Terminator Party Recipes: Endoskeleton Chocolates, T-1 Too Many Cocktail, and Glowing Jell-O Shots!

Coming up with recipes for our themed weeks is probably one of my favorite parts of doing this site. I have FOUR recipes for you today, giving you quite the selection for your Terminator-themed parties that you’ll be having over the long weekend. If you’re smart, you’ll get the idea to make all these Terminator skull-themed treats around Hallowe’en season...

Terminator Meets School House Rock

I had only seen about five minutes of a Terminator movie as a kid. That didn’t stop me from ending up with a few T2 toys somewhere along the way. I had half-Arnold/half-skeleton, Arnold with exploding arms, and the robo skeleton. My favorite by far, however, was the John Connor figure because he looked like an ordinary person and his...

Super Mario Maker: Terminator Style

It’s no secret that we love us some Mario Maker around these parts, with Lee’s Back to the Future Mario Maker Level and Linz’s Mario the Hedgehog Level. Then it’s no surprise that Linz made a Terminator-themed Mario Maker level, is it? No, not really. Join us then as we play Linz’s Terminator-inspired level. Play along with us! Just enter...

The Terminator Name Generator

We’ve all used name generators to pick out frivolous names for ourselves– our Star Wars names, porn names, etc. But what if someone came up with a Name Generator so useful, so life-fulfilling, that it would give you a name you could legally to? Have no fear, Pop Rewind is here with The Terminator Name Generator! Let us know what...

Terminator Endoskeleton NECA Figure Giveaway!

To kick off Terminator Week here on Pop Rewind, we wanted to give a little something back to our readers for allowing Linz to indulge in such tomfoolery. So, we’re giving away a NECA Terminator Endoskeleton Figure! This Model T-800 features… The figure is for ages 17 and up. Although, if you’re younger than 17, I’m not so sure how...

Announcing: Terminator Week!

It’s an exciting year for the Terminator franchise– Terminator 2: Judgement Day celebrates its 25th anniversary on July 3, 1991. And what better way to celebrate all things Terminator than with a week of Terminator-themed shenanigans on your favorite website (Pop Rewind.com… that’s what we were going for there). What can you expect this week? Every day, from June 27...

PopRewind Podcast: Back to the Future Time Travel In Japan

In a clever twist, Lee becomes the guest in this podcast as Linz questions him about his trip to Japan.  Of course, he took a time travel detour for one last ride on Back to the Future at Universal Studios Japan. We forgot to do a poll this time, so just vote #TeamLee. You all would anyway. Check it out...

Winston Action Figure Surprise

My house was littered with piles of The Real Ghostbusters toys back in the 80s. They made a hundred variants of each character, which was great and made no sense because it never overcame the problem of there being only four Ghostbusters playable at one time (Janine, Slimer, and Louis occasionally joined in, of course). So, what you ended up...

That Time My Mom Stuffed Silly Putty in My Ears

Due to having frequent ear infections as a kid, I had to be careful to not get any water in my ears. This is something I still carry with me today. I never dunk my head underwater in a pool and always cover my ears when I wash my hair. I don’t ever remember using conventional ear plugs in the...

Ghostbusters 2016 – Updated Trailer

It’s not often you get the chance to re-paint the Mona Lisa, yet here we are. Check out what happened when we lined up the “Ghostbusters Meet the Laser Ghost” story book record from the 80s with the newest Ghostbusters offering. It works way better than you’d expect.
