Are Awards Unfair to Popcorn And Comic Book Movies?

Where are your nominations, Chris Evans? Where??

Recently, Deadline published an interesting interview with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as part of their never-ending “Awards Watch.” The question: should their film be a contender for best picture? Seems simple enough perhaps; if it came out that year and is submitted for consideration, it is a contender. But that isn’t really true.

Women Like Marvel’s Agent Carter Were a Very Real Part of History

In my grandmother's assisted living home stands a very wonky statue which was recently decapitated by a nurse. Her head has been duct taped back together, and there she stands; a statue of a World War II WAC.

The ’80s Fan-Made Version Of Captain America: The Winter Soldier Has a LOT More Explosions, Somehow

If you're going to make enemies, you better make sure it's not America!

Steve Rogers missed out on all the straight-to-VHS goodness of schlocky '80s action movie trailers when he was frozen under the ice for the better part of the 20th century, so it's only fair that the Internet gets him up to speed—and this trailer does the job excellently, complete with a TOTALLY SERIOUS NOT AT ALL CHEESY revenge plot.

Agents of SHIELD Recap: “Heavy is the Head”

Science bros!

"Heavy is the Head" was part two of the season premiere, picking up exactly where the first episode left off. Where "Shadows" was filled with lovely character moments and personal development (promising a more character-focused second season), this week's episode suffered from having to do the business. "Heavy is the Head" was heavy in the plotting, but I can forgive it. They have a whole season's worth of plot lines to set up, and I'm just glad it wasn't all crammed into the premiere.
