The Walking Dead Death Rankings (S6 Ep11 Preview)

Welcome back to Pegboards’ Walking Dead Death Rankings!

As a reminder every week Jesse and Kevin will provide rankings based on who they think will die next. The further down the list, the more likely they are to die. They get points based on where the character is on our list. For instance, if Rick dies this week then Kevin will have four points and Jesse will have two points.

This week Kevin names Rick and Michonne’s kids. Meanwhile Jesse creates the “Rick System”.

Survivor Kaoh Rong Episode 2 Review

Come on in guys for my Survivor Kaoh Rong Episode 2 review where I use classic Survivor quotes to assess the latest episode.

We had another episode foreshadowing everyone’s imminent demise. Jason’s sunburn, Liz’s dehydration, Joe’s…oldness. Seriously I feel like I should’ve done a weekly med-evac rankings list like my weekly The Walking Dead Death Rankings.

Alright, find a clue, then find a box and then climb a tree and grab a key and then do a happy dance and then open the box to read what I have to say about this week’s episode. Or just click below. Whatever works. Oh and much like Debbie’s cats there are about 40 spoilers below.

Why the Oscars Need Leo More than Leo Needs an Oscar

Leonardo Dicaprio’s quest for an elusive Academy Award has become somewhat of a running gag. Despite turning in one great performance after another and being nominated for an Oscar on a number of occasions, Leo always gets robbed by the Academy. It’s gotten to the point where this is a real conversation that takes place between Kevin and I.

Me: I’m finally seeing The Revenant today.

Kevin: Which one is that again?

Me: Leo’s newest Oscar snub.

Sad, I know. But you know what, it doesn’t matter if Leo gets overlooked yet again on Sunday for the recognition he rightfully deserves. Hit the jump to find out why.  Continue reading

Deadpool: About Time Someone Got it Right

Remember back in 2009 when comic book fans were thrilled that Deadpool was finally going to be in a movie? And then that movie turned out to be X-Men Origins: Wolverine and we all died a little on the inside? But then Ryan Reynolds said we were going to get an actual Deadpool movie and we all backed away from the ledge a little bit?

Well that was almost seven years ago. I was beginning to lose hope that they would ever do the “Merc with a Mouth” justice on the big screen. Even when Deadpool was FINALLY greenlit and Reynolds was all excited about how it was turning out and the trailer looked very promising, I was still pessimistic. This is the 20th Century Fox after all, who just released this abomination last summer. And movies that loiter in development hell for that long rarely turn out to be good.

So how was Deadpool? Well, in short it was… huh. So THAT’S what it’s like to see the perfect Deadpool movie. Radical.

How to Be Single: The Guide to Independent Misery

I know what you’re thinking. A week has passed since Valentine’s Day and still no Deadpool review. “But Pegboards loves comic book movies,” you say, “so what gives?” Alright, I said that so you didn’t have to.

The truth is I haven’t seen Deadpool yet. I don’t know if Kevin has seen it yet because I haven’t asked him. What I do know is that when your girlfriend asks you to go see a chick flick with her, you put on a smile and secretly hope that it’s actually good so that you don’t have to pretend that you liked it.

So how did How to Be Single turn out? Well, after the movie, my girlfriend asked me if I liked it and when I said yes, she smirked and said, “You don’t have to lie, but thanks for putting up with it.”

Full spoilers follow.

Kung Fu Panda 3: If It Ain’t Broke, Please Don’t Try and Fix It

Sequels in Hollywood are a dime a dozen. For every original idea that gets adapted into a feature length film, we get 20 sequels or spinoffs based on existing properties. It’s easier to go with what worked before rather than come up with something new. Unsurprisingly, this approach fails as often as it succeeds, particularly in animation (Shrek the Third, Cars 2 and Minions all come to mind).

I’m happy to report that this isn’t the case with Kung Fu Panda 3. While it won’t make you forget about Toy Story 3 any time soon, it completes one of the better animated trilogies of our time. It all feels very familiar, but that’s okay.

Survivor Kaoh Rong Episode 1 Review

Come on in guys for my Survivor Kaoh Rong Episode 1 review where I use classic Survivor quotes to assess the latest episode.

You might recall that I previously wrote about Survivor during the mostly controversial season of Worlds Apart. The emotional baggage behind that season was so intense that I decided to take a break for Survivor Cambodia. And now, in the spirit of Cambodia, I am giving this column a second chance. Will the column step up and seize the opportunity like Jeremy? Or will it be super creepy and fail like Vytas? Let’s find out.

13 episodes, 3 months, 1 sole Survivor blog…Sorry I apologize for that. I’ve always wanted to do that.

Alright, go ahead and take the cap off the pen and click below. Oh and watch out for spoilers crawling into your ear.
