I’ll admit that I’ve been on the fence about X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but this new trailer has rekindled a spark of hope.

I LOVE the moment between Mystique and Wolverine. It seems like we’re going to get some real interaction between the characters with our dose of insane action and cool special effects.

Check it out after the break and enjoy.

Harry Potter reading list

Thanks to some amazing and very resourceful Harry Potter fans, you can now study at Hogwarts through a new website called Hogwarts Is Here. The website is a mix of an RPG and a MOOC (massive open online course). So, it’s a RPMOOC, which I’m pretty sure is a first.

There’s no Sorting Hat here. You get to pick your own house and then it’s off to school with you.

Here’s a snippet from the site, specifically the Academics page:

Students are now able to enroll at Hogwarts, beginning as a first year taking necessary courses like Charms and Potions, and progressing through years until you complete all seven years of academics. All textbooks required for your courses have also been digitized and are now available for online reading, such as A Standard Book of Spells and A Beginner’s Guide to Transfiguration.

Each course is divided up into nine weeks (lessons), where you will study the material provided and complete the work pertaining to that week’s lesson. You will have actual homework assignments, essays, quizzes and tests all graded by Hogwarts professors who have been fully trained on this new muggle technology.

You can write for The Daily Owl, sign up for the Quidditch Club and even get a vault at Gringotts which you can fill with money from doing assignments.

In other words, it’s amazing and I’m hoping it gets a lot of new students.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones brought an event that many fans of the series have been waiting to see: the death of a horrible, awful, no good character. Goodbye, Joffrey Baratheon and good riddance. Dorkly captured the sentiments of various groups’ reactions to “The Lion and The Rose” perfectly because it was all more or less unanimous.

Happy as I was to see Joffrey bite it, I do have to compliment Jack Gleeson for his portrayal of the despicable character. He played the heck out of the worst king Westeros has ever seen, and it can’t have been an easy burden to bear. On top of that Gleeson seems to be a super nice guy that loves cuddling puppies.

See the entire comic after the break (the last couple of panels are a tiny bit NSFW).

shirtless bigby

I don’t know how someone found this shirtless Bigby bug while playing The Wolf Among Us, but I want to know how to recreate it.

Maybe with Hugh Jackman.

Enjoy the video after the break. I know I did.

hishe frozen

One of the worst aspects about Frozen is the parents’ horrible parenting decisions. Why did they think it would be a good idea to shut Elsa away from the world and make her scared of her own powers? This video from How It Should Have Ended imagines a different universe where Elsa leaves Arendelle to join the X-Men. It’s rather fabulous.

Watch the alternate ending after the break.

It’d be a whole different ballgame with Pokémon in the league. Micah Coles has redesigned the logos of NBA teams to include different Pokémon characters. You’ve got to admit, some of these look at least as good if not better than their real world counterparts.

See more logos after the break…

disney firefly 1

Once Joss Whedon signed on to work with Marvel with films, I couldn’t help but let my mind wander to a happy place that involved a merging of Firefly and Disney. It could never actually happen since Firefly is a touch violent and has, you know, prostitutes—but a girl can dream.

Artist Stephen Byrne apparently had similar thoughts when he created this precious art featuring the crew of Serenity drawn in Disney animated movie style. The little River Tam is my favorite.

See some close-ups from the illustration after the break.
