Guilty pleasures: a phrase that deserves to die

1 February 2016 7:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Who came up with the idea that we're supposed to feel guilty about the films, TV shows and music that we like?

Every now and then, I emerge from the Den Of Geek shed and take a mooch around other websites and publications. I tend to like them a lot. There’s nothing to keep us and me on our toes more than seeing the wonderful work being done around the internet. Because there is lots of it.

There’s also, though, a breed of article I’m decreasingly keen on. Anything that starts with ‘x reasons why this will be that’, or ‘why so and so will suck’. The content of said articles may be great, but the whole approach tends to put me off.

Yet there’s nothing on guilty pleasures, a phrase that, to my mind, seems invented by playground bullies to try and »

The Top 16 Sports Movie Villains of All Time

26 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

It’s my opinion that Clubber Lang is easily one of the best if not the best sports movie villain of all time. And it got me thinking. Have there been any sports villain lists? Yeah, there have. There have actually been plenty. But I will admit this. I was one of the first. I wrote this back in 2008 and it still holds up today. Plus I think many lists still forget some key villains that I’ve included. And speaking of Rocky movies, was Apollo really a villain in Rocky? He was more of a villain in Rocky II. Definitely

Video: 10 Life Lessons We Can Learn from Rocky Balboa

6 January 2016 3:25 PM, PST | | See recent news »

On Jan. 10, we'll find out if Sylvester Stallone takes home a Golden Globe for his role in the newest Rocky movie. Of course, Stallone's turn in the newest installment in the franchise is very different from all his previous rounds as the beloved character. It got him nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Movie, not best Best Actor, and it's not a Rocky movie, exactly: It's a Creed movie, and ostensibly the beginning of a new series of boxing epics. So yes, in the time since the first Rocky came out - 40 years ago this November - Rocky Balboa has had quite the journey, »

Ryan Coogler on ‘Creed,’ Filmmaking as Journalism and the Need for Female Voices (Q&A)

5 January 2016 2:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With “Creed” passing $100 million at the domestic box office, it’s safe to say filmmaker Ryan Coogler is off to the races. He had already established a vital voice with 2013’s “Fruitvale Station,” and now, as he wades into the shark-filled waters of a Hollywood career, holding onto that voice is more important than ever.

But he knows that. He’s incredibly talented, yes, but incredibly sharp when it comes to navigating this business. As a deep-dive supplement to our sidebar interview with the filmmaker this week, here’s a lengthy Q&A with Coogler addressing everything from his personal connections to the “Rocky” franchise, to the importance of diversity in the film business, to when it felt right to needle-drop what might be the most iconic film music ever.


The film is doing well. Congratulations!

Yeah. I’m happy people like it. That’s always nice, man. When you work so hard on something, »
