Rest in Queso: Alamo Drafthouse Declares Chapter 11 Some Closures

Rest in Queso: Alamo Drafthouse Declares Chapter 11, Some Closures

The Alamo Drafthouse chain of theaters, known for their zero-tolerance of theater talking, their chips and queso, fried pickles, and cocktails paired with movies, and especially known for their avant-garde programming, are declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy and will be purchased by Altamont Capital and Fortress Investment. The Texas-based chain has theaters in 40 locations from […]

The Flash S07E01 Alls Wells That Ends Wells A Slow Start: Review

The Flash S07E01 "Alls Wells That Ends Wells" A Slow Start: Review

Come on, The Flash. You're better than this. After almost a yearlong break (understandable), it's great to see Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash return. Unfortunately, it feels like they just delivered a weak return instead of coming back with a bang. There's only so much we can blame on COVID and production delays […]

Batwoman S2E06 Do Not Resuscitate Review: Endless McGuffin Chase Drags

Batwoman S2E06 Do Not Resuscitate Review: Endless McGuffin Chase Drags

This week's episode of The CW's Batwoman feels a bit like a placeholder. While not quite a "bottle episode," many of the main characters sit in chairs on the same sets for long periods of time moving some exposition forward. While punctuated with a few moments of action, it's not quite as engaging as we've […]

Michael Rosenbaum Jon Cryer Continue Trolling Out-Lexing Each Other

Michael Rosenbaum, Jon Cryer Continue Trolling, Out-Lexing Each Other

Michael Rosenbaum, the Lex Luthor of Smallville, and Jon Cryer, Lex Luthor of The CW's Arrowverse, have a relationship worthy of the character they both played. It's a bromance for the ages as they lightly one-up each other over who is the fairest Lex of them all. Imagine actual Lex Luthor reaching out to Infinite […]

Batwoman Season 2 E03 Bat Girl Magic Review: We Get Zsasz &#038 Pizazz

Batwoman Season 2 E03 Bat Girl Magic Review: We Get Zsasz & Pizazz!

This week's Batwoman gives us a preview of where exactly the season may be going, starts teasing some character dynamics and backstories, but also really leans into what it means for Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) to really take on the persona of Batwoman and make it her own. And while the mains storyline follows classic […]

Lupin Season 1 Steals Its Way Back to Netflix with Part 2 This Summer

More episodes of Netflix's Lupin are on their way! The Omar Sy led gentleman thief drama is already Netflix's biggest French-language series ever and one of the first must-watch shows of 2021. But the fifth episode ends on a cliffhanger, leaving fans desperate to find out what happens next. Netflix has answered, tweeting today a […]

Batwoman S02E02 Prior Criminal History Review: Solid Disjointed Ep

Batwoman S02E02 "Prior Criminal History" Review: Solid, Disjointed Ep

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] After introducing Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) in episode 1, Team Batwoman has to make a major choice. Do we keep up with this happy accident, this twist of fate that landed the batsuit in Ryan's lap? Or do they all just start going on with their lives hoping that somehow Kate Kane will […]

Batwoman Season 2 Ep 1 Whatever Happened to Kate Kane [Review]

Batwoman Season 2 Ep 1 Whatever Happened to Kate Kane? [Review]

This review of Batwoman Season 2 Episode 1 contains SPOILERS for the episode.  Batwoman is back, with Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) taking up the cowl and becoming a very different kind of Batwoman. This episode had a near-impossible task: reset the series after its abrupt Season 1 ending and cement Ryan Wilder as the new Batwoman. It […]

Lupin Reimagines Gentleman Thief Caper TV for the 21st Century

Lupin Reimagines Gentleman Thief Caper TV for the 21st Century

Netflix's Lupin excellently reboots and adapts the Arsène Lupin stories in the early 1900s while updating them for the 21st century. Starring Omar Sy (Jurassic World, X-Men: Days of Future Past) and with a pilot episode directed by Louis Leterrier (who directed the MCU Incredible Hulk film) it's the first eminently bingeable shows of 2021. Also […]

Why Critical Role and Binging with Babish Were the Best TV of 2020

Why Critical Role and Binging with Babish Were the Best TV of 2020

With 2020 in the books and all the retrospectives done, it's time to face some cold, hard facts: broadcast network TV as we know it is a wasteland. Cable is better, but it shouldn't be surprising that Bleeding Cool's Top 10 of 2020 was dominated by shows premiering on streaming platforms Amazon Prime, Netflix, and, […]

Yellowstone Season 1 Review: Game of Thrones But with More Cattle

Yellowstone Season 1 Review: "Game of Thrones" But with More Cattle

I have a new television obsession, and it is Yellowstone. This show which had been hiding (from me at least) in plain sight on the Paramount Network (where? Oh, that channel that used to be Spike TV?) tells the story of the Dutton family and their Yellowstone ranch. Spread over an acreage larger than Rhode […]

Thanksgiving with the 99: Our Brooklyn 99 Turkey Day Episode Rankings

Thanksgiving with the 99: Our Brooklyn 99 Turkey Day Episode Rankings

Brooklyn 99 and holidays go together like turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Unless, of course, you're like Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and hate the holiday, preferring to spend it watching football and eating "mayo nut spoonsies" (spoonfuls of mayonnaise and peanuts). But we have a better idea: celebrate Turkey Day with the best Thanksgiving episodes […]

Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina Offers a Little Animation 101

Hey, critters! If you're a fan of Critical Role — that self-described "bunch of nerdy-ass voice actors who sit around playing Dungeons and Dragons" on Twitch and YouTube — then you know they've been hard at work bringing the story of their first campaign to life in their animated series The Legend of Vox Machina.

The New Mutants is a Sleeper Hit as it Hits Top of On Demand Services

The New Mutants is a Sleeper Hit as it Hits Top of On Demand Services

The long-delayed The New Mutants is showing everyone its true nature as it hits the top of both Vudu and FandangoNOW's lists of the most profitable films for the past week. Buoyed by strong word of mouth (or perhaps morbid curiosity?), and despite middling reviews, the scrappy young mutants seem to be clawing to the […]

We Can Do Better Than Tom Hardy as James Bond

We Can Do Better Than Tom Hardy as James Bond

The rumors keep swirling that Tom Hardy will be the next person to take up the role of James Bond after No Time To Die hits theaters in 2021. And while in many ways he is perfect for the role (and there are many reasons to believe these rumors are not true), we can do […]

Community Harley Quinn &#038 More: Giancarlo Esposito Is Comedy Gold

Community, Harley Quinn & More: Giancarlo Esposito Is Comedy Gold

When you want an immediately iconic villain, better call Giancarlo Esposito. He is Gus Fring in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian, and Stan Edgar in The Boys. He is everywhere, and with good reason. For a long time, Esposito has been a secret weapon, adding gravitas, menace, or whatever […]

Tenet Review: It Isnt Coming to Save Anyone Much Less US Cinemas

Tenet Review: It Isn't Coming to Save Anyone, Much Less US Cinemas

So much weight has been placed on Christopher Nolan's newest film Tenet that it almost isn't fair. In a typical 2020, it would've been just another blockbuster set amongst half a dozen others. But 2020 is anything but normal, and with movie theaters closed for months, the expectations that Tenet will bring people back to […]
