Is competitive gaming a legitimate sport?

By: Eddie Makuch It’s clear that competitive gaming is on the rise, but will eSports ever be seen by the mainstream sports community as a legitimate sport?

Best Worst Movie Director Will Helm Bob Odenkirk’s High-Concept Drama Girlfriend’s Day

By: Nick Venable HBO’s Mr. Show With Bob And David was so amazing, it makes Bob Odenkirk’s few career missteps completely forgettable, and after years of behind-the-scenes work, his recurring role as Saul Goodman on AMC’s Breaking Bad is the series’ most oft-utilized respite from tension, and we’re hoping that spinoff comes through. But before all that, Odenkirk is coming back to the big screen in Girlfriend’s Day, which will be produced … Continue reading Best Worst Movie Director Will Helm Bob Odenkirk’s High-Concept Drama Girlfriend’s Day

Michael C. Hall Joins Revenge Thriller Cold In July

By: Nick Venable Though it still doesn’t have a release date yet, Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are has gotten enough festival buzz to make the film seem like it could be a successful remake – Jorge Michel Grau wrote and directed the 2010 Mexican original – while also rising above Mickle’s other previous lackluster genre efforts. Positivity breeds optimism, which is needed to really get … Continue reading Michael C. Hall Joins Revenge Thriller Cold In July

Spawn Reboot Still In The Works With Animated Series Planned To Follow

By:  Nick Venable If you remember director Mark A.Z. Dippé’s 1997 looser-than-a-goose adaptation of Todd McFarlane’s highly popular Spawn comic series, chances are it’s because of how utterly disappointing it was. Though Michael Jai White’s performance was notable enough, when you’re playing opposite Fat John Leguizamo Clown, it isn’t hard to look amazing in comparison. McFarlane has been talking about bringing Spawn’s hellacious universe back to cinema for … Continue reading Spawn Reboot Still In The Works With Animated Series Planned To Follow

Could Game Of Thrones’ Jason Momoa Be Joining The Guardians Of The Galaxy?

By:   Eric Eisenberg Chris Pratt is set to play Star-Lord in James Gunn’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, but there’s still plenty of work left to be done in the casting department before cameras start to roll.

Fraggle Rock Movie Gets Two Writers

By: Kelly West One of my earliest TV-related memories is being allowed to stay up a little bit past bedtime to watch the series premiere of Fraggle Rock on HBO. The hugeness of getting an extension on bedtime for the sake of a TV show is likely the reason why I can vividly remember sitting in front of the television to watch a new type … Continue reading Fraggle Rock Movie Gets Two Writers
