Last Tarantino Movie

It’s that time again – time for Quentin Tarantino to bring up his potential Star Trek movie and also his possible retirement. Tarantino has teased both his Trek film and his plans to retire after making ten movies. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is being billed as Tarantino’s ninth, which begs the question: is Star Trek going to be his last movie, or does he count that as something separate, and do we still have one more original Tarantino movie on the horizon as well? The filmmaker has weighed in, and it looks like he might just call it quits after Trek. Maybe.

Marvel's Storyboards

When you’re done scrolling through the gold mines of Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars content on Disney+, Marvel hopes you’re going to be interested enough in its brand to check out a newly-announced non-fiction series called Marvel’s Storyboards. Sadly, this is not a deep dive into the art of creating storyboards for comics or movies (although that sounds like it’d be entertaining, too). Instead, this short-form original series will track Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada around the world as he interviews interesting people – including Hugh Jackman, who’s slated to be a guest in the first season.

Rocko's Modern Life Static Cling Teaser

It’s been three years since Nickelodeon announced it would be digging into the ’90s for a nostalgic revival of the beloved animated series Rocko’s Modern Life in the form of a TV movie. The show remains one of the most beloved NickToons from the kids cable network’s heyday, and fans have been patiently waiting for the TV movie. Thankfully, they won’t have to wait much longer.

Rocko’s Modern Life Static Cling was meant to arrive last year, but when 2018 came and went without the return of Rocko, Spunky, Heffer, Filburt, and the rest of the gang, we knew something was amiss. But earlier this year we learned Netflix was picking up the TV movie, and now we have a teaser that lets us know it will arrive on the streaming service in August. Watch the Rocko’s Modern Life Static Cling teaser below. Read More »

night hunter trailer

Night Hunter was stuck between a rock and a hard place: go with a tantalizing, vague title like Nomis that would probably get mispronounced to hell, or adopt a generic, hyper-masculine title like Night Hunter. The David Raymond film obviously went with the latter.

The thing about a title like Night Hunter is that it’s both too specific and too vague — sure, it’s about a person who hunts at night, but what does that mean? In this case, the hunter in the title refers to a serial killer who at the beginning of the film is arrested — but that doesn’t stop him from taking more lives with every passing second, despite the efforts of Henry Cavill, Alexandria Daddario, and Ben Kingsley. Watch the Night Hunter trailer below.

terminator dark fate plot

Ask a person to summarize the Terminator timeline, and you might just drive them insane enough to create a world-destroying AI technology. James Cameron’s first 1984 sci-fi/horror movie and its 1991 sequel, T2: Judgment Day, were straightforward enough action movies with some admittedly loose approaches to time travel. But things went downhill from there — both creatively and canonically — as sequels, spin-offs, and reboots fudged the timeline up even more.

But director Tim Miller promises all that will change with Terminator: Dark Fate. The upcoming Terminator sequel stands apart from the other films, Miller says, because the Terminator Dark Fate plot deals directly with the consequences of Sarah Connor’s (Linda Hamilton) critical action in T2.

Alligator II Review

(Welcome to DTV Descent, a series that explores the weird and wild world of direct-to-video sequels to theatrically released movies. This week’s journey can be blamed on the new movie Crawl which left me with a hankering for more alligator fun.)

This past weekend saw the wide-release arrival of a creature feature, and we’re all better off for it. All. Of. Us. They’re good fun and a nice break for horror fans from the ghost stories that typically make it to theaters. Crawl is a killer alligator flick, and a pretty great one at that, but while it’s the latest it’s far from the first.

Sergio Martino’s The Great Alligator (1979) probably has that honor, but it’s 1980’s Alligator that set a high bar for gator fun. It’s one of the best stabs at piggy-backing on the Jaws (1975) formula, and as is befitting of its greatness the film earned a sequel. Unfortunately, but necessarily for the purpose of this column, Alligator II: The Mutation went straight to DVD.

Did it deserve a better fate, or does it belong in the sewers? Keep reading as this week’s descent into the world of direct-to-video sequels pits a modern-day dinosaur against Joseph Bologna.

the kitchen trailer

Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss seem like an odd combination for a ’70s mob drama, but The Kitchen might be the perfect melting pot for these two comedians and the Emmy-winning actress. The drama (not a comedy!) stars the trio as the wives of mobsters who decide to take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands. Watch The Kitchen trailer below.
