    Film Review: “The Purge: Election Year” is only slightly less terrible than Donald Trump

    I’ll be the first one to admit, The Purge: Election Year has an extraordinarily great marketing campaign. Tying the film in to the Donald Trump related “Make America Great Again” slogan by having the tagline for this one be “Keep America Great” is clever, timely, and worth praising. Unfortunately, nothing else about this movie is. […] More

    INTERVIEW: Nicolas Winding Refn talks style and ‘The Neon Demon’

    It’s both a disarming and strangely twisty an experience to interview a director like Nicolas Winding Refn, who knows and is at ease with the fact that they’re work is divisive. The eccentric filmmaker is well aware that some people hate his movies, something he’s very comfortable talking about, as I learned a few days […] More

    Film Review: “The Neon Demon” is constant style and only sporadic substance

    Film Review: ‘The Nice Guys’ is an absolute riot

    At this point, I think Shane Black is probably the current master of the buddy cop formula. Especially after he transitioned from writing solid entries into the genre like Lethal Weapon to writing and directing an excellent one with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, it’s fair to anoint Black as such. Now, having seen The Nice […] More

    Film Review: ‘Money Monster’ is a Thriller for the Occupy Wall Street Generation

    Here is a film that’s both aching to be the next Network as well as yearning to be mainstream populist entertainment. Money Monster falls well short of the former goal, but in terms of the latter, it’s certainly more successful. Jodie Foster‘s latest directorial outing is, in many ways, the perfect movie for the Occupy […] More
