MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Big Game’ Is The Original Action Film Summer 2015 Needs

Film: Big Game
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Onni Tommila
Directed By: Jalmari Helander

In a summer overrun with sequels and visually impressive, yet predictable action epics, Finnish director Jalmari Helander has found a way to make adventure films feel new once again.

There is a long-running tradition amongst the people in Finland where, upon reaching a certain age, boys are tasked with proving their manhood by hunting alone in the woods. Oskari (Onni Tommila), a young man with dreams of being as great a hunter as his father, is about to embark on that very same mission when Big Game

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Creep’ Is Incredibly Unsettling

Film: Creep
Starring: Patrick Brice, Mark Duplass
Directed By: Patrick Brice

I have never seen a found footage film quite like Creep, but I always wanted to. It’s a combination of horror, drama, and comedy that is so tightly wound that you never know what to expect from one moment to the next. Credit for this is owed as much to the script as it is to the cast, which consists of just two people, and even though I know it’s still a bit early in 2015 to say such things, I must admit I walked away from Patrick …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Ted 2′ Is The First Major Misfire Of Summer 2015

Film: Ted 2
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane
Directed By: Seth MacFarlane

Having established a new hero in the world of profane comedy with his initial outing, Seth MacFarlane has proven with Ted 2 what A Million Ways To Die In The West alluded to over a year ago: America’s turn of the millennium funnyman has lost his charm. To make matters worse, he’s pulling Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, John Slattery, and Morgan Freeman down with him.

Taking place one year, one marriage, and one divorce after we last said goodbye, Ted 2 reintroduces the characters you loved from the …

These Films Will Be Removed From Netflix By The End Of July

Netflix is the place basically everyone turns when they want to watch a movie without paying VOD costs or leaving the comfort of their home, but it’s important that we remember the streaming platform does not keep every title forever. In fact, the titles on Netflix are changing all the time, and in less than six weeks some of the greatest films currently streaming will no longer be available.

Today, June 22, Decider ran an article detailing the numerous films and TV shows that will be removed from Netflix between now and the end of July. The titles included run …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘I Believe In Unicorns’ Showcases Young Love

Film: I Believe In Unicorns
Starring: Natalia Dyer, Peter Vack
Directed by: Leah Meyerhoff

With whim and creativity to spare, I Believe In Unicorns may be the most innovative coming-of-age film you see all year.

Davina (Natalia Dyer) is a lonely teen girl who spends her days going to school, fantasizing about unicorns, and taking care of her invalid father. To say she seems depressed at the start of the film would likely be an understatement. It’s unclear whether or not Davina can even remember a time she felt joy when we first meet her, but soon life as she …

‘Jurassic World’ Just Had The Biggest Opening Weekend Of All Time

Move over, Avengers. The reign of superheroes atop the all-time box office charts may be nearing its end, as a new film from one of the most legendary franchises of all time just rewrote the book on big opening weekends.

We knew Jurassic World would be huge, but I doubt anyone could have predicted the film would be as successful as it is after only three full days of release. According to Deadline, industry analysts say the third Jurassic Park sequel generated $209 million during its first weekend of release. Some estimates place the film’s opening slightly lower, …

Six Documentaries On Netflix You Should Watch This Month

Summer is a time when studios churn out a new big budget blockbuster or two every single week, and though we’re only two weeks into June you can already feel the exhaustion that comes from a constant barrage of two-hour destruction porn spectaculars. It’s a common feeling every movie buff experiences this time of year, but lucky for us the cure is very simple and affordable. In fact, it’s so easy you don’t even have to leave your home. Just pull the shades, crank the AC, and turn on Netflix.

If you have not been paying attention to the world …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Old 37′ Will Make You Second Guess Calling 9-1-1

Film: Old 37
Starring: Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley
Genre: Horror

Everyone knows who to call when roadside emergencies occur, but what if your worst nightmare was the person, or people, who responded to your cries for help? That idea serves as the central premise for Old 37, which swerves from a bloody death fest to a chilling collection of incredibly unnerving sequences and back again with ease.…

Jurassic-World-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Jurassic World’ Is Pure Summer Fun

Film: Jurassic World
Starring: Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt
Directed by: Colin Trevorrow

Jurassic World is a loud, fun, and exhilarating thrill ride that offers plenty of eye candy for moviegoers young and old. It’s a bit dumb, but that’s okay.

Separated from their parents for the holidays, two brothers (the talented Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson) are sent to visit their aunt at the world’s greatest theme park. Jurassic World, built on the same island that hosted the original Jurassic Park, is a state of the art attraction featuring twenty different dinosaurs. The island welcomes twenty-thousand people a …

‘The Martian’ Trailer: Matt Damon Is Left Behind On Mars

Ridley Scott is taking audiences to Mars for his latest film, and so far the results look far more promising than Prometheus.

Earlier today, June 8, the first trailer for The Martian found its way online. The film tells the story of a man (Matt Damon) who must fight for survival on Mars after being left behind when the astronauts he was traveling with were forced to leave the big red planet in a hurry. His desperation is palpable from the opening moments, but soon he finds the strength within to push forward. He eventually makes contact with the …

’99 Homes’ Trailer: Michael Shannon Is A Real Estate Tycoon

If there is one economic story Hollywood has embraced in the last five years it’s the growing number of people who are losing their homes to foreclosure or related non-payment disputes. It’s a harrowing event for anyone to live through, especially those with children, and that translates to great on-screen tension for fictional events.

Today, the first trailer for Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes arrived online. The film follows a man (Andrew Garfield) who goes to work for the real estate tycoon (Michael Shannon) that recently evicted his family from their home. It’s a strange situation from the jump, and as …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Human Centipede: Final Sequence’ Flat-Out Sucks

Film: The Human Centipede: Final Sequence
Starring: Dieter Laser, Laurence R Harvey, Eric Roberts, Bree Olson
Directed by: Tom Six

Tom Six has somehow managed to ruin the fun of body horror and exploitation in just three films. If I wasn’t so pissed about that fact I might applaud him, but then again probably not as I have unfortunately sat through each of his three increasingly unwatchable feature-length creations.

The Human Centipede: Final Sequence serves as the final chapter of Tom Six’s medically impossible trilogy of extreme body modification and the monsters who carry it out. The film stars Dieter …
