Bachelor in Paradise
Can you believe we've only got one week left of "Bachelor in Paradise?" Take some time and allow yourself to adjust. It's tough, we know.

After next week, there's not going to be any "Bachelor"-related material until January. That long streak that began in May with "The Bachelorette" and continued through this kinda-ok-at-times Mexican spin-off, is nearly dead.

Last week in Paradise, our our lovable, Macklemore-esque Cody told his island girlfriend Michelle h...

'Teen Wolf' Season 4 Episode 11 Recap: Less Teen Melodrama, Please

September 2nd, 2014 8:37am EDT
Teen Wolf

Maybe we’ve been spoiled for the past few season of Teen Wolf, but it’s generally around this time that the plot and energy kind of explodes into what I can only describe as 44 minutes of the characters scrambling around to dubstep as they try and find their footing. The stakes were always raised and they were always based in character. You can actually trace it back all the way to the beginning. In fact, I will break down penultimate e...

10 Saddest Deaths In Kids' Movies

September 1st, 2014 9:46pm EDT
Scar
Most movies aimed at children over the years teach important life lessons that the kids can use to make the right decision when they grow older. The movies often end with the protagonist learning some tired and true fact about how you should always follow your heart or be honest and kind.

In a lot of those same movies though, it's often the journey of how the character arrived at that life lesson that is just as remembered, especially if the events along the way were traumatic. Disney and other companies have not been afraid to put some very adult-like developments into their children's fi...
