Lamb Review (2021)

Lamb Review (2021)

Lamb will be released in North American theaters on Oct. 8. Review by Siddhant Adlakha. An intriguing slow-burn that feels unsettling and comfortable in equal measure, Lamb takes a roundabout approach to revealing its bittersweet story of a farming couple who adopts a unique animal child and fully commits themselves to parenthood – at any cost. It’s an undeniably absurdist take on parenthood, but also one that’s truly sympathetic and strangely convincing. #IGN #Movies #Lamb

Tom Hardy and Andy Serkis Play: Venom Symbiote or Death Metal Band?

It may or may not surprise you just how similar the names of Venom symbiotes are to those of death metal bands. We asked Venom: Let There Be Carnage director Andy Serkis, and star Tom Hardy if they could tell which one was which (or even both).

Arcane – Official Trailer

Arcane – Official Trailer

Based on the world behind League of Legends, Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Known across Runeterra as the “city of progress,” many of the most brilliant minds call these cities home. But the creation of hextech, a way for any person to control magical energy, threatens that balance. While Arcane holds the backstories of League of Legends champions, the series is designed to stand on its own as a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking animation, and suspenseful storytelling. The show is structured into three distinct

Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer: Freddy Krueger Easter Eggs and a New Mystery

Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer: Freddy Krueger Easter Eggs and a New Mystery

Stranger Things has always leaned into the ’80s references, from the Upside Down’s creepy crawlies that feel like they came straight from John Carpenter’s The Thing, to the Fast Times poolside walk, to Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, Stephen King, and so much more. And they’re definitely not stopping in Season 4, if the new Stranger Things teaser out of Netflix’s Tudum event is any indication. In fact, a 1980s icon is joining the cast of Stranger Things’ fourth season, as Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, will play a character named Victor Creel.
