When the Avengers aren’t busy saving the world from dangerous aliens, their calendar is packed with plenty of things to do to keep equally dangerous humans in check. And even so, they do find the time to fight among themselves, if that’s required. In other words, get ready for a massive brawl between Captain America and Iron Man in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie.
This past May, we were among the first to tell the world about a pirate TV service called cCloud TV. The service made a name for itself by collecting live streams from a wide range of free and pay TV channels including HBO, ESPN, Showtime, AMC and more into a single interface. What’s more, the service was compatible with devices on all major platforms including Windows, Android, iOS and Mac. Needless to say, it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride since then as copyright holders continue to apply pressure to the service.
Now, after what the cCloudTV team says has been “months of spending hours and hours to make the future of IPTV,” cCloud TV is back with hundreds of new channels and a host of new features. More →
Decorating a New York subway car with symbols from the second World War might be one of the best ways to promote The Man in the High Castle, a new Amazon TV show based on a book with the same title that imagines what the U.S. would be like had the Axis (Germany and Japan) won. But while Amazon’s marketing scheme might be brilliant, it’s also rather questionable, especially given the current events in the world, some backed by extreme political and religious views.
Every year, it seems like someone proposes abolishing the penny and every year pretty much nothing happens about it. While ranting about the uselessness of pennies has gotten tiresome at this point, HBO’s John Oliver refreshes this common complaint with what might be the funniest anti-penny tirade I’ve ever seen. Sadly, however, I still don’t think it’s going to do any good. More →

Late last week, Marvel took a sledgehammer to our preconceived notions about how far it would push the boundaries of the television medium. Jessica Jones is dark, brutal, tragic and unburdened by inhibitions. It asks questions that you don’t want answers to and it revels in sex and violence in a way that no Marvel show or movie has before.
Jessica Jones is a departure. A welcome departure.
(Fair warning: minor spoilers to follow.)
In less than a month, theaters around the country will be packed with Star Wars fans, anxious to see how The Force Awakens panned out. Will it live up to the seemingly impossible expectations set by the original trilogy? Will it crash and burn like the prequels before it?
We’ll know soon enough, but in the meantime, J.J. Abrams sat down with Stephen Colbert on Saturday in Newark, New Jersey for the Montclair Film Festival’s Celebrity Nerd-Off fundraiser to discuss the film. More →
Think Jon Snow is really dead? You know nothing, as a certain Game of Thrones character would say. Snow, the beloved hero of George R.R. Martin’s story who was seemingly murdered by his fellow members of the Night’s Watch at the end of last season, is the star of a new teaser image that HBO has posted to promote the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones.
The seventh episode of The Walking Dead season 6 aired last night, and it had an interesting overall theme: people need saving. Unexpectedly, the episode brought the answer we’ve all been waiting for: is Glenn dead? That’s the question we’ve pondered since the season’s third episode – the series’ “Jon Snow” moment – and we’re about to spoil it for you if you haven’t already seen the episode. Unless you’ve completely stayed away from Facebook, Twitter and just about every other site on the web though, it’s probably already been spoiled.
Here’s your final warning: Spoilers follow below. More →
