“Win it All” is another strong pairing of Jake Johnson and Joe Swanberg

Joe Swanberg has had one of the more interesting career upswings of any independent filmmaker out there. After being one of the essential founders of the mumblecore indie movement, he made a right turn of sorts a few years back. Opting for bigger stars and similarly simple premises, he’s found[...]

The Teaser Trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok” is an absolute hoot

Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the two Thor films have been among the most forgettable. They’re not bad, but they lack personality and the fun of the rest of the MCU. Well, as you’ll see with this Teaser Trailer that debuted yesterday, Thor: Ragnarok certainly seeks to change all of[...]

I know, it’s still early. It’s April, which is absurdly early to be thinking about the Oscars. That being said, there’s certainly fun to be had in contemplating early predictions.

While the big budget Hollywood features struggle to come up with creative original ideas, independent cinema is more than picking up the slack. With the release this week of Colossal, something very unique is hitting screens. It mixes indie sensibilities with some elements of gigantic blockbusters. Weird, right? Well, that[...]

Zach Braff is back behind the camera with “Going in Style”

One of the more underrated and multidimensional talents in the industry remains Zach Braff. He is a skilled filmmaker, in addition to an actor who never gets the credit he deserves. Go back at look at Garden State, which is a near masterpiece. Then, there’s his maligned but actually quite[...]

Armie Hammer gets a solo showcase in “Mine”

It always seems like Armie Hammer is just inches away from becoming a real A list actor. He is a definite talent, one continually on the rise. It’s just a matter of getting parts befitting that rising star. This week, Hammer has a role to really sink his teeth into[...]

“Free Fire” and “The Lost City of Z”: Films to see in April

Welcome to the second quarter of 2017. Now that it’s April, we’re slowly moving out of the early year doldrums, though we’re not quite out of the woods just yet. April is sort of the splitting point. The blockbuster season is approaching, while the rougher stretch is wrapping up. The[...]

“Between Us” and “Logan”: The Best of the First Quarter of 2017
