“Mad Max: Fury Road”: Ten Films to Look Forward to in May

SXSW buzz makes “Trainwreck” a comedy to watch out for

Yesterday evening, folks at South By Southwest (or SXSW) got to see an early glimpse at Trainwreck, the new film from A-list comedy director Judd Apatow. Penned by and starring Amy Schumer, the pairing of those minds held tons of potential, so I was waiting with baited breath to hear[...]

2015 MTV Movie Award nominations are more respectable than usual

Yesterday, the MTV Movie Award nominations were announced for 2015. Normally, that’s not the sort of thing that I care even a little bit about, but lo and behold…the films and performances cited happen to be far more respectable than normal. The nominations were led by The Fault in Our[...]
