Review: Ford v Ferrari

Cars have a certain pull. They are loud. They go fast. They are dangerous. They are everything that makes being alive fun rolled into one. They are are also a good mode of transportation. The roar of the engine and the speed at which they c...

Ford v Ferrari is a race for the ages

For six years straight, vehicles designed and made by Enzo Ferrari dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A grueling race around an eight-and-a-half mile track with speeds reaching over 200 miles-per-hour, the race was initially created to tes...

Review: Vice

I always find it amusing when people criticize actors and Hollywood in general for talking about politics and when people say that actors should stay out of politics because their job is to entertain audiences, not preach to them about poli...

First trailer for Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups

I don't have very much experience with Terrence Malick's films, but while I don't necessarily "get" his movies myself, I understand why he's a big deal. Filmed back in 2012, Knight of Cups is finally primed for a 2015 release. Starring a w...

Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings

Folks don't know this about me, but I have a soft spot for biblical stories. Having been raised half Roman Catholic, half who gives a hooey, I have an abundant knowledge of Christian bible quotes and intricacies. Regardless of your beliefs,...

See Exodus: God and Kings early and free

So you want to see a biblical epic with white people starring in the roles of Egyptians? I can do that for you. Exodus: Gods and Kings might not be heating up with hot buzz, but it still could be awesome. That's why you'll grab some pa...

Newest Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer lets the people go

I can't watch help but watch these trailers for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings without thinking about all of the other times I've seen this story played out on film. The Ten Commandments, The Prince of Egypt, that one episode of The...

Ridley Scott addresses Exodus: Gods and Kings' White cast

Casting in Hollywood has always been predominantly White. You can argue about certain stars or certain roles, but that's the cold, hard truth. Regardless of the film, the leads have always been a certain race, and in a perfect world, I coul...

New images for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings

We've seen a scant few images from Ridley Scott's upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings (that's a new full title by the way), which stars Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Pharo Ramses. Nothing says Egypt like two white guys. Grea...

First image of Christian Bale in Exodus has a beard

If there is one thing that Hollywood has taught us that is a historical fact it is that Moses had a beard. While Bale's beard in Ridley Scott's Exodus might not be as epic as Charleton Heston's was it is good to know that they are keeping o...

Review: American Hustle

As I sit here, trying in vain to remember anything of importance about David O. Russell’s latest film American Hustle -- which I saw hours ago -- I have to ask myself the question: is this my fault? I saw the ads and read the title, s...

Review: Out of the Furnace

When I sat down to watch Out of the Furnace, I had nothing but high hopes for the film. The trailers looked amazing and suspenseful and the premise seemed engaging. Plus, how could I possibly get burned on a film that stars some of my favor...

American Hustle second trailer does the hustle

Christian Bale is Moses in Ridley Scott's Exodus

American Hustle gets all up in the 70s in first trailer

David O. Russell is back and this time the movie looks a bit more interesting than his overrated Silver Linings Playbook. This is definitely the O. Russel that I recognize, with plenty of drama, style and personality crammed into a trailer...

Review: The Flowers of War

There had been a lot of Oscar-buzz building for Zhang Yimou's The Flowers of War, and with good reason. Yimou's previous works include Raise the Red Lantern, The Road Home, Hero, and House of Flying Daggers. Christian Bale was som...
