San Diego Comic Con is here! That means it's the time of year where we get lots of updates on sci-fi movies and other stuff coming to us over the next year. It's also the time where companies offer exclusive, limited production merchandise that can only be obtained at the show, like this exclusive LEGO 1960's Batmobile! If you're lucky enough to be at the show AND lucky enough to hold a winning raffle ticket, enjoy your purchase! If not, screw you, loyal customer!
Last week I didn't ask you anything.

Good morning. In less than an hour, bloggers from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest online discussion in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom--not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from boring conversations. We are fighting for our right to think. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the blog declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate the 1996 film Independence Day!
Last week I asked you if TV shows were better than movies now, and you answered Yes.
Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Horrible Bosses 2, Foxcatcher and more!
In Theaters This Week: Deliver Us From Evil, Earth to Echo and Tammy
Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Bad Words and The Raid 2
Glenn celebrates his freedom to submit links to interesting articles by, well, submitting links to interesting articles!
The TV theme song is dead. That's what you get for spending money on quality writers instead of quality musicians!
Chicago has won a bid to host the George Lucas Cultural Museum, which includes a Star Wars wing, and San Francisco is very cross. In completely unrelated news, I might need to crash on either Andy's or Jawas' couches five or six times a year.
And in a link that was sent in weeks ago and fell through the cracks, if you've been paying for Tarkovsky films over the last few years, you are a fool
For some reason I want to buy a New Japan Lion Mark shirt and be a hipster wearing it around since I know nothing about puro. At least Andy would have something new to make fun of. Anyway, I was attempting to navigate the NJPW online store, which is in Japanese. They have some... odd merchandise, to say the least.
X-Men: Apocalypse will take place in 1983, meaning that the X-Men can go to a theater and watch Return of the Jedi, National Lampoon's Vacation, A Christmas Story, or any of the other fine films released that year
The latest Wachowski Brothers flick Jupiter Ascending has been pushed from July to February 2015. They claim it "isn't finished," but the delay is usually Hollywood speak for "it sucks." Still a good move though since it was originally set to come out in-between Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Guardians of the Galaxy
Ya Boy Andy here pulling double duty this week and filling in for JediTARD as he celebrates his birthday this weekend. I think he's throwing some lame party and calling it Quarter Century Chaos or something stupid like that. What a doofus!
Anyway, Tab Soda was telling me a few days ago how he was pleasuring himself to the Raw where Edge and Lita have live torrid sex, which apparently they put on the network. So I went back and checked out the live thread for that show on Scott Keith's old LiveJournal and was in hysterics! BBH gets reeled in by a troll, HMC praises workrate and then there's this gem from Jope where he claims he doesn't want to watch "ugly people" have sex!
Last week Tab Key asked if you enjoy the more recent Adam Sandler flicks, and you unanimously said no.
So I was sitting here struggling to come up with a gimmick for this week's Fiesta, as is the norm, when I came across this GIF, and I figured it had to be shared here for our disgust and/or perversion...
(Also what the hell is up with that website? Either make it a GIF or don't!)
Last week I asked you if you liked the revealed pictures of the Ben Affleck Batman and his Batmobile, and you tied between YES and MEH.
Box Office News: Apparently people didn't get the memo that you're supposed to run AWAY from Godzilla
Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Foxcatcher, Magic in the Moonlight and more!
In Theaters This Week: Blended and X-Men: Days of Future Past
Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Endless Love
Last week we got a look at the new Batman and Batmobile, and now we have a logo and a title for the Batman/Superman movie
Adam Sandler confirms our deepest, darkest fears: every film he makes is basically a paid vacation, and since people will willingly exchange their physical currency to see his latest works, we'll keep getting crap like Jack and Jill, so pat yourselves on the back everybody!
