Rick and Morty Christmas Stuff

There are only two weeks until Christmas arrives, but that’s plenty of time for you to get schwifty with some killer new holiday gear courtesy of Adult Swim’s fantastic animated series Rick and Morty.

Under normal circumstances, there’s no good reason to go into a Spencer’s gifts unless you need to get something for your dirtbag friend, or you just need a tacky white elephant Christmas gift. But since Spencer’s has some cool, exclusive Rick and Morty holiday gear that is only available for the next couple weeks, it might be time to bite the bullet and head to your local shopping mall.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Simpsons House Redesigned

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more iconic television residence than that of the house in which The Simpsons reside. Located at 742 Evergreen Terrace in Springfield, Somwhere, the two-story house is easily recognizable, and not just because it’s a cartoon. But what if the house was given a makeover?

Don’t worry, The Simpsons creators and executive producers aren’t looking to overhaul the house that The Simpsons have called home for 29 seasons and counting. But some architecture experts decided to give The Simpsons house a drastic change by redesigning it in eight different styles. It’s a pretty cool little project. Read More »

johnny depp grindelwald

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: why J.K. Rowling and the crew of the Fantastic Beasts sequel should not try to defend the casting of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.)

I’m disappointed. I’ve long upheld Harry Potter to be a series that explores the devastating consequences of domestic abuse and encourages tolerance and empathy. I admired J.K. Rowling, the author of those beloved books and now a screenwriter of the prequel series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as a proponent of those same standards.

But the magic threatens to be lost. Director David Yates and others involved in the new films have recently been scrambling to defend the casting of Johnny Depp as the evil wizard Grindelwald in the first Fantastic Beasts and its upcoming sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald amid domestic abuse allegations from Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard. And now Rowling has jumped in to defend Depp. Read More »

Cinelinx Expansion Packs

If you’ve been reading /Film for a few years, you might remember us touting a cool movie card game called Cinelinx. The game featured 220 cards that have either actors names, directors names, movie titles, scenes, quotes, or genres on them, and players had to figure out how to create links between them with the cards in their hands. It was a successful Kickstarter campaign that resulted in the game getting produced, and now the creators are looking to keep the fun going with two new expansion packs.

Cinelinx has started a new Kickstarter campaign to fund two new expansion packs, The 80s and Blockbusters 1970s-2017, each with 54 new cards that tie into the original game. The pledge to back the expansion packs and get your own for helping push the project forward is pretty cheap too, so find out how you can support the project below. Read More »

Prime Video Apple TV

Good news for Apple TV users who long for the warm embrace of Amazon Prime Video: six months after Apple CEO Tim Cook assured users it would happen, Amazon Prime Video is now available on Apple TV. Yes, that’s correct: Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV is finally a reality. This decision will hopefully end a feud between Apple and Amazon, with Amazon refusing to sell Apple’s streaming box unless Apple TV made Prime Video available.
