This Animated Short Illustrates What Happens When You Take Minimalism To An Extreme

The title of Scorch Motion's short, Life Without Stuff, suggests a solid anti-consumerist philosophy — something everyone, not just hoarders, could probably stand to embrace. Unless, of course, that "stuff" happens to be very much in use and necessary when it suddenly disappears. Poof! Read More >>

Here’s What the Next Alien Prequel Needs to Do (and What It Needs to Avoid)

Though Alien: Covenant was basically met with the audience equivalent of a shrug, director Ridley Scott has plans for at least one more Alien prequel film, with a script already in hand. We have no idea where the story is heading next. But as rabid Alien fans, we have some suggestions... and some demands. Read More >>

Predator Is Brilliant Because It’s Rambo, But With an Alien

As Hollywood legend tells it, 1987's Predator—which turns 30 today—was directly inspired by the Rocky series. But the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic even more closely resembles Sylvester Stallone’s other big 1980s franchise, Rambo, specifically 1985's First Blood Part II. The major difference is that Predator improves upon the formula by adding a cunning, killer alien to the mix. Read More >>

A new featurette, “Reimagining The Mist,” explores how the show’s creator turned a 180-page novella into a series, while still staying true to the spirit of King’s tale. Read More >>

The Stranger Things Soundtrack Cassette Contains Potentially Lethal Amounts of ’80s Nostalgia

The Mummy is Monstrous, Just for All the Wrong Reasons

The Mummy is the first movie in the “Dark Universe,” a planned series of films that will intertwine the ghoulish tales of the classic Universal Monsters. But it contains zero scares and is devoid of any sense of fun. What it does have is whole lot of Tom Cruise, and a Mummy whose motivation feels very, very problematic. Read More >>

The Latest Teaser for The Mist Warns That Nature Is Out for Revenge

Spike TV’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist is already looking like must-watch horror TV, with mysterious monsters and human monsters causing all kinds of chaos and gore.

Lucifer Really Shouldn’t Be As Good As It Is

Lucifer just wrapped up its second season, resolving its "Satan's mum comes to Earth and causes chaos" plotline in typically over-the-top style. The show is consistently nuts — a mix of crime-solving, relationship drama, spiritual angst and cheeky humour that should feel overstuffed, especially given the hero is the literal devil. But somehow, it's consistently entertaining. Read More >>

Alien’s Ripley Is My Favourite Action Hero Ever

Not heroine. Hero, period. While it's rad that Ellen Ripley happens to be a woman, that doesn't at all impact her level of badarsery — though it does inform her character in ways that make her much more interesting than virtually any other cinematic hero. She's complicated, she feels real, and I have total confidence the Alien movies would not have become classics without her. Read More >>
