the lord of the rings reunion

In a time when the casts of cult TV shows and beloved movies are getting together virtually left and right, there is still only one Zoom reunion to rule them all and in the darkness bind them — or at least, provide us a small reprieve as the real world gets more distressing by the minute. Josh Gad has been uniting casts of Back to the FutureSplash, and The Goonies, with his Reunited Apart web series, but his latest one is the most epic reunion yet.

The cast of The Lord of the Rings got the Fellowship back together over Zoom to swap filming stories and show off the matching tattoos they got together. Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Ian McKellen, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, and Orlando Bloom all appeared and were soon joined by “many surprise” guests in the biggest Zoom reunion that Gad has held thus far. You can watch the entire hour-long The Lord of The Rings reunion below.

Final The Boys Trailer

In a few days, Amazon will bring a new group of superheroes to streaming, except this crew of superpowered individuals don’t seem anything like good guys. In fact, Amazon’s The Boys may be bringing us the most morally questionable group of superheroes since the Watchmen. Irresponsible with their powers, driven by greed and fame, and generally too cocky for their own good, these superheroes need to be put in their place. That’s exactly what Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the titular group of vigilantes aim to do, and their endeavor gets rather bloody, as you can see in the final The Boys trailer before the show’s premiere.

Thor Ragnarok Spoiler Review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.)

No one would ever accuse the Marvel Cinematic Universe of being dark and serious, but with Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel goes into full-comedy mode, crafting their funniest film to date. Perhaps finally realizing how inconsequential and dry the Thor films have been, Marvel hired What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi and let him go wild. The results are laugh-out-loud funny, albeit with a caveat: Thor: Ragnarok cares more about landing a great punchline or sight-gag than it does about plot.
