Stop talking about Oscar snubs

Earlier today, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced the nominees for the 92nd Academy Awards. With a huge swath of movies nominated for a variety of awards, it's bound to be a time of celebration and praise for the film...

Review: Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems is so many things, all at the same time. On its surface one can appreciate the breakneck pacing and the terrific ramblings of Adam Sandler's performance; the pulsing score and the breathtaking dynamism of its camerawork. Dig a li...

The Decade Decathlon: 2011

Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. I'm a tired of using the phrase "greatest of all t...

Review: The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

All happy families are the same; each unhappy family is only sort of the same, and will eventually wind up in their own movie or book. Take the Meyerowitzes in Noah Baumbach's latest movie. This sophisticated clan of New Yorkers reminded of...

Adam Sandler's Netflix contract extended by 4 more movies

There was a time where I thoroughly enjoyed Adam Sandler's work. His early comedies like Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore were actually funny, and his dramatic turns seemed to be setting him up to move into legitimate acting roles....

Review: Pixels

I really have no idea where to start with this. Usually when I sit down to write a review I'll have an angle by which to tackle a film, but with Pixels, I'm at a loss. I don't really know who the film is for. Is it a comedy appealing to gam...

 
 
Transylvania 2 Trailer photo

First full trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2

Although Genndy Tartokovsky leaving his passion project Popeye still stings, at least we'll see his work in Hotel Transylvania 2. Although the first film wasn't too big a deal, it's still a lot better than anything Sony Animation has done i...

Newest trailer for Pixels is gamey

I have a hard time figuring out exactly who Pixels is made for. Is it for the man children that Adam Sandler has spent his entire career trying to sell to, or is it for folks who'd recognize videogames in general? In the same vein as that o...

First trailer for Pixels stars Pac-Man and Adam Sandler

Remember when it was announced that they were making a full movie based off of that short film about arcade sprites across the New York skyline? Remember when it was also announced that Adam Sandler was starring in the project? Well, its t...

Hotel Transylvania 2 now has a trailer

Hotel Transylvania was a great big pile of mediocre filmmaking, but it was a rare hit for Sony's animation studio and we all still Genndy Tartakovsky. So a sequel was pretty inevitable, especially since we all know the guys in Adam Sa...

First posters for Pixels chomp and blast their way in

Pixels is a strange beast. I'm not sure I should be excited for it or worried about it. In the plus column it is about defending the earth from aliens who have mistakenly assumed our old school videogames are declarations of war. That ...

First trailer for The Cobbler, starring Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler signs on for so many films for the money, it's hard to parse whether or not he's in that one winning film he gets every couple of years. It's clear that he's got talent, but it's a shame to see him go down such a bad road. The...

Netflix and Adam Sandler are making movies together

With Netflix's latest announcement of exclusively hosting Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon's sequel (and thus making a lot of theater chains so angry they're refusing to show it), and this news, it's safe to say Netflix is getting serious abo...

First trailer for Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children

This teaser trailer for Jason Reitman's next film, Men, Women & Children has quite the hook. It's nearly silent, folks are looking at their phones, and people stare blankly into space. While that doesn't make for the most gripping...

Pixels gets images, also cameos from Pac-Man and Donkey Kong

Pixels, a full fledged film adapted from Patrick Jean's short film of the same name, is about a group of folks who are asked to fight an invasion of videogame characters when they mistake arcade machines as an act of war. Directed by Chris ...

 
 
Blended Review photo

Review: Blended

Blended is Drew Barrymore and Adama Sandler's third movie together after The Wedding Singer and  50 First Dates. Evidently that's a thing now. Like they make a romantic comedy of sorts with each other every ten years. Because...

See Blended early and free

Ready to see Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore back on screen together despite the fact that their careers have trended towards worse and worse films? Yea, me neither. But maybe they're reuniting can spark some of the old magic the two had ba...

 
 
 
Grown Ups 2 Review photo

Review: Grown Ups 2

The original Grown Ups is easily one of the worst movies made in the past decade. It wasn't funny. It wasn't interesting. It wasn't "so bad, it's good." It was simply awful. Yet, it did really well at the box office because movie audie...

Trailer: Grown Ups 2

Like Matt, I have also grown tired of writing about things I like. As a total coincidence I'm sure, we have the newest international trailer for Grown Ups 2. The same stuff is still going on from the last time, but now we have a few second...

Review: Grown Ups

As I stood in front of a movie theater on the weekend of June 25, 2010, I had to make a decision based on nostalgia. Toy Story 3 or Grown Ups? Do I watch a sequel to a film about toys coming to life or do I watch half the cast of early 90s ...
