A Quiet Place almost, almost bests Rampage

If you were some sort of charlatan psychic who predicted box office returns each weekend you would have gotten this weekend very wrong. Looking at the competition between Rampage, a Dwayne Johnson led disaster movie with giants monsters, an...

Review: Blumhouse's Truth or Dare

I'm not sure if it was hubris or clarity that led Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse, to plaster the studio name before its new movie Blumhouse's Truth or Dare. There have been a plethora of other horror films within the past five years(!) with t...

Netflix and Cannes are breaking up

At this point, the saga between Netflix and the Cannes Film Festival feels like a relationship gone sour. The honeymoon phase has passed, and while the latter wants things to stay the same, the former wants to try something new and exciting...

Review: Rampage

When you're a child of four, you do everything with your brothers and sisters. You play together, you eat together, you even get haircuts together. And, if one of you is due for a dentist appointment, all of you are. There needs to be an or...

A Quiet Place has the second best opening of the year

Studios are learning a pretty good lesson recently: if you make good horror movies people will show up. The obvious proof of this is IT, but backing that thesis up is this weekend's $50 million for the stellar A Quiet Place. That's the best...

Review: Best F(r)iends (Volume 1)

This is a hard movie to review. It isn’t ‘good’, but I loved it. If you’re a fan of The Room, it retains that film’s oddball charm without it feeling forced. It barely makes sense and its slow pacing makes me w...

The First Purge trailer lacks some color

The Purge series is, for me, one that gets continually better. The first squandered the premise as a by-the-numbers home invasion film. The second took the series to the streets and opened it wide up for future installments. And the thi...

Review: A Quiet Place

For the entire night after I saw A Quiet Place I thought every sound was too loud. I put something down and the noise it made stood out to me. Each footstep seemed to fall heavier than it should have. Opening a door was a creaking...

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...

J.J. Abrams had a different plan for Rey's lineage

Arguing about The Last Jedi is the Internet's most favorite thing to do. Half the conversations I have about any movie at all somehow turn into discussions on the film. It's getting kind of tiring... so let's pour a little lighter fluid ont...

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...

What's your favorite Spielberg film?

As expected Ready Player One delivered a strong box office over the weekend. We're not talking Marvel-strong, but strong none the less. The film brought in $41.2 million over the Easter weekend, and dominated internationally with a tot...

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...

How has no one made a killer gun movie yet?

The upcoming release of Vampire Clay, a movie in which possessed clay comes to life with flesh eating gusto, has had me wondering about movies in which inanimate objects kill people. We have dolls, cars, tomatoes,&n...

Review: Ready Player One

I've used the "insert X here" sub-header joke before, and now I really wish I hadn't because in other instances it was just a joke, but in the case of Ready Player One, Stephen Spielberg's new film based on the insanely popular book of the ...

Review: Isle of Dogs

Do you like Wes Anderson? Then you'll like Isle of Dogs. It's got everything we've come to expect from the director, who has basically created a genre named after himself. The film is full of his signature symmetrical shots; his stunning&nb...
