Going ‘Catatonic’ in VR’s horror underbelly

Going ‘Catatonic’ in VR’s horror underbelly

It’s no secret that I love horror movies, the reasons for which are both numerous and irrelevant. I’ve seen hundreds of movies in the genre over the years, most of them cheesy with healthy half and one-star ratings on Netflix. It’s not that I like crappy movies; rather, the genre suffers from one big problem: true fear is very hard to impart through traditional film. That’s where virtual reality comes in.

That's in just five days and in North America alone, leaving hope for 10 digit numbers by the end of its run.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens breaks records over the weekend

By now it shouldn't probably come as a surprise. Stars Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh chapter, formally episode, of one of history's greatest sagas, has broken box office records over the weekend since it premiered.

Independence Day: Resurgence trailer sows seeds of hopelessness

Independence Day: Resurgence trailer sows seeds of hopelessness

The first trailer for Independence Day 2, a.k.a. Independence Day: Resurgence, which unexpectedly landed in the middle of a Sunday afternoon football game, is depressing. And no, that's not because of Will Smith's absence. Many of the original ensemble has once again been gathered by director Roland Emmirch, only perhaps to be killed off (or not) this time around. It's because the aliens are back, and they're back with a vengeance. Not to mention a more epic force. The trailer naturally paints a dark and depressing scenario where now you really get to question whether the Earth and its inhabitants survive this second bout.

Netflix’s star-studded Christmas original is a giant flop

Netflix, an ever-growing thorn in the television industry's side, has long basked in praise for its award-winning original shows.

Studios panicked. The success of Beasts served only to highlight Netflix's seemingly assured theatrical domination. Then, just as the ball started rolling, A Very Murray Christmas happened.

Wonder Woman sets her foot down in latest Bats v Supes clip

Wonder Woman sets her foot down in latest Bats v Supes clip

There's a (probably contentious) quote that advises to never send a man to do a woman's job. And based on the latest Batman v Superman full-length trailer, it indeed takes a woman's touch to get the two superheroes to stop trying to kill each other. A Wonder Woman, that is. In this latest Dawn of Justice clip drop, a lot of the focus is, of course, lavished on the two alpha males butting heads, both in costume and in plain clothes. That is until Wonder Woman steps in to make them focus on a common foe instead.
