One night in 1993 Lorena Bobbitt's husband came home, raped her, then went to sleep. In the ultimate act of defiant revenge, Lorena grabbed a knife and--while he was still asleep--cut off his manhood. As if that wasn't enough, she got in he...

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...

The First Purge trailer lacks some color

The Purge series is, for me, one that gets continually better. The first squandered the premise as a by-the-numbers home invasion film. The second took the series to the streets and opened it wide up for future installments. And the third,...

Did you read our review for You Were Never Really Here and think, "Man, I want to see that movie." Well, you're in luck. We've got some passes to the film that can let you see it. It's full of good acting and death via hammer, which ar...

Review: Best F(r)iends (Volume 1)

This is a hard movie to review. It isn’t ‘good’, but I loved it. If you’re a fan of The Room, it retains that film’s oddball charm without it feeling forced. It barely makes sense and its slow pacing makes me w...

Y: The Last Man pilot ordered for FX

After languishing around for almost a decade, the popular comic Y: The Last Man might finally be getting the adaptation that has eluded it for years. On Thursday FX placed an order for a pilot based off of the popular comic by Brian K. Vaug...

Review: A Quiet Place

For the entire night after I saw A Quiet Place I thought every sound was too loud. I put something down and the noise it made stood out to me. Each footstep seemed to fall heavier than it should have. Opening a door was a cre...

I don't know how to feel about Infinity War

Marvel seems to be on a roll with its cinematic universe. Oh sure, it was always a massively popular franchise that raked in billions, but 2018 is a special year for Marvel. Not only did they have the release of Black Panther, which ha...

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...

J.J. Abrams had a different plan for Rey's lineage

Arguing about The Last Jedi is the Internet's most favorite thing to do. Half the conversations I have about any movie at all somehow turn into discussions on the film. It's getting kind of tiring... so lets pour a little lighter ...

The 300 Week 13: Nostalgia? More Like Meh-stolgia, Amiright?

Greetings, earthlings, welcome back to The 300, a recurring feature on my absurd attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be watching blockbusters, oldies, hidden gems, and festival films to experience the wide w...

See Truth or Dare early and free

Blumhouse is probably the best horror studio working so when they release a new horror film I'm interested. I suppose it's a little arogant to put the studio's name in the official title as they've done with Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, ...

Stephen King's The Stand coming to CBS as 10-part TV series

Last summer yielded some hits and misses in ye olde Stephen King adaptation department. Obviously, we had It. Andy Muschietti's adaptation was refreshing, well directed and ideated creatively, and--most importantly--a hit with aud...

The Terror Season 1 Recap: 'The Ladder'

Star Trek 4 has multiple scripts in the works

The Star Trek reboots haven't really had much of a direction. After wonderfully rebooting the franchise Abrams then went on to make a disappointing remake of Wrath of Khan. Thankfully Justin Lin came on board for the next movie and bro...

Review: You Were Never Really Here

This movie, on paper, sounded a bit like a 90’s action movie. A politician’s daughter gets kidnapped, and it’s up to ex-soldier-turned-hitman Joe to get her back at any cost. Fortunately Lynne Ramsey took this standard s...

What's your favorite Spielberg film?

As expected Ready Player One delivered a strong box office over the weekend. We're not talking Marvel-strong, but strong none the less. The film brought in $41.2 million over the Easter weekend, and dominated internationally with ...

Review: God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness

Reviewing faith-based movies can be tricky to say the least. I don't think I'm going to shock anyone by saying that faith-based movies can be very, very, very difficult to pull off correctly. Usually faith-based movies end up one of two way...

How has no one made a killer gun movie yet?

The upcoming release of Vampire Clay, a movie in which possessed clay comes to life with flesh eating gusto, has had me wondering about movies in which inanimate objects kill people. We have dolls, cars, tomatoes, refrigerators, beds, video...

Review: Ready Player One

Ethan Hawke is a reverend on the brink in First Reformed

Crisis of faith movies are a bit of a common thing in cinema, so initially when I saw that Ethan Hawke was going to play a reverend coming to grips with his beliefs I was ready to write it off, but then when I saw that Paul Schrader was wri...

Vampire Clay trailer showcases the best kind of weird

We got movies with killer tomatoes. We got movies with killer cars. We got movies with killer vaginas and penises. We got movies with killer hair extensions. The film industry has no shortage of creators saying, "I bet this could kill you,"...
