Batgirl Star Leslie Grace Reveals First Look At Her Costume

Despite being introduced into the "Batman" comic book series all the way back in 1967 (technically 1961, but I'm talking Barbara Gordon here), Batgirl is finally making her way into the live-action DC Extended Universe, with Leslie Grace set to play the iconic character in an exclusive film for HBO Max. Not to be confused with Batwoman, the Batgirl character has appeared in multiple animated series and "The Lego Batman Movie," but this is our first bonafide chance to see a live-action Batgirl si...

The 90s Cult Classic Brendan Fraser Missed Out On, But Would Have Been Perfect For

Brendan Fraser is a cherished actor whose resume consists of iconic films from the '90s and early 2000's. After his heartbreaking retreat from the spotlight, he's now on the verge of a cinematic comeback — and we're all cheering him on. Many of us know Fraser from eccentric comedies like "Blast From the Past", "Encino Man", "Airheads" (my personal favorite, seen above), "The Mummy" franchise, and "Bedazzled". He's mostly known for playing characters that are fish-out-of-water types immersed into...

14 Shows Like Justified That Are Definitely Worth Watching

Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens represented a full-circle union for Elmore Leonard. Here was a hero that could've sauntered straight out of the Wild West pulp he wrote as a young man and into the paperback crime that later granted him immortality. In his debut appearance, the 1993 novel "Pronto," Givens cut a willfully anachronistic figure. Nobody took him seriously. Not the two-bit kidnappers or the retirement-minded bookies or even the women. Not at first, anyway. He was a kook with a six-sh...

15 Movies Like Dead Poets Society You Definitely Need To See

"Carpe diem," Robin Williams whispers as the kindly English professor John Keating, giving voice to the generations of men who came before his students. "Seize the day. Make your lives extraordinary."It is this sense of inspiration that defines "Dead Poets Society." In it, Williams plays an unconventional teacher who attempts to break his well-heeled prep school students out of their slavish devotion to the prosaic, utterly unremarkable lives that otherwise await them. In response, a group of bo...

Everything We Know About Batgirl So Far

It's hard to believe in light of the character's immense popularity over the years, but Batgirl has yet to make the leap from her comic book origins, small screen iterations, and even video game appearances to DC Universe feature films just yet ... in terms of live action, that is. At the very least, "The Lego Batman Movie" managed to do the character some modicum of justice! But all that's finally set to change with the upcoming "Batgirl," which will put Barbara Gordon in the spotlight she dese...

14 Remakes That Are Better Than The Original

In this day and age, it's amazingly easy to be a cynic. It could be argued that remakes are lazy cash-ins, that they're a sign of the lack of original ideas left in cinema, or that they exist only to appease that sizable portion of the cinema-going audience that needs to see films in their native tongue, without subtitles. That's true in a great many cases (I'm looking at you, "Jacob's Ladder," "Quarantine," and "The Fog"), and yet there are times when a remake is a golden opportunity to do some...
