Watch Paul Dano ride a dead Daniel Radcliffe like a dolphin in the new trailer for ‘Swiss Army Man’

Saying “you haven’t seen anything like this” is an understatement. This may not be for the casual moviegoer, as it’s a tad out there, but for the “looks-a-bit-past-the-surface” movie buff, it will surely grab your attention and make you wish you could see it right this instant. Starring Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Love & […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Shelter’ Is Captivating And Depressing In Equal Measure

Film: Shelter Starring: Anthony Mackie, Jennifer Connelly Directed by: Paul Bettany Paul Bettany’s first feature behind the camera, Shelter, is without a doubt one of 2015’s most depressing new films. It’s a heartbreaking look at life on the streets and the relationships shared by those who have no place to call home, as well as […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Wrecker’ Runs On Fumes

Film: Wrecker Starring: Anna Hutchison, Andrea Whitburn Directed by: Micheal Bafaro In Wrecker, two girls in a Mustang cross paths with a murderous tow truck driver on an empty stretch of highway with a deadly past.

SCOUTS VS. ZOMBIES

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse’ Is Dumb Fun

Film: Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Starring: Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan Directed by: Christopher Landon Every time I think I have seen what will certainly be the last enjoyable horror-comedy involving zombies, a new title appears with something fun or unique that pulls me and my hard-earned money back into a theater. […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Nasty Baby’ Is An Unforgettable, Albeit Flawed Film

Film: Nasty Baby Starring: Tunde Adebimpe, Kristen Wiig Directed by: Sebastián Silva Nasty Baby may be the most surprising movie of the year, but to discuss why that might be true would be to ruin what is sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience for even the most dedicated cinephile. Filmmaker Sebastián Silva stars alongside Tunde […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Deathgasm’ Is An Unforgettable Experience

Film: Deathgasm Starring: Milo Cawthorne, James Blake Directed by: Jason Lei Howden Deathgasm is further proof that no one makes outrageous and unforgettable indie horror films quite like the citizens of New Zealand. Brodie (Milo Cawthorne) is a teenage boy who loves heavy metal. In fact, I think the word love probably understates the way […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Drunk, Stoned, Brilliant, Dead’ Is Funny & Important

Film: Drunk, Stoned, Brilliant, Dead: The Story Of National Lampoon Starring: Henry Beard, Chevy Chase Directed by: Douglas Tirola In a world of remakes, reboots, and prequels the idea of tracing the roots of something funny all the way back to their point of origin can be risky business. People like what they like, but […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Pawn Sacrifice’ Is Tobey Maguire’s Best Work

Film: Pawn Sacrifice Starring: Tobey Maguire, Liev Schreiber Directed by: Edward Zwick The world didn’t need another version of the Bobby Fischer story, but Pawn Sacrifice is far too compelling to deny. Tobey Maguire has been something of an indie darling his entire life. Sure, he was also the first Spider-Man to appear on the […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Everest’ Offers More Heart Than Suspense

Film: Everest Starring: Jason Clarke, Sam Worthington, Kiera Knightley Directed by: Baltasar Kormákur Not since Vertical Limit has a film reached the heights of mountain climbing entertainment achieved by Baltasar Kormákur’s Everest. It’s far from the perfect thriller, but in a time where Hollywood is turning out forgettable films at an incredible rate it’s definitely […]

The-Perfect-Guy-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Perfect Guy’ Lacks Suspense, Intrigue

Film: The Perfect Guy Starring: Michael Ealy, Sanaa Lathan Directed by: David M. Rosenthal There is more uncertainty in grocery shopping than in The Perfect Guy. You know what you want when you go to the store, and you generally know where to look, but there is always a small chance whatever you want will […]
