Just a few years ago, Tim Heidecker starred in a bleak and strangely amusing look into the life of a comedian with the indie The Comedy, a Sundance selected film from director Rick Alverson. This time it’s Gregg Turkington, better known as stand-up comedian Neil Hamburger, taking us into the tortured psyche of a stand-up comedian, stuck in comedy purgatory.
Alverson is back behind the camera again with Entertainment, and the first trailer for the indie film has just arrived, showcasing Turkington’s oddball movie about an aging comedian still struggling as a small-time performer. It’s odd and fascinating, but doesn’t look like it’s going to be everybody’s cup of tea. Watch the Entertainment trailer after the jump! Read More »

If you’ve ever taken an introductory psychology class, you’ve probably heard of the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment. The idea behind the experiment was to take student volunteers and put them into a simulated jail where some of the students were made to be prisoners and others were made to be guards. The intention was to study human nature, but those conducting the experiment didn’t realize the humanity part of the experiment would go out the window so quickly.
The aptly titled indie The Stanford Prison Experiment chronicles the results of the test as the unfold, and the result is an unnerving drama that shows you how prison, whether you’re a prisoner or a guard, can change a person entirely.

John Travolta could probably use a win right about now. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like his next film will be it. The Forger stars Travolta as a thief tasked with replicating a painting by Claude Monet, so that he can make off with the original.
He’s abetted by his father (Christopher Plummer) and son (Tye Sheridan), and hampered by the truly terrible wig atop his head. Seriously, who’s going to believe this guy can forge a Monet when he can’t even convincingly fake his own hair? Watch The Forger trailer after the jump. Read More »
In Rodrigo Garcia‘s beautiful and lush film Last Days in the Desert, the journey is uncertain for a while. We follow Jesus, played by Ewan McGregor, as he enters the desert on a journey for truth. “Father, speak to me,” he says. As he walks and thinks, he begins to see visions of Satan, also played by McGregor. He meets a family out in the desert, and the audience may initially wonder what those people are doing out there. But eventually it clicks. We realize the point, just as Jesus probably realizes the point in the narrative, and the film blossoms into something beautiful but not entirely fulfilling. Read more of our Last Days in the Desert review below. Read More »

Bryan Singer is preparing to shoot the next X-Men movie, X-Men Apocalypse, which takes place after Days of Future Past. That means the younger First Class cast will be around, but a new generation of X-Men — the generation which is already grown in the original series of films — has to come on board. Specifically, that means the characters Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm, played by Famke Janssen, James Marsden and Halle Berry in the previous movies.
We’d heard rumblings of some major actresses being up for the Jean Grey role but they’ve all moved on. Now there’s a new crop of actors not only up for Jean Grey, but Cyclops and Storm as well. Find out who might join the X-Men Apocalypse cast below. Read More »
