Margot Robbie's Terminal gets a teaser

Margot Robbie is killing it right now, and from the looks of it she's going to kill it again with the weird, trippy and utterly noir Terminal. The film got its first teaser trailer today and it doesn't show much, but it does seem both cree...


The new Deadpool 2 trailer unites the X-Force

Not to be too upstaged by Avengers: Infinity War's latest trailer, Fox has released a new look at the wacky and madcap Deadpool 2. Previous looks at the movie have mainly been skits of sorts with some brief gl...

Shazam! movie logo announces DCEU still exists

First trailer for Tag has plenty of touching

That cast, though. I think Tag is kind of a silly concept for a movie even if it is based on a true story of a bunch of guys who just played tag for a month every year. But the cast. The cast makes this movie entirely worthwhile. You've ju...


Ricky and Morty season 4 hasn't even been ordered yet

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I say that Rick and Morty is one of the best shows that is currently airing on Adult Swim. Between its pitch black sense of humor and its wild adventures, the show hit a sweet spot for a lot of people and ...


See Midnight Sun early and free

The plot description for Midnight Sun has the word tear-jerker in it, so I think you know what you're getting here. A young adult romance full of challenges and possible death, its in line with a spate of these kinds of films that have...


Review: Ramen Heads

When I sat down to watch Ramen Heads, based on the trailer and synopsis, I was anticipating a documentary on a famous ramen chef and his technique and philosophy akin to Jiro Dreams of Sushi. What I got was...half that. It mostly focus...

Review: Tomb Raider

Review: Jessica Jones season 2

Fun fact: I watched all of the first season of Jessica Jones in a day. At the time, I was living in England and was so incredibly bored that I order some British pizza (it's just as disappointing as it sounds), camped out on a couch, and wa...


Nicolas Cage finally plays Superman after 20+ years

Probably not quite what Cage was hoping for, but he'll soon provide the Man of Steel's voice in the forthcoming Teen Titans Go! To the Movies animated film. Around 1996-1997, Cage was cast in titular role for the Tim Burton directed, Kevin ...


Danny Boyle says he is directing the next James Bond film

If you haven't been paying attention to the rumors this might come as a bit of a surprise, but Danny Boyle has confirmed that he will be co-writing and directing the next James Bond film. There have been rumors swirling about this for a whi...


SXSW Review: Family

I sat next to a juggalo during my screening of Family. That may tell you all you need to know about the film, but if it does you'd be missing out on the core message of the movie. Whether the message was delivered in any meaningful way is f...

Hello, friendos, and welcome back to The 300, a recurring feature on my harebrained attempt to see 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be watching new releases, classics, hidden gems, and festival films to experience the wid...

Review: Number 37

Number 37 is the first feature from South African director Nosipho Dumisa, which uses Hitchcock's Rear Window as a skeleton around which it wraps a thriller of drug dealers and debts. Randal (Irshaad Ally) has been left paralyzed ...


SXSW Review: The Legacy of a Whitetail Dear Hunter

The Legacy of a Whitetail Dear Hunter was shelved for a few years after it was shot. Director Jody Hill just couldn’t get distribution for it despite the film featuring Josh Brolin and Danny McBride, and the creative team being the ...


SXSW Review: The World Before Your Feet

In many ways a two-man collaboration between filmmaker Jeremy Workman and subject Matt Green, The World Before Your Feet is an understated documentary that details Green's efforts to walk every street in New York City's five boroughs. ...


SXSW Review: Blockers

Prom! That magical experience of near mythical importance for high school students. You'll dance. You'll drink. And then, you'll definitely lose your virginity, because only losers haven't after prom has come and gone. The tradition begun w...


SXSW Review: The Unicorn

The romantic comedy is a genre that will never die, but often seems like it should as trite and redundant films are released over and over again. Thankfully, every once in a while something a bit more charming comes along and makes you enjo...


SXSW Review: A Vigilante

A few weeks ago I had the displeasure to sit through Eli Roth's Death Wish, a revenge thriller that sucked for many reasons, but most importantly because you didn't really care about the revenge at all. There was no emotional push to g...


SXSW Review: Wobble Palace

Wobble Palace, as you may guess if you know director Eugene Kotlyarenko's other work, is a bit uncomfortable, a bit weird, and insanely satirical. It's almost fantastical in its presentation and yet simultaneously grounded in a harsh realty...


SXSW: Barry

Veteran comedic actor Bill Hader and writer-producer Alec Berg knew they had to develop a series for HBO, but didn't know what. While bouncing ideas off each other, Bill said, "What if I was a hitman." Alec was skeptical. "No, it'd be me, B...


SXSW Review: Unfriended: Dark Web

Blumhouse is on a roll right now. They're making some of the biggest hits in horror, and, of course just pulled in an Academy Award nomination for Get Out. That's why I was really excited when an untitled Blumhouse horror film was...
