See Fighting With My Family early and free

We all love Dwayne Johnson. Even the people who pretend not to like Dwayne Johnson secretly have shrines constructed to him in their houses. The world loves him. This is just a scientific fact. He's in Fighting With My Family, a movie based...

Review: 2050

"I don't make pizza," Dean Cain says alone in a warehouse next to the disembodied bust of a mannequin. He smiles and bites into an inexplicable apple. In a movie rife with lonely, delusional men, he might be the loneliest and most delusiona...

Starfish trailer catches the eye with surreal wonder

My favorite animal as a child was a wolf, because I was a little boy, and wolves are objectively the coolest thing a little boy could like. As an adult I still find them very rad, and films featuring wolves (or weird deer) tick up about ei...

Review: Alita: Battle Angel

You wouldn't guess by looking at it, but the production behind Alita: Battle Angel is the stuff of legends. Robert Rodriguez may be in the director's chair, but this movie has been James Cameron's baby for nearly two decades. Cameron has be...

Breaking Bad movie will land on Netflix first, is a sequel

If you're like me, and according to Netflix's reported numbers a lot of you are, then you pretty much watched all of Breaking Bad on Netflix. Honestly, it was a great way to watch a show that burns slower than that rash you've had for ...

Review: Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day, for me, was a movie that was crushed under expectations. What I wanted was a bloody slasher film that took Groundhog Day and turned it into an excuse for increasingly ridiculous death sequences. What I got was a P...

This year's Academy Awards will be a complete disaster

I love to hate the Oscars, but I also hate that I love them.  For the past several years I've had a tradition where I try to see as many Oscar Best Picture nominees as I can. I want to see which movies were considered the best of their...

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 ...

Contest: Win a Blu-ray copy of Arrow Video's Audition

You've got the part in today's contest for a Blu-ray copy of Arrow Video's release of Audition. I don't feel like Takashi Miike or any of his films really need a whole lot of words to describe them. If you've seen them, you know what's...

Danny Boyle's Yesterday gets its first trailer today

Danny Boyle is my kryptonite. He has a way of taking high concept material and making it relatable and magical. Even his bad films have a bit of something to them that make them special. Yesterday seems right in line with the director...

Review: Isn't It Romantic

The romantic comedy genre gets a lot of hate for playing into tropes and repeating itself over and over again. The thing is, it's been around so long now that making fun of those tropes and subverting them has become part of the genre in an...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Six (Part 2)

(This review is a continuation of my analysis of Les Miserables, Episode Six, Part 1.) The real turning point of episode six, for me, came about midway through. Although I emphasize that I know and love the plot of Les Mis, I genuinely di...

Dean Cain sells sex robots in trailer for 2050

If someone were going to sell me a sex robot, I'd hope it would be Dean Cain. Like any good Silicon Valley entrepreneur, he has a palpably greasy smarminess, but you kind of like it. That's sort of how I feel about all of 2050 from this tr...

Producing a follow up to 2015's stark Amazonian adventure Embrace of the Serpent must be an unenviable task. Where that film--the first Columbian production to be nominated at the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film--seeps in...

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...
