During the filming of Doctor Dolittle, a young SAS soldier and future famous explorer Ranulph Fiennes decided he didn't like all the noise and trouble they'd brought to his little village, so he took action by gathering up a bunch of explosives from one of his training exercises and blowing the film set's dam right the hell up. Cracked's Jordan Breeding and Fact Fiend's Karl Smallwood discuss all this and whether they're allowed to swear on the channel.

In the Season 2 Finale of Your Brain On Cracked, "Doctor" Jordan Breeding celebrates the show's one year anniversary as well as mourns Caleb's death/move to Austin, Texas. He also uses the opportunity to discuss how messed up coming of age movie tropes are in films like Power Rangers, Animorphs, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Transformers, and X-Men and maybe even grows up a bit himself.

Mario's video games tend to be pretty tame and straightforward, but any time he warps into another medium things get freaking wild. From R-Rated manga to adult videos to icecapades, Mario's non-gaming adventures are mostly experiences Nintendo probably wants to keep buried. But now the truth is being revealed.

Star Wars "Legends" content has always been pretty variable in quality, but we're not interested in the safe stuff like Thrawn or Mara Jade—we're talkin' Luke seducing multiple dead girls, Leia trying to delay puberty through dance, and Jedi masters named after, uh, self love. This is Canonball.

Movies are really fun as long as you don't stop and smell the civilian casualties or take stock of how many fish Aquaman sends to their deaths or how many people Spider-Man lets get obliterated by a crane or how Ready Player One's Wade Watts is even less cool than we think. "Doctor" Jordan Breeding returns this week to point out all sorts of little depressing details that were snuck into movies that you probably never noticed!

The history of the Justice League is almost as long as the Snyder Cut's runtime. And it's chock full of fascinating stuff, especially at the beginning like Wonder Woman's love of BDSM, Superman's origins as an evil homeless guy, and Darkseid's insatiable thirst for monogamy. Also, Batman was blonde. This is CanonBall.

Superman & Lois is the latest CW show set in the Arrowverse, and it promises to adapt the couple's famous, long-enduring relationship in a grounded and thoughtful way. You know, basically the exact opposite of how it goes in the comics where we get Lois trying to kill herself for Superman's pleasure, the seduction of multiple babies, and Superman transforming his girlfriend "plump" and also an entirely different race. This is Canonball.

Presumably, every single writer in Hollywood was at some point in time a teenager. At the very least, they probably inject themselves with teenage blood in order to keep their organs strong and their skin moist. So how in the world do they know nothing about them? Thankfully, "Doctor" Jordan Breeding is oft accused of having a teenage sense of humor, so join him as he tears apart teenage movie tropes that have no grounding in reality.

WandaVision is easily the most popular show streaming right now about a scarlet witch of vaguely defined powers living inside a vintage sitcom with her dead husband, an android named Vision who used to be Robert Downey Jr.'s robo-butler named JARVIS. Second on to The Crown, probably. We don't know, we haven't seen it. But the weird thing is, everything we just described is actually an extremely simplified version of Scarlet Witch's comic book adventures. If you think the show is perplexing, your head might explode upon learning that if you dig deep into the comics' canon… it's pretty messed up. So let's go ahead and do that. This is CanonBall.

Did Obi-Wan WANT Padme and Anakin to get together in Star Wars? Was John Connor encouraging Kyle Reese to get with his mom in Terminator? Should Passengers have given Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence an entirely different ending? "Doctor" Jordan Breeding slips into something a bit more comfortable to take a deeply embarrassing look at some of film's most deeply disturbing romantic couples. So grab a glass of something bubbly, and start your Valentine's Day Weekend the right way.

Everybody assumes Keanu Reeve's John Wick's greatest skill is his ability to headshot 20 dudes in five seconds, but what if his actual greatest ability is being a super nice guy and a great friend?

Despite the vast and wondrous spectrum that is man, Hollywood franchises like Mission Impossible, James Bond, and the DCEU all seem to have extremely specific ideas of what a man is supposed to be… and they're not super great. "Doctor" Jordan Breeding digs into it all, because he is a man - give or take.

What are the mutant historians like in 'Logan' or the NYC attack truthers in 'Ghostbusters' or the true-crime enthusiasts in 'The Terminator'? Movie universes are much larger than the seven people we follow during the movie, but who the heck lives there and what are they up to? "Doctor" Jordan Breeding returns to deep dive into a few cinematic universes and ring in the new year the only way he knows how.
