zack snyder short film snow steam iron

Zack Snyder’s short film Snow Steam Iron is now available to stream on the social network Vero.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

Not too long ago, we highlighted a new featurette for The LEGO Ninjago Movie that took us behind the scenes of the animated spin-off to The LEGO Movie. We got to meet the cast, see some improvisation done during dialogue recording, and see new footage from the movie. Now we get a different kind of glimpse behind the scenes, this time within the world of the movie itself.

A new fully animated featurette takes audiences “behind the bricks” of The LEGO Ninjago Movie, guided by the characters in the movie as if they were the real actors bringing the story to life. Not only does it provide some amusing introductions for the film’s characters, but it shows off a bunch of new footage from the movie as well. Read More »

Watchmen TV show

Earlier this year, news broke that Lost and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof was in talks with HBO to adapt Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal superhero graphic novel Watchmen into a TV series. About a month later, Lindelof denied having met with HBO about the project…but now, thanks to an Instagram post from the man himself, we know that he’s officially begun work on the Watchmen TV show.

Just Getting Started trailer 2

Director Ron Shelton built his career making sports movies like Bull DurhamWhite Men Can’t Jump, Tin Cup, and Play It To The Bone, but now his most recent feature was 2003’s Hollywood Homicide, a quasi-buddy comedy that featured the main characters butting heads but ultimately working together to achieve a goal. Now, 14 years later, he’s back with Just Getting Started, yet another film in which the leads squabble and eventually join forces. But this time, the gimmick is that he’s directing old guys: Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones star in this goofy-looking comedy, and you can watch the new trailer right here.

channel-zero-no-end-house-amy-forsyth3

When Channel Zero first premiered in 2016, it was clear that a new age of anthology series was upon us. SYFY’s creepypasta-inspired program kicked off with Candle Cove, a tale of a haunted children’s show that drives kids to murder. Thanks to the popularity of Black Mirror and American Horror Story, the series brought new life to the horror anthology formula, making Candle Cove one of the scariest tales to hit the small-screen last year. Now, we’re just days away from the season 2 premiere, and from what we’ve seen, things are about to get a whole lot crazier. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to The No-End House.

“We want every season to be a different flavor of horror; we want every season to give the viewer a new experience,” series creator Nick Antosca explained on a conference call with select members of the press. It’s an intriguing statement, for sure, and one that rings true with No-End House. Inspired by Brian Russell’s original creepypasta tale, the new six-episode season follows Margot Sleator as she attempts to escape the horrors of an elusive pop-up home-haunt while reconciling a trauma from her past in the process.

wonder woman blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Remember physical media? It still exists! I swear! And while streaming is great, there’s something to be said for a Blu-ray release, especially considering not everything is available via streaming. So we’re going to dust off our physical media release column and take it around the track. There’s still life in this one yet. Join me, won’t you?

This week on Blu-ray we have the best film in the DCEU, a charming rom-com, a Steven Spielberg classic, and a beautiful film where Kristen Stewart eats a sandwich.

Netflix penis drawing

Update: The controversy must have reached the ears of Netflix executives, because the episode in question has now been removed from the streaming site. Our original article follows.

Last week, Netflix released the first season of American Vandal, an eight-episode documentary parody of true crime stories like The Jinx and Making a Murderer in which the central mystery revolves around someone spray-painting penises on teachers’ cars in the school’s parking lot. But now it looks like Netflix has a real life dick mystery on their hands, because an angry mother has noticed that an artist snuck a drawing of an erect penis into the background of a children’s cartoon that airs on the streaming service.
