Steven Spielberg explains why Superhero movies are a passing fad

Steven Spielberg, acclaimed by many as the greatest director of our time, apparently isn’t as big a fan of superhero movies as most. In a recent interview relayed by Entertainment Weekly, the man responsible for iconic hits like Jaws and Jurassic Park effectively said that current age of the superhero movie is nothing more than a passing fad destined to go away of the Western. Which is to say, it’s a niche genre without much staying power.

You only have 4 more days to save $5 on Amazon’s Fire TV Stick

Amazon’s “Fire” brand can be a bit tricky. You should never, ever buy a smartphone with “Fire” in the name, and Fire-branded tablets aren’t what they used to be. Where streaming media is concerned though, “Fire” is definitely a safe bet. In fact, Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is one of the best and most affordable media streamers out there, and you’re running out of time if you want to pick one up at a discount. More →

Tidal just tried to troll Apple in the worst way possible

Rapper Lil Wayne this weekend took the wraps off of Lil WeezyAna Fest, a star-studded music festival in New Orleans designed to raise money for kids affected by Hurricane Katrina. It’s a noble cause, to be sure, and it attracted a who’s who of performers from the rap game, including Drake, Master P, and even a Hot Boys reunion.

So far so good, right?

Well as it turns out, Tidal, the music streaming service backed by Jay-Z, was live streaming the event for fans who couldn’t be there in person. Only thing is, by the time Drake took the stage to perform, the live stream went dead with an ominous message indicating that Apple, aka “Big Brother”, was preventing Tidal from showcasing Drake’s performance to fans across the globe. Drake, of course, has a lucrative endorsement deal with Tidal competitor Apple Music, even appearing on stage during the service’s introduction at WWDC this past June.
