article did I think of my favorite movies from other dramas.  It’s difficult to narrow them down, but I eventually settled on action movies.  I thought hard about which action movie is very much worth calling, ‘the best’.  But when you really come down to it, the most influential and generally awesome action movie of all time is “Die Hard”.  Almost every person can relate to the lovable John McClane, the idea of one man vs. a dozen is well displayed here, and the outside help elements are film staples we see in just about every action film these days.  It doesn’t take a movie critic or a film education to realize how elements from this movie have influenced the industry today, and I’ll try my best to break it down for you all.  But first, a summary.

John McClane, a New York police cop, is heading west to join his separated wife for Christmas and their children.  His wife is in the middle of a corporate Christmas party after a celebrated project wrap up, so he must make his way to the building itself.  Admist meeting her and her fellow co-workers, the building is suddenly taken hostage while John narrowly escapes.  In a game of cat and mouse between John McClane and the terrorists, led my Hans Gruber, he must shoot, trick, and explode his way back to his wife with the help of a local cop and a young limo driver.

College Humor enlisted Dan Markowitz from Defectivity.com to draw a neat schematic as to why you’d be bleeding according to movie cliche’s.  While none are overly insightful, you gotta appreciate the art and semi-witty statements that accompany it.  Above is the first half, in support of College Humor, I’ll link you to the second half.

As of late, Banana Feed has been having serious leak issues.  Such as articles getting posted at random times that aren’t completed, days of complete lack of articles, or a general lack of enthusiasm in posts.  This is largely because of finals and other stressful times.  But as summer approaches, I plan on bringing Banana Feed to 100%.  And as I finally have a well paid internship this summer, we’ll be making some serious time and financial implementations [as far as getting our own domain!].  Mind you that Banana Feed is not exactly 100% as my bookmarks folder was accidentally deleted so I lost about 90% of what I had bookmarked lol.  So now I’m trying to transition into a new era.  Please bear with us as we try and organize our lives and this site.  In my case it’s the same thing.

Today’s morning link revolves around a topic that I’d like to someday cover regarding the conundrum I have multiple times: Whether to rewatch an classic vs. experience something new.  There are obviously pros and cons to both.  Den of Geek has graciously outlined the argument with a redeemer that there is no right answer.

If you’re going to satirize the rerelease of an old movie as 3D you might as well make it as absurd as possible.  And that’s what Pistol Shrimps, a Youtube account that heavily satirized the Lord of the Rings which I celebrated here.  They completely make fun of the rerelease as well as the styles of other directors like JJ Abrams and Michael Bay.  The video is well made and fairly hilarious, so be sure to check it out.

Nearly a month ago, I posted some real life renderings of Disney Princesses.  They were beautiful representations of some of the most memorable heroines in Disney movies.  A friend came to me afterwards asking for where Cinderella and Snow White and Tiana were.  I was surely puzzled because the artist had bothered to draw obscure Princesses like Meg and even Ursula.  So I did a little digging and found out that I haven’t shared the entire set yet.  So here’s the rest of them.  I realized I didn’t give credit to an artist, so let me fix that mistake here: http://jirkavinse.wordpress.com/  The  rest are down below.

It might be out of taste because it’s totally so last year, but it doesn’t change the fact I stumbled into this amazingly well done RPG representation of one of the best dramas on television.  It beat out Game of Thrones last year in my opinion, and with filming occurring this year for it’s final season, it’s the only reason why Game of Thrones will probably nab my favorite spot.  I’m off topic, so let me circle back.  Today I give you two different adaptations of a Breaking Bad Video Game.  The one above was done by Johnny Utah who’s taken the Street Fighter Route to tastefully include small jokes made throughout the entire series, and the one below follows a more Japanese/Korean style RPG made by College Humor.  Enjoy them both.

I’m personally not a late night host watcher, but I do appreciate some of the awesome things they accomplish.  In this video, Jimmy Kimmel seemed to assemble every A-lister known to the industry in this epic mashup called Movie: the Movie, where he pretty much makes fun of movie cliches.  The clip itself isn’t THAT hilarious, but more of a crazy achievement in putting this many A-listers into one video.  And as always: Kate Beckinsale is mighty fine.

Crack showers my morning links again with an oldie that takes on sequels that were imagined and eventually rejected.  Among them a sequel to Se7en called Ei8ht, a second Forrest Gump, and another Beetlejuice [which I think is actually still in the cards].  They talk about the potential sequel and also point out how wrong it would’ve been to do with each one.  Some of the stories simply don’t make sense, others are way over the top versions, and some even try to bring back characters that are clearly lightyears away or not even from the same world.  Well, as usual, Cracked writers have a whole mess of facts and sources that back their statements, and I highly recommend you check it out yourself.
