  1. Everything That Happens In The Tolkien Universe After The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

    First things first: Yes, even before Peter Jackson sat down to make the film, we knew what would happen after The Hobbit. The Lord of the Rings, all 480,000-plus words of it, was already a fairly excessive sequel to one children’s book. But if you know anything at all about John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, it won’t surprise you that it doesn’t end there.

  2. The Mary Sue Interviews: Jennifer Kent, Hollywood’s New Maestro of Horror, Talks The Babadook

  5. Get Your Nerd Groove On With These Excellent Geeky Jams

    Geek out!

    I adore music. All kinds of music, from Tchaikovsky to Bad Religion and from Kate Miller-Heidke to Tech N9ne. What I also love is when people get super clever, and super nerdy, with their music (be it an original or a parody). So, here are just a few of my favorite nerdy songs from my music library.

  6. Why Captain Marvel Was The Right Choice For Marvel’s First Female-Led Film

    There is not a doubt in my mind that a Black Widow standalone film would have been incredible, and I would have loved it. I’ve enjoyed watching the way her character has developed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and in my opinion she is one of the best characters to grace the Avengers line-up so far—so I was disappointed and outraged along with half of Tumblr when Marvel didn’t include her in their ten-year plan.

  7. The Walking Dead Recap: “Crossed”

    GET IN THE HOUSE, FATHER GABRIEL!

    Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead marked the last regular episode of the year before the mid-season finale, airing on November 30th. Though this episode certainly had its moments, it felt like this week’s episode was mostly laying groundwork for next week’s finale. As always, spoiler alert for those not caught up on The Walking Dead.

  9. Review: You Should Probably Pick Getting Probed By Aliens Over Seeing Extraterrestrial

    Extraterrestrial starts with an impressive prologue which is at once shocking, scary, and darkly humorous, suggesting the possibility that this could be an original (or at least refreshing) take on the alien genre. Unfortunately, the film’s process proves sporadic at best; and by the end, I was almost angry with writers The Vicious Brothers and director Colin Minihan for wasting my time.

  10. The Mary Sue Interview: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night Director Ana Lily Amirpour & Star Sheila Vand

    Talking Iranian lady vampire flicks is always the best.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is one of the coolest movies of the year. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, the film stars Sheila Vand as a chador-wearing vampire preying on the men of Bad City in a mash-up of western and vampire film, which is also surprisingly funny and romantic. Vand and Amirpour were in New York this week for the release of the film, and talked about their mysterious character, dangerous love, and the benefits of working with a cat on set.
