Goodbye, Sayaka

Actress and singer Sayaka Kanda was found dead on Dec. 18 at the hotel she was staying at in Sapporo. The circumstances as far as I am aware of come down to these two articles. Since it is an ongoing investigation, I’ll refrain from inferring from the fairly well-known set of circumstances surrounding her. It’s kind of on brand that ANN just namedrops Sayaka’s parents without any footnote–Seiko Matsuda is one of the most popular Japanese idol ever, and Sayaka’s relationship with her star-lit par...

All The Moments Where The Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailers Misled Us

Movie trailers can be misleading, and that's always not a bad thing. After all, what would be the fun of watching a movie for the first time if everything is handed to us in the previews? There would be no surprises, nothing to look forward to. In the case of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" and the trailers that preceded its release, a little deception was essential in order to hide the movie's biggest reveals. Some things weren't quite what we thought they'd be, and that's okay! Let's take a look at ...

How Fire Magic In The Witcher Season 2 Really Works

Magic in "The Witcher" is complicated. Most magic is drawn from Chaos, a kind of power that resides in the elements, which mages learn to control within themselves. Though many kinds of magic are taught throughout the Continent, fire magic is considered one of the forbidden magics, along with necromancy and daemonology -- though those who speak of it in hushed whispers don't exactly explain why. While the first season of Netflix's hit fantasy series showed the horrifying power of fire magic in i...

Here's Why There Are No Female Witchers

Many fans of Netflix's "The Witcher" TV series have noticed a distinct lack of women Witchers. If you're one of them, perhaps you've wondered whether this is an intentional exclusion, a coincidence, or something more complex? Maybe you find yourself scouring Google in an effort to see if there's really any good reason why men and women don't appear to stand equal chances of becoming magical superhuman monster-slaying badasses. There is actually a canon reason for Kaer Morhen's distinct lack of f...

Tales From The Box Office: Rogue One Turned Two Lines Of Star Wars Text Into A Billion-Dollar Hit

One of the biggest moments in modern Hollywood history occurred in 2012, when it was revealed that Disney was purchasing Lucasfilm from founder George Lucas for more than $4 billion. Not only did it mean Disney was making another splashy acquisition, and that Lucas was cashing out in a big way. It meant, above all else, that we were getting new "Star Wars" movies. The new trilogy kicked off with director J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in 2015, which remains one of the biggest movies...

Robert Pattinson's Bruce Wayne Broods In New Images From The Batman

Batman movies have been embracing the gritty/dark/edgy aesthetic for so long that, at a glance, Matt Reeves' upcoming movie "The Batman" might just look like more of the same. Everything we've seen of Robert Pattinson's Bruce Wayne so far looks gloriously emo -- from the strands of his hair to his smear of black eye make-up. But according to Reeves, his primary inspiration wasn't emo music, but grunge.The upcoming February 2022 issue of Empire will feature "The Batman" front and center, and the ...

It's the season of nostalgic revivals, and "Sex and the City" has joined the ranks with "And Just Like That..." which sees the Manhattan ladies tackling life in their 50s. The news around it seemed mostly vague, except to say that it was clearly opting for a more socially conscious mentality than its predecessor.
