power rangers clips

Ever since the first teaser trailer, it’s been obvious that director Dean Israelite‘s upcoming Power Rangers movie was going for something of a Chronicle vibe, blending science fiction and adventure with down-to-earth teen angst. A new series of clips manage to simultaneously stick to that tone while also presenting something a whole lot goofier. Let’s give them a watch and pick them apart, shall we?

atomic blonde review

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.

Yesterday, Sony stopped beating around the bush and made it all official: the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will arrive on October 5, 2018, with Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez stepping in for David Fincher. However, Alvarez wouldn’t be the only newcomer to the series. As expected, original stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig will not be returning, which means that the hunt is on for a new Lisbeth Salander and a new Mikael Blomkvist. For the former, Sony and Alvarez apparently have their eyes on a few big names.

the disaster artist review

The most surprising thing about The Disaster Artist, James Franco‘s adaptation of Greg Sestero’s book of the same name, is that it doesn’t have a mean-spirited bone in its body. Here’s a film about the making of The Room, one of the worst and most baffling movies to ever achieve cult infamy, told with sincerity, sweetness, and pure affection. Franco isn’t here to laugh at The Room – he’s here to laugh with it. The Disaster Artist has no scorn for its subject. Instead, it is fascinated by this impossible-t0-believe tale and the impossible-to-believe movie it produced. No irony. No scorn. Only love.

And that makes a movie whose existence already feels impossible feel all the more unlikely and all the more wonderful.
