It seems that the Department of Justice thinks it may be time to reexamine a Supreme Court ruling that ended studio ownership of theaters. In 1948 the DoJ brought a case against ‘block booking’ by studios. This was a practice that required a theater to show a certain number of B-films in order to get… read more


Today marks the third day in a row I have discussed some form of reboot of an older property. Can we just stop the insanity now? I’ve already discussed ALF and Fantasy Island this week, and now it’s… The Fact of Life. Yes, the nine season (I can’t believe it went that long) sitcom from the… read more


Nope. We’re good. Thanks! … Oh, you want me to say more? Ugh. I wrote about this as a professional today already over at The Nerdy. I don’t think anyone would argue that this revival/reboot thing is getting out of control. Yesterday it was Fantasy Island, which I will defend as having some great ideas,… read more


Fantasy Island is finally on its way back and I couldn’t be happier about it. I hold no delusions about Fantasy Island being some high-brow masterpiece, I just have very fond memories of the series. I recently had a chance to rewatch seasons 1, and the concept totally still works. It was even darker than… read more


The Last Man on Earth ended its fourth season on a cliffhanger, and then it was sadly canceled. What happened next? Series star Will Forte has luckily revealed the ending. When we last saw Tandy (Forte) and the crew, they seemed to be in a good place, and looking to establish a home in their… read more

Yet another sequel scored the top spot this weekend. Who needs originality?

Globally it sits at $153.5M off of a $178M budget. Second place went to Mamma… read more

Amazon has found its writing team for the Lord of the Rings prequel series, and that concerns me a bit. At the summer meeting of The Critics Association (TCA), Amazon announced that it has hired newcomers JD Payne and Patrick McKay to showrun and develop its upcoming Lord of the Rings series. Payne and McKay… read more

I treat most rumors as just that, rumors. But every once in a while something scratches at the back of my brain that tells me there is more going on than we know. This week rumors surfaced that the delays to The New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix were about the Disney acquisition of the… read more


With the news that the Star Wars Episode IX cast has been announced, there is one glaring surprise. JJ Abrams states in the announcement on StarWars.com, “We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us.” He went on to add, “We were never going to recast, or… read more

I blame Peter Jackson for this trend. One book does not mean two movies are necessary, but it seems to be Hollywood’s favorite thing to do. Brian Herbert – son of Dune creator Frank Herbert – gave a small update on the latest film adaptation of the sci-fi classic this week on Twitter. I have… read more

Deadwood ended in 2006, and it ended on a cliffhanger. But 12 years later is it worth risking the goodwill of the fans on a film? Ever since Deadwood ended after three seasons in 2006, talk immediately started discussing a movie to wrap things up, but it dragged on and on and on, and it… read more

As with each year, Comic-Con was filled with trailers. I’ve decided to take my time working my way through them this year to let that “WOOOOOO!” feeling wear off. With that being said… Aquaman didn’t get better with time. There is absolutely nothing original in this trailer. “Oh no, if you don’t accept the throne… read more
