Negative Glass reviews made M. Night Shyamalan cry

Ah, remember Glass? I wasn't too big a fan of it, as you can tell from my review of the film for this very website. Apparently, I contributed to writer-director M. Night Shyamalan getting quite upset, because the filmmaker recently adm...

Tigers Are Not Afraid is coming to Shudder, please watch it

Tigers Are Not Afraid is the best thing I saw at Fantasia last year, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since. Its decayed Gothic beauty, the use of a cartel as its supernatural force, its monkey's paw twist on the power of wishes, and...

Mark Hamill says three measly words in Child's Play trailer

"Good night, Andy." That's it. That's all we get out of Mark Hamill (at the very end of the trailer, of course) after this stupidly long succession of teases following the announcement that he would be voicing the serial-killing doll for t...

The 2019 Cannes Film Festival announces its lineup

Dark Phoenix looks cliched as hell in its final trailer

Fox has unleashed the final trailer for Dark Phoenix and I'm not really sure what to say. Maybe the footage used for the trailer was cut to look cliche, but this is some really sloppy writing. How many stories are we going to get where "go...

The Netflix-produced Witcher series rides this Fall

Do we need a live-action representation of The Witcher? If it's done with good intentions and a passion for the source, then sure, why not? Kids love their medieval violence (what's that game show they all love?) and we certainly never have...

Contest: Win a Blu-ray copy of Glass

Get into today's contest to win a free Blu-ray copy of Glass! M. Knight Shyamalan's films have always been pretty divisive. That one about nature attacking Mark Wahlberg is pretty blech, but like most people I like The Sixth Sense. Mos...

Imagine you are a 15-year-old girl who has never known anything but the woods. You have your father there, who is both a teacher and a trainer. You train endlessly for an unknown purpose and live a simple life. What if that simple life is u...

Hellboy and Missing Link flop hard in this mid-April slump

Surprising no one, all of the bad publicity and reviews took its toll on Hellboy. With Shazam! having a surprising amount of strength going for it, it was the movie to beat for all of this week's new releases. Unfortunately, Hellboy ca...

Review: Mary Magdalene

There seems to be a common trend with a lot of biblical films. They have extreme reverence for their source material but tend to lack substance and depth. While there are obviously exceptions to that, I can't really name a lot of religious ...

Review: Missing Link

Anyone with eyeballs needs to see every Laika movie, no questions asked. After personally being enlightened with Paranorman, there was no question about the studio's status as unparalleled stop-motion masters. Even more exciting is the vari...
