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...

32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #21

Orson Welles in Suspense,Easter 2016, & ANTS! First things first for today: we’re back to the old-time radio show Suspense, with an episode starring Orson Welles from 1944.

Joss Whedon Wanted Zooey Deschanel To Play The Wasp In An Early Draft Of The Avengers

"The Story of Marvel Studios" is a book littered with behind-the-scenes details about the formation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's easy to take the whole shared-universe movie conceit for granted now that it's been done in the MCU, but back in the late 2000s and early 2010s, this was still a relatively new, novel idea. At that time, the concept of having five superhero films cross over into one big team-up remained untested on the big screen. However, that's exactly what "The Avengers" d...

10 Things You Didn't Know About Moon Knight

Can a tweet break the discourse? London's own Sunday Times tried its darnedest in early August, 2021. It postulated that the role of Tony Stark -- a.k.a. Iron Man -- could have been played by any actor in Jon Faverau's "Iron Man" and the picture would have still succeeded. Never mind that box-office mainstay Tom Cruise was attached to Iron Man before Robert Downey Jr., the question has now been raised: Could any actor have donned Shellhead's costume and made Marvel matter again?The answer is com...

However, some fans would end up being disappointed, because none of those characters ever ended up in the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though some of them would find a hom...

Ruby Rose Shares What Really Happened On The Set Of Batwoman: 'Enough Is Enough'

What a mess. Fans of the CW "Batwoman" series found out last year that the star of the show, Ruby Rose, would abruptly be stepping down from the role. At the time, both Rose and the "Batwoman" producers painted it as a mutual parting of ways, with no hard feelings on either side. Obviously, carefully formulated PR statements rarely tell the whole truth -- an update to the original report indicated that " wasn't 100-percent [Rose's] decision. It was a breakup. [They weren't] happy working on...

After 25 Years, Doug Liman’s Swingers Is Still Money

In the spring of 1997, my buddy and I were looking for a flick to watch on a Friday night and stumbled upon a movie called Swingers starring some guy named Vince Vaughn and Roller Girl from Boogie Nights. Obviously, it was the latter that caught our attention, but we were all in on the comedy the Los Angeles Times dubbed, “Hip and funny!” The movie changed our lives. No joke. For my friend and me, there was life before Swingers and life after Swingers. We learned a lot from that movie: How long ...

Netflix Is Changing Its Viewership Metrics (And It's Somehow Even Worse Than Before)

Netflix has always been shady about the way it reports viewership numbers, and unfortunately, it looks like that trend will continue. The streamer announced yesterday that it will soon be changing the way it reports those kinds of metrics, moving from its current system -- in which a "view" is counted as long as a subscriber watches two minutes of a piece of content -- to a system that is even less helpful for outsiders trying to get an accurate sense of a given project's popularity.Here is what...
