The Film Industry’s Desperate Attempt to Educate Their Audiences

TV and movies generally get a bad rap for being dumb, irrelevant, meaningless, and overall mind numbing, but that’s actually not the case. Yeah, OK, sometimes movies and films can be mindless. Occasionally, that’s the charm. But if you don’t turn your brain off completely while watching some of your favorite flicks, you’ll probably notice that Hollywood is (and has) been making a pretty legitimate attempt to address some of the ignorances in our culture. The most well known case for this is Rob Reiner’s…

Here’s a list of characters that can make you thankful that, regardless of how miserable you may feel, at least you’re not them: Eeyore Charlie Brown Marvin Ted Buckland Stuart From The Comic Book Store Rajesh…

Wonder Woman

Let’s Turn Up The Volume On This, Shall We? Gal Gadot Brings Wonder Woman To Life

Gal Gadot confirmed that she’s signed to do 3 movies as the iconic heroine, Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is more than just a superhero; she’s the superhero. She’s larger than life, which might be the reason behind so many failed attempts of mere mortals trying to portray her on the small screen. She’s strong, she’s a moral compass, she’s beautiful, and she’s alien. For the first time in over a decade, movie studios trying to breath life into Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot: former Miss…

Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston is back and this time he’s got bigger problems than getting nabbed by men This May, Gareth Edwards unleashes his 350 foot monster on American audiences in the reboot of the 1954 classic, Godzilla. Not a lot has been leaked about this $160 Million dollar movie, but from what has been said, we can expect a more organic, natural, Man vs. Nature theme, similar to the original story. Visual Effects Director, Jim Rygiel, stated they studied “YouTube videos of bears fighting…

How Did This Go Unnoticed?! Gru as Guest on Ellen

Gru shakes things up on Ellen and dominates the crowd Gru certainly does have a charismatic personality about him that makes him a quirky super-villain. Check out those evil moves he pulls! He knows how to make a crowd put their hands in the air and scream. Steve Carell pulled out all the stops on Ellen as he showed up in full character as Gru from his hit movies, Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. *Gif sets from muver54.tumblr and moviesblog.mtv.com.

‘Fantastic Four’ Is Set To Return, Possibly With An All New Cast?

The most recent Fantastic Four script has been announced as completed and casting is on the horizon Well, let’s remember what the original cast had to work with. The first ‘Fantastic Four’ script was (let’s be honest) terrible. Spoiler: the Fantastic Four did nothing to save the day. The villain was created and the entire city was pretty much destroyed at entirely the Fantastic Four’s own fault. That being said, I don’t think the actors should be punished for the writer’s and directors shortcomings. That’s…

Donald Glover Troy Barnes

Saying Goodbye to a Good Friend…Right in the Feels

Tomorrow we say goodbye to Donald Glover as Troy Barnes from NBC’s hit show ‘Community’. Donald Glover came onto the show and into our hearts as the high school jock who faked an injury to get out of a college scholarship and wound up in an unlikely mix of a study group at Greendale Community College. We’ve had several great years with Glover; he created a character we and Abed came to love dearly. He will be missed. Tune in Thursday night to NBC on…

Words of Radiance: The Stormlight Archive

Just another reason to get excited about March 2014!

Author Brandon Sanderson’s second book to The Stormlight Archive is scheduled to be released March 4, 2014 Words of Radiance: The Stormlight Archive, Book 2 is coming, and if you aren’t reading The Stormlight Archive, you’re missing out. This particular fan discovered Brandon Sanderson from the last few books of the Wheel of Time Series. It took a few chapters to settle into his style, but I was irrefutably hooked with his storytelling. While it had taken nearly two years to listen to the WoT…

feminist Joseph Gordon-Levitt

How do we love feminist Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Let us count the ways…

Just kidding, we’d be here all day if we did that. Child actor gone right, feminist Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been with many of us since the beginning of our fandoms. Most notably he began with us as a supporting actor on the hit show 3rd Rock from the Sun in the 90’s (in fact, every time I hear ‘3rd Rock,’ that’s the first show that comes to mind). You might also remember him from his early movie days with Heath Ledger and Julie Stiles in…

Yoda Episode 7 News

I couldn’t resist anymore: Episode VII news, it is

Ever since Star Wars Episode VII was announced, I have been avidly avoiding anything regarding updates. Today I cracked. And I Googled news about Episode VII. It looks like it’s safe to say that the script has finally been completed, filming begins in May, and the release date is set for October 18th, 2015. Aside from that, everything is rumor. One would expect a huge block buster such as Star Wars to be shown in High Frame Rate on an IMAX screen, right? Metro.co.uk quoted…

Why aren’t more people talking about this? Russell Crowe brings Noah to the big screen.

Why haven’t I heard about this before now? For some reason, NOAH has completely slipped under my radar. NOAH’s all star cast looks wildly promising: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, so on and so forth. If nothing else, the fans will most likely enjoy seeing all their favorite actors on screen together. However the trailer looks great, so I’m expecting it to be more than eye candy. The flood myth isn’t exclusive to Christianity, it’s found throughout the world in varying cultures,…

Anticipation is Building for X-Men: Days of Future Past

I probably got a little more excited than I should have when I came across this photo for the first time. Actually, it still makes me a little giddy. It shouldn’t, it’s a fan mashup from Reddit, but still, it’s excellent work and what a way to pull on the heartstrings! While it doesn’t look like we can expect Clint Eastwood making any appearances in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the anticipation for the newest installment of X-Men has everyone riled up. If you’re looking…
