Review: Arrested Development - Season Five Part Two

When Netflix originally announced that it would be reviving Arrested Development for a fourth season, fans were ecstatic. The irreverent and off-beat comedy got screwed over by Fox and killed off long before it should have. While the show d...

Cannes 2019 will not host any Netflix films

Netflix may be an extremely popular service for watching films, but the old guard of critics and film institutions haven't taken to it. With the company making a push into producing exclusive films, a lot of walls are starting to be erected...

Review: Triple Threat

There's an unspoken rule in cinema that team-up films are typically bad. While Marvel seems to have bucked that trend, other studios still struggle with giving all of their leading stars proper screen time. You'll have a bunch of A-list act...

Tolkien's second trailer still looks quite formulaic

Last month, we got our first look at the upcoming J.R.R. Tolkien biopic titled Tolkien. Covering the formative years of the renowned author's life, I felt the teaser came off a bit formulaic and full of Hollywood cliches. This longer trail...

Detective Pikachu looks like an absolute blast

While I wasn't indifferent to the first Detective Pikachu trailer, I was a bit convinced it was going to be a cash grab effort. Getting Ryan Reynolds to play everyone's favorite rat was a good move, but the film did seem to be a bit generic...

Taron Egerton looks fabulous in Rocketman's newest trailer

Biopics on celebrities might be a bit old hat by now, but you have to admire the dedication to capturing Elton John's persona in Rocketman. Taron Egerton has the look down pat to the point that I'm almost convinced it's Sir Elton, himself. ...

It looks like Bond 25's script is getting reworked

James Bond's 25th outing has been hit with a ton of creative snags over the years. From Danny Boyle exiting the production to writers Pervis and Wade being hired, fired, and then rehired, it doesn't seem like a day goes by without something...

Sony's Mr. Rogers biopic gets a title and date

We've known for quite a while that Tom Hanks would be starring in a Mr. Rogers biopic. We even had the initial shot of him on the set in the iconic red sweater. What we didn't know is what the film would be called or when it would be releas...

Russian Doll is well worth your time

Russian Doll presents a tricky proposition for review. The series is loaded with themes, symbolism and constant mind games, but a lot of the enjoyment hinges on the mystery of it all. Even explaining simple details from the second or third ...

Kung Fu Hustle 2 is officially in the works

15 years ago, Stephen Chow unleashed his magnum opus Kung Fu Hustle upon the world. The film was a glorious send-up of kung fu cinema tropes with a dash of absurdist comedy for good measure. Featuring the likes of Chow in the starring role ...

Tolkien's teaser name drops a bunch of his novels

No one can deny that J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the most important authors that ever lived. He created rich fantasy worlds that would later be adapted into one of the most successful Hollywood franchises around. He also brought to light a gen...

Review: Cold Pursuit

Liam Neeson is a very accomplished actor with an extraordinary acting range and physical talent. It's a shame that ever since his appearance in 2008's Taken, he's basically been in the same role film after film. That is certainly underselli...

Another day, another Captain Marvel teaser

Seeing as how it has been half a week, Marvel figured we were getting antsy for some more Captain Marvel footage. While not revealing a whole lot new, this latest teaser does give us a glimpse of the action in the film. We also see Brie Lar...

Shaft's latest trailer shows old age can't stop a badass

Warner Bros. uploaded a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Shaft sequel and I'm surprised at how good it looks. I've never associated Shaft with being low quality or bad, but I don't remember the last film being that fondly remembered. Now...

Captain Marvel's latest teaser sounds like a techno song

The half-time show may have been a big wash last night, but Marvel picked up the slack with two teaser trailers. Alongside a look at Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel got a quick spot. Sporting a bunch of flashy shots, we hear the slogan th...

Toy Story 4's Super Bowl spot is a brief look at the film

Review: The Conners (Season One)

Spin-offs are hardly a new thing in the realm of television. There's an old quote that says something to the effect of, "A good show is measured by the quality of its spin-off." Who doesn't want to see the continued stories of fan-favorite ...

Jeff Bridges is teasing a return of 'The Dude'

It's been quite some time since The Big Lebowski hit theaters. Almost 21 years, actually. Obviously, enough time has passed for the main character, Jeff Bridges' "The Dude," to make a return. While a sequel is unlikely to happen, that hasn'...

Review: Carmen Sandiego (Season One)

It has been a great many years since the world has heard the name Carmen Sandiego. What was once a mega-popular edutainment franchise has quietly faded into obscurity with the rest of the '80s and '90s. You used to not be able to escape Car...

Review: On the Basis of Sex

Biopics have come a long way in the last 20 years. What used to be extreme dramatizations of a person’s life have given way to more thoughtful looks at the humanity behind powerful figures. At our very core we are all humans and while...

Review: If Beale Street Could Talk

It's an incredibly sad reality to accept that racism is still prevalent in 2019. While we've come a long way from the 20th century and things like the "3/5ths Compromise" or "Jim Crow Laws," this nation still treats minorities with prejudic...

Netflix's Carmen Sandiego doesn't feature Rockapella

Carmen Sandiego took the computer world by storm in the '90s but has basically disappeared since. While that sort of lives up to the name of her first title (Where in the World...), it seems like we've been long overdue for the return of th...

Review: South Park - Season 22
