MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Southpaw’ Can’t Land A Punch

There are very few story elements at play in Southpaw that you haven’t seen at least a few times before, typically in other […]

‘Southpaw’ Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal + Boxing = Box Office Gold

All great boxing movies have to start with the protagonist being or becoming an underdog. In the case of the Jake Gyllenhaal-led film Southpaw, it’s the latter.

Feel Your Skin Crawl While Watching the Debut Trailer for ‘Nightcrawler’

I have to let you know this up front: I’m a huge fan of Jake Gyllenhaal’s. I think he is wildly under appreciated, and does a lot of really great character work in almost all of his films, that usually ends up going unnoticed. Today, we are pleased to share with you the undeniably creepy […]

It seems like a […]
