Michael Mann Returns To TV With Vietnam War Miniseries ‘Huê 1968’
Today, Michael Mann is predominately associated with the big screen — indeed, few filmmakers make movies quite as big and cinematic as things like “The Last Of The Mohicans,” “Heat,” “Public Enemies” and yes, our beloved “Blackhat” (you’ll learn to like it one day, fools). But the director made his name in TV, initially writing on “Starsky & Hutch” before creating the acclaimed “Police Story,” and helping to shepherd the iconic “Miami Vice” and the less well known, but highly influential “Crime Story.

Star Wars Fan Film “Outer Rim” Shows What It’s Like For the Everyday Joe
When we watch any Star Wars movie we’re always exposed to the highest powered characters in the universe.

It’s not like we’re going to be watching movies of the everyday citizens who inhabit the galaxy. But what if we did? A new fan film for you to check

PETA Rips Rob Lowe for Accepting Colonel Sanders Role with KFC
Rob Riggle I can see as Colonel Sanders. In fact I think Riggle was doing a great job. But Rob Lowe? It just seems really foreign to me. I understand that Lowe’s taken a much more comedic approach to his acting over the past 5 years but something doesn’t feel right about this photo. And don’t get me wrong. I couldn’t care less about PETA and their reactions to this ad, even though I’ll share them anyway. “Rob Lowe just sold his soul to hawk the rotting carcasses of small, tortured birds. He’s lost all his animal-friendly fans, who are

5 Things to Watch Before They Leave Netflix in May 2017
There’s always a vast litany of shows and movies that get the ax on Netflix each month. The idea, of course, is that for every quality program removed, another will take its place. And while this rule has generally proven to be true, it is often inconsistently implemented. When taken as a whole, Netflix’s overall quality exists in a near perfect equilibrium. But when taken on a month by month basis, its offers stagger about wildly: with massive blocks of programs getting removed at the same time, only to be replaced by a drip-feed of must-see movies and shows over

Does ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Feature a Gay Character?
Marvel seems to have always been at the forefront of diversity with their comic line-ups: from X-Men acting as a stand-in for the fight for Civil Rights to their recent push to diversify their superhero lineups.

Christian Bale Has No Desire to Do Another Superhero Movie, However…..
It might surprise you to know that Christian Bale has no interest in playing a superhero ever again. Not only that, he’s never even watched a superhero movie apart from the ones he’s made and only one other film. To be honest this doesn’t surprise me in the least. There’s something about Christian Bale that makes this story completely believable. But the reality is that Christian Bale is one of the last superhero actors to premiere on the silver screen before the cinematic universe boom. He recently opened up and responded to whether or not he would take on another

Here’s How Some Nature Documentaries are “Fake”
Nearly 100% of shows on television are edited in some way. I think all of us know that reality shows aren’t really “reality” shows anymore. As much as you see authentic behavior and real life emotions and actions in front of you, there’s still a giant canvas in front of the editor of the program to construct any narrative they feel will work to get the best reaction out of the audience. So as much as you might think a real “fight” occurs on a TV program, while the fight itself was real, perhaps the build up, surrounding incidents, reactions

American Horror Story Confirms No One is Playing Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in Season 7
We all know that Ryan Murphy has said multiple times that season 7 of American Horror Story will have a focus on the 2016 presidential election. However, all of us are still in the dark about what that exactly means. Will the show itself be centered in the middle of the election? Will the show actually be political?

Ryan Murphy clarified one point in an interview with E! recently: The episodes will not
