Review: Stuber

It is no secret that I am a fan of wrestlers in movies. I'm also a massive fan of buddy cop movies, which you can learn more about in this weekend's FlixList. So when I found out that former WWE Champion and Guardians of the Galaxy comedy l...

Review: Yesterday

Let's play a game. Head around the Internet and count up how many Beatles song puns there are as headlines or subheaders for reviews of the movie Yesterday. I mean, I went with one, obviously, and the few other reviews my peepers have lande...

Bo Burnham: comedy in the age of anxiety

There is something undeniably addictive about Bo Burnham’s work, and watching Eighth Grade only deepened my appreciation for him. He intrigues and saddens me in equal measure because he’s prodigiously gifted. How can one person,...

Review: Toy Story 4

There's an old adage within Pixar, that the prestigious animated studio wouldn't make sequels unless they had "better stories" than the originals. Ever since Cars 2 followed up a homely and relatable classic with espionage plots and literal...

Review: Men in Black: International

As a franchise, Men in Black feels like it has justified its continued existence within the sphere of pop culture. Launching hot off the heels of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith was a star, and Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K was the gruff...

Review: The Dead Don't Die

Jim Jarmusch has had a long career of making use of dry wit and observation. In the '80s his debut feature Stranger Than Paradise was an indie darling for its deconstructive technique (it broke the line!) and laconic humor. His career since...

Review: Shaft

Do you know how refreshing it is to say that there's a new Shaft movie? While I never grew up watching the original Richard Roundtree trilogy of films, or the short-lived miniseries, I always knew just how cool, suave, and badass he wa...

Fangboner trailer accidentally pees all over your face

I don't know how many people there are like me in the world (that I haven't tracked down and murdered by now), but if you happen to be anything like me then sometimes you sit down and think, "Man, I've watched too many good movies, lately....

Sigourney Weaver coming to save the doomed new Ghostbusters

Comedy sequels remain one of the toughest nuts to crack in Hollywood because of their deceptive difficulty. A joke makes you laugh the most the first time you hear it, and a comedy sequel, or the bad ones at least, is like that but spread o...

Review: The Fall of the American Empire

Every now and then I’ll see a movie that I don’t particularly like but I find thought provoking. Every now and then I’ll see a movie I find thought provoking not because of the depth of its ideas but because of the ideas i...

Review: Rondo

Rondo is a weird blend of half-intentional and half-probably-not-intentional weirdness, humor, and spectacle. Sometimes actors forget to act and just say their lines. Sometimes they gleefully nosh the scenery like it's made of cotton candy....

Review: Saint Bernard

Saint Bernard is dreamlike moreso than most movies that attempt this distinction. Its journey of a music conductor into the mouth of madness works in symbol and metaphor with gleeful breaks in logic. Moments and places only mesh in that our...
