Beyond Monopoly: The growing world of alternative tabletop gaming

Why does Marvel's 'Iron Fist' divide audiences and critics?

Yes. I’ve watched all 13 episodes of Marvel’s “Iron Fist” on Netflix already. They were just released on Friday. I have no excuse. I realize this was not a wise use of my time. I think it’s easily the weakest of the Marvel Netflix shows, and I’m not alone in that opinion. As of this writing, “Iron Fist” (TV-MA) holds a dismal 19 percent rating on RottenTomatoes.com, which means that 81 percent of the critics essentially agree with me.

From 'Pokemon' to 'Power Rangers': Why ’90s pop culture is making a comeback

This week, American film audiences can head to their local theater for the release of "Power Rangers," a live-action movie based on the popular martial arts children’s show that premiered in 1993. The movie is just the latest in a long line of cultural products from the ’80s and ’90s to be rebooted for modern audiences. The last few years alone have seen new film adaptations of "Ghostbusters," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Jurassic Park." Combined with the seemingly endless stream of superhero flicks, it would be understandable for audiences to ask the question, “Why all the remakes?”
