    ‘Furious 7′ Gets First Trailer (Video)

    The Fast and Furious franchise was in jeopardy for a while after the death of star Paul Walker, but it quickly became evident that the series was too strong to stop just because a piece of the core ensemble was gone.

    The Internet Arcade: 900-Title Browser-Playable Video Game Library

    If you grew up in the golden age of video arcades, or if you’ve only read about it, it’s easy to think that for every Pac-Man or Donkey Kong there are hundreds of games that have gone practically extinct, rendered obscure and forgotten by a few measly decades.

    At this point in cinematic history, there are Marvel movies, and then there’s everything else.
