Review: Snowden

I never saw Citizenfour, the documentary Laura Poitras made about Edward Snowden. I thought about it a lot and certainly meant to, but it was never really a priority for me. This was, in large part, because I followed along with the Snowden...

Review: The Night Before

When Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produce a film, you pretty much know what you're going to get. As the duo have made their way through the romantic comedy, high school buddy film, stoner comedy, old Hollywood existential, superhero story, ...

It's impossible to watch The Walk without thinking about James Marsh's 2008 film Man on Wire. The Academy Award-winning documentary chronicled French tightrope walker Philippe Petit's high-wire act between the towers of the World Trade Cent...

See The Walk early and free

We may not have dug The Walk all that much when Hubert got a chance to see it at NYFF, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be seen on the big screen. The movie was made specifically for 3D IMAX so that the harrowing effect of walking ac...

First trailer for The Walk starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Films based on a true stories are always hit or miss, but I'm holding out some hope for Robert Zemeckis' latest project The Walk, based on Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) tightrope walk between the World Trade Center's two towers in ...

Review: Sin City - A Dame to Kill For

Sin City has always had a special place in my heart. Way back in 2005, when the first film came out, I was in my senior yearo f high school, taking Film as Art. One of our assignments was to write a paper on a film we see in theaters, ...

Comic-Con trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Robert Rodriguez's recent work has been criticized for being more style over substance, and this trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For showed off during San Diego Comic-Con isn't helping matters. While it plays like an extended music vi...

Rogen and Gordon-Levitt coming back together for Xmas

The heavily under appreciated 50/50 was probably one of Seth Rogen's best performances and really landed Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an entirely awesome human being in every way for me. It's exciting to hear that they'll be getting back to...

Don Jon Review photo

Review: Don Jon

Our rabid consumption of media informs our lives and habits as much as our upbringing. For Jon, that media obsession is porn. When he isn't debating what number to rate a girl at the club, he is masturbating three times a day. Or five. Or e...

JGL and Channing Tatum wanted for Guys and Dolls remake

New Looper images throw me in a loop

Flixist Awards 2011: Best Actor
