Hello! ~ Book of Mormon Mean Girls Parody
“Level 17” Episode 1
A college student struggles to understand his destiny when time begins folding in on itself. The only way he can save his girl — is to save the world.
“Level 17” is about a young man called Ethan and the people of Adelaide who want to find out the truth about IOB Corp., but due to the military presence they can’t, so they create a resistance in spite of the fact that the city has been evacuated and is in lockdown. The resistance continues to fight until answers are found.
Conan reviews the new Splinter Cell: Blacklist game with a lot of help from Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling hip-hop recording artist J.Cole.
Before the so called “end of the world” according to the Mayan calendar in December 21, 2012, everyone is wondering if this will really happen. We are already imagining the scenarios from the famous apocalyptic movies we’ve seen: zombies, aliens and war are all got covered by Hollywood. After that date has passed by, either relief or nonchalance, a bunch of comedy movies about end of the world suddenly ascended. For this year alone, we’ve already seen three movies – It’s a Disaster, Rapture-Palooza and This Is The End. In few days, we’re going to see another one – The World’s End, the last film in director Edgar Wright’s Three Flavors Cornetto (the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy), which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. So, we look for other movies that fall to this genre of taking “end of the world” seriously funny. It’s not easy to find them – but you’ll be surprised that we completed the Top 10, at least. Here’s the Top 10 Comedy Movies About End of the World according to MovieHunger. Let us know if you agree on our list, or if you have some movies you can suggest.
That’s all for today, folks! Be sure to check back tomorrow for more movie-related geekery.
