The Winners of the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

The 71st Annual Primetime Emmys have just concluded, with plenty of surprises throughtout the night as usual. However, what wasn't a surprise at all was seeing "Game of Thrones" come out the big winner of the evening by claiming its fourth straight Outstanding Drama Series title.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix: A Sad End for a Once-Great Series (Blu-ray)

The Film: When last we left the current “X-Men” series, we had been made to suffer through what is arguably the worst entry in the entire franchise, “X-Men: Apocalypse.” With its meandering storyline and one-dimensional villain, it was a major disappointment to the fans, especially after the first two entries of the rebooted saga (“First Class” and “Days of Future Past”) resulted in the two best films in the “X-Men” universe to date.
