the boy 2 clip

Have you heard the good news? Brahms is back. Yes, Brahms, the titular boy from The Boy, is ready to return in Brahms: The Boy 2. If you’ve seen the first film, you know by now that despite marketing to the contrary, the original The Boy was not about a killer doll. So just how the heck does that figure into the sequel? We don’t know yet. But we do know the doll is back, and his presence is inspiring all sorts of mischief. In a newly released The Boy 2 clip below, you can see Brahms sitting around being creepy while a kid ends up getting impaled. It’s fun for the whole family!

Attention folks lucky enough to live near an Alamo Drafthouse: the Alamo Drafthouse Season Pass program is now available in all 41 locations. The subscription program allows moviegoers one regularly priced ticket per day, with reservations available seven days in advance. It’s kind of like MoviePass, except that it’s better and it still exists. So I guess on second thought it’s not like MoviePass at all.

mulan pg-13

As you might have noticed, all of Disney’s recent live-action remakes of their animated films have scored PG ratings – until now. Mulan just landed a PG-13 rating, making it the first of these remakes to suggest something slightly more mature than what we’ve seen from Disney so far. The rating is due to “sequences of violence”, which makes sense since the story involves the main character going off to war. But the original 1998 film did as well – and still managed a G rating. So just how violent does the new Mulan get?

devs review

When approaching Devs, there’s one rule worth keeping in mind: Pay attention. That may seem like a no-brainer, but more often than not these days, TV viewers tend to only half-watch shows – one eye on the TV, the other on the phone for some live-tweeting. You can certainly try to watch Devs this way, but if you, do be warned: You’ll get lost in the woods, wandering around aimlessly in a futile search for familiar landmarks that never present themselves. Devs is dense – a layered, near-hypnotic saga that pulls you further and further down a virtual rabbit hole into dark wonderlands.
