Review: Zombieland: Double Tap

Ten years ago, when the zombie craze was at its peak a little Zom-Com called Zombieland came out and help invent the entire genre of Zom-Com. The film, which at the time starred some of Hollywood's biggest up-and-comers, was smart, cle...

Review: The Addams Family

They're cree-py and they're koo-ky, mysterious and spoo-ky, they have a brand new mov-ie, the Ad-dams Fa-mi-ly; An an-im-at-ed fea-ture, so gather to a seat-yer, gonna-wan-na be-here, The Ad-dams Fa-mi-ly.

Review: Lucky Day

Following the emergence of Quentin Tarantino in the early '90s, audiences the world-round were at least tantalized by the fan-to-filmmaker's cocktail of pop culturally-savvy criminals and explosive violence. The Tarantino brand would evolve...

I'm not sure I see the appeal to Onward

Pixar is a studio I used to love with a fiery passion, but its output over the last decade has been incredibly mixed. From sequels no one wanted to just subpar original ideas, I no longer look forward to the next year's Pixar release. Toy ...

LFF Review: Jojo Rabbit

During the opening sequence of Jojo Rabbit, Britpop plays over a montage of Nazi paraphernalia and propaganda. Archive footage shows Hitler reaching down from a podium to girls screaming to be with him, probably crying to have his babie...

NYCC 2019: DC Universe's Harley Quinn gets a release date

Harley Quinn is a hot commodity these days, with the character featuring prominently in Birds of Prey to the point where the movie is essentially a Harley Quinn movie in all but name. While that movie's marketing is slowly ramping up, ...

NYCC 2019: Free Guy is the Undertale of video game movies

Ryan Reynolds is one of the modern comedy golden boys, isn't he? Between his Deadpool movies and one off comedies like The Hitman's Bodyguard or Detective Pikachu, it's safe to say that whenever he appears in a comedy, chances are it's goin...

Review: Killer Sofa

Let's get this controversy out of the way right now: The piece of demonic furniture in Killer Sofa is (big gasp)... not actually a sofa. It's a recliner. It's a chair. As Oxford describes it, a sofa is "a long upholstered seat with a back a...

Review: Koko-di Koko-da

A married couple attempts a camping trip, the first vacation they've had since an outing to celebrate their daughter's birthday. There is no child, now. They're alone, despondent, and aggravated as they twist through backroads before stoppi...

HBO Max lands a two-season revival of The Boondocks

Looks like actor John Witherspoon was right after all. WarnerMedia has announced that Aaron McGruder's legendary comedy series The Boondocks will be getting a two-season revival for HBO Max. The group has ordered two full seasons for a reim...

Drugs are bad (but fun!) in first trailer for The Wave

Giving off some serious John Dies at the End vibes, the above trailer for The Wave reminds us that taking drugs from strangers is a terrible idea--that could also give us powers and let us hop through alternate dimensions. So maybe they're...

Big Bang Theory finds a streaming home with HBO Max

The streaming wars have been getting intense. After Netflix announced it acquired the exclusive rights to stream Seinfeld yesterday, HBO has revealed it prevailed in the bidding war to acquire rights for The Big Bang Theory. A sitcom based ...

South Park gets renewed through 2022

It'll likely be a surprise to no one, but Comedy Central has renewed the edgy, satire-laden comedy series South Park through 2022. Once the most shocking show on TV, South Park has remained a source of comedy gold for over two decades. Crea...

Review: One Cut of the Dead

One of my favorite things about low-budget filmmaking is that when you see the strings, when you feel the quirks and inconsistencies that haven't been edited, re-shot, or focus-grouped away you get to see the people within the movie. You se...

Contest: The Dead Don't Die, and neither do our giveaways

Today's contest sees the dead rise again in a Blu-ray copy of The Dead Don't Die. Man, zombies just don't die. I mean, they do kinda, but I meant the zombie genre. In both movies and gaming it's still going pretty strong, despite being...

Review: Satanic Panic

Most horror films try to spread the idea that your average devil worshiper is some basement-dwelling white dude who lives off-the-grid, has no income of his own, and is repellent to anyone with half a brain unfortunate enough to land anywhe...

Review: Clownado

Clownado, a movie entirely based on some lazy wordplay, found the most surefire way to get my undivided attention. What can I say? I'm a man of simple pleasures. This low-budget slice of horror/comedy has the added pleasure of conjuring in ...

One Cut of the Dead wants you to skip its own trailer

Doing a movie in a single take is all the rage these days, so we should have all assumed that someone would make a zombie movie using that same hook. And so here we are with One Cut of the Dead, the Birdman of zombie movies--except this lo...

Review: Ready or Not

It's very rare for me to actually be excited by horror films. For whatever reason, my suspension of disbelief just doesn't work in that setting. Watching a character get chased by some demonic/psychotic killer doesn't fill me with dread bec...

Review: The Amazing Johnathan Documentary

My brother and I loved The Amazing Johnathan growing up. The stand-up comedian/magician specialized in oddball sleight of hand and strange props, and we’d often imitate the bit where he sticks a straw into his ear, pulls it out his mo...

Review: Where'd You Go, Bernadette

There's something exhilarating and befuddling in the structure to so many Richard Linklater films, at least to me. Where'd You Go, Bernadette, the American independent's latest feature, is certainly based upon the 2012 novel of the same nam...

Review: Good Boys

Good Boys has, since its initial trailer landed, been touted as Superbad with younger kids. A film that uses comedy to address an awkward transition in life. Here it's the movement from childhood to teenager instead of teenager to...

Review: The VelociPastor

The VelociPastor is the kind of movie where despite knowing for a fact that it could never live up to its title, you still soldier ahead hoping against hope that you can tell people that they need to see The VelociPastor. You want to name d...

Review: Nekrotronic

Despite its blasts of gore and streaks of profanity, Nekrotronic has a pure straight-to-cable energy. Its central conceit of demons attempting to use an app game to infect all the world's souls is cute and novel, the sort of idea that netwo...

Silicon Valley's final season is coming this fall

For five seasons, the core crew of Pied Piper has seen more than its share of ups and downs. Nervous doctor visits and schmoozing investors to stay afloat often coincided with threats of court hearings and production pivots. Through it all,...

SXSW Review: The Art of Self-Defense

The Art of  Self-Defense is the kind of film that continually evolves from the moment you start watching it. Actually, it probably starts changing even before that. Its plot description belies its actuality and even if you've seen dire...
