The music of Queen has permeated my entire life. My parents were fans and even though a requirement of growing up is you reject the things your parents like, Queen was just too cool for me to kick to the curb.

Hollywood spends a lot of time in outer space. From a galaxy far, far away to “Houston, we have a problem,” movies have been taking us to space since humans invented celluloid (almost literally, as one of the first movies ever made was Georges Melies' “A Trip to the Moon”). ... [More]

It’s almost impossible to view Venom in a vacuum. The character became popular as a Spider-Man nemesis, a super-cool bad guy who was as much an anti-hero as he was a villain. Before Marvel became a movie studio, they let other people make movies with their characters. Sony made a lot of m... [More]

The “Teen Titans Go!” animated TV show brings an incredible amount of silly ridiculousness to the DC universe of superheroes, to the point it makes “The Lego Batman” movie look like “12 Angry Men.” It’s always good if you’re in the mood for a juve... [More]
