It’s not quite “Grumpy Old Men on the Appalachian Trail,” but A Walk in the Woods mines the memoir by Bill Bryson for the story of two old guys, played by Robert Redford and Nick Nolte, as reconnected friends of old who take to the two-thousand mile trail. The adventure is an excuse for some light, genial comedy as the two struggle through nature, and a few great comic actors, such as Kristen Schaal and Nick Offerman even show up to lend a hand once in a while. You’ll see it all on display in this A Walk in the Woods trailer. Read More »

Just ahead of Seinfeld‘s Hulu premiere, two of the show’s stars are reuniting for a much more modest venture: a quick drive and a cup of coffee. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is dropping by the sixth season of Jerry Seinfeld‘s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, along with Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Steve Harvey, Bill Maher, and Jim Carrey.

Moving on from a bad relationship is tough even under the best circumstances. It’s infinitely more difficult when your ex comes back as a zombie determined to sabotage your rebound relationship and/or eat you alive. That’s what happens in Burying the Ex, Joe Dante‘s first film since 2009’s The Hole.
Anton Yelchin plays hapless Max, whose relationship with Evelyn (Ashley Greene) has gone downhill. Just as he musters up the courage to dump her, she dies in a freak accident. Max subsequently gets involved with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), only to discover soon afterward that Evelyn’s back from the dead and eager to rekindle their romance.

Back in April, a big chunk of 90s nostalgia was announced to be revived when we learned Netflix had ordered Fuller House, a television series sequel to the hit sitcom Full House. Pretty much everyone from the original series was confirmed to come back in some capacity for this new series, with the exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. While producers had hoped that the duo responsible for playing Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in the family, would make an appearance, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen.
Get the details on the Olsen twins in Fuller House below. Read More »
We’ve been talking a lot about Mad Max: Fury Road for the past couple weeks, and one reason is that it is, as I argued in my review of the film, incredibly precise and clear storytelling from a visual perspective. There is virtually nothing as good as Fury Road in action films of late. But there is in older work, such as the remarkable run of ’80s and early ’90s movies from Jackie Chan.
A couple weeks ago I came across a video essay that is itself very precise about breaking down just what works in Chan’s films, and why. I’ve watched this essay many times now, and despite the fact that it isn’t “new,” having debuted late last year, I wanted to share it as an explanation of exactly how and why some visual storytelling works so well.
Whether you aspire to make films, or just want to gain a better understanding of how they work, you must watch this video.

Dope has been making waves since Sundance, but the first trailers have only partially showed off what’s really up with the film. This new Dope red-band trailer goes a lot further, by presenting the characters uncensored, and by showing off a lot more of the story that drives the film. It’s more than a sunny tale of three high school kids (played well by Shameik Moore, Kiersey Clemons, and Tony Revolori) trying to survive school and their neighborhood, after all. Check out the trailer below to find out more. Read More »
