See Locke early and free with director Q+A post screening

Locke looks to be like Tom Hardy's most challenging role as he plays a man in dire straights working out his troubles while driving around in his car. It doesn't sound too tense, but word is it is one of the most thrilli...

See Transcendence early and free

Johnny Depp as a computer mind should be pretty interesting, right? I'm thinking so. While the concept behind Transcendence isn't crazy original its execution sounds like it will be. I'm very interested in it, especially...

See Oculus early and free

It's been a while since we've had a solid scary movie land so I'm a bit hyped for Oculus, which got very solid buzz coming out of SXSW. Plus, it has Dr. Who companion Karen Gillan in it making it totally nerd awesome. Wa...

FOOOOOTBALL! No, wait. DRAFTING PLAYERS TO PLAY FOOTBALL!  It's a testament to how desperate America is when there's no football to be watched that an entire film can be based on the draft, but, I mean, we are reall...

Jude Law usually goes all clean cut for his roles. That's probably good because he's pretty nice to look at, but what happens when he goes scummy? We can all find out when Dom Hemingway lands, and you can find out earlie...

See Sabotage early and free

I might be hyping Sabotage more than most other movies, but that's because it isn't getting the respect it (hopefully) deserves. Arnold is awesome and director David Ayer is even awesome..er. So get excited! And then gra...

So you want to know the story of Jesus Christ? Well, there's that big thick book you could read, but man is it written funny and it's damn long. Hasn't someone made a movie about parts of it yet? Yes, they have, but now they'...

I think we've all been waiting very patiently for The Monuments Men to come out ever since it was delayed back in December. The cast is awesome, the story is true and it's a WWII movie to boot. There's a reason ever...

Win a Wolf of Wall Street Soundtrack

The Wolf of Wall Street was overall a pretty bad ass movie. Sex, drugs, money and a soundtrack to express an era of decadence and wanton corruption. In other words, an awesome soundtrack. It's pretty eclectic as well, ra...
