  1. Strap On Your Loin Cloths, It’s Time for a Hercules Gif Review

    Pure Oscar material.

    After a weekend of intense internal debate, yesterday I decided to hop on the bus, schlep to the theater, and see Hercules. After all, I justified to myself, it has Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson! Surely it will at least be entertaining! My subconscious was screaming in the background—But Brett Ratner. It's directed by Brett Ratner!—but I did not listen. I should have. Because Hercules was bad. And it needed to be worse. (Warning: Spoilers within.)

  2. Review: Mike Cahill’s I Origins Is Subtle Sci-Fi That Doesn’t Play Out How You Would Expect

    You will start noticing people's eyes more after this movie.

    Writer/Director Mike Cahill's second narrative feature, I Origins, is out in theaters today. It's an unconventional sci-fi film that focuses on the line between science and faith. It deals with very big ideas in a very small way, and almost pushes the larger story aside to focus entirely on the characters. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

  3. Review: A Brony Tale

    We're still not quite in Equestria, friends.

    A Brony Tale educated me, but I can't help but feel the history I learned was a little selective.

  4. A Delicate Balance: Why You Should Read Ai Yazawa’s Nana

    Morgana reviews Nana!

    It's hard to write about Nana without feeling as though I'm not doing it justice; this is more than a mere two-best-girlfriends-embroiled-in-romance story. The Nanas really exemplify a beautiful duality, the difficulty between balancing real love and a passionate career. And beyond that, the story is very realistic, with little room for romantic tropes or expected outcomes.

  5. Richard Linklater’s Boyhood Is a Real Accomplishment, More Than a Story About a Boy

    This is a movie that is worth your time. Roughly twelve years of it.

    Richard Linklater's Boyhood isn't your typical Hollywood film. It's not even a typical Linklater film. Boyhood was shot over twelve years, typically one weekend per year, following the life of one boy and his family from first grade through his arrival at college. It was a huge, risky undertaking, but it's paid off. Boyhood is wonderful.

  6. Product Review: Rokit Boost Swage Sport Bluetooth Headphones

    Look vaguely like a Cyberman while you jog!

    I don't think I'm alone in hating exercise, so anything that can make the process even a little less awful is a welcome addition to my routine. When Rokit Boost offered to have me review their Swage Sport Bluetooth headset I jumped at the chance, and I'm glad I did.

  7. Penny Dreadful Episode 8 Review: “Grand Guignol”

    In which predictable things happen, but in the best way possible.

    Penny Dreadful came to a close this week with more of a shadowy, haunting whimper than a twenty-first century bang, and I was completely okay with it. Though it left us with as many questions as it did answers, I really didn't expect anything less; if you did - what show have you been watching for eight weeks?

  8. Review: Snowpiercer, The Graphic Novel

    All aboard!

    If you've seen Bong Joon Ho's Snowpiercer, you might be wondering about Le Transperceneige, the French graphic novel on which it is based. Thankfully for those of us who don't speak French, this year Titan Comics put out the first-ever English translations, which includes Part 1: Escape and Part 2: Explorers. Part 1 just came out in paperback in June, and I got my grubby, sci-fi-loving hands on a copy.

  10. Rom-Com Spoof They Came Together Comes Together Well in the End

    "Came"? D'ya get it? Huh? Huh?

    David Wain, director of Wet Hot American Summer and Role Models, is back in snark mode (though he never really left) with They Came Together, a feature-length skewering of every rom-com cliché known to man starring Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd. But is the film better than some of the the saptastic treacle it mocks? Happily, yes.
