Directed by Peter Ramsey (Rise of the Guardians), Bob Perischetti (writer of The Little Prince), and Rodney Rothman (writer of 22 Jump Street), Sony’s animated spider-adventure Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars Shameik Moore as the voice of Miles Morales alongside Jake Johnson as Peter Parker. Both spider-dudes were front and center during Sony PlayStation’s countdown to the launch of the PS4 exclusive video game, and they showed […]

First ‘Camping’ Trailer Shows Wealthy People Yelling at Each Other

For those who thought that Girls went a little light on the plight of the wealthy white malcontent, Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner have returned with Camping, based on a British series of the same name. While I haven’t seen the UK’s version, I can only presume it’s more charming than this one, despite its star-studded […]

Finn Jones on Season 2 of ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’ and Facing Threats on Two Fronts

From showrunner M. Raven Metzner, Season 2 of Marvel’s Iron Fist (available to stream at Netflix) raises the stakes, in every way, as Danny Rand (Finn Jones), the Immortal Iron Fist, throws himself into his mission to defend the streets of New York City. With the day-to-day oversight of Rand Enterprises in the hands of […]

‘The Bad Seed’ Review: Lifetime’s Adaptation Is a Missed Opportunity for Campy, Dark Fun

Lifetime movies are usually a lot of fun, and there’s no shame in liking them. From Mother, May I Sleep With Danger (both versions) to the recent adaptation of V.C. Andrews’ Flowers in the Attic series to the 2015 surprise Will Ferrell / Kristen Wiig thriller Deadly Adoption, there is no guilt here about these […]

25 Things We Learned from the ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

Hocus Pocus, one of the campiest cult classics ever to be cooked up in a cinematic cauldron, delighted audiences 25 years ago. And as the new anniversary Blu-ray proves, the movie has never lost its magical touch. The story centers on the witchy Sanderson Sisters played uniquely and expertly well by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy […]

‘Daredevil’ Season 3 Teaser Trailer Reveals “Darkness Only Responds to Darkness”

To say the new Daredevil Season 3 teaser trailer is dark is both literally and figuratively true. The show has always been one that’s nearly impossible to view during the day because its dimmed visuals disappear with the hint of a sunbeam, and the teaser (which appears at the end of Iron Fist Season 2, […]

Ryan Reynolds’ Most Underrated Performances

Ryan Reynolds has had an interesting career thus far as a performer. He’s an incredibly popular guy, and easy to love, but in some respects that “iconic role” remained elusive until Deadpool came along. He’s tackled various types of characters over the course of his career, from romantic leads to wisecracking comedic foils to yes, superheroes, but he’s had […]

The ‘Conjuring’ Universe Explained: From Demon Nuns to Deadly Dolls

‘The Miniaturist’ Review: PBS’s Gorgeous Miniseries Is Also Wonderfully Spooky

At first glance, PBS’s The Miniaturist is a show that might be easy to dismiss. It takes place in 17th century Amsterdam, where the colors are (for the most part) particularly muted. It looks quiet, staid, buttoned-up. Its title refers to the maker of tiny items to go in doll houses. How riveting could that […]

‘Outlaw King’ Review: Bloody Scottish Epic Can’t Conquer a Weak Script | TIFF 2018

Outlaw King is an odd movie that strives for realism everywhere except where it matters most. From a technical perspective, you can see no expense has been spared in trying to recreate 1304 Scotland. You can practically smell the mud and the blood. But when it comes to telling a story in that setting and […]
