Louis CK Movie

Last year, Louis CK delivered a surprise project in the form of the webseries Horace and Pete. It was created in secret and made an online debut that wasn’t publicized until after it was finished. Now the comedian has done the same thing with a new feature film.

Now, Louis C.K. has quietly shot a black and white movie called I Love You, Daddy, and it’s just been revealed as one of the films premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival. Find out more about the new Louis CK movie below. Read More »

The Meyerowitz Stories Trailer

Netflix is already full of Adam Sandler movies. The only problem is that most of them are downright terrible, with the only exceptions being Big Daddy and Punch-Drunk Love, the latter of which showing us what the comedian can do when he really puts the effort into giving a great performance. Thankfully, it looks like Netflix is about to get another one of those movies.

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) debuted at the Cannes Film Festival back in May, and Adam Sander received some of the best reviews ever, with some critics even saying that the film marked the finest performance of his career. It helps that the movie also features Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, and you can get a preview of the movie by watching The Meyerowitz Stories trailer below. Read More »

Michael Jackson's Thriller 3D

Michael Jackson‘s Thriller is perhaps the greatest music video of all time. It was the first music video of its kind, created as a nearly 14-minute short film that happened to have a chart-topping song playing throughout. The music video was such a publicized spectacle that it premiered at the AVCO Theatre in Los Angeles in 1983 and went on to sell out every night for three weeks straight. Thriller is also the only music video to be inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, which is a pretty big deal.

Now fans will get to experience Thriller as they never have before when it screens in 3D at the Venice Film Festival. After being announced back in 2014, the 3D conversion of the music video directed by John Landis is finally ready for audiences to see it. Find out more about Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D below.

Bodied Trailer

This sounds like a big year for Eminem. Not only does the rapper have a new album that might hit shelves before the end of the year, but he produced an outstanding new HBO documentary series called The Defiant Ones that looked at the careers of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, which paved the way for the young man named Marshall Mathers to become one of the biggest rap sensations of all time. But that’s not all Eminem has going on this year.

Bodied is a new indie heading to the Toronto International Film Festival that is produced by Eminem and said to focus on the world of rap battling. But unlike the semi-autobiographical 8 Mile, this movie is a satirical look at rap battling instead of just being one part of the story about a young, aspiring Detroit rapper just trying to get by. The Bodied trailer has debuted online before the film plays at TIFF next month and you can watch it below. Read More »

Dead Shack Review

For fans of chuckle-happy zombie schlock, I present to you Peter Ricq’s Dead Shack, a scrappy Sam-Raimi-esque vision birthed from cabin-in-the-woods campfire stories. Laughs are bloody and sentiments family-driven, but one of the more impressive aspects is a low-budget production that masks shoestring restraints (“shoestring” being relative). Gore effects are squeamish and pulpy, unblemished by budgetary shortcomings – and there’s certainly no shortage of flesh-snacking examples to choose from.

A genre film that knows how to have fun while splattering a few heads in the process? You have my attention.

another wolfcop review

Another WolfCop? Yes. “Another” means that director Lowell Dean’s howlin’ mad midnighter is indeed a sequel, and a ravenous one at that. Back again is Leo Fafard, playing Canada’s favorite donut-scarfing Lycan lawman; a fluffy beast whose moonlight methods are animalistic to the max. Criminals find themselves torn limb from limb with WolfCop once again the prowl, except this second “adventure” plays with double the obscurity. Somehow. “How does one expound upon the very premise of WolfCop,” you ask? Puppetry. Decapitations. Strippers. Moondust. Chicken Milk. Astron 6 cameos. Smacks of Alien…and maybe Mac And Me.

Did the first WolfCop leave you with a nasty genre hangover (we all have a little too much fun sometimes)? Another WolfCop is that hair o’ the dog remedy you’re looking for.

Brigsby Bear

This weekend brings the charming, quirky indie Brigsby Bear to select theaters before it expands for a wider release as the summer winds down. The movie follows a young man who tries to cope with a massive change in his life by taking solace in his love for a television show that he grew up with called Brigsby Bear Adventures. That’s really all we can tell you without spoiling an interesting turn that happens 15 minutes into the movie, something that the marketing of the movie has tried to avoid directly revealing.

If you want to know more about the story, you can read about it in our full review from the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (again, beware of spoiling a certain story point revealed early on), but if you’d rather learn more about the fictional bear at the center of the movie, then we have something you’ll want to check out below.

Ingrid Goes West Red Band Trailer

If you’re looking for some motivation to stop scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and all that nonsense, the indie dark comedy Ingrid Goes West might help cure you of your incessant desire to stay connected to everyone through your phone.

The movie, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, follows Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza as the titular social media obsessed stalker who latches on to someone she meets online, adapts her personality to become best friends with them, and inevitably ruins the relationship when she becomes way too clingy. A new red band trailer just debuted which shows how crazy Ingrid can get as she tries to impress a social media celebrity played by Elizabeth Olsen.

Watch the new Ingrid Goes West red band trailer below, but beware of NSFW language. Read More »

atomic blonde review

Note: This review originally ran following the world premiere of Atomic Blonde at the SXSW Film Festival. It is in theaters today.

In a nutshell: Atomic Blonde is about a badass, bisexual British secret agent who fights like John Wick and seduces like James Bond who travels to Germany days before the fall of the Berlin Wall to recover some stolen intelligence. She wears a number of amazing outfits, kills a whole bunch of bad guys, and just looks terrific as she struts through noisy nightclubs and desolate alleyways to a soundtrack of ’80s synth pop. It is excellent, two-fisted entertainment and further proof that Charlize Theron is one of our great modern action heroes.

In a smaller nutshell: Atomic Blonde is one of the most purely entertaining action movies coming out this year.
