How Justice League Should Have Ended

While Warner Bros. Pictures figures out how to proceed with the DC Extended Universe after the box office disappointment that was Justice League, the folks over at How It Should Have Ended are kicking the DC Comics superheroes while they’re down.

Not only do they take shots at the threads that began in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice but end up going nowhere in Justice League, but they also mock the awful villain Steppenwolf, and continue to harp on Superman’s awful mustache removal and more. Find out how Justice League should have ended below. Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi Milk Creature Featurette

The home video release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (now available on Blu-ray and DVD) gives fans an in-depth look behind the scenes of the making of the latest chapter in the sci-fi saga by way of the feature length documentary The Director and the Jedi. But there’s one piece of production that fans have been dying to know more about: the seaside creature where Luke Skywalker gets his delicious green milk.

A new Star Wars: The Last Jedi featurette takes a close look at the creation of the creature known as the Thala-Siren. The creation of any new alien in the Star Wars universe is an extensive process, but this featurette shows how much thought went into the creation of this key species, especially when it comes to where the green milk comes from.

Donald Glover Reacts to Deadpool Cancellation

Over the weekend, we learned the surprising and disappointing news that both FX and Donald Glover had parted ways with the Deadpool animated series they were working on with Marvel Television. This happened despite the fact that the show had been given a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes that would have seen Donald Glover writing and executive producing the series along with his brother, Stephen Glover.

In what seems to be a playful but also telling reaction to the Deadpool animated series cancellation, Donald Glover posted a series of updates to Twitter in the form of 14 script pages that appear to have commentary about why the series may have been axed. They’re simultaneously hilarious and seemingly not-too-pleased with the cancellation. Read More »

Wes Anderson Honest Trailer

As loyal cinephiles, we love the work of Wes Anderson. While you’d be hard-pressed to say that Wes Anderson has grown as a filmmaker throughout his career, you can’t deny that he has a style all his own that has connected with a particular audience. You can call them hipsters, or you can call them craft beer enthusiasts, or whatever you want, but we’re note going to judge anyone’s love of Wes Anderson.

Now the director behind movies such as The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel is taking some jabs from the folks at Honest Trailers. And just as we said before, Wes Anderson hasn’t really evolved much as a director, and that’s why this edition of Honest Trailers takes aim at all of the filmmaker’s movies. Read More »

Bright Honest Trailer

Netflix’s first blockbuster took the gritty cop drama of movies like Training Day and End of Watch and mixed them with the magic and fantasy of Hellboy and Lord of the Rings. If that premise sounds like it would make for an awesome movie, you’d be right. But unfortunately we don’t live in the universe where that movie exists. Instead we got David Ayer‘s misfire Bright.

Bright follows the unlikely partnership of Will Smith, a human police officer, paired with Joel Edgerton, an orc police officer. Instead of the tension that exists between various races on the streets, we get the tension that exists between different species. And for some reason, as Honest Trailers points out, the world the story exists in isn’t much different from today’s world despite having magic be part of it for over 200 years. In fact, it’s almost exactly the same, and that’s just stupid. Read More »
