10 Movies Not Covered On VH1’s I Love The 80s

by Johnny Capson April 16, 2018
Back in my RetroJunk days, many of my articles were list articles, and many of those lists pertained to the pop culture of the 1980s. As a lot of these articles were written in the 00s, they were part of the first wave of 80s nostalgia, probably best exemplified by VH1’s I Love The 80s […]

Ready Player One

Ready Player One Review

by Todd Blackon April 1, 2018
It’s rare that I’m ever truly moved by a film, and yet, I have been honored by two films now in two years that have moved me to my core. The first was Wonder Woman, which I gave a perfect score. And now, I’m honored to be giving a very similar honor to Ready Player One. […]

Remembering Dorothy Malone (Since The Oscars Didn’t)

On Monday, October 2nd, 2017, it was officially announced that singer Tom Petty has passed away. When his passing was officially announced, I felt the same way I did about Prince’s passing.

SHAZAM! is DC’s Next Movie To Film

by Todd Blackon August 17, 2017
The DCEU hasn’t always been the most stable thing in terms of production. Case and point, after Justice League premieres in November, there won’t be a DCEU film until December of 2018 with Aquaman.

Sonic Forces

E3 2017: Sonic Forces Gameplay Preview

by Jeffrey Harrison June 22, 2017
Sonic the Hedgehog has been through many ups and downs over the years. SEGA’s mascot has had his fair share of duds over the years, but he usually manages to bounce back. The 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog game was greatly maligned, and the franchise was able to survive that and have a great comeback. In […]
