Entertainment Link-Off: Over the Wall

caity lotzThe weekend is finally here! Time to sit back and check out the new releases like Dirty Grandpa or The 5th Wave in cinemas. Based on the reviews though, perhaps Netflix and chill doesn’t seem so bad now. Anyway, Legends of Tomorrow premiered earlier this week on The CW and the show is off to a solid start. Heck, just seeing Caity Lotz on the screen is totally worth devoting my time to the show. 

After the jump, Avatar 2 is no long battling Star Wars for the box office crown, Oscars shake-up is on its way due to some recent controversy, Kylo Ren goes undercover, the return of Key and Peele and Happy Australia Day from Deadpool! Continue reading

Suppose that you want something a little smaller, faster and more nimble. You would be looking for a YT class Corellian freighter, perhaps even the Millennium Falcon. Fortunately, building a Millennium Falcon is much more affordable and operating it is a positive bargain.

To find out how much your own Millennium Falcon will set you back, our friends at Varooma have put together a handy infographic for you.

Entertainment Link-Off: In with the New

Olivia Munn Ride Along PremiereAnother week into the new year and hopefully your new year resolutions are still intact. If not, perhaps a video in this link-off will help you manage that! It’s a quiet weekend at the box office with only the release of The Forest. Perhaps it’s worth checking out those awards contenders that are slowly getting wider releases this month. Anyway, let’s kick this off with Olivia Munn at the premiere for Ride Along 2. Looks like it will be a good year ahead for her as she is also set to appear in Zoolander 2 and some superhero flick called X-Men: Apocalypse.

After the jump, don’t expect a Teen Titans show anytime soon, a few tidbits on Fuller House, there is a backstory to stormtrooper TR-8R, Michael Bay ain’t done with Transformers yet, Will Smith is a little sad about Independence Day 2, mark your calendars for Daredevil and Game of Thrones and finally, the best driving lesson courtesy of Conan, Ice Cube and Kevin Hart.

It sounds long but these make for incredibly easy viewing.
