F. Murray Abraham Talks His New Show, Video Games, And More

Talking to a legend can go any number of ways. Luckily, when I got on the phone last week to chat with F. Murray Abraham, he was about as surprising as it gets. Charming, disarming, eager to talk, and just overall delightful, the Oscar winning actor was an absolute joy[...]

“Bad Education” Is A Masterclass From Hugh Jackman

HBO is both a great and slightly regrettable home for Bad Education. When they picked up the movie out of the festival circuit, it was somewhat of a surprise. After all, the flick had gotten some strong awards buzz, especially for star Hugh Jackman. Would they really be going for[...]

Chris Hemsworth Can’t Do It All On His Own In “Extraction”

Without question, Chris Hemsworth is one of Hollywood’s biggest action stars. Playing Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will do that for you.

“To The Stars” Highlights Liana Liberato In An Uneven Melodrama

Melodrama has somewhat become a relic of cinema’s past. To be sure, we get melodramatic movies still being released, but true melodrama has largely gone away. The new movie To the Stars seeks to bring melodramas back, and up until the tail end of the third act, it succeeds. Some[...]

“True History Of The Kelly Gang” Is An Impressionistic Take On An Old Story

Sometimes, old can be new again. It isn’t always what story being told, but how it’s being told. In the case of True History of the Kelly Gang, filmmaker Justin Kurzel is taking a unique and almost punk rock approach to the classic Ned Kelly legend. It’s a brash and[...]

Warner Bros. Moves “The Batman” Release Date (And More)

The longer that the film industry remains shuttered by the Coronavirus pandemic, the more of a ripple effect that’s going to be seen once things are back to normal (or whatever passes for normal). One such impact is going to be in future release dates. Productions that either haven’t started[...]

“Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films Of All Time: Volume 1” Enjoyably Tackles Midnight Madness

I’m a sucker for documentaries about cinema. There’s just something about a doc looking inward on its own medium that compels me. Perhaps it’s just the cinephile in me, yearning to learn as much as possible about as many films as possible? That’s a possibility, but it also could just[...]
