Review: The Bad Batch

Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night was a sparse yet stunning debut that overflowed with languid cool. So much of Girl Walks gets by on its moody/artsy posturing, which had shades of Jim Jarmusch's early work mixed with an ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jackrabbit review photo

Tribeca Review: Jackrabbit

The vibe of Jackrabbit, a no-budget dystopian cyberpunk thriller, was inspired by trips to the video store. Its whole mood is defined by vaguely remembered VHS box art, and the types of films that fill a person's childhood but leave onl...

International trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road

This Japanese trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road has more of everything I want from this film: more madness. More Max. More, more MORE. The giant Japanese characters strewn throughout make it even more enjoyable. The May 15th release feels so ...

First teaser for Turbo Kid, set in a post apocalyptic 1997

This may be the very definition of a teaser, coming in at less than 40 seconds, but boy do I need Turbo Kid in my life. Premiering at Sundance this year, Turbo Kid is an apocalypse set in a futuristic 1997. This is teaser is all I need wit...

First trailer for Young Ones starring Michael Shannon

To be honest, I wouldn't normally pay attention to a film like Young Ones if it weren't for the cast. Young Ones stars Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where water has become scarce, and securing a pipelin...

Character posters for The Giver feature my boo, Taylor Swift

Although Taylor Swift said we'd never ever ever get back together, I'm still clinging on to hope because she's just the best person. As an example of this, she's in the upcoming film based on The Giver. Although the first trailer loses the ...

First trailer for 'The Maze Runner' is intense

The first trailer for the film adaptation of James Dashner's The Maze Runner has succeeded in making me curious about an upcoming film/ book trilogy that I didn't know existed until a few hours ago. This intense trailer exposes b...

 
 
Trailer of the Apes photo

First trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is boring, plain and simple. It has a cumbersome title, odd looking CGI mashed against live actors, and it's ultimately rendered utterly pointless by film's end. If we know humankind is going to be ...

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes gets posters, release date

Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer may not be cut for Weinstein

Not too long ago we reported that Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer would be getting cut by 20 minutes for US release because The Weinstein Company thinks flyover country is full of slackjawed dummies with short attention spans. It looks like the ...

 
 
This is the End photo

This is the End getting re-released in theaters soon

This is the End was the best film of the Summer hands down (Fast & Furious 6 notwithstanding). It brought the biggest surprises, biggest laughs, and most memorable moments (that finale had to be the greatest thing I've seen in years). S...

Flix for Short: The Real World: This is the End Edition

This is the End is one of the funniest films of the year so far if you're a fan of Seth Rogen and his gang. Even if you're not, you're still going to find yourselves laughing. A good gauge of how funny This is the End is going to be to you...

 
 
This is the End Review photo

Review: This is the End

I've been harsh toward This is the End from the very beginning. First batch of trailers painted the film as a "Hey look at [enter famous name here] acting wacky!" sort of comedy, but as the trailers rolled on and hinted at the bigger pictur...

New This is the End posters take yo panties off

I'm still holding firm in my belief that This is The End, the post-apocalyptic Rapture comedy starring famous funny guys like Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel as themselves, is going to go either one of two ways. It's either going to be really f...

Trailer: Pineapple Express 2

Well, uhhh, the fools they are in April. Those fine fellow actors of mine have, uh, created a humorous trailer for their upcoming film This is the End. The joke is that it is a trailer for a movie that, well, uh, doesn't exist. Pineapple E...

This is the End is somewhat more nigh

This is the End might be one of the more anticipated comedies of the year. We'll all be anticipating two days less now as the film has been bumped up to a June 12 release instead of a June 14 release. Those two days should give the fil...

New Oblivion TV spots have the moon getting blowed up

There's something about mayhem perpetrated against the moon that I find kind of absurdly funny, whether it's threats to blow it up or Chairface Chippendale trying to write his name on it. In this new TV spot for Oblivion, a character nonch...
