Mocking Meme Imagines Various Movies with Dialogue Written by Joss Whedon

As writer and director Joss Whedon comes under fire for a history of alleged abuse and misconduct, Twitter is taking the opportunity to burn Whedon's notably goofy writing style through a clever snowclone meme. The first examples of the meme seem to have come from @MeganBitchell, who posted stills from Silence of the Lambs and Saw captioned with Whedon-esque dialogue. 

 

Once well-known for girlbossing his femme characters and fancying himself a champion of feminism, Whedon's 'wokeness' and stylistic instincts have become somewhat of a joke in light of recent accusations. The fact that people can parody his dialogue with little effort makes the meme even funnier. Try it out—it works on literally any movie.

20+ Robert Pattinson Memes From 'Twilight' to Track Jacket

At this point, the meme world has bestowed its own celebrity status to many actors and public figures. Nic Cage was absolutely everywhere for a while. Keanu has lent his mug to everything from Sad Keanu to Mini Keanu, with a ton of wholesomeness in between. To be a star these days is to submit yourself to the meme makers of the internet. And some media personalities fare better than others. 

One person who's been both roasted (for his revolting pasta recipe) and revered in meme history is actor Robert Pattinson. Nearly a decade and a half after he graced screens as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series, he's become somewhat of a meme mainstay. His role in the Sadie Brothers' tense and thrilling Good Time was especially fruitful where formats are concerned. The classic track jacket meme has been everywhere since its inception, and this year we've got the 'You Think You're Better Than Me' format trending amongst both Redditors and A24 junkies. As today is Pattinson's birthday, we thought we'd celebrate with a handpicked selection of memes that feature him as a star. Some of them are dated. Others are extremely stupid in the name of irony. And others have become classics. But we're happy that they all celebrate our favorite sparkly vampire turned indie darling.

Knuckles Is On Board For Sonic 2 & He Doesn't Look Like Crap

Remember how horrible Sonic looked in the first iteration of 2020's Sonic the Hedgehog? Well, thanks to some leaked images from the Sonic 2 set, we're happy to report that it seems we're avoiding similar cursed aesthetics in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. More importantly? Knuckles is along for the ride.

We've known since February that Tails would be joining our favorite hedgehog for his movie's sequel, but people are now celebrating that Knuckles the Echidna will be along for the ride as well. Sonic's rival has been a fan favorite since the character's debut in 1994, and has also become a meme in his own right. Remember Ugandan Knuckles? Leaked photos reveal that Knuckles will be looking much, much better than the VR chat avatar, and much, much better than the cursed Sonic we've tried to erase from our collective memory. You can see the photos - and some thrilled reactions below. But don't get too excited. The movie won't be in theaters until April 8, 2022. They've got plenty of time to screw this up.

In the real world, most trade policies and financial systems are built by economists or businessmen or dudes on r/wallstreetbets who have some sort of training or expertise in that area. In movies like Star Wars, Harry Potter, and John Wick, it's all designed by people who mostly have training in explosions and expertise in booby scenes. And… it shows. Today, "Doctor" Jordan Breeding and Your Brain On Cracked return to make sense of the movie monies.

Twitter Meme Mocks Preachy Vaccine Tweets Using Pop Culture References

Ever since vaccinations became available for pretty much every age and risk group, it seems like some people are not willing to stop their preachy Covid-shaming. Twitter is one place where this is super obvious. At this point in the pandemic, we're all well aware of Covid-19's myriad risks, as well as the risks of not taking it seriously. But if the CDC is saying that vaccinated people can travel - why are so many Twitter users insisting that they stay home? Whatever the reason, the preachy tweets have started a meme. And we're enjoying it way more than its self-important inspiration. 

The meme riffs off of a tweet from American sociologist Crystal Fleming, who reminded her followers, "Please don't think being fully vaxxed is a license to go buck wild this summer. With that mentality, we'll never get out of this mess. Delayed gratification, y'all. Yes, things will gradually improve but if we're lucky, getting vaxxed now might save the summer of 2022.." Instead of focusing on the pandemic, the meme mixes the "fully vaxxed" part with references from popular books, movies, and tv shows.. And pretty much all of Twitter is getting in on it. We've put together some of our favorite referential tidbits (I mean, Wandavision, come on), but you can find a daunting albeit entertaining selection using that handy dandy Twitter search tool. They may not be the funniest tweets in the world, but they sure beat "experts" and their virtue signaling.

Journalist Gets Roasted After Claiming Horror Movies Can't Be Set In Space

What's up with Twitter these days? Are the blue checks running out of opinions? Because lately the takes have been extra bad, and today's main character is journalist @elle_hunt, who thinks a horror movie cannot be set in space. It all started when @elle_hunt tweeted a poll asking whether or not Alien was a horror movie, after which she followed up with the controversial bad take in question: 'My argument: horror cannot be set in space.' @elle_hunt got dragged so hard by so many people, that she accidentally made 'Alien' and 'Event Horizon' trend on Twitter. While many responded with stills from their favorite sci-fi horror films, others argued simply that 'space' is just a setting, and horror can exist in any setting, as long as there is fear. We've collected some of the spiciest and funniest replies to @elle_hunt's Twitter fail.

We're all familiar with the story of Mulanfrom the classic '90s Disneymovie, but what you probably didn't know is the lesser-known tale of Captain Li Shang questioning his sexuality. Being the '90s and all, people weren't as comfortable talking about different sexual orientations as we are now, but the story is finally coming out of the closet! (sorry.)

All jokes aside, please enjoy this hilarious retold version of Mulan!

Movies are really fun as long as you don't stop and smell the civilian casualties or take stock of how many fish Aquaman sends to their deaths or how many people Spider-Man lets get obliterated by a crane or how Ready Player One's Wade Watts is even less cool than we think. "Doctor" Jordan Breeding returns this week to point out all sorts of little depressing details that were snuck into movies that you probably never noticed!

Superhero movies are here to stay and so, apparently, are their super strange tropes like superwomen smiling after being punched, "serious" superhero films taking place in insane asylums, and longing for some romance always leading to a loss of superpowers. "Doctor" Jordan Breeding is technically out this week, but thankfully The Incredible Spider-Professor Angry Hands Hammer Man is here to save the day!

Rebel Wilson has made a name for herself with her brand of smart and bawdy humor. But did you know she also has a law degree? The certification seems to have come in handy. In this interview with Graham Norton, Rebel shares her hilarious (and smart) strategy of using dick jokes from other movies to prove The Hustle (Her remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) deserved a PG-13 rating. It's a win for women, and definitely a win for anyone who likes anatomical humor.

Twitter Has Meltdown Over The Lola Bunny Redesign

It's pretty easy to laugh at furries. The subculture's pervy fanaticism towards anthropomorphic animals can be a lot to take in. Recent movies such as Zootopia only seem to fan the flames of furry desire. Today, thanks to news of Space Jam: A New Legacy's redesign of the sultry Lola Rabbit, we're reminded that these creepy (and horny) tendencies were prevalent as early as 1996.

For those of you who were unaware, Lola Bunny, Bugs Bunny's love interest, is as curvy as she is good at basketball. The artists bestowed her with a pretty serious rack and child-birthing hips. These qualities alarmed the reboot's Director, Malcolm D. Lee, who told Entertainment Weekly that he wanted to wanted to update the look for a more modern and less sexualized appearance. "This is 2021," he said. "It's important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters." 

While we can definitely see where he's coming from (we should not be feeling jealous of a rabbit's assets), the response on Twitter has been mostly negative. And revealing. Seems like there are a whole lot of horny and nostalgic people who really, really hate Lola's less-sexy look and apparent breast reduction. While we're feeling kind of creeped out by how passionate the people are, it's definitely a cause that is both cringey and hilarious. We've put together some of the best responses in this gallery, but we're pretty certain this will be talked about for a while. Frankly, we're surprised that some incel hasn't made a Change.org petition demanding a return to tradition.
