Savage World Horror Action Figures

Do you remember the old Masters of the Universe action figures that gave the characters impossibly buff bodies for kids to play out epic fantasy fights on the living room floor? Well, those retro designs for action figures are being brought back for a new line of figures from Funko called Savage World. The toy line will give characters from the likes of Thundercats and Conan the Barbarian the buff treatment, and that makes perfect sense. But part of this new action figure line-up is positively perplexing.

Funko has unveiled a line of Savage World Horror figures that give the buff body action figure treatment to some of horror’s most iconic slashers. So for those of you who have always wanted to see insanely muscular versions of the killers from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Hellraiser and Friday the 13th, these action figures are for you.

That’s right, for more than half-a-grand, you can look like you just dug something out of the Goodwill donation bin.

Black Panther Theater Attacks

If you’ve spent even a small amount of time on the internet, you know that it can be just as awful as it is great. More recently, the social media landscape has been more horrific than pleasing, and a new example of intentional lies being used to create division and controversy has found its way to the cinema.

This weekend brings Black Panther to theaters, a milestone Marvel movie for a number of reasons, not the least of which is how much black talent is present on the screen and behind the camera. But some racist trolls have used this as an opportunity to heighten racial tension and hate with outright lies about white people being attacked by black audience members. Read More »

Daphne and Velma

Jinkies, here’s a strange idea: a live-action prequel story about how Scooby-Doo‘s Daphne and Velma became friends. Sure, why not? A new Daphne and Velma movie will focus on the female members of Mystery, Inc. when they were still teens, before they teamed up with a talking dog, a boring square, and a squeaky-voiced fellow with the munchies.

DC Extended Universe

Why so serious? Because we’ve all been duped for years, that’s why.

When word came out earlier today about Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s revamped take on their cinematic universe, you may have noticed that we didn’t refer to it as the DC Extended Universe, or “DCEU,” in our article. That’s because we’ve discovered that we’ve all spent the past few years looking like fools: it turns out that term is an unofficial name that was literally made up by a reporter as a joke and was somehow adopted into mainstream usage by every outlet that writes about movies.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

the nice guys reboot

In this week’s edition of “sure, we guess?” news, the moderately successful, mostly forgotten Shane Black noir comedy The Nice Guys is getting the TV reboot that no one was really asking for — but with a genderbent twist.

The Nice Guys is now The Nice Girls, a female-led TV reboot of the ’70s-set profane buddy-comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. While buddy-comedies are a dime a dozen on TV — we even got a Lethal Weapon TV version recently — the news is eyebrow-raising particularly because the movie came out only last year, only to meet mostly positive reviews but an apathetic box office. So it’s curious why this particular property would be chosen for a female-led reboot.
