'Godless': Why Netflix's Brutal, Timely Western Is a Must-See
"This here's the paradise of the locust, the lizard, the snake. It's the land of the bleeding rifle."

So snarls murderous outlaw Frank Griffin in the monologue that gives Godless, the new seven-episode Netflix miniseries premiering on November 22nd, its title. Leading a pack of marauders out to terrorize and slaughter every man, woman, and child that crosses their path, he’s not merely a creature of the American West in the 1880s. Griffin is some otherworldly manifestation of it, a reminder that anyone who ventures into this borderless, lawless

‘Justice League’ Is Proof that Not Every Superhero Movies Needs a Post-Credit Scene

Looking back on the franchise’s unprecedented financial success, popularity and critical acclaim, the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be seen as the blueprint of the modern superhero movie. From entwining individual franchises together into a cinematic universe (something attempted in nearly every genre these days) to its light, breezy tone, it has consistently proven to succeed where so many would-be rival franchises have failed time and time again. One of the most anticipated feature promoted in the McU – other than all of those Stan Lee cameos – is the post-credit scene: one final, short scene to end the movie with.

The Top Uses of Harry Connick Jr. Songs in Movies or TV

It’s difficult to know sometimes if Harry Connick Jr. is really a singer or an actor, or if he’s just as comfortable doing both since he’s pretty good in either venue. But the thing is that he’s got a good voice, though it seems to be just on the edge of times of being not quite good enough to be considered superstar quality.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about 80s Classic “Summer School”

Summer School was an awesome movie. There, I’ve said it, it’s out and I don’t care who knows it. I mean come on, do you realize this stars Mark Harmon before the Gibbs era? He was actually a laid back, carefree guy in this movie and it was great. Plus, it actually stars a couple of other personalities you might recognize and has one of the absolute best gore scenes in a comedy that anyone has ever seen, period. No one likes to go to summer school unless they’re secretly an emotional masochist, but this film was just too great

A Few Cartoon Mashups You’ll Get a Kick out Of

Cartoon mashups are something that a lot of people get a kick out of and are a lot of fun to watch when they do happen. They don’t seem to occur all that much anymore for some reason though. I can recall when the Jetsons and the Flintstones had a crossover and it was pretty funny. I know that G.I. Joe and the Transformers have had a crossover and that just became a giant mess. The only problem with crossovers and mashups is that essentially one or the other will have to assert some kind dominance and that means the

There’s a good reason why Democratic Senator Al Franken should still be considered to be in the wrong but also shouldn’t be considered as criminal as everyone else. It has a lot to do with accountability. Franken is yet another name on the growing list of those that have been accused of sexual misconduct as his case was brought to light by his accuser, TV host and sports broadcaster Leeann Tweeden. She alleged that Franken groped and kissed her without consent in 2006, and unlike a few individuals being accused Franken owned up to the act and made a public

A couple of ghosts from Mr. Robot seasons past reappeared this week, as Elliot and company dealt with the fallout from last week’s tragedy.

Watch This Creepy Cute Cartoon Entitled “The Summoning”

The Summoning was created by Australian artist Elyse Castro and released by Sony Pictures Animation and Frederator Studios on their Cartoon Hangover YouTube channel. Upon first watching you get the idea that this is going to be something creepy but cute, and possibly highly disturbing. Well, you were right if you thought that. There’s a certain advantage to posting such videos to YouTube, and it’s that kids might have to really search to find them. The chances are good they might find them before their ‘parents do but there’s also a good chance with this one that they either won’t know what they’re watching or that they won’t

Prediction: Five Reasons The Aquaman Movie is Doomed to Fail

No one wants a movie to fail no matter how much they might not like it. But Aquaman is kind of destined for failure just because it’s not the most interesting story to ever come out of the Justice League, sorry to say. The character looks cool, he’s got cool powers, and with Jason Momoa as the lead role he could definitely pull it off, if a miracle happened and the writers and director didn’t kill it the way they’ve been doing to most of the other movies. Personally he could be a much cooler hero than the rest of
