Review: Crazy Rich Asians

Much of the talk surrounding the film adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians is the need for Asian representation in Hollywood—while I'm with it all the way, it isn't what attracted me to the movie. See, people seem to forget that being Asia...

Fifty Shades Darker photo

Here's the darker trailer for Fifty Shades Darker

I read the trilogy, I reviewed the original film, and now I'm here to tell you about Fifty Shades Darker. There's honestly not much to say about it. It has the same look as the first one, has the same lack of chemistry its two leads were ve...

Inferno Trailer photo

First trailer for Ron Howard's Inferno teases more clues

Look, I have to be honest. I hated Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. It's dumb, only has like two good ideas, and it made so much money there had to be a film adaptation of it and its two sequels eventually. Since the first two films in the se...

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

I didn't read The Hunger Games or its sequels. When the first film came to theaters, I had heard a whole lot of people talking about the books, but I didn't know anything beyond the "It's pretty much Battle Royale" premise. When the fi...

The Witcher is getting a movie for some reason

You folks like movies? You folks like books? You folks like videogames? What if I told you that you could have everything all the time? Because it's not like having everything you want is bad, right? Anyway, like most major book series turn...

Allegiant Trailer photo

First trailer for The Divergent Series: Allegiant exists

The worst criticism I can give a film (which my roommate hates) is when I say a film just "exists." By that, I usually mean the film isn't good or bad enough to warrant an actual opinion. Through my tenure here I've been exposed to a wide v...

First trailer for Goosebumps is in for a scare

I've been interested in the Goosebumps movie for some time. When it was first announced, it sounded like a neat but very weird idea. In the film adaptation of R.L. Stine's popular line of children's horror novels, Stine (Jack Black) is a wr...

Poster for the New Goosebumps Movie is Surprisingly Badass

Apparently, there's a Goosebumps movie coming out soon-- You know, those books they always sold at your school book fair that were equal parts cheesy, weird, and occasionally horrifying? Columbia Pictures released the poster for the film to...

First trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian

First official trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

Although I don't remember liking The Maze Runner too much, I did appreciate what it did differently from all of the other Young Adult book films floating around. A testosterone riddled film full of run and gun dumb action. It was completely...

E.L. James' husband writing Fifty Shades sequel

I understand giving an author some say over their book's adaptation, but this is getting ridiculous. It seems that the production of these films is so awful, any of the slightly talented people involved are being chased off by this nonsense...
