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 Best Pictures (That Never Won Best Picture!)

Ah, the Oscars.

That wonderful time of year when rich people come together to act rich, dress rich, eat rich and generally be rich, all without actually having to spend any money, of which they have a lot more than your sorry ass will ever see.

After all, they’ve earned it…right?

In case you're wondering, it's not actually gold - just a gold plated, naked-man-shaped diamond.

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.

For the record, this is not subtle.

Top Four Great Sci-Fi Inventions, That In Reality Would Doom Us All. (Now with 10% more really bad ideas!)

Science Fiction has made many claims for what the future holds in store for us. Sci-Fi writers have comprised lists of nearly millions of brand-spanking new inventions that have made life easier for those in the future, but, let’s face it – would probably royally screw things up back here in the real world.

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

Alright, let’s do this.

“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” is, in my opinion, the second best member of the Indiana Jones saga. 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.

Top five of the funny – people, that is. (Now with 12% more State of Affairs!)

Comedy has always been very important to me. Whereas many of my peers grew up learning an instrument, or musical notation, I was attempting to hone my skills as a comedian. People like George Carlin, Richard Pryor and Steve Martin were my rock stars, and the people I invariably looked up to.

Now I’m all growed up, and really, little has changed.

Rip Torn is the most badass 78-year-old bank robber you’ll ever meet. (And pray that you never do).

Rip Torn, the actor best known for his Emmy-award winning role on “The Larry Sanders Show” (and also for hitting Norman Mailer in the head with a hammer) has apparently been arrested for – and I’m not making this up – alleged armed robbery of a bank in Conneticut while intoxicated. Also, he’s seventy-eight years old.

Awesome.
