'The Flash' Reveals Reverse-Flash Image

Tom Cavanagh raises the stakes in this promo image.
Story by Matt Cummings
Although CW's The Flash is on a Spring hiatus, fans have been treated to news aplenty, inclduing a spinoff. But the first-season story of the Scarlet Speedster isn't quite done, as fans await the final episodes, which will most likely deal with Barry Allen’s pursuit of time travel technology. As you know, this is the only way that his mother - who was killed in the opening episode - might be rescued. Standing in the way of that is Flash's nemesis Reverse-Flash, played by Tom Cavanagh, who also plays Barry's mentor Dr. Harrison Wells.

This relationship is about to get a severe test, as recent trailers show that Reverse Flash announces his appearance to none other than his own Star Labs staff. How this will affect Allen and TeamFlash is yet to be determined, but today we took one step closer to seeing the epic battle play out. CW has released a nearly full-body image of Reverse Flash that…

5 Big Questions We Have About Reverse Flash

The release of Reverse Flash's costume has us asking tough questions.

Story by Matt Cummings

With the first quality image arriving on Friday of Tom Cavanagh as The Reverse Flash, reaction has been generally positive about the general direction which the show is headed. But questions have lingered all season about the motives of Reverse Flash/Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), all of which have bubbled back to the surface. With a lack of answers from CW, we dare to ask the 5 big questions about Reverse Flash and his future role.

1. Why is Wells helping Barry Allen?
For reasons unbeknownst to us, the idea of helping the one person who is your mortal enemy to improve seems like a frankly idiotic plan. And yet, that is exactly what Wells and his team at Star Labs has been doing for most of Season 1. With Barry continuing to improve, why is Wells pushing his young protege only to fight him later. Is he hoping for a real fight this time? It's a question that only the studio …

Movie Review: Run All Night

Run All Night doesn't do much new, but it tells its story in the most effective manner possible.
Story by Matt Cummings
If there's one thing we recently love about Actor Liam Neeson, it's the one thing we also hate. Having re-established his career with the Taken series, Neeson has become the go-to guy for one-note action vehicles, starring in Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones, and many others. And therein lies the problem: too many of the same movies for too long has left audiences with Neeson Malaise, as if we have collectively recognized the need for him to move on to something else. Fortunately, Run All Night proves he still works in these vehicles, even if the pieces haven't changed much.

The aging assassin Jimmy Conlon (Neeson) has lived a life of deadly confrontations, amassing a body count that's made him a wanted man in New York City. But Detective Harding (Vincent D'Onofrio) can't seem to pin the litany of dead bodies on Conlon, thanks …

Kevin Smith Hints at Mallrats Sequel

Director possibly heading back to the food court.
By Brandon Wolfe
Kevin Smith’s self-proclaimed “retirement” isn’t proving any more final than showbiz retirements ever do (Hackman and Connery notwithstanding). The polarizing director has a full dance card for the near future, as he plans to follow up his oddball Tusk by shooting the long-delayed Clerks III in May, his even-longer-delayed hockey miniseries Hit Somebody in the fall before going to work on his next two Canadian-themed, weed-fueled horror experiments, Moose Jaws (which is exactly what it sounds like) and Anti-Claus, early next year. But after he’s done with all of that, Smith dropped an intriguing hint on his Facebook page for what lies ahead.


It sounds like Smith is going to make a return trip to the mall for another installment of Mallrats, his critically savaged 1995 sophomoric sophomore effort. That film, which chronicled a day in the lives of Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee in the role that put him on the map) and T.S. Qui…

Andy Samberg To Host 2015 Emmy Awards Show

Find Out The 'Who' and 'Where'

Story by David Clark

Emmy Award winner Andy Samberg has been selected to host the 2015 Emmy Awards show at the Nokia Theatre (Los Angeles) in September. The national broadcast will be airing live on Fox. An interesting decision given that it will be in direct competition with the ever popular National Football League’s Sunday night game. If aired two weeks earlier, the awards show would not have had such stiff competition.

Programming aside, for the people at home who enjoy watching celebrities win trophies, this year's show should be entertaining. Samberg should be a solid selection to take the show back to the heights reached when hosted by individuals like Conan O’Brien and Neil Patrick Harris. A host is integral to maintaining the attention of the audience, and to command the ratings a network hopes to receive when backing this type of an event. Being able to stand center-stage and carry the attention of an audience is n…

Naked Gun Reboot On It's Way

If you've seen Naked Gun - or The Naked Gun: From The Files Of Police Squad! to give its full title - you'll know that it's a comedic masterpiece that springboards off astonishing levels of silliness and random spoofery. Leslie Nielsen's Frank Drebin is a loveable buffoon for the ages, even when he's discussing his dicky prostrate. Do not, however, expect the Ed Helms-starring reboot to adopt exactly the same tack.

According to Naked Gun director/co-writer David Zucker, talking up Airplane!'s screening at Nashville's Wild West Comedy Festival, the new version will not attempt to hit the same spoofy sweet spot as the Zuckers and Jim Abrahams' 1988 comedy. "It won’t be like the Naked Gun that I did," Zucker revealed. "It may be good, but it won’t be that kind of movie. They’re going to use the title. They asked me if I wanted to produce. They’re nice people, but they don’t want to do that style of spoof that I do."

So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!
