Taking on their first anthology, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (premiering on Netflix tomorrow, November 16th) features an impressive line-up of talent (including Tim Blake Nelson as the titular singing cowboy character) and a lot of Continue Reading...

Director/writer Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) teams up with novelist Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) for this movie version of an ITV series from 1983. So, there’s this bunch of thieves and they get blow’d up very shortly into the film (featuring an unusual amount of big-name actors in small roles). Left putting the pieces together are their wives. Liam Neeson Continue Reading...

Sometimes it really is the little indie films out of nowhere that surprise you the most. Take, for example, Time Trap. Made for a very low budget by an Austin School of Film alumni, its story about a group of young people that get lost in a cavern that exists outside of the normal flow of time is smart, fun, Continue Reading...
