Review: VENOM, A Cleaned Up, Toned Down, Baffling Misfire

Over the past two decades very few Marvel supervillains have been as visible to non-comic enthusiasts as Spider-Man's nemesis, Venom. Since his introduction to the world at large in The Amazing Spider-Man #300, the evil black goop from outer space...

New STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Trailer Paints a Grim Picture

Remember Bill Murray's character, Nick the lounge singer, on Saturday Night Live? And remember when he sang about Star Wars? And about how he'd never wish they'd end? Nick is the prophet of our time. Lucasfilm has gone ahead and...

Review: DUNKIRK, Nolan Styles Overwrought War Epic

After a slew of tired franchise entries and superhero tentpoles, the summer finally delivers a truly essential big screen experience. Austere and nerve-racking, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a bold big-screen gamble that employs an experimental structure and little in the...

Christopher Nolan's DUNKIRK Teaser: Wow, That's a Lot of Soldiers

The first teaser for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is not about the stars of the movie (including Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Kenneth Branagh) nor about the external forces that left Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France surrounded...

Review: THE REVENANT, An Admirable, Handsome Failure

It begins, as you might expect, with a sweeping shot that's equal parts glorious and gratuitous. For The Revenant isn't just some run-of-the-mill flick, this is Oscar-winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu's latest flick, a follow up for his much-lauded Birdman....

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Tops Online Critics Awards

George Miller's action epic continues to pick up steam in awards season as it was named Best Film of 2015 today by the Online Film Critics Society, of which a number of ScreenAnarchy's contributors are members. Miller also nabbed the...

Review: LEGEND, The Full Package, Including Two Killer Roles For Tom Hardy

THE REVENANT: DiCaprio Vs. Bears, Hypothermia, Gravity, Premature Burial And Tom Hardy In New Trailer

There is no shortage of snow-caked, visceral imagery on display in the second trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu's survival Western, The Revenant. This trailer offers a lot more Tom Hardy, who plays the villain of the piece, and a fair bit...

Toronto 2015 Review: In LEGEND, Double The Tom Hardy Is Double The Fun

Screen Anarchy's Top 10 Movies Of The First Half Of 2015

As mentioned before, the year 2015 is moving on with breakneck speed, it seems. Currently we're already at the halfway point, and can look back at what's been a pretty surprising cinematic six months. So we asked ourselves what we...

LEGEND: Watch Tom Hardy, And Tom Hardy, Rule 60s London In New Trailer

Is there anything better than watching Tom Hardy on screen? Well it turns out there is. Two Tom Hardy's is especially nice as the new trailer for Brian Helgeland's Legend. Hardy plays the dual role of the Kray brothers, Reggie and...

Destroy All Monsters: The Problem With The TOMORROWLAND Thesis

I enjoyed Tomorrowland. There was a joy about the way Brad Bird shot the film that reminded me of early Spielberg, and if the whole thing ends up turning on the audience's willingness to believe that George Clooney has harboured...

Hooray For Hollywood! Meet The Bullet-Points Memo

Welcome to a new semi-regular subsection that we like to call the "Bullet-Points Memo." The idea behind BPM is to highlight multiple contemporaneous entertainment business stories that seem interesting to us (and, hopefully, you). We will be pulling stories, ideas...

Destroy All Monsters: All We Have Are Our Bodies On FURY ROAD

In Mad Max: Fury Road, we get the great existentialist Western of our time. Save one character murmuring prayers in one shot to anyone who will listen, God is not in evidence. The movie is entirely bound up in human...

The Many Faces Of Charlize Theron

Mad Max: Fury Road is putting the pedal to the metal in cinemas worldwide, and two things have become apparent. One: reviews so far are almost ridiculously positive. Two: everyone agrees Charlize Theron is awesome. Thing number two shouldn't come...

The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Worlds of MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

What will the future look like? In Mad Max: Fury Road, director George Miller and his fabulous team conjure up strikingly distinct landscapes for what is, in essence, a chase movie. Yet it's a chase movie with great empathy for...

Review: MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, A Tour De Force Masterpiece

How's this for hyperbole: George Miller is the Australian Spielberg. You've got a director with a wide diversity of films (from The Road Warrior to Babe to Happy Feet), all injected with an almost preternaturally gifted ability to have...
