Netflix Takes the Oscars (image Courtesy of Vulture.com)

Netflix had an outsized presence at the 2019 Oscars despite their unconventional way of distributing films.(image Courtesy of Vulture.com)

The 2019 Oscars or Academy Awards were like no other. There was a superhero film up for Best Picture and a superhero film actually won for Best Animated Feature. Among top films to come away a winner this year was an Alfonso Curaón film named Roma. It scored an industry first in that despite the fact that it was available for viewers to stream on Netflix even as it was still playing in theaters, Roma was not only a serious contender for competitive awards like Best Director and Best Picture, it actually won three of the four awards it was nominated for.

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Captain Marvel

Set in the 1990s and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who arrives on the planet Earth after engaging in a fight against the Skrulls. Separated from her team, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) will help Carol find the answers she is looking for and help prevent the war between the Kree and the Skrulls from reaching their planet.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast and crew of Captain Marvel. There, both Jackson and Gregg talked about working with de-aging film technology, what it took to convince them to return, and what piece of ’90s nostalgia they would like to see make a comeback. Check out what the two had to say below.

‘Captain Marvel’ Interview: Brie Larson On Finding That Inner Strength To Become Carol Danvers

Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be their cinematic shining example of female empowerment. Literally. The character, who just glows with photon power, will be making her big debut come early March when her first standalone film is released. In it, Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers, a noble warrior hero of the Kree’s peacekeeping military force, Starforce. But when a mission goes bad, she finds herself on Earth, where the enemy Skrulls have already infiltrated. Determined to stop them, she learns that she may have had a past life on this planet. On her journey of self-discovery, she comes to find out that she may have had more power in herself than she originally thought.

We were fortunate enough to sit down with our fellow journalists at a press conference in LA, where Larson, along with Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) chatted about the film.

Check out what Larson had to say about finding that inner strength to become Captain Marvel and why it is so important to push for more inclusivity below.

Valentines Day charitable gift ideas

It’s Valentine’s Day!!! It’s a great day to show the people in our lives how much we love them. But it’s also a good time to spread the love to others with some generosity and charity.

If you’re still searching for a last-minute gift, or perhaps would like something extra to give, consider some of these thoughtful, stress-free, last-minute charitable gifts this Valentine’s Day.

See below for our list of Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.

Here’s what you can do: Make a charitable donation online — in some instances you can do so in the recipient’s name — then print out the e-card or other message offered. You can add this to an existing gift or give it on its own. To accompany this, you can run over to your local Walgreens or CVS (or any kind of pharmacy type place), grab a tiny box of chocolates and/or small plush animal, put it together with the charitable gift print-out into a pretty gift bag (add tissue paper if possible to fancy it up), which will make a lovely presentation.

Oh, and most of these donations are tax-deductible! So you’ll be helping others, while giving the gift.

Can You Dig It? ‘The Warriors’ Turns 40

the warriors movie

The Warriors, the comic book-stylized film in which a New York City gang tries to make its way home after being wrongly implicated in a key gang leader’s death, celebrated its 40th anniversary this month.

Initially released to controversy due to copycat violence in some theaters during some of the screenings and the burgeoning presence of real-life gangs roaming New York streets, The Warriors has since become a symbol of pop culture iconography both as a cult classic to generations of fans globally and an early template for the kind of action films that mixed comic book narrative and martial arts-stylized fight sequences.
