One of my favorite movies of all time is Léon: The Professional. Not only was it the big screen debut of Natalie Portman, but she played a complete badass in the film, which she starred in at age 12, but it was helmed by the wonderfully over-the-top French director Luc Besson.
Few things are less appealing to a cowboy from the rural wilds of Texas that is a real rodeo cowboy than moving to New Jersey. This is exactly what happened to Steve Bacque when he met a woman from Jersey and got married.
Can you believe that the LEGO minifigure is officially 40 years old? Humanoid LEGO figures were introduced in 1975, but they had no faces and no moveable limbs, then in 1978 they began to look like the articulated minifigures we have now.
The ’70s and ’80s were a great time to grow up. We had all of the coolest movies and toys. The Lite Brite was just one of them. The idea was that you would punch plastic pegs through a dark background with lights behind it.
Of all the families in the Game of Thrones realm, the Lannisters are the most screwed up. They have the money, power, and more dysfunction of any three other families combined. One of them broke free of the madness to some extent, and that’s Tyrion – who, like many of you, I’m sure – is my favorite of the clan.
Recently LEGO Technic released a scale model of the Bugatti Chiron, and I thought that was pretty darned impressive in its own right. But now, a team of ingenious and talented designers and engineers have gone above the call of duty, creating a full-size replica of the Chiron, made almost entirely from LEGO Technic parts.
If you want to relive some of that ’80s gaming glory you had on the Atari, there’s are a couple of new ways to enjoy that, courtesy of PQube. For starters, the Atari Retro Handheld system features a 2.4″ LCD screen, looks inspired by the classic console, and comes packed with 50 games inside.
Check out these toy cars racing their hearts out. This race looks pretty intense, but these cars aren’t even technically racing. They are on a treadmill, and the belt is moving, not the cars. Still, if you look at the footage in Diego Jesus Asim’s treadmill racing videos for a little while it almost looks like a real race with the ground moving by fast underneath them.
If you are into skateboarding, but want to do it with as little effort as possible, this might be just the ticket. The Autobalancing Electric Skateboard lets riders zoom along at speeds up to 17 mph while the skateboard does the hard part of keeping them upright.
Trivial Pursuit is generally one of those games some hate to play, and others love. The original game had questions based on all sorts of general knowlege, and there are numerous versions for fans of specific movies or shows.
Despite what the images here tell you, cockroaches are not cute, nor cuddly, and certainly not adorable. They are not your friends. They are meant to be squashed under foot sprayed with Raid and sent to Roach Motels, not hugged and squeezed with love.
Colorado is a strange place for weather. One day it’s 98-degrees and sunny, the next, baseball size hail is crushing everything, and the next, you wake up and it’s 40-degrees out and the leaves are changing colors.
A few weeks ago at SDCC, NERF announced its Rival Overwatch Reaper Edition Blaster, based on the Reaper’s Wight Hellfire shotgun. Now another Overwatch NERF weapon has surfaced: the D.Va Light Gun. The details remain true to the game weapon, except of course when it comes to capacity and the projectiles it shoots.
