Ezekiel Has an Extremely Bad Day on a Pretty Darned Good Walking Dead

When we last left Ezekiel, he and the soldiers of the Kingdom were getting shot to hell by a giant Gatling gun located at the top of the Saviours’ compound, shortly after about three solid hours of the king gloating that not a single of his people’s lives would be lost this day. Obviously, Ezekiel was rather wrong, but as last night’s episode showed his day just got worse from there. Read More >>

Forget the Rick-Negan War, a Much Bigger Conflict Is Brewing on The Walking Dead

Wow. The war between Rick and Negan we’d been teased with for two full seasons may have arrived—and is still in full-swing—but a different battle is taking place simultaneously, and it’s arguably the more important one. For eons, Rick has preached to his people it’s “us” or “them.” Now, he’s finally starting to see he may have gone too far—and for those he’s leading, it may be too late. Read More >>

On The Walking Dead, Jesus Saves

Alexandria, Hilltop, and the Kingdom continued their assault on the Saviors last night on several fronts. The result was The Walking Dead turning into a live-action video game with barely any zombies in it, for the most part. But there were a few interesting conflicts scattered in there that didn’t involve gunfire—often involving the post-apocalypse’s longhaired prince of peace. Read More >>

The Walking Dead Is Back and Rick Has Already Messed Up So, So Bad

Season 8 sees the three big settlements- Rick and the Alexandrians, Maggie and Hilltop, and Ezekiel and the Kingdom band together to strike the first blow against Negan and Saviours, but it’s no spoiler to say something goes very, very wrong. This is The Walking Dead, after all. Though if you haven't watched the season 8 premiere yet, do be aware that we are going to go very in-depth here. Spoilers follow. Read More >>

The Game of Thrones Finale Wasn’t Perfect, But it Made the Season a Hell of a Lot Better

After six episodes that have been incredible, infuriating, revealing, confusing, and epic, last night’s Game of Thrones finale had a great many things to answer for. They were the answers needed to help recalibrate the show’s uneven seventh season so it ended up greater than the sum of its inconsistent parts—even if that doesn’t equal the show’s best seasons.

Game of Thrones is at its Best and Worst Right Now

If the cracks in Game of Thrones’ post-books storytelling were starting to show last week, they’ve now erupted into to actual fault lines. Last night’s episode was sometimes baffling, and occasionally outright sloppy on a storytelling level, as characters made countless questionable decisions—and yet the show continues to astonish with such incredibly epic, fantastic moments that it almost didn’t matter. Almost. Read More >>

On Game of Thrones, Daenerys Unleashed Hell and It Was Glorious

Where to even begin? “The Spoils of Conquest” was the reason we watch Game of Thrones, one of those episodes that starts entertaining and ends with an epic spectacle it’s hard to believe you’re actually seeing. And all it took was Daenerys tossing clever men’s clever plans in the garbage, and then setting a record number of actors on fire. Read More >>

Tonight’s Game of Thrones and the Impossible Expectations of Ice Meeting Fire

About a million things happened on “The Queen’s Justice” tonight, but there’s only thing that really matters—the long, long, long-awaited moment where the King in the North met the Mother of Dragons, and the series’ two main characters finally came face-to-face. The scene could not have been more anticipated… and maybe that was the problem. Read More >>

Captain Marvel Will Be Fighting Skrulls in the ’90s in Her Movie

We still have a long time to wait before Marvel finally brings us the Captain Marvel movie we’ve (I’ve) all been waiting for, but at least we got some new details at studio head honcho Kevin Feige at Comic-Con: She’s going to be fighting the shape-changing aliens the Skrulls, Nick Fury has a major role but more importantly has two eyes, because the movie is set in the ‘90s. Whaaaaaa?

Jurassic Park is So Much More Unnerving When the Dinosaurs are From That Godawful ’90s Sitcom

Yes. The genius illustrator Jen Lewis has taken the two pinnacles of dinosaur entertainment — Jurassic Park and that disturbing ‘90s sitcom about prehistoric suburban dino-puppets — and combined their DNA to create something both wonderful and terrifying. Life truly has found a way! Read More >>

Hear the Animated Justice League Reunite for an Awesome Live-Read

The live-action Justice League movie may end up being a stinker, but at least we’ll always have the animated TV series. At this past weekend’s Denver Comic Con, the voice cast reunited to do a live reading of the three-part series finale, “Starcrossed,” and it’s great. Warning, though: After you see it, you may need to binge watch a few episodes, too. Read More >>

Do Not Watch These Two New Wonder Woman Clips, Because They Are Too Awesome

Given these tumultuous times, there's a real comfort in knowing that WB/DC somehow managed to get a live-action Wonder Woman movie right while hilariously flubbing Batman and Superman. We should all be immensely looking forward to the film, which is why I very recommend you don't watch these new, completely amazing clips. Read More >>

This Game Of Thrones Fan Film May Be The Only Prequel We Need

As George RR Martin and HBO try to figure out which (and how many!) of the five Game of Thrones spin-offs they're working on, a small group of indie filmmakers in Belfast have taken it upon themselves to make their own prequel, titled "The Wild Wolf", a short depicting Ned's doomed brother Brandon Stark and Catelyn Tully's betrothal, and Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish's fateful decision.
