Venom is a bona fide hit as it outperforms again

The big question last week was whether or not Venom's above-expectation box office would carry over to next week. Predictions were for a pretty solid drop considering the poor reviews and only OK audience reception. Those predictions were w...

Review: Bad Times at the El Royale

Genre deconstruction is awesome when done right. When it's done wrong it comes across as trite, like the filmmaker doesn't actually understand the very genre they want to take apart. However, when it's done right you get films that help def...

Review: Apostle

Gareth Evans (not to be confused with the also talented Gareth Edwards) is easily one of the best action directors working. The Raid and The Raid 2 are, to put it simply, action masterpieces. His use of space, innovative filming t...

Venom is no turd as it destroys October box office record

The dire reviews seem to have done nothing to keep folks away from Venom over the weekend as it pulled in $80 million, breaking the opening weekend record for October by around $25 million (set by Gravity in 2013). For what it's worth, I th...

Review: Venom

It is really easy to tear Venom apart. There are a myriad of issues with it from casting to screenplay to plotting to... well, everything. Superhero movies have come a long way in the past ten years, and Venom feels like it learne...

Rambo V starts filming and is apparently a western

First Blood was not a movie meant to have four sequels. The original Rambo movie was more of a character study with a heavy focus on PTSD, America after the war, and a striking performance from Stallone. Then the rest of the movies hap...

Gambit movie will have a romantic/sex comedy vibe

Look, I know that comic book movie news often takes little quotes and blows them out of proportion, and maybe this information from Gambit producer Simon Kinberg is just that, so I'm going to start by letting his quote speak for itself...

Review: Smallfoot

The fact that's there's a Tod Browning's Freaks reference in Smallfoot doesn't really say all that much about the movie. It's not actually crammed full of clever comedy for adults, or secretly hiding darker themes than what appears. I ...

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 Rocky after a match. That kind of plot sounded straight out of the later Rocky fi...

James Wan will produce a Train to Busan remake

I have yet to see the Korean film Train to Busan, but it's in my pile of "must watch" movies as the idea of a bunch of people stuck on a train during a zombie outbreak is pretty awesome, and there must be a reason it was an internation...

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 and directio...

Review: The House with the Clock in Its Walls

You know what a lot of kids movies lack these days (I ask while waving my cane in the air at a cloud)? Charm. There's some amazing stuff going on for sure, but that certain "charming" characteristic is often missing. Maybe it's because chil...

Kevin Feige and Marvel will oversee the X-Men movies

I think we all knew this was coming, though I've got a strong argument for why it shouldn't, but Bob Iger, Disney's CEO, confirmed in an interview with THR that the X-Men will be housed under the Marvel umbrella once the Fox merger goes thr...

Star Wars is going to slow the hell down for a little bit

Every comment section.  Every single one. If the article is even tangentially related to Star Wars then the entire comment section turns into a debate on the franchise. The one thing that seems nearly unanimous in all these "...
