Our Favorite Faces Of Jake Gyllenhaal

Truth be told, I haven't seen Daniel Espinosa's Life yet. Recently I watched (and sometimes re-watched) a string of underwater monster films, so the itch I had for claustrophobic man-vs-creature film has been royally scratched. The one thing that might...

ALIEN: COVENANT Gets A Stunning New Poster

Normally we don't put up articles just for new poster art (unless it's a batch of them), but the new one-sheet for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has us partying like it's 1979! Seriously folks, click the image for a larger...

Short Film, Short Review: FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL...

What on Earth makes a man film a sex tape on a hidden camera, and post it on the Internet for all to see? Pride? Vanity? Stupidity? In Izzy Lee's short film For a Good Time, Call... you don't get...

Have Your Say: Which Animation Won't Ever Be Remade In Live-Action?

Look away all you want, it won't change the fact that Bill Condon's live-action Beauty and the Beast hauled in a whopping 170 million dollars last weekend. And you know what that means: we'll be getting more of these. "These"...

Our Favorite Faces Of Ewan McGregor

Two of the most anticipated North American premieres this weekend were Bill Condon's new Beauty and the Beast and Danny Boyle's T2 Trainspotting (seen above), both of which have Ewan McGregor in them. It's not the first time that he...

Screen Anarchists On KONG: SKULL ISLAND

Unless you've been living under a (skull-shaped?) rock, you're probably aware there is a new King Kong film in theaters. It's called Kong: Skull Island, and opinions about it within Screen Anarchy are divided, to say the least. Kwenton...

Have Your Say: Which Monster Should Be Next?

As Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island is currently raking in the dough worldwide, you can safely assume more creature features are being planned. Indeed, Warner Brothers hasn't made a secret of having a Godzilla sequel AND a Kong vs. Godzilla...

Our Favorite Faces Of Samuel L. Jackson

(Insert m**********r joke at will...) King Kong has returned to cinemas worldwide in Kong: Skull Island, causing a wide variety of reactions among audiences. Our Kwenton Bellette hated the film and told us so in his review. Me, I had...

Have Your Say: Which Film Would You Want To Forget... So You Could See It Again For The First Time?

Two weeks ago I saw Jacques Tourneur's classic horror film Night of the Demon, a first viewing despite me being curious about the film for over thirty years already. Surprisingly, after all that anticipation it didn't disappoint me. I loved...

Our Favorite Faces Of Hugh Jackman

Last weekend, James Mangold's Logan raked in both money and critical acclaim, a sign that we've definitely not heard the last of R-rated superhero films yet. Of course, a big factor of this particular title's success is due to people...

Have Your Say: What Was The Best Zombie Film Of 2016?

Oscars, Schmoscars. While I understand that it must be nice to be nominated (and even nicer to win), films aren't a sports event, and the very nature of art often renders straight comparisons meaningless anyway. Beauty is in the eye...

Our Favorite Faces Of Emma Stone

Last night, Emma Stone won the Academy Award for "Best Actress In A Leading Role", and good for her. Plenty of people dug La La Land and loved her performance in it. By all accounts she's a pretty nice person...

Rotterdam 2017 Review: THE WEDDING RING Allows A Beautiful Peek At A Different Culture

When we in the West think of the North African Sahel region, we tend to conjure up images of deserts, terrorism, war, famine, nauseating abuse of human rights... In short, the harshest environments and the nastiest works us humans are...

Rotterdam 2017 Review: WÙLU Shows A Thoughtful Rise To Criminal Power

In Malinese director Daouda Coulibaly's crime drama Wùlu, we follow the rise of Ladji, a bus driver in Mali's capital city Bamako, who decides to use his street-savvy for becoming a career criminal. Cheated out of a years-in-the-making promotion because...

Check This Prologue Clip For ALIEN: COVENANT

Well, that is new: 20th Century Fox has released a five minute prologue short for Ridley Scott's upcoming Alien Covenant on-line, and it plays like a big character introduction promo. We check the crew of a giant spaceship having a...

Have Your Say: What's The Best Theatrically Released Documentary Ever?

Theatrically released documentaries are a strange sub-class of film. Sometimes they can get away with not having a narrative or (other) technical merits, when the subject is interesting enough to just point a camera at. Sometimes, they take a mundane...

Our Favorite Faces Of Andy Lau

Last weekend, Zhang Yimou's fantasy epic The Great Wall premiered in North America, and while it's silly as hell, it is undeniably gorgeous-looking. While he did call it "nonsense", our J. Hurtado also said in his review that it's a...

Rotterdam 2017 Review: SISTER OF MINE Damns Your Eyes With Experience

In Pedro Aguilera's Sister of Mine we see Oliver, a jaded American filmmaker. One night he browses porn clips on the Internet, and discovers one which seems to feature his beautiful young Spanish half-sister Aurora, who he hasn't seen in...

Rotterdam 2017 Review: BAMSEOM PIRATES SEOUL INFERNO Challenges Our Sense Of Liberty

Documentaries tend to do well at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and each year several manage to get into the audience top-10. The 2017 edition has proven to be no exception, as there are three documentaries in the top-5 alone....

Have Your Say: IMDb Is About To Delete Its Message Boards

This weekend I was looking up something in the Internet Movie Database over on www.IMDb.com, and got distracted by a question in a message board. Intrigued and amused I started reading it, and as these things go I got even...
