Netflix's Dark series is giving off a German Stranger Things-vibe

I'm not going to lie, I am going through STRANGER THINGS withdrawals, so any show that can satiate my desire for twisty plots, dark secrets, kids getting into supernatural trouble, and moody atmosphere, has got my vote. I also enjoy a lot of foreign imports, so I'm definitely willing to give Netflix's new German sci-fi drama series DARK a chance. Here's the...

A mystery is afoot in the trailer for the action/comedy Game Night

I love game nights! Sitting around, playing old-school board games, card games, role-playing games, what-have-you. While my go-to is Dungeons and Dragons (halfling rogue for the perks), I've always been interested in doing a full-on murder mystery thing with my friends. But we can barely organize a D&D session that involves just notebooks and some dice, let alone something so...

New, darkly hilarious Death of Stalin trailer unravels in front of our eyes

THE DEATH OF STALIN is a " period comedy-drama film directed by Armando Iannucci which chronicles the Soviet power struggles occasioned by the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953 " , which looks amazing. Iannucci is the director of IN THE LOOP, a darkly hilarious look at Bush-era political discourse. This looks to be in the same vein, only dealing with Russia in the '50s...

A fifth Game of Thrones prequel in the works at HBO

So Winter if finally here, and GAME OF THRONES is unfortunately coming to an end. While the series has had its ups-and-downs (though I personally loved the more blockbuster-y seventh season), it's still wildly popular. So it makes sense that HBO wants to milk that dragon's teet (do dragon's have teets?) until they run dry. So that means... spin-offs ! Or more accurately,...

Seth Rogen working on adaptation of graphic novel The Boys for Amazon

So I just did a piece on IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE's Wong Kar-Wai doing a period crime series for Amazon, and in the same article it said that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are directing an adaptation of Garth Ennis' dark anti-superhero graphic novel THE BOYS. I felt that focusing on one over the other would be burying the lead, so here we are. Either way, this is all super...

Netflix unveils first photos from season 4 of Black Mirror

I'd argue that BLACK MIRROR is probably the closest we've come to a TWILIGHT ZONE for our current generation (though I'm aware I'm not the first one to make that comparison). It has the same use of sci-fi conceits to talk about human nature on an elemental level, as well as act as a potent form of social commentary. Just with, you know, more pig fucking. Anyway,...

AI tasked with writing final Song of Ice & Fire novel Winds of Winter

It's an old joke at this point to talk about how long it's taking George R.R. Martin to write the next book in his SONG OF ICE & FIRE series (of which the wildly successful HBO show GAME OF THRONES is based on). Some also joke - I'd argue mean-spiritedly - that his health will cause him to keel over before he can finish the series proper. How true that is remains to be...

Game of Thrones deleted scene would've helped clarify controversial subplot

I've said before how I've enjoyed this past season of GAME OF THRONES, possibly much more than most fans. Yes, it was fan-fiction-y. Yes, it was dumber than past seasons. Yes, people seemed to be able to teleport all over Westeros. But it had dragons fucking white walkers up, huge battles, and awesome pair ups (really, anytime The Hound met up with somebody to call them a "cunt"). So it...

Game of Thrones featurette talks about making the last episode of season 7

I imagine people are tired of writers exclaiming "Holy shit GAME OF THRONES!!!" after every episode. And, to be fair, while I did yell that out while watching the finale, nothing truly surprised me. I knew The Wall coming down was going to be the season closer, I knew Arya and Sansa were too smart to fall for Littlefinger's bullshit, and I was pretty certain that Cersei...

George R.R. Martin apparently doesn't watch Game of Thrones anymore

This season of GAME OF THRONES has been so exciting! Finally, Jon meeting Dany! Dragons fucking up White Walkers! A goddamn zombie-ice-dragon! Holy shit! Everyone should be watching this! However, there's one person in particular who's specifically avoiding this show, and it's the author of the original novels the show's based on, George R.R. Martin . According to an interview...

Director of last week's Game of Thrones episode admits timeline is "hazy"

Now, I know there are people who complain that GAME OF THRONES has become fan-fiction - overly action-oriented fan service that dumbs down the characters and plots. And I fully agree! However, as a fan, I also fucking love it! I mean, if it means SPOILERS zombie-ice-dragon? Then sign me up! Though, unlike me, many fans are concerned about geography and timelines, and director of...

Archie has a gun! Riverdale unleashes dark and stylish season 2 teaser

Holy shit RIVERDALE! Now, don't get me wrong, this show has never shied away from the darkness. It dealt with murder, drugs, and incest (yes, really). So the fact that it's dark isn't surprising...just, like, was that Archie with a fucking gun? Where is this season headed? No matter what though, I'm excited. While pulpy, melodramatic, and oftentimes goofy, I loved the hell out...
