    Now You See Me 2 - Now You Don't

    Not even remotely surprised here. The original was one of the dumbest films I've ever seen: The Horsemen were fun, but most of the film follows Ruffalo's boring FBI character, and since Ruffalo was also the mastermind behind the whole thing, essentially none of the film actually mattered or...

    First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Revealed

    Oh, this discussion again. At the risk of spending too much time re-posting half the post-Force Awakens internet, bullet points: -We know virtually nothing concrete about Rey's past -She actually stated she had piloting experience, just not out of atmosphere -The Force AWAKENS. We're still...

    Blizzard Drops the Hammer on Popular Vanilla World of Warcraft Nostalrius Private Servers

    Legality aside, I'm surprised this exists. Level 60 WoW was ludicrously flawed, and the game got infinitely better with BC and Wrath (after which I stopped playing, so I can't comment on later content). There were seriously 150,000 people still interested in 40-man raiding content from a decade...

    First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Revealed

    They're probably taking some cues from the MCU films. Marvel is borrowing from their massive background of comic stories for the films, but they understand that to try to adapt all of it is utterly ridiculous. Civil War, for example, is inevitably going to be of infinitely smaller scale than the...

    First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Revealed

    We may not literally get Thrawn, but I did get a Grand Admiral vibe here, and Disney is certainly capable of "borrowing" from the best of the EU even as they strike it from canon. It would make some sense to introduce a Thrawn-clone for Rogue One. On that note: who is the actor in the white...

    First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Revealed

    What the hell are you even talking about? You've seen about forty seconds of a lesser-known actress playing a new character in an existing franchise. She doesn't just "stand around"; she fights a group of stormtroopers, infiltrates an imperial ship, and delivers a very quotable line about...

    First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Revealed

    Yeah... Rogue One seems like a great spot to tell a new story, but I'm significantly less interested in origin-stories of old characters. Especially Fett, since his entire personality and mystique is due to the Extended Universe and he barely does anything at all in the actual films. I'd...

    First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Revealed

    This looks absolutely excellent, glad they're doing this. The Star Wars universe has tons of storytelling potential, especially when there isn't an expectation of jedi training sequences and lightsaber battles in each film.

    Butler Has Fallen - The Career of Gerard Butler

    Gerard Butler is great in a very specific type of role; an intense, troubled action hero. He simply hasn't found enough good movies where he can showcase that. I mean, I'm having a really hard time picturing any other actor in the role of Leonidas. In my hypothetical casting of a Game of...

    Punisher and Elektra Show Off Their Costumes In Daredevil Teaser

    To an extent, perhaps. TV series give more time to explore those flaws, though. In a two-hour Iron Man or Captain America film, you aren't going to fit in arcs of weakness when the bad guy still needs to be stopped before curtains. Tony Stark may have all sorts of problems with alcohol, health...

    No, Noomi Rapace Will *Not* Be Returning for Alien: Covenant

    I let myself get swept up in the mystery and existential horror of Prometheus, but I was left pissed that we didn't get more closure on the various half-realized concepts teased in the film. If Rapace doesn't return to reprise her character, that tells me that a lot of unanswered questions I had...

    Stan Lee Wants to Merge Marvel and Star Wars Universes

    There aren't many things in this world that I know, beyond all doubt, to be true. Star Wars taking place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away is one of those few things. No. GOD no. If Disney wants to get cute and have, like, a group of Groot-like creatures be present at a galactic...

    America Deserves Frank Underwood in House of Cards Season 4 Trailer

    Not nearly as compelling as the trailers for seasons 2 and 3, unfortunately. And after the comparative awfulness of season 3 to the quality of the first two, I was really hoping for a trailer that could generate more excitement in me. I mean, I'm sure I'll still wind up watching. But man...

    George R.R. Martin "Astonished" by Fans After Winds of Winter Delay

    Can't I just be somebody frustrated with the massive drop-off in released content, without feeling entitled to it? The first three books are some of my favorites of all time. But then Martin opted to continuously expand the scope of his series, to the point where the last two novels each took 5+...

    Why You're Wrong if You're Mad at George R. R. Martin

    The show has gone to hell? Surely you're aware that viewership and reviews continue to be record-breaking for GoT, despite some controversy. What's your grievance with the show?
