Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society awards winners

It’s only been a few days since the members of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society released the nominees for their annual awards, and the winners have already been determined. However, don’t expect this to be an indication of how any of the major awards are going to go down later this season. Our editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is counted among this group, and the wide array of film critics from various backgrounds makes the results skew much further from the norm than you might expect at the Golden Globes or Oscars.

However, that actually makes the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society awards winners a little more interesting than the usual awards fare – they have awarded the adaptation of The Hate U Give Best Picture. How did the rest of the awards shake out ? Check out the full list below. Read More »

thanos snap name

The moment in Avengers: Infinity War when Thanos turns half the universe to dust is commonly referred to as the snap. After all, it was the snap of Thanos’ gauntlet-clad fingers that did the trick. But rather than just settle for that common label, Marvel has created not one, but two different official names for the event. And neither of them are very good! Will anyone in Avengers 4 refer to the moment by these names? Will you? Read More »

Survived Thanos' Snap

Not everyone went up in a puff of smoke after Avengers: Infinity War. Besides the original core Avengers team, who survived, two characters you probably forgot all about made it through as well: Stellan Skarsgård and Kat Dennings‘ characters Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis. There’s no mention of Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, though. But seeing as Portman appears to be done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that’s not very surprising.

Why Nick Fury Waited So Long To Call Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel

Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War…

The eleventh-hour call that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) made to Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) in the end credits of Avengers: Infinity War was a doozy of a scene that mostly served to hype up audiences for Carol Danvers’ highly-anticipated solo venture in 2019.

But as exciting as that moment was, it also throws a wrench into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s canon. Why did Fury wait so long to call a superhero who has been teased as one of the most powerful characters in the MCU? Why not whip out that communicator six years earlier like in, oh say, Avengers‘ Battle of New York? Yeah, we probably won’t find out the real reason until Captain Marvel hits theaters in March 2019, but the Captain Marvel Prelude comic reveals a few more answers about that last-minute Nick Fury Captain Marvel call.
