The 15 DC Animated Movies You Need To Watch

Whereas Marvel has triumphed magnificently over DC in terms of live-action movies, the California-based comics giant has always prevailed when it comes to animated output. With the success of the Spider-verse and "What If...?" projects the tide may well be turning, but ever since the "Batman: The Animated Series" feature-length spin-off "Mask of the Phantasm" was released in 1993, there has been a regular stream of good, quality material emerging from the DC stable.It'd be churlish to deny there...

The 13 Best Animated Star Wars Moments

Genndy Tartakovsky's hand-drawn "Star Wars: Clone Wars" series, which aired from 2003 to 2005, did not mark Star Wars' first foray into animation. Such can be traced back to 1985, shortly after "Return of the Jedi." But the micro-series heralded the arrival of a new era for animated storytelling that seriously expanded the canon of the galaxy far, far away. While Tartakovsky's contributions are archived as proto-canon, slotted in the same "Star Wars Vintage" section of Disney+ as 1985's "Ewoks" ...

Interview: Guardians of the Galaxy Devs Speak About Going From Stealth to Marvel-Level Action

Eidos Montreal might not be the first developer many people would put on a Guardians of the Galaxy game. The Canadian studio is mostly known for two Deus Ex games, which faithfully continued the stealth and immersive sim roots of the original. Guardians of the Galaxy is the tonal opposite of Adam Jensen’s adventures and adjusting to that new universe took some time, according to Senior Creative Director Jean-François Dugas and Senior Gameplay Director Patrick Fortier. Senior Gaming Editor Michae...

Injustice Red Band Trailer: Superman Goes Dark In Blood-Drenched New Look

Zack Snyder's deeply held fever dream of an uber-fascist Superman murdering people by the score and obliterating folks with his scary laser eyes was heavily inspired by the 2013 video game "Injustice: Gods Among Us" and its comic book spin-offs.

The Spoiler-Filled Story Behind Malignant's Craziest Moments [Interview]

"Malignant" is the craziest mainstream release in a long time. Years, maybe. It's the kind of bonkers filmmaking usually reserved for niche genre film festival entries and long-forgotten trash masterpieces from the '80s. To see it playing in theaters, and at the top of the HBO Max streaming service, is a perverse delight. Director James Wan, on a break between directing "Aquaman" and its sequel, decided to make the kind of blank check horror movie others can only fantasize about. We probably won...

The 15 Best Superman Comics You Need To Read

Like the utopian Federation of "Star Trek," Superman is an aspirational character. He's a fantasy that began in 1938, when two second-generation Jewish immigrants, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted Superman in the pages of "Action Comics" #1. Audiences quickly latched on to the hero, who despite all of his fantastic powers was still kind, understanding, and heroic. Sure, the myth of Superman is a dream -- but fiction should sometimes dream a little.Despite starring in numerous movies and TV ...

USC legend Sam Cunningham and his unintentional legacy

Before practice Tuesday, the USC running backs room took a break from preparations for Saturday’s Pac-12 opener against Stanford for a brief history lesson. Former USC All-American fullback Sam “Bam” Cunningham had died earlier in the day at the age of 71. And after learning more about his impact on the history of the game from receivers coach Keary Colbert and director of player development Gavin Morris, running backs coach Mike Jinks wanted to impart that on his position group. “Just kind of t...

Fantasy Box Office Bombs That Deserve A Second Chance

Fantasy films aren't released every day. The genre is not in as dire straits as, say, westerns or musicals, but fantasy is certainly a bit of an endangered species -- or, at the very least, a genre in decline.Fantasy relies on extensive world-building and frequently dabbles in magic, curses, and alternative histories. Dragons, fantastical creatures, and visual spectacle are mainstays of the genre; technology is usually set aside. Perhaps for these reasons, fantasy films tend either tend to be bl...
