Soon, brothers and sisters—soon, Smash Brothers will return. The latest edition of Nintendo’s button-mashing mascot-crushing fun fest arrives on the 3Ds and the Wii U later this year. For years, the rumor mill has been churning with possible new additions to the lineup. We already know that Mega Man and Pac-Man are joining the Smash crew. But how deep would Nintendo dig into their back catalogue? Could Birdo finally be a playable character? Would Bubbles the Bubble Fish finally get her chance at a comeback? Whither the Tatangas of yesteryear?
Now, a possible leak appears to reveal at »

Here's Matthew Eng on where we are in the career of one of the great screen actresses...
“Holy shit, I love watching this woman act!” is what I immediately thought during Viola Davis’s doozy of a “big scene” in Get on Up, which nearly every review of Tate Taylor’s surprisingly strong James Brown biopic has been well-inclined to praise. As Brown’s aged, long-estranged mama, Davis—with the aid of terrific star Chadwick Boseman and some pretty expert makeup artists whose numbers Clint Eastwood should find immediately—manages to reinvigorate a set-up familiar from any number of tortured artist-biopics (i.e. absentee parent comes groveling years later to abandoned child-turned-superstar at the peak of his fame) with the same smart, electrifying clarity of character and tender yet tough-minded emotionalism that should be long-recognizable by now to anyone who has seen Doubt or Antwone Fisher or Solaris or Won’t Back Down, »

The creators of the TV series Gotham are doing something really intriguing with the villain Joker. Yesterday, we showed you a few screenshots from the pilot episode of the Batman inspired series that showed a comedian performing in a club for Fish Mooney. There was a lot of speculation that this could be the future Joker, and it might! But there are going to be several characters that will be introduced throughout the first season that might end up being the Joker as well.
According to Bleeding Cool, "every episode in the first season will introduce a character that might be a future Joker, each emphasising aspects of the character’s iconography, a card sharp, a flower seller, a clown, or just a guy with a very big grin."
I love how they are handling this series and character! This show is going to be so good! »

There’s the one night stand, and there’s the long-term relationship.
Both have their place in the modern world of dating, but can the former become the latter, the heat of the moment transforming into the ever-burning fire?
It’s a perennial question, one that introduces a host of others: does it matter who says “I love you” first? How long should a couple wait before moving in together? When should best friends get involved, and should it be with positive encouragement or by playing devil’s advocate? (And does it matter if the friends’ romantic lives carry their own problems?)
In the insightful, hilarious romantic comedy About Last Night– arriving just in time to become the latest Valentine’s Day movie classic — four Los Angeles singles get a thorough workout in the ups and downs of today’s dating world. On yet another night of playing wingman to »
