Review: Wildling

As we all know, wildlings are people that live north of the wall that the Rangers, or Black Brothers like to kill. Oh, this isn't Game of Thrones? I just thought what with the 7 year wait it must be. In that case ... Wha...

Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Vin Diesel are going to fight

It’s obvious. Dwayne Johnson (top billing) and Vin Diesel are going to fight. For money. And I’m going to tell you why. In a recent Rolling Stone cover story Johnson explained that there’s beef between him and Diesel by no...

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: Social Animals

A documentary about teenagers using Instagram is probably not at the top of your must-see films list, even if you yourself are a teenager. Disclaimer: I am not a teenager. However, I do use Instagram. Almost entirely to take pictures of wha...

SXSW Review: Prospect

Prospect is marketed as a horror film. A sci-fi film too. Before I saw it, another SXSW attendee told me, "Yes, it's those things, but it's a western." OK. So genre-wise, it's a little bit of everything, sort of like a hobo scramble. Y...

SXSW Review: The Dawn Wall

Before outlining the merits of The Dawn Wall, of which there are many, I urge you to pursue seeing this on the big screen. Yosemite is of in itself an experience more real and immersive than most. Viewing two men attempt to climb its 3,000 ...

Review: Game Over, Man!

Die Hard doesn’t really need any sequels, but because Bruce Willis is still working, we’ll probably get at least one more anyway, in between Death Wish and Sixth Sense revivals. But, if the creators and ...

Cloak & Dagger trailer: nothing to do with Trump, Putin

If your comic book movies and television shows have been feeling a bit too grown up for you, enter Cloak & Dagger. Freeform's new Marvel show promises all the perks of a comic book series with all the jerks of a teenage drama. Oh boy. ...

Justice League stinks, has the worst B.O. in DCEU history

Surprising no one, with the official end of Justice League's box office run, it stands dead last in the DC Extended Universe tallies. Sad face, JL, sad face. Take a look at the global box office numbers: 1. Batman v Superman: Dawn...

SXSW Review: Never Goin' Back

Don't confuse these girls with these girls. Yeah. Those prime-time waitress-chicks don't know what broke is. Nor do their shenanigans really compare to those found in Never Goin' Back. In speaking about the film, before and after the scree...

SXSW Review: Summer '03

Apparently, coming of age tales aren’t going away. Go figure. Yes, the quintessential period of life that we all go through still holds powerful sway over our imaginations and, more importantly, our memories. We’ve been there do...

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: 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...

Review: Gringo

What happens if you attempt to take the street hoodlums from a Guy Ritchie flick and transport them to the world of corporate America? Or, conversely, if you try to take corporate America and dump it into the midst of a Guy Ritchie flick? T...

Review: They Remain

They Remain is a fine example of a film that nearly succeeds at being better than it is. Only touting two billed actors, William Jackson Harper and Rebecca Henderson (as simply Keith and Jessica), the acting is nonetheless superb. Comb...

Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...

The Jurassic Dead has trailer, zero originality

If you've ever wondered what you'd get if Jurassic World met The Walking Dead and they had a love child born of some sort of maniacal orgy with Duke Nukem, Resident Evil, The Toxic Avenger, and the special effects of Sharktopus, boy a...

Michael Fassbender to star in Hollywood Kung Fury sequel

Kung Fury, for the uninitiated, is a 2015 crowd-funded short film that pays homage to 80s cop and martial arts movies. It's solid gold shit, the best of bad movies, but coming in at only 31 minutes in length, it's never been able to call it...

Super Bowl TV spot for The Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix

Cloverfield was released in 2008 as a found footage alien/monster flick and it was pretty bad. No apologies. Then it had a "sequel" in 2016, 10 Cloverfield Lane, which didn't seem to have much to do with the original (avoiding sp...
