Absolutely everything today is public – every post, every text, every email, every tweet. In our internet-obsessed world, humanity is permanently connected through each individual’s digital footprint. It is no longer uncommon to wake up to a seemingly endless string of tweets made by anyone from world leaders to the primary faces of pop culture. However, at what point can we draw the line between free speech and ignorant oversharing? On May 29th, this sensitive issue was brought to light on a global scale and under unfortunate circumstances.
Suicide Squad was no one’s favourite movie. Despite a rockin’ trailer, the film opened to overwhelmingly negative reviews. I myself couldn’t even finish the film, despite initially being excited to see the ensemble piece starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto as the Joker. But the film made a killing at the box office thanks to its impressive marketing campaign that showcased style over substance. Now, one of the most divisive and unusual aspects of that film is getting his own standalone film.
When one hears the name Leonardo DiCaprio, what comes to mind? Perhaps it’s his acclaimed role in Titanic, or dramatic performance in The Wolf of Wall Street, or even his dedicated efforts in The Revenant. Or, could it be his devotion to speaking on current and increasingly threatening global issues? Before the Flood, an investigative documentary delving into the murky reality of climate change, follows Leonardo … Continue reading Leonardo DiCaprio: Actor or Advocate? – ScreenHub Entertainment
May 18th is a day I did not foresee as one of controversy. Yet, when it was announced that this would be the premiere date for season two of 13 Reasons Why, the backlash was inevitable. This Netflix series first hit the public eye in March 2017 and immediately left critics divided. Based on the novel by Jay Asher, 13 Reasons Why centres in on the … Continue reading A Second Chance for ’13 Reasons Why’? – ScreenHub Entertainment

Syfy, your go-to destination for all things Sharknado, has cancelled its flagship series, The Expanse after three seasons. Based on the on going book series by James S.A. Corey, the show was a tale set in the future, with Earth having successfully colonized the solar system. The show was one full of layered characters, tense political landscapes on the brink of war, wonderful visual effects and a plot that weaved multiple protagonists into one cohesive plot. In fact, I’d say the series is science fictions answer to Game of Thrones.
The Fast and the Furious franchise is known now for being an over the top, goofy action series that’s best described as a Saturday morning cartoon. Well, looks like the good folks at Netflix saw that comparison and decided to make it a reality as the streaming platform has just ordered a Fast and Furious animated spin off series with their new partners.
When the first Fantastic Beasts film came out in 2016, I expressed my enjoyment of the film overall but criticized the overall tone and story structure. The main plot, which saw Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander hunt down missing beasts in 1926 New York felt weak and uninspired. Remember that Central Park scene? I wish I couldn’t. But the film was set against a much more interesting B plot, one full of dark wizards, infiltrators and dark magical and it looks like that’s where the magic will happen in the film’s sequel, Crimes of Grindelwald. Warner Bros unveiled a teaser trailer today and the film looks much more like something out of the Wizarding World than the first one ever did!
Remember back at E3 2013 when Microsoft announced a live action Halo TV series for it’s Xbox platform? Yeah, you’ll be forgiven if you forgot about it, or for that matter, never heard about it. But despite the laughable delay in production, it seems Steven Spielberg and his production company, Amblin, are moving ahead with the show and have set a filming date!
Mario and Nintendo had an extremely successful 2017, thanks to the release of Mario Odyssey on the Switch. But the fun doesn’t end there for the popular video game studio-or its lead mascot. It was confirmed today that the video game giant Nintendo will be partnering with Illumination Studios, the minds behind Despicable Me, Minions and the upcoming Grinch reboot, to give us a new film starring our favorite Italian plumber.
