A New Wonder Woman Trailer is Here and It’s Stunning Nov03

A New Wonder Woman Trailer is Here and It’s ...

The newest and most gorgeous trailer from the DC Universe is here. The latest trailer for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman just dropped and gives us a much closer look at both the conflict at play and the aesthetic being used by DC this time around. The subtle use of comedy that was introduced in Batman v Superman and applied  heavy handedly in this year’s Suicide Squad appears to fit in much more seamlessly in Wonder Woman, largely due to Chris Pine’s natural charisma and Gal Gadot’s deadpan delivery. The feminine touch of Patty Jenkins can’t hurt either. In this trailer we get a glimpse of where Wonder...

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is Delightful Burton Oct07

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children ...

Overview: A young boy journeys to a children’s home to come to terms with the unusual death of his grandfather only to discover that the bedtime stories he was told as a boy we were fictional. Based on the 2011 novel by Ransom Riggs. 2016; 20th Century Fox; Rated PG-13; 127 minutes. Bizarre: Over the years, Tim Burton’s films have often found themselves under fire for lacking in depth and overflowing with outlandish visuals, often bordering on the bizarre. Burton’s signature, quirky style sometimes sacrifices the content for the cover. Sometimes subtlety works with his films, such is the case with 2014’s Big Eyes, but about half the time...

Documentary or Damnation & The Case of: JonBé...

This Christmas marks the 20th anniversary of the tragic, enigmatic death of six-year-old pageant starlet JonBénet Ramsey, and what would an unsolved cold case be without renewed publicity and scrutiny? I’ve had an admittedly morbid fascination with this case since shortly after it happened and a number of my parents’ friends began to comment with wonder how much I resembled the young victim with my permed, blonde hair, penchant for frilly dresses, and similar facial features. Now, almost 20 years later, I find myself obsessing over the various anniversary specials that have predictably begun flooding the networks. Everyone is...

Why leave the house, your couch, and your precious air conditioning to watch a great movie when there are plenty of options on demand? Here are our top picks for this month: Tallulah A Sundance Film Festival darling, Sian Heder both writes and directs this film about a roamer who elicits help in her attempt to raise an abandoned toddler.

Why I Think Ghostbusters Is 2016’s Most Impo...

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters finally hit theaters, and the reaction has been, well, mixed… to say the least. A wave of criticism of the all female reboot has clouded discussion in the months leading up to the film’s release, allowing a slew of sexist insults targeted at the cast and creators, the most racist and vile of which temporarily chased Leslie Jones off Twitter last week after the movie’s debut. Although Ghostbusters has been faced with an uphill battle for inane reasons, we can’t afford to allow the hate to have a louder voice than the love for the release of a film that showcases that women are finally...

Why FX’s The Americans Should Win Every Emmy Jul20

Why FX’s The Americans Should Win Every Emmy

Although the recent Emmy announcement was largely stuffed to the brim with the nominations we’ve all learned to expect over the recent years with shows like Modern Family, House of Cards, and Veep racking up their usual nods, one FX drama that has been criminally overlooked up until now has suddenly appeared on the radar. The Americans, the Reagan-era drama about two KGB agents living undercover in suburban Washington D.C. which wrapped up its fourth season a month ago, received five Emmy nominations this year, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Matthew Rhys), Outstanding Lead Actress in a...

The Devil Wears Prada: A Snapshot of Millennial Ps...

Ten years ago Meryl Streep graced us with her icy tone of disdain and fierce collection of handbags as Miranda Priestly, fashion tycoon and ruthless tyrant of the fashion magazine Runway. 2006 was five Oscar nominations (and one win) ago for Streep, and two nominations (and one win) ago for her costar Anne Hathaway, who played Andy Sachs, the mousy, serious journalist who struggles to maintain her values and her friendships during a cutthroat internship at Runway.  On the surface The Devil Wears Prada watches like a slightly confused combination of criticism and glorification of the high fashion industry, a shallow dip into the pool of...

Overview: The Avengers find themselves split down the middle when restrictive government regulations are demanded after a mission in Lagos results in several civilian casualties. 2016; Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures; Rated PG-13; 147 minutes. Years of Set-up: Captain America: Civil War is exactly the film it advertises itself to be, with epic fight sequences on a line of moral ambiguity pitting friend against friend instead of foe. Though falling as the third film in the Captain America series, this is really an Avengers film on steroids, spinning a turn table of superheroes, most of whom aren’t entirely clear on why they chose...

Why the World Needs a Worthy Wonder Woman Mar22

Why the World Needs a Worthy Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is set to make her solo feature film debut in 2017, which is groundbreaking for multiple reasons. First, this is the first female superhero film to be released in at least ten years, and second, this film is also directed by a woman. 2017’s Wonder Woman is being directed by Patty Jenkins, who helmed the 2003 Oscar-winning drama Monster, based on the life of the prostitute-turned-serial killer Aileen Wuornos. A superhero movie directed by a woman, starring a woman, is long overdue particularly with the explosive presence of Marvel and DC over the last few years that has filled our screens with an...

Walking the Straight and Narrow: Bisexual Represen...

J.J. Abrams sparked an internet blaze this week after answering a question about the possibility of an openly gay character being introduced to the canon in future Star Wars installments. His enthusiastic response that it would only make sense that a galaxy as fast as this one would contain characters of all sexual orientations and should be represented has, as you can imagine, ignited some pretty heated conversations on social media and strong opinions on various other outlets. Much of the sudden interest in the possibility of a gay storyline stems from a movement that erupted shortly after The Force Awakens that revolved around...
