Sling TV really wants to be your favorite cord-cutting service. It's spent the last couple of years getting itself on not just Roku, but FireTV and Apple TV (4th generation) for $20 a month with no contract, which is a pretty incredible feat in this Comcast, Time warner, Optimum world. The Meridian, Colorado-based company has been pushing interesting promotions all month long in celebration of SlingTV's birthday month. What better way to "pull a hobbit" and give gifts for your b-day than to hook geeks up with content.
Last weekend, Sling TV gave their Blue and Orange users free access to HBO's online content library just long enough for them to take in new series like Big Little Lies and Crashing. This weekend, Sling TV is opening up the Internet tubes to allow their subscribers unlimited access to STARZ, the premium cable network that brought us the smash hit time-traveling period drama, Outlander, based on the novels by author Diana Gabaldon. STARZ is also responsible for Black Sails, a period pirate drama for those looking for a bit more substance than the swashbucklers in Disney's high-seas franchise [...]

The DCEU universe is full of nods and Easter eggs that give us an idea of just how expansive the shared universe is. We saw Jason Todd's Robin Suit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which leads us to believe that Batman has been around long enough to have at least two heroes fight by his side.
Before Todd, there was Dick Grayson, who was the first Robin. While his character has not been acknowledge as of yet, it looks like there will be a movie about this character, and The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay could be who makes it. More on the story below. [...]

The success of Deadpool proved that R-rated comic book movies could work. So in light of its success, Fox is following it up with Logan and a Deadpool sequel. The former is set to hit theaters next week, while the latter is still in the early stages of writing.
But one film Ryan Reynolds would very much like to see happen is X-Force. The actor has spoken about his interest in bringing the title to the big screen in the past. Now it's being reported that Joe Carnahan is writing the script, so it looks like we are that much closer to it being a reality. More on the story below. [...]

Two weeks ago on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the legends needed to save George Washington and the outcome of the Revolutionary War, because evil Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and the Legion of Doom - Damian Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, and Eobard Thawne (Neal McDonough, John Barrowman, Matt Letscher) caused an aberration to grab the piece of the Spear of Destiny. Washington was scheduled to hang as a traitor, but Mick, Nate, and Amaya (Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers) saved the day. Sarah (Caity Lotz) almost died when she was shot and Rip choked her, and the ship was offline. Stein (Victor Garber) tried to save her, as Jax (Franz Drameh) tried to defend the ship and the piece of Spear. Sarah was saved, but the spear was taken. Nate and Amaya became more than just friends.

Directed by Michael Uppendahl
Created by Noah Hawley & Stan Lee
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
Air date: February 22nd, 2017
Last week on FX’s newest great series Legion, David Haller (Dan Stevens) had “memory work” done to investigate his childhood and help remember where and when his powers started. He is beginning to settle into his new life at Summerland with his “hands off” girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller), psychic “memory artist” Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris) and memories of his dead best friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza). He is still haunted by demons from his past, like the Devil with Yellow Eyes, and threats to his future, like the mysterious The Eye (Mackenzie Gray) who has his sister (Katie Aselton). Despite all the complexities of David’s world and the eccentric characters, the star of this series is the style and substance of the world created by Noah Hawley and director Michael Uppendahl. Legion does not at all feel like your typical Marvel product, or any other superhero show on television. It is a mind melting explosion of originality, one of the freshest feeling new shows of 2017 thus far.

Whether it's Rosemary’s Baby, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, or Videodrome, the best horror films act as subversive social commentaries, dealing with humanity's fears on a subconscious level and offering a kind of communal catharsis.
In his 1981 non-fiction book, Danse Macabre, author Stephen King states that the horror genre can “serve as an extraordinarily accurate barometer of those things which trouble the night-thoughts of a whole society.” George A. Romero's landmark 1968 film, Night of the Living Dead, for example, was rife with racial commentary during the height of the Civil Rights Movement [...]

One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in March 2017 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles. [...]
