Whether it’s a high-speed foot chase in an action movie, a contemplative character-building jog, or triumphant track-and-field accomplishments in films like Chariots of Fire and Prefontaine, running has long been a part of films. There’s something inherently cinematic to the act of running – it lends a sense of kinetic urgency to action sequences, or
Many hours of scientific research have yielded the following data, suitable for citation in academic journals. Speculation as to what any of these “sex moves” would entail is beyond the scope of our project and frankly not suitable for serious scholarly discussion.

Remember Power Rangers, that wacko show you used to watch as a kid? You know, with the colorful superhero team that assembles into a giant robot to fight stock footage from old Japanese kaiju movies? What if I told you there’s a new movie version of that hitting theaters this weekend? What, you didn’t realize?
One of this weekend’s most anticipated new movies — or to put it more accurately, this week’s most anticipated new movie about motorcycle-riding police officers in California — is CHiPs (Cannibalistic Humanoid Police).

20th Century Fox’s Logan hits theaters this week, and while it’s by all accounts a fantastic film the aspect of it I’m most interested in right this second is its entry onto the list of movies named after one of their characters.

The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey opens this weekend, and while you’d think Fifty Shades Darker than grey would be black it’s actually just the same white couple pretending to be kinky. They have their fans, and I’ll admit there are laughs to be found, but the movies aren’t nearly as sexy as they
We have begun a new era in American history. On Jan. 20, reality TV star, sexual-assault perpetrator, and all-around garbage human being Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States. The future has never looked so bleak! And so, in these uncertain times, we look to movies to show us what our
