As you know, Netflix has to periodically change out the movies and TV shows they offer and it’s that time of the month where we say goodbye to some movies and TV shows and hello to others.

As usual, there’s a little good and a little bad in each category.

On the departing list, there’a a lot of Barney going away but we’re also losing Serenity, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Apocalypse Now. However, Snowpiercer, The Rocketeer, and the original Total Recall are being added, so that’s cool.

If you want to watch any of the stuff that’s being removed, today is your last chance.

You can see the full list of changes after the break.

PeeWee Herman and Jimmy Fallon

Paul Reubens appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week to promote the shiny new remastered version of Pee-wee’s Playhouse on DVD and Blu-ray from Shout Factory. While he was chatting with Fallon, he announced that a new Pee-wee Herman movie is coming to theaters. Judd Apatow is producing the movie, and they’ll start filming in February 2015. Thanks, Paul Reubens, for keeping my childhood alive forever!

Watch the interview after the break along with his redub of the Age Of Ultron trailer.

I’d love to tell you that I saw Entertainment Weekly‘s special Terminator: Genisys coverage and did a happy little fangirl dance. It’s not out of the realm of possibility. I mean, I like the Terminator franchise. I liked the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Heck, I even like Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation. That’s how forgiving I am.

But, I may have just hit the “Are you kidding ME?!?!” wall with the news of what producers David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and director Alan Taylor have planned storywise for Genisys. It’s…well, to call it a reboot is like saying remodeling a house from top to bottom but keeping the paint the same color is a “touch up”.

Since it containers spoilers, I’ll put it in after the break. Head there if you want to know more.

Tommy Chaos Stacey Danger

Were you disappointed in Transformers: Age of Extinction? Don’t worry, true believers! Director Michael Lukk Litwak and his talented team have brought us what we desperately needed: an award-winning romantic adventure film that features dinosaurs with frickin’ lasers on their heads. The movie is entitled The Life and Death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger and, according to its director, was “once described by a drunk person as ‘a cross between Blue Valentine and Jurassic Park.’ ”

Check it out after the break!

You guys, this Super Mario World script is really, really bad. Even Max Landis admits it’s horrible. He wrote the script when he was just 19, but he had the cojones to post it on his site (which you have to admire) along with a foreword detailing the script’s many issues. Let’s start with it being a whopping 435 pages long and that it contains a ridiculous character list that includes Banjo and Kazooie. This is definitely in “so bad it’s good” territory.

Read Landis’s forward after the break.

Warner Bros. Pictures has set up a special site called For Your Consideration designed to promote its films to Academy Awards voters. One of the things they think voters should consider nominating is a Best Original Song contender from The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. The song is The Last Goodbye which is written by screenwriters Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh, and actor Billy Boyd who also sings the tune.

You might remember him singing All Shall Fade in the original trilogy which may have brought tears to your eyes. Expect the same this time around, and have a box of tissues at the ready.

The first Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer leaked earlier today and was quickly pulled. Apparently, that prompted Marvel to say “f*ck it” and release the real deal. If you haven’t seen the high-res version head after the break post haste.

UPDATE: Marvel’s response to the leak earlier today was “priceless” as one of our Facebook commenters put it. You can see that after the break as well.
