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...

 
 
 
 
Mrs. K Capsule Review photo

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...

Daniel Craig reportedly agrees to play Bond again

After Spectre came out Daniel Craig was not too kind to the chances of him ever playing Bond again. The role is an incredible amount of pressure and the shooting is often stressful so he had some choice words about returning. However, ...

Review: Baby Driver

Edgar Wright is a director with a specific vision, and it's led him to make some of the most genre-bending films in the past decade, and some of the funniest. It's also led him to leave Ant-Man. How do you bounce back from someone not letti...

Jon Watts most likely returning for Spider-Man: Homecoming 2

The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming was green lit the second Marvel and Sony decided to team up and bring Spidey into the MCU. I mean there's just no way it isn't going to make money and then the sequel will make money too, so why not...

Trailer: Watch Jackie Chan vs Pierce Brosnan in The Foreigner

Jackie Chan fights Pierce Brosnan. Yeah, you read that right. The Foreigner has Jackie Chan vs. an evil 90s James Bond (so basically Sean Bean?), and it looks like a solid revenge thriller. Rather than Chan playing his usual happy-go-lucky ...

Jurassic World 2 is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World's Twitter account--yes--it has a Twitter account--took to the internet to proclaim to the world, in 140 characters or less: "Hear ye! Hear ye! Our second act, not being the first, shall be titled and known, from this day fort...

Review: Transformers: The Last Knight

Transformers: The Last Knight is proof that Andy Kaufman is alive. When the first film arrived it was a classic Michael Bay film. Yes, it was dumb, and full of stupid, but it had awesome action, and Optimus Prime, and it worked. Since ...

Continental centric prequel to John Wick planned for TV

In what could only be described as an answer to my prayers, a prequel of sorts to the 2014 breakout hit John Wick is being planned for TV. The kicker? It's all centered around The Continental hotels where no assassin business of any sort ca...

47 Meters Down released a trailer a month ago: who knew?

Really, this movie is so little on the radar that its trailer got no PR and had been out for a month before I saw a spot watching the NBA Finals (widely known fact that basketball fans love shark movies nearly as much as they do seeing huge...

Black Panther teaser trailer drops and it's awesome

We got a brief look at Black Panther last night during game 4 of the NBA Finals and to sum it up, it looks amazing. Set in the technologically advanced but secluded African nation of Wakanda, Black Panther will tell the story of King T'Chal...
