It's about damn time Zelda Fitzgerald got her due.

http://bit.ly/2jt9lPq
Editor's Note: this review is spoiler-free! Feel free to enjoy before watching Z: The Beginning of Everything. Hear ye, hear ye: Zelda Fitzgerald has her own TV show (on Amazon, premiering on January 27, 2017) and holy god yes was it worth the wait. (Mostly.) For the unfamiliar, Zelda Sayre was a southern belle in the early 1900s who met a young soldier by the name of F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the two became something of the socialite Bonnie and C...

From Game of Thrones to Taboo, Oona Chaplin thinks incest on TV asks hard questions of the audience.

http://bit.ly/2j0mALf
TV loves incest. This isn't so much a matter of opinion as it is hard-worn fact: Game of Thrones loves it, Bates Motel talks about it, Boardwalk Empire did it, Lost was sorta into it, Dexter certainly dug it, and now there's Taboo—FX's new miniseries that stars Tom Hardy as James Delaney, and his half-sister, played by Oona Chaplin. And guess what? These two are also staunchly situated in the bone zone. Naturally, the portrayer of Thrones' Talisa...

In Voltron episode 9, Hunk and Keith literally go into the belly of the beast.

http://bit.ly/2j09fCQ
This is a Voltron: Legendary Defender recap, of the ninth episode of season two. That episode is called "The Belly of the Weblum." If you haven't seen that episode and don't want to be spoiled, please turn back now, good paladin. Voltron: Legendary Defender's eighth episode, "The Blade of Marmora," turned out to be a pivotal one. Not only did it finally bring the paladins of Voltron officially in league with the clandestine group of Galra turncoa...

Somebody's Overwatch cosplay is going to be hottttttt. (They may literally set things on fire.)
Tracer's backstory from Overwatch is pretty out there. Becoming a test pilot for a teleporting fighter jet, getting lost in (presumably) another dimension, and then coming back months later like Billy Pilgrim from Slaughterhouse-Five getting stuck and unstuck in time, is all firmly in the realm of fiction. But Tracer's pulse pistols are a different story. They can be built (approximately) in real life, and thanks to YouTuber LaserGadgets, now the...

Who else needs to play this Lovecraftian video game?
http://bit.ly/2kmlTrX
For the better part of a century, the elder god known as Cthulhu has been an icon of horror fiction, but now his might is being unleashed in a new Lovecraftian video game. Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game is based on the long running RPG of the same name by Chaosium, which was itself inspired by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. Cthulhu was easily one of Lovecraft's most famous creations, but the author's true genius was the sense of dread ...

So then where would a Wolverine/Deadpool meet-up take place?

http://bit.ly/2j7SXTv
Happy Monday, my fellow Movie Morselers! Let's get this work week started with the most intriguing news we've yet heard about Hugh Jackman's final movie as Wolverine — Logan. Plus, a casting update for Black Panther, a first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison in The Current War, and lots more to make your Monday just a little merrier. But first! Logan Snikt! So it turns out that Logan might not be the final word on Hugh Jackman's Wolv...

Jordan Peele tells an important story with Get Out, and does so in quite an exciting way.
http://bit.ly/2j9Vbls
Many fans of Jordan Peele and his long history of sketch comedy work were likely surprised, maybe even disappointed, by the announcement that his first go at feature film directing would yield a horror-thriller picture. After all, following Peele through five seasons of MadTV, and five more of his and Keegan-Michael Key’s eponymous Comedy Central brainchild has led us to expect certain things from any project that springs from the multi-hyphenate...

Find out who's nominated, AS IT'S HAPPENING, right here!

http://bit.ly/2j0gpab
Here it is, movie snobs: the one day a year we want to wake up early to read a list of movie titles. And with good reason, because the 89th Academy Awards ceremony is just over a month away (on February 26, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel), so having a list of nominees to speculate upon is certainly a worthy list. And we're going to be dishing about it right here, right now, as they're announced, starting at 8:18 a.m. ET/5:18 a.m. PT Tuesday morning. Ther...

Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell steal the show in Dee Rees’ remarkable Mudbound.
http://bit.ly/2jrjITI
Even if you somehow manage to walk away unenthused by the Sundance Film Festival premiere Mudbound, there’s no conceivable way to be unimpressed by it. The task that sophomore filmmaker Dee Rees shoulders in adapting Hillary Jordan’s like-named novel is no mean feat, nor is the vivid communication of themes that much of the world seems bent on turning a blind eye to. Sure enough, such a trying endeavor reaps no shortage of hiccups. Slow stretches...

Voltron's Red Lion paladin fights for answers in our latest recap.

http://bit.ly/2jjSH7o
Friends! Paladins! Slipperies-Havers! Lend me your eyeballs! The following is a recap of Voltron: Legendary Defender season two episode eight, "The Blade of Marmora." By its very nature it will be full of spoilers. If you don't want to be spoiled, go watch the episode and then come back. If you do want to be spoiled, well then God bless you. Well, "Space Mall" was a nice respite from all the dark stuff in season two of Voltron: Legendary Defender...
