We still have high hopes for the collision of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman on the big screen — but we've already gotten a totally insane superhero team-up involving Amazons. Back in 1975, Hong Kong's Shaw Bros. and Italy's Cinematografica teamed up to give us the movie Amazons Vs. Supermen.
Because sometimes you have a World's Largest Gummy Bear, some liquid nitrogen, and a 12-gauge all in the same place at the same time, and you're just crazy enough to see what happens when you combine the three. And you're also clever enough to film it for YouTube viewers 'round the world.
The Hobbit movies expanded the personalities of the Dwarven characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's original book, but sometimes it feels like you need a chart to keep track of who is who under all that beard hair. Fortunately, the Lord of the Rings Project has made just such a chart.
Nearly a quarter of all National Geographic covers has an animal on it. This infographic shows which of them get featured the most.
Just expand this image a little bit and you'll see amazing detail — that's frost forming on ripples of sand, its distinctive wrinkly appearance created by wind whipping along this slope on the inside of a Martian crater.
So you've got that one crappy old chair that most definitely does not tie the room together. Why not take a page from Brazilian artist Rodrigo Bueno, whose love of nature has literally grown together with his creative spirit.
A group of Swiss artists recently set a bot free on the darknet, allowing it to purchase whatever it could with Bitcoins. Among other weird things it bought were a few ecstasy pills and a fake Hungarian passport. Now an attorney asks whether the artists could be arrested under the law as it currently stands.
Earlier today, we asked for help coming up with a word for that thing where a word is innocent in its native language, but sounds like a dirty word to foreign speakers. And not only did we come up with a word — "sordophone" — but also, a pretty impressive list of words that travelers should be careful about saying.
Even by the standard of recent obligatory horror sequels, The Woman In Black: Angel of Death feels like an exercise in futility. Scares are few and far between — and even the Woman in Black herself has the good sense to give this one a miss. Spoilers ahead...
The best thing about Ethan Hawke is every few years he makes some totally bizarro, low-budget scifi movie that is usually pretty clever, and always a little bit insane. The next one on Hawke's list: Predestination. And we have absolutely no idea what is happening in this movie.
Now that the science fiction anthology series Black Mirror is available on Netflix, Americans are discovering what people in the UK have known for years. This show is so dark, intense, and smart that it will rewire your expectations about what television can be.
Back in 1991, OMNI Magazine did a huge survey of the state of science fiction and fantasy publishing, and where people thought things were heading. Not surprisingly, nobody predicted the rise of Borders, much less Amazon or e-books. But some stuff was surprisingly prescient.
If watching the rapid flip of the colors doesn't make you queasy, take a gander at this astounding timelapse video, which shows Kenneth Brandon tackling a 17x17x17 Rubik's Cube-type puzzle. He speeds the whole thing up, so that the puzzle goes from scrambled to solved in just six minutes.
Here's a slick new video that showcases a very old concept. In 1867, Lord Kelvin found a way to generate sparks (and a surprisingly high voltage) using twin showers of water. This video will show you why it works — as well as why it doesn't work quite well enough.
I mean, just look at it! This wonderful recreation of one of the Tokusatsu genre's finest heroes by Flickr User Moko is so well done, it looks almost like an action figure rather than a piece of lego construction.
Some potentially new Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art has dropped, and it appears to reveal an updated version of the Empire's preferred vehicle for space combat. Take a grain of salt, be prepared for a potential spoiler, and then check it out below!
Although X-Men: Days of Future Past managed to incorporate almost every movie X-Man past, there was very little of Anna Paquin's Rogue in it. And yet apparently director Bryan Singer shot a great deal of Rogue footage — footage that will be included in a new edition of the movie which Fox will release on Blu-ray later…
We all know that a villain is just a hero who needs to get a better PR department. The "bad guy" seldom believes that he or she is actually bad, and usually has reasons for his or her actions. But what's your favorite story that shows the villain's point of view on a set of events?
