New Venom trailer is better than last

Remember that first Venom trailer? The one without Venom in it, that looked awful? I sure do. I've been a fan of Spider man and his cavalcade of villains for a long time, but I was in no way excited by Sony's first showing of their attempt ...

Review: Super Troopers 2

It's been 16 years since Broken Lizard exploded onto the scene with their stoner-comedy Super Troopers. Ever since then, they have had ups and downs in terms of their movies but for the most part, their comedy has always tickled me in jus...

Review: I Feel Pretty

You may or may not be a fan of Amy Schumer. I am. I find a lot of her humor insightful and hilarious. Her stand up special kind of sucked, though, and she's 50/50 on headlining movies so I was hoping to get back into enjoying her comedy wit...

Mindhunter Season 2 has a slew of great directors behind it

Last year's Mindhunter was a thrilling and stylish look into the life of serial killers and the people who hunt them. David Fincher's involvement was large part of that, giving each monologue and each scene appropriate weight through his st...

David Leitch signs on to direct The Division movie

We're getting closer, everyone. Rampage threatened to be mildly entertaining, and that means we're just a few steps away from an actually good video game movie. It's gonna happen, and maybe it'll be The Division that doe...

Review: Acrimony

I hate to say it, but the trailer and poster for Acrimony tricked me into thinking it might be better than it is. Congratulations, Tyler Perry marketing team. I’m going to attempt to untangle what exactly the point of Acrimony ...

Review: Ghost Stories

I was so hyped for this. The trailer looked fantastic, and I'm a sucker for anthology horror. Even if the quality of the shorts was uneven, I enjoyed the original V/H/S's use of a frame story. This movie’s frame story sounded even b...

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer is bananas

I wasn't a huge fan of Jurassic World when it first came out, but I can tell you that I liked that fact that it ended with t-rex, a raptor, and a genetically modified dino fighting it out in an obvious homage to early Hollywood m...

Cathy Yan to direct Margot Robbie in Harley Quinn-led film

Review: Wildling

Welcome to the horror Renaissance!

When it comes to horror movies, it's very hard to impress me. I'm not saying that I'm a horror movie snob, but at a certain point, horror just wasn't scary anymore. I wasn't being unsettled by a gruesome monster, or unnerved at a creepy hal...

Incredible 2 has an incredibles new trailer

People are pretty amped up for Incredibles 2, and its pretty easy to see why. Pixar almost never delivers a bad movie, and they seem pretty immune to sequalitis (the disease that makes most sequels worse than the first film). In fact aside...

See I Feel Pretty Early and free

I Feel Pretty is the latest comedy from Amy Schumer, who you either find funny or not funny. I find her pretty funny for the most part, and if you agree with that than you'll probably want to grab some tickets for a screening to the mo...

Review: Blumhouse's Truth or Dare

American Animals trailer shows off a fratboy heist

The Meg trailer

As a kid, I always enjoyed learning facts about prehistoric animals. Things like the length of a Brontosaurus (70 feet), how fast a raptor could run (40 mph), or the number of teeth a T-Rex had (50). It felt good to have that knowledge pac...
