Billy Porter talks to Billy Eichner about homophobia and transphobia in the Black community

In early June, Billy Porter shared a " message to America " on Instagram Live, in which he addressed homophobia and transphobia in the Black community. On Thursday, Billy Eichner — guest-hosting for Jimmy Kimmel— asked the Pose actor what inspired him to post it. "Growing up gay in the Black community, it's a very homophobic community across the board," Porter says. "With that said, as the worl...

Despite all the death, 'Shadowlands' is a space for growth in 'World of Warcraft'

World of Warcraft ’s eighth expansion, Shadowlands , sits on the edge of reality, throwing high-level players into the realm of the dead after one of the game’s most iconic characters, Sylvanas, tore open the fabric that separated the land of the living and the Shadowlands. A live-streamed developer update on Wednesday detailed some of the experiences players will see in Shadowlands . There are...

'Sex Education' star Aimee Lou Wood on getting through lockdown and how sex on TV is changing

"Sorry about that weird fart noise, it was my fridge, I promise." There are very few celebrities you'd feel comfortable even saying those words aloud to. But Aimee Lou Wood is different. "I did think it sounded like an animal," the Sex Education star replies, unfazed by the prolonged groaning noises emitted by my fridge during our phone call, and deeply unbothered by the myriad technical diffic...

'Deadly Premonition 2' is a fantastic mystery wrapped up in an ugly game

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is a conflicting experience. On one hand, the game’s narrative revolving around the mysterious murder of a young woman in a small Louisiana town is deeply intriguing with its constant twists and surprises that spin an ever-widening web of sadism, death, and terror until the very end. On the other hand, the game looks and plays like shit. As the seque...

'The Old Guard' is a slick and smart action blockbuster from Netflix

If nothing else, The Old Guard on Netflix is a great reminder of how satisfying it is to see Charlize Theron kick some ass. But make no mistake: There's plenty more to commend about director Gina Prince-Bythewood's take on the comic from Greg Rucka, which he also adapted here for film. Theron stars as Andromache of Scythia (Andy for short), the leader of a squad of immortal warriors who have sp...

10 of the best podcasts for horror fans

Horror and podcasting are like a match made in heaven (or rather hell), harkening back to times when we used to tell ghost stories around a campfire. The connection between horror and podcasts arguably dates back to one of humanity's oldest and most universal traditions. Listening to people tell scary stories was a staple of oral storytelling, and the technological evolution of podcasting has o...

Jon Stewart chats to Desus and Mero about the worst kind of Zoom people

Mastering your Zoom background on a video call can be a fine art. Obviously you can go for the custom option ( here are 15 we made specially, and here are some strange stock images if you're feeling particularly edgy), but if you're in a professional setting you may have to go down a more traditional route. The thing is, as Jon Stewart discusses with Desus and Mero in the video above, people pa...

How 'The Last of Us Part II' fails its women protagonists

This article contains spoilers for The Last of Us , The Last of Us Part II , and Left Behind. With two daughters starring as the lead protagonists, you’d think The Last of Us Part II would be a game about daughters. But it isn't. Instead, it only purports to be about Ellie and Abby, all while reducing both women's lives to revolving entirely around their fathers. Far from revolutionary, Last of...

Netflix's 'Down to Earth with Zac Efron' is great if you *love* Zac Efron

I didn’t understand plate tectonics until Zac Efron explained them to me. Sure, I’m a 24-year-old woman living in the earthquake capital of the United States, and who, unlike many of my peers, actually paid attention in seventh grade science class. And yes, I may have completed numerous environmental science and geology courses to fulfill my bachelors degree requirements in college. But still, ...
