Reporters Can’t Pronounce Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o was just named People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person of 2014. Lupita is unquestionably beautiful but her name isn’t easy to pronounce which made for a difficult day for our nation’s news anchors.


Everything Wrong With Spider-Man 2 In 11 Minutes Or Less

Spider-Man 2 was considered by many, at the time it was released, to be one of the best superhero films ever made. It’s still pretty good, but modern superhero movies have stolen some of its spotlight. And no matter how much you love it, yep… it still has plenty of sins. PG-13 language.

  1. I usually hate those “Everything Wrong With…” videos but that Spider-Man 2 one was pretty good and it makes the movie look about as bad as parts 1 and 3. But I’m also someone who happens to enjoy Webb’s version of Spidey over Raimi’s and would pick Garfield and Stone over Maguire and Dunst any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Can’t wait to check out ASM2 next Friday!

    • Same, I much prefer the new ones over the horribly cheesy original trilogy.

      Also, have fun at TASM2, it’s great. Plus it’s earned biggest opening day and biggest opening weekend records so far this year, far outdoing Cap 2′s opening day and opening weekend around the world. Best CBM of the year (so far) for me.

      • I can’t wait for one of those videos for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, plenty of sins there.

  2. But there was so much wrong with EWW’s video.
    Its as if they didnt research the characters before making the video.
    Such as Spidey recovering so quickly. He has super human healing. He heals from deadly wounds within hours. There was plenty more but i am not going to list them all.

  3. Justin Bieber copied Luke Skywalker’s hairstyle 30 years later.

  4. Isn’t the guy in the the Batman Chronicles teaser the “king of Joker cosplay”?
