According to Hollywood folklore, the movie Predator started off as something of a joke. The concept was that since Rocky Balboa had managed to win the Cold War, there wasn’t anyone left on Earth for him to fight in the ring, so it might be time to bring in someone from beyond the stars to spar with the Italian Stallion.
And you thought Pauly’s robot in Rocky IV was ridiculous.
Thank God they made a better movie out of the idea instead.
For a movie that sounded like it was a bad joke…Sylvestor Stalone’s Rocky training the son of Carl Weather’s Apollo Creed…Creed has been getting an incredible amount of buzz. Oscar buzz even. Jenny says it is fantastic, so I might have to check it out. (I have seen six more Rocky movies than Jenny, so I might have a bit of a different perspective.)

Movies are magic. So many iconic moments. Be careful. The photos here may diminish the magic. Once you see Joker and Batman having a quick coffee talk with Tim Burton, the magic fades a little. More after the break!
Anybody can be Thor. But can it takes a creative genius to pull off Ronald McDonald Thor! I hear you like cosplay. I hear you like geek mashups. What about some freaking cosplay mashups? We got it here at Gabbing Geek!
WOWZERS! You’ve got to check out makeup artist Natasha Morley (@chibinat) and how she can transform herself into some of our favorite heroes, villains, and monsters! If I had half of these skills I don’t think I would take so long to get ready in the morning – I hate how I always poke my eye out with mascara. AmIRight ladies? I don’t know how she has the patience to sit there and do this to herself, but we’re sure glad she does, because it’s absolutely stunning. Click after the break to see some of our favorite transformations like GROOT, ULTRON, and so much more.
Her’s nothing like going to the Phoenix Comicon and seeing a Mr. & Mrs. Predator. I wonder what kind of clicking noises they spout at each other when someone’s forgotten to take out the trash?!….or in the bedroom. I’ll let you stew on that for a minute. 🙂
