WHAT TV SERIES WENT ON LONGER THAN IT SHOULD HAVE? It seems to be a common occurrence. A show has a great season or two and then decides to keep pushing the show to a much longer run than needed.
STAR WARS MACHETE - MODIFIED: By now a lot of people are aware of the "Machete" method of watching Star Wars, as IV, V, II, III, VI. However, DT has come up with a whole new list.
WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 looks dominate and Ryan provides a spoiler-free review. Chuck also looks very interesting, telling the true origin story of Rocky.
THE DARK TOWER: We'll break down the trailer, speculate as to where it sits in relation to the books and fill you in on some Easter Eggs hidden within it.
THE DEFENDERS: All four of Marvel's Netflix superheros are in action together for the first time.
THE HANDMAID'S TALE: Set in a not-so-distant, dystopian future, this series deals with some very heavy topics. However, the acting and writing is truly phenomenal.
HOUSE OF CARDS SEASON 5: This was the precipice for our overall question today. We'll debate whether a Season 5 of House of Cards was necessary. (or 3...or 4...)
THE OUTLAW KING: Fans of historical biopics will be excited to see this story of Robert the Bruce of Scotland come to life. Chris Pine and Ben Foster are also set to star.
GODZILLA VS. KING KONG: We finally have a date and schedule for the release of the next movies, culminating in the epic showdown between these two monsters.
DEVITO & GOLDBLUM: These two legends are teaming up for a future comedy series from Amazon and we could not be more excited.
GEARS OF WAR MOVIE: The person behind writing the next 4 sequels to Avatar, will be penning the script for Gears of War. Do we need another video game movie?
THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS: Melissa McCarthy, Jim Henson Studios, Muppets, the seedy underbelly of LA and series of puppet murders. Nothing more needs to be said, except we're ready to watch.
