  • Teaser Trailer drops for Michael Moore’s documentary ‘Where to Invade Next’

    Almost completely in secret, filmmaker Michael Moore recently completed a new documentary, his first in quite a while. It’s called Where to Invade Next and is currently premiering at the Toronto Film Festival before moving on next to the New York Film Festival, where Clayton and I will scope it out. In advance of that, […] More

  • Film Review: We Are Still Here (★★★)

    It took me a while to get around to this one, but I’m glad I did. All too often, things that initially slip past me during the run up to a theatrical release (especially if I’m not at the right festivals, like South by Southwest) end up going on the back burner until Blu-Ray/DVD time, […] More

    First Trailer drops for David Gordon Green’s ‘Our Brand is Crisis’ starring Sandra Bullock

    One of the under the radar Academy Award hopefuls that I’ve been the highest on, sight unseen, has been David Gordon Green‘s political drama/satire Our Brand is Crisis. Starring Sandra Bullock, it’s a look at political campaign operatives trying to influence an election in South America, and the First Trailer has just hit. Essentially, it […] More

    Film Review: Dirty Weekend (★★)

    As a general rule, I enjoy the talky and almost play-like films of Neil LaBute. Usually, he takes what he might have originally conceived of for the stage and expands them interestingly onto the screen. With Dirty Weekend however, this one has the feel of something that’s just not the right fit. Despite the salacious […] More

    Venice 2015: Instant reactions to ‘Spotlight’

    After the less than positive reception (and that’s putting it incredibly delicately) that Tom McCarthy was given with his last film The Cobbler, it might have been fair to wonder if the love affair that critics had with the filmmaker was over. In some ways, his new movie Spotlight, which just debuted today at the […] More

    Venice 2015: Instant reactions to ‘Everest’

    Of late, the opening spot at the Venice Film Festival has been a mark of quality, so perhaps it’s no surprise that Everest this week has continued that trend over at Venice 2015. While none of the earliest reviews have mentioned Baltasar Kormákur‘s film as an Academy Award player in the major categories (so this […] More

    Film Review: Before We Go (★★★)

    Imitation is often the sincerest form of flattery, be it in life or just in cinema. With his directorial debut Before We Go, actor turned filmmaker Chris Evans is wearing his movie influences clearly on his sleeve. While originality is not exactly his strong suit, Evans proves to be a capable director with no shortage […] More

    Film Review: We Are Your Friends (★½)

    While I loved Magic Mike and actually enjoyed Entourage a decent amount, if you took the very worst elements from both of those films, mixed in as many movie cliches as possible, and set it to a ton of EDM (Electronic Dance Music), that’s basically what you get with We Are Your Friends. If you’re […] More

    ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will have an IMAX monopoly for a month

    I can’t say that this news is surprising at all, but it’s still interesting to me. When the much anticipated seventh episode in the Star Wars saga opens, it’s going to have quite the run on the IMAX format. Yes, reports have stated that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be given essentially a four […] More

    Film Review: Z for Zachariah (★★½)

    Sometimes movies suffer to some degree through no fault of their own. In the case of Z for Zachariah, I think the slight lack of satisfaction that I have is partly due to the high expectations that I held for it. Maybe it was the promise that director Craig Zobel showed with his last film […] More
