Friends: The Reunion Is Made For Die-Hard Fans

After being delayed for over a year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, HBO Max has finally reunited Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer for the highly anticipated Friends: The Reunion special. Directed by Late Late Show producer Ben Winston, the unscripted gathering is the first time in 17 years that the Friends stars have been brought together since the show ended its ten-season run in 2004.

Friends: The Reunion begins with each cast member walking onto the recreated Friends soundstage on the Warner Bros lot. It’s filled with some emotional greetings and a good dose of reminiscing. The opening credits are (obviously) set to the show’s theme song and leads into a live interview hosted by late night television host James Corden.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight Gaming Mouse Is A Hit With Gamers

With all the fanfare surrounding the release of next-gen gaming units, PC gaming has sort of slipped into the shadows. But due to the hefty price tags attached to those consoles, gaming on your computer is a pretty good alternative – especially if you have the right gear.

At only 63 grams, Logitech’s G Pro X Superlight is essentially a feather-light version of the brand’s Pro Wireless mouse. But there are several other differences worth noting.

Channel Your Inner Captain America With This Leather Jacket

When it comes to clothes very few items come packaged with as much attitude, heritage and unfiltered coolness as a leather jacket. In the movies, they’re synonymous with brooding heroes, biker gangs and more. But in reality, they’re really a surprisingly versatile classic. And no wardrobe is complete without one.

Unfortunately, that isn’t very likely since we live in the boring real world. But thanks to an extensive range of perfectly crafted movie-replica leather jackets from Fit Jackets, you can still look like the superhero of your dreams.

Actor Sam Myerson Uses Social Media As His Own Comedy Sketch Show

With the entertainment industry in disarray due to the global pandemic, a lot of actors have had to find more creative ways of doing what they love. Although lots of famous folks use social media to keep their fans entertained, indie film star Sam Myerson has taken it to the next level.

The California native, who’s tirelessly worked to make a name for himself in Hollywood, is using his social media platforms to promote his own comedy sketches. His skits are a brilliant mix of current and classic humour, reminiscent of Jerry Seinfeld’s observational comedy.

Confessions That Can Get Your Movie Card Revoked

Social media platforms and pop culture forums have made it virtually impossible for anyone to have a differing opinion about a movie, television show, or fictional character. Openly express criticism of a popular movie and your timeline will be flooded with comments from strangers telling you why you’re wrong, or even stupid for not liking Movie X,Y or Z.

The argument usually escalates quickly, with your personal taste being equated with sexism, racism, bigotry, or whatever other terrible insult they have at the ready. In reality, this is a false equivalency. A difference of opinion about something (in the grand scheme of things) as insignificant as a movie really shouldn’t be just cause for online harassment or bullying.

So in the spirit of everyone being different but equally awesome, here’s a list of relatively unpopular opinions about some of the most famous movies in recent years that would probably get my movie card revoked.

Is Metacritic’s New Review Decision Leaning Towards Censorship?

Metacritic is implementing a 36-hour review delay to ensure that people actually had enough time to play a game before sharing their thoughts about it online.
Some gamers might view the move as an attempt to stifle their opinions, and perhaps it is. But is that really a bad thing?

Ever since the rise of social media, Joe Public has been given a platform to shift the narrative in various areas of the entertainment industry. It only takes a second for a seemingly harmless comment or tweet to spiral out of control, forcing studios to change their CGI graphics, fire a director or change their casting choice.

The truth is “cancel culture” hides under the guise of an opinion, which everyone is entitled to, regardless of the facts laid out in front of them. However, there needs to be a line drawn between the need to express and opinion and causing financial ruin to a company.

Marvel: How To Watch Every Movie In Scene-By-Scene Chronological Order

Marvel created something new with The Avengers in 2012. The movie brought together different heroes from their own stories into one big team-up movie. When that was done the characters parted ways and went back to their own sequels.

This type of storytelling has always been done in the comics. But doing it across 23 films with so many strong characters and undertones was brand new. While each movie may not be telling the exact same story, they all take place in the same universe and are connected by characters, events, and settings.

So if you’re new to the franchise you’d be forgiven for being a little confused as to how they all fit together, and in which order to watch them.

South African Cinemas Hoping to Open in July - But Will You Go?

Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the entire movie industry came to a screeching halt. Film and television productions were put on hold, while cinemas (including South African cinemas) themselves have been closed for almost two months (depending on which part of the world you’re in). But in recent weeks, Hollywood studios have held out hope that movie theatres will be back in business by early July.

In South Africa, the release of Unhinged will coincide with cinema openings across the globe. South African cinemas plan to open safely and will comply with all state public health department guidelines. Safety measures include socially distant seating (capacities of 25-50%), staggered showtimes to reduce crowding, and more time between each show to allow for increased cleaning.

Emergence - A Sci-Fi Mystery Focused On Family

Every new series comes with the promise of something exciting – an original premise, new characters to root for, and (hopefully) a story that keeps viewers wanting more. It’s a pretty simple three-step formula for creating a good series. And while the success of shows that bring beloved comic book characters to life is undeniable (and a personal favorite of mine), an original idea is always a nice change. Emergence gives viewers a good dose of change with its fresh cast, new premise and original storyline.

The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Season 3: Hell Has Never Been Hotter

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s horror-filled reimagining of our favourite half-witch half-mortal is back for a third season of – and hell has never been hotter.

Season three of The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina picks up one month later with Aunties Zelda and Hilda rallying what’s left of their coven to re-open the Academy of Unseen Arts.

Meanwhile, Sabrina is determined to make good on her vow to bring Nick back from Hell. After a few failed attempts she realizes the only way to save Nick is by claiming her rightful place as Queen of Hell. But there’s a catch. Citing infernal law, The Prince of Hell, Caliban challenges her claim to the throne.

As Sabrina focuses on Caliban’s challenge and business of being Queen, a battle for Greendale ensues in which she is forced to choose between the throne and the town she calls home.

New TV Series You Should Be Watching In 2020

The formula for any good TV series is pretty simple. You need likeable, compelling characters in a familiar but not overly familiar setting. These characters need to be unique but still relatable enough so that they’re not completely different from people you know or have seen on other TV shows.
Thanks to network television and a variety of streaming sites, there’s never a shortage of great shows to choose from. But with so many diverse viewing niches available to audiences, it’s easy for some shows to slip through the cracks.
So while we wait for Baby Yoda to return, here’s a list of new series you might have missed but are totally worth adding to your watch list.

Charmed Season 1 Celebrates All Things Witchy (Eventually)

In the world of entertainment, 2018 was definitely the year of the witch. For the first time since the ’90s our interest in them has piqued, as evidenced by the phenomenal success of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. So the excitement that surrounded the 2018 Charmed reboot is rather fitting.
The series opens with Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) sneaking out to a sorority party in her sister’s combat boots and Mel (Melonie Diaz) sending suggestive texts to an unidentified recipient. When Mel and Maggie return home from their respective nights out, they discover their mother (who was in the middle of unbinding their powers) lying lifeless on the ground outside.
Three months later while Mel and Maggie are doing their best to cope with the unsolved mystery surrounding their mother’s death, fate brings young scientist Macy Vaughn (Madeleine Mantock) to town.

Are SJWs And PC Culture-Based Propaganda Ruining Movies?

Movies are one of humanity’s greatest creations ever. Thanks to movies, we can travel back in time or even to a galaxy far, far away. We can escape to places beyond our wildest dreams and lose ourselves in the fantasy.
Movies are also a great way to learn. We can track the progress of humanity through the re-telling of stories about wars, gain insight into different countries and cultures and see just how much we have progressed as a society.
Like photographs, movies are a snapshot in time. This used to be the essence of all movies.
But lately Hollywood has tasked itself with leading us into a more “woke’ future by attempting to right the wrongs of all social evils. Having ditched the sexism, racial stereotyping and bigotry of yesteryear, Hollywood is attempting to erase the past in order to remedy the problem of unconscious bias.
But they’re not doing it very well.

What If Hulk’s Snap Created Mutants And The X-Men?

The worldwide box-office smash hit Avengers: Endgame marked the end of an era in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And after the movie’s spectacularly tragic ending fans were left wondering what the future of the MCU will look like.
The events of Avengers: Endgame quite literally opened up the MCU to a multiverse of exciting possibilities. We were introduced to the existence of alternate timelines and we now know that one of the “Snaps” created an inter-dimensional hole (as seen in the recent trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home).
While Marvel gets ready to launch their five-year plan for Phase 4, the biggest buzz surrounding the franchise is the possible introduction of the X-Men. Ever since the Disney/Fox merger became official there’s been a lot of speculation about how mutants might make their MCU debut.

Why Bucky Barnes Deserves To Be Captain America Instead

After what seemed like an eternity, the curtain closed on over ten years of MCU awesomeness with . While the ending was pretty satisfying it also left fans with a lot of questions heading into the new phase.
The speculation over who would take up the mantle of Captain America has been bubbling under the surface ever since the MCU introduced us to The Winter Soldier and The Falcon way back in 2014. With Chris Evans tweeting about retiring from the role before Endgame dropped, we always knew that Steve Rogers would have to choose a successor.
And he did…

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 Review – Embraces Its Dark Side

Our favourite half witch, half mortal is back! returns to Netflix on Friday, April 5th for season two (or more accurately, part two of season one). The 2018 reimagining of the classic Archie Comics character by showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa was a huge hit among fans as well as critics – and part two does not disappoint.
Season two picks up right after the winter break and opens with a very in-sync-with-her-powers Sabrina rocking her classic comic book white-blonde hairdo while getting some magical help with her wardrobe. But despite the light-hearted tone of the opening sequence, the first five episodes take on a more serious tone than part one.

The Umbrella Academy Review – A Great Addition To Netflix’s Superhero Collection

The Umbrella Academy is coming to Netflix. Said to be one of the streaming service’s most anticipated shows of 2019, the ten-episode series is an adaptation of the popular, Eisner award-winning comic books and graphic novels (of the same name) created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. Both Way and Bá serve as executive producers on the show, alongside showrunner and screenwriter Steve Blackman.
The story follows a team of super-powered siblings known as The Umbrella Academy, who fought evil for much of their childhoods under the tutelage of their guardian and mentor, Dr Reginald Hargreeves (aka The Monocle). Just like the comics, this is the premise of the series.

Sabrina Spellman’s Chilling Adventures Brings Fans “A Midwinter’s Tale”

It’s been about six weeks since The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina arrived on Netflix. And as expected the show, starring Kiernan Shipka in the title role, earned overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics and audiences alike for its blend of drama, horror and its talented cast.
As per the Netflix norm, the ten-episode first season was released in the streaming service’s typical binge format, and much to the delight of fans the series was picked up for a second season before the first even aired. But in a surprise move, writer and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had something extra planned for fans – a holiday special, titled The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale!

The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Review - As Bewitching As Ever

We meet Sabrina Spellman as she carefully crosses off days on her calendar, leading to the date where she’s written “16th Birthday” and just underneath that “Dark Baptism.”
Both her aunts (active in their coven, The Church of Night) are preparing Sabrina for her baptism and encourage her to do right by the Spellman family and transfer from Baxter High to a school for witches, The Academy of the Unseen Arts. The ancient institution is led by the coven’s high priest, Father Faustus but the corridors are ruled by a trio of powerful mean girls, dubbed “The Weird Sisters.”

Thanos Shattered A Moon But Captain Marvel Can Move Planets

Long before Steve Rogers was defrosted or Tony Stark built his first suit – there was Captain Marvel. Brie Larson recently revealed the staggering scale of her character’s abilities, “She’s so strong – she can move planets. So, for me, it was like, how far can I go with this strength? All of the hype will be worth it.”
Samuel L. Jackson who will reprise his role as (a younger) Nick Fury and has also teased that Carol Danvers’ powers will be like nothing we have ever seen before, and are the key to defeating Thanos and undoing “The Snap”.
Captain Marvel can control entire planets. But it’s not just her incredible strength that may be the key to saving the universe.

Zack Snyder's Justice League: Superman's Best Moment Is Also the Cut's Worst Edit
