"Cats" Review: A Bad Musical Adapted Into a Worse Movie

[OP-ED] The Disturbing Implications of the “Cats” Post-Release Patch

While Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is dominating the headlines as it posts an opening box-office number of $195 million, Cats is drawing everyone’s attention and not for good reasons either.

`Universal Drops Terrifying Trailer for New Horror Flick, "Cats"

Universal Pictures Should Probably Delay the Release of “Cats” [OPINION]

The release of Cats so far been handled so poorly by Universal that it almost seems intentional.

A recent book covering the latest plots in the storyline of Magic: The Gathering entitled “War of the Spark: Forsaken” has come under scrutiny by gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer Magic players (among many others) for its content.

Don’t Blame ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’s’ Box-Office On This Cast

Terminator: Dark Fate will go down as one of the biggest flops of 2019 and will likely cost the studio over 100 million dollars in losses. Now it would be easy to point out and shout from the rooftops that this somehow tied to there being three female leads in the cast, but that would be […]

Opinion: Pioneer Bans Will Be Fierce – “Magic: The Gathering”

Magic: The Gathering has very recently been shaken up with the addition of a new format called Pioneer. The format is less than a month old and currently contains only five banned cards (the original allied fetchlands, for those looking for those bans). Aside from those initial bans, the format contains all cards from expansion […]

"Sorin, Lord of Innistrad" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

Opinion: Finding My Way Through “Magic: The Gathering: Arena”

Or, “A Love Letter to Magic Esports”. A couple of months ago, sometime before I was hired by Bleeding Cool, I never would have guessed that I’d be playing Magic: The Gathering: Arena. I was vehemently opposed to Magic: The Gathering Online and felt very strongly about my stance. How could I even think about paying for digital cards when […]
