    ‘Star Trek 4’ Hires The Franchise’s First Female Director

    The quest for diversity and representation in Hollywood just scored a win. When it comes to blockbuster filmmaking, it’s been all but exclusively an all boys club. That’s about to change. While a lot of the recent “Star Trek” conversations have been around Quentin Tarantino potentially working on a franchise installment, something else has come […] More

    Franchise Creator John Carpenter Will Score Blumhouse’s ‘Halloween’

    If you can take over a franchise and gain the support of said franchise’s creator, that’s usually a good sign. In the case of the “Halloween” series, John Carpenter started things off with a classic. Before long, however, things devolved into generic slasher territory. Mediocre (at best) sequel after sequel diluted the brand, until Rob […] More

    ‘Jurassic World 3’ To Be Directed By Colin Trevorrow

    When one (blockbuster) door closes, another one opens. For Colin Trevorrow, getting kicked off of Episode IX of the “Star Wars” saga had to be a blow. After all, that gig was part of his Hollywood reward for the success of “Jurassic World” back in 2015. Then, the calamity that was “The Book of Henry” […] More

    Film Review: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Should Have Stayed Buried

    It’s rarely a good idea to remove an auteur filmmaker from a blockbuster franchise and expect improvements. “Pacific Rim” was a flawed yet sporadically fun monster movie. It represented director Guillermo del Toro painting on his biggest canvas. Now, “Pacific Rim: Uprising” ditches del Toro but keeps the premise, to significantly lesser results. This is […] More

    Film Review: ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Brings the Torture to a Climax

    Like an inattentive lover thrusting away ineffectively, this franchise has finally finished, despite its audience being done a long time ago. “Fifty Shades Freed” so misunderstands us as its partner, neglecting even the most basic of needs. Easily the worst film in the series, as well as of 2018 so far, it’s absolute dreck. The […] More

    Halloween Madness Top 10: Ranking The ‘Saw’ Franchise

    If it’s Halloween (or Halloween Madness for us), it must be “Saw.” That was the promotion over more than half a decade for one of the horror’s most interesting franchises. With the release of “Jigsaw” (review here), last weekend bringing the series back to theaters now felt like a perfect opportunity to bring back a […] More

    Film Review: ‘Jigsaw’ Wants To Play Another Game

    He still wants to play a game with you. “Jigsaw” marks the return of the “Saw” franchise after over a half decade of dormancy. Now eight films deep, the series is launching again, hoping that it still has a place in the horror world. The landscape is much different, with PG-13 ghost stories once again […] More

    Quicksilver Will Return in ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’

    Even if the last two films in the “X-Men” franchise didn’t work for you, it’s likely that one element did. Evan Peters‘ Quicksilver stole the show with limited appearances in both “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and “X-Men: Apocalypse“. So, it’s probably no surprise that we haven’t seen the last of this character, even as […] More

    ‘Deadpool 2’ Has Begun Shooting

    One of the more unique aspects of last year’s awards season was how close “Deadpool” came to a Best Picture nod. Literally on nomination morning, there was a chance that the offbeat superhero film was going to get nominated. It didn’t happen, but that shows just how much the character caught on. We had a […] More
