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?
We’re already through five new Game of Thrones episodes, which brought us some amazing events including Jon Snow’s resurrection and Hodor’s death, to name just a few. But five episodes still remain in season 6, and we can’t wait to see the next one. HBO already released a trailer for episode 6, set to air Sunday night in the US, but now we have a series of fresh images from the set that offer us a sneak peek at the new episode titled Blood of My Blood.
The new photos might not tell us much about the upcoming plot twists, but if you want to avoid spoilers at all costs, you know the drill: Stay away from what follows below.
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 →
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 →
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.
You don’t have to watch Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope to relive the first episode in what turned out to be one of the most important film series in movie history. Instead, you can scroll down a single image that measures 403.5 feet long if you want to go through everything that happens in that first epic movie. More →
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.
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 →
HBO aired episode five of Game of Thrones’ sixth season a few days ago, which turned out to be one of the most significant episodes since the show premiered six years ago. The episode brought over a few explanations that were long overdue, including the mystery behind Hodor’s name.
Spoilers follow below, on the off chance that you’ve somehow survived almost an entire work week without seeing any Game of Thrones spoilers.
Some question Apple’s future in all sorts of “doom” scenarios, but the iPhone maker is hardly doomed. Its cash pile alone could help it move in any number of new directions, and a new report proves exactly that. Apparently, Apple considered buying Time Warner as it looked to make a major push into the media business. More →
Disney has been on a roll for the past 12 months, having released not one but two huge blockbusters including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Captain America: Civil War. As big as those two movies were, the company also has plenty of other highly anticipated titles in the making and it looks like there’s one trailer that people wanted to watch even more than The Force Awakens or Civil War.

After raking in over a billion dollars at the box office and receiving near-universal praise from critics, it’s hard to deny that Captain America: Civil War was a massive success for Marvel. Sadly, even with its enormous budget and its long running time, Civil War didn’t have room for all of our favorite heroes.
But don’t worry, Hulk fans — the Green Goliath can’t be held back for long.
The folks over at the Photoshopbattles subreddit have been having a field day today coming up with all sorts of creative shots based on the above photo of Harrison Ford — in his full Indiana Jones get-up — sitting inside of a refrigerator.
