I'm going for it: I think this is going to be brilliant. In the past I've thought it sounded like a solid egg of fuck, but this trailer turned me round. Add to that Josh Trank's "body horror", Cronenberg inspiration, Philip Glass doing the soundtrack and - frankly - a great cast and I'm - much to my own surprise -… » 1/27/15 6:30am Tuesday 6:30am

Randall Munroe's excellent site What If? takes on ridiculous hypothetical questions and answers them in a clear, concise and hilarious way. The one I've linked too (the first, actually) is "Relativistic Baseball", which concerns itself with what would happen should a baseball hit speeds of 99% of light. I found it a… » 1/21/15 7:26am 1/21/15 7:26am

I don't think they'll go for Kryptonite - considering Man of Steel, I would assume that Batman will somehow discover that simulating a Kryptonian atmosphere brings Superman down to a human/mortal level (as opposed to Krypton's Sun). That's the only way I can see them going toe-to-toe in an even match. » 1/21/15 6:19am 1/21/15 6:19am

I'm really disappointed in the nominations this year. No Lego Movie. No Life Itself for Best Doc. I know it was a long shot but I really hoped Essie Davis would get nominated for Best Actress. No Ava DuVernay or Jennifer Kent for Best Director. No David Oyelowo or Jake Gyllenhaal for Best Actor. No Birdman for Best… » 1/15/15 8:12am 1/15/15 8:12am

I totally agree. I'm an ardent Nintendo fan and I am usually quick to defend them, but the exclusion of an AC adapter just doesn't make any sense. Sure, it'll increase the cost of the overall package, but I can't imagine that the difference between the two packages would be enough to put off fans like myself or new… » 1/15/15 8:05am 1/15/15 8:05am

This is the one that's freaking me out the most. The others are giving me that "gaze into the abyss and the abyss gazes into you" look, but this one... he's looking over my shoulder. There's something behind me. It's probably him. Don't turn around, Dan. Don't turn ar- » 1/14/15 3:41pm 1/14/15 3:41pm

When I was 8 (ish), I won tickets to go and see The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers live in Birmingham, here in the UK. It was, and pretty much remains, the most impressive thing I've ever won. When the day finally came for me and the family to take the 100 mile trip down there, the BBC weather service warned that a… » 1/14/15 3:36pm 1/14/15 3:36pm
