Ecto Coolest: A Documentary About The World’s Biggest Ecto Cooler Fans.

I've always been a huge fan of Ecto Cooler, and I'm thrilled to see it finally return this year, in conjunction with the new Ghostbusters movie. After having vanished like a from store shelves over a decade ago, Slimer's trademark beverage had been long overdue for a return. What really surprised me, however, is I recently learned that there are two guys who are even bigger fans of Ecto Cooler than I am. Check out this new documentary about World's Biggest Ecto Cooler Fans, Mort and Gort Torpentine, to see just how much of an incredible impact Slimer's green juice actually had on their lives.

Make Suggestions For Our Upcoming Underwater Pixel Poster!

Over the years, many people have suggested we create an underwater themed pixel poster, so I'm happy to announce that we're finally making it happen! Having released our "8-bit Worlds Collide" and "Pixels in Space" pixel posters, Pox and I decided it was time to take our pixels into the deep blue sea. As always, we wanna give all of you a chance to help create it. It's a blast to see what aquatic ideas all of you come up with each time we do one of these, and we're sure you'll have some fantastic suggestions for this next poster.

Be sure to make as many suggestions as you can come up with; the more we receive, the more likely it is that we'll include some of 'em on this poster. Also, if you can, please make sure your suggestions have something to do with WATER.

In Defense Of Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare.

Blumhouse - In Defense Of Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare - by Roger Barr

Most of you know how Freddy Krueger is my all-time favorite horror movie monster - whether it was him terrifying people in the first A Nightmare on Elm Street, or making audiences laugh in the later films, I remained a die-hard "Fred Head" throughout. Much like my previous article for Blumhouse, in which I attempted to defend the much-maligned Poltergeist III, I've now turned my attention to what was one of the most poorly received Elm Street flicks. I'm speaking of Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.

While many fans didn't enjoy it, I've always had a soft spot for the sixth installment in which the filmmakers attempted to give the Springwood Slasher one crazy send-off. It's a nonsensical horror-comedy movie chock full o' laughs that never takes itself too seriously, and I think fans would enjoy more it if they could see it that way. What do you think? Check out the article and lemme know what your thoughts on the movie are. Don't forget the power glove!

In Defense Of Poltergeist III.

Blumhouse - In Defense Of Poltergeist III - by Roger Barr

I've always been a fan of the Poltergeist films. The original is an absolute classic, and the sequels, while admittedly not as good, were still entertaining. That said, the third installment was always considered the worst of the original trilogy (and rightfully so), but I still it has merit. Despite some hilariously bad acting and a flimsy storyline, Poltergeist III has a handful of fun scenes and enough creative camera tricks that make it worth watching. With that in mind, I've written a new article for Blumhouse in which I attempt to make a case for Poltergeist III. Hope you enjoy it, and may all skeletons in horror films from this day forward have big, bushy mustaches!

Gollum, Captain America: Civil War, & Keith Apicary!

Well here's something different. I was fortunate enough to capture Gollum and Smeagol on video as they debated about whether or not they should watch the new Captain America: Civil War movie. Personally, I thought it was a no-brainer to go see the movie, but Gollum isn't so sure. Check it out:

Now, when I think of Gollum, there's only one human that comes to my mind: Keith Apicary. I don't mean to insult Gollum like that, as I'm sure he doesn't have anywhere near the kind of pungent body odor that Keith has, but they certainly do look alike. Anyway, this past week, I went over to Keith Apicary's house to play the arcade game Confidential Mission with him. It's a game where you play two secret agents who basically have to shoot everything in sight with their hand guns - including tanks. Totally logical, right? Lucky for you, you can watch the two us prove that we're the worst agents in the history of the world by checking out our new video:

I'm sure I'll be shooting more Keith's Arcade episodes in the near future, as he's constantly stealing my things and forcing me to come over to his house to retrieve them - but only after I play some old video games with him. Until then, I'll continue to try getting a restraining order approved.

By the way, while Smeagol / Gollum are still deciding on it, I recently saw Captain America: Civil War, and absolutely loved it. I need to watch it again to officially decide where it ranks in against other Marvel movies, but it's waaaaay up there. Such a perfect blend of action, drama, and comedy. It might even be my new favorite Marvel flick. I'd love to talk with you guys about it more, so drop a comment below to let me know what you think of it and let's blab about all the characters and what went down. Also, if you're going to post any spoilers, please be sure to say so beforehand in your comment, just in case somebody reading it hasn't seen the movie yet.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed these latest two videos. Thanks for watching!

A Big Godball Update! Plus, A Trucking Movies Podcast Discussion!

GODBALL - Now available for PC and Mac on Adult Swim Games!

In case you missed the announcement, we recently released a new game for Adult Swim called GODBALL that we spent over a year developing. The best way to describe it is pinball meets Sim City meets Rampage, and we're really happy with how the game turned out. There's even a built-in level editor so you can create your own cities to annihilate! You can learn the full story behind making Godball HERE.

Now for the big update news; when Godball first went live, it was only available for PC users, but I'm happy to announce that we just launched a build for Mac users as well! So download Godball now (it's free!) and destroy some of the most beautiful cities in the world, because that's exactly what an omnipotent being would do in his/her spare time, right? Right.

I really hope you all enjoy Godball, as we put a ton of work into making it happen. If you know anything about game design, isometric style games are not easy to make, so kudos again to Jacob and Pox for working with me to make it happen. Be sure to let us know what you think of Godball once you've had a chance to play it. It takes a lil' while to get acclimated to, but once you learn the game and start upgrading your stats, you'll see just how crazy and chaotic the action can get. Enjoy!

In other news, I was recently invited by Brianne and Stacy, the lovely ladies of the Six Degrees of Feature Film podcast, to join them for a discussion about some of my favorite movies involving trucking. Naturally, the discussion led to us talking about flicks like Over The Top, Maximum Overdrive, and Big Trouble in Little China. We also went on to discuss some of my favorite arm wrestling scenes in movies, along with some other fun things, so have a listen if it sounds like something up your alley.
