If you don’t have a job, children, errands, or really any responsibilities to speak of, then you have time to watch the Lord of the Rings extended trilogy. For the rest of us, the theatrical versions will suffice, especially when you can get all three on Blu-ray for $10.
One of the biggest knocks against the DC Extended Universe has been its general lack of vibrant color compared to the comic books. In exchange for gritty realism, the DCEU—especially its costumes—come across as unsaturated and dour. That’s a shame because, up close, the League’s costumes look great.

There is no trope in spyfi thrillers quite like the image of an assassin donning a carefully selected wig before strutting down a hallway, gun in hand, on their way to eliminate a target. Taraji P.

The next Kingsman movie is going to examine the very special relationship shared by the U.S. and the United Kingdom... mainly by having both country’s spy agencies, the Kingsman and the Statesmen, take the piss out of each other. But on top of that, it’s going to give us some truly spectacular action, too.
It’s time to dig out and update the ol’ “why wasn’t this available when I was a kid?!’ list because buried in the day one Comic-Con news dump was this fantastic drivable X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer that lets a pair of kids zoom across the sands at a blistering five miles per hour.
