FREE MOVIE: The Interview (Yes, this is legit. No, this is not a trick.)

By now, we all know how we got to this point. The “Guardians of Peace” Sony email hacks, subsequent FBI investigation and further North Korea-sourced death threats puckered up the Sony brass’s collective assholes so tightly that they tucked their tails between their legs and cancelled the December 16 cinematic release of Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogan and James Franco’s The Interview. After some deserved anti-censorship pressure, […]

TV PREVIEW: The Walking Dead Season Five [Heavy S4 Spoilers]

I really hate it when good things come to an end, especially good entertainment. When Battlestar Galactica (2004) ended, I was depressed for weeks. When The Killing and even the Mass Effect Trilogy ended I cried and I’m already readying myself for a bout of minor depression when Uncharted 4 concludes and that hasn’t even been released yet. The reason […]
