When it comes to movies, cops are usually the good guys. Every so often, though, there comes an officer of the law that abuses his (or her) power like it was a red-headed stepchild.

This week, Thor: The Dark World hits theaters and signals the last of the comic book movies for 2013, which for nerds everywhere is really depressing. Of course, the rest of 2013 has some pretty good-looking movies waiting in the wings to take center stage, but one has to ask, “What Comes next?” Well, it […]

Sex, love and pornography. As if Joseph Gordon-Levitt couldn’t get any better. The former child star has turned into quite the up-and-coming young actor as he’s worked to rebrand himself as something more than that kid from 3rd Rock From the Sun.

Or: You Should Have Paid More Attention in English Class. We all know that William Shakespeare is a pretty big deal. The guy wrote 36 plays and 154 sonnets (I had a hard time writing one) and gave us a lot of the words we still use today, such as obscene, swagger, puking and many […]

So Dead Space 3’s finally out, and yeah, it’s kind of a big deal. Since Resident Evil has basically fallen off of the boat that is “survival horror” (both in their film and video game franchises), it’s been up to Electronic Arts and Visceral Games to maintain the mantle.

Last week, a high-pitched shriek rang out across the Earth as comic book nerds rejoiced over the news of Dan Trachtenberg becoming the director of the Y: The Last Man film. For those of you who don’t read comics, that’s a pretty big deal. Y:The Last Man is the series I use to convince people […]
