  • The Bruce Lee Family Plans to Open "Action Museum"

    Posted on November 10, 2011 by PopFunk

    Hopes were high when news of the Bruce Lee Action Museum (creatively acronym'd, BLAM) were announced earlier this year. Unfortunately, by June the original plan to turn the icon's former Hong Kong residence into a memorializing museum was scrapped, leaving the project without a home. Until last week, that is. On November 3, the Bruce Lee family proposed the BLAM museum project to the Seattle City Council. Lee had lived in the city throughout the '50s and '60s, and was subsequently buried in Seattle's Lakeview Cemetery after his death in 1973. The proposal cites a potential development location as the Chinatown-International district. Though the city is still waiting on a full proposal (including site availability and funding strategies), the likelihood of this deal going through appears promising, if the enthusiasm of Council president Richard Conlin is any indication. "It's amazing how popular Bruce Lee is when you go to other countries. This is an astonishing opportunity for a great tourist attraction." According to the BLAM manifesto, the future museum will include "exhibits ranging from movie memorabilia to training equipment to writings and photographs to personal memorabilia," as well as "a permanent exhibition space, a gallery for visiting exhibitions, a store, a theater, a meditation space, an outdoor training area, a research library, and a cafe." While it may still be years before we can visit the Bruce Lee Action Museum, Popfunk is currently memorializing the martial arts legend on a series of officially licensed Bruce Lee shirts. And just for good measure, here's Bruce Lee schooling Chuck Norris: Read More

  • Funny Halloween Movies

    Posted on October 27, 2011 by PopFunk

    For those of us that love being scared to death, the weeks leading to Halloween are the best for watching horror movies that make us jump out of our skin. However, those scaredy-cats that refuse to watch frightening flicks can only look forward to the funny Halloween movies. Of all the funny Halloween movies out there, we are going to focus on one of our favorites- Army of Darkness. Army of Darkness ShirtsArmy of Darkness ShirtsArmy of Darkness Shirts Army of Darkness ShirtsArmy of Darkness ShirtsArmy of Darkness Shirts For those of you who have not seen it, Army of Darkness is the third and final installment in the Evil Dead trilogy by director Sam Raimi. Unlike the other two in the series, The Army of Darkness is all-out comic parody. In the film, a discount store employee named Ash is transported back to a medieval castle plagued by monstrous forces in the year 1300 AD. Our hero, stranded with only his car, shotgun and chainsaw, is soon discovered and imprisoned, mistaken as an enemy from a rival kingdom. After proving his merit however, he decides to help the kingdom retrieve the Necronomicon, a magical book needed to dispel the evil forces as well as return him to his own time. Ash accidentally releases an army of skeletons (the Army of Darkness) in his quest for the book, resulting in a battle. The trilogy was responsible for Bruce Campbell’s status as a cult icon and hero to horror fan masses. With memorable quotes such as “This is my boom stick” and “Well Hello Mr. Fancy Pants”, The Army of Darkness is an underrated classic. The fusion or horror and slapstick make The Army of Darkness a must see when watching funny Halloween movies. Check out this video made by one Army of Darkness fan with the best one-liners from the film, and make sure to watch it this Halloween!

  • Google Celebrates Jim Henson's 75th Birthday

    Posted on September 28, 2011 by PopFunk

    On September 24, The Jim Henson Company celebrated what would have been the 75th birthday of the famed puppeteer, producer, director and all-around visionary. In a unique collaboration with Google, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop built original digital puppets for the occasion, resulting in a custom Google Doodle – the company’s awesome, often interactive alternative front page logos. Google Doodle for Jim Henson's 75th Birthday. To go along with Doodle, Jim’s son Brian (who now runs the family business) wrote a poignant tribute to his father for the Google Blog.

    “[Jim Henson] loved games—card games, board games, all kinds of games. He was one of those rare parents who was always ready to play again. He loved dogs, particularly goofy ones. And he lived for those moments when everyone laughed so hard they couldn’t talk. I often walked onto the Muppet set to find everyone just laughing hysterically.”

    Thanks for the years of laughter, Jim. Happy 75th from Popfunk! Read More

  • Dolphin Tale Makes Waves at the Box Office

    Posted on September 26, 2011 by PopFunk

    Never one to shy away from a challenge, Winter the dolphin had her work cut out for her at the box office this weekend. Her amazing true story was the inspiration for the Warner Bros. film, Dolphin Tale, which opened opposite Brad Pitt’s new flick, Moneyball, and the reigning box office king, Simba, in Lion King 3D. Impressively, Dolphin Tale more than held its own, finishing a close third with $20.3 million, garnering rave reviews from critics and moviegoers alike. In fact, Winter and friends earned a perfect A+ from CinemaScore audiences.
    Winter and Sawyer.

    Meanwhile, at her home in Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida, fans flocked to see the dolphin star, quadrupling the aquarium’s usual attendance numbers for this time of year. Winter’s definitely got some fans here at Popfunk as well. We’re not just writing this because we’re selling adorable Dolphin Tale tees. We’re writing this because we always back the underdog (…ahem, underdolphin), and we’re suckers for amazing animals that bring out the best in people. We loved this movie! Sawyer and Winter.

  • What's Out this Weekend: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

    Posted on August 4, 2011 by PopFunk

    This post is brought to you by the Garfield T-Shirt Collection at PopFunk Movies get remade very frequently now a days. As you all probably know, Hollywood is coming out with another remake of the sci-fi pop culture sensation, The Planet of the Apes, and it is set to grace movie screens everywhere this Friday. I know what you're thinking, the original film franchise was so good! How could they even think of making another?!? And I know,they did attempt to make a new one in 2001 starring Mark Wahlberg, and it was good... but no sequel came. Nevertheless they're at it again, and this time it might produce sequels.  I am not saying it will be better than the original (and when I say original I mean dating back to the late 60's early 70's franchise), but it doesn't look half bad. In fact, the movies will be quite different from one another. For example, the monkeys in the 2011 adaptation, do not talk like they do in the original. Also they are not actors, but mere computer enhanced chimps and apes.  Some may look at this as a downfall to the movie. I look at it as a new interesting way to portray the characters in the film. Another huge difference is the plot line. No longer are astronauts hurtling into deep space, only to come crashing back down to earth in a post-apocalyptic era of the future. Now the film takes place on earth in a year very close to our own, where a scientist, (James Franco), is working on a cure for Alzheimer's, which by accident gives Cesar, a lab monkey, enhanced intelligence.   Of the five original movies, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, most resembles the fourth installation, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. In CPA, Cesar is a monkey whose parents were two talking chimps from the future that came back to our time, but were murdered when Americans found out the mother had him. However they hid Cesar at a circus to save his life. Years later, Cesar returns to the city and sees that monkeys are now slaves to the humans and are mistreated. Judging from the preview of the new film, it looks as if the intelligent lab monkey named Cesar breaks free to begin his own revolution. Although the plot lines vary, the movies are similar with regard to the ending. The contrast in the two films could make or break the success of the new adaptation. It could be a major turn off to the die hard fans of this famous pop-culture movie franchise. On the other hand, it could be another summer blockbuster. Check out the trailer for The Rise of the Planet of the Apes. What do you think, sure hit or dud? Comment below and tell us why.

  • Cowboys, Aliens, Smurfs. Oh My!

    Posted on July 26, 2011 by PopFunk

    This post is brought to you by The Batman Dark Knight T-shirt Collection by and MovieWeb. Cowboys and Aliens, or The Smurfs? Which movie will rank supreme? With summer in full swing, what better way to escape the heat than kickin’ back and watching a movie this weekend? There are some big new releases we have been waiting for since their previews graced the big screen early this year.  Here is what we think. The Weekend's Big Winner: Cowboys and Aliens. 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Daniel Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). It's a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky, that even batman couldn't stop. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.   The Weekend's Best Bet: The Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures'/Sony Pictures Animation's hybrid live-action and animated family comedy. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, they're forced through a portal, out of their world and into ours, landing in the middle of New York's Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.   (Both movies will be released this Friday July 29th!) So, which movie are you gonna see? Feel like escaping reality for a while, watching a sci-fi western comic book turned movie, with an incredible cast and great special effects? Or are you going to take the nostalgic route, remembering the years of watching the little blue guys on the boob tube during your Saturday morning cartoon line-up. Comment below and tell us what you think!!!
