the world to come trailer

Another year, another doomed lesbian period romance. At least, that’s what we’re going to assume considering the track record of LGBTQ feature romances following 2019’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire, which appears to have kicked off a trend of lesbian romances set exclusively in the past, primarily featuring slim white women. But it is admittedly hard to resist a movie starring both acting heavyhitters Katherine Waterston and Vanessa Kirby. Watch The World to Come trailer below.

pieces of a woman review

How do we begin to put ourselves back together after everything falls apart? After our hopes and dreams suddenly go up in smoke? That’s the sort of question that lies at the heart of the often painful Pieces of a Woman, a stark tragedy awash in the harsh coldness of a Massachusetts winter. From director Kornél Mundruczó and writer Kata Wéber, this character study benefits from a career-best performance from Vanessa Kirby as Martha, a woman undone after the death of her baby.

Mission Impossible Sequels Details

The Mission: Impossible franchise had barely begun production on the seventh installment when the coronavirus pandemic shut down movie and TV sets all over the world. Since it’s the first of two back-to-back sequels, the release dates have already been pushed back to give director Christopher McQuarrie and producer/star Tom Cruise to make sure everything is in order when the movie is allowed to resume production. Thankfully, that gave McQuarrie, as well as a couple cast members, some time to talk about what fans can expect from the two sequels. Read More »

hobbs and shaw review

The days of boosting cars and racing for pinks is long gone in the Fast & Furious world. The earliest installments in the series continue to look comically quaint in comparison to the likes of Hobbs & Shaw, although the mega movie does tip its hat to the old days of the franchise once or twice. In addition to all the globe-trotting and saving the world business expected from Fast brand, Hobbs & Shaw now brings a touch of sci-fi to the franchise. And director David Leitch seems to be having a blast with it.

The spinoff still has the tone, sensibility, and taste for the ridiculousness of a Fast & Furious movie, but more than anything else, it plays like a comic book movie. The co-founder of 87Eleven and filmmaker behind Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2 could’ve put superhero costumes on Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in this movie, and they wouldn’t have looked out of place. Leitch, as he told us, had comic book movies on his mind when making his XXX-L summer movie.
