Stranger Things—an eight-part Netflix series that debuts July 15—is set in the 1980s and is heavily influenced by Stephen King and Steven Spielberg works of the era, including E.T., Firestarter, It, Stand By Me, and Poltergeist. Heavily, heavily influenced. Is that a bad thing? Certainly not when it’s this much fun to…
The debut of Netflix’s Stranger Things is just a few weeks away, and while this new trailer gives us a glimpse of its biggest-name star, Winona Ryder, it focuses on the four boys and mysterious girl who are the real focus of this E.T.-meets-Close Encounters of the Third Kind-meets-”basically everything Steven…
Kids on BMX bikes cruising misty suburban streets at night, Hazmat suit-clad figures with flashlights, a pigtailed blonde moppet, a wide-eyed boy, a desperate mother ... all that appears to be missing from Netflix’s new series Stranger Things is a lovable, candy-obsessed alien, otherwise it’d be E.T.
Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, which came out 25 years ago this week, is more than just an updating of Frankenstein. It’s the story of a gentle robot who tries to live among regular people—and when I saw it as a little kid, this movie meant everything to me.

Winona Ryder just spilled the beans that she probably going to return as the great Lydia Deetz for Beetlejuice 2. Okay, she didn't outright SAY that, but the implication is there, and it is awesome. Three important questions remain: What is Lydia Deetz up to now? What is she wearing? And where can I buy it?
Tim Burton is returning to his 1984 short Frankenweenie with a full-length, stop-motion, black-and-white remake. It's about an introverted suburban kid who also happens to be a mad scientist...and how far he goes to see his beloved dog again.
Last month, we told you that Winona Ryder has never used the Internet. Tonight, during a Late Night interview with Jimmy Fallon, Ryder explained why: she's afraid that, while Googling, she'll "suddenly be a member of Al-Qaeda." Buh? Watch inside.
Winona Ryder is the latest in a long line of actors to join the cast of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek rehash (as Spock's mom!?), and at this point we get it. Yes, they are making a new Star Trek film.
