15 1990s Toys You Might Not Remember

12 November 2014 10:14 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

During the 1980s I played with and destroyed a lot of my favorite toys. It was during the '90s where I started to take better care of my toys, and I started collecting them. I still have a bunch of action figures from that era that are still in the original packaging. One of my favorite action figure lines from this era was Todd McFalane's Spawn. Those things were freakin' awesome! That's also the time I started collecting the twelve inch G.I. Joe figures. I loved going to the various toys stores to collect those things. A lot of those stores don't even exist anymore. There are a few toys, though, from the '90s that completely slipped my mind, until I was going through some boxes and came across some that sparked some fun memories.

Counting down the 10 darkest holiday movies, in honor of 'The Santa Clause'

11 November 2014 10:33 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Santa Clause is 20 years old today—and while the series spawned a trilogy of family-friendly holiday films, we can't forget the franchise's dark origins. Tim Allen's Scott Calvin becomes Santa Claus by accidentally causing the original St. Nick to fall to his doom. Sure, the film pushes a "seeing is believing" message and includes plenty of warm and fuzzy holiday cheer—but it still starts off with the death of Santa Claus. The Santa Clause isn't the only movie to put a dark spin on the holiday season; there's a long and storied cinematic history of strange, bleak, »

5 Movies With Gaping Plot Holes

7 November 2014 11:35 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Prepare to have your hearts broken -- some of our favorite movies have plot holes that just can't be explained.

I Am Legend

In the post-apocalyptic thriller I Am Legend, Anna drives to Manhattan from Philadelphia -- in a car -- to essentially ruin Will Smith's life. But wait a minute – how did she even drive to Manhattan in the first place? All the bridges and tunnels to the city were destroyed at the beginning to prevent infection from spreading. Did she swim there and hot wire it? But then how did she drive off the island at the end?

Home Alone

Home Alone cleverly closed a potential plot hole in the beginning of the film by explaining the reason the McCallisters can't contact Kevin is because the phones are down – and when they called the police, Kevin was too afraid to answer the door. Great! But then, how does he order that "lovely cheese pizza?"
