“Deadpool″ and “Everybody Wants Some”: The Best of the First Quarter of 2016

Much like I said around this time last year…time flies. Believe it or not, we’re now three full months into the 2016 movie calendar, which means we’re literally a quarter of the way through the film slate for the year. That got me thinking about what the best of the[...]

“Everybody Wants Some” is one of the year’s biggest delights

I knew going in to see Richard Linklater’s new film Everbody Wants Some earlier this week that it was likely to appeal to me. What I didn’t expect was a near masterpiece and perhaps an instant cult classic. I absolutely adored this movie and really think it’s among the best[...]

“Miles Ahead” showcases Don Cheadle as a filmmaker

Last year at the New York Film Festival, I saw the fest wrap up with the directorial debut of actor Don Cheadle. It was the biopic Miles Ahead, a passion project of Cheadle’s that he’d been trying to get off the ground for years. It played at the Closing Night[...]

Richard Linklater continues to be one of the most exciting filmmakers in the business

It was just about two years ago when filmmaker Richard Linklater finally unveiled his long brewing passion project Boyhood to the world and finally became the awards magnet that many thought he would eventually turn into. The thing about Linklater is, no matter what he’s currently up to, he has[...]

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has a record setting box office haul

Over the holiday weekend, audiences turned out in droves for the long awaited matchup/team-up on film between The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. Yes, the last few days saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice make a ton of money at the box office, so much so that[...]

“I Saw the Light” is another would be Oscar biopic

Back in the midst of 2015, it seemed like the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light was all set to be a big Academy Award player. Considering how small this week’s platform release of the film is, as well as its middling festival circuit reception, that seems less than[...]

Ethan Hawke hits all the right notes in “Born to Be Blue”

If you’re anything like me, you’re a pretty big fan of Ethan Hawke. Over the years, Hawke has been among the most consistent and interesting actors in Hollywood. He floats in and out of the studio system at ease, keeping a presence both in blockbusters occasionally as well as often[...]

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” explodes on to screens

It’s finally happened. After years of false starts, Batman and Superman finally share the screen. Last night, I saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and I can report that it is far from a disaster, as some have tried to put out there. Honestly, it’s a flawed yet very[...]

What might play this year at the Cannes Film Festival?

Much like I said last year around this time, when it comes to film festivals, there is arguably none more prestigious than the Cannes Film Festival. Each year, critics and the like descend on the south of France hoping to discover the classiest in cinema, which in turn can begin[...]

Miles Teller shines in the long delayed comedy “Get a Job”

For literally years now, I’d been looking forward to seeing Get a Job, the new (or newish, in this case now) film from Dylan Kidd. Last week, after an incredibly long delay/time spent sitting on the shelf, I finally saw the flick, which will be hitting theaters this Friday. I’m[...]
