There's a throwaway joke in the video game "Control" about how reboots and remakes of certain genres of television shows are actually the sneaky manipulations of a secretive and sinister government organization, all in an attempt to make an unsuspecting public more receptive to outlandish ideas and -- essentially -- easier to control.

We're right in the middle of the "Twiddling our thumbs" phase of the "No Time to Die" cycle -- far enough away from release that we've already been exposed to the majority of marketing (doubly so, considering the film's many delays and false starts), but close enough that we have nothing better to do except hang onto every new quote that comes out these days.Luckily for the "James Bond" franchise, there's no shortage of the latter.

Other Ryan Reynolds Movies You Should Watch After Free Guy 2021 is the year of deja vu. It has conquered our airwaves; it has twisted our headlines; and it has massively entrenched itself in multiplexes, where last year's movies are current entertainment. A relief? Sure. Numbing? That too. It's hard to shake the sense that we've already seen everything that theaters have to offer, given that we got our first glimpses of "Black Widow" and "F9" more than a year a half ago. So, in this strange season, what does it take to renew a moviegoer's excitement? How about Ryan Reynolds?

Fantastic Fest 2021 Review: IKE BOYS, Kindhearted Tribute to Sentai's Life Lessons The story goes that back in the late 60s a dynamic anime director in Japan made a very ambitious movie that bombed at the box office.

Extraction 2: Everything We Know So Far When "Extraction" debuted in 2020, it broke viewership records for Netflix and became the most-watched original movie in the streaming service's history up until that point. A sequel wasn't guaranteed, but after early test screenings, director Sam Hargrave purposefully created an ambiguous ending to keep that option on the table should Netflix want to continue the story. After the first film performed so well (at least according to Netflix; they don't share hard viewership data, so we have to just take them at their word), it's no surprise the streamer decided to make a sequel.

With all due respect to the warm weather fans out there, the month of October is upon us and that means it's finally time for the fall lovers among us (raises hand) to come out of hiding and start thriving. For Amazon Prime Video subscribers, the change in seasons also indicates a renewed focus on horror movies: from "The Last Exorcism," to "The Grudge 2" to "Resident Evil." But there's also plenty of new movies and shows that will be added to the streaming service for every sort of entertainment junkie out there.

Head to the workshed and grab your chainsaw, it's time for a new "Evil Dead" home media release. The aptly named "The Evil Dead Groovy Collection" will feature "The Evil Dead," "Evil Dead II," and the complete "Ash vs Evil Dead" series on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital. If you're wondering why this set doesn't include "Army of Darkness," the unfortunate answer is rights issues. Unlike the "Evil Dead" movies, "Army of Darkness" was partially financed by the De Laurentiis Company, thus ensuring that a box set containing all three films will (probably) never happen.
