Will There Ever Be A Jack Frost 2? Here's What We Know

Six years after Michael Keaton stepped down as the caped crusader and transitioned into a successful career as a dramatic lead in films like "Much Ado About Nothing," "Multiplicity," and "Jackie Brown," Keaton also starred in the heartwarming Christmas film, "Jack Frost." In this wildly depressing family fantasy film, Keaton plays a would-be rockstar named, you guessed it, Jack Frost, who tragically dies in a car accident on the drive home to spend Christmas with his family. Luckily, he's also t...

Everything We Know About Disenchanted So Far

Life was different in the mid-2000s. Amy Adams was only starting to make a name for herself thanks to her Oscar-nominated turn in 2005's "Junebug," and outside of "Shrek" and its sequel, films rarely dared to make fun of Disney's animated princess fairy tale movies. Then came 2007's "Enchanted," a hybrid of live-action and animation featuring a star-making performance from Adams as Giselle, a comically wide-eyed young woman who gets pulled from the fantastical, animated realm of Andalasia into r...

X-men #126 - John Byrne art

X-men #126 X-Men v1 #126, 1979 - Mutant X escapes his specialized cell, leaving a wake of mummified bodies for the X-men to follow. Once cornered, the mutant bends reality to his will, allowing John Byrne to draw several creatively nightmarish scenes.

Doctor Who: Flux Trips Up And Gets Trippy For Once, Upon A Time

For a show about time travel, I've sometimes thought that "Doctor Who" didn't get weird enough. Not weird in the way of kitchen-sink sci-fi that the show has become famous for — where else would you get a show where cat nuns experiment on diseased clones? — but weird in the way of playing with format and form. "Doctor Who" has done this a handful of times before, primarily in episodes written by the divisive former showrunner Steven Moffat, but for the most part it's settled in its place as a fa...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Was Written Before Jason Reitman Even Pitched It To The Studio

Affordable housing axed from $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill

Every Single Dad In America Watched The Yellowstone Season 4 Premiere

I am not a dad, so I was unfortunately not a part of the metric crapload of people that tuned in for the season 4 premiere of "Yellowstone." In fact, I'll put all of my cards right on the table and admit that, as someone who hasn't had cable in over a decade, and doesn't frequent the "Kevin Costner is a God" side of Film Twitter which may or may not exist, I didn't even know "Yellowstone" was a thing until everyone started freaking out about the massive viewership numbers.

The 12 Best Cowboy Bebop Episodes

The first anime ever broadcast on Adult Swim, "Cowboy Bebop" is widely revered as the gateway anime for western viewers. Anime has always been a dynamic art form, but it was the eccentric "Cowboy Bebop" -- a perfect blend of space opera, neo-noir, western, and slapstick -- that threw open the door for anime to be highly regarded in the west, all of it propelled along by the show's critically acclaimed, bar-setting English dub. Set in the year 2071, the show follows a rag-tag team of bounty hunte...

The Best Characters In Eternals Ranked

The primary tenet of Blake Snyder's "Save the Cat," a book about writing successful movies, is "give me the same thing ... only different." Stan Lee, co-creator of many of Marvel's most popular characters, also believed this implicitly. He claimed that the secret to Marvel's success was its "illusion of change," the feeling that events were altering a comic book character irrevocably, but actually weren't. Now, Marvel makes the most successful and impactful Hollywood blockbusters, and "the same ...
