If you’ve booted up Netflix recently and found yourself endlessly scrolling through the streaming service’s library and finding nothing of interest to watch, you’re certainly not alone. Movie and television fans have noted that the company’s selection seems to have dwindled in recent years and now the math has arrived to back this up. No, you’re not going crazy – Netflix is shrinking and the numbers are kind of shocking.

Grace and Frankie may not inspire the breathless hype of a Daredevil or even the giddy nostalgia of a Fuller House, but it’s got plenty of charms of its own — starting with its two lovely leads, Jane Fonda as WASP-y Grace and Lily Tomlin as granola Frankie. The first season saw these polar opposites form an unlikely bond after their husbands (played by Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen) announced they were leaving their wives for each other, and the second season sees their friendship tested and further tempered by health scares, new romances, and more. Watch the Grace and Frankie season 2 trailer below. Read More »
There have been a couple different official Blu-ray releases of the original Star Wars trilogy. First it arrived in a box set that featured all six movies, and then they were re-released in individual steelbooks last year leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters. However, we’re still waiting for the rumored official Blu-ray release of the theatrical cuts without the special edition “enhancements” that have not pleased most Star Wars fans.
However, if you already have the original Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray in some form, but you’re looking to make the trio of movies look a little more aesthetically pleasing on your shelf, we have something cool for you. One fan has created custom Blu-ray covers with art from Ralph McQuarrie that you can print out for your own collection. See the artwork below. Read More »

X-Men fans have been waiting for years for Gambit to strike out on his own solo adventure, but they may have to stay patient just a little while longer. Channing Tatum‘s superhero adventure is in rewrites right now, and won’t shoot until late 2016. If you’ve mainly been looking forward to Gambit because of director Doug Liman‘s involvement, though, there’s a silver lining to this delay. The schedule shift has freed Liman up to direct The Wall, Amazon Studios’ first-ever original movie. Read More »

Taking in a domestic haul of just over $166 million this past weekend, it’s no secret that a lot of people went to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It took decades for the deleted scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy to eventually emerge from the Lucasfilm vaults and watching them was a surreal experience. Here was new Star Wars footage, original trilogy footage, that we hadn’t seen a hundred times before. We can sit around all day and complain about the failings of that big Blu-ray box set, but those excised scenes made it all worthwhile. Deleted scenes are usually deleted for a reason, but watching them is often key to understanding how a film is shaped in the editing room. Here’s what simply had to go, for one reason or another.
Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait thirty-something years to watch deleted scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as they will be included on the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release. In fact, a new trailer has arrived teasing these scenes, because those monsters at Disney know just how interested we are in watching any and all additional footage.

We’ll be running a full review of Daredevil season 2 very soon, but here’s the CliffNotes version for those who are curious: it’s very good and a significant improvement over the first season in many key areas. It also has its fair share of flaws (and odd deviations from the Marvel canon), but it’s easy to see the path ahead for the series. There actually seems to be a real plan this time around. And it’s paced relatively well!
One area where the new season consistently matches the first season is the action. This new batch of episodes has no shortage of broken limbs, smashed faces, battered torsos. Matt Murdock walks away from every fight bleeding and bruised and his opponents rarely walk away at all. For fans of well-choreographed fisticuffs, it’s good stuff. And of course, the best action scene from the season has made its way online so you can revisit it again.
