  • Family Feud has played host to a cavalcade of colorful characters. But what would the show look like if was able to have fictional characters on its stage? We find out when we pit Charles Addams' Addams Family up against Jane Austen's Dashwood clan from Sense & Sensibility!

  • This Independence Day, we’re celebrating historical fiction with a female focus—a perfect match up to follow the success of Wonder Woman this summer, and to celebrate the 4th of July with fireworks and a good book. There has been plenty of historical fiction written about the American Revolution, of course. As one of the most significant events in US history, it’s not surprising that this tale has been told time and time again. In 2017, we’re shifting our focus away from the men normally pictured in Revolution literature and toward the often untold stories of the women that surrounded them. From camp followers to slaves, wives to rebels, these novels are the perfect way to celebrate a Feminist Fourth - and then enjoy the BBQs with a new perspective on what we are celebrating.

  • We all know Edgar Wright loves comics. Beyond his delightfully kinetic adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs the World and his Ant-Man film that will never be (though the finished flick has enough Wright-ian touches that we can get a pretty good idea of where he was going), Wright’s stylistic jump cut montages, fluid action sequences and general playfulness make him the man we most want to see bring comics to the big screen. But not just any comics. Only those with the Wright stuff.

  • Twenty years ago, a brand new book made its way into the world, about a boy with a lightning bolt scar who lived under the stairs, until he got a letter that granted him entrance to a hidden school for witchcraft and wizardry. Since the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry, his friends, and his magical world have become such an integral part of pop culture that it’s hard to remember a time when words like Patronus and Hogwarts weren’t part of the vernacular.

  • Forgiveness Day falls on a Monday (June 26) this year. Have you been putting off a long-due apology? Have a hatchet that needs to be buried? Take some direction from the pop culture apologizers below. If you’re due an apology, we can’t guarantee you’ll get it, but immersing yourself in a good apology scene can offer a small bit of catharsis!
