Stranger Things Jean-Ralphio Theory

Netflix’s Stranger Things is exactly the kind of topsy-turvy sci-fi mystery that gives rise to endless fan theories big and small. In any corner of the internet where people are discussing Stranger Things — which seems to be every corner of the internet these days — you can find viewers arguing about what really happened to certain characters, how other characters are really related, or where all of this is really taking place.

But my favorite theory by far is “Jean-Ralphio Saperstein from Parks & Recreation is really the son of Steve Harrington from Stranger Things,” based on the remarkably astute observation that hey, these two idiots kind of look alike. And now we have definitive proof. Ben Schwartz, who played Jean-Ralphio, has “confirmed” that the two characters are in fact father and son, and even shared his thoughts on what Jean-Ralphio’s childhood might have been like. Some spoilers ahead for season 1.  Read More »

Genndy Tartakovsky Superman short concept art

It seems like there’s no shortage of stories about abandoned superhero movies, but this one’s a little different in that it’s an animated short rather than a live-action feature. Back around 2013, Genndy Tartakovsky was planning an animated Superman short. His plans were scrapped, but not before back artist Scott Willis had put together a couple of gorgeous concept art pieces. Check out Willis’ work on the Genndy Taratakovsky Superman short below.  Read More »

harry potter video game ride

Major companies filing patents isn’t always news, because many major companies file patents just because they can. This is especially true in the theme park industry, where potential ride and show technology is patented so it can be utilized in a potential future attraction. You know – just in case. After this is a competitive business. Disney was supposedly planning to utilize Kuka arm technology to build a ride based on The Incredibles, only to watch Universal snatch the exclusive rights to this tech for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, the headliner attraction at their The Wizarding World of Harry Potter lands in Universal Studios Florida, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Universal Studios Japan.

So don’t look at Universal’s newest patent as solid confirmation for what we might see in a future Harry Potter ride – look at it as a suggestion of what Universal may be considering for a future attraction. And this patent centers around a “video game ride” that will allow riders to to interact with and change their experience.

Jack Ryan TV Series Plot - John Krasinski

Just last week, Amazon gave a full series order to Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, a new series focusing on the recurring CIA analyst character who has been played by the likes of Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine on the big screen. This time it will be The Office and 13 Hours star John Krasinski in the lead role as he is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time.

All we previously knew about the show’s story was that it would see Jack Ryan uncovering a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale. But now John Krasinski has revealed some more details about the show, including where inspiration for the story will come from and just what kind of series we’re looking at in terms of scale.
