Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has a poster for us to Look At and Assume Things. It has Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio with a vintage car, and the Hollywood sign in the far background. This movie is set in 1969 so I am calling bullsh-t on that Hollywood sign. By 1969, the sign was severely deteriorated, with the “O” being broken so badly it looked like a “U”. Full Story

Here is something we could all use today: the irrepressible charm of human sunshine, Mark Ruffalo.

I really think there needs to be a three-month moratorium on Oscar talk following the Academy Awards, but life is inherently unfair so here we are, just a few weeks after the Oscars, already talking about next year’s Oscars. The subject? Jordan Peele’s Us. Just the trailer Full Story

Game of Thrones’ final season begins next month. Soon, after nearly a decade, we will know who wins the Iron Throne. But before that, let’s speculate wildly about the odds of the remaining great houses of Westeros and which of them will end up ruling the Seven Kingdoms. And I do mean GREAT houses—we’re talking about the Big Names here, not your Tarlys and your Tullys. Full Story

We are two months out from the release of Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake, and we are only just now getting a full trailer.
