In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America is a pretty acrobatic fellow, jumping, flipping, and flinging himself around in an incredible fashion. And somehow, he manages to do it all while holding a shield. Wouldn’t that be a problem?
Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars movies is about as recognizable as Darth Vader or a lightsaber. It’s a smuggling ship, hot rod and plot device all rolled into one. After all, it’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. It also shares some similarities with another famous and strange…
Last night, I finally saw The Last Jedi, and now that the dust has cleared all I can think about is Star Wars fashion. No spoilers here, but plenty of ponchos.
Recently, Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the FCC, invoked Star Wars in celebrating his successful bid to repeal extant net neutrality laws. And Mark Hamill, donning his Master Skywalker robes at least in spirit, did not approve.
With more than 5.5 million articles, Wikipedia is an invaluable resource, whether you’re throwing a term paper together at the last minute, or seeing if there’s a good private school in your area with a magical-hat-based admissions department so you can downplay your lousy test scores. We explore some of Wikipedia’s…
The status of Justice League Dark, a potential DCEU movie spotlighting the more supernatural side of the DC universe, is pretty up in the air. Directors have come, directors have left, and though it still appears to be on the Warner Bros. slate, we couldn’t tell you what’s happening with it in clear detail.
Once upon a time, long before holing up in a cave with a bunch of porgs, Luke Skywalker had simple dreams. He just wanted to go into Tosche Station, possibly meet up with a few friends, and pick up some power converters. What were they even for, one wonders?
It’s nowhere near as expansive as some other anime sales Amazon has run, but today only, they’re offering big discounts on a half dozen Blu-rays, including Wolf Children, Steins Gate, Evangelion 3.33, and more.
A wizard is never early, nor is he late. He reprises his most famous role precisely when he means to.
It’s been almost a year since Carrie Fisher died, and I literally still think about her at least once a day. With the release of The Last Jedi, it’s more like once every 20 seconds, because every single newsfeed is clogged with Star Wars items. But this is actually a good one, because it’s about her dog, Gary.
Before The Last Jedi confirmed or denied any of our post-TFA plot speculation (no spoilers here, though!), the internet positively drowned in fan theories, ideas about Snoke, Rey, Phasma, and every little thing in between (were those really the ashes of Kylo Ren’s enemies, or were they just, like, incense or…
X-Men fans might be happy about the news that Disney plans to buy a large portion of 21st Century Fox, but the Democrats on the Senate and House antitrust subcommittees aren’t as thrilled.
It’s hard to make good TV about Silicon Valley and its predecessors. Especially a drama. Watching a bunch of nerds talk about coding and CPUs is appealing to only a painfully small fraction of the population—but someone definitely thought that same thing about advertising before Matthew Weiner trundled into AMC and…
The people behind The Last Jedi are invested enough in keeping all unrevealed information about the film secret that, even as the movie premieres, they’re not giving late night hosts clips of it to show. This creates a dilemma for hosts: how to help promote a project you’re interested in—which is traditionally part of…
And, to be fair, it’s a Lego version. Still, this feat of creation is pretty amazing.
It’s always been years. Three years between Star Wars movies. Sixteen years between trilogies. Then it shrank—it took 10 years to get The Force Awakens after Revenge of the Sith, and since then Star Wars movies have been a mere year apart. But now, for the first—and probably last—time ever, we’ll have two new Star Wars…
Imagine you are baking a cake. You use the same ingredients that you always use, and boom, cake. But now, imagine your surprise when you discover you can make the exact same cake—an identical cake—but with a whole new set of ingredients.
An animated Addams Family movie, but still.
The architect of the Battlestar Galactica reboot, and most recently Starz’s adaptation of the time-travel romance Outlander, is heading back to space for a new TV show. The twist is that’ll be a show made for Apple’s growing, but lofty, TV plans.
