Box Office Numbers: Still Outta Compton

As Summer comes to an end, Straight Outta Compton is free to reign until it's all over. It's a weak release weekend for sure, but Compton's intake doubles every other film's with $26 million. So glad it's caught an audience, ...   0

Fear the Walking Dead Series Premiere Recap: Pilot

It's pretty much guaranteed Fear the Walking Dead's premiere will be compared to The Walking Dead's first episode. While the latter's premiere gave birth to a juggernaut, Fear most likely will be unfavorably, and unfairly, ju...   0

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse Red Band Trailer is full of zombie boobs and cats

Zombie movies are a dime a dozen. Everything and anything you can think has probably been done at this point, so each zombie film is already starting in a hole. The best thing any film can do is be just kooky enough to stand ...   0

Red Band Trailer for stop motion comedy Hell and Back is trying way too hard

R rated films are extremely rare films, let alone stop motion animation, so I really wanted this first trailer for Hell and Back to succeed. It's certainly got the pedigree as it's handled by the same animation studio that wo...   0

Watch Fear the Walking Dead premiere's opening scene

Regardless of what you think of The Walking Dead, it's become this juggernaut of a thing. I'm not into much anything going on, yet I still park my butt every Sunday and watch it with everyone else. It's the closest we'll ever...   0

Box Office Numbers: Compton

I love when Hollywood realizes there's a huge audience out there for films like Straight Outta Compton. I worry about biopics all the time, and I was worried Compton would suffer the same generic fate. But thanks to its timel...   0

Listen to the Jem movie's first original song "Youngblood"

I'm rooting for Jem and the Holograms. Firstly because there's a good chance this film will inspire other films like it, and we need more girl power band films, and secondly, I don't feel like we've got a good look at the fi...   0

Frank Grillo teases a 'politically charged' Purge 3

Back before The Purge: Anarchy released, I was one of the loudest voices against it. While The Purge had a neat idea, it squandered it on a simple home invasion movie. We even started the #CrimeDay game on our old podcast and...   0
