John Oliver How Is This Not A Thing

Watch: John Oliver needs these things to be invented immediately

By about 1 hour ago.

In his regular HBO show that features “the fewest games and the least impressive thrones,” John Oliver has a segment in which he tries to understand why some things still exist, like daylight savings time or the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. But he’s now looking to figure out why some things that we desperately need haven’t been invented yet.

Last Week Tonight is on vacation for Memorial Day, so Oliver recorded a YouTube exclusive video to tell us some of the things he’d like to see invented to make our lives easier. More →

Game of Thrones is falling apart

Game of Thrones is falling apart

By about 2 hours ago.

May 29th, 2016. Remember that date.

I can’t pinpoint exactly when it happened, but I remember how sad I was when I finally came to terms with the fact that The Sopranos had gone from being one of the best television series the world had ever seen to being a disappointment. It might not have been until the show’s final season, but the writers simply ran out of steam and the actors followed closely behind. Some would say that they pulled things together for the finale, which was certainly one of the most polarizing conclusions a popular show has ever seen. But no one would argue that The Sopranos wrapped up on a level that was nowhere close to where it began.

With that in mind, let’s have a quick chat about Game of Thrones. More →

‘Game of Thrones’ episode 6 recap: a tangled web of plots and subplots

We’re not done mourning Hodor yet, but the Game of Thrones universe doesn’t just simply stop. Each character has new adventures to deal with, adding to the plethora of plots and subplots the viewer has to keep track of to make sense of everything in the Seven Kingdoms.

HBO just aired episode 6 of its most popular TV show and we’re going to dive into it right here. But stop reading right now if you haven’t seen it yet, as major spoilers will follow. More →

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 7 Trailer

Here’s the exciting trailer for next week’s ‘Game of Thrones’

By about 5 hours ago.

Here’s the exciting trailer for next week’s ‘Game of Thrones’

Hodor is gone, but we hardly have any time to mourn losses on Game of Thrones. The show is moving at a very fast pace, as there are plenty of converging subplots to follow — that’s why not all our favorite characters get screen time in every episode. There’s simply no room to expand on all the story lines in just under 60 minutes, but the closer we get to the end of the sixth season, the more action we’re bound to see.

Without spoiling last night’s episode for you, we can tell you that war is looming in the Seven Kingdoms. At least that’s what the fresh trailer of episode seven, due to air on June 5th, suggests. But spoilers are coming below, so avoid the new trailer if you haven’t seen episode six yet. More →

Watch Tony Hawk and Jaws skateboard in zero-gravity

Last time we checked out one of Tony Hawk’s crazy skateboard tricks, he was skating the world’s first horizontal loop. Last time we watched a spectacular zero-gravity video, we were enjoying a new OK Go out-of-the-box music video. But what happens when you combine Hawk’s mad skating skills with zero G, and record everything on video?

Best Netflix Movies 2016

10 Netflix movies you have to watch this weekend before they disappear

10 Netflix movies you have to watch this weekend before they disappear

By on May 27, 2016 at 1:21 PM.

Netflix can be so cruel. The company’s streaming video service completely changed the way we watch movies and TV shows, and we’ve now grown accustomed to being able to open the app on any laptop, smartphone, tablet or TV and stream whatever we want. Of course, Netflix strikes licensing deals with content owners for the rights to stream their movies and TV shows, and those deals are never open-ended. Current content disappears almost as quickly as new content is added each month, and in June it’s worse than normal since Netflix is losing hundreds of movies from Miramax as the pair’s 5-year, $100 million deal is set to expire.

You can’t watch 600 movies between now and June 1st, which is when all those Miramax titles are set to vanish along with some more content from other studios. Don’t worry though, because we’re here to help. More →

X-Men: Apocalypse Review Roundup

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ review roundup: Critics hate it, so it’s probably amazing

By on May 27, 2016 at 12:56 PM.

If Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice taught us anything, it’s that there is a massive disconnect between film critics and fans when it comes to superhero movies and similar fantasy genres. In fact, critics might just be useless. The movie was panned by nearly every critic who reviewed it, and it went on to pull in more than $870 million at the box office. What’s more, there’s 40% discrepancy between the film’s critical rating and its fan rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Fast forward to today, and there’s a new big-budget fantasy movie hitting theaters that has also been completely torn apart by critics. Did they get it right this time around or is X-Men: Apocalypse destined to break records just like Batman v Superman did? More →

10 awesome Marvel movie easter eggs you missed the first time around

One of the best things about the expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe is that the writers and directors are free to make clever references to comics, TV shows and other movies. Some are painfully obvious, but others require a highly trained eye for detail to pick out, occasionally requiring viewers to pause and take a closer look.

Here are the worst video game movies of all time

Here are the worst video game movies of all time

Independently, playing video games and watching movies are immensely enjoyable activities. But when the two mix, the result is often an exercise in disappointment. Likely rooted in Hollywood’s never-ending effort to print money without exercising an ounce of creativity, movie executives always seem keen on taking whatever video game happens to be hot at the moment and turning it into a movie. Even in the face of ridicule and a string of box office failures, we’ll likely never see Hollywood stop trying to turn popular video games into hit films.

Ghost Recon Wildlands New Trailer

‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ trailer shows off the game’s massive open world

‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ trailer shows off the game’s massive open world

Much like the characters featured in the game itself, Ghost Recon Wildlands has been surprisingly hard to find over the past several months. After being unveiled at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference last year, Wildlands immediately went into hiding, with nary a screenshot or a trailer to be found.

In fact, I’d nearly forgotten the game even existed. Until today. More →
