Yesterday I dropped some serious knowledge bombs on you guys in the form of the original names of movies, before they were changed, and today I’m back to do the same things with popular TV shows. More
I now have two reasons to respect Dominic Monaghan: He didn’t let Lost stop him from calling out Matthew Fox for allegedly beating up several women, and he hasn’t tried to backtrack, either. More
Here at Crushable, our capacity for geekiness is limited—we love Internet memes and Game of Thrones, but we don’t write about the bread-and-butter of geekdom (comics, sci-fi) as much as other sites. But we can’t ignore something so huge as New York Comic Con happening in our backyard! For better or for worse (depending who you ask), NYCC has grown to include more mainstream movies, TV, and celebrities, so we’ve compiled 10 panels that we think you guys would like. More
“[J.J. Abrams said,] ‘There should be a hatch on this island! They spend the entire season trying to get it open. And there should be these other people on the island.’ And I’m like, ‘We can call them The Others.’ And he’s like, ‘They should hear this noise out there in the jungle.’ And I’m like, ‘What’s the noise?’ And he’s like, ‘I don’t…know. They’re never going to pick this thing up anyway.’” More
Lost star Matthew Fox was briefly detained by the police Saturday night by local police in Cleveland, Ohio. The alleged crime? Hitting a woman in a dispute over whether or not he could climb on board her party bus. (Not a euphemism.) More
Didn’t make it to San Diego Comic-Con in person? Never fear! Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, most of the videos, trailers, and previews of all the hotly-anticipated upcoming television shows and films are available for you to watch right in the comfort of your own homes! Walking Dead season 2 preview? We’ve got that. Fright Night sneak peek? We’ve got that, too. Looking for a taste of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s new show Ringer? Look right here. You want a Lost deleted scene? Yep. We’ve got a little something for everyone here, so come on in and make yourselves at home; the screening room’s open and the projector is running! More
Another Earth is a fascinating indie from Fox Searchlight, about how humanity reacts to a second Earth suddenly showing up in their atmosphere one night. Specifically, the story focuses on Rhoda (Brit Marling), who makes the one mistake that dashes her future at MIT: She gets into a car accident that kills John’s (William Mapother) wife and child. When she gets out of jail four years later, Earth II is nearly in line with ours, and Rhoda searches out John to apologize, but instead hides her true identity.
Like all good speculative-fiction movies, Another Earth showcases an intimate, sparse story against the large scope of this jarring new reality. And while it has a compelling emotional journey, the ending is — wisely, frustratingly — ambiguous. More
Last week, we brought you the hilarity that is “Trolling Saruman,” a glorious mashup of The Lord of the Rings and the infamous Trololo meme. And you know what? It occurs to us that lots of other pop culture fixtures could benefit from the Trololo treatment. Any readers out there handy with video editing want to get on these? More
“Moo-ooom! Don’t make me remove my John Locke tattoo! Mom, it’s not faiiiir. Don’t tell me what I can’t do, Mom! God, you’re embarrassing me.” More
Last weekend, we took a walk down memory lane with a video from The Beets, the hit band from original Nicktoon Doug (and if you’re me, yo. u’ve had “Killer Tofu” stuck in your head all week). But you know what? The Beets aren’t the only awesome fictional band out there. Far from it, in fact; there are veritable loads of them, just waiting to take your socks and rock them clean off your feet. So break out the cowbell, because it’s about to get loud!
Seth Green just tweeted this photo of Katee Sackhoff, Michelle Trachtenberg, Billy Baldwin, and Harold Perrineau, Jr. at the table read for Sexy Evil Genius, a new indie film. Of course, in this photo we’ve got a bevy of geeky shows represented: Lost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Battlestar Galactica. The sexy evil genius of the title is Sackhoff, who lures her exes to meet her at an L.A. bar, though they have no idea what her devious intentions are. More
This is amazing: Upon seeing X-Men: First Class, geek scribe Damon Lindelof tweeted, Emma Frost’s THREE mutant powers: Telepathy, Transformation to Solid Diamond and last but not least, Sucking at Acting. While it’s a great putdown, and we’ve never been January Jones fans, I’m surprised that a Hollywood star who’s not an actor would say something negative about another actor. More
Attention Lost fans! The last hatch door is in New York – the East Village, to be exact. Okay, it’s actually a Taoist Center, but you have to admit that the resemblance is striking. More
