Best Worst Movie

Watching movies doesn't have to be a communal experience. Hell, sometimes a really great movie is best watched on your own, in case it's awesomely downbeat and puts you in a self-reflective funk, or just makes you ugly-cry like a toddler for hours. Bad movies, though? Bad movies are totally...…

Proops On

Greg Proops has been a cult comedy fave for nearly two decades now, as popular overseas (original U.K. Whose Line Is It Anyway? cast, w00t!) as he is here among comedy nerds. Equally prolific as a standup, voice-over artist and TV panelist as he is for the improv comedy that...…

San Diego Comic-Con 2011: The Walking Dead is Back, With A Vengeance

At last year's San Diego Comic-Con, The Walking Dead hadn't yet debuted on AMC. Of huge interest to comics fans and zombie aficionados, filmmaker (and now showrunner) Frank Darabont's epic based on Robert Kirkman's acclaimed Image graphic novel series was a popular draw, if not quite the must-see hot-ticket that...…

Wolverine Brings the Swag to Petco Park at San Diego Comic-Con

Part of the attraction of Comic-Con is never knowing when a celeb is going to turn up. Sure, you know they'll be in the big panels in Hall H or Ballroom 20, and occasionally you'll get lucky and bump into one on the exhibit hall floor. Sometimes, though, you get...…
