What you’ll need for Deadpool before you see it

What you’ll need for Deadpool before you see it

If you're about to watch the 2016 film Deadpool, you're going to need to know a few things. First, this is the first time our hero Wade Winston Wilson will grace the silver screen with an accurate portrayal of his life force. Because of this, you're going to need to bring some earmuffs for your children. Or better yet, don't bring your children at all! This is a rated-R movie, and most certainly not something you're going to want to bend the rules on for your 5-year-old daughter or son who promises they'll never repeat any of the bad words they hear.

Torrents Time gets cease-and-desist letter from anti-piracy group

Just earlier today I was writing about an interesting new way to stream perfectly legal content. Torrents Time is a new plug-in that will allow you to take any (legal and not pirated) torrent, and stream it straight to your browser. That's pretty cool, right? Well, it seems that an anti-piracy group has taken offense to the new startup, and issued a cease-and-desist letter to the founders of Torrents Time.

Most movies will see two, maybe three different releases in their lifetime. You'll have the original theatrical, then perhaps an “extended edition” and maybe even a “director's cut.” Then you have the three original Star Wars movies, each of which has seen at least 38 slightly different releases.

It's 2016, so we can't just pretend like torrenting isn't a thing anymore. We also still can't pretend that it's completely legal to pirate movies and TV shows. So consider this your warning that if you choose to engage in any of the activities listed below, that the consequences are your own.

New X-Men, Captain America trailers kick off at Super Bowl

New X-Men, Captain America trailers kick off at Super Bowl

While the Super Bowl is always a time for football fans to root for their favorite teams, matches aren't the only battles going on in the stadium. It has also been an opportunity to fight for people's attention, affection, and even money. Like these trailers for two movies, for example. While both have their roots in Marvel's hallways, only one is technically and legally Marvel's baby. But only one really offers us something new to drool upon. Presenting the Super Bowl's unveiling of the new trailers for X-Men: Apocalypse and Marvel's Captain America: Civil War.

The curious case of the Star Wars family portrait

The curious case of the Star Wars family portrait

What you're about to see is a family portrait that includes Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and a third family member. We will not tell you who the third member of the family is here, for that would be a spoiler for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We know that basically every person in the world that wanted to see The Force Awakens has already seen it, but we're still not going to take any chances. Maybe 30 years down the line when The Simpsons have already done so.

Netflix will never release weekly shows, here’s why

Netflix will never release weekly shows, here’s why

Since I cut my cable back in 2008, I haven't really kept up with a lot of current shows. Instead, I've found that I prefer waiting until the whole thing is finished before jumping on board. Sure, I'm not in the loop with a lot of current shows, but I have a bad habit of forgetting some shows exist for a couple of years, while waiting for the next season. Plus, this way I get to binge-watch everything at once.

Ghostbusters 2016 photos shared en masse
