Just yesterday, new subscribers to the MoviePass service were only able to see four movies at the rate of $9.95 a month. That's a far cry from the one a day the service was made famous for. For the mathletes out there, assuming a 31-day mon...

Ant-Man and the Wasp's second trailer is one big dick joke

Ant-Man's been in the news a lot over the past few days, but it has nothing to do with his forthcoming sequel release on July 6, just over two months away. Instead, it's owing to his conspicuous absence in Avengers: Infinity War; you may h...

Review: Blockers

Prom! That magical experience of near mythical importance for high school students. You'll dance. You'll drink. And then you'll definitely lose your virginity, because only losers haven't after prom has come and gone. The tradition, started...

Stephen King's The Stand coming to CBS as 10-part TV series

Last summer yielded some hits and misses in ye olde Stephen King adaptation department. Obviously, we had It. Andy Muschietti's adaptation was refreshing, well directed and ideated creatively, and--most importantly--a hit with audiences. It...

Forecast calls for 100% chance of only one more Sharknado

April Fools' ... has absolutely nothing to do with this utterly serious news: the forthcoming Sharknado 6 will close out the landmark series. Sad news for anyone aiming to get their bad movies on TV.  For me, trying to rank the fi...

Review: Game Over, Man!

Die Hard doesn’t really need any sequels, but because Bruce Willis is still working, we’ll probably get at least one more anyway, in between Death Wish and Sixth Sense revivals. But, if the creators and stars of Workaholics were...

Justice League stinks, has the worst B.O. in DCEU history

SXSW Review: Barry

Veteran comedic actor Bill Hader and writer-producer Alec Berg knew they had to develop a series for HBO, but didn't know what. While bouncing ideas off of each other, Bill said, "What if I was a hitman?" Alec was skeptical. "No, it'd be me...

The Walking Dead Season 8 Recap: 'Honor'

[Editor's Note: Before we say anything, this recap will obviously go into detail about last night's episode of The Walking Dead, so there are going to be a ton of SPOILERS. Beginning now.] How often do we get to have a moment like this...

Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...

Michael Fassbender to star in Hollywood Kung Fury sequel

Kung Fury, for the uninitiated, is a 2015 crowd-funded short film that pays homage to '80s cop and martial arts movies. It's solid gold shit, the best of bad movies, but coming in at only 31 minutes in length, it's never been able to call i...

Review: The Cloverfield Paradox

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the Cloverfield continuum, The Cloverfield Paradox happened. The third installment in the Cloverfield trilogy / continuum / universe offers nothing new and little that's exciting. It's not e...

Super Bowl TV spot for The Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix

Cloverfield was released in 2008 as a found footage alien/monster flick and it was pretty bad. No apologies. Then it had a "sequel" in 2016, 10 Cloverfield Lane, which didn't seem to have much to do with the original (avoiding sp...

Review: The Maze Runner: The Death Cure

New year, new me, right? As such, it seemed prudent that one minor tweak to the old personality complex might allow for a more compassionate worldview towards movie sequels. You see, the old me, the less-better me, hated on sequels, usually...
