It's not at the level of absurdity of, say, casting Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist in The World Is Not Enough, but I do have to look somewhat askance at the recently crowned "Sexiest Man Alive" Chris Hemsworth as the only computer hacker with the skills — sorry, skillz — to prevent the hackpocalypse in Michael… » 12/12/14 11:15am 12/12/14 11:15am

It Takes 6​ Minutes To Show Every Death In The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy

Someone has assembled this supercut of every single death shown in Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and Return of the King, and suddenly it dawns on me that LotR is, in a sense, mostly a tale of genocide against orcs.

So why did my socks stay on so firmly during this finale? » 12/10/14 10:30am 12/10/14 10:30am

​Should Any Star Wars Movies Be Made Without George Lucas?

Happy holidays, folks! It's just about time for me to shack up with Olivia Williams in our annual winter vacation, so this is the last "Postal Apocalypse" for a few weeks.

Maybe so! As as theory on Imgur posits, the next group of bad guys to torment Rick and the others may be the Whisperers, a group of lunatics who wear the skin of zombies and whisper to each other in order to stay unnoticed by the dead.

Paramount Thinks Transformers 4 May Be The Best Picture Of The Year

Because they've just taken out an ad asking the Academy to consider the movie about giant robots blowin' shit up for Best Picture, as well as pretty much every other available Oscar. Transformers 4 was the least egregiously awful movie in the franchise, but does that achievement make it Oscar-worthy? I say thee nay. » 12/09/14 6:40am 12/09/14 6:40am
