A chapter of my childhood was just partially closed forever. The man who helped bring The Princess Bride to life on the silver screen, William Goldman, died today at the age of 87. This movie gave me so many feels from enjoyment to sadness....

Pedro Pascal, know for portraying Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones, will star in Disney's new Star Wars television show, The Mandalorian. The slow drip of information on The Mandalorian has been agonizing, but promising. We know Jon Favrea...

Review: Instant Family

I honestly got stuck with Instantly Family to review. Sometimes as EIC you gotta take a bullet for the team and let someone else review the big Harry Potter film (review coming later) or whatever. I was all set to take t...

Review: Widows

A fusion of stark brutality, underhand crimes and complex systems of political and personal power, Widows is far more just than an awards-season thriller, but a sharp and forceful indictment of corruption on every level of society. I...

Lee Childs say Jack Reacher is becoming a streaming TV series

I thoroughly enjoyed both Jack Reacher movies for the 90s throwback action that they were. Low on budget, but not on determination, the movies cast Cruise in the arrogant superman he plays best and basically just let him kick butt the entir...

The 300 Week 45: Almost There... Almost There...

Hey there, howlers, and welcome back to The 300, my big-eyed, big-eared, sharp-toothed attempt to see 300 movies in theaters in 2018. I’ll be watching new releases, classics, hidden gems, and festival films to experience the wide worl...

I forgot that Alita: Battle Angel still exists

It's weird that I keep on forgetting about Alita: Battle Angel. At the beginning of the year, I couldn't wait to get the chance to see this movie for a whole host of reasons. Not only has it been a passion project for James Cameron an...

See Creed II early and free

I'm not sure what to think about Creed II. Is it going to be the dramatic and stunningly good drama that Creed was or are we going full Rocky III here and just turning the franchise into boxing ridiculousness. It's hard to tell, a...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 13

After a decade of airing, it takes a very special combination of acting, writing and comedic timing to keep a sitcom going. For most of these shows, there seems to be a specific season you can point to where the quality went on a downward t...

Review: They Shall Not Grow Old

Coinciding with the centenary of the Great War, I think it’s safe to say that this documentary is a once in a lifetime achievement, and Peter Jackson does not disappoint. The result of hundreds of hours of research in conjunction wi...

New Captive State trailer warns of us of their lies

One of the longest traditions of science fiction is its incredible ability to address social issues and concepts without directly being about the specific social issues of the day. Captive State is very clearly a science fiction ...

Review: The Long Dumb Road

I've always loved the road trip genre of film, it's such a nice metaphor for character growth and there are usually some very scenic second unit shots that fulfill my wanderlust. There is comfort in these films as they usually all follow th...

Review: Overlord

For the longest time, I didn't think that Overlord would release. Not because it was in production hell or anything like that, but because it was a part of J. J. Abrams Cloverfield universe and those movies can be announ...

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander should not be a superheroine. While the character is resourceful and strong, physically, mentally, and morally, The Girl in the Spider's Web turned her into some sort of action movie secret agent-type. As satisfying as...

Review: The Grinch

Believe it or not, prior to my screening I wasn't paying that much attention to Illumination's The Grinch, but from what I did see I thought the film was going to try something a little new with the character and focus on how he became...

Taron "Eggsy"erton won't appear in third Kingsman film

I've only briefly touched upon my utter adoration for Taron Egerton (and Ansel Elgort) when I reviewed Billionaire Boy's Club, but please dear reader do not mistake: I have the biggest man crush on this beautiful Welshman. He knocked his pe...
