Review: Men in Black: International

As a franchise, Men in Black feels like it has justified its continued existence within the sphere of pop culture. Launching hot off the heels of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith was a star, and Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K was the gruff...

Review: Dark Phoenix

The storm of production woes and legal hand-overs surrounding Dark Phoenix, the latest and final entry in this cinematic iteration of Marvel's X-Men, has no doubt swayed the public in one way or another. Some of us were calling it quits bef...

Review: Godzilla: King of the Monsters

In the first minutes of Godzilla: King of the Monsters we're transported back to 2014, to replay events from that year's Godzilla. San Francisco lies in ruins, and we're set on course for the story of this new monster saga. Right off the ba...

Rambo Last Blood's trailer bleeds the franchise dry

Sylvester Stallone has been on a kick recently of tackling his old, iconic roles in new and interesting ways. I never realized I wanted to see a Rocky movie where Rocky became Mickey, but that's exactly what Creed delivered in spades. It w...

Review: Rondo

Rondo is a weird blend of half-intentional and half-probably-not-intentional weirdness, humor, and spectacle. Sometimes actors forget to act and just say their lines. Sometimes they gleefully nosh the scenery like it's made of cotton candy....

Deep Analysis: Mad Max: Fury Road

Action films can be so difficult to discuss, and even before that they’re difficult to qualify. You think of Die Hard and Commando, and clearly those fit our notion of what an “action movie” is. But is Heat an action movie...

Terminator: Dark Fate goes hunting in first trailer

Well, if you're going to reignite excitement over a franchise that I'd struggle to still call a franchise at this point this trailer is the way to do it. Taking the cliche tactic of playing a slow, dramatic cover of a song over an action m...

The cast is set for Christopher Nolan's Tenet

Though details are still sparse, I think for many even the smallest morsel of information on a new Christopher Nolan film is something we can all at least dream of getting excited about. Today brings news of new additions to the cast of the...

Review: Avengement

Avengement is an objectively dumb title. Yes, it's a correct description of what occurs in the film (dude gets mad vengeance), but it's not a word anyone really uses, and it's bound to make this flick dissolve at least somewhat into the bac...

The inevitable John Wick 4 has been confirmed

If you've seen the end of John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum then you know that it wasn't really the end. In fact, I'd argue the film was much akin to Infinity War in that it set up the greater conflict to come and felt more like ...

Review: John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

When John Wick was first announced it wasn't that clear that the franchise would be anything special. After all, Keanu Reeves had made plenty of action films before that of varying quality, and elderly action hero coming back for reven...

Fox has announced that its TV series Lethal Weapon, an adaptation of the once-popular film franchise, has been cancelled. After a tumultuous first two seasons led to the firing of co-lead Clayne Crawford, the show started a troubled third s...

Batwoman teaser is all about dat cape

Normally I'd open up with some quip about the most recent happenings in the CW's Arrowverse (do we have to rename it now), but I am so far behind on all the shows that I barely know what's going on. I mean, I know that Batwoman is joining ...

Review: Redcon-1

The premise for Redcon-1 is solid: A super soldier serum meant to mutate ordinary fighters into killing machines is carried by an escaped prisoner into the general population. It spreads as a zombie virus and gives any infected with previou...

Deep Analysis: Fearless

Over here in America, martial arts films don't tend to be well received. While there are a few exceptions to that statement, you typically don't hear people bringing up the films of Jackie Chan aside from Legend of Drunken Master or any of ...

Review: Shadow

Zhang Yimou’s Shadow is a movie I need to see twice. How fitting. A second watch won’t just help me understand the complicated palace intrigue or enjoy the visual poetry that plays out in stunning tableaux; the images seem rende...

Stallone shares some behind-the-scenes footage of Rambo V

While much of Rambo V: Last Blood is still shrouded in mystery, star Sylvester Stallone has recently shared some behind-the-scenes footage from the set of the film. It certainly shows Stallone doing some Rambo-like things, including shooti...

The Cage will continue to unleash his rage this August, as RLJE has announced they'll be releasing his mobster revenge flick A Score to Settle this summer. This is the same pairing that brought us Mandy, so it has to be good, right?
