The 'Dog Wick' Trailer Is Exactly What You Want It to Be

Wed, 02/08/2017 - 06:51

It's so brilliantly simple. Thugs kill the only thing a former assassin loves, so he rampages through the underworld, bringing hellfire to anyone who is vaguely associated with the idiots who shot his puppy. But what if things went the other way around? What if the thugs killed John Wick instead? What...

Watch: 'The Lego Ninjago Movie' Teaser Introduces a Reluctant Team of Ninjas

Tue, 02/07/2017 - 06:54

Few movies have built up so much trust with audiences quite like The Lego Movie. When the movie was first announced, it was written off by many as a transparent cash grab, the logic being that since Legos obviously have no story of their own, a movie would surely exist as nothing more than a flashy way to sell more toys. But then the movie came out. It wasn't just a dazzling piece of animation. It wasn't just hilarious and creative. It also had a heartfelt, meaningful message about...

Wookie Cookies for Your Favorite Valentine

Mon, 02/06/2017 - 10:23

When it comes to finding the meaning of love on Valentine’s Day, Chewbacca said it best, “RRWWWGG.” Translated that could mean: “Do you want some fresh baked cookies?” or “I’m looking for passage to the Alderaan system.” Who knows? Let’s pretend it’s the former. Either way, love and friendship go hand in and hand, and nothing says "I love you" more than cookies. These buttery brown sugar cookies are frosted and covered in...
