Review: Overlord

For the longest time, I didn't think that Overlord would release. Not because it was in production hell or anything like that, but because it was a part of J. J. Abrams Cloverfield universe and those movies can be announced years in advance...

Review: The Grinch

Believe it or not, prior to my screening I wasn't paying that much attention to Illumination's The Grinch, but from what I did see I thought the film was going to try something a little new with the character and focus on how he became...

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander should not be a superheroine. While the character is resourceful and strong, physically, mentally, and morally, The Girl in the Spider's Web turned her into some sort of action movie secret agent-type. As satisfying as...

Review: The Other Side of the Wind

Orson Welles’ final film, The Other Side of the Wind, was shot from 1970-1976, but it wasn’t fully assembled until this year. The film released by Netflix today is an imperfect salvage job. Welles only finished editing about 40-...

We may know the names of the four Avatar sequels

James Cameron and Warner Bros. are about halfway through shooting Avatar 2-5, but we still know almost next to nothing about them aside from the fact that they'll take place on Pandora and a few casting tidbits. Now the BBC has somehow got ...

Ridley Scott is currently working on a sequel to Gladiator

Gladiator was one of those seminal films that if you were the right age and saw it at the right time has stuck in your mind ever since. I was both at the right age and at the right time so the movie for me is one of my favorites from d...

Contest: Win a Blu-ray copy of Blackkklansman

I won't go on about this for too long, but it's nice to be able to give something away that's not only really good, but socially relevant. It's even better in that while Blackkklansman is based on a true story, it's a movie, it's not a...

The Birds is the dumbest horror movie concept ever

Picture this: [INT. 1962, Universal lot, Burbank, CA. Board meeting. Overworked studio execs fumbling paper, looking nervous.] EXEC 1: We’re all dry. We’ve got a big gap next spring, no way of filling it, what the heck are we...
