Doctor Who Season 12 Promises Classic Monsters!

With the Doctor’s regeneration from Peter Capaldi into Jodie Whittaker in the 11th season of the Doctor Who revival, the series got its own facelift, with all-new planets and all-new monsters introduced to the show. But despite Whittaker’s enthusiastic turn as the 13th Doctor and a few standout episodes, Doctor Who just didn’t feel like Doctor Who anymore. This could be blamed on the lack of old villains, with the exception of the return of the Daleks in the New Year’s Day special. However, it seems like showrunner Chris Chibnall is loosening his “no old monsters” policy.

Patty Jenkins Teases Why Wonder Woman Sequel is Set in 1984

During a recent guest appearance on Deadline's Crew Call podcast, Patty Jenkins teased her reasoning for setting next summer's Wonder Woman sequel in 1984. As some have speculated, that very specific choice of year could be a not-so-subtle nod to George Orwell, whose 1949 book of the same name is an exemplar of the dystopian subgenre in science fiction.

Oscar Isaac and JJ Abrams Discuss Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

There’s a desert valley in southern Jordan called Wadi Rum, or sometimes “the Valley of the Moon.” There are stone inscriptions in Wadi Rum that are more than 2,000 years old. Lawrence of Arabia passed through there during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire. More recently, J. J. Abrams went there to film parts of the latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker, because it’s largely uninhabited and starkly beautiful and looks plausibly alien, and one of the things that has always made the Star Wars movies feel so real—as if they had a real life of their own that continues on out beyond the edges of the screen—is the way they’re shot on location, with as few digital effects as possible. George Lucas shot the Tatooine scenes from A New Hope in southern Tunisia. For Skywalker, it’s Wadi Rum.

Movie Review: Aladdin

By Jason McLean of the Vagabond Nerds

Let’s not bury the lead here, Disney’s remake of Aladdin is clunky but fun and enjoyable for children (below 13) or adults who go in with very low expectations. While I’m not certain that co-writer and director Guy Ritchie knows how musicals work It doesn’t stray too far from the original, it is legitimately funny (at times), it has little to no actual violence and two action sequences that were very well done. My opinion, is you should go see this movie if you have kids and want to take them to a movie that they will appreciate and won’t bore you to tears (as can be the case for kid’s films).

It's a New York Standoff in Latest Dark Phoenix Clip

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we've come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet -- one of their own.
