With this week marking the release of his new film The Sea of Trees, I wanted to take a look at his best work to date. Even before ... READ MORE

I love a good walk and talk movie. When you can just watch a pair of characters interact, usually while falling in love, it can sometimes lead to a special bit of cinema. This week, we have the added bonus of that sort of mellow film also being a kind of backdoor biopic of President Barack Obama. It doesn’t really reference his futu ... READ MORE

Last week, we got one of our very best looks yet at Arrival, what could be 2016’s big science fiction awards player. Yes, there’s also Passengers, to name one other, but this one has now dropped a few Trailers, so that puts it in the early lead.

This week, Teller is getting the same treatment that fellow near A-lister Jonah Hill got from me a few days ago from yours truly, in honor of their upcoming film War Dogs. Teller is very good in the film, as he pretty m ... READ MORE

I’m hardly the first one to mention it, but it’s clear to me that the summer blockbusters this year have been, well…lacking. That might be being kind too. It feels like one of the worst slates ever, at least the most disappointing. Almost every single week, something comes out that was either hotly anticipated and then u ... READ MORE
