Review: Fighting With My Family

In case you didn't know, I happen to be a wrestling fan. As I learned about the release of the film Fighting With My Family I was ecstatic. The world of professional wrestling is already larger than life and some of the stories of its ...

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw trailer

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, or more simply Hobbs & Shaw, is the ninth film in the Fast & Furious franchise, and the first true spinoff. Featuring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham  reprising their titular rol...

The first look at Hobbs & Shaw features an intense staredown

In the storied events of the greatest franchise of the modern world, many have come and many have gone. Enemies were disposed of, and friends found a new life on the other side of the law. The Family is safe (for now) and the expunging of c...

Review: Skyscraper

I'm not sure why, but I was kind of thinking that Skyscraper would be something special. Not like, "good" special, but just some sort of low-key, fun action flick that riffed a bit on Die Hard and The Towering Infer...

Review: Rampage

When you're a child of four, you do everything with your brothers and sisters. You play together, you eat together, you even get haircuts together. And, if one of you is due for a dentist appointment, all of you are. There needs to be an...

Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Vin Diesel are going to fight

It’s obvious. Dwayne Johnson (top billing) and Vin Diesel are going to fight. For money. And I’m going to tell you why. In a recent Rolling Stone cover story Johnson explained that there’s beef between him and Diesel by no...

Super Bowl TV spot for Skyscraper features tall building

Dwayne Johnson can do no wrong (well, almost no wrong). The guy just makes blockbusters, and not much looks more blockbustery than Skycraper, a movie where Johnson must traverse a really tall building in order to save his family from evil ...

How much do you love Dwayne Johnson?

Sorry for the lack of box office the past few weeks, but holidays and such. Anyway it pretty much was just Star Wars and Jumanji, and that'll continue for a bit because... well. Blockbuster holiday movies have strong hol...

Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Before we begin, let’s bring all parties to the table, peacefully. When discussing Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the soft-sequel, hard-reboot to 1995’s Jumanji, there are clearly two camps of thought. One camp will p...

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...

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...

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...

A Dwayne Johnson-less Shazam is next planned DCU movie

In somewhat sad news coming out of San Diego Comic Con we have learned that Shazam's movie will fill the previous gap year of 2019 for the DCU, but it will not have everyone's favorite wrestler turned-actor Dwayne Johnson. Not because he is...

 
 
 
Baywatch Review photo

Review: Baywatch

Baywatch is another film in the same vein of nostalgic television reboots like The A-Team, CHiPs, and the crazily successful 21 Jump Street. A show known only for attractive people running in slow motion serving as a sort of softcore a...

Fate of the Furious gets a furious Super Bowl spot

Furious 7 was such a huge disappointment to me, I can't bear the thought of the series continuing further. I know some folks enjoyed it, and some are excited for the next film in the series but I'm kind of over it.  This Super Bowl spo...

First trailer for Baywatch is a sexy reclaim to fame

I'm not sure anyone was actually looking forward to the Baywatch movie. We heard Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron signed on to star, but it wasn't on anyone's radar until now. This first trailer for the upcoming reboot actually got a few laughs...

Watch the fantastic "You're Welcome" from Disney's Moana

If you didn't get to catch Disney's newest dynamo Moana over the Thanksgiving holiday, Disney has helpfully (and awesomely) given a little preview. Although I didn't get to gush about it as much as I wanted to in our review, Dwayne Johnson'...

Review: Moana

Disney Animation has had one critical success after another since they're in the middle of a new creative renaissance. Fully embracing CG animation, Disney has produced hits like Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, and most importantly, Froz...

Check out this fantastic new trailer for Disney's Moana

With as good of a roll Disney has been on lately, I've seen many people joke along the lines of "I will push children out of the way to see this" and for the first time, I completely agree. While this newest trailer gives away a bit more Mo...

See Central Intelligence early and free

Dwayne Johnso makes things good. He's just fun to watch so I have some hope for Central Intelligence being funny. It's clearly a bit hackneyed, but it could work. You can find out if it'll work with some passes for a screening tonight....

Here's the first trailer for Disney's Moana

Disney's animation studio has been on a Pixar like roll lately with Frozen, Big Hero 6, and Zootopia netting huge critical and financial success. Their newest princess film Moana already blows those films out of the water.  This teaser...

Zac Efron joins Dwayne Johnson in Baywatch movie

A Baywatch movie has been floating around for a while. No one is really sure why since the entire premise of the show was to show people running around in bathing suits for the pleasure of lonely people sitting at home, but it is happening....

The Rock will star in live-action Rampage adaptation

It's something of a pop culture truism that it's impossible to make a good – or even competent – movie based on a video game. That doesn't stop studios from trying, of course, probably thanks to the fact that the Resident Evil m...
