Worst Superhero Movie Flops
From The Avengers to The Dark Knight to Captain America: Civil War, most superhero movies of the 21st century gave both fans and critics plenty of action and excitement. Unfortunately, not every superhero receives the best directors, writers, actors, and production value to lead to a worthy performance in the box office. The 21st century may have ushered in an era of over saturation for superhero movies, but that doesn't mean they were all good. Here’s a list of the worst superhero movie flops.
Brutal Zombie Kills
Zombie flicks are the best way to fantasize about killing thousands of one’s fellow humans without guilt or remorse. That kind of destruction, however, comes with collateral damage. Possessing no empathy, few manners, and a disregard for the welfare of humanity, when it’s time for the zombies to get their revenge, they become a little more creative than your average human. They tend to reveal what lies deepest inside us—in a strictly anatomical sense. Compiled below are some of the most brutal zombie kills: that intrusive, eviscerating style of murder that only a horde of zombies could perform.
Amazing Superhero Games
Because of their charismatic nature, superheroes are characters that often translate to many art forms such as film, TV—or in this case—video games. In fact, it’s pretty typical to want to take on the role of your favorite superhero, and video games give you the explicit tools to do so. However, superhero games have a reputation for being generally terrible. Therefore we have filtered through all the usual dreck and pulled out some of the best so that you may live out your hero fantasies in the digital realm.
Greatest Geek Girls
It’s pretty much undeniable that geek culture has become pop culture. Not that this is a bad thing—in fact, I’d argue it’s some sort of pseudo-renaissance for the stereotypical “geek.” Geekdom is no longer something to be ashamed of, but rather an element of mainstream pride. Watching a comic book movie in the early 2000s was a completely different experience than it is now. Celebrating your favorite superheroes has gone from niche to cool. With this new development in popular culture comes the inevitable new idols whom people have grown to love. In light of this change, a steadfast characteristic of geek culture prevails: the tendency to focus more on personality than vanity. The greatest geek girls combine intelligence, a love of all things nerdy, and—of course—bombshell beauty.
Scariest 70s Horror Movies
70s cinema became dominated by the American New Wave or New Hollywood. Lead by a new generation of baby boomer filmmakers, the American New Wave forever changed the world of cinema. These filmmaking mavericks took the authorial role away from the studios and placed it squarely in their own hands. Bringing new levels of sex and violence while pushing boundaries, the mavericks of the 70s also brought this approach to the horror arena, making some of the best films the genre had ever seen. Deviating from stock tropes and cliche norms, this new wave of horror films took cinematic terror in a new direction. Filmmakers like William Friedkin, Ridley Scott, David Cronenberg, Wes Craven, and John Carpenter rose to prominence and forever changed what audiences should be expect from film. Watch the scariest 70s horror movies and try to keep the lights off... if you can.
Best Old School Android Games
Miss the old times when consoles rocked this world? Sega, Nintendo, and Atari struggled in the market as designers invented more and more of those cute 8-bit games. Mario, Tanks, Contra Force, and Battletoads will be in our hearts forever. Of course, modern games have hundreds of awesome advantages.

This has been an incredible boon for comic fans since now they don’t have to wait for a con to ask their favorite writers and artists their burning questions.

Weird 'The Walking Dead' Merchandise

Some merchandise, however, is straight up weird. In fact, some of these The Walking Dead items are so weird that it's clear the manufacturers are banking on fandom rather than practicality.
Funniest Women in Hollywood
It’s an indisputable fact that the comedy world is primarily made up of male talent. I don’t know why this seems to have happened, but a large percentage of the premier comics have been men over the past several decades. However, the tides seem to be changing. Women are taking the comedy industry by storm, and the funniest women in Hollywood are slowly taking over television and the big screen.
Best Indie Games
Indie video games have become a staple of modern gaming since the mid-2000s. The success of games including Minecraft, World of Goo, and Terraria show that gaming has changed in big ways. Online methods of distributing games, paired with development tools that can be found the same way, leads to a situation where a publisher isn’t needed to put out an excellent game. Those who are passionate about making games can do so themselves without worrying about getting a financial backer to allow the game to see light. As such, the indie game industry has exploded and it can be hard to sift through and decide what games are bad, good, great, or outstanding. We present here a list of ten games that should be on any indie lover’s computer or console.
