A Dark and Twisted Gremlins 3 Might Be on the Horizon
A dark and twisted Gremlins 3 would mean going back to the film’s roots and exploring a new and disturbing way to introduce Gizmo and the little green guys that came from him. The only question is what would it be about and what would be the plot? We already know what happens when you toss water on Gizmo and what happens to a Mogwai when you feed them after midnight, so how could the film possibly go any further? It already did in a ridiculous sequel that was lauded as one of the craziest and least effective sequels ever.

Milwaukee Brewers Had a Game of Thrones Night Which Got a Little Strange
When you take pop culture references and affix them to a different venue it’s usually a good idea to take a look at what effect you’ll be pushing first. The Milwaukee Brewers could have taken that advice and spared themselves a lot of awkwardness on game night. A lot of us love Game of Thrones but this inclusion of the popular HBO show was a little weird. It was a fun attempt at a theme night to be honest but it still felt a little flat for those of us that really like the show. If it was a Star

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Play Leonardo da Vinci in Biopic
Leonardo DiCaprio has returned to the headlines because of the news that he will be playing Leonardo da Vinci in an upcoming biopic. This is an excellent choice because DiCaprio has more than proven his expertise and experience as an actor with a wide range of roles over the course of his career. Furthermore, it should be noted that DiCaprio’s mother named him Leonardo because she felt him kicking in utero when she was looking at one of da Vinci’s art-pieces at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, which makes this casting choice that much more appropriate. Summed up, if DiCaprio
