Lost River, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, not coming to a theater near you

Critics didn't particularly like Lost River, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut. It received a critical thrashing when it premiered at Cannes, and that likely played into the newly announced decision to bring the film stra...

Review: Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher quickly grabbed a lot of attention for its stark representation of some big named actors. While Steve Carell has tackled heavier material before, he had never looked as sinister as he did in the first couple of ima...

Review: Big Eyes

Everyone, I'm about to shock you to your core. Big Eyes is a Tim Burton film and it is quite possible that the color black doesn't appear once. Shades of greys and shadows, yes, but the Gothic trendings of the director a...

Review: American Sniper

Clint Eastwood is easily one of the best directors in Hollywood so him tackling the incredible story of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle is something to get pretty excited about. We already know he has the war movie chops tha...

Newest trailer for American Sniper is American

I'm not usually one for these "America" films, but Clint Eastwood has proven time and time again he's good at deconstructing the jingoistic nature of the country. I've been gripped by American Sniper ever since its first tra...

First trailer for True Story starring James Franco and Jonah Hill

When you hear James Franco and Jonah Hill are starring in a movie together chances are some cheap comedy comes to mind. But beside their comedic talents, they're terrific actors capable of leading any drama (see Palo Alto or...

Review: After the Fall

Every now and then, I opt to review a movie I know next to nothing about. Pretty much all I knew about After the Fall was that it had Wes Bentley of American Beauty, The Hunger Games, and most recently, American Horror S...

Trailer for White God features the dogpocalypse

Remember those awesome Homeward Bound movies? White God is nothing like that. Imagine the worst possible outcome for that film (and throw in Lady and the Tramp for good measure) and you've got what looks and sounds like a gr...

First trailer for San Andreas starring Dwayne Johnson and earthquakes

Dwayne Johnson has been shaking up the film world for a few years now, but outside of Disney and few disappointing missteps, he has yet to find a breakout lead role. Hoping to remedy this is San Andreas, the Californian disa...

Regardless of how you felt toward Spike Lee's kickstarter campaign last year, the "Hottest Newest Spike Lee Joint" is almost out, sho nuff. A remake of Ganja and Hess, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus follows Dr. Hess Green, a man wi...

First full trailer for Escobar: Paradise Lost

I'd developed a taste for drug stories growing up, and Pablo Escobar was the subject of a majority of them. A Columbian cocaine juggernaut in the 80s-90s (who most likely inspired the "Columbian drug lord" trope in films tod...

NYKFF Review: The Attorney

If you look up stills from The Attorney, you're going to have a wildly inaccurate perception of what the film is supposed to be. Look at the poster. They're happy, right? Below you'll find another image of people being h...

First trailer for The Cobbler, starring Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler signs on for so many films for the money, it's hard to parse whether or not he's in that one winning film he gets every couple of years. It's clear that he's got talent, but it's a shame to see him go down such ...

See The Theory of Everything early and free

You'll want to be up to date on The Theory of Everything. Not only is it the amazing life story of Stephen Hawkins and his wife, but it has Oscar buzz all around it. How do you get in on the ground floor so you can look all s...

See Beyond the Lights early and free

Most of the time I give you a little snippet about the film here when introducing these screenings, but I am woefully uneducated about Beyond the Lights. Bad movie news person. That doesn't mean that you are, though, and mayb...

Review: Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler has come out of nowhere to become one of my favorite films of 2014. As of right now, I'd even go as far to say that it is my favorite overall. I didn't even know it existed until a few months ago where a brief te...

First trailer for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea

Based on Nathaniel Phillbrick's book In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex (the Essex's story in turn inspired Herman Melville's Moby Dick), Heart is directed by Ron Howard and stars Chris Hemswort...

Get passes for any showing of Men, Women and Children

Still haven't seen Jason Reitmen's Men, Women and Children? That's OK, I haven't either, but now you can at no risk. We've got passes for the film at any Regal Cinema in DC. The movie looks pretty solid so we'd love for you t...

Newest trailer for Foxcatcher catches feelings

Foxcatcher is probably going to win all of the awards. From great early buzz from the festival circuit, to a cast that all seem to be on point (with Steve Carell leading the way with a terribly disturbing turn), to director ...

Skinny Mark Wahlberg is skinny in first The Gambler images

I'm excited for The Gambler as it will be very interesting to see how Rupert Wyatt follows up the incredible Rise of the Planet of the Apes with a very grounded drama. However, the thing that will attract most peopl...
