Logan is More than Just a Good Superhero Movie. It's a Great Movie. Period. [Review]
17 February 2017 2:05 PM, PST
At this point, the superhero genre has devolved into a yearly battle for delivering ever-more bombastic movies. Sometimes they have interesting stories but mostly it's about big action sequences smashed between some quirky dialog and maybe an inkling of story. Some of these movies are more fun to watch than others but of the comic book adaptations of the last few years, the most interesting work is being done on the small screen - until now.
This superhero/action/western hybrid unfolds in 2029. In this future, Logan is aging, healing slower than before and caring for Charles Xavier. Their not-so-peaceful l [Continued ...] »
Humanity's Final Departure in The Leftovers Season 3 Trailer
17 February 2017 9:42 AM, PST
The Leftovers' final season has finally received a a premiere date of Sunday, April 16 and I for one can't wait to check out the end of the show.
Last season saw Damon Lindelof doing some of his best work to date ("International Assassin" anyone?) and most people who watched the show agree it's now one of the cable network's most interesting shows.
This season finds the Garvey and Murphy families coming together as they desperately grasp for a system of belief to help better explain that which defies explanation.
The world is crackling with the energy of something big about to happen, a corresponding bookend to the Sudden Departure that sent them all spinning years earlier, bringing their journey Down Under.

The Void is Worse Than Hell! [Trailer]
15 February 2017 4:28 PM, PST
We've had our eyes on writer/directors Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie's horror offering The Void since the pair launched an IndieGoGo campaign in early 2015 when they were raising funds for the creature effects for their debut feature film.
Established practical effects gurus, Kostanski and Gillespie showed great promise and since that first preview of The Void, the pair have now finished and unleashed their vision of horror onto the world.
The movie premiered at Fantastic Fest last year and has completed a successful festival run and with a release imminent, we're now starting to see what exactly the pair have in store for us.

The Loved Ones Director Returns with The Devil's Candy [Trailer]
15 February 2017 2:11 PM, PST
It's always a little disconcerting when a movie kicks around the block for a few years before it finally sees the light of day. Sometimes its just logistics but in the case of horror movies, it seems that delay is usually connected with some degree of terribleness. That said, I'm not sure that's the case with The Devil's Candy.
Refn and Amazon Crime Series Too Old To Die Young
13 February 2017 5:14 PM, PST
Refn has teamed with Amazon for a straight to series order of 10 episodes for a crime series which will explores various characters’ existential journeys from being killers to becoming samurai’s in the city of angels. I don't know if that actually means samurai or it's used in the metaphorical fashion, but who cares.. it's Refn. Nicolas Winding Refn is directing, producing and co-wrote the series with Ed Brubaker who is partly behind Westworld. I'm glad alternative outlets such as Netflix and Amazon are giving film makers the opportunity to do series we wouldn't otherwise see.
We're a few days late on this but we can't pass this by.

Trailer for Pa Cannibal Awesomeness The Bad Batch
13 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST
If you haven't seen director Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night it comes highly recommended. That said, who's up for steroids, cannibalism, and a desert post apocalyptic wasteland? It stars Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi, Diego Luna.. and let's throw Jim Carrey in there. You know something is going to be awesome when Ribisi is in it.
The Bad Batch follows Arlen (Suki Waterhouse) as she is unceremoniously dumped in a Texas wasteland fenced off from civilized society. While trying to orient her unforgiving environment, she is captured by a savage band of cannibals and quickly realizes she’ll have to fight her way through her new reality. As Arlen adjusts to life in ‘the bad batch’ she discovers that being good or bad mostly depends on who you&r [Continued ...] »
