Here we go again. Another Time’s Up / #MeToo column for another film in which filmmakers left T.J. Miller in the cast. The major problem that I had with Deadpool 2 goes down to one thing: this film served as the perfect opportunity to recast T.J. Miller’s role of Weasel with the Deadpool brand of humor following allegations of assault and abuse. Given the news stories that broke in December about allegations of sexual assault…"Time’s Up: My Major Problem with Deadpool 2"

This isn’t a surprise when one considers the source material is essentially a love letter to so many of…"Ready Player One: Visually Pleasing With Flaws"
The teaser trailer was unveiled during the Comic Con panel for Ready Player One. Directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay written by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline and based on Cline’s novel of the same name, Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, and T.
