M. Night Shyamalan mashes up two past hits into the wacky superhero sequel Glass

B-

The first time Samuel L. Jackson appears in Unbreakable, M. Night Shyamalan’s majestically moody turn-of-the-century spin on the superhero origin story, he’s waxing rhapsodic about comic books, with all the command Jules Winnfield reserved for imaginary Bible verses.

A lovingly lighthearted Modern Family offers up a nice change of pace

B+

This season of Modern Family hasn’t featured too many “in between” episodes. You know, the ones that aren’t outlandish comedies or loaded with emotional stakes. Rather, the “in between” episodes are perfect to break up the season. This season has swung wildly to either outrageous, often annoying bits of comedy, or…

This Spinning Sleeve Makes Your AirPod Case Even More Fidgetable

As much I love my AirPods as headphones, the best feature of Apple’s wireless earbuds has always been their fidget-friendly charging case.

Rob Zombie's Devil’s Rejects sequel is done filming and apparently "chockablock with gratuitous violence"

It was the bloodthirsty, Leatherfacian Firefly family of 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses that introduced us to the filmmaking of Rob Zombie, but it was its sequel, 2005's The Devil’s Rejects, that had us thinking he may actually be good at it. Since then, he’s had some highs (The Lords Of Salem), some lows (Halloween),…
