Review: Halloween

Like all slasher franchises Halloween has had its ups and downs over the years. Sure there's something to appreciate in even the worst of the eight original films and two Rob Zombie reboots, but it's hard to argue that the fr...

Venom Sequel will not be R-Rated

For a film, many thought would do horribly because it's not part of the MCU and is done by Sony, Venom did extremely well at the box office in its opening weekend. Now, of course, there is the talk of where does it go from here and that que...

Easy money won't not let Pitch Perfect 4 be a thing

Let me get my dig in upfront about how a potential sequel to the worst sequel ever is totally fine and definitely not capitalism squeezing out my last gasp of creative hope for Hollywood. Nope, just another Wednesday where once excitin...

Second trailer for Creed II lands all the right punches

When we learned that Creed II would be about Ivan Drago's son challenging Adonis Creed's son to rematch I rolled my eyes so hard I got bruises like Rock after a match. That kind of plot sounded straight out of the later Rock...

The Raid 3 is most likely not happening ever

The Raid and The Raid 2 are masterpieces. Literal masterpieces. They are some of the best action of any kind you will see ever. Director Gareth Evans should be directing everything. It's a crime he's not involved with some superhe...

Kingsman 3 is officially happening, release date announced

The first Kingsman was a fresh smack in the face to James Bond films. Taking everything that was fantastic about the comic book and reflecting it on screen in smart and creative ways that highlighted Matthew Vaughn's screenplay an...

New trailer for Halloween: Making a Murderer: Michael Myers

Universal recently released a second Halloween trailer, and frankly, if anything, it only adds to the hype created by the first. It begins with a true crime montage of the new Halloween mythos, i.e. the first film exists and now this film ...

See The Nun early and free

This whole Conjuring universe is getting a little out of control, but I suppose if they keep on making money why not keep on making them. They're also all relatively good in quality (relative to the vast majority of bad horror films ou...

Thankfully the MGM Child's Play reboot is happening

It's very possible that you hadn't heard -- considering that Chucky isn't on very many people's daily radar and it's been delayed years -- that MGM is planning to reboot the Chucky franchise without creator Don Mancini and pr...

Review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

The original Mamma Mia, based off the theatrical musical of the same name, was an absolute blast. Cram packed full of stars, fantastic numbers, clever direction, and clever winks at the genre the movie worked just as well as the musical did...

Review: Equalizer 2

There’s a scene in Sony’s The Equalizer 2, the follow-up to 2014’s rather enjoyable original, wherein Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall breaks into a drug den, beats the holy hell out a few guys and pushes his w...

See The Equalizer 2 early and free

The Equalizer was a bit of fun with Denzel Washington basically doing his best Liam Neeson so hopefully, the sequel won't be a drop off in quality the same way Taken 2 was. At least we're getting the same creative team back. Want to kn...

Indiana Jones 5 delayed, Jonathan Kasdan to write script

Because Lucasfilm wants to wait until Harrison Ford is physically unable to do the role, the fifth Indiana Jones film will miss its originally planned July 10, 2020 release date, according to Variety. Luckily(?), the project'...

See The First Purge early and free

From some humble beginnings The Purge has turned into one of bolder political commentaries in recent years. It's kind of funny to think that a high concept home invasion film has spurred this much success, but now we'll get to learn where i...

Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

One of the amazing things about the original Jurassic Park is its ability to create wonder. No matter how many times I watch it, the reveal of the dinosaurs at the beginning of that movie is awe inspiring. I get goosebumps every t...

Review: Incredibles 2

Suicide Squad 2 pulls off a writer switch

Looks like Gavin O'Conner, director and writer of Suicide Squad 2, is getting a little support. WB has brought in David Bar Katz and Todd Stashwick to help him develop the screenplay into something. It was in the early stages anyw...

Review: Ocean's 8

It’s been eleven years since we had an Ocean’s franchise film. But consider this, we went 41 years before 2001’s Ocean’s 11 remade the original Rat Pack film. Maybe we should have waited another 30?

Ralph Breaks the Internet trailer repairs expectations

It's not even been three months since Ready Player One whelmed at the boxed office and already someone has come along and shown how that should have been done. Love it or hate it, the crux of RPO, outside of nostalgia, was t...

The pieces come together for first LEGO Movie 2 trailer

I am hyped for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part because it looks like it's basically the first movie, but more. Most of the time when a movie is just the first movie but more things go wrong. Jokes get recycled, characters get dull, ...
