Five Bullies in Movies You Actually Kind of Liked

It’s hard to fathom but there are bullies in movies that you might have liked. I know, weird right? But if you really look back at a lot of movies you can at least stop and think that without the bullies the movies would have been kind of dull. So yes, bullies aren’t a good thing. In fact they’re one of the last things that society can agree upon when it comes to the natural order of things. But in movies they’re at least interesting enough because they add a certain dynamic to the film that needs to be dealt

Riverdale Boss Explains That Black Hood Reveal, Revived 'Love Triangle'

Riverdale Boss Explains That Black Hood Reveal, Revived 'Love Triangle'
Warning: This post contains spoilers from Wednesday’s Riverdale fall finale.

The Black Hood killer has finally been unmasked… but is the mystery really solved?

Riverdale‘s fall finale revealed the man underneath the hood: school janitor Mr. Svenson, who was shot dead by Sheriff Keller after Archie and Betty cornered him. Betty theorized that Svenson was trying to atone for his own past mistakes — he identified the wrong man in his family’s murder, inadvertently getting an innocent person killed — by cleansing Riverdale of all its sinners. But if that’s really the end of the Black Hood story,

Riverdale Recap: Joy to the World! The Black Hood Killer Is Unmasked!

Need to catch up? Check out our previous Riverdale recap here.

All I wanted for Christmas was to find out who Riverdale‘s Black Hood killer is… and you know, kids, sometimes wishes do come true.

It’s Christmas time in Riverdale, and Kevin is having a Secret Santa party for the gang… which gets awkward fast, since Archie and Jughead are still freshly broken up with Veronica and Betty. (Ronnie gets a gift certificate for a couples’ massage — gee, thanks.) But Betty’s a little distracted, anyway, by bad dreams of the Black Hood wearing a Santa suit and

Great Last Words of Dying Film Characters

The last words of a dying film character have to be great. They can’t just be some catchphrase that would indicate that they might be back at some point. They can’t just say goodbye and be done with it. There has to be some hook that sends them off on their final journey and thus concludes their part in the film. The great ones definitely have to have a final, parting word that will endure long after their memory is gone. The scene featured above from Saving Private Ryan is one such scene in which Captain Miller tells the private

‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ Review: Muscles From Brussels Is Strong In Satire

When the pilot for Jean-Claude Van Johnson first popped up on Amazon in August of last year, I have to admit I liked the Dave Callaham-created project, but I really didn't think it could work as a series. Well, now that the six-episode first season of the series starring Jean-Claude Van Damme is set for a December 15 launch, it’s time for me to admit I was so wrong on that one. Funny, smart where you don't expect it, a bit shameless, framed literally and figuratively like…

‘Fresh Off the Boat’ to ‘One Day at a Time’ Are the Family-Friendly Shows Leading the Charge for Youth Coming-Out Stories

‘Fresh Off the Boat’ to ‘One Day at a Time’ Are the Family-Friendly Shows Leading the Charge for Youth Coming-Out Stories
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Fresh Off the Boat” Season 4, Episode 10, “Do You Hear What I Hear?,” the first season of Netflix’s “One Day at a Time” and Season 2 of Disney Channel’s “Andi Mack.”]

“What up, girl. You gay?

You play any instruments?

Holla back at me.”

That eloquent haiku, scrawled on a coffee cup, is one of the first, albeit clumsy, attempts by “Fresh Off the Boat” character Nicole (Luna Blaise) to figure out what it means to live as a gay individual. Coming out has been an incremental process for her this season, and in Tuesday’s episode, she’s taking the next step. After developing a crush on a local barista at HotJava, Nicole considers communicating in poetry via paper cup to determine if the feeling is mutual.

Mainstream TV has come a long way since Ellen DeGeneres’ character came out on her self-titled sitcom 20 years ago. And these days, shows like ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat,” Netflix’s “One Day at a Time,” and Disney Channel’s “Andi Mack” have put youth coming-out stories at the front and center.
