  • Prince's Batdance Music Video from Batman 1989

    Apr 21, 2016

    Wow. This music video is hard to find. It's almost like someone would like to forget the late 1980s. Imagine that. Regardless, check out this music video from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film featuring the artist once and once again known as Prince, whose music accompanied the Dark Knight's live-action resurgence and helped catapult him into the pop culture spotlight where he's remained ever since. Besides ... The Joker wears purple ... Prince wears purple ... it was meant to be. Thank you, Prince.

  • The Walking Dead 1995 Style Intro

    Mar 05, 2017

    The 1990s were a prime time for science fiction TV. Literally. Prime time was filled with sci-fi TV shows! It's not hard to imagine how The Walking Dead might have looked if it were created in 1995 -- especially since this VHS-style intro shows us.

  • Walking Dead S7E12 and the Show's Dumbest Decisions

    Mar 06, 2017

    Let's digest The Walking Dead S7E12 Say Yes, aka A Series of Increasingly Dumb Decisions!

    We're conflicted about this one. Was it a fun episode or the worst? One thing we can agree on is that there is a direct correlation between the size of Rick's beard and the quality of his decisions.
    Rick and Michonne go on a honeymoon and ... hilarity ensues? Really? Their series of increasingly foolish mistakes inspired this week's countdown -- the 14 dumbest decisions made in The Walking Dead. Here are the stupidest, most head-scratchingly illogical, short-sighted, and catastrophic decisions that we've seen occur from season one to today. For the record, there are more than enough for a part two, so hang in there if we missed your favorite / least favorite moment!

    Mar 22, 2017

    Let's digest S7E14 "The Other Side", aka "The Jesus and Maggie Chain"
    Jesus is gay, and it ain't no thang. Maggie and Daryl finally have that talk, Simon steals the show (not just the Hilltop's stuff), Rosita and Sasha go on the world's most boring assassination mission, and, hey, Eugene looks like he's having fun! There are two episodes left, so what needs to happen to redeem season 7 and put right what once went wrong? Let's discuss our hopes and demands!

    Reactions to Logan, Kong: Skull Island, and March Movie News!

    Mar 22, 2017

    X-Men began the age of comic book movies and Logan ended it. While Logan benefits from ignoring cinematic universes, Kong: Skull Island has the burden of saving one thanks to the world's most boring giant monster movie -- Godzilla. We review and react to these blockbusters and break down recent announcements about Sony's Venom solo film, the Matrix revival, the Avatar sequels, and more!
    But seriously, Sony. Do you have to ruin Spider-man for the third time in a row?
