​10 Things In The Cinematic Marvel Universe That Make No Damn Sense

Marvel's self-made superhero movies are box office blockbusters and massively fun. But they're not perfect; like so many summer action flicks, they can be plenty dumb, and there's no sense in pretending otherwise. Here are 10 plot holes from Marvel's movies that we're still trying not to think about. » 4/07/14 10:31am 4/07/14 10:31am

This was by far the most entertaining Agents of SHIELD yet

Last night's Agents of SHIELD was entertaining, high-energy, action-packed, fun and a little bit bonkers — basically, everything we've always wanted from this show. It didn't hurt that the Marvel Universe elements felt colorful and awesome, without making the main characters less grounded. All in all, more like this… » 3/12/14 2:49pm 3/12/14 2:49pm

​Why the 1989 Batman movie is still the best

Greetings, friends! I'm proud to announce my first line of specialty stamps available here in the post-apocalypse! It's a set of drawings of refrigerators, light bulbs, fast food, air conditioners, toilet paper and the like. I call it the "Shit We Really, Really Miss" collection. Now onto your letters! » 2/12/14 8:07am 2/12/14 8:07am

Thor and Loki are best bros in the full-length Thor 2 gag reel

As predicted, that 48-second snippet released last week was only a teaser; here's the full 3.5-minute gag reel from Thor: The Dark World. There are more dangerous things in the universe than Malekith, and they include recalcitrant ravens, Natalie Portman's propensity for violence, and Thor's cape. » 2/05/14 12:29pm 2/05/14 12:29pm

Loki isn't the only mischief-maker in the Thor 2 gag reel

Even gods can fall on their divine asses, as this gag reel from Thor: The Dark World reveals. Actually, since it's short and it doesn't include any flubbed lines, I'm betting it's just a small snippet of a larger gag reel, designed to make us want to buy the Blu-ray on February 25th. » 1/31/14 11:40am 1/31/14 11:40am

​Why reading superhero comics is like making a deal with the devil

Hello, postal pals! It's another cold, snowy day in the post-apocalypse, and I'm stuck on the road, by which I mean I'm in the middle of some forest somewhere. It's so cold I had to cut open my horse so I could crawl inside to stay warm… except my horse was a pony, and I can really only get my head and shoulders in… » 1/22/14 8:04am 1/22/14 8:04am

Dueling Movies: Two Films About the Same Thing at the Same Time

This weekend sees the release of The Legend of Hercules — and then later this year, we'll see a second Hercules movie. This seems to happen a lot: everybody gets the same bright idea at the same time, and competing films are rushed into production. Here are a ton of cases where weirdly similar films did battle. » 1/09/14 1:07pm 1/09/14 1:07pm

The creators of the stunning Girl with the Dragon Tattoo title sequence were also the masters behind Thor: The Dark World's prologue battle. And now Blur Studio has unleashed a fantastic VFX that shows how the stunning battle between Malekith and Odin's father, King Bor.

​Why do we hate so many female characters so much?

I seem to recall in 2013 there was a big deal about Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah coinciding. Well, since the post-apocalypse happened so soon after that, I guess that's why we kind of ended up merging Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas into a month-long celebration of gift-giving, drinking, and good… » 12/04/13 8:20am 12/04/13 8:20am

Why the original finale to Evangelion is the only one that matters

There are no questions about zombies, the ending of Man of Steel, or superhero genitalia in this week's mailbag. I should be happy, but instead I'm just suspicious. What are you people planning?! Hrmm. Anyways, you'll have to content yourself with the best Avengers stories, why The Dark Tower can't be animated and a… » 11/20/13 8:00am 11/20/13 8:00am
