Netflix has confirmed that Disenchantment, a fantasy comedy by Simpsons creator Matt Groening, will be returning to the streaming juggernaut on September 20, 2019. Not an entire season, this will be part two of what premiered last year in A...

Review: Saint Bernard

Saint Bernard is dreamlike moreso than most movies that attempt this distinction. Its journey of a music conductor into the mouth of madness works in symbol and metaphor with gleeful breaks in logic. Moments and places only mesh in that our...

Fox has pulled the plug on the Lethal Weapon series

Fox has announced that its TV series Lethal Weapon, an adaptation of the once-popular film franchise, has been cancelled. After a tumultuous first two seasons led to the firing of co-lead Clayne Crawford, the show started a troubled third s...

Review: The Hustle

My recommendation for seeing The Hustle? Just rent the original, which is a remake itself. The Hustle, despite its name change and gender swapping, is often a shot-for-shot remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. I thought it was strange that th...

Review: Long Shot

Things started on a high note at the SXSW 2019 premiere of the Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen headliner comedy Long Shot. Upon entry to the Paramount theater, staff distributed free drink vouchers. It was either a semi-transparent ploy...

See Poms early and free

I think there's a new sub-genre being born. It's lightly raunchy comedies starring casts of older women. I'm not sure why it's here, but if it does well and delivers some good movies then I'm happy to have it. Poms is the next installm...

Gravity Falls writer creating adult animated show for Netflix

It's surprisingly enjoyable to see a show's production slowly develop. From initial announcements, to talent hirings, the first trailer, and finally the inevitable release all help build up the small hype train we all have inside us. Someti...

Meat is murder in trailer for The Young Cannibals

Don't you just hate it when you and your mates are out camping at a secluded site and here comes this old man trundling along offering some fat and delicious burgers, but then you find out that they're actually made of human flesh and now ...

Mark Hamill says three measly words in Child's Play trailer

"Good night, Andy." That's it. That's all we get out of Mark Hamill (at the very end of the trailer, of course) after this stupidly long succession of teases following the announcement that he would be voicing the serial-killing doll for t...

See The Long Shot early and free

Have you been in the mood for an actually good romantic comedy? Well, since we got to check out Long Shot at SXSW I can indeed tell you that it's actually good. It's both surprisingly touching and thoughtful. You don't have to take our...

Review: The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

The movie in your head is sometimes better than the actual movie. Think of the hype engendered by seeing good trailers and clips, or reading teases of the plot and descriptions of big scenes. The imagination fills in the gaps so well that t...

Review: Rottentail

Rottentail chokes a man using Easter egg-shaped turds that he "laid" himself. An army general takes a male-enhancement potion before being called to duty and patrols bloody halls of corpses and limbs with a full erection. When Rottentail ki...

I want to snort this trailer for Saint Bernard

Sometimes you see a movie that speaks to who you are at your core, a movie so perfectly in touch with your insides that you have trouble imagining that it's not an animated brain scan of your very subconscious--sometimes that includes a gi...

See Shazam! early and free

Want to see Shazam! before anyone... no, wait. They did that super early screening thing. Plus, our review is already up. Still, not that many people saw it then so do you want to see Shazam! before most other people and for free?...

Review: Arrested Development - Season Five Part Two

When Netflix originally announced that it would be reviving Arrested Development for a fourth season, fans were ecstatic. The irreverent and off-beat comedy got screwed over by Fox and killed off long before it should have. While the show d...

Review: Relaxer

Nostalgia-baiting is something I'm not too familiar with. I'm not fond of superheroes, and I wasn't alive in the 80's, so I figured myself to be pretty well nostalgia-proof when it comes to the film industry. I can't be manipulated. I can't...

Review: Book of Monsters

Book of Monsters is the first Kickstarter funded film I've seen. This one billed itself as the horror movie where YOU could choose the monsters -- a novel enough idea in which backers could choose from six categories: The monsters, a charac...

Fire up the propane, Mike Judge just got paid at HBO

Mike Judge played second fiddle for a while in his career. After outright producing the work of the devil, Judge's King of the Hill, while wildly successful and lasting 13 seasons, would be also-ran to The Simpsons and then Family Guy ...

SXSW Review: Porno

I love a good horror/comedy mashup like Porno, which debuted at SXSW this year, and when you splatter the screen with gore I'll probably love it even more. Take my glowing review of Snatchers, which also debuted at SXSW, as proof if you nee...
