Robocop is an invincible sentinel of cyborg justice. He’s incorruptible, bulletproof and can shoot bad guys in the dick from a mile away, something no better summed up than by the scene in the 1987 Robocop movie of him shooting endless bad guys in a drug factory. A scene that we’re now going to make infinitely cooler by talking about how Peter Weller was listening to a soft rock ballad during the whole thing.
It’s fairly well known by now that Tom Cruise as a crazy, egomaniacal asshole with image issues. The latter of which he has largely tried to address over the years by appearing in dozens of films where he gets to pretend to have a massive penis. Perhaps the finest example of Cruise ego-stroking came in 2017 when he re-wrote The Mummy to be more about him.
Thanks to now legendary skit by Dave Chappelle when most people think of Prince they think of a man in crushed velvet suit dunking on Eddie Murphy’s brother. An admittedly private person, Prince only ever directly addressed the skit a handful of time throughout his life. Luckily for us, when he did it was fucking hilarious.
There’s an unwritten rule in Hollywood that states, when you write, direct, produce and star in a movie widely considered to be one of the greatest pieces of fiction ever created, you get to tell pretty much everyone to eat your ass with a spoon. If you’ve never heard of this particular rule, that not surprising given it only applied to one man. Orson Welles.
The Last of Us is largely regarded as one of the finest games of the last generation of video games, part of the reason for this is the game’s incredibly engaging story featuring two of the best realised and most beardy/sweary characters in modern gaming, Ellie and Joel. However, despite Ellie being the main focal point of the entire fucking story, the people how made the game had to fight to put her on its cover.
