Archie Publications has, in recent years, gotten smart with the books they put out. Afterlife With Archie takes what should be a dumb idea, Archie fighting zombies, and makes it a disturbing, even sad, book. They’ve tackled issues ranging from the Occupy movement to same-sex marriage. Show More Summary
It’s taken a couple of years, but the rest of American television is finally catching up to The Walking Dead. ABC has Resurrected, which looks suspiciously like The Returned. I love the crap out of The Returned, but it’s French and it’s in French and everyone is so Very French and of course that’s not good enough for A&E, so they’re remaking it.
Her hair is completely full of electric toothbrushes. Wait…wrong show. I’m firmly on record as hating, hating, hating Star Trek Voyager. It single-handedly killed TV Trek for me (I only barely watched Enterprise and am ambivalent about the franchise ever returning to the small screen) so I’m always happy to tear down Captain Janeway and her insipid crew.
Whether or not Sony’s attempt to turn Spider-Man into a yearly franchise is a good idea or not, the movies are on the way. And the Spidey-villain centric Sinister Six may have just found its director. Drew Goddard is a name you might know from Cabin In The Woods, which he directed and co-wrote, or his salvage job of World War Z.
Peter Mayhew is thrilled to be playing Chewbacca again. The Star Wars: Episode VII news is really rolling in. Oh wait, no it isn’t. Filming has already begun, and the studio has only confirmed one cast member. We’ve heard plenty of rumors about villains and returning heroes, but we don’t know anything for sure.
The bad guys in Captain America: The Winter Soldier were laughably incompetent, and one of the silly things they did was say “Hail HYDRA” to each other. Because people who commit crimes always announce the name of the criminal organization with which they’re affiliated. Show More Summary
Blade doesn’t get enough credit as a movie that broke the Marvel curse. It was the first big-screen Marvel movie that both made it to more than a handful of screens and didn’t suck wildly. It’s still well-regarded among nerds and action movie connoisseurs, though, to the point where the Man At Arms web series decided to reforge his weapons.
The last crossover between X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Carl’s Jr. advertising was a gift to those with weird fetishes, but this second Carl’s Jr. ad featuring Evan Peters as Quicksilver is a gift to... we’re not sure whom. Maybe it’s...Show More Summary
The first clip from Guardians of the Galaxy just aired on MTV’s Movie Awards Takeover. The clip shows the rest of the scene from the trailer in which Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord is trying to steal something, Indiana Jones style, and he’s caught in the act and questioned by Korath the Pursuer (played by Djimon Hounsou).

Last we heard about the Battlestar Galactica movie, it was going to be directed by Bryan Singer and be based on Glen Larson’s 1978 original series with Larson on board as a producer. Variety now reports Universal has hired Transcendence writer Jack Paglen to script Battlestar Galactica as “a complete reimagining of the story”. Show More Summary
EA/Respawn One of the secrets Microsoft doesn’t want you to know about it’s big Xbox One system seller Titanfall, is that the game’s also coming out for the Xbox 360. Microsoft never mentions or shows this version of the game, and it...Show More Summary
As we all might remember, the introduction of the Xbox One was marked by three phrases: “TV,” “Call of Duty,” and “SPORTS!.” But while Microsoft stepped away from its plans publicly, it’s still on the charm offensive in private, andShow More Summary
Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you. Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Show More Summary
For the five of you who haven’t seen it yet, we’ll avoid above-the-cut spoilers. Suffice to say Captain America: The Winter Soldier features a vast and dangerous threat. Well-funded. Well-staffed. Well-equipped. And they’re total morons. Yes, we said it: HYDRA, in this movie, turns out to be pretty incompetent. Show More Summary
Enceladus likes Saturn, so he put a ring on it. I’m sure you need a minute to recover from the side-splitting laughter induced by that six year-old pop culture reference. Take your time. Good? Okay, let’s proceed. It’s been a big year for water. We’ve been melting a lot of the frozen kind here on Earth, and finding the liquid kind off-planet.
Take-Two Interactive So, apparently Honest Trailers is doing video games now. Heeey, saying snarky things about video game trailers is my thing. Hmph! Well, anyways, it didn’t take them long to get around to Grand Theft Auto V, because come on, not doing GTA would be like regular Honest Trailers not doing Twilight. Show More Summary
I’m going to use my position as an internationally famous blogger to voice an unpopular opinion: Cake is delicious, and I want to eat it all the time. I know, that was incredibly irresponsible. The Uproxx Overlords will be calling for my head on a platter (they prefer brains to cake), but it had to be said.
We’re cautiously optimistic about Constantine, NBC’s upcoming attempt to get in on the comic book TV show train. True, David Goyer on the script isn’t necessarily great news, but it’s directed by superb horror director Neil Marshall and they’ve certainly got the look down if nothing else. Show More Summary
Cuyler Smith’s “Friends Forever” Gallery 1988 did the thing. They held an art show celebrating Adventure Time, the GIF-worthy show that taught us to always be stupid forever and to try new things, because “sucking at something is the...Show More Summary
Backwards compatibility would seem like pretty much a no-brainer for any modern game console. It instantly adds a lot more games, keeps players happy, and ensures publishers and developers get a little extra revenue. Microsoft, however,...Show More Summary
