I cannot bear the secret any longer. Guys, you were right. You who complained that the media was somehow prejudiced against DC movies were right. You who thought that Marvel/Disney was paying off critics to praise their movies while slamming DC’s were right. You were always right. And now I must confess: there is a…
We all have those movies from our youth, the ones we remember almost too fondly to rewatch as an adult. Well, after suddenly coming down with a low-grade fever last week, I decided to pound two doses of Dayquil and turn on Stargate.
Sonic is a joke.
Recently, Sigourney Weaver said that Neill Blomkamp’s still-in-the-ether Alien movie be a new sequel to Aliens, meaning, it would render the series’ existing third and fourth films redundant. Alien 3 may be the most maligned film in the franchise, but it would be a shame to erase Ripley’s adventure on Fury 161, and…
You can’t blame Hollywood for its non-stop deluge of remakes, sequels, and prequels. Audiences keep showing up for them, and they take one of the most difficult parts of art—the idea—out of the equation. What’s unforgivable though is making a movie under the assumption a sequel will be made after it.
If you ever used and liked Snapchat, I’m sorry. It’s ruined now.
Here’s a fun idea: if you’re writing a book where the protagonists are children, maybe consider not having them marry each other later in life.
One of the latest Marvel casting rumors making the rounds is that Michael Barbieri’s Spider-Man: Homecoming character is based on Ganke Lee, who, in the comics, is the best friend of Miles Morales. Not regular Spider-Man, better known as Peter Parker. In the comics, Ganke Lee is a pudgy Korean-American who looks like…
This report about an all-glass iPhone is giving me palpitations. Apple do you want me to die? What would be the point of this mindless gimmick?
With five episodes already aired and seven episodes left in Person of Interest’s final season, we’re getting a very slow burn that we know can only end in tragedy. It’s the most stressful show on TV.
When I started working on io9 in 2007, we didn’t have a name for the site yet. We hadn’t come up with any real plans for how we were going to cover science fiction, science and futurism. But there was already a central idea that the site was based around: That science fiction is for absolutely everybody who enjoys it.
If you watched this past Sunday’s season premiere of Game of Thrones, you were treated with a brief return to Dorne, that south-most region of Westeros where last season’s most boring storyline took place. And then, after seeing one of the show’s greatest deviations from the books, you started wondering what the hell…
I bought the Apple Watch a year ago. I stopped wearing it two months ago, and I’m not sure if I’ll ever wear it again. That’s because it doesn’t really do anything that anyone needs, and even when it does, it doesn’t always work like it’s supposed to.
Two weeks. It’s been two full weeks since Sleepy Hollow ended a bad third season with one of the most awful, infuriating hours of TV I have ever watched. It was a finale that blew up the show’s soul (nearly literally!)—and even now, I can’t stop thinking about how much I hate it.
Two things became apparent after the end of the Spring 2016 Smartphone Glut. One: Android is still a second-class citizen when it comes to gaming, and two: smartphones are in a ridiculously boring place.
Whenever Game of Thrones ends, it’s safe to say that poor Tommen Baratheon won’t be sitting on the Iron Throne. The entire series (minus a few evil magical ice zombies) is about people jockeying to become the ruler of Westeros, with most signs pointing to the exiled Daenerys finally returning home and reclaiming the…
Going to the movies is a punch in the dick.
Actually, I’ll tell you how: The promotional material for the Warcraft movie has been atrocious. But that shouldn’t take away the fact that these gifs made by a Polish Warcraft fan are pretty great.
After years of stomach-churning anticipation, it’s all over—the VR headsets of the future are here. The Rift gives you an engaging experience with a handful of excellent games. Meanwhile, the Vive gives you unprecedented control of your virtual surroundings. But as extraordinary as both devices are, they’re absolute…
