    ‘The Conjuring 3’ Will Scare Up Some Money for New Line

    Mark this down as another bit of inevitable news. After two certified horror movie smash hits, New Line Cinema is now hard at work making a trilogy out of “The Conjuring“. The series that filmmaker James Wan used to help establish himself as a fright flick master will have a new installment moving forward. “The […] More

    Ben Affleck and Gavin O’Connor Are Making a Sequel to ‘The Accountant’

    In our review last year of the Ben Affleck action film “The Accountant,” we called it the sort of movie that will have a long life playing on cable. Well, that likely will be true (it’s currently on HBO though, so not TNT just yet), but first it seems that it will become part of a […] More

    Film Review: ‘Alien: Covenant’ Forgets the Fear

    More often than not, advancements in cinematic technology are a very good thing. CGI can show us literally anything, with the only limits being those of the imagination of the people crafting the film. The art form has an openness that almost boggles the mind. Sometimes, however, the old, simpler, way is best. In the case […] More

    Film Review: ‘Fate of the Furious’ Revs Engines for Craziest Adventure Yet

    Zombie cars attack New York City. We have come to this point in movie history and I never want to turn back. The “Fast and Furious” series has defied even the loftiest of expectations since it emerged in 2001. From a surprise mid-budget hit about drag racers who steal DVD players, to a multibillion-dollar spy […] More

    Film Review: ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Is A King Sized Adventure

    We really didn’t need another King Kong movie. That being said, it’s a relief that the one we got is “Kong: Skull Island“. While not reinventing the cinematic wheel, it’s a blockbuster that knows where the money shots are. You’re going to get what you pay for here, and if you’re paying to see Kong […] More

    Weekend Openings: Batman, Bondage, Sequels and Spin-offs

    This weekend more or less sums up Hollywood these days. All of the major new releases are either sequels or spin-offs. Originality at its finest, right? At least one of these has Batman in it, since the one with supposedly hot sex is a real dud. Alas, here are the films hitting theaters near you […] More

    Film Review: ‘Yoga Hosers’ is Kevin Smith’s love letter to teen cinema

    Now a dozen films in, I think folks know where they stand when it comes to multi hyphenate Kevin Smith. Some are consistently charmed by his view of the world, while some just wish he’d grow up. I’m a shameless member of the former group. As someone who considers Smith among his favorite filmmakers, his […] More

    Film Review: ‘Suicide Squad’ is an absolute disaster

    Holy crap. There was no way to prepare myself for the mess that is Suicide Squad. I went in hoping to be blown away by an irreverent comic book film to rival that of Deadpool, and yet, I got something far closer to the reboot of Fantastic Four. Filmmaker David Ayer is capable of magnificent […] More

    Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’ begins to show diminishing returns

    I completely understand why the Bourne franchise needs star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass. Anyone who saw The Bourne Legacy clearly noticed what was lacking. At the same time though, I’m not sure why Damon and Greengrass need this franchise anymore. Jason Bourne is a serviceable enough action film for the most part, but it’s […] More
