Review: The LEGO Movie: The Second Part

There are two (maybe three, but we'll get to that) sorts of people who are definitely going to like The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, kids, and people who like LEGOs. It’s not that it’s bad, cause it’s not. It's good...

Zach Snyder is making a zombie movie for Netflix

Zack Synder, two words recently synonymous with everything wrong with the DC Extended Universe—at least until Aquaman swam along and gave it all CPR. It’s easy to forget that prior to Batman v Superman: Dawn of J...

Netflix releases first full The Umbrella Academy trailer

If 43 women becoming pregnant and spontaneously giving birth in the course of one day doesn't get your attention, I'm not sure what will. Back at the New York Comic Con in October, Netflix delivered a teaser for The Umbrella Academy th...

Review: Wayne (Season 1)

[Note: This review is for the first half of Wayne, Season 1, all that was made available to us prior to the series debut.] Tell me if you’ve seen this movie before: a loner hero type with a moral compass that’s written in s...

Review: Holmes & Watson

There’s a scene in Holmes & Watson where Detective Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are getting in disguise. Sherlock puts on a fake mustache and is instantly unrecognizable to anyone else in the film. Then, Sherlock ...

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: The Favourite

Recently, I was listening to Paulo Coelho, author of The Alchemist, talk about the kinds of stories out there in the world. He said there are only four: a love story between two people, a love story between three people, the quest for ...

Review: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald

So let’s talk about alchemy, the magical art of turning one thing into another, or usually, crap into gold (alchemy, after all, plays a small role in the film). For Potter fanboys, this is (in many respects) another welcome view into ...

Review: Monster Party

Monster Party is a well-named film. Meaning it has a catchy title. It caught my interest. Especially when the film is described to be about a group of would-be thieves pretending to be caterers robbing a Malibu mansion, only they get m...

Contest: Win a Blu-Ray copy of Blackkklansman

I won't go on about this for too long, but it's nice to be able to give something away that's not only really good, but socially relevant. It's even better in that while Blackkklansman is based on a true story, it's a movie, it's ...

Review: Free Solo

It’s been a great year for climbing films. Where The Dawn Wall left off, with climbing megastars Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson free climbing the previously unclimbed route of El Capitan in Yosemite, Free Solo c...

Review: The Old Man and the Gun

In one of the least action-packed heist movies you’ll ever see, Robert Redford proves that at age 82, he’s still got it, and by it I mean his gun, of course. From the opening shot, The Old Man & the Gun feels authe...

New trailer for Halloween: Making a Murderer: Michael Myers

Universal recently released a second Halloween trailer, and frankly, if anything, it only adds to the hype created by the first. It begins with a true crime montage of the new Halloween mythos, i.e. the first film exists and now this film ...

Netflix is making Diablo into a level 99 animated series

Is the world ready for a Netflix Diablo animated series? Hasn’t Diablo stolen enough of our lives already, keeping us running levels and bosses all hours of night and day for those super unique magic items and rune...

Review: White Boy Rick

What’s shocking about White Boy Rick is not the lower-middle class family drama of 1980s eastside Detroit; it’s not the violence (relatively mild for a drug film); it’s not the depiction of a young girl becoming ...

Daredevil season 3 teaser trailer is holier than thou

Fair warning, this is literally the definition of teaser. It's short, doesn't really show much, and says a lot less. Except, well, Matt Murdoch, attorney at law, has finally decided he likes his latex-suited friend better than himself. Yip...

Review: BlacKkKlansman

Before this review gets serious, can we take a moment to appreciate the presence of the Inside Man thematic overture? So appropriate given the plot device and that Spike Lee directed the awesome 2006 heist film starring Denze...

Review: Equalizer 2

There’s a scene in Sony’s The Equalizer 2, the follow-up to 2014’s rather enjoyable original, wherein Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall breaks into a drug den, beats the holy hell out a few guys and pushes his w...

Netflix proudly displays their Package ... trailer

This actually doesn't appear to be a remake of the 1989 political thriller starring Gene Hackman (thank Zeus). This is more like Without a Paddle meets American Pie. Camping misadventure meets teen sex comedy. Will it work? It's 2 girls ca...

Review: Incredibles 2

There has been early chatter that Incredibles 2 relies on nostalgia to achieve its ends. Let me be perfectly clear, I understand that (1) we’re in the middle of a nostalgia driven resurgence of a great many properties come back to lif...

Review: Ocean's 8

It’s been eleven years since we had an Ocean’s franchise film. But consider this, we went 41 years before 2001’s Ocean’s 11 remade the original Rat Pack film. Maybe we should have waited another 30?

Ralph Breaks the Internet trailer repairs expectations

It's not even been three months since Ready Player One whelmed at the boxed office and already someone has come along and shown how that should have been done. Love it or hate it, the crux of RPO, outside of nostalgia, was t...

Andrew 'Rick Grimes' Lincoln leaving The Walking Dead

Citing an irreconcilable urge to shoot AMC in the head, Andrew Lincoln, aka Rick Grimes, star and lead of The Walking Dead is departing from the series. It's not clear why Lincoln is leaving the show, but what is known is that Lin...
