Molly's Game Reviews

The Toronto International Film Festival is in full swing, and one of the movies we were most excited to hear about was the directorial debut of The Social Network and A Few Good Men writer Aaron Sorkin. If the reviews from the festival are any indicator, not only does Sorkin have another fantastic movie to add to his career, but Jessica Chastain can add another acclaimed performance to her résumé.

Molly’s Game follows a former Olympic skier who turned from the sudden end of her athletic career to a thriving business throwing poker games for Hollywood celebrities, business tycoons and plenty of exclusive high rollers. To find out what critics are saying about Aaron Sorkin’s first turn at directing his own script, read out round-up of Molly’s Game reviews below. Read More »

Lemon trailer

Brett Gelman can simultaneously make one laugh as they want to cringe and shrivel up into a ball. He does so often on Netflix’s Love, but he’s brought that particularly great skillset to other comedies over the years. Gelman recently co-wrote and starred in a film which looks like it’ll have some good uneasy laughs, Lemon, which is co-written and directed by Janicza Bravo.

Person to Person Trailer

Countless films have tried to capture the aimless, buoyant spirit of New York City — and now we have another to add to the list.

Person to Person is an indie film from rising director Dustin Guy Defa that follows an ensemble cast — including the It Boy of indie dramedies, Michael Cera — of disparate characters as they grapple with various obstacles. And because this is an indie film, the film takes place over the course of one day.

Twin Peaks review part 3 and 4

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

Last week, Showtime unveiled the two-part premiere of Twin Peaks (or Twin Peaks: The Return, as it’s being called on their website). The premium channel dropped parts 3 and 4 online immediately afterwards, and then aired those back to back on the traditional channel last night, marking the final time until September’s season finale that they’ll release two parts in a row on a Sunday evening.

Ahead, we dive into the best scenes of parts 3 and 4, including Cooper’s trip through space and the jaw-dropping introduction of a new character named Wally Brando.

LEGO Batman Movie Clips

Now that it’s officially February, we just nine short days away from seeing The LEGO Batman Movie in theaters. And since Ben Affleck recently dropped out of directing The Batman for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment, it’s about the only Batman project we’re still pumped for right now.

In the last marketing run leading up to the film’s release next week, Warner Bros. Animation has released a batch of new clips from The LEGO Batman Movie, two of which prominently feature Michael Cera as Robin (discovering the Batcave and partaking in some kind of heist with LEGO Batman) and the other of which features a confrontation with the Joker (Zack Galifianakis) and Batman himself (Will Arnett).

The Lego Batman Movie featurette

Batman may fancy himself a lone wolf type, but he has a recurring habit of getting roped into teams. Like the Justice League, in this fall’s Justice League, or the Bat family, in next month’s The Lego Batman Movie. A new “behind the bricks” featurette gets up close and personal with Lego Batman and his teammates, including Robin (Michael Cera), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), and Alfred (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, Lego Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and Harley Quinn (Jenny Slate) just seem to be lounging around their lair, waiting for Batman to notice them.  Read More »

The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spots

LEGO Batman may have a mansion, plenty of wonderful toys, and a loyal butter, but he has zero friends. The caped crusader keeps busy saving Gotham and doesn’t have the best social skills, so he’s a bit of a loner in desperate need of a pal. The LEGO Batman Movie — which director Chris McKay describes as a cross between Michael Mann and About a Boy — follows Batman on his quest for happiness.

The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spot

We’re just a little over a month away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, giving us the building block version of The Dark Knight, who stole more than a few scenes in The LEGO Movie a few years back. Will Arnett is back in the lead voice role, and quite the assembly of talent surrounds him, playing various characters from Batman’s mythology, some of which we’ve never seen on the big screen before. But a new TV spot focuses on one of Batman’s staple characters, his loyal sidekick Robin.

Michael Cera voices The Boy Wonder, but this version of Batman is just as resistant to working with a partner (or anyone really), simply because he’s afraid of losing anyone who gets close to him again. It’s actually kind of sweet, even if LEGO Batman isn’t a fan of hugs. You’ll see what I mean in a new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spot after the jump. Read More »
