If it's crap ... We'll tell you
It's been a while since Disney fans like myself have been to the dark world of Wasteland, the alternate Disneyland for forgotten and rejected Disney characters over history. Since then, Wasteland's leader Oswald the Lucky Rabbit has started to grow his fan base out of the nerdy Disney fans origins into one where he has his own float in Tokyo Disneyland and merchandise in Walt Disney World.…Continue
I've been a fan of Beau since I first started listening to LEOG on a regular basis. I still am, even listening to the occasional Lounge Geeks podcasts he's on if the topic is something interesting. I mean, let's face it, Beau is really entertaining, and I can't show my appreciation for that properly.
I'm not a big fan on MMORPGs in general. The last one I played was…Continue

No, you read that title right. In an effort to teach today's developing children how to compromise, Sesame Street decided the best way was to parody Boardwalk Empire... using birds. Check it out.
This segment is just the latest in a series of popular show parodies with titles including Mad Men and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Lights. Hopefully, they will do a Breaking Bad parody. If and when they do, I hope it features Beaker and Dr.…Continue
Wow, I haven't wrote anything in a long time, huh? Well, I kind of felt compelled to write a review for this movie. So, yeah, here we go.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green is the newest fairy tale from Disney that is about a pair of wanna-be parents who really want to be parents. But they can't because they simply cannot biologically produce a child. The night they get this news,…Continue

Let it be known that I am a fan of the Penny Arcade show "Extra Credits." Their show is rather interesting when it comes to the subject of what makes games fun and how the industry fits in contemporary culture. In their most recent "Games You Might Not Have Tried" episode, one title stuck out to the point where, yes, I had to try it. And ended up reviewing it for Spill since, you know, I'm…Continue
While watching Hugo, I realized that he is the man responsible for firing the projectionists. As I once talked about before, the movie theater industry has been pushing…Continue

With all this talk about how the movie theater industry is losing money and theories being posted as to why, it's a wonder if any of the major movie theater companies are going to change up their act. And from my unique perspective, I can say with some confidence that they probably won't.…Continue

First off, I'm not really familiar with the Tintin comics. This was the first time I've been exposed to the story from this character, despite having seen the original drawings of Tintin and his dog Snowy. And if we are to go by the old saying of "make a good first impression," then for a lot of people, this is probably the best introduction to the character I could imagine.…Continue

I'm in an odd position now that I've seen something from the other side of the counter. I say this because, like the title of this entry suggests, I just got back from my first press screening. Now I could talk about the film, but I'm pretty sure that's breaking some kind of protocol as far as being a +1 for a press screening. Or at least, I think it is. I'm not quite sure.
Anyway, having worked the other side of the counter, I often see a demographic that clearly loves…Continue

This past week, I found myself doing a retrospective marathon of sorts with the Harry Potter films. I wasn't planning on doing this; it just kind of happened after I received my box set of the eight film collection. While I could go into reviewing the product itself, I feel like I should avoid doing so. After all, this is a cash-grab…Continue

It appears that the game developers at EA can't take criticism of any sort, be it a rage-filled spewing of hateful words or a civilized and constructive short story examination of their product.
Last Thursday (September 22, 2011), EA released a demo for their upcoming Sims 3 Pet expansion. Anxious users downloaded the software from EA's Origins store, their digital distribution program. Upon launching the game, the demo would screw up any saved data associated with their…Continue

Where do I begin with this? I guess the first thing to do, much like any other addiction, is to admit that I'm a Sims player. I didn't get into The Sims until this recent installment, but since then, I've become addicted to it. The God game genre in general is one that caters to my love of absolute power and control over pretty much anything. But as I continued to play with this franchise, it became clear that Electronic Arts is just treating this popular PC title as a way to print…Continue
A few days ago, I posted a short entry sharing the fan film "Portal: No Escape." Since then, some interesting facts have been turning up about the short, which has surpassed the production quality of most fan films out on YouTube currently.
So about two weeks ago, I found myself playing a game on a Flash website. I didn't know it at first, but I got suckered into playing a Farmville clone because of my love for theme parks and vacation resorts. I mean, hell, I bought Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 for that exact same reason. And yet, despite how…Continue

This has been passed around the internet for a while, but when I finally saw it, I thought one thing. This must be shared on Spill.com.
Here is a fan film featuring everyone's favorite first-person shooter puzzle.
Yeah. That's a FAN MADE film!
What the hell, Hollywood?! If fans of the franchise can do something this excellent, why…Continue

So Nickelodean released this at Comic Con...
Yeah, I'm excited as hell, but this trailer shows a lot more than you may initially realize.
Here's what we knew before this trailer:
The story takes place some 70 years after the events of the original series. Aang has died, and Korra is has been born in his place. She is from the Water Tribe, and at the start of this story, she's already mastered Water-, Earth-,…Continue
Spill’s review on Monte Carlo, with its five-minute rant on the current crop of Disney Starlets heading towards controversy, got me thinking about Disney’s quest for the next Annette Funicello. It’s been a quest that I’ve been aware of since the 90’s Mickey Mouse Club and have causally followed over the course of my life. It’s something of a futile quest on Disney’s part, and I personally think Disney just needs to give up and stop.
But, hey, let me back up a bit and…Continue

Okay, so, yeah, I’m the one guy on Spill that likes Cars. I also had a fun time with the story presented in Cars 2. And, yes, I was the retard that laughed at the Ratatouille car pun, and I apologize for screaming “That’s Bruce Campbell!” to anyone that was at my screening.
But at lot of people hate the movie. Hell, a lot of people hate the franchise and all the toys that go with it. I’ll admit, I groaned with the rest of you at that State Farm commercial they aired…Continue
This is bothering me quite a bit, so I might as well post it to see if anyone else agrees with me.
I will be talking about the ending of the film. If you haven’t seen Kung Fu Panda 2 and know all of the major plot points that lead up to the ending of the film, leave now. This is your spoiler warning. Beyond this paragraph, I will be going in detail as to what the ending is and what it implies will happen, as well as various plot points in the movie…
