The pieces come together for first LEGO Movie 2 trailer

I am hyped for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part because it looks like it's basically the first movie, but more. Most of the time when a movie is just the first movie but more things go wrong. Jokes get recycled, characters get dull, ...

Rick and Morty scores 70 episode deal with Adult Swim

FX and Donald Glover exit Marvel TV Deadpool animated series

Review: Isle of Dogs

Do you like Wes Anderson? Then you'll like Isle of Dogs. It's got everything we've come to expect from the director, who has basically created a genre named after himself. The film is full of his signature symmetrical shots; his stunni...

Ricky and Morty season 4 hasn't even been ordered yet

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I say that Rick and Morty is one of the best shows that is currently airing on Adult Swim. Between its pitch black sense of humor and its wild adventures, the show hit a sweet spot for a lot of people and ...

See Early Man early and free

February likes to pump out kids movies because that helps the box office survive, and Early Man is one of those movies. But it's also from Aardman Animation so it's actually kind of exciting. Their work isn't always the best, but it's alway...

Review: GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters

Netflix's anime feature, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters,  is a mixture of fantasy and science fiction elements with some play at political intrigue, which makes this familiar tale somewhat fresh and enjoyable, but it doesn't ex...
