"Dunkirk" Review

“Dunkirk” is the latest film from “Inception”, “Interstellar” and “Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan - the man who’s brought us mind-bending, dramatic and complex stories of bravery and adventure. “Dunkirk” may be Nolan’s simplest film to date. At an hour and 46 minutes it’s definitely one of his shortest, with a screenplay of only 76 pages.

Report: Ben Affleck's Future As 'Batman' In Doubt

In a mere 24 hours, the Justice League cast, including Ben Affleck will take center stage at Saturday's San Diego Comic Con — But appearances can be misleading, this according to a source close to THR who alleges Ben may not be DCEU's Caped Crusader for much longer. The source with close knowledge of the situation says 'the studio [Warner Bros.] is working on plans to usher out Affleck’s 'Batman' — gracefully, addressing the change in some shape or form in one of the upcoming DC films.'

"Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" Review

The trailers for “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” didn't exactly promise great things to come. Europa Corp. was originally supposed to distribute the sci-fi/fantasy action film on its own. Then STX Films (previously STX Entertainment) swooped-in to lend a hand, giving “Valerian” more of a fighting chance to attract the fanboy audience.

Interstellar (2014) Review

Interstellar (2014) Review

Christopher Nolan’s science fiction epic falters at a few moments particularly in the latter part of its second act, but nevertheless manages to be an ambitious and powerfully told tale of a bleak future that’s soaked in a foreboding sense of realism.

Death Proof (2007) - A Retrospective Review

"It's better than safe, it's Death Proof." — In 2007, filmmakers and longtime friends Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez embarked on an experiment that would look to pay homage to the double feature Grind House B-movies of the '70s with their trashy, exploitation driven themes and low production values. The project, aptly titled Grindhouse, would comprise of two main features shown back-to-back. Rodriguez's film, Planet Terror would be a schlocky, violent '80s style science fiction romp. Tarantino's segment, Death Proof, would pay homage to car films of the '70s such as Vanishing Point (1970), Two-Lane Blacktop (1971) and White Lightning (1973) but with a good dose of the slasher flick thrown in for good measure.

Inception (2010) Review

Inception (2010) Review

Conceptually, I can’t think of a film that has sparked my imagination in such a specific way as Nolan’s Inception. There’s much to be said of a filmmaker that’s given the leniency to go off and make an original film immediately after his enormous success with The Dark Knight. And Inception is a story Nolan sat on for the better part of a decade before finally putting it together.

The Big Sick (2017) Review

The Big Sick is directed by Michael Showalter (You're Whole, Hello, My Name is Doris) and stars Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, Adventure Time), Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks, What If), Holly Hunter (The Incredibles, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) and Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond, Ice Age). The Big Sick is an early awards frontrunner, can a romantic comedy really compete in the awards race?
