Original Animaniacs cast to reunite for Hulu revival

It's been close to two years now since we've heard anything about the Animaniacs revival coming to Hulu. While we knew Steven Speilberg would be attached, we've now got confirmation that the original voice cast will be returning, as well. ...

Gather an army, the Ewoks are coming, the Ewoks are coming!

Being a filthy millennial, Ewoks are relegated to the past, largely seen as cynical additions to sell stuffed animals and foreshadow the Lucasing of the Star Wars. Most surprisingly, the Ewoks have appeared in four separate Star Wars p...

The Grinch 2000 is the worst Christmas movie I've ever seen

I hate it when my well thought out plans get screwed up.  Originally, this piece was going to be a feature about all of the various big screen and small screen adaptations of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, one of my favorite Christmas...

'Hyped' doesn't even cover it for the new Rugrats reboot

Drum roll, and cue the gloriously satisfying theme song, because Tommy, Dill, Angelica, Chuckie, Phil and Lil are back! More than ten years since Rugrats went off air, Nickelodeon and Paramount Players have just announced that the...

Stranger Things 3 sheds episode like pollywog skin

Stranger Things season 3 will run 8 episodes, down one from season 2 but the same as season 1.   No reason was announced, but since season 2 felt like it meandered a bit more than season 1, it may just indicate tighter storytell...

Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

Combing through nostalgic culture has become the norm, and unfortunately, so have the middling resulting projects. Audiences have, sadly, come to expect reboots to suffer as studios struggle to re-capture what made something popular in the ...

 
 
Baywatch Review photo

Review: Baywatch

Baywatch is another film in the same vein of nostalgic television reboots like The A-Team, CHiPs, and the crazily successful 21 Jump Street. A show known only for attractive people running in slow motion serving as a sort of softcore a...

New Carmen Sandiego animated series coming to Netflix in 2019

If you're a person of a certain age (i.e., you're old), you probably have some fond memories of Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? There were the computer games in the 80s and 90s, which spun off into a children's game show and an anima...

 
 
 
 
Review: The Void photo

Review: The Void

The 80s aesthetic is chic these days in genre films. Just take a look at Beyond the Black Rainbow, It Follows, or The Guest, among others. Homage and pastiche don't guarantee quality, of course, but it's an indicator that more and more...

 
 
 
Invader Zim TV movie photo

Invader Zim will return in TV movie form, meatbags!

Jhonen Vasquez was an important cultish part of my teenage years, and I can still find his creative fingerprints in my sense of humor. I loved his comics Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Squee (these days especially the latter); there w...

Every Power Rangers Season, Ranked

It's been a weird twenty something years. Power Rangers has seen good days and bad days, both supreme bouts of popularity and near cancellation. Yet somehow, this series has survived so long that it's managed to get three different adaptati...

Review: Power Rangers

More so than any of the reviews I've written, I feel I have to preface this one a bit. Since I (literally in some cases) hold the Power Rangers brand so close to my chest, I've been keeping a close eye on the reboot since the moment it was ...

Chips Trailer photo

First trailer for the CHiPs remake is pretty bad

Joining shows getting remade for the screen like The A-Team, 21 Jump Street, and Baywatch, is CHiPs, a show practically everyone forgot about. And like 21 Jump Street, this new Chips is trying to be a goofy buddy comedy that would reinvigor...

There's a new Child's Play in the works for some reason

For those not too in the know, the Child's Play series has been keeping a single story alive for 30 years now. For some reason I don't completely comprehend, Chucky has been a horror icon to many and a joke to more. But regardless the seven...

First trailer for Baywatch is a sexy reclaim to fame

I'm not sure anyone was actually looking forward to the Baywatch movie. We heard Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron signed on to star, but it wasn't on anyone's radar until now. This first trailer for the upcoming reboot actually got a few laughs...

The Power Rangers reboot Megazord is a f**king mess

The upcoming Power Rangers reboot may be releasing in five months, but we've only been shown one tiny teaser for it. When pressed about new footage at the NYCC panel, director Dean Isrealite stated they were saving a lot of that stuff for l...

To go along with the news of a New York Comic Con panel, first look at the zords, Elizabeth Banks as Rita, and Bryan Cranston as Zordon, is the coolest bit of news yet. Announced on Twitter, Bill Hader is joining the Power Rangers movie as ...

Check out these new, goofy Power Rangers movie posters

Power Rangers may be hitting theaters in a little over six months, but I feel like I've been waiting for it forever. Make fun all you want, but it's a big deal for me and a lot of  folks my age.  Along with these posters that...
