Godzilla: King of the Monsters Is Big, Dumb, and Beautiful

The very first thing Godzilla: King of the Monsters presents to you is the blaring skree-onk of Godzilla’s iconic caterwauling cry. It sets the tone immediately: This is not going to go how 2014's Godzilla reboot went. It’s also perhaps not going to go the way you might have expected it to. Read More >>

In the Gorgeous New Lion King Trailer, the Circle of Life Has Never Looked So Good

We didn’t really need an indicator beyond the initial trailer that Jon Favreau’s Lion King re-imagining was going to be a sumptuous, familiar take on the Disney icon.

A High School in America Turned Alien into a Gigerific Stage Play

Generally speaking, creating unlicensed adaptations of film properties is frowned upon in local theater scenes. But sometimes, you get away with it by creating something super rad, which is what happened in the case of Alien: The Play, a full-length adaptation of Ridley Scott’s Alien helmed by Perfecto Cuervo, an English teacher at North Bergen High School in New Jersey USA alongside his student players.
