Review: THE FOUNDER, There Will Be Burgers

The evolving nature of the film biopic has recently become quite interesting to me. Insofar as Pablo Larraín's Jackie is as much about Theodore H. White's Life magazine article as it is about the iconic First Lady, so John Lee Hancock's...

Review: SPOTLIGHT, A True Story Proves Both Enthralling And Appalling

Review: MINIONS Tickles Funnybone, But Scratches No Itch

(Nevertheless it will make.... MILLIONS!) In the increasingly vast catalog of computer-generated animated feature films, the two Despicable Me films aren't exactly considered to be top tier. Weak in story and painfully sentimental, what watchability they have is completely owned...

Joshua Chaplinsky's Favorite Films of 2014

It's that time of year again. When everyone and their mother's nephew's cousin foists their unenlightened opinions on the equally unenlightened masses. Consume, regurgitate, repeat. Why do we do it? You'd be better off asking Why is the sky purple?--because...

New York 2014 Review: BIRDMAN, A Visual and Comedic Feast For The Eyes and Mind

Iñárritu's BIRDMAN To Open Venice

BIRDMAN: Michael Keaton Flies Again In Groovy First Trailer

Michael Keaton sounds like he's channeling Christian Bale in the groovy first trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman. That would be the 1989 Batman, speaking with a gravelly Dark Knight voice as he remembers his past glories. The trailer begins...

Review: ROBOCOP, A Decent-Enough Reboot

Way back in 1987, a non-American director came to these shores to make a film that worked as both an explosive and violent action film, but also a cautionary tale about militarism of our police forces and the growing fascism...

Frankenstein Mechanics: ROBOCOP Trailer Aims For The Grim N' Gritty

I am not a child of the 80s. Per se. I was born in the 80s, but was far too young to see and to appreciate Paul Verhoeven's satirical actioner Robocop in its heyday. By the time my adolescence rolled...
