Review: Mother!

Would you like to play a game? Well, it’s a puzzle really. It starts with Mother and Him. They are set in their home, and set upon by strangers. Only one at first, but then two, four, a grieving, boisterous entourage, a cult. All of c...

Review: American Assassin

There was a time back in the 90s and early 2000s when an American spy or hero or killer guy in a movie could go over to another country, kill all the terrorist bad guys, come back and the audience would think, "Yup, that was OK to do." But ...

Our first look at the new Hellboy

Hellboy is coming back and from everything we know so far it's looking  looking really dark, very bloody, and bit less campy than Guillermo Del Toro's take on the indie comic favorite. Also, no Ron Perlman, which is sad, but ...

J.J. Abrams will write and direct Star Wars Episode IX

Lucasfilm has officially announced that J.J. Abrams will return to the Star Wars franchise to direct Episode IX. This is a week after Lucasfilm parted ways with Colin Trevorrow, citing creative differences. (In truth, Trevorrow may have bee...

Review: It

Summer is over. We're entering the weekend past Labor Day. And yet, officially, technically (sorry everyone back in school), we've still got two more weeks. Lucky us. Lucky that now, when someone comes a knocking slinging nonsense like, "Th...

Super Troopers 2 gets baked, and trailer!

Super Troopers the original was left in a basket on our doorsteps all the way back in 2002. Probably around the same time some of you were delivered to your parents by giant, lice-ridden birds. In other words, it's been a while. But&nb...

 
 
 
Hitman's Bodyguard photo

Review: The Hitman's Bodyguard

It's August, and that means we're entering the second span of doldrums for movie releases for the year (the first being the beginning of the year). From now until late September, when all of the horror films start rolling in, we get studio ...

 
 
Detroit Review photo

Review: Detroit

In the opening scene of Detroit, a large group of African Americans are rounded up and arrested en masse for having an indoor party; their crime: not having a liquor license, supposedly. They are put in the backs of paddy wagons u...

Review: The Dark Tower

If you've read Stephen King's prolific Dark Tower saga you know it's a weird, wonderful, flawed, brilliant, mess of an epic that touches so many genres it's hard to classify it at all. It bounces from western to science fiction to...

Review: Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde looks like one of those scrappy little action flicks that has a slow burn of success. Think of things like John Wick or Taken. Films that succeed because they're cram full of action and their plots actually...

Review: The Emoji Movie

You know, for the longest time I thought that this movie was a joke. Something invented by film producers to have a laugh. A prank that writers bounced around, but never dared to seriously consider, lest their career be stamped with a black...

The Next Bond film is slated for 2019

There's been some confusion lately over the role of James Bond; who will play him, and most of all, when he'll reappear on the silver screen. With things slowly taking shape behind the scenes, us fans have been left mostly in the dark,...

Review: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Luc Besson may not be a household name, but ask any fan of film who he is and you’ll be swept into a drawn-out lauding of his movies. Besson directed both The Fifth Element and Leon: The Professional, both of which found huge critical...

 
 
Justice League photo

Justice League actually looks pretty good in its SDCC trailer

Justice League is in the middle of a huge mess right now. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are tooling and re-tooling elements, Ben Affleck was almost phased out of the Batman role (before confirming he'd be staying on), and the film's current ad...

Jodie Whittaker will play Doctor Who's Thirteenth Doctor

If you're a 'hip' kid like me, then you may have heard that the BBC announced a new Doctor was on the way for their long-running show Doctor Who. And on Sunday, they revealed on their Twitter that the new Doctor would be played by...

 
 
Apes Review photo

Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

Combing through nostalgic culture has become the norm, and unfortunately, so have the middling resulting projects. Audiences have, sadly, come to expect reboots to suffer as studios struggle to re-capture what made something popular in the ...

Daniel Craig reportedly agrees to play Bond again

After Spectre came out Daniel Craig was not too kind to the chances of him ever playing Bond again. The role is an incredible amount of pressure and the shooting is often stressful so he had some choice words about returning. However, ...

 
 
Castlevania Review photo

Review: Castlevania (Season1)

Adi Shankar is quite a cult hit in film circles. He's made a name for himself by fully investing into properties he loves. It's a nerdy demeanor that's absolutely infectious as its led to his famous "Bootleg Universe," in which he's produce...

Review: Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me was a revelation when it first hit theaters. A villain choosing fatherhood over his proclivity for evil deeds was a novel idea, and it was much more than the minion flavored marketing would have you believe. Then those minions...

 
 
Spider-Man Review photo

Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man films have been through all sorts of ups and downs. What was once the biggest comic book property on film has since been the victim of studio craziness, failed attempts, and just an overall bad reception by the time The...

Review: Baby Driver

Edgar Wright is a director with a specific vision, and it's led him to make some of the most genre-bending films in the past decade, and some of the funniest. It's also led him to leave Ant-Man. How do you bounce back from someone not letti...

 
 
Daniel Day-Lewis retires photo

Daniel Day-Lewis has retired from acting

In totally unexpected news, Daniel Day-Lewis has decided to retire from acting. One of the finest actors of his generation, Day-Lewis' last onscreen role will be in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Phantom Thread, which comes out December 25th. A...

Review: Cars 3

Pixar has made a name for itself these past few decades by delivering quality kids films that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. Yet among those films, the Cars series is rarely included, and for good reason. The storytelling and jokes ...

Black Panther teaser trailer drops and it's awesome

We got a brief look at Black Panther last night during game 4 of the NBA Finals and to sum it up, it looks amazing. Set in the technologically advanced but secluded African nation of Wakanda, Black Panther will tell the story of King T'Chal...

Review: The Mummy

Everybody wants a superhero movie universe now. Thanks to Marvel's insane success at stringing together a cinematic comic universe, every movie studio out there wants a piece of the pie. You can't really blame them. Cinematic universes put ...

 
 
 
Wonder Woman Review photo

Review: Wonder Woman

DC Comics and Warner Bros have been, well, let's say misguided in their attempts at launching a series of films comparable to Marvel's success. Deciding to push through critical failure (thanks to overall box office success), the conglomera...

 
 
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...

In defense of Roger Moore

Yesterday we heard the sad news that Roger Moore had passed away. If you're like me it hit you pretty hard, because if you're like me Roger Moore's James Bond is something you love. A lot of people are not like me. Most don't outright hate ...

Tom Hardy likes cosplay, especially Venom.

Last we heard on the Venom movie front, Andrew Garfield was still the defacto Spider-Man, Spider-Man had not shown up in the Marvel cinematic universe, and Sony had not learned it was more lucrative to play nice with Marvel than hold their ...
