First trailer for Netflix's Stranger Things

When J.J. Abrams delivered Super 8 to us I reveled in its unabashed homage of classic Spielberg adventure films. I kind of wondered why it hadn't kicked off a bit of a renaissance of the 1980s supernatural film, but alas it was not to ...

 
 
Pacific Rim 2 photo

Pacific Rim 2 comes roaring back with John Boyega

Man, did I want a Pacific Rim 2 to happen. Not because I especially loved the first one, but because I thought it wasted a ton of potential that a second move could capitalize on. It didn't look like we ever would see a sequel until su...

Check out the first teaser for CBS's new Star Trek

News of a new Star Trek got me very excited, especially when I heard it would take place in the original universe not Abrams. I enjoy Abrams verse, actually, but I think a TV show is better suited for the old verse. This teaser doesn't...

 
 
Tetris Trilogy photo

Tetris is getting a big budget, Chinese trilogy

This year we have four videogame adaptations hitting theaters and there's no sign of stopping anytime soon. The only problem with this is none of these films look particularly gripping with Warcraft, Assassin's Creed, and The Angry Bir...

Fox Exec says everyone will be back for new X-Files season

I watched X-Files when I was growing up like Malcom McDowll watched propaganda. You couldn't tear my eyes away. I couldn't even finish the season 10 reboot. That's why it's with much trepidation that I'm reporting that Fox CEO and...

 
 
Review: Equals photo

Tribeca Review: Equals

Any society that appears outwardly utopian is really just a nicely packaged dystopia. The orgiastic bacchanal of Logan's Run was really just an ugly form of institutionalized ignorance and population control. Gattaca was a stylish eugenics ...

 
 
 
Hardcore Review photo

Review: Hardcore Henry

From its inception as music videos for director Ilya Naishuller's band Biting Elbows, Hardcore Henry boasted an unique central idea: crafting a well told action film entirely through the first person perspective on Go Pro cameras. Its many ...

First trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Gareth Edwards is directing a Star Wars movie. The man who has helped to redefine how you direct large objects hurtling at each other has his hands on the Death Star and all of a galaxy far, far away. I mean, that's a fact that is real...

 
 
RIP Erik Bauersfeld photo

RIP Erik Bauersfeld (1922-2016)

While you may not know Erik Bauersfeld by name, he's the man behind one of the most memorable moments in Return of the Jedi. As the Rebel Alliance fleet closes in on the second Death Star, Lando realizes the shields are still up and orders ...

 
 
Review: Evolution photo

ND/NF Review: Evolution

There's so much going for Lucile Hadzihalilovic's Evolution, a film expertly lensed from the deliberate first shot: looking up to the sky from underwater. From beneath, the ripples and waves on the ocean surface produce undulating shadows, ...

 
 
Divergent photo

Review: The Divergent Series: Allegiant - Part 1

When the first film in the Divergent series came out it was pretty obvious what was going on. Lionsgate wanted a Hunger Games so they found a young adult series with a post-apocalyptic setting and cast an up-and-coming starlet. Th...

 
 
10 Cloverfield Lane photo

Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

J.J. Abrams loves his mystery boxes, and the marketing campaign around 10 Cloverfield Lane is so darn mystery box-y: a movie seemingly made in secret, a release scheduled just two months after the first trailer, a title that sugge...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Avatar 2 delayed photo

James Cameron's Avatar 2 delayed yet again

Looks like that Avatar sequel James Cameron has been working on for years is getting pushed back yet again. This is not a repeat from the last few years. Avatar 2 was unofficially slated for a Christmas 2017 release after a previous delay, ...

See The 5th Wave early and free

Ready for some low-grade January destruction movie stylings? Early every year we get a slew of these types of movies and sometimes they can be really fun. The 5th Wave could be fun. It definitely has some interesting slants to it, at l...

 
 
 
Ridley Scott/The Prisoner photo

Ridley Scott wants to adapt The Prisoner for the big screen

Originally aired in 1967 and 1968, The Prisoner is one of the best TV shows of all time. Many directors have tried to bring it to the big screen, including Simon West and Christopher Nolan, and the show had a poorly received AMC remake in 2...

Michael Bay confirms he is back for Transformers 5

Michael Bay has made progressively worse Transfomers  movies since the original film was released and they have made progressively more money. Despite the fact that he's constantly talking about leaving the franchise he has yet to pass...

Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Sixteen years ago Star Wars returned, but it wasn't the return we were all hoping for. It was the return George Lucas wanted, which turned out to be not so good. Fans had constructed decades worth of universe and build up in their heads and...

It's here, guys. The trailer for Roland Emmerich's Independence Day: Resurgence is now on the interwebs, shown below with little comment for your viewing pleasure. Here's the official synopsis for the film: We always knew they were coming...

 
 
 
 
Lost in Space photo

Netflix making a Lost in Space series

I've never quite gotten the love for Lost in Space. Aside from the greatest robot ever the series always felt bland when I caught it on reruns. Then again, I thought the film adaptation was actually kind of interesting so take my opinion wi...

Matthew McConaughey up for villain role in The Dark Tower

If you said to me that Matthew McConaughey was going to star in The Dark Tower films being made I'd instantly think he'd be playing Roland, the Stephen King series's protagonist. However, Variety is reporting that he's been offered the...
