Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is the film that everyone everywhere has been excited for, and yet fearful that it was going to be another Phantom Menace. I’m not going to do any clever preambles or intros here. Let’s get straight into this review of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. It’s what we’re here for, right? So, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
Look, we get it. Sometimes, a cat is so damn cute that you have to steal it and defend it with all the honour and swordsman skills you can muster. We totally understand the compulsion, so we’re glad that there’s a movie that shares the inner conflict we feel.

Kung Fury is one of those things that I’m sure started as one hell of a joke, and just gained life of its own accord because of just how awesome the entire concept felt. It started as a trailer looking for Kickstarter funding–which it received and then some, but still falling short of the funds needed to pay for an full length feature film.
The entire film is a homage to cheesy 80s action flicks, and director David Sandberg also plays lead character, Kung Fury. Some scenes even look as if the entire film is being played back on an old VHS machine. Oh the memories! To top off the cheesiness, the film has a theme song by Mr Knight Rider himself, David Hasselhoff, titled “True Survivor“. The theme song vid on YouTube has well over 10 million views already, so I guess you can consider it popular? Watch the film after the jump and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Airline safety videos have gotten more elaborate in an effort to get people to pay attention. New Zealand airways has their hobbitses, and now Delta has decided to put the entire freaking internet memedom into theirs. How many can you recognize?
Admittedly, although I like to say I’m a big fan of Disney films and IP, I’m not an expert in the world of Tinker Bell. I have sons, not daughters, so I’ve roped in Bacsha Fakier, an expert on Tinker Bell and her Fairy crew, and she’s gone head to head with the Neverbeast to review this film. If you’ve daughters with a penchant for Tinker Bell and her fairies, read on.
Don’t leave food sitting on the table, or else Mama will come for you. And force you to eat it. You can’t run. You can’t hide. Mama will find you. Don’t believe me?

If someone who knows French can correct my meager translation, I’d be appreciative!)
Infographics are awesome, aren’t they? Buzzfeed did a census of Disney females, and the results are…well…see for yourself.

If you liked Bad Motherfucker, you’re going to love this.
Ilya Naishuller, the Russian director who brought you Bad Motherfucker is at it again in Hardcore. Billed as the first ever action POV feature film, Hardcore is shot from the perspective of Henry, a cyborg who needs to save his lady from the clutches of a psychotic tyrant. In for the ride is our very own Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) who provides tutelage on the art of war, in the most British of accents.
It’s action-packed, parkour-filled, and bloody as hell. Check out a clip from Hardcore below.
Hardcore has been shot and edited but it needs some final touches. Naishuller has taken to Indigogo for the additional funds to complete the film. If you’re interested in contributing, you can do so here.
