  Watch Video So let’s talk about alchemy, the magical art of turning one thing into another, or usually, crap into gold. For Potter fanboys, Fantastic Beasts is another welcome view into Rowling’s still magical mind. That&rsqu...   read

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 doc--which means, the messages are still presented as entertainment (largely).   read

Netflix hosted Friday’s final event on the main stage of the 2018 New York City Comic Con. It was appropriate titled, Netflix and Chills. But as the host was quick to point out -- this was the seasonally appropriate kin...   read

  Watch Video Hellboy, sequel to 2008's Hellboy: The Golden Army, stars Ron Perlman and is directed by Guillermo del Toro. Scratch that. Reverse it. Hellboy was supposed to be a direct sequel to 2008's The Golden Army, only ...   read

  Watch Video We've said it before and we'll say it again: Holmes & Watson is the closest you're getting a Step Brothers sequel (at least until they cave to the pressure of tens of millions of dollars and just make it anyway). Yes, the...   read

Ant-Man & the Wasp was pretty good. In fact, we really liked it. News is, it's releasing digitally on October 2, with Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD releasing October 16. That's right, Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd in tight leather are coming to your home platforms any day now! It's like Christmas without gifts, reindeer, or fat men ... and more latex. Hella more latex, now with shrinkage included!   read

  Watch Video In one of the least action-packed heist movies you’ll ever see, Robert Redford proves that at age 82, he’s still got it, and by it I mean his gun, of course. From the opening shot, The Old Man &...   read

Is the world ready for a Netflix Diablo animated series? Hasn’t Diablo stolen enough of our lives already, keeping us running levels and bosses all hours of night and day for those super unique magic items and runes? Apparently, Netflix thinks not. We can still binge more of our lives away on the 22-year-old gaming franchise, but this time through the Netflix streaming platform.   read

  Watch Video What’s shocking about White Boy Rick is not the lower-middle class family drama of 1980s eastside Detroit; it’s not the violence (relatively mild for a drug film); it’s not the depiction of a young...   read

  Watch Video Fair warning, this is literally the definition of teaser. It's short, doesn't really show much, and says a lot less. Except, well, Matt Murdoch, attorney at law, has finally decided he likes his latex-suited friend better than himself. Yippee. It's basically a reminder that yes, Netflix's Daredevil does exist, and that yes, it'll be returning to binge anew, soon.   read

  Watch Video Universal debuted the latest trailer for Halloween today, and boy, I'm pleasantly whelmed. This is the most promising material for one of the original slasher-horror characters to come to light in recent memory.   read

  Watch Video Before this review gets serious, can we take a moment to appreciate the presence of the Inside Man thematic overture? So appropriate given the plot device and that Spike Lee directed the awesome 2006 heist fi...   read

Recently, we discussed just how many Joker movies Jared Leto has in the works. Absolutely everyone agreed it was insanity. Now, news is gathering like a compacted bowel ready to void itself in explosive fashion: Jared Leto is...   read

Review: Incredibles 2

  Watch Video There has been early chatter that Incredibles 2 relies on nostalgia to achieve its ends. Let me be perfectly clear, I understand that (1) we’re in the middle of a nostalgia driven resurgence of a great many properties c...   read

  Watch Video Given Tim Burton's propensity for strangely dark films (Frankenweenie, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd, etc.), he's seemed an odd pick to direct children's movies--an...   read

Despite being a mediocre movie, Suicide Squad pushed weight at the box office to the tune of $325.1M domestic and $746.8M worldwide. Obviously, none of that had to do with Ben Affleck's Batman, so Warner Brothers and DC have ...   read

Review: Ocean's 8

  Watch Video 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?   read

  Watch Video I'm not really sure what a dramatic ballad like Céline Dion's "Ashes" is doing on the Deadpool 2 original soundtrack, or why there's a music video for it, or how it's not entirely a joke.   read

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, assumi...   read
