Before I Fall Review photo

Review: Before I Fall

If you read my Top 15 Movies of 2016 list, then you'll know that at the very top (number 0) was The Edge of Seventeen. Also worth noting: my favorite movie of ever continues to be Joseph Kahn's Detention. From that, we can deduce the follow...

 
 
 
Terminator Genisys Review photo

Review: Terminator - Genisys

Based on the stupid title, initial plot description and Entertainment Weekly photos, I was a little more than skeptical about Terminator: Genisys. Even though the synopsis had many, many things I loved in it (time travel, Emilia Clarke, Arn...

 
 
Predestination Review photo

Review: Predestination

Predestination is one of those festival films that you have no idea exists but, when you finally see it, you wonder where it's been your entire life. I'm not the biggest time travel movie fan, nor do I really enjoy science fiction in genera...

SXSW Review: The Infinite Man

Usually the first movie you watch for a festival is a bit of a let down. You're super excited for the festival to kick off and you've hyped yourself up so much that almost nothing is going to stand up to your expectations of what that first...

 
 
About Time Review photo

Review: About Time

You probably haven't heard too much about About Time, and if you have you may have passed it off as another romantic comedy and simply forgotten about it. Hell, we've done a grand total of one post on the film and I'm not about to admit I d...

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 gets a 2014 release date

While Hot Tub Time Machine may have not been the best comedy, it performed well enough on home video to warrant a sequel. Production on the sequel began last Summer with John Cusack dropping out and Adam Scott filling in as Cusack's son. Sp...

Japan Cuts Review: Thermae Romae

The plot of Thermae Romae sounds like it was born from a drunken night of playing Mad Libs: a bath house architect from Ancient Rome time travels to modern-day Japan where he becomes enthralled by the designs of contemporary bath houses, ba...

Trailer: About Time

You know what the problem with The Time Travelers Wife was? It was so depressing. Time travel is supposed to be fun and about how you'd go back and be better in bed. Rachel McAdams clearly understood this which is why she signed on fo...

Anne Hathaway joins Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Since Matthew McConaughey was picked up to lead Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, it was only natural that the lead female be experiencing an explosion equal to the McConaughey. Following her big Oscar victory (and before she tames all the ...

MGM wants Hot Tub Time Machine 2 to exist for some reason

Despite being borderline awful (with a few admittedly funny bits from Craig Robinson), Hot Tub Time Machine performed well enough on "home video" that MGM is considering producing a sequel. Right now, talks are extremely early (so there's n...

UPDATE: Hugh Jackman is Wolverine for Days of Future Past

UPDATE: Hugh Jackman has technically been "in talks" this whole time (even if I was confident about it) about appearing in Days of Future Past, so he still could have backed out of it. Thankfully, Bryan Singer has confirmed via Twitter that...

Review: Looper

Time travel is a sticky wicket for movies, and really all stories in general. There’s just so many contradictions, loopholes and moving parts that things get complicated. By the end of a time travel movie you’re usually stuck as...

A Belgian female model named Hannelore Knuts is playing David Bowie in a film called Dave. (Unrelated: I wouldn't mind a David Bowie remake of the Kevin Kline film Dave.) For a little comparison, I've included the Criterion Collection cover...
