Fans had high hopes for Aquaman’s story in Justice League, but most of it wound up on the cutting room floor. At least, that’s the impression given by the veritable wealth of underwater shots, Momoa-centric scenes, and hints at the larger DC mythology of Atlantis in the movie’s marketing. Almost all of which, sadly, ended up being tossed aside – including entire performances from acclaimed actors now appearing only in the solo Aquaman movie. But it’s the rich mythology of Atlantis and Arthur Curry’s parents that takes the biggest hit.
Even without diving into specifics (forgive the pun) the theatrical cut clearly makes less of a role ...

Not the Dursleys, Harry’s awful aunt, uncle, and cousin; while there is plenty to know about them (and plenty of fan theories about why exactly they were so terrible), they aren’t Harry’s real family. Not the Blacks, either. Although those pure-blood dark wizards could be considered family thanks to his relationship with his Godfather Sirius Black, these aren’t Harry’s real family either.

In the book series (and the film adaptations), Harry learns quite a bit about his own parents, Lily ...

To be fair, the majority of the negative reviews honed ...

Season 2 of Stranger Things brought all kinds of changes to the show, but perhaps none has been as divisive as the introduction of new character Kali, played by Linnea Berthelsen. In ‘Chapter Seven: The Lost Sister,’ while the rest of the denizens of the town of Hawkins were off figuring out how to defeat the Demogorgons, Eleven took a side trip to locate the girl from her mother Terry’s memories.
The result was a bottle episode that deviated from the main storyline but allowed the series to experiment a little bit. Kali, AKA Eight, was once imprisoned at Hawkins Laboratory with Eleven, and as a result, she developed the unique ability to create illusions in people’s minds. However, unlike Eleven and ...

Justice League‘s international box office results are in. Warner Bros. launched their unofficially titled DC Extended Universe with Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 – a follow-up to his Superman origin story, Man of Steel – and the studio continued expanding the newly-formed shared universe with the filmmaker’s Justice League, which finally hit theaters worldwide this weekend.
