Huh, CBS's streaming service is doing pretty alright

We've already reached the point where subscribing to different streaming services is basically like choosing what channels you want in your cable package, except for the fact that they offer more content for less money and are all-around be...

New Invisible Man film makes Dark Universe disappear!

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen wasn't all bad. There was that inside out looking Hyde mosnter, a neat effect with John Dorian, and Sean Connery being utterly exasperated at how this would be the movie that made him quit acting. There...

2 Avatar sequels are finished with principal photography

James Cameron is a man on a very strange mission: flood the world with enough Avatar media in hopes that when the workhorse of a director reveals he's really an alien with blue skin, we'll still love and accept him. That is the on...

Taron "Eggsy"erton won't appear in third Kingsman film

I've only briefly touched upon my utter adoration for Taron Egerton (and Ansel Elgort) when I reviewed Billionaire Boy's Club, but please dear reader do not mistake: I have the biggest man crush on this beautiful Welshman. He knocked his pe...

Last week I saw The Sister's Brothers, a dramatic western starring John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal and Joaquin Phoenix. I think about 4 people saw it on release, but the movie was rad and everyone had great performances. One very noticeable...

When I was six, I stumbled across the very first episode for the opening of Alias, the spy show that catapulted Jennifer Gardner and JJ Abrams into our pop culture brains. It was quite unfortunate, because I saw the scene where Garner's cha...

Let me get my dig in upfront about how a potential sequel to the worst sequel ever is totally fine and definitely not capitalism squeezing out my last gasp of creative hope for Hollywood. Nope, just another Wednesday where once excitin...

I feel like I've been availed with trailers for A Star is Born since last year. This movie has a lot going on so it needed the head start: Bradley Cooper writing, producing and directing, Lady Gaga (billed as Lady Gaga) in her fir...
