  Watch Video To be honest, I kind of forgot Ready Player One was coming out soon. I somehow missed every trailer, but here's the final one for its upcoming March release. There's a lot to absorb here, namely each of its referen...   read

  Watch Video When Sony announced they were still moving forward with some of their "Spider-Man Cinematic Universe" ideas before gently sitting under Marvel's Avengers umbrella, the most intriguing project to come out of this was Ven...   read

  Watch Video Teen Titans GO! has pretty much taken over Cartoon Network the last few years as blocks of the show have steadily replaced new programs, and now it's getting ready to dominate movie theaters (probably).  There are ...   read

  Watch Video Though Sony and Marvel's deal means Spider-Man can join the MCU, with Sony still holding the franchise rights to the character they're going to try and make as many projects as they can. There's a Venom spin-off, a Blac...   read

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Reynolds has been cast as the titular Pikachu in Legendary's upcoming live-action adaptation of Detective Pikachu.Alongside Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton, Ryan R...   read

Review: Coco

  Watch Video A litany of Disney animated films have explored various cultures. Whether or not they were entirely respectful of those cultures is up for debate, but the one constant up until recently was that neither Disney nor Pixar tackl...   read

  Watch Video There isn't much to go on in this teaser, honestly, but it does confirm a few things. Baby Jack Jack has a couple of new powers, and the Incredibles theme still pulls at my heartstrings the way it used too.  T...   read

  Watch Video Remember Rampage? It's that arcade game that ran its course after 20 minutes or so. It's totally fun, but it's the kind of fleeting fun meant for a weekend rental. Anyway take that 20 minutes of fun, with about 30 secon...   read

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind Despicable Me and, sigh, the Minions, are nearing a deal for a feature-length Super Mario Bros.&nbs...   read

Hitman's recent resurgence must've gained some notoriety, and I suppose its time as a film series is done, so now it's getting adapted into a Hulu exclusive TV series. According to Deadline, FOX and Hulu have tapped the ...   read

  Watch Video As Netflix crawls further into debt, and continues its larger push into original programming, it means there's a lot more pressure on its flagship shows to succeed. Stranger Things' first season hit a nostalgic vein, and...   read

Review: Jigsaw

  Watch Video What started out as a low budget, generic "torture porn" film has slowly morphed over the years into an endearingly goofy film franchise. If you've never seen a Saw film before, I'm sure its lasting success seems like a myste...   read

  Watch Video By the success of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the looks of Thor: Ragnarok, and this latest trailer for Black Panther, it seems Marvel is learning from their past mistakes and allowing their directors a bit more wiggle ro...   read

  Watch Video In honor of both Friday the 13th and Stranger Things' second season Halloween premiere, Netflix has released the final trailer for season two. It admittedly doesn't have the same pop as the Thriller backed first trailer, but...   read

  Watch Video After that all too brief "going to the mall" scene in X-Men: Apocalypse, I've wanted an X-Men film where cool, super-powered teens hang out and do things. But since I don't make the big decisions, and The New Mutants is base...   read

  Watch Video Marvel has been trying to adapt their Runaways comic series for quite some time now (since 2008, if I'm not mistaken). But thanks to newer platforms like Hulu, they finally get their chance. I'm not the most knowledgeable fa...   read

  Watch Video Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. Its a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynic...   read

Bob's Burgers is one of those shows I never expected to love as much as I do now. It started a bit slowly, but once it really steered into its grounded absurdity (an oxymoronic nature Bob's Burgers balances so well) it took o...   read

There's been a pretty big debate in film media around Rotten Tomatoes scores. Hollywood executives, including notable director of Rush Hour and several Mariah Carey videos Brett Ratner, have pointed their fingers at...   read

The Defenders
  Watch Video When the Marvel Cinematic Universe first came to Netflix it seemed like such a great idea. Four individual series of shows focused on more grounded heroes eventually coming together in a small scale, Avengers-like fashio...   read

Justice League
  Watch Video Justice League is in the middle of a huge mess right now. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are tooling and re-tooling elements, Ben Affleck was almost phased out of the Batman role (before confirming he'd be staying on), and the fi...   read

Inhumans
  Watch Video There's a weird air around Marvel's The Inhumans. Maybe it's because it's a formerly scheduled film project that got bumped to TV, the fact that some of it being shot on IMAX cameras makes it seem bigger than it actually is, ...   read

Hey Arnold!
  Watch Video Our current 90s nostalgia boom has resulted in some good things, and lots of bad things. But I am thankful that it's allowed some stories to finally get a real ending. Hey Arnold! was one of the many Nickelodeon shows cut dow...   read

The Defenders
  Watch Video I still haven't seen Marvel's Iron Fist, especially after Editor at Large Hubert Vigilla tore it apart in his review, but I guess I'm going to have to read some cliff notes or something if I want the full Defenders experience...   read

Spawny Boy
20 years ago Michael Jai White and John Leguizamo put on some crazy outfits and delivered an even crazier film with Spawn. While Todd MacFarlane's Spawn will never be as popular as it was in 1997, a film version now makes sen...   read

One Piece
Eiichiro Oda's One Piece is arguably the most popular anime series in Japan, so with how much anime has garnered interest in the West it was only a matter of time before some Western company wanted to try their hands at ...   read

Mega Man
With the kinds of properties getting film adaptations lately, like Sonic the Hedgehog, Gears of War, Detective Pikachu, Streets of Rage, and even friggin' Tetris, some properties slip through the cracks. First annou...   read

George Romero
George Romero passed away yesterday after a brief, but harsh battle with lung cancer. He was 77 years old.  Some deaths really do a number on you, as names like George Romero have become such a cemented name in cinema it...   read

Apes Review
  Watch Video Combing through nostalgic culture has become the norm, and unfortunately, so have the middling resulting projects. Audiences have, sadly, come to expect reboots to suffer as studios struggle to re-capture what made something ...   read

Castlevania Review
  Watch Video Adi Shankar is quite a cult hit in film circles. He's made a name for himself by fully investing into properties he loves. It's a nerdy demeanor that's absolutely infectious as its led to his famous "Bootleg Universe," in whi...   read
