Bitch Planet Triple Feature Brings The Sci-Fi Satire This December

Ever since Bitch Planet came out, it quickly gathered a fan base excited about it's feminist take on the exploitation story so prevalent in American cinema in the 1960s and 70s.

Is Inhumans Really That Bad?

After watching the broadcast debut of Marvel's Inhumans, I have to stop and analyze what I just watched and compare it to the reviews that I've read.
