Olivia Munn Doesn’t Need Telekinetic Powers To Make Nerds Fap

olivia munn x men outfitIt’s hard not to be a pervert while looking at Olivia Munn in general, especially if you’re a nerd who enjoys nerd things like ‘Attack of the Show’ (rest in peace) and new X-Men movies.

I haven’t actually seen her for awhile, but I’ve also been cheating on The Twist with other websites for the past two years, covering topics I often couldn’t care less about for moolah. Plenty of love for Rant Chic, but I’m never writing about tampons or Kylie Jenner or Kylie Jenner’s tampons again in my life.

Anyway, Olivia is sexy to everyone but Packers fans, who believe she’s a demon siren sent from the worst circle of hell to make them lose five games this season. (But she’s terrible at her job because they’re still #1 in the NFC North.)  Continue reading “Olivia Munn Doesn’t Need Telekinetic Powers To Make Nerds Fap”

Princess Peach And Storm Redesigns Will Blow Your Nerdy Mind

Princess Peach and Storm drawings The following illustrations of Princess Peach and X-Men’s Storm by female sci-fi artists Kirbi Fagan and  would bring Mario and Professor X to tears.

Click here for a side-by-side comparison of Peach from N64 and Fagan’s bazooka Peach and here for one of badass thigh-baring comic book Storm and even more badass “Weather Witch” / “Nature Goddess” Storm.

And also check out Fagan’s website. Anyone with a living room, a few bucks and a love of conversation pieces needs her Winnie The Pooh painting ASAP.

Trailer: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Though I think it was kind of douchey for Bryan Singer to take back the franchise he killed from Matthew Vaughn, the man who revitalized it with X Men: First Class, Days of Future Past looks promising.

With the help of Picard and Gandalf’s narration, Hugh Jackman’s bare chest and Jennifer Lawrence’s tears, Singer may successfully Febreze away the stench of X Men: The Last Stand.

Jennifer Lawrence Lost Weight to Play Mystique?

Jennifer Lawrence mystique new x menFlog and chastise me all you want for talking about Jennifer Lawrence‘s weight, but I’m one of the good guys. I talk about it because I can’t believe people actually think she’s “overweight” or big in any way and aren’t just saying it to be mean. (Need I remind you of formerly respected New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis, who wondered why Lawrence and her “womanly figure” were cast as starving Katniss Everdeen.)

The internet is abuzz after X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of naked J-Law back in the blue Mystique paint she last donned in 2011.

Everyone’s like “Oh my god, she lost weight, the criticism is getting to her.” OR it’s because she just went through a breakup (with First Class co-star Nicholas Hoult).  Continue reading “Jennifer Lawrence Lost Weight to Play Mystique?”

Halle Berry Forces Short Hair on Her ‘X-Men’ Mutant

Halle Berry Days of future past Returning X-Men/X2 director Bryan Singer’s latest peek into X-Men: Days of Future Past is a look at Halle Berry as Storm, or rather, a look at Halle Berry’s hair, as there’s nothing fantastic or unique about her outfit.

If Storm’s hair has to be short because Halle Berry has short hair in real life, is her character also pregnant now? Berry herself addressed the dangers of filming Singer’s action-heavy movie with child. From JoBlo:

“Storm probably won’t be as badass as she was going to be because we won’t be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that. She’ll be different than we originally planned her to be.”

No fighting. No flying. No Zeus baby clutching lightning bolts in the ultrasound. No fun at all.  Continue reading “Halle Berry Forces Short Hair on Her ‘X-Men’ Mutant”

Openly Gay Comic Book Characters, Latest In ‘Astonishing X-Men’

If I was a backwoods old timey conservative I’d say that ‘the gays have been infiltrating the media for years,’ and that it’s gone beyond just movies and television.

Yes, as if Queer As Folk, Will & Grace, The L Word, Brokeback Mountain, Skins, and Modern Family weren’t enough, there are homosexuals in video games (Dragon Age, Mass Effect, The Witcher 2) and comic books! Get the pitchforks.

Doonesbury (in 1976), Wonder Woman (1988), The Authority (1999), Batwoman (2006) and Archie (2010) are all examples of comics with gay characters.

In 1992 as a part of Alpha Flight, the Marvel superhero Northstar came out of the closet.

Original Cast And Director To Return For ‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel

You can rest easy, the next X-Men movie is unlikely to throw the franchise back into the depths of critically-panned hell. Not only does it sound like the original cast will return but the director, Matthew Vaughn, will reprise as well.

Michael Fassbender as a vengeful Magneto and Jennifer Lawrence as the naked blue shapeshifter Mystique are reportedly sure to  star and I would assume James McAvoy too though that has not been confirmed.  Continue reading “Original Cast And Director To Return For ‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel”
