murder mystery sequel

How many more must die before Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are satisfied? Two? Ten? These bloodthirsty actors will only keep killing more with each Murder Mystery that we get, and yet Netflix has already greenlit a sequel. Netflix is already developing a Murder Mystery sequel shortly after the crime comedy debuted on the streaming platform this summer.

Ride Your Wave Review

Masaaki Yuasa has made a career out of weird yet beautifully crafted anime. From the trippy and enthralling Mind Game, to the loopy Lu Over The Wall, and even the brutally graphic and unforgiving DEVILMAN crybaby, you know you’re in for a ride when his name comes out in the credits. Though at first glance his newest feature, Ride Your Wave, may seem like his most accessible film yet, it still offers an emotional and eye-popping visual feast that is as cheesy and predictable as it is charming, touching and funny. Tears may be shed, and you’ll have the theme song stuck in your head for days. Read More »

David Harbour Hosting Saturday Night Live

Based on David Harbour‘s general enthusiasm in any given situation, we knew that he would have plenty of fun hosting Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, it seems like the writers might have been tired in their third episode in a row, because the sketches were rather middling in their comedy. Thankfully, there were a couple of great standout sketches, including one that has David Harbour giving a Joker-inspired gritty take on Oscar the Grouch.

Without further adieu, let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the David Harbour hosted Saturday Night Live.

Dolittle Trailer

After starring in the highest grossing film of all time this year, Robert Downey Jr. is slumming it with a bunch of animals in Victorian England early next year.

Dolittle puts a new spin on the classic tale of the man known for talking to animals. Looking like a cross between Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes and Life of Pi, the first Dolittle trailer shows off what feels like a haphazard adventure that just so happens to involve Dr. Dolittle. After you watch, you’ll understand why this movie is coming out in January next year. Read More »

Fewer trailers

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week, we try to end it all, get arty, pledge allegiance to Slayer, and see what will soon be in the dollar theater a week after it’s released. Read More »

klaus featurette

Christmas has come early for old-school fans of traditional 2D animation.

Pablos wants to bring back the age of traditional animation, when CG-animation wasn’t the norm. In a new Klaus featurette released by Netflix, Pablos explains how he married the traditional animation process with CG innovations to create a truly unique-looking film.

The Shed Review

Vampires have gotten a bad rap in recent years, losing a lot of the mysticism, romanticism and sheer horror that usually come with creatures of the night. Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet director Frank Sabatella wants to bring vampires back to their roots with a film that is part drama about bullied teens and part sci-fi movie about a kid hiding a fantastical creature in their house a la Mac and Me, but instead of a Coca-Cola loving alien, it’s a bloodthirsty vampire living in a shed.

The result is The Shed, a dark and poignant look at bullying and how easy it is to fall into a dark path of revenge, while also being a traditional horror movie.
