As we learned from last month’s confusion surrounding the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot, there can only be one Buffy. Now, it turns out, there can only be one Buffy title being produced at a time.
While we lie in wait for more news about the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot/sequel, creator Joss Whedon revealed that the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Dark Horse comic series will be wrapping up its lenghty run in the wake of Fox pulling the beloved show’s comic book license.

Could this sequel live up to the original’s candy-coated fever dream?

There’s been plenty of celebration regarding the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, but another beloved movie from 1993 is also worthy of honor, especially with Halloween around the corner.

There have been countless adaptations of Peter Pan over the years, but undoubtedly the most beloved take on J.M. Barrie’s classic fantasy is actually a sequel from director Steven Spielberg.
Hook takes the story of Peter Pan and basically forgets about the whole thing. Well, at least it makes it so that Peter Pan himself has forgotten all of his adventures in Neverland, opting to become a stressed out, grumpy business man named Peter Banning played by a totally clean shaven Robin Williams. But when Peter is forced to go back to Neverland to save his kidnapped children from Captain Hook, we get a magical adventure full of child abandonment and neglect, depressed pirates, and perpetual war between adults and kids. You know, a real family film perfect for the Honest Trailers treatment. Read More »
Peter Jackson delivered one of the best motion picture trilogies of all time with his adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy book series The Lord of the Rings. Unfortunately, he followed it up with the overlong, over-indulgent prequel trilogy based on The Hobbit, a single book that was significantly shorter than any of the single installments of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but somehow inexplicably expanded into an entire film trilogy.
However, That ’70s Show star Topher Grace, who will soon be seen playing Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke in Spike Lee’s latest movie Black KkKlansman, wasn’t content to just let The Hobbit exist as a trilogy that overstayed its welcome. Instead, just as he once cut down the seven hours of the Star Wars prequel trilogy into a single 85-minute movie, he took the 462 minutes of The Hobbit trilogy (or 532 minutes if we’re talking about the extended cuts) and assembled a two-hour version of the movie.
