Xolo Maridueña Kicking Ass in 'Cobra Kai' Is a Win for Latinx Representation

COBRA KAI'S second season, which originally aired in April 2019, ended on a shocking cliffhanger. After a massive, literally show-stopping fight at school, Xolo Maridueña's character, Miguel, was left in a coma after being kicked down stairs, landing square on his back. Fans desperately wanted to know Miguel's fate, even coming up with some outlandish theories. But on October 2, the trailer for the third season—due in January 2021—confirmed that Miguel survived the fall.

A Different Kind of Monster Movie: Writer Karen Walton Reflects on 'Ginger Snaps' 20 Years Later - Bloody Disgusting

When Ginger Snaps came out in 2000, it was unlike any other werewolf horror flick. Director John Fawcett and screenwriter Karen Walton turned the masculine subgenre on its head, focusing on an unexpected plot: a teenage girl’s period. In the film, Ginger, a 16-year-old outcast, is bitten by a lycanthrope right when she gets her period. She gains a newfound appetite for destruction and boys, while her best friend and sister Brigitte is left behind. I

Kevin Smith's 'Jay and Silent Bob Reboot' Pays Tribute to His Entire Career

Kevin Smith almost died in February 2018, when he had a massive heart attack and was told he had an 80 percent chance of not making it. The filmmaker was at peace with the notion of passing on, seeing it as a high school graduation of sorts, moving on to the next chapter after accomplishing everything he's set out to do. But he had one regret: If he died, the last movie he'd made would be 2016’s Yoga Hosers.

Better Things' Pamela Adlon Reveals How Big Changes Behind the Scenes Became a 'Hidden Blessing'

Pamela Adlon's Better Things arrived in 2016 with near instant critical adoration and, soon after, Emmys recognition for Adlon herself, who scored consecutive nominations in the lead comedy actress category for her semi-autobiographical portrayal at the heart of the show. While the whole series is brilliant, there's no season that deserves an Emmy nomination — and win, for that matter — more than the recently finished third.

In her three-decade-spanning career, Angela Bassett has tackled every kind of role you can imagine, including inspiring rom com heroine Stella in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Wakanda matriarch Ramonda in Black Panther, and, of course, her many characters in American Horror Story.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Reveals Thoughts on Felicity Jones-Starring Biopic 'On the Basis of Sex'

The Supreme Court justice was interviewed at and hosted the star-studded New York premiere of the film (Hillary Clinton and Gloria Steinem were among the guests). It’s no easy task to tell Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s story. The Supreme Court justice has become an icon in recent years, earning the moniker "Notorious R.B.G." But her nephew Daniel Stiepleman wanted to tell the story of her rise, before she became a bona fide celebrity.

4 Latina Stars Weigh In On The Battles They’re Still Fighting In A Slowly Changing Industry

Back in 2016, Latina writer and producer Ligiah Villalobos created a Latina Bechdel Test, per People, that she applied to the 50 top grossing films of that year. To pass, the film had to include a Latina character who was college educated and didn’t speak with a thick accent. The only movie that made the cut was Disney’s animated Zootopia — with Gazelle, a minor character who was voiced by Shakira. And it turns out that not much has changed in the film industry since then.

Molly Ringwald's New Movie 'All These Small Moments' Will Feel Brutally Real To Women Of Any Age

After the success of female-led coming of age stories like Lady Bird, there’s been a demand for stories that realistically portray womanhood. Luckily, a new film that perfectly captures its various stages, from adolescence to middle age, has emerged this year. All These Small Moments, which premiered at April's Tribeca Film Festival, features the teenage Howie (Brendan Meyer) as its protagonist, but the story is hardly about him. Instead, it focuses on the women in his life — Molly Ringwald, Jem
