Mr. Robot season 2, episode 12 recap: This isn’t Burn Notice

With only one episode left in season two (and what was originally intended as the second half of a two-part season finale), we probably shouldn’t have expected Mr. Robot to answer all of its lingering questions and tie up each of its loose ends. But what’s been a frustrating, slow-burning mind trip of a season […]


WATCH: BMW Films, Clive Owen return to kick ass and sell cars

Do you remember the BMW Films ad campaign from 2001 and 2002? Online action films selling cars! The series of eight short films was titled The Hire, starring Clive Owen as “The Driver,” with each installment directed by a top-list filmmaker. Each short involved Owen as a mercenary hired to deliver or transport a person or […]


2016 Primetime Emmys get things mostly right in strong broadcast

The Primetime Emmy Awards wrapped its 68th installment on Sunday, as many of Hollywood’s television elite (sans Maggie Smith) gathered to honor the best performances of the past television season. Jimmy Kimmel was on hand to host the evening, doing a commendable job delivering an entertaining Emmys broadcast. Here are the moments that stood out from Sunday’s […]


Mr. Robot season 2, episode 11 recap: Are you a giraffe or a seagull?

Mr. Robot has tested the patience of viewers in its second season, taking the audience on a mind trip for much of the season and dangling the promise of a payoff. Eventually, we’ll be rewarded for sticking with this journey and the endgame showrunner Sam Esmail is working toward will become apparent, right? Are you […]


Batman shows off new threads in photo tweeted by Zack Snyder

One of the tidbits that movie reporters and bloggers learned when visiting the set of the upcoming Justice League in London is that Batman will wear more than one suit in the film. That might cause some Batfans to have bad flashbacks to the Joel Schumacher Batman movies, in which the Caped Crusader donned some […]


All-new Ghost Rider should ignite Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in season four

When most non-comic book readers hear the name Ghost Rider, they’re reminded of the hokey, two-toned motorcycle-driving Johnny Blaze performed by Nicolas Cage in 2007’s Ghost Rider and 2012’s sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Cage’s unhinged performance coupled with a nonsensical plot and lackluster spectacle left the sequel’s legacy solely memorable due to Cage’s insane attempt at […]


Sully shines with Tom Hanks playing conflicted hero, lauding first responders

It’s surely not a coincidence that Warner Brothers released Sully on the same weekend as the 15th anniversary of 9/11. The parallels between a plane crashing in New York City, terrified passengers and citizenry, and the efforts of the first responders on the scene are both uncomfortable to watch and inspiring. Director Clint Eastwood draws […]


Geoff Johns right guy to bring light to dark DC Films

The biggest mistake Warner Brothers and DC Films have made with their superhero movies is misjudging the tone that fans and mainstream audiences wanted to see. Now, Geoff Johns is ready to usher in a new era of optimistic, hopeful DC movies. Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, the legendary comic book writer and recently […]


Mr. Robot season 2, episode 10 recap: We will always lose to them

With three episodes left this season, Mr. Robot is finally unleashing its finishing kick. Season two has largely been inside Elliot’s head, as he tried to sort out his head while in prison. What he didn’t consider, however, is that the world would go on without him and the people he loves would have to […]


Mr. Robot season 2, episode 9 recap: Elliot, come back to Earth

After last week’s focus on Darlene and the rest of fsociety, Mr. Robot tried to return to normal in episode nine, “init_5.fve.” Or whatever passes for normal in this mind trip of a season. Elliot re-enters the real world after serving 86 days in prison, getting out early because of the 5/9 Hack affecting the records […]


An appreciation for the singular comedic talent of Gene Wilder

Gene Wilder, best known for his role as title character in the 1971 hit Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, passed away Monday at the age of 83 due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease. Throughout the ‘60s and ‘70s, Wilder was a comedic force, mainly in movies directed by the great Mel Brooks. During the later […]
