Warning – SPOILERS for AMC's The Walking Dead...

On last week’sThe Walking Dead, Eugene had some tough choices to make whether to stay loyal to Negan or to reveal that Dwight is the mole; Tara, Daryl, and Morgan decided to deviate from Rick and his allies’ plan to take down Negan and the Saviors; Rick actually managed to finally get Jadis and the Scavengers to join their fight against Negan. Unfortunately, when they rolled up on the Sanctuary, Rick’s plan was not in motion; instead, the walkers surrounding the place were gone and so were the snipers. It was bad, and Rick was understandably shaken.

On this week’s episode, 8.8 "How It's Gotta Be," it gets worse. It really does. Not only has Rick's plan gone south, but a beloved character is going to die. Since this is the mid-season finale, you know there's going to be pain, suffering, and death [...]

The Game Awards 2017: Next Project From ‘Dark Souls’ Developer FromSoftware Teased

Dark Souls Developer FromSoftware Game Tease

The next game from the developer of theDark Soulsseries andBloodborne,FromSoftware, was teased at The Game Awards 2017.

The teaser is a brief video. And when I say teaser I do very much mean it. It's only 20-something seconds long, and shows one thing. It's a disturbing thing, of that there is no doubt. But still, only one thing. That thing is then followed by a few words, which is of course enough to get folks speculating.

Head on below to check out the video [...]

"Everybody betrayed me! I'm fed up with this world!"

In 2003, an aspiring actor and filmmaker became a cultural phenomenon with one of the worst movies ever made —The Room, a torrid melodrama about a love triangle between a banker, his deceptive fiancée, and his conflicted best friend. The film was written, directed, and produced byTommy Wiseau, an enigmatic outsider with dyed-black hair and an impenetrable foreign accent who also stars as the lead, Johnny.

Hollywood's curiosity in the independent film was piqued when Wiseau erected a billboard to promote his six million dollar passion project, promising a drama on the level of Tennessee Williams'A Streetcar Named Desire. Now, the unbelievable true story behindThe Room— often referred to as "The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies" — is chronicled in a movie-about-a-movie directed byJames Franco, who also stars as Wiseau [...]

Yes, Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Star Trek’ Movie Is R-Rated

Star Trek Logo CBS

Oh, you didn't thinkQuentin Tarantinopitching an ideafor a newStar Trekmovie toJ.J. Abramsthat he might end up directing couldn't get any stranger? Sit with me for a moment, my friends. Here, I made you some nice cocoa. Marshmallows are there on the table if you like. Careful now, it's a bit hot.

Everything about this was unexpected, of course. But one of the things that made it especially surprising was the part about Tarantino possibly directing. Not only has he never made a big blockbuster type movie---he's only made eight movies total with a ninth on the way, and there's been whispers of him potentially retiring from filmmaking after his 10th---but each and every one of his films has been R-rated.Star Trekmovies, as you're likely aware, are not R-rated.

But never fear, Tarantino fans. As it turns out, evenStar Trekis R-rated when it comes from Quentin. In fact, it was one of his requirements [...]
