Pacific Rim: Uprising is the start of a cinematic universe

If you have a movie franchise these days, even if it isn't that successful, you evidently have to make it a cinematic universe. It's just a rule now. Studios want money and the way to make money these days is assumed to be a cinematic unive...

Your Bad Movie Night Guide, Vol. 9: Chopping Mall

In Volume 9 of Your Bad Movie Night Guide, we cover Chopping Mall, our first reader suggestion, brought to you by @TheLimoMaker. I nearly typed chopping block, as chopping mall makes very little sense, even after seeing the m...

Transformers: The Last Knight's Super Bowl spot is a disaster

The first Transformers: The Last Knight trailer was a complete mess. Those hoping new footage would somehow make sense of it (me) are going to be gravely disappointed. The Super Bowl spot clears up one thing, Optimus is clearly being manipu...

Universal working on live-action Voltron film

Studios have wanted a live-action Voltron reboot for some time. Before being bought by Universal, Dreamworks Animation had been chugging away at a script for years. But now after their mild success from the Netflix show, Voltron: Legendary ...

Here's a trailer for Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender

Adding to the mass of nostalgia, and to Netflix's ever growing original programming, is Voltron: Legendary Defender. Studios have been trying to figure out what to do with Voltron for years with a movie in mind and a failed Nickelodeon show...

5 Other Cinematic Robots That Should Be In WWE 2K16

Yesterday we had a list of five other Arnold Schwarzenegger characters who should be in WWE 2K16. (I apologize for leaving out Kindergarten Cop's Detective John Kimble.) With all that Arnie in one place, the game would basically become a Sc...

 
 
 
Terminator Genisys Review photo

Review: Terminator - Genisys

Based on the stupid title, initial plot description and Entertainment Weekly photos, I was a little more than skeptical about Terminator: Genisys. Even though the synopsis had many, many things I loved in it (time travel, Emilia Clarke, Arn...

Newest Ex Machina trailer looks fantastic

I'm the kind of jerk that always has to make some sort of "Mr. Roboto" reference every time I see a film with an advanced robot or artificial intelligence, but Ex Machina is the first film in quite a while to make me second guess myself. T...

Chappie Review photo

Review: Chappie

I really do adore Neill Blomkamp, and his first film, District 9, in particular. Although it doesn’t have as many fans as it did back in 2009, I still hold it up as one of the most spectacular debuts in recent years. His sophomore pro...

Super Bowl TV spot for Tomorrowland

Super Bowl TV spot for Terminator: Genisys

This Super Bowl spot for Terminator: Genisys may take a bit of footage from the first (hilariously convoluted) trailer, but there's a bit at the end that I'm most excited for. Also, it's really hard looking at this newest poster touting Ar...

Second Chappie trailer has robots and robot accessories

Neill Blomkamp always makes some interesting, if not always entertaining, science fiction, so I'm definitely curious as to where Chappie is headed. It's got ED-209s, Hugh Jackman using his natural accent for once, and Sigourney Weaver is i...

Real Steel 2 in development, but not likely

As a fan and supporter of the first Real Steel I was happy to hear a while back that they were working a sequel. While the movie wasn't perfect it was just enough fun to make it worth your while and I figured that more boxing robots co...

Pacific Rim getting a sequel, more comics and TV show

Transformers: Age of Extinction gets adorable propaganda

While a viral "propaganda" marketing campaign may not be the most original (Carrie, District 9 instantly come to mind as recent examples), I still like to see it. Three years after the events of the third film, Dark of the Moon, Transformer...
