Andrew Garfield Was Sold On No Way Home Because Of One Key Moment

The presence of several Spider-Men in "Spider-Man: No Way Home" was one of the coolest things about the film. It was handled beautifully, and considering the audience response, you thought so as well. It was wonderful to not only see Tom Holland reprise his role in the MCU but to revisit Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's versions of our friendly, neighborhood superhero was a treat. Garfield recently did an interview with Variety where he was asked about other actors returning and what he would...

Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "Happy Putsch-aversary"

From DC's anarchist cartoonist, Mike Flugennock - "Happy Putsch-aversary" http://sinkers.org/stage/?p=3369 It may have been a putsch from a Mel Brooks movie, but it was still a  goddamn putsch. And what is our so-called "opposition party" doing  about it? From the looks of things — much like reproductive rights —  the Democrats have absolutely no plans to actually DO ANYTHING about  it other than dragging their "investigation" out as long as they can  so they can use it to f...

Every Downton Abbey Season Ranked Worst To Best

It was surprising when "Downton Abbey" debuted in 2010 and wasn't a scathing sociological critique of the last gasps of the English caste system. As it turns out, creator Julianne Fellowes and ITV-watching Brits didn't need another reminder that keeping the working class living in the basements of the landed elite wasn't the fairest system ever devised. Something else was afoot.See, "Downton Abbey" is the rare piece of prestige TV that doesn't preach. It grapples with topical issues, but is fore...

Star Wars TV Is Finally Giving Tusken Raiders The Spotlight, And It's About Time

As a near-lifelong "Star Wars" fan, I've found that enjoying the galaxy far, far away gets exponentially harder as years pass. My identity as a woman of color, as well as the constraints that come with it, staunchly influences my opinion on everything. So I've found that my appreciation for "Star Wars" — a decidedly-white franchise that has only recently begun seeking out minority voices — now hinges exclusively on how said voices are elevated (or -- let's be real -- ignored).Lucasfilm has a pre...
