Review: The Rhythm Section

There's an interesting premise to The Rhythm Section or at least one that's a bit more surprising than the trailers let on. The film is a revenge movie. One of those movies where a person's family is killed by someone and they train su...

Review: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Friends. Countrymen. Britons. There are so many places (read: quips) I’d like to begin. From the guy who dated an already older-ish Madonna. Comes the prettiest Arthur you’ve ever seen (seriously, the header image is about as pe...

Review: Spy

Over the past few years I've grown increasingly tired of Melissa McCarthy's shtick. I figured this was because I was tired of her, but it turns out she's just been making mediocre movies. Her shtick still works when someone is actually maki...

Dom Hemingway trailer makes you want to see Dom Hemingway

OK, so Jude Law playing a scuzzbag (yes, that's a word) should be quite enough to make you swing your head towards a movie, but if the positive buzz out of TIFF is correct than Dom Hemingway is also an awesomely funny movie. This trai...

New Contagion poster has more Gwyneth Paltrow death face
