HBO’s hit comedy series Silicon Valley is coming to an end this year with the sixth season. Not only is this the final season, but it’s also a bit of a shorter season with only seven episodes wrapping up the exploits of the tech company Pied Piper and the computer geniuses who founded it. Now the first Silicon Valley season 6 trailer has arrived, and it prominently features Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) testifying in front of the US Congress about the security of user data. And not unlike the real world instance of Mark Zuckerberg doing the same thing, it’s very cringeworthy. Read More »

Super Mario Bros. The Movie is one of the weirdest and most mystifying major studio releases of all-time. In an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the Nintendo video game franchise of the same name, Hollywood Pictures and Buena Vista Pictures, the movie brought the game to life in one of the most perplexing fashions, trying to shoehorn as many references to the original game as possible in a nonsensical way. The result was a dimension-hopping blockbuster bomb, and believe it or not, there’s more of it we haven’t seen yet. Read More »

It sounds unbelievable, but there are over 500,000 stray cats in New York City alone.

Watch The Cat Rescuers trailer to meet these cat saviors and, of course, see some kitties. Read More »
