RIP, Robin Williams.

What Dreams May Come was a great flick and you contributed to a big and wonderful filmography for many film lovers.

In honour, I will listen to Cobra Starship's "You Make Me Feel" which has a cameo by him and Zelda for some reason. 

PS: Robin Williams --- LoZ fan.

Celebrity deaths suck. Not only are you losing a fantastic entertainer, but so many social media slacktivists find a way to warp every tragedy into their own specialized brand of humanitarian guilt trips.

"This is why we need to take depression more seriously, guys."
"Oh sure, now you all suddenly care about mental illness."

Maybe take a moment to grieve over the loss of a great man before smugly using his death to feel better about yourself.

^They definitely take the wrong side in which they show what it is a serious issue to the public. In many cases they are the ones that end up being the problem of why people don't care or understand how dengereous depression can be, and has been.

I just watched the ep of Louis where Louis and Robin go to a comedians funeral to pay their respects. They're the only ones that show up. At the end, they both agree to go to the other's funeral if they die first.

For some reason this feels like the saddest things I've read about Robin Williams: "Though a tabletop fan with a multitude of Warhammer 40K armies, he never got to play any of them."

Guy had enough money to fulfill several big geek dreams, but was too famous to enjoy them to the fullest (as in: together with other fans). That's sad :(

85 year old chooses to end her life before dementia kicks in to spare herself the indignity.

After seeing what dementia can do.... hell, I'd do it too.

Wasn't sure if we have a movie news thread, but I couldn't believe the news when I heard this announcement today:
http://www.superherohype.com/news/313829-an-underworld-reboot-is-on-the-way

Keep in mind Underworld: Awakening came out only two years ago and the original Underworld first premiered in 2003. I just wish Hollywood would let these movie franchises rest when they exhaust their ideas. Reboot shouldn't be their go to push button.

How do you even "reboot" Underworld?

Underwoirld done in a different style is just another brand of vampires vs. werewolves.

Werewolves and vampires hide underground from humans who kill them and sell their flesh as fine cuisine - mainly sushis.

Probably.  And with a market saturation of vampires/occult, now's the time to strike since they were too early for the first wave that was, unfortunately, kicked up with the Twilight Saga.

Samsung Gear VR hands-on: Note 4 goes 3D with Oculus http://wp.me/pj722-1rw1

I don't have a Samsung smart phone or any smart phone for that matter, but I would like to see this tech in action. I like how the phone just snaps into the Occulus Rift headpiece and it becomes instant VR. I wonder how disorienting it is to play/watch something on this device after a lengthy matter of time.

As I understand it, many of the Occulus Rift prototypes use a display from a Samsung phone.  Not the whole phone, of course.  But if you already have the appropriate phone then maybe that thing isn't as crazy as it sounds...

In other related phone news... people are lined up for the iPhone 6 already in NYC. The debut event isn't supposed to take place until September 9th and yet here are these Apple fans devoted in sleeping bags and such. Pictures included in the link.
