When Disney and Tim Burton dropped “Alice in Wonderland” on us in 2010, it met expectations, but never did it come anywhere close to exceeding them. What might have been most notable about the movie was it was the first major 3D-release in the post-Avatar revolution. The gimmick still ha... [More]

The game “Angry Birds” was a landmark because it was one of the very first apps that made people aware of the vast potential of wasting time on their phones. The game was simple and intuitive enough; you used your finger to pull back on a slingshot that launched birds of various abiliti... [More]

J.J. Abrams loves secrets and surprises. His “loose lips sink ships” approach to filmmaking is kind of noble and impressive in our era of spoilers and TMZ. While he was directing the biggest movie in the world, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Abrams took it to the next level... [More]
