She became more of a warrior only in the last two decades. Wonder Woman effectively combined both of those roles, which has led to more than one casual fan asking themselves about Wonder Woman’s history. Comic Book Resources, one of the websites I […]

Since Game of Thrones Season 7 is upon us — the second to the last season! — I assume that secrets are going to start pouring out of Westeros fast. I’ve made a lot of my theories known already, but I thought it might be fun to go back to the very first moments of […]

6 Harry Potter Themes in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has several things in common with J.K. Rowling’s other wizarding world movies. And I don’t mean wands and Grindewald. J.K. Rowling wrote Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as an original screenplay, whereas the Harry Potter movies were adapted from her novels. Fantastic Beasts marks her first time writing […]

Sexism and Androids in Entertainment

Recently, I wrote about androids in entertainment for Comic Book Resources. With the popularity of Westworld, and a new Blade Runner being released soon, I wrote it because I thought it was time to revisit all the great almost-human androids we’ve seen on TV and in movies. While I was researching that list, however, a definite trend […]

Why Do We Need ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Movie?

1933’s King Kong is one of my favorite movies. When I was young, under five-years-old, I saw it for the first time on a flickering black and white TV on a Saturday afternoon, and became obsessed with dinosaurs, adventures, and especially King Kong himself. That’s right, my first love was a giant ape. The first movie […]

Why is Dr. Evazan in ‘Rogue One?’

A Rogue One theory about Dr. Evazan, a minor character, who appeared in the original Star Wars movies. File this theory under “longshot,” but I kept asking myself, Why did Dr. Evazan appear in Rogue One?

3 Reasons ‘Frozen’ is Personal

The success of Frozen isn’t news to anyone. The movie is nearing $400 million in worldwide box office sales.

Some Completely Unreasonable Expectations for ‘Rogue One’

You know what I most vividly remember about seeing the first Star Wars movie?  That it didn’t seem like a regular movie, but rather like some kind of strange, special event.  I was 7.  I didn’t know anything about hype or watch the news about the blockbuster phenomena.  Hell, I’m not even sure how long the […]

5 Daenerys Targaryen Scenes That Prove She’s Badass

Few characters on Game of Thrones have had as many badass scenes as Daenerys Targaryen. What is a badass scene? It’s a scene when a character gets the upper hand in an epic, and possibly terrifying, way. Usually it’s accompanied by a wide camera pullback.
