First official trailer for Ted 2

Ted was a nice surprise. Seth MacFarlane's passion project shined with all of the humor and heart that I would've never expected from the guy who brought us Family Guy. Then A Million Ways to Die in the West came along and w...

First teaser trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower

For a film based off the cheesy Dead Rising videogames going straight to Sony's Crackle streaming service, this doesn't look that bad. Doesn't have enough Frank West covering wars though. Dead Rising: Watchtower is available March 27th.

Get Hard trailer with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart is... actually funny

Both Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart can be really funny guys, but the second I heard about Get Hard I figured I'd be driving the other way. It looked like a dumb film playing on all the wrong racial stereotypes just pull l...

First trailer for Spy brings Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig back again

Melissa McCarth and Paul Feig are like bestest comedy buddies, and their efforts turn out pretty solid as Bridesmaids and The Heat (Nick was too harsh) can attest to. The pair are pairing up again for a spy sp...

See The Wedding Ringer early and free

Some folks find Kevin Hart hilarious. I find him modestly amusing depending on the film, but if you find him hilarious then you should grab these tickets to The Wedding Ringer because then you can see him and laugh. Pret...

The Interview grossed $31 million on VOD despite piracy

When Sony released The Interview on most video demand services but its own, it was promptly pirated nearly 100 million times. At first it seemed like this news would only deter studios from simultaneous theatrical and VOD rel...

The Voices trailer delivers more than it appears

In the realm of talking animal movies there's pretty much one genre and that genre is children's comedies. The Voices is not that. Yes, it has talking animals, but it's also a dark comedy with slasher instincts. Plus, it...

Why what The Interview says about North Korea actually matters (an analysis)

I saw The Interview because I was curious. Amidst the complete ridiculousness of the past few weeks, thoughts and feelings have been flying around about the film. Outside of the few who had attended pre-chaos press screenings...

Review: The Interview

After a crazy couple of weeks of Sony hacks, full on terrorist attack threats, cancellations, and a last minute reneging, I sort of forgot that at the center of all this mess was a comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco....

First trailer for Entourage film reunites the... entourage

I'm actually the last person who should be writing about the Entourage movie since I never got into the show at all and when I did watch it I wasn't that into it. I know. I'm a terrible person, but Dre is gone so you get...

The Interview getting limited theatrical release, possibly VOD

After all of the hubub and hooey giving attention to a film that's probably super funny, but forgettable, Sony is allowing a limited theatrical run of The Interview on its intended Christmas Day release (for those theaters th...

Review: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

I don't think anyone thought we'd be seeing a franchise born when Night at the Museum first hit. The movie was plenty fun and surprisingly creative with a solid message that really didn't need to be revisited. Then it was, an...

Marvel's Ant-Man gets official synopsis

From the looks of things, Marvel's Ant-Man is finally settling down after months and months of trouble. Whether or not you like the idea of multiple rewrites, late cast additions, or Edgar Wright leaving a project he helped g...

This trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 certainly exists

Despite its flaws, Hot Tub Time Machine gained quite the momentum on home video. That's usually how most of these comedy sequels work nowadays. The original is a small hit, gains cult status on home video, then is repeated s...

Final Trailer for Rogen and Goldberg's The Interview

I've been worried how Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were possibly going to follow up This is the End, hands down one of the best films of 2013, after their recently produced effort Neighbors showed quite a few cracks in their...

Review: Horrible Bosses 2 photo
Review: Horrible Bosses 2
by Matthew Razak

You know when something is funny you just have to do it again, right? That's the logic with Horrible Bosses 2. The original film actually had an appealing cast that worked well together pulling the film out of cliche and into funny. Seems reasonable to assume they could do it again.

In fact so reasonable that they brought everyone back (well everyone who survived the first). Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day all jump back into roles that were never meant to be jumped back into. Can the trio elevate another film?

First official trailer for Pitch Perfect 2

I once wrote an article on why making a sequel to Pitch Perfect, one of the most charming films of 2012, was a bad idea. The first is kind of dumb, Glee isn't the juggernaut it was a few years ago, but through all of that, I...
