Check Out How The Rock Spent His Easter (Spoiler: Hilarious)

Never say Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is too big for family time.

He spent Easter yesterday chasing around his daughter in a Pikachu outfit. Cue the “AWWs”.

The first time Jasmine’s favorite character, Pikachu came to visit her months ago she was only crawling. For Easter Sunday @laurenhashianofficial and I thought, Pikachu should make a special visit once again. Well, Pikachu didn’t account for the fact that now Jazzy RUNS and for 2hrs straight she wants to play her new favorite game, “I run away and you chase me Pikachu. And you’re not allowed to take a break until I go night night”. At the end of the vid you can hear her yell, “Peekyu” because she can’t say, Pikachu. I’m tired, today’s my only day off, it’s 118 degrees in this costume and Hobbs keep trying to p*ss on my leg. And I luv every minute of it. Bring it on. It’s what daddy’s do. Happy Easter to you guys and enjoy your families. #Rockachu #DaddyPuttinInWork #TheGameThatNeverEnds #PikachuLooksBloated

The First Trailer for The Last Jedi

I know this is Good Friday, but it has just become a VERY Good Friday. You see, Star Wars Celebration has been going on all this week, and it was pretty much universally accepted by everyone that we would be getting our first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi during the event.

Well, it happened.

That’s awfully considerate of Luke to remind us all to breathe while we’re watching that.

Nothing more really needs to be said here, does it?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes to theaters on December 15th.

Music You Can Use

It’s been awhile since we shared with you some of the new music we’re loving, and that’s why on the April 13th, 2017 episode we did just that with our segment “Music You Can Use”

First up was our review of the new album from Mastodon, Emperor of Sand. If you haven’t heard this yet, you’re one of the few, because it ended up being the band’s first number 1 album.

This is the single, “Show Yourself”

Then we took a listen to some new singles, including one from Incubus called “Nimble Bastard”. This will be off their 8th studio album, fittingly called 8and according to some leaked photos, we should be hearing a track on it featuring Skrillex, and Deftones’ Chino Moreno.

We move on to a band local to our area, Motionless in White. Their new album, Graveyard Shift, is looking to be a monster, including Korn’s Jonathan Davis on a track.

Check out the first track, “Loud”

Seether was the next band on the docket with the song “Let You Down”, off their May 12th release Poison the Parish. Neat fact about the album name, singer Shaun Morgan got it from his hatred of social media celebrities, like the Kardashians. Can’t say we blame him.

Finally we rounded things out with the latest from Papa Roach. New album, Crooked Teeth, hits your hands May 19th, and according to Jacoby Shaddix he’ll be rapping on at least half of it.

This is the song, “Help”.

So now that you heard the goods, hear what we had to think of them on this very music-induced episode.

United We…Get Dragged Off a Plane

This is the video everybody’s been talking about, of a man being dragged off the plane for his refusal to leave due to their not being enough seats for a United personnel to be aboard. This led Dr. David Dao bloodied and, rightfully, embarrassed. After just apologizing for having to re-accommodate people, United CEO, Oscar Munoz, responded with this.

“This situation was unfortunately compounded when one of the passengers we politely asked to deplane refused, and it became necessary to contact Chicago Aviation Security Officers to help. While I deeply regret this situation arose, I also emphatically stand behind all of you, and I want to commend you for continuing to go above and beyond to ensure we fly right.”

Surely there could be more to this story than what we saw, but let’s face it, video is way more convincing than a person’s word.

Thor RagnaROCKS!

I know, that headline is super cheesy. But guess what? I do not care. Thor: Ragnarok, the third movie in the Thor franchise and the 456th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is destined to be one of the most zany, wacky, fun movies in recent memory, I guarantee it. The people behind making the movie have described it as a buddy cop movie featuring Thor and Hulk. You can count me completely in with a cherry on top!

Behold our first look!

I like this teaser! *smashes computer* Another!

There’s a lot more going on in this trailer though. Like, okay, is Hela “worthy” then? Is that why she’s able to catch Mjolnir and then shatter it into a billion pieces? Does Thor lose his powers without his hammer? Why isn’t Loki pretending to be Anthony Hopkins anymore? And where is Anthony Hopkins? Is this a literal Ragnarok that marks the end of Asgard (sure looks like it based on all the fire)? HOW DID HULK MAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO ANOTHER PLANET IN A QUINJET? Jeff Goldblum? So many questions!

All our questions will be answered when Thor: Ragnarok arrives in theaters on November 3rd.

Have You Hit Your Peak? Find Out

In the April 6th, 2017 episode of our show we shared with you this chart that tells you when you’ll peak for certain things, such as remembering names, finding that special person, or the best chance you have to run a marathon.

Now, of course we couldn’t go over all of them, and that’s why we present you with (Cue Chris Jericho) THE LIST…uh, actually the chart.

I Am Heath Ledger Trailer

Heath Ledger played a groundbreaking role in Brokeback Mountain, and gave us a spine chilling performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight, so it only seems fitting that his life is documented in a movie.

Get the tissues ready for I Am Heath Ledger debuting May 17th on Spike.

Terrifying First Trailer for IT Debuts

First, there was Stephen King’s horrifying novel in 1986. Then, there was the nightmare-inducing miniseries in the 1990s starring Tim Curry that haunted me for years. Now, IT is returning in a remake that looks pants-crappingly terrifying in every possible way.

This is just the first teaser. Just two minutes and thirty seconds, and I already am afraid to go to sleep (or stay awake for that matter)! Scared as I am to actually see this movie, this might be exactly what we need to bring horror back to its truest, most glorious form. I’m looking forward to it, and then to never feeling safe again.

IT floats into theaters on September 8th.

It’s Mostly Iron Man at Center-Stage in the New Trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man is finally coming home to the MCU in just a few short months in the duly-named Spider-Man: Homecoming, and we’ve been treated to a brand new trailer today to keep our hype senses tingling!

This trailer is definitely an improvement over the above-average-at-best first one, but just as I expressed in my reaction to that first trailer, I’m beginning to worry that Marvel seems to think that the problem with Sony’s Spider-Man movies since Spider-Man 2 is that they didn’t have enough Iron Man in them, because man are they loading up on Tony Stark in this. Iron Man is now responsible for giving Peter his suit, and also taking it away from him as some form of discipline. The new suit also can’t apparently just be a suit, but it now also includes a bunch of extra Stark tech because apparently Spider-Man isn’t good enough on his own. Iron Man is also seen helping Spider-Man with various day-saving activities, because Peter can’t be a hero on his own either.

Now, I’m not saying this is going to break the movie, but I do find it strange and a bit disheartening that Marvel can’t give their (arguably) number one hero his own self-contained story. They either feel the character alone can’t produce a hit film because he’s been tarnished by Spider-Man 3 and the Amazing films (which, okay, good point), or they feel the need to OVER-EMPHASIZE that Spider-Man is now in the Marvel Universe and we’re all too understand that fact unless Tony and Cap and Hawkeye all show up in some form or another, which is going to get annoying fast when the movie becomes a constant string of “Oh, hey, it’s that thing I remember from Avengers!” or “Look! It’s that guy from Thor!”

My point is this: Guys, it’s Spider-Man. Just let him do his thing. He’ll be fine.

Spider-Man: Iron Man Coming—er, I mean, Spider-Man Homecoming swings into theaters on July 17th.

Call of Duty May be Going Back to WWII

(Photo: The Family Video Gamers)

That leaked image right there is making gamers go into a frenzy, speculating the next Call of Duty game could be based around WWII.

It would definitely be a change of pace with the last couple of them being based in the future, but wouldn’t be too surprising after the success Activision had with the WWI based Battlefield game.

Now, that image wasn’t the only one leaked by the The Family Video Gamers YouTube Channel, so take a gander below, and get hyped!
