SyFy Challenges Viewers to Create Their Own Movie

Syfy-logo You guys. This is it. This is our big chance. Last night, DinoShark appeared before me, awash in heavenly light, and said, "Raaaahhh!" And because I operate on a higher plane of existence, one where DinoShark and I dish, I knew that that meant, "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their made-for-TV cinema!"

FlashForward Fans Stage Global Lying-Down Protest

Flashforward  In a creative attempt to save the cancelled FlashForward, fans around the world are taking part in what's probably the easiest protest gig ever. No picket lines, no heavy signs, no pesky spellchecking of "MORANS." Everybody just...lies down for awhile.

From The Bad Moms Club: Congratulations! It's a Klingon

Klingon-baby  Um. Some parents take their hobbies really...seriously.

SyFy Greenlights Cooking Show Hosted By Marcel's Gravity-Defying Hair

Marcel-vigneron-spirit-fingers  I know, I know. For a pop culture blog written almost exclusively by self-proclaimed geeks and nerds, we at Mamapop sure do like to pick on the SyFy network. (It's that name change. Still haven't gotten over that name change. Abandonment issues, maybe?) Today's odd programming choice up for debate: Marcel's Quantum Kitchen.


Hey, Remember That Kid From That Movie-Story That Never Ended? [Where Are They Now?]

Atreyu-Noah-Hathaway-Gmork-The-Neverending-Story I read your comments and the overwhelming nomination from last week for my Where Are They Now series was Atreyu from the Neverending Story. That's Die unendliche Geschichte for our German readers.  I live to give, folks.  I live to give.  Except there are limits, and that's all the German I know.  Except schweinerhünd.  But that's another story.

So, where's Atreyu now?

2012 Summer Olympics: Filled With Tea And Crumpets And Creepy, One-Eyed Aliens

Olympics-mascots The official mascots for the 2012 Olympics have been revealed.  Something about having one giant camera eye.  I...am so afraid.

Super 8 Revealed - Kinda

Super-8-film[1] The new film directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Spielberg got an early trailer this last week. What do we know so far, though, really?

For $16,000 You Can Look Like Jessica Rabbit - Sort Of

Annette-jessica_rabbit_makeover Annette Edwards has always loved Jessica Rabbit. Okay, maybe not always, but certainly since 1988.

What do you do when you adore and admire a cartoon character? Get a tattoo? Buy an original drawing? Oh, hell no. That is weak. You get plastic surgery to look like her. Duh.

Vincenzo Natali's Splice Brings Dren To The World

Splice-poster World?  Meet Dren.  Dren?  Meet the World.  Now, watch out World.  Dren will eat your face.  Or something.  Something scary and super creepy involving squirrelly noises and weird eyes and a spikey, unpredictable tail.

Syfy Informs Us that WWE Is "Imagination-Based Sports Entertainment"

Wwe-wrestling About a year ago, the Sci Fi network took a dramatic step toward their rebranding and changed their name to Syfy. Because apparently the key to success is 1) spell things phonetically thereby removing all meaning 2) alienate your already alienated audience base 3) ... 4) PROFIT/DINOSHARK!

Mega Piranha: Mega Anything is Okay With Me. Except Herpes. Mega-Herpes Would Suck.

Mega piranha movie poster  Sometimes a movie comes along that asks all the right questions and speaks to a generation of movie-goers in a unique way that is reflective of the time and place in which it was made. And other times, they make movies like Mega Piranha, where giant fish with teeth try to eat Greg Brady and bad pop stars from the late 1980s and the only way to repel them is by using well-timed karate kicks. I think we can all relate to THAT..

Are You Ready for Some Mother*%&#%@$ DINOSHARK?

Eli's Book is NOT 'What to Expect When You're Expecting'

The_book_of_eli_denzel  I went and saw The Book of Eli this weekend for one reason and one reason only. Because in the trailer for it some sound editor had to put a deeply resonant and ominous bass thud behind the name "Mila Kunis" when they were crediting the actors involved and I HAD to see if they were just fucking with me. Mila Kunis is to dramatic soundtrack noises what antlers are to a ballet dancer. That should be on the SAT, that analogy was so good.

2009 Was Ass-tastic!

2009-sucks-temp The year is almost over and it wouldn't be proper to let 2009 slip away without identifying some of its most hideous trends, colossal mishaps and biggest disappointments. I'm pretty passionate about my list, so look away if you're in a good mood. Without further adieu, let the suckage begin.
