Welcome to the darkest year of their adventures. All-new episodes begin July 30th at 11:30p ET.

Rick and Morty is Adult Swim’s most scientifically accurate animated comedy. Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, it catalogues the bizarre misadventures of a bored scientific genius/drunkard and his socially awkward grandson, Morty. Their exploits tend to have unintended consequences for Morty’s dysfunctional family, especially his unfailingly mediocre father, Jerry. Watch Rick and Morty battle everything from interdimensional customs agents to Cronenberg monsters again starting July 30th.

“So much happens in [the 3rd and 4th Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told io9. “So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about.”

and

“I hope [the news comes] after that. I think there will be certain elements that start to come about, not the least of which is the already announced release date of the next Spider-Man film. But other than that we’re going to keep it very close to the vest because this is really about focusing on the unprecedented conclusion to a 22-movie overarching narrative.”

Can’t wait for the 7th!

8 of Our Favorite Episodes of The Big Bang Theory

Atom

The Big Bang Theory is a sitcom about a group of four socially awkward scientists and their (shock of all shocks) girlfriends. The level of acting and comic timing of the ensemble cast, coupled with the superb writing, makes for a winning series. In thinking about the series, it is difficult to come up with the eight funniest episodes, but here’s a good try, and they’re in no particular order.

6 Reasons Why We Adore Arrested Development

Why do we love Arrested Development so much? Because, although it’s smart, savvy, and beautifully presented, it’s a standard three-camera sitcom at heart. And because it copies one of the major television innovations of the 21st century, reality TV. The show is shot with a single hand-held camera, with a documentary-style voiceover (which is often funnier than the characters themselves). Every scene could be executed in the classic three-camera style, complete with live studio audience and laugh track.

Silly Action Movies That Make Us Laugh

Sales of theater tickets, Blu-Ray discs, and DVDs make it clear that movie-goers still like their traditional action flicks. Something about the drama, suspense, fighting, and special effects is still captivating to the crowds of people looking for entertainment.

Of course, just watching the same tired, old plots gets boring for any genre. New elements must be introduced, from time to time, and that is where action-comedies come in. Continue reading Silly Action Movies That Make Us Laugh

Our Favorite Quips from the Lego Batman Movie

If you like superheroes and hilarious one-liners, The Lego Batman Movie fits right into your repertoire of movie selections. Right from the first moments of the film, there was witty banter that kept both kids and adults laughing for the entire hour and forty-four minutes of show time. Most of our favorite quips from the Lego Batman movie are between Batman and the infamous villain, The Joker. Others are with Richard (his friends call him “Dick”), whom Batman has accidentally adopted. Continue reading Our Favorite Quips from the Lego Batman Movie

When culture critics look back at the television programs that were written, produced, and released over the last 20 years, they will refer to them as the Golden Age of TV.  From long running comedies like Big Bang Theory and Arrested Development and the epic awesome dramas like The Sopranos, to the pop culture staples like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Game of Thrones, to the critically acclaimed Breaking Bad and Dexter—TV has been dominating our leisure time activities since 1997.

John Wick 3 Details Teased!

Collider has the full story.

We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world… I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Number Two, that I’d like to go back to on [chapter three] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York. So rather than massive set pieces, I’d like to show you cooler and more intricate ones… I think it would be a mistake budget wise and creatively to just go big and blow up a freeway. That’s not our gig. That’s a comic book or a Bond gig. We want to show you cool and intricate details. What are those little details in everyday life? Hopefully – we make people look at garbage collectors and cleaner vans and homeless people a little differently now.

and

And although we know some of Wick’s backstory from what’s been implied in the previous movies, Stahelski says more revelations will only come from action, not from some exposition dump:

“Yeah, definitely — but it’s about John revealing it. It’s not about you finding a hidden book or a secret map about who John Wick is. Anyone watching can start piecing it together. You know he’s had some serious training. Was it military? Ehh — he kind of looks military. Where’s he from? Well — he speaks all these languages. We’re giving you the pieces and I think it’s always good… Hopefully in five years, you and your buddies will talk about how ‘he’s this or he’s that.’ We’ll give you a couple more pieces and let you stitch it together.”
