Wilson has played Lex a few times now. And he’s weirdly good, with a controlled, modulated voice.

I don’t think there’s a sci-fi element to “Yes Man.” I think he just challenges himself to say “yes” more after a self-help seminar.

I would argue that the franchise has tried to do new things, actually, and nobody has liked any of it. That’s the problem, though. None of the films have had the weight, seriousness or bleakness of the original two films. Nor have they had the craftsmanship of a James Cameron level film maker. If you put a prestige Read more

io9 has been weirdly steadfast in its promotion of the “incel” narrative around this film. The movie is more of a story about the importance of public healthcare as a right than it is a story about incels. Weird takes, guys.

What I find most worrisome here is Miller’s critique of the time loop. Candidly, what made Terminator SO great was these people were fighting to prevent something that was, ultimately, inevitable. That commitment to trying to change the future was awesome. But it was also dark and sad because you knew nothing would Read more

Um... you’re acting as if Endgame is not a Marvel film. In Endgame, they joke about the world essentially ending and half of the population disappearing. You think that “Fat Thor” isn’t going to be played for laughs? Everything in a Marvel film is played that way. To think you’re going to get some deep dive into Read more

Epix currently makes one of the best shows on TV with Get Shorty and the folks producing have some impressive credentials (Killing Eve, Call the Midwife, etc.) so maybe this will surprise.
