Review: Iron Sky: The Coming Race

Hey kids, do you remember Sarah Palin? What feels like centuries ago, in the years bordering 2010, the former Alaska governor became something of a firebrand when she ran with John McCain's doomed 2008 presidential bid. The thought of this ...

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek will be his last film, if made

A number of oddball headlines make their way through the film news beat, with word about potential ideas and productions being just that and never coming to fruition. The news of Quentin Tarantino making a successful pitch to J.J. Abrams fo...

Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. 2012 is unique when looking at the trajectory of t...

Review: Stuber

It is no secret that I am a fan of wrestlers in movies. I'm also a massive fan of buddy cop movies, which you can learn more about in this weekend's FlixList. So when I found out that former WWE Champion and Guardians of the Galaxy comedy l...

The Tracker sounds like a long lost 80s romp

The Tracker is a new film starring Dolph Lundgren that looks like a long lost 80s action romp. It casts Lundgren as a "troubled warrior who returns home to solve the mystery of his family's murder." In all honesty, it looks boring as hell,...

Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 6 Episode 7 - "Toldja"

As disparate this season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been, and despite my being the only person in the fandom to feel disappointed by last week's episode, I'm overall digging what I see. Even though I couldn't tell you what this season is...

Could the Wachowskis return to direct the new Matrix film?

Hollywood is a fickle, temperamental child of a world, changing its collective mind faster than an adolescent grabs, drops, and cries about ice cream. So with that odd anecdote in mind, there are fresh rumblings in the world of the next Mat...

Liam Hemsworth is a killer, man in trailer for Killerman

Got to be honest--I'm not feeling this trailer for Killerman. Hemsworth has some emotional intensity that I like, but as a whole I'm not sure I buy him as a hardened criminal. The worst bit, though, is the amnesia angle that sees Hemsworth...

Review: Men in Black: International

As a franchise, Men in Black feels like it has justified its continued existence within the sphere of pop culture. Launching hot off the heels of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith was a star, and Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K was the gruff...

Review: Dark Phoenix

The storm of production woes and legal hand-overs surrounding Dark Phoenix, the latest and final entry in this cinematic iteration of Marvel's X-Men, has no doubt swayed the public in one way or another. Some of us were calling it quits bef...

Review: Godzilla: King of the Monsters

In the first minutes of Godzilla: King of the Monsters we're transported back to 2014, to replay events from that year's Godzilla. San Francisco lies in ruins, and we're set on course for the story of this new monster saga. Right off the ba...

Rambo Last Blood's trailer bleeds the franchise dry

Sylvester Stallone has been on a kick recently of tackling his old, iconic roles in new and interesting ways. I never realized I wanted to see a Rocky movie where Rocky became Mickey, but that's exactly what Creed delivered in spades. It w...

Review: Rondo

Rondo is a weird blend of half-intentional and half-probably-not-intentional weirdness, humor, and spectacle. Sometimes actors forget to act and just say their lines. Sometimes they gleefully nosh the scenery like it's made of cotton candy....

Deep Analysis: Mad Max: Fury Road

Action films can be so difficult to discuss, and even before that they’re difficult to qualify. You think of Die Hard and Commando, and clearly those fit our notion of what an “action movie” is. But is Heat an action movie...

Terminator: Dark Fate goes hunting in first trailer

Well, if you're going to reignite excitement over a franchise that I'd struggle to still call a franchise at this point this trailer is the way to do it. Taking the cliche tactic of playing a slow, dramatic cover of a song over an action m...

The cast is set for Christopher Nolan's Tenet

Though details are still sparse, I think for many even the smallest morsel of information on a new Christopher Nolan film is something we can all at least dream of getting excited about. Today brings news of new additions to the cast of the...

Review: Avengement

Avengement is an objectively dumb title. Yes, it's a correct description of what occurs in the film (dude gets mad vengeance), but it's not a word anyone really uses, and it's bound to make this flick dissolve at least somewhat into the bac...

The inevitable John Wick 4 has been confirmed

If you've seen the end of John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum then you know that it wasn't really the end. In fact, I'd argue the film was much akin to Infinity War in that it set up the greater conflict to come and felt more like ...
