The McU Has A Problem: It Needs More Hulk!

23 August 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Taika Waititi's upcoming Thor: Ragnarok debuts an entirely new version of the Hulk who speaks and interacts with other characters like never before, and it's awesome. This iteration of Hulk is a game-changer for the McU, and will have wide-ranging impacts on Phase 4, at least. Here at Lrm, we think more Hulk is always better... and it's time for Marvel to get on-board with this thinking!

Team-ups and crossovers have been a core staple of Marvel comics from the very beginning -- it's actually rare that a Marvel comic contains just a single hero these days (the films and TV series have embraced this premise big-time). However, there are several key Marvel characters who are ubiquitous across the comics, and comfortable appearing everywhere from street-level to cosmic to Astral to Quantum to Hell itself. Spider-Man, The Thing, and The Hulk are Marvel's true secret weapons; they're wildcards, they're unpredictable, »

Review: Bang! The Bert Berns Story Tells Musical History From a New Angle

25 April 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

In recent years, several documentaries have explored the mythical world of popular music in the 1960s, including Morgan Neville's Twenty Feet From Stardom (about backup singers) and Denny Tedesco's The Wrecking Crew (about session musicians). Now comes Bang: The Bert Berns Story, which is a bio-doc about Bert Berns, a composer and producer.    All three films share a common desire to shine a celebratory spotlight on extremely talented people who have never fully received their due. Bang shares another thing in common with The Wrecking Crew: both were made by the offspring of the people who are profiled. Brett Berns, son of Bert Berns, codirected Bang with Bob Sarles, and that's reflected in the amazing array of interview subjects.    Bang, narrated by musician...

Kim Kardashian Sparks Backlash Over Release of New Virgin Mary Kimoji

21 April 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sparks are flying over Kim Kardashian West's new Kimoji candle.

The 36-year-old reality star took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal a brand new addition to her Kimoji collection: a candle of herself as the Virgin Mary.

While many of Kardashian West's kimojis exist soley on her messaging app, the "Kim candle" is available in real, tangible, candle form -- and will ship in one week for the price of $18.

Though the mother of two touted her candle on social media, some of her fans weren't so receptive to her new merchandise, calling the candle sacrilegious, distasteful, disrespectful of Christian culture and appropriating the veladoras of Latinx culture.

Carson Kressley’s RuPaul’s Drag Race Blog: Why ‘This Show Isn’t Just About Lashes and Lipstick’

14 April 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

A version of this article originally appeared on

Spoiler Warning: Details about Friday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race are revealed below.

Oh chile! Another spicy episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race to digest. And it’s that time in season 9 when it’s getting a teensy bit hot in the kitchen and tempers are starting to flare. Basically, the gloves are coming off and the claws are coming out. Isn’t it delicious?

On the (high) heels of last week’s elimination of Kimora Blac — which, in my humble opinion was well-deserved — the remaining queens (or »

Spring Break to Continue Forever On Mysterious Streaming Platform

22 March 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What does a French billionaire want with James Franco?

The sun sets over these last and barren weeks of madness we call March. What remains of snowfall turns into slosh as students blink slowly into sobriety. “Spring Break, Spring Break, Spring Break forever,” an icy voice chants. But good news: that creepy voice just might have its demands met. A mysterious streaming platform called Blackpills has, per Deadline, now committed to distributing a scripted micro-episodic series based on Harmony Korine’s 2012 hyper-stylized meditation of life, love and spring break that starred James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.

The production company behind Spring Breakers, Fernando Sulichin and Chris Hanley’s Muse Productions (Buffalo ’66, Virgin Suicides), are more than thrilled. Hanley excitedly tells Deadline that the proposed micro-episode format is “the future of digital media.” Korine, on the other hand, has asserted his lack of interest in the project: busy, as he is, in »

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

I’ve said time and time again that despite its merits the biggest flaws in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV show has been its lack of fully developing characters from the Marvel Comic Book Universe. The show (which spiraled out from The Avengers movie) is ripe to explore and showcase some of the best characters that might just not be ready or capable of making an impact on the big screen. While some characters have found a way to appear (Deathlock,  Daisy Rumble Johnson, Absorbing Man, and recently Ghost Rider) a great majority of villains have either been created specifically for the show (and suddenly now appearing in the comics) or have just been throw away characters that have very little to zero ties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Comic Book Universe. »
