A recent interview with Sophie Turner seems to confirm rumours that the next X-Men movie is about to be filmed. Wow, that seems super-fast. I have a modest proposal: Maybe that shouldn't happen?

It's been confirmed that Legendary's Godzilla-King Kong movie universe is called the "MonsterVerse." It's a name absolutely guaranteed to get confused with Universal's new universe based on its old horror monsters. But it's not that much better than Arrowverse. Or the DCEU. Or whatever Star Wars is using these days.
Star Trek: The Original Series has a lot of great episodes, running the gamut from the emotionally devastating ("The City on the Edge of Forever") to the comedic ("The Trouble With Tribbles"). And yet, for my money, no episode is a better example of everything the Original Series got right than "Journey to Babel".
Video: Sonic is a joke. That's what happens when something crafted by market research to be "cool" stumbles along for 25 years. But it's not just the irritating "Gotta go fast! Chilli dogs!" attitude that Sonic is supposed to convey that makes him an unsympathetic relic to the worst parts of the '90s.

Recently, Sigourney Weaver said that Neill Blomkamp's still-in-the-ether Alien movie be a new sequel to Aliens, meaning that it would render the series' existing third and fourth films redundant. Alien 3 may be the most maligned film in the franchise, but it would be a shame to erase Ripley's adventure on Fury 161, and here's why.
The life cycle of a trend usually goes something like this: Manic obsession, backlash, backlash to the backlash, slow death. With the Pokemon GO craze, it seems that the "manic obsession" phase has just about run its course, which is lovely because that means we're one step closer to that slow, gentle death. (How sweetly she coos.)
One of the latest Marvel casting rumours making the rounds is that Michael Barbieri's Spider-Man: Homecoming character is based on Ganke Lee, who, in the comics, is the best friend of Miles Morales. Not regular Spider-Man, better known as Peter Parker. In the comics, Ganke Lee is a pudgy Korean-American.
If you watched the season premiere of Game of Thrones, you were treated with a brief return to Dorne, that south-most region of Westeros where last season's most boring storyline took place. And then, after seeing one of the show's greatest deviations from the books, you started wondering what the hell is happening here.
