Film Review: ‘The Hollars’ Reminds Us Why We Go to the Movies in the First Place

In a theatrical landscape littered with roles shamelessly written for statue-seekers, multiple comic book universes, and controversial subject matter intended to rile audiences into a social media frenzy, it is refreshing to finally see a film that reminds you why we go to the movies in the first place. At the core, we watch movies to feel. […]


WATCH: Latest Trailer for ‘The Accountant’ Gives Look Into Ben Affleck’s Character

  Ben Affleck plays an accountant in his latest film, the aptly titled “The Accountant.” The newest trailer for the film, which was released today, gives a better look at Affleck’s complicated character. In the film, Affleck plays Christian Wolff, a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a […]


WATCH: First Trailer for ‘The Accountant’ Is a Dark Mystery with Ben Affleck

As Ben Affleck took on the Caped Crusader this year with “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” his next venture will teaming up with Gavin O’Connor on his latest effort “The Accountant.”  Also starring Academy Award nominees Anna Kendrick, John Lithgow, Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons, and Emmy winner Jeffrey Tambor, “The Accountant” tells the story of […]


Film Review: Get a Job (★★★)

The trend of long delayed films turning out to be unnecessarily shelved continues with Get a Job. Now, this comedy isn’t a lost masterpiece like Margaret or anything of the sort, but it is an entertaining comedy that manages to remain just as relevant as it would have been, had it made its original 2012 […]


Film Review: Digging for Fire (★★★)

There’s something really pleasurable about watching a new act in a filmmaker’s career. With his new movie Digging for Fire, multi-hyphante Joe Swanberg has fully emerged from his mumblecore beginnings and become an incredibly nimble writer and director. His early works like Hannah Takes the Stairs or Nights and Weekends established his simple aesthetic, but it’s […]


Film Review: Pitch Perfect 2 (★★★)

I’ll admit it…I was one of the few not to be particularly charmed by Pitch Perfect. It wasn’t bad, sure, but nothing special at all. Pitch Perfect 2, however, somehow managed to win me over. Far from perfect (no pun intended), this sequel manages to make the music even catchier, even if the comedy is […]


Film Review: The Last Five Years (★★★)

One of the simplest musicals in the past few years, The Last Five Years also manages to be one of the most effective. This isn’t a particularly great musical in comparison to others we’ve seen lately, but it’s solid and features a lovely turn from Anna Kendrick. She easily outdoes her work in Into the […]

LOS ANGELES, CA—Actress and singer Anna Kendrick will make a special appearance at the 87th Oscars, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced today. The Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air on Sunday, February 22, live on ABC. “Out of the woods and on to the Oscar stage, Anna will be performing […]


Film Review: The Voices (★★½)

If ever there happened to be a talented actor who should make it his business to stay away from big budget action films, it’s Ryan Reynolds. Despite his good looks and skills in the genre, he just can’t seem to stay away from a disaster. For my money, he’s far better utilized in comedies (even […]


Film Review: Cake (★★★)

Every once in a while, and admittedly not often enough, an actor or actress opens your eyes to talents you weren’t aware they inhabited.  Over the past few decades, I think of performers like Charlize Theron in “Monster” or Halle Berry in “Monster’s Ball” as prime examples.  Joining the elite list is the beautiful and […]


Film Review: Into the Woods (★★★)

Slick, lavish, and imaginatively vibrant, Rob Marshall‘s newest musical adaptation “Into the Woods” hits most of the notes as a thoroughly entertaining experience of the holiday season.  Assembling one the year’s finest casts, Marshall brings his ability to bring each actor to their utmost potential, while keeping composer Stephen Sondheim‘s brilliance intact.  In the end however, […]
