The above photo of a Frozen VHS started making the rounds around the internet earlier this week, and took me back.
I’m sure one universal memory most people who grew up during the 1980′s or early 1990′s has is opening up one of those large plastic clamshell cases, popping a Disney animated film into the VHS player and waiting for the magic to begin. These days, reminiscing about those times must sound the same as when my father would tell me about the days before remote controls where he had to turn a dial on the television to change the channels. Okay, I’m getting old.
Had Disney actually produced a VHS version of Frozen? Was the movie that popular that the mouse house decided they could make enough money off the now niche market of primary VHS player owners?

We usually keep the meme stuff in Page 2 or Superhero Bits, but I thought this one was particularly funny. Yesterday, after Zack Snyder revealed the first photo of Ben Affleck in the Batman costume alongside the new batmobile (from the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie), the internet took to photoshop and started cropping sad Batfleck into various funny photos and animated gifs. Basically, its the geek version of the Sad Keanu meme from 2010. Hit the jump to see some of the best of the photos and even get a template to create your own Ben Affleck sad Batman photos.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past picking up some very promising reviews on its way to theaters, now seems as good a time as any to take a long, hard look at the last mutant movie, X-Men: First Class. And no one’s looking longer or harder than the folks at CinemaSins, who’ve made the comic book reboot the latest subject of their signature “Everything Wrong With” series.
As usual, the complaints range from totally valid (that villain plot does seem awfully convoluted) to the totally silly (who cares what happened with those Twinkies?). Watch the video after the jump.

Here’s why you have to love Conan O’Brien‘s show. His writers read websites like this. How else do you explain that the talk show host knew a rumored Star Wars Episode VII title is “An Ancient Fear?” It’s not like that hit the mainstream media. Plus, what’s even cooler about Conan is he takes rumors like that and turns them into bits. Often time, they’re bits about Star Wars. He’s the guy who gave Harrison Ford $1000 to offer up a hint about the film, remember? And who can forget Triumph slaughtering the fans (myself included) waiting in line for Attack of the Clones?
Well, Conan is back at it again. He offered up a bunch of alternate titles to Star Wars Episode VII. Learn Conan O’Brien’s Star Wars titles below. Read More »
After Pacific Rim last year, and Godzilla this year, it’s about time the United States military finally figured out a plan to fight giant monsters. And that’s exactly what they’ve done. In a very joking way, of course. Who would win in an Air force Godzilla fight?
The Smithsonian Air and Space Magazine interviewed members of the U.S. Air Force stationed at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan to ask them how they’d combat Godzilla. Check out the answer below plus see an infographic of just how big the new Godzilla is. Read More »
If ever a popular film was ripe for parody, it’s Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Regularly heralded as the worst of the Star Wars films, Clones contains some of the most wooden acting, bad writing, and awkward moments ever seen in big budget sci-fi. Even the action, probably the biggest in all of the Star Wars films, feels flat because it relies so heavily on CGI. On the other hand, the events of this film set up not only The Clone Wars and Anakin’s path the Dark Side, but the love story that brings Luke and Leia to the world. Narratively, it’s so important, but practically, it’s just so bad.
Enter the Screen Junkies, who’ve given the film the hilarious Honest Trailers treatment. It doesn’t touch the Red Letter Media review of the film, but at 3 and a half minutes instead of 90, it gets the job done. Check out the Attack of the Clones Honest Trailer Read More »
If anyone was safe from the horrors of fat-shaming, you’d think it’d be Godzilla. After all, he’s a massive, terrifying monster whose only real job is to be as massive and as terrifying as possible.
Nevertheless, Japanese fans are reportedly mocking Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla for being “an American fatty.” “He’s gone and supersized himself,” one snarked. Hit the jump to see what else they had to say about the poor giant.

The How It Should Have Ended videos are always well done. Insightful, funny, and professional looking. But they’ve taken things to a new level for The Lego Movie. They’ve emulated the animation overseen by directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to create a video that not only looks exactly like it’s part of The Lego Movie, it points out some pretty interesting points. And, because it’s the Internet, it uses Superman and Batman to do so.
