Review: Mortal Engines

Post-apocalyptic films have enjoyed a long run, and apparently, that’s not changing anytime soon. We humans are concerned about the future; what’s it going to be like? Will cars fly? Will my Nike’s self-lace? Will people b...

Review: Roma

Thinking about the opening shot of Roma brings tears to my eyes. The centerpiece film at the 2018 New York Film Festival is a masterful display of Alfonso Cuaron’s craft, and how the magic of filmmaking can situate the mind in a speci...

Review: Mary Poppins Returns

We're in an era of sequels and remakes, and with 2018 being the biggest box office year in the history of cinema we're going to be getting plenty more. If a studio can bring something old and beloved back they're probably going to do it. It...

Review: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

The story of Spider-Man has been told a number of times through different mediums, but animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may be the first Spidey movie to admit it. Not only does this movie own that fact, but it makes this the ...

Review: Backtrace

I woke up at 11:30 a.m. this morning to my phone alarm, before setting it to snooze and drifting back to sleep for another half-hour. Just after noon, I crawled like caterpillar out of bed, my feet hitting the cold floors of my apartment. M...

After Netflix announced a revival of 80's-childhood icon Carmen Sandiego was coming, we finally got our first look at her this week. It's a whole new Carmen for a new generation I guess. While she still sports the iconic red trench coat and...

The post-apocalyptic novel and video game Metro 2033 had an adaptation planned for next year, but now it's dead like all of us in that world. Dmitry Glukhovsky, the original author of the novel series who leased the rights to MGM in 2016 t...

See Second Act early and free

Sometimes good movies come out, and sometimes Second Act comes out.  Look, I haven't seen the movie yet so it could be a big, wonderful surprise that just lights up the comedy world this holiday season, but it sure doesn't look li...

Get into the action with this contest: Win a copy of Robert Rodriguez's The Limit. Did you know they started making movies in VR? I had no idea. It's kind of cool, and also a little intimidating. What if everything goes to VR, and the ...

Doctor Who won't return for a full series until 2020

Broadcast dates in the age of apparent "prestige" television are never as consistent as it used to be. Enter the BBC's Doctor Who, which just wrapped up series/season 11. While Whovians (great fanbase name, by the way) can rest easy kn...

Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer revels in monsters

I'm sure there's some other stuff going on in Godzilla: King of Monsters because WB is building out a whole cinematic universe thing and that requires humans to be in it and their underlying Monarch subplot to continue, but man does this m...

See Vice early and free

Vice is definitely one of the best movies of the year. It's both darkly comical (in that you can only laugh at how depressing it is), and wonderfully made. Christian Bale's Dick Cheney has to be seen to be believed, and the r...

Kevin Hart out as Oscar host over decade old tweets

I have never been a fan of Kevin Hart. It's not that I don't like the guy or think that he's annoying, but it's simply because I don't find him funny. I acknowledge that humor is subjective, so when a friend of mine tells me that he finds K...

Review: Mowgli

Review: Anna and the Apocalypse

I don't think I will ever be able to explain how Anna and the Apocalypse exists. Someone had to have woken up one day and decided "Gee, you know what the world needs? A musical about the zombie apocalypse set during Christmas!" Just by...
