Jon Snow becomes Leeroy Jenkins in this funny Game of Thrones video mashup!


There are many comparisons being made between last week's Game of Thrones episode and The Lord of the Rings but possibly the funniest comparison being made is that Jon Snow took on the infamous role of Leeroy Jenkins who is known in the viral World of Warcraft video for rushing into battle alone as his party is formulating their plan of attack.

The video below hilarious mashes up the two video with footage from The Battle of the Bastards and the audio of the Leeroy Jenkins video. This is amazing. Enjoy!

Listen to the new Ghostbusters theme performed by Fall Out Boy ft Missy Elliot.


Alright, Ghostbusters fans, here is the new theme song for the upcoming Ghostbusters film. The song is performed by Fall Out Boy ft. Missy Elliot and is titled "Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)".

I have been on board with this new reboot from the beginning because I am a huge Ghostbusters fan and have been since childhood. There are of course things in the new film that are making me nervous like the slapstick humor but I am still willing to give it a shot. I want to like. Will I? Who knows.

Below you can listen to the new theme song for the film. I am a fan of Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot has done some amazing things in her own right but this song, in my own opinion, is just awful. Wow. The song itself is just not catchy or even remotely good and the lyrics are bad as well. Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters theme is as big as the original film itself. This version however will soon be forgotten.

Rapid Fire (Book) Review - Star Wars: Tarkin!


In Realm Beyond Sight's "Rapid Fire Review" I hit the good, the bad, and try to get out before the review becomes too long winded. In this new review I take a look at the book Star Wars: Tarkin by James Luceno.

Star Wars: Tarkin takes place between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope and is a great addition to the Star Wars canon. It is written in such a way that regardless of your Star Wars allegiance (Rebels or Empire), you find yourself rooting for Tarkin and Vader to succeed. In this way the novel is well written. James Luceno does a great job at developing the character of Wilhuff Tarkin and putting some great overall details into the novel. He even manages to fill in a few canon knowledge gaps along the way. For example, you find out that the Emperor took resident in the old Jedi Temple on Coruscant which explains why it is still standing at the end of Return of the Jedi. I quite enjoyed this book but do have to say that in the beginning, the story jumps from present day Tarkin to younger Tarkin and at times does so without warning. It took me a moment sometimes to realize I was reading about a different time period in his life, so that wasn't too fun. That said, the book shares a whole knowledge of Tarkin (history, personality, and intelligence) that was never touched upon in the films and therefore you may not have known was there. You learn about Tarkin's childhood through flashbacks and how he became a strong individual and tactician. You also learn that Tarkin is incredibly smart. Besides being a tactical genius, he was able to figure out who Darth Vader is and put together what really must have happened when then Jedi went to arrest Chancellor Palpatine. He even put it together that the Emperor and Darth Vader were in fact Sith (who to the general population were thought to be extinct) and furthermore was smart enough to keep all this to himself. The novel wasn't all positive notes though. I personally thought the story slowed down at times when it was focused on the enemy. I just didn't find those characters as deep or captivating as Tarkin or Darth Vader. The story shines however in the moments where you see these two, Tarkin and Vader, working together. Seeing their relationship grow was very fascinating. Overall, it was interesting and fun to see things from the Empire's point of view and to see that Tarkin wasn't "evil". He was a military man through and through. It just happened that he was on the side of the Empire. You'll also find out the significance of Tarkin's title of "Grand Moff". This is a well written novel that I would definitely recommend to Star Wars fans, especially if you want to dive deeper into a great character.

Rating: Highly recommend!

3 new posters are released for the Nickelodeon TV movie Legends of the Hidden Temple!


In case you haven't heard yet, Nickelodeon is bringing back their hit game show Legends of the Hidden Temple in the form of a movie! Legends of the Hidden Temple aired from 1993-1995 and was an instant hit with Nickelodeon viewers.

Three posters were revealed today that show some iconic images from the show that will be making their way into the film. First up is the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. (Come on! It's not that hard to put together!!) Next up is Olmec, the legendary head statue that knew the secrets to all of the treasures, and last is the Pendant of Life, a pendant contestants could use to ward off the Temple Guards as they raced to the grand prize.

Film synopsis:
"The Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie follows three siblings who break away from a lackluster tour in a jungle, finding themselves immersed in a high-stakes adventure comprised of obstacles that they must complete in order to escape alive. The TV movie will feature many elements from the original game show including: Olmec, a talking head who greets cast members Noah, Sadie and Dudley, and launches them on the adventure of a lifetime; The Steps of Knowledge, the entrance to the temple and launching pad for the mission; and appearances from a green monkey, red jaguar, and silver snakes, among others."
This synopsis may sound cheesy but if you grew up watching the show then you are probably as excited as I am!


Legends of the Hidden Temple will air on Nickelodeon in 2016.

Video shows the full ride for Disney's Frozen Ever After at Epcot.


Alright, Disney fans! This is it! The "Frozen Ever After" ride has officially opened at Disney World Resort's Epcot and people are loving it. However, Day 1 of the ride saw a line with a 300 minute wait time. That's 5 hours for one ride! That is crazy.

The ride is located in the Norway Pavilion of the park's World Showcase and features scenes that are inspired by Disney's Frozen (2013) and Frozen Fever (2015). If you can't get to the park, or don't want to wait 5 hours, the video below shows you the full 5 minute ride through of the ride and it looks pretty fun. Enjoy!

Honest Trailers - Pixels!


Screen Junkies has created a new Honest Trailer that focuses on the 2015 Adam Sandler film Pixels and it is harsh. To be honest the film didn't get made fun of more than any other film in an Honest Trailer. However, Adam Sandler himself is torn apart in this video.

"From the studio with a resounding 20% average on Rotten Tomatoes comes a classic video game movie that could have been really cool until Sandler got his hands on it - PIXELS!"
Enjoy!

Interesting first Power Rangers poster is released for the upcoming film.


The first poster has been released for the upcoming Power Rangers film and it is much different than what anyone expected. Lionsgate went with a true teaser poster but I have to say for the first poster that it actually works. It focuses on the teenagers themselves as a team rather than their hero alter egos. It comes with the tagline, "Together we are more," and features the silhouettes of the Power Rangers out of their power suits. Playing the Rangers will be Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Ludi Lin as Zack the Black Ranger, and Becky G as Trini the Yellow Ranger. Joining them in the film is Elizabeth Banks as the villainous Rita Repulsa and Bryan Cranston as Zordon.

Look closely at the stars in the poster and you'll notice the iconic Power Rangers lightning bolt.

Power Rangers will be in theaters on March 24, 2017.
