Vampires Receive a Temporary Stay of Execution in Shadows’ Finale

Back From the Dead, NOS4A2 Returns

Steven Yeun Finds Hard-Earned Success After Walking Dead

Bumblebee 2: Electric Boogaloo

Lego Masters Builds an Instant Classic With Star Wars

Say what you will about The Last Jedi or The Rise of Skywalker, but pairing the Star Wars Universe with LEGOs will ALWAYS be a pop-culture treat. Unsurprisingly, when C-3PO and R2-D2 made a guest appearance on a recent episode… Continue Reading →

All-Star Vampires Unite for Small-Screen Shadows

What If 12 Monkeys Predicted the Coronavirus Pademic?

Hey, remember the ’90s? Back when every one of Bruce Willis’ movies made $100 million and Brad Pitt was just beginning to flex his acting muscles (that’s Mr. Oscar Winner to you these days). I really feel like Goat Boy,… Continue Reading →
