Inching towards mediocrity.


Top Five Environmentally Friendly Superheroes. (And one who’s NOT).

After an unfortunate two week-ish hiatus, (I won’t bore you with the details surrounding it) I have returned to you, dear readers – bigger, blacker, and more environmentally aware than ever.

On that note, we awkwardly segue into today’s post – looking at some of the “greener” superheroes out there (environmentally green, not Hulk green) and how their unique and individual powers can be viewed as not only extremely useful in times of meta-human inspired mayhem, but also eco-friendly.

And no, arbitrarily and indiscriminately destroying everything in your path does not equal “environmentally friendly." Sorry, big guy.

Top Five Movies That Have an Important Environmental Message! (And Beat You Over The Head With It!)

Movies are great. Movies with a message…not so much.

Now, I’m not saying that I only enjoy mindless entertainment full of one-liners and blood and gore splattering over naked women while they blast away at zombies with artillery that is needlessly devastating (though, I have to admit, that’s pretty okay too), I’m just saying that if you want to teach me something with your film, at least make an attempt to be subtle.

Ten Reasons Why “Temple of Doom” is Better Than You Remember. (Now with 91% more chilled monkey brains!)

Alright, let’s do this.

Before we get right into this, let me state the simple fact that “Raiders of the Lost Ark” might well be the Greatest Movie of All Time, so just understand that the aim of this article is not to dethrone “Raiders” from that lofty placement. It’s just here to suggest that maybe we haven’t really been fair to “Temple” for all these years.

Fourteen fears that you’ll probably never have. (Now with 81% more mole-rats!)

Fear. It is the great divider. It is what separates ordinary from the extraordinary. It can reduce the greatest hero to a gibbering mass of terrified jelly, and when overcome, can elevate the lowliest peasant to heights of courage only dreamed about by mortal man. It descends into the deepest, darkest recesses of our souls and exposes our true nature for all the world to see – utilizing evil images, emotions and visions to tear  us down from the inside. Fear takes on the form of whatever disturbs us the most, and taps into our cultural and emotional psyche to become objectified forms of the things that frighten us the most.
