Jeff Bridges is teasing a return of 'The Dude'

It's been quite some time since The Big Lebowski hit theaters. Almost 21 years, actually. Obviously, enough time has passed for the main character, Jeff Bridges' "The Dude," to make a return. While a sequel is unlikely to happen, that hasn'...

Review: Bad Times at the El Royale

Genre deconstruction is awesome when done right. When it's done wrong it comes across as trite, like the filmmaker doesn't actually understand the very genre they want to take apart. However, when it's done right you get films that help def...

Review: Hell or High Water

Hollywood is a strange place. It bombards you with marketing materials 24/7, always promising the next best, biggest and brightest, only to deliver on best and/or brightest with less regularity than a really good Major League Baseball batti...

Rumor: Tron 3 to star production in the Fall

When TRON: Legacy was released it was announced that it was the launch of a new franchise, and usually when a film is highly successful and is part of a franchise the rest of the movies come out pretty quick (disregarding Avatar). Not ...

Review: Seventh Son

Many moons ago, at San Diego Comic Con 2013, my friend and I were sitting through all the panels in the infamous Hall H waiting to get to the Marvel movie panel. One of the panels we sat through showed some footage and brought out the cast ...

Review: The Giver

It's been more than 20 years since Lois Lowry's The Giver first hit shelves, and more than a decade since I first read it. It's one of those transformative books, and before the recent YA trend towards totalitarianism, the first e...

Trailer: R.I.P.D.

I was won over by R.I.P.D. very easily because its lead character is named Nick (and of course it features of one my boos, Mary Louise Parker). Now if all movies could feature a guy named Nick forevermore, I'd be totally cool with that. Th...

Trailer: R.I.P.D.

R.I.P.D. (which stands for Rest In Peace Department instead of Rest In Peace Death like I'd secretly hoped) is an adaptation of a graphic novel starring Ryan Reynolds as Nick (that's a cool name, bruh) who dies but joins the R.I.P.D. for 1...

Phillip Noyce might direct an adaptation of The Giver

I first read Lois Lowry's The Giver in sixth grade. As far as I remember, it was the first book I really cared about since it was also the first time I cared about what happened to the protagonist (which is more than I could say for th...

Lebowski cast reunion video

[Update: Well it happened, and it was amazing. Moderating an actual Q&A with the cast of The Big Lebowski proved nearly impossible for the guy charged with it. The actors could barely even hear each other, let alone the interviewer, wh...

True Grit breaks the $100 million barrier for Coen Brothers

The Coen Brothers have long been one of my favorite creative teams on Hollywood. I can't think of a film they've done that I haven't at least liked, if not adored. But despite all the great work they've done, their films' lifetime gross has...

Review: True Grit

Coen brothers movies can be hit or miss for some but the one thing they always are is memorable. It's worth reminding everyone up front that this is actually a remake of the 1969 version of True Grit that starred John Wayne, so it's hard fo...

Review: Tron: Legacy

Tron: Legacy is a hard movie to review overall. If I could review it in pieces then it would be easy to say the first third is amazing, the middle is okay, and the last third is bad. The characters that are actually used are good, but their...
