Solo Harrison Ford reaction

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters this week, and Variety has a detailed cover story about the film’s famously troubled trip to the big screen.

Rinko Kikuchi westworld

This week’s episode of Westworld, “Akane no Mai,” finally walked us into Shogun World, a sister park set in Japan’s Edo period. As different as the costumes, culture, and scenery are, viewers looking forward to the introduction of a brave new world, unlike anything we had seen on the show before, may have been slightly underwhelmed by some of the deliberately samey aspects of Shogun World. As our own Chris Evangelista put it in his review: “Shogun World may not be all it’s cracked up to be.”

The park has noticeable similarities to Westworld and there are two very good reasons for that. To talk about the similarities and how they fit both the story Westworld is trying to tell and its cinematic influences, we’ll need to venture into spoiler territory for Westworld, season 2, episode 5.

So unsheathe you samurai swords and let’s charge right in like a band of ronin show-watchers in the age of Peak TV.

Deadpool 2 Extended Cut

Deadpool 2 only just arrived in theaters this past weekend, but director David Leitch is already teasing a director’s cut.

Right now, the cut of Deadpool 2 that audiences can see in theaters clocks in at exactly 2 hours. But before that cut came together, there was an early version of the film that David Leitch put together in order to show producers. The initial cut of the movie came in at 2 hours and 12 minutes, and that’s the version Leitch is working on restoring with Ryan Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

So what will the Deadpool 2 extended cut include? We know a couple of the scenes that will make it back into the movie, and it sounds like there will be plenty of new jokes for fans to soak up as well. Read More »

LEGO BrickHeadz

LEGO has really hit their stride over the past decade when it comes to making incredible building block sets that are cleverly designed. That’s especially true when it comes to bringing characters, vehicles and settings from our favorite movies to life. They’ve gotten some help from LEGO Ideas with the likes of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future. Now they have their own creations for these franchises and more that you can now build and collect yourself.

Rather than stick with the traditional LEGO sets, the building block company has a more recent BrickHeadz line that has taken off. They’re stylized versions of characters from movies, TV and comics that you build with LEGO pieces and can display on your shelf. Think of them as the Funko POP versions of LEGO characters. And recently, they’ve delivered some new editions for Ghostbusters, The Incredibles, Jurassic World, Back to the Future, Harry Potter and more. Read More »
