Review: DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games

25 May 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

What a great time to be a grandparent (or so I’m told). There are now plenty of books, games, clothing, and video to encourage girls to be strong and independent. DC Comics offers up their Super Hero Girls line and this week they have released their second animated feature, DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games, a 77-minute romp.

Writer Shea Fontana improves on the first offering with a story set at the Intergalactic Games where Earth’s powered women take on the vile challengers from Korugar Academy. To prepare for the competition Academy teacher Doc Magnus (Phil Lamarr) is building battlebots and supervising Batgirl (Mae Whitman) and Bumblebee (Teala Dunn) as they build their own. Principal Waller (Yvette Nicole Brown) is not amused nor is she happy that Magnus’ bots seem to have free will but were not programmed with any morality, a theme that plays out across the 77-minute fast-paced story. »

In anticipation for awards season, “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” screened for voters and media on Thursday evening as part of a For Your Consideration event at Netflix’s FYSee Space in Beverly Hills.

Seventeen years since its initial premiere, “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life” welcomed audiences back to the quirky town of Stars Hollow for more stories and shenanigans, with nearly the entire original cast, including Graham.

The mini-series, which premiered on Netflix in November 2016, picks up 10 years after the events of the series finale. According to Graham, returning as Lorelai Gilmore felt more organic than she anticipated.

We're Over the Term "Friendship Goals," but Miles Heizer and Mae Whitman Are Still It

22 April 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

If you watched Parenthood back in the day, then you're probably already a fan of Miles Heizer, but if you're only just starting to obsess over the talented actor, it's probably because you watched him in Netflix's 13 Reasons Why. While we love the fact that he hangs out with his 13 Reasons Why costars in real life - and has a particularly special bond with Brandon Flynn (who plays Justin Foley) - he's also still tight with someone in particular from Parenthood: Mae Whitman. You probably know Mae from her various acting roles from when she was younger, in particular a guest appearance on Friends and her heartbreaking role in Hope Floats alongside Sandra Bullock. Miles and Mae are best friends and roommates, and they often document their hilarious adventures and bond on social media. While some celebrity BFFs are all about staging the most glamorous photos and only sharing »

Typically, you’d expect there to be a clear and open line of communication with a best friend or significant other, but people always maintain a certain degree of privacy — which is healthy, as long as privacy doesn’t develop into secrecy. That’s at the heart of Kasra Farahani’s “Tilt,” debuting at this month’s Tribeca Film Festival as part of their ambitious Midnight section.

How well do you really know someone? “Tilt” has some ideas, and most of them are shocking indeed.
