Every family has their tradition when it comes to the holidays. Ever since I was a kid, we would celebrate with my father's side of the family on Christmas Eve, and then with my mother's side on Christmas Day, a tradition that has remained unchanged to this day. There is one tradition that we added on Christmas Eve night, maybe a decade or so ago, after my younger twin brothers and I would come back to my mom's house after spending the day with our father. We would watch the obscure 1994 R-rated Christmas comedy The Ref. Not It's A Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story or A Miracle of 41st Street, but an underrated and underseen comedy starring Denis Leary, post-Remote Control, Kevin Spacey, pre-Oscar win and Judy Davis, post-Oscar nomination. While The Ref may not be as revered as those aforementioned movies, I will always watch The Ref every Christmas Eve, »
Right in time for Halloween, we wanted to share a couple new clips from the playfully meta horror comedy Fear, Inc, which is now available on VOD via Electric Entertainment. It stars Lucas Neff (Raising Hope), Caitlin Stasey (Reign), Chris Marquette (Fanboys), Stephanie Drake (Mad Men), Patrick Renna (The Sandlot), Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story), …

Fear Inc. introduces an idea that’ll have most horror fans licking their lips, but ultimately fails to stick multiple landings. Director Vincent Masciale attempts to out-meta heavyweights such as Cabin In The Woods, but his self-serving plea to genre lovers comes across as more desperate than inspirational.
Characters talk in dialogue from past genre classics, making Luke Barnett’s screenplay seem poser-ish by incessantly focusing on past classics instead of investing in a righteous fake company. Fun horror appreciation (a Mimesis inspiration) unravels as “reveals” keep on whiffing, until you’re sick and tired of hitting the restart button. Not everyone can be Shyamalan right out the gate, and – unfortunately – when tricks aren’t also treats, everything falls apart.

Not even Kendall Jenner was immune to the Bieber Fever. The 20-year-old caught up with W magazine and wasn't shy in admitting she once crushed on Justin Bieber, though he most certainly wasn't her first choice (that goes to Mike Vitar aka Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez from The Sandlot). "I was more into the Disney kids. Like, I think I had a crush on Zack and Cody [Dylan and Cole Sprouse] from Suite Life of Zack and Cody," she explained, before adding, "Justin Bieber was like the pop star of my time. I feel like I must have had a 12-year-old crush on him." Before you get any ideas, however, she quickly noted, "Not anymore though!" Speaking of crushes, »

The Sandlot (1993) plays this weekend (August 19th and 20th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series. It will also screen at noon on Saturday.
The Sandlot is a beloved film that over the last 23 years has gained quite a cult following thanks its joyous nostalgia that’s along the lines of A Christmas Story. Unlike many movies that claim to be family films, The Sandlot actually is a “family film”. Kids like it for the situations and dialogue, while adults relate to it as well. Young Scotty Smalls (Tom Guidry) moves into a new town and desperately wants to fit in with the rest of the neighborhood boys and in the summer of 1962, a bat and a ball is all it takes. A »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.
A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”
To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.
Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”
Who are we to argue with greatness?
