Joss Whedon Says Justice League's Cyborg Storyline 'Made No Sense,' Calls Ray Fisher 'A Bad Actor'

It's hard to believe that the Snyderverse controversy first began almost five years ago. Zack Snyder departed the set of his "Justice League" film in 2017, but it wasn't until 2020 that allegations from the cast would derail the career of Joss Whedon, who'd been tapped to reshape the film in his own image. Whedon's fall from grace seemed intrinsically linked to comments from Ray Fisher, who was one of the first to address the director's "gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptabl...

Beanie Bubble: Film About Beanie Craze Starring Zach Galifianakis And Elizabeth Banks Heads To Apple

If you lived through the 1990s in the United States, chances are you remember the Beanie Baby craze. While my younger brother and I only ever had these beanbag stuffed toys for playing with, not collecting, there were some prized items that sold for thousands of dollars. As soon as the craze popped up, it died out, leaving many with more stuffed toys than they would ever know what to do with. It was recently explored in the HBO Max documentary "Beanie Mania," and now there's going to be an Apple...

Animated Box Office Bombs That Deserve A Second Chance

Whether you were first enthralled by them in the theater or on VHS, DVD, Blu-ray, or streaming services, animated films are a cornerstone of film-based nostalgia. To be labeled a box office bomb is not pleasant, but how many dollars an animated film rakes in at the box office does not directly correlate with its quality or the reputation that it earns after its theatrical debut.Some films may have been greeted with mixed reviews, only to find their audiences years later. Some may have been criti...

The 15 Best Law And Order: SVU Characters Ranked

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," colloquially known as "Law & Order: SVU" or simply "SVU," is creator Dick Wolf's best entry in the franchise.

Sunset Boulevard Ending Explained: Hollywood Is Always Hungry For The Next Big Thing

Hollywood doesn't treat its own very well. In Billy Wilder's 1950 classic "Sunset Boulevard," Hollywood is a bleak, shadowy monster with the appetite of a hyena and the memory of a goldfish. Purportedly a city of glamour and dreams, it is in fact the world's most horrid meat factory, designed to grind every ounce of talent out of hard-working artists and ambitious young writers, and then show little gratitude when said artists work themselves to death. It is eternally a town of "What have you do...
