The guy who has plans to sue Warner Bros. with his brother (who happens to be a lawyer) kicks off his fiery, inspired rant with just the kind of intro you'd expect...

My brother (who is a lawyer) and I are going to sue WB and DC for false advertising, misleading visual images and gaining a profit from us and millions others due to these acts. Our case has been accepted. We begin 11.08.16

And then he dives deep into all his reasoning for this madness...

"Movie Trailers are like food menus, they give you a preview of what your gonna get. If you look at a McDonald's menu and you choose to get your favourite burger, presented/showcased in a nice picture with pickles, chicken, mild cheese(you're favourite, in-fact...that's the only reason you're getting this burger...because you love mild cheese). So you use your hard worked money to pay for this burger, you get the burger, but only to find out that...this isn't the burger you ordered. Yes it has pickles and chicken...but...it doesn't have mild cheese...it has regular cheese.

Suicide Squad trailers showcased several SPECIFIC Joker scenes that I had to pay for the whole movie just so that I can go watch those SPECIFIC SCENES that WB/DC had advertised in their trailers and TV spots. These scenes are: When Joker banged his head on his car window, when Joker says, ''let me show you my toys'', when Joker punchs the roof of his car, when Joker drops a bomb with his face all messed up and says, ''BYE BYE!''. Non of these scenes were in the movie. I drove 300 miles to London to go watch these specific scenes they had explicitly advertised in their TV ads...and they didn't show them to me. Adding to this, they were also 2 specific Katana scenes they advertised that were also the reason I wanted to go watch the movie. These scenes were: Katana's eyes going black, and a slow motion shot of her and her sword taking souls...in a smokey kind of style. These scenes were advertised several times in the 1st trailer and many TV ads...but they didn't show it to me in the movie. I wasted alot of money paying and travelling to go watch this movie because of these specific scenes they had advertised to me and all of us saying, ''hey, check out our preview! this will all be in our movie, come watch it on the 5th!!''. All lies. I told the theatre about this unjust act and said I didn't get what I came here to see...can I have my money back. They laughed at me and kicked me out. So I'm now taking this to court. I want my refund, the trauma of being embarrassed as I was being kicked out and people laughing at me for wanting my refund, and also the 160 pounds of fuel money I used to drive to London from Scotland.

If you advertise something...give me what you have advertised. Period. This is becoming a habbit with movie studios, showing epic scenes in trailers...but their never shown in the movies. It's unjust.

I just want to say, join me if you feel the same way. Let's stop this nonsense of false bullshitery...and don't let them bribe you with their ''deluxe premium special directors gold extended edition supreme cut'' nonsense. You should get what they advertised as their first theatre showing and what you have paid for based on what they have showed you in their advertisements.

Our court process will begin on 11/08/16 this week."


Why so litigious, bruh?....



Alriiighty then...just wait for Jared Leto to lash out at this ridiculousness somehow.

Army of over a Thousand Pikachus Storms City in Japan

The Pokémon Company hosted the event, which happens every year in hopes to attract new visitors to the city. All I'm saying, is there better have been ALL the Pikachus for the catching, for Pokémon GO there.

A fire department hailing out of Needville, Texas was recently forced to remove their status as a PokéStop due to public safety concerns; and the events that ensued after (slashing of tires) are being blamed on Pokémon GO players. What do you guys think---this a fair and warranted claim by the fire department?

Unfortunately we don't know any of the finer details for the Mario and Pokémon titles, but exciting news nonetheless!

What do you guys think? The gym leaders were revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, when hundreds of players also gathered with high hopes that a legendary might be unleashed...no such luck, unfortunately. Some other details covered:

  • There are easter eggs that nobody's discovered yet
  • They’re planning ways to customize Pokestops
  • Pokemon Centers are coming
  • There will be more functionality added to gyms, though the specifics aren’t clear
  • Niantic says the game is at about 10% of what they want it to be
  • They’re still discussing breeding, but nothing concrete in the works yet
  • The legendary birds are tied to teams in some way, as the original designs implied
  • Yep, they know about the three-step glitch.
  • It sounds like we can’t expect legendaries until after the game has been released on all regions, which makes sense

Rumors surrounding the potential revival of 'The Tick' show have been running amok since 2014. 'The Tick' was created by Ben Edlund in 1986 as a mascot for the New England Comics comic book store chain. 



In 1988 the 'satirical' character was even given his own comic book series, which eventually went on to lead to an animated TV series on Fox in '94. 

Check out some photos that Amazon just released for the long awaited revival below!

Pokémon GO! Has Been out Less than a Month, and It's Already Inspired Dating Apps Like These

In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.

It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...

Two things that really got me going here: One, it's almost like he thought by showing the police he was playing Pokémon GO! that he thought it'd be all chill after. Second, I'm pretty sure he was still trying to catch whatever it was that got him in the accident, after being confronted by the cops for CRASHING into a cop car! Sheesh, man. Come on.

Such simpler times were had by all when we just stayed inside in our caves, minding our own business, unaware of the devastating madness just outside our doors.

Yep, it looks like 7 News in Boston reports the body was discovered floating in a brook at Rotary Park in Nashua earlier today. 

A Pokémon Go player had made the discovery while exploring the area, on the hunt to catch 'em all.

For those unaware, Pokémon GO has all but taken over the planet at this point. Phone batteries everywhere have taken a devastating hit. People wander the streets with lifeless eyes, tired legs (still getting used to the whole walking everywhere thing) on the hunt for another Magikarp (cause you need like 500 of those to get a damn Gyarados).

Seriously. Go outside, look around, and catch at least a dozen folks committed to leveling up, catching 'em all, and hitting every f**king Poké Stop between here and Narnia, while on their way to a potentially perpetual state of unemployment. Like some of us really should be getting back to work at this point...

And now to the hot topic of the day: when you first start up with this game, you've the option to side with Team Instinct, Valor, or Mystic:





Well, an inspired piece of banner artwork from DeviantArt’s Seoxys6 is serving as the rallying point for players out there that have grown tired of the senseless hostility between players on different teams. Team Harmony's message goes:

“Disturb not the harmony of Fire, Ice, or Lightning lest these three Titans wreck destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water’s Great Guardian shall arise to quell the fighting alone its song will fail. Thus the Earth shall turn to ash. O, Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three.”

Can this new, 'unofficial' team put an end to all the animosity, or nah? I appreciate the nod to the pokémon storyline -- in the movie Ash and friends have to do something with Lugia in order to restore order between the three legendary birds, Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres.



I don't know though; these reactions suggest we might yet be on an endless quest to attain peace between competing factions....
