the dangerous book for boys trailer

It’s all well and good to romanticize the childhoods of the ’80s, when kids biked around freely and made complicated contraptions to prank unsuspecting adults. But what about the kids of today? You can warn them about the dangers as much as you want through episodes of Black Mirror, but maybe it’s not fear they need, but imagination.

That’s where The Dangerous Book for Boys comes in. The new Amazon Prime TV series adapts the British guide book into a six-episode comedy about a smartphone-obsessed boy who discovers that you don’t need technology to have fun. You just need an eclectic handbook passed down to you by your dead father.

The Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro cameo

Directors have been making cameos in their own movies since the early days of cinema, so it’s appropriate that The Shape of Water – which is at least partially a throwback to classic Hollywood – would include a cameo from its own filmmaker as well. It also seems appropriate that an iconoclast director like Guillermo del Toro wouldn’t have a traditional cameo in his movie; even if you were straining your eyes to look for him, you’d never see del Toro’s face on screen during the entire run time. That’s because he appears in a more unconventional cameo, aiding actor Doug Jones in bringing his exotic fish-man creature to life.

Harry Potter LEGO Sets

It’s been years since any Harry Potter themed LEGO sets were manufactured. There were a variety of sets available when the original film franchise was at the height of its popularity, but ever since the original franchise came to an end in 2011, the creation of any new sets has been stagnant. But that’s about to change.

A new line of Harry Potter LEGO sets will be released starting in the second half of 2018 with the Hogwarts Great Hall playset. The new sets will bring to life scenes and characters from both the original Harry Potter franchise and the more recent Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise.

Four Great Guillermo del Toro Audio Commentaries

Guillermo del Toro audio commentaries

There’s one word that pops up more than any other in filmmaker Guillermo del Toro‘s commentaries: love.

An Academy Award nominee this year for The Shape of Water, del Toro has nothing but affection for his worlds and characters, even some of the most monstrous of his creations. The director always finds light in the darkest corners of his filmography. As often as del Toro is lauded for his imagination, his commentaries are a reminder that, as a storyteller, he doesn’t get enough credit for the amount of empathy he displays.

The Mexican filmmaker is constantly wearing his passion and sincerity on his sleeve, partially because he’s never at a loss for words in his commentaries. I’ve listened to some of the tracks recommended below more than once, and the second time around, it was still like holding a key to unlock the mind of the visionary for two wonderful hours. Commentary tracks were made for directors like Guillermo del Toro.

Here are four must-hear Guillermo del Toro audio commentaries.
