A Review Of The Awesome October 2014 Loot Crate

Loot-Crate2

(PCM) For those that aren’t in the know, Loot Crate is an amazing monthly subscription box that contains all sorts of amazing geek and gamer themed products. A strong bonus is that many of those items happen to be Loot Crate exclusives as well!

The wonderful folks over at Loot Crate were generous enough to send us here at PCM, a crate to review and we were absolutely thrilled by the contents it contained!  The theme for the October 2014 crate was “Fear” and it was certainly chock full of some incredible products!

Loot-Crate1Without a doubt my favorite item contained in October’s crate was the adorable Death By Kitten t-shirt by Super 7. I literally grabbed it out of the box and wore it the very day that the crate arrived! Who would have thoughts that kittens could be scary? Well, when they are in the shape of a skull it is pretty frightening, then again maybe not, but nonetheless this shirt rocks!

One of the October Loot Crate exclusives was the Sledgesaw Hammer Pen by Capcom in support of Dead Rising. I can see that this will now be my new writing instrument of choice. I absolutely can’t wait to begin answering questions about this one, especially when I pull it out to take notes during a meeting or press conference.

Being that I am a huge, huge fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the cutesy “Oh, Brother” Art Print from SuperEmoFriends was a wonderful crate surprise. I without a doubt need to get a frame for this and place it on my desk as soon as humanly possible.

The crate also contained some wonderful reading material such as the uber informative “How To Survive A Sharnado” guidebook because … well you never know! There was also a Walking Dead comic included with an exclusive Loot Crate cover. I have already read the issue from front to back and can’t wait to see what’s next.

Also included in the crate were Loot Crate Labs Slashes and Bites Temporary Tattoos, a piece of Toxic Waste Candy, and a Smite gift card!  Overall, that is a ton of products for a monthly price that equals out to just under $20.00 per month. You really can’t beat it!

Now we are on the edge of our seats to see what goodies will be in next moth’s epic Loot Crate!

Mr. Incredible And Batgirl Duke It Out On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Bat-Incredible

(PCM) A new viral video is making the rounds on the internet which showcases a scuffle that took place between costumed characters, Mr. Incredible and Batgirl.

As if that was not odd enough, another individual dressed as Chewbacca jumps in and tries to break up the fight with no avail. Next, Where’s Waldo and Freddy Kruger jump into the fight and trust, me we couldn’t make this up even if we tried.

Can you just imagine the sight of all these icon pop culture character embattled in an epic throw down on the streets of Los Angeles?

The fight broke out just in front of the famous TCL Chinese Theater on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. There is no official word on what initially caused the fight, but the costumed characters that often frequent the Hollywood Walk of Fame are often incredibly territorial about their spots and placement on the block.

The video was captured by FilmOn.com, as they so happened to be the right place at the right now filming footage for another event that was taking place at the TCL Chinese Theater that evening.

You can see the absolutely stunned look on the face of several tourists who witnessed the fight and currently authorities are looking into the situation now that the video of the incident has surfaced.

Price Is Right Contestant Becomes A Viral Dance Sensation!

Eliot-PIR1

(PCM) Price Is Right contestant Eliot managed to pull off a feat during his recent appearance on The Price Is Right that few have been able to accomplish.

While spinning the famous wheel, Eliot landed on the $1.00 space not only once, but twice earning him prize money in the amount of $25,000! However, surprisingly it was not Eliot’s incredible wheel spins that has caused him to go viral on the net, but rather his insane dance moves after realizing what exactly he had accomplished.

Not only did Eliot lay down and do the “worm”, but he also did some crazy butt gyrations and a few ninja kicks for good measure!  It was absolutely hilarious!

Eliot was also the showcase showdown’s big winner earning himself prizes and cash totaling nearly $60,000 when all was said and done!

Can this guy be my new good luck charm? Check out the full video below:

Batman V Superman Movie Rumors: Robin Will Be A Girl?

Jena Malone May Play the Carrie Kelley Robin from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns(PCM) Will Batman’s Robin be a girl? Director Zach Snyder is on the record that he’s modeling a good bit of the Batman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice after the fan favorite 1986 Frank Miller Batman story The Dark Knight Returns, in which Batman begrudgingly takes on another Robin. It just so happens Robin is a girl.

Some would argue it’s a bad idea to go with a girl Robin. However if you’ve read the 1986 masterpiece by Frank Miller, you’d know it was an excellent decision.

If you don’t have time to read the story, be sure to rent (better yet own) the DC animated two parter released in 2013, The Dark Knight Returns. It stays faithful to the Frank Miller original and is considered by many to be one of the greatest Batman books to date.

Will it be the Carrie Kelley of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and if so, is this the face of Robin?

If so, the question is will this Robin take on the role of Frank Miller’s Robin in The Dark Knight Returns?

Keep in mind, this is currently only credible to the level of rumor.  Remember in 2011, some sites were boasting that Justin Bieber had landed the role as Robin in the third installment of Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.

Justin Bieber wanted to be Robin.

Thankfully that was a rumor. Of course, Beiber does strike a good resemblance.

Regardless of if this rumor is true, should the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice even have a Robin?  While the point of Batman’s career timeline does suit a Carrie Kelley Robin, would the story be overloaded with characters?

Warner Bros. is taking a different approach in catching up with Marvel by getting right to the Justice League, instead of many solo films then an ensemble like Avengers, but there was a reason for the solo films. It wasn’t simply origin, it was to allow us to learn the characters, their flaws and positive points that gave us cause to be invested in a team up.

DC may be moving too fast in an effort to catch up. Until we see it on the big screen all this advanced information does make for great speculation.

Virgin America Pokes Fun At Long Tedious Flights With New Ad Campaign

Virgin-America1

(PCM) Nearly all of us at one point or another have had to deal with a long and tedious flight, especially one that is headed cross-country. You are dealing with issues such as screaming children, lack of food, zero leg room and of course obnoxious seatmates.

Virgin America has decided to poke a little fun, as well as, make a statement about just how long and boring cross-country travel can become with their new ad campaign. The campaign also reminds individuals that there is indeed a better way to fly!

The new ad campaign features an over five hour long video that shows us the pains associated with flying cross-country on the humorusly titled “BLAH Airlines” through the eyes of a mannequin who is stuck on the flight.

Adweek recently featured the campaign and obviously the mannequins represent actual passengers who are often time forced to suffer on these long and grueling flights. The point of the lengthy ad is to bore individuals into flying with Virgin America to avoid the “BLAH Airlines”.

According to Virgin themselves, “Just trying to watch the video is downright painful—and that’s the point. If you wouldn’t sit through the entire film, why would you pay money to experience it in real life?” We can’t see anyone actually sitting down to watch the entire five hour and forty-six minute ad. If you would like to give it a shot, the entire five plus hour ad can be viewed below:
