From movies, to television, to comics, to video games and more, we’ve picked a few highlights from the last seven days to help spurn conversation – but feel free to discuss any topic (within reason) that catches your fancy. This week, we’ve brought back Geek Picks as well – just a few items we’ve discovered that you might find interesting.
As with any new project, we’ll be updating and modifying the SR Forum post as we find new and interesting ways to present the information and discussion. Give us your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section. As usual, talk about whatever you like as long as it’s related to movies, TV or Screen Rant itself.

Everything old is new again, as news comes from the music front that the late-David Bowie and Trevor Jones’ classic soundtrack for the fantasy movie Labyrinth will be getting a vinyl re-release.
In the world of board games comes news that Winning Solutions has created a version of Monopoly, befitting enough that Optimus Prime and his fellow Autbots could play it on Cybertron. The amazing board is so classy that it literally

We’re getting closer to seeing the new Saban’s Power Rangers in theaters and this new trailer gives us a look at the movie’s “humor” – uh oh.
In this comedy/drama, Anne Hathaway plays an alcoholic who can mentally control a giant, building-smashing monster. It’s probably a poorly hidden allegory but we’ll watch it anyway.
Scarlett Johansson is The Major – a butt-kicking, ninja-like android who shoots first and never takes names. If you need more information than that, this movie probably isn’t for you.
Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler want to send their daughter to college but can’t afford it, so they do what any parent would do in that situation – open an illegal, underground casino.
“Spectre of the Gun” certainly had people talking this past week – unfortunately, it wasn’t in a good way.
Since his drunken, anti-Semitic tirade a few years ago, Gibson has struggled to get back in the general public’s good graces. Could directing a movie in the DCEU change that?
