We've hashed out the end of Interstellar plenty, but what if that ending had been different?Read More
Animator and friend-of-The Mary Sue Leigh Lahav did everyone the favor of finally tying together Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law with this year's Birdman movie in When No One Gets Your Cosplay (or the unexpected virtue of ignorance).Read More
We Mashed Up Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four Trailer With Interstellar’s Audio, and It’s Uncomfortably Similar
I think I've seen this movie before...
The Fantastic Four reboot trailer reminded us of a lot of things, but none more strongly than the trailers for Interstellar. So, we gave it a run through the Nolan-ifier for you, and it's so perfect you can barely tell the difference. Be sure to watch all the way to through. Enjoy.Read More

Google’s Top Search Data for 2014 Is Out and Just as Full of Frozen and Jennifer Lawrence as You’d Expect
Let it Goooooooogle!
Google has released its data for the top searches of 2014, so let's see if we can have some fun with it.

Now will the "it's self-serving and obnoxious!" complainers give it a rest?Read More

We won't tell.
The end of Interstellar left people with a lot of feelings: love, hate, mild confusion, a strong urge to find a bathroom after spending over three hours in a theater—the list goes on. If you fall into the "confusion" camp, allow astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson to explain what the heck the movie's ending was all about as only he can.Read More
Don't worry. We'll ask him to speak up.
There's been some controversy over Interstellar's sound mix making some of the movie's dialogue pretty much inaudible over music and/or eardrum-piercing sound effects. Well, tough. That's how Christopher Nolan wanted it—eardrums be damned.Read More
He'll help you grasp the gravity of the situation. Sorry. I'm done now.
Interstellar was big on the scientist-as-hero angle, which we can get behind, because Neil deGrasse Tyson is a scientist and our hero. The team behind the film worked really hard to make sure its physics were accurate, and it paid off both in the movie and in scientifically stimulating tweets from the astrophysicist last night.
