Second trailer for Tomb Raider movie expands on the plot

When the first trailer for Tomb Raider hit I was, shall we say, less than enthusiastic about it. While the film does star the awesome Alicia Vikander it also looked kind of like a hot mess of scenes from the game clumsily stuck t...

Best look at Ant-Man and the Wasp in... Ant-Man and the Wasp

I think of all the Marvel films Ant-Man is the least appreciated. The studio made a fun little heist movie that sat outside most of the continuity of the universe, and as such it didn't generate quite as much hype as other films. Hopef...

See Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle early and free

I'm actually quite looking for to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Not really because I'm a big fan whatever franchise they're trying to make out of it, but because I like the rock doing dumb movies. He's just good at it and hopefully he's g...

Check out the first teaser for The Incredibles 2

There isn't much to go on in this teaser, honestly, but it does confirm a few things. Baby Jack Jack has a couple of new powers, and the Incredibles theme still pulls at my heartstrings the way it used too.  The sequel will ...

Danger Girl movie rights scooped up

I'd like to tell you that I got into the Danger Girl comics when they first came out because I was into their tongue-in-cheek take on the James Bond spy film genre. But I was a teenage boy in the 90s so I think we all know why I picked...

First Rampage movie images punch their way into existence

The Rampage games were never anything that special. Basically the same thing level after level for more than 100 levels with slight variations as things progressed through the years. But they hold a special place in my heart becau...

Review: Thor: Ragnarok

While I like the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall, I've never been that interested in the Thor movies. I love the Walt Simonson run on The Mighty Thor, but the previous live-action films featuring the God of Thunder never really appealed t...

Review: Blade of the Immortal

Takashi Miike is, in the purest sense of the word, prolific. He has dedicated himself to churning out film after film, year in and year out, often with wildly differing levels of success. Sure, it’s easy to look at fantastic works lik...

A meteorologist reviews Geostorm

Whenever you see a new action movie coming out that defies the laws of physics or sense you are always told to "check your brain at the door." Now for most movies I can do this, I'll watch a giant green man who got his powers from exposure ...

Review: The Foreigner

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...

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
