Review: The Foreigner

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Jackie Chan in US cinemas, especially as a lead, and I for one, am happy to have him back. Think on it for a moment:  Jackie Chan is still one the world’s biggest stars (currently ra...

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I think I open up every post I write about the original Kingsman movie like this, but what an effing surprise it was. In a rare occurrence I didn't catch the flick in theaters, and despite the positive reviews I still thought it l...

Jumanji: Welcometo the Jungle has 2nd trailer

The debut of a second official trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, let optimism shine it's goofy face on my otherwise dour, cynical visage. Was that a slight homage to the Robin Williams Jumanji of old? Did they just acknowledge its...

'John Wick: Chapter Three' just got a release date

In an era of derivative, bland action movies, the John Wick series has been fighting against the tide with excellent fights, and minimal BS. While the second film was less well received than the series first outing, John Wick: Chapter ...

Review: American Assassin

There was a time back in the 90s and early 2000s when an American spy or hero or killer guy in a movie could go over to another country, kill all the terrorist bad guys, come back and the audience would think, "Yup, that was OK to do." But ...

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

It's seems a little unfair that a bunch of out of shape older actors are currently making old-man action movies in the Taken vein when Jackie Chan is an old man who can actually do all that stuff. Luckily we're getting The Foreigner, ...

Liam Neeson is on a train in first The Commuter trailer

Liam Neeson in a pickle with some evil bad guys after him. This is basically a genre unto itself, and Neeson is happy to scoop up the money and spit them out it seems. The next installment is The Commuter, which is being directed by J...

The Wasp's new costume is kinda ass

You remember the end of Ant-Man, right? There's a shot of The Wasp's costume with Evangeline Lily's character, Hope van Dyne, staring at it, promising her inclusion as a hero in the inevitable sequel. It's meant to be a captivating moment, ...

Bad Boys 3 probably really actually not going to happen

Three years ago almost to the day Martin Lawrence announced that Bad Boys 3 was a thing, and that it was actually going to happen for real. Well, it turns out that it wasn't so "for real," and that, as with all other attempts to get th...

Review: The Hitman's Bodyguard

It's August, and that means we're entering the second span of doldrums for movie releases for the year (the first being the beginning of the year). From now until late September, when all of the horror films start rolling in, we get studio ...

New Thor: Ragnarok Trailer teases Doctor Strange

If you saw our coverage of SDCC two months back, you may have seen this incredible trailer for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and thought to yourself, "Jeeeez that looks like a hell of a lot of fun!" I wouldn't blame you, it's what we were all...

Your Bad Movie Night Guide, Vol. 4: Tango & Cash

Imagine a time when movie heroes were heroes not for being pretty, metrosexual types capable of playing a broad range of characters aptly displaying a broad spectrum of emotions, but because they had big muscles, or knew kung-fu. The year i...

Karl Urban is open to starring in the Dredd TV Series

Back in 2012, Dredd was the sleeper-hit action movie none of us knew we wanted. Sure, it seemed like just another phoned in action-flick, but director Pete Travis took the campy premise to amazing heights with solid execution (heh) of the u...

Eli Roths Death Wish trailer makes me wish for death

I unabashedly love the Death Wish series. It were hokey, over the top and I have fond memories of watching it with my college roommate one weekend when AMC played them all back to back years ago. So when I heard Eli Roth was going to direct...

Review: Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde looks like one of those scrappy little action flicks that has a slow burn of success. Think of things like John Wick or Taken. Films that succeed because they're cram full of action and their plots actually...

James Cameron is looking to launch a new Terminator trilogy

So the Terminator franchise reboot hasn't gone as planned... either time. Obviously the franchise is still considered a moneymaker for whatever reason, but no one seems to be able to get a successful film out of it anymore. Actually, w...

Review: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Luc Besson may not be a household name, but ask any fan of film who he is and you’ll be swept into a drawn-out lauding of his movies. Besson directed both The Fifth Element and Leon: The Professional, both of which found huge critical...

NYAFF Capsule Review: Mrs. K

The problems with Mrs. K can, I think, be summed up by the bizarreness of its soundtrack, an eclectic mix that had me thinking in equal measure about the scores of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, Blade Runner, and A Serbian Film....

Watch the opening car chase from Edgar Wright's Baby Driver

Baby Driver was pretty good. Our own Matthew Razak liked Edgar Wright's latest film, though acknowledged in his review that the film's technical wizardry doesn't quite overcome the flawed story and sometimes inconsistent characters. I'm mor...

The Dark Tower receives another trailer, still has a tower

Okay, no, Andy Serkis is not actually playing the tower, much to my own disappointment. Though, I'm sure if he did, there'd be some article praising how he gave the tower some much-deserved characterization, and truly brought the role to li...
