Review: ANGEL HAS FALLEN, AKA #fakenews The Movie

It seems only fitting that a film so intent on parroting right-wing conspiracy theories in the guise of entertainment should be just as transparent and incomprehensible as the people who proffer such theories to the public in real life. The...

LONDON HAS FALLEN Trailer: "I Want You To Kill Me." Whatever You Say, Mr. President!

The unluckiest American president in history returns in a new trailer for London Has Fallen, which lays waste to a great city and gives a bunch of good actors an opportunity to earn some pocket change. Gerard Butler also returns...

Loads of end-of-season flicks to talk about, including the truly egregious TMNT, the barely-better-than-the-last-one Expendables 3, YA dystopian romp The Giver, and a brief shout-out to Frank and Calvary.Video embedded below...

Review: THE EXPENDABLES 3 Isn't Execrable...Mostly

"It's better than the last one!" Faint praise, perhaps, but given that Expendables films don't aim very high, it's probably praise that will be graciously accepted for The Expendables 3. Probably. It's fair to say the entire Expendables franchise...

THE EXPENDABLES 3 Teaser Has Everyone

You. Me. Sly. Dolph. Dr. Fraiser Crane. While we ain't yet to see a smidge of actual footage from the third outing of action movie veterans and young upstarts alike, this teaser does a tease right enough.  Patrick Hughes (Red...

Kelsey Grammer Boards THE EXPENDABLES 3

Review: WHITE HOUSE DOWN Lacks Colour, Depth

Way back several weeks ago, somewhere near the Ides of March, a magical little film was released about a bunch of terrorists taking over the White House. It was big, brash, bold and sometimes quite preposterous, but there wasn't a...

AnarchyVision: Talking SPRING BREAKERS, ADMISSION, and OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN

This week saw a bunch of films worth talking about, including what for me is the first non-awful Harmony Korine film Spring Breakers, the innocuous and thus disappointing Admission, and the best goddamn movie of the weekend, Olympus Has Fallen...

Review: I've Fallen For OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN

I think the only proper way to fully convey the power, the majesty, the sheer awesomeness of Olympus Has Fallen is to do so with the same level of bombastic hyperbole that the film exhibits. It's as if the...

Handsome Bodyguard Protects Handsomer President. OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN Trailer
