Peacemaker Is An Unconventional Love Story Between Two Characters

Believe it or not, writer and director James Gunn is kind of a sucker for love stories. Sure, his love stories involve alien tentacle monsters and murder, and they're not always romantic, but they're love stories nonetheless. Whether it's the twisted love triangle of "Slither," the loss of love driving a man to murder in "Super," or the parent-child bonds of "The Suicide Squad," Gunn is a twisted genius when it comes to understanding what tugs at our heartstrings. In the new series "Peacemaker,"...

Peacemaker Enters 'A Whole New Whirled' With Violence, Vulgarity And Heart

Writer and director James Gunn has an eclectic style of filmmaking that combines gross-out humor, vulgarity, and intense violence with heartfelt messages and deeper thematic meanings. His work is a mix of sweet and sardonic, earnest and extreme. After the R-rated romp of "The Suicide Squad," Gunn decided to take the character of Peacemaker (John Cena) a step further. The filmmaker wrote the series shortly after wrapping production on "The Suicide Squad," and it follows Peacemaker several months ...

Easter Eggs And References In Muppets Haunted Mansion You May Have Missed

Creepy and goofy are not mutually exclusive experiences. The mood of Disney's iconic Haunted Mansion ride is the result of a disagreement between two Imagineers, Marc Davis and Claude Coats, in the '60s. Coats wanted to make something genuinely scary. Davis wanted the attraction to be more fun. In the end, the Haunted Mansion is both; the mansion is brimming with silly gags, but still runs chills up guests' spines using a flurry of technological and illusory wonders.In 1969, three years after Wa...

Ephesus: Astounding Ancient Greek and Roman Ruins

Me at Ephesus in front of the 1,900-year old Library of Celsus from Ancient Rome. Some of the best ancient Greek and Roman ruins aren’t in Greece or Rome at all. The Greco-Roman empire stretched across Europe, over western Asia, and into northern Africa, so I shouldn’t have been so surprised to arrive in western Turkey and learn that one of the region’s top tourist attractions is Ephesus: the site of a vast city dating back over 2,000 years. The Great Theater of Ephesus could hold 25,000 spect...
