Russos say Steve Rogers is no longer Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Captain America: Civil War was a solid MCU entry--not as good as The Winter Soldier, but an entertaining beat-em-up that touched on the difficulties of foreign intervention in the Obama era. The film didn't have a hug-it-out ...   0

Opening of Brooklyn Alamo Drafthouse delayed indefinitely, there's something in my eye

Aww man, what a bummer. As you may recall, Brooklyn was set to have its own Alamo Drafthouse this summer, which would have made up for the Upper Westside Alamo Drafthouse getting nixed. Turns out we really can't have good thi...   0

Suicide Squad v Guardians of the Galaxy: A Tale of Two Soundtracks

Here's an underwhelming first look at Amazon's The Tick reboot

When we reported about Amazon's reboot of The Tick a few months ago, we learned that the reboot would be "darker and more grounded," which is exactly what people wanted from a parody of superheroes. Now we have our first look at this darker and more grounded version of The Tick and it's thoroughly underwhelming. Just take a look at the new costume:   0
