Golden Globes to prevent dramas from competing as comedies

The Golden Globes were an unfunny joke this year, anchored by its comparatively unfunny Best Comedy, The Martian. The film's win, paired with lead actor Matt Damon's Best Comedy Actor win, was met with almost unanimous ire. However, the Hol...

First trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Gareth Edwards is directing a Star Wars movie. The man who has helped to redefine how you direct large objects hurtling at each other has his hands on the Death Star and all of a galaxy far, far away. I mean, that's a fact that is real...

Flix for Short: The Planets

The Planets, by Andy Martin, is a wonderful short film "told in twelve parts." The short features 12 mini-stories, each on its own planet and each with its own brilliantly unique animation style. Towards the end the larger story comes toge...

Flix for Short: StormJumper

In StormJumper, an alien shaman attempts to use meditation and magic to escape from an annihilating planetary storm. I totally love everything about the visual style of StormJumper, from the character design to the color pallet of the worl...

Newest trailer for Gravity is amazing like the others

Second Ender's Game trailer doesn't play games

The road to Ender's Game has been a long and rough one. If the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's text wasn't riddled with delays, it's riddled with controversy because Card tends to be a jerk or something. After the first somewhat lacking t...

Review: The History of Future Folk

The History of Future Folk is about the origins of the universe's only alien bluegrass folk duo, and how they discovered and fell in love with Earth's music. It's charming, adventurous, and a ton of fun. I mean when's the last time you saw ...

Dave Bautista is Drax for Guardians of the Galaxy

Flix for Short: Moon Dust

Moon Dust, a short film created by Ezequiel Romero, is about a pilot (on his way from the moon) who crash lands in the middle of a forest. There's this fabulous twist on the genre in the end, so I can't really explain the film beyond that....

Fresh batch of Battle School logos from Ender's Game

Although Ender's Game has a lot going for it (like a craggly Harrison Ford and a score from the man who scored the underrated Glory), I still think it's going to debut to little fanfare. It's story is wonderfully dark (but somehow feat...
