Modern Family struggles to make death meaningful
"Legacy" is a very strange episode of Modern Family, and one that once again deals with a character death in a rather mystifying way. After a holiday break and last week's solid but rather inconsequential episode, "Legacy" doesn't exactly get back to the season's overarching storylines, but it does introduce a new,…

Gabe Gundacker's Dolittle-themed "Zendaya Is Meechee" follow-up is here to quench our thirsts
Although the conversation around this year's Oscars snubs remains both ongoing and fractious, it still pales in comparison to the outcry that broke out last year, when a true travesty was unleashed on the movie-viewing world: The snubbing of Gabriel Gundacker's "Zendaya Is Meechee" from consideration for Best…

Friends reunion now a firm "Maybe!" at HBO Max
Few TV shows in the history of the medium have been more aggressively pursued for, well, more than NBC's former ratings juggernaut Friends.

Daniel Radcliffe is a loser with gun hands in this loony trailer for Guns Akimbo
Daniel Radcliffe, refined English thespian, has guns bloodily bolted to his hands in the trailer for Guns Akimbo, a grimy-looking exploitation flick tapping, at least in the below trailer, into that Neveldine-Taylor magic. That's not to be reductive, of course, as Kiwi director Jason Lei Howden has an aesthetic all…

Burt Ward says producers wanted him take pills to shrink his penis while filming Batman
Superheroes were a quaint thing in the ‘60s, with Adam West and Burt Ward leading the charge as a much sillier spin on Batman and Robin than we're accustomed to seeing these days.

We Keep Having The Same Video Game Arguments And It's Driving Me Bonkers
In a 2016 interview, Escape From Tarkov designer Pavel Dyatlov said women weren't in the game because they "can't handle that amount of stress."
