Captain Marvel features the long awaited live action debut of Carol Danvers; a spectacularly de-aged, two-eyed Nick Fury; and a cat named Goose everyone couldn’t help but love. It also features the first ever MCU appearance of an alien race known as the Skrulls, one of Marvel’s most well known cosmic threats. The Skrulls have been stirring up trouble for comic book fans since the early 60s with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four #2. They’re a shapeshifting race of invaders who infiltrate and destabilize any planet in their crosshairs by disguising themselves as friend and foe alike, turning allies against one another. They’ve been the central antagonist of countless event stories, seeding paranoia and fear throughout the Marvel universe one stolen identity at a time. But now that they’ve finally made landfall in Captain Marvel, we’re left wondering: Can these new Skrulls be the brand new Marvel Universe big-bads we’ve been … [Read more...] about Can Captain Marvel’s Skrulls be the next big-bad after Avengers: Endgame?

It’s perhaps fitting that a game with the tagline “nothing is true; everything is permitted” emerged from creative director Patrice Désilets bending the rules. Assassin’s Creed began life as a Prince of Persia game, expanded and reimagined for a new generation of consoles. You might say it even ended up feeling like one, though Désilets’ creative interpretation of Ubisoft’s mandate layered on many additional challenges for the team at Ubisoft Montreal. Today, Assassin’s is one of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, but back then Assassin’s Creed was something new. Its labyrinthine fiction twisted the modern day with the past, offering a science fiction tale of genetic memory and end-of-the-world conspiracies intertwined with another story of a master assassin coming to realize his own ignorance. Its world was made for unprecedented freedom — your character being able to … [Read more...] about Assassin’s Creed: An oral history
Females on film While film school classes and incensed critics continue to debate the lack of women in film, female actresses are fighting the good fight on the silver screen itself.

The first time Taylor Kurosaki and Bob Rafei saw a running PlayStation, they were in a Las Vegas hotel room. It was the 1995 Consumer Electronics Show. They, along with the company they worked for, Naughty Dog, were being given a behind-closed-doors look at Sony's first foray into the game console industry. When they describe the event now, they use words like "inspiring" and "enthralled" and phrases like "blown away." They didn't know it at the time, but the members of Naughty Dog in that room — Kurosaki, Rafei and co-founders Jason Rubin and Andy Gavin — were looking at the system that would host the team's next game: Crash Bandicoot. They were seeing the console their company would eventually create the unofficial mascot for — the console they would develop Naughty Dog's first smash hit for. It was Kurosaki and Rafei's second day with the company. Naughty Dog released Crash Bandicoot for Sony's original PlayStation in September 1996. In it, the team took an old … [Read more...] about Crash Bandicoot: An oral history
