Yo, Joe! Virus Prevention is Half the Battle

Yo, Joe! Virus Prevention is Half the Battle
This has to be one of the weirdest movie and franchise tie-ins ever: just in time for the live action movie, there’s a G.I. Joe-themed version of Norton Antivirus, complete with its own website.

Female Space Invaders: I Don’T Remember This Part of the Video Game
I was perusing the dark recesses of eBay’s DVD auctions when I came across this little gem. Featuring such greats as David Hasselhoff, Christopher Plummer and Marjoe Gortner, this 1979 low-budget schlock ripoff on Star Wars’ popularity was originally titled Starcrash, but later got renamed to Female Space Invaders, presumably because video games were starting to take off, or LucasFilm sued them.

Watchmen Character Profiles: for Non-Comic Geeks

Watchmen Character Profiles: for Non-Comic Geeks
Are you a movie buff? Then you’re probably cautiously excited about the upcoming Watchmen movie. Cautiously, because whenever you start to wonder about the movie a horde of Cheetos-smelling chubby geeks with 90s fashion sensibilities immediately surrounds you, desperate to drop knowledge on anyone who’s not into comics and blather on about the Keene Act and the Black Freighter and the first Nite Owl and how the panels on the page of one issue are symmetrical or finish in reverse order or how Rorschach looks like – Since you’re a geek yourself, only another sort of geek, you can’t give these comic fiends a good ol’ shut the hell up punch.

Wooden Wall-E: How Many Trees Had to Die?

Wooden Wall-E: How Many Trees Had to Die?
Disney commissioned UK-based sculptors and a group called Morpheus Prototypes to build this wooden sculpture of Wall-E as a gift for Pixar/Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. Here’s a closer look: I don’t know anything about woodworking or sculpting, so I’ll leave it up to you guys to think of how long it could have taken to build this and how much it’s worth.

Plastic Tablecloths + Brilliance = Pac-Man: the Movie
