Critical Hit: 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

Judging from the box office receipts, you've almost certainly seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Maybe twice, so you know how good it is.  One of the things that made it such a huge success was that it re-thought Captain America fro the ground up and shaped it into an entirely new genre for the Marvel cinematic universe.  Namely, a political thriller. In doing so, they took the blandest of the Avengers and made him beloved.  We have another episode of Critical Hit, where we discuss those things and more.

Netflix Double Feature: Cabin in the Woods & This is the End

So grab your popcorn, a snuggly blanket, a group of friends, and settle down for an evening of comedy horror. If you're used to snagging movies through satellite pay-per-view or Amazon, here's one more tip: there are coupons to stream movies for free these days.

Hilariously Bad 'Need For Speed' Trailer Drives On To The Internet

Hollywood trends often result in some bizarre results as to what does and does not get made.  For example, a Halo movie was almost produced, but died in development hell. Now, we're getting a Need For Speed movie, based on a video game franchise that you've probably never even heard of.  Why?  Because the Fast & Furious series is huge right now, and Hollywood filmmakers realized that they could make a Fast & Furious clone with the excuse of calling it an adaptation.  Now, this is the result:

More 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Rumors Warp Through The Internet

Rumors, rumors, rumors.  Sometimes I feel like that's all we write about.  It gets a little tiring, doesn't it?  Especially when the best ones are those which inevitably turn out to be false.  Didn't it sound awesome when Josh Brolin was in consideration to play Batman?  Good times.  Here's yet another round of the things, and it certainly won't be the last.  These are for Star Wars: Episode VII , and they include a possible title and some recurring elements we'll see.
