Have you been left bamboozled by The Flash’s season 2 finale? Let us try and help with that. Spoilers...

As you'd expect, this article contains spoilers for The Flash's season 2 finale. 

The Race Of His Life has been and gone, leaving us rather shocked and overflowing with questions (well, we have four questions... but that sounds a lot less dramatic, doesn’t it?). For a while, The Flash’s season 2 swansong felt like a fairly normal finale: Zoom was dispatched into The Speed Force, Barry and Iris snogged and everyone was heading back to their respective universes. Job done.

But then That Big Thing happened at the end, majorly messing up the entire history of the show and resulting in a fair bit of head scratching. We’ll get to that bit in due course, but first let’s tackle the other three questions...

The Flickering Myth team reacts…

With a flood of movie news coming in (Just Cause, Centipede and Missile Command and Splinter Cell to name but a few), it’s easy to forget we got our first look at Assassin’s Creed yesterday [watch it here]. The movie is set for release in December and sees Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Apocalypse) star as Aguilar alongside Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons and Brenden Gleeson.

But what did the Flickering Myth staff make of it?

Tony Black: Really really good. Gets the weirdness inherent in the games, looks gorgeous, seems to understand the flow of the series, and importantly it gives just the right amount away without spoiling anything of import. Give it me now!

Eddy Gardiner: Visually, it looks perfect. Doesn’t give much away, »

Michael Fassbender Razes Bad Guys in 'Assassin's Creed' Trailer

12 May 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Michael Fassbender wreaks havoc in the first trailer for Assassin's Creed, the new movie based on the video game franchise of the same name.

The clip — which premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday — stars Fassbender as Callum Lynch, a career criminal whose execution is faked so that he can be used by the nefarious Abstergo Industries. Led by Marion Cotillard's character, Sophia Rikkin, the group straps Lynch to a machine called the Animus, which sends him back in time so that they can mine the memories of his assassin ancestor, »

Are WWE Telling The Best Story Of 2016 Right Now? | WWE Raw 05/09/16 Review …in about 4 minutes

10 May 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

The 05/09/16 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw reviewed in about 4 minutes – featuring a big match up between The Roman Empire (aka The Family) and The Bullet Club (aka The Club), Big Cass gets a main event match, yet another Nxt star debuts and are WWE telling the best story of 2016 right now?

Chris Jericho Highlight Reel

Last week, the fans lost one of their favourite onscreen talents: Dean Ambrose’s potted plant Mitch. Chris Jericho, being one sick individual, paraded the broken remains of everyone’s most beloved talk show decoration right in the middle of the ring to open the show. I mean, WWE has done some bad taste angles in the past – the whole Katie Vick mess, Big Boss Man stealing Big Show’s dad’s coffin – but this one… »

10 New Directions For WWE Champion Roman Reigns

4 April 2016 2:51 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.Com

Roman Reigns is WWE Champion, winning a good main event over Triple H at WrestleMania 32. Far from being a “disaster” for The Big Dog, the crowd actually played to his advantage. Yes, the boos were clear, but it all contributed to a mass of noise that made Reigns feel like a big deal.

The question now, is where do WWE go from here?

Even with the benefit of going over Triple H cleanly in a WrestleMania main event, Roman Reigns still has problems to overcome. The last few months of woeful creative have set him back, and the worst case scenario is that the crowd loses interest completely. He’ll be fine as long as he’s getting the old Cena reactions, with the past decade proving that there’s money in that role. But it isn’t so simple as Reigns just doing his best, he’s »

James Gunn Shares A Funny Scene Cut From Guardians Of The Galaxy: "Groot's Last Supper"

31 March 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As you can see above, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 director James Gunn has shared a very cool frame that was cut from the first installment featuring Groot, Rocket, and Drax as they recreate Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper, which has been adequately renamed "Groot's Last Supper." According to Gunn, this scene would've taken place at the end of the sequence where Drax & Rocket are getting drunk together and cheering on the F'saki chasing the Orloni. It was ultimately cut from the film due to pacing and never finished, however, this one frame was recently completed by the artists over at Framestore and gifted to Gunn. Thanks @Framestore for this gift - Groot's Last Supper (from a scene cut from #GotG Vol. 1). pic.twitter.com/SQh3iVknmY — James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 31, 2016 From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, »

Chris Pratt Pilots the Milano in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Set Video

31 March 2016 2:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Chris Pratt revealed that he is teaming up with Omaze for a new charitable initiative where one lucky fan will get to win a trip to the set in Atlanta. Fans who donate $10 or more will be eligible to win the grand prize of becoming an honorary Guardian of the Galaxy and getting to hang out with Chris Pratt while he shoots some very important scenes. Earlier this week, the actor took to his Instagram page to promote this endeavor, while posting a new sneak peek featuring himself piloting his ship, the Milano.

Unfortunately, we don't get to hear any dialogue in this scene, but it's clear that Star-Lord is having some difficulties keeping the ship under control. We aren't sure if the Milano has come under attack in this scene, but it certainly seems possible. It's also worth noting that »

Power and Resistance: Andrzej Żuławski’s "On the Silver Globe"

28 March 2016 3:42 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

“There is in every one of us, even those who seem to be most moderate, a type of desire that is terrible, wild, and lawless.”—The Republic, Book IX 572bWhat’s the best way to describe the mania of an Andrzej Żuławski film? William Grimes, eulogizing Żuławski for The New York Times chose “emotionally savage.” J. Hoberman used “hyperkinetic,” “frenzied,” and “‘awful’ in its root sense of inspiring dread. Daniel Bird, writing about the most recent Lincoln Center screenings in New York, chose “deeply disturbing.” These descriptors make perfect sense after experiencing a Żuławski film, but I’ve never been able to sell his films to a newcomer this way. How could I? They’re much too primal for adjectives in our delicate English language, crafted to communicate Enlightenment-era ideas in a pleasing series of vibrations. The intensity of this director’s films could only be described in some sort of ancient Lovecraftian squelching, »

SHOCKing Sonnets: The Last Supper in Herzog’s Nosferatu

15 March 2016 6:54 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Our resident poet Nigel Parkin gives us some SHOCKing sonnets and horrifying haiku’s. It’s funny – death compels us to pursue the pleasures we might otherwise deny. We’ve opened bottles of long-cellared wine And crowned our heads with bacchanalian wreaths And as we sit and watch the rats consume All that we once held dear…
