Jessica Chastain: A Career In Review by Autumn Henderson-Brazie
Slowly but surely, Jessica Chastain is climbing the ladder among Hollywood A-listers. After making her big-screen debut in 2008 she's been nominated for two Academy Awards and three Golden Globes, one of which she won for her role in Zero Dark Thirty (2012). Still, she manages to keep a low profile and remain one of the industry's best kept secrets. But not for long! Let's have a quick chat with Autumn, as she explains to us why the actress' career is already so impressive, and why Jessica (can I call you Jessica?) is simply one of the best in the biz.

Why Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens is Going to Be One of the BEST Star Wars Films Yet by Sam Lawrence
So I'm not sure if you've heard, but there's a new Star Wars film coming out this December and it's supposed to be pretty good apparently. The film will reprise many classic characters such Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker (hopefully). A lot fans, including new Creator Sam Lawrence, feel like The Force Awakens could be the greatest Star Wars film of all time. It's quite a large expectation I know, but quite frankly I'm inclined to agree with them. What do you think?
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens arrives in theaters December 18th, 2015.
Terrifying Horror Movies You Have To See (at least once) by Kevin Chiles
Some horror films are so good that I have to watch them multiple, MULTIPLE times. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've watched The Shining more than 20 times in my life. All work and no play, right? Still, there are some films that you simply don't need to subject yourself to more than once - one time is definitely enough! If you're looking for one such film that will shock you, curdle your blood and make you squirm in your seat then either one of these should do the trick. If you find yourself having trouble sleeping the following week, Kevin Chiles is to thank.
The Proof Is in the Pulp: Sex, Power and Food in Pulp Fiction by Ron Underwood
Food is an integral part of human life, so it's only natural that it has become a familiar and popular recurring element in the art we create. Think of all the paintings, films, songs and literature in which food/dining is the main topic of discussion. The list goes on forever! So, for the moment we'll join Ron Underwood and talk specifically about the depiction of food in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. What does the juxtaposition of food, sex and violence mean to the film and to the characters within this fictional world? I highly suggest you guys check this one out because it's a fascinating read. After you finish I promise you'll never look at a Big kahuna Burger the same way again.
Dragonball is arguably one of the biggest franchises in the world. Ever since its conception, it has dominated the worlds of animation, merchandise, clothing and manga. It's truly a force to be reckoned with! Yet, when it comes to the world of gaming, it still has some ways to go to achieve a true level of greatness. Sure, the Budokai series was a ton of fun and were really good games, but they were far from perfect. Call it nitpicky, but the perfect Dragonball fighter is still out there, waiting to be made, and Eduardo Lopez's thoughts on how to do it is definitely a plan I can get behind!
