MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Unfriended’ Is Not Worth The Price Of Admission

Film: Unfriended
Starring: Heather Sossaman, Matthew Bohrer
Directed by: Levan Gabriadze

Serving as the first ‘all on-screen’ horror film to open in thousands of theaters nationwide, Unfriended boasts a relatively fresh gimmick and almost nothing else.

Remember that long period of silence at the beginning of Wall-E? Replace the colorful animation, comedy, and adorable robots with the computer screen of a high school-aged girl named Blaire who likes to watch videos online without making them full screen and you pretty much have the opening fifteen minutes of Unfriended.…

First ‘Sinister 2′ Trailer Reveals New Setting And Scares

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Sinister. There is no question that filmmaker Scott Derrickson knows how to make audiences feel uneasy in their seats, but I don’t know if that feature necessarily showcased his talent in the best light. The story, while occasionally unsettling, didn’t deliver the kind of lasting impact many modern horror films have been able to offer and almost no one has been talking about the upcoming sequel while titles like Poltergeist and Insidious 3 compete for viral fame.

Sinister 2, which arrives this summer, looks to make good on all the promises left …

Oh No, A Play-Doh Movie May Soon Be A Reality

Following the success of The Lego Movie, Hollywood execs began scrambling for other brands from our collective childhood that could be easily converted into box office gold. While I’m not sure 20th Century Fox has a sure thing on their hands, the studio’s latest acquisition is turning more than a few heads.

According to reports from a number of reputable outlets, 20th Century Fox is currently working on a plan to give Play-Doh its very own movie. That alone is surprising, but what makes this whole story even more interesting is the fact Bridesmaids mastermind Paul Feig is in …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Cut Bank’ Finds Murder And Mystery In A Quiet Town

Film: Cut Bank
Starring: Liam Hemsworth, Billy Bob Thornton
Directed by: Matt Shakman

Set against the backdrop of a quiet community too small to make national headlines, Cut Bank tells a story of murder and hope through the eyes of a desperate young man.

Liam Hemsworth is Dwayne McLaren, a twenty-something who has spent the better part of the last half decade wanting nothing more than to move out of Cut Bank, the small town he calls home. One day Dwayne’s life is forever changed when he and his girlfriend, Cassandra, witness the first murder in the community’s history, which …

Furious-7-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Furious 7′ Has Everything Franchise Fans Want (And More)

Film: Furious 7
Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker
Directed by: James Wan

Exhibiting a near-perfect mix of insane action sequences and emotional depth, Furious 7 proves there is still a lot of fuel in the Fast & Furious franchise.

We begin right where we left off. Having abandoned this universe after the reality-shredding plane chase and fight sequence that served as the finale of the last film, Furious 7 opens with Owen Shaw and his brother, Deckard, speaking in a hospital. It’s a brief and overtly straightforward conversation in which one brother asks the other who hurt him for the …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Superfast!’ Is The Worst Film Of 2015

Film: Superfast!
Starring: Alex Ashbaugh, Dale Pavinski
Directed by: Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer

In a not-so-shocking turn of events, the team behind Meet The Spartans and Vampires Suck have delivered yet another box office bomb with their latest work, Superfast!.

Billed as a parody of the Fast And Furious franchise, Superfast! stars a cast of unknown actors and actresses who sometimes look like people you might remember from the Fast And Furious movies, only this crew is far less toned. They have little to no acting ability, nor does the script give them anything to do other than phone …

Danny-Collins-Movie-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Danny Collins’ Is Al Pacino At His Very Best

Film: Danny Collins
Starring: Al Pacino, Annette Benning
Directed by: Dan Fogelman

Set in suburban New Jersey and littered with enough product placement to please Michael Bay, Danny Collins finds love, laughter, and redemption with a runtime under two hours.

Al Pacino was born to play Danny Collins. A one-time rockstar, Collins has spent the better part of the last four decades living a lie. He’s famous, but not because of material he wrote, and every single day for as long as he can remember that fact has eaten away at his soul, all while Collins did his best to …

‘Southpaw’ Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal + Boxing = Box Office Gold

All great boxing movies have to start with the protagonist being or becoming an underdog. In the case of the Jake Gyllenhaal-led film Southpaw, it’s the latter.

Billy “The Great” Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called “Southpaw,” consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife dead and sends him into a downward spiral. This leads Billy to dabble in drugs and alcohol, which later …

‘Hot Pursuit’ Trailer: Reese Witherspoon + Sofia Vergara = Big Laughs

Two years after The Heat proved women can hold their own in the world of action-comedies, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara have joined forces for a new feature we can’t wait to see.

Hot Pursuit tells the story of a promising young police officer (Witherspoon) who receives her first big assignment. She is tasked with transporting a key witness (Sofia Vergara) to a very important trial, but before that can happen a lot of gunplay and explosions occur, which propels the women–who of course could not be more different–on a spontaneous road trip while they try to figure out their …

EDITORIAL: What Will Be The American Movie Theater Experience In 2015?

After a trip to an AMC theater to see The Theory of Everything (which is an incredibly moving and powerful film that you must see), I found myself questioning the current state of the American movie theater experience. In a market where everything is now a “luxury” experience, it seems as if every theater is doing their best to turn themselves into a faux-luxury cinema – and to be honest, it feels completely unnecessary.

As a first-timer at this specific theater, I imagined my experience would be the same as most AMC theaters. Upon entering I found that the entire …
