Jacobin mag: John Oliver Should Be More Like Mad Max.
LorenzoAE: John Oliver isn't Mad Max: He's Part of the Problem. "Oliver isn’t going to be Mad Max, nor will he be Howard Beale, Eugene Debs, or Spartacus. He’s going to be John Oliver—an employee of the Time Warner media empire who’s valued highly enough as a corporate asset to make millions of dollars a year. If he or any other celebrity threatened the corporate bottom line rather than serving it, he wouldn’t have his own show, he’d be stuck writing media criticism for free on a WordPress site. If that isn’t obvious, then someone needs to read more Chomsky and watch less John Oliver."

Law & Order credits style would be perfect for a spin-off called Law & Order: Hell’s Kitchen. People raved about the grounded, crime drama-style and tone of Daredevil, and so giving the series the opening credits of one of the most iconic crime procedurals of all-time just makes sense. You can just imagine scenes from the show beginning with that signature “donk-donk” sound.

Video: 8-Bit Shawshank Redemption

CineFix reimagines the plot the classic 1994 prison drama film The Shawshank Redemption as an old-school 8-bit video game from the 1980s.

Video: LEGO: First Person Shooter

Back in the mid nineties, Lego released their first 3D video game.  Since then, Lego video games have become a genre standard. There are now countless Lego video games out there, both good and bad, but the one game everyone wants from Lego will most likely never be made as it’s too violent for the kid friendly brick building company.
