'Guardians of the Galaxy': Film Review

'Guardians of the Galaxy': Film Review

From the golden-typefaced title to the wisecracking dialogue and save-the-universe plotline, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has been begging comparison to Star Wars from its initial marketing push (particularly the venerable Episode IV — A New Hope).

'The Flash' Producers Promise Unexpected Detours, Surprising 'Arrow' Drop-Ins

'The Flash' Producers Promise Unexpected Detours, Surprising 'Arrow' Drop-Ins

One of fall's flashiest shows is setting the bar high.

The CW's The Flash, a spinoff of the darker and broodier Arrow, takes a lighter spin with Barry Allen, the awkward Central City Police Department forensics expert so enthralled with the Arrow that he'd proclaim himself a fanboy.
