Rugrats Reptar Bars

One of the most beloved cartoons to come out of Nickelodeon in the 1990s was Rugrats. Though the show lost its way after the movie turned the characters into more of a cash grab commodity, the first few seasons of the series are quirky, clever and full of fantastic pop culture references and parodes for cinephiles.

One of the most famous pieces of pop culture parody from Rugrats is the giant lizard monster known as Reptar. An obvious spoof of Godzilla, the green dinosaur had his own movie that Tommy Pickles and his friends tried to sneak around a multiplex to see, his own ice skating extravaganza, action figures and more. But easily the two most coveted pieces of Reptar memorabilia were the Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal, and now you can get your hands on both of them right now.

Find out where to get these Rugrats Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal below. Read More »

Mayhem trailer

Remember The Belko Experiment? It came out earlier this year and was a B-movie set in an office building about employees who were forced to kill each other at the behest of a mysterious voice who locked them inside. I found that film to be an ugly and largely pointless exercise in brutality, but if that didn’t scratch your itch for office-set murder movies, perhaps Mayhem, the newest film from director Joe Lynch (Everly), will be more up your alley. It certainly looks like it’s a hell of a lot more fun. Check out a couple of Mayhem trailers below.

lady bird trailer

Love hurts. Whether it’s platonic, romantic, or familial, the relationships that we build are rarely as clean or as kind as we usually see on screen. Part of what makes Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird so remarkable is her refusal to shy away from that ugliness and how, as a result, the film becomes all the more beautiful.

Lady Bird follows Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) as she navigates her last year of high school. Her dissatisfaction with her life in the suburbs (she wants to go to college on the East Coast) is compounded by financial anxieties — her family may not be able to afford tuition to the colleges she really wants to attend, and she pretends they’re in a different income bracket in order to impress her new friends — as well as her romantic hopes and disappointments, and her fractious relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf).

the alienist trailer

After years of playing Nazis and superhero villains, Daniel Brühl has finally landed a role that every young male protagonist can aspire to: the gifted criminal profiler. But this time, it’s in the 19th century!

The Alienist looks like the detective procedural got a gaslamp-lit makeover, with stars Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning teaming up to work as early criminal profilers in 1896, attempting to get into the mind of one of New York City’s first serial killers before they hunt him down.
