16 Of The Coolest Swords From Pop Culture

Swords - what's there to say about them? Nobody uses them anymore, which is a real shame. Swords remind us of an age when men were men, and they focused on really manly things, like chivalry, honor and killing a man with a single blow. Alas, those days are gone, and swords have retired from the battlefield.

But they do live on in one place - our hearts and minds. There's something innately satisfying about the simplicity and elegance of a sword, and the ritual of one-on-one combat, of people testing their mettle mano y mano. To that end, they live on in our culture, and by extension in our...

Thundercats
Thundercats ended about 20 years ago, so it's about time that a reboot is in the works. However, many probably didn't think the show would be so epically presented.

In a trailer released at Wondercon, we are treated to a climactic battle between the forces of Thundera, lead by Lion-O's father Claudus, and the mutants of Plun-Darr. It immediately draws comparison to The Two Towers - until the robots with lasers show up - and the stage is set for Lion-O's journey to vanquish the evil Mumm-ra once and for all.

Watch the trailer below, and let us know if you will be watching the new series!

Usually whenever someone meets me and learns about my extensive geekdom, they ask how often I get hit on by slobbering geek boys. The answer is: a lot. Let's face it, we geek girls have existed all along, but until the past few years we've seemed more like a mystical creature.

With the rise of video games and comic book movies as "cool" in the mainstream, there have been more girls willing to come out about their love for Guitar Hero or Superman. It's no longer a badge of weird, even to our fellow gals, and it's almost become an attractive feature for a girl to be able to beat you in Wi...

Give It Up For The Cartoon Network!

Family Guy
On the Cartoon Network, there are so many programs that appeal to just about every type of animation connoisseur. Late nights you can catch re-runs of "Family Guy" or get thugged out and righteous by watching Riley and Huey on "The Boondocks."

It was created in 1992 and was drawn up as an outlet for classic animations from the Turner Broadcastings film vault such as "Tom & Jerry" and "The Flintstones."

Has Hollywood Run Out of Ideas?

Underdog Movie
There no longer seems to be much originality in Hollywood. When did the ability to sit down and write a captivating screenplay from scratch go out of style? It seems that Hollywood is stuck on turning cartoons and video games into movies. And there's the predatory sequel often lurking and waiting to be as bad as the original movie or better, if we're lucky.

Cartoon Disasters

Talk about digging something out of the woodwork. In the summer of 2007, the 1964-1973 cartoon "Underdog" was brought to life on the big screen, and we have to wonder why? Kids probably enjoyed it, and "Und...
