Rambo is coming back everybody, and he’s NAT happy (probably)

Yep,  Stallone has announced the fifth installment in his famous Rambo franchise, and this time, he’s in… Mexico! Expect to see: shooting, punching, maybe like one kick cos he’s quite old isn’t he, stabbing, driving, shouting and a bit where he takes his top off and erm, it’s a bit gross how muscly he is actually.

Power ballads can be quite emotional, don’t you know?

Nowt wrong with a big old cry at an overwrought rock classic now, is there? This is something that author Dan Dalton discovered when he first heard ‘Always’ by Bon Jovi at the age of 11. So he wrote a big piece about it for us, and you can read it on THIS VERY WEBSITE THAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY ON RIGHT NOW.

Sipsmith - that really nice gin company - are running a bunch of ‘ginternships’, which will enable you to drink gin and get paid for it. You know how normally when you drink gin you don’t get paid for it? Well, in this case you will. You know how normally when you drink gin you have to actively pay for it?

Paid to drink gin, stupid careers advisor never mentioned this, the snake.

Apply here

A gin and tonic, there, being poured for you, which you don’t have to pay for. In fact, not sure if it’s been mentioned, but someone else will pay YOU for drinking it

Oh hello Bill, hello Ted, lovely to see you after all this time

Yep, that’s right, a sequel to Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey has finally been greenlit, so we can finally find out exactly what our two bros have been up to in the intervening years. 

Interesting though, how Alex Winter has aged like a normal human being, but Keanu Reeves has the looks of an immortal vampire and has exactly the same face. That’s gonna look weird, isn’t it?

Either Bill or Ted, can’t remember which. Mate, this film came out ages ago

Robots can now pretend to be human so well that you won’t be able to tell the difference, aka WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE UNDERNEATH THEIR METAL BOOTS

Essentially, Google have invented an AI assistant that can actually phone people for you. Yeah, big whoop, you say, big massive whoop from Planet Whoop. Yeah, but then you hear it, and your spine chills to zero degrees because this robot sounds exactly like a human, and there is no way on earth that you would ever be able to spot it. It’s horrible, it must be stopped, and it will be phoning up hitmen to kill you before we know it.

Movie clichés are good, actually, so you better listen up

Sometimes it’s nice to sit back and watch a movie that is going to give you exactly what you want, on repeat, for an hour and a half without even a hint of an original thought or idea. Sometimes, it is very nice thank you very much, to spend a bit of time with something extremely familiar. As such, we have listed the 19 movie cliches that are actually great, and should never disappear. If you are the type of person who orders a korma every single time you get a curry, you will like this list.

Details of the new Harley Quinn movie have been revealed, and it sounds VIOLENT *piaow piaow piaow*

What they’ve done is this: Deadpool was violent and sweary and it made loads of money, so let’s make Harley Quinn violent and sweary and the exact same thing will happen. Will it? Who knows!

At least get a new t-shirt Harley, your one’s got all holes in it

The world’s worst 2 minutes of video is currently on the website

Would you like to watch it? Like, it’s actually the worst. You won’t be able to get through it. It is SO gross. Genuinely impressed if anyone can stomach the entirety of its length. 

Watch - are you sure you want to do this - the clip, which is obviously from Come Dine With Me, here

Watching someone else’s disgusting first date is predictably quite awkward

Thankfully, most of us don’t have to witness it. Bartenders on the other hand, they do, they absolutely do. And so we asked a bunch of them for their most cringe-worthy stories.

Read them here, if you really fancy feeling horrible and awkward and maybe even a bit sick

It would be very fun and nice and cool to be best friends with The Rock, wouldn’t it? Answer: yes

Novelist David Whitehouse is, he actually is best friends with The Rock, and he’s written all about it so that us lonely, lowly, friendless melons can at least live vicariously through him. It sounds all very exciting, if you ask us.

Imagine what it’s actually like to have a mate who isn’t a hooting dickhead, here

The Rock, your mate (only joking, of course he’s not your mate, ha ha ha hahahahaHAHAHAHA)
