The Star Trek Movies You Don't Like Are Now Owned by the Same Company That Owns the Trek Movies You Only Mostly Dislike

The Star Trek Movies You Don't Like Are Now Owned by the Same Company That Owns the Trek Movies You Only Mostly Dislike

Allow us to introduce you to the latest inconsequential benefit of our megacorp dystopia. I have to admit it, as far as incredibly minor bright sides to the horrifying rise of media studio megamergers go, “At least CBS owns the Kelvin Timeline Star Trek movies” is not as immediately exciting as “At least the X-Men can appear in the MCU .”

After years of speculation and attempts, Deadline...

A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

Not a day goes by without someone, somewhere on the internet, feeling the need to express how they’ve been personally harmed by a news site focused on genre entertainment that committed the unforgivable sin of running headlines that very vaguely allude to the interesting parts of films and shows. “I have been slain by spoilers,” these people cry. “Why have you slain me?”

To be fair, there are...

MoviePass Changed User Passwords and Activated a 'Trip Wire' to Prevent User Access

MoviePass’ reality TV-level spiral from a promising startup to absolute shitshow hits all the markers for poor business management and abysmal consumer-facing service. But according to a new report, MoviePass’ also intentionally disrupted its own service by changing user passwords and activating a so-called “trip wire” to cut off its users from certain screenings.

If You Take Out Your Phone in a Movie Theater, I'm Going to Ask to Use It

If You Take Out Your Phone in a Movie Theater, I'm Going to Ask to Use It

Almost every weekend this year, I’ve ended up at the movies. In a relentless news environment, it’s nice to head over to the local multiplex, plop down, and turn off the rest of the world for a couple of hours. Sadly, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend: Even there, before the greatest spectacle that Hollywood can provide, people can’t stay off their fucking phones.

At a recent showing of John...

Sorry, The Lion King's 'Circle of Life' Doesn't Exist in the Natural World

Sorry, The Lion King's 'Circle of Life' Doesn't Exist in the Natural World

The Lion King offers a number of lessons around innocence, deception, and love. However, one of my favorite takeaways from the movie—both the original and the remake—is the so-called Circle of Life. We all know the term, made famous by the classic song by the same title.

In the movie, Mufasa, the king of the savannah, teaches his young prince, Simba, about the Circle of Life. Mufasa tells...

For Some Godforsaken Reason, Disney Is "Fast-Tracking" a Cruella de Vil Movie

It’s a day ending in ‘y,’ so Disney has another live-action, villain-focused adaptation of one of their classic animated films in the works. This one coming from the screenwriter Kelly Marcel, who wrote the 50 Shades of Grey script. Excuse me while I weep for a bit.

All the way back in April of this year, I mentioned that a Cruella movie had been announced in 2013, but nothing had come of it....
