    Sylvester Stallone Plans a Fifth ‘Rambo’ Film

    Of all the A-list action heroes from back in the day, none were more into creating franchises than Sylvester Stallone. Early on, he took “Rocky” and made a sequel, then another, then another, and so on. Years later, he even took the idea of an aging action star and made another franchise out of it […] More

    ‘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

    WATCH: Trailer For ‘The First Purge’ Shows Us A Deadly Origin Story

    For as bad as “The Purge” series has been, quality wise, the marketing for these films has been tremendous. Especially for “The Purge: Election Year” and recently for “The First Purge,” leaning into the Donald Trump comparisons have been brilliant. The posters, in particular, have been nothing short of satirically perfect. In fact, Trump recently […] 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

    Film Review: ‘A Bad Moms Christmas’ Nearly Sabotages Its Own Sloppy Fun

    On the surface, a Christmas sequel appears to be the ultimate cash grab. Take an existing, successful property and see what the characters do around the holidays. However, a little snow and Santa Clause can be the ultimate band-aid for unoriginality. In fact, many series, such as “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” has experienced highs during […] More
