Ghostbusters’ New Villain Is Straight out of Reddit, and It’s Glorious

G'busters *tips hat.*

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot hits theatres this Friday, and if you believe the IMDB ratings—LOL sorry, sprained something laughing—it’s an unmitigated clusterflick of a film.

The Legend of Tarzan: How Do You Review a Movie That Makes Absolutely No Impression?

Living at the crossroads of uncomfortable and unmemorable.

Against all expectations, The Legend of Tarzan, despite certain odd stylistic decisions, is engaging, practically riveting; with its coy sense of irreverence and eye-catching visuals, you won’t be able to get this one out of your head for a while. Wait, no, that’s the music video for Toy-Box’s “Tarzan and Jane.” The Legend of Tarzan is garbage.

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: Series Finale!

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: "Kuvira's Gambit"

So now that Kuvira has conquered the Earth Kingdom Empire and successfully built her vine-powered nuke (never thought I'd type that phrase), is she going to sit back and get with the chilling, secure in the knowledge that she's done all the conquering she needs to? HA HA, NO.

Review: The Trailers Lied to You—Charlize Theron Is Not Actually the Star of The Huntsman: Winter’s War

I know, I know. You wanted The Huntsman: Winter's War—follow-up to 2012's critically ill-received but wicked financially successful Snow White and the Huntsman—to be wall-to-wall Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt chewing scenery, with some ass-kicking Jessica Chastain thrown in. Alas. In this world, sometimes we do not get what we want. The real star of The Huntsman: Winter's War is ...

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Remembrances”

“Huh, that’s weird. Why is the ‘last time on’ guy talking about stuff that happened in previous seasons? ‘Sit back, relax, and take a trip down memory lane’? Oh, no ... it’s not … it is ...

SXSW Makes Progress With Anti-Harassment Summit, but There’s Still Room for Improvement

In the ye olde age of 2015, SXSW got in some hot water for their decision to cancel two panels related to online harassment and gaming culture after they received violent threats from people who were very HOW DARE about... umm... people saying "hey, maybe we should talk about these violent threats happening on the Internet."

Well thank you, Korra, for reminding me of early ‘00s alt-rock band The Calling.

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Korra Alone”

Like Avatar's "Zuko Alone," "Korra Alone" delves into a main character's backstory. Unlike "Zuko Alone," "Korra Alone" doesn't make me want to pull my spine out through my eye socket. That's just what Zuko-centric episodes were like prior to The Great Friendshippening. The pain, the pain of it all.

Counterpoint: Deadpool Ain’t Perfect, But It’s Pretty Damn Fun

On Friday, that ritual goat sacrifice Ryan Reynolds partook in years ago [citation needed] finally pays off when Deadpool hits the big screen. Lesley didn’t like it, but I’m prepared to be the Goofus to her Gallant—Deadpool definitely falls on the Goofus end of the spectrum—and defend the superhero feature. Is it perfect? No. But it’s still pretty good, especially for a Hollywood February release. What else are you going to watch? Gods of Egypt?

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: Season 3 Finale

Welcome to the season three finale, in which Korra fights a religious fundamentalist supervillain and Jinora saves the day through being a low-key badass. Wait. They just took a mulligan on the season two finale, didn't they?

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Enter the Void”

Turns out I was wrong in my last recap: The airbenders didn't escape the Red Lotus' nefarious clutches. The only one still on the lam is Kai, the Elmo to Korra's Sesame Street. Which means we get some Kai this episode. Greeeeeat.
