Since gaining popularity in the mid-90s, Ridley Scott’s film Blade Runner has been viewed by many as the first and last word in sci-fi. Its depiction of a polluted, rain-soaked, and crime-ridden future gave us a textured world that revolutionized the dystopian sub-genre. Blade Runner’s iconic take on the world of tomorrow may remain unmatched in the cinematic universe, but that does not mean it … Continue reading The Blade Runner Legacy: Six Shows That Rival the Dystopian Classic – ScreenHub Entertainment

TV has come a long way since the early days of I Love Lucy and The Love Boat. These days, in fact, a show like Game of Thrones sometimes garners more critical praise than the latest Oscar contender. Still, there’s something to be said for remembering television’s history, its early simplicity. Shows that can play on that simplicity in fresh ways can be every bit as enjoyable as the complicated and confusing critical darlings.

The onset of 2018 brought its own set of disruptions that upset society’s normally peaceful façade. With such disorder came a surge of change that has yet to show any signs of slowing. Among these controversial conversations were political talks centred around a push for equality of all kinds – equality for racial minorities, for women, for the LGBT+ community. While none of these topics have emerged as novelty ideas, previously unfamiliar to humanity, their importance has been widely disregarded throughout history by people in positions of power. Politicians, the media, and the big businesses alike have turned a blind eye to the most marginalized groups in society; yet, as this new era dawns, many are determined to give prominence to those whose lives are too often neglected.

In this post, I will … Continue reading The First Blackfyre Rebellion Explained – ScreenHub Entertainment

While Game Of Thrones comes to an end next year with season 8, five prequels have been announced to be in production but only one greenlit so far (The Long Night). Game of Thrones has easily become the most popular show of the decade and will arguably surpass J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth in the coming years. I think it’s fair to say that we want to see more of the Game of Thrones world following the end of the show and I think delving into its rich lore and history are just the way to do this. In this post, I will be breaking down what the 4 unconfirmed prequel shows could be and what else could be done with the universe.
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.
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.

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.
