Fantastic Beasts Easter Eggs

In the time since Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been released, fans have already been obsessing about every detail in the movie as if it were a new Harry Potter book. And since the screenplays for these new movies that take place in the wizarding world are written by J.K. Rowling, that makes perfect sense. But for those who haven’t taken the time to dig any deeper into the events of the movie directed by David Yates, the characters who take part in it, or what this first movie means for the sequels in the way, a new video will explain everything you need to know.

Last fall, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn enticed fans of the Marvel Studios movie by revealing that there was one big easter egg somewhere in the movie that no one had yet found.

But so far, apparently no one has found it, making some fans think it’s not really there at all.

Well, for anyone doubting the existence of this unfound Guardians of the Galaxy easter egg, director James Gunn is willing to put his money where his mouth is for those who thinks it doesn’t exists. How does $100,000 sound? Read More »

Captain Marvel Easter Egg in Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange hit theaters this past weekend, and as is the case with any Marvel Studios movie, there were plenty of Easter eggs and references to the rest of the franchises and the comic books that inspired them. But there was one particular Easter egg that you definitely heard, but which may not have actually registered as an Easter egg, and it has to do with Captain Marvel.

In order to discuss this Easter egg, we have to talk about a scene that might be considered a minor spoiler by some, so we’re going to dive into the details about this Captain Marvel Easter egg in Doctor Strange after the jump. Read More »

black mirror connections

By now, you’ve probably binge-watched your way through Black Mirror Season 3 and are trying to decide which episode you enjoyed the most. While you’ve been enjoying Charlie Brooker‘s dark science fiction anthology series, you may not have noticed that all of the episodes are actually connected, albeit loosely. And no, I’m not talking about the fact the connected theme about the consequences of technology. I’m talking about actual storyline and character connections.

Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker has noted that “each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they’re all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes’ time if we’re clumsy.” Although recently on a Reddit Ask Me Anything, Booker admitted that they all actually “take place in the same psychological universe” with “sometimes explicit links.” Hit the jump, and we’ll explore the Black Mirror connections.

Deadpool MCU Raft

Fox’s Marvel universe and Disney’s Marvel universe are two completely places. They have to be, for legal reasons — Fox has the rights to basically anything involving mutants, and Disney has just about everything else. So the storylines don’t intersect, the characters don’t meet, and as far as either franchise is concerned the other one simply doesn’t exist. But leave it to Deadpool to try and bend the rules with a sneaky reference.

Apparently one of the Deadpool deleted scenes involves The Raft, an offshore prison designed to hold superpowered people. The location was first introduced in the comics about ten years ago, but you might also remember it from Captain America: Civil War just a few months ago.  Read More »

Who Killed Robin

If you’ve already seen Suicide Squad this weekend, you know that there are plenty of references to the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, not to mention some easter eggs and set-ups for future films in the DC Comics cinematic universe. However, there’s one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-detail that changes our perspective on a certain event that’s only alluded to in the aforementioned superhero battle.

In Batman v Superman, there’s a key moment where Bruce Wayne takes a moment to glance at the suit of his former sidekick Robin as it’s displayed in a glass case. Spray painted on the suit is, “Ha ha ha! Joke’s on you, Batman!” We’ve all accepted this to mean that The Joker killed Robin, however, a little moment in Suicide Squad indicates that he wasn’t the only one responsible.

Ghostbusters Easter Eggs

Now that the dust has settled around the hotly debated Ghostbusters reboot from director Paul Feig, we wanted to take a look back at all the Easter eggs and references the new film made to the original 1984 classic from director Ivan Reitman. One of the biggest complaints was that the reboot aimed for too much fan service with an abundance of references to the original film, right down to cameos from almost every single key cast member.

Once you check out our complete Ghostbusters Easter eggs guide below, you can decide for yourself. Some of them are obvious, others might have gone over your head. But we rounded up all of them, because there might be some viewers out there who aren’t as well-versed with the original Ghostbusters as some of the most hardcore fans. That’s why you’ll see us referencing everything from the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to a tribute the late Harold Ramis to a couple of obscure ghosts you forgot about. Read More »

The Neon Demon ending questions

Nicolas Winding Refn‘s The Neon Demon is a beautifully shot yet polarizing film. It’s either shallow, pretentious, sensationalistic and self-indulgent or a bold haunting hypnotic work of suspense. I’m still not sure if I liked it or not, but It has certainly remained with me since my viewing of the film over the weekend. My reaction is typical — the movie has gotten a very mixed reaction from critics and film geeks.

My viewing has prompted a deep dive into interviews and analysis of the film, and I thought I’d share some of the insights into The Neon Demon ending, the symbology and metaphors both obvious and more hidden. I’ll also attempt to answer some of your The Neon Demon questions.

Finding Dory Easter Eggs

Whenever a new Pixar Animation movie hits theaters, you just know there are going to be a bunch of Easter eggs and references to other movie from the computer animation studio. Finding Dory is no different, and even though the film has only been in theaters for a few days, there’s already a list of Easter eggs out there that you may not have noticed.

Some of the Finding Dory Easter eggs are really easy to spot, such as the traditional A113 nod to the classroom number at the California Institute of Arts where many Pixar and Disney animators got their start. Others, like references to the brace-face Darla from Finding Nemo and a reference to WALL-E are a little more difficult to spot in your first viewing. Plus, there’s a few Easter eggs that we know are in the movie, but we’re not entirely sure where they are
