  2. Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson Go Back to School with Zombie Kids in Cooties

    "Oh look, carnage."

    Elijah Wood and schools just don't go together. Shit always tends to go down. First, freaky alien parasites invade his high school, and now a gross strain of the cooties has infected the kids at the elementary school where his character teaches.

  4. Wonder Woman’s New 52 Origin Should Not Be Used in Film (or At All)

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven says they'll be using Wonder Woman's DC Comics' "New 52" reboot origin rather than the story imagined by her original writer and creator William Moulton Marston. I think using the New 52 origin in general, much less in these films, is a mistake which diminishes the character and goes against why she was created in the first place.

    #onfire

    The Hunger Games and so called "selfie culture"... now there's a prompt from which a whole thesis paper could be made. Not all of Jaemyc's creative juxtapositionings of movie posters with posed subjects provide as much food for thought as this one, but they're still a diverting way to spend a few minutes. We've gathered ten here for your viewing pleasure, but if you'd like to see there rest check out Jaemyc's instagram!

  6. A Visual History of Stop Motion Animation [VIDEO]

    So. Many. Frames.

    Stop motion fascinates me, mainly because I know full well that I wouldn't have the patience for it. This quick watch whisks us through stop motion movies old and new, from King Kong to The Boxtrolls. I find myself struck with a powerful need to rewatch The Nightmare Before Christmas.

  7. Our Own Sam Maggs Explains Her Love For Robert Downey, Jr.

    Not coincidentally, most of the related posts I found were written by Sam.

    Hearken back to that long ago time of "last weekend," the time when our associate editor Sam Maggs was my counterpart. I am very glad that she has leveled up, but I admit that my work day doesn't feel the same without her. So, in lieu of her actually being here (sob), I'm going to share this video of her unabashedly fangirling over Robert Downey, Jr. Take it away, Sam.

  8. Will Hollywood Follow GOG.com Into DRM-Free Movie Downloads?

    Thus leaving us agog.

    Music services like iTunes brought digital distribution into the spotlight long ago, but in the years since, concern over the ease of copying files have led to Digital Rights Management (DRM) issues and a slew of different solutions. Launched back in 2008 under the name Good Old Games, GOG.com has made a name for itself in DRM-free video games, and they just launched an initiative to bring the same freedom to movies and TV. But will Hollywood go along for the ride?

    Time wasters of the world, unite! Eventually.

    Is there anything better than clearing your schedule, popping some corn, going to Netflix, and spending two hours deciding which movies you really should watch, eventually, but now's not the right time, you know?

  12. These Are Literally The Most Literal Movie Posters We’ve Seen Today

    In the strictest sense.

    I have a liking for literal humor, so these clever movie posters by Danish Ahmed tickled my funny bone (figuratively). To be honest, I kind of want to see his version of The Wolf of Wall Street. It's got potential.

  13. Review: ISA, a Bilingual, Lady-Led, Cyberpunk Thriller from Telemundo and Syfy

    Review: Syfy's ISA

    When we were approached with the possibility of reviewing ISA, a movie collaboration between the Syfy, Chiller TV, and Telemundo, we jumped at the possibility. A cyberpunk movie set in Los Angeles' most Hispanic neighborhoods with a super-intelligent Latina lead? Absolutely up our alley.

    Kristen Wiig Directing Her First Movie!

    Kristen Wiig may have declined to make Bridesmaids 2 for very respectable artistic reasons, but that doesn't mean she's not making movies at all. In fact, it leaves the actress wide open for, you heard it, the director's chair.

  16. Sigourney Weaver On The Legacy of Alien And The Possibility Of A Fifth Movie

    Spaaaaaaaaaaace

    When my brother was fourteen or so, I made him watch Alien with me. "This movie's important," I said. "Sci-fi and horror movies are what they are now because of this." He didn't dig it at first. The expository pacing did not pair well with the restlessness of puberty. The comment "this is boring" was muttered more than once -- right up until something horrible burst out of Kane's chest. He was rapt after that. The Alien franchise is something special, and it's impossible to imagine it without its leading lady, Sigourney Weaver. Recently, Weaver took part in a Q&A hosted by the Hero Complex Film Festival, in which she discussed the legacy of the series, the experience of playing Ellen Ripley, and her thoughts on a fifth Alien film. We've got the highlights below.

  19. In Which Brave Adults Rewatch The Nightmare Fuel Of Their Youth [Video]

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    After I saw this video of adults revisiting the scary movies of their younger years, I thought to myself -- hey! What better way to start a Sunday than by slaying the monsters under our beds? I'll start: Judge Doom's fake eyes falling out. The death of Tasha Yar. Maleficent appearing in Aurora's fireplace. Velociraptors stalking Lex and Tim through the kitchen. The entirety of The Secret of NIMH. That freaking story arc on Ghostwriter with the bubblegum monster. (via Screen Rant)

  20. Documentary Dinosaur 13 Digs Into One Of The World’s Most Famous Fossils [Video]

    hold on to your butts

    Well, this looks great. "Sue" is, unquestionably, one of the best known fossil skeletons in the world, but though I've read many a book with her name in it, I was unaware that her recent history was full of legal drama. I'm looking forward to sinking my teeth into this one. Yes, that was my best attempt at a Tyrannosaur joke. It's been a long day.
