Gather an army, the Ewoks are coming, the Ewoks are coming!

Being a filthy millennial, Ewoks are relegated to the past, largely seen as cynical additions to sell stuffed animals and foreshadow the Lucasing of the Star Wars. Most surprisingly, the Ewoks have appeared in four separate Star Wars p...

Ryan Reynolds teases a new direction for Deadpool 3

I've never been a huge fan of the Deadpool movies. I don't think that they're inherently bad, both of them are actually pretty okay, but I'm just sick and tired of Deadpool as a character. The snarky, fourth-wall breaking routine has run it...
