The first time I played Gorogoa, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
A friendly reminder that we only have 11 days left until Christmas, so your gift-buying days are down to the single digits when you account for shipping time. We see a lot of great deals every day, but these were our 10 favorites from Thursday.
I can’t believe it’s taken this long to get a properly silly Silver Surfer dudebro joke into an ongoing Marvel series, but thanks to Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, one of the most delightful comics in the known cosmos, it’s finally here.
While discussing pop cultural blindspots with a co-worker recently, I admitted that Star Wars is something of a personal sore spot. I’ve seen all the films, watched my fair share of The Clone Wars, and thumbed through a comic or two, but I have never and probably will never be able to love the franchise because of…
A comic book about an unlikely masked gunman who kills criminals for bizarre reasons. A filmmaker who helmed Keanu Reeves’ modern-day action classic. It’s the kind of deal that seems too perfect to be true. But it is: John Wick director Chad Stahelski will be adapting Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ Kill or Be Killed…
Last year, DC launched Young Animal, the Gerard Way-fronted imprint that has become home to some of the publisher’s most bizarre and fresh titles, including Doom Patrol, Shade the Changing Girl, and more. But next year, Young Animal is going through a rebirth—not that one—and getting an interstellar upgrade.
Walt Disney Co. has agreed to buy the bulk of 21st Century Fox’s holdings in a $52.4 billion deal. While the changing future of the Marvel Universe and the movie landscape, in general, is big news, this deal also changes the entire calculus of streaming services. Disney is now the proud majority owner of Hulu, and the…
Though it may not seem like it, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is not the only film opening this weekend. There’s also Ferdinand, an animated bull movie featuring the voice of wrestler John Cena. Studios have been attempting to counter-program the scifi juggernaut, with varying degrees of success, all the way back to 1977.
One of the biggest mysteries that Star Trek: Discovery left unanswered by the end of its midseason break—other than, is everyone on this ship crazy or good now, I can’t tell—is just what’s happened with Voq, the mysterious Albino Klingon who could be a secret spy within the Federation. This poster either hints at…
By now you’ve heard multiple stories about it: Henry Cavill’s epic mustache that brought Warner Bros. to its knees and the awful CGI work they did to edit the thing out of Justice League. If, somehow, you haven’t actually seen Superman’s digitally-shaved face yet, now’s your chance. Deep breaths, people.
Gwendoline Christie and John Boyega are blood enemies in the newest Star Wars movies, but watching them alternately egg each other on and cringe with terror as they stick their hands into a box is extremely funny. “Is this a crab?!” “Is it a frog?! Is it a marble?!”
Steven Moffat’s tenure with BBC’s intrepid regenerating Time Lord is coming to a close, and he’s making a very bold assertion as to the Doctor’s quality and cultural impact. He’s saying it’s better than The Wire, people.
Humans have been killing other humans since the dawn of the species, but owing to the poor archaeological record, it’s unclear what sort of weapons our ancestors used to brutalize one another. Using models of human skulls and a replica of a weapon dating back thousands of years, researchers have shown that a bat-like…
Today’s announcement of Disney and Fox’s monumental deal raises a lot of questions. For example: What are the regulatory implications of dismantling one of Hollywood’s biggest film studios? But another question has to do with one of Marvel’s filthiest characters, Deadpool, who’s since become a valuable Fox asset.…
Alex Garland’s upcoming scifi spectacle Annihilation looks absolutely stunning and it’s set to star a cast of fantastic lead actresses as they embark on a perilous adventure into a strange, mutated land. But some fans of the novel the movie is adapting have an issue with the film’s white heroines*.
Star Wars Battlefront II’s latest DLC features an expanded story and new worlds from The Last Jedi. It does its best to reinvigorate the game, but it ultimately falls short.
Riverdale has finally revealed the “shocking” truth behind the identity of the Black Hood, the killer who was righteously cleansing the quiet little town of sinners and ne’er do wells. There were plenty of theories on who it could be, with the hopes that it would be someone right under our noses. Turns out, that was…
At this point, it shouldn’t be at all surprising that The Simpsons managed to accurately predict a wild bit of IRL news that none of us ever saw coming, but yes: The Simpsons totally called Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox.
Just take today off work, buy all seven episodes (not including Rogue One) digitally on Amazon while they’re only $10, and you can cram it all in before seeing The Last Jedi. Call it “training” and I’m sure you’ll get away with it.
