Hasbro has signed a deal with Emmett/Furla Films to produce movies based on Hungry Hungry Hippos, Monopoly, and Action Man. So we have parody posters.

Good news, everyone, Stretch Armstrong is back on!

It seemed like not so long ago that Universal and Hasbro execs were riding high on a wave of cocaine as big as the Chrysler building, greenlighting movies based on as many board games as they could remember.

Stretch Armstrong And Bobbito’s Final WKCR Show

By | 18 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2008/06/stretch-armstrong-and-bobbito-freestyle-frenzy-1992-1994"> The Stretch & Bobbito show borders on legendary for breaking the mold by putting raw, new music on the air and the relationship between the host providing commentary and comedy. In my arrogant opinion, a music collection isn't complete unless you have at least a handful of their recordings, much like checking someone's bookshelf in order to gauge them as a person. I don't care if you have actual audio tapes stashed or a loose collection of mp3s tucked in file folders on a hard drive somewhere, owning at least a piece of their show moves you from casual fan of music to one who knows the culture. If you don't own any, now would be a good time to start and work your way backwards since last night's show was the last hurrah. After all the years, Columbia U decided to <a href="http://www.petitionvoice.com/save-the-squeeze-radio-show-petition.html">pull the plug</a> on the show.

I'm doing all I can to bring shame and humiliation to anyone who participates in this <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/?s=hasbro" target="_blank">retarded campaign by Hasbro</a> to make movies out of all their dumb toys, but alas, I'm only one man with a laptop and poop-stained underpants, and Hollywood people are giant whores.

Once upon a time, that a movie was just a 2-hour toy commercial was an accusation to be disputed by the filmmaker.
