If you need to google a movie to understand it did it fail?

Darren Aronofsky's mother! released this weekend and it struggled pretty hard. That might be because the entire thing is a biblical allegory art house film that is somehow both complicated and blunt at the same time. People came o...

Review: Mother!

Would you like to play a game? Well, it’s a puzzle really. It starts with Mother and Him. They are set in their home, and set upon by strangers. Only one at first, but then two, four, a grieving, boisterous entourage, a cult. All of c...

Our first look at the new Hellboy

Hellboy is coming back and from everything we know so far it's looking  looking really dark, very bloody, and bit less campy than Guillermo Del Toro's take on the indie comic favorite. Also, no Ron Perlman, which is sad, but ...

The Foreigner has a new trailer with foreigners in it

See Kingsman: The Golden Circle early and free

I couldn't be more hyped for more Kingsman, which is odd because I was incredibly unhyped for the first one until I saw it. Hopefully they're able to carry on the same tongue-in-cheek spy film that the first was without jumping the shark. I...

Summer is over. We're entering the weekend past Labor Day. And yet, officially, technically (sorry everyone back in school), we've still got two more weeks. Lucky us. Lucky that now, when someone comes a knocking slinging nonsense like, "Th...

Palme D'Or winning The Square coming to theaters October 27th

It is unfortunate that over here in America we rarely get to see entrants in the Cannes Film Festival in theaters outside of the yearly American entries and if we're lucky the Palme D'Or or Un Certain Regard winners. I guess this year we ca...

'The Magic School Bus Rides Again' has a weak-ass trailer now

Along with most of my fellow friends and classmates, I grew up in the culture of the late 90's. It was a marvelous time filled with Rollerblades, Pizza, and Nintendo; almost everything a kid needs to have a good time. Almost. Kids are natur...
