The Sandman Audiobook Is Better Than It Has Any Right To Be, Even With A Disappointing Act II

How do you adapt a graphic novel series like Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman"? It's a question that has eluded Hollywood producers and filmmakers for decades — to the point of many declaring the acclaimed comic books to be unadaptable. And for many years, that was true. Until suddenly two years ago, a pair of adaptations of "The Sandman" finally sprung into being: a live-action Netflix series that was finally getting off the ground after years of gestating. And ... an audiobook?The audiobook, when it...

And McAvoy performed the part of Morpheus in the first part of "The Sandman," released in July 2020, while in lockdown in his spare...

Mondo Reveals The Queen's Gambit Vinyl Soundtrack, No Green Pills Required [Exclusive]

Last night, "The Queen's Gambit" walked away with an Emmy for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards. Director Scott Frank also won himself an award, and he made headlines for squaring off with the Emmys orchestra who tried to play him off during his speech a few times. In a case of perfect timing with those big Emmy wins, Mondo is giving the "Queen's Gambit" score from composer Carlos Rafael Rivera an exclusive vinyl release, and we're proud to debut it right ...

LG Introduces 325-Inch Television That Costs $1.7 Million, Guillotine Not Included

Back in the early 1990s, my dad won a newspaper sweepstakes and our family became the first on the block to own a front projection big screen TV. The thing weighed more than any human being in our family and there's a high probability I learned every curse word in the book listening to my dad and his buddies transport it downstairs. The front panel pulled out exposing a mirror for the three-color-projectors to combine and generate the image, it was absolutely unwatchable in daylight, and if the ...

The whole set-up for the movie is essentially a board game itself.One group of hoodlums has to traverse the boroughs of New York and each area has a unique hostile gang wanting to kill them.

Disneyland Ride Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin Is Getting An Overhaul

The last few years for the Disney theme parks have been full of change, which is to be expected and embraced. Some of those changes have focused on updating current attractions to become more culturally relevant. In some cases, as with Pirates of the Caribbean, it means revising show scenes to eliminate unpleasant stereotypes. In others, as with the forthcoming update to Splash Mountain, it means updating a ride from stem to stern. Now, another ride is getting an update, in the former style: Rog...
