Tue, 02/24/2015 - 09:58

We have seen plenty of trailers and TV spots for Avengers: Age of Ultron so far, but only one official poster that was simply the Avengers symbol (the Comic-Con concept art doesn't count). But now Marvel's fixed that with a new poster that brings the entire gang together. So what stands out? Perhaps Black Widow's Tony Stark-ified suit, which looks like it's packing a little extra punch. It's also notable that The Vision still looms over everyone, the sun...

The Best Oscars Fun Fact (If You're a Batman Fan)

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 11:06

During an Oscars® night that was mostly fueled by politics -- from Patricia Arquette's moving female-equality speech to Common's powerful "Glory" acceptance speech to Citizenfour winning Best Documentary -- it was The Lego Movie's silent protest that may have stolen the show. The Lego Movie wasn't nominated in the Best Animated Feature category (see all of the night's winners here), and so when it came time for a performance of the film's song,...

How Popcorn for Dinner Became Our Family Movie Tradition

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 05:00

Like many things, it started by mistake. It was a school night, and normally going to a movie would not have been on the table, but there had been promises made and there would be promises kept. We found the earliest showing available, not realizing until we were in the cold, dark theater that dinner had been lost in our pursuit of haste. We were hungry, and on the verge of growing hungrier. “Let’s all go to the lobby,” I said. Then we stepped up to the snack counter, half...
