Monster Entertainment Awards 7So, it has taken us a little while to get this out and we apologize for the wait. Some things have changed and we have decided that we are not going to run the Pedal To The Metal Tournament this year for lack of participation and scheduling conflicts. That is also why we have extended the voting process for this because we have been so far behind that we are starting to catch up now. You now have until April 1st to cast your vote for your favorite wrestlers, albums, and movies. We have a lot of great categories and some categories have already seen the voting process begin on Twitter. Nevertheless, we hope that you guys take the time to vote and to enjoy it because it is up to you to decide who wins and you can vote once an hour on every category. So, have some fun and spread the word.

 

Monster Entertainment Awards 7I want to take the time to apologize to everyone for the wait, but we have been hard at work at some things for you guys which includes our March Madness style tournament. It’s hard to believe that we have been doing this awards thing known as The Monster Entertainment Awards for seven years now as 2018 marks the seventh annual presentation. A couple of things have changed however and you’ll notice that below, but each category will be handled by a different blog as we are working with the 365 Movies in 365 Days Challenge blog and Mr. X’s Punch Out blog. We here at Moshpits and movies will be handling the music side of things while 365 handles the films and Mr. X handles the wrestling side. As always, you are going to have a certain amount of time to vote for what album you loved more, what movie you thought was film of the year, and what wrestler you thought kicked ass. When all the votes are tallied up, we will present to you all of the winners that YOU chose because it’s all about the people. This award post has always been about you getting involved and deciding who is the best of the year and that is the way we intend to keep it. You will have until March 13Th at 10PM Eastern time to decide what is best so get involved and voice your opinion.

Fox-Disney-700x300One of the biggest megadeals was pulled off three days ago after much speculation that the Walt Disney Company was inquiring about purchasing some assets from Rupert Murdoch and his company Fox. Disney paid them 52.4 billion which means that the company that owns Star Wars, Marvel, ESPN, ABC, will now acquire 21ST Century Fox which includes 20TH Century Fox, 20TH Century Fox Television, any Fox owned cable networks (FX and National Geographic), as well as Fox’s 30 percent share in HULU. While the deal may seem insane, it is a huge power move for Disney who is essentially number one in films, but it powers them up with the number three company in film in Fox. Now if you need me to spell out what the company now owns, let me do that for you then. The company now owns the Alien franchise, Predator, The Fantastic Four, X-Men, Deadpool, Avatar, Ice Age, the Planet Of The Apes reboots, The Simpsons, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, How I Met Your Mother, FuturamaFirefly, and The X-Files. That is just the tip of the iceberg that the company now owns as they get ready to develop their own streaming service for the public.

thumb-1920-618647Now what I am most excited about when it comes to this deal are the possibilities as far as the MCU is concerned. They have already promised that Deadpool 2 would remain rated R, but just imagine what they can do moving forward with Phase 4 of the MCU. We know that Spider-Man 2 and Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 will be Phase four films, but there is not that much else that we do know and what a better time to add the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to the mix. Just think of all the characters that they will have access to moving forward and what kind of story lines that they’ll be able to explore as well. We have seen through three phases that the big boss villain at the end of it has been Thanos we get to fully meet him in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, but who is going to be that big boss villain moving forward after that? If you ask me, the next possible villain for it all could be the one and only true eater of worlds in Galactus. We could also stars introducing villains like Kang The Conqueror, Namor, and even some X-Men villains like Mister Sinister, Apocalypse (or at least do him justice), and Omega Red to name a few. As you can tell I am pretty excited for that aspect of the merger and the fact that all of the Xenomorphs are now Disney Princesses too. It remains to be seen what they will do with all this property and what the current films coming out will mean for Marvel (New Mutants and Dark Phoenix). Stay tuned and we will try to keep you updated!

I have to be perfectly honest with all of you before I go on and that is that I don’t really get the band Avatar, the metal band from Sweden and not the film. They are an interesting band that I am still trying to figure out, but the imagery is kind of cool.The one thing that I cannot deny is when a band releases a cool music video that they obviously put some thought into it. That is definitely what I can say about Avatar’s music video for the their track The Eagle Has Landed from their album Feathers & Flesh which actually comes out tomorrow (May 13TH) everywhere music is sold. In the music video for the track (which is also our music video of the week), lead singer Johannes Eckerström is a travelling salesman who goes door to door selling a miracle drug to some unwitting customers who don’t know any better. He sells the tonic to a farmer who cannot reach the last apple on the tree, a string man who is sick, and a man who wants to make love to his girlfriend or wife (whatever she is). You definitely need to check out the video, its very cool how they did it. Check it out below and check out their new album.
