Robocop Drinking Game with Kevin Brueck – Movie Buzz
Kevin Brueck joins CineFix to get violently drunk to a violent movie: the classic Robocop.
Cinefix Reacts To Lex Luthor Casting
The news that that the actor best known for playing Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network has been cast to play another genius billionaire in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie.
What do you think of this bit of casting news? Do you think one turn as a billionaire deserves another? Who would you pick instead? Or who do YOU think would have been an (even) worse choice?
Egg Russian Roulette with David Beckham
Jimmy and David Beckham take turns smashing a carton of eggs on their heads. Eight are hard-boiled, four are not.

Craigslist Missed Connections with Jimmy Kimmel & Alison Brie
The “missed connections” section on Craigslist is filled with messages from people who met or saw someone they were attracted to, but for whatever reason didn’t get their contact info. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we thought we could shine a light on some of these missed connections with the help of the lovely Alison Brie.
Debuting this week at NYCC, the first in a series of Hipster Redesigns of the best families in comics. First up: The X-Men.
Had a blast doing this one and loved redesigning all of the costumes. It was super complicated to color, but all in all, I’m happy with how it turned out.
Second up, debuting at NYCC this week, is the Bat-Family.
When I came up with the idea of doing a set of these, the one I was most excited to do was this one. I designed the costumes first, I did the layout first, and then I drew the X-Men piece cause suddenly the idea of doing the Bat-Family piece was terrifying. And once I had the X-Men piece done, I was still scared. It took about two to three times longer to pencil, but the coloring was faster, having learned a lot from the previous piece. Hope you dig!
